A look at the candidates

I'm sure I'm not alone in this thought, but on the way to work this morning I was struck by just how different these two men are when it comes to actually DEALING with problems.

Obama tells the world that IF he's asked, IF he's needed, he'll bother to show up for the JOB HE'S ACTUALLY BEING PAID FOR. Apparently though, the Democrat leadership doesn't think he has anything to offer to the discussion and hasn't asked him to come to work. As one caller to a morning talk show said today, it's as if Obama is being told, 'it's okay, you just go on and keep looking pretty, we'll take care of the work'.

McCain, on the other hand, took the initiative to suspend his campaign so he can focus on the bigger issue. Once again, we see that he is putting 'Country First', even over his ambitions to lead said country. The left goes on to whine about how a leader needs to be able to multitask. True, but a leader also needs to prioritize and delegate and at least McCain knows that a presidential campaign isn't as important as dealing with this financial mess.

Sarah Palin

I know, I've been pretty quiet over here lately, and that may not change much in the foreseeable future. BUT, I heard something the other day and my reaction to it made me laugh, and so I wanted to share-

On Dennis Prager's show this week he mentioned that he had read some lefty's who were calling Christian Fundamentalists hypocrites for supporting Sarah Palin for VP. After all, don't Fundies believe that the MAN is the head of the house?

My first thought was, Well, she wouldn't be the head of the house, she'd be the President of the SENATE!

Like I said, the thought made me laugh and so I wanted to share.

7 years ago

Lots of people have lots of wonderful tributes up today.

I remember.

I will never forget.

But life does go on.

This year, I chose to celebrate Patriot's Day. I thanked my husband for his service to our country, and I prayed for my son who is currently serving in Afghanistan.

I counted my blessings and prayed for all the victims of terrorism and their families and loved ones.

If you want more fitting tributes, look back at this date in past year's entries. Where I was, and what I felt has not changed...that will always be with me. But this year, I just don't really feel like reminiscing.
