We need president of action, not talk

  • Follow Letters

From the debates, it is clear that only one candidate has the wherewithal to be president -- that is the one with the foresight to take action on the problems with Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.

Consider John McCain: In 2005 John McCain co-sponsored S. 190 [109th], the Federal Housing Enterprise Regulatory Reform Act of 2005 to improve regulations and monitor issues like minimum capitalization, risks and "golden parachutes." That's over three years ago.

Consider Barack Obama: From Friday's debate, Obama said he "warned" us in 2006 and "wrote to the secretary of the Treasury" last year. Ooooo, now there's a man of action. When Iran pops a nuke over Israel, "President Obama" can say, "I don't understand, I wrote Ahmadinejad a letter."

What a farce. The choice is clear : We need a man of action, not talk.
