Anything to get electedPosted Thursday, October 23, 2008, at 11:51 AM
John McCain is accusing Barack Obama today of saying "anything to get elected."
His example: A work requirement embedded within an Obama proposal to grant a 10 percent universal mortgage credit.
"The requirement was added two weeks ago to avoid charges that the proposal provided 'welfare' to non-working Americans," the Associated Press reports, adding that the requirement was disclosed only within the campaign or to inquiring reporters.
Campaign time's getting confusing, folks. Seems that a Republican would be backing instead of bashing a work requirement.
I suspect both McCain and Obama will say "anything to get elected."
Yes, I'm going to vote for one of 'em. But I don't particularly like either one.
Looks like it's time for a major upheaval in the nation.
If America could just get its collective mind unwrapped from around that confining two-party system and look beyond...
Of course, then we'd have still more people saying "anything to get elected."
