Live Blogging the Third Presidential Debate

15 10 2008

Hmm.  McCain mentioned Nancy Reagan in the hospital, but not Dick Cheney??  Where’s the love?!

Obama: “The fundamentals of the economy were weak”  zing!

McCain:  Said he doesn’t want to ask Obama a question.  He’s talking directly to the people…sounds familiar! Talking about some plumber named Joe who met Obama and wanted to buy some business. Obama would raise his taxes.  Now he’s looking at the camera speaking to “Joe”.

Obama:  Said it sounds like he’s been listening to McCain ads.  zing!  Obama explains, yet again, his tax plan.    Talks about Joe the Plumber.

McCain:  Joe the plumber again.  We need to spread the wealth around.  He wants Joe the Plumber to spread the wealth around.  Why would you want to tax ANYone?

Obama:  Wants to cut taxes for 95% of Americans.  Warren Buffet can afford to pay a little more, so Joe the Plumber could pay less when he needed it.  Nobody likes to pay taxes.  He doesn’t mind paying a little more.

Q.  Aren’t you both ignoring reality about the deficit?  What would you cut back?

Obama: We’ve been living beyond our means and we have to make adjustments. Strong believer in pay as you go.  Go through the budget line by line. Investment in the future – health care, energy, education – will all allow us to drive the economy in the future.

McCain: Wants to get back to home ownership.  (whiplash!  Palin tactic!)  Schieffer tries to get him back to the question.  Now he’s on energy (another Palin tactic) – wind, solar, offshore drilling.  Across the board spending freeze.  First a hatchet and then a scalpel.  “I know how to save defense spending”  “I know where to cut”  Tariffs on sugar can based ethanol?  I have no idea what he’s talking about. Somebody in jail, some airline…Blizzard of words!  Planetarium projector!  Dang.  I should have made a Bingo card…

Obama:  Earmarks account for 1/2 of 1%.  Yes we need to eliminate “screwy” things but that’s not the main problem.  When Bush came into office we had a surplus. (Yes!)  Now a deficit of well over 1/2 a trillion.  Pursuing same policies will not get us there.  >Ding!<

McCain:  Thinks he can balance the budget in four years.  If Obama wanted to run against Bush, he should have run four years ago. (I bet he was waiting for that one).  Let’s look at our records, Senator Obama.  (He’s looking at him!)

Obama:  Debunking the Obama raises taxes thing.  Even Fox news agrees.  McCain has been a major supporter of Bush.  Giving credit for his stance against torture, but on economic policies he’s agreed with Bush.

Q.  Both pledged to take the high road.  Palled around with terrorists!!!  Will you say it to each other’s face?

McCain:  Been a tough campaign.  Ah…it’s Obama’s fault for not agreeing to do Town Hall meetings.  Tone of campaign could have been different.  He regrets negative aspects of both campaigns.  Rebuking Lewis for the George Wallace comments.  Obama didn’t repudiate remarks.  We will run a truthful campaign.  Obama has spent more money on negative ads than any political campaign in history.  He said he’d take public financing, and didn’t tell the truth.

Obama:  We expect campaigns to be tough.  2/3 think McCain is running a negative campaign.  1/3 think I am.  Nothing wrong with debate on issues.  American people don’t want to hear about how hurt we are.  Town Hall issue is rediculous (my word).  McCain campaign said if they talk about the economy they lose.

McCain:  Didn’t hear a repudiation of Lewis.  Joe the plumber again.

Obama:  Lewis made his statement without the knowledge of the campaign. Talking about the Palin rally.  “Kill him!” “Terrorist” and she didn’t call them out.  Think that Lewis inappropriately drew a comparison.  Immediately put out a statement saying a statement it was inappropriate.  What the American people want is to focus on challenges.  When people suggest “I pal around with terrorists” we’re not talking about issues.

McCain:  He’s proud of the crowds at the rallies.   He won’t stand for anyone saying his crowds are anything but patriotic wonderful Americans.

Obama: If we’re going to solve 2 wars, financial crisis, lifting wages, then we have to work together.  We can’t try to characterize each other as bad people. 

McCain:  I don’t care about a washed-up old terrorist, but we need to know about it and about Acorn.  Tearing apart the fabric of the country! (oh good Lord)

Obama: Ayers has become primary focus of McCain’s campaign.  Brilliant explanation of Ayers and Acorn.

McCain:  All the details need to be known!  Ayers, Acorn, Ayers Acorn.  My campaign is all about goodness and light, and not raising taxes, bla bla.

