Top Dem Endorses McCain....Dems turn on this major dem fundraiser!!!!

I was working out yesterday at X-sport in Saint Charles.  While running during my grueling grind, I saw Wolf Blitzer interviewing Lady Forester de Rothschild.  I switched the channel only to hear that she endorsed Republican presidential nominee John McCain on Wednesday.

Speaking to members of the media at the Capitol Hill Club, Rothschild denied that Clinton had any influence over her endorsement decision, stating that the two have not spoken since before the Democratic National Convention in August. Rothschild said her endorsement decision was a personal one and one that came after consideration of the vice presidential picks and convention performances.

"I really think that they [McCain and Palin] will bring the bold, bipartisan, centrist change we need in Washington," said Rothschild.  Wow I thought....another well spoken, educated intelligent woman joining the ranks of McCain/Palin.  Wild actually. 

Rothschild went on to cite specifically McCain's record in the Senate as a primary influence in her decision. She said in such an important election, where economic and foreign policy issues are on the forefront, she considers McCain the best choice.  "John McCain will look for the best solutions to America's problems. He is not an ideologue and he is not beholden to special interests."  Rothschild said she hopes her decision to publicly endorse McCain will give like-minded Democrats the confidence to follow suit.

Rothschild says that Palin's conservative beliefs don't concern her.  "I am pro-choice and I am sick and tired of Democratic party using the choice issue using it as a noose around womens' necks," Rothschild said. "Bush has been president for eight and we still have every right to choose what we do to our bodies."

Holy cow....was this wild.  While the announcement may raise eyebrows, those following Rothschild through the course of the primary are less than shocked by her deference. While still working on Clinton's behalf, Rothschild said of Obama to CNN in July, "frankly I don't like him. I feel like he is an elitist. I feel like he has not given me reason to trust him."

During her tenure as a Clinton fundraiser, Rothschild brought in more than $100,000 for the campaign. A lifelong Democrat, Rothschild served on the DNC's Platform Committee, a position she said on Wednesday that she will now abdicate.

Still, her party loyalty is not lost. Quoting Reagan, Rothschild mimed, "I didn't leave the Democratic party, the Democratic party left me."  Like I said earlier...she's a bold powerful woman.  She sure has a lot of guts.  And, she is still maintaining some of her liberal mentality. When asked if McCain really invented the Blackberry, Rothschild retorted without hesitation, "No, that was Al Gore."

Blitzer said "you're going to get it from a lot of people on the left.  Rothschild said....I've been getting it from you for're far worse Wolf."  Wow.....and the story moves on.  It'll be interesting to see where all of the fallout lands.  Kudos for a strong american woman who doesn't let a party dictate the way she needs to vote.  I'm a patriot myself.  I love when she said she loves her country more than her party.  I think that she's a patriot as well.

Larry..... I guess you are my news.... considering that I hardly watch it except for sports and financial updates.  You gotta love this... we need more people like her in politics. To go with the best choice and not because it's their political party.

Larry- Rothschild  is a true patriot. Country first! Country before party. This is a crucial election and women like this who take a stand are brave and I am very proud of her for taking a stand. There is no question of what McCain has accomplished, just like she said, in the Senate, moving across party lines, putting the people first. Sarah has done the same. And I am sick and tired of the left over 60's bra burining feminists dissing the rest of us women. We only have women's rights when those rights are what they believe.  I like to say the sweet revenge is when Sarah, a woman goes to the top and does it without the help of the feminist movement.

Larry:  It seems pretty strange that anyone named Lady Forester de Rothchild can be calling anyone an elitist.  It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the next week or so.

I saw this, too. And thought, "Oh boy, another successful woman making a statement...she's going to get trashed!"

Rothschild is going to get hammered by Obamaniacs. Just as surely as The Donald (Trump) is going to get trashed for endorsing McCain. He, too, was a Hillary supporter.

Glad I wasn't the only one thinking the same thing.

Larry, I did not see the newscast as I am not one who watches much TV. Interesting article though. I do agree that this is an important decision and we need OUR BEST AND BRIGHTEST to run this country and stop with all the bipartisan bull shit!!!

Nestor & Katerina....just great points.  Thanks for your 2 bucks here!

Fran....we'll see.  Time is the true measure here.

Karen Anne....she says that she was working class american and that elitism is a state of mind.  She says that she's not an elitist, but that he is!  According to her...Obama has the elitist mentality.  She said that she's never left the working class.

Pacita...she's an inspiration to me...

Wow! That is big news! I think that when it comes down to it all, Americans really have to consider who is going to be best for America.  It's a shame that Palin has been looked down on.  I feel like the people that have bashed her are really defeating the feminist movement yet they are the most feminist of them all. How ironic!  It's time for all Americans to get beyond the parties and really ask who can best lead this country.  Wisdom and experience are key here.  It's a shame but I have several friends in battleground states that have never voted before. They are registering this year after getting educated on women's suffrage and a fierce need to get involved in exercising the right to vote.  It's a shame that they haven't before but I'm glad they are finally getting with the program.

Michele....Feminists should be proud of Saran...but they are throwing her under the bus as if she's some housewife sitting at home being dominated and controlled by her husban.  Couldn't be any further from the truth.  She's in a great marriage, has a great family and very well may be a 2nd in command in the strongest nation in the free world.  They are so wrong.

James....very interesting to say the least.

I watched her talking about this on Fox news.  I'm not happy with the way that McCain is allowing his campaign to be run... but I REALLY want to see the debates.  And I hope they find someone that doesn't have a man-crush on Obama to ask the questions.
