    Default Sarah Palin criticizes Barack Obama again in solo appearance

    Palin criticizes Obama again in solo appearance
    Associated Press
    Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin on Thursday took an immediate swipe at Democratic nominee Barack Obama in her first solo campaign appearance since joining the GOP ticket. The Alaska governor also issued a fund-raising appeal that blamed the Democratic presidential ticket for spreading "misinformation and flat-out lies" about her family and her.
    While the Obama campaign has raised questions about Palin's qualifications, Obama himself has said that her family should be off-limits.
    Palin met with Republican governors Thursday and said afterward that leading a state means you have to make decisions and not just vote "present."
    "We don't have a 'present' button as governor — we are expected to lead, we are expected to take action and not just vote 'present,'" said Palin, who is in her first term as Alaska's governor. "So there's a big difference, of course, between the executive and legislative branches and our experience."
    Palin was referring to Obama's days in the Illinois Senate, when he voted "present" dozens of times among the thousands of votes he cast in his eight years there. The move is common among Illinois lawmakers, but has become a favorite Republican complaint about Obama.
    The vice presidential candidate met with the governors on the morning after her speech to the Republican National Convention. In the days since her selection as John McCain's running mate was announced, questions have been raised about the 44-year-old governor's qualifications and experience, and it was revealed that her unmarried 17-year-old daughter is pregnant.
    In a fundraising letter issued Thursday, she wrote that "the Obama-Biden Democrats have been vicious in their attacks directed toward me, my family and John McCain. The misinformation and flat-out lies must be corrected."
    Palin said Thursday that she has "a big job cut out in front of me running for vice president."
    "I intend to give this campaign all that I have to give," she said. "And I look forward to these 60-plus days on the trail. My family looks forward to this, we're up for it, we're excited about it."
    She did not take questions from reporters.

    I like how she can keep ripping Obama, but won't take any questions from the media on her own record and set the record straight on the 'flat out lies.'

    Wow, Obama has done nothing notable in his life. Graduating from Columbia and Harvard Law (he was the fucking President of Harvard Law Review) is notable in its own right. He goes and contributes to his community by organizing voting drives. He has the intellectual chops and pedigree to teach Con Law at the University of fucking Chicago for 12 years. That is nothing notable either.

    His rapid ascent into politics and the slaying of the Clinton Machine is not notable either. Sheesh. Obama's life is filled with notable achievements. I want the POTUS not to be so every day schmoe tha Joe Sixpack can relate to but rather someone who is exceptional. Obama has that pedigree.

    I guess some find a graduate of a 4th rate cow college who wanted to be a sportscaster, a former beauty pageant contestant, and mayor of a small town in Alaska to be more notable. It is laughable to even compare the educational background and experience of Obama/Biden to the Hockey Mom.

    Um, Obama hasn't said a blessed thing about her family.

    He should say that flat out, and then accuse her of lying about it.

    Stupid lying cunt.

    WHY does she keep avoiding any questions? Why isn't she being called out for this? Its offensive.

    What is fueling the accusations that the dems are attacking her family? The media is shining a spotlight on her situations, not the dems.

    She has no right to complain because she is under a microscope. She is applying for a job and as voting citizens, we all have the right to do a background check.

    I truly do not like this woman at all. She is the embodiment of everything women have fought to put behind them.

    Ironically, this is what she said in an interview about her college degree:
    In a recent interview with the school's alumni magazine, before her selection to run on the GOP ticket, she explained that her curiosity and love of writing made journalism a natural choice.
    "I was always asking everyone the questions, and I still am today," Palin told the magazine.

    Although my favorite line was about her complaining about the scrutiny and he said 'I've been through this 19 months, she's been through it, what, four days?'

    Yeah- and it shows the repubs want him to respond to her like she is important. But he is going against McCain - shes the spare potential head of state.

    By the way the rightwing nutsos are already preying for McCain's death-

    Its because they keep feeding her sound bytes for her to recite, but know she's not capable of actually thinking on her feet and answering the hard questions. The way they are handling her with kid gloves is sickening, truly. I hope more people out there aren't falling for the act.

    Well if they did - they dont have much brain cells to begin with. I think amoebas have more thinking power than some of the people who cant see through this crap.
