One of the favorite lines from this Presidential campaign is do we really need four more years of the Bush administration. By saying this the implication is McCain is just four more years of the Bush legacy, yet are not both a continuation of the Bush legacy. First let us break down what the basics of the Bush legacy. It is huge and expanding government that infringes into everything and includes a bellicose warfare state. Both John McCain and Barack Obama will not only keep all existing programs, regulations, and laws but plan to add to the never end growth of government. Both candidates supported Bush’s bailout. Both candidates agree with Bush on warrantless wiretaps. Both candidates agree with Bush on opposition to gay marriage. Both agree with Bush on "reasonable" gun control. Both agree with Bush on immigration. Second part of the Bush legacy is the warfare ideology. True McCain has said that he would attack Iran before Iran was able to attack Israel and we are all Georgians(The country not the state), but Obama has said that he would invade Pakistan. Obama famously said, "There’s not much of a difference between my position on Iraq and George W Bush’s position at this stage." So for all that demand change what exactly are you going to get?

You are completely correct. If the USA really wanted change, Ron Paul would be one of the candidates.

Ron Paul would have been a change candidate, but apparently only a handful of Americans wanted change.

This is excellent! I am here to read all that Obama supporters have to say in response to this.

You must be wrong. See, Obama said CHANGE. That means he's gonna be different. Just give it up. All the facts in the world are no match for the word change. This campaign is about the buzzword change. It worked for Bill Clinton and Obama is just stealing his old strategy.

Actually, with the exception of the tax cuts, there is not a lot of difference between the Bush Administration and the Clinton years.... well, there WAS that little impeachment issue... that was a big difference. The thing is, that 0bama and Hillary were running on the same basic plank, which also does not differ much from Bill and Bush. The biggest difference is that 0bama has targeted the rich, and big corporations, at least in the campaign... in reality he has take large contributions from them as they seek to cover all of the bases. He also wants to adopt socialist policies in the interest of "fairness" while acknowledging that those policies will damage our already fragile economy. All this time he has been running against Bush, yet there is not that much difference between them? What change indeed?

You pointed out an interesting point, Bush vs. Clinton. To all that hate Bush and love Clinton their really is not much difference between those two. There is all kinds of change, but do you really want the change Obama wants?

Another point to support your assertion: In the Democratic primary debates, Joe Biden said that he "thinks Obama can be ready to lead the country, but he is NOT ready now" AND he said he would "honored" to run WITH or against McCain. Now, because of his typical 'Biden the stumbler' fashion, I can't really understand how he comes up with that, but the fact that he would be HONORED to run WITH McCain, shows how highly McCain has been thought of in the Senate and in this country, and also shows how Biden respects McCain's viewpoints. Honestly, I can't understand why Biden was selected as VP running mate, since he and Obama had clashed on any number of issues during their Primary campaign.
