Hasselbeck Stumps For Palin

Barack Obama has been on The View and answered dozens of questions from the ladies including conservative host Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

After a weekend rally where Hasselbeck spoke for Governor Sarah Palin and her efforts to become Vice President for candidate John McCain's presidential ambitions, Hasselbeck announced she wants Barack back on The View.

She has some follow-up questions.

Never mind that the election is seven days away and it is at a fever pitch that is palpable. Both candidates are busy in swing states including Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida and Virginia.

What's fascinating about Hasselbeck's current excitement is her normal zeal for politics is so much further jazzed after attending that rally in Tampa, Florida.

Whether or not she can translate that excitement for her candidate into an appearance by Barack Obama is hard to know.
If we know the Obama campaign, even if the appearance is by satellite, they will make it happen. No one loves engaging in a spirited debate about the issues more than Barack Obama and Elisabeth Hasselbeck…it's great TV!

Keep drinking your Obama Kool-Aid. Either your stupid or have learning issues. Either way I'm glad mike and Howard Keller are Democrates. I don't want them in my party. Acknowelodge you have your hand out for free stuff, you want what you have not worked for. It's ok, I don't look down on lazy, good for nothing people of the USA. I pay my taxes so you can live and bread more bums. Enough said..... Good for nothing pieces of dung.

I agree Howard. How can she campaign for a woman who is so unethical? Although she has a nice tush, I hope this is the beginning of the end of her public life. Palin was found to have abused her power by Alaska's Ethics Report. Palin charged the state for her children to travel with her, including to events where they were not invited, and later amended expense reports to specify that they were on official business. The charges included costs for hotel and commercial flights for three daughters to join Palin to watch their father in a snowmobile race, and a trip to New York, where the governor attended a five-hour conference and stayed with 17-year-old Bristol for five days and four nights in a luxury hotel.

Mrs. Hasselbeck is a 35 year old inexperienced host who has no place on the View with her experienced perceptions like those of a Child. She should live in the World and realise that the Women she is Stumping for is completly against all womens rights including making a Victim of a Rape , Pay for her own Rape Kit. This Women can be seen on You -Tube having Demons expelled from her. She is a Nemisis to all women and as General Powell says, does not belong as a Vice Presidencial Candadate.
