Governor Palin has said the same thing I have been carping about. It's time for the candidates to talk to us us what they've done not just talk about fighting (was that a swipe at Bachmann?), talking about ideas or talking in generalities. She wants to hear them talk about their experience in handling things an executive would handle. She also said something like they shouldn't just be Obama in a different ideological suit.

I'm telling you, that's the smackdown on the Congress people candidates who have no experience running anything large and who may have ideas about creating an environment for jobs but have never actually done it. They are not qualified to be President (my opinion).

When are the debate moderators going to get around to relevant experience questions?

Unrelated, she also said she still hasn't made up her mind about running.

I do wish the debates would get into more substance on the issues, and not just ask these gotcha questions. They try too hard to create all of the infighting like they are moderating the Jerry Springer show instead of a political debate. I also don't know if these audiences are helping or hurting the whole process. The media likes to regurgitate the same edited clips over and over again the next day ad nauseum and they only play on one or two issues of the debate that might not even be the ones of the most importance.

Which issues of substance can Palin lay claim to answering in a cohesive and substantial way? She could not even name one publication that she read and relied upon to keep her informed. Gotcha questions? You mean like this one....“What have you seen so far today and what are you going to take away from your visit?”...which was the question posed to her in Massachusettes.

Yeah, the one and half term Governor Palin is not thin skinned much and is really one to give advice on issues of importance. Sadly, she so exemplifies her base.

From 'personal experience'....anyone who is 'personally attacked' as often..and as much as Sarah Palin...strongly indicates...she stands for important issues that brings FEAR to many who are afraid of TRUTH.

If being "personally attacked" is really any measure of "TRUTH" and "FEAR", then it must be an indication that Obama's every word is like "gospel" to wingnuts (that, or their constant attacks only show how much he scares the bejeezus out of 'em)!

Why are rightists still so obsessed with Palin?

I have thought , all on my own(!), that the candidates need to quit bickering and say something substantial....and I've heard and read that from many sources....but Rightists need Sarah to form that idea????....AND so late in the game...Sarah is Sadly Slow on the uptake.

But you rightists keep worshipping this Oh So Relevent Idol.


And PALIN whining about OTHER people not saying anything of substance! The Queen of

A. Slamming Obama

B. whining about the media....and nothing else..

I've never heard HER state a concrete plan or idea or suggestion ...nothing...
