"anyway, I am new tonight... as you may not have seen me before in here.. just a FYI that I am deaf here and can read lips okay..
at the end of debate where Kerry and Bush shook hands.. Bush was asking Kerry, Can I talk to you later tonight? Kerry said sure then Bush said where would you be? I missed what Kerry said.
I wondered what Bush wanted to talk to Kerry about??
... not good. Not. Good. At all.
I watched them talk after, and it seemed like Kerry was surprised... something was off. I was wondering what was said...
When the president asks to talk to you, you don't not meet with him...
Whatever Bush says, whatever it sounds like, I wouldn't trust it worth a damn.
But Kerry's a senator... he knows the game."
Later, another poster put the exchange as:
"Bush: Can I talk to you (later tonight)?
Bush: Where you gonna be?
Bush: ... We'll find each other.
Kerry had his back to the camera for this."
So why did Bush want to talk to Kerry? That's beyond unusual.
- Maybe he wants more debates
- Maybe he has some security or terrorism issue (although that would be handled by the Secret Service, I would think)
3. Bush is poor health, either physically or mentally, or both, and desides he can't handle continuing to campaign, or to do the job if re-elected. It's way too late to have a replacement for him on the ticket; I supose he could drop out and Cheney be president, but if this was known, they would lose-nobody wants Cheney as president, even if he seemingly functions as such already. So, he is going to drop out and endorce Kerry (there are Nader and Badnarik and others running).
Whatever the explanation, this is megaweird. I watched the video again (see cspan.org for it), although I can't read lips, this seems like a reasonable explanation of approximately what they said.
