Statement from Senator Norm Coleman: Senator John Kerry on both sides of the Israeli Security Fence

"President Bush has provided steady leadership during the past three years of historic change. His policies have made America stronger and safer as we address the challenges of our time.

"Senator John Kerry's policies and inconsistencies should concern Florida voters. In a speech before the Arab American Institute, Kerry labeled the Israeli security fence a barrier to peace. Then, four months later, speaking before a group of New York primary voters, Kerry flip-flopped on the issue, labeling the fence a legitimate act of self defense. This is not the kind of leadership that Americans are looking for.

"In these challenging times Americans need and appreciate the strong and steady leadership President Bush is providing."
