Palin Defeats Biden the Old Fashion Way

…With Truth, Honesty, Courage and Sincerity


OCTOBER 3, 20008-- Vision America Director Rick Scarborough is available for Talk Show interviews to discuss how Faith Voters are united in their view that Governor Sarah Palin clearly defeated Joe Biden in last night’s debate.


The following is a statement from Rick Scarborough:


“The gloves were off and the pundits stepped aside while the two Vice Presidential candidates took center stage for their only planned debate, and what a revelation Americans received.  Instead of the Saturday Night Live version of Sarah Palin, what America saw was the Monday morning Sarah, an every day person who got fed up with politicians cramming money in their own pockets while spending their life getting re-elected saying whatever people want to hear, and decided to do something about it. 


Unlike the image that Madison Avenue has created of Palin, which fits their stereotype of Christian womanhood, “barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen,” what America saw was a poised, confident and assertive woman who knew who she was and where she wanted the country to go.  And the more Palin made that clear and exposed the differences in policy and practice of the two Presidential teams who would lead the country, the angrier and more like a politician Biden revealed himself to be.


Americans saw two approaches to leadership last night, and early returns reveal that the vast majority prefer statesmanship to political hacks who will say anything to get elected.  Joe Biden told at least 14 lies, and he told then with such gusto that it was shocking.  Here’s just a few of the more blatant ones that he stared into the camera and told the American people:

1)      TAX VOTE: Biden said McCain voted “the exact same way” as Obama to increase taxes on Americans earning just $42,000....The record shows that to be a lie.

2)      AHMEDINIJAD MEETING: Joe Biden said that Barack Obama never said that he would sit down unconditionally with Mahmoud Ahmedinijad of Iran. During his own bid for the Democratic nomination, Joe Biden attacked Obama with this charge!

3)      OFFSHORE OIL DRILLING: Biden said, “Drill we must.” But Biden has opposed offshore drilling and even compared offshore drilling to “raping” the Outer Continental Shelf.”

4)      REGULATION OF FANNIE MAE AND FREDDIE MACK: Biden purposely ignored the fact that the record shows McCain actually co-sponored a bill that would have called for more regulation on Fannie and Freddie and warned of imminent danger if more oversight wasn’t given to their lending practices, but was rebuffed.

5)      CLEAN COAL: Biden says he’s always been for clean coal, but he has a record of voting against clean coal and coal in the U.S. Senate.

6)      IRAQ:  Joe Biden was wrong when he said that John McCain was “dead wrong on Iraq”.  Joe Biden shared the same vote to authorize the war but differed on the surge strategy.  John McCain has been proven right.

7)      AFGHANISTAN / GEN. MCKIERNAN COMMENTS: Biden said that the top military commander in Iraq said the principles of the surge could not be applied to Afghanistan, but the commander of NATO's International Security Assistance Force Gen. David D. McKiernan has stated that there ARE principles of the surge strategy, including working with tribes, that could be applied in Afghanistan.

8)      TAX INCREASES: Biden said Americans earning less than $250,000 wouldn’t see higher taxes, but the Obama-Biden tax plan would raise taxes on individuals making $200,000.  Even ordinary Americans understand that businesses must make a profit to stay in business and any additional taxes will have to be passed on to consumers in higher prices.  Indirect taxation is the most cowardly form of taxion

9)      REAGAN TAX RATES: Biden was lying when he stated that under Obama, Americans won't pay any more in taxes then they did under Reagan. But set that aside.  The real question is are higher taxes a good thing for the economy that is at the brink or not?

10)  OIL TAXES: Biden falsely falsely characterized Palin’s position on reforming the way big oil operated in Alaska, calling it a windfall profits tax.  She reformed the state tax and revenue system but it was not a windfall profits tax.  If a business or industry should be taxed for being too successful, why not Hollywood, entertainment or professional sports franchises in which some of Biden’s best support comes from individuals making tens of millions of dollars a year?  Why not require Oprah Winfrey to pay a windfall profit tax?  Answer?  Because America does not believe in punishing success!


Sarah Palin won last night because Americans saw a woman who could lead who has lived most of her life on Elm Street;  not K Street, or Wall Street or Rodeo Drive.  Authenticity always trumps style.  Biden has been a part of the problem for 36 years.  Palen has a clear track record of being a part of the solution and I believe people sensed that last night.”
