Live Debate Blog, Debate #3

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kelly @ 6:30 pm

It’s time for the third debate! Rumor has it that John McCain is going to mention the name of William Ayers tonight. He’s probably going to lie about Obama’s tax plan too. But the question everyone wants to know but no one is asking is, will he find Mr. Puddles ? Find out the answer to all these questions tonight in the debate, and if you wish, feel free to join me for the debate, here at the Quill.

Here’s something to play with until the debate starts.

  1. Well we are underway. First question is on the economy, big surprise!

  2. McCain is repeating the idea of buying the home mortgages. He’s still not seeing where the money is going to come for this plan, or what any details are.

  3. I am watching on CNN because I actually like to see how the independent voters are responding. McCain did fairly well, but Obama did very well with the independent voters.

  4. That was weird, McCain was talking to Obama without looking at him. Now he’s fumbling about with his words, and he’s telling Obama what his plan is.

  5. It’s amazing watching these lines. Obama was talking bad about McCain an his lines were down. He’s talking about his tax cuts an the lines go up. People do NOT want to hear trash talk, they want to hear policy.

  6. I think the point here is how much does Joe the plumber make. Apparently he’s a pretty well to do plumber if he’s making more than a quarter of a million a year.

  7. McCain is misleading when he’s talking about taxes and business tax rates. Corporations are not paying that much in America, and this also ignores the fact that the highest private tax rate is significantly higher.

  8. I have to say that McCain seems to have his game on tonight. He’s doing better than in the previous two debates.

  9. McCain is talking in generalities but he’s scoring big with men right now.

  10. Barack is not doing well right now. McCain is in the game and Obama seems to be going through the motions. He’s making sense and stating facts but he’s not getting people’s attention.

  11. Obama hopefully will get tough on that old fart tonight

  12. McSame just keeps on bringing up the same (disputed by everyone)lies about Obama. Enough already….they are not true. McSame still cannot look into Obama’s eyes when he is addressing him…the sign of an untruthful person!

  13. Here it is the “say it to his face question.”

  14. Oh, BooHoo!

    Comment by Dianne Tudor — October 15, 2008 @ 7:27 pm | Reply

  15. Rather than say anything to Obama’s face he brings up John Lewis’ comments.

  16. Hello Dianne and 3rdStone.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 7:27 pm | Reply

  17. He still hasn’t said anything about William Ayers.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 7:28 pm | Reply

  18. How can McSame deny that his ads are negative???!!!They are.

    Comment by Dianne Tudor — October 15, 2008 @ 7:29 pm | Reply

  19. It is fascinating the difference between men and women in this one as far as the little lines on the screen go. Obama is doing better with women and McCain is doing better with men.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 7:29 pm | Reply

  20. To be fair Obama’s ads on immigration, health care and stem cell research aren’t completely true. Of course McCain’s not telling about the lies he’s telling.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 7:31 pm | Reply

  21. McCain talks over Obama and then snickers to himself all the time. It’s getting annoying.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 7:33 pm | Reply

  22. Did I just hear McCain say he’s proud of the people that come to his rallies? Is he saying that there’s nothing wrong with yelling kill him at a rally?

    McCain is just lying through his teeth right now!

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 7:35 pm | Reply

  23. McCain keeps interrupting Obama!

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 7:36 pm | Reply

  24. Ayers is out there finally!

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 7:37 pm | Reply

  25. McCain is desperate!! He only wants to accuse Obama of alliances that didn’t happen and not talk about policy differences.

    Comment by Dianne Tudor — October 15, 2008 @ 7:40 pm | Reply

  26. In the end I think that Obama did better in that whole exchange. He got out the truth on both of the main attacks, and essentially rendered McCain unable to bring them up for the duration of the selection season.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 7:42 pm | Reply

  27. I also think that in general, Obama was tough without being nasty, but McCain was a bit dickish. That’s probably what people will take out of it. Obama’s a nice guy and McCain’s a dick.

