Possible Presidential Pairings?
Bondguy,I do agree with what you are saying. The fact that you say, "It's like a bad Disney movie" is along the same lines of Matt Damon's comments: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6urw_PWHYk As an independent myself, I did favor Obama in the debate by a pretty wide margin. All the "Obama doesn't know what he's talking about" stuff did get pretty old. I was also annoyed by the stupid things he says off the cuff. For instance, when asked, "What would you do or cut from your plans because of this economic crisis?", McCain says, "How about a spending freeze on everything except the war and taking care of our veterans". Are you serious? Did you really just say that? I know it's not a huge point, but the guy seems so frantic about everything. The whole Palin thing has completely worn off on me. I am so dis-interested in her and now view her pick as a terrible choice. Lastly, I think McCain's advisors must be the dumbest guys around. They have been making McCain look very poorly of late.
The Republicans just put the stake through McCain’s presidential bid.This is not going away for a long time. The republicans are blaming Pelosi's speech before the vote, citing it as bipartisan. Sure, saying nothing would have been better. But if the republicans voted against it because of Pelosi's comments, then it plainly shows they are playing politics with the market and could not have put it to the side. The republicans went against their own party's plan. Talk about bumblef*ck.
I’m over Democracy at this point. I’m ready for communism.
Our Glorious Leaders, Bernanke and Paulson '08

This is serious, but ice’s advice is good advice to heed. It’s way too early to know what the final outcome of any of this will be. While I tend to agree that this doesn’t bode well for McCain, let’s let the smoke clear. Right now each side is blasting away at the other. This deal isn’t going to pass if that continues.
