People say Barack Obama does not have enough political experience to lead the United States. Well look where experience has gotten us with President Bush.
I’m not sure about you, but I think we need some change. All I hear today is, “our economy is plummeting, jobs are being lost, Americans are losing their homes, we are falling into a recession.” Doesn’t anyone want a new person, with a new plan and new ideas?
I’m sure I don’t need to remind anyone of the recent factory closings in Erie County. The same has been happening all across the nation. People need to realize that a band-aid will not fix this ever growing wound. We need something larger and long lasting. We need a way to keep jobs in Erie County, and in America as a whole.
We desperately need someone different and I believe Senator Obama is that person. He understands the issues and concerns of the working class and how to protect our jobs. He knows what it means to get his hands dirty and to get the job done. He is everything our current “leader” is not. Our world is ever changing and we as Americans need to change along with it.
