Of all the things she likes about the Republican platform and McCain, Rosemary Nichols said she especially welcomes the feeling that she’s being rewarded for her hard work and prosperity.Then there is Jennifer Gaskill, who hates partisan politics, but loves it when the Republicans really stick it to the Dems.
“I’m tired of being made to feel guilty for being successful — that’s the American dream,” she said. “We need to get back to being proud to be an American, and proud to be a successful American.”
And then the capper for over-exuberance from Hal Reed, chairman of the Republican Party of Lane County:
“I’m so tired of the partisan stuff. He legitimately and honestly wants what’s best for our country and our families,” Gaskill, 39, said. “I’m with him on that.”
After Wednesday’s speech by Palin, McCain did a wonderful job of adding his story to her message, Gaskill said.
“When he got up there tonight, he came off as very presidential,” she said. “She got up there and her speech was basically, ‘Don’t mess with me.’ I think they will complement each other very, very well.”
Oregon is in play for McCain and Sarah Palin, and I want you to write that down.Consider it noted, Hal. See you in November.
