Presidential Debate; Give Me A Break
What I wanted to know was how each would establish dialogue with foreign countries. How would they end the war in Iraq? What exactly would they do about Afghanistan? What I got was McCain with an attitude. The rest of the world be dammed, because he didn’t trust a single leader in a single country. While on the other hand, Obama wanted to extend a hand but was not specific enough on how.
Another thing that pissed me off was, McCain repeatedly saying “Obama doesn’t understand.” Did he think everyone that was listening and watching was deaf and dumb? I heard you McCain. And by the way, that’s your opinion and not mine. This was supposed to be a debate (to discuss or argue points formally) not a personal war. But I guess since McCain didn’t go to college, he didn’t have any experience in debating. If I wanted to get ugly, Obama did go to law school which is where one actually learns how to debate an issue.
But let’s get back to the debate. Obama did give a few specifics (on middle class). McCain kept harping on his military experience. Well, his military experience does not apply to saving my behind economically. It will not reemploy all those who have lost their jobs. It won’t put a roof over the heads of those who have no place to call home. So McCain knows how to fight a war, but he doesn’t seem to “understand” the war is not the first concern of the homeless, jobless and the hungry.
I hope the next debate provides more insightful information on how the candidates are going to fix the “hell hole” this country is in. Tell me, how and when, this country stops rescuing the rest of the world as we die slowly, economically and emotionally. I want a real debate, not another neighborhood fight.
