Would Kerry be better for America?

I watched last nights debate.

I had a few distractions when my daughters came home from a "Play time" at a friends. My girls are 5 and 4 years old. I also have a son that is 1, but he was already in bed.

Either though I feel Kerry did a great job in the debate. {He better be good at debates for the 20 years of being a part of the political process} I don't feel he said anything to prove he would be a better President for the current time. Kerry has changed his position so many times in just the past 12 months. I'm not going to go into all of them. Of course everyone knows the main statement that has been out there. He stated he voted for the bill for additional funds to pay for weapons and such before he voted against it.

If I was debating Kerry in this format, I would have had difficulty knowing where to start my rebuttal with the 90 second allotment. Kerry continues to make statements that are not truthful or they are extremely exaggerated.

What did I see in Kerry last night? A man who is a very good debater, but I didn't see a man that could lead! I have never been able to follow someone who I didn't feel was whole heartily behind his statements. America and the world have no idea where Kerry stands on issues of importance.

What did I see in Bush last night? A man who has strong convictions that prevent him from disguising them with his facial expressions and body language. I like that. A man who has lead America through a very difficult time. The world knows where President Bush stands on issues of importance.

Kerry made claims that we have no Allies helping in the Iraq war. I loved it when Bush made the reply something to the effect of, tell that to Britain and Poland. I will have to check, but I think there are over 20 countries backing us in Iraq and the war on Terror. We saw what it was like to have a President that holds the some of the same ideas as Kerry. I watch in horror as I saw service men being dragged through the streets in a foreign land and have Clinton do nothing about it. Is that what we want in a President? That is probably what we would get in Kerry. Oh, he would go to the UN and voice his displeasure with what happened and draw a line in the sand. But when that line was crossed he would only draw a new line.

So, to answer my question: Would Kerry be a better for America? The answer is an absolute, no doubt about it, NO!

I wouldn't feel that the future of my three children would be safer with Kerry as President.
