Palin’s Chief Qualification is She ‘Hasn’t Had an Abortion’

She ‘Hasn’t Had an Abortion’

South Carolina Democratic chairwoman Carol Fowler reportedly lashed out at Sarah Palin Wednesday, saying the Republican vice presidential candidate’s “primary qualification seems to be that she hasn’t had an abortion.�? reports that Fowler, wife of former Democratic National Committee Chairman Don Fowler, said that John McCain’s decision to choose an abortion rights opponent would not boost his candidacy among many women.

“Among Democratic women and even among independent women, I don’t think it helped him,�? she told

Palin — a self-described “hockey mom�? and mother of five children — gave birth April 18 to her youngest child, Trig, who is diagnosed with Down syndrome.

Appearing on FOX News Wednesday, McCain campaign spokeswoman Jill Hazelbacker called Fowler’s statement “despicable�? and “sad,�? and said voters from all parties should be happy Palin is McCain’s running mate.

Her candidacy is, “a historic moment for this country,�? Hazelbacker said of Palin.

Fowler issued an apology Wednesday evening.

“I personally admire and respect the difficult choices that women make everyday, and I apologize to anyone who finds my comment offensive,�? she said in a written statement. “I clumsily was making a point about people in South Carolina who may vote based on a single issue. Whether it’s the environment, the economy, the war or a woman’s right to choose, there are people who will cast their vote based on a single issue. That was the only point I was attempting to make.�?

Don Fowler last week was forced to apologize after being captured on an amateur video during an airplane flight chuckling while saying, “Hurricane (Gustav) is going to hit New Orleans about the time (the Republican National Convention) starts. … That just demonstrates God is on our side.�?

There is not too much that can be said about the above statement that it hasn’t already said for itself.

All I have to say is this, if Fowler’s remarks are an example of what the Democratic leadership calls CLASS, I want NO part of it. Ms. Fowler, you and your husband are, without a doubt, the most despicable pieces of garbage to emerge from the debacle that IS the Democratic party to date! The Democrats have many ills but you 2 are stunning examples of everything that is WRONG with the Democrats.

Obama: Let’s hope lessons of Katrina were learned

BOARDMAN, Ohio - Barack Obama expressed hope Saturday that the lessons learned from Hurricane Katrina three years ago would help to protect the Gulf Coast from Hurricane Gustav this time. His running mate, Joe Biden, urged people to pray that the levees in New Orleans hold.

Obama and Biden visited a diner in this Youngstown suburb, an area that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton carried during her failed presidential bid. Trying to connect with those who are economically struggling, the Democratic candidates and their wives chatted with diners and told reporters that a properly orchestrated evacuation would be key to protecting the Gulf Coast.

“It wasn’t last time, and hopefully we’ve learned from that tragedy,” Obama told reporters as he left the diner, heading to a memorial service for the late Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, the first black woman to represent Ohio in Congress. She died Aug. 20 from a brain hemorrhage caused by a ruptured aneurysm.

Obama and Biden planned another joint appearance later Saturday in the Columbus area.

Obama: Let’s hope lessons of Katrina were learned

Barack Hussein Obama is one of the stupidest Dems to ever draw breath! This is the man that would be president of the USA, this is the man of NO experience, NONE. Not military, not business, not as a community leader, not as a Mayor, not as a Governor, NOTHING, other than being a JUNIOR Senator that doesn’t know his ass from a hole in the ground!

He “hopes” that lessons were learned from Katrina?

Pay attention you dimwitted imbecile! Louisiana learned the lessons, they dumped Blanco, a pandering Democrat that is even dumber than you are, and that is hard to imagine.

New Orleans has learned NOTHING, they still have *Chocolate* Ray, they have Warren Riley and they still have the welfare mentality that made New Orleans the debacle it is.

Here’s something a lot of Dem libs and *nanny state* moonbats don’t understand, 1st response is the job of the city, the Parish and then the state, IN THAT ORDER. 1st response is NOT the job of federal government. During Katrina the government in Louisiana ceased to function, Blanco wasn’t in danger, she was in Baton Rouge with her head buried in her fat ass crying “Oh my God, what do I do? Why isn’t the President helping?”. Nagin deserted his city and took his wife and kids to Dallas, where they still live today.

Lessons learned Barack?? You betcha there were lessons learned! Katrina gave everyone a real hard look at what this nation could be like if the Dems are ever allowed to take full control. The state of Louisiana learned a HUGE lesson, New Orleans didn’t.

Let’s hope that America pays attention to how an effective Republican and Conservative Governor takes care of business, the Honorable Bobby Jindal.

The Guard is in place right now, the entire Louisiana Army National Guard is activated, there are many troops already on station with more troops are on the way. There is a massive response ready to react to any eventuality. Response, or, more precisely, lack OF a response, that was the downfall of the nefarious Kathleen Babineaux Blanco.

Dem Governors sit on their asses and watch as their cities gets washed away, sit on their asses and do NOTHING except wait for someone to come in and do it for them! Conservative Governors are planned out so far in advance that only the hand of God can hinder their full response to the needs of their people!
