Bush needs to think of these debates as if they were a kind of dogfight, like the ones he flew in the Texas Air National Guard. Kerry is a relatively good pilot/debator, and he has a whole series of lethal heat-seeking missiles under his wings. He is out to DESTROY Bush politically, so Bush has to fly smart, avoid the incoming, and maneuver his way behind Kerry so he can take him out.

Bush needs to pound pound pound hard from the very first question and never let up. This one should be red meat for the base, forget about the ditzy undecideds.

Let's keep a count of how many times W uses the "L" word. I predict 7 times during the evening, at least 1 in the very first question he fields.

He has to reconnect to the people the way he did that day.

Two hour pre-game?

Sounds about right.

Hoping that W will let some righteous indignation (a la Zell) pour forth on the poseur. He owes it to the victims of 9/11, to our military and our allies who have paid the price in Iraq; and to all the people in the world looking to America to stop the evil that threatens to engulf us all.

He will do this.

WARNING: READ THIS IN IT'S ENTIRETY BEFORE JUMPING ON THE REPLY KEY.

President Bush needs to speak to the American people as if he HAS lost. Because only then can he freely speak with the heartfelt convictions he has without any hesitation. Like saying to everyone one of us that he cares for: watch out for this and for that, under this man. I may have put it wrongly. How is it said, "Once you've accepted your death, you can truly begin to live." I am paraphrasing it, but I think (hope it makes sense).

I am praying too - I know that God asked us to come to Him in prayer. I'm praying that God will lead President Bush tonight, and that he will be able to speak clearly and concisely. I am praying more, though, the President Bush will win the election. This debate is part of that, but it is not all...

Yep. He had an Op-ed in the SD Union Tribune the other day about how the majority of the mud-slinging in this campaign is coming from HIS side, not the President's. (ours.) I was kind of... amazed. I guess he's one of those "conservative liberals" that come around as much as the chupacabra.

I agree that W won the first. The numbers of lies told by sKerry should be counted against him... but I realize the MSM won't do that. How can you have the best style if it consists of that many lies?

He needs to act as if there is nothing to lose. Hang Kerry with Kerry's record. Repeat his words back to him. Forget answering the debate questions - go after Kerry's own words and beat him with them.

Man am I nervous!

Don't know about you guys but my nerves are shot. I won't be watching the debate live but I will be supporting Bush in spirit. I hope he takes it to Kerry and 'undresses' him in front of the public.

I'll check FR before deciding if I want to watch the replay.

Uh, is "L word" liar?

That is Kerry, not W.

W is too, way too much of a gentleman to have descended into F'n gutter.

May need to do so tonight, methinks.

Yes! And his spineless flip-flopping on the war in Iraq...for EVERY declaration Kerry spouts about Iraq, have a previous quote of his contradicting it. That should be easy.

I really want to see Kerry get pounded tonight.

He and Edwards are becoming more arrogant and intolerable lately. They need to be put in their place.
Tonight, but most of all on election day!

President Bush and Senator John F. Kerry met tonight in a "town hall" type debate. The concensus, agreed to quickly after the debate, was that President Bush did nothing to help his cause. In fact, he may have damaged it because of an obvious failure to connect with the intelligent questioners, who, although "undecided", displayed a canny and thorough understanding of the issues.

Senator Kerry on the otherhand, surprised everyone and put on a display not seen since that of former President Bill Clinton in a similar setting in Richmond in 1992. Kerry was quick but sincere, and, for the first time, he displayed a very active sense of humor. A warm feeling for him quickly overcame the audience, especially when he informed the audience, in an almost shy revelation for the first time, that he had served in Vietnam and had numerous medals.

He also mentioned, in response to each and every question, that he had a plan.

Some media personalities wondered if there was really any reason to hold a third presidential debate.
