Who could show teh skills of being the better manager and decision maker under stress.
The main turning point for me was that McCain could not and would not prioritize his agenda items. To him everything was number one. That’s a sign of a bad manager. Just because you assign priorities doesn’t mean you can do them all at the same time, but without knowing which takes priority, you’re out of control.
Obama had no problem answering the question.

The same issue was evident on cutting expenditures. Across the board simply will not due. It’s actually OK to say you’re still considering which items will need to be cut, based on how things shake out in these crazy times. Obama didn’t go into much detail about what he’d cut, but time was limited and he did say it would be targeted depending on where it had the most effect or was the fairest.

Who won? Obama, by a mile.

I guess that puts McCain to continue carrying on the same old failed Bush policies. I do not think either candidate will be able to clean up the Bush mess that has been created. For me my vote is for Obama as he has a timetable for withdrawing from Iraq, which still is an important issue for me.

The answer to that is really quite simple, America has lost. If these two are the best the country has to offer we are in deep trouble.

They are both professioanl panderers. They both are promising everyone everything. Niether has a clue on what to do about anything.

I’ll be writing in Mitt Romney.

He did not choose to put a priority on the issues and just said we as americans can get all 3 done at the same time with the right people. His plan for Health will keep companies honest by giving us a choice on who handles our issues. Creating jobs something that we really need can be done by us becoming energy independant from countries who don’t like us anyway. Did Obama really say he would go into Pakistan to get Bin liden with or without their help. How does he plan on doing that? Pull the troops from Iraq like he promised and put them into another country. If we do not start listening to other sources of information that are non partisan. IE: FOX then he is going to steal the votes and win. He has more money because he will not devulge his campaign resources. WHY?? ACCorn HUM. WE need a real leader now not one who pretends to be one or wishes he was one. SOmeone who has been there and knows how to get us back on track. I will feel alot safer if McCain is elected. If Obama is,I am seriously thinking of moving to Alaska. Maybe I can join Todd and sequester Alaska away from the US.

Now he finally admits to believing the earth is flat. 😉

What a joke of a name. I can’t follow Sidney anywhere. Sidney looked haggard and for all the hype about town hall meetings, Sidney looked like a school girl on the playground.

No way no how on Sidney. I’m voting for Obama, not Sidney!

I respect John MaCain for his military experiences but he is just a tired OLD man and he needs to retire.

Yes… obama wins… for dodging every single question like a true politician… yes real “Change” from the status quo.
