    You think 31 months in charge of a state with the population of a medium-sized city and the complexity of a minor county is really qualification enough for highest office? At least Obama had spent time in Congress.

    And what did he do there? What executive experience had he? He's not a leader.

    Let's face facts, Obama's strength is sounding like he knows what he's doing. But the man lacks vision, leadership... it really get's under my skin when he says that "We need to be a competitor in the global market". Am I the only one that sees the problem there?
    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.

    The substantive Daniels is a credible candidate, but he has one ugly wart: He was GW Bush's OMB Director. The Bush budget was nothing by incredible imagination. Daniel's biggest single blunder in his tenure there (aside from being associated with a bad cast of characters), was his assertion that the Iraqi conflict would cost a mere $50B (even admonishing someone else that said it would cost $200B). The currrent direct price tag is close to $1T.

    I don't see how standing up to people who bash you and your family as "playing the victim."

    However Obama has been fawned over from the beginning in the media, except for FOX.
    What does Obama say about them? "They treat me like a dog." Ahh...poor baby. He should try walking in Palin's shoes for a while.

    It may be true that Palin is unelectable because of the way she is unfairly portrayed in the media. She is far from being an idiot. You bought into what the media has been feeding you, if that's what you think.

    Personally I thought that moment arrived long ago, and that the writers of the Weekly Standard are a little slow to the music.

    Time in Congress doing what? Voting present most of the time? Well, except for the vote that would allow a doctor to intervene if a baby survived an abortion? He made sure he voted that time against everyone else. I wonder what Planned Parenthood promised him for that vote.
    Yea, Obama had lots of experience.
