Debate Open Thread

An open thread for your impressions and thoughts.

My take, Obama was adequate but McCain exceeded expectations.

McCain: $3 million to study the DNA of bears?

We’ve heard that one before.

McCain’s been playing it for laughs since 2003. The study in question was done by the U.S. Geological Survey, and it relied in part on federal appropriations. Readers (and politicians) may disagree on whether a noninvasive study of grizzly bear population and habitat is a waste of money. McCain clearly thinks it is — but on the other hand, he never moved to get rid of the earmark. In fact, he voted for the bill that made appropriations for the study. He did propose some changes to the bill, but none that nixed the bear funding.

Obama: 'Debate is More Important Than Ever'




Texas Debate - Healthcare

The nuts and bolts of the candidates differences on healthcare. Only comments on the topic of healthcare and the differences in their positions will be accepted. If no one is interested in that discussion that's also fine. Just move along there's nothing to see. There is excellent background information here.

Healthcare

An excellent discussion of the differences in the healthcare plans of the candidates. Okay, so excellent is an exaggeration, but good for a debate.

The Predators

A nice discussion of those who prey on the poor, those who prey on the unsophisticated, those greedy bastards who hide behind a corporate facade. They are the payday lenders, the sub-prime mortgage lenders, they are the new mafia. They don't send out their goons to break arms. They pay politicians to pass laws to help them enforce their immoral behavior.

Barack Obama voted against limiting credit card rates to 30% because it wasn't good enough. What the fuck?

I don't know who I'll support if an Edwards miracle fails. I had been leaning towards Obama, but I thought Hillary was better on the issues tonight, not as good as Edwards, but better than Obama.
