Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

First Quarter

Bush explains that he knows how to lead. Be strong, never waiver, stay on the offensive, spread liberty. Hard work but we must do it. We are fighting an ideology of hatred. Kerry says Bush made a "collosal error of judgment." Military guys support me, he lists a few few of standard Demo names. What misjudgments? "Where do you want me to begin." Vicki says, "sarcastic s.o.b." She’s right. That didn’t serve him well.
Then sounds like a standard stump speech. Cost of war, opium, etc. Misspeaks a couple of times. Not especially effective.
Bush responds. An attempt at wit, gentle, it worked. Saddam explanation, connect to U.N. Kerry has a "Pre-September 10th mentality." We can go after both Saddam and UBL. This is a global war. Kerry doesn’t understand the nature of the war.
A bit of list of the progress in the war. The front is not just in one place. The worse thing that could happen is that we don’t succeed in Iraq. Praises PM Allawi.
Kerry. Iraq not at the center of the war on terror. Bush rushed to war without a plan to make the piece. Soldiers don’t have body armor. That’s wrong. Humvees are not armored. The president doesn’t see.
Bush quotes Kerry, "wrong war, wrong time wrong place." Wrong stay resolved. Kerry. So am I, and I know we can’t leave, but this president can’t do it. We need allies.

Bush just looked bad. I’m still voting for him, but Kerry got in some better "soundbites". I wish the debates weren’t so controlled.
