WISCONSINREPORT.COM (10/08/08) - Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Joe Wineke is calling last night's Presidential Debate Barack Obama’s second straight debate victory. Wineke says John McCain was unable to articulate a new direction for the country beyond what Wineke calls the failed, recycled policies of George Bush. Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker and former Lieutenant Governor Margaret Farrow are spinning the second Presidential Debate from the Republican point of view. Farrow and Walker saw McCain making several points and coming out ahead of Obama in the Nashville debate. Read more at WisconsinReport.com.
"Barack Obama won a huge victory by continuing to prove that he is in touch with the challenges Americans are facing in this difficult economy," Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Joe Wineke said.
"On the issues that matter to middle class Americans from the econonmy, to health care, to energy, to foreign policy, Obama continued to display steady leadership and articulate innovative policies," Wineke claims.
"McCain was erratically all over the map and seemed uncomfortable and unsteady even in his favorite town hall format," according to Wineke.
"McCain is running out of time for a game-changer, and tonight he didn't get it," Wineke said about last night's debate in Nashville.
"Before the debate the McCain campaign said, ‘if we keep talking about the economy, we're going to lose’," Wineke said. "He lost tonight," Wineke added.
The McCain-Palin campaign supporters in Wisconsin are busy spinning the Presidential Debate in favor of a Republican debate victory.
"John McCain connected with Wisconsinites with his real solutions for America's health care system," Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker said.
"For the past week Wisconsin has been saturated with false attacks on McCain's health care plan and he broke through the rhetoric and laid out a plan that will empower Americans to control their own policies while making coverage affordable for all," Walker said.
"John McCain laid out his vision for America and gave some straight talk about the economic challenges confronting the country," said former Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Margaret Farrow.
"In uncertain times we need a leader who will put country before politics and do whatever is necessary to solve the challenges facing our nation, both foreign and domestic," Farrow said.
"Comparing Obama's lack of experience to McCain's years of service to our country proves Senator McCain is the right choice for Wisconsin," Farrow added.
