As I see it right now...while this is going on...Obama is getting rattled. Obama is doing his thing...saying a lot of words and saying nothing at the same time.

Seems like a pretty uneventful debate to me. Neither has really wowed me with anything they've said.

I think that Obama is getting more and more angry as the minutes pass. McCain is doing a great job and has had several great shots and one liners go over well. He's obviously in command. Now I just watched McCain talk right over him and shut him up. This is GREAT!

watch the body language.... mccain actually shows his disdain for obama... and obama is grasping by talking directly "at" mccain instead of the moderator.

obama sounds like a smart man. he says beautiful things. if he wasnt so far left that he had to be careful how he words things, he may be a good president.... but not with a democrat congress giving him the blank check... :no: he is just too fiscally and socially liberal to be our president...

and he is still using his flash-speech instead of giving actual examples or something more specific. not that this is his fault, he doesnt have alot of "experience" to draw from. mccain has done it all and probably more than once, so when he is asked a question, he has specific examples of his own experience.

its like life experience... when you are a teenager and lookin to move out, you have alot of ideas and not alot of experience to work with, so many of your ideas are pretty wild and vague... when you turn 50, you have done it all, and made all the mistakes associated with chasing the dreams. you have a wealth of experience to draw from and make better and more specific decisions.

I still haven't seen much from either guy that has made me say "yeah, he's the better choice." This has actually been pretty tame compared to some debates I've watched. Maybe he's just naturally soft spoken, but McCain almost seems like he's afraid to speak up. I'm sure he's not, just seems that way.

I think it's funny when they show the split-screen view of the two candidates, whoever isn’t talking is standing there with this really pissed off smile on their face.

mccain isnt a yeller.... he's done this for more years than my father has been alive :rofl: well, almost

also, he is too old to be loud :biggrin:

barak needed to make the case that mccain is actually an extension of the bush program.... he didnt get it done, and actually i think mccain may have put even more distance from between himself and bush.

ha and as i type.... this is the same thing they are talkin about on fox....i should send a resume :biggrin:

I was glad to see Jim Lehrer not trying to get things to stirred up nearly as much as a lot of these moderators do.

???

I didn't like the fact that he kept telling them to “talk to each other” “respond to him, not me”, but in the majority of interviews/debates that I’ve watched, the moderator will almost get into an argument with the candidates and practically get involved in the debate.

Now the analysis begins....each side will declare their guy a winner.

The thing that got to me was that John Mccain looked like he was losing his temper over the Kissinger thing. I goggled it to see what I could find.

Watching the recorded debate now. Obama seems to be struggling when it comes to speaking on the fly and not being able to use pre-written catch phrases.

McSame = King Shrubbie #3... Talks the same, walks the same, spews the same.
Sounds like the same ole' same ole' to me.

A vote for these two will get you the same thing you've been getting. Bend over,,, spread your cheeks, and willingly accept more of what you've been getting. Then stand up straight and thank them for the screwing they gave you.

Do you really want another George "Dolt" Bush ?!?!?

That Henry Kissinger seems like a stand up guy.
It was right of him to make a press release clarifying his statement.
Even if it did make his friend of 30 something years look bad and Obama look good.
Good for Kissinger!!

How does Calling Bush a Dolt become a scare tactic ?

Brydog,

I don`t care how many times you or noboma say it, but McCain is not George Bush. He is actualy like no other politician we have ever had.
No matter what is at stake.....always Country First! That`s what we need

I am still shocked Kissinger made that press release splitting hairs.....it just proves that both teams will do anything to win........lol!!!

Both teams declare victory but neither guy made any real blatant errors.

I have never seen Obama debate before except the clips they show on the news. He is a tougher guy then Kerry. I liked how often he said "middle class" I don't recall Mccain saying "middle class" much. But neither one made me think "he's the guy".

I don't think the undecided decided based on last night.
We will have to see.

Obama people will think he won...McCain people will think he won. I won't bother in debating who won...BUT i found this on a blog and it cracked me up.

Go to the below link and when the video starts to play go to about 4 minutes and 27 seconds.
While Obama is talking it sounds like McCain says "horse sh*t" under his breath LOL :lol3:

FAIL

After the McCain-Obama debate, however, Kissinger issued a statement saying he doesn't favor a presidential meeting: "Senator McCain is right. I would not recommend the next President of the United States engage in talks with Iran at the Presidential level. My views on this issue are entirely compatible with the views of my friend Senator John McCain."
