Govenor Palin Remarks at GOP convention

Excerpts: Remarks by Alaska Governor Sarah Palin
Vice Presidential Nominee to Address the 2008 Republican National Convention

SAINT PAUL, Minn. - This evening Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republican Party's vice presidential nominee, will address the 2008 Republican National Convention. Excerpts from the governor's remarks, as prepared for delivery, are below.

On her experience as a public servant:

"I had the privilege of living most of my life in a small town. I was just your average hockey mom, and signed up for the PTA because I wanted to make my kids' public education better. When I ran for city council, I didn't need focus groups and voter profiles because I knew those voters, and knew their families, too. Before I became governor of the great state of Alaska, I was mayor of my hometown. And since our opponents in this presidential election seem to look down on that experience, let me explain to them what the job involves. I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a 'community organizer,' except that you have actual responsibilities."

On why she is going to Washington, D.C.:

"I'm not a member of the permanent political establishment. And I've learned quickly, these past few days, that if you're not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone. But here's a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I'm not going to Washington to seek their good opinion - I'm going to Washington to serve the people of this country."

On energy policies that the McCain-Palin administration will implement:

"Our opponents say, again and again, that drilling will not solve all of America's energy problems - as if we all didn't know that already. But the fact that drilling won't solve every problem is no excuse to do nothing at all. Starting in January, in a McCain-Palin administration, we're going to lay more more nuclear plants...create jobs with clean coal...and move forward on solar, wind, geothermal, and other alternative sources. We need American energy resources, brought to you by American ingenuity, and produced by American workers."

On John McCain:

"Here's how I look at the choice Americans face in this election. In politics, there are some candidates who use change to promote their careers. And then there are those, like John McCain, who use their careers to promote change."

Govenor Palin's Experience vs. Obama's Experience (or Lack Thereof)

Ed Morrissey, writing over at Hot Air does a great job pointing out some of the flaws in Obama's argument that Governor Palin's experience is inconsequential.

What more do you need, than this picture of her with a caribou she shot. How hot is that? Wouldn't you rather have a VP like that, than some suit from Washington?

I'm sure by now that you have seen the interview clips of Obama pointing out how Governor Palin was the mayor of a town with only a handful of employees. Two things have apparently not occured to Senator Obama...

First, she's no longer the mayor of a small town. She is now a governor, the chief executive, of a state with the per capita GDP greater than that of the ENTIRE COUNTRY of Germany.

Second, why is he comparing HIS experience to the VP CANDIDATE? I mean, granted, her resume is more impressive than a guy who usually just votes "present" on tough issues--when he is in Washington at all, but come on, he seems to be spending an inordinate amount of time trying to downplay the candidate for an office we will all forget about unless McCain dies of old age while in office.

And all of this from a guy promising "change" while picking a Washington fixture like Biden for his VP. Its too aparent to me that his side will be business as usual in D.C.

"I advocate war with our enemies, and crushing them into the ground."

Were any finer words ever spoken by an American? I'm not sure.

I can't tell you how excited I am about her selection. She almost makes voting for McCain palatable.

She's obviously pro-life, strongly against government waste, fraud, and cronyism. She's the mother of an Iraq bound soldier.

And you want to talk about 2nd Amendment rights? This is a lady who used to wake up before school to go moose hunting.

For that matter, doesn't America deserve a hot VP?
