Palin Continues Hammering Obama on Policy and Character

Palin Continues Hammering Obama on Policy and Character

Elizabeth Holmes reports from Jacksonville, Fla., on the presidential race.

Sarah Palin continued her routine of attacks-with-a-smile Tuesday, hitting Barack Obama repeatedly at the first of her three rallies.

Unlike recent days, the Alaska governor and Republican vice-presidential candidate mixed her shots at character with hits on policy. She drew ample contrasts between him and her running mate, John McCain.

“I think that the phoniest claim yet in a campaign that’s been full of ‘em has been Barack Obama’s going to cut your taxes,” she said.

To a rowdy crowd of thousands at Jacksonville’s The Landing, Palin boasted that McCain was the best equipped to handle the current economic crisis. She promised to cut taxes, balance the federal budget and eliminate wasteful spending. And Palin also outlined her own accomplishments as a small town mayor and then as governor of Alaska.

“I eliminated personal property taxes and eliminated small business inventory taxes and annoying little things like business license renewal fees,” she said.

There was also plenty on the McCain-Palin energy policies, providing multiple opportunities for the crowd to chant “Drill Baby Drill!”—the most common refrain of late.
