Who’s the Republican and Who’s the Democrat?


Watching what was the most boring presidential debate in history last night, I almost fell off my couch by a statement by John McCain. He stated he would use half of the $700 Billion in taxpayer bailout money to pay off “bad mortgages.” I was stunned and thought I had heard wrong. So, I rewound the HD DVR and played it again. Yep, he said he would help solve the sub-prime fiasco that got this economic mess percolating, with half of that money that most Americans were against. Senator Obama has a similar plan in place, I know. You would expect that from a Democrat who has never met a tax dollar he didn’t want to spend. But, from a Republican??? The party of tax cuts, less government and fiscal conservatism? If there was ever any doubt John McCain is toast, that announcement last night should eliminate any ideas of a Republican win in the presidential election. Republicans who were starting to warm up to McCain will now start to run away from him. Upon reflection, it will be the best for Republicans if Obama does win. You have to hit rock bottom before you get better. And for Republicans, Obama is rock bottom.

My question, what about the rest of us who pay our mortgages on time? You know, the people who play by the rules and fulfill their financial obligations….those people. I’ll tell you what; we’re going to be taxed even more now since we are in good standing. It amazes me really. Europe is running away from socialism. Here in the United States of America, we are running to embrace it. I’ve said it since I started this blog; we NEED a third party in this country that represents the taxpaying citizens and not special interest groups. Get ready to part with more of your hard earned dollars in the next four years. At this point, it doesn’t matter if it’s Obama or McCain. There really isn’t much difference in the two.

There's a lot of truth in what you say. It's the twenties all over again. Who is going to play Herbert Hoover? Maybe the Republicans don't want to go down that road again. Fifty years is a long time to be out of power. Maybe they are going to subconsciously throw the election and let the Dems lead us into depression. It could be a smart move.

The Republicans this time threw an attractive candidate Mitt Romney out the door so they could run the oldest candidate in the history of US presidential politics. A guy who has a lot of baggage plus a bad temper and is rumored to be slightly insane. He makes Bob Dole look like JFK.
Yeah. They are handing off the hot potato.

David, I have heard the same things about McCain as you. He has used gutter language with senate colleagues, notably Sen. Cochran of MS. He is not fit to be president. Of course, neither is the competition. I also agree about Mitt Romney. Out of all the Republican candidates, he was the most impressive of the lot. As for the Democrats, I never dreamed I would find myself pulling for Hillary Clinton during the primaries. But, I did.
