The economy problems were caused by George Bush... and John McCain


I can't believe anyone is dumb enough to believe that.

But they are.

I was just listening to a reporter who's embedded with Barack Obama's campaign share that PRIVATELY the Obama people admit that George Bush and the Republicans didn't cause the problem, that it is a non-political issue, non-party issue. But still they play the blame game so they can dupe the dummies who haven't got a clue how things work and who're looking for a Messiah to save their bacon.

I get so tired of politics sometimes. I'd say it would be really refreshing to have someone just tell it like it is, but they'd never get past first base so we'd never know they were doing so. I know in local politics around my county a politician who speaks straight doesn't last long! People want to have someone to blame and they want someone to tell them it's going to be OK.

Sarah Palin and John McCain are about the two best I've seen yet when it comes to 'straight talk' as McCain tags his way of shooting from the hip. Sarah Palin has gotten where she is partially because she is a straight shooter (in more ways than one!). However, I'm noticing that the handlers are starting to have an affect on her. I hope she'll continue to stick to her guns and not let those guys ruin her. What is SO refreshing about Palin is her lack of Washington, her freshness and honesty. Well, there's a lot of things that are refreshing about Sarah!

Heard today Obama is going to stop trashing so much and start offering solutions. Bet they'll involved MORE government, MORE big brother. I think one of the reasons we have this problem is the government stuck their hands into business and the free market a bit more than they should. From what I understand, those crappy mortgages happened in large part due to the government breathing down their necks about not giving enough low-income loans. I said 'partially' because that's not the only reason. Human nature abhors the potential to ignore easy money, thus greed factored into the equation, too.

Who knows what the right balance between government regulations and free market should be? To me it's clear Obama goes way over the top and if he had his way he'd turn this country into a Socialist one if possible. The Libertarians may have the right idea, but they go a bit too far in a different direction. Not saying the Republicans are always right, but I can live with self-responsibility and less government a whole lot easier than the Democratic version of government and censorship.
