Schneider: Obama talks regulation

Obama is looking at the financial crisis as something he warned about two years ago. He's also talking about regulation. Americans don't like regulation but they do like to keep an eye on wall street.

    Senator McCain won hands down! Bravo! America needs wisdom at this time. Senator Obama needs protocal lessons. He is not ready to become a WORLD LEADER.
    Senator McCain has knowledge, leadership skills, and a history. He was politely telling Senator Obama, to get in line for a ticket back home to Chicago. I think he should remain in the private sector in fact.
    I have strong doubts about his ability to lead as a Senator.
    What do you think, Illinois? You want him back? Take him, he's yours!

    * And did you see how Senator Obama's face got so small? LOL
    How can he talk to world leaders people if he can't control his facial gestures?

    I know noone will listen to me but im going to tell the truth anyway-

    1. No matter what u think, if Obama is elected TAXES WILL GO UP. It is just a part of bigger government. Currently we are outsorcing medicare/medicade to private companies, who yes do skim a bit off the top, but overall save us money. If we try to switch allll of thoose jobs to government employees, suddenly the nations expenses go up. As a side note this is extremely socialist-and we all know how that's worked out in the past. Obama proposed to increase taxes on buissnesses as well tonight. This will no dought cut more jobs-possibly moving them to even MORE government jobs- or they will live off of unemployedment checks(more of our taxes).Also Obama has propsed BILLIONS in new programs that simply, aren't in the budget. Lastly he wants to go into the war with afghanistan just as Iraq settles down increasing our war debt. WILL IT END?

    2.Yes Mccain isnt perfect and not the best president BUT HE IS NOT BUSH. Indeed taxes will probably go up with Mcain but we wont be paying for millions of new government employees going into medicare/medicade. Some of Mccains policies arent the best and i prefer Obama in thoose areas but as whole i definetly think that with Mccains MUCH greater experience and know habbit to do whats right nomatter which party he offends (unlike Obama who almost always sticks to the left-93%)

    3.Final point- Every voters presuppositions control who they vote for (everything they do in life as well). Most people have already made up their mind and it would be nearly impossible to persuade them one way or another.
