John McCain showed us last night just how petty he can be. He refused to even look at Obama in the first debate. This time, he was able to actually turn his back while Obama was speaking.
And when it was all over, McCain tapped Obama on the shoulder, but then ignored Obama’s outstretched hand, leaving the “dirty work” of shaking it to his wife Cindy.
Obama, in contrast, paid attention and listened politely whenever McCain was speaking. In return, McCain referred to Obama dismissively as “that one.”
McCain even twisted Teddy Roosevelt’s famous statement, “Walk softly but carry a big stick,” to make it “talk softly” and imply that Obama’s a loud-mouth when it comes to Pakistan.
Overall, many of McCain’s comments seemed peevish, and his referring often to the audience as “my friends” rang hollow. Pacing around the open floor, McCain at times looked like a stooped geezer tottering around on aching feet.
It was like watching a stiff old Bassett hound trying to get the best of a sleek, young, black cat.
Ain’t gonna happen.
Polls are indicating a clear win for Obama, but still some undecided voters. Are these people all deaf and blind?
After watching Palin and McCain’s flippant disrespect toward their opponents in the debates, does anybody really think they’re capable of gaining the trust of any other leader they don’t personally like? Can’t the undecideds see that we’d be facing 4 more years of the world’s contempt if that pair gets into the White House?
The choice to me is as clear as the whiskers on my face. If cats could vote, Obama would have nothing to worry about.
