Positions

I’m combing the news for any sign McCain and Obama have taken a firm and clear position on the current economic crisis and what should be done.  Considering they are both interviewing for the top position in our country, surely they have a position on the correct path to take.  So far they seem to be positioning themselves to avoid stating a position until others have made their positions clear.  Though I wouldn’t want to be in their position, it is a position they sought.  Because of this, they need to quit with the political mumbo-jumbo and lead.  In the meantime, citizens like me are processing the news and data while curled in the fetal position (insert “I want my mommy” here, please) and hoping we don’t find ourselves in the missionary position tomorrow.  Odds are good we are about to get screwed.

    Hmm, I saw, within hours a 6 point plan from Obama. I heard McCain say he wanted to put a committee together to look into it. Lemme see if I can find a link.

    I’ve not read the whole article yet, so don’t shoot me!

    Perhaps more is emerging now, Jen. I know Obama was stating he wanted to wait to hear what Congress came up with before forming an opinion. McCain seems to be talking out of both sides of his mouth. It’s hard to decipher.

    Yeah been wondering their position myself. It seems that the candidate who has been called the “messiah” by many really missed his opportunity to show those who had doubts about him that he was a true leader. That he had some sort of plan to turn the country around. I really expected better of both, should of figured that wouldn’t happen with these candidates.

    CNN frustrates and scares me. It is my new horror flick!

    I’ll hold your hand if you’ll hold mine!

    Mandi, CNN is indeed the new horror flick. I hope today brings a new day of clear messages from both candidates. I think they’ll both be in DC, so we shall see. You’d think both would have firm opinions since their administrations will be greatly influenced by whatever decisions are made right now.

    Tricia, I’ll gladly hold your hand if you don’t mind is a bit clammy at the moment.
