Is Sarah Palin qualified to be VP? Please Vote!

I'll give you one. Biden himself stating that he might not be the qualified choice for VP. What is that? Biden making statements not long ago, disagreeing with Obama's approval of certain campaign remarks. Come on! I'll tell you this. You may not think that Palin is qualified, but she isn't second guessing the decision. Neither is she second guessing anything McCain is doing or saying. That is leadership. Right or wrong, it is leadership. This country needs someone who is sure of themselves and WILL take action. Not just cruise around the facts. Which candidate would you follow into battle? Think that way for a bit.

Palin represents an enormous threat to the Democrats. She's a successful, accomplished woman who's worked her way rapidly to the top government position in the state -- and managed a family along the way.

She pokes huge holes in the social facade painted by the Democrats. Therefore, the Democrats must demean and destroy her to maintain their power base. They absolutely cannot allow the Republicans to take the high ground on the feminist issue. That's why they're all in full-court press to stereotype her in a spiteful, demeaning way -- because they can't do it on her record.

Here's a prediction: After the debate, the press is going to declare Biden the winner. No matter what happens. Biden could wear a swastika on his forehead, swear allegiance to Bin Laden, say he has a thing for schoolboys, and pleasure himself on the podium, and they'll still say he did a great job. Palin, on the other hand, could solve the Fermat equation, reveal the secret to cold fusion, demonstrate how the US can achieve peace in Iraq with a nickel and three toothpicks, and pay off the national debt, and they'll say she didn't seem to have it together and was out of her league.

The convention was a surprise -- the media won't let it happen again. They have their spin already built and ready to roll.

Okay, got it you blame the evil, socialist, marxist, muslim, legion of doom Democrats for any and all bad things happening to Palin. But, what do you say about the many conservative pundits that are questioning her qualifications???

Or, will you just blame that on the "EVIL LIBERAL MEDIA" as well, (those boogeymen).

You said:

Thing is she hasn't done any of those things and looks like a yearling deer in the headlights whenever she's interviewed. I actually feel a little sorry for her when I see the Katie Couric interview vids. She's lost pal and you are too drunk on right wing kool aid to accept it. Oh well, your team continues to head south and look more and more incompetent as election day draws near.

Uh, were mavericks and uh reformers we're joe sixpack and uh, people get mad about that and oh uh, Putin rears his head and flies into our airspace, and uh were mavericks. Leadership...............more like following orders and being lead.

You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about, SoCo. You've seen Sarah Palin for a few weeks. I've been watching her for years. I've met her. She's made more executive decisions than Biden and Obama combined.

And unless you understand how Alaska Norad Region manages our airspace and defense posture (as I do), I'd avoid making condescending remarks about it. There's a big difference between meeting Russian bombers at the outer ADIZ and bombers overflying sovereign territory.

Palin definitely knows more about this than you do -- it's her Guard crews manning the radar stations and flying the refueling missions for the fighters doing the intercepts. Show me another governor that has responsibility for covering that much airspace and that much military confrontation.

As far as Couric goes -- Couric is an idiot, and her interviews have shown that she's a lib on a mission to destroy Palin. Biden commented about Roosevelt going on TV in 1929, and Katie didn't blink an eye. She doesn't know who was President in '29 and doesn't know there was no TV then, but yet she's an expert on macro economics? Biden or Obama have never managed a budget. Palin has. But I don't see Katie Couric mentioning that.

Palin said it best. She is looking forward to the debate where America can hear her complete unedited answers.

Couric one of those evil legion of doomers there expat? Well, that explains it for me, Palin was set up and those ridiculous answers weren't her fault but rather mind power tricks used by the evil Couric lib women to harm her.

Whew, for a minute there I really thought she was clueless. Thanks for clearing that up.

I just wonder if Bidens historic helicopter flight will come up, it sounds like he and hilliary have a lot to talk about. If you dont like Palin atleast she hasnt blatantly lied to potential voters.

SoCo, you continue to crack me up with all the emotional hyperbole. Stuff like that just revealsyour inability to separate emotion from logic. Laugh

And oh, by the way, in all that bloviating you didn't address anything I raised.
