$100 bucks McCain hacks her after the debate....

Sep 29, 2008 11:12 pm

He should've never picked her.  I can't wait to watch this debate...maybe with a few beers.

"As Putin fllies over Alaska & rears his head"

He would be disappointed in all of your comments on this thread

This VP debate is going to be the greatest event since Wrestlemania I.

He should have picked Romney for VP.  As much as I like Palin I think most of us would admit she's not ready to step into the role of President if something happens (but then again neither is Biden).
 
  Hucabee for President in 2012!!!

But then again, neither is Obama!

 
Imagine Obama sitting down with Putin with TelePrompters behind Putin's head.

If McCain bought the big one today, would the republicans elevate Palin to the top of the ticket? That's would be a big NO! If her own party believes she's not ready to be at the top today, what changes between now and January?

I agree with you Stok.  I'd rather have a VP not ready who MIGHT but probably won't have to step in as President, than have the person at the top of my ticket not ready.  Obama just doesn't get it.  He doesn't understand that terrorist and countries like Iran don't sit down and talk things out, they feel that their purpose for living is to kill us.  He also doesn't get that his proposals for all these socialists new programs was already too expensive before this mess, and he still doesn't think he's going to have to scale back.

I caught a blurb on the news last night that Biden had said, "In the depression, FDR spoke to America on the TV and...yada yada yada".

 
Point is:  FDR wasn't president at the time, and there was no such thing as a TV.
 
If politicians can be successful and make stuff up on the fly, count me in.

I heard that too.  He was also recorded saying he wants to get rid of all coal production in the US.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJ55UzAsp6M  But wait, what does Obama think about coal?  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfcS1STL6WE
 
Biden puts his foot in his mount on almost a daily basis.  It'll be interesting to see what kind of trouble he gets himself into tomorrow night.

PA is a coal state? That would be news to most Pennsylvanians. Maybe you shouldn't be so critical of Biden putting his foot in his mouth?


Now Wyoming, that's a coal state.
 
Generally agree that Biden is a gas bag. Still, i can see the ocean from my friend's shore house, can I be Secretary of the Navy?
 
Again , if McCain buys the farm today, do the repubs elevate the shrilla from Wasila to the top of the ticket? Yes or no and why?

At first I read this quickly and thought you said "Palin standing up, ripping off his shirt..."  I believe that's a debate I'd actually watch.  How many swing votes would she get if she did that? 
 
It's just been one of those days.

I doubt that, considering that more than 7,500 people work in coal mines in PA. That’s more than work the mines in Wyoming. I think PA ranks in the top 4-5 coal producing states in the nation.

He’s an endless gaffe/lie machine and has been since before 1988. The only reason he doesn’t get the attention on it he deserves has probably something to do with the same reason organizations like the New York Times cares about Palin’s husband’s 22 year old DUI arrest but couldn’t care less about the groups Obama was an “organizer” for or what his real relationship with an unrepentant terrorist is.

There’s a standard that’s never been applied before, unless you want to tell me Quayle wouldn’t have been replaced had something happened to Bush Sr in 1988. I rather doubt Biden would be left on the top of the ticket if Obama were to meet his maker between now and November. I think the calls for Hillary to replace him would be overwhelming.


Personally I think the juvenile treatment Palin’s receiving from Obamatons, the people supporting an even less qualified candidate for the presidency by any realistic standard, is a classic bit of what psychologists call “projection”.

I agree with most of what she says, but it's so tough to listen to her say it.
 
That is one annoying voice and accent. I believe shrill is how Biden described her after her speech at the convention.

BG- You have all this angst about Palin (maybe she reminds you of an -ex??).  You say your veep candid. is a jackass and a gasbag, but then you give him a pass on the plagarisim, lying and stupid comments (i.e. who is prez. in 1929 and when TV was invented)

All of your uneven comments regarding Palin and this race are not in line with your other posts on other subjects.  Perhaps this "projection" theory has some merit.

 

Sep 30, 2008 10:35 pm

BG is an old liberal, you have to cut him slack. I would rather have a dead conservative tended by a moose hunter than a lively liberal whose veep usta party on Ted's sailboat. Anyway, the old East coastas who never been West can't "get" Palin - she's about the guy who sells welding supplies, not the medical resesearcher at Havad.

Sep 30, 2008 11:10 pm

You also have to keep in mind that its very difficult to predict how someone will perform as President until they are actually in that position.  The best you can do is judge someone based on their track record and political agenda.  But even using those criteria, there is no way to predict that a President will really screw up or lead the Nation out of the mess we're in now.  How many people got it wrong with Bush?

Sep 30, 2008 11:15 pm

Just in talking to some clients, they seem taken with Palin's commonality (with them). Can she take the pressure, is she a qualified manager? I will be praying for McCain's health if he is elected. Seeing some of these old puffers this week (Barney Frank, that San Francisco slumlord Pelosi) - reminds me how great those blue collar clients are - " I trust you, nine, to do the right thing with my money."

PA not a coal state? You can doubt it all you want. Pa has a population of 12,000,000 people. Accepting your coal industry number at face value, the percentage of Pennsylvanians employed in that industry is .000625%. To put it another way, there are four times as many people employed by the University of Pennsylvania within the city limits of Philadelphia than are employed by the entire coal industry state wide. And U of P isn't the state's largest employer. It gets worse for the uninformed. There is not a single coal company listed in the top 100 of PA's largest employers. Apparently you've put as much effort into your response here as you have for your choice for president. But at least can you see why I said being called a coal state would come as a surprise to most Pennsylvanians.
 
You believe people are being unfair to Palin? There's nothing juvenile about lampooning a candidate's ridiculous statements. Or, are you comfortable with her nonsense answers?
 
How about this, listen to what Palin says. Try that reality.
