So the McCain Campaign newest version of a one-two attack combo came in the form his new bulldog, vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin. Sarah Palin gave an arousing speech to the Republican National Convention Thursday evening, that gave a shot of excitement back into the GOP contenders campaign. Some question whether or not the speech written by herself, or written for her. Either way, many say it was a well deliver speech.
As if Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, and Rudy Guiliani did hold the convention appetite for tearing into Obama and his campaign, Palin comes in on her tirade. Shot after shot directed at Obama and his inexperience, lack of legislation, and his stance on the war. From all the cheers of the roaring crowd, the republican party and much of the country in whole fell in love with the Governor of Alaska. Call it witty, sarcastic, cynical, or comical it definitely hit a chord with people saying she is ready to get down in a fight if need be.
Obama campaigned fired back saying that it was similar to bush speeches of being devisive with non partisan attacks that they’ve been hearing for the past eight years. Some other comments I’ve heard is that the speech sounded much like she was running for student government as opposed to Vice President of the United States.
Now it’s only left up to a speech by McCain Thursday night and then the general election season starts. That’s when we really get to see McCain’s new attack dog in action. It will be interesting to see how she handles her first debate against Biden on October 2nd. There’s been much talk on how the more experience Biden will handle the Alaskan governor, but she’s apparently up to and able to hold her own. We’ll see.
Not for nothin’, but I hope she’ll be able to add in more substance and thought into her oratory skills. If she is to stand a chance against Biden, the media, or public opinion she’s going to need more than a pretty face and one-liners.
