Better Teacher, Better Football Fan? Who Cares People.
September 19, 2008 2:55pm CST
O.K., ok. The world is in trouble. Every bit of corporate America seems to be having to be bailed out, we are trying to find victory in Iraq and Afghanistan, we are looking to elect someone who can get the job done and bring change and reform Washington, DC. So, some polling companies want us to know who they would rather teach their children and who they would want to have them sit with them during a football game. Who cares, darn it! One thing I know is I want Senator McCain teaching my children because of the history of his family. His father was an Admiral and his grandfather was an Admiral. They fought for this country will gallantry and with bravery. So did Senator McCain. I am not saying that Senator Obama does not have something to offer, but he is not my choice for teacher to my children, if I had children. Folks, let's get on with the issues at hand and stop playing around. It is time to know what we are going to do to make this country great again, not that it is not great, but the world as a whole looks at us like we are a laughing stock. And I want to say this: Our current situation has been something in the making for a long, long time and we have to stop blaming President George W. Bush. Thanks for your responses and have a great weekend. Happy Mylotting.

Let us throw out politics and speeches for a minute shall we. Let us say you were picking the next leader of you country from what is on their resume, who would you choose. Candidate Barack Obama, graduated from Columbia University and Harvard Law School. Obama worked as a community organizer and practiced as a civil rights attorney Served in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004. Obama also taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004. Currently serving a the Senator from Illinois since 2004. Candidate John McCain, graduated from the United States Naval Academy and became a naval aviator. Served during the Vietnam War and became a POW when his plane was shot down over North Vietnam. McCain retired from the Navy as a captain in 1981 which ended his 23 years career. McCain was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from Arizona in 1982. After serving two terms, he was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1986, winning re-election in 1992, 1998, and 2004 which he currently serves. Now I understand that some will say Obama yet I really do not understand why? Yo me McCain has the more impressive resume. On the night of January 20, 2009, a new commander-in-chief will leave the inaugural podium, parade, and festivities for the Oval Office. A national security staff ready with the latest “threat briefing” will join him there. On his desk, they will place a thick binder of reports, each focusing on real or emerging threats to our national security. In the quiet of the Oval Office in the presence of these stern-faced, deadly serious briefers and advisers, do you not want someone who has experience in difficult times? What except studying for a test or hanging out with his college dorm friends, has Obama ever had to make a difficult decision? So is I want the next genereation to learn that sometimes the decisions you make will not be the most popular but they are the right ones.

What is far more important to me is not someone's experience but their policies. A democratic president means a democratic administration pursuing democratic policies. It means change to what we've had over the last 8 years. This country is in a mess so why should the Republicans be given another chance? Our foreign policy has failed and our economic policies have failed. 80% of americans think the country is going in the wrong direction, how is electing a Republican senator to the Presidency going to change this? McCain can have all the experience in the world, but if he is going to pursue the same failed policies, and remember that he voted for Bush 90% of the time, how is that going to improve things?
