Obama won the South Carolina primary. I watched his victory speech last night, it was actually pretty moving. I watched Hillary’s too, but CNN cut it in half for a commercial break! Ouch.
I am always annoyed when the Democratic candidates talk about the foreclosure crisis. People are victims of buying houses they can’t afford?!
Naturally, they want to spread around government money and force loan companies to renegotiate loan terms with homeowners. Maybe the government can help me with car payments so I can get a new Jeep. As John McCain said, “…government action is the last resort and not the first.” This all points to a much bigger issuse, which I believe (with Barry Goldwater), stems from a fundemental belief in human nature. But that’s boring stuff…..
My knee pain has subsided for now due to a simple pair of insoles (Thank you Dr. Scholl!!!). A slow but painless 7 1/2 miles yesterday felt great! It’s been so cold in Georgia. I’m watching Roberta McCain on CSPAN. She’s John McCain’s mom and she’s ANCIENT. The interviewer asked, “What special moments do you remember John McCain’s childhood?” and she goes, “I don’t seem to remember any moments… really….” She answered about two questions now that … were…. actually never asked. It’s that awkward kind of feeling that you get when you get stuck next to an old “talker” on an airplane. Anyway, have a good week everyone.
State of the Union is on Monday, and two debates are this week!
