Sad to say my time machine is broken. But I would love to travel back in time to the stock market crash of 1929 and listen to the discussions President Herbert Hoover had with his Cabinet and advisers. Do you suppose he was just a clueless as Barack Obama and John McCain are tonight?
I'm betting he didn't realize what the stock market crash meant. He thought it would recover. He didn't see the Great Depression coming.
Neither did a vast majority of the population. But the economic landslide was relentless.
But tonight most Americans are starting to realize they have lost 1/3 of their life's savings and/or their retirement fund. Folks that thought they could retire at 59 or even 65 now realize they may need to work the rest of their lives. Retirement is no longer an option.
People on fixed incomes or living today off their 401K's realize they are moments away from losing their homes or worse.
And they realize that neither Barack Obama nor John McCain will have the money to institute their proposed Medical Programs.
And many people really fear they might be laid off before Christmas. Those fears are well founded.
The current disaster is far worse than the stock market crash of 1929.
John McCain is genuinely clueless. He actually believes this election is about Barak Obama's relationship with distinguished University of Illinois at Chicago Professor (and unrepentant radical terrorist) William Ayers.
Wake the hell up, John. Americans couldn't give a rat's ass about Ayers. In fact Americans would overwhelmingly elect Ayers if they thought he could solve this financial mess.
And America is already scared as hell of Barack Obama. Trust me, we are terrified. And it doesn't have anything to do with Ayers. So give us an alternative. Show some real leadership.
I realize that you must attack Obama. It's part of the campaign mix and negative ads so work. So hit Obama where it will really hurt: Barack Obama's total lack of experience and timid decision making. Obama hasn't ever managed his way out of a Senate cloak room. He generally refused to make decisions. He's inexperienced and weak.
Give America an alternative. But if you continue to ignore the 8 trillion ton gorilla in the room, we are all going to lose.
