John McCain Picks Sarah Palin for Running Mate; Domagalski To Hold Press Conference

by on August 29, 2008

John McCain has selected Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate. An absolutely fantastic choice.

Erie County Republican Chairman Jim Domagalski will be addressing John McCain selection of Sarah Palin at a 2pm press conference at Erie County Republican Headquarters.

UPDATE: It’s funny when supporters of Barack Obama, the most inexperienced major party candidate for president in history, try to play the experience card with Palin.

UPDATE: It looks like Buffalo Pundit on his Democrat blog took issue with a comment I made in this thread.Unfortunately for him, he didn’t have any DNC talking points handy and needed to ask his readers to help him respond. And from the looks of things, he hasn’t gotten any good talking points to counter my statement.

  1. I’m not playing any experience card on her whatsoever. Who had more experience than Cheney and Rumsfeld and look where that got us ?

  2. The country was doing fine until the Democrats took control of congress.

  3. not right permalink

    Wheren’t we doing fine until we got Bush as president too?

    It’s that type of thinking that will never improve America.

  4. The country was doing fine until the Democrats took control of congress.

    That was a joke, right? Oh, God, please say that was a joke.

  5. And what was so horrible? The record economic growth? Unemployment under 5%. Higher wages. Significantly lower gas prices than today’s.

    There’s a reason the Democratic majority has brought congressional approval to historic lows.

    The Democrats failed us. That’s the simple truth.

  6. IIRC, gas prices shot up in the wake of Katrina to previously unseen levels. Katrina was in 2005, and it was only one in a laundry list of fundamental failures of the Bush administration.

    It’s hard to run an effective federal government when your belief system is based on the Norquistian idea that the federal government should basically exist only for military purposes.

    Bush is a bigger spender than any liberal ever was. He completely abandoned the Powell Doctrine with respect to military engagement. The list goes on and on.

    Republicans usually complain that the current congress never does anything. If they haven’t done anything, how did they cause all these problems? If they haven’t done anything, isn’t that the Republican wet dream?

  7. If you look at the average price of gasoline over the past few years, it shot up significantly after 2006.

    Katrina demonstrated a failure of the local government, which didn’t properly evacuate the area before the storm, and initially rejected FEMA’s assistance. Mayor Nagin and Governor Blanco bungled that one.

    Congress is actually the branch of government that does the spending. Though, it should be recognized, that while Republicans did abandon conservative principle by spending too much, Democrats, who promised to limit spending in 2006, have been worse.

    Abandoned the Powell doctrine? another canard.

    The Democratic majority has spent money, but they’ve failed to address various problems, such as drilling, or building new refineries, … but the were able to finagle a minimum wage hike, which has proven again to be bad economic policy.

    Pelosi, Reid and their socialist friends who controll congress = Fail

    Bush Tax Cuts, McCain and the Hottie from Alsaka = Success and a Bright Future!

    NOBAMA
    Keep The Change

  9. It’s hard to run an effective federal government when your belief system is based on the Norquistian idea that the federal government should basically exist only for military purposes.

    We haven’t had a federal government like that since well before the days of FDR. Then, FDR put this country on a path of wild social spending that can not be sustained without dire economic consequences.

    In essence, the democrats have been blackmailing the republicans for years to keep the government gravy train growing by leaps and bounds in exchange for approval of their own programs. The republicans bear their share of responsibility for complicity and their own forms of wasteful spending. Pragmatism and a lack of proven principles have cost our country dearly.

    If the federal government scaled itself back and used the military ONLY for defense of our natural borders, we would undoubtedly be the economic superpower of this millennium.
