Sarah Palin’s View Of America is Too Narrow To Lead This Country

Sarah Palin has her nerve. This is your America and my America. Sarah Palin does not have the luxury to define her vision of America and who is patriotic and who is not. Yet Palin was on the campaign trail saying that different parts of the country mirror her vision of America. This statement was to the exclusion of other parts of the country that she perceived as being opposite to her viewpoint.

Although Palin later refuted and clarified that all America mirrored her beliefs.  This largerly because Joe Biden called her on  her original statement.  Perhaps one could say that this was Sarah Palin being Sarah Palin. Basically being incompetant.  Only a few days ago Palin made a similular comment about Barack Obama;

“This is not a man who sees America like you and I see America,” she said. “We see America as a force of good in this world. We see an America of exceptionalism.” …Sarah Palin.

This statement was made only a few days of the campagin trail. The probem is Sara Palin’s view of America is not a broad, diverse one. She has not been exposed to what America is all about.  It is a diverse country, not a country dominated by one idealogy, but one that is diverse. We as American’s do not have the luxury of picking and choosing our country,our states, or the people who inhabit it.  That is  what makes  America great; its diversity.

Obama Campaign Asks For Special Prosecutor

The Obama Camp called for a special prosecutor to handle allegations of voter fraud. This comes on the increasing attacks by Republicans to link the Obama campaign to voter fraud allegation with ACORN.  The grassroots voter registration, which has been accused of alleged voter fraud in a number of key contested states.

This move will serve to pre-empt Republican attempts to control the ebb and  flow any investigation and place the investigation in the hands of a special procecutor who will have a more even handed, unbiased approach in determining whether any voter fraud was in fact committed.  The bottom line is that until anyone attempts to vote, their registration must be verified and they must  prove that they are who they say they are.  Long before anyone votes, dubious and questionable applications are thrown out, primarily because they do not  meet the qualifications. Republicans know this, but they are using ” any means necessary” in order to  shift voters to McCain and try to win this election.   For more on the story read this link.  Obama Asks For Special Prosecutor
