Neither, Obama or McCain is a good choice thats why I don't watch the debates. We are stuck between a rock and a hard place. Nobody can name one good thing that Obama has done for his constituents. When he had a chance to prove to the people he will work for their best interest, he sided with Exelon. He changed the wording, from mandatory to voluntary, in favor of Exelon about informing the public of any leaks of Exelon's Nuclear Facilities. Affiliates of EXELON and EXELON employees are some of the top fund raisers for Obama. They are also part of his CAMPAIGN CAST.

He lacks good judgment. He went to the same church for 17 years and now tells us he is not in agreement with the pastor. It took him 17 years to realize this. We cannot afford for him to learn in that much time. We need good and sound solutions now not 17 years from now.

This guy will do and say anything to get elected including lie if he had to. There are a lot of other reasons why Obama is a bad choice.

Then you have McCain. The bad thing about McCain is that he is a Republican. In 8 years the price of gas went up from $0.90 to $4.80. We have an unjustified war in Iraq costing about $300,000,000.00 a day. Then we have to bail out the financial institutions at a tune of $700,000,000,000.00 because the Administration took their eyes off the ball. They should have had safeguards to prevent this things from happening.

BUT MY MONEY IS STILL ON McCAIN, NOT BECAUSE HE IS A REPUBLICAN BUT BECAUSE HE IS AN AMERICAN. I BELIEVE THAT AT THIS TIME OF CRISIS PARTY AFFILIATION WILL BE SECONDARY WHEN IT COMES TO SOLVING THE MANY CRISIS WE ARE NOW IN.

I am a Democrat and supported Hillary.
