McCain Grilled on The View: Sarah Palin, Abortion Stance, Obama Attack Ads, and More

Click to Read

McCain Grilled on The View: Sarah Palin, His Abortion Stance, His Obama Attack Ads, and More The ladies of The View confronted John McCain today for lying in recent attack ads. In arguably his toughest interview yet, View co-host Joy Behar asked McCain: "There are ads running from your campaign. . . . Now we know that those two ads are untrue, they are lies. And yet, you at the end of it say you approve these messages. Do you really approve these? Barbara then threw in her condemnation, by telling McCain: "You, yourself said the same thing about putting lipstick on a pig."

"You would think if you took the time to say something worth while you would. BUT...you reserve your comments for one liners and personal jabs." It's funny, because torg's comment #89 was certainly not a worthless one-liner, but rather a long and thoughtful rebuttal of your points.

Maybe one day I'll even master that caps lock thing you do so well. And normally I just let spelling and grammar stuff go, because we're all typing fast and we all make mistakes but I don't think per se ("per say") means what you think it means.

The U of Penn is IVY league but NOT known for their Pre Med studies. My father is a physician and said that Vanderbilt has a excellent program that in his opinion gives the student an honest feel as to what to expect in MED school. I didn't go there simply because my boyfriend did, that was just topping on the cake. I didn't mean IVY LEAGUE schools "per say" wrong wording. It was scholorships given to women of color going on to a higher level of education. It didn't necessarily have to be at one of the 8 Ivys. Although one scholarship was specifically from the University that she attended. I'm not going to get into a pissing match over this. Most scholarships that are given to Black Americans, stem because of their history in this country dating back to slavery. That's just a known fact. If you don't believe this then that's your opinion. Why do you think that blacks receiving reparations was attempted to go to the Supreme court? Because of the way that slavery has affected their ability to achieve the same things in life as any other average American. Just because you go to an Ivy school doesn't mean that your education is better. Like I said, I was accepted to one, but for me, it wasn't a good choice in what I wanted to study. If it had been business then U of Penn here I come, but business was not on my agenda.

See, that's the beauty of the internet. It's all right there for us to take a look at. Let's do an instant replay!
TORGELSON, it had nothing to do what school she went to, it was offered as a cash payout to a woman of color with a certain grade point average, it had nothing to do with IVY LEAGUE SCHOOLS.
And yet just a few comments ago, you say...
She received 3 separate "scholarships" that were reserved for African American women going to IVY league schools.
Hmm. Oh, and regarding this...
and whoever made the comment about me not going to an IVY league school and tried to sound condescending while doing so...LOL, I was accepted to the University of Pennsylvania, OH WAIT, THAT'S AN IVY LEAGUE SCHOOL!!!
Again, beauty of the internet, you can scroll right up and see I made that comment! You said the scholarships, or, excuse me, "scholarships," that went to Michelle wouldn't have gone to you because you're not black. But you said they were for being black and going to any Ivy League school. So, I was just further supporting your notion that you wouldn't qualify for them because one, the reason you listed of not being black, and two, my supporting reason, because you don't attend an Ivy League school. (Oh, who am I kidding. I was just being smug and pointing out you don't go to an Ivy League. Sorry, couldn't resist with that opening.)
I just want to understand it, because how can we keep teaching new generations that they should be strong and proud, yet you have many who still expect "help" and "handouts" for something that happened over 100 yrs ago.
I'm pretty sure scholarships aren't given to black students mostly due to slavery, which I assume is what you are referring to as happening over 100 years ago. I don't personally give out scholarship money, but I'm guessing those who do and choose to give it to black people do so more because of current conditions, like white median incomes being 60% higher than black median incomes or the fact that a young black man in the U.S. is more likely to go to prison than to graduate from college. And don't even get me started on turning down an Ivy League education to go to the same college as your boyfriend.

