The Third Debate

Now that it is over I am relieved that Kerry did a credible job. I suspect the ratings will be down from the previous debates but that the important voters; those that have not decided yet, will have tuned in. I think Kerry will get a 1 to 2 point bounce from the debate but that it won’t show up for a few days.

I hope Kerry comes out and apologizes for the Cheney gay remark. I did not find it offensive but Kerry needs to diffuse the issue before it becomes ammunition for Bush.

Tort Reform

Why can’t Kerry and Edwards get it straight about tort reform. “We need to balance the need for protecting people from abuse by large corporations and the need to protect the large companies from frivolous lawsuits. We will do that. We have a plan to keep frivolous lawsuits out of the system and still protect the right of ordinary citizens to get  justice.” Thatwould sound right.

Best part of the evening on the boat

Originally uploaded by lawssny.
This is where I would rather be right now. Did not get out to the boat as much as I would have liked to this summer. Maybe there will be a few good weekends left this fall. Hope so

More thoughts on the debate

Saturday 6:39pm  Still no good info on who won the debate. I think Kerry lost a couple of golden opportunities. Bush was defensive.

The debate

Woke up this morning and tried to find out how the debate played to others. No luck. The news media is rightly being reticient about calling victors. I thought that Kieth Oberman's blog mirrored my thoughts on the debate. Kerry won on points.

Bush wears wire!

Who would have thought? The president wears a wire to get prompted during the debate. Even if it is not true it sounds like something he would do. SEE STORY
