Am I the only one avoiding the debate?

Asked by SuperMouse (30772points) October 7th, 2008

I tired listening to it on my way home from work, but I just couldn’t do it. Listening to them just frustrates the heck out of me.

I’m avoiding it too. It’s just not worth the frustration when you can’t make fun of Palin afterwards.

I too avoided for the same reason. An interesting question to add to yours is, why are we frustrated?

As a democrat, I’m frustrated seeing McCain as a possible President of one of the most powerful countries in the world (that’s debatable at this point, I know). It just pains me to realize how stupid our nation can be and frustrates me because I know there’s no way it will change.

I thought it was just me. I am so afraid that Obama won’t win. I just do not know how I will face four more years of this.

I hate those things.

I had to turn off the TV and go to bed (to Fluther on the iPhone).

I was becoming frustrated and depressed. I don’t know why I thought I would hear something that sounded like hope.

I am VERY fearful of Mcain winning.

I did watch it but I had to put my hands over my eyes, and at one point, without realizing I’d done it, I said to my friend Llynnie (who wrote it down and called up her friends and told them I’d done it) I actually said out loud, “I don’t want to live through this.”

I Tivo’d it and watched it after it was over (because I couldn’t watch it when it aired). I wouldn’t have missed it, even though there was nothing either could have said to make me switch sides. They say keep your friends close and your enemies closer….this way I get to see how well Obama does, and keep an eye on McCain, so I know his tactics and can respond to them if they prove to be effective (fortunately they did not)

I watch the debates to reaffirm how much I hate both of the main party candidates. Also, watching it with other people gives me a good opportunity to fume about how partisan the debates are (the Commission on Presidential Debates should be _non_partisan, not _bi_partisan. boooo.)

edit: I didn’t actually watch this last one. Tuesday nights are too busy for that.

Haven’t watched any of them. I watch the recaps the next day.
they bore me to death…same old crap.
