Sen. Kerry's record on defense spending.

Here's a quiz for voters everwhere: Who said the following quotes:

  • "We are putting blindfolds over our pilots' eyes"

  • "The amendment offered by the senator ... would reduce the fiscal year 1994 budget for national defense by nearly $4 billion, We have already cut defense spending drastically. ... Cutting another $4 billion is simply unwise and insupportable."

  • "It makes no sense for us to close our eyes and ears to developments around the world"

  • Answers?
    Senators Daniel Inouye (D-HI), Robert Byrd (D-W.Va), Dennis DeConcini (D-Ariz), all regarding Sen. Kerry's proposed cuts in defense-spending, 1994.

    If any of those Senators had the courage of their convictions, they'd either produce contrary proposals from Sen. Kerry that would offset this position, or refuse to support the Senator whenever the topic of defense funding comes up.
