Palin: 'Far-left wing of the Democrat Party’ could takeover

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption caption=" Palin told supporters today that the McCain ticket 'will win!'"]
LAKEWOOD, Ohio (CNN) - With her voice beginning to crack on this final marathon day of campaigning, Sarah Palin promised an audience in Ohio: “We will win!”

“You can just feel it here,” she said at a rally in the Cleveland suburbs. “You can just feel it here in Ohio, victory's coming, we can do this, we can win, we can win Ohio. And we must win for you.”

Watch: Palin says Obama's tax plan is 'phony'

The crowd chanted “We will win! We will win!” throughout her remarks. At one point, Palin warned with urgency: “We must win.”

“We must win,” she said, “because Ohio, the far-left wing of the Democrat Party, not mainstream Democrat ideology, the values, the planks in the platform of the Democrat Party. It's the far-left wing of the party is getting ready to take over the entire federal government.”

Palin again accused Barack Obama of wanting to bankrupt the coal industry, citing an interview the Democrat gave to the San Francisco Chronicle in January in which he discussed his “aggressive” cap-and-trade proposal to limit carbon and greenhouse gas emissions.

“Just yesterday, revelation, an audiotape surfaces,” Palin argued, despite the fact that the Obama interview has been posted online for nine months. “People are starting to hear in his own words what Sen. Obama’s intention is for the coal industry. You got to hear this tape. You’re going to hear Obama saying it, talking about bankruptcy, bankruptcy there in the coal industry. He’s explaining all this to the San Francisco Chronicle, and he says …”

Palin was interrupted by an audience member who shouted “Liberal!”

She continued: “And there must be something about San Francisco and he because it’s like I heard on Fox News today, it’s like a truth serum where when he’s there, he seems to be more candid, and remember it was there that he talked about, there you go, the bitter clingers, the cling-ons, all of us, I guess, you know holding on to religion and guns and, um, so something about he being there in San Francisco.”

    Hey, how is the bird's nest on top of your head? Election time is less than 24 hours and you still steadfastly refuse to release copies of your medical records? Are there abortion, implants, or ADD treatments in your records which explain why you don't want to release your medical records? Go back where you belong, back to the wilderness.

    We don't need no stinking Republicans. Watch them scurry away like rats with their obscene wealth in their greedy little paws.

    We don't need their jobs. We will soon spend our days marching hand-in-hand to pick up our fat welfare checks.

    Yup, you betcha Sarah, the Democrats are indeed preparing for a takeover!

    Better start getting that concession speech ready.

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

  11. Vindicated?? I don't think so...

    Perhaps Obama's supporters are taking a stance between old and new. Maybe they don't care about McCain's service or his strength of character, or his unblemished qualifications to be President. Maybe 'like ability' is a higher priority for them than 'trust'. Being a prisoner of war is not what qualifies John McCain to be President of the United States of America – but his demonstrated leadership certainly DOES.

    It is time for us to stand. It is time for thinking Americans to say, 'Enough.' It is time for people of all parties to stop following the party line. It is time for anyone who wants to keep America first, who wants the right man leading their nation, to start a dialogue with all their friends and neighbors and ask who they're voting for, and why.

    There's a lot of evil in this world. That should be readily apparent to all of us by now. And when faced with that at evil as we are now, I want a man who knows the cost of war on his troops and on his citizens. I want a man who puts my family's interests before any foreign country.

    I want a President who's qualified to lead.

    I want my country back, and I'm voting for John McCain.

    Palin needs to grow up and go home to her comfort zone in the wilderness! She will not win nor will McCain! What she and McCain don't understand is that this world is in dire need for CHANGE that begins with the healling power of UNITY as ONE PEOPLE under ONE NATION! The Republican ticket has been a clear sign of DESTRUCTION, DIVIDE, and DISTASTEFUL

    Palin can't seem to complete a coherent sentence. God help this country if she becomes our vice president.

    Right, FOX news in the joke.

    Save the fact that the left wingers have nbc, cbs, abc, cnn, msnbc, the NYT, the LAT, and the list goes on and on.

    You can't say that Obama didn't say what Palin is claiming he said- there's audio tapes released.

    Just because it comes from FOX, doesn't mean its not true.

    People who refuse to acknowledge that their side is wrong are dangerous, and it doesnt matter if they come from the left or the right.

    If you can't admit your side it wrong at least SOME of the time, you are an ideological nut and zealot, and you are dangerous.

    Think about it.

    Signed- Libertarian sick of partisan BS destroying our country.. I HATE YOU REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS!

    Well at least they released their ,medical records... Palin go back to Alaska and face your abuse of power charges. You are nothing more than a liar...We went through 8 long years of liars...Bush/Chaney terrorized us more than anyone expect...Spying on us, tracking the internet and calls..

    You are certifiable a nutcase. Remember for 6 years the Repiblican ran both Congree and the Senate...

    You are worried that you could not get into the Senate to shake things up, they will tell you to go back to Alaska... Then you will go POSTAL..

    Folks, watch Palin and McCain and you will see the clear and present faces of desperation.

    Yes, this is what desperation looks like, not to mention fear and ignorance.

    Sarah Palin has lost the election for John McCain on several fronts. It shows his poor judgement in selecting someone with absolutely no relevant experience or any substantial knowledge of the issues affecting us today. I am very disappointed in him!

    November 3, 2008 11:08 am at 11:08 am |

    It is God's will her voice is starting to crack. Mainly, to stifle all the outrageous lies she tells, but more importanly she is beginning to make my eardrums bleed.

    Sarah the Loser for 2012!

    You'd think that someone would have pointed out to her by now that she's making herself look stupid every time she says it "just surfaced". So either she thinks she can get away with it and people will just believe this made-up "revelation"... or her own people can't stand her, haven't said a word and are letting her look stupid.

    I'm so fed up with the Republican campaign, it's just not even funny. *I* could have run the campaign better than this. Just about anyone could have.

    I have always been a strong REPUBLICAN supporter and still am a die hard republican. HOWEVER I am VOTING DEMOCRATIC. I may be a republican but I am not stupid. Our party with Palin on the ticket and the Bush folks behind the scenes are a complete disaster and I would go as far as to say a joke. Time to send this pack a message by strongly supporting the better candidate in THIS election in Barack and Biden. Send Palin and the back room boys a message to pack your bags our party has no place in our future for you. Rebuild for the future to once again positively represent this country in the future. FELOW REPUBLICANS VOTE WITH ME, VOTE DEMOCRATIC THIS ELECTION, SEND A CLEAR MESSAGE.

    Governor Palin – wow, you sound just like Bush '43 – you cannot really undestand anything, unless you can categorize things into "absolutes."

    My word – the Neo-cons must love you!

    Yes, and the far-right wing of the [R] party is getting ready to leave power. Thank God! I'll take what Ms. Trailer Trash calls the far-left over what we have all recently experienced as the far-right any day of the week.

    But what is truly telling is that, as an Obama supporter, I'll put up my conservative credentials against any supporter of McCain. Note that I did not say "right wing". Those who think the two concepts are the same need to re-evaluate; it is likely at the core of the reason that [R]s have lost power, and is the reason that many [R]s will be leaving the party that represents the interests of the likes of Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, and Rudolph Hess.
