batman!

*feels very daring*

I heart our president. Very much. Why?

You know how the economy's kind of mucked up right now, due to the whole Freddie and Fannie implosion thing? Well, in 2003 Bush (perhaps not personally, but his administration: people he selected) proposed revamping the regulations for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac--which congress blocked. And now he (or, again, his administration) has reacted swiftly, and apparently, in the only way likely to keep everything from going down the drain. And has explained the situation in a very clear, almost encouraging way. (And congress does . . . what? Run away?)

Also, this is kind of scary. Just what kind of change are the Democrats pushing for?


P.S. I heart Sarah Palin, too.


ETA: Here's a more detailed breakdown of who was behind Freddie and Fannie reaching this point, and who tried to prevent it. (One of the latter was--guess who?--McCain. I kind of heart him too.)

Wow, that's a whole slew of eye-openers for me!! Especially The Anchoress' site--for that link alone I could hug you, she's just on top of EVERYTHING, and boy, is it nice to see a fellow Catholic representing so vigorously and so well those of us who take our faith and its worldview seriously!

I usually don't delve into the news very deeply, though I do try my best to get a clear sense of the candidates' aims and strategies (and personalities). But I'm getting more info this time around than I have in the past, and I find I'm becoming less and less frightened of the idea of ending up with President Palin (McCain I have no qualms about!), and more and more frightened of the possibility of ending up with President Obama.

Don't you worry, Brat--your views are not as unpopular as you may think, and it seems possible that these crises may make that even more true in days to come, as people get a good look at the way the candidates and their respective parties react.

Besides, I have to say, it's pretty darn cool to be on this side of the blog, too, seeing a fellow staunch SGA fan step up and speak out for the "conservative" view. On LJ, no less!! You're a gem. ^^
We went to visit friends today, and for the last 20 minutes or so (by which point we were in more or less small-town Americana) there were McCain signs on most of the front yards. And one lone Obama sign. It made a nice switch from my trip into Philly last week, where there were only Obama signs. Although it's kind of depressing to know that my vote come November won't make any difference because as Philly goes, so goes PA, and Philly is pretty staunchly Democrat.

. . . And that was going to tie in with what you said, but I've forgotten how. Anyway, I figured it was about time I spoke up in public. I'm trying to do that a little more. Ought to do that about my faith as well, I think, but that's closer to my bones and harder to put into words. (Which is probably a sign that I need to think and read and talk about it more; if you can't phrase it simply and in your own words, my dad likes to say, you don't actually know it.)
