I did watch the final Presidential debate last night. John McCain clearly ruled the evening on the issues. I admit, Barack Obama won the first two debates, but McCain showed true leadership and focus last night.
Best line was from John McCain to Barack Obama. “Sen. Obama, I am not President Bush. … You wanted to run against President Bush, you should have run four years ago.”
Obama made no immediate response to McCain’s assertion about having signed a pledge to accept federal campaign funds.
Obama also denied that his political “coming out” was in the living room of Bill Ayers. The New York Times reported the original story.
Obama did not fully admit to his involvement with ACORN. ACORN is supposed to be a non-partisan organization. However, there is video evidence of ACORN representative telling people they to register to vote Obama. This is not fair and should not be happening!
Joe the plumber was mentioned by both candidates a lot last night. Who is Joe? There is an interesting Fox News video clip that has been picked up by CNN and MSNBC. It shows Obama replying to Joe Wurzelbacher, an “Ordinary Joe”, who wants to buy a small plumbing business. He tells Obama his new tax plan will hurt him by taxing him more on the success he built after years of hard work.
Obama tells Wurzelbacher, “It’s not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they’ve got a chance at success, too. And I think that when we spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”
If you have a small business, you’re screwed and we the consumer will not fair any better. I think the small business owner is not going to do well under an Obama administration. McCain’s tax plan is better for you.
Obama’s healthcare plan sounds too good to be true which means there will be problems and changes. The U.S. government just doesn’t have a good track record of running things. Economy anyone?
Obama hopes $50 billion over 5 years on electronic medical records & improving access to proven disease management programs will save the consumer money. Many economists are skeptical Obama’s savings can be achieved. Not a certainty every dollar would pass on to consumers in lower premiums.
I’m tired of wasteful spending. U.S. needs to put a lock on it’s wallet. Pay off our debt before we all are forced to speak Chinese.
That’s my two cents.
