  • If he actually wants votes come Election Day, he needs to stay focused and give the American People positive specifics about his platform and not continue to bash his candidate. Both Republicans and Democrats agree that McCain has yet to stay positive and consistant during a debate.

  • Don't be angry... I read somewhere that when he gets angry He gets short and I think that had a lot to do with him calling Obama " that Guy" otherwise just anwser the question that is asked, both of them need to do that instead of answering some other thing that is on their agenda!!

  • Expose Obama's socialistic agenda and his lack of any real qualifications!!! Expose his plans for the redistribution of wealth such as his World Poverty Bill that he and Biden tried to push through the Senate---this would have taxed Americans .7% of the value of our GNP---TO GIVE IT TO THE UNITED NATIONS!!!! Yeah--he really wants to give the middle class a tax break. This crap that he wants a tax rate no more than under Reagan---doesn't he realize Reagan was in the process of lowering taxes--that takes a bit of time!!!!! If he wants to do that--that IS raising taxes to get it back up to that level.

  • I think McCain needs to show the American people that is nothing like Bush. He needs to layout his complete plan for the American people, plus make Obama answer questions that they American people have.

  • I like all of the previous answers!! Hard to add much more!! I do wish he would work on exposing Obama for what he really is. I wish he would point on point call him out on all of his lies and inconsistencies. He needs to expose how Obama's economic plans do not add up. Although, at this point, I don't think it matters much, because people obviously don't care about it, - I think McCain should call Obama out about his contributions to ACORN, his ties to Rev. Wright and other areas of controversy that speak to his character.

  • In my opinion....he shouldn't whine. The last debate I watched he started whining like a 3 year old. For the record, I typically vote republican. If he's going to whine to get his way...I'm not interested in listening to him. There was a point in which Obama was asked a question and answered it. Then McCain got a chance to answer and said something about Obama in his answer. After McCain finished his answer, Obama asked for a rebuttal. At which point McCain started in with "Well if he gets extra time, I expect extra time. We should get equal time....yada yada". Sounded like my boys fighting over who got more m&m's for crying out loud.

  • Here's one:

    DON'T FUCK IT UP! lol But seriously, if he really wants to come out on top with this debate...he needs to give us a better idea of what his plans are for this country. But honestly I don't care if he loses cuz I ain't vote'n for him! WOOHOO!

  • Focus on the economy and state that he WON'T be a maverick when it comes to our economy and our foreign defense policy and introduce a foreign relations policy that makes sense.

  • He needs to act Presidential instead of a 2 year old not getting his way.

    And for all those bitching about Obama and the Ayers connection you should really check on about McCain's lies about Ayers.

    That would be like bringing up the Keating 5 from Obama. Do you really want a nasty debate? Or do you really want to hear what they are about?
