Does John McCain want to loose this election? I can’t remember how many times I heard him say at the debates Friday night, Senator Obama, Senator Obama, Senator Obama and on and on and on! Today, in the midst of this financial crisis, he throws jabs at him again! I know he associated the bail out debacle with Senator Obama, the Democrats and bipartisan politics but my point is this “SPECIFICS!” That is the one thing I haven’t heard really from either candidate. Yes I know this is the worst financial crisis we have faced in years. Yes I know these are difficult times, hard times and every troubling adjective you can think of to put in front of ‘times’ to fill up a politically spin ridden speech with! Tell me how you’re going to lead us through this! Who cares what Obama is doing. All he can say is that John McCain will be Bush’s third term and I guess he’s taking gaffe lessons from his running mate when he said to one crowd, “Bush’s fourth term”. He’s nothing like George Bush but that’s the only insult he can hurl. Tell us what you will be doing Senator McCain, let Sarah be ‘Sarah’ and you will see your poll numbers jump. Until you do this you have a one way ticket to driving your political bus off a cliff.
Look at this video of the democrats trying to cover up the mess that we are in now back in 2004!
The debates on Friday night were nothing special. When are they ever! Well I do think the Reagan-Mondale debates were kind of fun to watch back in ’84 only because Reagan didn’t make it a total bore-fest with his wit and humor. But back to Friday’s debate. In a nutshell we saw Senator Obama speak his usual rhetorical nonsense and stay on the defensive most of the night. While Senator McCain laid out his resume on what he has accomplished and his long tenure in the senate. I do wish Senator McCain would have spoke some specifics on a few issues. One thing that did catch my attention was his idea of a “league of democracies” but that will be a subject for a later time. But there it is my first entry. What I think about it, really nothing more to say about it. Maybe you can turn over to MSNBC and if something isn’t crawling up Chris Matthews’ leg you can get his two cents about the whole thing.
Thanks for stopping by!! Just started this thing so I should have everthing up and running soon.
