in this video below she demonstrates clearly how little she understands of the republican platform. i would've responded that tougher regulation like in europe and sarbanes/ox have proved to have flaws too ie dexia, fortis, northern rock, b&b etc. so john mccain isn't for tougher regulation except where govt sponsored enterprises are concerned ie fan and fred. also they need to revise the dems community re-investment act which led to this crisis etc etc the video below is what she should've said


YouTube - Palin To 'Get Back' To Couric About McCain And Regulations

how she coul've answered:

Bloomberg News




obviously you didn't see the couric interview. i think the tone of your response clearly defines what is wrong with this country. you're a republican as am i. the key difference is that you will vote gop no matter who or what they put in front of you. i won't. if they put a clown in front of me i vote elsewhere.

i haven't decided who my vote of no confidence in the system goes to. baldwin, nader or barr?!

I have yet decided who I think can take care of the American people...truly take care of them. Politicians are gamblers, they can anti and anti, raising the stakes without having a winning hand and come out smelling like a rose.
did you see the couric interview?

...living near the forgotten part of russia doesn't count as foreign policy experience. sorry
Because Obama exhibits such an extensive foreign policy resume himself, doesn't he? Never been to Iraq (Palin has), never sat down with major leaders (Palin has). You liberals spin in circles.

Your candidate is the BIGGEST joke this country has ever seen. Its amazing why any people in the right mindset are voting for someone with no credentials besides his gazebo in Southside Chicago.

I think the country has already seen and the polls have reflected who are the bigger jokes, McBush and Bush with lipstick, especially Bush with lipstick.

Get over your macho, she can out man you every day and run the country too..
obviously another person who hasn't seen the couric interview. if you bothered to read the op you would've seen that i pointed out another FEMALE gop member who would be more suitable for the role. palin is way way out of her depth. she knows less about foreign policy and the economy than me and i don't consider myself in any way qualified to run the country.

Palin can't answer anything unless she has the approval of McCain, and so far, they haven't given her any real answers. I can't see how she can live with this.
Maybe the thought of being VP is so enticing to her, she doesn't care. So much for her personal pride.

I agree. The interviews tell it all. Palin talks and talks and says nothing.

Something else, French, the Democract and Obama's campaign donator who spearheaded the investigation along some Republicans, had no Constitutional right (AK Constitution) to start such an investigation. The speaker does. Some of the Republicans who aligned themselves with French are the same that opposed her when she ran for governor.

Finally, the governor hires the person she is accused of firing, and can fire that person if he or she fells like doing so, wihthout having to explain why.
guilty or not i don't care. what concerns me is her ignorance on the economy and foreign policy. when voting for a candidate i prefer to know their position on the issues. personally i don't consider gay marriage, abortion, religion etc to be issues that the president or vice should be concerning themselves with.
what is important is where they stand on the economy, foreign policy, environment, patriot act etc. unlike some people, i'm just not prepared to wait for palin to form an opinion when she reaches office. she needs to know the facts and have an opinion now so that i can judge whether i believe she is suitable.
no way in hell will she get my vote

She wasn't picked to sway dem/lib voters. Although the dem "bubba" votes in appalacha will find her appealing.

That is afterall one of the criteria in choosing a VP - to bring a state or a segment of the electorate - she does both.

another one who didn't see the couric interview!

why don't people leave palin alone? are you kidding? she's happens to be running for the forth most powerful position in america. if she can't take the little heat she's getting from a few people then she shouldn't be running.
i'm not voting obama either though he is better equipped to run the country i just don't agree with his policies.
