I’ve been reading many stories, listening to speeches, and watching video of pundits, and I’ve come to a realization:
I’m all electioned out.
After the primary season, I was running on fumes. Now we’re treated to the Obama love-fest from the media, and the “Big Ignore” of John McCain. Which is fine. I’d prefer it it they were both ignored.
I don’t know who I’m going to vote for. I’ve got three options, Not Obama, Not McCain, or Not Go. And I’m not going to base my decisions until I see some debates.
Frankly, I’ve preferred McCain’s speeches due to the fact there’s substance. Obama’s speeches have been some great-but-empty rhetoric. I’m leaning towards McCain because I think he’s got a better grasp on fiscal responsibility than any Democrat. He’s also got a better overall plan on foreign policy. And I’m sure Obama would put judges onto the Supreme Court that would do more to hurt the Constitution than help it. So far, 3-0 McCain.
But I’m not liking McCain’s immigration stance, nor do I like his “maverickiness” when he was continually joining with Democrats (and,he was a MSM media darling when he did it). He was also involved in the AZSCAM, although ultimately cleared. He’s also old, which means his choice of a VP is of greater interest than that of Obama.
So that means 3 points for McCain, 0 for Obama, and 3 for No Vote (or Bob Barr). I’ll know more when we have some debates.
