    Her line about disabled people and disabled children having a friend in the White House was probably her best moment.

    Her comment, "leave this nation better than we found it" line wouldn't take much.....

    Her claims of her accomplishments as govenor should be checked... I'm sure we will hear all about it.... and wow, her comments about alternative energy.. first time I've heard that..

    Her comments about Obama just seemed cheap....and the comment about Obama not wanting to produce more energy was inaccurate.

    And of course her tax commentary was wrong.

    By the end of her speech I was thinking about going to bed. Through it all I wondered, if I didn't know where this woman came from politically, what would I think? Would I be impressed? I doubt it. I still heard nothing real for the people who are suffering in this bad economy or anything else concrete.
    Maybe we will hear something tomorrow night.... maybe not.

    ok... so she got up and spoke in front of a lot of people. good job, u did speak well. but um, i still know nothing about u, u spent a good amount of time talking about barack, can i know u? and quite frankly, she just seemed upset that her and mccain are not nearly as popular as obama. and although she was composed, i was bored... where was the meat? how are u gonna help those struggling today and how are u and ur ticket gonna ensure that people will be fine 4 or 8 years from now? i heard none of that. and what about those things that you have flip flopped on like the bridge to no where, or the fact that u did raise taxes or that u finished your time as mayor with a deficit in ur city? and then u yell at the media for doing its research. Please.

    and isnt it funny that after obama has written 2 books and been on the national scene for 4 years and people still say that they dont know him and what his values are and what he is about, but these people that were interviewed after her speech are saying things like "she is an example of the american dream" and "i feel comfortable with her" yet we all just met her... double standard maybe?


    i am not impressed, and would def not want her as my president should she have to step in for mccain.

    OBAMA 08'

    I would agree that she was a good speaker, but her tone was very Republican nasty, and she intentionally distorted Obama's record. Not for me, but I think there are enough people that will take her at face value as she a good speaker and pleasant looking.

    I was impressed with her as a speaker. I think she is a very empathetic speaker and some people will be drawn to her.

    However, I was disgusted by the same old political rhetoric. Ya, she isn't a member of the Old Boys Club, but she is using the same hateful language of 50%+1 garbage that has made a mess of political life, that turned us into a red state/blue state nation. She made me sick and I am glad she is going to lose in November.

    She looks and sounds like Tina Fey, and Gouliani gave a terrible keynote speech.

    she obviously knew her role was to appeal to the base.

    and in doing so she brought out the worst of an already sickening element in her party.

    Well at least as commander and chief of Alaska she understands the complexities of IRAQ ..

    1)first it was to get the arsenal of Weapons of Mass Destruction,
    2)then it was to get the 9/11 terrorists,
    3)then she says "we are fighting in some sense over energy supplies",
    ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3jnbiHAMuY ) [see time marker 8:04]
    4)NOW the Governor has revealed: "our national leaders, are sending (troops) out on a task that is from God."
    ( http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/09/02/palins-church-may-have-sh_n_123205.html )

    Tonight, I thought I also heard her mentioning Georgia/Russia but may have just been having a bad dream.

    Watch out middle east! watch out Russia! We are on a mission from God! Putin beware .. here comes ..

    Update: Yep, Iran, Russia, Venezuela all in one .. that old familiar war drum is beating!

    PalinWith Russia wanting to control a vital pipeline in the Caucasus, and to divide and intimidate our European allies by using energy as a weapon, we cannot leave ourselves at the mercy of foreign suppliers.

    To confront the threat that Iran might seek to cut off nearly a fifth of world energy supplies ... or that terrorists might strike again at the Abqaiq facility in Saudi Arabia ... or that Venezuela might shut off its oil deliveries ... we Americans need to produce more of our own oil and gas.

    I have to give credit for her stage presence. That being said..Too the Dems didn't get to pounce on that azz after the RNC. Gulliani really hit an all time low. He is so far right is eye is cocked. He couldn't give any respect to anyone outside his party. How pathetic. Did he even say anything at all positive about anyone? And Lieberman can suck a nut.

    Sarah Palin delivered!

    An embattled vice presidential candidate, a novice on the national stage, the head of a family suffering its "ups and downs," the first-term Alaska governor rocked the GOP convention with a star-turning performance.

    Within the first few hours after Palin's name was announced, McCain raised $4 million in campaign donations online, reaching $10 million within the next two days.

    The media hysterically denounced Palin as "inexperienced." But then people started to notice that she has more executive experience than B. Hussein Obama.

    They tried to create a "Troopergate" for Palin, indignantly demanding to know why she wanted to get her ex-brother-in-law removed as a state trouper. (For the record, Palin's ex-brother-in-law had Tasered his own 10-year-old stepson.) Again, public corruption is not a good issue for someone like Obama, Chicago pol and noted friend of Syrian National/convicted felon Antoin Rezko.

    Great choice for president, Democrats.

    Sarah Palin was magnificent and I'm in love.
    You can bet Obama & Biden are worried. They can't compete with a mother holding her baby. I can hear the rush of women voters moving toward McCain/Palin; I'm already there.

    well, you know the FBI is investigating her as well? It isn't just a bunch of liberal cranks.

    And stop with the Hussein thing. It is childish.

    Actually, the RNC chastised the Tennessee Republicans for using the H word. It's a thinly veiled scare tactic designed to associate Obama with false rumors that he's a Muslim...as if that matters, anyway.

    I've listened and read the transcript.

    Mylanta that was torture. I expected better, really. She had some good zingers, but so much misinformation and outright lies. I really expected better. Who edited and/or wrote that for her?

    By the way, AP shocked me with this:

    I saw most of her speech tonight and at the end of it was impressed. I think she still has a lot of explaining to win the middle crowd over, but her delivery tonight has started her off well. As a political moderate myself, I find it hard to vote in this sort of a scenario where I believe both candidates are good people. When Obama announced Biden to be his VP pick, my rating of him shot way up since I consider Biden a very experienced and conscionable person. Palin, I do not know much about at all. To borrow a concept that has probably been used by her tonight, speeches are one thing but actions speak louder and so I guess I will be waiting and watching her in the weeks to come.

    And given how old McCain is its very likely that could happen. God help us all. U.S. politics are world politics.

    I reluctantly post this at your request. Not because it's anything to fear, but because it's horrible. I had higher hopes for Sarah "Barracuda" Palin.

    MCCAIN/PALIN 08" !!!!!

    bye,bye..Obama.....don't let the door hit you on the way out . Don't forget the plastic Greek styro-foam columns and the hollyood loonies

    best lines of the night...........

    "Obama uses change to promote his career, McCain uses his career to promote change"....Palin

    "It's easy to forget that this is a man (Obama) who has authored two memoirs, but not a single major law or reform, not even in the state Senate"...Palin

    "This is a man who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting and never use the word 'victory' except when he's talking about his own campaign."...Palin


    "He's (Obama) never run a city, never run a state, never run a business, never run a military unit. He's never had to lead people in crisis...Rudy

    I was on the phone with my Mom tonight who was anxiously waiting to hear Ms. Palin speak - of course I told her how I was so against her and why and my Mother said that I was just too politically intense for her - and besides she hadn't decided who to vote for.

    After the conversation I decided the only way I can make a difference in this election is to let my voice be heard - by people who know and respect me. (sorry - bashing each other on the RJ forums won't do squat!).

    I'm going to let everyone that I know that if they vote for McCain and Palin that they personally are "putting me on the back of the bus" and really do they think that my rights are less then theirs? With McCain and Palin I will have no rights (although still paying the same taxes) - WTF!!!!
