Cheney put Kerry's record on national defense on the table. It may be that the President is going to hit on it again in his speech tomorrow.
Just like Skerry he broke the rules of the debate. Typical Demonrat behavior, rules and laws are for everyone else not us.
Edwards & Kerry had their clocks cleaned by the Vice President.
It wasn't even close, I was literally rolling after Edwards & kerry were challenged on so many things...
"you weren't even there to vote"
"This is the first time I've met you"
Too many quotes to list, but I'm sure someone will tallly them all for us.
Best one is the one in my tag line, when Cheney compared I'm an Internationalist and the invoking of UN permission to use troops that kerry whined about in 1970 to the Global Test Remark last Thursday.
I can't wait until Friday.
Great job Mr. Vice President.
In every way, Cheney clearly kicked the living shit out of Edwards. He bitch slapped him. He treated him like a dog.
He outplayed him in every way.
For example, I thought Cheney was going to furiously upbraid Edwards for bringing his lesbian daughter into the debate (I would have been a sucker. I would have blasted him). But Cheney beautifully disarmed him by merely thanking him for his complimentary comments.
Thats just one example. Cheney, in every way, controlled the tone and the direction. Edwards looked like a really smart, conniving, but guilty kid in the principals office.
I'd like to know how many times Edwards said "We have a plan..."
Yeah,... technically, without all the lies,....yeah he slapped him around. I'm amazed they can twist and absolutely "LIE" so well. It disturbs me. I don't think this country needs a creative LIAR for President!!!!
Comments from this evening:
Even the best lawyer can't defend the kerry record
Edwards was nervous... forgot whose turn it was ... cheney's name .... what subject
IOTW, Edwards BOMBED against the Vice President!
"Cheney looked arrogant, looked tired, stumbled, looked upset...Both Bush and Cheney looked liked angry men...I was aghast and shocked!"
McAuliffe sounded like a man crying to keep his job. LoL!
This guy, Edwards, sounded jerked over. And talk about bad style. What a flunky.
Big victory for Bush-Cheney tonight.
Was Edwards at the debate? There was this little kid with a beanie on in his seat, but I never saw the "distinguished" senator tonight.
I fear what the polls might look like tomorrow. I fear for the worst. When are we (the republicans) going to go on offense and really take it to them. Seems like too much of being nice to those not worthy.
Cheney missed a great setup to cut Edwards to pieces with the question regarding Edwards' role in raising medical costs by his professional antics...
Did anyone else hear Edwards mention Vietnam? I counted one oblique reference, then two subsequent direct mentions. It started 25 mins. into the debate. Cheney absolutely rocked on nat'l. defense. Thought the questions were fair and tough on Edwards, much better than last week. Overall, Cheney won hands down.
Edwards said when he was young, he'd come into the kitchen and his father would be learning math by watching tv (PBS?). I didn't realize PBS had courses on tv that long ago. Am I wrong here? Has PBS been around that long really?
My thought, maybe 3 minutes into the shoe, was, who is this overrated flyweight? (I hadn't seen the Breck Girl before.) And, what kind of dumb courtroom jurors ever let her win all those cases? She couldn't persuade me to cross a street at green light!
I wish the ticket was Cheney-Bush. Great job, Mr. Vice President!
Cheney cleaned Edwards lunch box.
Thanks for getting me out of the wasteland. I was trapped somewhere between post 2500 and 3500, I thought I would never get out.
