...is all for Palin, because, in part, of the enemies she’s made. And she is exactly the type of person that real conservatives should encourage to ascend to leadership in the Republican party. But he’s still a little shaky about voting for the ticket, because he views McCsin as reckless and bellicose. Rod’s thoughts are characteristic of a relatively small but significant faction: Those who want to vote Republican in spite of Bush’s and McCain’s war in Iraq and aggressive foreign policy in general. Sarah is clearly helping to bring all sorts of disaffected Republicans home.
"Those who want to vote Republican in spite of Bush’s and McCain’s war in Iraq and aggressive foreign policy in general."
bush (may i write like e.e. & peter) sought to change the nasty dynamics of the post-9/11 middle east, while bush and mccain, in light of military and political defeat of bush's post-9/11 objective, merely sought to say "no" to the popular anti-u.s. defeatist vietnam syndrome.
methinks those who embrace this popular anti-u.s. defeatist vietnam syndrome should vote for obama. i mean, what's so damn difficult about this? vote for the defeatists party, folks, vote for obama. if you think america is a bully on the world's stage, vote for obama.
and quite playing this silly phony peter lawler-game of foreign policy cat and mouse for crying out loud! sheesh.
the problem is, stephen, if your advice were strictly followed, the election would be lost.
Sarah is clearly helping to bring all sorts of disaffected Republicans home.
I think she will help much in that direction. Shoot, even I have had thoughts of voting for this ticket after last night.
I did tonight also until about half way through the speech. It was then that he abandoned the solid conservative rhetoric for some grand plans to fix education, energy, and probably cure cancer. This is the "mav" speaking - his non conservative real inner self.
Is it to late to reverse this ticket, and make Sarah the P?? I would vote for it then...