Q.  Why would we be better off with your running mate?

Obama:  Experience, foreign policy, crime bill, violence against women act.  Hasn’t forgotten where he comes from. Shares the same values.  Lists them.

(can’t wait for McCain)

McCain:  American’s have gotten to know sarah Palin. (and she’s sinking your campaign!)  Role model to women.  Took on her own party. Saw corruption. Gave money to taxpayers. Cut size of government.  Faced down oil companies. Reformer through and through.  Sweep out old boy network.  Understands reform.  Understands special needs families.  I’m proud of her. She’s ignited our party.  I can’t tell you how proud I am of her.  Her husband is a pretty tough guy.

Q. Is your opponent’s VP qualified?

Obama: The American people will decide. 

McCain: Biden is qualified but wrong.  Obama wants to increase your taxes.

Q.  How much can we reduce foreign oil imports?  Give me a number.

McCain:  Canadian oil is fine, but we need to eliminate Middle Eastern oil and Venezuelan oil.  Mocking energy safety.  “You don’t tell people your going to renegotiate NAFTA…” (patronizing)

Obama: In 10 years we can reduce dependence so we don’t have to import oil from M.E. or Venezuela.  This is the most important issue.  Borrowing from China and sending it to Saudi Arabia.  Expand domestic production. Use or lose current leases.  We can’t drill our way out of the problem. Solar wind biodiesel, geothermal.  Fuel efficient car built in USA.

McCain:  “There’s another example of Senator Obama’s eloquence,  but you have to look at words.”  (Has he ever met his own running mate?!?)  Obama has never even traveled south of our border. (Has he ever met his own running mate???)  Maybe you should travel down there and you’d understand it.  (dripping snark)

Obama:  Actually I understand it pretty well.  Proceeds to prove he knows it pretty well.

Well, we knew this wouldn’t be a game changer for McCain and it isn’t.  This debate is more of the same.  Obama is undeniably presidential, and McCain is agitated and cranky.

McCain: Obama wants to sit down across the table  without precondition with __________. (In this case Hugo Chavez).  Did he mention that Obama wants to raise taxes?  Comparing Obama to Herbert Hoover.  Again.  He simply cannot invoke Herbert Hoover without sounding really old.  For Obama it would sound like a history lesson.  But McCain makes it sound like they were buddies back in the day.

Q.  Healthcare.

Obama: This issue will break your heart. Explains plan.

McCain:  Painful for Americans. Explains plan.  Joe the Plumber AGAIN!  and AGAIN!  Man, if anyone came up with Joe the Plumber for a drinking game, you’d be smashed.  How much will you fine people for no health care?

Obama:  Joe the Plumber!  *hic*  staggering, and hitting the floor.  There is no fine.  Joe the Plumber! *loses consciousness.*   McCain will tax health care benefits from employer.  Average policy costs $12,000, so $5000 won’t help much.

McCain:  Joe the Plumber x 3!  This is getting really rediculous.  I think Joe the Plumber has become the defining meme of this debate.  He’s the “that one” of debate III.   SNL will love it.  Squabbling about money.  He’s bringing up cosmetic surgery and hair transplants again.  He keeps making this little karate chop thing on the desk.  Joe the Plumber.  Too much government.  Government is too big.  Chop chop chop!  Democrats have been in charge for the last two years.

Obama:  Reiterates what he has already said.  Don’t take my word for it.  Listen to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.  Joe the Plumber…

Q. Roe v. Wade.  Could you nominate someone to the Supreme Court who didn’t share your views?

McCain:  Decision should rest with states.  Roe v. Wade was bad.  Should nominate on qualifications not litmus test.  Obama voted against Justice Breyer and Roberts because of ideology.  I will find the best people who strictly adhere to the Constitution. 

Obama:  Shouldn’t apply a strict litmus test.  Most important thing is fairness and justice.  This will be one of the most consequential decisions of the next president.  Roe v. Wade probably hangs in the balance.  Thinks that Roe v. Wade was rightly decided.  Good people on both sides can disagree.  Women are in the best position to make this decision.  Thinks it’s a constitutional, rather than state’s rights issues.   Court has to stand up for people.

McCain: We have to change the culture of America.  We who are proudly pro-life understand that.  Obama voted against bills in state senate partial birth abortions…terrible…  Voted “present”.  How do you align yourself with extreme pro-abortion.

