Comments on: McCain, Obama nervous in last debate? Early gaffes… http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2008/10/15/mccain-obama-nervous-in-last-debate-early-gaffes/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: movie fan http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2008/10/15/mccain-obama-nervous-in-last-debate-early-gaffes/comment-page-1/#comment-382118 Sat, 18 Oct 2008 00:48:43 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/trail08/2008/10/15/mccain-obama-nervous-in-last-debate-early-gaffes/#comment-382118 the fact that anyone is praising McCain for his performance in the third debate proves that he and Palin have lowered people’s expectations down to nothing (don’t forget, the VP debates were a tie!)

He actually defended No Child Left Behind, Bush’s ultimate debacle to the middle class. He had a real chance to show how he was different from Bush and then he did that at the end. I don’t know if he was just rattled and defensive, or if he truly believes that was even a real program – it was a punchline to a campaign.

Only the unintelligent will think that he had a coherent plan in his 12th hour. Listening to him was a most disagreeable experience.

Obama showed himself to be sharp, focussed on issues of importance and eager to present excellent ideas that have been planned carefully. He had to fend off McCain’s trivial points. Yet, he still explained and outlined his outstanding ideas.

I am sick of hearing McCain’s attacks. CNN did research to find out who was giving truthful information and on most of the points, Obama was truthful and McCain was not.

McCain is offering nothing. Do you want 4 more years of Bush with a man who is angry and incoherent?

Obama has already demonstrated total command of the issues for the duration of the race. He spoke very solidly, as usual. McCain was fuming with rage because he was too slow to ever try to come up with a coherent, big-picture plan.

Obama will be one of the very greatest presidents the United States has ever had.
