Goofy Smile. Thru almost the entire Presidential debate tonite, John McCain had a bizarre, goofy smile on his face while listening to Obama speak. Obama, by contrast, was serious, and his facial expressions were appropriate. McCain's were very inappropriate, so inappropriate, indeed, that you have to wonder what is going on inside his deranged mind.
Obama is a pussyboy, and you have to wonder how ardently he will fite for us when he won't fite for himself. Time and again, McCain insulted Obama, saying he "doesn't understand" this, that, and the other. Obama should have snapped back, after no later than the third time, "I understand perfectly well, and do not appreciate your attempt to make me out to be a moron."
Nor did Obama follow up McCain's assertion that Georgia should be admitted to NATO, to ask, "So, if Georgia is admitted to NATO, and Russia invades again, will you insist that NATO mobilize to send troops to Georgia to fite Russia? If so, don't you have any concern that Russia could cut off oil supplies to Europe, for instance, in the middle of winter, and even launch attacks all along its European frontiers? Might that lead to World War III, over a tiny country thousands of miles from the United States and right nextdoor to Russia with which the United States has had NO connection at any time in our entire history?" But he didn't.
When McCain talked about having been in this place or that place, and Obama not having been, Obama should have replied, "I haven't been to the Moon, but that doesn't mean I don't know about it. You don't have to travel to a place to understand it, and indeed if the particular places you see on a brief stop are not representative of the entirety, an in-person visit may actually mislead you. Especially is that the case if the local government stage-manages the visit and keeps you from talking to people, like dissidents, who have a different view from that which the government wants you to accept."
But most importantly, McCain's demeanor, constantly smiling goofily when Obama spoke, was bizarre and should have been unsettling to the audience.