Obama:  If it sounds incredible that I would vote to withhold lifesaving treatment from an infant, it’s because it isn’t true.  Completely supportive of ban for late term abortions unless there is a threat to the mother’s life.  He voted “present” because there was no provision for the mother’s life.  There must be common ground where we all say we need to prevent unwanted pregnancy, promiscuity, helping single mothers who want to keep baby.  Nobody is pro-abortion.

McCain:  He’s being “eloquent again”.  “Health” of the mother (made little quote thing with his fingers).  This is code for pro-abortion all the time…  Of course we have to work together.  Karate chopping desk.

Q. Education.

Obama:  Early childhood education.  Recruit new teachers especially in math and science.  More pay. Higher standards.  College debt.  $4000 tuition credit every year in exchange for military service, peace corps, community service.  Parents will have to turn off the TV, and instill thirst for knowledge.

McCain:  It’s the civil rights issue of the 21st century.  Ah.  Vouchers.  Choice and competition.  Find bad teachers another line of work. Charter schools.  Throwing money at the problem isn’t the answer.  We must improve. Make loans available.

Obama:  Important for gov’t to help schools.  No child left behind.  They left the money behind.  Agree about Charter Schools.  Bad teachers need to move on.  Disagree on the idea of vouchers as a way of securing problems.  Disagree on McCain’s record on college accessibility.  Our youth are not an “interest group”. 

McCain: Vouchers in D.C.  He’s getting pissy…  Cindy and “your wife”.  He’s really getting shaky and aggravated.  He’s not wrapping this up in a flattering way.  Precious children with autism…Sarah Palin knows better than most.  Vouchers are good and workable system.

Obama:  DC school system is in terrible shape. (Squabble about whether mayor of DC supports vouchers) 

www.mydebates.org for all three debates.

Closing statement:  My friends! America needs a new direction. I have a record of reform. Taking on my party.  (lots of blinking and chopping) We have to stop the spending.  Can you trust us or not?  Examine my record and my proposals for the future of country.  I’ve put my country first.  Proud to serve.  I’d be honored and humbled to serve.

Obama:  America is going through tough times.  Worst economic crisis since Depression.  Worst thing we can do is adopt failed policies and failed politics of the past and expect something different. Our brighter days are still ahead.  Need to invest in people.  Health care, tax cuts, college, businesses of the future.  Fought for these policies.  Not easy. Not quick.  We all need to come together.  Will work tirelessly on your behalf and on behalf of your children.

Whew!  Debates are over.  McCain was more aggressive, but Obama is the clear winner here.  He missed a couple opportunities to really zing Palin.  And missed an opportunity to talk about why we actually have to have taxes.  But, this was nowhere near a game-changer, which is what McCain needed.

McCain’s smile is creepy .. along with his ‘laugh’ .. and his incessant attacks on Obama while smiling/laughing is wearing thin already.

McCain sure does appear tense .. and is totally rambling in his ‘answers.’ He’s outright lying.

And he’s stumbling on things .. like right at the beginning when he was trying to mention Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. He said Fannie and Freddie Mae. Gotta be sharper than that, Johnnie.

Ahhhh .. McCain just covered one of his plans: I’m not George Bush .. and telling Obama in a very stupid comment that if he wanted to run against Bush, he should have done it 4 years ago.

I may not survive this debate ..

I don’t like how McElder insinuates that ‘ferriners’ hold the fate of the US in their hands. He certainly knows that Canada is the largest trading partner of the US and the largest supplier of oil to the US, followed by the other neighbor of the US, Mexico and third Saudi Arabia, and fourth Venezuela. As far as clean coal – how about taking a side trip to the Virginias and check out the mountain-top removal program which is destroying the natural environment there. Talk about dirty.

With the seriousness of the world today, why the H… are they talking about pro-life (and gay marriage).

#1 – overpopulation is the MAJOR problem facing the world today.

#2 – who gives a damn who loves whom? If love is involved, it CANNOT be bad.

We need serious thinkers who understand that the world is more than just part of the North American continent. These idiotic ‘issues’ will be the death of all of us.

Apologies, Hamlets Mill and GLAD you are only drinking water tonight. After all, we only get one liver.

Papa John: what’s up with the bulgy, blinky red eyes? And is his jaw wired shut or something? This is beyond weird.

