NEITHER one of them represents the changes that I want, so I haven't been excited about the choices for this election. I'll go along with McCain based on one issue he supports that's important to me. But other than that, each one is a good/bad candidate, each are intelligent men with their own good agendas.

I do have my concerns about Obama, but if he wins then I want my concerns to be proven wrong.

Several years ago there were tax cuts. The media spoke about how they helped the economy. McCain wants to keep these in place. They certainly helped my personal economy and that is what I look at first. No new legislation needed, they are already in place and have saved many taxpayers money. Money we worked for and earned. I vote with my pocket book. Now both candidates have bone-headed ideas and good ideas. Most won't happen, certainly not the way they propose. But to keep an exisiting tax cut in place simply seems to require an ability to use the Veto. Easier than navigating new legislation through Congress.

^'Tax cuts' is synonymous with 'false promises'. Especially with today's economy.

B.O. is sooooooooooooooooooooo bad I can believe anyone could consider him. He has taken to many drugs and has too many bad friends. And has no ethics does only things for him! Sits under a man for 20 years who says God Dam America!

Has a V.P. who say’s "Mark my words," warned Sunday at a Democratic fund-raiser. "It will not be six months [after the inauguration] before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy." Then he added, "Watch. We're going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."

Metro, I count Obama's experience as a state senator from an urban district in a farm state to be very valuable for domestic issues. I would have liked to see some more experience on the international front but Joe Biden more than makes up for that.

Have you heard Biden speak on international issues? I am amazed by the depth of his knowledge and undersanding.
