Actually, the whole John Kerry quote is, "I believe I can fight a more effective, more thoughtful, more strategic, more proactive, more sensitive war on terror that reaches out to other nations and brings them to our side."
He was speaking of doing the opposite of squandering good will and rebuilding relationships with needed allies that Bush severed.
The second Kerry quote is also paraphrased to the point of being misleading. What he said exactly was, "I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it." Kerry was referring to a measure he co-sponsored that would have provided the $87 billion while also temporarily reversing Bush's tax cuts for those making $400,000 a year or more. That measure was rejected 57-42.