Like some of you (and as someone who’s worked in the field of disabilities for more than 20 years) I will be more impressed with Palin’s familiarity with that field after she’s had a chance to find out what it’s actually like. Down Syndrome kids, when they get some early intervention services (instead of being carted around the country like a sack of laundry) can keep up with their peers for a good 6 years or so and then the differences really start to manifest themselves. Progress becomes slower. Kids start to realize they’re different and it’s HARD. When the peers start graduating from high school and they don’t–that’s pretty hard, too. Tried getting a job with an obvious disability? How about having a 40-yr. old who’s still dependent on you? Or starts to show early signs of Alzheimer’s?
I’m about to get off of my soapbox, now, but I’ll tell you that the money and resources for these kinds of services have not been impressive the last 20 years… it’s a hard road and I don’t think she has a CLUE about what’s actually ahead.

McCain was NOT a pro-life supporter when he ran in 1999. Dang! Wish Obama had this little gem to pull out to nail his arse tonight!!!

On August 19 of 1999, he told the San Francisco Chronicle, “I’d love to see a point where it [Roe] is irrelevant and could be repealed because abortion is no longer necessary…But certainly in the short term, or even the long term, I would not support repeal of Roe vs. Wade, which would then force X number of women in America to (undergo) illegal and dangerous operations.”

McCain has been scribbling notes… obviously not ones he’s going to use in this debate. Perhaps sketching out some more attack ads?

The comments section appear to no longer be accepting my comments tonite. Perhaps I offended the akismet gods by making reference to cats having bad gas after eating taco’s.

McCain just won’t shut up. Geesh. I think he probably won this debate – only because he knows how to run-over the other candidate. He’s practically begging, but he showed he knows his own stuff and he had several knock-out punches to Obama. BUT – I don’t believe a word he says. He’s a REPUBLICAN and that’s more than enough for me not to want to vote for him. I’ve already voted, anyway. BUT Obama did poorly tonight. He’s spewed out the same stuff we’ve all heard over and over again and not a lot of improvisational comments NOR did he fight back hard enough against McCain’s snarky comments. McCain is mean and nasty – and I think that side of him came out very much tonight. Obama needs to learn how to talk in situations like this – he stumbled and stuttered a lot and did not seem very relaxed or at ease with his comments and that makes me nervous. I wanted him to fight and be as spirited as McCain was and I didn’t really see much of that. I just hope this does not affect the numbers that Obama has built up.

Aussie Puck Mule Hussein – I agree with you. It’s just where I work they’re all the type of Republicans that go for McCain’s attack mode and when I ask them about Obama they say they think he’s a (in their words), “wimp.” So, I get on the defensive and think he should fight harder, say more stuff, be clear that he’s not what McCain claim he is and then say his “ENOUGH” or something like that. I have a fantasy that plays in my head where he berates McCain for going into such ridiculous territory because it’s not true and it’s false – they’re telling lies on their campaign trail and then he just bellows at him – “Enough, already. It’s not true – you’re lying to people.” In an eloquent way, of course.

Also – I saw McCain walk into the audience to shake hands but it looked like Obama left the stage. Did he?

McCain’s so angry. I really hope people see that. Of course, I see angry people every day. That’s why I’ve voted Obama. He reminds of that old hymn…which probably none of you have ever heard of…”There is a Balm in Gilead”

There is a balm in Gilead
To make the wounded whole;
There is a balm in Gilead
To heal the sin sick soul.

Some times I feel discouraged,
And think my work’s in vain,
But then the Holy Spirit
Revives my soul again.

Refrain

If you can’t preach like Peter,
If you can’t pray like Paul,
Just tell the love of Jesus,
And say He died for all.

That to me is Obama – he is a balm to all of us

no more – I too thought McCain was at the very least under the influence of Prozac or some such . Probably a good thing as he had a real struggle even so to contain his temper. Which brings me to my second comment in answer to a couple of you who commented about McCainus Interruptus. I can’t speak for anyone else, but one of my biggest personal pet peeves is to be interrupted when I’m trying to speak. I’m often told that I’m a good listener – and I do try to be. I care about what the other person has to say, and I always give them every opportunity to say it. I DO expect the same courtesy in return, and if I don’t get that simple token of respect, the interrupter loses mine. McCain is rude, crude, nasty and tasteless. And the condescending smirk says it all – I no longer need to listen to anything he has to say. Aarrgghh – I no longer CAN!

I’m black and it offends me, not because McCain is white, or Obama is black.

My belief is that black people who vote this way, want to be part of an elite group, however they say it is because the republican’s have high ethics and morals. You know the Christian thing! I am a Christian, but I am no fool, and don’t feel like I need to be part of an elitist group to be considered someone of importance. This is their thinking, and most black republicans look down on other black people.

