Last Political Post, I Promise!

I just wanted everyone to know that I am fair in my political views, and although I am very passionate and decided in my political views, I can also look at the politicians that I disagree with and see them as human beings. I was very impressed with this video of Sarah Palin. I think that she speaks very honestly and openly in her home with CNN, and sheds the thick fascade that she wore during the election. I just wish that all politicians could speak honestly and without spin all the time.

I like her, too. And I like her candor. I think too many Americans, though, still want to see and hear a smooth, savvy orator who can woo them with their dreamy words and alluring phrases. Whether or not they realize it, people don't want a straight-talker, they want someone who can cleverly blow smoke up their back side. I think that's a big part of the reason Obama got elected.

Interesting. All I know is I would definitely not want to be in that kind of spotlight regardless of which side of the election results I was on. I have no idea how any of them do it!

Whoa, whoa, back that train up just a sec. I never said I like her, though I don't dislike her as a person. I just said I can see her as a person, and separate the politician, who I definitely do not agree with.

And I do not think that enough Americans are persuaded by simple smoke blowing. I think that a lot of Americans are ready for the kinds of change that Barack Obama and a more liberal agenda would provide us.

Sorry, didn't mean to imply that you liked her. Either way, I do think that too much of America is persuaded by smoke-blowing. Maybe not all of America, but a lot of it. Sure, Americans were ready for a "change" but frankly, I'm afraid that they really don't know what kind of change is coming. I think that Obama has too many socialistic ideas and I just don't like that.
