    These supporters of Sarah Palin must know something I don't know, if so please enlighten me.  Otherwise all I have seen from this women is incompetence.  In my opinion, this women might be the most unqualified presidential hopeful in the history of the United States of America.  We did this already people, with Bush...remember?  I guess I have to remember what country I'm in.  Some people in this country still think the 'Federal Reserve' is a part of the United States Government.

    Give me a good reason why she is qualified.  Is it because you like her hair?  You like her glasses?  Is it because she's very religious and so are you?  Is it because she is a women?  Is it because she's the underdog? (people love to root for the underdog).  What the hell is the reason?  I guarantee you that beyond a vague idiotic responses like, "duh, because she will do good," no one can come up with one.  On the other hand there are plenty concise, logical, and relevant reasons that most people can recite in their sleep as to why this joke should not be taken seriously.  Come on Palin supporters, lets see what "dontcha kno!"

      I don't want her for President. But who would you suggest , Hillary ? She is becoming quite the warmonger. And I don't equate the occasional verbal gaffe to all out incompetence. You bought the crap the liberal media feeds you apparently. At least I would tend to believe she would not pledge millions to Pakistan.

        Forget the liberal media, this women was asked questions by everyone in the book.  Fool me once shame on me...hopefully you know the rest.  You must be one of those people who thinks that if someone makes the same mistake over and over and over again that it is still a mistake.  You have to realize everyone can not do everything.  And on another not, have you realized that there are other names in the hat?  How come you just named two of the females?  What about Ron Paul?  Oh you probably don't know who that is because YOU are the one who only pays attention to "the liberal media" as you referred to it.  And what do you mean you would "tend to  believe she would not pledge millions to Pakistan?"  You are supporting a person and you aren't even sure about her motives or political beliefs.  Now I see, the people who support her know  as much about politics as she does.

          This critique is quite laughable from someone who is using a plural in a statement where a singular belongs. Then please tell me why the NY Times and Washington Post felt the need to recruit their readers in order to look for dirt on the woman.And as of 2 PM they have found nada. Meanwhile  Hillary gave the green light on us bombing Libya and most likely Yemen since she is Secretary of State.
          And Nancy Pelosi votes for a bill that has to pass so we can see what is in it. And Debbie Wasserman Schultz is the best friend of Wall Street. So when you finally get brains enough to do a little research get back to me. And please tell me which questions that Palin had to answer that you refer too.

            Tony are you serious?  Go check out my hub, the one with the big picture of Palin on the cover of Vogue Magazine.  You must not have been paying attention during the last presidential election.  When she doesn't know the answer to a question (which is most of the time) she will do two things.

            1. come up with something that is totally irrelevant to the question being asked.
            2. Simply say, I will get back to you.  How can you not name one publication that you read?

            You are also doing what she does by changing the subject and avoiding my question.  I asked you to give me a good reason why she is qualified.  I didn't ask you, how my grammar is, I didn't ask you about Hillary, I didn't ask you about Pelosi, I asked you about Palin.  Just answer the question without trying to divert attention away from the question.  JUST ANSWER

      palin should even be considered by the teaparty.  i can't believe we're talking about a person of her caliber in this context.  conservatives deserve much more than she has to offer.  i'm liberal, but have an appreciation for intelligence.  she appears to me to be anti-intellectual, condescending, mean-spirited and small minded.  which probably is ok, but she's noisy about it.

This has nothing to do with right, left, conservative or Liberal. It has to do with someone not knowing the basics to run an office let alone be Vice President or God forbid President. I mean she made millions just taking jibberish, you ever heard this women taking about something? it could be about anything and the women butchers it. Man God Bless her soul shes making money and touring the country and I have nothing against her, let the people following her and keep giving her their money, but as far as President Hell no!

    First off, unlike our current president, she has been a mayor and a governor. She was duly elected to those offices. Those are executive offices. That's more experience than Barsck. Need we rehash his completely disastrous visit to the UK lately? His protocol chief is still employed why? I am really unsure why anyone would reelect him. Maybe that's a much better question than why we should elect Sarah.

    Not to mention she isn't even running.

      Okay, she was the Mayor and Governor IN ALASKA lol Leave it up to her Katie Couric interview and most of us have the impression that no one over there reads books!  Come on you have to do better than that.  Sonni Bono(R.I.P) was a mayor too, so was Jerry Springer...does that qualify them as well?  Sadly I would choose either of them over her any day.  They can at least speak English properly, and they can both read.

      As for the rest of your statement, it's irrelevant.  The job that Barry has done has nothing to do with her qualifications, jeez.  Anyone of you Palin nuts ever been to college?  Do you know what a thesis statement is?  JUST ANSWER THE QUESTION...stop with the unnecessary Barry bashing.  He was a Senator...remember.  I would take a Senator from  Illinois who can speak proper English over a Mayor and or Governor of Alaska who makes you scratch your head every time you hear her speak any day.  Also, she is a hopeful, so what is your point that she isn't running?  She is waiting to see how many idiots will back her up.

      Just because someone holds a political office doesn't make them reliable. What even makes that more fun, is we now have people like my states governor who has decided that he can remove any elected official from office at his own will, and replace them with an unelected official at his leisure, and most likely someone from his own party.

