Watching the news the last couple of days, a reasonable person can only conclude that John McCain is a pathetic choice for President. He’s not the man he was in 2000. He is man of extremes with contorted ideas:
- One moment “the fundamentals of the economy are sound”
- The next hour we’re in a “crisis”
- Shortly thereafter, someone brings to McCain’s attention his gross contradictions, he announces the “fundamentals” he was talking about were “American workers” [My B.S. detector went off–did yours?]
- Now, McCain wants to regulate industries he and his advisor Phil Gramm helped deregulate. [This is antithetical to the Republican mission and vision for this country.]
We have a man who is clearly struggling. He is out of touch with reality until somebody plays the soundbite back for him and tells him how ludicrous he sounds. Then, like a punch-drunk fighter, he jumps back in the ring, overcompensates and goes to a different extreme.
George Bush says “we need to make a few adjustments” while the media is using terminology like a “financial tsunami” to describe our current economic crisis.
Last night, the government (that would be you and me) made a $85,000,000,000 (that’s $85 billion) loan guarantee (a.k.a., “adjustment”) to keep AIG afloat due to lack of appropriate controls and prudent action on the part of this corporation. That is a HUGE sum of money. Yikes!!
America can’t stand 4 more years of Republican “leadership.” The world can’t tolerate 4 more years of Republican “leadership.”
Enough! It’s time for a change: Barack Obama
