Patterico's Pontifications


Homeland Security

Filed under: 2004 Election — Patterico @ 6:23 pm

Kerry has a good answer on Homeland Security. But you all know I think Bush has not done well on this issue.

And Bush has a very weak beginning to his answer: how will we pay for it? People don’t want to hear that — not when John Kerry just mentioned tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans.

UPDATE: Much later in the debate, Kerry is asked what the top threat to America is, and he says without hesitation: “Nuclear proliferation. Nuclear proliferation.”

Damn right.

I’m pleased to see that Bush agrees, though he puts it in terms of “weapons of mass destruction in the hands of terrorists.”

  1. Bush is sucking this one up.

  2. But I don’t think Kerry did himself any favors by suggesting that he’d discontinue the bunker-busting bombs. That makes no sense.
