President Bush won a decisive victory last night. The President dominated the debate with impassioned, thoughtful and concise arguments that left Kerry looking petty and defensive as he sputtered out tired, false political rhetoric and distortions that shattered his credibility and contradicted the Senator's 20-year record of being on the wrong side of history on national security and domestic policy.
The Bush-Cheney inbox was flooded with e-mails from all over the nation reflecting the President's decisive win. A few of the comments:
You were awesome. You were on target, forceful without being mean, you have Kerry on the run, he's not sure of himself, you have the facts and they're on your side. - Tom Johnson - Orient, OH
You will win because you are right. - Kerry Preston - Littleton, CO
You did a terrific job! Some of us are republicans and some are democrats and we all agree that John Kerry is definitely not Presidential material. You have our vote. - Carrie Miller & Friends - Lumberton, NC
We're standing behind you for victory! - Cindy Lippincott - Tampa, FL
You looked great tonight. You spoke well. You defended your positions effectively, yet respectfully. You are my winner tonight. - Edwin Cruz M.D. - Virginia Beach, VA
The President, however, said it best:
"He's got a record. He's been there for 20 years. You can run but you can't hide" - President Bush
John Kerry has a 20-year record of weakening national security and President Bush was on the offensive last night against John Kerry's naive and dangerous ideas.
Kerry suggested limiting the War on Terror to a hunt for Osama Bin Laden. This represents a fundamental misunderstanding of the War on Terror.
Kerry tonight said that Saddam Hussein was a threat, but said we should not have dealt with that threat.
Kerry suggested that Saddam Hussein could be contained with sanctions, in contrast to his own previous assertion that a "policy of containment" would be "disastrous."
Kerry proposed a return to failed policies of unilateral negotiations with North Korea that proved a failure during the Clinton administration.
Kerry refused to retract his proposal for a "global test."
Kerry again denigrated our allies by saying we are going it alone.
John Kerry has a 20-year record of supporting bigger government, higher taxes and higher health care costs.
President Bush exposed John Kerry's hypocrisy on health care by addressing John Kerry's $1.5 trillion health care that would take away choices without reducing the cost of health care.
John Kerry blocked medical liability renorm ten times.
President Bush exposed John Kerry's record of proposing $2.2 trillion in new government spending.
President Bush was in command of the issues, the facts, and the stage, and clearly won on style and substance last night. He exposed and dismantled Kerry's record of voting against intelligence funding, against our troops, against medical liability renorm and against tax relief for working families.
