I recieved a list of quotes today that I recieved in 2000. Interestingly enough, they sounded familiar back then too.  I did a little research and found out that the following is an urban legend — that is to say neither Kerry nor Bush said them (as is often stated).  It was in fact Dan Quayle who is responsible for most of these things.
 
 
ORIGINAL MSG TO ME QUOTED BELOW:
We all know that Bush has made some embarrassing statements (there’s at least 5 books I can think of off the top of my head that have his de-witticisms in them), but Kerry hasn’t even taken office yet, and his are piling up:
 
“The vast majority of our imports come from outside the country.”
– John F. Kerry
  
“If we don’t succeed, we run the risk of failure.”
– John F. Kerry
  
“I have made good judgments in the past. I have made good judgments in the future.”
– John F. Kerry
  
“The future will be better tomorrow.”
– John F.. Kerry
  
“I stand by all the misstatements that I’ve made.”
–  John F. Kerry
  
“We have a firm commitment to NATO, we are a part of NATO. We have a firm commitment to Europe. We are a part of Europe.”

“A low voter turnout is an indication of fewer people going to the polls.”
– John F. Kerry 
 
“We are ready for any unforeseen event that may or may not occur.”
– John F. Kerry 
 
“For NASA, space is still a high priority.”
