Presidential Debate Party -- Sept 27 -- 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. -- Roadhouse

Democrats in Thailand,

The Presidential Debates are just around the corner – where are you going to watch them? Why not join a friendly crowd of Democrats Abroad to cheer on Barack Obama? DA Thailand will be organizing debate parties for each of the coming Presidential debates, as well as the Vice-Presidential debate (when the McCain handlers have to finally let Sarah Palin speak for herself!).

DA Thailand is organizing a no-host social night to watch the first debate on the evening of Saturday, September 27 at the Roadhouse Barbecue ( – there is a map on the site), starting at 6:30 p.m. Come on by to support Barack Obama, see friends, share political chatter and views, and of course, enjoy the Roadhouse’s great ribs and other food, and ice-cold beers. DAT will have our Obama English/Thai language t-shirts on offer (they are the coolest t-shirts – the talk of the town!), as well as Obama bumper stickers and buttons for those who want them.

Please RSVP (if you plan to attend) to democratsabroad "at"

Here is the schedule for the upcoming debates. Each of the debates starts at 9 p.m. in the US and runs for 90 minutes. Given the time difference between the US and Thailand, which means that all these debates will be live in the early morning BKK time, DA Thailand will be taping the debate and then (in Bangkok) showing each on the following evening (nights of September 27, October 3, October 8, and October 16). Other DAT Chapters in the North, Mekong/Northeast, and Pattaya/Eastern Seaboard will also likely be organizing events and we will be relaying news of those events to you separately. Here is the schedule:

First presidential debate:
Friday, September 26 (BKK party Saturday evening)
University of Mississippi, Oxford, MS

Vice presidential debate:
Thursday, October 2 (BKK party Friday evening)
Washington University in St. Louis, MO

Second presidential debate:
Tuesday, October 7 (BKK party Wednesday evening)
Belmont University, Nashville, TN

Third presidential debate:
Wednesday, October 15 (BKK party Thursday evening)
Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY

Look forward to seeing you with us at the debates!

Best wishes,

Phil Robertson
Chair, Democrats Abroad Thailand
