But my problem is that I've been around long enough to just not care what they say in speeches, as by the first year in they rarely keep to it. I
trust records much more, but even they can be totally flopped once in office.
I trust Obama could do an excellent job, but I don't know. He hasn't been in long enough to get a good record. he hasn't stood the test of
cooperate time. By that I mean, I don't know if he'll stay independent when the corporations and the likes come to him with barrels of money.
Truth be told. Clinton and Bush made alot of speeches and made alot of promises. But how many did they keep faithful to.
Obama claims he's for change, but then goes and picks an old school VP. So how do I know he'll keep his change doctrine once in office?
And then there's the fact that McCain's VP, too, is inexperienced. But it's almost certain this old man is going to croak over. Just look at how
white Bush's hair got in his 1st term. Imagine a dude decades older and already white haired ?!
I think we honestly have 2 choices. Obama, or Palin. Truth be told, I'd take the side of the young redneck over the young lawyer. Just my opinion.
I can't honestly believe either will end the war anyway. I can almost bet the war will continue for a number of years bast 08
I have a lackluster faith in politicians. But I have a theory. If Obama goes against what he promises, people will just claim he's inexperienced or
something else. But if Palin goes against it, she's got half the country armed who are at the boiling point against here then. And I can honestly
claim that I'm betting McCain isn't making it the full 4 years if elected.
well, That's what I think.
