    McCain seems nervous. Obama is solid.

    if you give a half percent cut to someone who makes a million dollars it will be more moeny then if you give a three percent cut to someone making fifty thousand.

    Apparently John McCain did not see Palin's interview with Katy Couric...Maverick she is not.. What she is is in over her head.

    I am not surprised you cannot see a hit from McCain.Can we all be objective for once instead of always leaning towards Obama?

    McCain said Ireland's tax rate was 11%.

    It's 12.5%. Who's advising him? + Ireland is in a technical recession.

    I'm an accountant from Europe – quite worrying.

    Crazy McCain.

    Please do because the voters are not buying it – Please Schenider tell the CNN/Liberal viewers that McCain is another Bush term!

    As he should. Obama has been making better points, and making McCain flop on his positions real time during the debate.

    There is great need to work this from the bottom up, and end the devestation of top down, trickle down, voodod economics. Obama's plan to reinvigorate 95 % of families who earn under $250k is inspiring.

    Let me first start off by saying that the responses on this website seem to trend to the left when clearly the country is divided on the presidential campaign. So, obviously, CNN lacks middle of the road and to the right voters.

    Second, I can honestly say I am better off finacially then I was 8 years ago, mainly because I was still in college 8 years ago. Nonetheless, I was smart enough to choose a field that was going to continue to grow-the medical field. I believe my finances have nothing to do with who is president-whether its a democrat or republican. You all are duped on a two party system.

    Third, I am so angry about the bailout and the morons who took out these mortgage loans they cannot repay. I chose to buy an affordable home and determined my budget ahead of time. I was smart enough to avoid a loan with fluctuating rates and chose a reputable loan provider. My husband and I based our loan on one income so that if one of us did happen to lose our job we would still be ok financially. I am not just mad at the individuals who were taken in by the predatory lenders but by the individuals who had no business buying the $300,000 home to keep up with the Joneses. They instead should have purchased the $150,000 home. With that said, I want to know why I should bail out those individuals who cannot pay their own bills. When magically I can pay all mine, and ghast on time.

    To no one's surprise, Obama is whipping McCain on substance and the issues, but he does need to settle down and let McCain finish his line of bs. He's interrupting too often. McCain is presenting an image of patient maturity. I would like to see that infamous temper be aroused. He must have taken valium or something stronger for anger management purposes.

    McCain has poor judgement it showed at the beginning of the war and his decision to suspend his campaign. Looks like we have an candidate in McCain that can not make clear decisions under pressure. Off the wall decisions can cause us more problems.
