Obama Comes Out on Top of First Debate

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Obama flexed his political muscles last night:

Fifty-one percent of those polled thought Obama did the better job in Friday night’s debate, while 38 percent said John McCain did better. Men were nearly evenly split between the two candidates, with 46 percent giving the win to McCain and 43 percent to Obama. But women voters tended to give Obama higher marks, with 59 percent calling him the night’s winner, while just 31 percent said McCain won.

This is a very important time in America, and although it was a Friday night, we hope some of you had a chance to check out the first debate. We are glad to see Obama get a chance to silence some of the critics. Was it us, or did McCain have one more time to talk sh*t before he got his ass kicked? Obama is still a brother, come on now!

    The CNN viewer response graph said it all really. Each time McCain tried to go at Obama, dems, republicans and independents didn’t care for it.

    Obama got game

    I really enjoyed the debate because Obama was forceful but not rude. I think McCain showed his true colors which is the tendancy to be rude under pressure. He hardly looked at Obama which showed again why Obama would be the much better candidate.

    obama talked about the real working people and McCain talked about businesses. McCain talked about the war was good and Obama pointed out that although we are doing good now from 2003 to 2006 that was not the case.

    Sarah Palin was a no show (enough said)

    Joe Biden was there to answer questions afterward.

    @Redd Tony – I am impressed with your comment!

    CNN had the best coverage period. Let’s don’t forget the “open secret” that personally McCain can’t stand Obama which he has said to alot of people “privately”. Those triggers have been openly acknowledge which say’s it all at the end of the day the majority of those supporting McCain are out right prejudice people and they want you to know it. Keep fighting Obama, the American people are waking up with the rest of the WORLD. We are sick and tired of “Bush Cowboy and McCain Maverick” treating everyone like “trash”. OBAMA ALL THE WAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE.

  • Really!!!

    I agree he appeared so snobbish and angry. He tried everything he had to try and belittle Barack, but he couldn’t. Barack looked him straight into the eye and got his point across each and every time. McSame could not look intently at Barack or certainly not at any foreign leader for that matter.

    I thought the debate was a draw. McCain killed it on the military and the Iraq war, but Barack wiped the floor up with him on the economy. Barack had me cracking up repeatedly calling McCain Jim. I think he did it on purpose. For pure comedy tune in to the Biden/Palin debate on Thursday. I’m just praying Biden doesn’t go too hard on the gun toting beauty queen.

    I thought Sen. Obama held his own on stage and demonstrated that he has a great understanding of foreign policy and ecomonics and how it all connects to the American people.

    McCain tried to be condescending, he kept saying Sen. Obama doesn’t have the understanding, but he was no match for Sen. Obama.


  • Really!!!

    You guys the polls are going up again in obama’s favor. This morning the statistics were tied. Even Pat Buchanon is finally saying that Obama looked more presidential during the debate than Mccain.

  • BeReal

    @Bird – Calling him Jim is a tactic used to let people realize that you are their equal. I loved it!!

    If Obama were white I would still vote for him..I was very proud of him last night!

    I’d say that he was saying JOHN is not his equal since he called him Jim like three times and that is not his name.

    Last night, it was clear that McCain couldn’t even look Obama in the eye. As a matter of fact, when McCain wasn’t speaking, his head was constantly held down. How does this forebode with being the leader of the United States? I guess McCain would be browbeaten by terrorist as well.

    McCain also had a proneness to explore, idly old talking points, while Obama proposed a new approach or change. McCain used the ancient, Republican’s tried and truth system of readily holding the attention of unintelligent America through incantation. Hey, I thought the black man was painted as angry and bitter in America? When in actuality, it was McCain who was wrathful, dismissive, unbending and exhibited intense animosity.

    Isn’t foreign policy McCain’s strength and solidity? Isn’t Obama considered the so-called underdog? Obama held his own, and McCain didn’t deeply gain my admiration. I didn’t see a maverick in McCain who reaches across the aisle in bi-partisanship last night.

    I’ll be honest and give McCain the win for foreign policy, and Obama the victory for the economy, but McCain’s staff isn’t celebrating by puffing and rotating Cubans. Do you want eight more years of polarizing presidency?

    I mean who comes up with these questions to ask the candidates?

  • Whatchaknoaboutdat?

    I know that nobody is really surprised at the out come because I’m not.

    O’bama 08!!!! I hope he doesn’t let us down!

  • Bus a Bus

    Even if it was a tie Obama won last night. This was supposed to be an easy victory for McCain because these topics were his specialty and Barack’s weakness. The only way McCain would benefit from this debate would be if he absolutely smashed Obama on every aspect but he didn’t do that.

  • sniper

    It was pretty even – there was no clear winner.

    How come the percentages don’t add up – “Fifty-one percent of those polled thought Obama did the better job in Friday night’s debate, while 38 percent said John McCain did better.”

    Does that mean 11% were undecided – that’s a huge % undecided percentage, no?

    That 11% may have felt there was no clear winner. I fall in that category.

  • sniper

    @ Bird

    I think the Moderator/Host’s name was Jim.

    Hence, Obama called John, Jim a few times, by mistake.

  • sniper

    @ Bird

    Yeah, I’m in that 11% too. There was no clear winner.

  • BeReal

    on MSNBC the undecided was higher than 11%

    I think since this was supposed to be a shoe in for McCain politically everyone felt he lost ground because of the debate.

    Also McCain’s attitude stunk…so that to me seemed priceless

  • sniper

    Yeah, I don’t understand why McCain didn’t look right at Obama. He’s a friggin war hero. – McCain should be able to confidently stare down Obama and feel much more confident, feel like he is a hero vs. a mere mortal, if you will…

    I guess McCain is letting the polls get into his head.

  • Rozza♥

    First – let me say I am a big Obama supporter. With that said, I think Obama needs to beef up his national security agenda. He seemed kinda shaky and I could tell he was getting irritated with how patronizing McCain was to him.

    McCain came off as a little smarmy and condescending, and that went against him in the end. Obama definitely won in the domestic policy/economy issue, but he needs to ensure his temperment stays even. He can’t let McCain fluster him, because that is the only way he can get ahead of Obama.

    It works against him to keep Palin under wraps and not even let her participate in the post-debate wrap-up. Biden was everywhere, and she was no where (like her bridge). McCain is probably fearful that every time she opens her mouth, stupidity tumbles out. But we can’t get too confident about the VP debate next week – she may be stupid, but she has some of the dirtiest folks in politics behind her, and she could make Biden go off on a rant and look like he needs meds.
