    Debate is open to officaly declared candidates, and also to those thinking about it?  So why not debate then?

    You have to have good knowledge of real issues and an offical position concerning, as well as Ideas to Debate openly on.

    She is offering her opinion all over the Country, so why not debate it?

    your thouhts and opinions would be interesting if you folks care to discuss.  Would like to read them.

    Debate requires a little bit of intelligence, which I don't think she is up for. Not to mention, if she isn't having her lines fed to her, then I don't think she could carry a serious conversation, over a broad range of topics. lol

    I don't think she has any intention of running so why should she take up space at the debate? She's doing what she likes and as long as people go out to see her she'll continue. I don't understand why everyone (the left) is so obsessed with her. She will most likely just campaign for whoever the nominee ends up being, and they'll be happy to have her because she brings a certain number of votes along with her support.

        What serious canadates... the Progressives fox and the RNC would like us to vote for. huh What a joke. There will be no Progressive on the ticket this year. Americans have seen the game played by the liberal democrat and Progressives over the last 100 years.

        We are taking our Party back from the Progressives and they can re-join their Leftists brethren in the democrat party. Will will return to the days of the radical republicans and to hell with Teddy and woodrow and all the infiltrators.

          Like McCain? While I would obviously prefer him to Obama, I don't like all that mushy compromise stuff. Take a stand and stand by it!

          I seriously think Palin is moving to Arizona so that she can run to replace him when he retires, and he will endorse her. That is her only path to the White House as far as I can see.

And I don't think the Tea Party is trying to ruin the candidates because whoever is the nominee they will end up supporting. I really don't think it will be Bachmann, and I pray it isn't. She's an idiot.

            Why? Because the media makes jokes of them. Would you want to espouse your political beliefs and me ridiculed and mocked because the media considered you a bigot and a neanderthal? Not many have the stomach for it, and even Fox pays no attention to the more conservative candidates. So where do they go for attention? Only the debates I guess.

      Just finished sticking my finger down my throat after watching the debate.
      Gawd, what a horror show.
      I have to give it to Evan G. Rogers. He's been saying for months (if not years) that Ron Paul is the one to watch. In my mind, he was the only one up there who stood out and made sense. He's a class act!!

      With Michelle B semi-officially in the race, I don't think Palin will run. But I wouldn't be at all surprised if she wants the Veep slot again. Although the idea of moving to Arizona (where, "coincidentally" Bristol bought a house!) makes a lot of sense, too.

          Probably so, TMMason.
          I saw a picture of Ms. Giffords on the news tonight.
          She looks like a completely different woman.
          God bless her.

          But aside from starting and ending with the letter "a" like Alaska, wouldn't Arizona be something of a shock for Sarah Palin? Oh wait -- are there grizzlies in the Grand Canyon???

            KK Trainorposted 5 years ago in reply to this

            Yes, Giffords looks good. And those pics were before her skull was replaced, so she probably looks even better now.

            I am pretty sure Palin's plan is to replace McCain. He would endorse her when he's ready to retire, which may be soon. She already bought a house there, separate from the one Bristol bought. That's my prediction at least.

        The only one in the debate who didn't resort to simply insulting Obama, who didn't resort to mindless rhetoric, who didn't have to preface everything with "that was taken out of context", and who answered each question with a consistent political philosophy.

        I especially loved his response to "should we listen to our generals"

        Here they are... lolllllll

        On January 21st, 2009, his very first day in office, Barack Obama implemented and signed into law Executive Order 13489. The Executive Order that states that only the records he chooses to be made public will be released?

        This is the subject that was at the absolute top of his agenda?

        He has completely hidden his past. The Obama records which have not been released include;

        • Passport records

        • Obama kindergarten records

        • Punahou School records

        • Occidental College records

        • Columbia University records

        • Columbia thesis

        • Harvard Law School records

        • Harvard Law Review articles

        • University of Chicago scholarly articles

        • Illinois State Bar Association records

        • Illinois State Senate records/schedules(said to be lost)

        • Medical records

        • Obama/Dunham marriage license

        • Obama/Dunham divorce documents

        • Soetoro/Dunham marriage license

        • Adoption records

        • Birth Certificate

        So far, no one really knows who this person who calls himself Obama really is.

                As far as those that do risk the life of the mother, then it is her and her husbands, or the fathers, choice. And I do mean the husband or father of the child choice also.

                It is amazing that women throw away babies and the fathers can do nothing about it. He has as much Right to his child as the woman, and that needs to change.

                If you do not want to get pregnant, then do not have sex, or use birth control. There is no excuse in this day and age to get pregnant when you do not want a child, the world is full of birth control.

        Even so, if you don't want to be 'forced to give birth against your will', then use some protection and don't get pregnant. Who doesn't know that? Maybe school children who are having sex at the age of 12, but you know better, as do most of those having abortions.

        Self defense. And that is not murder. There is a difference between killing and murder, ask a lawyer. You can kill someone and not be guilty of murder in the least, and then you can commit murder. Even the commandment specifies murder, not killing.

        And your right to privacy is gone thanx to Obama... see the new FBI rules, and the Patriot act ole Joe Biden claims he wrote.

        And the Constitution does not talk about Pregnancy... but it does protect the Right to Life, and that could be viewed as saying NO to abortion.

        Simple huh?

      The main point is this: you don't have a right to end a human life and sorry but the baby growing in your belly is a human life.  Now with that said, I am willing to "compromise" by going with medical science.  Medical Science says a person is dead when there is no brain activity...thus you are brain dead.  So with that, would it not be logical to conclude that if there is brain activity, then you are an alive human?  With that said, there is brain activity in a "fetus" within the end part of the first trimester.  So as for the Constitution, it says all humans (paraphrasing) have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.  Aborting a brain active child is murder and what do we do with murderers?  We deprive them of their rights by putting them in jail.  "nuff said.

        Abortion is the termination of a pregnancy by the removal or expulsion of a foetus or embryo from the uterus before the fetus is viable.

      TM. do you have the same problem with Bush's signing statements? I can see how you would have a problem keeping some information private and not have a problem with a president placing himself above the law. Must be some of that medicine and the loopiness you mentioned at work here, huh?

      You mentioned Obama's birth certificate, it appears you need to update what ever you are copying and pasting from.

      I also feel there is a difference in not releasing records and delibrately changing official government forms, ie Bush's service record and those he served with while awol from the Guard.

        I told you Bush and his ilk are the treaonous Progressives, Stump. That should speak for itself. I keep explaining to all, there are Socialists, Liberals, Democrats, Progressives, Conservatives, and Libertarians. I am a Conservative.

        And those Nat guard Records you mention were shown to be forged. Whats his face looked like an idiot and lost his respectability and credibility for his actins in propagating them. It appears you need an update.

        And I don't care about his BC... but it was in his executive order, therefore I mentioned it.

        Signing statements and line-item vetoes are a testament to tyranny in our government.

        Just a reminder for those who have forgotten how our federal government was set up:

        Article 1 Section 1: "All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives."

        Thus legislation from the Supreme Court is illegal, and so is legislation from the Executive branch.
