Puleeeeese<br><br>I love how the White House and their surrogates argue their points. When John Kerry explains something, they pretend like they didn't understand and throw some weird interpretation on it, never actually arguing based on what Kerry said.<br><br>So if we're talking about what the candidates haven't said...<br><br>-- Charlie Alpha Roger Yankee Whiskey<br>
I think plenty of people saw that debate and one effect will be to deflate the Bush spin machine. Bush can get cheers on the stump from his hand-picked crowds (the ones that still laugh out loud on cue when Bush calls Kerry a 'flip-flopper' ) by distorting Kerry's words, but it just rings hollow. Bush says that "in the debate last night my opponent said he will ask for France's permission to protect ourselves!" and his crowd cheers... what a bunch of idiots.<br><br>
Kerry (from the debate): "No president, though all of American history, has ever ceded, and nor would I, the right to preempt in any way necessary to protect the United States of America.<br><br>But if and when you do it, Jim, you have to do it in a way that passes the test, that passes the global test where your countrymen, your people understand fully why you're doing what you're doing and you can prove to the world that you did it for legitimate reasons."<br><br><br>The President the next day:<br><br><br>THE PRESIDENT: One other point I want to make about the debate last night. Senator Kerry last night said that America has to pass some sort of global test --<br><br>AUDIENCE: Booo!<br><br>THE PRESIDENT: -- before we can use American troops to defend ourselves. He wants our national security decisions subject to the approval of a foreign government.<br><br>AUDIENCE: Booo!<br><br>THE PRESIDENT: Listen, I'll continue to work with our allies and the international community -- but I will never submit America's national security to an international test. (Applause.) The use of troops to defend America must never be subject to a veto by countries like France.<br>(Applause.) The President's job is not to take an international poll -- the President's job is to defend America. (Applause.)<br><br>
