IF KERRY WINS....

*WILL GDP growth of 4% under Kerry be DISMISSED by you as it is today, or praised???


Neither.

*Will future jobs created be credited to BUSH, OR KERRY? If Kerry, then what about future job losses????

It first, bith will be attributed to Bush. Later, both will be attributed to Kerry.

*Outsourcing and manufacturing job losses: If this trend doesnt stop, will you blame Kerry like you did Bush???

I'm not sure anyone blames Bush for outsourcing. I think they blame him for not doing anything to stop it. If Kerry tries to slow outsourcing, he'll get credit for that. (By the way, I'm generally in favor of oursourcing so long as policy does actually encourage it.)

Kerry has promised us more manufacturing jobs and less outsourcing. Will you hold him to that promise????

Sure.



HEALTH INSURANCE: HOW MANY LESS AMERICANS will be uninsured in 4 years?

Don't know.


GAS PRICES: When gas prices go down, will you praise Kerry? When they go up will you blame him as you do Bush?

I don't blame or credit Bush for gas prices.


COLLEGE: How much will tuitions go down in 4 years?

Probably not at all.





If Kerry wins, consider this a pre-emptive strike on your rush to lower expectations.

Of course. That's almost always the case and it will especially be so since both branches of Congress will likely be Repuclican-controlled. Kerry'll likely get no "honeymoon" either, regardless of his victory margin, from bitter Republicans.


For 4 years you have blamed Bush for all these things, and tonight I DARE you to hold Kerry to the same standards.

It's funny, one thing the Left and Democrats are good at is criticzing and tearing down their own presidents. Clinton got hammered by his erstwhile "friends" in the "liberal" media. Republicans, by contrast, have a much greater tendency for "cult of personality" hero-worship. (See: Reagan) I mean, seriously, consider what a wimpy "all hat, no cattle" legacy loser Bush is and look at how some people make him out to be Churchill or the Second Coming.
