Two Very Different
multiracial candidate on one ticket and a female on the other, no matter
what happens this November, history will be made in this election cycle.
But these two tickets could not be any more different than they are -
and as a result, the two campaign strategies are equally different.
September 2, 2008
The only similarity
found between the McCain-Palin ticket and the Obama-Biden ticket is the
fact that both offer something old and something new, someone with
experience and someone fresh. That’s where the similarities end...
experience is found at the top of the ticket in long time Senate
maverick John McCain. At 72 years old with everything from truly heroic
war service, POW experience, decades of bucking the system and even his
party on his résumé, there is very little John McCain hasn’t seen or
done. He’s a time tested political figure to be reckoned with and he has
been deeply admired by both friend and foe for years.
is an inside the system reformer who has bucked the system and his own
party so many times that he has earned the title of maverick on
Capitol Hill. Most would agree that McCain-Feingold was a horrible
outcome to a grand idea. Few Americans believe that campaign finance is
an honest above board ethical system and most believe it needs to be
cleaned up. But Washington compromise often makes crap out of caviar by
the time a good idea becomes bad law via corrupt partisan compromise.
McCain was right.
Campaign finance is corrupt and in need of reform. But he was wrong to
think he could get there by compromising with the left, whose entire
political existence depends upon their ability to attract funny money.
McCain didn’t need to
draft experience in a running mate, because few people in America have a
political résumé as deep and wide in terms of experience. In his true
maverick form, McCain instead chose a running mate far from the
Washington elitist good ole boys club, a tough but classy government
ethics reformer with the executive experience he lacks.
Contrary to the picture
Democrats will desperately try to paint, Sarah Palin is not just some
sweet shrinking violet hockey mom, easy on the eye, who belongs in an
apron. Her leftist opponents will tell you that she’s a nonentity, a
former mayor of a "small town” and governor of a "small state”
far from mainstream America. She doesn’t count...
In short, they will
imply that governing a small town or a small state doesn’t
count as real executive experience. They must make this claim since
neither Obama nor Biden has an ounce of executive experience in any city
or state. Their overt elitist disdain for small town America will
be glaringly obvious in their personal attacks on Palin.
Yet America is made up
of small towns and small states often ignored as
insignificant by Washington elitists like Obama and Biden - and those
who have mis-underestimated Palin in the past, have come to know
the meaning of the phrase "moose hunting barracuda...”
Alaska, our 49th state, is actually our largest state,
approximately 2.3 times the size of Texas. It presents special
challenges that few people have the backbone to brave, much less govern.
Palin has accomplished more in Alaska than any of the men who preceded
In fact, Palin has
managed a career that few men, especially Washington type limousine
liberals, could ever manage. Palin is a proud mother of five
beautiful children, the youngest being only months old and the oldest, a
proud volunteer member of the U.S. Army headed for Iraq. Yet with
sixteen years of executive experience while raising a family, she has
managed to become America’s most popular government executive. Show me
one man who has accomplished so much? - Obama? - Biden? You must be
Wall Street Journal reports, "Sarah Palin's reform résumé would
be remarkable in any political career. She entered politics at 28,
winning a seat on the Wasilla city council as an opponent of tax
increases. After she defeated Wasilla's three-term incumbent mayor four
years later, she swept the mayor's cronies out of the bureaucracy.”
In 2003, Alaska
Governor Frank Murkowski, who had already served as junior U.S. Senator
from Alaska for 22 years, appointed her to the state's Oil and Gas
Shortly after joining
the oil and gas commission, Mrs. Palin commenced an ethics probe of the
state's Republican Party chairman, Randy Ruedrich, involving conflicts
of interest with oil companies, which resulted in a $12,000 fine for her
She crossed party lines
again in 2004 to join a Democratic representative's ethics complaint
over an international trade deal against the Republican Attorney General
Gregg Renkes, who had ties to the Murkowski machine. Mr. Renkes
As Governor, Palin sold
the governors jet, attacked systemic corruption on both sides of the
aisle, challenged Big Oil, rejected wasteful good ole boy federal funds
for a bridge to nowhere and sued Washington DC for its insane polar bear
blockade on domestic energy production in ANWR. Oh, and she managed to
reduce spending and taxes every step of the way...
