Default What is the Real Reason You Don't Like Palin?

Democrats...I'm just curious...what is the REAL reason you don't like Sara Palin as John McCain's pick for VP? Is is because she is a Republican, or are you somehow really upset that Obama treated Hillary so badly by not choosing her to run with him as his VP choice? And please don't say it's because she is inexperienced...she isn't running for President!

I can't see how you could dislike the woman -- she's kind of obscure and hasn't really had a lot of media exposure. What little I do know about her indicates she's probably a decent person, with some questionable leanings.

I would say that people were already pre-determined to hate her because she's McCain's pick, just like Republicans were waiting to pounce on whoever Obama chose as his running mate.

Because she COULD so easily be the POTUS - the leader of the free world... That's what's so frightening.

1. All vp's are running for president- that's the point of being a vp.
2. I don't know enough about her to like her or not.
3. I criticize her party for their hypocrisy in nominating a working mother of 4 a newborn baby to such a job.

They dont like her because she is EVERYTHING Obama should have had in his running mate. But, instead they have this bitter Washington Liberal who is an advocate of old party bickering that they somehow have to defend.

Instead of defending Biden (because there is not much to defend) it is easier to throw nice punches at the good running mate.

And you know EVERYTHING about what she knows about foreign policy based on 24 hours of media exposure and 2 speeches?

Did you know she has been to Iraq more times than Obama has?

I am indifferent, no feelings about her whatsoever. I'm curious why you only ask this question of democrats, I'm sure there are repubs who disapprove as well.

I just hope Joe Biden doesn't bring her to tears in the VP debates.
