I'm sick of the Republican way of skirting the issues, and the "My Party Right or Wrong and Screw the Rest of You" fallacy. At least Democrats are willing to learn and have more open minds.
McCain might have been a Maverick but now he seems to be a man who has sold out his core principles.
And I think Sarah Palin is in way over her head; in fact I know she is! I know her personally.
Get off this *experience* business. NO candidate knows what issues he’ll face as president, and there is no comparable experience to prepare anyone for the daunting and extraordinarily powerful office.
Do any of you personally know her? How can you decide if you don't? I know all about the "Bridge to Nowhere". I do not understand why she is persisting on about being untruthful.
Has she sold her soul here? I don't know what some people are clinging to here, but I sure get the feeling they will steadfastly cling - even when the hole breaks in their safety net and they fall over the edge into oblivion.
Yes, we in Alaska enjoy the highest earmarks of all 50 states based on per capita. McCain is against earmarks and special interests - or so he says.
But with our economy sinking, I don't think so anymore. We don't have the oil you think Alaska has. It's ELSEWHERE. We need to look at sustainable energy sources.
You can drill from here to doomsday and you still won't buy your current energy prices down. Don't you get that?? PLEASE research.
We need to choose someone who is thinking long-term and who will best serve the interest of the people. I'm going to tell you something right now.
One real test of what kind of president any candidate will make is the kind of campaign that person runs. The only one so far is Obama. And, as back-up in case of tragedy, look at who both candidates chose as their running mates — the first and critical executive act of their potential administration. Obama chose an experienced and politically sophisticated senator; McCain chose a relative novice, a manifestly unqualified running mate.