Palin's credentials as
a tough agent of reform far exceed that of Barack Obama or Joe Biden. In
fact, Obama and Biden represent the exact opposite of change.
She’s no partisan shrinking violet. She’s the real deal.
▪ The McCain/Palin
Ticket – Maverick government reform experience, Top and Bottom
▪ The McCain/Palin
Vision – Ethical government, Individual freedom and personal liberty
▪ The McCain/Palin
Strategy – Substance, Real Americans with a record of Government Reform
Then, the other
The Obama – Biden
ticket represents the exact opposite of everything McCain-Palin
Experience is at the
bottom of the Obama – Biden ticket. Joe Biden has been part of the
partisan Washington good ole boy network for decades and nothing
demonstrates what that means better than his recent 180 degree reversal
concerning his running mate. A review of Biden’s senate record will
confirm that few in Washington are more blindly partisan or politically
opportunistic than Joe Biden.
Only weeks ago, Biden
was one of Barack Obama’s staunchest critics, pointing out the obvious
fact that there is nothing in Obama’s past that suggests he is in any
way qualified to be leader of the free world. Biden was right then...but
the intoxicating lure of vice presidential power, the prospect of being
one breath away from the most powerful position on earth, instantly
changed Biden’s opinion of Obama.
Obama was on the job as
a freshman Senator for less than 90 days when he was convinced by party
elites that he was ready to lead the free world. You can’t even move
from kindergarten to first grade in 90 days...even if you’re a child
Socialist establishment currently running the DNC needed a "savior” for
their failed party, which regained control of congress in 2006 only to
reduce congress to the lowest approval ratings in U.S. history by 2008.
Hillary Clinton was
assumed to be a "sure thing” heading towards the 2008 election cycle
with President Bush’s approval rating hovering around 30%. DNC
leadership was smart enough to know that anyone named Clinton was
unlikely to survive all the skeletons in the closet come November and no
matter what Democrat primary voters thought, party elites were going to
force a new "Messiah” into the forefront.
Clinton was leading the nomination process and was sure to emerge
from Florida and Michigan the clear victor, which technically speaking
she did by almost 500,000 votes. But Florida and Michigan voters would
not be counted, and without those votes Clinton would be bumped from
front-runner to has-been bringing an official end to the
Clinton era before Hillary could realize her dream of being the first
female executive in the nation’s history.
Obama is only a media
creation, a mythical "Messiah” hand picked by party elites, in part for
his extraordinary lack of experience, as little more than a cartoon
caricature. Other than his time as a "community
organizer” in the tradition of the communist author of "Rules
for Radicals” and Obama mentor,
Saul Alinsky, his résumé is completely blank.
But this is exactly
what DNC leadership was looking for, an empty suit with a blank résumé,
a Hollywood grin with a communist bent that offered at least the
appearance of "hope and change” for those voters motivated by
self-interests. Radical rebel rousing is the only experience
Obama needed and it’s the only experience he has.
As nothing more than a
pliable political caricature, Obama spent eight years in the Illinois
congress voting "present” much of the time. A "present” vote is a very
old political ploy used by those who plan to seek higher office. It’s a
means of shirking the duties they are currently obligated to, in order
to hide from future scrutiny over past voting records.
When Obama fell into
national office by defeating Democrat and Republican opponents, both of
whom were entangled in Illinois scandals at the time, he waltzed into
Washington DC by default and continued the practice of voting "present”
on issues that might later come back to haunt him in a future campaign.
