RNC

As I cringed my way through the RNC last night, with all their below the belt low class blows and stupid jokes, I wondered how much of what they were saying was factual. Luckily I found this top story in Yahoo today. Damn shame when they are already telling lies, and they aren't even in the office yet.

It's sad how so many people were already taken with Palin, before they even heard her speak! How can you blindly jump on a bandwagon without knowing the facts first? Without knowing the candidate? This is what is so fucked up about this country. So many don't bother to really know the candidates, they just go with their party of choice. Or if they are male, or female, or black, or white, how many children they have, or whether or not they go to church-or, better yet, someone they want to have a beer with. Please people, learn from the mistakes of the last 8 years and really think about who you are voting for this time around. You screwed us for the last 8 years, let's not run the country completely into the ground.

And don't even get me started on Giuliani. Sorry buddy, but Obama made it a lot further than you in this race.

Hear hear.

I can't fathom how McCain and Obama are still tied in the polls. I can only assume it's because people aren't fully informed, and I can only hope that as we get to know the candidates better - like through unscripted, televised one-on-one debates - people will start to see which candidate is truly the more presidential. (i.e., "McCain's a nut," as Ken says.)

I third that.

I couldn't get to sleep last night after listening to her speech. Holy Christmas. And to top it all off, she thinks banning books is OK. Don't F with the books.

She thinks hope is a bad campaign hook? Seriously?

Stupid wolf-hunting, book-banning, pro-life jerkface.

HI COUSIN,
you took the words right out of my mouth, most people aren't informed, and vote for reasons other than policy. I'm very afraid if mcCain wins. Nothing but more of the same.....and don't get me started on Palin. between her and rudy, i don't know who made my stomach turn more.
just heard on the news, mcCains big health care plan will consist of taxing those of us who have health care thru their employers, so much for tax cuts!!!!!
keep writing maybe you'll get thru to someone.
love cindy

I hear ya cousin. I just don't understand how anyone could vote for McCain after the last 2 term debacle. Same shit, different candidate. It just boggles my mind. You'd think people would wise up already.

Canada anyone?

There is a good chance Obama might lose if we are not all careful!I saw an interview with Spike Lee, and his points were clear that Obama does not as yet have this election locked up, and that we all need to rally for CHANGE! I hope people are not thinking about who is the better candidate to sit with at APPLEBEES and have a beer!!!!

Seriously. I was shocked when Bush won in 2000, and I was floored when he won again in 2004. I can't even FATHOM - really, I can't get my head around it - how this country could go for McCain. But the polls don't lie... Somehow, Obama's gotta shoot ahead. Those Hillary supporters gotta get in line!

Unfortunately what you call "playing nice" or "playing aggressive" is sad but true. But aggressive isn't the word, it's playing dirty. And I hate for the Dem's to stoop to their level but this is a truly do or die situation. What I love is the media is playing dirty FOR the Democrats lately!

Love how all the lies are coming out about Palin. Yet, her supporters think everyone should leave her alone because they are being "too mean". Why? Because she's a woman? Come on! Bridge to Nowhere my ass. Girl, you're on a road to nowhere!

Cousin,
Let me ask you, are you hurting financially, living in Manhattan one of the most expensive areas to be living in. You both have good jobs. What have you sacrificed to say that we are worse off? What change are you looking for? Why isn't Democratic Congress making changes since they are in power? I still love you even though our views are completely different and lets let the best men & woman win.

I emailed you my response but thought I'd post it here too


Honestly, paying more taxes never bothered me. If it's going to a good
cause. And the clean up involved in Bush's fiasco of a presidency over
the past eights years, as well as many other things that need to be
improved upon, is well worth it to me. We have quite a deficit to
recover from. Nine trillion is it now? Who is going to pay for that?
From what I understand most of these taxes wouldn't be brought on the
poorest in the country either. I currently pay federal, state and a
high city tax to live here but I know keeping this city running
requires money and it has to come from somewhere. We get a lot in
return and to us it's well worth it.

There are so many more important issues that are affecting this nation
and the world than taxes and these are the issues that concern me the
most. This war MUST end, too many people have died on all sides
involved, jobs MUST stop being shipped overseas, environmental issues
MUST be addressed, healthcare MUST be fixed, and our blemished
American identity MUST be improved.

There always pros and cons to every candidate's plan but I just cannot
fathom having McCain in office. But whoever wins, at least this idiot
Bush will be just a memory. If only the deficit went with him.

i agree with everything! the one thing i do not like about obama is he is really dreaming if he thinks as president he can fight market forces and globalization. sure he can use tax breaks and incentives to possibly bring corporations back to america, but when we are ready to pay US$80 for a t-shirt in the Gap, then we will stop jobs being shipped overseas. when we buy stocks or deposit money in a bank account, we want returns. this means companies cut costs and find more efficient ways of doing things, to deliver returns to investors.

obama all the way!!! but this may be one of his ideas that may not come to fruition, but he will get a damn lot done otherwise, far more than bush!

Hello my dear,

Personally, I think both parties have pro's and con's but everyone is entitled to their option. Yes I would love Obama to win. He WILL bring change and make a difference and will make the leaders of both nations of United Kingdom and USA together, but I have to agree with the comments made. The media does play a large hold over the nation and remember McCain has the backing of your unfortunate president Bush!!! Clearly there isnt no certain winner, well at least not here over the pond!!! I hope all will be resolved, soon enought the decision of your good nation will be certain!!! I hope for the best of the nation, the decision will be the right one. By the way, OBAMA to win!!! Your great nation is in need of Change!!! Bush will be history, but McCain must go along with him!!!

I'm sitting hear listening to Obama speak....I listened to Mc"same" speak.......the basics of our economy are sound???? You know how I feel, and it's nice to see others in this family agreeing with me, although you two always have, but as you have seen, there is such a deep rooted misconception in so many people in this country still......they have blind alegance to the republicans....they vote according to personalities.....they vote for certain races.....they vote because of gender........it's insane...they even truly believe that Mc"same" is different than Bush.......I'm giving money to Obama, and I hope, for the sake of my family, and even for the sake of those who oppose Obama, that Mc"same" loses in November.

P.S. As politically vocal as I am, this is the first time I've EVER contributed cash to ANY politician !!!!!

I too have contributed for the first time to a politician. Never have I been inspired enough to want to open my checkbook but now is the time! I've been contributing to him since early this year and will continue to do so until November when we win this!

The idea that anybody can become President of the United States is, of course, one of the most-cited examples of ‘the American Dream’ - and when Obama won the nomination, I remember one American news reporter saying pretty much that. That he was proof that anybody can become President.

But here’s the thing: he’s not. Because while I obviously get the inference that it is a race which is open to all, to say that just anyone can achieve what Obama has achieved - and could potentially achieve - isn’t true. Not anyone could do it. I was about to say that only very intelligent, hard-working, talented, driven people can do it - but then Sarah Palin came along and screwed that one up.

I’m reminded of that great line in The Incredibles, when the mother says to the son: “Everybody’s special”. To which the son replies: “That’s just another way of saying no one is”.

Barack Obama and Joe Biden aren’t just ‘anyone’. They are both incredibly smart, talented, wise, charismatic, dedicated, pragmatic men who aren’t driven by ego alone or by the pursuit of power for its own sake. And when the best that the Republicans can find in the whole country is John McCain and Sarah Palin, well… put it this way I feel so sorry for the American people! It kinda makes me glad that we English are straight talking, no bull messing residents. But all is fair in love and war, apparently - Obama to win!! not just for the good people of your nation, but for all of mankind!
