Being Steadfastly Wrong is Not Leadership!

Not to put too fine point one it, but Bush was spanked last night.

It is clear from last night debates that Kerry commands a much clearer grasp of the issues, and a better understanding of America’s role in the world as the Earth only remaining superpower. Ours is to lead by example in league with our allies, not unilaterally, with arrogance and distain perched upon our shoulders.

Bush is nothing more then a puppet, and last night the strings were being pulled and almost seen. He offered nothing new, nothing of substance, nothing but the same tired “lame” message we have all heard before. The bottom line is that we should not be in Iraq, and it is indeed the “wrong war, at the wrong time, in the wrong place.”

I will submit for the record that Saddam was a dangerous man and needed to be isolated and contained; we along with our allies were doing that. Iraq presented no clear and present danger to the United States. It is funny how the President seems to think it is okay to play paddy-cake with North Korea and Iran while they openly make nuclear weapons, but Iraq needed to be invaded. And for what exactly; what is this week’s reason?

To those who hold the President to a higher standard then beer buddy, Kerry scored points last night, he spoke from a position of intellect and thoughtful reflection, Bush spoke from the heart. One cannot lead from the heart if the mind is disengaged!
