In an in-depth exclusive interview with Big Hollywood, T. Michael Andrews, a former adviser to the McCain presidential campaign defends Governor Sarah Palin, saying that the premise of HBOs Game Change is dead wrong that she was not the reason the Republicans lost the election Obamas fundraising is.
Andrews, a former lawyer for the Bush administration, left his position at the Department of Homeland Security in 2008 and recently authored a book, The Border Challenge about his experience fighting the drug war for the U.S. His interview with Big Government in January can be read here.
Andrews left Homeland in 2008 to serve as the Southwestern Regional Coordinator for the McCain/Palin Presidential_Campaign and was in charge of operations throughout Arizona, New Mexico and West Texas. Heres what he had to say about the former Alaskan Governor and the presidential election of 2008:
The premise of the Game Change film is that Sarah Palin cost the Republicans the election in 2008. Do you agree?
I disagree with the premise that Palin lost the election in 2008. The fact of the matter they say that money doesnt win elections, I say bull. Obama had more money than he knew what to do with. He was very fortunate to ride on a wave of Bush fatigue, a rejuvenated electorate with this hope and change message and more importantly, he had money, which allowed him to tap into deep resources.
Lets face it, he ran one of the best campaigns, and Ill give him credit, from his win in the Democratic primary against Sen. Clinton to his general election win, his election will go down in history as one of the best run campaigns in political history. He caught a tsunami as far as how the electorate were feeling at the time...

Yes. I remember the Convention. Many of the other speeches were good. Palins was the best. McCains was so flat I keep waiting for him to get some pep into it. He made Gerald Ford, by comparison, seem like Patrick Henry .
McCain performed excellently as Hussein’s running-mate.
