    Hillary Clinton once called TPP the 'gold standard.' Here's why, and what she says about the trade deal now. to the bottom: “I still believe in the goal of a strong and fair trade agreement in the Pacific as part of a broader strategy both at home and abroad, just as I did when I was secretary of State,” she said in a statement.

    Last night's debate transcript - ^ | 04 OCTOBER 2012 | TXnMA / Debaters
    In his wrap-up, Øbama said, "But I also promised that I'd fight every single day on behalf of the American people, the middle class, and all those who were striving to get into the middle class. I've kept that promise and if you'll vote for me, then I promise I'll fight just as hard in a second term." At that point, Romney should have silently stepped out from behind his podium and -- executed a clumsy golf swing... Read more:

  • BREAKING NEWS: FOX News: "99% Sure It's a Black Pen"

    A FOX News representative has reviewed several versions of the debate tape and is almost positive that the object in question is a black pen. "What he takes out of his pocket ... I'm almost 99% sure that it's a pen. It's a black, oblong object," a FOX News producer told INDC Journal. Let's leave it at that. The debate rules were violated in letter, but not intent, and any charges of cheating against the Kerry campaign are undeserved and inaccurate. If the tape had clearly shown that John Kerry had removed a pen from his pocket, I would not...

    Congressional Record
    Kerry sounded authoritative in the first debate, but what is he an athority on? How many bills on the war on terrorism did John Kerry author? How many did he sponsor or co-sponsor. How many homeland security bills or amendments did he author, how many did he sponsor or co-sponsor? How many speeches did he give on the senate floor regarding foreign policy? What significant impact did he have on any foreign policy issues? Well, I guess he was just saving up all his great ideas for when he ran for president, because I believe the answer to all these...

    John Kerry made some strong and sensible statements during the debate last night, but did you notice what the next word usually was? Here are some Kerry quotes: "I'll never give a veto to any country over our security. But . . ." "I believe in being strong and resolute and determined. And I will hunt down and kill the terrorists, wherever they are. But . . ." "We have to be steadfast and resolved, and I am. And I will succeed for those troops, now that we're there. We have to succeed. We can't leave a failed Iraq. But...

    George Bush and John Kerry locked horns on live television today in the first face-to-face debate of the presidential election campaign. The President and his Democratic challenger set out their different strategies on how to prevail in Iraq and win the war on terrorism. But neither managed to deliver a knock-out punch during the 90-minute war of words at Miami University in Florida. Senator Kerry accused his rival of a "colossal error in judgement" by invading Iraq, and offered a "fresh start" for America. But Mr Bush hit back, saying he had proved himself as a leader and that the...
  • Differences in policy, personality emerge in presidential debate

    Newsday ^ | October 1, 2004
    The differences couldn't have been more stark. Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, the Democratic nominee, criticized President George W. Bush's handling of the war in Iraq again and again. He defended his own position as consistent and hammered away at the deterioration of the security situation in Iraq. Bush, a Republican running for a second term, said time and again that the war in Iraq was the correct policy for the United States to follow and that Kerry was undercutting the effort by saying it was the wrong war, at the wrong time in the wrong place. And, at every...
  • Dick Morris: Bush Set Debate Trap for Kerry

    President Bush has set a debate trap for John Kerry that will force him to take positions opposed by a large percentage of his backers, former top Clinton strategist Dick Morris said Monday. "What's happened is that Bush has set up a trap for Kerry," Morris told Fox News Channel's "Hannity & Colmes." "He has so emphasized Kerry's flip-flopping, so-called weakness, vacillation, all that stuff, that Kerry has to take strong positions in the debate." That will force Kerry to make his position clear once and for all on Iraq, the top strategist said - which will inevitably cost him...

    Wisconsin State Journal ^ | September 28, 2008 | Dee J. Hall
    SPRING GREEN - Invoking images he hoped would resonate with local voters, presidential candidate John Kerry talked Monday of America's love for the Green Bay Packers, his memories of working on his uncle's dairy farm and fishing trips as a child during a 90- minute town-hall style meeting at River Valley Middle School. Kerry even held up a copy of the Wisconsin State Journal and answered three questions posed by readers. And he tried out his humor on the local crowd with a jab at President Bush's leadership - and the fact that he's 5 inches taller than Bush. Kerry...
  • Size seems to matter in Kerry-Bush debate

    When it comes to presidential debates, it seems size does matter. John Kerry, a 6-foot-4-inch Democrat, poked fun on Monday at George W. Bush, the 5-foot-11-inch Republican president for reportedly insisting that podiums be set far apart to offset his opponent's five-inch height advantage. The Massachusetts senator told a town hall meeting in Spring Green -- where he is rehearsing -- that voters should not be afraid of changing commanders in chief in the midst of war with Iraq and the battle against terror. "You know when your horse is headed down toward the waterfalls or when your horse is...
