McCain beats Obama

Things change quickly some times. Now the Republican leader John McCain seems to take over the White house. The reason for that is mainly his excellent choice of his vice-president, Pelin. Even though I strongly dislike her stands on abortion and more social values I must say she seems to be a tough bitch (babe in total control of herself) 😉 and it is exciting to see how she smash down the liberals (social-liberals) and their arguments into pieces. Much better than Obama’s grayish choice of vice-president.

She truly is a pit bull in politics. A colorful one …

  1. Hi
    I like your point of view. I’m onlineproducer for purplestates.tv – we’re working with the washington post – “regular people covering the election.” Would you come to our site and give some of your perspective? It’s interesting. This week we’re talking about the economy.
    Thanks!

  2. McCain and Palin are good, decent people.
    So are Obama and Biden.
    There is, though one glaring difference.
    McCain/Palin want to continue the Iraq war.
    Obama/Biden want to end it.

    I want to discuss something Republicans REALLY love: Money.

    Estimates are that just under 100,000 people have been killed in Iraq.
    (http://www.iraqbodycount.org/)

    Cost estimate: $3 TRILLION final, $1 TRILLION spend so far
    (http://www.csmonitor.com/2008/0310/p16s01-wmgn.html)

    COST TO US: between $10 and $30 million per terrorist!

    Ya know, I just don’t think we’re getting our money’s worth, Aye?!!
    Do you? I say we END THIS WAR!

    Following the party convention, the candidate typically gets a bump in the polls. It will even out shortly, I suspect. Palin? Other than abortion, she has given very few policy stances publicly since being nominated as VP. I also found her tone during her speeches to be very demeaning and disrespectful of the Democratic ticket. After the selection of Biden as Obama’s VP, who I have strongly supported since before the Iowa the Caucuses, and seeing Palin’s negativity, I will officially not be voting for the Republican ticket. If you want a pragmatic, intelligent individual in power, consider Joe Biden. No ideologically driven nut job there. Evidence: watch his most recent interview on Meet the Press from this past Sunday. The guy is cool under pressure and thoughtful. In no way could Sarah Palin come close to his poise and expertise. I can hardly wait for the VP debate.

    Yey, Lee is back. I’m so glad to hear from you again. How was your hot shot internship period in Iceland? 😀
    Yea, this is what almost all other commentators say..about the convention “trend”, but I think we see a shift here actually. Barack Obama had a chance electing Hillery Clinton as his VP but he didn’t. That was stupid from an objective point of view since that would have had united the Democrats and it would also have been an outstretched to the middle-class women that would have voted for the DP but now instead will stay home watching porn, cooking or whatever during election day.
    I don’t know much about Joe Biden except he’s a very pragmatic man, as you say, plus he’s been in the game since forever. Experience might be good (since that is one of the things Obama’s been criticized for) but I bet my head on charisma beats that in the end of the day – especially in your country. And there you have Pelin – who both attract possible voters from the female middle/upper-class who would have voted for the DP but now are pissed at Obama, plus she IS charismatic, no doubt about it.

    Christianliberal: Correction! Palin/McCain wants to stay there till the job is done. They don’t want to wage war forever and ever. Why would they want to do that? Obama and his companion wants to leave and abandon the Iraqis and take care of their own business. I think that is ignorant and selfish. Freedom must be defended and freedom is not free.
    Sorry to say so …
