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.

    She is a clear pawn being used by McCain to capture those undecided HRC supporters and undecided independents. People posting her claiming to be HRC supporters and now would vote for M/P are either trolls or ignorant people who were never ever die hard HRC supporters in the first place. But just wolf in sheep clothing. SP does not match with what HRC worked all her life for. There are different in values and issues. It seems you would only be an idiot to vote for M/P because there would be a woman in Washington. That shows hypocrisy flat out by you people that think that way of wanting to vote M/P.

    He is using her a pawn also to get something and his motives now seem fishy. It leads the educated to think many things:

    1. Is he going to use her for women votes and then if he somehow wins and gets in the WH, then create a “conspiracy” to get her step down and then bring in someone else?

    2. What really is his message? He has not utlined sh*t about his policies and even if he does, it would resemble that of Bush because he is a warmonger and warmongers do not change their tactics at all.

    Overall, for the voter with intelligence, we can see that this woman has no foreign policy or national security experience. Is she capable of sitting at the negotiation table with Putin, Ahmadinejad or another world leader? Hell NO. Many things come into play also. John McCain is a man who has a sickness that can return someday for worst. God forbid that he is the President and has to be out of the picture, do you know what that means? She is your President. Yes she would be and that would be a disgrace to the country that a woman with no Washington experience at all, is the President.

    For a mother to have a 4 month old Down Syndrome child, she needs to be on hand to answer the call at 3 in the morning. Suppose there is a crisis in the world and she as VP gets the call at 3 am, do you think she can say no thanks i cannot come? She has to be there.

    To all the disgruntled HRC people, learn facts before shouting. HRC said she did not want the #2 spot period. So that means that Obama did not snub her.

    Biden is going to rip this Palin woman to shreds in the VP debate full on. He knows the game and how it is played. At least we know Obama has someone with the capacity to answer something. Plus look back at Bush. Do you think bush new everything to be President? Hell No. Cheney was his tutor on what to do to be a good President everyday. But the same ignorant voters reinstated him for a second term. Obama outlined his change terms and with it said that it would not be easy. He was never pompous to say off the bat that they would work from day one. He give you the idea to show he has a clear outline rather than that old rhetoric bald head war monger who talks of war, drill over and over again.

  • Brianne

    poster 250 you are an idiot. McCain says he wants to run for one term. So 2012 is it for him he says. Plus it has to be as he would be 76. As some people say, if he McLame gets into the WH, they are leaving the country. That is something that I might do if he does cause he wants war to remain and create disunity within the American people while focusing more on the external politics than internal. From Obama’s speech he said something that was of worth. That for America to get back its credibility as a world leader nation, it has to show the world that they are a world nation through having stable, unified internal nation and can gain respect as being see as a talker and walker. Bush failed this nation by focusing more external and forgetting to manage internally. With McCain that is what he wants to do again. Concentrate outside more than inside. So if you feel that he is your savior, pull the lever for him. But when the first two years are the same, don’t cry out because you’ll be a hypocritical idiot.

    Just had to post this “of many to come of this I am certain.”

    Fairbanks Daily News-Miner:

    She has never publicly demonstrated the kind of interest, much less expertise, in federal issues and foreign affairs that should mark a candidate for the second-highest office in the land. Republicans rightfully have criticized the Democratic nominee, Sen. Barack Obama, for his lack of experience, but Palin is a neophyte in comparison; how will Republicans reconcile the criticism of Obama with the obligatory cheering for Palin?…Most people would acknowledge that, regardless of her charm and good intentions, Palin is not ready for the top job. McCain seems to have put his political interests ahead of the nation’s when he created the possibility that she might fill it. It’s clear that McCain picked Palin for reasons of image, not substance.

    Anchorage Daily News:

    “She’s not prepared to be governor. How can she be prepared to be vice president or president? said [State Senate President Lyda Green, a Republican from Palin's hometown of Wasilla]. “Look at what she’s done to this state. What would she do to the nation?”