I admit the t shirts were out of line. We don’t need to go down to their level.

I think McCain made a grave error by disregarding the health of the mother in an abortion situation. I had one a few years ago for that reason, and it was heartbreaking. F you McCain…I have two kids who need a mother. Was I supposed to wait until it was life or death?

Also, he admitted that no one who views Roe V Wade as a privacy issue would be appointed to the Supreme Court. How is that not a litmus test?

This pundits are sometimes smoking crack…Obama did not sit there quietly and take it all. He didn’t mudsling but he never avoided the issue either. He went head-on with some of the stuff said at rallys and was never afraid to tell Mccain that whatever was coming out of his mouth was bullshit. His strength, which they often miss, is his utter sincerity. He says what normal people think all across America. We are cynical and he acknowledges it. We have live beyond our means as a nation and he acknowledges it too. Parents do need to turn off the tv and encourage their children. He is like the first politician to talk like us, no spin, just fact (I won’t completely absolve his campaign, b/c some of his commercials have been off, but Obama himself is usually pretty straightforward) . I think his utterly pragmatic manner is his strongest feature. Its not “casual” its just being straighforward. His sincerity also comes through loud and clear. We feel it. Independents feel it. Why can’t they?

These people are clueless dunces on absolutely every body of knowledge on Earth except maybe NASCAR and wrestling.

That is all going to change now I hope. The rise of the Internet is going to separate the sheep who hear the “Lord’s Voice” from the goats. The “Lord’s Voice” is the spiritual intelligence of the unfolding World Age. These people better start studying Zoroaster before they start with Moses and Jesus.

Two things I loved in this debate…

Obama’s understanding of the labor issues in Columbia and his stance not to support abuse of human rights by endorsing a trade agreement.

Obama’s refusal to support a law that is not Constitutional. That is exactly right. Someone who knows the framework, respects the framework, and wants to work within it. Bush, on the other hand, repeatedly worked to push legislation or assignment of special powers outside of it. And we have the Iraq war as a result.

I do wish Obama would take a moment to explain the function of the “present” vote. It makes him sound like he was just hanging out in the back of the room having a smoke or a nap.

By the end I think McCain wanted to slap him. Can I do anything to make this guy angry and scary? Aaarrggh.

Sheesh aka Puck Mule Palin

McCain definitely improved in a seated mode where at least he didn’t look like a wandering Alzheimer’s patient behind Obama. And he toned down his ‘my friends’ only to replace it with Joe the plumber!

The debate went about how I expected it to go. McCain again fails to articulate his plans and instead relies on attacking his opponent. Instead of differentiating his plan from Obama’s and convincing us why we should find his options a better choice he attacks.

The questions had a little more meat in them this time which gave both candidates the perfect forum for outlining their platforms and plans. Obama used the time effectively to address the issues, McCain didn’t.

Each McCain attack was met with a well thought out response which effectively defended his position. His Ayers and Acorn attacks fell flat as I expected they would.

Obama looked presidential, McCain looked snarky at times, angry at others and that creepy grin is just that….creepy.

Overall, McCain didn’t make any major gaffes, Obama was cool and direct and answered the questions but there was nothing ground-breaking going on. I don’t think this last debate will hurt McCain, nor will it give Obama a bigger point spread in the race.

Obama is actually right where he needs to be. The risk of gaining a huge lead could have a negative effect on November 4th if people perceive that he’s so far ahead they can afford to sit this one out. So while it’s wonderful to see all that blue I would feel a bit more secure in having the race tighten just a bit more.

Did anybody laugh so hard when Obama mentioned about raising zero tax for small business owners on health care and McCain replied back with a wierd look on his face “ZERO”! LMAO, that was a real funny moment seeing a shocked look on McCain’s face thinking to himself, “really, zero?”

Hi! I am now watching the debate on CNN International here in France. It so pisses me off (and pisses my French husband off too) whenever those Repubs say that American businesses pay more taxes than in any other country in the world (or second highest). Bullcrap! He should come and work in Europe for a while and France in particular. Americans pay less taxes – businesses pay out so much less and the owners put so much more in their pockets at the end of each month. 35%? That is a middle tax bracket here in Europe – my husband pays more than that. And we have 40%/revenue taken out to go to social charges on top of taxes. My American friend here in Nantes owns a restaurant here in France and one in the States and I know what the difference of cost is. Plus costs for American businesses are so much less. McCain says Irish businesses pay 11% in taxes, but he should look at their costs!

