The Obama Response by Emerald City Elephant

Naturally, the Obama camp came out swinging against Palin:

Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency.  Governor Palin shares John McCain’s commitment to overturning Roe v. Wade, the agenda of Big Oil and continuing George Bush’s failed economic policies — that’s not the change we need, it’s just more of the same.

Besides the obvious omission of her governorship, and the ridiculous charge that she represents more of the same, and the jaw-dropping charge from Barack Obama that she lacks experience, its funny that the Obama camp claimed McCain, “put the former mayor… a heartbeat away from the presidency.” Are they conceding they’ve already lost?

A “heartbeat away from the presidency” is being used as an attack against McCain’s age. If he dies, she fills in. Tacky if you ask me, but that’s the Nobama way. But I like your take on it, better..

“Are they conceding they’ve already lost?”…lol.

Yes, I think the Obama campaign runs a great risk of turning off elderly voters (the largest voting block) with all their ageism.

It is not the Dems fault that the GOP is fueling the fire. Bummer that her teen daughter is pregnant… So much for abstinence only

“She is Christian and pro-life, but also a supporter of birth control: she’s a member of Feminists For Life (FFL), an anti-abortion, pro-contraception organization.”…

Depends on who she is talking to, I guess…

“Palin said when running for governor in 2006 that she would support funding for abstinence-only education in schools, according to Eagle Forum Alaska, a conservative group that sent a questionnaire asking gubernatorial candidates their views on a range of issues.”
