The Freedom Our Forefathers fought for must be protected.
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
- Ronald Reagan
Anybody who thinks that he was just honestly using this expression with no intent to refer to Sarah Palin has to be seriously navie. Obama thought he could get away with insulting the governor just by using a common idiom, but imagine what the outrage would have been if John McCain criticized the Democratic ticket by saying “the pot calling the kettle black.”
Use your common sense folks. Obama meant it as an insult. Not only did he call Palin a pig, but he went on to call John McCain an “old fish”–an insult referring to Mr. McCain’s age. Senior citizens vote in large numbers, and again Obama is treading on thin ground when he resorts to fifth grade name-calling.
this lipstick issue demonstrates yet again that McCain’s strategy for winning is based on personal attacks and distracting people from the main issues… i just hope people aren’t as gullible as the McCain administration seems to think
