According to Drudge, NBC reports late Monday night that the huge weapons cache reported missing by the NY Times went missing before the invasion. The Times had tried to infer that the weapons disappeared under Bush's watch. If the weapons were as dangerous as Kerry and Edwards said today, the invasion of Iraq was justified and should have been done earlier. This is a developing story and may be a show-stopper for the alreading sinking Kerry campaign.
It is apparent that John Kerry and John Edwards have decided to say and do anything to get elected. They say that the president wants to privatize Social Security when in fact the president's plan only allows for a voluntary set-aside of less than 5% of a person's own money in a private investment account. Current retirees are not effected. They bring the vice president's daughter's lifestyle into the politcal fray while their campaign chairman says she is "fair game". Now they criticize Dick Cheney getting a flu shot when he has a heart condition. Even Ms. Heinz-Kerry gets into the act by bashing Mrs. Bush because "she never worked" which is a lie since Mrs. Bush was both an elementary school teacher and a librarian as well as a hard working wife and mother. It seems to me that the democrats are getting desparate.

I was appalled when the "talking heads", with the exception of Sean Hannity, declared Kerry the winner of this debate. True, the president is not the master of "nuance", but that is what I like about him. If someone asks him a question, he answers it directly with no spin or bull. He is a humble, decent, God fearing man. On the other hand, Kerry and Edwards, shift and twist their positions depending on the audience and the political mood. We need more than that. We need substance. As to the next debate, I think the outcome will be much different. The candidates will be answering questions from real people, and the president handles these situations well.
