    Palin Touts the ‘Pro-America’ Areas of the Country
    Elizabeth Holmes reports from West Chester, Ohio on the presidential race.

    Like most campaigning politicians, Sarah Palin often praises the places she travels to, reminding her supporters what’s so great about their particular spot in the country.

    Palin often lists off a bunch of adjectives to describe the locale, like calling the scenery “beautiful.” She’s also fond of saying that the people in a particular place “just get it.”

    At a fund-raiser in North Carolina Thursday evening, she added a new one to the list: “pro-America.”

    “We believe that the best of America is not all in Washington, D.C.,” she said to applause.

    “We believe that the best of America is in these small towns that we get to visit, and in these wonderful little pockets of what I call the real America, being here with all of you hard working very patriotic, um, very, um, pro-America areas of this great nation. This is where we find the kindness and the goodness and the courage of everyday Americans.”

    The comment prompted Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton to send this e-mail to reporters: “Just asking: What part of the country isn’t pro-America?”

    I'm happy that Guvnuh Palin thinks I live in the "Pro-America" part of the country.

    Of course she would probably recognize that there are anti-Americans, like you, living in those locales.

    Nice job George. You have finally sunk to the lowest of the low, but coming from you it is a complement. Go back to the undisclosed location. It was nicer without you around.

    Palin continues to be a disaster for the ticket.

    Heck, Joe the Plumber (even though his name isn't Joe and he isn't a plumber and he doesn't make anywhere near the threshold that cause his taxes to increase under Obama's plan) has done more interviews than Palin.

    Don't be too hard on George. He's just an angry man. He's like that crazy homeless guy (screaming incoherently) you might meet walking down the street. Don't make eye contact and keep going like nothing's happened.

    Look she did what she was intended to do. Get the Republican base all worked up and let McCain talk to the rest of the world.

    His middle name is Joe. He probably goes by Joe more times than not. He works as a plumber therefore he are one, and WHEN he does buy out his boss a quarter million dollars to the company which will probably be JOE dba whatever plumbing company will be a quarter million dollars to JOE. He has done more interviews than Palin, and that's probably a good thing.

    Don't be too hard on George. He's just an angry man. He's like that crazy homeless guy (screaming incoherently) you might meet walking down the street. Don't make eye contact and keep going like nothing's happened.
    Don't be too hard on George. He stands up for his beliefs. He has his mind made up and unless you can show him factually otherwise he's not changing it. He is also fairly entertaining when he gets on a roll.

    Typical liberal spin
    On Friday, Palin clarified her comments.

    "It's all pro-America. I was just reinforcing the fact that there, where I was, there's good patriotic people there in these rallies, so excited about positive change and reform of government that's coming that they are so appreciative of hearing our message, hearing our plan. Not any one area of America is more pro-America patriotically than others," she said.
    And she isw 100% right. Washington D.C. is out of touch with America.

    The comment prompted Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton to send this e-mail to reporters: “Just asking: What part of the country isn’t pro-America?”
    Simple Answer: Washington D.C. We could also through in all of the socialist areas in this country.

    Let's be clear. Is it all of Washington DC or just a few senators and congressman. You surely don't mean Washington DC as a whole?

    This is correct. I'm speaking about the part of Washington DC we refer to as the U.S. Government.

    Folks that were going to vote for McCain anyway. She didn't add anything. Which is what McCain needed.

    He isn't licensed. I made the mistake of hiring a non-licensed plumber. Wouldn't do it again.

    Baloney. I've presented him with facts that are directly contrary to his idiotic opinions he hasn't changed.

    The irony being those socialist areas of the country subsidize the so-called "real" America.

    I don't believe that. You will need to post your supporting data.

    I already have several times. You should be able to find it with a simple Google search.

    It'll be good for you to find this information on your own.

    There's only one of me. But there's a new right wing nut case like you every week demanding proof.

    You're right, he's an apprentice and has been since November of 2003. He's working under his boss, who is licensed. In another couple of months, he'll have the necessary 5-years experience to apply for his own license.

    Sorry friend, all I can find is stuff that talks to states. I found one that talks to the tax burden per capita Total tax Burden But nothing speaking to rural vs urban areas.

    And shame on those right wing folks for actually wanting proof and not going by someones line of BS.

    I've also posted it on these boards. Sorry if you missed it.

    It's very easy to find for a person of average intelligence.

    I guess that doesn't include you.

    We do not honestly have those numbers. We have assumptions of the news media. We have those personal testimonies of people cherry picked by the news media to voice their opinion and poll numbers. Poll numbers could show Goofy leading Daffy Duck by 6 points in the morning. Who really knows what she has or hasn't done. None of us are the so-called experts.

    He isn't licensed. I made the mistake of hiring a non-licensed plumber. Wouldn't do it again.
    And that he is not licensed does not mean a thing about the jack *** you hired my friend. I use a un licensed plumber all the time. All his work is done on time, nothing leaks and he don't rape me on labor rates.

    Baloney. I've presented him with facts that are directly contrary to his idiotic opinions he hasn't changed.
    And some say the same thing about your opinions and what you sometimes call facts that come from MSNBC and the Huff Post. Just as I do you, I admire George for not backing off his convictions no matter how unpopular or sometimes mistaken they are.

    Or perhaps you think that the state by state statistic will do the job. I'm looking for finer granularity that shows urbanites pay more in taxes than Rural people. In fact, you will find that the cash flows from rural America into the cities. The cities have things like Huge Police and Fire Departments. They have Mass Transit that is subsidized by the rural Americans. They have huge slums sucking tons of money out the welfare system. So you my friend are wrong.

    Then what has she added if not the base that was going to vote for McCain anyway?

    The licensed plumber I use for my residence and rentals has been nothing less than exemplary. Sorry about your experience.

    I've never used the Huff Post. You have me mistaken for someone else. At least you recognize George's opinions are mistaken.
