I was stunned when Barry launched into the big lie last night about the crisis created by the democrats was actually the ‘final verdict in a failed 8 year economic policy of Bush’ and McCain just let him repeat that BS over and over.
Why be stunned? Good grief the GOP has let the DEM's lead both house since about mid 1995. Are some just now realizing the fact? McCain is more DEM leaning than GOP much like the Current Smirking Chimp. You will never see change by supporting the same politicians who deliver to the DEMs year after year.
My one thought as McCain left several opportunities on the table was one of timing. There’ll be other chances closer to the election to make some especially strong points and perhaps these were discussed during preparation and the issue of timing was discussed. After all the two were arguing about the difference between strategy and tactics but not one word was said about the importance of operational art which includes concepts such as timing.
For the life of me, I don’t know why McCain didn’t rattle off the many times that he and Bush warned about the current financial crisis. And Obama wrote a letter! Give me a break. Perhaps if he had spent more than 147 days in the senate, he might have heard one of the warnings.
I´m in Chile, and saw that comment on the local news. Obama’s comment about a failed 8 years of economy was about it for coverage of the debate. John McCain said something, but I can’t remember what it was, so if I can’t remember it, imagine the Chilean population. All they got from it was, “Obamana (or whatever his name is) agrees with me in my hatred for Bush. If the US doesn’t elect him, it’s because they’re racist.” They also stated that Obama won the debate. Come on McCain! Don’t let him get away with that!
