I think Barack did a great job tonight and John kind of made himself look like the fool that he is.
to me he didnt kinda he did show the fool he is and has been . but most of all he still kept right on lieing like always. and im so sick of hearing about the braclet thing i mean is that the only person he has talked to sence the war? im glad obama said he had a braclet to. shows there are others who dont want there son or anyones son to die for nothing. i mean how stupid can you be acording to mcsame sence the ladys son got killed we have to keep letting others mothers sons get killed so she will feel better. i do feel bad for her and anyone who has lost a son or daughter in this war, but this is wrong to keep this sort of thing going like mccain is using this women and her son for his political gain.
i have cousins and real close realitives still over there who have had this stop lost crap of bush and mccain pulled on them and others like them who cant come home.yes obama won hands down in my view. GO OBAMA
Yes, Obama won. CNN and ABC both gave the debate to Obama. And tonight's topic was suppose to be McCain's strongest topic.
I think McCain looked like a much better leader tonight, regularly taking the lead and leaving Obama to have to begin his responses with "yeah, what he said" lol. But seriously, was it just me or did a lot of those questions start with McCain with an Obama follow-up? It was if they wanted to hear McCains experienced answer while Obama copied McCain's answers as he spoke... Obviously that isn't the case but it just came off that way.
My verdict was that McCain won it pretty handily, but I was very impressed with Obama. Especially because he somehow spoke for over a half hour (combined) having only said "Uhhh" a few times and never really pausing for long periods of time like he usually does without a teleprompter. I'll even go so far to say that after tonight's performance, he should ditch the teleprompter. His handlers obviously don't have faith in him, and I think they are wrong.
I feel that McCain won but Obama did well too but he did look frustrated lot. I wish that John would have meet Barack more on some issues. I felt that there was to much finger pointing and that the candidates to to compromise on more issues. As far as our soldiers dying for no reason that's just false the gave their lives for our freedom and to help Iraq achieve democracy too.
Both CNN and ABC have liberal bias views.
I thought McCain was remarkably strong and I applaud him for it. But, thank god, Obama shone.
hands down, obama won. everything that comes out of mccain's mouth is so full of lies.
I think McCain won although not handedly. He didn't stumbled with the exception of the Syrian president's name and he sounded like he knew what he was talking about, even if I disagree with him. Most of the foreign policy discussion went over my head anyways so I wouldn't be able to detect if and when he lied.
Obama was a little agitated and Mccain was just plain angry.
It was even.
Most surveys of independent or uncommitted voters are giving it about 60/40 to Obama. This year's election is a game of inches, and Obama was more productive in this first debate.
Personally, I liked McCain's Porky Pig impersonation when he tried to say , "Ahmadinejad". :biggrin1:
The viewers speak:

And the numbers released so far from the CBS poll of undecided debate-watchers: 39% said Obama won, 25% said McCain won, and 36% said it was a draw. Forty-six percent said their opinions of Obama went up, compared to only 31% who said the same about McCain. On the economy, 66% said Obama would make the right decisions, compared to 44% who said the same for McCain.
As well as CBS (the biggest lib outlet), NBC, NPR and MSNBC.
McCain looks as if he is ready for the old folks home. He looks confused and unaware of where he even is a lot of the time.
