Since I find myself so frustrated with the one-sided reporting, and find the polls on the debates to be incredibly skewed to the tenor of the website, I’d like to discuss perceptions of the third presidential debate.
What did you think? Go on, feel free to tell me what you really thought. 🙂
I thought Senator McCain did well. I was left wishing that we could have seen a little bit more of “this” McCain two months ago. I think we’d be at a completely different place in this presidential race if we had.
The round-table discussion seemed to help him relax in a way that standing at a podium does not. The conversational tone allowed him to be himself a little bit more.
I thought that Bob Schieffer did a pretty good job at moderating, of bringing to light questions that have not been asked at previous debates. I think the candidates differences were allowed to “hang” in the air, not fall victim to rapid-fire questions. I think one of Senator McCain’s strongest declarations was when he mentioned how he and Cindy knew the joy of an adopted child, and how much that child brought to their lives. There wasn’t much that Senator Obama could say to rebut that pro-life action.
Overall, it seemed a good debate. I am left wondering, however, if it was too little too late. For the sake of unborn children, I hope not. I continue to pray for a McCain/Palin win.
Please, share your thoughts with me.
