The Last Debate
Some thoughts about the third and final presidential debate:
It was a long day for me, but I don’t ever think I’ve ever been drowsy at a debate, and I was tonight. It was boring.
Was anyone else tired of hearing about Joe the Plumber?
Obama was his usual cool self. Again, it gave people the perception that he can be presidential. Whether you agree with him or not, he did have the temperament to be Commander in Chief. Doesn’t mean he would be good at it, but in politics, perception is what matters and I can perceive the guy as President.
McCain was better, than in past debates and had some good jabs. However, he needed to basically make Obama loose his cool and he couldn’t do that. I wish he would have laid off the whole Ayers and ACORN mess. He also didn’t look presidential. Being that I support him, I know he could do the job, but you also need some presence, and well, the good Senator doesn’t have that. Which means people won’t trust him with the job.
Even though I don’t agree with the guy, Obama did a better job. It’s not that McCain crashed and burned, but presentation does matter, and McCain didn’t come off as presidential and he also wasn’t able to throw Obama off his game. Good show, John, but not good enough.
