NOW IT'S CLEAR

I was confused. Let me see if I have this straight.....

* If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you're "different."
* Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, a quintessential American story.

* If your name is Barack, you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.
* Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, you're a maverick.

* Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.
* Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you're well grounded.

* If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees, you don't have any real leadership experience.
* If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you're qualified to become the country's second highest ranking executive.

* If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 daughters, all within Protestant churches, you're not a real Christian.
* If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a Christian.

* If you teach teach children about sexual predators, you are irresponsible and eroding the fiber of society.
* If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state's school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you're very responsible.

* If your wife is a Harvard graduate laywer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to
raise a family, your family's values don't represent America's.
* If you're husband is nicknamed "First Dude", with at least one DWI conviction and no college education, who didn't register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that hates America and advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.

OK, much clearer now.

I'm sorry to join the fray again, but unbelievable that this person may become our vice president, or god forbid....
The Obama's seem to represent the best of "the american dream". The Palin's, ....

I agree Linda, there could be more courtesy, starting with me: Maurlin, thanks very much for your post, it made my day!

WOW, Smoke and Maurlin,


I am amazed at your Hatemongering.... What has this governor from Alaska done that makes you hate her soooo much... The hate you guys appear to have for her is sooo strong.

Why would you start a post with such hatemongering? (sound familiar?)

Oh, and Maurlin,

Of all the hate you tried to hang on those who don't support Obama, I haven't used any of them to justify my distaste for an Obama presidency. His policies, positions, and his history of associates... Now those are actual issues.....

WHo cares what his name is. WHo cares what his color is? His socialist policies concern me. NOt his name or color.

Yes, Tex, your rhetoric has been elevated, and was always much less bigoted than most of those who speak for the McCain campaign.

Thank you for that. Have a great day!

Than most? I think, overall, McCain has run a pretty benign campaign.

Unlike the MoveOn folks. You chastise the Conservatives for supposed hate speech..... But, not once have I heard any of you libs condemn the MoveOn hate speech.

Oops, sorry Tex. I did leave out an item that I'm now clear on after your post.

People who support Obama are idiots, crooks, children...AND hatemongers.
Individuals who point that out are benign and peaceloving.

never claimed my post on Obama supporters was not quite baiting.

Just pointing out that your post shows the supposed hatemongering goes both ways.

Tex: I asume your post about "hatemongering" is actually not related to any specific post before your's in this thread as no such "hatemongering" appears in these posts. Maurlin did post certain accurate statements, but I would hardly call that "hatemongering". I assume this relates to other posts on other threads that offended you.

Ran across this Move On ad. I think it's quite witty, actually:

This is also kind of funny (if the links work):

Hatemongers from the left have the same problem as always. Their blinders limit an accurate vision of anything. If the things said about Ms. Palin were said about the muslim guy, the mindless sheep would be outraged. Just goes to show that if you let enough uneducated people into the county that anyone except Hillary can be elected. Good Day and may God Bless.

Whatever......

I will post under another thread my reasons for giving up (like others who are DEARLY MISSED-like I'm sure I won't be, but that's ok).

And I sincerely thank all of you who have written me with support, even if you were "too chicken" to come out and say it.

I tried. No regrets. Just like before-Pre 9/11.

NEVER FORGET
NEVER AGAIN

Now we're comparing a potential President to a Vice President candidate?

Okaaaaayyy

Did you know?:

Question: What is America 's first line of missile interceptor defense that protects the entire United States ?

Answer: 49th Missile Defense Battalion of Alaska National Guard.


Question: What is the ONLY National Guard unit on permanent active duty?

Answer: 49th Missile Defense Battalion of Alaska National Guard


Question: Who is the Commander in Chief of the 49th Missile Defense Battalion of Alaska National Guard?

Answer: Governor Sarah Palin, Alaska


Question: What U.S. governor is routinely briefed on highly classified military issues, homeland security, and counter terrorism?

Answer: Governor Sarah Palin, Alaska


Question: What U.S. governor has a higher classified security rating than either candidate of the
Democrat Party?

Answer: Governor Sarah Palin, Alaska

According to the Washington Post, she first met with McCain in February, but nobody ever found out. This is a woman used to keeping secrets. She can be entrusted with our national security, because she already is.


Now you DO know!
