What the hell is Mr. McCain thinking? I don’t understand this VP pick at all. I mean, great if you’re a democrat..but other than that…WTF?
1. She’s a fiscal conservative.
2. She’s against abortion going so far as continuing her last pregnancy upon finding out that her child would be born with Down’s Syndrome.
3. She wants to drill in Alaska.
4. She taxed the oil companies in Alaska, thereby deflating the notion that she’s a pawn of Big Oil.
5. She’s a woman which I’m sure they’re hoping will bring in all of those PUMA voters.
Dan, whats up with all of your uses of “OMG” and ‘LOL.” Are you secretly a 16 yr old girl? haha
Thankfully he didn’t call the VP candidate McCain’s BFF.
Seriously though, I’m stunned that they would try and go in this direction with the campaign. If they think they can get Hillary voters by selecting a woman that doesn’t support a woman’s right to choose… they’re so far off the reservation, it stuns me.
Also, for a campaign who railed on Obama for not having any experience to pick a VP with some of the most meager political experience that I have seen… is also very entertaining.
I thought it was funny that not 5 minutes after I saw the news on CNN I found the site http://www.vpilf.com
Sounds like a lot of sour grapes, since every time she gets attacked for lack of experience it’s going to bounce back on Obama two-fold. And as far as the abortion issue I can’t wait to see Biden try to debate her; they better strap him to the podium. Not that I agree with her position, but that is not an argument any 65-year old man should get into.
I fail to see how this can be sour grapes when the election isn’t over. No one has lost any thing, so there’s nothing to be sour over. Also, it’s not like the two camps were trying to get the same person for VP. This is just people wondering about why this particular person was chosen. There’s nothing to be sour about. Plus, I think I’d take Joe Biden over Sarah Palin as my running mate any day, so again, nothing to be sour about as, in this case, I think the Democrats won.
As for the experience issue, I agree that any criticism about her inexperience can then come back on Obama, but at the same time, there’s something deeply hypocritical about slamming a guy for six months about being inexperienced and then turning around and choosing a running mate with less experience.
Palin was not picked for her experience, she was picked to address the many talking points that the McCain campaign wanted to speak to, and to shore up any potential weaknesses, just as Biden was chosen to shore up Obama’s lack of foreign policy experience. What remains to be seen is who the undecided voters would rather have being one heartbeat away from the presidency.
There is a big difference between the VP being inexperienced and the President being inexperienced.
I think the big issue is the fact that there is an incredibly inexperienced VP being paired with a 72 year old with a history of health issues.
2 years ago she was the mayor of a town of 8,000 people. The fact that people even try to compare her political experience to that of Obama is just silly. She was picked because she was a woman… I just wish they could admit that.
Fox is trying to give her foreign policy experience by saying that her state is near Russia. Now that’s funny. I hear Pawlenty had plenty of experience due to the fact that Minnesota shares a border with Canada.
She also believes in creationism and wants it in every school.
