Right Out of The Box

McCain completely blew the first question. He had no rebuttal of Bobo's claim that it was Republicans responsible for the financial mess. Then, What the hell is he talking about, buying up mortgages? What a disaster he's going to be.


Delay that. McCain's now talking about the Fs – Fanny, Freddie, Frank…, but will he name names?


Did I just see Brokaw allow Obama a rebuttal period on the first question, and then deny the same to McCain on the second?


"How can we trust either of you?"

McCain should say: You have to trust one of us. But you can't trust Senator Obama… he received the most money from Fanny Mae of anyone except Chris Dodd, and it took Dodd thirty-years to accumulate his. Also, Obama has no experience and no track record.


Now he blows off healthcare?.


Obama's energy proposal is a lie – can't be done. Will McCain address that?


McCain's answer on sacrifice – garbage.


So far, no specific comments about Obama because nothing he's said merits being taken seriously.


And now he has – McCain had better point out that all taxes, whether they are levied on individuals or corporations – are paid by individuals.


The healthcare tax credit- how does that work for people who pay no income taxes now? It sure sounds like they'd have a huge new expense, Senator McCain?


There it is again: "I want to provide a tax cut for 95% of Americans." I know he said 95% of -working- Americans earlier, but this is exactly the slop talk that makes Obama Bobo.


Pretty good answer on "green" energy, Senator McCain, except for one thing – it's not bad news, it's good news that your climate bill failed. And that's one area where I'll cheer if you're a failed President.


Good question on healthcare as a commodity…

If you've got healthcare already, most of you ARE PRISONERS!

Obama says we'll be able to buy the same plan as he has… at what cost? Cheaper than we get from an employer? Can we choose between the two?

Senator Obama will fine parents struggling to get healthcare for their children? Huh?

Choice! Excellent point, Senator McCain… too bad you didn't explain how that will happen.

Healthcare a responsibility? It's a RIGHT! We already acknowledge that by treating everyone who needs care. And Obama just blew McCain away on this.


"My friends?" They aren't YOUR FRIENDS, Senator McCain.


I can't believe McCain didn't address Obama's Rwanda reference. We did have the ability to intervene – Clinton chose not to.


"We will kill bin Laden…" Big talk, Blowbo.


"I know how to get bin Laden… I'll get him…" Big talk, Hurricain.


Obama is going to pressure Baghdad… pressure Kabul… all that talk does is put pressure on my temples.


McCain is clearly enormously superior on the international front.


What? We have to provide monetary support to Europe, Bobo? You issued yet another statement? What did you propose? What bills did you introduce?

Reduce energy consumption? That's your real solution, isn't it Bobo? You want energy reduction at any price to our economy and lifestyle.


I would say, before the analysis starts, that the questions all seemed reasonable.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

    I can't believe McCain didn't address Obama's Rwanda reference. We did have the ability to intervene – Clinton chose not to.I loved Obama's talk about "moral obligations." I guess if Saddam was killing Kurds or Shia in mass numbers, by his logic we would have a moral obligation to do something…

  2. TedWest says:

    It's a shame time is so short for McCain to address his nonsense.

  3. dox^2 says:

    The debate was awful.

  4. TedWest says:

    McCain's gloves still firmly on his hands.
    I've been saying that McCain doesn't have the capacity to go for the jugular, and it's now apparent that he'd prefer to lose.

    I've been saying that McCain doesn't have the capacity to go for the jugular, and it's now apparent that he'd prefer to lose.His failure is apparent every time he tries to zing a joke. And he needs to stop with the same old one liners that he has been saying for the entire election… If I hear "a K and a G and a B" one more time…My optimism on this election is approaching the end…So now the question that remains for this election is how early on election night will Obama clinch 270 electoral votes?I don't even want to imagine an Obama presidency, a Pelosi House, and a Reid Senate.

  6. TedWest says:

    I think you may be a bit premature. McCain is pathetic, and this new mortgage program is outrageous, but I don't believe the polls. As Rush Limbaugh put it today, most pollsters want Obama to win. However, it's important that they get it right in the end, so they can distort all they want now, but it will be the last few days where the polls matter – if at all.
    I don't think McCain hurt himself tonight, but he's missed every opportunity to rip Obama's hear t out and show it to him, and I find that appalling.
    But there are a whole lot of people who won't vote for Obama under any circumstances, and they may no be on the radar at this time.

  7. dox^2 says:

    We will know soon enough…

  8. Darcy says:

    The polls always favor the Democrats. If they say 4% margin of error, guess who's side is being errored upon? Why is it this way? Is it because there are so many of us, who when the pollster calls and asks who we will vote for, we say "I don't know" even though, as you said, we would never ever vote for Obama, but we just don't trust or like McCain? We are probably all going to take Ann Coulter's advice and "get drunk and vote McCain" we're just not prepared to tell that to a pollster at this point.

  9. TedWest says:

    I'd rather see riots than what those cities are going to look like if Obama wins – they'll make Gaza after 9/11 look like a New Year's celebration.

  10. Lexann says:

    I heard a commentator (I can't remember who it was now) state that the polls favored Mondale over Reagan, as did the media, who thought he was a bumbling idiot. When he won by a landslide, the Dems cried it must have been rigged, since they didn't know anyone who voted for Reagan. Reagan ignored the media, and took his message straight to the people. Don't get me wrong, McCain's no Reagan. But he may win in spite of his shortcomings. People like him, and especially Palin.My only consolation is that if Obama wins, we will have 4 years of liberal Carterism. That will probably be enough for Americans, and we'll kick him and his Congressional cronies out of office for perhaps a more worthy candidate. Palin 2012?

  11. Darcy says:

    Maybe Palen vs. Clinton in 2012

  12. TedWest says:

    Carter is the closest example, i think. Polls had him leading into the last week, when they strangely fell silent and it became "too close to call."
    Except that Reagan murdered Carter, though not like he did Mondale. What's interesting about Mondale is Ferraro. She was absolutely his blatant attempt to sway the vote, and she was just an obscure House member.
    The biggest difference between her and Palin though is that no one on the right tried to destroy her or even ridicule her. They did question her qualifications, but that was deserved, and even then, she was treated respectfully, especially in the debate – so sighs or rollin' eyes.
    The only qualifier is that I wasn't anywhere near as political then, so I could be mistaken, but since I wasn't political, my feeling is that I'd have noticed if she'd been treated unfairly.

  13. Lexann says:

    Won't happen. If Obama wins, Clinton won't run until 2016 (if at all), since he'll the the incumbent Democrat. If McCain wins, same for Palin. She won't run until 2016. So, maybe Palin vs. Clinton 2016?

  14. Darcy says:

    You are right, unless McCain wins but has to step down before 2012. It's a long shot, but it could happen.

  15. Lexann says:

    We can only hope…

  16. Darcy says:

    Let's be optimistic.
