First Presidential Debate of 2008

I had originally considered live-blogging during this event, then decided not to, partially because I was playing WoW when it started >.> But there were just a couple of moments when I couldn’t restrain myself.

10:03 p.m. That was the best presidential debate in quite some time. 1992 was probably superior, but still, quite good.

9:34 p.m. Senator McCain, please tell me what the advantages of your experience have been. From where I’m sitting, that experience has led you to doing the same thing over, and over again, with the same poor results time after time. We can’t support another failure for the next four years.

9:30 p.m. Obama: A Man for Diplomacy. ZOMGiddy. Restore our standing in the world? Get elected, and I think we’ll be halfway there.

9:26 p.m. Is it just me, or is McCain a bit of a spotlight hog? He’s overrun the moderator at least 3 times so far tonight. Admittedly, Obama’s done it twice now, though, in trying to respond to McCain’s out-of-time statements. I don’t know, McCain just seems more rude about it, and I think he’s talked a lot longer after being told to stop than Obama has. Obama seems more respectful of the time limits.

9:09 p.m. Hey, McCain: Talking to someone doesn’t mean you agree with them.

9:02 p.m. Senator Obama. Kicking ass. Taking names.

One thought on “First Presidential Debate of 2008

  1. While agreeing that it was the best debate in some time. I don’t feel that either man made a strong statement. Neither really said what they would do about the economy. Neither said what they would do about foreign policy. They both talked around the subjects. McCain seems more disdainful of Obama. Obama agreed with McCain too much. Obama seemed more respectful of McCain. Went in undecided and remain that way. Was an interesting debate anyway.
