You can tell Republican Senator John McCain reads the poll numbers. Last night’s final debate moderated by CBS News anchor Bob Schieffer at Hoftstra University in Hempstead, N.Y. McCain stayed on the offensive attacking as much as possible against rival Democrat Senator Barack Obama. For the whole 90-minute debate, McCain kept pushing Obama against the wall trying to force answers. He made him speak about his association with 1960s radical William Ayers. He forced Obama into another corner over the liberal activist group ACORN, now facing voter fraud charges. McCain kept up the mud fight charging Obama of being a tax-and-spend big-government liberal. He pushed over and over again Obama would raise taxes. He also jumped on him for his change on his stance on off shore drilling. During the same exchange he said he admired Obama’s eloquence, the back handed compliment was really about how you have to listen to the content and not be hypnotized by the wordspeak. McCain jumped on the Obama plan for healthcare for what he called European style socialized medicine. The only thing the smiling Obama would do as these attacks came in from the glaring McCain, is to fire back about how a McCain administration is four more years of Bush policy. There many exchanges and references to plumber Joe as McCain charged Obama in participating in class warfare. Once again was it enough to poke holes trying to slow the Obama train as it steams toward Election Day with anywhere from a 10 to 15 point lead.
