DNC Not For Me

Ever since the democratic convention came to Denver, everything has been about politics. But the truth is, I'm not all that interested in politics. I don't understand the strategy used.

Ever since the democratic convention came to Denver, everything has been about politics. But the truth is, I'm not all that interested in politics. I don't understand the strategy used. Take commercials for example, in a McCain commercial, he says that Obama wants to raise taxes, which will create fewer jobs. Then, in an Obama commercial, he says he wants to create five million more jobs. They also spend more time talking negative about the other candidate than they do talking positive about themselves.

 

I especially don't understand the convention. How are all the delegates tied into it? Does the candidate choose his running mate? Who all takes part in creating the platform? There are too many questions that boggle my mind. In debates, the candidates (for the most part anyway) only tell half of the truth. Sometimes, candidates have to answer questions that don't have any thing to do with the election. That's why I don't really like politics. So even with all the political events going on, I probably won't be interested to go to any.

 

Maybe I would be more interested if the presidential candidates had to compete in Olympic events like swimming and running. To make it harder they would have to go up against people like Michael Phelps. The better they did the more votes they got. Or, maybe if sports legends ran I would be more interested. I would more likely watch a debate between LeBron James and Alex Rodriguez than Obama and McCain. It might be funny to see Shaquille O'Neal dressed in a suit with a fake mustache. Then I'd definitely be interested in politics.

  1. I know what you mean abou…
    I know what you mean about the attack ads. They’re petty and I think it makes a candidate sound inmature. Both McCain and Obama posted attack ads. However, I love politics, so while I don’t approve of attack ads, they make the race even closer.

  2. i get where you are comming from…
    i get where you are comming from, and the pressures of the race falling on our town, although, in a sense, the convention being in denver is a blessing. It helps the city not only economically, but also in the way people all over the globe view Colorado as a state and denver as a city. I like the fact that we are no longer just a podunk little ski village, we have political value
