Don't Call Me A Liberal!

Flashback 1988

Bush The First: “please understand, the liberals do not like me talking about liberal. They don't like it when I say that he says he's a card carrying member (of the ACLU)”

Dukakis: ... the vice president is questioning my patriotism. I don't think there's any question about that, and I resent it. I resent it.

Bush The First was right, and it was only very late in the campaign that Dukakis finally declared himself as a liberal, and got a surge, but it was all too late and too little.

Flash forward 2004:

Bush The Second: First, the National Journal named Senator Kerry the most liberal senator of all. And that's saying something in that bunch. You might say that took a lot of hard work.

So, did Kerry do the right thing, and proudly talk about the wonderful American history of liberalism? Did he proudly claim Franklin Roosevelt as a liberal - remember the New Deal? Did he claim the GI Bill as a liberal accomplishment? Did he recall the fight against child labor, and sweatshops in the US? How about the civil rights struggle?
