    I think that Kerry won. But I'm wondering if this is because Kerry made a great impression, or was it because Bush simply sounded ridiculous trying to defend his decisions regarding this war that never truly ended. On a side issue, Kerry made me smirk everytime he appeared to be writing down some of Bush's comments. I'm already convinced that I'm not voting for Bush, only an act of God would convince me otherwise.

    Kerry Will Restore American Dignity

    Kerry Will Restore American Dignity

    2004 Iconoclast Presidential Endorsement

    Few Americans would have voted for George W. Bush four years ago if he had promised that, as President, he would:

    • Empty the Social Security trust fund by $507 billion to help offset fiscal irresponsibility and at the same time slash Social Security benefits.
    • Cut Medicare by 17 percent and reduce veterans’ benefits and military pay.
    • Eliminate overtime pay for millions of Americans and raise oil prices by 50 percent.
    • Give tax cuts to businesses that sent American jobs overseas, and, in fact, by policy encourage their departure.
    • Give away billions of tax dollars in government contracts without competitive bids.
    • Involve this country in a deadly and highly questionable war, and
    • Take a budget surplus and turn it into the worst deficit in the history of the United States, creating a debt in just four years that will take generations to repay.

    What a BLOG! Kerry knocked this DEBATE, out of the park. :playball: I laughed out loud at BUSHS expressions... :terrific:

    My son said bush was getting smacked. He gave a me a visual, of Kerry holding Bush by the shirt collar, and smacking him, saying; You lied! You Lied! You Lied!

    First blood to Kerry in TV debate

    First blood to Kerry in TV debate

    Julian Borger in Miami
    Friday October 1, 2004

    John Kerry regained the initiative in the US presidential race last night with a forceful performance in his first debate with George Bush, occasionally leaving the president scowling and at a loss for words.

    Instant-response polls by three major television networks all showed that a large majority of their viewers thought the challenger had won the 90-minute verbal contest at the University of Miami - the first of three debates in the last month of the campaign.

    Perhaps even more seriously for President Bush, the networks ignored broadcasting guidelines agreed beforehand and showed both candidates at the same time. On several occasions, Mr Bush could be seen sour-faced and nervous in reaction to some of Mr Kerry's remarks. ( I laughed during every cut away. ) I'm disappointed my VCR didn't record the comedy show?

    :thinking: Gotta get Tivo.

    Similar "cut-away" shots of Al Gore in the first presidential debate four years ago sapped his campaign and helped put Mr Bush into office.

    Issues again

    Why do people say topics like Gun Control, and Abortion are popular wedge issues.

    The truth is these are very unpopular issues. They are used often to take the focus off domestic issues, and will be used in te third debate to paint a picture of Kerry as gun control candidate. Or a person pro abortion.

    Kerry should state what Tupac said: " how a man going to tell a woman when and how to make a baby? "

    On Gun control, there should be some kind of regulation. I advocate serializing the casings. They are always left at the scene of a crime! :darts:

    This is true about the wedge part of this comment. These two topics take too much of our interest everyday, everyyear, and every election year.

    This is what I saw on Bush
    His body language was poor he was leaning on the podium
    His answers where half and he repeated himself over and over
    His numbers where wrong...way off….he even talk over Kerry a few times
    he was not prepared for this debate at all or he thought Kerry was gone be a easy battle..
    which ever it was the man was stuck on slow
    just very sloppy and to think this man leads a country…smh


    Peace
    Angel
