The American Spectator

THE DEBATE: "But here's a quick test of last night's electoral effect: what do you remember a day later, off the top of your head?

Chances are, it's that Kerry called Iraq 'the wrong war at the wrong place at the wrong time.' Or that it is bad to send 'mixed messages' (or 'mixed signals'). Bush said each of these things seven times (Kerry, attempting to parry Bush's thrusts, said 'mixed messages' another three times). Kerry spoke competently on each point of debate, but swing voters aren't going to walk around with his talking points in mind -- he only brought up rushing to war three times, for example." -- John Tabin, The American Spectator.

Good debate. Watched it all. While I was impressed with Kerry's demeanor, President Bush won. WHY?

I am not only uncomfortable, I am scared to death, when a man who could be President says that he would not defend the United States without approval from foreign nations. In addition, Kerry pointed out that our allies have only provided a small percentage of troops to our effort in Iraq. Okay..... How many more would there be if the secret (France, Germany, and Russia) missing allies were involved? Also, how effective would they be?

It was reported that Mr. Kerry said several weeks ago that we needed a more "sensitive" approach to war. I don't know what the exact quote was, so I can't give it. I've also read that he would "nuance" our foreign relations. What a crock. I have news for those in this nation who think we can sing Kumbaya with the terrorists..... by the time you are ready to sing the second chorus, al Zarqawi will have cut your head off.