    Another News-Miner Article:

    Lately her reputation within the state has been bit by allegations of mixing political and family business, and by mistreating one of the state’s premier marine mammals. Palin’s catch-phrase of “openness and transparency” has been tarnished by revelations that staff members tried to have Palin’s former brother-in-law fired from his job as an Alaska state trooper. Also, the governor of the only state with polar bears has adamantly opposed listing the animals as a threatened species, despite strong evidence that global warming has devastated their sea ice environment off Alaska’s coast. Dermot Cole, a longtime columnist for Alaska’s second largest newspaper, the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, called McCain’s choice of Palin “reckless” and questioned her credentials. “Sarah Palin’s chief qualification for being elected governor was that she was not Frank Murkowski,” Cole said of her enormously unpopular predecessor, who lost favor with Alaskans in part because of unpopular budget cuts. “She was not elected because she was a conservative. She was not elected because of her grasp of issues or because of her track record as the mayor of Wasilla.”

  • Xander

    WOW I’m absolutely baffled by some of these responses…those so called “Hillary supporters” now voting for McCain, should STOP lying. You never were a true Hillary supporter because Palin stands for everything that Hillary opposes.

    I can’t believe people are actually willing to switch their vote simply because she’s a WOMAN?! How superficial, what happened to voting for the actual issues at hand? I guess McCain does think the public is dumb enough to fall for this and unfortunately I have to agree judging by some of the comments.

    It’s soo frustrating to think that we have this great right to vote and some people are simply choosing candidates based on looks, gender, race etc. What’s the point? you might as well just stay at home cause your doing the country a disservice…

    I don’t care who you vote for, but PLEASE people do your research and make an educated vote.

  • the real tita

    If she’s as useless as you anit-Palin think she is, then you shouldn’t be worried. If your guys are as good as you say they are, then they have no problem, is there?

    She was picked to reenergize the base…she’s done that. Vote who you like and let the other side vote theirs. This argument is useless if you’ve already made up your minds. Carping about the pick does not concern you since you are all already decided. Let the other side do what they like!

  • Ross

    Let’s all remember, that we have the right to support and VOTE for who we feel like it! No need to insult others, geez, how immature to begin the name calling like a playground of elementary kids. Read your facts, support who YOU WANT, and everyone else if you don’t like it,,, well that’s AMERICA! it’s YOUR VOTING RIGHT!!!!

  • Question

    Interesting…however would she have been selected if she were a man?

  • daise

    it is kind of ridiculous how people assume that hilary supporters will automatically vote for mccain/palin just because of palin is a woman. we should be voting for the party’s IDEOLOGY not for a person’s RACE or GENDER.

  • hehehe

    This woman is going to defeat Obama. hehehe.

  • Palin is greater than Obama

    Sarah Palin is much better than Obama. She is more prepared to tackle the oval office than Obama. She has executive experience while Obama has zilch.

    Sarah is the most popular governor in America.

  • jESS

    1 year of executive experience in Alaska (700,000 people)??? Alaska has less people than Austin, TX.

  • jESS

    Who is Sarah Palin? Here’s some basic background:

    * She was elected Alaska’s governor a little over a year and a half ago. Her previous office was mayor of Wasilla, a small town outside Anchorage. She has no foreign policy experience.1
    * Palin is strongly anti-choice, opposing abortion even in the case of rape or incest.2
    * She supported right-wing extremist Pat Buchanan for president in 2000. 3
    * Palin thinks creationism should be taught in public schools.4
    * She’s doesn’t think humans are the cause of climate change.5
    * She’s solidly in line with John McCain’s “Big Oil first” energy policy. She’s pushed hard for more oil drilling and says renewables won’t be ready for years. She also sued the Bush administration for listing polar bears as an endangered species—she was worried it would interfere with more oil drilling in Alaska.6
    * How closely did John McCain vet this choice? He met Sarah Palin once at a meeting. They spoke a second time, last Sunday, when he called her about being vice-president. Then he offered her the position.7

    This is information the American people need to see. Please take a moment to forward this email to your friends and family.

