Default Re: McCain selects governor Palin as running mate.

The other thing that I thought was interesting is that Obama got a bounce out of her nomination even though her experience and track record are better than Obama's imo. I wonder if that is because the media only focused on the dirt they could find, perhaps attempting to discredit her. If the issues, and credentials, become the focus this election, I think Mccain and Palin will do just fine.....not sure that will be the focus though, unfortunately.

I personally believe that the [B]media's
B] obvious outright dislike and criticism of Palin is going to backfire against the Media and ultimely Oboma.

The media people in their arrogance do not realize how out of touch they are with main stream America. I would guess their approval rating is lower then the approval rating of congress, which is lower then the approval rating of Bush. All three deserve the disaaproval ratings. So far Palin is doing fine. One week ago I did not think Mcaine could win this election now I can see how he might.

The media as it is now performing is going to help Mcaine / Palin in almost the same way if Osam Bin Laden made a public announcement of support for Oboma.

No matter what happens MCaine has my admiration and he certainly has separated himself from Bush/ Chaney.

The interesting thing about all this is how the focus has been Palin's experince vs Obama's. That's not good for the Dems, because Obama is running for President, not veep...this makes McCain seem much more Presidential.

Not surprising...

most GOP'ers think Obama screwed the pooch with the pick of BIden.


It is a typical tactic of the opposing party, and both parties use it.
