But my first thought after the debate was, “Are you sure it’s not too late for me to vote for Lieberman?”
When I write in McCain, it’s two C’s, right?
Was it me or was every question, Mr pres, Why do you beat your wife?”
Kerry won the battle tonight, but maybe Bush won the war. At least we know what we are getting…
Yeah. Quite a few questions were along the lines of “Senator Kerry how would you fix this unholy f-ing mess the President has made?”.
Color me unimpressed by the moderator.
Kerry is convinced that He and He alone can save the world. Bush is convinced that the spread of Liberty and Freedom is the way to a more peaceful world.
Kerry started nearly every sentence with the word “I”. Bush said “We” repeatedly. Where Kerry could only find fault, Bush repeatedly found a reason to hope.
Kerry finds security in the promises of other countries leaders, Bush finds security only in the actions of Americans.
Kerry is a lawyer. Bush is a Texan.
Lawrence Simon — I wrote in a candidate (okay it was my dad) in 2000. I considered doing the same this year, but I’m going to vote for GWB. First time ever voting for a Repub. for president.
I think it’s best if possible to make a decision between the two major party candidates. It is important that this time, there is a mandate, which requires that the Electoral victor also win the popular vote. We can’t go through that “he didn’t really win” crap again. It was terrible for the country, and would be even worse if it happened again.
Quick Peek at the Blogosphere (in progress)
Looking around, seeing what other Pajamahadeen are saying.
I find I agree with both Stephen and denise…with a nod to Laurence.
Laurence — Sorry I misspelled your name. I spelled it like my home town.
It was not only “why do you beat your wife?”, but also “I’ve heard that you kick your dog, lie to your neighbors, and steal food from the supermarket.” I have always had a lot of respect for Jim Lehrer, but I did find most of his questions had a liberal slant.
PS – Lieberman would have been a much stonger, tougher candidate for the Democrats than Kerry. But he was toast given the Kennedy-Moore-Carter wing that now seems in control of the DNC.
even i would have thought about voting for Lieberman.
Kerry said “I” because unlike Bush he is willing to take responsibility for being President. I don’t elect a “we”, I elect one person to take on that responsibility and Bush has failed in my opinion. We may know what we’re getting with Bush, and well frankly that is my problem with it. I don’t like what we’ve gotten and certainly don’t want four more years of it.
I actually voted for Leiberman in the Mass. primaries even though he had dropped out the week before. I figured Kerry had the state no matter how I voted so I might as well vote for who I wanted instead of picking the best of the rest. I realize it is an invisible blip, but was my only way at that point to voice my support.
