    The so called court costs are just PALIN crying wolf and her apologists tring to gannner sympathy for her.

    Your going to have to Google the court costs thing becasue I can't find it.
    Do you have proof that Palin had no legal fees associated with these investigations?

    Generally speaking, I want ANY governor of ANY state to be able to fire ANY cop who tases his step-son for just about any reason, unless that child actually had a gun or knife in his hand and was intent on committing gross bodily injury to someone.

    So, what you're arguing is that the Governor of Alaska should have ignored the fact that the Alaska state police had a lunatic on it's staff who posed a threat to the safety of the public solely because that one individual was also known to the Governor on a personal level.

    So, let's pretend that the Governor DIDN"T get this guy fired. What would you be saying right now, if that guy tased or shot another child? Hmmmmm?
    The issue is not that she fired a cabinate office holder she can and legally should have that right. The issue is not that a policeman most likely behaved very badly. If he did he should be dealt with just like any other policeman or employee should be. If the policeman did what he did he needed to be dealt with.

    The issue is the connection that she had with the policeman. He was her former brother-in-law who apparently had gone throggh a nasty divorce with her sister. The porper, legal, ethical, and practical thing for her to have done was to stay out of any procedings, law suits, and or administrative actions that the policeman bro in law was part of. I say practical becasue by her sticking herself into the investigation of her former brother-in-law she could have jeopordized punitive action being taken against him assuming that he was indded guilty. From what I read what he did was very bad and I have no respect for anyone who does anything tro a kid.

    Yet I also have zero respect to any polician who abuses his/her power even if she thinks it was for the right reason. ABUSE OF PPOWER IS WRONG. It is also very stupid especially if it results in setting someone who abused a child free.

    Barack Obama flip-flipped on FISA and campaign finance.

    Barack Obama criticized John McCain for hiring lobbyists and solemnly swore that no lobbyist would find a job in his White House. He immediately broke his promise.

    Barack Obama has hired people with serious tax issues to hold positions of major power within government. The most ironic being our Secretary of Treasury, Tim Geithner.

    Before signing the largest domestic spending bill in history, one that nobody read, Obama engaged in a calculated and intense campaign of fear-mongering in order to ram it through the Congress. The predictions he underpinned his fear-mongering with turned out to be absolutely wrong.

    Barack Obama unlawfully fired an independent government investigator charged with uncovering waste, fraud, and corruption in government for purely political purposes.

    Barack Obama supports rendition policies and indefinite detention of enemy combatants.

    All of this is being done by the President of the United States and all you can do is smear the former Governor of Alaska. You people are pathetic.
    Everything you said about Obama is correct. Palin is a blatant opportunist too, who puts her career ahead of what is good for America. If people on both sides were honest, they would be bashing the crap out of both of them, instead of slamming one while giving the other a pass because of the letter next to the name.

    That is not what I said ... I said that there were no court fees !!! I also have not seen any proof that she had anywhere near 1/2 million in legal fees that she paid for.

    You are correct that Obama let a few people pass free. That was contrary to what he said during the " we need change we can believe in". As the old saying goes two wrongs do not make a right!!

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Ethical behavior from our elected officials means not tacking on 300 pages of unread unvoted amendments onto a major bill, the Crap&Trade bill, to pay certain representatives to vote for the bill. Your support of the Messiah lends your support to actions like that. Highly unethical, that.

    Legal behavior would mean that your Messiah would fire his Attorney General who decided to drop a race-related voter intimidation case simply because the president, the Attorny General, and the intimidators were all the same race, since that was clearly an illegal act in violation of the Fourteenth Amendment's equal protection clause.

    Again hyou are straying away from the thread topic. The topic is the PALIN and the PALIN'S lack of ethics.

    If you have the proof that "certain representatives ' were ' paid "to vote for the bill" please start a thread I don't tolerate corruptiion from ether party.
    But that is a separate thread . This is a PLAIN lack of ethics threaD.

    You know if you look at the facts honestly who may see that that both sides can and have lacked principles at times and by certain people. And anyone can play the petty little partisan games and say stuff like your side is bad, and no your side is bad.

    I left that somewhere in second grade and it was taken by the lefties and the righties. .

    Bring on those old time Beaver Cleaver values

    I mean really just who are you trying to kid with comments like that?

    If any party is a "feel good" political party it would have to be the Republicans with their so called moral codes and family values BS including but not limited to abstinence only education.
