Watched the debate. did not really find anything that great to see in it.
It was one of those where Obama finished mildly ahead on points, but not far enough ahead to call it a win. Therefore you got to call the whole thing a draw. I do not feel that anybody is really going to remember much about this debate and that it will effect people hardly at all.
Both candidates basically put their thoughts out there. Looking at the independent fact check site it would seem as if McCain stretched the truth more than Obama did, but that is to be expected.
Where McCain screwed up:
Did not look over at Obama but one time the whole hour and a half affair. He looked about as trollish as you would expect, and looked uncomfortable more than a little bit.
Where Obama screwed up:
Why oh why did Obama say that McCain was right so much? This is a campaign that will be won through misinformation and sound bites. The only thing I expect to come from this whole thing is the following video;
To an undecided (Read: Idiot) voter, having one candidate who says he has all the answers (McCain) and another who keeps pointing out how right the first guy was (Obama) makes deciding who to vote for an easy task.
This election is going to be won or lost by the bottom 20% of the population. So it’s time to start pandering to the idiot masses, and giving short & easy to follow answers, even if those answers are totally wrong. This is how you win a state full of morons (Ohio), and that is how to win this idiot nation.
Bottom Line: Both sides say they won, and in their own eyes, they did. The VP debate should be high entertainment, as Sarah Palin is probably going to get massacred by Biden, cause she’s a legit moron. I mean, seriously, she claims a vast wealth of foreign experience, but does not even have her passport? This next debate should be a lay up for the Democrats, but I’ve seen them screw up on easier tasks than this.
