Default Palin??

Okay, When Palin was first picked by McCain as vice president, i couldnt find any "republican supporting" poster on this forum that did not like the pick.

Has your view on Palin changed? Do you still support her as vice.

She does have the lowest approval rating of any vice presidential candidate ever!!

However, I still think this decision will ultimately cost McCain the election

I support Palin 100% and have since the day McCain chose her as his running mate. She speaks her mind and stands her ground and I respect her for that, as I am much the same way.

Default Re: Palin??

first of all I wanted Romney before I knew who Palin was. At first I liked the pick due to thinking some Hillary voting women would vote for McCain/Palin, It was also refreshing to hear a politician who sounded like a regular person. Due to several factors the honeymoon was over in a hurry. A lot of woman seemed offended by the pick, and the media instantly hated her. So in retrospect, I don't think it turned out like they had hoped. We won't truly know until 2 weeks. I still support McCain/Palin, but she was not and is not my first choice. For the record, I am voting for McCain as the lesser of 2 evils. I wanted Guliani from the get go. I have no problem with pro choice, even though I don't like abortion it is a womans choice.

I think Palin was more a sop to the religious right than to disgruntled Hillary supporters. They did make a specific appeal to women at the intro rally, but main theme was that she was a younger version of J-Mac.

I still think she was the best pick. McCain couldn't afford a pro-choice running mate like Lieberman, Rudy, or Ridge. Romney is an unprincipled flip-flopper and his track record as governor looked like Dukakis. Only Michigan had a worse job market over those four years. Pawlenty would have been hammered over the bridge collapse. Portman was W's budget director I was hoping Palin would be the pick, and I still get excited whenever I see her on TV.

Palin's problem is that she's not a smooth-talking bull artist. She could fix that by staying on the national stage and spending a few years in DC but that would take away from her outsider/take on the old boy network appeal.

Say what you want about Palin, but wasent this nation founded on regular people being able to run for presidency/vice? Much is said about her, but I like the choice. Plus having a smoking hot VP is just fine in my book.

For the record I dont know much about Palin's stances on issues, but on the same token I know about the same amount of Obama's stances on issues, since they seem to change daily.

At least Mcain stand were he stands, to me thats a leader.

I'm sure that Obama would like to sit down to tea with you and explain that his stance isn't really a stance, it more of a tap dance.

Woah! I thought it was a good pick for whom it would bring on board as far as galvanizing the base and so forth, but I also didn't know much about her, which I remedied pretty quickly...

I did a quick about-face after I learned about several of her positions. I don't hate her, but I'm not a big fan, either. I think she'll serve the purpose she was recruited for, though...
