Round Two of the Obama-McCain debates went pretty much as Round One did: As the bitter fruits of Republican wars and deregulation become ever more apparent, people are not in the mood for clowning around. With a chronic global economic meltdown so severe that it’s caused the central banks of the world’s nations to coordinate a worldwide rate cut, they want to see that whoever holds the briefcase with the launch codes is a sober, steady-minded, competent leader.
Once again, Obama passed that test and McCain didn’t. Obama looked calm and in control; McCain was obviously tired and flailing wildly, and it showed in his deteriorating temper, nonexistent tact, and subpar memory and verbal skills. All of these came together in one telling trifecta with his referring to Obama as "that one" at one point in the alleged debate.
"That one". Heh. That’s PRESIDENT ‘That One’ to you, ‘my friend’.
