McCain came out swinging in last night’s presidential debate. He was powerful, pointed, and passionate.
But as the debate wore on and he sat there with a constant smirk on his face whenever Obama was talking, I got so mad I wanted to pick up something and throw it at him!
I’m sure McCain considers his plans for the nation far superior to Obama — and there’s nothing wrong with that. But to sit there with this condescending look on his face was totally uncalled for.
CNN analysts said what they saw was internal anger … that McCain was “seething” inside. Maybe. Maybe not. But even if the analysts were correct, do we want a president who has trouble controlling his temper and who is known for emotional outbursts? Someone who might hit The Button just because an enemy pushed him a little too far?
And then his snide remarks about Obama’s oratory skills. What’s with that? Afraid that Obama might convince people because he knows how to talk to them on their level?
To me, McCain’s ‘superior’ attitude was simply a demonstration of his sense of inadequacy and inferiority in the face of a person who had far more control, far more self-assurance, and a far better chance of becoming the next President of the United States.
