Oh yes, Obama’s camp really wants to make sure we know that McCain’s and Bush’s speechwriters wrote this speech. Hmm…I guess we’re suppose to assume that Obama writes all his own speeches. Give me a break! Obama’s campaign released the following statement:
“The speech that Gov. Palin gave was well delivered, but it was written by George Bush’s speechwriter and sounds exactly like the same divisive, partisan attacks we’ve heard from George Bush for the last eight years,” said Obama spokesman Bill Burton. “If Gov. Palin and John McCain want to define ‘change’ as voting with George Bush 90% of the time, that’s their choice, but we don’t think the American people are ready to take a 10% chance on change.”
They obviously forget that the person who is divisive is Obama who likes to break the American people into class levels and race groups rather than join us together as Americans. And what are referred to as “attacks” are merely holes being poked into Obama’s false facade. The Democrats act like they do not attack, only the Republicans do that. Message to the politicians: You all do it. I’m sure I heard something about McCain and houses and something about his age… We want to hear about issues and I look forward to the debates when we can get into the meat of those things. And I think Sarah Palin had every right to give a few zingers back to Obama who started the whole thing by disqualifying her experience to be vice president by ignoring the fact she is Governor of Alaska and belittling little town America like those Americans are not just as important as the Americans in his big town Chicago. Word to Obama: You need to reach small town “bitter” America if you have any hope to win this thing. Palin reaches us there, which is why you had to belittle a speech she clearly had a hand in writing since it was mostly about her accomplishments and family. Who would deliver a speech they did not believe in?
Palin and McCain are about change – she’s as different from Washington as they come, even going after her own party. That takes guts and integrity – something sorely lacking in Washington. And what do they know about Palin and her thoughts on President Bush since she has not had the opportunity to vote with him? And even though I’m one of Andrea Mitchell’s uneducated women out here since I never finished at the university, I believe I know a snarky critique when I see one and this statement is just that. They can dish it, but they can’t take it.
