Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way
Bragg: She started down the Gibson/Other Interview road there for a minute...seems to have recovered...Phew! (For now)...
Kimberly: Thank you, John McCain...
Lynne: I pretty much disagree with most of the McCain-Palin policies, but she's not doing too bad for someone who just got tossed into it five weeks ago. Biden RAN for president - twice, right?
Dontre: why doesn't he...Read more »
Kimberly: i think he needs to tighten up and collect his thoughts
You never say you agree!!
Say that THEY agree with YOU!!!
Lynne: Biden just came really close to scoring a great point...but, oops, went on too long...
Bragg: Impossible to defend the tax break for Exxon, et. al.
Adrian: As a blue blooded American, I like what Sarah is saying...Read more »
Bragg: No point. Just makes me laugh whenever I see it. (He actually recovered from it very well). I was only bringing it up because someone joked that he was drunk. Just a little levity.
Lynne: It's all about expectations. Palin's doing well - so it makes her performance seem that much better since expectations were so low
Dontre: I agree, Lynne
Lynne: Biden is also doing...Read more »
Dontre: And George Bush asked a blind man to take off his glasses.

Kimberly: oh god!
Bragg: "Stand up, Chuck! Let 'em see ya"!

Dontre: One doesn't only reference those interviews, one looks at her speech, diction, the few things she HAS allowed the public to know. . .they all show her to have spotty judgment. And, while you may try to ignore...Read more »
Lynne: Uh-oh, Biden is getting too wonky, he just lost me.

Emily: Cram session a success!
Lynne: I'm middle class, too!
Bragg: She is intelligent, folks . She has won statewide office.
Dontre: she hasn't shown herself to be that intelligent...Read more »
Meg: I'm sorry, when I hear Biden talk, I feel like I'm in college again and when I hear Palin talk I feel like I'm listening to someone who won a radio contest. I'm bored. Is that wrong?...Read more »
Bragg: the point she makes about small businesses and their tax burden under an obama administration is a key point that mccain has so far seemed unable (or unwilling) to make.
Dontre: She does a better job at making McCain's points....Read more »
Bragg: isn't that untrue? won't EVERYONE'S capital gains taxes go up?
