Just puttin’ it out there….
Governor Palin, there has been quite a bit of discussion about your perceived lack of foreign policy experience. And I want to give you your chance. If you could please respond to that criticism and give us specific skills that you think you have to bring to the White House to rebut that or mitigate that concern.
PALIN: Well, I think because I’m a Washington outsider that opponents are going to be looking for a whole lot of things that they can criticize and they can kind of try to beat the candidates here, who chose me as his partner, to kind of tear down the ticket. But as for foreign policy, you know, I think that I am prepared and I know that on January 20th, if we are so blessed as to be sworn into office as your president and vice president, certainly we’ll be ready. I’ll be ready. I have that confidence. I have that readiness.
“And if you want specifics with specific policy or countries, go ahead and you can ask me. You can even play stump the candidate if you want to. But we are ready to serve.”
In 2008, everybody and their momma is a pundit, so why not lil ol’ crazy Jamaican me 🙂
Why does Obama’s fund raising this last month means so much. Simple. Because people are voting with their pocketbook. Yes he had a bump from the nomination. That I am sure explained why half a million new people gave him money for the first time. Sure the argument maybe, yeah they’ll send him money but behind those curtains in November, what will America really do. Well look at it this way, this is the greatest transfer of wealth to a black man in the history of this country. This is not from a corporation like Sony to Will Smith. We are talking about money going from people struggling to buy gas and feed thier families to BarackObama.com
Regardless of how anyone feels about Barack Hussein Obama, he has struck a chord, he has tapped a vein, deep in America’s collective conscience and his campaign is mining it for all it’s worth.
