McCain to PUMAs: Your voice has been heard

We teach our daughters that they can be anything they want to be. That, if they work hard, they will see the fruits of their labor. The treatment of Hillary by the media, the DNC and the Obama campaign, however, completely undercuts that message. We can tell them they can be anything, but when they see a competent woman being brushed aside like old linens for someone significantly less qualified to fill a position – and very publicly as in the case of Hillary – it becomes a lot harder a message to deliver.

But today, when McCain picked Palin, he reaffirmed that message: Daughters of America, you CAN be anything you want to be.

Palin is a tireless reformer, uprooting corruption wherever she finds it, even in her own party. She’s brilliant on energy policy as her track record in Alaska shows. She’s a very hard worker who forgoes luxuries to save the taxpayers money. When she became governor, she was offered a private jet. She refused and instead gave the money back to the people. And, perhaps the main reason she was picked by McCain, is she possesses a strong independent MAVERICK spirit, like McCain.  There were other qualified people, including other women, but ultimately, I believe it was Palin’s indomitable spirit that won McCain’s vote.

McCain is clearly not a man afraid of successful, powerful women. Just look at Cindy.

McCain sent a message today when he picked Palin, someone with impressive executive, energy and reform accomplishments, someone who has worked incredibly hard for her constituents, and that message was well received.

I wasn’t that enthusiastic about McCain before, but I am today. Next time I talk to my daughters, and I tell them they can be anything, they’ll know I’m telling the truth.

McCain/Palin ’08!

    John McCain is brilliant. In one deft move he has changed the dynamics of the campaign. Sarah Palin is perfect: a hard working, well spoken representative of conservative thoutht. As Kirsten Powers said in an article this morning she represents a problem for the Obamabots. Their knee jerk reaction (sorry I couldn’t resist), was to raise the experience issue: perfect. Sarah has more real accomplishments than Obama and has actually worked with members of the opposing party. Further, the more the Left Wing Attack Machine does its thing, the more women will recall what was done to Hillary. Thank you and God bless you Mr. McCain.

    I am a Democrat for McCain/Palin and I assure you I am not the only one. Notice the flurry of negative attacks already launch at Palin from the very leftist MSM(CNN, MSNBC) and it will only get worse. If the MSM, inisist on racheting up attacks on her and once again expose their ugly misogynist heads, I say BRING IT ON. Women have had enough! Please remember, Obama who is running for President spent 143 days in the US Senate when he began his run for POTUS and has been campaigning ever since. His record is so slim, one could easily dismiss it as laughable and yet they have the AUDACITY to question Palin and her Executive experience as a Governor? Obama has replaced a SLENDER record with ethereal speeches INFUSED with hope and change canard, but when all is said and done, he is nothing more than the most magnificant fraud our nation has ever witnessed, brought to us by “Axelrod Productions”

    We have been outraged at the treatment of Hillary who we supported both for President and for VP. We were disappointed in her “caving in” to the DNC, yet we understand that she pretty much had to do so in order to continue her career.
    We are delighted that McCain picked Palin, but still had a few doubts about her until we watched her acceptance speech. She is a genuine and sincere person which is a striking and welcome contrast to Obama and his manufactured haughty illusion of himself.
    Yes, Palin will come under tremendous attack from the leftwing and her enemies on the right wing, so it is very important to remember that as this happens, it is just another typical attempt at tearing down a strong and competent woman who is too threatening to the status quo. McCain/Palin 08

    I’m laughing at you all. Palin is a bad, bad move for many reasons. First, she is far right, endorsing the reversal of Roe vs. Wade, and does not want abortion EVEN IN THE CASE OF RAPE. There is a National Enquirer story about to break around her Down’s Syndrome “son”, TRIG, who is really her daughter’s child that she is raising! I kid you not. This woman is disastrous. And, by the way, it takes the “experience” factor off the table for both candidates, although McCain would have benefited more. PUMAs can yell and scream all they want, McCain/Palin will be in for some rough times. I am most waiting for the debate between Biden and Palin, it ought to be a doozy, like Howdie Doody entering a knife fight. See ya.

    NoWay, have you ever tried forming a coherent original thought? Your entire post is nothing but delusional rants mixed in with far-left Obama talking points. For example, your comment about Sarah palin debating Biden is parroted from Marc Ginsburg who said, “…putting Sarah Palin into a debate with Joe Biden is going to be like throwing Howdy Doody into a knife fight!”

    If anything, the one thing that sticks out in your post is fear. Pure unbridled fear of a little ole’ female governor from Alaska who just so happens to be wildly successful, ethical, accomplished and very well liked. And you look to the national enquirer to save you from her popularity, competence and personal charisma. Sad.

    Oh, and it actually makes experience more of an issue, as the Obama camp thinks that’s the best way to attack her, thus, rasing the issue most detrimental to them. How’s that for irony.
