The 3rd debate: Did McCain really say that?

 

I googled the third debate dialogue to see if McCain really said:

“Unite For Change!” growing in Clarksville

 

“Clarksville for Obama” joins in nation-wide social networking to grow the “Obama for Change” campaign.

Saturday afternoon saw “Clarksville for Obama” execute their community event in participation with the nation-wide June 28th community event for the “Obama for President” campaign.

Senator Barack Obama’s approach to presidential campaigning is predicated on having small citizen groups form within their own communities and build support bases from the community level up to the national organization through social networking.

Emails, phone calls, text messaging, postings to MySpace and Facebook were all tactics employed to make contact and encourage people to come out. By the size of the crowd, they were quite successful in their efforts.
