PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE #2 LIVE THREAD
10/07/08

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.

Obama: seeing problems before they happen is what we must do...

Isn't that what the CIA was trying to do with Hussein (the other one) in Iraq? How can we see future problems if we don't trust, and publicly flog our intelligence agencies?

“watching on CNN, it doesn’t seem that McCain is connecting with the “uncommitted Ohio voters”. I am a bit worried - really wanted McCain to stick to to BHO.”

I was worried about that too, but then I wondered—how did they pick these “uncommitted” voters. I’m sure CNN did its best to find people sympathetic to Obama.

And no, he won't get them. There's a lot of us McCarthy's out there who can put up a good fight when needed.

Why on earth does McCain need to hit a home run? You are allowing the dems and the media to set the standards. How about this: any inexperienced upstart who want to be commander in chief must hit a grand slam home run before he can even be taken seriously.

Obama sounds totally lost on the Russia cold war question.

And completely bloviated on a simple yes or no question.

McCain: Maybe :) .... good witty answer.

You don’t have to repeatedly explain yourself if you base your belief system on facts. That isn’t the case with 0bama - he has to explain “no, no, what I meant by that lie was...”

He hasn’t really been good at anything, has he? Outside of the cult of personality, I mean.
