And bush managed not to mangle it too badly. They should both be happy.

Yep, enjoyed it. Kerry was foundering.

When Bush cited Kerry's abysmal record in the senate Kerry managed to come back with a reply out of left field that he had actually had 56 bills passed. Many of which his name wasn't on and that he didn't cosponsor but he wrote them all.

Wonder if anyone actually bought that any more than his voting for 87 million before voting against it when the bill was only voted on once.

When one's liberal and has a voting record....

....it make's it hard to run for president. Of course every lawyer knows the old adage, "If you can't convince`em, then confuse`em." The sad thing is that when trying it, Kerry often confuses himself too, LOL.

NOT wishing to defend Mr Kerry
by holtnr / October 14, 2004 7:30 AM PDT

But... I do seem to recall a quote from Foggy Bottom that goes something like this:
"It's amazing what one man can accomplish when he is willing to let someone else take the credit."

Which begs the question, Do you consider Mr Kerry a man with that much character?

Hi, James.

Same revisionist history as Cheney, who (incorrectly) says he never suggested a firm link between iraq and 9/11 (he still does to this day) -- now Bush says he never claimed not to be worried about Osama. NBC was showing the tape 10 minutes after the debate.

I'd have to see them both in context.
by James Denison / October 13, 2004 1:25 PM PDT

But nobody was really worried about Osama bin Ladin, anymore than many other big mouths threatening the USA over in the middle east area. Those types were a dime a dozen, so the timeline would be important too.

Didn't Bill Clinton bomb an aspirin factory in Afghanistan trying to get Osama?

Bush was speaking in the present tense, post 9/11, in response to a reporter's question about the search for bin Laden. The "official spin" at that time was that we weren't that concerned about him (as opposed to "we can't find him").

I think he better fire his prompter(s) then

if this is true...and if it is I dont see what is terribly wrong about it anyway...

Of course as I have repeated before...you can find anything,almost, you want on the internet if you are adept at finding things as is the person who sent me this link via email!

small mix up
by holtnr / October 14, 2004 3:09 AM PDT

Clinton destroyed an "aspirin factory" in the Sudan. He also destroyed a few "tents" in Afghanistan. The "aspirin factory" apparantly was Osama's either wholly or inpart. I quotated aspirin factory because pharmacuticals use precursors that can also be used to manufacture Chemical Warfare weapons. Just as a reminder, the first nerve gas was discovered in Germany by researchers try to improve fertilizer! Dual use is not Mythology, it is a sad reality.

How about that statement from Kerry,

"Once again, the president is misleading America. I've actually passed 56 individual bills that I've personally written..."

An unquestionably bald faced lie. Search http://thomas.loc.gov/ for yourself. 5 bills that he's authored have been passed into law and about 7 Senate resolutions. FWIW, I have searched as far back as it goes and the results are here in the forum.

I've seen the clip you speak of and in context it looked to me like Bush was speaking in jest. It's just not the big story lie the Democrats want it to be.
