Just in the past week, John McCain brought us Paris, Moses, bikers and tire gauges. This has been the level of discussion John McCain has brought to the discussion regarding who we as Americans should choose for the next President.
It's rather insulting, I think, to all the good people out there who really care about this country. We have millions of houses that have been foreclosed on or will be. People can't pay for health care, they are struggling to heat and cool their homes, and John McCain is talking about tire pressure. Granted... yesterday... he did finally agree that yeah, it does make sense. The reality is this -- the money one would save per gallon of gas is more than we would see if we were to drill offshore. The time saved by never having this stupid tire debate can never be gotten back. More money wasted...
So today, I sit here and I wonder what John McCain Fresh outrage of the day will be. It has to be something - the man is incapable it seems of talking about his own plans for becoming the leader of this country. How about *Surging the Economy*?
"Our surge has succeeded in Iraq militarily. Now we need an economic surge to keep jobs here at home and create new ones," the Republican said at a kitchen cabinet factory in the distressed state of Ohio.
Keep in mind, John McCain has also suggested that we use the National Guard to do crime prevention in inner cites... Put this all together and you really have one mess of a candidate.
America deserves better than this. It doesn't matter WHICH
side of the aisle you are on. We deserve an intelligent debate about the issues of the day and issues that we will be facing in the next four years, not some pandering drivel that makes no sense from one day to the next, that the media spends hours dissecting for their own self serving interest. There are things that REALLY matter to Americans, things like comprehensive energy reform, health care, financial security for the middle class, education... the list goes on. McCain owes it to Americans to debate these issues. Not talk about Paris Hilton and pressure gauges.
So, it's Thursday... I wonder what will Surge out of McCains mouth.
Start threading the news.
