    She delivers a message very similar to Reagan.

    Now with a forum on FOXNEWS the remainder of the people can discover she isn't the idiot some people claim she is.

    Of course he has some good policies, but the bad ones pull him down a lot.
    I'm sorry, but he's a Republican and he's winning in Massachusetts; how, exactly, is he being dragged down?

    Did you want him to win, not merely in a substantial way, but in a landslide way?

    I'm sorry, but the polls didn't lie; he won in a big way, big upset, and you say he's being pulled down by something? If he was being pulled down by anything, I think it'd show in the race.

    I'm not talking about polls I'm talking about how me and Scarecrow have fundamentally different views of him.

    Like it matters whether our President is smart. Sure, it's fine if they have a decent intellect but it's not like Obama is making decisions by himself in a vacuum. For instance, I hope no one truly believes Obama formulates his own policy or writes his own speeches! He relies on some character judgment and a solid amount of luck to make sure the people that surround him aren't morons. Other than that... I doubt any presidential candidate since the 1900s could really have enough intellect to understand the minutiae of policy.

    Except Reagan spoke extremely well, and was very intellectually engaging. Palin possesses neither of these qualities. Moreover, Americans are starting to move left on social issues, as they should be, which means Palin's social conservatism will only hurt her chances.

    You cannot compare Palin to Reagan. Seriously.

    If by "different," you mean pragmatic (his) vs. idiosyncratic (your's) then sure...

    I think intelligence is necessary for the job of Executive. It doesn't mean in and of itself it will always produce great results. There's political platform, policy, integrity, etc. involved as well. But intelligence is a necessary part of the equation.
