The Debates: V.P. Edition

Well, I am keeping with my practice of giving my views on this before looking at any newspaper or other blog. My view is that Cheney won last night and I'm not sure that it was particularly close. Remember, if I'm changing presidents in the middle of a war, I need a good reason. Edwards did not give me a good reason last night, although I really liked what he had to say about Israel. To my surprise, I thought Cheney was a stronger supporter of gay marriage than Edwards was. Cheney seemed to have a better handle on the facts and figures and if he was wrong, well, he at least sounded confident and in command. Who would I like to see one heart beat away from the oval office? Last night, it would have to be Cheney.

By the way, I am going to go check out the factcheck.org or .com site he spoke about in relation to Haliburton.

Advantage: Cheney.

It's factcheck.org. He gave it as .com but that's wrong. In fact, Soros snagged the .com and has it forwarding to an anti-Bush site.

Edwards shocked me with his stance on Gay marriage. But that wasn't a prime issue to me....

I thought they both did well in the debate. I thought it was a tie, with Edwards sounding exuberant and lively, appealing to the ones who want change and Cheney showing great control, doing his Roosevelt, elderly statesman best, appealing to those who want status-quo.

You say "one-heartbeat" away? I say, he should BE the heartbeat, rather than Bush. Cheney appears much more in command, much more authoritative than Bush does. He always has.

Whenever I look at a Presidential candidate, I ask myself, if I were on the battleground, preparing to charge a hill, bearing my rifle, scared to death, which man would I want to throw his arm up and say, "C'mon, troops, follow me!" Who would I believe had the best ability to get me and my comrades out alive?

I have to say, out of the four men I've seen so far, Bush would be my last choice. He does not inspire me. I worry about him. I don't worry about the others so much. I must be missing something the rest of you see in him, because so many seem to have that kind of faith in him and I just...don't. *shrugs*
