Still not asking the hard questions as far as I am seeing.
They are finally asking harder questions to Obamitable, but they are still not asking hard enough questions. They're not really pinning him down the way they should be.

You have to watch it because if you listen to the biased talk show hosts, all you hear is how they didn't stick to the issues, and how hard Obama tried to stick to the issues. Bullcrap.They are crying foul because he lost big, and looked like a dumby. he couldn't answer the questions, so he would immediately say, oh but thats not an issue. The issue is can you think onyour feet? The answer is NO and he will never be able to handle mccain. Furthermore , there were plenty of issue questions for which Hilary gave in depth detailed answers. He would try but then get into philosophy of how he is going to do things different, he didn't ahve good answers because he doesn't know where to start, he hasn't had enough experience. WE don't have time for him to have on the job training. He is in way over his head, and he should get out now.
Exactly, and I repeat, while they did some "interrogating", they were not nearly hard enough on him, and they didn't push him to the wall like he should have been. She says one thing out of context about Bosnia, and he goes on for hours about how she's a liar, but I sat there and caught him in at least two lies that I've heard him say himself. And he always gets into a snit after he starts throwing stones, and then gets a stone thrown at him. He started throwing them and then started on with "oh, Hillary is out to get me, poor me, I'm so innocent, I didn't do anything wrong, wshe's so mean to me, wah wah wah wah wah".. if he can't handle a debate with her, and she's at the very least attempting to keep the democratic party cohesive, what the heck is he going to do against McCain?????

I was not so impressed with Barack. He actually had a couple of answers where his logic negated his reasoning for a previous answer. I felt like he was trying to put a gloss over things without specifics.
Hilary had details and repeatedly said if someone wanted ever more detail on any of her plans, everything was fully written out on her website.
The moderators did a good job. I thought they asked direct questions and twice I remember them going back and saying..."you didn't answer the question...".
I hope everyone who is making an opinion either watched it themselves or if a transcript can be found they actually read the transcript. The spin that has gotten really out of control.
Yes, the spin is amazing. Everything about Obaminable is hypocracsy. The media's spin on how evil Hillary is to Obama when poor little hate filled venom spitting Obama gets a small dose of what he's doing done to him.. ridiculous. She got three superdelegates this past week. Not a word on it in the media.
He gets one, the news is all over it.
He says she says mean things about him. His campaign newsletters daily are "hate hillary" newsletters.
I'm so sick of this man.. you know, the sad thing is I never thought I'd hate a democratic candidate more than I hate the Bush administration, nor did I ever think I'd hold on in more disdain. Obama has proven me absolutely wrong on this. Oh, I guess I'm just bitter.. that's what I get for being a Pennsylvanian.
Hillary did a wonderful job with this debate. I have to go back and watch the rest of it.. I went to sleep on the sofa about half way through because I'd worn myself out being peeved at Obama and his lack of real answers, his bold faced lies and contradictions and his attacks on Hillary.
Hillary, girl, you rock!!! I'm voting for her even if I have to write in. (And if I can't, I'll be voting for Nader).