    We also asked Alaska MoveOn members what the rest of us should know about their governor. The response was striking. Here’s a sample:

    She is really just a mayor from a small town outside Anchorage who has been a governor for only 1.5 years, and has ZERO national and international experience. I shudder to think that she could be the person taking that 3AM call on the White House hotline, and the one who could potentially be charged with leading the US in the volatile international scene that exists today. —Rose M., Fairbanks, AK

    She is VERY, VERY conservative, and far from perfect. She’s a hunter and fisherwoman, but votes against the environment again and again. She ran on ethics reform, but is currently under investigation for several charges involving hiring and firing of state officials. She has NO experience beyond Alaska. —Christine B., Denali Park, AK

    As an Alaskan and a feminist, I am beyond words at this announcement. Palin is not a feminist, and she is not the reformer she claims to be. —Karen L., Anchorage, AK

    Alaskans, collectively, are just as stunned as the rest of the nation. She is doing well running our State, but is totally inexperienced on the national level, and very much unequipped to run the nation, if it came to that. She is as far right as one can get, which has already been communicated on the news. In our office of thirty employees (dems, republicans, and nonpartisans), not one person feels she is ready for the V.P. position.—Sherry C., Anchorage, AK

    She’s vehemently anti-choice and doesn’t care about protecting our natural resources, even though she has worked as a fisherman. McCain chose her to pick up the Hillary voters, but Palin is no Hillary. —Marina L., Juneau, AK

    I think she’s far too inexperienced to be in this position. I’m all for a woman in the White House, but not one who hasn’t done anything to deserve it. There are far many other women who have worked their way up and have much more experience that would have been better choices. This is a patronizing decision on John McCain’s part- and insulting to females everywhere that he would assume he’ll get our vote by putting “A Woman” in that position.—Jennifer M., Anchorage, AK

    Yesterday was John McCain’s 72nd birthday. If elected, he’d be the oldest president ever inaugurated. And after months of slamming Barack Obama for “inexperience,” here’s who John McCain has chosen to be one heartbeat away from the presidency: a right-wing religious conservative with no foreign policy experience, who until recently was mayor of a town of 9,000 people.

    Huh?

    Who is Sarah Palin? Here’s some basic background:

    * She was elected Alaska’s governor a little over a year and a half ago. Her previous office was mayor of Wasilla, a small town outside Anchorage. She has no foreign policy experience.1

    #261: well, jess if she’s everything you say she is then you have nothing to worry about anyhow. Why are you so concerned with her resume when you don’t intend to vote for her anyhow?

  • hehehe

    Obama supporters are scared even they called her this or that, but they know this woman will give Obama headache. She will teach Obama a lesson that is don’t ever ignore a woman’s power.

  • truvy

    Any true Hillary supporters will not vote for McCain/Palin, so don’t fret. The people who say that they are now voting for him b/c he picked a woman weren’t issues people in the first place. It’s all about gender. They want a woman, any woman.

    I’m offended that John McCain would actually think she could take over at the top spot should anything happen to him. It’s a very scary thought that our future could rest in the hands of someone who admits she has no interest in foreign policy and doesn’t pay attention to the Iraq War.

  • Debbie

    He won’t pick up votes from any intelligent people. She’s got alot of skeletons in her closet if you check around……besides the fact that she has noooooooo experience that would qualify her to be VP.

  • PNW_CFO

    As a professional women, I am so disappointed to hear women say that they would betray ALL that Hilary Clinton has done by voting for Sarah Palin JUST because she is a women.

    She is the COMPLETE opposite of Hilary Clinton. We all know, Hilary
    was probably Obama’s first choice, but let’s be honest, she ran a
    mudslinging campaign against him that became more personal, so what did you really think he would do? Sure, I would have loved to have Hillar, BUT she is not on the ticket. GET OVER IT.

    If you like McCain/Palin because you support their platform, fine but if vote only because she is a women, well, you may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer, because I guarantee you Sarah Palin DOES NOT REPRESENT most women I know and RESPECT.

    -Regards,
    Someone who will vote responsibly based on issues that will affect me and my family.

  • Amazing Sarah

    Sarah Palin is an amazing mother. I am in tears reading her story about her baby having downs syndrome. What is so remarkable is that she chose to have her baby even though she knew before hand that the baby has already downs syndrome. She is such a strong woman and a remarkable mother. Every woman should be proud of her.

    Sarah will become a great leader.

