Debate #2: Pusher

"Why can't we buy cheap Canadian drugs?" I have other issues with drug reimportation, but Bush is making good points on issues of pure safety. Plus, he's knocking the magical talisman of "cheap drugs" entirely, with the alternatives. This could have been a winner for Kerry, but I don't see how he can salvage anything from Bush's big-government preemptive strike. Kerry's answer seems to be intimating Bush just hates people being healthy, or something. The Grinch theory of Republican behaviour may work for a hard-left audience, but it doesn't sound too convincing without applause. Kerry claims to have fixed Medicare. Not singlehandedly, but he's taking more credit than he probably deserves.
