Presidential Debate Live Blog II: The Revenge
6:30PM: Dammit, he meant Boeing tanker projects.
6:31PM: Obama: ”Sacrifices? Ummm, less shopping.”
6:33PM: Obama’s blowing it again.
Wait, was the airline oil tanker deal McCain sunk that one of the key Boeing contracts?
6:34PM: Obama: Sharing the burden – thank god. He finally got back on message.
6:36PM: In the first presidential debate McCain compared Obama’s refusal to admit that we’re winning in Iraq to the dogmatic nature of president Bush. He just compared his tax policy to president Hoover. Wait 30 more minutes and he’ll be comparing Obama’s health plan to Rasputin’s!
6:39PM: Why did the Straight Talk Express cross the road? To nail JELLO to the wall.
6:42PM: McCain is probably the first candidate in history to campaign on his lack of popularity.
6:43PM: ”MY FRIENDS” METER = 17
6:44PM: McCain: “We’re going to have to make sacrifices, we’re going to have to prioritize, things are going to be tough….our best days are ahead of us.”
It’s official, McCain just admitted that he’s pro-French!
6:47PM: We can’t nail Obama’s policies through JELLO, but we can drill here and drill now.
6:48PM: Tom B just asked the best question yet. Silicon VS Manhattan
6:50PM: Is health a commodity? No, but coffins are.
6:53PM: It’s official, Obama wants to insure that everyone gets mammograms.
6:54PM: Holy Crap! If Senator Obama finds out The Melon doesn’t provide health-coverage to our employees, we’re sunk!
6:55PM: “MY FRIENDS” METER = 20
6:57PM: Thank God, Obama says its a right to be heathy. I was getting worried about him.
6:59PM: Obama is finally debating. Only took him a full hour. It maybe too late to cut into McCain though
Obama also wants to make sure we don’t lose our maternity coverage. Does that mean healthcare plans are preventing you from getting pregnant or helping you get pregnant?
7:00PM: Could it be that we are now too poor to peacefully invade and occupy rouge nations?
7:03PM: Obama, please call for a NEW AGE NEW DEAL for AMERICA
7:07PM: McCain, “Iranian influence will increase in Iraq if we pull-out now.” The Iraqi’s have elected a pro-Iran Shia Prime Minister for Christ’s sake!.
If we leave Iraq, that’s a BIG bill we don’t have to pay. It’s all tied together.
Yeah but, to be honest, the 8-year quarantine Clinton imposed on Iraq that was periodically defined by sorties wasn’t cheap either.
McCain: “President Reagan, my hero.”
Someone explain why Reagan trumps God. please.
OHHHHHHHHHHHH! McCain said, “darn sure.” IT’S A PLOT TO BE CUTE!
McCain: “Al Qaeda would have reestablished a base in Iraq”. Al Qaeda didn’t have a base in Iraq before we invaded. Our invasion emboldened Al Qaeda in Iraq.
McCain thinks we should be careful to only send troops when they would improve the situation, that he has the expertise to know when that’s right. And yet he worked hard to send troops to Afghanistan and Iraq when our presence there clearly hasn’t improved the situation there.
7:11PM: ANNNNN. Teddy Roosevelt said “Walk softly” not “Talk Softly.”
7:12PM: McCain: Pursue Bin-Laden to the Gates of Hell, but stop short of Pakistan.
7:14PM: McCain: Don’t you dare follow-up with me motherfucker, I will bury you alive!
7:18PM: This War is endless, and almost pointless.
@Walker Lindley, “I’m not going to telegraph my punches” sounds an awful like “I’m erratic and dangerous.”
7:20PM: In the first debate, McCain seemed like he was preparing to receive a lifetime achievement award. Today, he seems like he could be president. Obama’s responses are too brief, to generic and too erratic. I don’t buy the theories of the pundits who feel that when you’re ahead, you abandon ideology.
7:22PM: Obama, “the resurgence of Russia” did Russia ever disappear?
McCain: We have to show Russia that this isn’t acceptable to invade Georgia. What will I do? INVADE THE LITTLE SHITS!
Obama: the resurgence of Russia is one of the issues we’ll have to deal with in the next Presidency.
Citizen Jen:((WHAT DOES THIS MEAN, Obama??? I thought Palin had it all under control!))
McCain goes a full half-hour without throwing a “my friends” out there
7:25PM: Love the Russian, hate the sinner.
7:27PM: Is anyone else under the impression that both McCain and Obama are simultaneously running for mayor of Jerusalem as a back-up?
7:29PM: The best way to deal with an angry marginalized state is to impose “the squeeze” on it.
7:30PM: Thank God, the last question.
7:31PM What don’t you know? How will you learn it?
Obama: My wife
7:33PM: What don’t you know? How will you learn it?
McCain: I lack the ability to predict the future. I also don’t know where several countries are on the map. I am also unaware of the unexpected. But when I was kid, i knew many people who were middle-class and who had to struggle for hope. Bottom line, I know how to steer a ship.
7:35PM: Whoo, Cindy McCain practically ducked that kiss from John
