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.
Forget the liberal media, this women was asked questions
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.
I like this little article, I am like you, how in the blue hell does anybody think shes qualified for anything? I am dumfounded. 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!
I'm not in my right mind....
My right mind went on vacation so I'm voting for Sarah Palin.
I will let you know when I find them, since Sen Joe McCarthy is not available to run
Thank goodness for that. We don't need power-mad fascists in the Whitehouse.
Why would anyone in their right mind want Sarah Palin as President?
Is this a trick question?
what would the trick be?
Right mind and Sarah Palin in the same sentence.
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.
I think she is doing what she is, simply to distract the Left and let the others get a lil breathing room on the right.
As a resident of the UK I missed his completely disastrous visit to the UK, do tell please.
Okay, she was the Mayor and Governor IN ALASKA 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.
Heck, Sonny Bono is dead and I think I'd rather vote for him.*
(Something similar happened in Missouri with John Ashcroft, who was defeated in his senate campaign by a corpse.)
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 man!!! These are facts right here people!!!! Go do the research. WHat do you have to say about that?
Red I do know the rest of that quote. fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again." —President George W. Bush, Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 17, 2002
I am beginning to think that Dubya had a sex change and his name to Sarah Palin. Perhaps they just went to the same school.
That would be the American School Systems. It is a god damn mess here. Nothing but indoctrination to Lefftist causes and immorallity.
4 is right. He knows cause he walked past a school once.
Did you notice that 4 was 10 only 24 hours ago. I figured he was at the bottom of the barrel but his hubscore is dropping like a stone. Is a negative score possible?
Just my opinion, but he doesn't like Romney for being too liberal, doesn't like Palin for being too liberal, hasn't declared on Darth Vader, but will endorse Joe McCarthy if exhumed.
Could liberals have created a better spokesman for the Tea Party?
Doug, you of all people should know that I usually tote a 1. So why the hate? 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.
By the way how have you been, Doug. Good I hope.
Hate? You flatter yourself. Scorn is the word you are after. I have a VERY short list of people I hate, and it's never included casual web acquaintances. You have to seriously hurt me or my family to rate that list. I'm just playin' Whack-a-Troll.
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.
The point of what I wrote, which you deftly skipped btw, is that touch are known by the company you keep - or the hero in your mind.
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.
Try not to get banned. Friends like you are hard to come by.
...claims to be a published author, but can't figure out spell check...many inconsistencies in the words of 4...I think he wrote one of "the" bibles.
Are you referring to leftist causes like biology and immorality like sex education and the teaching of STDs? You know, in most circles...toting an image of Joe McCarthy is considered immoral.
The more you say it, the more it keeps being not true.
OMG...classic Stump!!! Classic!!! A George W. Bush double wammy joke with a witty Sarah Palin reference relevantly attached. In two words:
Flawless Victory- Mortal Kombat
@John. The dinner with the Queen is the highlight. Not to mention trying to fake an Irish accent standing next to the president of Ireland.
Yea Barry has been doing some real idiotic stuff lately.. It's probably due to the stress of simultaneously trying to keep all his lies straight.
1. Osama fiasco
2. Birth certificate circus
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.
Oh blimey, he got confused about our etiquette, the man is obviously unfit to be president!
And isn't imitating Irish accents a national sport with you, just about every TV policeman we see over here is putting on some sort of cod Irish accent.
" he got confused about our etiquette, "
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.
answering your question direct, He.. no I do not want that crack pot as a President. She needs to grow up and become and adult, and from what she says and acts like, I do not think she will make it!!!!!!
Oh. Well next time he can blow his nose on her dress. We need to stop Deifying the man. That was whack and you know it. All you had to do was look at the queen.
If this woman ever manages to become president I'm moving to another country - seriously.
Canada is ice this time of year. I'll be sure to join you!
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.
It is the left in this country who have revised the history of this great nation through their implimentation of Cultural Marxism, and with the intent of destryongh this nation.
And that is a true bit of history. ie Frankfurt School, Critical Theory, etc.
Now that the Right wants to re-claim our history, you all cannot handle it.
Not to be offensive but, I have noticed that most Palin supporters that I see seem to be from Midwestern farm states where life, among other things, are slower than the cities where we move a little faster.
That's the "real America" according to Sarah. People from cities are second class citizens.
"She has a keen knowledge of the founding fathers..."but can't name any of them.
"She wants to take this country back to the way the founding fathers wanted it to be." Half slave and half free?
"She wants all to be prosperous But without govt meddling - as this country once was."
This mythical golden age has never existed.
"She wants free market capitalism as this country once had."
And would bring back the Gilded Age, where wealth was sent straight to the top and workers owed their souls to the company store.
"She wants a better educational system as this country doesn't have."
And proposes to destroy our educational system in order to save it.
"One of the Major reasons that I and others really like her is that she uses commonsense"
This must be a new usage of the phrase "common sense" with which I am unfamiliar.
TM, blah, blah blah, blah, blah blah.
I cannot stand that woman. And I am a fan of wolves, so having her arbitrarily kill all of them does not engender any feelings of a positive nature.
If she wrote here I wonder if her score would be higher than TMM 7 ?
I believe all she would have to do is hub her e-mails and she would blow away everyone on this site. And that seems to me to be a very supportable fact.
Yes TM wait until all those emails come out. I can't wait to see the abomination of here thoughts in text.
They are already out john. And from what I know they show nothing bad, and actually make her look good in some cases.
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.
So it couldn't be that she was actually competant. No. It must be that the state runs on auto-pilot.lollllll
Of course.... geez why didn't I think of that.
It's true...Ozzie Osbourne could probably run Alaska.
Believe it or not it does take something to run a state red. You can try, but you cannot take that away from her. i would think you would be able to give credit were credit is due. you don't have to like her, but if she did a good job or even okay, then so be it.
I do not like her myself... but I wil give credit were credit is due.
And I am speaking as the independent Conservative I am and always have been.
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.
Because they are not in there right mind
IF THE CHOICE IS EITHER BARAK '' I'' OBAMA OR SARAH PALIN, I'LL TAKE SARAH.
SHE KNOWS WHERE THE ENERGY COMES FROM , OIL AND NATURAL GAS.
She knows where she can provide good paying jobs ( without government assistance )
I seen a cartoon the other day.
Barak '' I '' Obama in his presidential limousine was wondering why the limo stopped running all of a sudden. Out of gas,nope. The driver got out to see what happened.
The wind stopped blowing and the windmill on the roof of the limo stopped moving. The same could happen if there is no sun. Well maybe he should not convert yet, keep a 5 gallon can of gas in the trunk for emergencies.Obama told us to make sure our tires are inflated properly to save gas, a brilliant idea for someone who weekly uses Air Force One plus other aircraft at a cost of $250 million each to travel out of Washington. Smog city?
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.
