    On a completely different note, several members of the Iraq Veterans Against the War will try to enter the hall where the debate is being held. They want to ask the candidates questions (re: the Iraq occupation) and they are going to get arrested if they can’t get in. One of the Vets participating is Liam Madden. I know him and he’s going to be one of the IVAW’s going to try and get in. IF I hear anything else I’ll let you all know.

    IVAW to Candidates: Hear us out at the final debate

    Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) will lead non-violent demonstrations at Hofstra University prior to the final presidential debate Oct. 15 to demand two IVAW members be allowed to ask each candidate one question.

    Should IVAW’s demands not be met in full by 7 p.m., members of the organization are willing to risk arrest by entering the debate to have their voices heard by the candidates.

    IVAW intends to “force the issue” that servicemembers and veterans are not being heard or cared for by our leaders. The next president should make caring for our wounded military a top domestic priority, in addition to ending the war in Iraq.

    “Right now there are veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan going homeless, hungry, into debt and contemplating suicide,” said Matthis Chiroux, an IVAW member from Brooklyn. “But the government says we don’t have the money to care for those war heroes, so the V.A. continues its mission underfunded and understaffed. But now we’ve found almost a trillion to bail out banks? Where’s the humanity in this?”

    IVAW is currently working to contact debate moderator Bob Schieffer to make its demands known.

    “I watched the first debate the other night, for which the topic was supposed to be ‘foreign policy’, yet it took 34 minutes before the words ‘Iraq’ or ‘Veteran’ left either candidates’ mouths,” said Kris Goldsmith, an IVAW member from Long Island. “I’m not convinced that either Obama or McCain care about what is most important to today’s military and veterans. IVAW is committed to changing that.”

    Let’s give them the support they deserve!!!

    Is this the best McCain can come up with?

    • ctrenta on October 16, 2008 at 04:47
  43. “Throwing money at the problem” = “let’s starve the schools”

    “Higher test scores” = education on the same old sack-o’-shit grounds…

    • ctrenta on October 16, 2008 at 04:51

    … it’s good that Schieffer’s been focusing on domestic issues. Last time I check the polls, more people trust Obama over McCain on domestic issues. Obama’s gliding into home. This election is his… at least on paper (knock on wood).  

  44. and they aren’t popular.

    • ctrenta on October 16, 2008 at 04:55

  53. It’s ok to raise the associations, right?

  54. Under Pressure from Brit-

    These 27 people were undecided.  I chewed them out myself.  How many of yoy changed your minds?  4.  For who?  Obama.  Obama.  Obama.  Obama.  Brit, I’d have to say Obama won tonight.

  55. Presidential Debate!  See you next time, in 2012. Until then, keep the rapacious capitalism going, and keep smiling….

  56. It was a draw so Obama won.

    McCain didn’t nail Obama on abortion.
