Come Togetherrrrr right now….over me (& Obama) [by Jackie]
I am going to give a little overview of the last presidential debate from my perspective. At 8:53 PM I knew I only had a couple of minutes to make my getaway.
I showed up at the Ely Lounge to meet up with my Political Communication class. The debate started at 9:00, but the gym was only opened until 10! What to do, what to do?! So I decided it was in everyone’s best interest for me to sneak down to the gym right before the debate started and then come back up about 45 minutes in. So after my 2 mile run I headed back up. I had to be kinda secretive so my professor didn’t notice. Oh wait..I hope he isn’t reading this…
I sat down just in time. McCain was all, ” Well I didn’t like some of the things that were yelled at your rallies Senator Obama. In fact some t-shirts were made that just aren’t acceptable!” Woah what did I walk in on? This was intense! I was all hot and sweaty, or maybe that was from the run? I did feel bad for both of them. I mean whatever I know they are running for president and they have all this money and who cares about their feelings, but you could really tell that they were both hurt about things that had been said.
Obama wants everyone, Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Aliens and whomever else to come together! He believes that in order to solve two wars, get out of this horrible financial crisis, and get more jobs and other good stuff we need to all work together or else we won’t be any better off. Obama is trying to get down to business and then McCain comes out with this Acorn issue. So annoying. Acorn is a community organization that apparently diddled around with some votes, paid people to go register false votes they made up names and what not.. I don’t know the exact details but I do know that Obama didn’t have anything to do with it!
I won’t go over the whole debate, Angela and Alicia have really covered it. I just wrote down some random notes while watching it which I will now go over:
McCain: Blinks a lot. — likes the word “cockamamie”
Obama: Nice smile.— Wants more fuel-efficient cars. $4,000 tuition credit to college students in exchange for community service/peace core/ other stuff. I LIKE IT!
