You would have known if you read up on it or followed history.

The (Republican-written) Balanced Budget Amendment cut out a lot of the pork in bills.
Look at it this way... Democrats were in Control of Congress from the mid-1950s until the 1994 election. Republicans win control and for the first time in decades the spending decreases. Because of Clinton? Yeah, sure!!!

Well, one good thing about an Obama administration, we'll for sure get another Republican congress! In.... about two years, if not sooner from a massive recall.

Then when asking the GOP a question about her so called "executive experience", they can't answer and say, "well she has more than Obama and that they are being sexist".

If McCain and her win, then I really would have lost faith in the intelligence and judgement of this country.
I totally agree with you.

You had better get a real good look at her, because she will be your boss come Nov. 4th!!

Can you just list every candidate you're voting for this November, so the rest of us can get a quick sense of who to vote against?

Read a newspaper instead of a Christian conservative hate website.

Thumbs down Palin

I can see her running the country as much as I can see Obama running it. I would prefer that neither of them did. At least Palin is only running for vp. To hear people talk, you'd think that Palin was running for President.

If McCain's elected, and she eventually gets in one way or another, at least she'll have some real-world experience (unlike some global rock-star tour) under her belt.

Yes, I can picture Palin running the country. Much easier than mr speech giver Obammy. Anyone who tries to claim running a campaign for themselves as executive experience is really ridiculous.

Besides. We all know how this works. People start talking about Palin and whether or not she's experienced enough, and then the comparison's to Obammy are right behind it. This means that the comparison outcome of McCain vs. Obammy on experience are a slam dunk in McCain's favor and the longer the looney left thinks they are helping by comparing Obama to Palin, the more Obama sinks in the polls!

I'm still not convinced to vote McCain yet, but he's at least made this election fun by picking such a great VP choice!
