I’ve had it. Look at this-2 points behind with ZOGBY-ZOGBY! This thing is far from over. OK so McCain is not Ronald Reagan-Got it! However he’s put in 2 far superior performances than our current president ever did. A couple of non-politicos in my office mentioned two things-1) they both did well (believe it or not a really high standard for McCain to achieve given that the best the MSM will ever grade the debate is a tie) and 2) That buying of houses thing might work.
My wife-who still doesn’t know who she’s voting for said the following last night 1) McCain is energetic and 2) Obama’s comment’s on Pakistan proves “he doesn’t have a clue as to what to do.”
You watch MSNBC-their reaction afterwards was all on McCain with nary a word about Obama-good sign me-thinks.
He’s got to pander to the middle-he’s got to. That’s the way it works. You hardly ever get zingers out of these (name any from Bush / Kerry). The polls are always pushing Democrats this cycle-8 point leads in turnout-good luck. Even Nixon couldn’t get them there.
Thanks for the vent!
