Roundhouse punches, back and forth
BUSH: "You better have a president that can chase down these terrorist." Straight at the camera, raising his voice. Playing the fear card, ignoring the issue. Ugh. Thanking the troops, prattling on about "a free Iraq being essential to America's safety."
This is more vicious than any boxing match.
"These troops said, we need you over there. Our troops only guarded the oil ministry. We will get the job done right"
BUSH: "Wrong war, wrong place, wrong time. That's not what a commander in chief says to his troops." Again, "voting for before voting against." Kryptonite,
Kerry's fumbling, invoking Vietnam, explaining his position on the war. "He said 'We will plan, we will proceed cautiously. They ignored advice. Like Franklin Roosevelt invading Mexico." Another good line. Bush looking confused, then irritated and slightly amused as Kerry rambles.
Bush's response: "That's absurd. My opponent says we don't have an allies in this war, what do you call Tony Blair? I deal with these people all the time. They're not going to follow anyone who says this is a wrong war, in the wrong place at the wrong time."
BUSH: "Actually, he forgot Poland. I don't appreciate when a canidate degenerates (?) our allies."
