McCain seems off to a slow start.

And no “Uhhhhs..” from Obama (bummer).

I swear he is graying his hair.

So far I think B0 is coming across better, sad to say. Neither has made any errors it seems but 0 seems to be on offense and I am waiting for McCain to show some partisan zeal. Sounds like now he is talking about taxes being too high. This should be good.

They decided to let them debate the economy for a while first. For obvious reasons.

I think McCAin is getting BO angry. He knows his stuff. Been doing it long enough.

Yeah. Except that this is supposed to be a foreign policy debate. So far they have spent 20 minutes on the economy - which is to Obama’s advantage.

They justified this by saying that the economy is a national security issue.

Obama is outdoing McCain so far. I think we might need to prepare ourselves fro President Barack Hussien Obabmad for Kenya.

Despite his Ivy League eduation, Obama could easily be replaced by a tape recorder that constantly repeats, “McCain equals Bush.”

Agreed. At this point McCain seems to be trying to make sure he gets his talking points in but doesn’t necessarily seem to be “connecting” yet.

Nice to see that Comrade Obama, the poor man’s Al Sharpton, a man who has never produced a damned thing in his 45+ worthless years on this planet, is now an economist.

I swear, McCain was tortured in Vietnam by people to Obama’s right.

I think he (BO) learned his lesson from Saddleback.

He definitely has the ums and ahs held to a minimum.

Let’s just hope for a better second half. BO seems to be carrying the ball the most at this point.

McCain is laughing at this empty suit... tired old rhetoric from stalin. He is an empty suit... no answers... just soundbites with no meaning.

A lot of words, but neither seems to really be making any memorable statements or points so far.

And Lehrer needs to stop his cute little prompts here and there.

Somehow McCain seems to be caught off guard. Like he was expecting a Foreign Policy debate, but we’re having the economy debate.

Almost like a bait and switch.

I think you are correct, the O is getting irritated.

Also when the O speaks they seem to go to full screen. But with Mc they split the screen.

Good grief - another economy question. And Obama’s yapping about health care.

Hello? Foreign policy?
