From the floor of the GOP 2008 National Convention: anti-Right Keith Olbermann’s hosted broadcast on MSNBC deployed interviewer, Ron Allen, who stopped Newt Gingrich and asked him about GOP Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s “experience.”
(Sarah Palin)…she’s a national figure.
But to be fair, her resume is not something that we’re familiar seeing with Presidential candidates.
Well, it’s stronger than Barack Obama’s — I don’t know why you guys walk around saying this baloney! She has a stronger resume than Obama.
She’s been a real Mayor, he hasn’t.
She has been a real Governor, he hasn’t.
She’s been in charge of the Alaska National Guard, he hasn’t.
She was a whistleblower who defeated an incumbent mayor — he has never once shown that kind of courage.
She’s a whistleblower who turned in the chairman of her own party and got him fined twelve thousand dollars.
I’ve never seen Obama do one thing like that.
She took on the incumbant Governor of her own party and beat him and then she beat a former Democratic Governor in the general election.
I don’t know of a SINGLE thing Obama has done except talk and write.
And, and I’d like you to tell me one thing you think Senator Obama has done.
(Brief Pause.) Thanks very much, Mr. Speaker, I’m going to leave it there, I’m not going to argue the case…thanks very much.
Keith, back to you.
Ron Allen with Newt Gingrich (…) There were some openings provided by former Speaker Newt Gingrich right there, ah, we will get to them in a moment…(never did).
Gratis, HOT AIR, for the link.
The attacks from the Obama Left (and most Democrats, it appears in media) continues on Sarah Palin.
In my estimation, this overwhelming onslaught of ugliness from the Left speaks volumes as to the Left’s absence of ethics, if not deranged community-characteristic. It also represents a startling irrational attempt by the Left to deflect attention away from Obama and avoid discussing him.
Which leaves me concluding that the Left is captured in their support for a candidate, Barack Obama, who is defined by hyperbole only – look any closer, you see the reality of the candidate without the “airbrushing” or media retouching and the Left has no means to spot-remove the many huge question marks hanging all over their cut-out in paper clothes.
Thus, they attack Sarah Palin. What we’re seeing taking place at this date in and by the media (excluding Fox News, who at least includes some reasonable opinion otherwise) in this current Leftwing media malignment of Sarah Palin, is beyond despicable, it is cretinous
This attack on Sarah Palin by the Leftwing is also the Leftwing’s wan attempt to avoid “vetting” Barack Obama. I suppose they’re assuming that American voters will just pay the few dollars and buy their tired trash (and vague candidate) instead. Not going to happen.
The Leftwing media, as with the Left on the internet, has not gone unnoticed into implausibility and disgusting offensiveness, and I can think of little that they might do at this point to ever gain the respect of many of us voters. Who are also consumers.
