Palin attacked by the press, Moms 4 McCain on Political Pistachio Radio

Vicious Attacks Against Sarah Palin – Moms 4 McCain On The Radio!


The attacks from the mainstream media against the Palin family have been vicious and uncalled for. The members of the press, in their attempt to discredit Sarah Palin, are grasping for straws that aren’t there. Some on the liberal left, specifically liberal bloggers, will try to compare this as being tactics no different to Conservative articles regarding Obama’s eligibility for the presidency, and questions raised regarding the connections he entertains with unscrupulous characters like Frank Marshall Davis, Bill Ayers, Tony Rezko, and Reverend Jeremiah Wright.

The difference is that the questions raised by critics of Obama were raised based on things Obama said, his stance on issues based on what he has said, and on the evidence provided by the Obama Campaign regarding the questions asked regarding his political connections and eligibility. The attacks against Palin are based on rumor and unproven hearsay, and upon family matters that does not concern politics. None of the issues raised regarding Palin should have been politicized.

Palin’s husband has not said he is not proud of his country, Sarah Palin’s minister is not a radical, anti-American individual teaching an ideology rooted in divisive attitudes, and her family history has been laid out for all to see rather than shrouded in secrecy and uncertainty. Also, the mainstream media has given Obama a pass on every question raised, including his inexperience (which is crucial since he is at the top of the ticket) – yet within the first days of Palin’s involvement in the GOP ticket she has been viciously attacked, and her experience has been ruthlessly questioned.

Notice that under the questions raised, by the way, the Obama Campaign responded accusing the Right of being racist, bigoted, and smear merchants for simply raising these questions. Sarah Palin has responded honestly, and graciously – showing her true strength of character – an image of character Barack Obama has failed to unveil.

And in the end, I ask you this: Who do you prefer for your next President and Vice President?

Would you prefer John McCain who is a man who in the face of the horror of being a prisoner of war, when given the chance to be released early, refused because his men and country were more important than himself? A man that has questioned Washington while serving as a politician in D.C., who has vowed to eliminate wasteful government spending? And would you prefer this candidate who is paired with a woman, Sarah Palin, that has worked her way up from the grass roots of real America to become the most popular governor in the country and is known for stamping out corruption and wasteful spending in her state, while being heavily involved in attempting to solve our energy crisis?

Or would you like a President with no foreign policy experience, 143 days of Senate experience before forming a presidential exploratory committee, his main accomplishment is giving a great speech once or twice (which wasn’t even written by him, and he needed a teleprompter to deliver it in order to keep from filling the speech with hundreds of “uh”s), who calls a child a punishment rather than a blessing and would snuff out the life of that child should his daughter make the poor decision to allow herself to get pregnant outside of wedlock, whose wife has never been proud of America until her husband got a political promotion in that country, would rather put his hands over his genitals than over his heart when the National Anthem is played, and attended church led by a radical Black Theology teaching pastor claiming that everyone disagrees with his pastor every once in a while rather than recognizing the hate and leaving the church? And do you wish to vote for this man named Barack Obama who fails to answer questions directly, fails to give specifics in his position on issues, and when he does provide any evidence of his positions they contradict his position given the last time he muttered his position? And do you want this inexperienced man known for delivering a great speech he didn’t write that he read on a teleprompter, joined by a running mate that, despite the message of “change” by Obama, is hardly anything remotely resembling change, and is instead a 36-year career politician in the U.S. Senate, and is best known for being an attack dog?

