Palin’s Speech Full of Lies And Exaggerations Because….
Let us check out some facts.
Palin: “Our son Track is 19.”
Fact: Tell him to keep the seat warm, Delaware Democrat personally has added a compelling twist to his case. On Oct. 3, Biden's son, Joseph Robinette "Beau" Biden III. Since it has nothing to do with being VP or president, and since he had so much more to offer he didn’t mention it. His son was there, and anybody who wanted to know could look it up. He is in the National Guard. You know the people supposed to be guarding our national borders.
Palin: And children with special needs inspire a special love.
To the families of special-needs children all across this country, I have a message: For years, you sought to make America a more welcoming place for your sons and daughters.
Fact: I am surrounded by “special needs” Children. I grew up one. I have three friends and colleagues with Down Syndrome babies. The one thing they will all tell you they need more then anything else is “time”. They never seem to have enough time. That is what the good parent of a special needs child will tell you. Yet this woman thinks running off on a hopless quest to be VP is the best thing for her 3 month old Down’s child.
Palin: He's a lifelong commercial fisherman ... a production operator in the oil fields of Alaska's North Slope ... a proud member of the United Steel Workers' Union ...
Fact: She forgot to mention that her husband’s own union doesn’t support her Candidate. She also forgot to mention that her husband’s union spends most of its Washington time fighting the policies she supports. Also that his politics are very different then her own.
Palin: (I) was elected to the City Council and then elected mayor of my hometown, where my agenda was to stop wasteful spending and cut property taxes and put the people first.
Fact: The town she was elected mayor of, was left indebt $20 million. For a town of 6,700 people. You do the math.
Palin: told Congress thanks, but no thanks, on that "bridge to nowhere." If our state wanted a bridge, I said, we'd build it ourselves.
Fact: That was spot on. She first said “thanks”, then once the state had the money she said, “no thanks” and kept the money. The state, however, never gave back any of the money that was originally earmarked for the Gravina Island bridge, said Weinstein and Elerding
At that point she turns to what John McCain has done. Nothing about what she will do. Nothing about her thoughts on major issues. Just a bunch of lies and stretched truths. Like I expected anything else.
