McPalin Got Bushwhacked

with 5 comments

Having said little during this Presidential campaign, I feel that now is the time for me to throw my 2 cents worth in. Things are looking bleak for Johnny Mac. Despite choosing a running mate that is wildly popular for her charm, looks, folksy mannerisms, and gender, McCain has failed himself, his party,and Sarah Palin with that same choice. Sarah Palin, despite all her accomplishments, simply is not ready to assume the Presidency and in our hearts, we all know it. One cannot ignore the idea that McCain, at his age, may not finish even a first term leaving Palin to assume the office of the most powerful nation on earth. Palin indeed has the intellect and backbone we need in a President. What she lacks is the seasoning it takes to be a viable choice. At this point in time, she is more the Spokesperson than a Statesman. To evolve into the latter will take time and time is what she has too little of to aid McCain in his quest.

To her credit, I believe Sarah Palin could someday be a viable candidate for the Presidency in her own right but that would be many years and many battles down the road.

Experience is what this election has come down to. This is not at all to say that Barack Obama has the necessary experience to be our President, he without a scintilla of doubt does not. What will more than likely propel Obama into the Oval Office is another type of experience and that is the experience we have had with the money swilling and power grabbing of George W. Bush. McCain has had to run his campaign on two fronts: trying to detach himself the failures of Bush while simultaneously trying to show the many reasons that Barack Obama and his Quasi-Socialist policies can only harm America. Sarah Palin simply did not nor could not at this time, help win that awesome battle but I can’t think of anyone that would have tried harder than she has.

My prediction, sadly stated: Obama wins by 10%

  1. I so disagree with you, Grrand Wazoo. Not only does Palin have more experience than Obama, she has the ‘right’ common sense to make decisions that will benefit all citizens, not just the extreme left. Both McCain and Palin are down-to-earth Americans with middle class upbringing and values, not extreme ‘spread the wealth’ Marxist, pro-terrorist, defunct liberal lobbying sympathies.

    I predict that if Obama wins, it will be because of Obama’s community groundworking behind the scenes of ACORN’s fraudulent voter registration within the Democrat-leaning states.

  2. My stand was not that Obama has more( or any for that matter) experience than Palin,neither has the political accumen to be the President at this time. Acorn will have alot to do with the outcome of this election and their “success” will be due to the ignorance of those who chose to deal with them. Isn’t registering to vote being taught in the home or even a basic Civics class any more?

  3. I agree that both Palin and Obama could use more experience in governing on the large-scale. But there is a huge difference between them: Sarah Palin knows a naked emperor when she sees one; Obama just wants to be the naked emperor!

  4. No Democrat in the last 40 years except Jimmy Carter has won a majority of the popular vote, and he had Watergate. Not even the best politician of our time, Bill Clinton, was able to do it.

    Even if ACORN can steal 3% of the vote for him, I don’t think Obama can win by more than 5. If Obama beats McCain by 10, or breaks 53% of the popular vote even with ACORN’s help, I’ll print up these words and eat them.

  5. What about Obama’s experience? Palin has more experience than Obama as far as being in politics goes.