  1. Wow, where to start. First off, I am a stickler for the facts and these facts cannot be found in the media persay. You see, when you listen to a news report, realize 10% percent is fact and the other 90% is opinion. Should it be that way? No, but that is another issue altogether. No, this comment is about Mrs. Palin. Oh, Sarah of Alaska. Governor of what? 9,000? Okay, first off, let me recommend a site called factcheck.org. It is an interesting, unbiased site, that decodes the media messages. I recommend everyone voting to check this site out as well as other sites, including the ones that list what the each candidate and its respective VP voted for. That is the best way to know what they stand for.
    Now, about this article. First off, this is a political race, a game, a battle, if you will. You think Palin is getting unfair treatment? Really? The media wasn’t as hard, or even harder on Obama or even McCain? Every side is slashing the other side in hopes to convince the last remaining fence sitters that they are right. It’s like this every four years. Should Palin be exempt? Why, because she is a woman? Now that would be sexist. Some people call me a feminist, and I am. I believe is equal treatment. So if Obama, Biden and McCain are going to get slammed by the media, why not Palin? I do not believe Palin’s family should be involved, but that goes both ways. Back off of Michelle Obama.
    On another note, what do we really know about her political history other than what she has told us? The other day, Her speech focused entirely on slamming her opponents and voicing her opinions, but very little fact was involved. Truth probably is, she doesn’t know the facts. Why? Because she has very little experience. And, I’m sorry, very little education (She has a B.S. or something or other). The way I look at it, you got to have one or the other. But then again, aren’t Obama/Biden and McCain/Palin at the same level when it comes to education and experience collectively? Everything is equaled out.
    What I am worried about is her history. I want some hard facts about her history. I want records. The article above gives nothing about Palin except she was a governor from Alaska. No, the writer was so busy slamming Obama. This is a diverting tactic. As is McCain making a mother of five, an avid hunter, young grandmother his running mate. She is a symbol and nothing else. Gee, she can’t be that dangerous! She’s a soccer mom! OF course, what was her joke about soccer moms? ‘What’s the difference between a soccer mom and a pitbull? Soccer mom’s were lipstick!’ Doesn’t sound like much of a joke to me as a reality check.
    Oh, and McCain. McCain, McCain, McCain. Mr. POW. Not to undermine his strength, courage, and dedication to the USA, but can we really stop using his POW status as an excuse for his actions or a reason that he should become president. Really. This is also another diverting tactic. ‘Q: what will you do about gas problems? A: Well, as a former POW…’ Really, it’s getting old.
    And about that drilling for oil so as to liberate the Americans from burdensome gas prices, among other things, It won’t work anytime soon. He’s fooled alot of people on this one. If we start drilling for oil on our own land right now, it will take approx. 30 YEARS to get usuable oil. Check out the facts on that one. It is from the Energy and Information Administration.
    Oh, and the last of my ranting comes to this. Pastor Wright, good ol’ crazy Pastor Wright. Now, he is not my pastor, nor would he ever be, but I got to give the man some credit. Instead of going to FOX news (I know how you Republicans work ;)) try and find his sermons in their ENTIRETY. I did and it was an eye opener. The news has this habit of just piching out phrases that will most likely get a rise from the public (which it does so successfully) but are completely out of context. Now, some things are a little more damnable than others, but Wright’s speeches in their entirety are nothing like what we heard on the news. As for Hagee, the pastor that supported McCain, who McCain has NOT denounced, is another crazy story…

  2. in response, hmmm, where to start? I am not saying that they shouldn’t be critical, I am saying that the press has disregarded the top of the ticket (Obama) not having any experience but 143 days of following in the Senate, yet the bottom of the GOP ticket (Sarah Palin) has executive experience, and more than Obama (regardless of the size of the town) and they are all over it like wolves on prey. Facts? Facts about Obama and Biden have been ignored as rumors and hearsay is being treated as fact by the mainstream media regarding Sarah Palin. You bring up Hagee, which supported McCain, yet set aside Wright which Obama attended the sermons of for over 30 years. Hagee is considered crazy because he sticks to Biblical teachings? Tell me, what did Hagee say that is so horrible, and why does Obama get a pass on Wright? Tell me? You are pissed off because Palin is a conservative of the caliber of Reagan, and it scares the left because believing in America with values like hers hurts the libral socialist agenda.
