A Republican Subs for Kerry With Relish

BOSTON, June 28 - So much for party unity.
First, John Kerry, the putative Democratic presidential nominee, decided Sunday not to attend the annual meeting of the nation's mayors here, refusing to cross a picket line of police union members feuding with Boston's mayor.
Then, on Monday, Boston's mayor, Thomas M. Menino, who is not only a Democrat but also the host of the Democratic National Convention here in July, welcomed a stand-in for Mr. Kerry: Mitt Romney, the Republican governor of Massachusetts.
Mayor Rich Borer Jr. of West Haven, Conn., a Democrat, said he believed that Mr. Kerry should have attended and might even have been able to mediate an agreement between the city and the union.
"It makes it a little more difficult for me as a man to sit there and say Kerry is the guy when he didn't show up," Mr. Borer said.
Kerry sure keeps "sticking it" to Boston--first the nomination flap now this...
Actually it is good to see another area he shows some consistency in besides inconsistency, but it sure seems he takes Massachusetts BLIND support for granted.
Menino is none too happy by now! LOL
