    Kerry had a great chance with "How did Bush mislead the people about the War ?", but he blew it by not going into any details, or dropping any serious explosives. Instead he went over the same old drill again.

    So far, most of Bush's responses have not been very impressive. I don't know - it's just how he talks I suppose. Kerry, on the other hand, has been very presentable throughout the debate, so far.

    Bush: Pure comedy I'd say. I knew I could count on him.

    My favorite so far is that he will defeat terror because "he thinks about it every day". :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    I've heard some many "uh's" and "er's" from Bush, it's hilliarious. Kerry has been very quick and responsive.

    from the website:
    those are some seriously objective reasons right there

    This debate doesn't seem like a debate to me. They aren't asking eachother questions. No point-counterpoint style debating.

    Lots of valence statement (a suprising amount of them from both Kerry and Bush). I already heard Kerry and Bush agree with eachother several times.

    Lets see where this ends up...

    When it is said that Bush stays on message, apparently this means that he has five answers used for everything.

    He got his ass kicked in 2000. this election and debates are is his to lose. He just has to hang in there to still win.
    Kerry has a lot of proving of himself to do.
    Will be interesting to see how this is all perceived. A bad showing on the first debate will be a winner for Bush in the next 2.

    Remember that you are 'misunderestimating' him.

    Oh, and Bush keeps telling us what hard work the presidency is. Maybe if he thinks it's such hard work, he should try some other profession. He keeps repeating the same crap over and over, even if it isn't relevant to the question.

    I think Kerry is doing a pretty good job. He could have done a little better on a few questions, but he's getting his point across, speaking clearly, and not coming across cocky the way Bush is.

    These debates aren't meant to be them asking each other questions, it's the job of the moderator to ask the questions and them each to take turns answering them or responding to the others comments (think of it more like lawyers in court each presenting their case and arguments, not asking each other questions).

    I just wish Kerry would stop flicking his tongue in and out of his mouth. It's kinda icky.
