SARAH PALIN


In what can only be categorized as one of the strangest political seasons in many years, I find myself as a once Democrat, Hillary supporter, and moderate supporting the John McCain and Sarah Palin ticket.

The MSM has been so blatantly pro Obama, that the wholesale smearing of Sarah Palin is just another example of the desperation and extremism that has been the hallmark of Obama’s campaign for change. The following is a partial list of rumors used to slime

Sarah Palin:

Summary

  • Palin did not cut funding for special needs education in Alaska by 62 percent. She didn’t cut it at all. In fact, she increased funding and signed a bill that will triple per-pupil funding over three years for special needs students with high-cost requirements.

  • She did not demand that books be banned from the Wasilla library. Some of the books on a widely circulated list were not even in print at the time. The librarian has said Palin asked a “What if?” question, but the librarian continued in her job through most of Palin’s first term.

  • She was never a member of the Alaskan Independence Party, a group that wants Alaskans to vote on whether they wish to secede from the United States. She’s been registered as a Republican since May 1982. Palin never endorsed or supported Pat Buchanan for president. She once wore a Buchanan button as a “courtesy” when he visited Wasilla, but shortly afterward she was appointed to co-chair of the campaign of Steve Forbes in the state. Palin has not pushed for teaching creationism in Alaska’s schools. She has said that students should be allowed to “debate both sides” of the evolution question, but she also said creationism “doesn’t have to be part of the curriculum.”

    The fact that you were once a Hillary supporter and have now switched to the GOP is very telling. Sarah Palin goes against everything Hillary believed in and supported.

    If you think Palin is more ready than many of those qualified in the GOP, you are mistaking. She is a gimmick (a smart move by McCain) to lure all of the Hillary supporters and its apparently working but she will be exposed everyday until election day. Can’t wait to se the debate between Palin and Biden, oh wait, the GOP is tightening her Q&A’s to protect her. Nevermind.

    Dave:

    I have not switched to the GOP. My vote for the McCain/Palin ticket is because the new Democratic Party is so far left as to be inhabitable by any independent or moderate like myself.

    With the exception of the pro-life/pro-choice differences being the most pronounced, Sarah and Hillary are both pragmatic politicians. And, thank you very much, but I’ll take the experience of a mayor and governor who has negotiated a 30 billion dollar deal with the oil companies any day. I’ll take the experience of a woman that has actually had to make a payroll over a history lecturer steeped in theory, any day.

    This is a pick of country over party for all HRC supporters that are voting for McCain/Palin.

    A McSame win in November = a third term for Bush

    McCain and that wacko fundie Palin are everything American stands against.

    Vote Obama.

    I would rather have a third term for Bush than a first term of another Fidel Castro. I dislike McCain but will gladly vote for him over Change I cannot trust. Obama has gone from anti-war to a warmonger now warning us through Powell and Biden of “something big”. Every promise he ever made will go down the toilet the day after he’s sworn into office. Mark my words!!

    You are right to feel afraid.

    Sarah Palin is AMAZING!!!

    She has an 85% approval rating in Alaska…76% by democrats!!!…she is off the charts!

    No one ever tells you that in the main stream media do they?… Don’t believe me… just “google” this and you will find her rating easy.

    Actually, those numbers are a bit dated, although she is still quite popular in Alaska. But you are dead wrong. That topic was discussed all over the “MSM” as you say. Her popularity in Alaska was never questioned. The “negative” coverage of Palin was a direct result of her own obvious ineptitude. She simply couldn’t handle the questions. What was the “MSM” supposed to do? Pretend like she could? The “negativity” came directly from Palin, unfiltered.

  8. Anyone who doubts the extreme bias against Palin is nuts. Biden did a gaffe a day almost and was totally shielded. He told 32 lies in his VP debate.
    Palin’s interview with Couric was carefully edited and did you know Katie consulted with Obamatons about what to ask?

    Phelbin and Dave drank the Koolaid. As did many who ignored the FACT Obama taught the Marxist ideas of Alinsky and worked them to perfection in his class warfare campaign and in his refusal to be accountable to the constitution. How can he swear to uphold that which he holds in such low esteem?

  9. John:

    Phelbin and few others who continue to visit here have, indeed, drunk from the Kool-Aid . . . one might say in copious amounts.

    I’m not sure why they continue to post their comments here, but as long as they remain respectful I’ll let their opinions stay.
    Talking to each other is better than not attempting any discourse.
