I'm having wireless problems, but will do what I can. Have at it...
Obama was almost too nice, refusing to call McCain's stunt about Obama not understanding things by saying, flat out- "John, no matter how many times you repeat your tired talking point about my not understanding issues, the simple fact remains that you didn't understand that invading a country that had nothing to do with September 11 would prevent us from catching those who did have something to do with it; you didn't understand that a war against a nation that had nothing to do with international terrorism would create a front in the war on terror that previously didn't exist; you didn't understand that invading a country that had nothing to do with September 11 would devastate that country, our military, our economy, and our international standing. John, you've been in politics a long, long time. You may have understood the world of the 20th Century, but you clearly don't understand the world of the 21st Century." Obama's best moment was when he attacked McCain on Iraq, and he should have repeated the attack every time McCain repeated his talking point about Obama being green.
McCain seriously mistated his vote concerning the marines in Lebanon. He said that when he went into Congress in 1983, he voted against deploying them in Beirut. The Marines went in Lebanon in 1982, before McCain came to Congress. The vote came up a year into their deployment, when the Marines had already suffered 54 casualties. What McCain voted against was a measure to invoke the War Powers Act and to authorize the deployment of U.S. Marines in Lebanon for an additional 18 months. The measure passed 270-161, with 26 other Republicans (including McCain) and 134 Democrats voting against it.
