DEBATE MYSTERY: DID KERRY HAVE CHEAT SHEET?
Section 5, pages 4-5 of the binding "Memorandum of Understanding" that was negotiated and agreed upon by both political campaigns states:
"No props, notes, charts, diagrams, or other writings or other tangible things may be brought into the debate by either candidate.... Each candidate must submit to the staff of the Commission prior to the debate all such paper and any pens or pencils with which a candidate may wish to take notes during the debate, and the staff or commission will place such paper, pens and pencils on the podium..."
So what did Dem presidential contender John Kerry take out of his jacket as he approached the stage [with his back to the auditorium's audience]?
What did Kerry place on the podium?
Video replays of the Kerry maneuver played all weekend long on the internet.
[A tight zoom of the Boston.Com feed shows Kerry pulling a mysterious "card" from his jacket. 14 seconds into video, after commerical]
A top Kerry campaign source explained to the DRUDGE REPORT late Sunday how Bush supporters were once again trying to distract.
"Kerry did not cheat," said the Kerry insider. "This is more lies from Republicans, who are hoping for a quick change of subject away from the president's performance, and the new polls."
LOL True or not, this WON'T look good on a resume ;)
Wonder if it was that 180 form......?
What a non issue....
I tivo'd the debate and I clearly see him reach into his pocket. So what?
I guess that it was against the rules to bring notes? Is that the case? If so, he cheated...otherwise, so what.
He wasn't by any chance happy to see some one at the time was he? ; )
probably some notes or somthing. dunno. more than likely rules violations..
but hey, sKerry couldnt be a dim without breaking the rules. With many of the dim politicians its damn the rules, we will get our power back.
Cheating in a poltical debate where it gives you a clear advantage is not an issue? Ahh...ok sparky.
Your right. It's a Democrat, they are expected to cheat.
Do you see him pick something up from the podium AFTER the debate?
Using notes for the debate is not allowed, as in a violation of the rules.
If Kerry used notes it would indicate why he had such good replys.
Hows the Kool-aid?
Kerry pulled Jim's list of questions out of his pocket!
First I heard of this ...what was it? The answers to the test?
Kerry was pulling out the Global Test... He was gonna show it to everybody....
I think this would finish Kerry, if true.
