It is good for you to watch debates.  It reminds you to act responsibly to the citizens of the United States of America and enforces the belief that you do have a place in politics in the United States of America.  As the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 21, part 1 shows: Everyone has the right to take part in the government of his country, directly or through freely chosen representatives.  This, in combination with Article 29, part 2, In the exercise of his rights and freedoms, everyone shall be subject only to such limitations as are determined by law solely for the purpose of securing due recognition and respect for the rights and freedoms of others and of meeting the just requirements of morality, public order and the general welfare in a democratic society, leads me to write that I am voting for John Kerry, and it is not a result of his having attended Yale University.  The reason it appears President G.W. Bush lost the debate is that he does not get any criticism in the white house.  He had a difficult time explaining himself and did not finish within the debates explaining why he repeated that Senator Kerry switches positions.


Personally I do not like what I see in President Bush.  He reminds me of a proud man in the worst sense of the word proud.  He tells us he knows something and it is not proven, and knowing that personality I know I could not question him and that he will not clarify.   His behavior is exemplary of those citizens who demand rather than appeal in their dealing with people, or as the common vernacular would put it “Throw their weight around” by insisting they are right and positing they are too busy and important to explain themselves.


This has been my first impressions of the first presidential debate.
