2008 Presidential Race to the White House

With so many campaign adds on television, one would find it hard to select a candidate for this 2008 presidential election. Whenever I see these campaign ads on tv, I, unlike most people who sit there and watch, just quickly flip the channel.

Here are some examples of the many adds that have been showing frequently:

  • Who Do I choose?
  • Why should I choose them?
  • How can I choose?
Every time you turn the channels, some candidate is bashing somebody else. Although some candidates play more fairly, sometimes the lines get crossed, and voters lose sight of the candidates proposed solution to the real issues Americans face. I dislike that campaigning has to always be about look at what he's doing, or wearing. Help me understand what you are talking about and how you plan to do it! It is understandable that ads have but so little time to air, but give me something more about yourself than what the next candidate is doing. I know who I would like to vote for as my president, but for all the other candidates that are on the ballot, please get it together on these ads.

Linda, after reading some of our classmates' blogs, especially those entries focusing on presidential politics, it is refreshing to see someone with a level-headed view of the situation. We all tend to feel one way or another about who is right or wrong or which candidate is a better choice. However, publicly displaying a vehement fervor for one candidate leads me to worry about where our "educated" society is going and the emotional stability of current and future educators. An educator should focus on teaching independent thought not advertising their political points of view to their students.

Y'know, I was telling my kids this week how I was truly looking forward to Tuesday, as it would be the last time for a while that I would have to put up with stupid, annoying, hateful political ads. Now that it's all over, I like the little breath of fresh air I get when I just get to watch commercials about cars and other materialistic desires.
