    That was a strong answer.

    Probably the strongest from either of them on foreign policy.

    Eerie sort of 1960 missile gap flashback there - Obama outflanks the veteran on the right.

    Gee, John... Iowa KNOWS you don't like ethanol - that's a big reason they don't like you.

    Guess what they grow an awful lot of in rural Indiana?

    Obama is doing a good job needling him.

    Obama is better on the response than he is leading off...  He's a better counterpuncher.

    Let's see if lays the first glove here...

    Yet, here we are....

  • Look, you simply cannot look at the "economy" as some sort of walled off boundaried thing... and I'd remind you that it wasn't 8 years - it was closer to 6.

    Was the Clinton administration ultimately a positive for the economy?

    Absolutely.

    But there was a lot of rot there, too.  More good than bad, most assuredly - but they rushed into plenty of bad that we're paying for today, too.

    No one is perfect - but there were plenty of Democrats, Dick Gephardt for one, who wanted a more careful approach to NAFTA and global trade.  

    Much of the deregulatory mess that is causing today's problem is rooted in policy the Clinton administration supported:  Gramm-Leach chief among them.

    I understand compromises need to sometimes be made - but there were substantive issues that were not compromise, but rather -- policies the Clinton administration supported.

    I'm not trashing Bill Clinton and the "Clinton economy" -- but let's not pretend he and IT walked on water, either.

  • You mean, like helping ram through Gramm-Leach-Bliley?

    Act like an ass, get called out as an ass.

    Democrat or Republican, I don't care.

    Perhaps the media would stop being so mean to John McCain if he were to stop acting like an addled meth addict; frenetic activity with little point to it all, complete inability to be honest, and general dickishness.

    He can go back to being honorable hero John McCain, bestest of a bad party, on 11/4 -- until then, he's reaping what he's sown and I don't care how hard he falls.... because he's the doofus who decided to climb on the roof in the first place.

    Hey, I've said for years that absent his Presidency, I suspect I would have had one hell of a good time tying one on with Dubya.

    That's all immaterial to an election that decides the course of our nation.
