I came home to the wife watching it last night...I went straight to the shower and then my room.
She asked me why I didn't watch it, I said "There are only so many times I want to hear promises from a politician...it's just talk"
It's starting to look like she may vote for him ...
She likes what he has to say.
I made the mistake of asking her what she thinks about McCains history, his track record, his level of experience...she took it as an attack on Obama when I asked about his record.
I then reminded her that a campaign is where the politician tells voters what they want to hear to get their vote....that looking at a politicians historical track record & achievements is a very important way to guage what to expect from them.
The mistake had been made, I breached a topic I KNEW I shouldn't have....
At the point where it became apparent that I was the bad guy for putting down a living saint I sauntered into the dining room and sorted through the mail for a Victoria's secret catalogue I knew was there from a few days back.
Suddenly the heated "passion" was diverted by the same level of thinking that has aroused interest in Obama in the first place.
Oh come on Mark. He said he is lowering my taxes and lowering the cost of my health insurance premiums. That means more money for me. And man i am glad he is stopping the government from gambling (privatizing) away my social security... that sound scary.
