OXFORD, Mississippi (CNN) - McCain is saying that if you meet without preconditions you are legitimizing them.
Obama, on the other hand, said he would not impose preconditions, but he would insist on preparation.
It's a very complicated argument.
mcain is a loser.
Why he tried to tell a story. No one wants to hear about story.
If we are going to bring peace to the world, we must talk to anyone and everyone. War is not working for anyone.
is schneider a brother to mcbush??
Do you notice that Obama is wearing a flag pin and mccain is not...huh, how unpatriotic John....
Obama never changed his position.. . .you just haven't been listening!
Obama has said the same thing for months – quit spinning DL
McCain is playing politics with his response on 9-11.
Yes, changing his mind again again again...
Why is McCain not looking at him? Why? Is he afraid to look him in the eye? All John is doing is spinning yarns about Regan and 2/3 decades ago.....get up to date buddy!
He has not changed his position. He covered this in 19 other debates, all of which some people obviously missed. He has been 100% consistent on this straight through.
I agree too! LOL had to think about it a little
It's only complicated if all you're trying to do is filter out every positive for McCain, Schneider. I wouldn't so readily admit you can't understand what was said.
There is a big difference between the words " preconditions" and " preparing" and I've heard Obama consistently say that he would meet with the President of Iran with NO PRECONDITIONS.....
The debate is getting ugly. He said, he said. Who is right? CNN please give me some fact check.
Only complicated if you're a dolt. Obama is very clear and McCain is not listening.
As usual McBush is dead wrong when it comes to this. Good job Obama!! NOW FINISH HIM!! FLAWLESS VICTORY!!
IT'S NOT COMPLICATED!
STOP SPINNING FOR MCLAZYLEFTEYE!
YOU PRACTICE DIPLOMACY FIRST. IF THAT DOESN'T WORK YOU GET YOUR ALLIES TO SIDE WITH YOU THEN YOU KICK THE ENEMY'S BEHIND.
BUSH DID IT BACKWARDS AND MCCAIN IS TRYING TO LEGITIMIZE IRAQ!
i thought they were the same something that needs to happen before he meets with the leaders. so esseintally Obama is now saying yes their are steps before meeting with them.
I think it is always good to prepare and know who you are meeting with and what they stand for. That's called "doing your homework."
I am opposed to preconditions because itsimply means that if you don't play nice, I will take my toys and go home.
My question is........... if he has worked and done so much for so long...... where is the positive stuff and what has he accomplished.
Obama said he would meet without preconditions, but with preparations. That is not difficult. Where are you people from?
Obama did not change his position. He explained his position.
mcshame just said we are safer than we were on 9/11 but we are far from being safe did anyone catch that
Why? Because there's no difference between the two? They must prepare, not conform to some arbitrary rules and language.
