If McCain cannot multitask, how in the hell can he do a good job at President??? We need a change. Bush in 8 years has destroyed the economy. McCain does not even address the most important issues and when he does, he is very inconsistent. God help us if McCain becomes our president. If Obama were white it would not even be an issue. This man is a very educated individual who has a good vision for America.  If people cannot set aside their insignificant convictions for once and vote for the issues at hand, then we get what is coming to us. Race, Gender, and Party all should be irrelevant. Those things are not that significant stacked to the real issues: Economy, National Security, War in Iraq, etc. Everyone is entitled to vote, we all have an equal say. However, like with every choice there comes a consequence. Hopefully when people exercise their right and responsibility to vote they understand the consequences.

I agree. McCain seems to be a very well educated man; however, under the current circumstances, needless to say, we need someone who understands the economic situation. I am voting for Obama, only because I believe him to be the best person for the job. I think that he is what we need in Washington right now. I just hope others can see the situation as it is, and forget about their partisanship and race and all those other insignificant things. Lets vote for the issues. Lets vote for change.

I have watched both debates, and the theme has been "change". McCain has been in an office for 23 years and what has he done during the Bush Administration? Obama stated that Israel is our Ally. Obama also stated that he would try tnegotiating first, and if military action needed to be taken, it will be. Do you want change? Are you really happy with what has transpired in Washington? Are you really thrilled with what the Lobbyists and Special Interest Groups have done? Then why would you keep putting the same people back into office that are the cause for what we are facing now. We need a change and although it may be hard to accept it, if we do not act now there may not be another election to change it.

Obama has no experience whatsoever and his foreign policy is going to mess up our country. Completely. He wants to sit down and talk with Venezuela and Iran and he could care less about defending Isreal, without question our biggest ally. And all the crap about energy and stuff, creating jobs, hes going to raise taxes to do it. Why not start drilling over here. Mccain may not be the best politician but he's clearly the best choice out there.

Things that are occuring today are ramifications of legislation put in place 10 to 15 years ago.

Even if that were so, what has the Bush regime done to fix it? Raise gas prices? The Bush admistration has not solved anything, it has only added fuel to the flame. People were making these payments on time during the Clinton administration. Why have they not been able to make the payments during the past eight years?  Middle Class families are struggling to put food on the table. This is largely due to the tremendous spike in gas prices in the past eight years. The raise in gas prices has forced th
e price of everything else to increase as well. What has been Bush's economic policy over the past eight years? Tax cuts for the High Class? He has constantly stated that a wealthier High Class will make a stronger Middle Class. When in reality, it is vice versa. We have witnessed the result of Bush's economic policy: failure.

Bush in 8 years has destroyed the economy.

You need to get a better understanding of economics before you make a blind statement like that.  Things that are occuring today are ramifications of legislation put in place 10 to 15 years ago.  Freddy and Fanni were a result of legislation passed during the Clinton administration forcing banks to give loans to people that really could not afford it.  It made the market look great for the time being, and it allowed the execs of these company's cook the books in order to acheive bonus mark earning them large (extremely large) bonuses.  Many years have passed and now it is time to pay the piper.  These people are now foreclosing on the homes they could afford in the first place and the banks can't get rid of the properties, which in turn lowers their value.  And now banks are forced to place the market value ($0) on their balance sheets which is what has caused a lot of what is going on today.
