OXFORD, Mississippi (CNN) - Both McCain and Obama support including Georgia and others into NATO, at the same time saying that they don't want a new Cold War. Both of them are portraying Russia as a greater threat than we've been regarding them for a while...but they both insist they don't want that new cold war. They both agree on Russia, but it doesn't all add up.
My comment do not have anything to do with the subject. I just whant to know why Mccain will not look a Obama when he directs the comments at him like Obama does look at him.
McCain just said – who should be the president of the U.S.
Is it me or is the entire debate focused on war and security?? Aren't those supposed points of strength for McCain? Seems somewhat media biased.
In my opinion the idea behind that is to get Georgia and other countries as allies so that Russia will chill out and be less agressive. Nobody knows how well that will work though, or what Russia's true intentions are.
Bill; Where is Senator McCain's FLAG lapel??? Is it still an issue with the Republicna;s now that he does't have one. BTW Senator Obama is wearing one
MCAIN WINS DEBATE !!! NOT EVEN CLOSE
Russia is a very real threat. As a wife to a navyman I know that while we've been wasting our money and depleting our forces over in Iraq...russia has been building up their military and doing it heavily and quickly.
So yes we must watch out with Russia...
by the way Obama is right until we get respected around the world noone will respect us, or take us seriously.
McCain keeps saying Obama doesn't understand this and that.. fact is we under the logic of Obama and do not follow the logic of McCain.. I think McCain is falling apart,,, Obama is killing him on National Security.. this was supposed to be his baby.
McCain spoke up 3 days after the Georgian invasion by Russia and said to the American people " We all are Georgians".
Obama said NOTHING... then said he'd have to research the issue...then finally 1 week later issues a response saying the exact same thing McCain said....he has no foreign affairs experience and would obviously not be ready to make good on the spot decisions. The world will not wait for Obama to make up his mind
The more McCain says Obama does not understand, does not get it, it really shows how condescending and arrogant MCcain is and still is even after all his work experience! Imagine this condescending and arrogance attitude to get people cross over!
People are really tired of this condescending and arrogance that simply does not reflect who we are! We are so much better than this!!!
I know I don't want a "cold" or "hot" war with Russia. They might be able to kick our butts now.
Detente IS complicated...and that's perhaps why it seems beyond the grasp of Republicans...
You can say what you say but you are what you are.....this is in reference to the US allowing Georgia & Ukraine into NATO. We can not afford to go through another war with such small countries, especially these ones. We will not allow them into the UN b/c we do not want to go to war with Russia & China.
"They both agree on Russia, but it doesn't all add up."
In what respect, Billy?
What was with McCain not allowing Obama to retort at the end of the topic and just going on and on about nothing to prevent Obama from correcting the lie that was tossed out? That is inconsiderate, rude, and uncivilized like McCain would eat with his elbows on the table or something. Grow up presidential candidate.
mcbush thnks that by knowing a few names in Russia, that gives him experience is he kidding??
he is a joke
oh my lord,
BUSH now 72 .............put this guy to sleep
Because the falcons suck!
Huge point drawing connection between national economic security and the inability to enable a powerful military. I don't think McCain will be able to refute that well
McCain, Bush and Clinton really caused problems with Russia when they supported an independent Kosovo. I was Army Special Forces and I served in that area. Kosovo belongs to the Serbs. It’s like the Mexicans in Mexico decided to take Texas and the UN let them.
The war monger is at it again ... ready to go to war with Russia which has over 15,000 nuclear; while we can barely keep up with Iraq or focus on Afghanistan.
If he gets into the White House, WWIII is a guarantee. What a lunatic!
Come’n November 4th gets here soon so we can get this election over with and concentrate on our animals Planet channel. It’s more fun to watch animals they’re funny.
It's very sad that in the one area these leaders agree, they are so badly and tragically wrong. Their strong support for the foolish and devious administration of Saakashvili and their demands that Ossetia and Abkhazia be turned over to the Georgian wolves after 16 years of de facto independence is troubling, and their approval of Georgia and Ukraine joining NATO is dangerous and wrong.
