Frames the Debate:As a small town

union, Sarah Palin stepped to the RNC Convention podium
Wednesday night an
hit it out of the park. Even the left-wing press was punched back on its
heels by the home run début performance of the "pit bull in lipstick”

Elitism vs. Americanism

democrats have something to worry about!” He’s right for a
The clock is ticking on
Obama’s fifteen minutes of manufactured fame and it’s a little
fire-breathing hockey mom from the frozen tundra who is likely to snuff
out his political ambitions in short order.
Palin’s speech was much
more than an international introduction to McCain’s surprise running
mate. The speech properly framed the debate of the 2008 election.
Palin didn’t just
launch a full scale frontal attack on the Obama-Biden ticket; she had
stolen the right to frame the entire debate from the left-wing press who
had been framing election debates for far too long. Yes, the Obama camp
is in trouble against the McCain – Palin ticket. But so is the
lamestream press who has been carrying their water up to this point.
The left-wing press
attack dogs started attacking Friday morning and they worked around the
clock through the holiday weekend, throwing everything but the kitchen
sink at Palin and her family in an effort to run her off or at a
minimum, make her shaky by her Wednesday night début.
None of it worked...She
was not the least shaken and Republicans from all factions of the big
tent came running to her defense. The left-wing press had stepped into
the land mine set for them by McCain. The Obama-press took aim at Palin,
but the moose hunting barracuda quickly turned the public sights
on the left-wing press and their left-wing ticket. In the end, the press
did something McCain himself had not been able to do...They united the
The standard leftist
character assassination strategy had finally backfired and by Thursday
morning, even Democrats and some members of the press itself were
swooning over Sarah Palin.
A New Conservative
Movement is Born
After months on the
campaign trail without bringing his party base back into the fold,
McCain was convinced that he had to choose a running mate to his
ideological right if we wanted his party to support his run for the
Moving outside of the
Washington Elitist Network was a stroke of genius. Finding Sarah Palin
was a gift from above! People don’t only see her as a great pick for VP,
helping to move McCain back to the ideological foundation of the
Republican Party; they already see her as potentially a great first
A new age of
conservatism has been born. Not really in the starchy tradition of old,
but more in the new direction of plain good old fashioned fundamental
Americanism. God, Country, Family, good ethical governance,
individual freedom and liberty with responsibility. These are wholly
American concepts, not just Republican ideals.
Palin Sets the Pace
Unlike the elitists who
have never served in uniform but tell voters how much they know about
securing a nation or winning a war, McCain has spent a lifetime on the
front lines and Palin is Commander-in-Chief of her states National
Guard, and mother of a soldier...
I'm just one of many moms who will say an extra prayer each night for
our sons and daughters going into harm's way. Our son Track is 19, and
one week from tomorrow, September 11th, he'll deploy to Iraq with the
Army infantry in the service of his country. My nephew Casey (sp) also
enlisted and serves on a carrier in the Persian Gulf. My family is so
proud of both of them, and of all the fine men and women serving the
country in uniform.
Those who mistakenly
think NYC and LA represent average American life and Middle American
attitudes just met someone from Middle American values in Sarah Palin.
"You know, from the
inside, no family ever seems typical, and that's how it is with us. Our
family has the same ups and downs as any other, the same challenges and
the same joys, sometimes even the greatest joys bring challenge.”
(husband) is a story
all by himself. He's a lifelong commercial fisherman and a production
operator in the oil fields of Alaska's North Slope, and a proud member
of the Untied Steelworkers Union.”
"My mom and dad both
worked at the elementary school in our small town, and among the many
things I owe them is a simple lesson that I've learned: that this is
America, and every woman can walk through every door of opportunity.”
Unlike the limousine
liberals she is running against, Palin is very much the average
American. You don’t have to ask if she can identify with average voters,
she is an average voter.
However, like her
running mate John McCain, she is an average American who has chosen to
do extraordinary things with her life.
The REAL Debate
"Americans expect us
to go to Washington for the right reason, and not just to mingle with
the right people. Politics isn't just a game of clashing parties and
American is fed up with inside the beltway corruption and partisan
"Now, I've noticed a
pattern with our opponent, and maybe you have too. We've all heard his
