Is anyone paying attention to the issues, or are we all so simple that we will not vote for someone based on the dim-witted comments of someone who most of us would have never even known existed if not for the never-ending news loop? Gas and goods are at all-time highs. Health care is out of reach for millions, and my kids are having trouble getting an education at least as good as mine was.
With both John McCain and Hillary Clinton singing the same song recently, it is more clear than ever that America can't afford either of them. We do not need another president who will tell us what we want to hear. We need a president who will say what he truly thinks, even if it rubs some of us the wrong way. We need a president who can admit it when they put their foot in their mouth and who is big enough to try and make it right when they should. America does not deserve politics as usual; America deserves Barack Obama.
