I didn’t think either man did well with their presentation. McCain stiff and stilted (needs to work on his anecdotes, and presenting them. Also needs a “new” pen), and Obama smirking and interrupting (got a little too bothered by McCain’s remarks). But I think they stuck to their scripts and got their message out. McCain: I have a lot of friends (who are old - Ted Kennedy?), I have flown to a lot of places around the world (makes him an expert on every place he’s touched down?), I AM A MAVERICK, I will clean up the Republican Party and Washington, I was right on the surge, Ear marks and Pork are EVIL and they make people evil, Financial crisis is an extension of evil people in Washington (and yeah, Wall Street), I will cut taxes so corporations will stay in US and create jobs . . . . Obama: I will cut taxes for 95% Americans, I don’t believe in trickle down economics, we need more regulation and oversight on Wall Street, the war in Iraq was a mistake and now we’re paying for it in Afghanistan, we need a new energy policy (we can’t drill our way out of our energy problems), I will invest in education, and infrastructure, I did a lot of things as a Senator (yeah yeah), I have good judgment as shown by my record . . . .
