Debate

"People love America. Sometimes they don't like the decisions made by America."
     —George W. Bush, in the debate just now
Uh, so what exactly do people love about America? The fast food?

I think Bush is coming across even more stupidly in this debate than in the first one.

Edit: This quote from Bush was even better: "I hear there's rumors on the, uh . . . 'inter-nets'? . . . about a draft?"

He seriously pronounced it as though he'd never heard of the thing.

Further Edit: Bush actually feels it's necessary to carefully specify, when asked who he would appoint to the Supreme Court, that he wouldn't appoint justices to the Supreme Court who would rule that slavery is constitutional??? Good goddess, we really are in desperate straits if there's doubt over whether Bush is going to manage to re-institute slavery. And then the most ridiculous part was that Bush brought this up in the context of saying he would only appoint judges who adhere strictly to the intentions of the constitution, and he said he would not appoint a judge who would support slavery because the constitution doesn't require that, the constitution says that people are all - and here it seemed like he was about to say "equal," but then he stopped and seemed to have vaguely recalled that in fact the constitution actually said different races aren't equal, so he changed the subject and left the sentence unfinished.

. . . And OMG, someone just asked Bush to admit he made wrong decisions and cite three specific decisions where he did the wrong thing!!!! Naturally he's merely replying by refusing to name any of them. disi is exactly right though, in saying that "the most aggravating part of all though" about this question was "Kerry's response. All he needed to say was that he was unable to respond to the president's answer because HE FAILED TO PROVIDE ONE." Kerry's actual response was not nearly that pointed, and ought to have been.
