SO MUCH FOR CAMPAIGN PROMISES!

McCain promised in the debate that if he became president he would veto any bills that had pork attached to them. Any.

But, he voted today for the bailout, which is so stuffed with pork it smells like bacon.

What's that all about.

I'm moving to Canada, at least their politics are fun.

Sigh

The only campaign promises I remember ever being kept were back in 1994 - the Contract With America.

Maybe I'm just jaded because I live in Louisiana, the home of corruption and graft. Geez, I worked for the re-election of "Dollar" Bill Jefferson. I'm just tired of broken promises.

But....to make a promise about what you are GOING to do, and the before that do the opposite...geez. I'm over the whole thing.

I'm drawn more to the U.S. Debates at the moment.. so saaaad .. being a Canadian that is, and more interested in U.S. politics

It's no surprise, really. We're drawn to it like rubbernecking as we pass a car crash on the freeway.

I think Tina Fey would make a better vice-president.

It's true that mcCain voted for the bailout bail, but shortly thereafter he urged bush to veto it if it actually got to his desk.

We make them lie. They can't get elected if they tell us the truth. Carter told us to buy a smaller car, put on a sweater and turn the thermostat down and BANG! outta there.
