GOP United - The Huck and Mitt share the stage with McCain and Palin
The GOP is united and you can tell by reading the absurd B/S the dems have been throwing out there since John McCain announced Gov Palin as his running mate. The democRATS thought this would be a cake walk. They figured with the war and the unpopular ratings Bush has, they can ease right into power. The problem is as bad as the country may dislike Bush, their candidate and messiah cant break 50 in the polls. Think about it - The Cult of Obama is not selling like they thought. Hell,with all his hype and coverage why cant he break 50%? While they are rejoicing about Hurricanes and disasters...The GOP is on the job -
Here’s something you don’t see every day: Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney climbing off the Straight Talk Express.
The former rivals of John McCain joined the Republican presidential candidate and his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, on the campaign bus that pulled into a rally here Sunday afternoon. Despite being passed over for the place on the GOP ticket, both Romney and Huckabee played the part of good foot soldiers as McCain continued his weekend of introducing Palin to the rest of the country.
Huckabee kicked off the festivities at the T.R. Hughes Ballpark, where a throngs of thousands waited hours in anticipation. The former Arkansas governor and one-time Evangelical pastor did what he does best, expressing his support for the Americans in the path of hurricane Gustav. “It is at a time like this that I think all of us are reminded how grateful we are to be in a nation like ours,” he said.
Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, also fell comfortably into his assigned role of attacking Democratic opponent Barack Obama — with a smile, nonetheless.
“You want to make sure that the people of America understand that when it comes to strengthening our economy, we’re not in favor of raising taxes and cutting off trade and drawing a line and saying no nuclear, no coal and no more drilling,” Romney said to the roar of the crowd waving McCain-Palin signs.

20,000 people showed up to see the GOP United crew. The star was Gov Palin.
Palin, a 44-year-old mother of five and a first-term governor, carries strong social conservative credentials that often prove important in those areas. She was raised in a Pentecostal church, is a member of the National Rifle Association and has called herself “as pro-life as any candidate can be.”
“She’s fantastic!” exclaimed Jody Garcia, 48, of nearby Belleville, Ill. “She’s smart, she’s young, she’s energetic, she’s has all the right stances on issues.”
“I would have been supporting McCain anyway, but now I’m excited,” Garcia added.
Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder proclaimed that McCain has “supercharged” his campaign with the selection of Palin.
“Before, the attitude of folks on our side was, ‘Well, we’re going to vote for McCain, but we’re not enthusiastic,’ and the question of how much we’re going to go out and work was in doubt,” Kinder said in an interview. Now, “our coalition is reassembled as a fighting army. LINK
Palin has energized the base and the momentum will grow. The democrats are scared because the big O cant break 50% and he received zero bounce after the DNC and they know Palin will take some Hillary voters with her. How many? Enough.
