Lehrer didn’t actually threaten to beat them for leaving their phones on. But I bet he would, given the chance. Then again, so would I.
Bush: “People know where I stand. People out there know what I believe.” Yep.
Bush is a little nervous, but he’s being himself, which I like. Nice to see Kerry taking Dennis Miller’s advice.
Kerry: “I will hunt down and kill the terrorists wherever they are.” Really? Pre-emptively, you mean?
He made it all the way to question three before mentioning Vietnam.
Osama’s in Afghanistan, huh? For all I know, he might be, but I wonder whose intelligence figured that out. Kerry doesn’t think it was ours.
Iraq isn’t a center of terror? That explains this morning’s car bombing.
Have we EVER gone to war with a “plan for peace?”
Was Kerry just bitching about 12,000 Humvees without armor?! When he voted AGAINST the $87 billion?!
“We’ve got weapons of mass destruction crossing the border every day.” Really, Mr Kerry? I thought there weren’t any WMDs. *
That must be some kind of record. Kerry just agreed that Saddam was a threat.
Whoa. He just went back to not invading. I think I have whiplash.
Kerry: “I’ve never used the harshest word, that you just used.” Hmmm. I’ll take that bet. But it’ll have to wait til morning. *
Kerry: “Nuclear materials that didn’t exist” You mean that yellowcake?
Kerry: “I’ve worked with them for twenty years” When he shows up.
And Kerry swings back to Iraq being a good idea.
Kerry: “One consistent position” He hasn’t even had one consistent opinion in the past five minutes.
Bush isn’t the most eloquent speaker, but I never feel like I’m being schmoozed.
Since I’m sure people are bashing Bush for some slip of the tongue out there already, I’d like to mention Kerry’s “I’ve been fighting for proliferation… er, anti-proliferation for years.” Oops.
“Pass the Global Test”?! We need France’s permission? Spain’s, maybe? Lichtenstein? Cuba? Iceland?
Bush: “trying to be popular… makes no sense.”
Did Kerry just say that we should have given Iran nuclear materials?! And then wait and see what they do with it?!
Kerry wants to add two active duty foces to the military? Where’s he going to get the manpower for that? From a draft?
Kudos to Bush for not taking a cheapshot after saying he admires Kerry’s 20 years in congress, considering how often Kerry doesn’t turn up for to vote. A better man than I.
Kerry on chuckling at Bush’s daughters. Eh. Nice.
Kerry: “I’ve never wilted in my life. I’ve never wavered in my life.” HAHAHAHAHA!!!!
Kerry says nuclear proliferation is the biggest risk to our country. And the natural answer, of course, is that we should give our enemies (Iran) nuclear materials. Yep.
Kerry wants to shut down the nuclear bunker buster project, because it’s hypocritical? That’s like taking guns away from cops because we don’t want murderers to have them.
Why is Kerry so opposed to having China involved with getting North Korea to give up their nukes? He said at least three times that he wanted it to be bilateral only. Why? Apart from the hypocracy, since he’s the “global test” guy, what’s the problem with China?
Bush: “I’m a pretty calm guy. I don’t take it personally.”
Kerry: “I don’t fall down. That son of a bitch knocked me over.”
Kerry: We will make ourselves “respected again in the world.” You mean after Clinton?
