More double standards about Gov Palin given money for clothes
and no one cares who Obama has had for years as his left wing radical
friends that hate America?
Why is it that Obama has tried to pass himself off as one person, when clearly he has another side to him?
Why is that?

Obama has been bashed for a long time now regarding his "friends" as you so put it. It is Palin's turn. This shall pass.

Neither one are big deals at all. But when the Republicans call Obama elitist and make big deals out of every little thing, they should expect the same for McCain and Palin. It's just tit for tat.

McCain is the one who claims to be against un-necessary spending. 150k for clothes in un-necessary. That's the story.

And Obama's associations have been investigated and discussed ad nauseaum. Nothing has come of it.

But when our US economy is crashing, people are losing their homes, jobs are being lost, people's retirement accounts are tanking and all of our futures are at risk, hearing that $150K was spent at the highest end department stores in this country so Palin and her family can "look nice" it's pretty pathetic.

Lets talk about Sarah Palin's anti-American friends in the radical Alaskan succesionist group. Why would she even speak before a group that says horrible things about our country.

The leader of the group, who was murdered BTW said this and worse.

"I'm an Alaskan, not an American. I've got no use for America or her damned institutions."

"The fires of hell are frozen glaciers compared to my hatred for the American government. And I won't be buried under their damn flag. I'll be buried in Dawson. And when Alaska is an independent nation they can bring my bones home."


Palin spoke to this group knowing these things were said. On top of that she attended numerous events in this group. Her husband was a member of this group for years. So spare me the stories about Obama's so called friends. You talk about left extreme....Sarah and her friends are the far right extreme.

Calling Obama's friends "his left wing radical friends that hate America" is a baseless statement. Take a look at how many of Nixon's Nazis went on to criminal convictions. Most radicals of the time cared deeply for America and despised what people like Nixon were doing to it. While I don't condone some of their actions, saying they hate(d) America is baseless blather.

The McCain campaign is being hypocritical, saying one thing and doing another is substantive, while Senator Obama being attacked for only having been acquainted with people who offend the mainstream is not!

Point is that Senator Obama is not running around being hypocritical or lying, he is being himself and being honest. Even O'Reilly has given him respect for that twice now!

By doing this many media outlets and journalist are thinking they are smart in the short term, but in the long term they will loose out on advertisement deals, since many people like you and me are not watching these programs any more and aren't reading these magazines any more....all short term stupid business decisions!!!
