Would Encourage Every American To READ Palin's NON ANSWERS

The Question: As America watches these things happen on Capitol Hill, Sen. Biden, was this the worst of Washington or the best of Washington that we saw play out?

A clear and concise question about the actions of Washington DC in this, the greatest challenge our nation has faced since World War II.

The Non Answer Answer: PALIN: Thank you, Gwen. And I thank the commission, also. I appreciate this privilege of being able to be here and speak with Americans.

You know, I think a good barometer here, as we try to figure out has this been a good time or a bad time in America's economy, is go to a kid's soccer game on Saturday, and turn to any parent there on the sideline and ask them, "How are you feeling about the economy?"

And I'll bet you, you're going to hear some fear in that parent's voice, fear regarding the few investments that some of us have in the stock market. Did we just take a major hit with those investments?

Fear about, how are we going to afford to send our kids to college? A fear, as small-business owners, perhaps, how we're going to borrow any money to increase inventory or hire more people.

The barometer there, I think, is going to be resounding that our economy is hurting and the federal government has not provided the sound oversight that we need and that we deserve, and we need reform to that end.

Now, John McCain thankfully has been one representing reform. Two years ago, remember, it was John McCain who pushed so hard with the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac reform measures. He sounded that warning bell.

As for John McCain representing reform. A) He for his entire political career until the Republican Convention he spoke up AGAINST REGULATION. B) Remember the Keating Scandal, and C) couple that with his son, Andrew McCain resigning his position on the Board of Directors this summer, just days before the bank FAILED.

People in the Senate with him, his colleagues, didn't want to listen to him and wouldn't go towards that reform that was needed then. I think that the alarm has been heard, though, and there will be that greater oversight, again thanks to John McCain's bipartisan efforts that he was so instrumental in bringing folks together over this past week, even suspending his own campaign to make sure he was putting excessive politics aside and putting the country first.

Thank GOD people in the Senate did not listen to McCain and President Bush...if they had, huge portions of peoples Social Security would have been invested in the crashed stock market, lost dreams on the floor of the exchange.

The Question: IFILL: You both would like to be vice president.

Sen. Biden, how, as vice president, would you work to shrink this gap of polarization which has sprung up in Washington, which you both have spoken about here tonight?

IFILL: Gov. Palin, you may respond.

The Non Answer Answer: PALIN: John McCain, in referring to the fundamental of our economy being strong, he was talking to and he was talking about the American workforce. And the American workforce is the greatest in this world, with the ingenuity and the work ethic that is just entrenched in our workforce.

We all know this is NOT TRUE, we all heard John McCain trying to back track two hours after he made the statement that the fundamentals of our economy are strong.

That's a positive. That's encouragement. And that's what John McCain meant.

It's rather a pathetic defence of her running mate, and further its sadder still she has to defend him for such an ill stated remark that showed ignorance of the facts on the ground on Wall Street, and on Main Street.

Now, what I've done as a governor and as a mayor is (inaudible) I've had that track record of reform. And I've joined this team that is a team of mavericks with John McCain, also, with his track record of reform, where we're known for putting partisan politics aside to just get the job done.

Read what Sarah Palin you have ANY CLUE what she ACTUALLY DID as either Mayor or Governor? Do you really think it an accident that she was inaudible when listing HER ACCOMPLISHMENTS?

Now, Barack Obama, of course, he's pretty much only voted along his party lines. In fact, 96 percent of his votes have been solely along party line, not having that proof for the American people to know that his commitment, too, is, you know, put the partisanship, put the special interests aside, and get down to getting business done for the people of America.

Senator John McCain has voted WITH GEORGE W BUSH 93 percent of the time during the seven plus years he has been president.

We're tired of the old politics as usual. And that's why, with all due respect, I do respect your years in the U.S. Senate, but I think Americans are craving something new and different and that new energy and that new commitment that's going to come with reform.

Don't you find it rather odd in that sentence that she did not couple new, different, new energy, and new commitment with John McCain, but instead with reform? I again remind you, reform intones regulatory change and control, something John McCain has been against his entire career.

I think that's why we need to send the maverick from the Senate and put him in the White House, and I'm happy to join him there.

Campaign Stump Rhetoric that we have heard FAR TOO MANY TIMES...simply stated, if Sarah Palin is so much about NEW and CHANGE, how come she has not come up with any new STUMP SLOGANS since the Republican Convention?

The Question: IFILL: Governor, Who do you think was at fault? I start with you, Gov. Palin. Was it the greedy lenders? Was it the risky home-buyers who shouldn't have been buying a home in the first place? And what should you be doing about it?

The Non Answer Answer: PALIN: Darn right it was the predator lenders, who tried to talk Americans into thinking that it was smart to buy a $300,000 house if we could only afford a $100,000 house. There was deception there, and there was greed and there is corruption on Wall Street. And we need to stop that. this really the wisdom, diplomacy and style you want and expect in a Vice President, in the person just one heart beat away from being the president?

Again, John McCain and I, that commitment that we have made, and we're going to follow through on that, getting rid of that corruption.

This sentence couldn't have been mangled better by George W Bush himself.

PALIN: One thing that Americans do at this time, also, though, is let's commit ourselves just every day American people, Joe Six Pack, hockey moms across the nation, I think we need to band together and say never again. Never will we be exploited and taken advantage of again by those who are managing our money and loaning us these dollars. We need to make sure that we demand from the federal government strict oversight of those entities in charge of our investments and our savings and we need also to not get ourselves in debt. Let's do what our parents told us before we probably even got that first credit card. Don't live outside of our means. We need to make sure that as individuals we're taking personal responsibility through all of this. It's not the American peoples fault that the economy is hurting like it is, but we have an opportunity to learn a heck of a lot of good lessons through this and say never again will we be taken advantage of.

BLAH, BLAH, BLAH...lots of platitudes, lots of playing on emotions, but there is NOTHING THERE. More importantly, Sarah and Todd Palin ARE NOT AVERAGE AMERICANS, ARE NOT JOE SIX PACK types. They have no credit card debt, they earn over one quarter of a million dollars a year, not counting their retirement FUNDS they have well over a million dollars in assets, and as Governor last year, Sarah Palin recieved over $80,000 in travel and lodging that SHE BILLED TO THE ALASKAN CITIZENS.

Every question and Sarah Palin answer is similiar in style and lack of substance to there three. The woman is OUT OF HER LEAGUE, and is NOT QUALIFIED TO BE VICE PRESIDENT, LET ALONE PRESIDENT. Keep in mind America, there is over and 80 percent chance that John McCain will not live out his first term in Office, which means Sarah Palin has an 80 percent chance of being the President of the United States.
