Biden vs. Palin: Who is the victor?
As the debate started, I was rooting for Palin. I want to see her succeed, her and McCain to win, and the world to be a better place. I have watched Palin stumble through questions, especially from Katie Couric, so I was hoping for a better performance.
She did better. In fact, she got better as the debate went on. She did look nervous early, and she tried to address questions out of place, but she gradually found a groove. She did the best she could with her experience. She was fighting an extremely difficult battle with a seasoned politician. I say politician because is just that. He doesn’t belong on the Obama ticket. Obama is talking about change, and here is a guy talking about how he has always done it.
I think that if a winner is declared, it would have to be Biden. He was better spoken, addressed the points better, and stayed on task a little better. He had more concrete responses. I hate to even type this, but I think he did a better job.
Does that mean Obama and Biden should win? Absolutely not. Obama screams change, when Biden is nothing but old politics. Obama can’t tell you how is going to feel today, much less a stance on any issue. Any stance we hear from their ticket comes strictly from Biden. Obama is just a front man. The Democrats knew they needed someone that looked nothing like Bush or McCain, and that is what they got in Obama. They couldn’t have put Hillary out there, because she is too similar. Unfortunately, Obama has no substance, so they had to put Mr. Politician, Biden, on the ticket. This is such a game…
The Republicans will win this election. McCain and Palin will convey their beliefs to the American public, and America will understand that their positive livelihood rides on a Republican win.
