Promises, Promises, Still No Change

John McCain has some great ideas, with his willingness to remove much of the excess from government. I like many of his ideas, though I seriously disagree with where he stands on the wars in Iraq and Afganistan. That being said, it’s not what is driving my vote away from McCain…

I like Barack Obama’s maturity throughout his campaign. I see many of the attacks from McCain to Obama, including taking so many of Obama’s statements out of context. What’s worse, in my opinion, is the fact that McCain will not look at or hold a personal conversation with Obama. If he is not capable of doing so, then how can he effectively lead this country. This is a scenario that he would have to deal with from the Oval Office.

Haven’t we dealt with one person who has been too stubborn for the last eight years? In the most powerful office in the world, there is a time to be flexible and a time to be rigid.

30 Days of Composure

The clock is running with a little over a month until elections, while we watch or presidential (and vice) nominees.

 I don’t mind McCain or Obama, and no problems with Biden. I can’t say the same about Palin, as she seems to talk circles when asked a question, when she is running for an office that would have to replace the president if the need arises. We have a president in office that does that now.

My next concern lies in the smear campaign – which has always taken place – that politicians use. The interesting thing is that McCain seems to try to do most of the smearing. I’m not saying that Obama isn’t smearing McCain, but most of it is true, while so much of what McCain has been saying either is not true or is exaggerated.

However it turns out, this country needs good leadership to pull us back from the slump that the current administration put us in. Smearing is not going to help with that, for either party. The rest of us will have to be prepared for sacrifice.
