McCain-Obama

I have differing views on this. I like Obama, and I don’t like McCain. But it’s not that simple. McCain does have a ton of experience, while Obama is just a neophyte. I feel like McCain will be Bush 2.0, which, obviously, is not a good thing. And i think Obama is JFK 2.0, which, depending on your view, is a good thing. The problem is, for me, is how is Obama going to respond to the first, inevitable, crisis. It seems like McCain would have an advantage in that regard. But I think there is no way McCain wins, and it is quite clear-cut: Obama will crush McCain in debates. He will obliterate him. McCain will lose this election based on the fact that he is boring, he is not passionate, and he seems uninterested. Obama, on the other hand, will bring his lively passion to the debates. Another problem with this country, is that a lot of people, and this might be a generalization, vote on who they like. Consider this: At your local elections, you usually vote for whatever party you are affiliated with. I don’t think people take the time to consider the issues surrounding you in your community. Now, take this principle and apply it to the general election. Will people just vote Democrat because they are, and vice-versa? I think there will be a number of people who will. But also, when it comes down to  it, are people really going to vote for a black man? As sad as it is, it might be true. Racism is still the elephant in the room, whether you like to admit it or not. It’s always going to be there. That might be Obama’s biggest problem. But, if he can sway the American public in debates, he just might have a chance, he just might have a chance.

  1. A bush 2.0 would be a good thing because it would be an improved president. No matter how you look at it McCain is will win this election. The country will not vote in a black president let a lone a muslim black president. Or a president who has friends (ie reverend wright) who believes that America deserved 9/11 and feels its ok to say “god damn america” and above all is a complete idiot. no way else to put it. now if you want your potential president to like spending time with these kind of people fine. but i cant imagine spending 5 minutes with this guy and if obama can be considered his friend for 20 years then you gotta ask yourself, does he have the same views?

  2. i disagree with ricky. do u have the same views as your friends. if a friend of yours is an asshole, does that make you an asshole too, or just a friend of an asshole. i must say that i am not against mccain because he wouldn’t be a very bad president hes very experienced and i like the way he thinks although jeremy is right– he isn’t as passionate about winning as youd like a president to be but than again, he didn’t have an opponent for quite a long time. all i know is that we have one thing to be thankful for. HILLARY IS OUT
