Kerry Kicking Bush's A--

Bush just seems to keep repeating himself. And insisting that Kerry is flip-flopping when Kerry is saying completely reasonable explanations of his position-- Bush screwed up a war that Kerry would have supported if done right-- just undermines his whole argument.

And yes, the eye rolling and smirking, angry mouth just makes him look like a pouty little boy.

Kerry's aggressiveness just seems to work well. He may get wonky at points, but compared to Bush's repetitiveness, it just makes Kerry look like he has a vision to deal with the complications of Iraq and the rest of the world.

And of course, Kerry doesn't even need to beat Bush point for point. He just needs to seem like a reasonable alternative as commander in chief. Polls consistently show people think the country's going in the wrong direction. If voters feel comfortable with Kerry, they can vote against Bush with the will that's out there.

Bush got a bit stronger near the end of the debate, but Kerry did what he needed to do: articulate a clear position, hit Bush hard on a number of points, and look like a solid potential commander in chief.

...geez, and Bush's final statement sounded like a rapid fire mumbling of Karl Rove's talking points, not a coherent philosophy.
