The Presidential Race
« on: 08-27-2008 -- 22:59:00 »
    Granted, we may not have the best choice of candidates in the upcoming election, but in the end it is in our interest to vote.  After all, if you didn't vote you don't get to complain.   :-)

Just curious... why use Obama's middle name and not McCain's?

The Iraq situation will resolve.  It's already getting there.  The locals are sick of the turmoil and are beginning to seriously police their own.

Afghanistan is where they'll be sending most of the kids soon.  The terrorists in A-stan are home grown, and they are getting fired up again. 

Obama, IMO, will get into the White House, see what the heck we're dealing with and be completely out of his league.  McCain has a much better chance of not screwing the pooch.

Which war and how considering he has absolutely no experience? It is kind of like asking a pre-med major in college to perform open heart surgery. Not too smart. So he is useless there. I hope there would be a better reason than that for some of you to vote for him.

 Actually, you need to read McCain's agenda. When did he say that he was committing to the Status Quo? Or is that just an assumption? I don't agree with everything with the man, but he sure beats a person with no exp. . What exactly needs to be changed other than stricter enforcement on Illegal aliens ( which Obama wants to give amnesty ) ? I think the strategy of the war needs to be changed, but not pull out and be defeated as Obama wants us to do. I think we should allow our guys to fight a war instead of making them do it with both hands behind their backs.

John McCain has more than Bush. I don't agree with all of Bush's policies anyway. He is soft on the Illegal Alien problem. He also has allowed the public to dictate the policies on the war, just as Obama would do if in office.

 Also, Obama is an arrogant bastard or he is so stupid that he doesn't even know what he says. In his speach last night he railed people like myself that think that people should have personal responsiblity. He said that people like myself think that "poor people should pull themselves up by their bootstraps , if they have any, and work to succeed". he goes on to say that people need help and can't do it by themselves. However, earlier in the speach he brags about growing up poor and working hard to be successful. He talked about how he and his wife were in debt with student loans when they got married, but worked hard to pay them off. Gee, he can do it but everyone else is too stupid? He is full of hot air. I bet no one in that crowd last night even caught that because they were so starry eyed. And they called Bush stupid?

Like I said..Obama is a Marxist.  Its old FDR Liberal polcies all over again.  The government will tell you how to do it attitude instead of being responsible for your own life. 

Be ready with Obama if he gets elected.  If you think you are poor now, what till he raisie taxes to pay for all the "Grand" new benefits he wants to give out.

Personally I wish Ross Perot was running for President now.  He was 15yrs ahead of his time though.  We really need a good Independant to shake things up a bit.

Obama wants more of our money to take care of the "Less Fortunate".  Of course the millionare Obama hasn't sent one red cent to help out his half brother who is living in a hut in Africa making $1 / month.  Compassionate with my money but not with his.

Not getting my vote.

Palin's experience has made one of McCain's arguments about Obama's null. She is a bold choice for the Republicans and may sway some of the disgruntled Hillary followers. Whoever gets into office, this will be a historic election.
