This is my first chance since Hurricane Gustov swept thru (and made one huge mess) to get on these boards. Just wondering if anyone is watching. Thoughts?

Why won't McCain look directly at Obama?   He looks like he's really intimidated by him and won't look.  Its been on for 40 minutes and he's not looked at him once!!!!!!!!!!!

Seek peace, and pursue it.

Perhaps he's afraid of being mezmerized? wink2.gif

The debate is to address the public, not each other.

Incredible...when McCain speaks, I can FEEL myself getting dumber.

If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic.

The debate is to address the public, not each other.



The moderator has asked no less than a million times for the candidates to address their comments to each other.  On top of this Blinky McSmirky is lookin'likaliar in half the stuff he says.  He wants to cut spending and help veterans....did I mention I'm a maverick???????  wash rinse repeat ohmy.gif


53 minutes and not one direct gaze.  He can't look him in the eye.  He doesn't even acknowledge him!  Holy CRAP!!!!! mad.gif


Bad strategy big time.  I bet you twenty bucks it will be in all the papers tomorrow!!!

It seems insecure people and liars are famous for not looking people in the eye.   Bad campaign move.  Way to piss off the black community for not even having the decency to look your black candidate in the face.  That's really going to make people mad as hell.  Mark my words.  no.gif

How many times has Obama said "John is absolutely right....". I think five.

Sarcasm is your answer?  We'll see tomorrow if the race card isn't thrown.  No he should have simply acknowledged his presence?  Why the run to the extreme?  You know I'm right.  Its rude to do this and people will totally roll this as racist.   59 minutes and not so much as a glance?  I mean I haven't watched debates before is this normal?  blink.gif


I'm watching right now at 59 minutes past 9 and he's talking directly to McCain and he's totally looking down and ignoring him.  I'm not talking about when McCain is giving the speech but when Obama is addressing him by name and looking at him.

For me, I'm just not concerned with who's looking at who. Their answers are more important, but that's my opinion. I did notice that Obama gave McCain the serious evil eye a few times. Funny.

Good point. I'm not a big fan of body language BS. Sometimes yes, but otherwise I think too much is put on a gesture.

Yeah well I've been on UM all week so their answers aren't really new to me.  Its the same thing.  I'm really watching this to see how they conduct themselves under pressure.  And all I can think is a president who won't look people in the eye is not going to make a very good impression to foreign leaders at all.

Oh and what sparks of brilliance do you see fluttering out of McCain's mouth?  He looks like he's trying to find his drool cup on the podium and is repeating the same crap over and over again.   laugh.gif


I mean seriously if you were in Obama's shoes it wouldn't bother you at all?  I'd be screaming LOOOOOK AT MEEEEEEEEEEEE!  by now!  LOL  tongue.gif
