Last night McCain was not even on the same playing field as Obama and, consequently, Obama wiped the floor with McCain. Between all of McCain's nervous fidgeting and squirrely mannerisms, it is clear that either McCain is not the brightest crayon in the box, he had to go to the bathroom, or he is just a terrible debater; however, two things are clear after listening to McCain's rhetoric, he has traveled to lots of countries and he wants to cut government spending. I couldn't believe how often he repeated those sentences during the debate. Cutting spending is an issue both candidates agree on, granted how they propose to cut spending is different but at least Obama can articulate what he proposes. As always, this is just my very humble opinion. :D After this first debate, as of the time I am posting this, Obama has pulled ahead of McCain in the polls. Now I don't want this blog to turn into a political dispute but feel free to post your thoughts if you so desire.
