McCain, Obama get tough, personal in final debate


news.yahoo.com

"One hundred percent, John, of your ads, 100 percent of them have been negative," Obama shot back in an uncommonly personal debate less than three weeks from Election Day.

"It's not true," McCain retorted.

"It is true," said Obama, seeking the last word.

McCain is currently running all negative ads, according to a study by the University of Wisconsin-Madison. But he has run a number of positive ads during the campaign.

McCain did not score a knockout in my opinion.

His best line is "If you want to run against George Bush you should've run 4 years ago"...but that was not enough in my opinion!!

McCain looked old to me... he was trembling throughout the entire debate and seemed confused at time and not too articulate!

He appeared to me as an angry small man who believes he is entitled to the presidency.

"I'm proud of the people who comes to my rallies" said John McCain. Puhleeeeze!

Well, John spent more time in a P.O.W. camp than Obama has in the senate. In my opinion, that DOES make him MORE entitled to be president.

So being imprisoned makes you entitled to be president??? Get real!

Being a prisoner of war entitles you to be president?? Is that your position??
I don't think you are serious??

I think not...I think you need to provide solutions for the working men and women of the US.

Let's get our heads out of the clouds and feet planted firmly on the ground.
We need to assure the public that our government will support the middle class in our pursuit of the american dream!

Your argument is that having no neural stimulation for several years helps qualify one to be president?

okay.

Come on guys, that comment about McCain speading more time being tourtured *snip* then BO has spent in the senate is only bringing to light the COMPLETE inexpereince that BO has.

Now, on the debate....

Pathetic...
Not as bad as the second one...

But terrible none the less...

McCain was pulling his punches, waiting until BO brought up the issue that BO is good friends with terrorists.

McCain looks weak, he has no fight left in him, no fire in his belly, no passion in his voice...

BO dodged every question thrown at him. Refusing to answer some questions...

Then BO and McCain took turns on who could propose a policy that was further to the left... it was a clsoe battle as each advocated a continued move towards the USSA....

The United Socialist States of America...


20 days until we know who gets to sack the country next...

well they talked about healthcare in this debate, no real details again, but there is one question that i wished mccain would have asked obama. obama says that if you already have health insurance from your employer, you can keep it. I myself get insurance for free from my employer so does this mean that i wont have to pay anything at all for the "government insurance" that obama is pushing?

John has put his life on the line for this country, and almost lost it, Obama has not. I have relatives in Chicago that were pro Obama for the senate, after they got him as senator, they found out what he really is....a crook. They tell me that he is so tied into the mob that it is pathetic and they don't know why the media hasn't jumped all over it. Obama tells people what they want to hear, that's all, he will not deliver.

I just think its funny how SO many people put stock into howebad a president "was" and good another one "can be" when its freaking congress who does everything!! Do people realize its WHO THEY PUT IN CONGRESS AND THE SENATE who affects what goes on in this country? The president has no real power.

Come on, do folks really think Bush invaded Iraq LOL? How gave him the authority to do so? The president doesnt have the power folks. Wake up.

Whoa, let's take that language elsewhere. That was completely disrespectful.

Yeah apparently that was his zinger! heh.

That would have been a powerful and impressive retort if it was actually validated by is voting record. Unfortunately for McCain the other zinger "but you have voted in line with Bush 90% of the time" resonates much closer to the truth of things.

I was hoping Obama was going to return with:

"Okay fine McCain, you're not Bush. You are just 90% Bush".

It seems like most media outlets are 'calling' (though I'm not really sure how one wins a debate) it for Obama.

I'd have to agree that Obama performed the best...though he seemed mediocre, in my humble opinion. Ah well. This election is nearly sealed anyways, so I really don't think this debate could've changed anything unless drastic rhetoric had been undertaken by one campaign or the other.

Actually, such 'experience' would tend to make one mentally unstable, and is in no way a qualification for leader of the free world. Do you really think that McCain can separate his treatment as a POW from how he deals with SE Asia?

IMO, McCain did his best job yet, but Obama bested him again. Obama is just much smoother, better spoken, seemingly more self confident and well versed. I never understood how McCain came out of the R party in the first place. Reminds me of Kerry, seemingly chosen in order to lose. Nah, elections couldn’t be that manipulated could they?

If only the people had the priviledge of having a third party candidate attend the debates, both Dem and Repub candidates could be rightfully put in their places for all to see - too bad. Too bad for our country.

We see the relentless stupidity of the masses bitch about the "other side" while we've had Democratic and Republican Presidents and Congresses - each thrown out of power - over and over - elected and re-elected in a vicious cycle.

Time for real change, but of course it won't happen because of the stranglehold on the political system by the Dems and Repubs.

The old saying "you reap what you sow" is shamefully appropriate. Call it the basic nature of God's justice. Amen.

Oh yeah, especially when he lied about being associated with ACORN and never denied giving the $800,000 and lying about what it was allocated for!

Seriously though, if McCain had been caught in a lie like that, the media would be all over it. Especially considering the voter fraud.

Well, North Vietnam is not a huge player in world affairs and I am sure that he has no love for them, but he is aware of the consequences of putting people in war. He understands how cruel people can be, and I think he can better assess situations where peoples lives are on the line and better determine if the gain out weighs the potential loss.

I agree that Obama is smooth talker, self confident and carries himself well, but he just says what the people want to hear. He just doesn't have the experience and I don't trust him.
