Wait, so you're saying it doesn't count as bipartisan if it's such strong
legislation that EVERYONE on BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE likes Obama's idea?
Explain to me how that's not bipartisan!
Palin's "Bridge to Nowhere" boast is falling apart at the seams, her record as a
reformer is finally receiving some scrutiny because of her outrageous pork
barrel spending in Alaska, her Fannie/Freddie gaffe demonstrated her complete
ignorance of the national ecomony, and her complete lack of foreign policy
knowledge (let alone experience) is becoming increasingly conspicuous. The
press, after hailing her sophomoric gotcha speech at the convention, is finally
taking off the beer goggles and realizing what a disaster Palin would be.And people are coming around, too. McCain's bump is already receding
form yesterday's polls to today's. The more scrutiny Palin receives, the more
her selection reflects McCain's impulsive and imprudent judgement.The "Maverick" McCain voted with Bush 90% of the time. Seven of his closest
campaign advisers are longtime Washington lobbyists. McCain has had a chance to
change Washington. He ha squandered that chance.At the GOP
convention he stood up and hollered "Throw the bums out." And he hoped
Americans would be too stupid to notice that the Republicans ARE the bums!
Debunking The Obamason Bipartisan Myth. On Fox News Sunday this week, host Chris
Wallace interviewed Barack Obama's chief political strategist David Axelrod. At
one point, Chris Wallace asked Axelrod to list Barack Obama's biparistan
achievements during his time in the Senate. Axelrod, providing his standard
response, told Chris Wallace that Obama had been a leader in crafting Senate
ethics legislation and passing a nuclear non-proliferation deal. Wallace
astutely pointed out, however, both of those "achievements" were passed by
unananimous consent in the Senate. The truth is that Barack Obama has never
challenged his own party or worked across the aisle on a contentious issue. His
lack of bipartisan credentials is reflected by his 2007 voting record, in which
he voted with his fellow Democrats 97% of the time.
To whom are you supplicating when you say "give (be?) me Obama and Biden,
please. Please." Sir/Madam, no one is going to answer that plea, not God or any
other of the powers that be. You are the nutty one. Be sure to watch the
Palin/Biden debate. She will clean the Washington insider's clock. The
momentum has changed. Sarah Palin is Ronald Reagan in a dress. She has the
tenacity of a pit bull. She even loves her husband, says so publicly and gives
him a large share of the credit for her success. She is a genuine, American
heroine, a real woman. Go, Sarah, go. Your posting detractors are revealing
their pettiness and viciousness.
wow, has anyone seen the film of Palin thinking that God is behind us in the war
in iraq, and that God wants the oil pipeline too?How can any sane
person, Mormons included, vote for such an idiot? Not ready for prime time, is
the phrase you are seeking people.and now they say she will avoid
interviews because... well... because the interviews might be hard or caustic or
troubling or...so how will she handle the Russians? The IraniansGive be Obama and Biden, please. Please.Even Mormons can
see that Palin is nuts!!!
Why are the Democrat posters all complaining about Sarah Palin? She's just the
VP candidate!!! and most people like her!!! But you keep banging your heads
against her!!!McCain is the Candidate! He's the one you SHOULD be
attacking! and to me, he seems like the one people don't like so much! Yet you
keep attacking Palin and giving McCain a pass?Palin's speach was
great, McCain's sucked, but all you can talk about is Palin?Is this
another stupid Republican who worked a mysterious spell to make you Democrats do
EXACTLY WHAT HE WANTED YOU TO DO (ala George Bush and the war he got the
Democrats approve against their better intentions)??? And you fell for it?Do the Republicans have some sort of Jedi mind trick they play on the
Democrats to make them do EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANT, and EXACTLY WHAT THE DEMOCRATS
KNOW THEY DON"T WANT TO DO?
Hello there from a white heterosexual middle class pro-life married man who
loves hunting and eating meat. Governor Sarah Palin's home-run acceptance speech
sent chills of fear throughout the Democrat party and the Drive-By News Media.
Their war room launched a rapid response effort led by a special-forces team
from the Associated Press. AP sniper Dina Cappiello reported that the nickname
for Sarah Palin among environmentalists-wackos is the "killa from Wasilla,"
because she has a philosophy of "cut, kill, dig and drill." Palin's chief
environmental sin is that she doesn't buy into the man-made global warming hoax.
AP stormtrooper Eric Gorski handled the religious attack, accusing Palin of
hiding her true faith. "Sarah Palin often identifies herself simply as
Christian," he wrote, "yet John McCain's running mate has deep roots in
Pentecostalism, a spirit-filled Christian tradition that is one of the fastest
growing in the world. It's often derided by outsiders and Bible-believers
alike." The media views its job as scrutinizing her background, helping voters
determine her readiness to serve. Vote for McCain in November 2008
and his veep to.