  • blucki

    For all you people who are so happy that McCain chose Palin as his VP this is what your possible future VP had to say a month ago about the VP position:

    Sarah Palin: What Exactly Does The VP Do Everyday?
    In an interview just a month ago, she dissed the job, saying it didn’t seem “productive.”

    In fact, she said she didn’t know what the vice president does.

    Larry Kudlow of CNBC’s “Kudlow & Co.” asked her about the possibility of becoming McCain’s ticket mate.

    Palin replied: “As for that VP talk all the time, I’ll tell you, I still can’t answer that question until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the VP does every day? I’m used to being very productive and working real hard in an administration. We want to make sure that that VP slot would be a fruitful type of position, especially for Alaskans and for the things that we’re trying to accomplish up here for the rest of the U.S., before I can even start addressing that question.”

    I ask you this is this the person you want in the VP position, someone who doesnt know what the hell the VP does?!?!?! Yeah, way to go McCain!!!

  • Vicki verdane

    Wildflower509 “hit the nail on the head” (as Sarah would say) in post #9. Sarah Palin is a smart, tough reformer who fought back heroically against corruption and won, against all the odds. In doing so, she won over many people in Alaska to her side, just as she is starting to do now in the other 49 states. Sarah’s approval ratings in Alaska have hovered near or over the 90% mark…..she’s the most popular governor in America, with good reason. The evidence is there in her accomplishments…..she wasn’t afraid to take on Frank Murkowski, Ted Stevens, and others, even while many tried to force her to be muzzled. Take the time to get to know more about Sarah firsthand…..listen to what she says in her own words, not just what others say about her. Hopefully you’ll get to know a remarkable woman. Enjoy the ride. She’s for real.

  • blucki

    To all of you ppl that are so happy that McCain chose Palin, this what your beloved Palin had to say a month ago about the VP position:

    Sarah Palin: What Exactly Does The VP Do Everyday?In an interview just a month ago, she dissed the job, saying it didn’t seem “productive.”

    In fact, she said she didn’t know what the vice president does.

    So I ask you do you REALLY think she is the right candidate for the VP position…I think NOT!!!!!

  • Maria

    I wasn’t going to vote this November. Neither candidates impressed me. When John McCain was going announced his VP i was still not interested until i saw “Sarah Palin”. I asked myself who is she? she’s not on the short list media was naming. Then I read more on her. CNN interviewed a WSJ writer who has been covering and reporting Alaska for 10 years ….

    What he said is, “he was blown away when heard Palin was chosen as the running mate” – I think the whole nation was, if you asked me. He then proceed to talk about Palin as being a very good Governor and a popular one. Charming, appealing and a no-nonsense woman. He continued on to say she stopped corruption in her own party. Stopped government spemding. Took on BP (?) the oil and energy company saying that those men in suits are one tough bullies that Palin single handedly made them fall to their knees , so to speak. Got the big oil corps to pay takes, and Palin took the money and gave it to the people in a form of a rebate worth $1,200!!!!! The WSJ journalist has nothing but good things to say about her. He was blown away. I think to be able to take on a Goliath we call Big Corporations and made them give back to the little people, that’s a true Heroine if you ask me. That’s an accomplishment to a “T”. I can’t say the same for the men AND woman who ever run for president. What’s Obama got on his resume, except Oprah’s boytoy , The Hollyweirdo Community’s p.r. and being HALF black? I’m sick of hearing Obama the black man, he’s HALF black with a white mother who he is still close to him. Let’s not forget that!!!!!!

    This election has now piqued my interest again. I’m going to follow both teams all the way to debate. Then I will make my decision. Before I was one party, now i’m a swing voter.

  • jasmine

    .Im think “Amazing Sarah” #270 is a mental patient.

  • Vicki verdane

    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.

  • Vicki verdane

    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.

  • Christine

    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.

    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 fart 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 penis 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.”

  • Suelue

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

  • Barb

    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.

  • OBAMANA sUCKS.

    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..)

  • aturner

    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

    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

    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!!!!!

    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.

  • http://msnbc Jerry

    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.

  • http://msnbc Jerry

    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”"”.

  • linda

    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

    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.
