On The Right Side: Obama should throw in the towel

Ballgame over! Sarah Palin, govenor of Alaska, was absolutely the best pick McCain could have made for a VP running mate. She is young, conservative, a leader, the only one of the four candidates who has executive experience, pro-gun, pro-life, and on and on.

After she spoke Friday afternoon, it was obvious she was going to be too much for Joe, the mouth, Biden to take on. I can't wait for the debates. We might as well have the inauguration now and save the public a lot of taxpayer dollars.

As a matter of fact, my liberal friend who bet me a lunch over the winner of the election might as well buy it for me now and start licking his wounds. I seem to remember his calling or e-mailing me and reminding me how much he was going to enjoy his free meal. I can't wait to pull that e-mail out for future use.

It was amazing (and showed how scared the Democrats are) how the Obama campaign came out immediately to disparage her background. They described her background as simply being a mayor of a small town of 9,000. Other than being petty and childish, it was extremely stupid. I hope all the small towns across the U.S. see how much saint Barack really thinks of them and remember his statement in November.

Also, she has more executive experience and a longer record of accomplishment than Barack Obama and Little Joe Biden combined. As a matter of fact, as a conservative friend just pointed out, even Cindy McCain has more executive experience than the both of them.

I hope The Daily Star and other media have the courage to tell the public of her background. But, nevertheless, keep it up, Barack. I certainly don't want to silence you. Whenever you don't have a pre-written script to read, you keep putting your foot in your mouth.

  • Schreibman tops Chris Gibson on women's issues

    As the time to vote draws near, we need to remember how money can run politics more than we can. Raising funds is a prominent (if not the dominant) task of getting elected. Raising issues is also crucial, but those efforts are subject to distortion and fear-mongering.

  • Romney focuses on self; Obama emphasizes unity

    Mitt Romney criticizes President Obama for saying a person's success is rooted in his community, and is not all his alone. Romney belittles this with his belief in individual initiative. He is better at the put-down than the push-up.

  • Romney shows little regard for common man

    The Republicans in Congress have voted over and over, 33 times, redundantly and uselessly, to rescind what they call Obamacare.

  • Scouts' gay ban creates problem where none exists

    The Boy Scouts of America's "emphatic reaffirmation" of its vow to exclude any and all homosexuals from its hallowed ranks is ill-considered and pathetic, especially in view of its having reviewed the matter for two years.
