You mean Edwards vs. Cheney, right?

Or do you mean that Edwards will contradict Kerry?
Link Posted: 10/5/2004 11:29:54 AM EST
Cheney
Cheney, not Kerry.

I thought Kerry was debating Admiral "It's a trap!" Ackbar?

IMO, Edwards did poorly in the primary debates, and that was against people with similar views. Unless Cheney has a W moment, he will easily appear the victor.
Link Posted: 10/5/2004 11:45:02 AM EST
Dick Cheney is pretty much going to mop the floor with Edwards' ass. The VP is not known for taking shit from people, especially lawyers. It's going to be interesting...

I hope he whips his ass like a red-headed step-child.

As soon as the transcript is posted on Cspan.org I will upload it to my site!!

I'm going to have my popcorn ready for when Edwards tries to pull the "Haliburton" card.

Cheney will hand him his ass.
Link Posted: 10/5/2004 12:28:52 PM EST
On substance, Cheney wins easily.

But I FULLY expect Edwards to use his slick talking, word smithing, trial lawyer BS to try to trip up Cheney.

Edwarsd didn't make millions as a slime ball lawyer cuz he was inept as misrepresenting the facts.

No, but he was able to cherrypick his battles. Something he won't be able to do tonight...

Good point, to a point. I hope you are right.

IF Cheney lets him, Edwards can make ALL SORTS of unfounded allegations, as your typical slimeball PI lawyer would. IF CHeney lets him, Edwards can set the entire tone of the debate.

"Halliburton, Halliburtin, Halliburton, payoffs, no bid contracts, corporate scandals, 1,000 dead GI's, no WMD's...." - it would be REAL easy for Edwards to essentially lie his way into putting Cheney on the defensive.

I believe Bush's poll numbers would go up 10 points if Cheney tells Edwards to "Go F*** himself" on National TV tonight.

I would expect VP Cheney to be ready for that method of attack. It is the logical and easiest choice for Edwards.

Possibly, but the backfire potential is huge, and Edwards is smart enough to know it. Now that Kerry has closed the gap, or at least stopped the bleeding, he will feel more pressure to appeal to the center. Those that can tip the scales (swing voters), will be turned off by unfounded rehetoric.

For those who don't think the VP can do damage to the campaign, remember Stockdale?

True.

The conundrum the Dems find themselves in is in having to

1. Use all sorts of inflammatory rheotirc to keep the emotional hell fire enflamed in the rabid DU types,


AND

2. Use reasoned logical arguments to appeal to the moderates still undeciede.

Tought to do at the same time, but I'll GUARANTEE you their WILL be some red meat tonite for the FAR left base Kery needs.

Looks like they are dumping talking points onto blank pads at the start. some debate condition?

lame. how long can Edwards write "Halliburton" over and over?

Straight off the bat quoting Bremer
and Rummy.

Ouch.

Cheney reduces charmboy to jello. Thats my prediction and I'm sticking to it.

did you hear that loaded question that the moderator asked cheney, that bitch!

Cheney handled that well. Charmboy looks like a little bitch with is opening comment. misleading the American public. what a pube.

I sure hope so, we need that.

Charmboy is going off topic. Cant answer the question. So should Saddam be there or not??

Wow Cheney looks really nervous. He's constantly fidgeting with his hands. Edwards is doing much better than Cheney and seems to be kicking Cheney's ass just like Kerry did to Bush. You think they would have learned something from the last debate. Hopefully Cheney is just getting warmed up.
Link Posted: 10/5/2004 4:11:37 PM EST
Same as usual, Edward's pounding on the no connection to 9/11 thing, but Iraq was reported to be connected to Al-Quada.
Link Posted: 10/5/2004 4:11:57 PM EST
Cheney is taking him to the woodshed.

I wish Bush had looked this good against Lurch!

are you watching the same debate? or is this just some dellusional liberal fantasy?
Link Posted: 10/5/2004 4:12:31 PM EST
You know, If Bush could speak like Cheney we would be sitting here talking about who to run in 08. Very forceful and clear in his opinions.
Link Posted: 10/5/2004 4:12:40 PM EST
Cheney is spanking that ass!!!

PWNED!!!!! Cheney did it - he mentioned Kerry's record - woot!

Could not disagree more.

Cheney is kicking ass, yes!
Link Posted: 10/5/2004 4:13:47 PM EST
Every time there is an "opening" for Edwards (i.e., hes got the last word on a question), watch for Edwards to CHANGE THE SUBJECT and take a cheap shot.

He'll do it every time.

When John talks about miltary tactics, it makes me laugh. I always envision him better selling used cars or serving biscuits n gravy at popeyes chicken.
