I will be watching the debate between Palin and Biden later (3am in the morning here). As CNN reports that some democrats are worried that Palin would be unexpectedly strong in the debate I like to through in my 5 cents: If you look on what McCain and Palin did wrong in a short period of time Biden could totally suck in that debate and it wont matter at all. As long as he does not beat her up in public it will be good.
We will see, though. But I guess I will be right.
If Sarah Palin knows Russia I guess Putin must be the ideal new Alaskan Governor as Russia is a neighbour of Alaska. At least thats what one might think if one follows Republican argumentation. 😉
She said she had been visiting troops in Iraq and now it was admitted that she did not. Miss Falsehood is really the Queen of Lies as it seems. I never have heard so many lies coming from one person in my whole lifetime. It seems that lying is her real qualification. Unbelievable. Does she know anything at all? And that does not really matter to republican voters? OMG. Maybe she can walk on water, too?
I have listened carefully – and the only thing she had to say about experience was that firstly that being a governour of Alaska is challenging and that the critics of the media actually targetted the fact of her not being part of the establishment. So from my view she has not made any point she really HAD to make – and this would have been why she would be a good president. I guess the McCain team has already given up to prove her experience, because they just cant. Why else would they have let her say nothing against all those arguments. And again she talked about how she opposed that bridge, that others say she never did. Weak performance, no facts.
Another thing that was interesting was as her husband dropped the little baby to the youngest, 7 year old, kid who could hardly hold the reposnsibility just because he wanted to stand up and wave his hand. So somehow this shows that he wont be the one caring for the children while his wife is busy.
This whole family looks false and staged – they use all their kids for political purposes (their son who goes to Iraque, the baby with down syndrom,…) I find this disgusting.
Sharing some of my thoughts – I think as many americans realise that Sarah Palin is inexperienced – she needs to make a real great speech so she can show that even if she isn’t that experienced she is at least worth voting for. McCain jumping in for her to defend her has only increased the doubts. So she really needs to dig herself out of this whole. If she cant do all of that she might still convince some hardcore Replublicans but not the mainstream America. We will hear and see if she will meet the very high standards. I will watch her speech on CNN.
Only a small interview was enough for McCain to retreat from a scheduled interview with CNN? What kind of weak is that? Guess what happens when he does this also when talking to leaders of foreign countries! Watch this…. bravo to CNN and Campbell Brown for doing just what is there job and standing firm:
I have been following the US elections for a while now. From the outside perspective of Germany I can say that somebody like McCain would not get more than 3% of the votes here, really. Not that we would not have conservatives here – but even the Conservatives here are more like Democrats in the U.S and the socialist parties are more left.
What I find particular funny is that McCains take on Obama has always been about his lack of experience. And now he selectes Sarah Palin as a possible vice president – and also Fred Thompson continues to do so even now. How can they still do this. What I heard so far she may be smart but if McCain really thinks she could be president with NO experience in international politics then the case is made that the Republicans really do not care about experience – so why do they think they even can think to make the case, still. They have really killed their only viable argument – the rest is bullshit.
But really elections in the U.S. as well as in many democratic countries seem to be not about real facts, but about what you say and who you think will vote for you now. So McCain uses Palin as a reason for women and conservatives to vote for him. I guess this means that experience does not seem to matter a lot for americans?
