Loser ass charlie gibson just kept bringing up $250,000.00, and calling it middle clas LOL, and arguing Obama about it because he's so concerned with his capital gains tax. What a waste of time and a shameful debate. I hope Gibson and Stefowhoever careers were worth this disgrace!

Jillness: 250,00 is not middle class. Savvy had a good post about middle class a few days ago...

"I'm sorry, did he just say "make sure criminals don't have guns?" How? How will he do that?" He did work on legislation for Chicago and their high crime rate. I don't know his details, but it wouldn't surprise me if he learned a lot about how to do so back in Illinois. One of my friends said the other day, "Criminals get guns because they rob people who have guns." This made me think. I think that Hillary said it very clearly, but it is Obama's stance as well, that different areas need different gun laws. Chicago is not Springfield, etc.

Auntie, your comments about Michelle are completely baseless. You have absolutely no idea how much her total student loan debt was, or the interest rate that was applied to it. You can't compare it to another person's situation unless you have that basic information. Also, you won't be robbed by the democrats. You have ALREADY been robbed by Republicans that have already spent that tax money that the next president will have to supply. I am really just so tired of people like McCain saying "the democrats will tax you!", and pretending like they haven't been taking our money in VAST AMOUNTS for the past 8 years. It is Republican policy that will force the next president to raise taxes! Does anyone else find it interesting the constant reference to $250,000 a year income? Quick poll...do people on this website think that $250,000 a year for an individual salary is "middle class"?

Category: PA Primary Voting began on 4/17/2008 Voting ends on 4/18/2008 A.Clinton convinced me to vote for her. - 53 (12%) B.Obama convinced me to vote for him. - 160 (36%) C.I'm still undecided. - 26 (6%) D.I had already picked my candidate and nothing will sway me. - 140 (31%) E.I watched the Penguins playoff game. - 57 (13%) F.I couldn't miss American Idol. - 6 (1%) G.What election? - 7 (2%) This thread is about last nights debate and so was my comment. Above is what the other half of this state thinks so far from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

Skinnymarie: How does Hillary not talk about the issues? She ALWAYS talks about the issues. That's one of her strengths. She has plenty of weaknesses but that isn't one of them.

I watched the debate last night and could not believe how horrible the questions were. Flag Pins? Does Reverend Wright love America? Are you kidding me? Peter Jennings probably turned over in his grave.

Poizenisxkandee said i recently was accepted into college but there are many issues my friends and i face, paying for it and why certain people got in or not, why this year was so competitive. Hey, Michelle Obama was complaining about having to repay her student loans and she earns how much a year? If they hadn't had Rezko run his deal though, maybe they could afford their student loans. My daughter repaid hers in l5 years on a salary of under $60,000 a year for four people, two working AND owning a modest house. So I don't want to hear Michelle Obama griping about student loans. LibertySugar said: I like the idea of a profits windfall tax. Not if you have taken a chance and invested money and then get a good return. This is a nutty tax and will keep people from investing. Say you bought a bond from a city that's raising money, then in ten years, when the bond matures, you cash it in and you've made a good return on your investment. What happens? The Democrats take a huge cut of your profits. So do you invest again? Not if you're going to be "robbed" by the Democrats. So now, cities and towns can't find anyone to purchase their bonds and the cities and towns can't make improvements and then what? Their infrastructure crumbles and who's to blame? The Democrats and a profits windfall tax. NOT a good idea, not at all.

mumuguy, I beg to differ. I am a PA voter. I originally wanted to vote for Edwards, well I don't get that choice now. I was tied between Obama and Clinton. Originally I didn't want to vote for him because of the lack of experience, but the more and more I hear her not address the issues and talk about the truths, the more I might vote for Obama. You also can't say that just because Philly like Clinton doesn't mean there isn't the REST OF THE STATE. The people of Pittsburgh really don't like Rendel, so if he is supporting Clinton then I would rather not vote for her.

As bad as the February debate was, that was far better than the crapfest that was yesterday's debate. Even if in February, they spent a 1/3 of the time discussing health care, at least they discussed pertinent issues and tried to sell themselves. Yesterday was a mockery of democracy and a blatant insinuation that the American populace at large cares more about tabloid style gossip than actual politics. I for one don't care about lapel pins or some dude that bombed the Pentagon when Obama was a child. Am I the only one that felt the debate was a waste of time because Hillary's attacks were a desperation maneuver that didn't work and that Obama was on the defensive pretty much the whole time? Obama could've sealed the deal if he performed better, but I believe Hillary will win PA because too many people are ignorant of the issues and eat up gossip as if it were gospel.

Harmony- I think there isn't a lot to debate regarding what the candidates said because they didn't get enough time to discuss a lot of the real issues- judicial appointments, the decline of the dollar, that sort of thing. Instead we heard about lapel pins. Truly, the most pressing issue of our decade. :oy:

One of the funniest things in this whole sham of a debate was that the audience was told not to clap. Then towards the end the audience got so mad at Charlie that they started to BOO him. HAHAHAHA, Gotta love Philly they keeps it REAL!

YEA it's pretty crazy hotstuff. I only read like the first 100 comments, but they aren't even really arguing. They are just all mad at ABC.

Wow I just took a look at it. Basically everyone (Obama and Hillary fans) ALL are appalled by this debate.

i feel like by the time it got to issues that people want to hear about and would want to vote for a candidate that felt the same way about (education, energy, etc); time was up.

Here's the ABC feedback link if anyone wishes to tell the network what they thought of the debate: http://abcnews.go.com/Site/page?id=3271346 I don't usually, but I couldn't keep my mouth shut this time.

ugh so now in a minute and a half each, theyre talking about why they think they should be elected; something they should have been debating the last hour and a half. maybe i just dont like the way debates are run, and its not the candidates themselves.

OMG, I watched the whole debate and this was the worst piece of shit journalism I have EVER seen in my life! You have to check out the 8,000 and counting posts on www.abcnews.com. On other sites they are trying to get Charles and Stefanowhoever fired by this weekend. What a disgrace! Shame on you ABC. YUCK!

I just finished watching it. I agree with Jillness- the blue audience was strange. I was disappointed in the debate. The first 45 minutes or so seemed so useless- I want to hear the nuts and bolts of what they plan to do to make our country better. Not these strange, junk politics questions. It felt like Obama spent a great deal of time trying to defend positions he shouldn't have had to defend in the first place- because the issues have already been thoroughly addressed. The flag pin issue? Seriously? Overall, I was disappointed with ABC. I think previous debates have asked more challenging and engaging questions. And I think the selection of George Stephanopoulos was an error on their part, as well.

yes we are dependent on foreign oil, but i remember reading somewhere we have more than enough oil domestically, that we dont need that much dependence. and my physics teacher was telling us that he read that corn oil is being used well thats great, and i do support other types of fuel (my prom bus ran on corn oil, and i find corn oil or solar energy good alternatives), but he explained something i didnt think of, that growing more corn and ripping up corn fields to process it makes more of an issue and that it would also make prices of corn as a food go up. i agree with needing to decreasing demand in oil, less cars. i support HOV lanes and carpool systems, having large corporations implement a gym and bike racks and things that workers need (dry cleaning, copying, supermarket) in their offices, such as the molasky center here in las vegas. though their building is an entirely different issue.
