Hey fellas, sorry I could not join yall tonight in the debate thread. I just watched the debate replay and I dont think McCain had the game-changer that he needed. The split screen was brutal for McCain, all the face grimaces, rapid blinking, audible deep breaths, rolling the eyes, and gritting his teeth. He looked mad and just flat angry tonight. I dont know if it was directed at Obama or trailing in the polls, or whatever. It just didnt come across very good on TV. Now Obama did sniker a couple of times and looked like he was laughing at McCain when there was nothing funny said, some people say that was being cocky. McCain did a good job of saying "I am not Bush, you should have run 4 years ago", but Obama countered effectively saying that he mistaken McCain for Bush because the policies are the same or something like that. McCain never elaborated on specific policies and how he will be fundementally different, he needed to give specifics or people will not believe it, just campaign talk. They are making a big deal of McCain saying that the "health" of the mother is not that important in the abortion debate. He may get some flack for this from the Women's groups they are saying, I really didnt think it was that big of a gaffe myself but we will see. Overall, no game changer and I doubt the polls will move very much. If McCain has any hope of closing the gap he has to answer one single question that he has failed to do in his entire campaign: How is McCain fundementally different from Bush on the majority of the issues? He cant just say it, he must specifically state how his tax policy, his healthcare policy, his foreign policy, ect.....is not slightly different, but FUNDEMENTALLY DIFFERENT from Bush. If he cannot answer this question then Obama will win in a landslide.
