    Post Presidential Debate 2 Discussion

    Well, let's get the ball rolling.

    Mccain was definitely the aggressor today, which is no surprise since he's been slipping in the polls. He was clearly comfortable in the town hall setting.

    Barrack played it cool, but got in a few punches including the infamous "Bomb Iran" song. I liked his JFK reference.

    Once again there was no clear winner, and I'm sure the polls will be mixed for the next few days. Anywho, I'll hand this thread off to rattler, capslock, and company ^^

    I am just now watching the replays, but I tend to agree. Just a bunch of stump speeches thrown in the guise of responding to questions. However, I'm interested in how the candidates react to each other, although nothing spectacular has come out yet.

    My question becomes:

    Who is McCain's real hero- FDR or Reagan? Maybe if I look at his extensive voting record...

    I still have 40 minutes to watch (another night!) But McCain did manage to goad Obama at least once, rather cleverly. I was surprised that Obama let his anger get the better of him. McCain says refers to "my friends" more often than his running mate says "maverick." There were a few points where Obama could have scored big, but then kept rambling. Apparently knowing when to shut up is not something that the candidates feel voters value in a President.

    My friends, it is interesting to think that the content of the presidential campaign is so vapid this time 'round that most of the spin I hear is bast on subtext and emotion as opposed to the debates at hand.

    My friends, I do feel that McCain completely pwnt(for lack of a better term) on the grounds that he quite literally has managed to steal the entire Democratic platform. Everything from 'change' to green jobs and healthcare and put the Republican twist on it. I commend him for that.

    My friends, Polls are putting Obama in a steady lead though. Once again, I'm a big D all the way, so, in an attempt to claim a non-biased position, there was no energy in the whole debate. Two years of campaigning have worn on these candidates, and it shows on both counts now that the last stretch approaches. Ultimately, Obama focused on the issues as much as he could, McCain on military service and his history in the armed forces.

    My friends, I continue to be thankful that I have yet to be truly sucked into politics. Fascinating stuff though.

    I should have said this in my first post, but I was surprised about McCain's plan to buy up housing. I didn't expect that.

    you just noticed this tonight? this is why alot of republicans dont like him.....

    as far as putting someone elses twist on stuff....Obama's speech on how he will deal with "Pokistan" if they dont take care of the terrorists themselves is pure Bush....

    not sure if this keeps going over Obama's head though but he keeps preaching on bills McCain voted against and such that go against what he says he is for......well one major thing McCain is against is pork spending and he has voted against alot of bills he would have been for if they werent loaded down with pork.....

    BTW every fact check places i have seen ALL say McCain was crying out that Fannie Mae and company needed regulation far before Obama........so Obama is full of crap on that point consistently.....all say that while McCain is for deregulation in most things he has wanted more regulatory oversight on these programs for a looooooong time....
