Trial advocate Edwards could not defend Kerry against charges!

Pittsburgh Standard

           Debates, debates, and debates have become the talk of talk shows as we head into presidential elections. As the Vice-presidential debate concluded between V.P Dick Cheney and V.P candidate Sen. John Edwards last night, there was a clear cut winner on Foreign policy.

People who were waiting for the showdown between Cheney and trial lawyer Edwards were not disappointed. Both had good points on issues but it was Cheney who rammed it home for the viewers who were not busy watching the baseball playoff games.

My favorite statement was when Cheney told us he used to wonder why Edwards and Kerry were for the 87 billion dollars for our troops and then voted against it until he realized it was because of Howard Dean.

In the primaries, both of them were going up against Dean who was mustering a lot of anti-war supporters to his side. Edwards and Kerry could not have that so they voted against the 87 billion dollars to get anti-war supporters to their side.

If there was one powerful moment during this debate, it was when Cheney told us that Edwards and Kerry could not stand up to Howard Dean when the pressure was on and how can we expect them to stand up against Al Qaeda.

Cheney clearly won this debate because he focused on the Presidentís success on the 'War on Terror' and made the viewers see that 90 minutes of rhetoric by Kerry during the first presidential debate does not erase 30 years of his voting record on defense issues.

In this 'War on Terror', our defense needs to be strong and we need a strong leader. Cheney once again showed the people why we need to keep Pres. Bush in office for four more years and not trust the likes of the Edwards-Kerry ticket.

When speaking about the terrorism in Israel, Cheney made a good point that Saddam Hussein used to pay $25,000 to the families of suicide bombers but now with Hussein captured, the number of suicide bombers in Israel also decreased.

Domestic issues are important but whatís the point of focusing on domestic issues if we are attacked. Bush-Cheney ticket already has the administration and people in place to fight the war on terror. Now is not the time to switch leaders. When we were attacked, a lot of domestic issues were put in the back anyway to go after the terrorists.

If we are well protected then we can focus on domestic issues too. We do not need a ticket like Edwards-Kerry who are not experienced in foreign policy as the Bush administration is.

Listening to students on the University of Pittsburgh campus revealed that the majority of them are more interested in foreign policy than domestic issues. This does not mean domestic issues are not important for they are. Even there, Bush-Cheney have a plan that is better for America than Edwards-Kerry.
