With the presidential debate soon approaching, I am finding my lack of enthusiasm alarming. I am not happy with either candidate
Sorry hardcore Obama fans.
My gut tells me that Obama is all talk. I think Barack’s speeches are mesmerising- they give us all hope. But I also think that he is a wonderful speaker, and hope is what we all need right about now. Our economy is in the garbage, our international relationships are in the toilet, and I think just about anyone who says the right things right now can reel us in. But does he have the experience to back up the dreams he’s selling? The media is putty in his hands, and that can sway the undecided voters.
I find it difficult to vote for a man who was associated with people who are anti-America. And maybe it’s just the Israeli in me- but it truly scares me. What if there is something going on behind the scenes that we DON’T know about.
Barack looks like a family man (and since my husband shares his name I am biased). He has two beautiful daughters and a powerful wife. I love Michele Obama- and you know what they say- behind every great man, there is a great woman. He is a man of color and I think the world needs that. I also admire the fact that he did not come from a well-to-do household- which means he got to where he is on his own merit.
It’s just that his lack of experience, his past associations, and his candy coated words scare me.
John McCain is getting on in his years. I am not age- prejudice, it’s just that IF something were to happen to him- SARAH PALIN WOULD BE PRESIDENT!?!
The woman is NOT PRO WOMEN. Period.
I dont like the fact that he has voted with Dubbya 90% of the time, that he left his first wife once he was freed from captivity (she was a former beauty queen, had a terrible car accident that left her less than beauty queen like while he was a POW) and actually dated Cindy while he was still married! What does that say about his character? He comes from a well-to-do household and is married to a very rich woman. I feel like he truly wouldnt be able to relate to problems like ours.
I do like that Mcain served our country- and that he knows what it’s like to be on the front lines defending us.
I am sad to say that I am not voting. I know it is my right as an American to vote. Many countries don’t have a voting system. But if I did, my heart wouldn’t be into it… and I would ultimately be voting for the lesser of two evils in my eyes.
Oh, Hillary- Where art thou?
