I Don’t Know Whether I Should Laugh or Cry!

I ran across this cartoon earlier today, and I must admit that it reflects -- too much -- my feelings about the next four years. I'm trying hard NOT to feel this way, but ....

I would be lying if I said I am ecstatic at the prospect of a McCain presidency, or that I've always been happy with President Bush. However, today is day 2,513 without a major terror attack on American soil, an accomplishment that belongs to President Bush. If Ramirez is right and McCain is four years of Bush, that means four years of Al Qaeda losing their behinds.

But taking Bush out of it, I see this as a guy who called for the surge and saw it through versus a guy who still won't admit that it's worked (when Major Garrett of Fox asked him if he'd say "the surge is working" Obama responded "You won't get what you're fishing for") and has said that he would vote against it again if given the chance.

So, if McCain wins, that stuff is going to be good enough to keep me from crying.

Well, I admit that I'll feel safer with McCain in charge. But given the Messiah-like hysteria over Obama, his defeat might create a backlash that will leave America even more angry and divided than we are now. And if he's elected, I shudder to think what kind of "change" his presidency will mean for America. From my perspective, Obama is simply on the "wrong side" of too many issues I care about.



I hate to admit it, but I don't follow the Presidential race very closely, and don't know the real differences between the candidates. I see positive messages coming out of the Obama campaign and negative messages from McCain. What really bothers me is the image of the voter with a gun at his head. I'm more resigned, and hopeful, that God's will be done, and the voters will make the right choice.

What is it about Obama that you find to be on the "wrong side"? What issues are important to you in a presidential race, and how do the two candidates differentiate themselves on these issues?


Apologize for asking a dumb question. Guess I'm just supposed to know.

Sorry to take so long to respond. I've been out of town taking care of grandkids.

I believe Obama is on the "wrong side" of several issues: abortion, the economy, gun control, the war in Iraq (he still refuses to see that the surge has worked), and other foreign policy issues. It's not difficult to find out where the candidates stand since most of the major news agencies have websites where you can compare their stance on various issues. I think it's critically important to vote based on the issues, not on gender, race, age, or all the other nonsense the MSM wants us to follow.


FriarThom, certainly you can make up your own mind: http://www.ontheissues.org/senate/Barack_Obama.htm
