Friday Night’s Debate


There were no earth shattering revelations in Friday Night’s Presidential Debate by either candidate.


This, (I assume), is because of the volatile financial climate that is upon us as a nation, and the pending 700,000,000.00 billion dollar bale out of Wall Street, Each candidate was very careful to not commit political suicide by making statements that could be considered not politically correct, which is understandable.


So as a result, Friday Night’s debate was not really John McCain Verses Barack Obama.


It was old concepts, ideas, practices, procedures and policies that have not worked effectively, verses trying something new that has the potential of working better for a larger majority of the American People.


Both men cautiously made their points about the issues that we are currently facing in this country; and after listening very carefully on Friday, and reviewing the tape today, it was clear to me that John McCain will continue to implement programs that benefit large and powerful corporations and rich people.


Whereas, Barack Obama is interested in implementing programs designed to help the majority of Americans who are not rich and powerful, but just average working people.


When listening to John McCain on Friday, you had to be very careful and read between the lines of what he was saying, because what he was proposing is the same things that are already in effect, that created the problems that we are all suffering from now as a result.


McCain’s policies are those of George W. Bush wrapped in a different package.


I heard someone this morning ranking John McCain as the candidate with the most experience and education.


But I would have to partly disagree with them.


As far as experience is concerned, Senator John McCain has more of it then Barack Obama. However, doing the same things for a long time that do not get positive results are not a desirable kind of experience. 


And as far as education is concerned, John McCain graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis MD in 1958, 894th in a class of 899; only 5 other students had an academic performance record that was worst then McCain’s.


Whereas, Senator Barack Obama  studied at Occidental College for two years.[10] He then transferred to Columbia University in New York City, where he majored in political science with a specialization in international relations.[11] Obama graduated with a B.A. from Columbia in 1983

Obama entered Harvard Law School in late 1988. At the end of his first year, he was selected, based on his grades and a writing competition, as an editor of the Harvard Law Review.[19] In February 1990, in his second year, he was elected president of the Law Review, a full-time volunteer position functioning as editor-in-chief and supervising the Law Review’s staff of eighty editors.[20] Obama’s election as the first black president of the Law Review was widely reported and followed by several long, detailed profiles.[20] During his summers, he returned to Chicago where he worked as a summer associate at the law firms of Sidley & Austin in 1989 and Hopkins & Sutter in 1990.[21] After graduating with a Juris Doctor (J.D.) magna cum laude from Harvard in 1991, he returned to Chicago.


So they obviously did not do their research.


We are looking forward to a more entertaining debate when Sarah Palin debates Joe Biden this Thursday, and we plan to see more aggressive and lively debates between Senators John McCain and Barack Obama in the coming weeks after we get through this $700,000,000.00 billion dollar bailout.
