The Blame Game; McCain v. Obama, with your host, Tom Brokaw

The Presidential debate last night was in no way influential toward my voting decision. Perhaps being at college has made me a bit more open minded about voting for a candidate as an individual rather than simply choosing a candidate based on the party that they represent. But I’m stumped. Both candidates have strong platforms, or so it seems, and I am partial to certain issues. But the debate last night did not help clear up any questions at all. While John McCain was too concerned about pointing his finger at “that one”, both candidates make the important issues more confusing by blaming one another and giving misleading facts and numbers. I am absolutely sick of hearing the phrases, “just check my record,” and “my record shows that…”

I would like to know how many American voters really check the candidates’ records. Instead, it’s debates like this one that confuse and manipulate in order to sway voters opinions. This really concerns me. If Americans vote according to their party’s candidate, or if they only rely on debates or television news rather than really checking in to the background of each candidate, then their opinion becomes biased at one point or another. The media, each candidate, or a particular party already have biased news and will do anything for votes. Anything. But if there is only a constant mudslinging between parties and candidates, then no one hears what’s really important to each candidate, no one hears a true plan of action, and no one hears sincerity in the messages. The title of this debate might as well been ‘The Blame Game’ hosted by Tom Brokaw.

    Check this out, man, that sh*tty, transparent attempt to make Obama seem like “not-one-of-us-Americans” only shows what a latent racist he is, that he would try to drive a wedge for no reason: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWSRBQQCfUI
