Default Candidates Comparisons

WOW. I know just about everyone's mind is made up here with regard to who they are supporting in the Presidential election, but the comparisons with regard to both candidates' experience/qualifications and community involvement is astounding!!

I still cannot believe any rational person who wants to see this country prosper and grow would entrust it into the hands of someone who has so little governmental experience, basically no qualifications and obviously doesn't appear to want to be bothered with interacting with community and philanthropic organizations, not only in his own state, but throughout the country he is campaigning to preside over.

This comparison was taken from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, who has always leaned to the left and in this election, has endorsed Obama.

so now were just irrational huh? lol. its getting deep here in "the bunker".

*puts on waders*

sorry but being a member of the "alfalfa club" just isnt gonna win mccain my vote.

looks like being a POW has "earned" mccain alot of token achievements and honorary memberships.

i cant believe more rational people dont place such emphasis on family values. after all, isnt obama an honorary member of the "dad of the year club" and permanent fixture of the "great husband's society"?

The description "irrational" is really giving you Libs too much credit. I'd have to say blindly following and voting straight party lines is more appropo, my dear hipcheese.

Y'know, not a one of you Libs has ever posted a rational (there's that word again! ) reason why you are choosing/chose to vote for Obama. Funny - another member made a big tadoo over his mistaken assumption that I voted straight GOP which I corrected him on. I've only been a member (proudly, I might add) of the GOP for a little over 4 years, but have voted for members of the Democratic party in state and local races since then. There are several Demos I will vote for in local and state races on election day. I just won't vote for Do Nuttin' and Juice.

I believe J-Mac being a POW, being willing to die for the country he loves, and staying actively involved in military and Veterans associations is quite honorable, Tony. If you want to believe that his "achievements" are "token", sad as it is, so be it.

In addition to McCain's "token military achievements", I found these also quite honorable:

Member, Council on Foreign Relations, 1997-present
Honorary Board Member, Hispanic Youth Foundation, 1997-present
Honorary Board Member, The Leonard Cheshire Foundation, 1997-present
Honorary Member, National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts Advisory Council, 1997-present
Honorary Vice Chairman, New Majority Council, 1997-present
Board of Trustees, Gallaudet University, 1995-present
Founding Member, Pacific Council on International Policy, University of Southern California, 1995-present
Honorary Advisor Board, Arizona Black Chamber of Commerce
Honorary Co-chairman, Advisory Board of Directors, Arizona Cancer Research Foundation
Honorary Member, Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
Honorary Member, Barry Goldwater Foundation
Honorary Member, Fifty-Five Years and Up Incorporated
Honorary Member, Board of Regents, Francis Scott Key Foundation
Honorary Member, The John Goodwin Tower Center
Honorary Board Member, Kids Voting Arizona
Board of Directors, Nixon Center for Peace and Freedom
Honorary Member, Board of Directors, Council of Notables, U.S.-Spain Council

So - what's on Obama's resume other than past and present associations with embezzlers, thieves, racists and bomb making hoodlums, smooth talk and ?

if you wanna make it personal just dont do it in the way that jeremy did. my voting recors stands for itself. mccain had every opportunity to win my vote. selecting caribou barbie as his running mate screwed that up (as it was his 1st MAJOR executive decision).

i bet his experience in the "alfalfa club" influenced that decision...

"Vote for me. I have 2 dozen of these hanging in my office-"

In all the your posts that I have read I have honored your right to your opinion. But the above statement crossed the line. For you to marginalize his p.o.w. experience speaks to your real ignorance and no matter what comes out of your mouth from here on out I will consider your opinion in line with things like pickled egg farts!

It really shows how desperate you are to defend your position without a shred of intelligence!

Fire away at me if you wish but like I said when you speak I smell fart!
