One thing that I find incredibly annoying is that both main-stream candidates have claimed they forsaw the current problems we’re facing in the economy.

Here’s McCain:
“My friend, I’d like you to see the letter that a group of senators and I wrote warning exactly of this crisis. Sen. Obama’s name was not on that letter.”

Obama has said very similar things as well.

Here’s the thing: you’re a group of senators.  You are some of the most powerful people in the country, and able to evoke change in the system.

Yet instead of doing so, you just wrote a fucking letter.  And I’m supposed to be impressed?  I’m supposed to vote for you because the best thing you could do, when faced with certain economic disaster, was compose up a little letter?

I’m not sure what I’d prefer: blisfully ignorant or bluntly incapable.  Oh what’s that?  We only get the second option?  Guess we’ll have that then.
