Just one word

Posted Monday, February 18, 2008, at 9:02 AM

By now we've seen and heard from all of our presidential candidates.

If you had to express your thoughts on this group with just one word, what word would you choose?

Obama - Lots of promises and eloquent speeches but no explanation on how to do it. Will be in over his head and just because he can quote martin Luther King Jr. doesn't make him a better candidate. I have a dream . . . that he actually explains to me how he will fix America instead of telling me "Yes, we can." I need a real president, not Stuart Smiley.

Clinton - Has many plans that she thinks will fix America but all involve doing it her way or no way . . . her health care plan is taking things a step too far. Very polarizing figure.

McCain - Is this guy actually still alive? But really, he is just another Bush in sheep's clothing but a lot older. Guy has no clue about the economy and domestic issues and that is our top priority at the moment. Call him CLUELESS!

I agree with LauraSFT. BLAH!

Better learn the language because that is who will own us.

[except one]

Obama seems to inspire the younger generations like no other candidate since John and Robert Kennedy. I don't know how this will translate in the general election. Clinton is just too controversial, and her campaign seems to be unraveling. McCain can't even pull his own party together and will only continue the enormously failed policies of the current administration.

I think that jaxspike had them pretty well pegged.

Ron Paul


I hadn't heard of him until the recent talk on these blogs right before Primary time :)

-- Posted by nascarfanatic on Mon, Feb 18, 2008, at 11:56 AM


Even Ron Paul. We have heard his rhetoric before. At least McCain deals with hard facts.

McCain deals with hard facts... [this is where you provide proof]

Ron Paul actually makes sense if you sit down and see what he stands for . . . he believes in America taking care of America and doing it by the law of the Constitution. I voted for him in the primary and I usually vote Democratic.

Unfortunately he doesn't have a chance because the media ignores him because they would rather have glamour shots with Clinton or McCain and then proceed to tear them down the next four years when they are elected.

"Worried"! I pray that who ever get's it. Will Have the "Best Intrest for USA and our down falling economy" "NOT for some other country, not just for their "Presidents'" pockets or intrest, but for us, The people of the United States of America.

Well Momof3&3step&1gran all you gotta do is go to the link nascar posted, and there is what you are looking for!

Unimpressed. Do they want the title or the job?

-- Posted by bomelson on Mon, Feb 18, 2008, at 3:29 PM

Hmm.. most don't want the job! That's for sure! Especially with the inevitably inherited mess they will assume control over!!!

-- Posted by darrick_04 on Mon, Feb 18, 2008, at 3:40 PM

It is a travesty that this is the best both parties can come up with. The election process has become too driven by the media and money to let legitimate candidates enter the race.

-- Posted by Chef Boy R.D. on Mon, Feb 18, 2008, at 9:08 PM

Yup... It's a complete and total contradiction to the entire process...

neither of them have a real clue!!!!!!!!!

-- Posted by shrtckt2003 on Wed, Feb 27, 2008, at 7:27 AM

There are more than two candidates... So when you say neither, are you implying Hillary and Barack? Or are you willingly admitting that you don't have a clue?
