    Hmmmm,

    If Palin would have been president

    1. Obamacare would have been a no starter
    2. There would have been a balanced budget every year and all the constant calls for more money to keep government running would not have been an issue. And massive porkulas bills adding to the debt would have been avoided.
    Had to stop here. I was laughing too hard.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I understand.

    The world of Obama has not gone well. There's all those lies and back stabbing, three ****ed up wars and clearly the lad has no sense how to wipe his ass......

    So, yes, an unhealthy obsession with a tall, attractive, domineering woman would be necessary to take your mind off the dismal performance of a carnival clown.

    Let's see. Sarah Palin was Governor of Alaska, and from all reports did a good job. See quit before she was supposed to, though, just like Obama and his one half term senate career where he is noted for voting "present" on the most crucial piece of legislation he would ever face.

    And, she was selected as a WOMAN running mate on the Republican ticket, something Republicans are not supposed to be able to do at all, and something the Democrats have been terrified over since old Geraldine....

    So that's a huge record of which you can be critical. The fact she has not held office for seven years does not dismiss the fact every male Democrat has had a hard on for her since she was shown shooting a ****ing bear. Oh, and she shops in Canada....AND her kids play hockey.

    Yep, when your day is filled, day after day, defending lies, mistakes, arguing things never happened, Sarah Palin is the perfect target.

    But, to answer your question? I have left over food in my refrigerator that could be a better president than Obama.

    At least Sarah Palin has actually had experience in politics, can balance a budget and work with others......

    Obama has "enemies"

    Well I am glad you got a good laugh but in all seriousness, without Obama there would have been no Obamacare. In 2008 Obama had a Democrat Congress that shoved everything they could get through those first two years. Massive spending bills for "shovel ready jobs" that weren't. Massive increases in number of weeks for unemployment benefits, and lowering the standards of what is considered to be disabled allowing millions to collect disability. None of that would have occurred in the years 2008-2010. They would not have occurred with McCain either. And if a Republican had been elected in 2008, there would have been a balanced budget every year and greenie weenies wouldn't be running the EPA and we would be energy self-sufficient with the aid of our neighbors to the North.

    Edit- you all need to focus on the ideological differences and not the person. They use to say "It's the economy stupid". Well today "It's the ideology stupid".

    There as something I observed during that election cycle, that seems to have escaped most others.

    Before Bush Sr. announced his running mate, the press was bringing up and discussing a number of possible candidates. At some point, the news media's attention focussed on someone who they described as an up-and-coming young senator, almost a political prodigy. They called him a “Robert Redford look-alike” and compared him to JFK. I don't know how much influence this media attention had on Bush Sr.'s choice, but as soon as he announced that he had selected Dan Quayle to be his running mate, the press immediately turned against him; and for the rest of the campaign, and for the four years he was in office as Vice President, the press did everything they possibly could to make him look bad. I never saw any evidence that Quayle was nearly as unintelligent, unwise, incompetent, or otherwise as bad as the press persisted in trying to make him out to be.

    Sarah Palin didn't get the same build-up that Quayle got, but as soon as McCain announced her to be his running mate, she got exactly the same treatment from the press that Quayle did; and has been so treated ever since.

    Uh, no.

    “Writing paragraphs” means, actually writing your own paragraphs, putting your own thoughts into words. It doesn't mean copying and pasting other people's writings.

    Hell no. But then again, it's not saying much, because i don't think our current one is any good.

    Patently false, nonsense. He supported the overthrow of Gaddafi in Lybia, who at the time while not a friend of the US, was not anti US and as a result, now Lybia is in the control of radical Islamists. Mubarak was pro western and Obama supported his overthrow in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood who for all intents supports terrorist organizations. Everyone recognizes his failed pull out of Iraq which facilitated the growth of ISIS. I can't even describe the lunacy of his policy toward Syria, which strengthen Russian involvement in the Middle East and emboldened Iran. Obama is a mess in the middle east.

    If you want research on food stamps, the labor participation rate and numbers of unemployed, look them up yourself, assuming you can operate google.

    Any rational and honest person knows that to be elected governor of a state you can't be stupid.
    In alaska and mississippi, you have to be potty trained.

    Maybe. But a bowl of wax fruit can't screw up too much, Sarah Palin could screw up much more than any bowl of was fruit.

    As much as the Democrats sling **** at the Repubicans for being "anti-woman", the last high profile woman for them goes back to 1984...

    Geraldine Ferraro - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A woman picked because she was a woman, never to be seen nor heard from again.

    But, the Republicans pick the first woman in 30 years, and they get still get raked obsessively so, seven years later. as we speak there are three active threads about private citizen Sarah Palin and one about a woman who has lusted after the presidency for 25 years, and who has a record that can be seen and criticized for her decisions, not how she dresses or what he kids do...


    and the way Hillary dresses is perfect Target wear
