John McCain's campaign is looking for a scapegoat. It is looking for someone to blame if McCain loses on Tuesday.
And it has decided on Sarah Palin.

In recent days, a McCain “adviser” told Dana Bash of CNN: “She is a diva. She takes no advice from anyone.”

Imagine not taking advice from the geniuses at the McCain campaign. What could Palin be thinking?

Also, a “top McCain adviser” told Mike Allen of Politico that Palin is “a whack job.”

Maybe she is. But who chose to put this “whack job” on the ticket? Wasn’t it John McCain? And wasn’t it his first presidential-level decision?

And if you are a 72-year-old presidential candidate, wouldn’t you expect that your running mate’s fitness for high office would come under a little extra scrutiny? And, therefore, wouldn’t you make your selection with care? (To say nothing about caring about the future of the nation?)

McCain didn’t seem to care that much. McCain admitted recently on national TV that he “didn’t know her well at all” before he chose Palin.


So why would McCains advisers jump ship a week before the election?
Do they know something the rest of the country doesnt?
Yes Obama will probably win but why throw Palin under the tracks before we have even officially cast our votes.
Where is the loyalty? at least wait until November 5th to hang all the skeletons out for all to see.

and the answer is: it's already decided beforehand. what other answer could there be? people accuse them of being extremely conniving and ingenous but then call them stupid and shortsighted when it doesn't make any sense. well look at from this perspective:

if it really (does it?) look like they are tossing palin,
then it's likely it was never serious to begin with.
that obama was already the chosen candidate for both parties.

the other possible answer is, they will make it look like obama can't
possibly lose. then when he loses, the outcry will foster riots like in
kenya.

seriously. the TV is brainwashing people to divide along racial and religious
lines. the gender thing is still a bit rough, but as long as they can count on people to kill each other's kids and womenfolk, problem solved.

Well yes that would be the common sense answer.
I am just so surprised that McCain/Palin supporters are not mad as hell that their own camp is jumping the ship.
Where is all that anger?
Everyone was in an uproar when the so called "liberal media" went after Palin but now even her own party, her own campaign is dogging her. Where is the outrage?

well if they are really doing what you say, then i'm not too happy. not because i'm republican or democrat, but because i like sarah. i think she's smarter than they give her credit for but not sleezy enough to get anywhere with it. such is life in the american political arena. that is, if it isn't already decided beforehand.

when i see people posting to these boards that we need to be a socialist nation, i realize the mccarthy era was alot more pivotal to our political arena. i remember being raised in a fairly democratic environment as a child. school (elementary, junior, senior high) was pretty straight forward. then by the time i was in my 30's, school (college) was totally different. the professors were almost all socialists. it was a shock to my system to realize the country's school system was not on the same page with the government. that appears to be changing. which scares me

As I stated in an earlier thread, I believe that many of these people are those who came from the Romney camp. They're angry that he was not selected as McCain's VP, so now that it looks like they can safely do so, they're taking their revenge.

Good points. Or they know, by polls, that they lost. National and state polls show leads by Obama. And with the economy and war and Ted Stevens and energy and every thing else hitting at once it can be seen as no hope. All this under the GOP, so the GOP can't win. Maybe in four years, if things get worse.

McCains people have to be careful about blaming Govenor Palin.

McCain will not win and after the election all he'll be is an old senator who is past retirement age.

Palin is a young govenor of the largest state in the United States.

She has a future. McCain doesn't.

FF in other threads on Palin you seemed more passionate about your support and more angry at the "liberal media's" lies and propaganda.
Where is that anger and passion when your own party gets in on the assault?

Exactly.

Stop making up your own stories to try to swing votes. The only way McCain will lose is if there is foul play at the polls. McCain has this in the bag.

I really believe that the republicans didn't want to win. McCain was an incredible candidate, prior to his changing his stance on everything. He's claiming maverick status but his current stance is contrary to everything he stood for when he was this so called maverick.