Please Dream Sugar, wake up..matter of fact, several of you need to wake up. I'm not whining at all about scholarships. :oy: My brother had a totally free education (at WestPoint), that's not really a scholarship but it works the same round about way. I'm not opposed to scholarships and I don't know how one of you genius' came up with that conclusion :oy: Here we go again with people jumping on ONE comment without really knowing what the conversation was about. I honestly hate having to take little bloggers by the hand and telling them to go back so they know what's going on so they are up to speed about what's being said...If you're going to comment, then read it all and know what you're commenting on before you blab a bunch of ignorant nonsense. I had mentioned a few things about M. Obama and someone said what I said about how her education was paid for was wrong. I was coming back with NO I'M NOT WRONG. I know for a fact she had 3 (if not more) scholarships. I even said there was nothing wrong with that and I would do it too but it wasn't offered to me because considering the type of scholarships they were, It didn't apply to me. I wasn't black. TORGELSON, it had nothing to do what school she went to, it was offered as a cash payout to a woman of color with a certain grade point average, it had nothing to do with IVY LEAGUE SCHOOLS. I have my education paid for, so I don't really care about who gets what scholarship. I full well know about scholarships. I had several offered to me from a few different colleges and whoever made the comment about me not going to an IVY league school and tried to sound condescending while doing so...LOL, I was accepted to the University of Pennsylvania, OH WAIT, THAT'S AN IVY LEAGUE SCHOOL!!! I didn't go because Vanderbilt has a better pre-med program and my boyfriend was also accepted there. The comment was started because people were saying I was a racist (I still don't know how they came up with that) but I brought up the scholarship thing, because if we are going to talk racism, then how fair is it that someone gets something just because of the color of their skin? If it were reversed and only a white person could receive a particular scholarship due to white skin, then there would be outrages all over the country. I do not get the double standard and I want to know what justifies it. If it's the history of slavery, then that was a long long time ago. How can a generation begin to get stronger and not feel victimized when over and over again a certain ethnic group is made to feel separated from all the other groups, and mostly it's their own doing. I just want to understand it, because how can we keep teaching new generations that they should be strong and proud, yet you have many who still expect "help" and "handouts" for something that happened over 100 yrs ago. Its laughable that DreamSugar thinks I'm bitter over a scholarship. She's one of the ones who had to chime in but didn't know what the convo was about. Everyone else just sort of jumped on the bandwagon instead of using intelligence and seeing that I wasn't bitter about her education or who paid for it.

Do they have scholarships for shorter than average, slightly dyslexic, near sighted, double jointed, left handed Norwegians? Cause that definitely would've come in handy when I was getting my degree in Biology...

Scholarships aren't the same as a government hand out. You work for scholarships. You apply for them. It isn't a free ride. You have to earn them in some way. Harm, My school had a scholarship for Norwegian descendants. My cousin won it.

Is that was this is all about -- you're bitter about scholarships??? Well unlike you who has her parent's help -- I didn't -- I'm paying it all back by myself and I went to college twice to get 2 different degrees. I'll be paying until I'm 47 years of age. I didn't qualify for any scholarships due to my parents income level (although I NEVER saw any of it). I have no idea what you're whinnying about -- but it sounds ridiculous.

People receive scholarships for cheerleading, athletics, studying to become male teachers and nurses, or even for being a C student. There are scholarships given out by farmers unions, women's organizations, corporations. Why wouldn't there be scholarships to help minority students?

I know what pre-med is. And I honestly didn't mean you were saying it was your major, just reminded me of all those obnoxious people who would throw it out there in college because they thought it made them seem smart when it really just means you've probably signed up for a bunch of bio classes. I knew a girl who said she was "double majoring in pre-law and pre-med" and it always bugged me. So, not directed at you, just off on a tangent. But, to address you directly, there are seriously like a gajillion scholarships. There are scholarships for people who are exceptionally tall, for virgins, for lefties, for skateboarders, for people good at playing marbles, for single women who live on campus and don't own a car at the University of North Carolina. I'm guessing, if you applied yourself, you could also pay for college with scholarships. But you don't have to since your mom and dad are paying. Also, regarding "She received 3 separate "scholarships" that were reserved for African American women going to IVY league schools...but I wasn't black, so those scholarships did not apply to me." You also don't go to an Ivy league school, so they wouldn't have applied to you anyways.

Well I've taken advantage of every scholarship known to man. You can bet your ass if there were scholarships out there that benefited descendants of vikings I would've taken advantage of that. If you have a problem with scholarships tailored for minorities your anger should really be aimed at the people responsible for those scholarships and not the people that are just trying to get an education anyway they can.

She received 3 separate "scholarships" that were reserved for African American women going to IVY league schools. How else would you say it then? I mean, she didn't even pay half her tuition. I'm not saying that there is anything wrong with that, I would have done it if I could, but I wasn't black, so those scholarships did not apply to me. PreMed is what you say when you're planning to go to medical school (I didn't know we were being so technical) I majoring in Biology (feel better?) You have to take your Pre-Med courses before you're accepted into a medical school and Vanderbilt has one of the best PRE-MED schools around. No Imabeliever you didn't say all those things to me, but others did, and I was throwing it all into one comment. Sorry if you took it that way. I didn't get snappy until the other person commented on McCain's "frozen face". I wasn't talking to anyone in particular until that comment came out and it was directed towards me. Yes it was mean and unnecessary but oh well it's a blog and no one here is free without some immaturity now and then.

I always wonder about "pre-med." Half the people I know who started out as pre-med ended up with a different path by graduation. Also, I hated when people said they were majoring in pre-med or pre-law, because that's not actually major.
