Welcome. The aim of this site is simple - to rail against the slow, but steady chipping away of traditonal American values by a host of groups & individuals bent on destroying them.

Final Debate - Bush Edges Kerry

Walking into what was touted as Kerry's territory of domestic issues, Bush came out of it handily. Bush looked good, sounded good, was aggressive with Kerry & had the substance to fend off Kerry's statistics & plans. Bush was the more affable & showed his typical sense of humor. Kerry sounded good, but looked less than good - was his left eye drooping? Kerry droned on too long in his answers, but he did have the wherewithal to throw out numbers, whether they were correct or not. Kerry was somewhat aggressive & his style was good, but no more so than Bush. Amazingly, Kerry managed to smile toward the end when he made a joke about marrying up.

Bush projected optimism, something Kerry never seems to express. Kerry stumbled in answering some questions, whereas Bush answered smoothly with detail.

But I think the average viewer will come away with the impression that, despite all the statistics & numbers & ideas & plans of both, they will feel more comfortable with Bush - that there is more of a connection with him than with Kerry. And so Bush has edged Kerry on this debate & "won". If Kerry was hoping that his debate would garner him more votes, then it fell short of expectations.

As an aside - I think Kerry was off base bringing up Cheney's daughter's sexuality. That is a private family matter. I think it was purposely meant as a snide remark by Kerry aimed at Cheney's Christian Right base, especially since he used the term "lesbian", rather than using the typical liberal parlance of "gay". An unwarranted dig by Kerry.

The president dominated last debate and I expected him to do the same again. He did well again tonight, but I've got to say my world was turned upside down tonight! I was just shocked to see a Democrat who didn't pander the anti-Christian, anti-religious, devil worshiping wing of the party! I have no doubt that those voodoo worshippers are going to fry for it! The man actually showed conviction and he seemed sincere. He talked about his faith and I connected with that message. I'm not sure if I could ever vote for a Democrat, but based on tonight I entered the undecided column.

Hmm - I curious on what part of the debate put you into the undecided column, since this is a clear choice between two philosophies. Was it the man or the message? What part of the man or what part of the messeage?

The term I hear most in describing homosexuals is "Gay and Lesbian". I always thought these were seperate entities with Gay describing male homosexuals. If Gay described females also then there would be a redundacy in also saying Lesbian.

Only a diehard Republican would think that Bush won the last depate.

Instant polls again awarded the debate to the Massachusetts Democrat, giving him a clean sweep of the three. A Gallup poll found he won 52-39 per cent; a CBS poll scored it 39-25 per cent; and ABC News poll put it at 42-41 per cent.

The election is now in the voters hands.

I didn't know there was a devil worshipping side to the Democratic Party. Must be remmants of FDR's legacy. You know the one. That horrible Democratic President that took on Hitler and made sure poor Americans wouldn't starve during the Depression.

More Republican compassion. Bush continues to allow banking laws to be weakened. The FDIC wants to repeal the Community Reinvenstment Act of 1977. I guess there are too few votes for Republicans in poorer neighborhoods.

Yes. That FDR. And what was Bush's Grandpappy doing? Oh. He was financing the Nazis.
