The L Word
The debate last night wasn't even close -- the president thrashed the flipper. Though I find the townhall format tedious to watch, W clearly loves it. And it showed.
Hanoi John, on the other hand, obviously sensed things weren't going his way; that's why he trotted out tired and weird canned remarks about Halliburton. Kerry has made the war on terrorism the centerpiece of his campaign but last night he came across as unprepared for questions on that topic. Oops.
The most significant moments of the evening were when the president invoked the L Word to remind the audience that Kerry isn't a taxpayer-friendly, moderate Democrat who, contrary to his campaign promise, will cut taxes for "the middle class." Some Bush excerpts:
That's what liberals do: they create government-sponsored health care ...
They [the National Journal] don't name him the most liberal in the United States because he hasn't shown up to many meetings. They named him because of his votes ...
He just brought up the tax cut. You remember, we increased that child credit by $1000; reduced the marriage penalty; created a 10-percent tax bracket for the lower income Americans -- that, right at the middle class. He voted against it. And yet he tells you he's for a middle-class tax cut.
It's Halloween time and John Kerry's costume is that of a centrist Democrat. But by invoking the L Word, the president unmasks the senator for what he is -- a tax-hiking, defense-gutting liberal. If W sticks to this course, he'll win by a decisive margin on November 2.
