Tonight is the night, the last chance for John McCain to get it right. The last debate and showdown between the Maverick and that guy for Ch-ch-change! OK…so it is really not a debate; it is more like a boring joint press conference.
Here is a thought. How about we ditch the moderator, give these two guys a microphone and tell them “You have 90 minutes to argue this thing out. Go!
Now that would be a debate!
Back to reality…McCain has to put the boxing gloves on tonight and fight. If he doesn’t it is over for him. I thought it was over for him after the last debate, but ACORN and a man named Bill Ayers has surfaced. (It’s about damn time!!!)
McCain needs to focus on those issues. He should also point out that Obama can’t give tax cuts to 95 percent of Americans when 45 percent of Americans don’t pay income taxes. What Obama is really proposing is a giant welfare program that will cost those paying taxes almost 100 million a year. Those who will pay for this are those who write a lot of people’s paychecks. Do you think they will take the hit and continue writing paychecks or do you think some of those paychecks may disappear?
Of course I doubt McCain will come out swinging like the old fighter pilot should. Afterall it was just a few days ago he praised Obama by saying "I have to tell you he is a decent person and a person that you do not have to be scared of as president of the United States," on the campaign trail. It was responded with booos from the crowd.
Perhaps, McCain has learned from that experience. We should know about 15 to 20 minutes into the debate tonight. If he doesn’t take a swing and put Obama on the defensive I am changing the channel.
The joke that has Obama worshipers in an uproar: What do Barack Obama and Osama Bin Ladin have in common? They both have friends who bombed the Pentagon! That is a joke? I find it to be true. I would add they both want Bush out of the White House and our troops out of Iraq.
