This is what people fail to realize.


Other than each having a female anatomy, she and Hillary have virtually NOTHING in common. I mean zilch, zero. Hillary supporters will not vote for George Bush in a dress, they just wont.


Other than having the same color skin, the 95% of blacks who voted for Harvard/Princeton Barack and Michelle have zero in common with the Obamas.

And Hillary supporters were already polling at 20% for McCain BEFORE Palin was named the VP. I doubt that number is going to drop.

And you're forgetting that Obama pissed off the voters in Ohio and Pennsylvania already. Palin is a perfect fit to win these blue collar, white, soccer mom states.

Even if McCain doesn't win Pennsylvania, which he doesn't have to, he now is forcing Obama to spend time and money in PA.

And we haven't even gotten into discussing Michigan yet. Obama dissed Michigan by taking his name off the ballot there. He dissed Florida too.

People are thirsty for change. Obama WAS change six months ago. Now that he picked Biden, he's status quo. McCain now owns the word "change," not Obama.

It really doesn't matter who the candidates are. No one I know ever votes FOR someone; they always vote AGAINST the opposing ideology.

Like they used to say: Democrats would vote for a Yellow dog if it was a democrat.

It also works both ways.

I don't believe there is really any such thing as a "Swing voter"

OK guys, here's the deal. The board is VERY busy and there are less than 20 staffers on right now. If you see something on the board in the future like what everyone was complaining about on the board a couple pages back, use the Complains/Suggestions function in your Member Center and we will see it a lot quicker.

Thanks.

By the way, this totally destroys the whole Obama pitch that McCain is just like GW. Obama is going to have to change his whole strategy.



eh.....how exactly do you come to that conclusion?

Because Cheney is a male and she is a female?

.....thats the only thing i can see different....

Just by viewing her bio and personal record I would say that she is probably more like George W. Bush than Mccain is.


Even the dumbed down pronunciation of nuclear (new Q ler) during the press conference today was classic Bush shenanigans

Lol, you call her inexperienced, barry is from my state, he is an idiot and only won by default. 4 years as a law maker who skipped voting 122 times and only voted present.

She has been mayor and is now governer of a state, not some lackey law maker. She is stronger than blowhard joe and barry combined.

It's almost comical watching Dems squirm in desperation today. They know Obama should have picked Hillary. If he did, he was a lock. They know that McCain's selection of Palin was THE perfect strategic choice with the perfect strategic time to pull the rug out from under Obama.

Now they are reduced to criticizing Palin for her pronunciation. Let's stack that up against Biden's shameful resignation from the Presidential race for being caught lifting entire passages from another politician's speech, even down to fabricating a more interesting life story.

There is a saying, "Pride comes before the fall..." Obama will become the poster child for this expression. His failure to pick Hillary as VP opened this door for McCain. Unless Biden drops out and is replaced by Hillary, Obama stands little chance of winning.

I was purely undecided. I will probably be leaning more towards McCain as a result of his VP pick of Sarah Palin for several reasons.

1. She took on a corrupt republican administration and in the face of much opposition and won.
2. She has an over 80% approval rating in Alaska. This is a testimony to her character on the job in executive experience.
3. I've decided to start voting the party line thanks to a post I read by Donwhite. Her values fall in line with mine.
4. Her extreme understanding of energy issues is important to me as a consumer. No one can deny that most of the United States desires to drill.

The more I think about it after this VP pick I truly think I will have to vote for McCain.

Let me say this once more so it will be clear - I AM NOT A DEMOCRAT


I am only putting forth my own observations as a spectator. She is a Bush clone in all of her stances, and yes she did say NEW Q LER...which is a Bushism that has been around for over a decade.

Can't anyone make points in a political discussion without choosing a side? I am stating my own personal opinion, I am not selling it is the gospel truth. Just my own opinion and nothing more.

lets see what else can i say, do your research, lest you lose point for one line posts.

Found another piece of shady info on Palin (kinda makes me rethink my "she has very strong ethics comment):

Apparently, unhappy with the Creamery Board's decision to close down the Matanuska Maid Dairy, and after learning that the state agriculture board could appoint creamery board members, she simply replaced the entire agriculture board with all new members that sided with her. The reversed the creamery board's decision to close down the plant.

Now, she did have good reason to not want to close the plant down, but the way she went about it, IMO, was wrong. This is the kind of shady politics I am not a fan of.

Kind of like firing attorney generals because they don't agree with you and replace them with ones that do.

Yeah- and there have been politicians who fought child pornography and prostitution who later get busted for the same thing.

As for this VP pick?


Governor Palin is currently under investigation by an independent investigator hired by a legislative panel to determine if she abused her power when firing Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan

hasnt been proven yet - but fits that stereotype oh-so-well

I know there are some pretty shallow and stupid people who would actually be swayed by such petty things but those people are much more likely to stay home and watch American Idol while drinking beer than they are to go out and vote. At least I hope they will be.




I resent that. I have, in the past, drank beer while watching American Idol. I am not proud of it, but I admit it did happen.



I am impressed with the choice here. She fills in the gaps of conservatism where McCain was lacking. And to the ones worries about their economic package, they have these folks called "advisors" whos job it is to come up with great ideas to make them look good to the public. Every president has em. You honestly don't think Slick Willie was that inteligent do you?

I think she will be able to stay awake longer and perhaps not need as many naps.

Sorry forgot my newsource

State agriculture board rescues Matanuska Maid for time being



adn.com


PALMER -- A newly composed state agriculture board Tuesday threw out members of a creamery board overseeing the Matanuska Maid dairy, installed itself as the creamery board and canceled a decision to shutter the state-owned company.

The whirlwind turnabout came during a packed, five-hour meeting. It followed Gov. Sarah Palin's wholesale firing over the weekend of the previous agriculture board members.

She is one of the few that could make me stomach McCain.

She looks like John Mccains grand daughter in that pic.


And wouldnt it be more fitting to have Mccain as the King of Hearts...considering his will likely be the first one to stop working

Geeze does this thread need an informed Alaskan!!! You must have made that up out of thin air. Is Obama paying you??? How much is he paying you??? I'm fairly serious here as that rumor does not even exist!!! Are you from the Daily Kos or Soros office?

You are clearly attempting to plant a completely fabricated smear and hoping it will spread through the Internet.

When active athletic women are pregnant they don't show much until the fifth or sixth month. My first wife was very fit and she did not show at all that you could see through clothing until her sixth month. Unfit women show sooner, perhaps they are jealous of her?


Note to Mod's-

Mod - this is not an attack it is a fact. I follow every nuance of Alaskan politics and this rumor DOES NOT EXIST and it would sadden me if ATS were used to spread a fabricated rumor of such a sick nature. Whoever originated this should be outed and embarrassed publicly.

I did not vote for her, but she is a good person who is so honest she shook up the whole state government and sent the crooks running. For that everyone, even Democrats respect her. Sometimes we forget politicians are also human beings with families who don't deserve sick, vile crap like I'm attacking here. People who spread this crap are vile human beings.
