i watch some, and bush got in a few blows in there, but he talks like a fool so its hard to follow him at imes. i personally dont like Kerry, im not pro bush either. but i'd rather see bush go for another 4 yrs then see kerry in office.

The only thing I could picture is who would win in a fight if they both put pair of boxing gloves on right now.

i think most ppl, on either side, democrate AND republican, have a bad problem with being completely biased. I do not support either candiddate so here is my view:
Bush started out very strong pointing out the flaws in everything Kerry was saying about the war being a mistake and how we have no allies. What an insult to places like Poland and Great britian. Unfortunaley bush didnt seem so articulated later and seemed repetative.
Kerry has tons of great promises that will lead nowhere; two new branches of the military?! Where the fuck are the troops coming from for that - we are already undermanned. He also claims he will spend tons more money on several things. Where is that money coming from. He failed to explain HOW all of these great promises will become reality. I also feel his views with north korea are ridiculous; bush very truely stated that china has more sway than we do and we definatley want to keep them on our side, they are a world super power with 1/5th the worlds humans.
Kerrys delivery was mush better, but that isnt what i look for in a president.
I dont feel I can trust him one bit.
Bush, I feel I can trust but I dont agree with him on many things.
You know this is pretty unbiased, because im an not voting for either candidate.
wow i just typed way more than i wanted to...
BLAST ON YOU!

I am watching it right now. (They actually send a rerun of the whole damn thing here in norway.)
I have just one thing to say: I am glad i don`t live in the united states.
Oh, and one more thing: I recommend the album "war on errorism" by nofx.

Actually.. i thought the whole bloody thing was pretty abysmal. Everything from the uber-scripted agreement on stuff from podium height to reaction shots, to Kerry's lack-luster performance (in my opinion) to contrast in a positive way, Bush's "straight-talk" and "decisiveness." I paced the entire time yelling at Kerry to just speak his point, and drive home the whole "Just cause it?s decisive, doesn?t make it right" point. I thought things were going pretty sour. I was sure that there would be an instant bounce in Bush's favor, and I would have to immediately throw myself off my balcony much to the dismay of my girlfriend who counts on me for half the rent.. and a steady supply of fresh blood.
...then, I turned from CSPAN to CNN.
Wolf Blitzer: "..Bush seemed irritated and uncomfortable"
Judy Woodruff: "Indeed Kerry seemed much more in control...."
Jeff Greenfield: "....I'm reluctant to use the word but he (Kerry) looked presidential"
Then to MSNBC..
Chris Mathews: "I don't know how anyone can deny that this was a good night for John Kerry"
Joe "I'm a douchebag and was accused of killing my secretary" Scarborough: "I clearly think John Kerry came out the winner in this one"
HOLY SHIT WHAT?! A POSITIVE MEDIA SPIN FROM THE MAJOR NETWORKS?! And Joe Scarborough wasn't even frothing at the mouth this time!
Then I threw myself off the balcony in disbelief, hoping to wrench my brain from the obviously peach schnapps induced delusional state I was in, much to the dismay of my girlfriend.. and the cat I landed on.
Then the fucking Gallup "We're obviously on meth and we're gunna call 1600 people 20 seconds following the debate" poll showing 41% of undecideds who watched the debate had a favorability increase for Kerry, while only 26% had one for Bush. Am I fucking dreaming? Jesus Christ.. It's actually turned back into a real race.. apparently... and much to my surprise.
Ahh.. the power of lowered expectations.
"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed, The world in arms is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from an iron cross."

i don't think i heard vietnam from kerry, i remember him saying 'the war' refering to vietnam, after they were talking about if the war was worth the death of american troops in iraq.

Kerry reminded of John goodman in big lebosky bringing up his war past every chance he could - even Clinton mentioned 2 weeks ago that he should stop focusing on vietnam. Yes he did serve and that makes him more understanding of what it is like to be in war, and he is more sympathetic to our troops, but that doesnt mean he will make a better president. Shit my uncle was messed up bad in vietnam, and that doesnt make me vote for him.
BLAST ON YOU!

I've heard Kerry's handlers don't want him to say Vietnam anymore.... aparently people feal that being in a decades old war for 4 months doesn't automatically qualify you for the presedency...and it's pissing people off hearing about it endlessly.
As for the debate....well if I was a terrorist I would love for Kerry to win.