Why oh why when asked about the qualifications of their running mates didn’t Obama bring up her Abuse of Power and all of the other questions swirling around her? Opportunity lost!

And good for him pointing out about helping parents of disabled children and autistic children will mean spending (which McCain repudiated!?)

Obama is absolutely right that spending money now on healthcare will reduce costs later. Spending money on creating jobs in infrastructure (roads, bridges, etc) and new energies will save us money and shore up our economy later!

I thought Joe the plumber was a Republican ‘plant’ too.

C’mon, someone at an Obama rally asks him a question (Novel idea, eh, Gov. Palin!) a couple of days before the debate, and McCain has it as the highlight of the whole night, like it was the main talking point in their rehearsals ?

If Joe is a real guy, and he has been working hard, and he has turned his plumbing business into a great money-maker, it sounds like now that he’s doing well, he wants to keep ALL that money and NOT pay any higher taxes ! Just greedy !

NY Dem : I agree. I think that it is extremely selfish, especially for someone as rich as McCain, to snear at “spreading the wealth around”. Of course the rich should help their less fortunate fellow Americans. Of course the rich should participate a little more in helping improve our schools and roads and paying for job training for those Americans laid off from their factory jobs. That’s what makes a country work. I know rich people, and some do give to charity (tho not many in France) but if they can afford to buy more cars, another home, fancy vacations and dress in Dior then they can sure as hell pay more taxes and put more money into the pot that’ll help create jobs and alternative fuels and better education, etc. Where does McCain think the money comes from for all of those things? Sarah Palin’s oil companies? When they want to cut their taxes?

As a Canadian, I wonder what will happen to Canadian oil stock (the tar sands in Northern Alberta and the Potash in Sask. and the oil that is drilled in various spots around Canada, including the off shore in NFLD) once McCain gets his greedy little hands and what the Canadian government will say once they realize that he has tapped out the Canadian oil supply. And yes, Mr. McCain, if you decide to get Canadian oil, you will get nothing but angry Canadians and an angry Danny Williams (and you don’t want that; just talk to Mr. Harper who didn’t get a Tory seat on NFLD with the election held here on Tuesday) down your throat. And trust me, it won’t be pretty! Drill baby drill my a**.

Carol (18:27:15) :

“I am hoping I can wear my Obama shirt in Red state Kansas Nov 5th.”

NO! It is important to remember that it is illegal to wear any party affiliation or candidate endorsement on your person when you go to the polls! If you show up to the polls in an Obama t-shirt they will make you leave and won’t let you vote. You will have to go home and come back without any visible candidate endorsements, i.e., t-shirts, sign, etc. This rule exists for an important reason. The polling place needs to be a neutral ground for all people to vote in privacy, and to be free of pressure from any campaign. They will absolutely not let you vote if you show up wearing an Obama t-shirt. Too many Obama supporters do not realize this, unfortunately.

So, please remember, DO NOT SHOW UP AT THE POLLS WEARING ANY KIND OF PARTY AFFILIATIONS, such as t-shirt, buttons, signs, etc. — it is the law, as it always has been. You will be turned away and won’t be allowed to vote if you do.

This is one of the reasons that ACORN is in such hot water: The ACORN activists were seen at polls in numerous locations in the country campaigning on behalf of the Dem cause, thus bringing charges of voter fraud against Obama — this is very serious stuff, and can’t be said enough. So, again: PLEASE DO NOT GO TO THE POLLS WEARING ANY OBAMA CAMPAIGN PARAPHERNALIA, IT IS AGAINST THE LAW. TELL YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

The question of what you can wear to the polls varies by state.

I think that mccain was very inmature in how he was acting on the debate…making faces like a little kid…I think it made him look bad, and
he always says the same stuff trying to somehow make obama look like the evil one…when none of it true….does he really think that the public is that stupid that we cant research the facts for our selves he has to lie..
I think obama is the better speaker…

