McCain putting Obama on Ice?
Well now, I have been sitting here waiting with many others to see who McCain would ask to be his running mate. I am impressed. I am a small town woman facing small town problems every single day of my life. I am tired of the Good Ol' Boys way of doing things. I am tired of people in Government telling how my life is and what needs to take place to fix my life.
Barack Obama's Campaign Spokesman Bill Burton says of John McCain's choice of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate:
"Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency."
This comment reminded me of another Obama quote that really ticked this small town woman off:
"You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them,... And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."
Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska, Mother of 5, Mother of an army soldier scheduled to be sent to Iraq next month, Commander in Chief of the Alaska National Guard, woman who was on the PTA, admits to being a hockey mom, worked as a commercial fisherman alongside her husband, was Mayor of Wasilla, Ak after two terms on the city council. This woman hunts and fishes and is a life long member of the NRA. Yep, this woman has the small town voice and I am listening.
