Default McCain-Palin

I hope they can do better than repeating the same cliche's over and over.
Is there more substance?
Are the speech writers on day off? I want to hear something new.
It reminds me of the guy who tells the same joke everytime he gets drunk.

Holy impatience batman.

They’re not even done sweeping up the confetti and folding up the chairs. The speech writers have probably been writing nonstop for a week. At least give them a day or 2 to see how their convention speeches were received before they refine their meggage.

I watched the convention last night. It looked like somebody over medicated the old folks home and left the door open. Palin is VERY necessary for the Republican party. The audience looked like the bingo bus to the casino took a wrong turn and ended up at the convention. Palin actually gives the party a chance.

Yea...considering that is the generation with all the money ( political clout) the folks that control the cash in the country sway the votes. Rich middle aged people outnumber poor young ones about 2-1 Say baby boom generation

Oh yea... those are the people in the country that pay 85% of the taxes alsoI

ncome Category 2004 AGI Percent of all income Percent of income taxes paid
Top 1% Over $328K 37%
Top 5% Over $137.5K 57%
Top 10% Over $99.1K 68%
Top 25% Over $60K 85%
Top 50% Over $30.1K 97%
Bottom 50% Under $30.1K 3%

I'm sorry if you misunderstood.
Nobama, No way, No how.
He does not have the answer and does not possess the credentials for even the VP slot.
I want the McCain-Palin ticket.
I just hope they can do better getting their position out. They have a terrific momentum, and they can still lose.

If elected I think this ticket will work more like a team than any other before. They can do the job.
It's their campaign that sux.

And somehow they can only muster up around 50% of the vote. In addition, these people will be dead in the next 20 years. And the numbers will fall. This is the same thing that is happening to the Catholic church.

Obama is going to change your taxes! He is somehow going to lower them AND GIVE you free healthcare!! He is the modern messiah!

On that note. I saw it put in such a great way.

Say your house needs a roof. Do you

A. Hire the guy that has been around roofs and done them for most of his life.

or

B. Hire the guy that says he knows how to do it but never really been on top of a house.

I liked the frequent "NOBAMA" signs we saw in the UP a couple weeks ago. Unfortunately, I would have tire tracks across my lawn if I put one up in this Dumocrap town.

Actually, I'd be happy if that's the worst that happened.

This reflects my point.
Rather than say something tricky written by a pundit yahoo,
McCain blurts out "We are going to quit sending seven hundred billion a year to countries that don't like us much"

That Is the real John McCain speaking and it ain't fancy.

I worry that that line will come back to haunt her. I do not think she should get into a resume comparing contest with Obama, because I think she would lose badly.
