    some people still seem to confuse Cheney's boorish arrogance with strength.

      Cheney is a better debater. I am no fan of Cheney's demeanor, but he projected competance and gravity. I'm not a fan of Edwards either and he did nothing to win me over even though I desperately wanted him to impress me.

      •  The media ascribes gravitas and (0+ / 0-)
        a sense of competence to arrogant people like Cheney and Rumsfeld.  It ain't there.

          I'm not reporting what the media said. Everything that goes wrong for us isn't the fault of the MSM or the Republicans. Sometimes we just suck.

            all our problems start outside of us.  We often suck. But I also recall how sickeningly the media responded to big strong burly Rumsfeld and the way he slapped down reporters--  Ooohh...a real man.  And the stories about how the adults were in charge again.  Your perception is your perception.  I was disappointed in Edwards debate performance, too, although I don't agree with the strength of your assessment.
