Obama: 'McCain Is Absolutely Right'

Fromthe AmSpec Blog the latest ad from the debates...

A rapid-response ad from the McCain campaign

This is the theme at National Review as well:

Obama was smooth, unflappable, and just a little off balance for much of the evening. Worse for him, he seemed inexplicably eager to concede that McCain was right on issue after issue. A candidate determined to appear congenial might do that once, or even twice, but Obama did it eight times:
  • “I think Senator McCain’s absolutely right that we need more responsibility…”
  • “Senator McCain is absolutely right that the earmarks process has been abused…”
  • “He’s also right that oftentimes lobbyists and special interests are the ones that are introducing these…requests…”
  • “John mentioned the fact that business taxes on paper are high in this country, and he’s absolutely right…”
  • “John is right we have to make cuts…”
  • “Senator McCain is absolutely right that the violence has been reduced as a consequence of the extraordinary sacrifice of our troops and our military families…”
  • “John — you’re absolutely right that presidents have to be prudent in what they say…”
  • “Senator McCain is absolutely right, we cannot tolerate a nuclear Iran…” read more here

Gee, if they agree this much I guess I'll just go with the guy with experience...
