One thing from the debate that struck a chord with me is that I saw McCain as being a bigger war monger than I thought he was. And while I feel like he has a grasp on foreign policy, he really scares the heck out of me. I really don't want another war mongering president. After the debate, it became apparent to me, that McCain is another dangerous man.

Old Man McCain shakes his fist and shouts, "Get off my lawn!"

Obama dropping bombs on a nuclear armed country does not make him a peace loving man. He doesn't care how many civilians die or if we go to war as long as he can say he got Osama. He is cold hearted.

It seemed to me that McCain just hasn't gotten over the Vietnam war...and that he is seeing the war in Iraq as a way to "get back" at American society for saying "enough is enough" back then. It is NOT dishonorable to leave Iraq, it was dishonorable to start a war based on lies in the first place.

I liked Senator Obama's comment that no matter where an American soldier fights, s/he never dies in vain because they are carrying out the orders of their commander in chief.

Senator Obama said that if Osama bin Laden was finally in the sights of the military, and if he was in Pakistan and that government wouldn't do anything to take him out, then YES, the US would go in and capture him...and kill him.

How can you call McCain a warmonger when Obama himself says he will continue the war on terror? Makes no sense.

When the heck did Obama say he was going to do this? You must have watched a different debate than I did.

McCain looks like he has PTSD issues, he obviously was PO'ed last night the way he talked down to Obama.

Did any of you actually listen to the debate?

Obama said he wants to expand the war in Afghanistan by sending more troops.

Obama said he would pursue Al-Qaeda in Paksitan without their permission just like George Bush has done. Pakistan is a nuclear power and pretty unstable at times. I cringe when I hear we've crossed the border without the proper agreements in place.

Apparently, Obama is only against wars that are not his idea.

This wasn't in the debate. It is something Obama said a long time ago but it stuck with me.

"If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won't act, we will," - Obama
