John McCain to Sarah Palin: I Choose You!

John McCain to Sarah Palin: I Choose You!

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain chose Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to be his running mate at a campaign rally on Friday in Dayton, Ohio.

Governor Palin is a tough executive who has demonstrated during her time in office that she is ready to be president,” the McCain campaign said Friday. “Governor Palin has the record of reform and bipartisanship that others can only speak of. Her experience in shaking up the status quo is exactly what is needed in Washington today.”

This move will sure pick up a few of the Hillary Clinton voters!

Little known facts: Palin came in second place at the Miss Alaska pageant in 1984. The 44-year-old Idaho-native also is the mother of five children.

Question: Did you read that interview transcript, or listen to Sarah directly? The jist and tone of the comments, for those of you who did not listen to Sarah’s own words directly, was NOT that she literally did not know the functions of a VP, but rather that she felt productive in her current role as reforming governor in Alaska, and was in no hurry to abandon all that for the VP, which often carries many ceremonial duties in addition to it’s more immediately practical funcions. By the way, Sarah has said she will continue to fullfill her duties as governor during the race. Her comments, taken in context, have her demurring talk of a VP offer, just like all VP contenders historically do, including, most recently, Joe Biden.

For those of you who are wondering where Jess got his post from (that he felt inclined to post 3 times), it’s from Moveon.org, the liberal media lobbying site. Jess neglected to add the part at the bottom or attribute it’s authors, so I will do so here:

“Please pass this information along to your friends and family.
Thanks for all you do.
–Ilyse, Noah, Justin, Karin and the rest of the team”

When you read something, question your assumptions, and question their sources.

Mccain had the intelligence and respect to do at least one thing Obama failed to do, at least consider a woman for Vice President. Obama spent his time mocking clinton’s time as First Lady and her involvement in everything, he will never have my respect because he never gave us his, even supporting the silencing of millions of votes here in Florida. Mccain may not share all of my stances but I believe he says what he means, I don’t believe a single thing out of Obama’s mouth, I think my choice is pretty simple from there.

Wow, she’s the most popular governer of the least populated state in America. That’s about what, 500,000 people she had to win over? Big accomplishment. If that’s the Republican definition of experience, then why wasn’t my city mayor considered in the running for John McCain’s second in command? Is it because he doesn’t have boobs?

America should know by now that experience, no matter how it is defined, means little if you don’t have the intelligence to use it to this country’s advantage. Hence George W, who has experience up the ying yang, but a brain the size of a penny.

Obama-Biden ’08!!!!!

Well we might as well have Britney Spears in the White House of course if you can still call it that I guess she will probably make it a trailer park. Come on, is this woman someone you want to be president of the USA when the old **** keelsover dead at 73? She cant even stop her 17 year old daughter from having sex and getting pregnant, even though she has said she is against sex education in school and says it should be taught at home and abstinence is the way to go, I’m sure she could run the country. She has never been out of Alaska for heavens sake have you all gone crazy?? Voting for her because she is a women? Does that mean if she had a ***** she would be more or less stupid? Oh no I forgot thats McCain job when he can remember to do it. I like what she said when asked if she was ready for the job of VP,” If someone tells me what to do.”

If this picks up Clinton voters they are stupid morons. Palin and Clinto have NOTHING in common but a ******.

This Clinton supporter will NOT vote for Mccain and Palin because I care more about our country than if a female is a Prez or VP. WAKE UP WOMEN! If you support Clinton, you should NEVER be supporting McCain he is AGAINST everything Hillary stands for. To support Clinton then go McCain is one of the most ignorant things one could do.

When our country was born we based our values, morals and ethics on solid Christian beliefs. We tried, as a nation, to continue to run our country with these guidelines to make our country free and trustworthy. Throughout the years, we have grown further and further away from the deep moral convictions we once had. We have even chosen to eliminate the helpless life of an unborn child because it could cause an inconvenience to us or someone else. We no longer have to account for our actions and strive to be so politically correct that the morals in this country has rapidly declined. So it is with our leadership. Nancy, speaker of the house, thinks their vacation is more important than saving us from the oil crisis. The Democrats continue to hinder us from becoming self sufficient but continues to complain, blaming everything on the previous President. The United States is more deeply in debt now than ever and Congress continues to pass legislation that hides useless spending. We have lost our respect in the world and our people are left wondering if it will ever get any better.
Now, we do have hope on the horizon. Our President nomination, John McCain is an honorable man that has a lifetime of years vested in Washington. He has seen it all by now and certainly has an idea of what to do to bring us that hope and change. Sure some say he is old well, did anyone see his mother? She is 96 years old and looks pretty good. Does that tell you anything?
He has shown incredible judgement when he chose Sara Palin for his VP. She is intelligent, witty, strong, willing to help the cause and she is ready to Take on Washington. Finally, perhaps we have a voice in Washington. If you read her bios that are out there, she is a people’s leader. That is what we need. Clean out the ones who continue to think about themselves, their pocketbooks and their ajendas. She is an absolute breath of fresh air and a fighter.
I was on the fense with the McCain ticket but after hearing Sara Palin’s past record and having stood up after being criticised for so long, she made my decision easier.
I will be on board for this ticket. It is not about the man, or the party, it is about those good morals, strong ethical policies and the love of God and Country. It is about putting the people first and having someone listen to our cries for help. Yes, oh yes, I will be on board for this ticket.