Obama was not planning
on running for the office of Commander-in-Chief in 2008, until
Democratic Socialist elites drafted him to replace the controversial
Hillary Clinton, who was bound to become the party nominee absent a new
Obama had no choice but
to select an inside the beltway partisan hack as a running mate. Without
Biden, Obama was doomed as a completely unqualified caricature. Biden’s
experience as a career Washington partisan fills some of the most
obvious voids in Obama’s experience.
strategy is one of character assassination. They will attempt to paint
McCain an "inside the beltway partisan hack” even though no member of
congress has broken ranks with his party more often, or at more expense
They will try to paint
Palin as an inexperienced Alaskan shrinking violet who belongs in an
apron, even though she is the only one of the four candidates with
actual executive experience, not to mention an open disdain for good ole
boy corruption and a record of attacking that corruption no matter in
which party she finds it in.
▪ The Obama/Biden
Ticket – An empty caricature & a two-faced backstabbing partisan of old
▪ The Obama/Biden
Vision – Democratic Socialism & more power for the too powerful
▪ The Obama/Biden
Strategy – Character assassinations, résumé cover-ups, voter fraud and
press corps misdirection
At the end of the day,
the average American voter will come to see the Obama-Biden ticket for
what it really is...Contrary to its campaign slogan, it is Obama and
Biden who represent more of the same old Washington corruption and
backstabbing politics and McCain and Palin who represent the kind of
government reform that most Americans can believe in.
For real Americans,
those who do not look at their federal government as a personal nanny
and cast their votes on the basis of their next feeding from the public
trough, this election is all about real change, not left wingnut
No matter what happens
in November, America will either seat the first multiracial president or
the first female vice president and history will be made either way.
This allows voters to
look beyond the desire to simply "make history” and begin to focus
attention on what matters most, our future as a nation.
Over the next sixty
days voters will learn what both of these tickets stand for and
what they stand against. If I’m right, that America still has more
Americans in search of freedom than anti-American leftists blindly in
search of free stuff, then McCain and Palin will pull off the upset of
the century against the press corps "Messiah.”
The press will continue
to carry water for the Democratic Socialist movement, just as it has for
the last several elections. If it were up to them, we wouldn’t even
bother to hold an election at all. We’d just proceed with the anointment
of their chosen one, Barockstar Obama.
But it isn’t up to the
press, or Hollyweird, or Democratic Socialists running roughshod over
Democrat voters, or even socialist billionaires like George Soros and
Peter Lewis who wasted millions trying to seat John Kerry in 2004,
against the will of American voters. They will waste millions trying to
seat Obama too, - however...
In the end, it is up
to American voters.
We are the government in this country and contrary to
the socialist "savior” rhetoric spewing from today’s DNC; we will do the
hiring and firing around these parts...international lefties can waste
all the money the want trying to change this reality.
Ain’t it funny how the
party with a 10% approval rating in congress chose to run two senate
hacks in the name of change! - Almost as funny as "the party
of the little guy” consistently attacking or disenfranchising
"the little guy.”
What goes around comes
around, even for Washington elitists. Obama and Biden are about to learn
that the average small town gun-toting God fearing voter is not
as ignorant as they think...They are also about to learn that small
town Sarah Palin has built her political career upon the foundation
of putting career partisan bureaucrats like Biden and Obama on the
It couldn’t happen to a
more deserving bunch of pathetic leftwing losers! I took great care to
lay this out in simple terms when I could have just said, "Its two
heroic American pilots vs. two partisan backstabbing lawyers...” I
hope you appreciate my kinder-gentler approach.
Americans, who are not
selfishly in search of a nanny bearing free gifts, know exactly what
this election is all about...
This video says it all...I hope you have the courage to watch it!
Obama’s fifteen minutes
are about up! Obama/Biden predicted a 15 point convention bounce.
But that Hollywood
convention bounce peaked out at only 8 points and hours later, that 8
point bounce was cut to only 3 points in national poll averages, with
the McCain/Palin convention speeches yet to come.
individual right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness,
(endowed by our Creator) vs. a secular socialist right of
government elitists to define and redistribute happiness to some at the
expense of others, is what this election is all about. It’s what every
election is about these days and congressional races are just as
important as the presidential race as a result. Maybe more...
The debate should begin
right here...with Obama’s respect for the unalienable right to Life!
Watch this video and tell me Obama is ready to lead the free
world! May God forbid!
