Weigh in. Results are completely scientific.
Care to elaborate? Let fly below.
They are both exaggerating their accomplishments and denouncing each others. Overall McCain lies a large amount more. He flips things from real responses, answering the actual question, to what he wants to talk about. You can tell he is a mentor of Palin's in that respect. Aside from all of the back and forth though, he has no real concrete solutions that will take effect now, and all the things I have heard him propose have sounded unfeasible. Barack Obama has real plans that he goes into detail describing; however I would like to see much more than he already has talked about. Things will change if Obama gets into the White House, and things will change if McCain gets into the White House; the real question is this: Why bother voting for someone who has lied time and time again telling people he is something that he is not. McCain detracts people's thoughts from the things that matter and are based in fact. Claims that he had few ties in the media and politics growing up in Washington D.C. is something that escapes all questioning and it really is just irritating.
If I wasn't at school I would continue on and on. Just read McCain's various versions of his autobiography and other people's biographies about him, along with John McCain: The Myth of a Maverick and you'll understand where I am coming from.
Looks like McCain wins our poll. Hmm...the opposite of most media punditry and polls of American voters. Like I said, it's totally scientific....
