Something positive from John McCain
There have been articles in the media these past few days about the ferocity and just general rage being exhibited by crowds at GOP presidential rallies. John McCain showed a glimpse of the sensible man he was before he was taken over by the pods today. At a rally in Minnesota after a rather strong anti-Obama comment from a member of the audience Sen. McCain responded:
McCain shook his head in disagreement, and said: “No, ma’am. He’s a decent, family man, citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with (him) on fundamental issues and that’s what this campaign is all about.” . . . . “I have to tell you, he is a decent person and a person that you do not have to be scared of as president of the United States.”
Thank you, Sen. McCain. My personal opinion is that Gov. Palin incites hatred in crowds with her rhetoric. When she lacks facts and truth, she makes up for it by substituting fear-mongering and hatred. Now next debate can we hear less attacking and more real information as to what both candidates are planning for our future – not what the other guy is going to do – what you are going to do.
