Ok, so I will admit that I actually watched the Iowa debate Sunday morning. As a conservative, I have absolutely no intention of voting for any Democrat, but the frightening thought did pass my mind . . .
God forbid, what if one of these libs actually becomes our next president?
I’m not going to recap here the substance of what each one said. It doesn’t really matter. After all, when was the last time Democratic words ever matched Democratic deeds? So I was watching just to see which one appeared most presidential.
From my p.o.v. , I’d have to give that honor to Hillary Clinton with Joe Biden coming in at a very close second. Barack Obama placed third if only because he seemed somewhat tentative/evasive. Bill Richardson came off like a light-weight on foreign policy. And then there was John Edwards.
What can I say about Edwards??? Everything about him from facial expressions to body language spells PHONY! And did anyone catch that delicately crooked little finger??? Wonder if The O'Reilly Factor will bring out the body language experts for Edwards’ Sunday performance?
George Stephanopoulos, moderator, did a pretty fair job of putting them on the hot-seat.
Notice how Political Wire put it. The words “gently” caught my attention.
In fact, Edwards "gently admonished Mr. Stephanopoulos for 'trying to create a fight' by his questions when 'any Democratic president will end this war... The differences between all of us are very small compared to the differences between us and the Republican candidates"
The most interesting part of the debate was over foreign policy with Biden and Clinton cautioning that we can’t just immediately pull our troops out of Iraq. And Biden’s ads broadcast in Iowa call for a responsible, yet not too hasty, exit from Iraq. Looks to me like those two are now playing to the moderates and the undecided.
I read where the polls are saying that when it comes to projecting values, the Democrats are way behind the Republicans. Well Duh??? That must have been the reason for the question to each candidate about the power of prayer. Do they actually pray? Put your minds to rest, these Democratic candidates all believe in the power of prayer. Did we expect them to say otherwise?
Much has already been made about Barack Obama’s humorous (and obviously rehearsed) response to “How did you prepare for this debate?”
“To prepare for this debate, I rode in the bumper cars at the state fair.”
But hands down, the best impromptu comic relief came from Dennis Kucinich’s response to the question about prayer.
“I’ve been standing here for the last 45 minutes praying to God you were going to call on me.”
