Kerry's Poor Taste

I didn't believe it at first. I read this off a page with several Bush ads, so it was a little suspect. Then I found it in the San Fran Chron too. Who does this guy think he is?!
I wasn't aware of this, but Kerry's in Iraq (or was). Making himself look like an ***. He met with soldiers there:
The senator said he was more interested in asking questions of soldiers, U.S. officials, Iraqis and even the journalists themselves instead of rehashing the political battles of the past campaign season.
But in several instances, Kerry attacked what he called the "horrendous judgments" and "unbelievable blunders" of the Bush administration. The mistakes, he said, included former U.S. occupation leader Paul Bremer's decisions to disband the Iraqi army and purge the government of former members of Hussein's Baath Party. Both moves are widely believed to have fueled the largely Sunni insurgency.
"What is sad about what's happening here now is that so much of it is a process of catching up from the enormous miscalculations and wrong judgments made in the beginning," he said. "And the job has been made enormously harder."
He added, however, that it was time to move forward.
"Mistakes have been made," he said. "Now, it's a different time and different set of judgments that have to be made. I'm here to make judgments about what moves are available to us."

A few thoughts...
Kerry first says he doesn't want to "rehash" his lost election, then he goes ahead and rehashes it. Personally I don't think Kerry ever flipped-flopped. He just wanted to have it both ways. He's still trying to have it both ways.
...not to mention how tasteless it is to talk-bad about somebody's boss, who happened to win more votes than you did.
Why's he in Iraq trying to "figure out his moves".

Memo to lost!