dramatic speeches before devoted followers, and there is much to like
and admire about our opponent. But listening to him speak, it's easy to
forget that this is a man who has authored two memoirs but not a single
major law or even a reform, not even in the state senate.”
there are some candidates who use change to promote their careers. And
then there are those, like John McCain, who use their careers to promote
This Palin statement is
the central point of the debate between the anti-American left and the
Politicians have to
allow that even the most anti-American socialist flag-burner is still an
American. But I’m not running for office, so I am free to state the
truth that there is nothing American about the Democratic Socialism
being crammed down the throats of those who seek self-interest and
another trip to the public trough and those expected to pick up the tab.
Obama – Biden represent
more of the same old "pick-pocket politics” of the past. McCain –
Palin represent the concept of individual freedom and liberty as
designed by our nation’s founders. That’s the primary difference between
the two tickets. One is American, the other wholly anti-American.
After leftists have
spent years biting the hands that feed them, attacking productive
Americans as if their personal productivity was some kind of assault
upon the less productive, it’s high time someone slapped them away from
the trough and taught them some manners.
there is the idealism of high- flown speechmaking in which crowds are
stirringly summoned to support great things, and then there is the
idealism of those leaders, like John McCain, who actually do great
Nobody in America has
personally sacrificed more than John McCain to earn the right to become
Commander-in-Chief. That alone is not enough to make him
The people really do
want change. They want government reform! But they can only get
it from leaders who have a record of forcing change. They won’t ever get
change from "leaders” who have never "led” anything.
They won’t get change
from a chief executive who has never done anything in the past, and
couldn’t even decide YES or NO on 130 congressional votes. It wasn’t a
multiple choice question. He could have closed his eyes and guessed. He
would have had a 50/50 chance of being right had he just had the courage
to answer the question.
In a decision by
committee body like congress, one can hide from the responsibility to
make tough choices. But there is no place to hide in the Oval Office!
Good or bad, right or wrong, a decision must be made. Obama has proven
repeatedly throughout his career, that he lacks the courage to take a
stand on tough choices.
Reform Will Only
Come from Proven Reformers
Leadership is not just
about making the right decisions. It’s about having the backbone to make
the decision, then commit to that decision and make it right. Obama has
no such backbone and his record demonstrates that beyond debate. His
choice of Joe Biden as a VP running mate demonstrates this reality.
No guts, no glory for
Obama! The candidate of "change” chose a tired old corrupt backstabbing
DC partisan to prop up his otherwise blank résumé for office. When faced
with a chance to choose courageous change, he instead defaulted
backwards to something he saw as "safe.”
Sarah Palin and John
McCain have made tough choice after tough choice throughout their
careers and learned how to stick when the going gets even tougher.
Democrats Are in
Palin has defined the
debate. She has pushed Obama and Biden into the corner they built for
themselves and in the course of doing that, she has given the left-wing
press enough rope to hang themselves...
Those Americans who
never fail to cast their vote on the basis of free gifts from the public
trough would vote for Ronald McDonald if they had to and they will vote
for Obama no matter what.
But the rest of America
just got a close up look at what a real pro-American leader looks like.
Obama is thanking his lucky stars that Joe Biden will have to face Palin
in the debates.
Once Obama and Biden
finished cleaning out their britches last night, they fired up the
attack machine. But it won’t work this time around.
The real differences
between the anti-American left represented by Obama-Biden and the
pro-American right represented by two obvious members of the no-nonsense
average American community is nothing short of astounding.
Even the left-wing
press is in trouble this time around...It’s fast becoming obvious that
without the full support of the leftist press, Obama would not even be
in this race. He is a manufactured media creation and the press is
scrambling to prop him up until November.
But you too can play an
important part in cleaning up America by joining the
Media Research Center effort to STOP the left-wing media from
seating the most under-qualified individual to ever seek the Oval
Office. All it requires is honest unbiased reporting. But the press will
only change if forced to change!
Change is a comin’!
And not a moment too soon!
