Webb and Miller Debate on Hardball
I can hear Webb supporters hearts breaking all over the state. Tonights debate was a bomb for Jim Webb. Mathews put them both on the spot. They both pretty much have the same view on Iraq. On immigration Miller had a concrete answer on punishing employers for hiring illegals. Webb on the other hand was wishy washy and Mathews called him on it. Next big difference was Jim Webb supports Don't Ask Don t Tell. Miller supports open gays. I think we know who will win the majority of the gay vote. The candidates got to ask each other one question. Webb again blows it. He asks about lobbyists and Miller responded with as a good a answer as a lobbyist can give. Miller bombs Webb with supporting Bush and Allen while slamming Clinton. Mathews smiles. Webb's long answer had enough ummm's and hmmm's in it to choke a mule. I cant wait to get the transcript of this debate to count how many times he told Webb to just answer the question.
Now the biggie!!! Mathews asks about who they would support for President. Hillory Clinton or Mark Warner. Webb would not answer. Miller proudly said Mark Warner. If there was any question in anyones mind who the true Virginia Democrat is, it was answered tonight. If this debate is discussed in the MSM it is a nail in Webb's coffin. Watching this makes me ask is Webb a Democrat? He is happy with the status of gay rights. He does not want to punish all employers for hiring illegals. Neither candidate supported gay marriage but both supported civil unions. What a pair! Webb made clear Miller was a lobbyist. Miller made clear Webb was a republican. I bet that hurts don't it? Get used to it. Tune in next Tuesday to see which one Sen Allen gets to defeat in November.
