3 words: Dueling stump speeches

Phillip said...

And Bush wouldn't know what any of those words mean.

Ian McGibboney said...

Hmmm...stump speeches? Let's break it down:

Kerry--answered every question on target, spoke well off the cuff, was sharply on the offensive all night, made very bold accusations and backed them up with sharp facts, and even made Bush utter Osama bin Laden's name for the first time since July 2002

Bush--paused more than he actually spoke, randomly regurgitated the same nonsensical lines, wildly evaded every question with a completely unrelated pat answer

If that's Kerry's stump speech, then this election should be a lock. Bush's rhetoric redefined "stump speech," as in, "dumb-as-a-stump speech."

Every American citizen should be hanging his/her head in shame at having to admit that man is the leader of this nation. He couldn't even gag out his own pre-scripted talking points, for crying out loud, much less actually answer any of Jim Lehrer's questions!

John Kerry could have read the RNC platform from start to finish and Bush would still have been trying to paint him as a flip-flopper with the wrong ideas for America every time Kerry paused to draw breath. Bush was a disgrace to this nation and to his party. Kerry won this thing before the first hour was half over, when he said that Bush's policy on Iraq could be summed up in four words: "More of the same."

Game over. There's a village in Texas that will be getting its idiot back in three months.

Official Kerry cocksucker Joe Lockhart: “The consensus is it was a draw.”

Ian McGibboney said...

I agree, it WAS a draw--a draw of blood and voters by Kerry from Bush.

Phillip said...

Consensus among whom? Karen Hughes and Robert Novak?

Michael said...

Funny. The people who voted in all the polls seem quite certain that it was a slam-dunk for Kerry. Why do you hate democracy, Tom?

I thought Kerry spoke well last night compared to Bush. In fact we heard concisely that he didn't call Bush a liar, even though he did. I heard him claim that the Bush administration put unilateral sanctions on Iran, even though it wasn't his admin. I also heard the most scary thing: That pre-emptive war should only be taken if the global society finds it legitimate. Great. So other countries will get to decide what is "legitimate" and decide if we can protect ourselves. Go Kerry!

Don't you wish that the two men could be at a table and just have at each other for 90 minutes as opposed to that format?

Ian McGibboney said...

For your boy's sake, Carl, you'd better hope they never agree to a free-for-all format. Even you yourself (on your own site) said that Bush was not in top form last night.

Michael said...

You forgot the best whopper of the night, Carl. That was when your man Bush said that his huge tax cuts for his wealthy campaign contributors were more important than securing our ports and our borders against terrorists. The only reason we have a "tax gap" that Kerry would have to overcome to fund his homeland security proposals can be concisely expressed in three words: Bush. Tax. Cuts.

MIchael,

I think the whopper of the night was when when the Great Pumpkin didn't realize it wasn't Bush's administration who put sanctions on Iran. Wait, no that wasn't the whopper, the whopper was when Kerry suggested we should give Iran nuclear fuel to see what their intentions are.

That's sounds like a great idea from the used car salesman.
