Debating in Mississippi
I went over to my friends house the other night for an Obama party. We had dinner, talked, and watched the debate. It was great!
The debate itself was very interesting- there may not have been a knockout winner according to CNN.com, but I was swayed further. I didn’t have anything against McCain before, I just liked Obama’s policies more. But I can honestly say that after the debate, I can whole-heartedly say that McCain’s smugness and arrogance totally turned me away from his platform even more.
Have you ever had that teacher where you didn’t want to ask any questions because he just scoffed and laughed with his shoulders like you’re an idiot in front of the whole class. That’s the impression that McCain tried to give off the whole night. I love how he peppered his speech with sad stories and huffed in the microphone while Obama was speaking. Such childish disrespect.
I got into my own debate with one of my friend/classmates/coworkers a few days ago. Randy wanted to talk about how he thought that people were going to go to the polls, black people mind you, just to vote for a black man. But I argued that just as many people would go to vote against a black man.
Much more followed including an argument and heated discussion. Yuck. Politics.
The debate the other night between the VP candidates was pretty interesting also. I thought Palin did better than expected but Biden was the victorious one. Palin, to me, just kept turning the questions around to energy which seemed to be the only topic she was well versed in. And throwing around the term “maverick” when cornered. Not to mention the “McClellan” mixup. Biden was polished and polite and stated the facts.
What do you think about all this?
