Was it just me or did the candidates not answer the questions they were asked?
They would give a one-sentence nod then quickly move onto their pre-planned spiel. I would hear a question from the undecided audience, think, “Ooooo, that’s a good question!” and lean closer to the TV with my ears inclined to listen to their answers, then whammo, a pre-packaged re-hash of what they’ve already said time and time again. UGH.
I guess it is too much of a risk to allow the candidates to venture off onto honest and uncharted waters. I know for me I am looking for some passionate, honest, straightforward conversation. But perhaps the problem lies in me. Perhaps I am naive in wanting such dialogue. Perhaps I am the only one who is bored and disheartened simply listening to week-old-re-hashed-politic-rhetoric-leftovers. Quite frankly, I was bored. There seemed to be no passion, you know?
I was really hoping for more to help me decide, but was left wanting.
I could not believe it when McCain referred to Obama (who was in the room) as “That One” as he nudged his head towards him.
Perhaps three-times a charm? I guess we’ll see.
