McCain-Palin 2008 Launches Truth Squad to Counter Attacks on Governor Sarah Palin

Posted on 09/09/2008 3:03:50 PM PDT by flyfree

ARLINGTON, VA -- With today's Wall Street Journal report that pro-Obama Democrats have "airdropped a mini-army of 30 lawyers, investigators and opposition researchers into Anchorage" to dig for dirt on our vice presidential nominee, the McCain-Palin campaign today launched the Palin Truth Squad to counter recent attacks on Governor Sarah Palin, her family, her friends and her record of accomplishment. The Palin Truth Squad will set the record straight against Internet and liberal smears of Governor Palin.

"We're proud of Governor Palin's leadership in Alaska and record of taking on entrenched special interests and the good old boys network," said former Governor Jane Swift. "Governor Palin's commitment to reform is well-known but there are those who would seek to distort that record with vile rumors and smears against her, her husband, her children and her friends. We will not allow those on the left and in the media to smear a woman who has always served her constituents with honor. We know the truth and are committed to ensuring it as well."

If I were an independent, I would vote for Mccain/ Palin ticket just because of the despicable democratic machine.

Hey, if the MSM is up there practicing “checkbook journalism,” Anchorage locals could have a mini-goldrush.

Boy, it sure does look like Governor Palin is being “Swift-boated”. At least by the liberal definition.

This is truly disgusting.

How many Americans are aware that with Obama's blessings the DNC sent a combination of 30 lawyers and investigators to Alaska to see if they could find anything on Sarah. This is what desperate people do when they know they are beaten.

Sarah Palin is the most decent woman to enter into politics in a very long time. She exudes common sense, honesty, wholesomeness, love and fidelity to her family and those she serves. The woman is the Liberal/Socialist and Obamas worst nightmare! May the Lord protect this Lady from the evil being sent her way.

In my opinion, her protection should be our greatest concern, and prayer, such is the intensity to destroy her.

This is classic Chicago gutter politics folks. Obama is behind it and he has been from the start. Wake up people. It was that way all along.

What they don’t realize is that this sh*t does not work in all of the towns between Columbus, Pittsburgh and Charlestion. It will backfire.

It WILL backfire.

The truth-squad response looks to be well thought out and the squad itself consisting of high quality people. Exactly what is needed at this time - and to the election.

Of course, since the "liberal definition" need not have an ounce of truth associated with it..., of course it applies!

While I applaud them, I wish they would launch a squad to go to Chicago. They wouldn't even need a plan since they would not get far. They would probably be arrested for asking questions about the One. Hey, turnabout is fair play.

Fine, let's send 30 into Chicago to see what dirt still hasn't been found.

It really does. I hope those Wasilla residents give them what for.

And when a reporter comes up and asks a sleazy question, the resident should say “What tabloid are you from? Oh we don't talk to tabloids”, and walk away.

The airlift to Chicago?? I await orders! Only when it comes about, we will be digging for very deeply buried truth, not lies ans smears.

McCain and Palin need to cite the Obama dirty politics in their speeches, etc. This is the kind of man/party they are and have proven it throughout these vicious slanders. Shows you they are actively involved in it with sending the lawyers, investigators, etc.

I have always chafed at the Republicans propensity to "be above the fray" and not call the left on their slimy politics. When fighting gutter fighters you must counter their back stabbing and sneak attacks with equal ferocity. They think we are stupid for letting them get away with their schtick so easily.

This is an area in which I am most disappointed with GWB.
