LINCOLN, NEBRASKA - Democratic presidential hopeful
Senator John Kerry had a impromptu debate Tuesday morning, about some of the heavy issues facing America today. It all came about during Kerry's
"Solution For America" bus campaign tour, when Kerry took the stage before an eager Democratic gathering.
"We need to be stronger as a nation and stop this War on
Terror", Kerry stated to his opponent as the auditorium shook with the thunderous applause of supporters.
"No that is not the way. America needs to remain strong in the War on Terror, giving full support to the objective originally set forth" stated John
Kerry, picking up a second microphone.
At one point, the audience was shock as a bold Kerry lambasted himself "You support easier welfare reform and that's not the way it needs to be
done. I, John Kerry have voted on much stricter reform policies, because that is what America needs."
He also took himself to task over the issue of flip flopping on some big issues. "You seem to have no problem taking a side and then switching at any
time", the Senator charged.
"No I don't do that at all", he stated in rebuttal.
During the debate, Kerry also ridiculed the idea of capital punishment for terrorists as a "terrorist protection policy," predicting that it would
just discourage other nations from extraditing captured terrorists to the United States.
"Well, we do somewhat agree on that", his opponent stated. "Should I make it to the White House I would still be against capital
punishment...except for terrorists."
Speaking out against some of the nation's worst issues, Kerry also credited himself for supporting most of those issues during his votes in the
Senate. "We can change and make this country better" he said. "Or maybe we can't" he later told reporters.
One area the candidate seems to agree? "The removal of George W. Bush from the White House, is the number one issue that John Edwards and I are
working on. Our comprehensive plan for America regarding education, the environment, and of course national security is simple. Get Bush out", Kerry
Bush-Cheney campaign manager Ken Mehlman described Kerry's debate as mean-spirited and negative. "He was so hard on himself regarding the issues. I
hope that his voters can still understand his vision for America. One of his visions anyway... Vote Bush!"
