Incredibly enough, in the mere hours since the pick was announced, many amazingly non-self-reflective Democrats have assailed Governor Palin over the same issue that Barrack Obama is weakest on, in effect, highlighting his biggest drawback on the day after his biggest speech!
I expect most of that misguided and politically inept Democratic criticism to cease once word filters down from the Obama camp that that kind of criticism isn’t helping their own cause.
After all, the anti-Palin arguments are virtually ALL also anti-Obama ones as well.
“If she were a man, would she have been chosen?”
If he weren’t black, would he have been the darling of the MSM?
“Two years governing the small state of Alaska?”
Yes, and astoundingly enough, with that she is still the ONLY one of the major four to have ANY executive experience.
“Zero foreign policy experience?”
Ditto for Barack Obama.
“Zero D.C. experience?”
Has that (D.C. experience) suddenly become a GOOD thing???
OK, so “she’s anti-abortion” – the latest NY Times/CBS poll (could you get a more liberally biased poll than that?) has Americans OVERALL: 39% supporting abortion “generally available,” 38% “available but with stricter limits than now and 22% not permitted. So, in a country in which at least 60% of the population wants stricter limits on abortion than we have now, how does an anti-abortion stance hurt her?
Do you see where this is going?
Every attack on Palin’s youth (she’s 44, three years younger than Barack Obama) and inexperience comes back to highlight Barack Obama’s lack of same.
At this point it’s best to have this election boil down to ideology for the Democrats.
Especially with EVERY anti-Palin argument also coming back as an anti-Obama one.
