Wow – McCain used that Joe the Plumber ‘name’ AGAIN.
Gets old fast…
Finished for the night; possibly a recap at some point tonight. Watching the rest from my friendly armchair. Comment if you wish; feel free to add lines that you thought were good.
“They know that she [Palin] is a role-model for Americans” – wait, what?
//FACEPLANT, part II.
“She’s a reformer through and through. It’s about time we had a breath of fresh air…she understands reform. By the way, she also understands special needs families…I’m proud of her…I can’t tell you how proud of her I am.”
Obama laughed (audibly) at McCain’s “my campaign is not about raising taxes,” etc.
Wow – a question about why a VP would be a better president than the other guy’s VP. Obama first. Touched on foreign policy; Biden from Scranton (another shout-out…nice). McCain’s coming next.
Obama: “(Aires [spelling?] is not part of my campaign…)
“ACORN…has nothing to do with us. The only I had to do with them was…helping them [establish some kind of ‘motor-voter-registration push].”
McCain brought up ACORN and “Mr. Harris.” Let’s see what boils over.
McCain has referenced “Joe the Plumber” almost an uncountable amount times.
Obama just did very well, I think, with the whole “terrorist / kill him / pal around with terrorists” thing at Republican rallies.
McCain: “Let me say that I am very pound of the people who come to my rallies.”
McCain: “I watched the Arizona Cardnials defeat the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday-”
Obama: “- congratulations.”
I’m still laughing.
Obama: “And 100% of your ads, John, 100%, have been negative-”
McCain: ‘-that’s not true.’
What a question. If you missed it, think of this: “Will you say everything your campaign and your running mates have been saying to your opponent’s face?” Wow. This will be good.
“Even Fox News disputes it, which doesn’t really happen with me” – Obama
“If you wanted to run against President Bush, you should have run four years ago.” – McCain had a zinger!
