Obama Camp: Palin’s Speech was Written by Bush’s Speechwriter

ImageWhile Republicans are busy trying to spin Sarah Palin’s fluff VP acceptance speech as proof that she is ready to lead, the campaign of Barack Obama put out a statement that called her speech well delivered, but the same old song and dance that we have been hearing for eight years.

Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton said, “The speech that Governor Palin gave was well delivered, but it was written by George Bush’s speechwriter and sounds exactly like the same divisive, partisan attacks we’ve heard from George Bush for the last eight years. If Governor Palin and John McCain want to define ‘change’ as voting with George Bush 90% of the time, that’s their choice, but we don’t think the American people are ready to take a 10% chance on change.”

Palin showed herself to be fine cheerleader for John McCain, but she demonstrated zero knowledge on any of the issues. Except for the biographical part of her speech, everything else was the standard McCain stump speech. There was no talk about the economy, healthcare, the mortgage crisis, foreign policy, or education. Instead this speech was dedicated to portraying Palin as the every woman suburban housewife, who really likes John McCain.

There was nothing of substance here as evidence by the fact that even used the same tired attacks on Obama. The campaign tried to paint the Democrat as an elitist who hates small town America and thinks that everyone there is bitter. This is the same tactic that the much more skilled and intelligent Clinton campaign tried and failed with.

There was nothing in her speech that convinced me that has any grasp of the issues, or the readiness to assume the presidency. Burton is right. This was the same standard, anti-Democrat Bush line that we have heard for eight years now. I am sure that Republicans lapped it up like starving dogs, but I doubt that her speech had much impact on non-Republicans. Palin’s speech was geared towards the Republican base. It did its job, but all in all was highly forgettable.

  1. What speech did you watch…It had more specifics than Obamas wish list. You wouldnt of liked it no matter what she said.

  2. hey tomjay name one specific she said in her speech. just one, you cannot why there wasn’t one to be found. Even the GOP party members on FOX agreed. Many though it was a good coming out speech but not a policy speech. but a mouth breathing jackass like your self would not understand that McChicken’s VP is to green to give one yet. oh well the debates should be fun.

  3. There was no policy there, she attached her bio to McCain’s stump speech. There was nothing, while Obama’s and Biden’s speech was full of policy. The reality is that we have learned that the GOP ticket will continue to the status quo. There will be no changes, that is what her speech was about.

  4. This unknown lady is McCains’ attempt to get Hillary’s supporters who are stuck on wanting to see a woman in the white house. Imagine if McCain were to croak, we would then be stuck with Palin, and her many family issues, making major decisions for this country. McCain thinks this election iS a game. OBAMA 2008!!

  5. Bill Burton is right when he said: “Republicans lapped it up like starving dogs” when Palin gave her speech. Good Lord!! There was nothing new. Only critizism. Can these repukes come up with something new? God have mercy on us if these two get elected to the most powerful job in the world. An old man that has had health problems and a woman that has no experience whatsoever at nothing, except 20 months as the governor of Alaska. Wow! That is big. When we are involved in 2 wars, are we to put somebody to deal with problems like these? Like Nixon used to say: My fellow americans: I say: think it over before you cast you vote. This is no joke.
