The Unofficial Pre Pre-Debate Thread

Posted on 10/13/2004 4:10:17 PM PDT by rocklobster11

Here it is. I'm watching Hardball at the moment. Nicolle Devenish is doing a good job speaking for Bush, as always

Mystery Surrounds Kerry's Navy Discharge


http://www.nysun.com/article/3107

A Kerry campaign spokesman, David Wade, was asked whether Mr. Kerry
had ever been a victim of an attempt to deny him an honorable discharge.
There has been no response to that inquiry.

I think Bush will do fine, because the expectations are reversed from the first debate. They say this is Kerry's home turf, but only if your home turf is liberal, tax and spend indecisiveness.

Of course, no matter how Bush does, it will be portrayed as a Kerry win or a tie, and the number of people watching will probably be small.

Kerry has not answered a single question on his Vietnam service or his anti-war protest days, so I don't expect him to start now. This will go nowhere with the MSM unless someone leaks Kerry's Navy records.

My thoughts exactly - two playoff games in progress tonight, coupled with depate fatuge, will make for a low viewer group - unfortunateky that leaves an opening for the MSM to spin it more towards skerry.

Well, the Socialist Democrats already sent memos to the media stations telling them who won - bet you can guess who -


I think Baseball will take up that hour and a half very nicely -

I already know who I am voting for and don't need the controlled media telling me anything -

just my opinion -

Don't respond to any online polls tonite. No way to beat the automated bots run by the DUmmies, so let the results be really skewed.

It'll become so slow that it's not worth it. Good luck anyway. If Kerry does manage to win, I'm moving to your fantastic state. There's no way I'll stay around NY and DC. What's the weather like down there tonight?

Worst economy since Hoover - one drink

Tax cuts for the richest Americans - one drink

Halliburton - one drink

Oil buddies - one drink

No tax cuts for middle class - one drink

I have a plan (Kerry saying it) - drink the whole bloody bottle...

I can't watch as my cable TV is out, but I don't watch the whole debate anyway. For some reason, my remote clicks off when Kerry comes on! 'Sides, it's much more fun to be on the live threads.

I'll be down to my local pub watching the playoff games. If I get back early enough, I'll log on and read the threads.

We've decided to just have a couple of drinks, turn off the tv, and declare Kerry the winner in advance of its starting. This way we can be just like the media and in "tune" with the rest of America.

Seabrook TX, Best weather in months - highs in the low 80's - very sunny - light coastal breeze - very low humidity

If this were to keep up year round we would have another 5 million new citizens.

I don't like polls - I see them as a tool - but as long as they are being used - my thoughts would be:

I think that is what the Socialist Democrats want people to do - it makes them look better than they are -

I'd say, once the debate gets going - and you like what you see and hear - Vote - Your opinion should count as much as anybody else's opinion -

just my thought - I noticed the one poll at Fox - right after the debate - it was very heavy in for Kerry - but as the night went on - it became close - to me that showed a different view than if no one had bottered to go there and give their opinion -
