Posted on 10/05/2004 7:38:10 PM PDT by Howlin
After-debate discussion here!
You ventured the idea you'd rather have Cheney in office as President, highly complimentary on his conservatism and performance tonight. I do not deny he is qualified for the Presidency and he did well. I have also been vocal about how I wouldn't mind him on our '08 ticket as Prez.
My response to you was that the policies Cheney has defended and worked on have been put forth by THIS President.
Rather than acknowledging that, you retort Cheney had a bigger role than we are aware of.
If YOU do not mean to imply Cheney is largely responsible for the President's successful policies, fine, I will accept your word.
I do not deny Cheney offers important imput as does every member in the administration. What I am sensitive to is the suggestion the President is overly dependent on Cheney, charges usually advanced by the Left.
G.W. is the President, he sets forth policy. The successes Cheney defended tonight Bush put in place and Cheney certainly deserves credit for their implementation, but there is no question Bush leads this administration.
Yes, I think it was very evident that stature-wise, Cheney was several notches above Edwards, who is no Joe Lieberman. I thought Cheney scored repeatedly on foreign policy. He clobbered Edwards on the Iraqis, and the Kerry position of saying he'll bring in more allies, all the while he's slandering the ones we do have.
I think Cheney was not going to attack Edwards' Senate record, as he really isn't the issue, Kerry is. But after the Halliburton, Halliburton, Halliburton stuff, he let it fly and it was beautiful. A debate version of "Go F*** Yourself!!!"
I couldn't believe them, myself. By saying that "marriage is between a man and a woman... but.." (which is actually reasonable and the moderate Republican approach anyway) Edwards was making a transparent attempt to have it both ways-- to not appear to be the pervert party candidate to mainstream USA while still supporting his GLBT constituents. It was so obviously insincere, I wondered why he bothered.
Miller said he bet that Cheney couldn't wait to get hold of Edwars. Said his heart was probably skippin' faster than Richard Simmons going to meet Justin Timberlake!
Fineman is pointing out that Edwards kept breaking the rules and had a problem answering the questions that were asked him
Joey better put some ice on that, and perhaps he could pick up a crying towel on the way out the door.
Good grief, I was willing to admit that Bush got beat on Thursday.
But, this is just awful. Cheney was asking Edwards where he wants him to squirt it. On his back or on a towel.
I was ticked off during that part, because one of the things he mentioned as evidence that our light is "flickering" is the fact that we have empty seats at the dinner table because troops are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Yeah, people are giving up their lives to preserve our freedom and liberate humankind, what a horrible threat to the American way of life. Freakin' lightweight.
It used to be difficult to get a *good* lawyer to go after another lawyer. Now the field is so overpopulated, they are even willing to cannibalize their own, if the money is right.
What I like about George Bush...he gets up every morning, two feet hit the floor, scratches his balls, and says "Let's kill some f***in terrorists!".
Yup he is good tonight! L0L
I hope your words are right, Sparky. I went to vote on a few polls, and the numbers were already at 75% for Kerry....this was 5 minutes after the debate was finished.
5 MINUTES!....and the polls were already that bad? When Cheney cleared kicked pretty boy's butt back to NC?
DANG! I was thinking people were referring to ZELL Miller and I was clicking around the news channels and missed Leno!
I remembered what I wanted to comment on when I was LOCKED OUT OF FR again tonight!
When Edwards was closing and said "Can you ever remember a time when this country was so divided?", I was SCREAMING at the TV, "YES!!! And it was John Kerry then, too!!!!" This is EXACTLY like it was in 1971!!!!
"I don't know what it is exactly, maybe the half smile, maybe the wise and warm expression, but Vice President Cheney is totally HOT. Totally, intensely HOT."
Remember, back in the early days when Bush/Cheney were first running for office, many of us were the Cheney chicks? Well, I'm so proud to have been one from the inception. I love Dick Cheney; he is my hero. He was a bug zapper tonite, and Edwards was the mosquito. Splat...
On-line polls mean nothing...just checked one of the "troll blogs" and every other post is about voting on-line and not much about the actual debate.
The Breck Girl got spanked!
Before. They film at 4 pm PST. It would have been over before the debate started.
"As a defense contractor for 20 years, I know that the only reason you get a sole source contract is if the gov't has justified that you appear to be a sole source.
Yes, "Fair and Balanced" attacks!
