Dennis Kucinich on CNN w/ Wolf Blitzer (04/07/04)
Edited on Wed Apr-07-04 04:32 PM by Wonk
re: Iraquagmire

http://www.cnn.com/CNN/Programs/wolf.blitzer.reports /
...a debate on U.S. involvement in Iraq with presidential candidate Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, and Rep. Mark Foley, R-Florida.

edit: removed "NOW LIVE" from subject line. It's over. It was basically a rehash of various talking points. Dennis said the war was waged on false pretenses from the beginning (which it was), Foley replied "but, Saddam is a bad man", etc.

Check this thread later for an mp3.

3. I thought Kooch did really great.
Made great points...and the Repuke he was up against was using some really dumbass "pride" arguments, I have to say. Dennis called him on his "hubris."

He won that debate pretty clearly, in my mind.

4. Excellent! Intelligence conquers Repug Rhetoric and Kuch Slayed Him!
Kucinich said this is "A March of Folly in Iraq," he turned Wolfs quetion about "cut and run and comparison to Viet Nam" by turning it back onto Wolf and CNN's promo of their report about how the British had to get out of Iraq after WWII because the religious factions united and drove the British out."

At every turn he made Foley look like a depraved idiot who had no information to support his views.

Magnificent. :toast: to you Kuch!

6. Dennis did well
that Foley guy drives me crazy. He has the most fucking ridiculous look on his face when he is on camera and of course his main argument was "We Can't be No Pussies in I-RAQ" in a nutshell...

7. He said he stayed in as candidate to give a Democratic alternative to the
Bush plan in Iraq! Good for him! I saw him here in NC this weekend. He is so articulate and intelligent. Not a fake, like so many of them are. He engaged his audience and answered every question with grace and depth.

8. Most of them look like that. They have the light of evil shining out of
their eyes and the grin of avarice on their smiling or grinning mouths.
