Yes to say nothing about the folks who have fallen through the cracks and been shoved back to the back of line, and not just in South Chicago, but in

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.
I see your problem, and it is blatantly obvious. You support the opposition, and it matters little of what Sarah Palin speaks, for you will always
find an issue with her no matter what.
I also find it very narrow minded to suggest and propagate the idea that only people living in urban environments struggle. Small town Alaskan living
is FAR more of a struggle than any of us have to put up with in the Lower 48. Sarah Palin grew up with a far tougher life than Obama could ever even
begin to portray for himself. You are speaking about a guy who acts like he struggled simply because he had a single mom, yet he somehow
"miraculously" made it through Private Academy after Academy. He also managed to pick up and move multiple times as a child, halfway around the
world at that, and simultaneously live in two separate locations. He also managed an Ivy League education, then Harvard Law School. Now he somehow has
the ability to afford a Multi-Million Dollar Mansion, a Boeing 757, and lavish Parties. He even gave the 757 an entirely new paint job, along with a
complete overhaul. Brand new, his plane costs well over $65 Million. He supposedly acquired it for $52 Million, then decided he would "splurge" for
the overhaul which cost at a bare minimum $500,000. Yes, Obama has struggled throughout his entire life, and Alaska has Palm Trees.
As for the "community organizer" comment, Sarah Palin was hammering away at Obama's only job description. Seriously, do you not think Obama brought
it upon himself for his jab at Palin having "only" been Mayor of a Small Town? Not only did he yet again insult Small Town America, he also
purposely overlooked the fact that she is currently the Governor of a State. Either way you look at it, that was extremely disrespectful of Obama, and
if you wish for Palin to Apologize, then demand for Obama to apologize at his trying to label her some backwoods idiot.
BTW, I happen to live in a VERY liberal, urban area. This morning I was listening to one of the local Radio Talk Shows, which happens to have three
guys as the commentators. One of these gentlemen used to be a Congressman in Iowa, and all three of them are very insightful, and they pack quite a
bit of logic and common sense. The first caller, and afterwards about a half-a-dozen more, were Black Americans, and strong Obama supporters. However,
EVERY single one of them said "Wow", and even though they were most likely to still cast their votes for the Obama/Biden ticket, they all stated not
only were they completely and enormously impressed with Sarah Palin, but they also believe her to be an extremely talented individual. One of these
same callers stated that Sarah Palin made Hillary Clinton appear as though she were nothing but an amateur, and that Palin was a far better, less
harsh sounding woman who truly has it together. Another caller within this grouping even exclaimed "MAN, I can't wait for the debates, after hearing
Sarah Palin, this is going to be an ALL out war". This hardcore Obama supporter, who had called-in in the past touting his support for his candidate,
was actually positively excited by Sarah Palin.
So I have no idea, maybe it is just me, but with defiant Obama/Biden supporters even complimenting and extolling Sarah Palin, you must be somewhat of
a closed-minded extremist to label her speech as "God Awful".
