Glasheen Talks Politics….
It all began with a post from Adam, one of our very active Canadian "forumite" poster. What would a martial art site be without a couple of discussions pertaining to the USA’s next presidential election. . . [Check it out here]
He was *GASP* against torture.(too bad nobody applauded that)
I don’t agree with all his views, but at least he’s who he says he is, and unlike someone, he actually fought in a war and suffered for it.
It’s a shame he’s unpopular.
I like John McCain because he’s one of the few politicians who doesn’t pander to what the public wants. Most of the rest of them are spineless. John’s views have been pretty consistent for years. You know what you’re getting with him. His biggest weakness is a lack of charisma.
I saw Richardson being interviewed on Meet The Press a few Sundays ago. The guy’s a joke. He two-faces every issue he talks about. Forgetaboutit. He’ll never last.
Hillary is a polarizing figure, for sure. But as much as she scares me, she really is one smart cookie. I always thought the same about Bill Clinton. Most of his views scared the you-know-what out of me. But he was a very smart man who seemed to be able to get things done. More importantly, Clinton had a Republican Congress who wouldn’t let him spend a dime. It was a beautiful combination. That’s why we had balanced budgets.
