    The debate was on foreign policy. Bush's only foreign policies are attacking terrorists and invading Iraq. What else should it have been on?

    > btw: thats not what you asked in the first place

    Yes it was.

    > no wait how bout you pick one...

    Burden of proof is on you. You made the claim.

    > actually how bout the last one on "personal opinions" of each other...

    Asking the personal opinions of each other is slated towards Kerry? How so?

    > uh, did you watch the debate, the questions gave Kerry FAR more flexibility in response...

    It's not his fault Bush has painted himself into a corner.

    I didn't mean to say that it was wrong, just that the fact that since this debate was on foreign policy it would obviously be in Kerry's favor. Gotta wait for the more domestic debates to see if my gut feeling over the two candidates debating skills continue.

    maybe in your head... thats not what the words said to me. my apologies for not being fluent in Govtcheez.

    >Burden of proof is on you. You made the claim.

    i made an example, the last one on their opinions of each other, besides there is no burden of proof anyways, i made a self-proving statement of opinion, expecting your watching of the debate to see it through, there is no need for sighting particulars, being all that i saw were in question, and that your seeing the debate and the questions solves that problem... thanks for trying to make this something more serious than it need to be.

    >Asking the personal opinions of each other is slated towards Kerry? How so?

    first that was a response to the charge of the questions being retarded... second does any one question sum up the debate?

    >It's not his fault Bush has painted himself into a corner.

    now thats just asinine


    people get way to fired up over politics...

    Or, you could just mention the part where Kerry steamrolled Lehrer so he could get a quick 30 second rebuttal in.

    > second does any one question sum up the debate?

    Third that doesn't answer the question at all. If the debate was so obviously slanted towards Kerry, surely you could pick out one question that was unfair.

    You saying this is pretty funny, Admiral Allcaps.

    then i could just let you do it... and answer a different question?!?!?
    i think the topic on this one was, the questions being retarded, not the both of them steamrolling Lehrer for time to rebut.

    <

    your confusing up all the questions?!??? anyway... your being... pardon, i dont mean it as an insult or anything... but your being obtuse.

    >You saying this is pretty funny, Admiral Allcaps.

    Aye Cap'n!!


    Edit: furthermore the need for examples is unnecessary, being that it would "muddle" my point and they should be self exemplary. in any of these cases it is in my opinion unnecessary and assinine! to even ask for them... especially being they were broad statements not requireing "single" examples, the entirety as a WHOLE is in question... seriously... what the hell.

    Did any one watch the after debate analysis (on fox i believe) where there were two guys (pro bush, pro kerry). And the pro bush asked the pro kerry about kerrys "flip floppy" stance on the war.

    And they got into a funny as heck immature squable that was this cliche:
    "Will you just let me answer?" -pro kerry
    "ok, answer" -pro bush
    "ok, I will, will you let me" - k
    "ok, go " - b
    "I will, just let me answer" -k
    "ok, answer" - b
    "are you gonna let me finish?" -k

    I swear to god that is the exact transcript of the question....

    Click for the transcript of the debate.

    My favorite exchange....

    Kerry:...there were three countries: Great Britain, Australia and the United States. That's not a grand coalition. We can do better.

    LEHRER: Thirty seconds, Mr. President.

    BUSH: Well, actually, he forgot Poland.


    And should a president really refer to the president of Russia as "Vladamuhr"?

    To clarify this exchange,
    in the very previous question to this one, bush was asked something along the lines of we had gone into the war alone. And bush said we werent alone, we had britin and... poland. Giving two sides of the extreme (lets face it, poland isn't know for its military power...) but he mentioned them to say were didnt go in alone unsupported.

    Then in this following question kerry said we only went in with 3 supporters, and bush was all like
    "Well actually you forgot poland". Which was very funny cause it made kerry look like an ass as bush had JUST said it.

    Like CNN doesn't have BS addons.

    Typical CNN format: Let's talk to <so_and_so_expert) who doesn't know one damn thing more about what we are talking about than you people at home do.
    Half the time when the 'experts' get done talking I'm like....did they say anything we didn't already know.

    I remember when they covered some plane crash in Florida. The expert was so intelligent that when asked what he thought happened.....he said something went terribly wrong. No kidding? And I thought the pilot just nosed her into the everglades for the heck of it. Very enlightening.

    My favorite line.

    Bush: First of all, of course I know Osama bin Laden attacked us. I know that.
    (But you really have to see the face he made at Kerry to get the full entertainment value.)

    Bush looked like a fish out of water, kerry was calm. I;m registering to vote and going Kerry. There would have to be amazing outlash of events in future debates to change my mind.

    In Australia voting is compulsory you get fined if you don't (even if you ar out of the country).

    The major reason you are disqualified from voting is if you are still serving time for committing a crime.

    As the two Australians in US custody in Camp X-Ray have not been convicted in the three years they have been held they get to VOTE!

    Wonder if they know who is running?
