Surprise Voter for McCain

by LukeAmerica2020
If a speechwriter for John McCain had switched sides and announced she was going to vote for Barack Obama, the mainstream media (MSM) would give the story top billing for two or three days. Now, in reality, an Obama speechwriter DID leave his campaign promising to vote for McCain last Friday (2008-10-28) … and … not even a gentle whisper from the ludicrously Obama-biased MSM.

Wendy Button has also written speeches for Democratic Senators John Edwards, Hillary Clinton, and John Kerry, and for Boston Mayor Thomas Menino. Plus, she is a writer for The Huffington Post.

Ms. Button was particularly upset with the way first Hillary Clinton, and later Sarah Palin, was attacked in subtly sexist ways by her Democrat bosses. She noticed what many objectively minded Americans have been noticing for months, which is that the lines of attack on these brilliant women politicians would never have been attempted against a man. She put her principles before party and defected.

Here are the highlights of Wendy Button’s explanation of why she made the switch:

I didn’t leave the Democratic Party; the Democratic Party left me. Not only has this party belittled working people in this campaign, it has also been part of tearing down two female candidates.”

 

“Since I started writing speeches more than ten years ago, I have always believed in the Democratic Party. Not anymore. Not after the election of 2008. This transformation has been swift and complete and since I’m a woman writing in the election of 2008, very emotional.”

 

I can no longer justify what this party has done and can’t dismiss the treatment of women and working people as just part of the new kind of politics. It’s wrong and someone has to say that. And to also say that the Democratic Party’s talking points — that Senator John McCain is just four more years of the same and that he’s President Bush — are now just hooker lines that fit a very effective and perhaps wave-winning political argument … doesn’t mean they’re true. After all, he is the only one who’s worked in a bipartisan way on big challenges.”

 

Governor Palin and I don’t agree on a lot of things, mostly social issues. But I have grown to appreciate the Governor. I was one of those initial skeptics and would laugh at the pictures. Not anymore. When someone takes on a corrupt political machine and a sitting governor, that is not done by someone with a low I.Q. or a moral core made of tissue paper. When someone fights her way to get scholarships and work her way through college even in a jagged line, that shows determination and humility you can’t learn from reading Reinhold Niebuhr. When a mother brings her son with special needs onto the national stage with love, honesty, and pride, that gives hope to families like mine as my older brother lives with a mental disability. And when someone can sit on a stage during the Sarah Palin rap on Saturday Night Live, put her hands in the air and watch someone in a moose costume get shot — that’s a sign of both humor and humanity.”

  1. I’m Italian, but is not important…
    In my country the past 15 September to Milan, was killed to bolted Abdul Salam Guibre, a 19-year-old boy from Burkina Faso that had stolen a package of cookies.
    If I support Barack Obama from so distant, is because I believe in the world unity.
    Another Italian of name Cristoforo Colombo, a lot of centuries ago does crossed the Pillars of Hercules; challenged the unknown, arrived in an unblemished part of world and stranger until then…
    There in he was welcomed from persons with a culture and a story from that learn. What Colombo led to the return from its journey was evolution, change; “two tight hands and united that did from bridge on the Atlantic ocean”. The residents of those lands arrived in Europe, but alas…
    They weren’t welcomed with the same diplomacy reserved Colombo. Our part of world that it is considered civilized to the of above of everything and of everything, looked for “to mold them” to its image and similarity, or at the worst; marginalizing them by means of the different color of the skin and to give back the slaves. The same Colombo defended and supported those persons, and ended in chains.
    Then I wonder…
    And if Cristoforo Colombo hadn’t undertaken that travel on 3rd August 1492?
    But the story it is not done with the “if” and the past changes not. To the opposite one the future we could know it alone making; all together with much tight hands and united.
    To who hung to a world without races, to a multicultural society, to an evolution concepted in right manner; it chooses Barack Obama…
    Young and charismatic embodiment of that American dream had from Martin Luther King on 28th August 1963 in Lincoln Memorial to Washington D. C., under a sky without clouds.