I've asked plenty of people for one good reason why Palin was selected. This wasn't simply McCain's choice. She was added to a list, vetted, and approved, presumably by McCain and the republican party. So far the only answer I got that made any sense was from someone who felt it was a last ditched effort to try and win over some disgruntled clinton voters. I've discussed this one republican who hosted a dinner for one of the republicans who ran against McCain. This woman was at the convention. Her response was that "she's an amazing woman. she's more qualified that Obama." Then she went into Obama's ties to militants (not Ayres) and Obama's affiliation with Wright. When I mentioned the video of Palin being exorcised by some voodoo priest she got quiet. Apparently she never heard about it. She tried bringing up some of the b.s. that we've seen on the boards here. The blog posts, the uncredited emails and letters sent by unknown people. I told her they were all garbage being sent out by the two parties to plant seeds in the minds of the voters.

There's no reason why Palin was selected, other than to intentionally lose the election. Unless, as Mr.Old.School. suggested a while back, the original intent was to get her to bow out for some kind of sympathy vote and it backfired when she became more popular than McCain. That's right, she gets more people at her rallies than he does.

I am of the belief that the republicans either know something is in the works and they don't want to be in the presidency when it happens or they know that the economy is going to take another turn for the worse before it recovers and, again, they don't want that on their watch.

Not sure what you mean ...

- 'my own party?' I'm not voting for McCain/Palin. (nor Obama/Biden).

- Where is my anger and passion? Did you read my post?

Next week at this time McCain will be nothing more than an old senator who is past retirement. However, Palin will be a young govenor of the largest state in the USA. SHE will be around in the future. McCain won't. To blame her for McCain's screwed up run for POTUS is pathetic - and probably sexist. If it wasn't for her, he wouldn't be getting 25% of the votes that he is. (my guess)

I'm not angry at them.

I am looking at them and thinking 'what freak'n idiots'

There, is that more to your liking?

I used the word 'pathetic' and threw in 'sexist' as well.

- The republicans didn't want it. Perhaps they know something is coming, as you said.

- McCain BLEW the election. He threw it away with MANY obvious errors.

- The Bildebergers want Obama. You just can't fight that.

IMHO

How does he have it in the bag? He's down in every poll, some times double digits. And the McCain Campaign is going after Palin almost as much as Obama. From Diva and Whack Job to trying to cut her off because she keeps doing her own thing. They picked her to try and get Clinton votes and it backfired.

yes thats more like it


1/2 of my family is hard core conservative, republican and are SO SO angry at the democrats, the "liberal media" and anyone else who doesnt sing the praises of the GOP.
But they are not angry when their own camp/party/base whatever calls the election a week early and throws Palin under the bus, I just dont get that.

I thought you were a Republican and I was just curious as to why the party isnt ticked off at their own. I apologize for jumping to conclusions.

But I disagree with you on Palins future, I think her 15 minutes are just about up if the election goes to Obama. Unless she hires an amazing PR rep and publicist she will go back to Alaska and that will be it.

Like I have said many times... Give me 3 facts of what Obama has done for this country to justify his run for president ...

p.s. - Good luck with at least 1

I completely and totally agree.
There is no way that this many mistakes were made and then calling the election and jumping ship almost a week before we go to vote is a side note.
Is something going to happen or did McCain realize he was just too old and tired to try and fix this mess we are in?
Guess we will find out in January.

they knew when they picked her that she was even more of a maverick than mccain. so this has nothing to do with her being a whack job or a diva. it's about something else.

what something,
is the question.

Well it could be that they have another 9/11 planned to get McCain's war with Iran going. That's if you believe that 9/11 was an inside job. But they don't want two 9/11's to happen under them, so they will want Obama in office to pull another 9/11 and claim it happened because Obama is a terrorist lover or weak on defense.

I might be absolutely completely wrong but I just think that too many Americans would get highly suspicious about another 9/11 type event esp. with Bidens and Powells remarks.
I have to also believe that the rest of the world would react as well.
This nation, for the most part, was completely broadsided on the morning of September 11th but with all the hints dropped now it would raise at the very least a suspicion, right?

As opposed to Bush getting memos telling him Osama's plan? As opposed to CIA meeting Osama in July at a Dubai hospital? As opposed to Bush flying all the Bin Laden's out of the country when not even his father could fly? When FIRE FIGHTERS! Who were at the WTC reported hearing bombs going off? Americans ate it up then and they'll eat it up again.
