Quotes

  • A Quiet Man: Over the course of several weeks in 2002, this candidate repeatedly refused requests by citizens in the candidate's own state, leaders of both major political parties, major news organizations and Project Vote Smart staff to provide voters with essential issue information in the 2002 National Political Awareness Test. This candidate would not provide this information to citizens in the candidate's own state - no matter who asked them, when they were asked or how they were asked.
  • On Iraq Exit: "We see Senator Kerry going and being spun in the political winds while the President remains strong, remains forceful," He noted. "He truly is a leader in a very difficult situation in Iraq, and that's why I feel so very committed to supporting the President."
