McCain's VP Choice, Good?

How do you feel about John McCain’s VP choice? You know he chose Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, which has raised many critical questions on McCain’s judgment in the media. Was it the right choice or not?

According to a post on the National, McCain’s choice “raises dangerous questions about his rash decision to pick a little-known rookie politician as his vice-presidential nominee.”

According to the Washington Post, McCain’s vetting team said that Palin was not subjected to a lengthy in-person background interview process yet, she was chosen by McCain as VP the day after. This choice reflects an impulsiveness that, as president, could tempt him to overreact in a crisis.

He himself has stated “I make them (decisions) as quickly as I can, quicker than the other fellow, if I can. Often my haste is a mistake, but I live with the consequences without complaint” (Daily Kos). The thing is if you make those hasty decisions as President, you won't suffer the consequences alone; you'll have millions of Americans to suffer with. Is that the kind of President we want?

During this entire race to the white house, McCain has been saying “can we trust Barack Obama who is so inexperienced?” We should be asking “can we trust McCain who makes hasty or erratic decisions?”

With so many questions about McCain’s judgment, could this hurt his campaign? Do you think he made the right choice to have chosen Palin as VP? If you were McCain, who would you choose as your VP?

“can we trust Barack Obama who is so inexperienced?”.........This is the question.......I'm not ready to let this man run my country. All we know about him is that he was a "community organizer" and had associations with alot of questionable people.

I hope you take the time to learn more about Obama so that you can make an informed decision on election day.
From PolitiFact:
"Obama, 47, has been a U.S. Senator for Illinois for the past four years.
Prior to that, he was a state senator for eight years, from 1996 to 2004.
He also was a civil rights attorney for four years full time, and he practiced law part time during the eight years he was in the state legislature.
Obama also taught law school part-time and wrote a couple of best-selling memoirs. Right after college, Obama spent three years working as a community organizer, a part of his history that is often highlighted on the campaign trail."

If you don't konw - now you know. Check out PolitiFact - it's non-partisan, so everyone can trust it. It's all about digging up the truth - and I'm always pro-that.

I do not trust Obama. I do not think I can trust him. He does not have the experience to run this country and UFCW is foolish to endorse him!
