Everyone got their drinks ready for the night? Wonkette has the rules up for tonight's drinking game, so let's get ready to debate!
Where do you stand on the financial recovery plan
Obama: This is the final verdict on 8 years of Bush and McCain's economic plan. Fundamentals of economy must be measured by the middle class.
Obama - 10 days ago John said the fundamentals of the economy are strong - I fundamentally agree.
McCain brings up his stump speech about DNA study earmarks for bears, but no mention of Palin's earmark to study DNA of seals.
Obama - Earmarks are $18 billion, yet John wants to cut $300 billion in taxes from the richest.
Obama is doing a great job of attacking McCain on his tax policies for the rich. Lehrer is telling him to respond to Obama.
Obama - McCain plans to tax health care for the first time in history
Whoa - Obama seems like he is really getting to McCain now.
Obama - we got to get rid of the handouts to the insurers for Medicare.
McCain wants a spending freeze on everything but defense and VA benefits (which he recently opposed).
McCain keeps talking about how much government has grown in the past 8 years. Obama nails him on the fact he has voted with Bush over 90% of the time. McCain is trying to play the maverick carb, but it isn't flying.