People,
If someone rich wants to give money to the government and believe they now better how to spend it, all they have to do is write a check, the government wont turn it down. Or better yet, give it to a charity which actually knows how to reach people who need help. Pick one, Childrens hospital, Goodwill, Habitat for humanity..We don’;t need government spending our money. Most people like Joe the plumber or joe six pack, which is one in the same, just people who carry a lunch pail and work hard for their money. And don’t need to be taxes more, because it;s hard enough running you own home, we don’t need giving extra money to the government, for some Senator to attach an earmark on a bill so he’ll vote for it, which will send our money for some off the program to his community(constituants). Obama says that ear marks on a bill are a tiny fraction of the overall deficit. The truth is, those ear marks are like bribes, they buy votes for a multibilloion dollar bill. So the tiny freaction, controlls billions. That’s a problem, and to his credit, McCain has NEVER asked for an ear mark. Yet Obama is his short term has requested 1 billion worth in his 1st term as a senator. McCain’s been there for 30 years, so I’ld say somebody has a price. It goes back to the old joke, now we know what you are, lets negotiate the price.
It’s also sorta funny that Obama who is for the average person he claims, would not be for McCains proposal of using 300 Bill of the 700 bil to directly work toward helping homeowners shore up their morgauges.
I think that the devil is in the details, and we really don’t know Obama’s details. McCain has a record, Obama has a 1st term with a lot of questionable associations which are far left. Which leans toward bigger government, which believes they know better how to spend you money than you do.
I hope we can all make a good edumacated decion on this election. It’s is a tough time, I have 3 kids one a US Marine, one in college and one getting ready to graduate from high school. It is a struggle for me to send my kids through college, but I’ll get their. Their are a list a mile long for grants for lower income people to be able to afford college, which I don’t qualify for. So it’s probably easier for lower income kids to go to college than mine. I’m ok with that, my kids and myself will get them through college. I don’t want my taxes increased to support programs which already exist in the private sector and within government. Lets just reform programs that are their and help folks apply fot the assistance they need. I quess you can see that I’n not for bigger government. Which Obama will make even bigger..

Good luck with your decision

I heard McCain say Breyer on NPR and thought, “What? Doesn’t he mean ALITO?”

His brain is MIA and he can’t breathe and talk at the same time, even sitting down. It is really evident when he’s on the radio this time and last time, less so on TV for some reason.

this absolutely amazes me! Somehow I clicked on a news article and ended up in this blog, I should have known that it would be nothing but ranting. How can anyone think that people should be supported by fellow citizens? If I were spending all of my money to go to college and say, become a Doctor and heard that I have worked my butt off so that Tom, Dick and whoever can either sit on their butts at home all day or that my hard earned money will now have to support those laid off from their jobs(a horrible situation, I agree-but who? oh yes the great Bill Clinton sent jobs overseas), I would immediately quit school and sit on my can so that Obama can send me part of his money. You obviously forget he has millions, claimed millions in his earnings last year, so he should pay for me to sit on my butt and do nothing. How will education get any better in this country if our President says “oh don’t worry if you can’t, won’t or don’t work, we will let those that bust their tails all day support you?!!! Hollywood supporting this guy is above amazing, I mean who gets paid more in this country and now I can sit back and let Brad Pitt wait on me hand and foot. I guess next he will tell those that work for a living, “you can’t eat steak and shrimp anymore or wipe your butt with 2 ply toilet paper because it’s just not fair to everyone. This is such crap and I can’t believe Americans are standing in line to be forcefed this.

RB,
Yet Obama is his short term has requested 1 billion worth in his 1st term as a senator.

First of all, bullshit. It was closer to a quarter billion. STILL, your darling Palin requested- and received – more earmarks per capita than any other governor in the U.S. She loves to hold her hand out.

But that’s not the point.

You people keep going on about earmarks, but you don’t look at the number your state receives. If your own Senator or Representative didn’t bring some money home to his/her district, then that Congressperson wouldn’t have a second term. We LOVE the earmarks when they’re coming our way. We only cry about them when the other guy’s are getting more. Puhlease.

And taxes? How’s this, why don’t you go out and volunteer to teach the town kids, police your neighborhood, put out the neighborhood fires, take 9-1-1 calls and pave some roads. VOLUNTEER. That way none of us have to pay any taxes.

And when it’s time for you to get Medicare, be sure to pass it up. Who needs that crap when they’re old? Old is just God’s way of thinning the herd, right?

Also
would not be for McCains proposal of using 300 Bill of the 700 bil to directly work toward helping homeowners shore up their morgauges.

That was Obama working to get homeowners and taxpayers taken care of, dimwit. McCain just decided to help himself to the credit. Kind of like his “Change” theme. Who had that first? Oh, Obama! McCain hasn’t had an original thought for years.

