Stupid question from Brokaw: Manhattan Project or 100,000 garages? McCain doesn’t answer. Attacks Obama for voting for energy bill. Oil drilling offshore will “bridge the gap.” (Between what and what?)
Question from the hall to Obama: Should health care be treated as a commodity? Obama gives his usual rap. McCain crosses behind Obama as he’s speaking, upstages him. (“How disrespectful!”) McCain points out that McCain would tax health benefits, eliminate state consumer protections, quotes Chamber of Commerce as saying that McC would wreck the employer-based system.