  28. Another shameless appeal to the Down’s baby.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 7:44 pm | Reply

  29. Wow! Obama just blasted McCain with the across the board spending freeze thing.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 7:46 pm | Reply

  30. I love the way that McCain makes things that aren’t easy sound easy by just adding the magic words “no problem” to his answer

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 7:49 pm | Reply

  31. I just noticed that McCain is not wearing a flag pin again.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 7:54 pm | Reply

  32. Had to drag out Chavz there.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 7:58 pm | Reply

  33. A little note on the lines on CNN that measure the independent responses. Last debate and this debate again, when it came to health care, Obama had the women peak out both times. McCain isn’t doing that well.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 8:01 pm | Reply

  34. McCain is talking about the “fine” again, which doesn’t exist by the way.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 8:02 pm | Reply

  35. I wonder what Joe thinks about all this.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 8:05 pm | Reply

  36. Some day I have to do an entry on this whole “hands of the states” thing but essentially that’s code word for helping the rich.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 8:09 pm | Reply

  37. It is fascinating how different this was than Saddleback on the abortion issue. Here’ Obama seems much more clear and McCain floundered. I feel McCain does a much better job when he’s on the home turf.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 8:14 pm | Reply

  38. I didn’t realize there was a “pro-abortion” movement. I think there’s a pro-choice movement, but I’ve never heard of anyone who was “pro-abortion.”

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 8:15 pm | Reply

  39. McCain’s doing a lot of snorting.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 8:17 pm | Reply

  40. He’s also doing a lot of smirking and blinking.

    Comment by Dianne Tudor — October 15, 2008 @ 8:19 pm | Reply

  41. On the abortion question, Obama generally scored higher with the independent voters, according to the lines anyway.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 8:20 pm | Reply

  42. McCain’s answer to the school question is vouchers apparently.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 8:22 pm | Reply

  43. Not throwing money at the problem doesn’t do much either.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 8:22 pm | Reply

  44. …at education that is.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 8:23 pm | Reply

  45. True. My wife was commenting on the incessant blinking. Incessant blinking is a autonomic response to lying by the way.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 8:24 pm | Reply

  46. McCain just went condescending again and the lines dropped. Someone should have helped him to realize that people generally don’t like jerks.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 8:27 pm | Reply

  47. He keeps talking about Palin’s child and then talking about Autism. The kid has Down’s Syndrome! You’d think he could get that straight!

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 8:28 pm | Reply

  48. McCain is just plain scary! Obama just makes sense, gets down to specifics on his policy plans and realizes that it isn’t all about him…he knows he (or any one man, for that matter)doesn’t have the answers to every problem. He talks about the smart experts he gathers around him. He would do that as president.

    Comment by Dianne Tudor — October 15, 2008 @ 8:31 pm | Reply

  49. That’s what I was wondering…how does he not know the disease afflicting his own running mate??!!
    Also, I guess Joe the Plumber is the gimmick that McCain and the Republicans where supposed to be coming up with tonight. How lame!

    Comment by Dianne Tudor — October 15, 2008 @ 8:34 pm | Reply

  50. Sorry…I meant the disease afflicting his running mate’s child.

    Comment by Dianne Tudor — October 15, 2008 @ 8:35 pm | Reply

  51. I think Obama probably actually won, but I think the pundits are gong to be saying that McCain did because they want a closer election.

    Comment by kelly — October 15, 2008 @ 8:36 pm | Reply

  52. awesome way to bring it to the public, above!!

    i watched, i had to……yes mccain pretty much put the proverbial noose around his neck on abortion, like i just said on another post he’s a dino the dinosaur on that issue.

    i loved obama’s education package & was glad to hear more about it!! i sit on the school board and this is a big sticking point with alot of my co chairs here in our district. obama’s education plan clearly is more of what we are all looking for. that voucher system may work for DC but we aren’t DC! they were going to try that in philly as well, it got shot down though!

    mccain was tougher then he’s been in the past, clearly looking for a fight. however obama, was calm, cool & collected & smiling…..to me that speaks volumes. in these trying times, i’d rather have a young, energetic, calm cool & collected man (as well as more educated i believe) in office.

    he had chances to take shots @ palin and passed on that, he had chances to pick alot of fights with McCain, i’m glad he did NOT! that speaks volumes on his character!!
