My Opinion: Bush won BY FAR...

I thought it was pretty much a draw. Neither candidate took any big chances on doing something really stupid. Basically just repeated their memorized campaign lines. But most of the polls that I've seen have Kerry winning the debate. Don't how anybody could say either candidate won "by far". Unless something dramatic happens over the next couple of weeks, the election will come down to who "gets out the vote" in about a half dozen states. We could very easily see a repeat of 2000. I wouldn't even be surprised if W wins the election with less votes than Kerry. Just like in 2000. I'm ready for it to be over.....
Hang on to that phrase "by far", Josh. You can use it again in a few weeks.

Who won? I too would call it a draw more than anything. Though I didn't get to watch the whole thing, I did listen to a large portion of it.
One of the things that I did notice was that Bush was much more composed in this debate than in past endeavors. Good on him.
Like most people on this board, though, I already know who I'll be voting for, and it ain't the shrub.

As we all know, who does or doesn't win the debates makes no difference on November 2nd. We will survive whoever is elected or reelected...we always have. Just be informed and head for the polls the first Tuesday in November.

I agree. We're not electing a debater, we're electing a leader. I am amazed that anyone who has followed this election can still be "undecided"??? I've already voted absentee. I'll be fishing on election day. Whoopeee!
let know who wins http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/smile.gif
i think all the city dwellers should meet up at Manuels after voting ( and when they can serve again) to watch the results, scream and moan dependent on the roll call of states, drink some cold ones and tell fishing lies.. I mean stories
Watcha all think??

so what is the difference between lies and politics ... i mean really
i think fishermen would make great politicians .....
the lies just get bigger and bigger and bigger
Leísee. There was Herbert Hoover, Architect of the Great Depression and builder of much trout water. We also have Jimmie Carter, and Bush Junior. I donít know if Iíd call this an auspicious group or a suspicious group.

Actually, Bush Sr is far more of an angler than Dubya who only uses it for the occasional photo op. The other big time republican angler was Eisenhower with places in PA and CO that he frequented. And then there's old Zig-Zag hisself, but that boy obviously has been drinking water straight from the 'Hootch!
By the way for you salt water anglers, there was a time when in GA you owned the beach to the low tide mark. Some south Georgia boys were fishing along a beach on St.Simons when the property owner came down, made a big stink and tried to run them off. The group of anglers began to protest this treatment but the leader of the group agreed that they should leave. That group leader, then Gov. Carter, went back to Atlanta and made Georgia beaches public property to high tide mark! So you can thank Jimmy for your public access. Wonder if he could help with access like that on trout streams?
