“Mr. Obama, you are a newcomer (to politics). Wait until your sweat dries and get some experience. Be careful not to read just any paper put in front of you or repeat any statement recommended,” Ahmadinejad said in the speech, aired live on state TV.”

     Probably to the dismay of his chief strategist David Axelrod, Sen. Barack Obama proclaimed no less the seven times during the 1st Presidential Debate that “Yes John, You’re Right!!”

     While both campaigns are claiming a victory (surprise) in the Debate, Sen. John McCain was clearly the stronger candidate, the Commander-in-Chief. Sen. Obama, in fairness, has evidently worked, somewhat, on moving his answers past theoretical rhetoric and trying to hone in on an answer quicker. It didn’t work throughout the Debate, but he must get a passing mark for at least trying.

     And though he tried to get “under McCain’s skin” to draw out McCain’s anger, it was actually McCain who riled Obama, and knocked his legs out from under him a time or two. I would have liked to see McCain drill at Obama a bit more in the 5 minute back-and-forth segments, McCain held his own and hammered at some of his key points. The Obama camp has harped at the fact that McCain did not mention middle Americans when discussing the economy, but I know that Obama’s tax cuts to “95%’ of us will be paid for on the backs of the small business owners, and thus passed back to middle America in the form of higher prices on goods and services.

     McCain made sure that he stressed the point that he is ready on DAY ONE, and that Obama needs “on the job training” as indicated by his “no preconditions” policy of open talks with some of our enemies, such as Ahmadinejad and Castro. An even better discourse occurred when McCain mentioned the story of the mother of a slain soldier whose name is on the bracelet he wears. In response, Obama says “I have one too!!”.

      In the end, Obama let McCain rile him a bit, but McCain did not let Obama push him off-topic whatsoever. Now, on to the Vice-Presidential debate on October 2nd. I think we are going to see the McCain camp let loose its fiery cannon at the Obama team– Gov. Sarah Palin is NOT the ditzy woman that the Obama team and the media are making the Alaska Governor out to be. IMHO, the McCain camp has kept Gov. Palin under wraps and away from the media limelight so that when she comes out on Thursday night, she will be the “Hockey Mom in Lipstick“, ready to be the McCain teams PitBull!! A word to the wise Senator Biden, watch your patronizing, or you’ll slip and call her “Honey”, and with that, it will all be over with for Obama!!
