Nothing new in that debate, I think the questions were well filtered.

Obama is a better speaker and the media has showed much bias in his favor.

In all fairness he probably did a better job at answering some of the questions, so I will vote for McCain, better the Devil we know! ( No pun intended) :devil:.

That debate sucked. Not one of those question would a normal person ask. Like a 45 year old women is worried about what is going on in Pakistan? McCain needed to win it and he just didn't get the job done once again. Next debate I bet all gloves are off, these two really wanted to go after one another and Tom who looks like Mr.Botox kept fighting them over it. It's their debate being run by their rules so they should be able to change them!

*yawwwn* After the first 45 min I found Star Trek reruns a better use of my time. They have stated their positions, that doesn't change. I'd say McCain wasn't as sharp.....not that Obama is sharp!

No one else thought this was unnecessarily disrespectful of a fellow U.S. Senator in a nationally televised Presidential debate & probably cost John McCain some independent votes? (I've seen this clip rebroadcast a number of times on every network including Fox News)

The members of the audience were all undecided voters. Vetted to weed out those that were workers for one side or the other. All submitted written questions ahead of time. The moderator then selected the questions to be asked from this pool of questions. This was done to avoid duplicate questions. The actual undecided voter got to ask their own question. All this was suggested and agreed to by both candidates months ago. All these debates are well scripted. This one primarily by McCain because he normally does well in town hall type debates.

"That One" won

But both need to say something they have not said hundreds of times already. Mccain made a brave move, he said "That One".

It's pretty tough for either one to say something new. They both speak all day....every day on the stump so you can't fault either for repeating himself. Almost unavoidable.

I thought the comment "that one" was disrespectful and very unpresidential. He acted the same way in the debate at the Regan library laying in his chair feet extended out the other side and had that stupid a** smug look on his face that we see all the time from Bush. I thought he was unpresidential then and I think he is still unpresidential now.

Boring debate. Not because there weren't any fireworks, I don't really expect that, but because the format was so stilted and McCain again let many counter points go unsaid. McCain was better tonight on economy and domestic stuff than last time, but it wasn't enough to overcome Obama's performance on that score. And McCain seemed to be phoning in the foreign policy last night. I'm not sure what happened there. I think he was too scattershot in his answers, came off a weaker than the first debate. Obama didn't bring anything new to his performance or answers. Same as last time. I don't think much of his plans, but he's better at weaving his answers into a couple of core themes than McCain and it is serving him well.

I'd rate it a 55/45 win for Obama on performance. 51/49 on substance, favor Obama (I like McCain's proposals a lot more, but to an indy my guess is it was a wash, with Obama benefiting by the tie). Slight Obama win. Doesn't speak very well for Obama, but he doesn't need to do any better at this point give the benefit of events he's receiving. McCain lost a big opportunity and it just puts that much more pressure on the last debate and the campaign to perform perfectly over the last few weeks. He can still turn it around, but the chances to make it happen are passing by each day.
