The Smirk: Could McCain's Facial Gestures Define Debate?


YouTube - McCain Won't Look At Obama
Why look at an inferior impostor? I wouldn't give obama the time of day or **** on him if he were on fire. He's out of his league, he really should try in a country he really loves and is proud of.

He's the same as Bush, inappropriate smiles and grinning.

Elect that man as President and we are guaranteed 4 more years of embarrassment, and the world would be laughing if they were not so damn worried

Obama looked like a student suffering from ADD, and McCain like a teacher telling him: "look, little boy, let me show you how this is done." That's all. Obama was impatient, stuttered, mumbled ("ah...ah...oh") all the time. No matter how much Obama inflated his talk, McCain deflated it with his response.

The lighting didn't favor Obama, since it reflected a very slight orange color on his face. Do you remember one of the debates between Bush and Kerry? In that debate, Kerry's tan made him look king of strange.

I am saying this from an independent-voter view of the event.

Obama said Orgy, bad taste in my mouth, swallow. And you people are worrying about McCains smilling? By the way, the smile is an old military grimace. It shows grit, determination and backbone. Something you liberals are incapable of comprehending.

McCain is the one who has said that he didnt begin to love America until he was in his thirties......he has said it over and over again....he didnt love America or miss her until he was a prisoner..Thats the truth "my friends".

You're taking what he said out of context.......again. He said he was young fancy foot free with not a care in the world until he was a POW and at that time, he fell in love with American and realized how much he loved her. You are trying to imply he did not love American and hated it prior to this. Pure nonesense.

something you wingnuts are incapable of understanding is reality, like Bush the cowboy (skeered of horses, though) y'all like to go from the "gut", dont need that thar thinking, we just go from the 'gut', like cowboy Dubya does.

And hows that working out for us?

LOL, don't forget to add the condescending tone. Like this: "Obama does not understa-a-a-and".

Yet he risked and almost gave his life, nawwww he couldn't have loved this country. Being a POW brought it to another level, one you couldn't possibly understand.
obama on the other hand hung out with known terrorist and enjoyed nose candy. Do you REALLY think they would let this boy finish out his term?
