I know the governor of Alaska has been saying she's change, and that's great," Obama said. "She's a skillful politician. But, you know, when you've been taking all these earmarks when it's convenient, and then suddenly you're the champion anti-earmark person, that's not change. Come on! I mean, words mean something, you can't just make stuff up."

I'm just waiting for the sexism charges from the Palin camp.

Obama's 89 million in ear marks this year represents change?
In 2006 Illinois got a couple hundred million in ear marks, is this change?

They really don't need to mention sexism. It is already in the works. Five million women across America have pledged to make sure Palin is not treated like Clinton. Are you telling me you haven't heard about this yet. I was in another room and did not see the lady talking and don't know who she was, but it surely sounded interesting to me. I am telling you that Obama is toast. You don't make that many women mad. Do you think women don't remember that when the states were voting for Clinton, their votes didn't count; but when Obama was to be the one getting the votes, all of a sudden they counted again. He stole the primary. He doesn't deserve to be president.

Obama might better wait a minute since HE voted against special interest only 18% of the time, he seems to forget his record is all over the place,
the liar
