Comments on: Presidential candidates: Love ’em and Lehman http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/10/22/presidential-candidates-love-em-and-lehman/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: IMOH http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/10/22/presidential-candidates-love-em-and-lehman/#comment-353014 Thu, 23 Oct 2008 22:12:29 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/10/22/presidential-candidates-love-em-and-lehman/#comment-353014 First – If McCain were running a more negative campaign then there would be more negative stories about Obama, not McCain.

Second – People are tired of the lies, unfortunately – both candidates lie.

Third – These stories greatly impact how people view someone. If there are two people, who both have good and bad attributes, and all you know is what I tell you about them. If I tell you the good things about one and the bad things about the other, you are going to have a skewed perspective about them both.

If you want to know about the potential presidents then you need to listen to the media from different sources (liberal and conservative) and take what they say, do some research, and find, well, as close to the truth as you can get. It isn’t easy, it is time consuming, but if you really want to know who you are voting for that is what you have to do.

But I also thnik proplr are tired of the lies. We all know we need to make changes. Obama/Biden are looking to the future. They want to rebuilt us. McCain/Palin want us to stay in war in Iraq. We need to get Bin Laden. McCain doesn’t want to do that. He wants to keep the oil contracts going in Iraq. We aren’t stupid Mr McCain, shame on you for knowing it and still wanting to keep our kids there and not going after what we started.

Sometimes if it looks like a duck….
