Do you really believe that a candidate for Presidency has the right to make a difference?

No matter what is promised, it is not going to matter, the country is run by the government.. not by one man. I bellieve, the presidency is a shows. It doesn't matter who is elected.. Don't you think the whole thing is already mapped out already anyway??? Think about how everything is... Do you think that the gas prices are just dropping for the fun of it? NOPE, look back, it happens every election... Nothings going to change in this country guys.

  • Does the President have the RIGHT to make a difference? Yes.
    Can the President make a difference? Only with great difficulty and with the help of 500+ congressmen.
    When things don't work it is always blamed on someone else but it's really a mix - the problems have built up and are too big to tackle quickly, Congress wouldn't cooperate, the President didn't have a good plan to present, even the people (us) weren't behind the plan.

  • I think you are right. If Obama is elected and he fails to follow through with his promise he will blame it on the previous administration. If McCain is elected and fails to follow through with his promises he will blame it on the house and senate. Anyone counting on the promises that are being made actually being kept are fools.
