Debate, face-off, press conference, whatever
Whatever you call this rigged event, here is a news flash: Fox News reports that Kerry lost the first debate, shook up his advisors and did better in the second debate but still lost. "Bush is the victor," Fox reports.
Fanciful? Perhaps. We can't read the internal memos from Roger Ailes news director of "fair and balanced" Fox, but we know from past behavior that the spin will twirl you around your living room tomorrow night.
Al Gore reminds us that in the last debate of 2000 candidate Bush promised to allow Americans to buy prescription drugs from Canada; promised that tax cuts would create millions of new jobs; and promised that if he put troops into combat, "The force must be strong enough so that the mission can be accomplished." And, and I'm not making this up: "And the exit strategy needs to be well defined."
This, from NY Times today: "Over the past 30 days more than 2,300 attacks by insurgents...1048 American soldiers have been killed..." and on and on and on. Some exit strategy. Thank you, Mr. President.
