CNN Democratic Debate

CNN's Democrat debate just began. Both candidates gave their introductions, and Hillary immediately noted some of her accomplishments in the Senate. She must be following the "Obama doesn't have any accomplishments" meme.

Both candidates are struggling with colds or something. Hillary's voice sounds like it might give out at some point tonight and Obama still sounds like he has a head cold. Let's see if he can get another round of applause for blowing his nose.

At the end of his intro he quoted Barbara Jordan. At least he attributed the quote this time.

Update: Sorry for cutting out at the start of the debate, but my 2 1/2 year old daughter suddenly got sick. From what I did see, it seems that Hillary didn't gain any ground with this debate even though she is the one who insisted on having it. She thought the debate would benefit her since she could highlight her experience versus Obama's lack of experience. It doesn't look like it worked as well as she hoped it would

Zelsdorf Ragshaft III:

Adrian, if you consider higher taxes and less freedom winning, then you are right. The democrats will take away your money and your choices. In your case that is probably a good idea as judging by your political leanings you should not be in control of your money or freedom. There were European speakers, during the 1930's who spoke of hope and change. I wonder if that is what Hussein Obama has in mind.

You won't have to wait for long.

Michael:

Obama is not going to be President unless America suddenly became liberal overnight and add the fact that he is a empty suit with few accomplishments seals the fact. Once again the Dims are nominating unelectables.

'Just for the record, give us five reasons "America will be a better place for having Barack Obama as president."'

"Reasons"?

I don't quite understand that question.

If what you mean to ask is "Give us five ways America will be a better place specifically because Barack Obama is president?"

I would answer I'm just not interested in answering a question like that. You can read Obama's platform and opinions and plans on his official campaign website.

Of course you don't.

Then why make a statement like that?

This is hilarious.

I'm not interested in person attacks. If you felt anything I said was a personal attack it wasn't meant as one.

I'm not interested in person attacks.

That's not a personal attack. It's a challenge to defend your statement. I quoted you verbatim.

Thin skin and vaporous praise won't get you very far here.

Adrian Browne:

"Of course you don't."

Not to belabor the point but it was that remark which sounded like an attempt to insult me. As in "you're too stupid to understand." I still think it was meant as insult. I'm not condemning you for it -- just not interested.

Read Obama's website if you want to -- or not.

Just for the record, give us five reasons "America will be a better place for having Barack Obama as president."

1. Hope
2. Change
3. Hoping for Change
4. Changing for Hope.
5. Hoping for spare change.

I've heard similar (but more intelligent) conversations from Moonies and Scientologists when they're trying to convert people.

But for heaven's sake, DON'T say that the following of Obama is cultlike.

The phrase "I'm just not interested in answering . . ." cannot be construed as trying to convert someone to your cause. IMHO

The huge emotional following Hussein gets just proves to me that the democrats don't care about policy, plans, or security, they just want to feel good. ww

dr lava:

If you are really interested in finding out answers to your questions about Obama you could read his book, "The Audacity of Hope"

I realize that you "conservatives" spend most of your time watching "Fox and Friends" and frying up squirrel but there is an audio version for those that are reading challenged.

If you are really interested in Obama why don't you get your info directly from him instead of woiting for Hannity to tell you what to think.

My only reservation is that most of you guys voted for Bush not once but TWICE. I don't think your gonna understand much of what he says but the book is a pretty color.

Then why do you post here? Are you just here to post Obamie hot air?

You can't respond because Obama stands for nothing..well leftwing nothing.

All you posts have been vaporous...just like the Obama campaign.

It's the equivalent of holding up a sign with the name of the team you're rooting for at a sporting event. That's all.

After that, I said if you're interested in Obama's platform you should read his website -- if you want to -- that's really the extent of my trying to "convert" anyone.

I have gone to Obama's website and his platform is nothing but platitudes...utterly vaporous platitudes at that. No specifics anywhere.

So far many chances were provided to the lefty trolls here to give a couple of examples of what Obama stands for. Nothing, nothing was noted. Very telling. Very telling indeed. ww

I can't believe everyone is buying into what was said in that debate. Both candidates contradicted themselves regularly, and when they weren't they were just wrong. Read all the issues with their answers here: http://www.thepolitrick.com/?p=83
