When politicians have no stated position or personal views to address world and economic crisis brought on by eight years of a dysfunctional White House and Congress, pundits assume they will be attacking their opponents' character.
John McCain's political ad states: "I have a plan to improve the economy!" What plan? Would it be too much to ask to share it with the voters before the Nov. 4 election?
As a Republican, I am disgusted with the personal attacks on Obama as well as many other Americans, according to a recent CNN online poll. And then there is the Bill Ayers association. I'm sure 8-year-olds have many associations, none of which they have control over.
Once a convicted felon serves a sentence, he or she can work and resume life as a productive member of society with court-imposed conditions associated with the crime. Ayers was never convicted of a crime. But, in the political arena, he is guilty of association with presidential candidate Obama. No one has investigated their work improving Chicago's school systems.
So isn't it time for the McCain committee to address corruption in Washington and take a position, as opposed to slandering their opponents' character?
Washington politicians' lack of action borders on criminal activity. Their associations with lobbyists should be placed under a microscope. Come Nov. 4, voters have an opportunity to give the Washington old guard the boot.
I've heard enough lip service from Rep. Coble and Sen. Dole to last a lifetime. It is time for a housecleaning and change.
