76% of Sportsmen Prefer a President Who Hunts or Fishes

Neither one of our current candidates seem like appealing hunting partners to me. In fact the only President I can think of who would have been was Teddy Roosevelt as he liked the west and big game hunting. If we had a Pres. or Pres. candidate who was an elk hunter that might fire me up a bit.

The dove hunting Presidents and Vice Presidents don't really do it for me as I don't really consider that hard core hunting. Also, if one of them sipped the flask one to many times you might get shot in the face! Laugh

C'mon we all saw that one coming a mile away.

I think I remember reading recently that McCain doesn't own a gun, I'd think neither does Obama. Probably neither of them are into hunting. McCain's a little old for new sports but it would help if Barak at least took up target shooting, must be a pistol range in the basement of the White house somewhere.

I worry much less about gun control laws than access to public land. In my state I can go get a concealed carry permit for a small fee and a few hours in a class. Not worried about background checks. Heck if I were limited to buying one gun a month my wife would be writing our congressman to vote for it.

My big problem is non hunters wanting to limit access to land. I also worry about the re introduction of wolves and the out of control cat population. Doubt we'll hear about those isues.

It is sad that the democrats are so scared that they have a group of people photoshopping these bikini, vogue and skirt pics.
I also can understand that we may have members here that do not like the current Vice President. But we get enough heat from uninformed anti liberals, That the coment above from a supposed sportsman about a flask and a shooting is certainly a stereotype we all are hurt by seeing. It is one thing to be a Democrat and try to bash the right, But why hurt sportsmen in the process.
Sportsmen are always looking for someone to support them and stand up for them. I hope they all show this woman the support She deserves. She is after all one of Us. What more could we wish for.

Not all republicans are Conservatives, But all liberals are democrats.
Not All Democrats are Anti's, But all the Anti's are Democrats.

You can't use one issue as the single defining factor to base all your decisions on. You expect a person to vote for her just because she shoots guns and hunts when you may be diametrically opposed to her on every other issue???

Being the 'supposed sportsmens' who made the sipping from a flask comment about o'l shoot em in the face, sorry to hurt your sensibilities there pal, but I don't mince words and I do believe he waited for a whole day to report the incident to authorities to let the blood alcohol content diminish.

Not all people are myopic narrow minded dolts, but unfortunately some are
and they can vote.

So just which factor would open your eyes, SoCo? You're willing to ignore Obama's voting record, public statements, and associations that document his anti-gun beliefs. Now you're willing to believe that Palin's avid interest in hunting or fishing doesn't imply anything about the McCain ticket's stance on the 2nd Amendment.

Wow. There must be crack in that kool-aid.

And as far as the BAC conspiracy theory goes, just because Ted Kennedy did it doesn't mean Cheney did. Not everybody uses the Democrat playbook. Besides, Cheney's witnesses lived.

Being a hunter has very little effect on how I veiw a politician. Some good, some bad as with any group. Putin the current strongman of Russia formerly the Soviet Union is a good example. What are Putin's and Palins views on increased oversight by the Securities and Exchage Commision, we don't know. Probably Putin is more familiar with it than Palin is.
