I've watched the Dem Convention with a watchful eye and a pit in my stomach. I didn't appreciate the rock and roll fanfare that the Dem's attempted to pass off as a political event, especially with the historic importance that last night held for us as a country.
I hate being talked-down to, I despise receiving information in a watered-down fashion, and that is exactly what the Dems delivered. Give me a break. What scares me is the many, many voters in this country that will vote for Obama because of his "cool" factor.
I went to bed praying that McCain would pick the right person, and hopefully, that it wouldn't be Romney. He certainly came through today!
Sarah Palin is a fantastic choice.
Here is a true woman! Mom to 5 beautiful children. A working mom working in a man's world. Not afraid to stand up for what is right, especially for the unborn. My definition of a true woman, the kind of woman that makes "feminists" cringe.
And Obama's first official response?
"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."
Are you kidding me? NObama had the chance to show us he was all about change and he chose the same ol' same ol'. Biden is about as same ol' as any politician can be.
And trying to scare us with the "heartbeat away from the presidency" garbage? How about Nobama's one vote away from the presidency? How is it that his inexperience is a good thing because it is an opportunity for change, but hers is a liability?
Was this a political move on McCain's part? Of course it was. Just as choosing Biden was on Obama's. It was a very smart one. A well-thought out one.
I am finally excited about this election and even more excited to cast my vote in November.
