Obama vs. McCain: Get used to it

Posted by Stephen on February 12, 2008

Settle down, get over any hard feelings you may have with your party’s choice and get used to Barack Obama versus John McCain for the honor of being the next President of the United States.

Obama will run on a “hope for the future” approach that will seek to inspire Americans while running on the most liberal voting record in the U.S. Senate.

McCain will run on experience and national security while trying to fight off members of his own party disgruntled at the Arizona Senator’s confrontational style in the media and on the floor of the Senate.

Obama is beating Hillary Clinton in nearly every demographic.

McCain is fighting what seems to be a losing battle against Evangelicals while winning with moderates and military families and supporters.

Obama hit the scene calling for a pull out of Iraq.

McCain has made it clear that he supports nothing less than victory in Iraq no matter the time line.

Obama is a hero of the streets of Chicago.

McCain is a military hero who suffered as a prisoner of war.

Obama will promote price controls and entitlements to support a health care program that will be, for all intent and purposes, a government run entitlement program.

McCain will fight against the notion that the federal government should create another level of bureaucracy and another tax supported program.

Obama will sell America on driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants.

McCain will call his plan sensitive and empathetic, but not amnesty. Both will claim a need to protect our borders, but who can be trusted?

Obama will roll back the tax cuts by President Bush to pay for some of the many social programs he will promote.

McCain will make the tax cuts permanent and will claim to balance the budget by slashing spending.

Obama will claim his address outside Washington makes him the outsider that will bring change to the Presidency.

McCain will suggest that America doesn’t need to provide on-the-job training. He will remind people that his tenure provides him with a distinct perspective while allowing him to address a plethora of issues.

Obama is black. McCain is white. Obama is tall. McCain is short. Obama has little hair. McCain has less. Obama touts his wife during the campaign. McCain brings along his mother who typically steals the show.

Obama will call McCain out of touch. McCain will call Obama wet behind the ears.

No matter how far the rhetoric goes, it is time to begin to get used to seeing and hearing Barack Obama versus John McCain. May the best man win….please.
