It wasn't just a chance thing, I heard her say it at least twice in the speech. I tell you my jaw dropped, and my stomach got real sour. That was
horribly insensitive, mean, and completely uncalled for. Definitely not Presidential or VP or whatever...you can't say things like that and be in
charge of our Diverse nation. Such an insult, even if not intended, it was disgusting and very distasteful. To me it was arrogant and rubbes salt in
the bleeding wound. Building communities is one of the most needed endeavor's in this nation, and she is so in over her head and out to lunch. She
has no idea what the hell she is doing and that speech totally proves it. Any other politician worth their salt would have seen that stupid Rovian
comment inserted in the script ahead of time and said "uh uh, no way" but not her, she obviously felt it was just fine because she has no clue about
the real world or any of these communities in distress and need.
I'm still sick with the memories of that god awful speech.
Then you completely missed the point. But I am not surprised. Barack Obama, throughout his career has always been style over substance. He was a
community organizer...who does not seem to remember much of what he was involved with. He was a state senator, when his favorite vote on any issue
that might force him to take a position...was "present". Not yes, not no, but "Present". I would have rather seen John Dingell or John Conyers
run over ole Barry.
When you compare "executive" qualities and experience, Sarah Palin outshines Barack Obama by far.
Race has nothing to do with it....get over the chip on your shoulder. If you TRULY want to help the people who "fall through" the cracks, then you
will vote for someone who thinks that giving a hand up, rather than a handout, is a better way to help, and in this election, that would be John
McCain and Sarah Palin. Sending more and more money to Washington DC, will only cause more people to fall through the cracks. Time and again, when
you let the people keep their money (well at least for those of conservative beliefs), they give it to charities and organizations in their
hometowns...to better take care of the people that need it. If I give 100 dollars to a food bank here, I know that 95 dollars of it will get to a
person who needs help. If I give 100 dollars to the federal government, that same person, will be lucky to see 25 dollars of it, thats an unobjective
Next time, when you see politicians release their tax returns, pay attention. Ninety five percent of the time, you will find its Republicans who give
the most to charities. Liberals dont give to charity...they expect the bloated, inefficient federal government to take care of it.
Then come back and tell me, who really cares about the poor...those who would rather send off money to be sucked away into bureaucracy..or those who
would rather ensure that the people who live in their state/town get taken care of and give locally.
