Ask Osama bin Laden if he is better off now? John Kerry pondered that question in his speech yesterday. I have been pondering that question myself since last night. I’m not really sure that I understand Mr. Kerry’s motivation. Can we even ask Osama bin Laden that question? If we only could what might his response be?
I don’t know. Is it me? I realize that it forces us think outside the sippy box but it seems that the only possible answer to this question is no. I mean, the man is supposed to be dead. Does John Kerry imply that being dead is better than being alive? Does John Kerry imply that we are all now dead??
I’m not really sure what Mr. Kerry is getting at with that question. If he is trying to bump up the merits of the current regime, well that certainly doesn’t say much. Are we supposed to be better off dead than having survived 4 years under Barack Obama?
On a macro scale, Mr. Kerry has helped guide us to the correct answer to the question that is being asked in the cyber world: Are we better off now than we were 4 years ago? If death is not the preferable state, the only logical answer is an unequivocal no.
With this being the answer, Mr. Kerry leaves no doubt that he is supportive of the Romney/Ryan ticket. We should all take Mr. Kerry's sage advice.
This is not satire folks. We have here a gentleman who could have become President of the United States asking the most ridiculous question I have ever heard in a nationally televised speech.
