Last night's Saddleback forum was the first time McCain and Obama have "met" on the same stage. If you didn't watch it, try to see the repeats over the next couple of days b/c it was very informative. It is very clear why Obama is avoiding debates as much as possible, especially the town hall type forum. McCain was clearly the winner last night and it wasn't even close.
On life, Obama fumbled big time trying to make a joke when asked when does life begin saying that was above his pay grade to determine. McCain was unequivocal, conception.
On evil, Obama put the US in the same category as Darfur and didn't even discuss terrorism or al Qaeda. McCain was very clear who was the agent of evil in our time.
On taxes, if you or your small business makes more than $250K a year, Obama let you know that you will be paying more taxes under his administration. McCain was very clear that taxes need to be lowered.
On faith based groups, Obama said they should not be allowed to keep their convictions if they receive federal funding. McCain was very clear that no strings should be attached.
The one things I will give Obama credit for is his unequivocal definition of what it meant to be a Christian to him. McCain was equally as clear.
McCain needs to get his stories out more about his time in the prison camp. The two stories he told last night about sacrificing his freedom for his code of conduct and friends as well as his story about the Christian guard say so much about the man he is and everyone needs to know that side of him.
