The past few days, one of the excuses Obama's corrupt media has offered to explain Obama's debate backside-kicking is that John Kerry won the first debate in 2004.
There's just one problem with that narrative: it's not true.
The first debate in 2004 was the one where John Kerry uttered his infamous 'Global Test' comment; in response to a question about approving pre-emptive military action, John Kerry said he would do so only if said action:
passes the global test where...you can prove to the world that you did it for legitimate reasons.Translated into English from bullcrap, that means giving France and the UN Security Council a veto over U.S. Military action.
(Sidenote: That's exactly what Obama did in Libya)
Global test was the biggest takeaway from that debate, and the Bush campaign ripped Kerry on it for the next month.
With all due respect to Obama's corrupt media, Big Bird is no global test; try again.
