McCain came out fighting but it didn’t work. It was a mismatch. Obama was poised and presidential. McCain was angry and/or irritated. McCain’s best line of the last 6 months was, “Senator Obama, I’m not George Bush”. But the line fell flat because it seemed forced. This what Obama did with that line:
True … but you did vote with Bush 90% of the time,” says the announcer.
“Tax breaks for big corporations and the wealthy. But almost nothing for the middle class — same as Bush. Keep spending ten billion a month in Iraq while our own economy struggles — same as Bush.”
The spot, titled “90 Percent,” contains shots of McCain rolling his eyes, blinking and looking like a deer in the headlights — as sure a suggestion as any that the Obama campaign thought they won last night’s debate as much (if not more) on style as substance.
The ad will be airing across the country on national cable beginning today.
P.S. Bob Schieffer did a great job!
