I want to know: Is there anything Obama will take a stand on?
That is the question.
1) Bush's actions don't rise to the level of impeachable offenses. (In other words, don't bother me with it now, because I'm running for president, and I could never get elected by trying to hold Bush accountable.)
2) War funding
5) Offshore drilling
Wait a minute. I forgot. When he becomes president, then he will address all of these important issues.
Just two more questions, then you can flame away. I cant' recall the last time a candidate made good on campaign promises once elected. In Obama's case, if he keeps backing up on important issues BEFORE he's elected, then just what do you expect him to do for us when he DOES become the next president?
Last question: If candidates continually lower the bar, to the point where they can walk right over it, then what does that say about us?
I will vote Obama, because there really is no other choice, but I not only will hold my nose, I also know what to expect, and that is not much for us. Anyone who thinks he's our savior is a fool.
One last thing. You can flame away, if it makes you feel better. But I say we have a right to be pissed. Election or no, he's jerking us around, and I don't have to like it.
