Schneider: McCain scores points on experience

CNN

Watch: Sen. McCain outlines differences between his plan for the presidency and Sen. Obama's plan.

OXFORD, Mississippi (CNN) - McCain, in talking about Afghanistan and Pakistan, is drawing on his vast experience for the first time in this debate, and it really sounds very convincing.

    You need to give information, not personal experience. The people need more than hope this time around.

    I can't stand McCain right now because the point is that he refuses to understand we are in a pointless war, the money that we get taken out for our taxes is going to the war and all that money that were spending could go to us rather than the Iraq. Just because McCain has been to war and thank god that he came back home safely, but does NOT make him qualified to run a country. We need someone with the right Judgment! Plain and simple.

    I am from India and I know something about subcontinental politics.
    Maybe it doesn't seem so but Obama's knowledge about this matter seems more accurate.

    Practice does not make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect. Experience, being like the concept of practice, counts for little when it is repeated failed policy. McCain/Bush policies are failed policies.

    The missing piece in Sen. McCain's agrument is wisdom. His record shows that he has voted with Pres. Bush not against him.

    For an "old guy" McCain held is own, used his vast experience and made Obama start shaking his finger and drinking water. You go McCain!

    McCain's statement about inviting a second holocaust is inflammatory and shows he is not fit to be Commander in Chief.

    Schneider Obama has made many positive and substantive points
    and you have failed to acknowledge them. Your bias is showing.
    Next time have Roland Martin also do blogging

    McCain's experience has not solved the problems, so his experience means nothing. We can all talk but action speaks louder than words. McCain has proven his record, nothing has changed for the better.

    McCain is stuck in the past. His mind is not even on progressing the future. He keeps going back Regan, Nixon, etc. We need him to talk about the present.

    Business 101. Keep your enemies close. J. Mac doesn't understand this basic tactic in the game of strategy.

    I feel McCain doesn't realize that this war does affect our economy in some way. McCain needs to wake up and get a dose of reality.

    He scores points on this one only if you agree with him, he sounds unconvincing and entrenched if you don't.

    convincing??? LOL who the heck thinks he sounds convincing? Sounds like a Lier that puts campaign first, not America. This crazy old man is now way on Gods green earth is getting my vote.... He is a lier and the author of lies is Satan!

    It's hard to tell who you're stroking for Schneider.

    Mr. McCain's views are war like, and very pre-cold war.

    at least biden has experience and can step in whereas the woman whose name i refuse to say cannot.

    What experience? He only keeps saying "what Senator Obama does not understand as he tells stories and calls out names! Don't worry we won't talk first we'll just bomb 'em all! Does this make sense, America?
