Thoughts on the Debate

Filed under: Main — Ryan Jones @ 1:33 pm

buy modafinil in ireland Last night’s debate was close. The polls have 40% of undecided voters saying Obama was the winner, 20% saying McCain, and the other 40% undecided still.

It was clear from the start that McCain didn’t want to be there. He refused to look at Obama, and appeared angry most of the night.

Obama also appeared mad later in the debate.

Obama’s anger was probably in relation to McCain sidestepping a lot of the questions. McCain would often rant about something that didn’t actually relate to the question he was being asked.

I’m shocked that Obama didn’t actually attack McCain at one of his weakest moments though. At one point McCain mentioned fighting pork barrel spending and used the bear program in Washington as an example. Perhaps Obama wasn’t aware, but McCain actually voted FOR this spending, and I’d have loved to see Obama call him out on it.

I would have liked to see some 3rd party candidates there, but I guess they’re just being realistic.

I knew McCain was going to pull his POW card too, I just thought he’d play it more.


  1. McCain was indeed transparently angry. I think it goes beyond the debate or even the campaign.

    John McCain suffered unimaginably in service to the rest of us. When his sacrifices are denigrated or ignored by those who never endured such treatment, his anger is understandable. I believe this instance is more revealing than the debate.

  2. John McCain and everybody else needs to get over the past.

    He can’t play the POW card for the rest of his life.

    Sure, he was captured and it sucked. I don’t wish anybody to go through what he did, it had to be horrible. I can understand how much shit he went though.

    But guess what, it’s over. If it’s continuing to be a major factor in his life, then he’s not mentally fit to lead a country. Instead, he needs counseling.

    So let’s drop the POW thing. It’s not relevant to him being a president.
