President Elect Obama raised $640 million dollars in campaign contributions. Among the leading contributers: Microsoft, Goldman-Sachs, JP Morgan, Citigroup, Time-Warner, Morgan Stanley etc.
Do you think that these contributers are looking for "change"?
McCains 2 biggest blunders: Palin and supporting the federal financial Bailouts. He could have differentiated himself from Obama by opposing the Financial Bailouts. That would have been more "maverick" than supporting Bush. It worked for Bachmann, I think that helped her overcome her diarrhea mouth.
Do you think George Bush is at home looking in the mirror saying "what have I done"? I doubt it, that would require thought, reflection, integrity, insight, humility, of which he has none...
I'm among the 1-2% who didn't vote for the major parties. This quote helps explain:
"Liberty is the natural condition of the people. Servitude,however,
is fostered when people are raised in subjection. People
are trained to adore rulers. While freedom is forgotten by
many there are always some who will never submit."
