1. Yeah it was silly of me to start the thread hours before the debate and expect any type of intellegent conservsation about the debate, myself included. (I think it lasted about a page).

    So go ahead and discuss the debate here and take the political crap/name calling to the other thread.

    Anyway here's my take:

    I feel McCain is going to do very well tonight. He loves the town hall style so this will be the most comfortable debate for him.

    I also think he's going to just hammer the hell out of Obama on raising taxes in a time of an economic downturn, even if it is on the top 5%. I've always said before that Obama is making a huge mistake by raising anyone's taxes. Keep the rates the same and look for other ways to cut, but whatever. You can't get everything you want from a candidate.

    It will be interesting to see if we get any Rev. Wright or Bill Ayers questions. I concede that Rev Wright is an issue but from everything I've read I just don't see a major connection with Bill Ayers. They served on a board together and I would think their relationship was not as close as Keating and McCain.

    I was going to post the other relevent threads but I think that's a bannable offense.

  2. I think that Mccain will win this debate.

    However, I think it's too little, too late imo.

  6. Obama > AIG

    this marks the first (and probably only) time I cheer Obama when he disses big business. i'm sure theres a perfectly valid reason for the 400k junket, losers.

    Edit: I cringe every time a politician talks about jobs. The only jobs you're allowed to create are positions on your staff (as few as possible plz).

  9. What does that 400k have to do with mccain ability or plan to run the country? Stay on Track already. Way to have no answer for treasury sec Obama and go on a" change" rant instead LOL

  12. This election sucks. The choice is between Mr. Socialist and Mr. Populist-lite.

    They're both statists through and through. Liberty and Freedom are to be rolled back under either candidate's administration.

    Exactly. I for one am tired of the negative campaigns...I want to hear solutions, not the problems and the blame game all the time.

  15. Obama's Bill Clinton-esque slightly closed fist with thumb pointing forward > McCain's Donald Trump-esque open back handed forward motion with thumb pointing up.

  18. At this rate McCain isn't going to get one single vote from this debate.

  19. LOL. Which one of these three things would be your highest priority? McCain: All of them.

    I would think that being able to prioritize would be a necessary skill to be POTUS.

    I actually chuckled about that myself. Jesus, answer the questions.

  21. Obama just owned McCain sooooo fucking hard by actually answering the question and putting the priorities in order instead of going with the bullshit copout answer of "it can all be done at once"

  25. did anyone catch the following... and correct me if I misheard it.

    Obama chastises John about saying the base of the economy is strong.

    Then, when Obama is asked if it will get worse before it gets better... he says something like... No, I believe the economy is strong.

    Well, which is it sir?

    Yeah, I caught that. The base of the economy is strong but the fundamentals are not. Check, got it... thanks Barack.
