Is she for banning it in all cases, including in times when the mother's life is in danger or cases of rape/incest?
Is she on record of saying there should be a national ban of it or the states should decide?
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Right, so you don't want to talk about Palin, which is who the conversation was about, but you're going to stomp off because I asked you to contain the discussion the topic. You were the one defending her experience, I simply took what you provided and began examining it. But now it's about me not wanting to talk about Obama. What the ****, I wasn't the one in here defending Obama's experience and qualifications was I? Did I make that argument? No I didn't. So why are you stomping off when I don't take up that mantle? Look, as I pointed out in an earlier post, I know the guy has little to no experience, I admit that. I also admit I voted for him despite that. There you go j, that is my position. I agree with you he's a babe in the woods with no executive experience. Can we kiss and make up now?Okay, Lerxst, we're just going to have to agree to disagree because I think the whole conversation just took on an air of being ridiculous. I'm not going to sit here and play your game of hunting down the details of everything Palin did as governor while you refuse to do the same for your little community organizer.
Now, I would like to discuss Sarah Palin if we could. Since you were one of the only people in this thread who had the balls to actually step and define things about her that you felt were good qualifications, I'd appreciate a continuance of our discussion on your position.
Oh whatever, that's horse dookey and you know it. What's absurd is you suggesting that, simply because I'm not up here slamming Obama when the conversation...the thread...was about Palin. All I did was take the defense you offered up and hammer away at it. If you don't want get any deeper into what you laid out there, fine, I understand. However my criticism stands.You basically hold Palin to a different standard because she has the R after her name and nothing more. It's beyond absurd.
Look, I hold Palin's performance during the campaign against her, because that's all I have to go on. You apparently seem to think she did a bang up job, obviously I disagree. All four of those involved made horses asses of themselves at one point or another. I just chose to vote for black horse and I'm okay with that. I think he was the better choice, but not because I think he had more executive experience, or really experience of any kind, over anyone else. I just liked what he had to say and thought his direction was better for the country than McCains. It doesn't have to be more complicated than that.
I still love you.
It is to me, considering that life is precious, I side on the side of science, that there is life there.. Though I don't call pro-abortion people "extremists" just misguided. That said, there have been numerous times I have been called an extremist or an "religious extremist" over this issue, when religion has nothing to do with my position.... Maybe I should start.
Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
It's not just a matter of how much experience a candidate has. It's a matter of the total package, the direction the candidate wants to take the country, as well as the direction the other guy wants to take the country. I have no problem standing here and saying I voted for Obama despite his lack of experience. In my opinion McCain was a much worse choice, especially with Sarah Palin at his side. Just because I voted for a guy with no experience doesn't disqualify me from talking about another persons lack of experience.
You all are jumping to her defense, I'd just like to see you actually articulate your case. Making broad comments about what a governor does means nothing in the context of this argument...what is important in this argument is what she's actually done. You see Truth Detector, it's her actual experience as governor we were discussing, not her job description as governor.
You can talk about his lack of experience all you want, I'll even help you out. He had literally NO experience. Yet here he is, doing the job. And that kills you. You don't really like what he's doing and that's fine, but some of us okay with his performance thus far, I'm giving him a C-. not bad for a guy with no executive experience. I think he'll only get better at his job as he goes along.
So, now let's see you defend Sarah Palin's experience. And by defend her experience, I mean don't talk about Obama's lack of experience. You've seen my counter to Jallman's answers, start there. Or better yet, why don't you offer up some of these facts you are talking about all the time but rarely producing?
There are valid reasons for abortion. It's up to the mother and the medical community to sort those issues out.
