As we all learned a few years ago...it's NOT just the economy. But the the price of gas has a lot to do with the economy...and the price of gas (as we have seen in the last two months) has a lot to do with where we intend to get oil. With one simple pick of his Veep, John McCain has shown that he intends to drill for oil in Alaska (finally someone with the sense and courage to do it). Now if he will commit to build a few dozen nuclear power plants, throw in some Pickens wind energy and continue the Bush legacy of keeping us safe from another terror attack...What more could you want?
I know...John McCain is not at conservative as I am, he is a true independent "Maverick" candidate...and I question some of his history and decisions in his personal life and public life, however he is SO much better than the "Obama bin Biden" ticket...I don't see how any reasonable Republican or Independent voter could make another choice.
If you get past the delivery, theatrics, Hollywood hype...and charming (beguiling) good looks of Obama. Strip away the historic nature of his accepting the nomination of his party for President of the United States, on the anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech. (never mind the irony that the author of the "I have a scream speech" orchestrated all of it all for the DNC). Get beyond the fact that the media is looking for a coronation, not an election of this man they call "the One".
When you put aside the sizzle, and dig into the steak. He is the same old tired borderline socialist liberal that the Dem's have tried to put up so often in the recent past. This time, with no real experience. Do they really think people are going to vote for a guy for president that won't salute our flag or wear one on his chest? have you read his Berlin Speech? If we think the Chinese gymnast was 14, not 16...we have the same evidence that Obama is Muslim (google is a great thing) (are we even allowed to discuss this, or is that "off limits").
Did the Dem's really prohibit John Edwards from speaking at their convention, because he had an affair, and lied about it...yet Bill Clinton is their "Rock Star" and keynote one night? Is that the party that you want negotiating with the Iran's Aqua Velvet Jhad? John McCain is a Hero and a Patriot and there is no country or dangerous group on this planet that would question his resolve or his trigger finger. Do you think that Dem's are going to offer you that same security? I think not.
Vote for John McCain for President. I have said my peace...and counted to ten.