      And, Sarah Palin proves that she is not reliable, by quitting her elected job out of stress, when really all she wanted to do was cash in on her newly found fame, and double her income by taking a job at FOX, who have more one sided views than the church.

      My vote for Sarah Palin would be HELL NO!!!

Oh thats is all you all can do, is attack my score because I show up here once every 6 months or so and still stand against all you leant leftist Socialist Democrat Liberals. It is very clear that you cannot win the debates , so it is attack attack attack. So predictable. All of you all are so readable as Leftists go.

            And I am not ashamed in the least of my score. My life is not this site. And my writiings sell just fine in the real world. I am the one sitteing here that doesn't have to work another day in my life because I have sold enough books to live free and clear.

            And lets see... I show up here 2 times for a month or so each in the year I have been on here, (untill the mods get mad and throw me off because I make libs look foolish and they cannot stand strong opinions supported by facts), and I still have 1000 + reads on my profile. With no backlinks or promotion at all.

            So whatever... people. Let me know when you all feel like being schooled in the facts some more. Especially you, Doug. It is always a laugh to correct you and your lil friends.

              Nobody cares about your hubscore. True. But with 1000+ visits to your profile and a score like that, one could get the idea that your opinions aren't too popular. Glad you aren't counting on them for income.

              That you idolize that scumbag McCarthy and reject anyone to the left of Attilla the Hun makes you the poster child for conservatism - to liberals.

        You'll have to clarify those two points, because I saw things differently.

        1. Osama fiasco. Really, a fiasco? Our military killed its #1 target for the past decade, and somehow that's being twisted into a failure on the part of the president? Ask the Seals how they feel about that mission. They'll tell you the president was right to not involve Pakistan with the planning, he was right to not release photos, and he was right to have the body disposed of at sea. The morbid curiosity of some Americans should not trump national security.

        2. Birth certificate circus. Donald Trump, Michelle Bachmann, and a bunch of other folks from the GOP freakshow make a big deal about Obama's birth certificate. He ignores them, then ignores them some more. Eventually the long form of his certificate is released to the public. The issue dies.

        And so did most of his detractors, when they pointed out that the Queen didn't drink Obama's toast to the Queen. If they knew anything about etiquette, they'd know that one doesn't drink when others are toasting one; it's considered immodest.

    She has a keen knowledge of the founding fathers and what they meant when they wrote the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.  She wants to take this country back to the way the founding fathers wanted it to be.  She wants all to be prosperous But without govt meddling - as this country once was.  She wants free market capitalism as this country once had.  She wants a better educational system as this country doesn't have. 

    Maybe she doesn't understand world politics as many would want her to, but once America regets strength, all will be lookin at us. 

    One of the Major reasons that I and others really like her is that she uses commonsense which is very lacking in congress by the majority.  The reason people fear her is That she uses commonsense and talks Plain.

    Remember - back in the 1920's a lot of educated types didn't believe it was possible to fly solo accross the Atlantic - but a commonsensical Lindberg did it.

      She also wants to change history by a re-telling of the story of Paul Revere, and having the story changed to hers and others views in school books. One of the many re-writings of history some of these nuts are out to accomplish. The same kind of re-writing of history that the Natzis tried, to prove that the white race was supreme over all others, unless of course you were a white jew, gay, or any other variation they didn't like.

      A lot of educated types also created the atomic bomb, and look where that got us. It's all big talk, just like Reagan, who really had other people pulling his strings.

        The emails have been released, and they show being the governor of the state of Alaska is even more boring than anyone could have imagined. The state pretty much runs on autopilot. They've got a small population, an abundance of valuable natural resources that put a lot of money in state coffers, and a huge amount of support from the federal government. It was that way for decades before Palin, and it will be that way for a long time after her.

            I don't know what big revelation people were expecting from the emails. The only thing I learned is that she always writes like she's using Twitter and there isn't much going on in Alaska that doesn't involve extracting oil from the ground and moving it elsewhere. The most shocking email I've seen so far involves Sarah agreeing to bake brownies for a group of high schoolers visiting the governor's mansion.

            The fact is, many of the important executive decisions regarding Alaska are made by the President, not the governor of the state. 65% of the state's land is owned by the federal government. The governor's job is basically to determine how to redistribute (oh shoot, is that a socialist word?) the abundance of funds gained from the oil industry and federal spending.

      Explain to me what Palin knows about energy, or in better words what her "handlers" have told her.  I don't like the sneaky, conniving Obama either but he isn't as dense as Palin.  If those end up being our two choices I think I will be moving to the moon.

      John, If those are the only 2 choices, things look bleak. But I agree, if we had to, I would pick Palin ovedr O-man

        I would love to see Palin run...she is hilarious to me. I have seldom seen anyone sink into the reality show limelight as much as Palin and her family. If she won...which I couldn't really imagine, it would be something that we deserve for allowing ourselves to sink into the lowest common denominator style of thinking.

    I THOUGHT YOU SAID THAT YOU'RE MOVING TO THE MOON.I guess it will be on a soviet rocket.Your vote will be missed!

    As governor of her state she took on her party and the oil industry, she beat them both.
    Check it out, surely the press could have reported '' fair and balanced '' information.

    I would vote for her over any Liberal Socialist/Democrat or Progressive, in this nation. Matter of fact, make that on the world stage.
