Palin Bombs at RNC

Did America witness the snarkiest, most sarcastic and unqualified veep candidate in history?  What was worse, her lies about Obama raising taxes, her faux claim to being a reformer or her nasally amateurish delivery?  Bringing her kids out as a prop was beyond nauseating.  Does anyone in America think this bum is qualified to be in the White House?  As Daily Kos pointed out, she lied about turning down the Bridge to Nowhere.  She was proud of getting the federal pork dollars as this photo above shows.

  1. a hell of a lot nicer bum than bidens

  2. wasn’t Obama’s kids on stage nauseating too?

  3. Chaos,
    Do you really think she was nice? How so?
    Joe

  4. she is real change. Biden is a long time washington hack with the 3rd most liberal voting record in the senate. Its ridiculous that Obama runs on hope and change and nominates old and the same to run with him.

  5. What represents change: her close friendship with crooked Senator Ted Stevens? Her support for the Bridge to Nowhere? Putting her small town $20M in debt? Abusing her power in the Troopergate scandal? Sounds like Republican business as usual to me.

  6. Chaos,
    She is real change? She reminds me of Bush!
    She put her small town $20 million in debt (as Joe pointed out). Bush was a failed oil man in Texas and traded Sammy Sosa.
    Palin is governor of the largest state in the country. Bush was the governor of the second largest. (That experience sure helped.)
    Palin is a born-again Christian who will say and do anything to get elected and Bush … well you get the idea.

  7. Chaos, once again, good point. The kids on stage are a little much. What bothered me about Palin was the spent 10 minutes introducing them BEFORE her speech and seemed to use them as a prop, especially her pregnant 17-year-old and the kid who was forced (via shotgun) to marry her.

    Joe

  8. I admit I am by no means an expert on Alaskan politics but I also feel there is alot more to the story than you are saying here. She does represent change a lot more than Obama does, if he had picked Hillary instead of Biden he would be a real threat to the republicans . But he chose to go after old white votes with Biden and it will back fire on him big time. You can spout all the things you feel Palin has done wrong and there are just as many if not more from the Obama Biden ticket . From being friends with known terrorists to stealing a British politicians life story and trying to claim its your own. That fact is Obama chose a looser as a running mate, Biden has run for president many times and lost every time. The experience he brings to Obama’s ticket is loosing. Palin on the other hand took on the govoner and republican machine hat had been running Alaska and beat it down. Just as she will beat down the washington elite that are attempting to smear her now. I think and hope what I have just said will be vindicated when she has her first debate, but time will tell.

  9. The 17 yr old daughter should not even be a story. It is ridiculous to say she was forced to marry the father , you have no proof to back up your claims . To my knowledge the daughter has not made any public statement yet. but on the other hand if this is a story that can not be ignored then by all means lets talk about Bidens son who was named in a fraud case. That should be just as important of a story.

  10. Chaos:
    The 17-year-old is a minor story, agreed, only because Palin says “abstinence works” and she voted to cut funding for sex education. It highlights her hypocrisy. And the boyfriend said he didn’t want to get married on his myspace page then they pulled the page.

    As for Biden, he’s MUCH more qualified than Palin. Didn’t we just have someone in the White House who knew nothing of foreign affairs for 8 years? How’s that going?

    As for Hillary, she’s getting a free ride now that she’s out. The Republicans despise her with a passion, they would have registered 200,000 more voters.

    Joe

  11. Biden has 30 years of voting with his party and being a blow hard in washington that is hardly a qualification to be VP. He has never held an executive office or an 80% approval rating

  12. So Biden has never held executive office and is not qualified? Funny you should say that. Rudy Giulani said the same thing … about John McCain.

    Giuliani said of Obama:

    …he’s never run a city, never run a state, never run a business. He’s never had to lead people in crisis.

    Another blogger found this, a quote from Rudy Giuliani last year, attacking John McCain’s readiness to lead. Giuliani said McCain:

    …has never run a city, never run a state, never run a government. He has never been responsible as a mayor for the safety and security of millions of people…

    BTW, Palin’s approval rating hasn’t been 80% in a while. Troopergate and her stonewalling of the investigation will see to that. She’s been caught lying and now wants it to go away.

  13. Oh Palin is stonewalling? Sounds like Obama is stone walling with his relationship to Bill Ayers and the Woods Fund of Chicago. Lets see I’m a bit more concerned about a politician that began his career in the home known terrorist , than a governor that allegedly had a trooper fired for misconduct

  14. So she’s being honest about the investigation by not answering questions, and telling her staff not to help the investigation started by the Republican legislature? Sounds like stonewalling to me. And you must be desperate to bring up Bill Ayers, someone he hardly knows. There are tapes of Palin staffers browbeating the State Police office and she FIRED Monegan after he wouldn’t fire her brother in law. Abuse of power. Is this how she will lead? Or will she just browbeat the librarian to ban books? Or will she go to a church that denigrates Jews? Or will put America further into debt like she did her little town. It takes special skills to go $20 million in debt for a town of less than 7000 in just two years. That’s Change we can believe in?

  15. Glad you brought up abuse of power. As Obama has tried and is trying to get the justice dept. to go after a private citizen that helped fund the ayers tv ad about him, shows how much Obama likes freedom of speech

  16. The Trooper gate story has a different side that you do not mention . Monegan serves at the governors pleasure as the public safety commissioner and there is nothing wrong with the governor firing him, also the trooper wooten has been a trooper since 2001 and has been married and divorced 4 times including a marriage to palins sister Molly McCan with whom he had 2 children that marrige ended in 2006. In 2006, state investigators found Wooten guilty of a significant pattern of judgment failures, including using a Taser on his 10-year-old stepson and drinking beer while operating a state trooper vehicle. Wooten was suspended for 10 days he also threatened palins father saying that the father would eat a *&#@# bullet if he helped the daughter attain a lawyer

  17. Chaos:

    You really want another 4 years like the last 8 years? Really? Please tell me where the Republicans succeeded:

    – Deficit
    – Economy
    – Mortgage mess
    – catching Bin Laden
    – Oil prices
    – Healthcare
    – Iraq war

    Can you honestly say Bush has succeeded in any category? And McCain supported him 95% of the time.

    Joe

  18. I agree the last 8 years have been hard , and I don’t like McCain I think he is wrong on many things. I think he will harm the country less than an Obama administration and I like Palin those are the only reasons I support him .

  19. Chaos:

    Check out our latest post with the McCain Halloween costume and the post from Christian liberal.

    Love it, nice job. Keep up the good work.
    As a Connecticut resident, I am embarrassed at Trader Joe’s behavoir, especially during the Republican convention. I only wish McCain had chosen him as his VP, the two of them deserve one another.

    Cute!

    McCain and Palin are good, decent people.
    So are Obama and Biden.
    There is, though one glaring difference.
    McCain/Palin want to continue the Iraq war.
    Obama/Biden want to end it.

    I want to discuss something Republicans REALLY love: Money.

    Estimates are that just under 100,000 people have been killed in Iraq.
    (http://www.iraqbodycount.org/)

    Cost estimate: $3 TRILLION final, $1 TRILLION spend so far
    (http://www.csmonitor.com/2008/0310/p16s01-wmgn.html)

    COST TO US: between $10 and $30 million per terrorist!

    Ya know, I just don’t think we’re getting our money’s worth, Aye?!!
    Do you? I say we END THIS WAR!
