FW: Sarah Palin VS Barack Obama

I received the following from a good friend of mine whom I used to work
with.  He hit this bulls-eye right in the middle of it.  He has also earned
my deepest respect for his great service to this wonderful country that we
call ours.  


Do not get me wrong.  I would never even dream of voting for Nobama
(misspelled intentionally) but I also have had some great hesitations and
concerns over McCain as I do consider him somewhat of a Republicrat or a
RINO (Republican In Name Only.)  With his selection of Sarah Palin as his
running mate, you can bet your bottom dollar that it took quite a bit (not
all) of the hesitation away from me.  She is the most Reagonesque person
being considered for ANY office that I know.  Ronald Reagan was the best
President that served since I have been alive and probably will be my
favorite to my grave.


I also feel as if the Democratic Convention this last week was a sheer
example of their symbolism over substance hogwash that they are so good at.
With the money that they socked into Invesco Field alone, makes one wonder
how much of that money would have been better suited for the needy that they
care *so deeply* for.  I truly hope that the Republican Convention is one of
modesty.  We do not need Greek pillars nor flash and flare (i.e. smoke and
mirrors) to get our point across.


Thank you, Charles for sharing this, again for being an awesome friend and
again for your dedicated service to our country.  God Bless You!

How many of you were as shocked as I was to hear the news that McCain chose
Governor Sarah Palin as the next Vice President of the United States of
America.   Palin, an American by birth, by conviction and by every action,
has created a hurricane force storm in the obamma camp.   Immediately after
the announcement by McCain, obamma immediately went on the defensive and
started the smear tactics he is so fond of using against everyone who
opposes him.   Obamma became understandably upset over McCain's choice,
though obamma's constant vehement attacks only prove the type of
questionable character obamma is born of and exhibits not only in public but
in his private life as well.   His open associations with criminal elements,
his friendships with anti-Americans, his constant avoidance of questions
that could force him to expose his and his wife's personal contempt for
America, questionable lifestyle and agenda, and the total disrespect he
actually has for Americas in general.

Obamma doesn't have an ounce of experience to be the president and leader of
the United States.  His experience is only plagiarizing the accomplishments
of others.   He has never been leader of anything important, in fact his
senate seat is that of a junior senator, which means he is basically a
senator in training, immature in his thinking, his directions and actions.
He has NO leadership ability, he is a smooth talker with a vocabulary that
makes him sound like he swallowed a dictionary and thesaurus.  When people
hear him talk they are impressed with his verbiage and glamorous talk, but
all his talk and big words only proves that he knows how to hide his
ignorance with BS, "if you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them
with bull sh*t".  This is the typical Obamma trade mark.

I think it's funny, that the Republican Vice-Presidential candidate has more
legislative experience, more executive leadership experience, more
commitment to the USA and the people, than Obamma and Biden combined have or
could ever hope for.   Would you want in the highest office in the country
someone who had a big mouth and spoke eloquently without ever addressing the
actual issues and when they speak gets off on their own self and manipulated
the masses through empty words and  who is stuck on themselves, who has
never even served as a mayor, councilman, Governor of anything, not even
something as trivial as being a boy scout leader?  Or would you rather have
someone in office who HAS served the people as a leader and has a proven
track record of actual major political accomplishments that benefit everyone
under their charge, who has given back to the people money that was a result
of crooked politicians padding their own pockets, and exposed political
corruption and brought those responsible into the light and made them pay
monetarily and criminally for their acts against those who had their trust
violated?   Maybe obamma will finally have the shroud of secrecy torn from
him and his true character exposed, putting him in a position to account for
his actions.  Is that why he is so pissed and terrified at McCain's choice?
I hope so!

My Vote is definitely for Palin/McCain (not to mention she likes Van Halen
which means she is hard core)
