Obama’s campaign on the choice of Sarah Palin

From Bill Burton:

“Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency. Governor Palin shares John McCain’s commitment to overturning Roe v. Wade, the agenda of Big Oil and continuing George Bush’s failed economic policies — that’s not the change we need, it’s just more of the same,” said Bill Burton, Obama Campaign Spokesman.

How would I have written it?

“John McCain introduced a relative unknown as his running mate today. We all look forward to getting to know this candidate.”

It leaves an opening for further comment, but immediately brings to mind that we don’t know much about this candidate.

Once again in Obama’s campaign, small town America – you know, where the majority of voters off public assistance live – doesn’t count to him. And evidently someone didn’t really check Palin’s record with big oil.

Burton should think before he speaks again. It could be a deal breaker to hundreds of thousands of Americans.

    “Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency.”

    Wow, what a misstep on Burton’s part. One, she’s not a hearbeat away until McCain is elected, can’t beleive he drew that strong an inference intentionally. Two, if elected Obama doesn’t even have as much executive experience as the former mayor of a town of 9,000, and IS the heartbeat of the presidency with zero foreign policy experience. You would think that for the past 4 weeks the Dems drafted, for every potential Republican running mate, talking points that they could hit the ground with immediately upon announcement. I gotta believe Burton talked off the top of his head, dangerous mistake.

    Any post Obama speech bump in the polls? Haven’t seen anything yet today.

    Apparently the Obama campaign didn’t watch her acceptance speech first. She hit it out of the park! Obama has 143 days in the Senate and his campaign says she isn’t experienced enough? We don’t get to wait until the last heartbeat to worry about who has foreign policy experience if Obama is elected. She is ready to pick up the banner for the 18 million disenfranchised Hillary supporters.


  4. Someone should mention that Pelosi is two heartbeats away and that’s really scary!
