Yes, Obama was awake for the debate. That is like getting the Noble Peace prize for something they expect you will accomplish not for something you actually accomplished. Yes, Obama had a lot of rhetoric but so much of it was evasive to the actual questions asked and was very hollow. His record speaks MUCH louder than his words. The only reason I can see why anyone wants to vote for Obama is because he is prochoice. These people think women should have a right to have their babies killed if they don't want them and will do anything to protect that right. That is heinous barbarism known among the most primitive of people.
