    National Review Online, on the Debate:

    We have a disaster here — which is what you should expect when you delegate a non-conservative to make the conservative (nay, the American) case [...]

    Great. Memo to McCain Campaign: Someone is either a terrorist sympathizer or he isn't; someone is either disqualified as a terrorist sympathizer or he's qualified for public office. You helped portray Obama as a clealy qualified presidential candidate who would fight terrorists.

    If that's what the public thinks, good luck trying to win this thing.

    With due respect, I think tonight was a disaster for our side. I'm dumbfounded that no one else seems to think so. Obama did everything he needed to do, McCain did nothing he needed to do. What am I missing?

    I don't think this was the place to go after Ayers unless there was a question on it. But the Ayers story is growing every day. Today CNN actual did a pretty good piece on it. Look for more every day until November 4th.

    So you've given up trying to win on the issues.

    I understand. You belong to a party who's ideas are unpopular, a party who elected George W. Bush not just once, but twice.

    Obama is winning on the issues.


    Enjoy the implosion of the GOP.

    The bottom line is that the Ayers thing isn't going to change anything. Almost everyone has friends that have done things that they don't condone or who have opinions that they don't agree with, so it's not likely that saying "Hey Obama is friends with this guy" is going to make a huge difference. The polls are still sliding away from McCain and it will take a lot more than Ayers to turn them the other way.

    You are missing those blinders that many partisans are wearing, RD.

    What little I saw of the debate suggested to me that Obama was making McCain look pretty weak.

    Not surprising really. Obama is a man of words and ideas, McCain is a old soldier.

    In a test of extemporaneous wits, McCain is simply outclassed.

    First of all I am an Independent. I've only voted twice: Once for Carter once for Bush 43.

    My problem with Obama are the issues as well as character.

    Obama will raise taxes and nationalize health insurance. I disagree with both these positions.

    Obama will beholden to teachers unions which means the status quo in education will continue.

    Obama will not drill or develop nuclear energy so we will continue our dependence on foreign oil.

    As for his character I do not trust him.

    As for the Ayers issue it is important to know if Obama supports Ayers far left educational ideas since he was hired by Ayers to Chair the Annenberg Project.

    You know the above is a very good post.

    You clearly explain why you are a McCain supporter without having to spew a load of partisan nonsense.

    You support McCain because you don't like Obama's policy proposals and you have progblems with his character, too.

    You don't like those proposals because you think they won't work.

    Now that is, in my opinion, a perfectly sound reason to vote for McCain.

    I disagree with you assessments about Obama's policies, but not with the logic of your position.

    You're my kind of voter, sport.

    You look at the issues and ignore the partisan mudslinging nonsense.

    Good for you, PB.

    It's the issues that matter.
