    Why are the Republicans afraid to let her speak to reporters? Why only let her say what her handlers write?

    To me this is a big red flag.

    After the way the media has tried to crucify her this past week do you blame her for not speaking with them?

    The media is just upset because they were not part of the vetting process. As if they need to be.

    She has to be tougher than that. Foreign leaders make our media look like Boy Scouts. If she can't handle the media here, then may the Good Lord help us if she ever had to deal with the leaders of other countries, esp. like Russia and China. McCain would hold his own with them I believe, but if she is this tender these leaders would chew her up and spit her out.

    Plus, this is an insult to the American voters. We need to hear her speak for herself, not what her handlers have to say.

    It really bothers me how cavalier so many seem to take this nomination. An election of the president and vice president is a very serious matter.

    Maybe she's not tender, maybe she just doesnt see the point in answering questions from folks that are going to twist everything she says and try to attack her with her own words.

    Face it, no matter what she says, NBC, CNN, NY Times, ect will use it to try to discredit her. Let her get her political beliefs before the people without interference first, and when its all laid out, then ask her the questions.

    Because she owes it to the American voter to tell us in her own words, not in the words of handlers. If she only speaks what she is told to speak then we will not know what she believes, but what her handlers believe will sell to the American voter. This is not honest.

    This has dampened my view of her greatly.

    Your only source is a blog? Is there soemthing real and offical to base this on? You know, like an actual videoed interview, newspaper account giveing a real and truthful testimony of being told these exact words?
    Anything other then personal opinion on a blog?

    this is exact republican wording? Please prove this.

    Time in cooperation with CNN

    A liberal left wing rag. I have news for the left. The press does not represent the people. They represent themselves and their sick agenda's. Any and all ability to be objective was lost long ago. Palin will answer questions in her time frame and not the press's.

    Obama is just now accepting an interview with Bill O'rielly. The left wing libs have imposed motives without any real evidence of their accusations.


    Here is an example of which I speak

    She was just nominated this week, only a few days now. I am sure you'll hear her speak more then once through out the rest of the campaign.

    Once the liberal media get hold of it it won't be her own words anymore. It'll be the words they wanted her to say. Completely twisted.

    Oh I agree with you 100%, it should be in her own words. But trying to get her words out while defending herself from a hostile press would be rather difficult dont you think? They dont want to know what she stands for or believes in, they want to destroy her.

    Crabby somehow I doubt your view of her could be anymore dampened than it was before she spoke.

    Remember back in the day "The Straight Talk Express"

    Remember back in the day "The Straight Talk Express" with McCain , well those days are gone and it is all out battle on the media.


    Attacking the media will not work in this day and time as in the past, because you have the old media and the new media and they want to find the truth or ask simple questions.

    Nobody's picking on Sarah, she has raised a lot of questions and the longer it takes to answer them , new and old media will wonder why.

    I don't blame the old and new for pushing past all the talking points to get to the truth.

    Should she respond to the people of the Enquirer, no, but McCain's people need to do a better job, this strategy will backfire on them, just because times have changed .

    My Opinion on this Political Board

    First of all, it is not her place or any VP candidate's place to set policy for the upcoming administration, that falls to the Presidential candidate.

    Second of all, it is John McCain's place to make any announcements as far as policy which will probably happen tonight. He is the Presidential candidate and the limelight and decision making process falls on his shoulders. He hasn't even formally accepted the nomination yet! Good grief!

    You are expecting too much, too soon, and prematurely. Next week, I'm sure the press will be briefed in detail AFTER John McCain accepts the nomination tonight. What you and the press and other liberal complainers are asking is in bad form and not the protocol of how these things are done. Maybe you don't know about it, but the press does, so their whining is ridiculous at this stage of the game.

    That is because you have no ability to understand anyone who does not agree with you totally. There are those of us who do not care which party is elected into power as long as they do a good job.

    I had hopes for her when she was nominated. I even defended her in several posts. However this cannot be defended. The media has not treated her any differently than they do other politicians. Questions have been raised. Some are good and should be raised, some should not have been raised.

    Do you defend Obama from outright lies some of the conservative media have published. I don't think so. Have you overlooked areas that need to be explained by Palin. Yes, and if someone disagrees with you then you drag out your word, 'liberal.' As others have noticed anyone who does not agree with you totally is a liberal.

    My opinion of her can 'dampen' much more or it can 'become dry' depending on the future. But, she needs to speak her own words, not the words of handlers.

    I have got news for ya bub. There is nothing to defend. There is no error or wrong. The press is not someone she has to answer to at any point. LE has cleared up the rest of what needs to be said.

    People here act af is Sarah Palin said she would answer no questions, why would you purposely mislead like this?
    She obnly accepted the nomination last night, when exactly did you want her to start with the interviews and spilling the beans on herself, her daily persoanl habits ans such? Less then 24 hours and you claim she won't talk to the media.
    As someon already said, the media isn't interested in knowing anything, they are interested in destroying a republican candidate thinking it will ensure a liberal baby killer takes office.
    Nothng more.
    And yet you let yourselves be lead by the liberal God hating media.
    thats a joke right? gotta be, cuz it ain't christian.

    It's a blog from Time. America does need to know where she stands because at with McCain at 72 it is a good chance she will be left holding the trigger in the end. I thought she should have addressed more issues in her speech. It was a good motovational speech, but very little substance.
