Both candidates seem decent, and fairly similar.
Which candidate will be able to actually deliver?

The Democrat, Mr. Varien.
The board majority is Democratic, and the GOP members have little power, and no influence.
That is the reality.

If the question is which candidate will reduce
the cost of Government then it's a no brainer.
Republican=lower costs
democrat=higher costs--very simple. Just look at what is happening in Washinton. Can't wait til November.

However, that is rhetoric and not practice.
Experience tells us that in reality, Republicans drive up the cost of government, and lower our standard of living.

What is happening in Washington is that the costs of the Bush administration are still being paid. We will pay for GOP incompetance for decades, perhaps generations. We cannot afford any more Republicans.

Wow, that is some statement with no backing. Have you taken a look at what Obama has spent? Have you really looked at it? So, Mr. Bill, instead of creating this "bunch of baloney" topic where you ask for comments, why don't you just come straight out and say you want the Democratic candidate? Another slimy liberal.

Bayview you are right on the money. All this guy bill does is blame Bush for everything. Like a broken record-blah,blah,blah.Bill is another slimy
liberal. You know who this guy is backing. His hate for Bush is venomous. This guy has nothing new to say--same old crap. 5 months to go.

Don't worry Small People....he'll eat his words in Novemeber. Now, I am not saying the Repubs are the answer. In fact, I think they are just about as dirty as the Dems, but at least they are not trying to destroy our great country as fast as the Dems. They buy us a little time. It is ashame those who think like Mr. Bill. Just goes to show you how much the gene pool has been diluted and corupted over the past few years.

Yes.
What "Obama has spent" has been to stave off Bush's Depression; and to continue the "You broke it you bought it" adventurist war that Bush started. And Soundview is better than Bayview.

And Mr_Bill did not 'create' this topic, but did post it to remind voters of the local special election tomorrow, Tuesday, June 22.

The damage that Biush did will cost the USA for decades. You may deny that, but then you are a liar.

Feel free to blame Obama for the gains or losses of his major thrust: Health Care Financing; but to blame Obama for Bush's ruin of the economy, or ruin of war; is to blame the carpenter for the damage the prevous tenants did when you get his bill.
