John McCain won tonight's debate.
He won by clearly laying out a plan to help Americans stay in their homes and get our economy back on track by creating jobs. John McCain clearly talked about what he would do to help middle-class Americans – securing their mortgages, achieving energy independence and helping them keep their jobs.
From Barack Obama, we heard more contradictions between what he says and what he has done. After months of opposing offshore drilling, we heard Barack Obama say he supported offshore drilling. After abandoning his promise for a middle class tax cut after his 2004 campaign, we heard Barack Obama make the same empty promise. After proposing billions in new spending, we heard Barack Obama claim he will cut the size of government.
John McCain is the tested leader we need to lead America in this crucial time in our history.
