Another look at the wacky world of Election 2008, brace yourself. Presently our choices for President seem to include a pair that make up the first black man, and the first woman with any serious chance of becoming elected, as well as a former POW. The first two are running on the exact same “issues”, and are presently engaged in the mudslinging contest to end all mudslinging contests. The third is frankly no more a Republican than Ted Nugent is a vegan (sorry to drag you into this Mr. Nuge.)
The official Democratic option, and yes I mean that in the singular sense as they are one in the same where policy is concerned, allows for two individuals I can never begin to support. One with a sheer lack of any relevant experience and an interesting take on his quite overtly racist “crazy uncle” of a pastor. The other rides the on the tails of a known philanderer confused with the definition of “is”. She also “misremembers” sniper fire. Lest anyone be confused, you do not forget coming under fire – direct or indirect.
The unofficial Democratic option (also seemingly the official Republican option) is consistently unable to decide on which side of the isle he should sit. Furthermore, he openly supports (if not directly sponsors) bills clearly at odds with a document he’s sworn at least twice to uphold, and once to defend. At no point will I ever discredit his military service, and deeply respect him for the same. That said, I simply can not approve of his legislative record at all, nor can I support the platform on which is runs for President.
As it stands, it seems the majority of the voting public in America has bought into rhetoric, and ignored logic and fact at all costs. How else could these three individuals rise to the upper levels of their respective primaries? None of them has a record of fiscal responsibility, none have taken a realistic approach to national security, and to a man (or woman) all have demonstrated a lack of personal responsibility many times. This is who we want to lead our country for at least another four years? God help us.
