It's Faux. They want to rile up the base.
Doma is an issue to the base.

9. The RW has framed this debate to win.
They think they can hit a home run with it.

2. Clark kicked ass on the Michael Moore question
He has support from McGovern, another Senator name?, a secretary of the Navy, has broad support across the party. Going to change leadership of America.

11. Yeah, but he had a chance there
to say what McCain said in 2000: "I was serving in the military while Bush was defending the coast of Texas from invasion..." and he might have mentioned the extreme privilege Bush used to get that gig. The question was direct, as direct on that topic as we'll see in this race. 'Twas a whiff, imho.

Clark played it safe. He'll have many more opportunities in a better forum to attack Bush's record of service.

If you think so, Do another interview with your guy and see if he will say it to be put in print.

106. I thought that Clark handled the question skillfully
He didn't sacrifice Moore, and he treated the question with the total lack of respect that it deserved by saying that it wasn't something he intended to look into.

83. The candidates are getting about 30 second sound bites.
When their time is over a loud bell rings. FAUX is making sure no candidate can take a real stand. Once Clark gets the nomination, I firmly believe a confrontation over bush*'s v Clark's military credentials will become prominent. How could it not?

16. It was a great answer. Jennings did Clark a big favor.
Brings up Michael Moore's support and Bush's AWOL in the same question. Clark comes back with the rest of his endorsements.

Great.

but the question itself, was ridiculous. What? Does Clark now have to pre-read all of his endorsers speeches? Are the candidates now being held accountable for what they say? THAT was a STUPID question.

Nothing but air. He had a perfect chance to discuss * going AWOL in '72 and chose not to.

38. Hume maybe. I think Jennings' question to Clark helped Clark.
And it wouldn't surprise me if Jennings knew it.

The AWOL issue is not for a candidate to bring up. It is for the media to raise because of the candidate. That's the only way AWOL comes to life.

Jennings and Clark both advanced the AWOL issue today. A home run.

86. Jennings was being a dick

He was being a dick because he wasn't asking a question. He was specifically stating that Moore's statement was inappropriate and unsupported. He was baiting Clark into defending Michael Moore.

And when Clark didn't bite ... HE ASKED AGAIN!!!!!!!

Clarks response was great. He state that was Michael Moore's opinion. And Michael Moore isn't the ONLY one who has made that statement.

Of course around here, we know it's 100% true.


This is an issue for the general election. Candidates need to talk about issues during the primary. Direct Bush attacks on issues like military abandonment, cocaine use, and Skull & Bones should be saved for the general election ;-)

I concur .... and believe Rush confirmed it for me today
I have never listened to the big mouth before but out of curiosity listened for about 10 minutes at 12:00 pm. He really reamed Dean and called Clatk "retired General jack the Ripper"?!?! He totally mellowed out for Kerry.... I thought.... This is who they want..... which doesn't suprise me one bit!

44. I'm not sure, but I think he has addressed it
Edited on Thu Jan-22-04 08:52 PM by khephra
LIke Kerry could have stood against the war vote, Clark has the moral standing to be able to make that a point in this campaign. He's come close to mentioning this before, but backed off of this.

As I mentioned above, Clark is in my top three. He goes up to second and sometimes he goes down to third. I've been looking at him real hard the last week, and this is showing me that the General will sometimes back down instead of speaking the truth.

But I am happy that he defended Moore's right to speak his mind.

Win one, lose one in my book.

Edited on Thu Jan-22-04 09:01 PM by khephra
Believe me, I know about picking a time to fight.

That time passed long ago. We're in a fight. It's about time we start acting like it.

You and I both know that Clark has had time and the inclination for looking into the Bush AWOL charge. He dodged that subject.

I guess we're back to playing politics as usual, even for outsiders like Clark.

As stated in an earlier thread, this debate is all about trying to embarrass someone. They are trying to make news instead of allowing the public to be better educated on the the candidates' positions on the issues.

36. First Jennings is Now "Sir Prick-small-Dick alot" Second...
I knew that Michael Moore thing would come back to bite him.

Clark should have mentioned that Moore is a veteran.

Clark answered the question well.

If Clark would have defended Jr Spaceboy in Chief then he woulda got slammed for defending GWB.

Either way he woulda got slammed.

BTW did I say that Jennings had a small weinermeister?

101. I'm not fan of Liebermann..
but that was a great response to the moderator trying to bait him into attacking the other candidates.

...they haven't given him any questions to which a response could be applauded. It's all "DEFEND THYSELF!" bullshit.

I can't stand how the moderators are TRYING SO HARD to bait them. HAHA...Lieberman says "nice try"...

All the candidates got the message about negativity...at least for a little while. GOOD RESPONSE from Joe...haha..."nice try".
