Cast your soul to the sea

Senior Moment

Well, Sen. McCain is having some memory problems. He says that Obama is for the old, tired, big government ideas that did work. And he said this in Louisana. Well, I give him credit for having balls.

Let us see. Hurricane Andrew in 92, was a national tragedy. The city of Homestead was pretty well wiped from the Florida landscape, and there was extensive damage all along the gulf coast. With those tired old big government ideas, FEMA came in and helped care for the people on the ground, and worked to help get them back on their feet. The government coordinated the massive individual giving and the various NGOs that came in to help. It became the model for how FEMA should operate in the face of a disaster.

With our new smaller government, libertarian ideas of people helping themselves, FEMA's response to Katrina in 2005 stands in start relief of these new ideas John McCain wants to continue. The government stood back and let individuals help, didn't want to interfere with private donations and the thousand points of light, didn't want to get in the way of the individual. How did that work out, BTW?

John McCain is having memory problems.

He said that Obama hasn't had to deal with the tough issues that may put off his own supporters. Really? Maybe John hasn't been watching the news lately. But, just like his inability to keep Sunni and Shia straight, I'm thinking that he just doesn't remember. After all, Obama's problems have been all over Fox News, I can't believe he could have missed them.

McCain, the change we deserve? The change we've been getting for the past 8 years. Sorry, no thanks. I want a refund on the past eight years, not the change I'm looking for.

Refund?! (where's that interobang when I need it?) We can apply for a refund? I want one too!

I keep looking for the window to apply. I haven't found it yet.
