WTF is wrong with the citizens of the USA

Today on the news I heard that McCain and Obama are running neck and neck right now? I'm sorry, but I just do not get this. WHY would anyone vote for that ancient old man who has no respect whatsoever for women? Are we such mysoginists in this country that we think it's fine to elect a man who left his first wife in the hospital for a woman he was having an affair with and subsequently married. Are we so stupid that we believe in a guy who thinks women don't deserve top level jobs, are uneducated, and should be off having babies at home? Having babies non-stop because he doesn't believe in birth control, abortion, or pretty much any reproductive rights for women. While he takes viagra that's covered by health insurance, he thinks it's fine to ban coverage of birth control pills from insurance companies.

Oh, and while we're on the subject of insurance, he really doesn't believe in universal care, either. He believes in subsidized private care, so that the poorest of our citzens will once again be left in the dirt begging for a doctor to care for them.

WHY would anyone support this jackass? It is because of his 'military record'? Um, it's not all that impressive once you look beyond him being a prisioner of war at the Hanoi Hotel. Is it because he believes that this craptacular war in Iraq should go on ad nauseum, killing Iraqi citizens as well as American soldiers daily? For what? A bit ugly piece of sand? Sorry, but it's not worth the loss of lives. Nor is it work the loss of money to the American citizens supporting a war they didn't ask for, didn't want, and for the most part don't support. We support our troops, not the war they're fighting.

Is it because he's really a Bush third term? Only worse? If that's possible. I mean, is he going to improve this country? Is he going to help the economy? Nope, this is the guy that doesn't even know the price of gas right now, but his children charge $50K per month on their credit cards. While his wife charges that much on a daily basis. On what? How can someone with that kind of money understand what it means to live in poverty? Or day to day, paycheck to paycheck, hoping that the money holds out the whole month and there is still food in the pantry.

Does he seem empathetic to you? I look at his smug face and I want to smack him. I don't think he cares one whit about the American people. I think, like Bush, he cares about power. I don't think he understands that Christian fundamentalism isn't an excuse for subjugating women. Again, don't think he cares. I don't think he cares about farmers plowing under their crops after the worst flooding in recent memory. I don't think he cares about our food supplies being contaminated by Chinese products. I don't think he cares about our failing health care system. Or our failing education system. I don't think he cares that fewer and fewer Americans can afford college educations so the colleges are filled with foreign students with the money to pay. I don't think he cares that there is not enough low income housing to care for our citizens. I don't think he cares that the poverty rate hasn't changed since 1965 and the poorest citizens are being squeezed harder than ever due to rising prices.

I don't think he cares about anything other than corporate greed (he likes it) and keeping the war going so he can ensure corporate greed will be a lasting phenomenon.

Again, people are voting for him why? Please, tell me why you would cast a vote for such a man. I really want to understand it. Is it pure racism? Is it fear? What is it?

He makes me nervous because he looks like he is on the verge of either *crazy* or *death*... Couple that with the possibility that he could pick our ol' buddy Mitt as a running mate...(excuse me I just threw up in my mouth)...and we could end up in a BIG BIG mess if *crazy* or *death* occured while he was in office...

I soooo agree with you. This post ought to be republished in the NY Times. He is not only a woman-hater who dumped his first wife, he is an incredibly out-of-control angry man. He is known for his ridiculous temper.

I agree with Rhea...this should be published in the Times.

One lesson this country has never seemed to learn... you don't elect "crazy"... It just never works out in anyone's best interest.

He defines the term "out of touch." I cannot support a candidate who publicly called his wife a "c***" and later joked about beating her. Yeah, real funny.

Great post and just reminds me never to underestimate the stupidity and inertia of the masses. Keeping my fingers crossed Obama takes California in the election and doing my part in that goal. Best to you and your Beautiful family, thanks bunches for sharing your great photos from your trip. I love the candy and beach pix. Thanks also for stopping by my blog and your thoughtful comment. I know that area out by Topanga Cyn and Calabasas was very rural until it got so toney.

Most voters are ignorant or stupid or both. No, that is not an exageration. They are deathly afraid of anything different, and quick to believe the worst, whether or not it makes any sense. We have a monumental challenge to elect a brilliant Harvard educated attorney with a big heart and lots of common sense instead of a privileged, angry, old man who is completely out of touch with anything outside his Congressional cocoon.

It's possible that some people find Obama a bit young and inexperienced for the job.
