Joplin, Mo. – Campaigning in Missouri Wednesday, Vice President Cheney said John Kerry lacks deeply-held convictions about right and wrong.

In Joplin, Cheney said voters would make a grave mistake if they replaced President Bush in November.

On the southwest Missouri stop, Cheney made some of his harshest criticism of Kerry.

For example, he said he wouldn't trust the four-term lawmaker to make decisions about going to war.

Cheney also defended the White House policy limiting federal funding for embryonic stem cell research. He said Bush will continue to defend what the vice president called "the culture of life" in a second term.
