Both candidates have missed votes. But not all those votes are on serious issues. You can swing it, smoke it, or wing it anyway you want, but when
you can show me that the entire 66.3 % votes that McCain missed were all on serious issues then I will believe your logic. Your logic is also flaw
because you fail to show that sometimes Obama and McCain don't vote because they don't agree with the bill. Sometimes they prefer alternate bills.
You gave me a list to look at but one would have to read each one closely to see if it is really worth voting on. Sometimes titles can be misleading
and Congress has a reputation of adding in fine print.
I ask you this has Congresss fix the national debt, the budget, high energy prices, crumbling infrastructures, social security, medicare,
immigration, wars, terrorism, protecting our borders, economy, collapsing financial institutions, corruption in government, lobbyist, jobs going
overseas, pork barrel funds, government waste, Americans right to privacy and many more issues that I could add?
I really don't give a damn if you take me serious or not. You can defend your Obama till your blue in the face. Your very good at saying Obama did
this but McCain didn't or vice versa. Basically tit for tat. I have nothing to lose cause I favor neither.
I favor the American people and our right to get Congress and the sitting duck President to put us first. Both candidates are full of air and will
lie, steal, and cheat to win votes. You have your reason to like Obama and I respect that. But don't think for a second I am going to sit back and
let you shove his crap down my throat.
On some things I will defend Obama like with all the muslim, birth certificate , drug type BS. On other issues like healthcare I will point out why he
is wrong. You may not agree and I welcome a lively debate but don't start trying to prove me wrong by throwing McCain in the picture. Both candidates
have good things and bad things about them and we could go back and forth about who is better.
But the reality I see is that no matter which one wins, the new President will still go along with his party in Congress, repay favors to the big
shots that helped get him elected, and both Republicans and Democrats will still be trying to outdo each other rather than take care of the real
issues we face.
Once again, look back at some of the issues I mentioned above and tell me how long they have been issues and how many Presidents and Congresses have
promised to fix those issues.
This is nothing personal, you have your view and I have mine.
My advice to all politicians is simple, quit promising and start fixing.
Which leads me to my final point. Both McCain and Obama are Senators and have all these plans to implement to fix our problems once they become
This is so typical of politicians.
Having the power as a US Senator to get things fixed now, they prefer to let America suffer. We have to wait till they get sworn in to see any action.
This is what bothers me the most about both candidates. Their interest come first and the rest of America is second. This speaks highly of your
Obama, and McCain.
