Election 2008 - Debate #2: VP vs. VP

Well, debate number two is in the books and I was quite impressed with Governor Palin. Senator Biden, on the other hand, was only there to discredit Senator McCain. Political pundits have already been pointing out the areas where he attempted to shed shadows of doubt over McCain but the congressional record shows Biden is nothing more than an overpaid mouthpiece for the democrats.

I realize Gov. Palin made several slips in not recognizing Obama as Senator Obama but, maybe those weren't slips. The thing that really stood out to me was Biden's flagrant disregard for the office of the President by refering to President Bush as simply George Bush. This man clearly has no respect for the office and should not even be allowed to address those that hold the office regardless of political affiliation.

I really did not capture any significant points on which to elaborate. The real differentiation I see is that Obama and Biden are nothing more than politicians taking your tax dollars without providing any real service to the taxpayer. That, in my humble opinion, is taxation without representation. Senator McCain and Governor Palin, on the other hand, appear to be real people with real concerns about the country as a whole, not just who is lining their pockets. They may not have all the answers and I am sure they will even make a mistake or two if elected. But the question I really need answered is, "Who are YOU voting for and why?". Let me hear from you and maybe the next blog will be about the American people and not the candidates.
