Democrats, if you are not people of faith then this is a good time to become voters of faith. Last night’s speech from Governor Sarah Palin was just about as aggressive as it could be without swinging a big stick, a hockey stick. This gram size Governor from Alaska pulled out all the punches and socked a one two, three four, Five six . . . to Obama and his wife “after all what are the Democrats going to do? Fight back?
You can’t hit a woman, can you? And this may be just the problem the Democrats face as their biggest challenge. How to get in there and get the job done without looking like you are behaving in an ungentlemanly way.
Palin did just what the GOP wanted last night; she took the road that Republicans wanted her to travel, with a monster truck, a gun rack, and a fully loaded speech that created an awful lot of believers. Even God took 7 days to gain the respect of the world and this Messiah of the Republican Party has done it in only 6 days (Friday was her first day of creation).
I am not sure how I feel about last nights speech, mostly it makes me sad, because I know in the months to come that one good swipe (Rep`s) deserves another (Dem`s), and another and another, that is just the name of the game.
This soul searching or witch hunt stuff should have been done a long time ago. All this getting to know you, uncovering and stripping naked of the candidates for public display is not important now, the issues are.
However, Folks only know 6 days of this VP. Mr. McCain this is kind of a trick on your part and it will cause Americans to get less face time with the issues and more about who this VP nominee is. This is the reason this whole campaign started early and maybe the reason we are late in getting on with the point. Maybe we will never get there.
All is NOT so fair in love and war. I promise I am not going to shout out “Can’t we all get along”, because it looks like we can’t. We are about to get as dirty as we can possibly remember, or can’t remember. Every tactic or Attack-tics will be used to win this race.
Heck, if we would have used a fifth of the energy and skills that our candidates have used in the last year of their campaign to fight this war in Iraq. We just might be patting our sons and daughters on the back and thanking them for the service they have done and not pushing them out the door into the line of fire.
Tonight we heard Republicans do everything they can to make the Democrats seem like they have not been part of helping to get this country back on its feet. And frankly this cowboy has had enough of BOTH parties hitting below the belt.
I just wish they did not have these conventions one after another. I wish they went back and forth on the same days. This way at least we would not sit at home and throw things at the TV and be forced to dislike our country even more. This may be the reason our country is divided. Because you politicians are not only dangling a carrot in our faces, but you are prodding us in the backside with a hot poker as well.
I have made a decision that I will only vote for the party that from now until the elections plays fair. No kicking and no fighting, no back stabbing and no lying. These are the qualities that I am looking for in a President and a Vice President.
Hmmm, I guess what I am saying is I will probably have to write in my mother and father for President and Vice President, in that order. Good luck to all you politicians and good luck to all of us Americans, because we have to keep shaking our heads and crossing our fingers as you all talk about how the other side is better than the other. Just so you all know, we know you better than your mothers do, after all you are politicians.
