I got a glimpse of it while I was making something to eat ._. Long enough to stare at the tv in somewhat disbelief as McCain said one thing, then turned right around and said something different after Obama said something >_>

I prefer Obama's broader view and approach to foreign affairs in comparison to McCain's idea of labeling everyone as enemies.

I liked how Obama mentioning the America's view from other nations just couple minutes ago. McCain just keeps repeating "Senator Obama lacks inexperience", "Senator Obama is wrong" etc etc.

Enough with "I will" 's McCain, this ain't your country, it's OURS.

Yet time and time again Obama had proven further down the road that, in the end, he was right after all? I recall him mentioning about 20-30 minutes an issue that even McCain's own advisers had eventually agreed with Obama about. But hey. What does McCain care? HES A WAR HERO. HA HA.


._. Sometimes I feel thats his whole reason why Obama isnt suitable and he should get presidency lolz, just the things he says sometimes.


/facepalm

also the whole Russian question pissed me off.
McCain and Barack agree that a nuclear holocaust should be avoided at all costs,and McCain basically calls Obamas plan for talks as stupid.
He's at least thought of a solution.
McCain just repeats how its bad and should be avoided.
well duh.
if you can give me at least some sort of solution to this,then fine.
but i have heard nothing on how he plans to stop them.
the whole key is talks.
none of that "legitimatizing" crap.
i doubt Obama plans to use a talk to just say,"hey russia,stop it"
we can do other things then just talk.
negotiations,intimidations,etc
im not as politically smart as those who are here,
but i think Obamas plan makes sense.

im watching commentary,and it seems like everyones bashing Barack @___@
i thought alot of what he said made sense.
i realize that fact that he may be "naive and new" but theres no better way to learn more then by becoming the president.
i think he has a good potential to be better /=

He does, but.. meh. A lot of people are too deadset in their ways to realize that what we have now is ruining us and we desperately need change. Ive even read in places about people discussing that if Obama did succeed in becoming president, that no doubt there would be plots in areas of assassination.. which.. is really just plain sad. Come on humanity. Come. On. Give me a freaking break.

Obama utterly crushed McCain, as I expected.

Seriously, the **** is wrong with McCain? A spending freeze?! Obama's hatchet analogy was hitting the nail right on the head.

Too bad debates mean nothing in the end..... Kerry raped Bush in the 2004 debates, but look how that turned out.

lol i don't even care about politics anymore eh?
and why is it that everybody i know, except for the people in my Rotc class agree that Obama Rocks, and Mc.Cain is a total idiot?

Bleh.. I can't really take either of them seriously. Once they get into the white house, i don't see much changing..

Either way they'll have a lot on their plates to deal with...I don't really see either of them accomplishing much.

Most People just expect everything to change "for the better" when someone new comes into the Commander-in-Chief. But its been proved to not happen remember who we had before Bush..no? Me neither =p Jk but it goes to show. Just because someone new is in charge, don't think things are going to change drastically. There's more positions in the government besides President.

That's how America is now. The lobby groups and military contractors make the decisions, and the president gets the blame. The president's been reduced to a glorified salesperson for change who leaves the final implementation in the hands of corrupt, back alley bureaucrats.

Actually America isn't any worse then any other country in my opinion, But like I said people just like to look at the negatives, and ignore everything else eh?

But yeah President's are basically the queen lol

Not an American, but American politics is interesting to follow. Obama is a pretty smooth talker, I suppose it'll be great if he really does follow through with everything he's promised to do. McCain seemed like a respectable figure, until he chose that Palin woman as his running mate .
