    Mr. Pot, please meet Mr. Kettle 

    Rudolph Giuliani, former New York mayor, knows a flip-flopper when he hears one. He said so during the first night of the Republican National Convention.

    ``John Kerry's record - John Kerry's record of inconsistent positions on combating terrorism gives us no confidence that he'll pursue such a determined, difficult course.''

    Inconsistencies such as those found in statements collected here:

    On Sept. 12, 2001 - This battle will take time and resolve. But make no mistake about it: We will win.

    In 2002 - We will win, because of what we love. We will win because we're determined and strong. We will win because we're a nation which holds values dear to our heart. And we refuse to be intimidated by anybody, at any place, at any time. We will win because we want to uphold our duty and obligation to leave America intact and free, so future generations of people, Hispanic or otherwise, can realize dreams, can succeed, can realize their God-given talents. That's what this is all about.

    In 2003 - We will prevail. We will win because our cause is just. We will win because we will stay on the offensive. And we will win because you're part of the finest military ever assembled. And we will prevail because the Iraqis want their freedom.

    In 2004 - We will win this test of wills, and overcome every challenge, because the cause of freedom and security is worth our struggle.

    On Aug. 30, 2004 - Can we win (the war on terror)? I don't think we can win it.

    ``Yes, people in public office at times change their minds, or they realize they're wrong,'' Giuliani acknowledged. ``I have, others have, or circumstances change.''

    The circumstance that changed here is that these are George W. Bush's words, not John Kerry's.

    - Steve Love
