Town Hall debate

Postby Neato Torpedo » Tue Oct 07, 2008 9:19 pm

%-6 Obama's tanking already. Sound bites ("Senator McCain said the fundamentals of our economy are strong" AGAIN) and condescension ("I have to correct Senator McCain, not surprisingly").

Then again, McCain reference to "Obama and his cronies" wasn't too respectful either. :-?

McCain is pathetic. He is down in all of the polls and he has turned this into a smear campaign. He isn't even being specific with his answers, while Obama is at least trying to be specific even though it is still a little vague (all politicians are like this, we'll never get specific answers).
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...

Lot of finger pointing going on by both of them, and not a lot of actual talk. It's annoying.

It's really not right that so much stock is put on these things when little fact checking actually takes place.

I don't know how you can say Obama is tanking Neato. That's exactly why Obama is so far in the lead right now and why he won the last debate. Its what the majority of Americans are feeling.

I wrote that in the first 2 questions. He's improved since then. :-D It's a problem that I have that probably results from me being a Cubs fan: I come in expecting my side to lose. :-/

McCain's really confident in his contradictions.

I thought the first debate was close, but Obama is taking this one easily it seems.

To be fair, so is the word fundamentally. But at least that sounds genuine.

With this much bickering, only one way to settle this: McCain-Obama ladder match.
