Only one VP debate and a Presidential debate within 3 days afterward to salvage the damage?

Is that normal? I want more Cheney.

Yeah! We need more Cheney! He needs to alienate more voters to the left side!

DOes Bush get a 50/50 or a lifeline? Bush debating is gonna be sad. It will be like the Millers vs Bud debates. Bush up there making up words and making a horse's ass out of him self while the Kennedy sits there and doesn't say a word knowing he is coming off more smart than Bush with all his words.

The questions and answers will be memorised in advance. They always are.

Bush will try to stick to the script repeating himself with his infamous "in other words" analogies, and Kerry will try to throw him off.

And that shouldn't be too hard!

Bush could have an ear piece and the questions in advance....it still won't save him.

I hope we will see a real series of debates this time around. One that will include ALL the presidential candidates, not just the two the media are cramming down our throats.

Sorry PON, Didn't you know Bush banned the news channels from showing/mentioning the other parties? Yep, Bush banned CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, so forth from mentioning/showing Nader, Bandarik(sp?) and any one else but him and Kerry. I am sure he would have had Kerry banned if it was feasable(sp?).

But as said, it won't be a real debate. Bush will get the questiones before hand, have the answers given to him by someone else, and most likely an earpiece for when he starts making up words.

Are you telling me that Bush controls the liberal media???
That he is capable of keeping MSNBC & CNN from running stories on Nader and Badnarik? I'll give ya Fox

At the same time people are claiming that the Republicans are campaigning FOR Nader in some states.

No, I can't buy into the theory that Bush is controling the media on this issue.

The problem comes from the parties stiffling real debate. They only want people to have 2 opinions on the issues. That way they will either pick the one they like... or they will choice the other candidate because they don't like what one says. They know that there are more then 2 opinions on any issue, that just don't want to allow for people to make a real choice.

Bush will be slaughtered.

I happen to know one of Kerrys friends who protested alongside him through vietnam and is still a friend of his... He told me that Kerry has always been aloof but his saving grace is his articulacy.

He's articulate and smart, Bush is going to look like the bumbling hillbilly.

This debates will be something to see, even if bush is going to memorize the answers he still going to have some trouble with his speech, and when he is under stress he gets worse.

Kerry's flowing speach will probably go over quite well in the blue states were people speak like him. But as they say, when in Rome...
Bush speaks the language of the Hillbillies in the red states. You just might be looking at another 2000 election, where one gets the popular vote, and one the electoral college.
