I couldn't agree more. The country is bleeding from the economic arteries and these guys offered Band-Aids last night.

... and could somebody tell Tom Brokaw to go back into retirement or go write another coffee table book or something? Yeesh!

Hi Billl,

How are you doing?

Ya know, there's something fundamentally wrong with the country when there's not a good baseball game on another channel to watch instead of the debate.

Hi Close Observer,

How are you?

My point is that debates, like political speeches, tend to be relatively un-burdened by informative substance.

I tend to crave substantive info, which is why I spend a significant number of hours of free time every week researching political issues.

Don't get me started on False Claims Act stuff or securities regulation. :)

I agree with your point, Deb. I wasn't trying to be flippant. Maybe that comes natural to me? }-:

I think at this late stage, I doubt we'll see any attempt at substantive discussion by anyone. It's straight soundbites and gotcha slogans from here on out. So with that in mind, I'd much prefer a play at the plate in the bottom of the ninth!
