The FINAL Presidential Debate

So, how did you think it turned out?

Who watched it?

Who was sick about hearing about Joe the Plumber?

Here's my two cents...

I thought McCain was rather scattershot on his topics, usually changing any question asked to a new topic, or avoiding the answers to questions (especially health care...his answer was essentially that people should work out and diet more, and then he attacked Obama)
I thought the question of abortion was unnecessary, but it did give Obama a chance to defend against some claims made by McCain about partial birth abortion and the like.
McCain did seem to be in more of a fighting mood, but it seemed to make him more flustered (calling Obama "Senator Government", for example)
I thought McCain was very repetitive, bringing up this guy "Joe the Plumber" in almost every question. McCain seemed to want to hammer home his economic plan for small business owners, but kind of ignored everyone else.
Obama's stances on education, healthcare, and spending (a scalpel instead of McCain's hatchet) were to me, top of the line answers.

I thought this was the most interesting debate, and it had some very good questions.
My biggest regret about it is that the question about the running mates was spent with both sides praising their opponent's VP's instead of saying why they wouldn't be able to lead...

What do you think??

Cool

Marvman sees a vision....

"An African American Man sleeping in Abe Lincoln's bedroom."

Does that answer yer question?

Its almost surefire who's going to win the election.

Honestly have not paid much attention to the debates,
but it seems like the road is about to come to an end for one
Navy Pilot....

McPain, and his bug eyed Parrot, Pali.

So yep.

The world will come to an end,
and Barag Ohara, must hire ALOT of SS agents as
he will be targeted alot domesticaly....

Rockn.

"Senator Government" Lol I think it was a great Debate, And yeah Mccain changed the subject alot. Much like Sarah Paladin. And Mccain kept lying about Obama, And then Obama would correct him... Lol, And when they talked about people saying "Kill Him!" at Mccains rallies when Obamas name came up, Mccain is like 'I hear the same stuff at his rallies' XD Suuurrreee he has...

I'm more Republican then anything else but I don't like Mccain or Obama that much, really. I actually did kind of like Romney. I think Mccain & Romney would have made a good combination.

Or Romney and someone else..(I wouldn't have a clue who he would pick, though.)

I don't think a combination like that could ever make it to the end of the campaign and come out victorious though because people are too biased towards.. well, too many things.

During the debate I actually felt Obama was more repetitive. It drives me crazy how he repeats himself.. well, everywhere. Yeah, he's trying to get the message across.. but when you say it over and over again it's just plain annoying. He doesn't even re-phrase himself in some cases.. so he says the exact same words.. again and again.

P.S. you all should be more focused on Biden then anyone else, considering the magnitude of having a person of different color in the president seat.(I'm not racist or anything, i'm just stating a fact.) I'm not saying that anything is going to happen to him(Obama) but there is a lot bigger of a risk that something would happen to him then to Mccain.

On a totally random note, Obama was born on the same day as me lol, =O

Obama may have been repetitive but at least he answered all the questions and talked about his thoughts on the issues without flaming Mccain... and Btw people already tried killing Obama

McCain was again very bad. The Joe the Plumber is a republican plant. MSNBC has been talking about it today. He has ties to the republican campaign. McCain got busted.

MSNBC...LOL dont listen to anything they report. it is all flaud.

It was the better of the 3 debates. It looks like Obama is going to win the presidency...what a shame. I thought McCain did better though.

And the reason why McCain talked about small business's is because alot of them employ people. Including my mom and dad.
Taxes go up on small business, means less pay, less jobs and job cuts for workers.

and about the hatchet, we need one. take care of this crap. Then clean up with a scaple.
