1960 Presidential Debate Revisited

I watched the debate between Obama and McCain and walked away wondering with all of McCain’s references to history he seemed to have missed one very important history lesson and that was Nixon’s shifty eyes in the 1960 presidential debate. Shifty eyes sunk Nixon in that debate, not his words and that is exactly what happened with McCain.  McCain lost the debate for that reason alone, shifty eyes.  McCain’s facial expressions alone did not inspire and screamed he is not a leader.




  1. You’re absolutely right. He appeared to be an angry old man who arrogantly wouldn’t look at his opponent. Its said.

  2. Obama clearly won. He looked and sounded like a true presidential statesman, while McCain looked old, flustered and sounded belligerent. Not once did he give Obama the respect of looking at him directly while he was being spoken to, and I believe this disrespect speaks volumes about how McCain will conduct his foreign and domestic policies: The same disrespect Bush has shown the world and the American people for the last 8 years.

  3. We are at a very critical moment in America’s history. Our government has deceived us and we have another leader trying to come in with the same stubborn, arrogance and controlling mentality. We cannot go back to the old way McCain.

  4. Appearances and tone mean everything.

  5. Senator Obama did what he has been doing all along. He offers hope to young and old Americans. He proved he will make a remarkable leader. All these months I have been writing blogs, sharing opinions about him. Now, people are seeing more and more.
    The answer he would have liked to give about the economy is change will come from the people. America will have this young leader who will encourage hope and inspiration. The people will work for him. Many of us already have. There are many of his followers who have never been involved in politics but, he has inspired them. We just need a good leader. Ask the young. Many of them are willing to do more for their country because of him. They obviously see something others have been refusing to see. It is time we listened to the next generation. When times are difficult the people need to get behind a leader and he is the leader that reachers across the races and generations.

  6. Senator Obama proved he was the better man for the job. If I wanted a history lesson I would have gone back to college. Mc Cain told us his age and mentality by not answering diret question without a history lesson.He alked more about Obama than he did about was he thought or planned to do for the country.
