I think that it is time that McCain said something because he is not bush nor is he even close to that so it is about time...I think that he has obama wondering and on his toes which he should be..

i think this is a side that mccain has been wanting to show and frankly I've been tired of him trying to fit into this caricature act that his campaign has been pressing on him

Ah, McCain is just agitated that he is running a distant second to Obama...and I am not saying this in defense of Obama. Frankly, both of them are rather infurating to me. Obama and McCain are both taking some cheap pot shots at each other and it's extremely frustrating to listen to the two of them. There is Obama who literally stutters through every response. "Um, um, look, um, what is, um, most important is, um, the worst financial crisis, uh, in all of American, um, history. We're going to have to, um, work together, and um, uh, work together in a way that, uh, doesn't reflect badly on the economy." STOP IT! Okay, I am off topic here, and I apologize for that. Honestly though, this whole debate is an extension of the smear campaign that these two have been maintaining in all of their commercials. McCain does seem agitated, but I don't think it's anything more than an act. People have called him "wooden" and I think he is trying to be more aggressive to show a different side of himself.

So far I'm impressed. McCain should of took this approach a long time ago. He really has Oboma stumbling over his words now. You should stand up for your beliefs and policies and call the other person out for what they are saying. Don't just stand back and let the other side run the show and I think McCain fell into that trap of now being the aggressive canidate. Good for him - if he is going down - at least go down fighting.

oh, im suprised by your response because I've only heard this about Obama--myself believing the same about him, but in the case of McCain, I think those in charge of his campaign had a lot to do with it keeping him on only certain talking points
