Sarah Palin. An amazing choice by John McCain. She seems to have it all, brains, beauty, conservative credentials, and the Clinton campaign team. What more can a woman candidate ask for?
I wouldn’t trust the Clinton’s as far as I can throw them and fortunately they are a creation of the absolute loyalty that Democrats give one another no matter what. They are the problem that Democrats must contend with. They are a problem the Democrats should have cut loose of a long time ago.
I thought something was fishy when I first heard the Democrats reaction to Sarah Palin — that she doesn’t have the experience to be President, or even vice President.
Excuse me? That’s like saying the New York Jets made a bad decision in Brett Favre because he’s too old and the QB on the bench is a rookie. That the best decision would be to get a completely different rookie to be the starting quarterback and have an experienced QB sit on the bench. Isn’t that the essence of what we are hearing from the Democrat party?
Experience isn’t an important issue in the Vice Presidency, after all, the Vice President is going to get experience, the intelligence, and be the best suited for the job by working under somebody who does have experience. And exactly who’s bright idea is it to make Sarah Palin’s experience an issue when she has more experience in the executive than the starting QB for the other party? Barack Obama doesn’t have any executive experience. So why, if one is so concerned about the experience of the Vice President, would that same person support the candidate with even less experience in the Presidency?
Why indeed? When I watched the Democrat convention this past week, I needed some uppers just to stay awake… and at the rate the Democrats were going I should have overdosed. It was boring. No emotions stirred. I didn’t laugh, not even once. I got mad a couple of times during Barack Obama’s speech, but mostly because how annoying it is when somebody has no clue what he’s talking about, and people are listening to him on a large scale.
There were no memorable lines. There was no moment that made you jump out of your seat. There was no moment that made you say, “I’m voting for Barack.” And not even twelve hours after the close of the DNC convention, John McCain made this election memorable for all. And exactly who’s convention was it when Hillary Clinton has her night, the Bill Clinton gives a ten minute speech that takes 30 minutes to deliver. Yes they say all the right things… or at least appear to do so.
The Clinton era is coming to an end, and still they won’t go gently into that good night. I flipped on CNN and there was James Carville making the case that Sarah Palin just did not have the experience too lead and I couldn’t help but to wonder, is the Clinton group trying to undermine the Obama campaign by sending their surrogates out criticize the experience of McCain’s Veep nominee and in doing so, intentionally under cutting Barack Obama’s attempts to down play his own experience?
I like Sarah Palin, I wish she was the top of the ticket instead of McCain. Sheesh, what’s our electoral process coming to? First I supported Ron Paul, but when there was three I supported Hillary Clinton because I figured she was the best of the last, and I’m voting for John McCain because of his running mate. Not exactly my idea of a great election.
