But Mr. President, you promised

  1. Hey 30,
    I have a feeling this won’t be the only campaign promise that won’t be kept. But you’re right – this is just absurd. It was nuts when Clinton instigated it and it’s stupid now. For some reason though, it appears that our ‘leaders’ don’t really care what we think, eh?
    They only care what we think when they’re jonesing for our votes or our money. About all we can do is vote for the candidate we think will do the best job, and then sit back and watch what happens.

  2. Campaigning and governing are not the same. President Obama understands this quite well. Seriously, would you vote for a Republican over the president 4 years from now if he does not keep his campaign promises? Not a chance, I say.
    I vote the candidate, not the party. But as it happens, Colin Powell is the only Republican I’ve wanted to vote for for several years now, and he’s washed his hands of the political scene (can’t say I blame him).

... and that's my two cents
