Who won the debate tonight?
An honest home run in style and subtance !!!!
Bush looked very confident, very personable, and made his points extremely well (especially in pointing out Kerry's record).
favorite quote: "You can run, but you can't hide" from your voting record senetor Kerry
Bush came out very strong during the first 15 min and during the abortion issue, but other than that he left open many key opportunties to attack Kerry.
Overall, I'd have to say that this debate either goes in Kerry's favor or is a tie, in which case Kerry still wins since he will continue holding the lead in Ohio and Penn.
I thought Bush did absolutely wonerful!!!!!!! Bush dominated this debate with confidence,facts and a little charm. This was the George Bush we all know. The media is going to critisize the hell out of him,and i say ignore them-they are not in touch with the American people.
:clap1: :clap1: :clap1: for G.W.!!!!!!!!
Did you see at the very end of the debate when they cut the mic's off and Bush leaned over to Kerry and said something then started laughing. You know what he said, He said I just kicked your ass you slimeball!
The president really collected himself and did a much better job in this debate. I'd call it a draw, possibly leaning toward the president's column. He was straightforward on abortion, and Kerry had to say 90 seconds of nothing in order to not anger the pro-life camp, however I think he filled the time decently.
I want to hear more from the president about embrionic stem cells that will remain frozen or be destroyed and why these aren't viable for use in research.
My favorite quote: "Want some wood?"
I thought that quote was funny :teeth:
Personally I thought Bush did very well. So much better that Friday.
President Bush is at his finest in a setting where he can exploit one of his strongest assets - the ability to convey his feelings in plain, conversational English. In other words, he is absolutely unafraid to speak the truth of his heart.
One pundit opined that each candidate played well to his base. Maybe that's pretty close to the truth. For my part, the President had me cheering and shouting several times. I think he took some people's breath away when he categorically denied that he will seek the draft.
To sum it up, I think that President Bush did a great job of exposing John Kerry's attempt to hide who he essentially, ideologically is (The Senator won't raise your taxes? That's just not credible - look at his record!), while showing himself to be, as always, an open book. Way to go, Mr. President - kick ass!
I especially found it funny that Kerry claimed calling him liberal was a scare tactic
