VP Debate

October 3, 2008 at 1:44 pm 1 comment

If you saw tonight’s debate, you saw Governor Sarah Palin give a spirited defense of the same disastrous policies that have failed us for the past eight years.

She couldn’t identify a single area where she or John McCain would change George W. Bush’s economic or foreign policy positions.

If you want something different, Barack and I need your help.
Make a donation of $5 or more right now to bring about the change we need.

The change we need is fixing this broken economy from the bottom up — not tax breaks for the wealthy and huge corporations that ship U.S. jobs overseas. We need to focus on defeating al Qaeda and the Taliban and restoring America’s standing in the world — not an unending commitment in Iraq.

Let’s be clear: Governor Palin and Senator McCain are offering nothing but more of the same failed Bush policies at home and abroad, trying to disguise them in the rhetoric of change.

    Again Palin was on to teasing Joe, disrespecting him by not calling him senator, using slang language and bringing the quality of debate down, talking about personality rather than ideaological issue like biden did and overall trying to use sexism in television to attract male audience to like her and give her favourable reviews.

    Joe Biden was at huge disadvantage, due to the fac that he was competing against a beauty pagent and whenever he picked up issues related to ideology and technically, Sarah would bring it down to people and politics. Sarah did not give a single reason why she was ready, other than asserting again and again that she is ready.

    Vice presidents of America should be known for their intellectual ability and ability to guide the presidents in serious issues rather than be a show piece for media to be diverted to. America has resonsiblity towards rest of the world to be stable and be a leader in issues. If the leaders of america are show pieces then we have huge problems for the world as a whole

    What the political commentators missed in the post-debate discussion was how Sarah palin did not speak her mind on key issues concerning foreign policy, internal job creation, supreme court rulings, health care or any other serious policy issue which effects american people.

    The only policy issue she was comfortable was energy issue and her solution is to dig through the problem rather than provide incentives to alternate sources of energy. Her foreign policy solutions are very arrogant in nature like Mccain in not talking to Iran or north korea, but to bomb their way out and leave diplomacy out of the door. This kind of policy pursued by Bush has resulted in American isolation in rest of the world. While Iran has friends now, America has none.

    If America needs to be respected throughtout the world, they need to show the diplomacy carrot. If you hurt the ego of any soverign nation, they will do exactly what you tell them not to do. Bombing countries should be simply ruled out as foreign policy option. USA should not be in perpetual state of War and then claim that war needs to be continued for the sake of soldiers who died.

    Sarah palin has single point of solution to all economic problems, cut taxes. Cutting taxes will make American government go bankrupt, like American banks. She does not understand economy or any other issue. He main strengthe is her charm, winks and feminine simle and using sexism to maximum advantage.

    The post-debate commentators said that Sarah palin did much better than expectations, but Joe Biden won the debate. The questions one needs to ask these people is why do they lower their expectations for Sarah Palin?

    There should be basic entrance exams like GMAT/SAT etc, which will test the candidates basic knowledge and understanding of foreign affairs, domestic problems, health care, economic issues and only candiadates who excel in that should be made eligible for the post of president or vice president.

    Sarah Palin’s ignorance on basic policy issues has put entire ameirca to shame. It has shown the failings of democracy and often brings wrong choices for the people to choose from.

    It was an insult to Joe biden that he had to debate a complete novice like Sarah palin on serious economic, political and foreign policy issues. Joe was clearly at discomfort because the opposiiton candidate did not understand what he spoke of and Sarah palin stood to her own rhetoric throughout the debate without responding intelligently to any of problems of America.

    It’s a shame that GOP is not able to field a suitable candiate to give a country a good debate for presidential elections. The country deserves much better.
