More of the McSame, or "You Take The High Road & I'll Take The Low Road..."

If you ask me (and no one did), in the midst of an economic crisis, a President needs to be clear-minded & resolute about the scope of the problem, what precipitated it & how he/she plans to deal with it. He or she also needs to reassure the American people that their President understands the pain of the uncertainty we are all facing. Of course, that's one way to see it. You COULD also use the understandable anxiety Americans are feeling at a time like this to try & sneak in a political gut punch by attacking the opposition instead of actually enunciating your own plan to address the crisis, especially when you don't really have much to offer anyway. Sounds an awful lot like the way the current administration handles all the messes it has created over these past few years.

Guess which option Obama chose & which McCain chose...
