Great debate. Bush won, but Kerry showed sufficient spine that I won't panic if he is elected.
Sure wish either he or Bush had taken the opportunity to send a nice clear message to Iran, such as, "I will take military action to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons if necessary." I'm sure Bush would, but I'm pretty sure if we elect Kerry, Israel is the only thing preventing a nuclear mullacracy. Yuck. And as far as bilateral talks with North Korea, that's a loser. North Korea always wants bilateral talks with the US. That's a clue. The clue is they think it works to their advantage. They don't need any advantages.
Kerry is still dissing our allies. That is awfully ignorant and short sighted.
It's also clear that Kerry wants to destroy jobs. He'll raise taxes on the small companies who create them. (Here's an idea, John. How about a new tax bracket for people who earn over 50 million dollars in one year? That should leave small business alone. Your Mrs. and Soros can pay.) He'll increase regulations. He won't reform your legal liability system (except for medical liability). He'll drop Kyoto on us like a ton of bricks. Sounds like double digit unemployment to me. Thank God for the Republicans in the House and Senate.
