Hillary and Obama Debate in Texas.

It's on CNN. Discuss...



UPDATE: It's over. I thought he demolished her... or really, she didn't demolish him. CNN is saying that last statement by her was effective... I dunno, I thought it was crazy sounding...

First thing I notice, Hillary is wearing all black... as if she's attending her own funeral.

Jorge,

Yes, you work for Univision, but you're on CNN now. English, baby... English.

Dinosaur Trader said...

Jesus... he's demolishing her.

He won't even respond to her silly attacks. So she keeps getting smaller and smaller and he's getting bigger.

I'll say it again.

Uh oh.

McCain's going to win, IMO.

Dinosaur Trader said...

No chance...

I mean, if Hillary is the nominee, maybe. But Barack will tear him a new one.

Meanwhile, what was that crazy shit Hillary came out with in the end?

I'm sensing that people are going to wake up one morning and change their minds about troop withdrawal.

Barack is silky smooth, but McCain will use the 'straight talk' to pound reality back into the heads of the Barack hope-fantasy camp.

I also think the experience thing is going to be the deciding factor.

Dinosaur Trader said...

Dick Cheney had experience... look where that got us.

McCain has experience, true... but he's also 412.

too bad there are too many men out there who hate women too much. women will never be in power, because men just hate them too much. I hate Obama. if he wins the nomination for democrats, I totally think that McCain will win the presidential nomination. I heard that from so many people that if Hillary does not win they will vote for McCain. It is unfortunate that we wil have republicans once again and 100 years of war in Iraq. too many men hate Hillary and women and they will not allow them to be in power. it is unfortunate.
oh and one more thing, have you thought that the people who give money to Obama are the ones who hate Hillary and also the millions of health insurance companies who do not want Hillary to reform the health care because that means they will lose money. So I bet Obama has too much support from the men who hate Hillary, from the blacks and from the health inssurance and pharmaceutical companies who do not want Hillary plan. This is where he gets his money from too. So sad to see such a big scam in this world. Americans are tuerly stupid. They totally deserve the reputation they have in the world.

Dinosaur Trader said...

Whoa... "men hate women" is a bit of a blanket statement, no?

Yet, you say "I hate Obama."

Sadly, I think that's the only truth I detected in your comment.

i don't agree with that statement about men hating women in power, i mean lets be honest, he's a black man running for president of the u.s. the way people feel towards blacks i think that would benefit her don't u?

Dinosaur Trader said...

I think Barack has correctly framed this primary season as a battle of the politics of the past versus the politics of the future... ironically enough, it's not about gender or race.

roseal said...

i agree with the non race issue, i just hope all of america agrees with us

Dinosaur Trader said...

I think the people who don't like Hillary don't see her as a woman as much as they see her as a Clinton.

No doubt Obama has a tough road ahead. There will be some people who he will never be able to win over because they won't get past his race. I hope however, that that's a very slim minority of voters.

Obama is all hot air until he proves otherwise. The Presidency is not the best place to cut your teeth.

Hillary is a socialist that thinks people need to be run and controlled by the gov't. I think she just might be satan.

McCain, bless his old, old soul could give a shit about civil rights (not the race/ethnic kind) in the name of the so-called 'war on terror'.

Stock up on rice and beans, grab a few pistols and trade your cash for gold and silver, 'cause we're screwed either way the election turns out.

I wont comment on politics while drunk (thirsty Thursday) however I do find it funny/ironic when someone misspells a word in the same sentence by which they are talking about the stupidity of others.
Americans are tuerly stupid. -manuela

I think the experience issue is way over played on Hillary's part. Like Dino said, Cheney's got experience. Obama's got the judgment, and the bipartisan support to actually have something done. If Hillary's elected, I can just see the neo-cons dragging Billy back into everything. It's gonna be like 1999 all over again.

some facts on the actual legislative records of both candidates.

McCain: Screwed over in 2000. I like him (like him more given the vitriol directed at him from the likes of Limbaugh/Malkin and Co.) - but his time has passed.
Clinton: Hunch says she will edge the nomination. She will probably be a better president than many would be prepared to give her credit for.
Obama: The Da Kine! His Presidency would be the most interesting. Gets my vote (its the Hawaii in me!).

Best of all - no more Bush! Time to look forward, not backwards.

Great comments guys. I was a little worried when I went back to sleep that "manuela" would come back...

Happily, the regulars took over.

I actually think Obama has a conscience while Hillary can be swayed. I mean, why else did she drop her Universal Healthcare pursuit during Bill's first term?? The lobbyists.
Obama's got the smarts (as does Hillary) and I think he has the right judgment to lead the nation correctly. Remember, a president doesn't make all the decisions... his or her cabinet needs to be strong as well. Obama also has that certain something that motivates people. Yes, he can. Words can and do make a difference. Obviously, those words need to be backed up or he'll be out after one term. Finally, McCain is a scumbag (apart from his war hero stuff) who's shown bad judgment plenty of times in the past (special favors for lobbyists, Keating 5). You all should read about the Keating 5 and how John McCain is lucky to still be in office. He's the true charlatan in this election as he tries to profess ethics and 'straight talk' while making erroneous and ethical choices in the past. Plus... another 100 years in Iraq??? What's he crazy? Completely out of touch with reality? Uggghhh... Obama '08 really the only choice for hope.

todd said...

Well said 00nr7...The whole Keating 5 scandal was another one of those situations where corrupt politicians get in over their heads and then turn around pointing fingers at everyone but themselves. I mean, who's going to convict John Glenn of a white collar crime? Or War-Hero McCain for that matter? Then McCain turns around and draws up the McCain/Feingold Act. He must have thought that was his penance for his involvement in Keating 5. The state of politics is so sad really. Or maybe it's just the unfortunate truth of the times we live in.

America will not vote a commie into office, no matter how Kennedy-esque.

I admit, even I find him attractive, but -- ironically, like with Billy C -- you only need to listen to his less polished wife for about five minutes to know that he's Chavez-lite.

Listen, I'm not psyched about McCain either.
