McCain Was On His Game Tonight
Sen. John McCain has had a lot of experience grappling with foreign policy issues and it really showed tonight. Obama looked like a shrinking violet trying to stand toe-to-toe to McCain. I watched the debate on Fox News, which used the split screen. Obama's facial expressions and demeanor while McCain was speaking did him no favors tonight. He acted like a spoiled brat who couldn't wait his turn to speak. He appeared to be scowling at McCain whenever he spoke, while McCain always had a pleasant smile on his face when Obama spoke. As for the age thing, McCain spoke clearly and deliberately at all times. Obama continuously stammered and stuttered to piece together his thoughts. McCain didn't have to look down at his wrist to know the name of the fallen Iraqi War soldier he was honoring with a bracelet. Obama's "I've got one too and his name is . . . uuh . . . looks down . . . what is it? . . . oh, yeah." I fell out of my chair laughing watching him read the soldier's name on his bracelet. How could you wear a bracelet on your wrist every day in honor of a fallen soldier and not recall his name? I guess if you're only wearing it for show and not as a sincere tribute to the son of the mother of the fallen soldier who gave it to you.
