The whole Sarah Palin phenomenon is nothing more than Senator Obama's chickens coming home to roost. After he defeated Senator Clinton, he had a golden opportunity to bind the Democratic Party's wounds---either by choosing Senator Clinton as his running mate or by choosing from literally several dozen top-tier, capable, qualified, nationally-known Democratic women. But instead, the "candidate of change" chose yet another man in a navy blue suit---a Beltway insider who has worked in Washington since the Nixon Administration. Is it any wonder that so many independent women and right-of-center Democratic women are gravitating to Governor Palin in large numbers?
Cut and paste this into more threads ok? Will we see another cut and paste post from you the next time the Limbaugh letter comes out?

You tell me how ANY candidate will fix it? Neither one of them can relate.

Obama certainly didn't pay fair market value for his house and property, and to be fair John McCain owns none of those properties Cindi does and they are not all homes.

Either way you will have a tough time getting me to believe that either one relates to either one of us.

And they have the Democratic / Liberal world teetering on the edge of insanity and morally questionable political tactics.

hes old, prone to bouts of cancer and poor health and she is young, ruthless and ambitious. he is disliked by his party who wishes he never got the nomination. She is adored by the party that wishes there was some way to get him out of the way to let her take the presidency in January. Hmmm just some way...

The overwhelming majority of conservative republicans tend to disagree with you about McCain's standing in the party.

While that may have been more true at the onset of the election, the theory simply doesn't pan out today.

Well he has shown his loyalty to party during the election by mending fence with the right wing of the party and with the christian right. Accepting Sarah on the ticket was a good step. All that chatter about his maverick side and bucking party that he has used in his speech at the convention is a concern that he will return to his old ways. But I know that much of that might be just electio rhetoric to draw in the independents and not something that will pan out when the administration gets underway, especially with Palin there to keep his nose clean with the party.

I also think that he nor the republicans are going to have any problems crossing party lines if elected. I do agree that politicians will do most anything to seal the deal, I just prefer a deal closer to right center than far left.

I don't see any party line crossing going on in the Palin/McCain years. I think the extent to reaching out to democrats will be reaching out to them to let thema agree with the administration. Clearly the language of "going to washington to kick some butt and clean it up" is not conciliatory. And with Palin leading the charge, the goal will be to destroy the left or to minimize it to a nonevent. I saw that goal moving foward in the the glory days of GWs time. And among other things, it was McCain who brought it down. But McCain is much better behaved these days and I think he will do as he is told so he can get his picture on the wall of the white house.

Sequential photos will clearly show that every President ages considerably with each passing year in office due to the strains of the office. No President has been exempt.(If) John McCain should win the Presidency he'll be the oldest to have ever been elected to the office at the age of 72.
Will his health hold up for 4 years ? Who's to know but if so, he'll certainly want a 2nd term just like any other red blooded President. Picture what he'll look like at the end of a 2nd term. Will he be sound of mind ? Will his Vice President have gathered enough respect to receive cooperation from the House and Senate in the event of his passing ?
All serious questions to consider.

I don't think Palin is looking for cooperation or respect from washington. Her statements that she will be a bull dog to go to washington and kick butt and clean up the cess pool tell me she feels she can steamroll into town and call the shots. And with her basically staging a coup on the entire election process, who knows but maybe she can.

A congress with a 9% approval rating may just need a little cleaning up.

If the America people are as wise or intelligent as the British or French people, they should know that Obama should not be the one working so hard to win their votes.
Just imagine, as an American, waking up after election day to know that McCain-Palin are your new leaders for the next 4-8 years:
1. How can you ever forgive yourself for such a fatal mistake?
2. What will happen to your beloved Constitution?
3. Bush had a father who was a President, yet look at where America is after 8 years. Did the Republicans deliver what they promised? Will they deliver for the next 4-8 years or clean up their own mess?
4. What would you live to tell your children about this wonderful opportunity for change? Was it "racially or simply party motivated? And is it really worth the Risk you took?

McCain, a man who either didn't know or didn't remember that Czechoslovakia hasn't been a country in 15 years.

McCain, a man who said last year he doesn't know anything about economic, now you want to risk your country future by electing the same person to fix your economic problem?

McCain, a man who doesn't know how many house he own while you are losing your home and jobs.

Palin wants teenage protected from any sex education and look what happened to her own daughter, do you want that for your children and grandchildren?

If the past eight years have been good to you and your family, then vote for
McCain

McCain is worried that all the hidden truths will come out about Sarah Palin such as these facts:

1)Sarah Palin is Pro-life (or Anti-choice) and wants to outlaw abortion even in the cases of rape and incest!

2)Sarah Palin opposes stem cell research which holds great promise in curing dozens of serious and fatal diseases such as Alzheimers, Cancer and Parkinson’s Disease!

3)Sarah Palin supports the barbaric and inhumane practice of aerial hunting of wolves and bears and has offered a bounty of $150 for each front leg of the wolf which was killed!

4)Sarah Palin is trying to take both the Polar Bear and the Beluga Whale off the Endangered Species List (so that they can both be hunted) since she thinks that they’re getting in the way of more arctic oil drilling! Even the Bush Administration wants to keep both the Polar Bear and the Beluga Whale on the Endangered Species List unlike Sarah Palin.

5) Governor Sarah Palin supports oil and gas drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

6)Unlike her rival Senator Joe Biden, who is a six-term Senator known for his foreign affairs expertise, Governor Sarah Biden has no foreign affairs experience

7) The fact that if John McCain wins this election there’s a good chance (given his age (72) and 4 bouts of melanoma) that Sarah Palin could become the U.S. President and the leader of one of the most powerful countries in the world. When this happens, what will President Palin do with all her small town mayoral and wildlife and environmental destruction experience? Press the button perhaps??

It will be interesting to see if Senator Obama's snub of Democratic women (in his failure to choose a female VP candidate despite the presence of dozens of top-tier, capable, qualified, nationally-known Democratic women)---which has resulted in a wave of women voters (mostly independents and center-right Dems) shifting their support to McCain-Palin, can be counterbalanced by the money and the votes of gay, lesbian, bis~xual and transgender liberals. LGBT voters are working hard to make up the difference, even likening their devotion to Obama to "drinking holy water": http://www.chicagofreepress.com/node/2426

Wow, you would be hard pressed to find a conservative even trying to gather that vote.

He can have 'em. Good luck with it.
