One thing that struck me as particularly odd about Bush's performance at the second debate is that he said this:
That's what liberals do. They create government-sponsored health care. Maybe you think that makes sense. I don't.But very shortly before, he had said this in praise of his own accomplishments:
[I]n 2006 seniors are going to get prescription drug coverage for the first time in Medicare.If you're going to brag about a dramatic expansion in government-sponsored health care, it would be wise to find something else to criticize about your opponent's plan.
