Biden's no gem.

Palin nearly as pathetic as John Edwards, and absolutely no business being outside Alaska. She has no business even considering a run for the White House. Quite the delusional airhead she is! The GOP will be annihilated if she is heading the ticket.
Palin can run, she'll just end up running in place. It's not going to happen.

Quote:
The continuing presence of Palin speaks volumes about the very, very sad state of the GOP as it exists today. If they expect their party to survive, prominent GOP members must speak out against this folksy imbecile in a dress.
The only people keeping Palin around are the libs who are afraid of her for some odd reason. Most republicans, as has been noted, pay no mind to her. She's better off with her reality tv show and sticking to local politics.

Now Chris Christie, on the other hand, watch out! Libs in NJ can't stand him b/c he tells it like it is, does what needs to be done and it hurts their feelers. "He's too confrontational". Translation: he doesn't beat around the bush or the obama and make us "feel good". They'd rather be BS'd and lied to up front, and disappointed at the end, as opposed to going into any situation knowing what the hard reality and truth is.

Calling a person "stupid" over and over again doesn't actually MAKE them stupid.

Can you give me one factual, actual reason she is not qualified to hold public office? I don't mean opinion, or liberal talking points. Or goofy statements (because then we'd have to assume the same of Joe Biden). I mean a real, legitimate reason.

I never thought she would run. Her fortay is coyness. LOL, teasing the media, teasing her sheep followers, and teasing the Repukelican mainstream that she might run. Hmmm, can't make her mind up. Flip-flop, flip-flop.

It's entertaining to sit back and watch poops like Rove (smart, very very smart, but still a poop) squirm over this average intellect (on her BEST days she's average) who might run for President. Then she might not. Well, maybe she will........maybe not.

I hope she runs. I soooooo hope she runs. Run, SaRAH, Run!! We need the entertainment factor. To see pasty faced repukelicans do-do all over themselves over one little lady from Alaska is great entertainment.

Keep it coming Repubs. You're doing a good job, 'Brownine'.

Yup, exactly. The whole "what to do about Palin" dilemma really represents the larger problem the GOP acquired, ever since it began openly courting wingnut ideologues, the "southern vote" and the "willfully ignorant" (aka "rednecks"). So if they can't "fix" that somehow, and soon, they know they'll end up with another "Ross Perot" scenario come election time.

Run, Sarah, run!! ;-p

I honestly think that McCain couldn't stand her.

Have you listened to any of Palin's interviews during the election???

Even McCain does not believe Palin is qualified to be president. Now that should speak volumes to you!

Quote:
Sen. John McCain said Sunday he would not necessarily support his former running mate if she chose to run for president.

Speaking to ABC's "This Week," McCain was asked whether Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin could count on his support.

"I can't say something like that. We've got some great other young governors. I think you're going to see the governors assume a greater leadership role in our Republican Party," he said.

your post is full of the usual lies.
SP is NOT considered a leading Repubican Candidate.
Unless you count the Democrats screaming at the top of their lungs WISHING it to be so

democrats, definitely.
Tea Party maybe, Republican, no.

When you gather together, as we have below, the recent criticisms and misgivings voiced by Republican operatives, politicians and commentators, it becomes clear that Palin, if she has presidential ambitions, has a serious obstacle to overcome even within her own party. It also suggests that Palin would perhaps not be the powerhouse front-runner of a GOP primary that some have made her out to be. Here's a look at the recent criticism, in reverse chronological order:

There are goofy statements and goofy statements. Yeah, Biden's made a few, like FDR going on TV. Some of Sarah's are excusable, too. But someone who can't tell you what their foreign policy background is other than you can see Russia from her state, that's a problem. She has no depth. Just one example.

The fear Sarah instills in the hearts of democrats shows no bounds...
If I didn't like someone, I wouldn't spend my life trying to dig up non-existant dirt, I would ignore them.
Sarah has the frightened demos by the b@lls and it's a wonderful site to behold..
Keep posting your hate for the most powerful lady in America, it's fun to watch...
