I have written about the Republican debate before and I admit this is the first time I have watched a democratic debate, I couldn't stomach it. I liked the format and while most of the world thought it was boring I actually got a lot out of it. The Fox channel put a bunch of voters in a separate room and had them use a little thingy that showed how they felt about what a candidate was saying and it showed up on a graph. It was interesting and disturbing at the same time. These voters actually changed their minds because of the debate, I find this frightening. They thought John Edwards was "inspirational". I thought one lady was going to take off her bra and give it to him. One guy actually said that he was going to vote for him because he was going to "veto" ALL that Bush has done, what a moron. Like the second he gets in office he was going to start making phone calls and bring the troops home, get everyone health care and start checking things off of a big list and perhaps give everyone 5 million dollars if elected. These people are idiots. The question was posed of what they would accomplish the first year in office. Of course they promised the moon and a love fest for the division in our country. I am wondering which one plans on crossing the aisle to appease us conservatives and of course the same promises were offered by the elephants as well. It is so lame. Obama will get into office and the hugging will begin because he can give an inspirational speech and coombaya will be bellowing from our porches. I can't stand it. Rumor has it that Bush has already called in Barack and Hillary in to his office and told them they better tone down the anti-war rhetoric because once you sit behind the big desk it is a different story. I am tired of the pile on Bush, I am the opposite of Bush, Bush sucks, Bush can't write, Bush can't read crap. Hillary got in one of her fingernails to a chalkboard cackles on a Bush slam. It is too easy to slam the President, he is unpopular, so go ahead and act like the popular kids and make fun of the kid no one likes. It's pathetic and NOT Presidential and tiresome.
John Edwards is an ambulance chaser and wants to take on corporate America and he IS corporate America and a huge reason why health care costs so much. He is a millionaire because he can sue sue sue. I don't find Barack particularly inspiring. I think he is by far the most disciplined candidate and tries to take the higher ground, but his "politics of fear" I don't find comforting when to me that sounds like appeasement. I like the tough stance that Bush has taken. I think he is the only one that has remained resolute since 9/11. I admire Barack's vision but I don't think taking our enemies to lunch is going to make them like us any better. This debate gave me a lot of insight as to why I vote the way I do. Dems really do try to appeal to a institution sucking people. This philosophy of low expectations is offensive and I would think people would resent it. I hate this part of the campaigning. I look at all the candidates as saying what needs to be said, and PEOPLE ACTUALLY BUY IT!! Republicans are just as idiotic. I don't care what their opinions are, I really don't. There are some things that can't be changed regardless of your opinion. The President may WANT to raise the salary of a teacher, but isn't that a state issue? Don't waste my time with these types of questions. I don't want to hear a mini inspirational speech of your amazing thoughts. Explain to me why "no child left behind" doesn't work. Why isn't it important to have accountability and testing? I am done with these debates and I found the dems to be non-inspirational. I am back in the Mitt Romney camp however, yes I was out for a while, but after much thought I am back.
It is so easy to blame Bush for every bad thing in our country. I suspect whoever the President is, will soon realize it ain't so grand to have the world on your shoulders.
