Here are all my tweets during debate No. 3 with some explanation:
– In 20 days, at this time, all the networks would have already declared Barack Obama president-elect. Can’t wait.
- Under all reasonable polling data, Obama has a 95 percent chance of winning on Nov. 4.
– BTW, that poll said Obama won 2-1 again.
– cbs poll said 58 percent are STILL undecided… my recommendation. Just skip the presidential vote.
- McCain needed to win BIG TIME tonight. He failed to do so.
– two thumbs up for Bob Schieffer… best moderator. #current
- I may need to watch Face the Nation much more.
– GW Bush supported vouchers and had a GOP Congress for six years. Still no vouchers. #current
– current I’m a private school teacher at a school with declining enrollment. I don’t support vouchers.
- During the last few presidential election, Republican candidates have promoted vouchers. The last Gallup Poll on education in 2006 showed that only 2 percent of Americans thought school vouchers would be the best way to fix education, while 17 percent believed better teachers and a more basic curriculum were the best ways to improve the system.
– Obama has completely dominated McCain toward the end of this debate. #current
– visually, Obama is much more presidential. #current
– McCain has completely lost it
– why does McCain keep rolling his eyes? for the old candidate, that’s pretty immature.
- The moment of the debate didn’t come when John McCain said, “If you wanted to debate George Bush, you should’ve run four years ago. Rather it came when Barack Obama said Joe the Plumber wouldn’t have to pay his employees anything. McCain said, “It wouldn’t?” And when Obama went on to explain the small business exemption, McCain looked shocked. Here’s the video:
– Orwellian moment: pro-choice does not equal pro-abortion #current
– Lake of Fire… everyone needs to watch that movie about abortion
- McCain wants to paint abortion as a black and white issue. It’s not. That’s why I recommend everyone watch Lake of Fire. There are several ethical issues involved in the abortion debate and those are explored in that movie. In addition, the anti-abortion movement has really done an excellent job at painting “pro-choice” as “pro-abortion.” This is just like calling someone voting against the Iraq War as someone who supports terrorism.
Taxes and health care
– I don’t trust ME with my money. I’d rather buy TVs, cars and video games than health care.
– If Joe makes $250,000, he’s in the top 5 percent of all American wage earners.
- Both of these are completely true. Look around America and most people are like me. Just look at the most irresponsible of all purchases – the SUV. If Americans could be trusted with their money, they wouldn’t buy SUVs and unaffordable luxury homes.
- If I earned $250,000 per year, I wouldn’t mind paying a bit more in taxes.
– Me, a single individual, has to pay $5,000 on my tax plan… poor families. #current
– McCain: Liar, liar! Zero! It’s federally mandated!
– I wonder if there IS a Joe the Plumber… it’s probably Palin’s husband.
– My guess on McCain’s response: THAT BOY wants to have a mandated federal-run health care system. Mine is a tax cut.
- McCain’s tax credit would do nothing for me. Obama’s would give me a few more dollars in my pocket every month.
