While watching last night's debate, it struck me just how much John McCain hates Democrats in general and hates Barak Obama in particular.
Jim McNeil, to his credit, attempted to get the two candidates to speak directly to each other, and Barak Obama was willing to reach out to McCain and address issues to him. Oddly enough, McCain never once looked directly at Obama. McCain is afraid of Barak Obama, considers him his superior, and needs to bring him down.
McCain's attempts at attacking Barak as being naive are actually a reflection of his own insecurity. The name calling (e.g. "most liberal senator") and lying ("increasing taxes") are the stunts of a school-yard bully who cannot discuss issues as an adult.
Barak Obama's attempts at camaraderie were ignored by McCain, and Barak did a good job at calling McCain on his BS.
Now the one thing that Barak Obama has got to learn is that McCain is his enemy and that he cannot afford to give John an inch. Cut out the comments about John being "right" about an issue. I never heard McCain give Obama any credit, and Barak Obama needs to respond in kind. Treat these debates as though the fate of the world depends on your victory. It does!
Between now and November, the Republic (sic) party is going to be throwing everything it can at Barak Obama in their attempts to relegate Barak to the minor leagues. The most formidable enemy of the country is not Iran; it is John McCain and the Republic party, and they are not willing to negotiate.
Right now the Republic theme song is “Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Obama”. With Nukes.
