Just A Quick Note On The GOP Convention

Just quickly, on last night's speechifying by McSame - One has to wonder when the message of the GOP is about change when it has been in charge for the last 8 years is really authentic. Truly
It's like staging a revolution against yourself -- saying that the Republicans have got to go so the Republicans can move in and clean up the mess.
I find no means by which McSame/Palin will fix what they and their party led us into these past years. When they suggest:
I fight to restore the pride and principles of our party. We were elected to change Washington, and we let Washington change us. We lost the trust of the American people when some Republicans gave in to the temptations of corruption. We lost their trust when rather than reform government, both parties made it bigger. We lost their trust when instead of freeing ourselves from a dangerous dependence on foreign oil, both parties and Senator Obama passed another corporate welfare bill for oil companies. We lost their trust, when we valued our power over our principles.
The only message I carried away from the GOP convention was that it will be impossible for McSame and Palin to change in such as a way as to change what their party created. Indeed, Einstein may be right here - we cannot solve the problems we have using the same thinking we used to create them. The true measure of the McSame/Palin ticket will be to prove to us that they will be different than the last four years. So far, they have only given us more of the same, not the change they promise.
