Reader Greg write: “The debate is centered all around Bush’s policies. None of the questions have been or I presume will be directed towards Kerry’s policies because, not being the president, he has not enacted any. So, in essence, Bush is being ‘attacked’ by both the questioner and Kerry.”
Maybe, but I think Bush is doing a solid job of turning Kerry’s words against him. If a viewer is sticking for the whole 90 minutes (most aren’t), the accumulative effect Bush’s debate strategy is strong.
