John McCain picking Sarah Palin was a bad move!

ANSmith

As we all are well aware of, John McCain announced about a week or two ago that Sarah Palin, former governor of Alaska, would be his VP nominee. At first I thought this move was genius on his part: Hillary is out, so why not pick a WOMAN as your VP?! Then you'll get all the Clinton supporters. However, the more I find out and research, the more I realize that this was one of the dumbest moves he could make! Especially in terms of PR. P1. Let's start with experience. Palin served from 1992-19...

With John McCain, the highest chance of World War III will be upon us.

Warmongering... John McCain seems to be receiving this adjective more and more lately. Throughout this round I will prove that John McCain is a warmonger but more importantly, he will give us the greatest chance to be a part of the 3rd World War (which is obviously a bad thing)... ========== Beginning with quotes from John McCain: Questioner- "President Bush has talked about us staying in Iraq for 50 years" John McCain- "Maybe a hundred. That be fine with me..." John McCain- "We wer...

McCain is running for Bush's 3rd term, specifically with war in Iraq.

Clearly this debate is centered around the concept that John McCain is running for Bush's third term. Since the beginning, McCain's tactics and promises for the future (specifically in Iraq) are mostly parallel to those of the current Pres. George W. Bush. As I will make apparent in the rest of the arguement. John McCain says the economy is fundamentally sound. John McCain doesn't think that 47 million people without health insurance is a crisis. John McCain wants to privatize Social Security...

John McCain's Wicked Huge Let Down

JTSmith
Ragnar_Rahl

Even before this election season hit off, I was hoping a for a McCain nomination. I have been a McCain fan ever since i looked into him. I had high hopes for him when he announced his candidacy for president again. I thought that this was his time! I was quickly dissappointed though, and let me tell you why. John McCain quickly began to run a very dirty campaign that was fueled on bias, twisted words, and straight lies not straight talk. Mitt took the first swing with his anti-mccain ads, b...

Obama should have accepted McCain's request for town-hall debates

oboeman

I argue that Senator Obama should have accepted Senator McCain's general request for town-hall debates. Seemingly, one could argue that the role of government (and of course Obama and McCain are vying for its top spot) is to do what is best for its country/society. Therefore, what must be determined is how one figures out what is indeed best for the country. There are often many opposing viewpoints provided by numerous people and parties. However, for the government to truly determine what is...

John McCain will make a better president than Barack Obama

alvinthegreat

As many of you may know, Obama has just captured the Democratic Nomination for president. Also, as many of you may know, McCain captured the Republican Nomination for president back in February. Thus, the stage is set for one of the most important presidential race in recent history. Now, that the candidates have been finally decided, I strongly advocate that McCain will be a better president than Barack Obama in terms of experience, national policy, and foreign policy. ========= On to th...

John McCain is the next George W. Bush.

DanTheLawyer

This is 4 rounds so that both sides have a chance to give an opening statement before debating. John McCain and George W. Bush... What can I say? Both in love with the Iraq War? Check. Both infringe our freedoms? Check. Both treated better because of their fathers? Check. (McCain wasn't killed off as a P.O.W. because his captors knew his father was a high-ranking officer) Both will be/are complained about but still voted for? Check. Both have/will run the country on fear? Check. I wil...

John McCain (Pro) vs. Hillary Clinton (Con)

littlelacroix
kykrebs

I wanted to start this debate because I believe that in a fight, McCain would beat Clinton. Now although I personally believe that in an election, McCain would still win, but I'm talking about a physical fight. Boxing, superpowers, anything, McCain would still win! Hillary is small, and I don't want to degrade women, but she's not capable of reaching the potential of a man. Many women have this capacity, but not Hillary. Plus, if McCain were ever to be losing against Hillary, he would pull ou...
