All Aflutter About Palin?


No, not really.

The addition of Sarah Palin to the John McCain campaign does in truth make me more comfortable with the prospect of his becoming President of these here United States.

I admit to knowing little about her, so perhaps I should be all aflutter and just don’t know any better at this point.

What little I know, I like.

I know she is Pro-Life.

I know she was pregnant with a downs syndrome child and did not consider abortion.

I know her seventeen year old daughter is pregnant and it appears she has raised her children to understand that life is a gift.

Her pregnant daughter Bristol, will carry the child to term, she and the child’s father are to marry and raise the child together.

Governor Palin and her husband released the following statement:

We have been blessed with five wonderful children who we love with all our heart and mean everything to us. Our beautiful daughter Bristol came to us with news that as parents we knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned. We’re proud of Bristol’s decision to have her baby and even prouder to become grandparents. As Bristol faces the responsibilities of adulthood, she knows she has our unconditional love and support.

Bristol and the young man she will marry are going to realize very quickly the difficulties of raising a child, which is why they will have the love and support of our entire family. We ask the media to respect our daughter and Levi’s privacy as has always been the tradition of children of candidates.

Shall we compare and contrast this statement with what Barack Obama said concerning a hypothetical unexpected/unwanted pregnancy of one of his daughters?

Let’s do that:

If my daughter makes a mistake, I don’t want her punished with a baby

That of course does not mean that Barack would not support his daughter should she ‘choose’ not to abort.

It does however indicate that he would at least suggest to her that she ‘consider’ abortion.

What a stunning difference here.

One would encourage their grandchild being aborted, one would not.

I spent a little more time on that point than I intended to.

One last note, Obama did say today that Palin’s family is off limits. I find that respectable.

Back to the list of likes.

She has quickly gained a reputation for fighting government waste which straight away makes her an unusual Republican.

She is a life time member of the NRA.

So, I know after reading this it may sound as though I in fact am all aflutter.

But I’m not.

Really, I’m not.

I just happen to like what very little I know of the woman.

While I am fighting with if I will or will not vote for McCain the addition of Palin to the ticket does make it a tad more likely I will vote for him.

I must sadly admit however that the deciding factor were I to vote for McCain would have more to do with my out right fear of my nation being in the hands of the likes of a socialist such as Obama.
