    Just more mudslinging, lies and evasions.

    The good news: there were 61 viewing this thread.
    The bad news: there were 56 watching the debate.

    An absolute snooze-fest. If I hear one more question about what the government is going to do to solve this or that problem, I think I'm going to explode. I think it's about time to vote Libertarian, or something.

    I watched for about five minutes and got disgusted. They are both big time duds. Both will lead us deeper into the hole. Both have health plans that are terrible. Both want to tax and spend us deeper into debt. Both want to blame the other while both were sitting U.S. senators as our economy was falling into the hole. Obama was there when both the Senate and the House had a majority of Democrats and yet nothing of any significance happened. Of course Obama blames Bush and McCain tries to distance himself from Bush. MaCain was a sitting senator while the Repulicans had a tremedeous advantage but he and they also did nothing of any significance. Will someone of substance and character step up to the plate? I doubt it.

    Well I dozed off, it was that boring . I thought the highlight of the evening was when Brokaw asked McCain who he would appoint as Secretary of Treasury, to which McCain responded "Well, it ain't gonna be you Tom."

    I find it quite compelling that Barak Hussein Obama is not being grilled over coming Supreme Court appointments that will affect the status of abortion, gun control and gay rights for generations.

    I think JSM might have slightly edged BHO, but not enough to make up ground. I kept thinking the whole time I watched "Is this the best these two parties can do?"

    I fell asleep during both POTUS debates. Not Biden/Palin. Much better debate so far than both POTUS debates combined.

    CNN reported that, interestingly, while people think Obama may have done better in focus groups, this same focus group of noncommitted likely voters said that if they were to vote today, they'd vote McCain 55-45.

    I didn't watch.

    Has any presidential candidate ever said anything meaningful in a debate that affected his presidency or that he carried out seriously (if he won)? I mean, what does it matter what they say? I think we can predict it.
