    How is she "manipulating the media"? By getting on some huge bus, traveling the country, showing up at a biker rally, and eating pizza with Donald trump? That is how she is manipulating the media? If you ask me sounds like she is just promoting maybe a "presidential campaign". Really dont get how she is manipulating the media. And the LA times article makes a poor example on how she is "manipulating the media".

    Its ok though, you dont have to answer, its more or less rhetorical at this point.
    Funny. Im glad you know she is "manipulating the media" she actually is a "top runner" at this point...

    To BdBoop, the others you mentioned play the media by playing the media's game on the media's terms. Palin is changing the rules, its a different set of circumstances. Generally speaking the media has not shown the hate or disdain for them that they have shown for Palin.
    Sounds like she is just buying a uber patriotic nationalistic bus and traveling the country and being all grizzly, and mavericky, and folksy to me.

    Maybe Lohan...but she is like watching a train wreck via live cam.
    Agreed.

Afghanstan I was Bush, fine, II was Obama... and Osama's killing, so basically you disagree with all politicians but you basket that in with Palin. Got it.
    How the hell can you infer any of that from the list I gave when the question was "prove Obama had policies"

    They don't even like him. The establishment was against him last race or do you not pay attention to even your own parties politics?

    Palin isn't retarded, she just doesn't have very much substance.

    Romney has proved he will play along to get along. So hes getting more support.

    It can be argued that Palin has more substance via experience and speeches and alternate media than Obama had when he first ran as a candidate.

    She doesn't have any substance on policy. I don't care how the media is lapping up her crap.

    Death panels has been an always will be a lie.

    Which means she doesnt have any substance on issues that you like, not that she doesnt have any.
    There is a difference and its not what has been argued repeatedly.

    No, she only has talking points. I read your links, talking point expanded into paragraphs for a speech. No substance, no solutions purposed, nothing,.

    Xpiher... Looks like you might have similar perspective as mine. I'm not "Anti-Palin", but rather "I'm Pro-Intelligence."
