I'm going to "force" myself to watch because I enjoy Biden; but the thought of listening to "Fingernails-on-a-Chalkboard" Palin for such an extended period of time is not pleasing.


That's what closed captioning and the mute button is for. It may prove more entertaining to just watch all the facial expressions and gestures without the distraction of sound. Wink

Here are Bidens opening remarks, or at least these are very similiar to his opening remarks...

Quote:
I believe that most Americans would agree on the problems this country faces and which the next administration must solve. They include the need, once again, for an economy that works. The economy today is in very, very bad shape, the highest unemployment since the Great Depression, 50% higher than when the President took office, raging inflation. The latest wholesale price index is once again raising the specter of double-digit inflation. The purchasing power of the average American has slipped so much that it's now the equivalent of the purchasing power in 1965. It's not getting better, it's getting worse. All the leading indicators now point downward. Stock investors are losing confidence. Over $50 billion of value has disappeared from the stock market in less than a month. We need a government that works, we need a government that cares, and once again, we have to get back at work on education, on health, on housing, on the environment, on energy. And we need a foreign policy that once again reflects the values and the beliefs of the American people. This will take leadership, and we need leadership, too. The Republican administration, the Republican Party has had eight years to solve these problems. All of them have gotten worse. The Republican ticket does not offer new plans for their solution but is engaged in a frantic effort to defend the past. This nation desperately needs new leadership."


I have edited these remarks to eliminate any reference to who said them or when they were said.
But I am willing to bet that Bidens remarks are going to be very similiar to these.
After the debate, I will tell you who made this statement and when it was said.

I interrupt this impotant topic with a REAL emergency...

Mysteryman has not made his football picks for this week, and the non-republicans are rapidly overrunning the Elephant followers.

(and this will mean something in december...)

i know who said them, when they were said and where you got 'em. in any case, none of that renders the opinion meaningless.

Why bother? It's Walter Mondale. Rush read this on his show today.

Nothing like an original thought on the Republican side of the fence these days, nope

Some folks here on A2K are quite good at doing that. Sorry for taking liberties with you post.

@Cycloptichorn,
Since Rush isnt on in this area, I have no idea what he did or didnt say.
Even if he was, I wouldnt listen to him.

But, if he did say it, are you going to say he is wrong?
After all, EVERY dem candidate for Pres or VP has expressed those sentiments during their campaigns

I'm participating in MediaCurve/HCD Research's online debate watcher's survey. They're supposed to be feeding us questions for the duration of the debate. If you all are interested in what they ask, I'll relay the questions here for your responses too.

If you have a broadband connection you can watch it streamed on CSPAN.

@Butrflynet,
Streams affect my budget.

I will digest it after the fact in small even doses as I always do, but updates help me know where to go peek...

@McGentrix,
You say that like it's a bad thing...

Can you improve on your descriptive skills, my Republican friend?
