Two men are running for president. One is a helluva orator and his speeches are electrifying, but he promises many things that he cannot possibly deliver.

The other has trouble speech making and does not communicate well with the audience, but he is a sincere and honest man, sure to deliver all that he promised.

P.S. Being more specific, here’s a plan that would enable the government to save almost 5 million dollars.

A retired president’s pension currently is $191,300 per year, paid to him until he reaches 80-years-old. Let us assume that both McCain and Obama (one of them will be the next president) both make it to to age 80. Sen. McCain (now 72-years-old) would not be entitled to any pension, he would get ZERO, Zilch, Nada, pension, as he would reach 80 at the end of his possible 2 terms as president.

On the other hand, if 47-year-old Sen. Obama, (born August 4th, 1961) serves 8 years as a president, it would still be another 25 years until he reaches his 80th birthday. Therefore, after serving 8 years, Obama would collect 25 annual pension checks totaling $4,782,500. That’s why it would certainly make economic sense to elect McCain in November.

How’s that for non partisan thinking???
