Exactly!

Her and McSame dance around questions because they are for the current administration's politics... They offer no change that is why they never discuss strategy or views on issues... They offer more of the same...that is about it...

Talk about a waffler. The one thing you had going for you is that no one could call you a waffler. Oh well, if it is good enough for Sarah, right?
I think you mixed up my post with the post I was responding to.

Rock solid on what? Spinning?
She had no answers on helping the economy.
She hasn't a clue.

If you didn't know what she stood for before this interview, you don't now.

I am tired of hearing about abortion, etc. The economy is crumbling for pete's sake.

Real bottom line is that mayors, governors and even senators are supposed to bring home the money for their constituents -- and both Obama and Palin have brought the bacon home (I don't know how lifetime senators McCain and Biden do with this.)

In a way, being how this is how the system is set up, US political acumen could be measured in dollars brought back home.

Real question is why did Obama and Biden vote against moving the money to Katrina victims.

How much clearer could you possibly want.

No one, and I repeat, NO ONE, is going to repeal abortions and send botched abs to the ERs of America.

Now, if you people stop focusing on abortion, which Bush brought up every election, but went silent on after elected, and focus on the real issues, you'd see what is going on here.

Face it. She was fantastic. There is nothing that she could have said that would sway the bots. So, their opinion really doesn't matter. It's the indies and mod-cons dems that McCain is after. The "base" he has completely.

Palin said NOTHING!


Can anyone state her economic plan, her energy plan, her deep knowledge of foreign relations(she did NOT answer the question about the US going into Pakistan..WAFFLED all over the place).

She knew NOTHING about bush's doctrine. She waffled on homosexuals, waffled on abortion(ya ya ya we got her PERSONAL opinion but not if she plans to try to overturn Roe!!!)


ZERO! ZIP! NOTHING!

I think the Dems have plenty of ammunition from the interview. McCain/Palin are in trouble. She has aligned herself with virtually every major Bush policy you could imagine. Politically, she would represent a 3rd Bush term, more so than McCain did without her. The scariest part is that she couldn't come up with any real difference between Bush's economic policy and her own.

Don't bother speaking the truth. The minds of the base have been captured. From here on out, it's fundamentalism all the way.

No, both your posts, though the quote you were responding to showed up attributed to you, so I fixed that.

You waffled, but I know you won't let it happen again.
