John, The Nice Man Asking the Questions Is Already Going to Vote for You

So, why didn't you spend some time looking into the camera talking to the millions of potential voters in their living rooms?

Not that that was the stupidest thing you did last night. George W. Bush did a good job at pointing out numerous contradictory positions you staked out. That the war in Iraq was a mistake and not a mistake; "Heavens, no, our troops aren't dying for a mistake", say.

Or these devastating lines:

Mr. Bush: All right. My opponent says help is on the way, but what kind of message does that say to our troops in harm's way? Wrong war, wrong place, wrong time. That's not a message a commander in chief gives. Or this is a great diversion.

As well, help is on the way, but it's certainly hard to tell it when he voted against the $87 billion supplemental to provide equipment for our troops. And then said he actually did vote for it before he voted against it. It's not what a commander in chief does when you're trying to lead troops.

One Bush missed was:

Kerry: First of all, we all know that in his State of the Union message he told Congress about nuclear materials that didn't exist.

Which was sandwiched between two slices claiming they did:

The only building that was guarded when the troops went into Baghdad was the oil ministry. We didn't guard the nuclear facilities.


When you guard the oil ministry but you don't guard the nuclear facilities the message to a lot of people is maybe well, maybe they're interested in our oil.

The message is that John Kerry doesn't bother to think about what he's saying.
