Reformed Chicks Blabbing

I just got done watching the news conference and I was blown away. She lives up to her hype! She was brilliant, articulate, forceful, and made a very good case for McCain. She was so convincing that she convinced me to vote for McCain. I haven’t been this excited about the election since Thompson announced his candidacy and look forward to blogging about her in the months to come. And I’m not the only one, my dad and husband have decided to vote for McCain as well. He really pushed us off the fence with this choice and I know that the pro-life community is ecstatic with this choice.The great thing about Palin is that she’s a reformer and compliments that aspect of the McCain candidacy. You could tell that he picked a candidate that complimented his policies, not someone who had to shore up his deficiencies the way that Obama had to with Biden helping him with his foreign policy credentials. Good going, McCain! The timing of this has pushed Obama out of our mind and got us talking about your campaign and your choice.BTW, it’s about time we had a woman running on the Republican side and I hope she’s able to make history and be the first VP elected (and eventually president — wouldn’t that be funny, the Republicans are first a woman president 🙂As to her lack of foreign policy experience:

It is pretty audacious for the Obama campaign to say that Governor Palin is not qualified to be Vice President. She has a record of accomplishment that Senator Obama simply cannot match. Governor Palin has spent her time in office shaking up government in Alaska and actually achieving results — whether it’s taking on corruption, passing ethics reform or stopping wasteful spending and the ‘bridge to nowhere.’ Senator Obama has spent his time in office running for President.

But she brings much more experience to the table, out of all these guys, she’s actually lived in the real world like the rest of us. She brings executive experience and she brings experience with energy.Update: The Obama campaign’s second attempt at a statement was a lot more gracious:

“We send our congratulations to Governor Sarah Palin and her family on her designation as the republican nominee for Vice President. It is yet another encouraging sign that old barriers are falling in our politics. While we obviously have differences over how best to lead this country forward Governor Palin is an admirable person and will add a compelling new voice to this campaign,” said Senator Barack Obama and Senator Joe Biden

Updated again: Another example that the left doesn’t get it, from Rahm Emanuel:

“After trying to make experience the issue of this campaign, John McCain celebrated his 72nd birthday by appointing a former small town mayor and brand new governor as his vice presidential nominee. Is this really who the Republican Party wants to be one heartbeat away from the presidency? Given Sarah Palin’s lack of experience on every front and on nearly every issue, this vice presidential pick doesn’t show judgement: it shows political panic.”

Why do the Democrats think that we should listen to them when they speak about the lack of experience of our candidate? It didn’t bother them to nominate a guy with only two years of experience in the Senate, why should it bother them for us to nominate a woman who has executive experience? Sorry but the Democrats lost the experience card when they nominated Obama (who is the top of their ticket).Updated yet again: Here’s the video of her speech;
