Some Thursday Thoughts

I took a little time to clear my head yesterday, and my post debate depression has lifted. While I still wish McCain would talk about his efforts to rein in Freddy and Fannie in the debates, at least he has a good web ad out there that explains it.

I don’t understand why we let Obama have a free pass on these issues. Let’s look at the difference between the two candidates on the issue.

John McCain wrote and advanced legislation that would have imposed strict regulations on Freddie and Fannie. Senator Obama wrote a letter to the Treasury Secretary.

I guess what makes me mad is the fact that I as a citizen can write a letter, but our elected officials actually have to power to call a hearing or write legislation. John McCain led, and Obama covered his a$$ by writing a letter. And why isn’t the media asking to see this letter? What did it say? Did he get a response?

American is deadly close to electing an empty suit as its leader. In these times we need a real leader who isn’t afraid to tackle the problems that face our nation. That leader is John McCain.

Also I know I’m a day late and a dollar short on this, but I also encourage you to vote for Aplington-Parkersburg to get $25k from the Henkel Helps Schools Contest.