No experience, no substance, no real voting record. The speech writers should
get paid lots of money for writing Obamas words. That is all they are is "just
words" he has done nothing but align himself with the wrong people, not champion
any worthwhile cause, has not led anything or anybody. I dont like voting for Mc
Cain but at least he has done more than vote "present". Present but not willing
to stand for anything.
Campaign promises make me want to puke, I have been listening to them for fifty
years and the most important part of these promises is missing. This critical
part is a plan to explain how the promise is to be accomplished. How can a
presidential candidate make all of these promises when he/she does not have the
power to make the promise a reality. Congress controls the purse strings and
must appropriate the funding required to complete any task. A President can
propose a budget, but congress must pass on it. A President can ask Congress to
support a project, but Congress must agree.The reality is that the
President has little power except for veto, which can be overthrown by a
two/thirds vote on congresses part. So when you wish to throw mud at the
President, just remember where thr real power is.
Obama is a man, yes, but highly inexperienced, and very well educated. He is
not ready for prime time, though he is photogenic.I want a
president, not a community organizer who never once in all his years working the
southside of Chicago ever pointed out corruption or had anyone sent to jail for
corruption. Now he admits that the surge in Iraq has succeeded but he won't
admit that he was wrong in not supporting it. He and his Dem friends in the
Senate would have ceded a loss of the war in Iraq if it were not for Senator
McCain and others like Joe Liebermann with some guts. The irony of
it all is that if Obama is defeated it will be because he did not put your
Hillary on the ticket.
As a woman, educated, I vote democrat. Palin is a woman, yes, but highly
inexperienced, and uneducated. She is not ready for prime time, though she is
photogenic.I want a vp, not a sports announcer.
I have always thought these polls miss a major target -that being the 18-35 year
old who don't have a land line phone and therefore are missed in the polling
calls. I think the truth will out in the near future about Sara Palin and
the public will run to the voting booth and punch the straight ticket for
Obama.Remember, the Prez signs over temporary power to the VP when he has
a colonoscopy, and that woman having any power is scary. I am a woman, voted
for H.C. but that doesn't mean I would vote for S.P. not in a heart beat
Let me make a light suggestion to folks on both sides of this fence: ignore the
polls. There will be new polls every week, yadayadayada.....and come November
11, they STILL won't really know where the chips will fall, until the votes are
all in. I already predict that McCain will get 5% more votes at the booth than
the polls will predict. Whether that's enough or not, who knows.....
Your post was "right on". History will vindicate President Bush regarding Iraq
and in many other ways. The Great One who walks on water and parts the seas has
reached his high water mark and will begin to lag consistently in the polls
except for an occasional bounce from some half-truth or exaggeration from the
Obama camp temporarily dominating the headlines. The bloom is off the rose.
Sarah Palin is a red, white and blue blooded American woman who has awakened and
invigorated a sleeping giant, the Republican base. You rabid detractors who
continue to malign her will do so at your own risk. The back-lash will continue
to be resounding. There isn't a family in America who can't in some degree
relate to Sarah Palin's family adversities. To deny it would be hypocrisy. The
last I checked we are not electing a citizen of the world with his leftist,
globalist ideas but a president of the United States of America who in his/her
oath of office swears to defend the United States of America against all
enemies--foreign and domestic, including the likes of B.O. Country first!!
Upward and Onward McCain/Palin.
I would have rather seen Mitt in the White House but McCain/Palin is definately
the lessor of to evils.
....."Obama will avoid having to give real, solid answers to real, solid
questions. He will be paraded, feted and photographed. But interviewed? No,
except on MSNBC with softball questions from Chris Mathews".McCain's
mother is 96 years old and spry as ever. I think McCain will live for years to
come. Oh yes and make sure you put down a woman being in the White House. That
is really a winning strategy. Dems don't get it. Every time you put this woman
down it helps McCain. Dems, make sure you keep pointing out how horrible the
last eight years have been and how terrible this country is. We had a national
presidential election four years ago and the country had a chance to evaluate
the situation then and a majority voted to retain Bush. Oh and let's make sure
Bush gets no credit for keeping the country safe for the last eight years when
all the experts expected another attack. By the way Dems, Bush is not on the
ticket and McCain is not Bush no matter how hard you try to connect the two.
The last two posts are a classic example of sour grapes.The world is
unfolding as it should, McCain and Palin are winning.
No more LIES, WAR, OIL THIEVES, FALSE PATROTISM, DIRTY BUSINESS AND 8 MORE YEARS
OF "BUSH"INESS"!!!They havent talk about Daddy Bush, WHY?
The Palin bounce came in. But it is only with the true believers, who would
have voted for McCain anyway at the end.The next 8 weeks will be fun
to watch. Palin will avoid having to give real, solid answers to real, solid
questions. She will be paraded, feted, and photographed. But interviewed?
No... few and far between...one heart beat away, and a 72 yr. old
guy ahead of her, and the nuclear button sitting in the office, of a woman who
thought that going to Iraq was an answer to God.that is what will
defeat the gop if she ever interviews enough to let the people know who she
