1st Presidential Debate – my perspective

I’d give the edge to Obama (50.1 – 49.9)…mainly due to style.

 

Obama seemed to be a little out of his element when talking budget.  He seemed to want us to buy the notion that we can cut spending by not cutting a single program…I guess I’m still confused.

 

Both presented their points like Presidents…Obama was willing to say over and over “when I’m President” McCain did not do so.  But Obama while seemed presidential did not seem to have any depth of the information.

 

I think that Obama got a schooling when it came to how government works…he seems to not understand the intricacy of the office of the President and McCain did a good job of pointing that out time and again.

 

Obama was willing to use the format of talking toward McCain and McCain did not meet his gaze once…McCain talked to the audience and the moderator and did not talk to Obama…I think that was a mistake the format offered it and since McCain was schooling him on the operation of the government it would have scored higher marks if those jabs would have been directed toward Obama not about him.
