    Todd Palin didn't speak long during a quick stop in Allegheny County on Saturday, but the husband of vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said enough to rouse loud cheers at a rally of fellow hunters and gun enthusiasts.

    Nearly 80 outdoorsmen burst into applause when the avid sportsman pledged the Republican ticket headed by Sen. John McCain would support "our core values."

    "Make sure you bring your hunting and fishing buddies to the polls to vote," he told the group at the Pitcairn-Monroeville Sportsmen's Club in North Versailles.


    Palin, dubbed Alaska's First Dude by his governor wife, characterized Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic nominee, as not supportive of the Second Amendment's guarantee of "a right to bear arms in this country."

    "Senator Obama has said we cling to our guns because we are bitter," Palin said, referencing a controversial comment Obama made about Pennsylvania voters in the spring primary.

    Recent polls show Obama with a double-digit lead over McCain in Pennsylvania. Obama has said he supports an individual's right to bear arms, but subject to common sense regulation, like background checks.

    Noting the Republican ticket has been endorsed by the National Rifle Association, Palin urged McCain-Palin backers to push hard in the closing weeks of the campaign with the "get-out-the-vote message."

    A champion snowmobiler, Palin wore a black-and-gray Iron Dog jacket. Iron Dog is the 2,000-mile race across the Alaskan wilderness that Palin has won four times. Last year, he won despite driving the last 400 miles with a broken arm.

    Palin has been in the middle of the controversy involving his former brother-in-law, a state trooper whom Sarah Palin may have tried to have fired. Early this month, the Alaskan legislature found the governor had abused her power in the case. Todd Palin, the legislative report said, was allowed to use state resources as part of the effort to have Trooper Michael Wooten dismissed.

    Palin did not make himself available for interviews.

    He told supporters that his wife has been tasked to help with energy issues if McCain wins the White House. Palin said she is "excited about that opportunity, coming from Alaska where we have an abundance of coal, oil and gas that she's familiar with."

    Obama spokeswoman Allison Price said the Democrat "will always support our Second Amendment rights and uphold the Supreme Court's decision on our Constitutional right to own guns and defend ourselves."


    Obama received the endorsement of the American Hunters and Shooters Association, an organization committed to advancing common sense gun policy initiatives and supporting the right to keep and bear arms, Price noted.


    Jeff Moran, 44, of North Huntingdon, a board member at the sportsmen's club, said McCain's unquestionable support of gun-owner rights is a key reason for backing the Republican.

    "He's pro-Second Amendment. He always has been, and there is no doubt in my mind about that," said Moran, an ardent deer hunter.

    Earlier in the day, Palin was greeted by a crowd of about 175 volunteers and well-wishers inside and out of GOP headquarters on Maple Street in Greensburg, where he shook hands for about 30 minutes.

    "I appreciate all of your help," Palin told the volunteers manning the headquarters' phones. "Our family is very appreciative. It's been a great ride for us."

    He was to attend the Penn State-Michigan football game in State College.

    Every gun owner, not only hunters, in MY state, PA. should make sure to vote for John McCain and Sarah Palin.

    Sad that a few care more about THEIR guns and THEIR guns only, than they do about standing up for OUR rights. Like I told them before. When obama loses and our rights aren't infringed apon, they don't have to thank the rest of us.

    Just be on THEIR way.

    NRA-PVF Endorses John McCain and Sarah Palin for President and Vice-President

    Thursday, October 09, 2008


    Fairfax, VA. - The National Rifle Association's (NRA) Executive Vice President, Wayne LaPierre, and NRA Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) Chairman Chris W. Cox are traveling to Pittsburgh, Pa., Springfield, Mo., Colorado Springs, Colo. and Reno, Nev. today for a series of press conferences endorsing Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin for President and Vice President respectively in the November 4 election.

    "John McCain has more than two decades of pro-gun and pro-hunting votes in Congress. He has stood time and again to preserve our Second Amendment freedom and our rich hunting heritage," said LaPierre. "Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin have earned the NRA-PVF's endorsement and we will encourage gun owners, hunters and anyone who values freedom to vote McCain-Palin on November 4."

    "NRA members and gun owners will not allow Barack Obama to hide his radical record of opposition to our constitutional rights," said Cox. "Obama has voted to make self-defense with a firearm in the home illegal, has voted to ban the most commonly owned hunting shotguns, has voted to ban commonly owned hunting ammunition, and has supported a 500% tax increase on guns and ammunition. We will remind voters every single time he pretends that his anti-gun record doesn't exist."

    John McCain voted for the landmark Firearms Owners Protection Act and the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, opposed the failed Clinton Gun Ban, and voted against mandatory waiting periods, national gun registration, and bans on hunting ammunition. He also signed the historic congressional amicus brief in the case of Heller v. District of Columbia, holding that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms -- a brief that Senator Obama refused to sign.

    Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin is a hunter, gun owner and NRA Life Member. Gov. Palin has been a consistent and outspoken supporter of the constitutional rights of law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen

    Todd Palin is a man's man. It is no wonder that he makes liberal metrosexuals feel like they have 2 bellybuttons. LOL. It is men like Todd Palin that built this Country. It is the little parasites like Trappy that suck it dry.

    SUCCEED - (SUCCEEDING)

    1 a: to come next after another in office or position or in possession of an estate ; especially : to inherit sovereignty, rank, or title b: to follow after another in order
    2 a: to turn out well b: to attain a desired object or end
    3 obsolete : to pass to a person by inheritance
    transitive verb
    1: to follow in sequence and especially immediately
    2: to come after as heir or successor

    1 and 2 are what McCain/Palin plan to do.

    SOCIALISM

    1: any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods
    2 a: a system of society or group living in which there is no private property b: a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state
    3: a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done

    #3 what Obama plans to do. Sounds like what he told Joe the Plumber.

    Well Trappy is does NOT matter what you want. You are not old enough to vote so you have NO say who is or is not elected. After listening to your gibberish for so long I can only say I am glad kids your age cannot vote.