An effective leader must have a vision. Obama does but McCain has anger. He reminds me of GW Bush a coupla spoil brats who must have their way and their way only. Obama is so right, they are out of touch and in McCain’s case very angry and eratic. That’s dangerous!!!
After hearing Obama’s argument on abortion in last night debate my 24 year old daughter decided that Obama would get her vote.
Can’t wait for Nov 4th!

The Only Q I have is why after the fall of Leahman Bros did obama sign the top three Execs to his finance team? I am certainly perplexed as to why you would have individuals presiding over a vast some of money that were more than responsible for taking a billion dollar corperation to absolute rock bottom destruction, a regular algonquin round table of intelligence if you ask me

and lets face it all you sniveling little tree huggers, I see none of you jumping at the chance to make a difference in the way of life that we have here in america you all think that the key to success is taking no resposability for ur actions and blaming someone else for not having enough money left behind in ur little trust fund accounts that ur parents worked there ass off to get. Hey everybody lets make this an even playing field institue socialism and we can all breathe a sigh of relief cause there is nothing to work for cause we all live in the same style house and drive yugo’s to our textile plant job that way we all get the same treatment, you flippen infants oh wait i know lets pay 40,000.00 for college and get a degree in phsyc and then at the end of it all be upset that your dreams of wealth and a nice living are dashed by the fact that you did not even posess the natural inteligence to persue a degree that had any substance to it, what a ponzi scheme, you are all abunch of simeans that are still stuck on galapagos

face (15:23:18) : jeez louise, what’s the deal with all the anger? Besides the fact that you are clearly on the wrong board, your wasting your time to think that any of your hate mongering will impress us, change our minds, or otherwise intimidate us. You are certainly only embarrassing yourself. And to think that conservatives like to call liberals ‘angry’.

In fact, all you are doing is making a perfect example, with your blathering, of the stupidity that indeed still exists in spite of evolution, unfortunately (oh, you probably don’t believe in that, which might help explain your denseness). As the saying goes, a mind is like a parachute; it only works when open. Judging from your embarrassing lack of English proficiency, among other clues, your mind doesn’t hasn’t been open for quite a while.

Your assertion that Obama hired the former execs of Lehman Bros. is curious at best — do you believe every conspiracy theory and fabrication that you come across? There are certainly enough lies about Obama circulating at this time to keep people entertained for the next century or more, and frankly this claim is preposterous and delusional at best, and simply, categorically false. Where did you get such an idea? The bar? Seriously, we know that the former execs at Lehman Bros. DO NOT have any kind of positions with Obama’s campaign, nor will they have any position in his administration. How do I know this? Well, if you had watched the debate you might remember Obama saying specifically who would be advising him with regard to financial matters: 1) a certain G.O.P. senator by the name of Dick Luger, & 2) Warren Buffett — widely believed to be a foremost expert in financial matters, and who happens to be the richest person in the US (he has a way with money, one would say). Besides that fact, Obama hasn’t appointed anyone to any positions yet because he hasn’t yet won (his advisers in the campaign are there voluntarily — the paid positions don’t yet exist), the folks from the institution you mentioned have nothing to do with Obama. I have no reason to think that you will take my word for it, as opposed to whomever you got your erroneous information from, but it is up to you to be either well informed and reasonable, or to believe all the bigoted lies and fabrications, and live in a cloud of bitterness and phobia. I will just say that if you care at all about coming off as a smart, reasonable person, it would help you out to seek and accept only the truth.

You mentioned college — clearly you have something against education, which is your problem, not ours. The apparent fact that you have such incredible disdain for learning is only a reflection of your shortcomings. You might make all the money you need for the rest of your life, but have you enjoyed yourself in the process? It doesn’t appear that you enjoy anything — nor do you have a clue what kind of richness a decent education can bring. Just because you have spent your life toiling at a dead-end, mindless job doesn’t give you license to denigrate those who choose to do something MEANINGFUL with their lives (btw, people who work in psychology make PLENTY of money — one needs a graduate degree to be licensed, surely, but that is true of most subject of study (do you know what a graduate degree is?), but nobody is asking YOU to pay their student loans, or fund the scholarships which are available to anyone who makes an effort.

In the end, when you are elderly and frail and unable to work, it will be you eating your words (if you remember the nonsense you spewed here) when you have to rely on Medicaid to continue taking your life-saving medicine, or the social security that, unless you are rich (I know you are not, you wouldn’t feel the need to spew your hate on liberal websites that are way over your head if you were), you will certainly need to fill the gap when your life savings start to run out and you have nothing left with which to fill the refrigerator. Just saying, since you took the time to insult the fine people on this website.
