Are you devoid of objective thinking? She gets on the stump everyday telling blatant lies and people are cheering like crazy. Especially on earmarks! I am so tired of hearing her lie with that stupid line about the bridge to no where “thanks but no thanks” she’s smiling and having a good time, lying, lying, lying! She hired lobbyists to ensure she got earmarks for her state and supported that bridge among other things. Yet she has the audacity to continue with the BS and talk about Obama.
The scary thing is neither of them have anything to offer so they keep with the “cute” lines, lies, and stump speeches and their supporters keep cheering as if they live in a vacuum.
They haven’t offered one policy or solution so they keep talking about how good Americans they are!
Just get it out already don’t vote for the other guy, wink, wink,!
I hope Americans aren’t this stupid again. McCain supported Bush 100% of the time in 2008, 95% in 2007, and 90% overall as he proudly admitted.
So they don’t mention Bush or Cheney, tell lies, and now they are the change agents!
Sarah Palin: You can’t believe a word that comes out her mouth. She’s an right-wing, religious extremist, who believes in creationism, doesn’t believe in climate change, is against women’s rights, and calls Iraq a mission from God, let’s not forget it’s her idea of God btw, you know the one that punishes the Jews for not converting to Christianity and when the Rapture comes all the good ole white Christians will live in Alaska while all the non-Christians will burn in hell!
Give me a break!
Just some of the lies the GOP keeps telling, Thanks to FactCheck.org for some of the info:
- Lieberman said Obama hadn’t “reached across party lines” to accomplish “anything significant,” though Obama has teamed with GOP Sens. Tom Coburn and Richard Lugar to pass laws enhancing government transparency and curtailing the proliferation of nuclear and conventional weapons.
- Thompson repeated misleading claims about Obama’s tax program, saying it would bring “one of the largest tax increases in American history.” But as increases go, Obama’s package is hardly a history-maker. It would raise taxes for families with incomes above $250,000. Most people would see a cut.
- Lieberman also accused Obama of “voting to cut off funding for our American troops on the battlefield.” But Obama’s only vote against a war-funding bill came after Bush vetoed a version of the bill Obama had supported – and McCain urged the veto.
- Palin may have said “Thanks, but no thanks” on the Bridge to Nowhere, though not until Congress had pretty much killed it already. But that was a sharp turnaround from the position she took during her gubernatorial campaign, and the town where she was mayor received lots of earmarks during her tenure.
- Palin’s accusation that Obama hasn’t authored “a single major law or even a reform” in the U.S. Senate or the Illinois Senate is simply not a fair assessment. Obama has helped push through major ethics reforms in both bodies, for example.
- Huckabee told conventioneers and TV viewers that Palin got more votes when she ran for mayor of Wasilla than Biden did running for president. Not even close. The tally: Biden, 79,754, despite withdrawing from the race after the Iowa caucuses. Palin, 909 in her 1999 race, 651 in 1996.
- McCain claimed that Obama’s health care plan would “force small businesses to cut jobs” and would put “a bureaucrat … between you and your doctor.” In fact, the plan exempts small businesses, and those who have insurance now could keep the coverage they have.
- McCain attacked Obama for voting for “corporate welfare” for oil companies. In fact, the bill Obama voted for raised taxes on oil companies by $300 million over 11 years while providing $5.8 billion in subsidies for renewable energy, energy efficiency and alternative fuels.
- McCain said oil imports send “$700 billion a year to countries that don’t like us very much.” But the U.S. is on track to import a total of only $536 billion worth of oil at current prices, and close to a third of that comes from Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom.
- He promised to increase use of “wind, tide [and] solar” energy, though his actual energy plan contains no new money for renewable energy. He has said elsewhere that renewable sources won’t produce as much as people think.
- He called for “reducing government spending and getting rid of failed programs,” but as in the past failed to cite a single program that he would eliminate or reduce.
- He said Obama would “close” markets to trade. In fact, Obama, though he once said he wanted to “renegotiate” the North American Free Trade Agreement, now says he simply wants to try to strengthen environmental and labor provisions in it.
- McCain say he always supported the “surge” that is a lie. He was on Meet the Press last year saying he was very concerned.
- Palin says she sold the jet on Ebay, that is a lie. Actually, it didn’t sell and it went to a private buyer at a net loss, but on the stump they say she sold it on Ebay for a profit.
- Palin says she’s against earmarks, that is a lie. She used to come to DC to lobby for millions of dollars in earmarks.
- Palin said she was an executive in the PTA, even that is a lie. Is that even worth lying?
I’m increasingly convinced and it is really sad, that the only reason Republicans are so exited about this ticket is because they can get away with not being exposed for the real reason they don’t support Obama by using Palin as a tool to represent “change”. That’s all she is in the end, a puppet for McCain and the GOP to use to make him look good and for them to cover all the damage they did to this country. By distracting us with her, they want to sneak into the White House yet again. I promise, if they get away with this, I will leave this nation and shut down this blog.
