    TPM's on it --

    They're gonna have the video shortly - say it's difficult to tell, but definitely open for interpretation.

    Frankly, McCain can act like a sore loser all he wants.  I couldn't care less whether he's sore or not, so long as he's the loser.

    Obama.... by a lot.

    I didn't think that was close - I thought Obama came off much stronger.  Hey - perhaps I'm overly influenced by the CNN insta-tracker, but I thought Obama won this one easily.

    McCain didn't so much lose (though I thought he was off, even for grumpy John) - Obama was just flat out better.

    This was a very plus debate for Obama.  He's never gonna be Bill Clinton, but he doesn't need to be.

    Obama.

    By a mile.

    Not close at all.

    Going back to the primaries, I've never felt Obama did better in a debate than he did in this one.

    I think he's winning this easily.

    I was mildly surprised to see the debate 1 snap polls - I thought Obama won, but that it was closer.

    This time?

    I'll be shocked if Obama doesn't win by better than 2 to 1.

    That's the new friendly McCain - the grumpy McCain would have that thing.

    9:42 PM ... Exactly. A Medicare Closing Commission.

    I thought the first debate was closer to a toss-up, but I'm not seeing this one as close at all.

    McCain looks wobbly, Obama looks strong.

    McCain is desperate and pleading, Obama is decisive and strong.

    insta-tracker on the bottom of the screen is crap, but man...

    Mccain is dying, Obama is rocking.

  • comment on a post Jonathan's Debate Thread over 5 years ago

    If this was a boxing match, I'd say Obama is almost toying with him.

    jab jab jab jab

    Just waiting for McCain to get pissed, over commit, and trying throwing a roundhouse.

    Who knows.

    Honestly, I don't think it's necessarily a matter of McCain having a bad economic policy; it's that he has NO economic policy.

    His health care plan is off-the-rack AEI nonsense, meaningless piffle - present only because one has to "have" a health care plan.

    McCain doesn't give a crap about the economy - he'd happily turn the economy over to folks like Gramm.

    Obama is needling the shit out of McCain.

    Obama has really come out strong.  He's hit McCain, but hasn't hit him dirty.

  • comment on a post Michigan over? over 5 years ago

    Perhaps McCain wishes to devote more time and resources to cutting Iowa to a 10 pt margin?

    The strategy out of camp McCain has been stunningly bad...

    What's next -- he's going to California?

  • Neither Reagan nor Bush were ever THIS vapid - there's a difference between platitudes, cliches, and ideological parroting, and not even being able to string together platitudes, cliches, and parrot ideological talking points.

  • This isn't American Idol where we can all feel bad for the runner-up, this is heartbeat away from leader of the free world.

    Had Sarah Palin run in the GOP primary -- hell, in the Constitution Party primary -- she'd never had made it past the first state.

    A Presidential candidate has a greater responsibility than simply selecting a running mate that "helps the ticket" - I refuse to feel sorry for the man that made this awful mistake nor the woman who refuses to acknowledge she IS a mistake on the ticket.

    Breathtaking, hilarious, and frightening - all rolled into one.

    This isn't Quayle territory or Stockdale territory - it's something entirely new.   It's as if you took the vapid cupie dollness of Quayle and paired with the Stockdale inability to discuss any policy issue publicly.

    I mean, at this point, it's Eagleton territory without being dropped.
