No, grinch, I'm not promoting my candidate and I'm not sure what his answers are, although I would think it would go beyond selling lemonade. He was, after all, as I mentioned, warning of the Freddie/Fannie impending crisis years before it reared it's ugly head. I do believe, however, that McCain has a creditable congressional record with a mountain of experience behind it. Obama's only congressional noteworthy accomplishment is being named most liberal senator in congress. He has initiated no bills of any consequence and has done basically nothing during his term other than run for president. He has no military experience, no foreign relations experience, and no economical experience. Had he not given a good speech at the 2004 DNC, he would never have even been noticed, much less be considered a viable candidate for the presidency....and, as McCain is finally pointing out, Obama's only major business experience is dealing with a felon and a terrorist. Even if it boiled down to nothing more than choosing the devil you know over the devil you don't know, I'll go with the one I know.
The word "bankruptcy" doesn't stir any feeling in me one way or another. I do believe, however, that national bankruptcy does not exist unless it is spiritual bankruptcy....and I can assure you it is not. The U.S. has been down and pronounced dead before and yet here we still are and we're not going anywhere. Americans will do whatever it takes to recover. That's what we do. We recovered from the Depression, we recovered from Jimmy Carter and we will recover from this and the global economy will recover with us.
That's another reason why I prefer McCain, whose message is hope and belief in the American people. He doesn't have a minister who preaches "God (blank) America", nor does he have past political supporters and business associates who are sorry they didn't do enough damage when they bombed the Pentagon.
Hopefully many Americans will feel the same way at crunch time.
