Comments on: McCain hails Palin power in the mid-term elections http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2010/10/19/mccain-hails-palin-power-in-the-mid-term-elections/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Robert76 http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2010/10/19/mccain-hails-palin-power-in-the-mid-term-elections/comment-page-1/#comment-410961 Thu, 21 Oct 2010 02:40:50 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=30702#comment-410961 I have often wondered if he picked Palin simply so the Repubs could lose and then blame the Dems for all the problems.

He might have had my vote if he had picked any other candidate than the seemingly delusional quitter from Alaska. Every time I hear her speak I wince at the number of people who claim to be followers. I have got to believe that they either are not truely listening to her, or are for anyone who is anti-Obama (a movement that started even before he was elected).

Worship at her “alter” makes me truely fear for the American that I have faithfully served while I was in the Army.

It’s something all together difference to have the skills and a realistic plan to actualize those ideas. Sarah Palin does not have the skills nor does she have a plan that we can all examine and verify. All she does is talk. We already have a truck load of politicians that offer little more than lip service. As far as John McCain is concerned, I will vote for whoever runs runs against this charlatan. Even if it’s Bugs Bunny.

At least Bush didn’t spend 90% of his time blaming other people for his failures, nor did he socialize our country. I’ll take Bush’s more common language skills over that smooth talking, do nothing career public employee we now call our President!

Maybe that is why he’s moved to the right. He does not want folks such as me to view him favorably anymore, because that means he is foresaking his consertavite roots/base.

As for Palin, it boggles the mind that someone as ill-equipped as her can wink her way to the top of the political heap. Just when we thought it couldn’t get worse than George W. Bush, here comes George W. Bush in a skirt. I guess republicans have completely given up on running candidates who can speak the queen’s English or who have read more books than they’ve written.

I’m a Republican, but I can’t imagine ANYONE, other than another non-visionary (McCain), saying Palin is a visionary. McCain was a terrible nomination for the Republican candidate in 2008 and made the biggest political blunder imaginable when he selected Palin as his running mate. If there were any real alternative, other than the pitiful Democratic party, I would convert! If McCain and Palin truly had any love for the USA and truly didn’t want the Democrats to continue controlling every branch of government, they would stay under the radar. Their comments are perfect soundbites for what’s wrong with the Republican Party!

It would be best if you keep your mouth shut and ride the wave of ignorance that got you here.

Palin expresses the feelings and positions of a very large segment of the country. She stands for those things which are seen to be threatened by a government that has lost its way. She stands for what many in this country stand for, a government that derives its power from the governed, and to which the governed now want that power returned. She is the voice of a mighty force among this country’s people.

Since then she has quit the only job she had that gave her any experience – and that was under pressure of criminal cases against her.

How does this make her a candidate for anything more than late night talk shows?