I have to say he couldnt have picked a better running mate.I have a wife a lot like sara,she has worked along side of me and I along side of her for the last thirty years.I thank god for her .give em hell sara youll be in my prayers

OBAMANA sUCKS. @ 09/05/2008 at 5:54 pm

This is a good Choice for MacCain. Palin got more votes for Governer in Alaska then Biden got for running for president. Obama chose joe biden and he is the most left wing somone can get.. ( he will Take away ALL the Firearms..)

Thank God for Sarah!!! I’m a middle to lower class female who can’t wait to vote for McCain and Sarah..All the women I talk to love her!! You forget their are lots of women who are pro-life. I wouldn’t vote for Hillary because of her veiws but now I get to vote for a women who believes the same way I do. GO SARAH!!!

glen yeaman @ 09/06/2008 at 4:06 pm

A person can sure tell the internet is swelled with the young(and Dumb).Gov. palin is just what this country needs.The left is so afraid of her,they are putting her down for the same things they have supported for the last forty years.To watch them fall all over themselves over the last week has been priceless.

Mari fuentes @ 09/07/2008 at 1:44 am

PLEASE VOTE OMABA/BIDEN!!!

PALIN WAS PICKED TO GET THE MALE VOTE. (SHE IS HOT)
BUT NOT VERY SMART. HILLARY IS TWICE THE WOMAN SARA IS.
AND THE FACT THAT PALIN WAS CHOSEN TO GIVE THE LADIES A “GUILT” TRIP IF WE DON’T VOTE FOR HER IS VERY WRONG!!!

I JUST DON’T TRUST MC CAIN AND HIS VP LADY-
THAT IS JUST MORE OF THE SAME!!!!!!!
POR FAVOR DE VOTAR POR OBAMA Y BIDEN
NECESITAMOS UN CAMBIO. MAS DINERO Y BETTER HEALTH INS.

ES IMPORTANTE NO DEJARNOS LLEVAR POR EL HECHO DE QUE PALIN ES MUJER. PREFIERO MIL VECES MAS A HILLARY, LAS DECICIONES QUE TOMO SU ESPOSO FUERON LAS QUE LLEVARON A NUESTRO PAIS AL EXITO. Y OBAMA PUEDE HACER LO MISMO!!!!!

I think she is terrific!
Obama scares the heck out of me….. He is a DISASTER!

Former democrat for the McCain Palin ticket

If Mccain And Sarah Palin will win , the United States’s future will go to a good direction. We will have a good future, also. Yes, John Mccain doesn’t give good speech in front of million of people, but at least he meant what he says. He is a true hero, and he also belive in patriotism, not like Obama. People should look at John Mccain and Sarah Palin closely.

This country will ave a goood future if John Mccain and Sarah palin will win. They are more experiece, have more respect in this country and respect in patriotism than Borack Obama and his running mate. People should think about it carefully. Also, Sarah palin is very talented, and she has done so many useful and important things, so we should respect and support her as a vice president of the United States.

remember everyone and especially to all Latino who live in this country that John Mccain has plan about the amnesty. Borack Obama doesn’t mention anything about it. If Borack Obama would win, we don’t know what’s going to happen in this country and to our economy and also to us. He can hardly use the word change becuase he is so busy bad mouthing the bush administration instead of focusing on the big issue that we are facing right now. Everyone should think about it more clearly.

McCain is a leftover war relic that needs to go sit down and take Palin with him. Alaska is not even part of the continental United states and most people dont even think of it as a state. McCain antics as a naval avaitor should be investivated before he got shot down in Vietnam. he was know as a hothead nothing close to a maverick”"”.

Wow. This is pathetic. Sarah Palin is clearly unqualified and unethical. If the Governor of our state expensed the things Palin has expensed I would be so angry.

Adrian gruber @ 10/30/2008 at 10:38 am

Persuade everybode to vote for McCain – Palin
Donot change government in time of financial crisis
The Republican goverrnment acted promtly in the current crisis
Obama means uncertainty and danger
Obamas friends and family history is Unamerican
Obana wants to give Irak to the terrorist at a time of overall progress
This will encourage the enemies of the USA to get bolder
Nobody will respect the USA
Americans of European origin might leave the U.S.
African countries are not ready for democracy
Appeal to America to vote Republican
All the best.
