CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - McCain promises ‘change’ in speech to RNC « - Blogs from CNN.com does mccain have no original ideas? from bush's policies to Obama's "change" rhetoric, are you for real mccain? every election one party cries "change", and every election it never comes. now its both parties claiming "change", great. i love mccain's "change", its the same thing republicans always seem to promise, smaller government, no earmarks, control spending, until they get in office and spend their asses off. if both campaigns completely dropped the word "change" from their rhetoric, and just talked issues, i'd have more respect for both of them. and honestly, i'm an Obama supporter, and i believe in a lot of his positions, but the change rhetoric does nothing for me. but i guess when elections are geared for the average uninformed vote, thats why we get such rhetoric.
