    Miracles? Hrmph, that would imply that he's some kind of messiah and we all know he ain't that. At this point I'd settle for (t)he(m) just not making it worse.

    --->whoosh--->

    The cartoon brought home to me the question what would McCain have done? What would Palin do, if faced with those same problems all within a year and a half?

    Compounding the very real problems is a 21st Century presidency having to deal with channel-changing, text-messaging, viral e-mailing, Twittering, self-appointed experts wanting instant gratification. McCain has a wicked temper and would be throwing tantrums. Palin's self-image is so great, she would have just quit.

    The American people don't have the time or patience to waste with pointless "what ifs". People just want those presently in charge to handle the issues.

    They would have cut taxes to correct each problem and would be "studying" healthcare...beyond that, I really don't know

    Well, under McCain/Palin, the following would be different:

    1- The Healthcare bill that will bankrupt the USA would not have passed.
    2- The US Federal Gov't would not drop a lawsuit on Arizona for the immigration bill.
    3- The US foreign policy would not be to bow to dictators and appease Iran. Iran is emboldened and rapidly aquiring a nuclear weapon. Unspeakable evil could result.
    4- The economy would probably be no better, no worse. No president can fix that right now. But, I imagine businesses wouldn't be as nervous about higher taxes under McCain. Maybe would be more willing to take some hiring risks, especially knowing they aren't gonna be forced to pay healthcare for every worker they hire. That healthcare bill is a hiring issue also.
    5- The Black Panthers would be getting prosecuted by the Feds.
    6- The oil spill would still be just as bad. But McCain would've lifted the Jones Act and allowed all the foreign nations to help us instead of Obama refusing to lift it because it would hurt unions.




    But, to the original message of "No miracles yet".........you mean people are still having to pay their mortgages and put gas in their cars? GASP!!! And to think, Obama voters actually thought he was gonna pay their mortgages and gas bills for them.

    I thank Obama, I still have a job. Republicans wanted to ship all of them overseas.

    Could you imagine what would have happened if we elected McCain?

    He would have finished the destruction of the US that Republicans started under Bush.

    I think it's something about the end of the world will bring Jesus back, but it's never been clear why they want this country destroyed. All we know is they have worked tirelessly to achieve that goal.

    They would not have approved a billion dollar bailout that did not work nor a trillion and half dollar budget. They would not tell the people " don't read the bill, honest we know what is best" We would not have billions in new costs due to a failed Health care idiocy. We would not be looking at a doubling of the deficit in 4 years. Nor would 50 cents on ever dollar the fed spends be borrowed.

    Who holds the office of the presidency? Let's just stick with that question, because it is the reality.
