    John McCain looked like he was on the verge of blowing his temper, in one of his famous eruptions. I think Obama won this debate. John McCain realizes that his campaign is unraveling faster than a set of Firestones. This is McCain's last chance! And he blew it. He blew it when he picked Sarah Palin as his VP.:eusa_whistle:

    And President Bush's....kennedy spent time in the whitehouse, coming to compromises on the Bill....

    I don't think many republicans in congress were thrilled over it, but maybe a handful, they voted for it none the less because President Bush asked them to and many of them were all lock step with Bush on most all....even if they differed with him, they all seemed to want to show him their support, on whatever he wanted....if memory serves me.

    It was President Bush's INITIATIVE....maybe he did let ted kennedy write the whole thing, that i can't prove one way or the other...I do know while it was being writen and negotiated, Kennedy spent a great deal of time at the Whitehouse...

    There is more of a connection between the kennedys and the Bush's than one would think.....

    yeah, you're right...last part says kennedy crafted president bush's initiative...so he did write it...but i still maintain Bush had input...and remember kennedy having to meet bush regarding it....

    Did you see who the sponsors were? Bush always touted it as a BIPARTISAN effort and then the repubs wouldn't fund it.

    So now not only is the economy the dems fault but now no child left behind is too?

    And everything bush did wrong for the past 8 yrs is because he was reaching across the isle?

    Republicans should have spoke up before the 04 election, but they didn't.

    And maybe we should give the gop 8 yrs of complete control since 6 wasn't enough.

    What a joke.
