strike a nerve - 7/10/08

Oh, did i strike a nerve here? You seem quite upset over this one, and I haven't even watched the video yet lol ...

You got to read both sides, and something like this is just pure propaganda.

I might say the same to you ... a quick review of what we have sent back and forth shows you've sent nothing critical of McCain. I do read both sides (admittedly more lefty) but I just don't see the fun in sending you pro-McCain articles. We both know that all sides are guilty of slandering the opposite side (for example, http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/dishonorable.html and http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/obamas_stem_cell_spinning.html) ...

The intro to the website you sent says: "The current economic crisis demands that we understand John McCain's attitudes about economic oversight and corporate influence in federal regulation. Nothing illustrates the danger of his approach more clearly than his central role in the savings and loan scandal of the late '80s and early '90s." This implies that McCain was negligent towards oversight and regulation and therefore played a very important role in the current financial crisis.

I think, rather than accusing him of "play(ing) a very important role in the current financial crisis", it demonstrates his approach to such matters and his probable approach to the current financial crisis. Again, I'm not saying that either candidate has a better approach as I haven't studied them, but that's the way I read it ...

Were you out on the motorcycle last night? I was and took a ride by your place - your Harley was gone ... good day for a ride! We still on for the debate?
