Man, what can I say about this debate? The US is in a war we shouldn't be in with thousands of Americans dead, tens of thousands wounded, who knows
how many innocent Iraqis dead and trillions of dollars spent. Recession is here, depression a real possibility. Americans are losing their homes by
the millions with the peak of foreclosures not expected until the 3rd quarter at best. The dollar is at it's lowest point against other currencies in
decades. Unemployment is on the rise with most of the "new jobs" Bush claims he created are in the service industry such as fast foods, etc. The
middle class is shrinking and I don't mean by joining the ranks of the rich. Americans have less in savings since the Great Depression. The US has
the biggest deficit in history and we're spending $5000 per second in the Iraq war. Bush is giving the economy a stupid "stimulis" telling us to
buy US manufactured goods. Please tell me what is still produced here? Gas is heading towards $4 a gallon, diesel already there. Food is an average of
40% higher than just a year ago. Favorable views of the US abroad is at it's lowest in years even though the majority of the world was with us after
9/11. I coulld go on, but what's the point?
Bush is obviously the worst president ever with the possible exception of Hoover. What's scary is that McCain is essentially 4 more years of Bush
and he has the support he does. So here we are- ABC hosting a debate with the Democratic candidates in an election that potentially is the most
important in our history. And it's about lapel pins, sniper lies, minor associations with controversial figures, misspoken opinions- in short- BS.
Seemed to be lopsided as well with the most pointed attacks on Obama. What the h**l is wrong with ABC? Getting their talking points from Faux News? My
God people! This country is in real trouble and we're teetering on the edge of an abyss! And these 2 jokes calling themselves "reporters" pull this
crap! Shame on ABC. What a bunch of tools.
