Almost immediately after the first debate between McCain and Obama, the McCain camp puts up this video:
So, exactly how many times had Obama agreed with McCain during the debate? Nine times! As Captain Ed illustrates:
Well, I think Senator McCain’s absolutely right that we need more responsibility …
Well, Senator McCain is absolutely right that the earmarks process has been abused …
And he’s also right that oftentimes lobbyists and special interests are the ones that are introducing these kinds of requests ….
Now, John mentioned the fact that business taxes on paper are high in this country, and he’s absolutely right.
But John is right we have to make cuts. [And then Obama refused to note even a single cut he'd be willing to make.]
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.
And, John, I — you’re absolutely right that presidents have to be prudent in what they say.
Now, Senator McCain is also right that it’s difficult.
Senator McCain is absolutely right, we cannot tolerate a nuclear Iran.
