    Ha, McCain was all about eye contact tonight. When he looked at Obama and proclaimed, "Senator Obama, I am not President Bush," I smiled a bit. McCain still has a long way to go to earn my vote back, but tonight was a start. I'd say he's 2 for 3 in the debates. The first debate was a stalemate.

    I like Obama. And I hope he wins. However, I saw snippets of the debate (didn't get it down here), and there were a couple of times where Obama should have gone for the jugular and he didn't. Not in a nasty way, but in a way to get his point across. He needs to be more assertive, especially with a recession looming.

    People bag Jimmy Carter because they think he was ineffective. He wasn't ineffective, he got voted in during a recession. Same thing is gonna happen with Obama. he needs to get his head sorted...quickly...or he'll be a one-term president. And we know what happened after Carter. Up until the end of his term, one of the worst presidencies in American history - Ronnie Raygun....

    I detest Obama and I hope for my sake and the sake of the country that he loses...

    He is being exposed more and more for his socialist style wealth redistribution and his flat out lying about 'tax cuts'... Though many brain dead Obamabots will still go on style over substance, and fall in to his blank canvas trap where they pain whatever 'hope' they want onto him, whether it is trtuly to be attributed to Obama or not

    As for Carter... he was a MAJOR cause for the recession... he was ineffective, especially on foreign policy where he may have been the worst president in modern times

    McCain did very well in this debate... the only debate so far where I believe him to be the clear winner... could have still done better, but he still came out on top... I'd give him a solid B+ for the debate... Obama more like a C

    What lie about tax cuts, DD? The only lie I heard on that was from McCain.

    This was pretty funny:
