I am not referencing the great stock market crash of 1929 with the title of this blog entry. I could see how one might assume this considering the fact that the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged 370 points yesterday.
The real reason I chose this title is that yesterday was "Super Tuesday," and in my opinion the results weren't that super. In fact, they were quite the opposite.
I cannot figure out for the life of me why John McCain and Hillary Clinton are currently leading in the delegate count. Has our country gone mad? The only other 2 people that would be worse in this position are Nancy Pelosi and Al Sharpton (if that ever happens I swear I moving back to Sweden, the land of my ancestors).
I'll step off my soapbox and save you the details of why I think our nation is making a huge mistake, but before I do I want to state one thing. If Barack Obama and John McCain end up being the nominees for the presidency I will not hesitate in voting for Barack Obama (Dad, if you're reading this post calm down and take a deep breath).
Why you may ask? Because I would rather have a "Carter-esque" type President in office for 4 years followed by a strong Republican President for 8 years than a liberal, washed-up Republican President in office for 4 years followed by Democrat President for 8 years. And if McCain is elected President this is exactly what will happen.
All right, enough about the candidates. Let's discuss the other disturbing issue related to this matter, the news media. Does anyone know what the actual delegate count is in this election? If you select the image attached to this post you will see the current delegate count as stated by the big 4 (CNN, NBC, FOX, CBS). What you will find is that they are all different and that certain liberal news agencies are distorting the facts to support their agenda. Look at the difference in the count between the most liberal (CBS) and the most conservative (FOX). Does this disturb anyone else as much as it does me?
I wonder what are Forefathers must be thinking about the state of our nation right now.
