McCain/Palin - I am on board.

I have been watching the Republican national convention (as I also watched much of the DNC). I thoroughly enjoyed last night. I am thrilled about Sarah Palin. She has energized my enthusiasm for this election. She represents my particular demographic - she is only two years older than I and she has one child more than I do. (I wish I had 1/25 of her guts!) Most importantly, she is a true conservative like myself.

She said something about the "Columns" that were there at Obama's speech that totally cracked me up. However, my favorite quote of the night was from America's Mayor, Rudy Guiliani:
"Change is not a destination, and hope is not a strategy."

He hits the nail on the head about the Obama rhetoric. The democratic candidate for president is full of a lot of fluff and not much substance. He talks very poetically, but practically speaking, he has no idea what to do with this country if he takes the reigns.

... and then there are his scary views on infanticide.


  • Sarah Palin is great.

  • Hi Rose
    I agree with you. Sarah Palin sure
    lifted my spirits.

  • Hi, Rose. Welcome aboard! :-)

  • Matthew,
    Yes she is.

    Hi Peggie!
    "Lifted my spirits" would be a good description for me as well.

    Thank you. There really isn't any choice for me but to vote for McCain... and now I am actually enthused about doing so. :~)

  • I thought the funniest line last night was: ...I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a 'community organizer,' except that you have actual responsibilities.

  • I have to admit to not being totally sold on everything John McCain has to say, but Sarah Palin...now that's another matter!

    She is a once in a lifetime phenom!

  • Douglas Wilson has an interesting blog (click here) where he is discussing Sara Palin. He ponders the pros and cons of it all. There are some interesting things to consider.

  • I agree Rose. So glad to actually be able to vote FOR someone finally! Thankful the Lord seems to be holding out mercy to the nation if we'll accept it. God Bless.

  • Earl, I read that. Thta is interesting. I haven't even given much consideration to whether or not it is right for her to do this. To me, it is just a given on our society that women work and that they are involved in politics. THat being a given, I am now concerned over having GOOD women in office. I guess you could say I have given up the argument over whether it is right or not for them to do this. Maybe that is lazy of me; I am not sure. :~)

  • Joe and David,
    It sounds like you both are on the same page as I am with this! I think McCain is McGenius for picking her. heehee

  • Hi Rose,

    The thing that Douglas Wilson writes about McCain's chasing after his present wife while still married to his first wife -- and the trust issue is more of a concern to me.

    There are other interesting issues that Wilson raised. But you know what, I would be much more comfortable with Sarah Palin as president than almost any other male politician I can think of. A compassionate hockey mom as president I think trumps years of so-called foreign policy of anyone else in politics.

  • I'm surprised that everyone is so positive about Palin. We know less of her than Obama. And she seems to me to lack compassion in her speech as much as McCain. I don't know. I'm scared of this election. None of the candidates have a peaceful humble attitude I desire in a leader. There's quite a game afoot.

  • Earl,
    Yes that certainly is a problem. Well, we don't have a perfect choice but I believe we have to make a choice and vote. I think every Christian should vote.

    Yes, there is quite a game afoot. It is very much a game, I agree.

  • Does anyone else notice that when Sarah Palin talks she has an accent? It almost sounds Scottish to me. What is that accent?

    By Blogger Rose~, at 9/13/2008 12:40 PM  

  • Rose,

    To be honest, it sounds more Mid-America (like possibly Kansas, or that area) to me, though she is said to be from Idaho. God Bless ye!!
