Skip to comments.PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE #2 LIVE THREAD
Posted on 10/07/2008 2:01:24 PM PDT by TornadoAlley3
While the two presidential candidates, Senators John McCain and Barack Obama, prepare for their second debate on Oct. 7 at Belmont University in Nashville, Tom Brokaw gets to sift through questions submitted by you. In addition to queries from a group randomly selected by the Gallup organization, Brokaw will be fielding questions submitted online at mydebates.org, the site created by the Commission on Presidential Debates and Myspace. The focus of the town hall-style debate will be domestic and foreign policy, Brokaw's specialties.
“Troll has been here 5 years longer than you with all due respect.”
That one is boring more the most. McCain is the beneficiary but I don’t know if the margin of victory will be significant.
I can’t wait to get back to Ayers.
McCain, tell Obama that we have not be attacked in 6 years!!! We have eliminated many of thouse who hate us. Obama you are WEAK and no leader!
However, it appears that McCain is more directly answering most of the questions. Obama hasn't. Obama jumps around and rarely gives a direct response. Even to Brokow's question about fixing SS and Medicare in two years...he said he hoped to do so, perhaps, in his first term, (lol) but he never said that he would focus on it. He just went off on some tangent.
I’ll never understand why everyone lets him say that Iraq had nothing to do with the terrorist attacks. The whole “Bush Lied” crap is the biggest travesty in recent history.
Go peddle your comments elsewhere since you have been here such a short time.
“I dont remember the 1996 debates, but other than that, I think youre right”
Amnesia can be a blessing.
Obama is an idiot.
Healthcare is not a “right”.
McCain was correct.
Another 22259 stopwatch answer by obowelmovement.
and Osama is now saying they should save money by no wars, and hand that money out at home to his constituents!
Not your imagination...he’s done that a couple of times to attack McCain. Why isn’t McCain fighting back?
But only if YOU think it's warranted.
“Children are cheap to insure!”
“Tell that to my old insurance carrier when my first daughter was born... 4 weeks in the NICU, then the following winter, monthly RSV preventive at $1200 a pop.... “
There are extraordinary circumstances but by and large the average child is very inexpensive to insure.
you forgot to mention one that hangs out with terrorists.
>>>But I hope youre right and that he is appealing to moderates.<<<
Obama has swayed millions of moderates with his brand of BS - hope, change and no specifics. It may be too late
to appeal to moderates with the cool, calm, collected
Not a foaming at the mouth attack - but a more rapier like attack - quick jabs to the point....with a smile.
As usual Obama attacks Iraq for having a surplus, he will destroy Iraq.
‘so if I quit my job and move into momâs basement, I should get free gubmint healthcare?!?!’
That is your right, according to Barry.
