“Don’t you think we made the right choice for the next vice president of the United States?” asked McCain, who is to give his formal acceptance speech Thursday night.
Yes, I do!
If you missed Sarah Palin's wonderful speech tonight, all I can say is "find it somewhere." What a brilliant speech it was. Here are a few quotes to whet your appetite:
“I'm just your average hockey mom signed up for the PTA because I wanted to make my kids’ public education better.”
“I’m not a member of the permanent political establishment, and I’ve learned quickly these past few days that if you’re not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone."
“But here’s a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I’m not going to Washington to seek their good opinion,” she said. “I’m going to Washington to serve the people of this country.”
“Since our opponents in this presidential election seem to look down on that experience, let me explain to them what the job involves,” Palin said. “I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a ‘community organizer,’ except that you have actual responsibilities.”
“I might add that in small towns, we don’t quite know what to make of a candidate who lavishes praise on working people when they are listening and then talks about how bitterly they cling to their religion and guns when those people aren’t listening,”
“Here’s how I look at the choice Americans face in this election. 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."
“There is only one man in this election who has ever really fought for you, in places where winning means survival and defeat means death, and that man is John McCain.”
“Sometimes, even the greatest joys bring challenge, and children with special needs inspire a special love,” Palin said.
“To the families of special-needs children all across this country, I have a message: For years, you sought to make America a more welcoming place for your sons and daughters,” she said. “ I pledge to you that if we are elected, you will have a friend and advocate in the White House.”
Romney, Huckabee, and Giuliani also gave good speeches. I especially liked when Giuliani made reference to executive decisions made. He noted that Palin has made more than the other ticket combined! That line brought down the house.
Palin performed her job impeccably tonight. She absolutely slaughtered NOBAMA without ever once even uttering his name. I think the country will see why she was chosen for the number two slot, and it is my opinion that the Great State of New Hampshire can be painted in RED! I stick to the predictions of my previous post!
