...the central message of the Obama campaign. The one based on new politics.
Gee all the mudslinging against her has worked to well so far..NOT! Most has been pathetic and easily brushed aside, making it harder if substantive issued do come out. That list of books she wanted to ban for instance.
We have the issues on our side. It does not matter who delivers the rebuttel. Probably Joe Biden, since that is the VP Candidate's job. Saying that we HAVE to have a woman deliver a message is ridiculous. And it will make us look that way. We have great candidates, the issues, and the polls. Let's not all get carried away
"She also isn't very good at economics- see her last budget for Alaska, highest in the state's history" Her last budget has a Surplus in the amount of about 5 Billion dollars. They are talking about rebating money back to the voters. This maybe one of the reasons her approval rating is 70-80%
"She took campaign donations from oil companies while running for Lt. Governor (10% of her total contributions)" When she took office in 2006 she pushed through tax increase on oil companies that added $6 Billion to the state treasury.
We need to go after her on issues, and views. But we must not be sloppy about it or it will boomerang.
A poll out asked which candidate would you like to meet. Number 1 was Obama (naturally) #2 was Palin. Likeability goes a long way in politics/campaigns
