Compare and Contrast

Should you choose to accept the assignment, today's lesson calls for you to compare and contrast responses to McCain's historical nomination of Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska as his running mate.

Immediately after McCain announced his selection, the Obama campaign sent out the following press release:
"Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency. Governor Palin shares John McCain's commitment to overturning Roe v. Wade, the agenda of Big Oil and continuing George Bush's failed economic policies -- that's not the change we need, it's just more of the same."
Here's Hillary Clinton's immediate response:
“We should all be proud of Governor Sarah Palin’s historic nomination, and I congratulate her and Senator McCain,” Clinton...said in the statement. “While their policies would take America in the wrong direction, Governor Palin will add an important new voice to the debate.”
Soon, Obama & Company realized they were sounding more than a little shrill and pissing just about every American from small towns off; and they did what they've always done in the past. Regroup and repackage the response -- in accordance with what Hillary had earlier said or done.
“We send our congratulations to Gov. Sarah Palin and her family on her designation as the Republican nominee for vice president," said the Democratic ticket in a joint statement. "It is yet another encouraging sign that old barriers are falling in our politics. While we obviously have differences over how best to lead this country forward, Gov. Palin is an admirable person and will add a compelling new voice to this campaign."
Well, glad to see the campaign finally got it right...

Comments:

You're right: sounds like Obama is running for President against John McCain.
 
THere's a whole lot of having to clean up after dumb remarks that goes on in the Obama campaign. Who wants that idiot in the White House?
