Not ‘entitled’ to information
A recent caller into a local talk show had a very interesting perspective on the reaction the Democrats are having to Sarah Palin. The caller’s thoughts were along the lines of this: when people feel they are “entitled” and then fear they will not get what they are entitled to, they get angry. Interesting comment…
Could the Democrats just be plain angry that the Republican candidate for vice president just isn’t what they expected, planned for or can go up against? Perhaps so. In a column by Rachel Oswald on Wednesday titled “Access to Palin,” she seems to think that the American people are “entitled” to more information about Mrs. Palin. What about the American people taking responsibility for themselves and finding the information they so desire?
Considering the quality of most media, it is probably best to find the information for myself rather than to believe what I read or hear in the media. I will not go point to point with Ms. Oswald as I feel she is jumping too readily on Sarah Palin, given the fact that Palin has been on the Republican ticket for, at the time of this writing, less than two weeks and she is only spewing that which has already been “in the news.”
Oswald is putting Palin in the position of president so I would rightfully figure she is comparing her to Obama. Given that, I figure Sarah Palin has 19 months to go up against the liberal media and when she does state her position on foreign policy, she has the right to change her mind…maybe even a couple of times.
