Obama follows McCain’s “Obama doesn’t understand” remark by going after McCain’s judgment on Iraq. Very powerful.
At the end of the Bartlet/Richey debate on The West Wing, Richey admitted to Bartlet that he lost the election at the end of the debate, to which Bartlet replied, “You’ll be back.” Senator Obama has all but locked up this thing tonight.
Did McCain say, “Obama’s got a secret you don’t know”? I totally missed that. Weird and paranoid.
McCain’s hero is Reagan. McCain’s hero is Roosevelt.
Obama nails McCain on the Afghanistan follow-up. Bomb, bomb, bomb Iran. Annihilate North Korea. Next stop, Baghdad. Speak softly? he said.
This is McCain’s strong suit? The town hall? He’s become more scattered and doddering as this has gone on. I can’t imagine anyone beyond hard-right partisans declaring this a win for him.
There’s only one president on that stage and it’s not McCain and his reptilian tongue.
Obama has connected almost all of his answers to you and me. That’s one of many reasons why he won this thing in a landslide. He won it on optics and debate points. Also, Huffington Post has “that one” on the front page in the big above-the-fold section. I think that’s going to be a big story coming out of this debate.
Obama is still hanging out and talking with the audience. McCain is long gone. Buchanan: Obama looked “presidential.”
