Sarah Palin 2, Obama 0
Posted by Casey on August 29, 2008
I had the distinct honor of breaking the news about Palin on my radio show this morning literally 30 seconds after it has been leaked while hinting at it since 5:00 am pacific time, and at least a half hour before the official confirmation. I have been rooting for Palin for the past week and a half. Literally, everything that we conservatives have wanted to send to Washington D.C., to fix the attitude of appeasement that Republicans have been engaging in lately, is in Governor Palin. She is a perfect conservative, and I make no qualms about saying it. I’ve been telling the people at my studio to watch out for her for the past several days.
As we broke the announcement that she was the VP choice I fielded calls from listeners that were upset it wasn’t Romney because no one knew who she was. I assured them that in 2 weeks time they would know, and love, Palin. Little did I know that it wouldn’t take 2 weeks at all. In only took 2 minutes of her stellar speech today to, as my co-workers said, “make the hair stand up on the back of everyone’s neck.” I literally can’t remember a better political speech than what she delivered today in Ohio.
I took it upon myself to introduce Palin to the audience that seemed a little concerned about her lack of name recognition. As I began explaining how Palin encompasses everything conservatives have been looking for, the calls started coming in from conservative after conservative who was now fully motivated to support McCain. The bottom line is that Obama was losing to McCain even with conservatives not being enthusiastic about him. Now, conservatives are more motivated, enthusiastic, and flat out thrilled than I have ever seen them in this election cycle. Even the Ron Paul supporters can’t criticize Palin, and they’ve been able to criticize every other candidate on the GOP side of the aisle.
So why is Palin leading on the scoreboard? It literally took 2.3 seconds for Obama’s campaign to insert their terrorist riddled foot in their own ass by once again attacking small town America.
Barack Obama’s campaign is blasting John McCain for putting “the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency.”
So right off the bat Palin wins points with the majority of states in the union because of the massive number of smaller towns in the US. Plus, Obama has once again showed himself to be an elitist who criticizes small-town America. Remember the whole “bible-thumping” comments.
Then there is the speech that she delivered today. I would like to point out that I could easily give her more than a 2 point lead over Obama, but I’ll just factor the overall beat down she gave in her speech as 1 point. I’d also like to point out that she came out with the biggest, shiny flag lapel pin you could ask for from a candidate. Clearly a dig at Obama’s flag pin gaffe, and one that will not be forgotten. Not to mention, Palin was announced on McCain’s birthday, and Palin’s anniversary. You can’t write this great of a story.
You will see the attack that Palin is inexperienced, and McCain is a hypocrite for attacking Obama as inexperienced. THIS IS A HUGE MISTAKE LIBERALS! There, I gave you fair warning. Don’t attack her experience.
First of all, 2 years as a governor is more executive experience than a full term as a US senator.
Second, she was a two-term mayor in Alaska before she was governor. She has a ton of executive experience which dwarfs everyone looking to end up in the White House. This includes McCain, Obama, and Biden. That’s right, she is more experienced than any of them in terms of running an executive branch of government. No on made the argument that Rudy Giuliani wasn’t experienced enough to be president since he was only a mayor.
Third, she also has legislative experience. Palin served two terms in the Wasilla City Council before becoming mayor. She is the only one of the four players who has both legislative and executive experience. So there is no way to make the experience argument to stick if properly defended.
We also can’t forget that Palin defeated a corrupt governor in the Republican primary, without support from the Alaskan GOP. She then went on to win the general election over her Democrat opponent, also without support from the local GOP. Why didn’t she have the local GOP’s support? Because they were corrupt, and she exposed it.
She is also the person who killed the “bridge to nowhere”, and challenged the polar bear being put on the endangered species list because the polar bear is thriving.
She is squeaky clean on the oil lobby argument Obama’s camp is trying, but she is friendly to drilling and alternative energy. She has NO BAGGAGE! The only issue is an investigation into firing a commissioner shown to be corrupt … big deal!
She cut taxes by 60% as mayor.
Rest assured … in a couple weeks time you will see just how scared the libs are of this woman.
How is Biden going to challenge her on Iraq when her son will be in Iraq as an infantryman?
How is Obama going to challenge her when he supports letting a living baby die in a closet while she chose to have a baby with down syndrome? For those of you who think she will be too busy to be VP because of her baby … she returned to work three days after giving birth as governor of Alaska.
There is a ton more to this, and why Palin is the perfect conservative pick, but I’m running out of time. If you are concerned about this … don’t be … unless you are a lib. The libs are in HUGE trouble here.
Here’s her stellar speech today in Ohio.
