Follow up to political-

Listen- I don't care what the color of someones skin is, their sex, or their political affiliation. I want a president with good moral character, principles and experience.
From my post below- I obviously believe Obama has serious character flaws.

To follow up with anonymous comments in my previous post:

I haven't seen McCain saying ANYTHING about Obamas skin color. In fact, McCain has defended Obama as a good man in recent days. People in his town hall debates have booed him over his defense of Obama. What does that say of McCains character? McCain doesn't want to attack Obama personally. that sounds like good morals to me.

About the position of VP and Biden getting it wrong-

Biden said: And the primary role of the vice president of the United States of America is to support the president of the United States of America, give that president his or her best judgment when sought, and as vice president, to preside over the Senate, only in a time when in fact there's a tie vote. The Constitution is explicit.

The only authority the vice president has from the legislative standpoint is the vote, only when there is a tie vote. He has no authority relative to the Congress. The idea he's part of the Legislative Branch is a bizarre notion invented by Cheney to aggrandize the power of a unitary executive, and look where it has gotten us. It has been very dangerous
.

The notion that the VP can preside over the Senate only when there is a tie vote is simply wrong. Nor is it true that the only legislative involvement the vice president has is to break tie votes. The vice president is the president of the Senate, where he interprets the rules and can only be overridden by a vote of 60 senators.


Palin said correctly stating that the vice president holds positions in both the executive and legislative branches, she also noted that:

Of course, we know what a vice president does. And that's not only to preside over the Senate and [I] will take that position very seriously also. I'm thankful the Constitution would allow a bit more authority given to the vice president if that vice president so chooses to exert it in working with the Senate and making sure that we are supportive of the president's policies and making sure too that our president understands what our strengths are.

My point in my previous post is that if the media had heard Palin say the postion wrong we would have heard all about it. Try and find something about how Biden got it wrong. You can't. Cuz they won't report negatively about democrats. That is a fact. And it is a shame for our country to have media that don't report accurately. A lot of people never hear the truth.

And as to the bit about Palin making rape victims pay for their kits. The police chief didn't want the town to have to pay for the costs because it would burden the city. He wanted to keep charging the women. And Wasilla is not the only town where that happens in America. Check out CNN's article on it.

Ok- Back to mommy mode....Liam is fussy.
