I cant believe how tiny she was!
I want to thank everyone who emailed me and left a comment. It was fun hearing from everyone. You don't have to agree with me, or me with you. We are lucky like that! I think this Presidential campaign is going to be very exciting! I found this clip from "The Daily Show, w/ Jon Stewart" Its pretty funny - it shows how the media and the politician talk out of both sides of their *** just to confuse us :) It has actual quotes. Kinda sad Kinda funny.
Ok now....what did I think about McCain's speech? I liked it. I like him as a person, a solider and an American. I was moved by his war stories. Just awful. He is quite brave. That is something to be respected.
He stated his plan is to "Restore Honor and Dignity" to the White House. Ok. BUT, his party, his friend, his buddies..are the ones who have taken the "dignity" out of the White House in the first place. Gas is thru the roof, my taxes are insane, my rents are down but my insurance is TRIPLE what it was, milk is $4 a gallon. Every street around me including the new expensive developments have foreclosed houses on every street. Unemployment is way up. I want to believe him, but I just don't . Do I think he would be tough on our enemies? Yes. Do I want us rushing off to another war? No. I wish we were out of this one. I hate knowing people are dying everyday. Remember Palin has NO foreign policy experience. If she were to wide up in charge then what? Who is behind her? Alaska is lovely but it is a world of its own no? Obama has Biden (tons of experience) Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Al Gore and many friends in the Senate to pull from. All very experienced. McCain says he "hears us" Ok. BUT he hasn't heard us for the last 8years when he voted with Pres. Bush 90% of the time. The first Pres. Bush said "read my lips, no more taxes" and he raised taxes. Can you believe anyone? Will Obama raise taxes? I don't know.McCain is going to drill more oil wells to solve the energy problems. All I have heard said this is not a solution. I am not an expert so who do you believe? I was impressed that John McCain didn't dismiss the amazing strides Obama has made and his millions of supporters to get to the place of being the first Black Vice Presidential candidate ever. He showed him respect. I do not think the folks before him did. Obama, like him or not has made amazing strides for our country. And he has pulled people together. The speech didn't do enough for me to make me vote for him but I do like him more. Honestly I am looking forward to the debates. That is where I hope to see actual plans laid out and what each guy/woman has under pressure.
Any comments :)
