So which man is capable, competent, and intelligent enough to lift our economy out of its current slump?? I would like to hear some well-thought out comments that don't include the mud-slinging!! A President should be able to stand on his own opinions--w/out having to taint his opponent in the process. McCain is certainly a dirty fighter (mud slinger), and that doesn't sit well with me. I think it's insulting to my intelligence.
I've heard many people say that one should vote for one's party irregardless of the credentials or likeability of the candidate. I don't agree. I think a candidate should earn their votes. I want heart-felt, articulate, intelligent answers--and a lot less cut-throat politics.
I do like both the VP nominees. I think both Sarah Palin and Jo Biden are good choices for VP. Sarah is likeable and Jo is a leader I would follow. But this ISN'T a popularity contest!! I would love to hear Palin step away from her memorized rhetoric and say something candidly. Jo appears to be a man who could handle the Presidency.
I worry about Barack's inexperience, and I get queezy every time McCain uses the term "friends" in each of his responses. I feel like the term "friend" is a special title that has to be earned--and he uses it all too carelessly. Hunter and I have been following the debates, reading up on the issues, and discussing our views on each of the candidates, but we've both struggled with this election. We'll have to decide soon.
What's your stand???
I got to jump in the car with Michelle today and go to the kiddos school for their annual BBQ. It was fun to see all the kids--Blakester, Michayla, Amber and Mariah. We were able to eat with them and gab about all that happens during their school days. We love McCarter Elementary!!
