what they need to do is have a debate on the laundry list of "issues", rather than the scripted sit in the chair while being seperately
interviewiewed like we saw last week. When it was on, at the house I was at, there was a living room full of enthusiastic folks truley interested in
the race, and half way through McCain's interview, half of the room was almost asleep, while the other half lost interest. Same with the interview
of Obama, although there was perhaps 50% more interest...but still people couldn't pay attention very long because it was so damned boring.
We need reall debates. We need John and Barack talking with one another. We need to see them debate the issues. Everyone is sick of pigs and
lipstick, and personality smears, and fox news along with Limbaugh, O'riley, Savage, Reagan, Beck and the rest of the corporate right wing media
hores lock step and file repeating the GOP talking points as though we are to stupid to recognise that it's political propaganda...we need to hear
how in the hell our future leader intends to clean up the mess that Bush and the neo-con Republicans have left us. Moreover, we need a population
that is aware that the electronic media is controlled by the upper elites and the right wing. We need a public who will read, do research, and dig
deeper. We need a public who will demand that our candidates discuss the issues rather than side step reality.
Less than two months left, and so far, no debates? Are you ok with this? We should be hopping mad and flooding out into the streets over this. And
we call America the becon of democracy, and yet we don't have real free debates before our election? Something is way wrong here folks.
