I find it amusing to see the 'feminist brigade' out in force denouncing Governor Palin for daring to be a working wife and mother. Am I missing something here? Have not the feminists applauded Hillary Clinton for maintaining her career seperate to her husband's while having a child at home and yet Senator Clinton is seen as a 'feminist heroine?'
Due to a tragic event in the life of Senator Biden the Senator found himself to be a single father. It is his right that he chose to remain a Senator while looking after his children and it is obvious he is a devoted father and Grandfather. The fact that he made sure he returned each evening to his family is commendable, but Governor Sarah Palin also returned to her home once her work was completed.
Why is one person hailed as a hero and another denounced?
Then we have Senator Obama and his 'experience.' Yes, I agree, Senator Obama does enjoy a massive amount of experience and knowledge in how to defeat bills that oppose abortion. He is an expert at double talk without actually committing himself to a permanent position, lest he may have to flip flop in the future.
When asked the question about a baby's rights Senator Obama glibly stated, "I'm absolutely convinced that there is a moral and ethical element to this issue." Yes, there is Senator but what exactly is your answer to the above question? Glib comments are not opinions. Once again when questioned Obama stated that to answer that question was "above his pay grade." Really? As always with Senator Obama his pay grade speaks louder than his principles or lack thereof.
"Under her (Governor Sarah Palin) leadership, Alaska invested $5 billion in state savings, overhauled education funding, and implemented the Senior Benefits Program that provides support for low-income older Alaskans. She created Alaska’s Petroleum Systems Integrity Office to provide oversight and maintenance of oil and gas equipment, facilities and infrastructure, and the Climate Change Subcabinet to prepare a climate change strategy for Alaska."
That's called making decisions not in one's own self interest but with the interest of the people whom she was serving, the people of Alaska.
But Senator Obama was also busy in opposing the ban on Post Partial Abortions, he wanted it to remain. The Senator also supported infanticide, so yes, one can say he has a been busy man.
One has to concede though that Senator Obama means how he votes, he is on record stating that if his daughter made a mistake he would not want her to be "punished with a baby." So it's a case of killing one's own, rather than face up to responsibilities and be held accountable.
Governor Palin on the other hand is supporting her pregnant daughter who stepped up to the plate and decided to become a responsible human being and raise her unborn child with her soon to be husband. Sarah Palin doesn't see her soon to be born grandchild as a 'punishment' but instead see's it as a blessing. That's the difference.
As Michelle Obama so eloquently stated, "Who among the candidates running for the Senate of Illinois has stood up to the right wing politicians and voted against their agenda? Who can we count on to keep the Bush/Ashcroft team from appointing the Supreme Court Justice that will vote against Roe V Wade?"
Who indeed? Senator Obama truly does shine when it comes to defending abortions. Nobody does it better than Senator Obama.
My own personal opinion on the vitriolic attacks on Sarah Palin is due to the fact that she and her husband decided to keep their Down Syndrome baby. This flies in the face of every Pro-Abortion candidate and those who support abortions, isn't their motto that if it is not 'normal' then abort?
Once again Sarah see's her new baby as a blessing and Trig is indeed a blessing from God to the Palin family. Again that is the difference between the Obama family and the Palin family.
Do you see the difference?
