This being a Presidential election year, its a real hoot watching the herd of reporters all trying to be first with a story on the political scene. There are only a few news networks, all the others just pass on whatever they are saying---thats why nobody can take politics seriously anymore---its all just a publicity circus. Who can bad mouth the other guy the bestest.----The rest of the world laughs itself sick over our elections.
Take Obama for example---that guy has been running for president since he made the inaugural speech for Clinton. "They" saw the potential in him even then. How he was photogenic, young, a new face---better yet he was a guy that would listen to his handlers, and not give em a bunch of static. (watch him zig left and right to get the best public opinion poll for that week)
Then there is McCain, "They" had to make a decision, but it was hard to make as they had to find out first, who he was gonna run against-- and it took forever for the Donks to decide who they wanted to run, once that was decicded then "They" opted to go with McCain, (maybe next time Huckabee), rather than a younger newer face in the crowd, that way it would allow the game to present itself as a choice, "Old" versus "New".
So here we go sportsfans----just remember, not fair to ask the candidates any tough questions, like, what do we do about the Social Security system going broke? "Did we have 3000 plus of our military get killed in Iraq, and now should we just pull the rest home and pretend its a victory? or just pull them out of Iraq and move them to Ahganistan, and sell it as "change"? No fair asking about energy programs, as nobody wants our beaches destroyed with offshore drilling, or refinererines in OUR backyards. Don't ask them questions about how they might stop americans from buying less costly goods from China rather than the expensive equivalents produced by our fellow citizens. and no questions allowed about why people were so dumb as to allow themselves to be sold the idea of buying houses they couldn't afford and lets blame the greedy banks for that. ----anyway, you get the drift. keep the questions simple, so he candidates can lob in their 30 second sound bites for the evening news---and lets enjoy the tongue in cheek negative political ads that make it possible for the media to bring us the cheap, no name actors, reality crap they give us .
Its the "Donks" turn-----will he blow it ---that berlin decision not to visit our troops wasn't good?? (see where the defense minister of Iraq visited our wounded??)
