The Political Pendulum

Posts Tagged ‘Bush

It is frightening to think that Mrs. Palin would unflinchingly support Israel, or any of our allies, beyond the point of nuclear destruction, without the notion of scrutiny or diplomacy.  Sarah’s colloquialisms may come off as ‘foksy’, but even the hardcore conservatives are waking up and smelling the java, when it comes to her candidacy. 

Palin is the executive -which gives her more experience than any other candidate in the race, by the way- of a State that has a financial surplus because of taxes on strategic commodities like oil.  Oil has risen dramatically in price and she has been able to buy off the electorate in her State to the tune of about $3,500 per person this year.  Alaska, despite the Mccain camps refutations, is the biggest panhandler in the Union when it comes to Gov’t handouts.  

Palin has not had to overcome adversity when it comes to political crisis.  She is not tested.  This makes her political abrasiveness even more curious.  Where did she become so cynical?  The Good-Old-Boy system that she rails against is still operating.  She has merely done what the Republican party is doing to George Bush – pretend that they were never part of the problem when all along they enabled the cisis’ of today. 

Palin is privileged -at about 3:30 into the video she says hello on behalf of her son to his “former nanny”.  They own an airplane, for goodness sake.  She asks for divine intervention for a $30 billion dollar pipeline. 

This Governor has never wet her chops in Washington and instead wails about changing the Capitol. With this week’s economic crisis, Palin’s irrelevance has been defined.  Her lack of Washington diplomacy now looks to be a hindrance rather than a help.  Her intestinal reactions would only compliment McCain’s hysteria and put us all on the bridge-to-nowhere.

Sarah Palin is not unqualified to be vice president because she’s a she. Sarah Palin is unqualified to be vice president because Sarah Palin is not qualified to be vice president.

“When the president of the United States is from your own party, to present yourself as a change agent is not the easiest thing to pull off,” said Joe Trippi, a Democratic strategist. Referring to Senator Barack Obama, the Democratic nominee, Mr. Trippi added, “All Obama has to do is say, ‘Bush-McCain, Bush-McCain.’ ”
