I was waking up from a cable news stupor the other day with the remote in my hand flipping back and forth between Fox News and MSNBC.  It was Obama this, McCain that, Obama this, MCain that. And what I started to notice was that the McCain campaign seemed to be defending it’s position and the Obama campaign seemed to be promoting it’s position. Most of you that know me know that I’m and advocate for positive thinking, or at least promoting what you want instead of what you don’t want.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not anti-McCain, I believe in his own way he can be a very independent thinker, but to focus on everything that Obama doesn’t have or couldn’t do seems to take away from any message that  he’s really trying to promote. I believe that is part of the reason Hillary lost the democratic nomination.  She focused more on what she didn’t want instead of what she wanted.  I appreciate Obama for trying to keep a more positive message. Change is a positive message. Keeping things the status quo is non-energetic, even malignant.  It’s my hope that McCain would stop focusing on Obama’s weaknesses and rather focus on his own strengths. I think a lot of this has to do with the fact that Obama seems to attract a lot of younger voters. The younger voters seem to be more up-beat, positive, happier and full of hope. That my friends, is contagious.

You may not believe me when I say this, I used to be an avid Fox News viewer from Steve Doocey to Sean Hannity. I’ve noticed over the last couple of months that I seem to hear or see is an anti-Obama message and I believe that doesn’t help McCain at all.  I think the media forgets that we no longer are as stupid as we were in the ’70s and ’80s. Most of us are able to make are own decisions.  Like attracts like. For the first time since I can remember, the American populace has a more positive vent in this election process than ever before. If Obama can still surf the wave of positivity he will be the next president of the United States. If John McCain can grab a board and ride the same wave then it’s up for grabs. This is an overall general feeling. Both sides have their pros and cons, but for right now it looks as if Barack has been focusing more on the pros.
