Sarah Palin said in her speech the only difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull is the lipstick which had essential compared her to an attack dog. She filled this role at the Republican National Convention as she addressed her supporters for the first time as the Vice Presidential Nominee for the Republican Party.
She attacked Senator Obama 17 times by my account saing, "Before I became governor of the great state of Alaska, I was mayor of my hometown. And since our opponents in this presidential election seem to look down on that experience, let me explain to them what the job involves.I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a "community organizer," except that you have actual responsibilities.
then talks about how bitterly they cling to their religion and guns when those people aren't listening.
But the fact that drilling won't solve every problem is no excuse to do nothing at all.
But listening to him speak, it's easy to forget that this is a man who has authored two memoirs but not a single major law or reform - not even in the state senate.
This is a man who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting, and never use the word "victory" except when he's talking about his own campaign.
when the roar of the crowd fades away ... when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot - what exactly is our opponent's plan?
America needs more energy ... our opponent is against producing it.
Victory in Iraq is finally in sight ... he wants to forfeit.
Terrorist states are seeking new-clear weapons without delay ... he wants to meet them without preconditions.
Al Qaeda terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America ... he's worried that someone won't read them their rights?
Government is too big ... he wants to grow it.
Congress spends too much ... he promises more.
Taxes are too high ... he wants to raise them.
In politics, there are some candidates who use change to promote their careers. And then there are those, like John McCain, who use their careers to promote change.
They're the ones whose names appear on laws and landmark reforms, not just on buttons and banners, or on self-designed presidential seals.
For a season, a gifted speaker can inspire with his words. For a lifetime, John McCain has inspired with his deeds.
Sarah Palin also commented on Michelle Obama's proud comment when she said, "They love their country, in good times and bad, and they're always proud of America."
And Sarah Palin's criticism didn't stop with the Obama's, she even took on the Media. She created a campaign alter with this comment, "but here's a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I'm not going to Washington to seek their good opinion - I'm going to Washington to serve the people of this country."
Sarah Palin the attacker could quite possibly allow Senator McCain to make his speech without worry of having to bring down Barack Obama tomorrow night as he takes the stage to accept his parties nomination.
So tell me what you think. Rate Sarah Palin's speech. Do you think she did is the person to be the attacker on the ticket or will she do more harm? And do you expect her to tone down the verbal abuse, or will she continue it throughout the next 60 days until the election?
