Bush Wins Debate!

Today - fortunately for all freedom loving people - Bush was back to his usual self. Plain speaking, folksy and casting proper light on the man some call a flip-flopper and as being out of touch with regular Americans. Everyone has his off-days and it looks like the last debate between Bush and Kerry was just one of those days for Bush, but not tonight. Bush hit all of the right notes and gave a performance that is causing heartburn for the Kerry camp.

Bush needed a solid performance and he delivered, which in turn means Kerry is going to have to pull out all the stops if he intends to counter Bush's new found momentum.

Chris Mathews on Hardball noted how "Terrific" Bush seemed tonight and how "Dull" Kerry was. Fineman commented that this was "The Real Bush" that so many Americans have come to love, and now the race had just become that much harder for Kerry. Other pundits and analysts also gave Bush high marks, and likewise noted that while some of what he said was possibly entirely "iffy" in terms of fact, his zingers were memorable and may have changed the outcome of the campaign.

... I know ... the debate hasn't happened yet... it's just a prediction ...

POST DEBATE UPDATE

I ... I need to stop making predictions.

Chris Matthews thinks Bush in second debate was terrific, and that Edwards was a squirrel. Chris Matthews is a terrific squirrel. Tip O'Neill would ask that he be sports reporter in a small redstate newspaper, where he could be loud and unnoticed.

What I find frightening is that I made my posting before the debates, as a spoof to show that shows like Hardball are now little more that GOP shills.

Bush could have showed up, roasted a kettle of puppies and ate them Tex-Mex style on live tv, and the pundits would have glossed it over and commented on how great Bush performed. The way Cheney lied - openly and deliberately lied with a straight face - illustrates that behind all that they are capable of anything, and the media will underwrite all of it.

This country is in a lot of trouble.

Har! Great post, I nearly did a spit take when Bush said he had cut discretionary spending to 2% per year. Even the Cato Institute calls him the "mother of all spenders."
