Sarah Palin says Obama running against Bush, not McCain

Sarah Palin says Obama running against Bush, not McCain

Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin on Tuesday said Barack Obama is running as though his opponent is President Bush instead of John McCain. She called it a strategy that’s “wearing pretty thin.”

Addressing several hundred supporters at a fundraiser, the Alaska governor said voters know McCain as a political maverick and war hero and that Obama is trying too hard to link the Arizona senator to the unpopular GOP president.

“Our opponents spend so much time pretending they are running against the current president. I think it’s wearing pretty thin,” Palin said, without mentioning Bush’s name. “The American people are really waking up and saying no, the status quo is not one of the boxes to check.”

Palin Report Due Out Today

Sen. John McCain unleashed his harshest attack ad yet today, charging that Sen. Barack Obama “lied” about his relationship to 1960s anti-war terrorist Bill Ayers.

Despite the GOP’s televised attack, it was the Republican team of McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin who braced for bad news today.

Here’s a breakdown of Sarah Palin‘s thought processes. (DailyKos Image)

If you had trouble following the Vice Presidential debate last night – don’t worry, adennak at DailyKos has got you covered.

It’s not off-base to say that Sarah Palin did better than expected last night – but at the same time, we really need to analyze the way she dodged questions she didn’t know the answers to and why her answers sounded like canned responses peppered with key phrases such as maverick, partisan, six-pack Joe, hockey mom and energy. You must admit, it did get confusing slash frustrating when you were thinking what question is she answering?

Poll: Joe Biden wins debate, Palin exceeds expectations
A national poll of people who watched the vice presidential debate suggests that Democratic Sen. Joe Biden won but also hints that Republican Gov. Sarah Palin exceeded expectations.

The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey is not a measurement of the views of all Americans, since only people who watched the debate were questioned.

Joe Biden

Fifty-one percent of those polled thought Biden did the best job in Thursday night’s debate, while 36 percent thought Palin did the best job.

But respondents said the folksy Palin was more likable, scoring 54 percent to Biden‘s 36 percent.

Sen. Joe Biden gave a knowledgeable but restrained performance in Thursday night’s Debate, while Gov. Sarah Palin sought to show that her accomplishments as governor and mayor prove she is qualified to be vice president.

Biden slammed John McCain, saying that “he has been no maverick on the issues that matter to people lives,” but his only challenge to Palin was asking her to articulate a policy on the Iraq war.

Palin pushed her “track record of reform” and said she and McCain are a ” team of mavericks.”

“We’re known for putting partisan politics aside to just get the job done,” she said.

Sarah Palin tried to paint Barack Obama as “dangerous” for being open to meeting with rogue leaders without preconditions.

“An issue like that taken up by a presidential candidate goes beyond naivete and goes beyond poor judgment,” Palin said.

Sarah Palin tours stage at Republican National Convention


Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin touted her small-town roots and swiped at Democrat Barack Obama during a highly anticipated speech to the Republican convention on Wednesday, ridiculing her critics as “the Washington elite” who did not understand everyday life in America.

In her public debut in the spotlight, John McCain’s choice for vice president portrayed herself as a Washington outsider and came out swinging against Obama and members of the news media who have raised questions about her qualifications.

Sarah Palin

“I’ve learned quickly these past few days that if you’re not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone,” the Alaska governor said in remarks prepared for delivery at the convention.

“But here’s a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I’m not going to Washington to seek their good opinion — I’m going to Washington to serve the people of this country.”

Sarah Palin

Since McCain made the virtually unknown Palin his choice for running mate, she has been the center of a media storm fueled by disclosures about her unmarried teenage daughter’s pregnancy, a probe into her role in an Alaskan official’s firing and questions about her political record.

Fred Thompson, the Actor turned Politician



Fred Thompson, the actor turned politician, recounted the harrowing story of John McCain’s captivity as a Vietnam prisoner of war to tout the presidential candidate at the Republican National Convention and criticized Democrat Barack Obama’s support for abortion rights.
“Now, being a POW certainly doesn’t qualify anyone to be president,” Thompson said Tuesday as images of McCain flashed behind him on a giant screen. “But it does reveal character.”
Thompson went into excruciating detail describing McCain’s 5 1/2 years in captivity in a Hanoi prison, describing how the Arizona senator’s captors cracked his ribs and broke his teeth off at the gums. He also described how McCain refused to go home when his captors offered to release him for propaganda purposes.
“We hear a lot of talk about hope these days,” Thompson said, a clear reference to one of Obama’s campaign themes. “John McCain knows about hope. That’s all he had.”
Fred Thomson also used his speech to denounce Obama for declining to say when human life begins, although Thompson’s own record on abortion is mixed.
“We need a president who doesn’t think that the protection of the unborn or a newly born baby is above his pay grade,” Thompson said.

The comment was a clear reference to an answer that Obama gave at a forum at California’s Saddleback Church sponsored by the popular evangelical pastor Rick Warren. On a question referring to the number of abortions in the country, Warren asked Obama at what point he believed babies had human rights.
“Well, you know, I think that whether you’re looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity, you know, is above my pay grade,” the Illinois senator replied.

In just two days, the number of U.S. Internet searches for “Sarah Palin” reached a peak greater than any other political personality in the last three years.
