Bush, Bush, Bush

I'm really getting sick of people focusing this year's presidential election on George W. Bush. Wake-up! The Democratic candidate is Barack Obama and the soon-to-be Republican nominee is John McCain. Consider those two. And the obvious fact that neither is George W. Bush.

Below is a recent message board post I made in response to political discussion taking place in my fantasy baseball league:

I've said this before but...I still think it's ridiculous to compare everything to Bush. As far as I'm concerned he is a non-player in this year's presidential election.

We need to think about what this nation needs in the next 4 years. Also the future. Whether that involves fixing or addressing items the "past 8 years" have led into, forget about how it happened. Finger pointing is simply idiotic and gets us nowhere. John McCain is not George W. Bush, nor anyone else.

10% change was a brilliant number produced by Obama, and we have to understand that just like with the selection of Palin, it was a vote-getter.

WE have something more important than votes to give. WE have a leader to elect.

Your thoughts are well-expressed. Knowing my interests you won't be surprised when I say that despite the volatility of issues being mentioned by both candidates, I can virtually guarantee you that neither candidate will DARE mention anything about the need to spend a huge amount of money on revamping the public transportation system --- to include a high percentage of it going to passenger rail --high speed or otherwise.

Seth: This is not a response to your latest post--sorry. I'm trying to do my due diligence on maple grove golden retrievers--we are looking to get a puppy--and your blog came up. Would you recommend them? Any info you have would be helpful as I can't seem to find anything about them on the internet. Thanks!

My wife and I are very glad we brought a puppy home from Maple Grove Golden Retrievers.

Our puppy is now over 10 months old. He is wonderfully tempered and he has developed great classic looks as he is now near his full size.

Michele at Maple Grove has stayed in contact with us all along, and right off the bat sent us a few helpful reminders for vaccinations.

Feel free to shoot me a message at seth.c.burgess@gmail.com with any specific inquiries you may have!
