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.

You know, that's the biggest criticism I've heard about Mr. Obama thus yet -- that he doesn't think for himself as much as pay attention to everything the party wants. And, I can't articulate this very well yet while I'm debating, but it concerns me that he claims and wants people to think of him as a Christian, but doesn't seem quite as concerned as some Christians with following all of its tenets.

I've heard very little about the financial mess so far, and most of what I have heard has been statements about how businesses shouldn't ask for their problems to be solved for them...but the thing is, you could say the same thing about individuals. Sometimes we have bad judgment (either individually and collectively) and we're supposed to work together to solve these things...and the economy is doing so many strange things right now.

Do you have links or anything to what Mr. McCain is doing to help clean up the mess?
