MacKevinized -- I doubt that Palin would hit a lawyer in the head -- at least she wouldn't do it by accident.

HEY APOLOGIST... answer my question. Okay, okay, maybe I should've wrote John McCain, but whatever. Just answer my very simple clear question:
DO YOU THINK THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION has improved this country or made it worse. This is a very simple question that I want YOU to specifically answer. If yes, how. And if no, explain why you would vote for John McCain since he agrees with the current administration. I'm curious is all. Be specific please.

The point I was trying to make, once again, is why should the Republican veep candidate receive credit for her son being deployed to Iraq?

On a very basic level, it shows that a politician is willing to put his/her child where his/her foreign policy is.

Governor Palin brings a refreshing view of the republican party to the American people. As a 27 year old conservative in NY and a Marine Corps Iraqi Freedom vet I am impressed to see this choice for a running mate. The governor has a proven social conservative record, she has proven that she can make "REAL CHANGE" while in a true leadership role as a governor and stand up against corruption and "typical politics". At face value I believe this will help in having woman take a second look at our party. We typically align with the stronger family values that mothers can relate. We all as Americans on both sides of the isle want similar things, economic prosperity, health care, good schools, and a safe country. The difference is in how we plan on doing it. Adopting "socialist like" policies and moving towards policies similar to those our friends on the other side of the pond have adopted, do not work. John McCain was not my first choice, Governor Palin was not my first choice, but they both will move this country in a better direction then the opposition. Good job in your selection sir, congratulations governor, and god bless America.

and.... well...... i would love to have a woman like that by my side!

I dont know much about her other than her husband won the Iron Dog snowmobile race which is like 1900 miles.And it seems like hes doing everything he can to keep ohio.

I haven't read all the posts, forgive me if my thoughts have already been expressed, but....

This race just got very, very interesting.

I did read enough to see a lot of people picking sides without really knowing much at all about this woman. The burden will be on her in the next couple of months to introduce herself to us in a way that impresses (or not).

I do find it interesting that both candidates picked VP's to compensate for their weaknesses, whether that be decades of senate experience or youth combined with a more conservative bent.

I'm also heartened that no matter what we'll have broken down a barrier when the next team takes office, whether gender or race.

Strategically, McCain did a better job of making Obama's speech yesterday's news thanpretty much anything else he could have done. And yesterday, when Obama finally came out swinging, McCain for once played the gentleman with his one day congratulatory ad.

I know I'll be voting for Obama. I like his platform, vision, and leadership style better. But McCain is still head and shoulders above Bush, and it sure is entertaining watching this chess match unfold.

I saw Kaye Bailey Hutchison being interviewed about this pick. She had to confess that she didn't know much about her.

Now Hutchison is a senior Republican Senator and presumably is better informed than any of us.

So how come this thread is up to 8 pages already?

Yeah, she's more conservative than anyone I'd pick, but I'm Canadian - Obama is more conservative than anyone I'd pick. I'm curious about the phenomenon that people have to express opinions absent of any real information.

HEY APOLOGIST, you did exactly what I expected, duck and hide. You shouldn't have even bothered answering. Oh and do you want proof of McCain support for George Bush's policies? I will happily provide them for you. And they will be straight out of his mouth too. Next question if you don't mind. Why don't you like Obama? And why do you think we would be "formally the united states" if he were in charge the last 8 years? Again specifics and if your going to be lazy then just don't respond. Seriously folks, I hear all this anti-Obama but no real specifics. I want hard facts as to why you don't like him or wont vote for him. I can list why I wouldn't vote for John McCain, but very few are able to SPECIFICALLY point out why they WONT vote for Obama. So Apologist, lets hear it. Please.

OH APOLOGIST almost forgot, funny how Obama said he could he this war early and got ripped by McCain for saying that THEN the Bush administration as early as this week AGREED with OBAMA that it can be done and have ACTIVELY started taking steps with the Iraqi government to set a time table for withdraw. Hmmmm. How is that a lie? Do some research first sweetheart.

HalftimeDad, I'm not trying to taunt anyone. I'm just seriously interested in hearing peoples reason why they would and wouldn't vote for said candidates. It's fascinating to me that people say they will or wont vote for such and such but give vague uninformed reasons why. I just want facts as to why someone is voting they way they are. If my post are coming across as taunting then apologize to anyone who is annoyed by them.

Yet the primary mission of the Vice President is to be ready to step in and take over if, God forbid, something happens to the President. And unfortunately, as we have seen, this has happened. I really don't see Palin as steping into the role of Commander-in-Chief, and as President. She has only 2 years experience as Governor. As things progress, and I learn more about her, I may change my mind. I was initially concerned about Obama, but he earned my respect.


I think Palin will learn on the job, and she isn't running for President, she's running for Vice President. I don't expect that John McCain will die tomorrow, in fact I expect him to finish his term in healthy condition with all his faculties. It's Obama who has the much better chance of not making it through his first term with all the threats against him, although that isn't relevant to my point here.

Obama himself IMO doesn't have the goods to become President, and every single one of the Democratic candidates expressed that concern in early debates. This includes Hillary Clinton and the man he chose as VP, Joe Biden. I'm sure they still have those concerns, but are now keeping them under wraps.

What I don't understand is WHY you think Obama has any credentials at all to be President. He hasn't even made good use of his time in the Senate, because he's been running for President almost the entire time. Originally Obama himself stated that he would not run for President because he didn't have the experience, and then all of the sudden he changed his mind.

Obama has even LESS experience than Sarah Palin. At least Palin has been actually fulfilling her job as governor these past two years.

v v v v

Uh, no. JFK had been in the Senate for one term and the House of Representatives for two terms, so he had a total of 10 years federal experience at the time he ran for President. Clinton had been Governor of Arkansas for 12 years. There is NO COMPARISON between the experience level of Obama compared to Clinton and Kennedy.

Experience is such a funny thing, some, like Dubya and McCain, have a lot of experience at being WRONG. . . that doesn't help. . .

Some, Like Clinton, Obama and JFK, don't have much experience, but they are brilliant individuals, who can face ANY challange because they are exceptional people. . .

"In one simple word, justice. Justice for an unborn child, and justice for a convicted murder. "

There is no justice in killing. It just turns those in our broken legal system into killers, too. Two wrongs don't make a right.... it isn't justice.

Exactly, rayzrsharp. If there's one thing that's totally taken away from the attack on Obama is the experience question. I can't see how McCain can hammer at Obama's inexperience when he picks a veep that's three years "younger", and has only been in big time politics for less than two years (she was mayor of a very small Alaskan town before being elected governor).

And Biden "should" wipe the floor with her in debates because of his vast political/international experience compared to hers?

I'm in no way against a woman being vice-president (or president for that matter), but McCain could have picked a much more qualified woman?

I just got to see a repeat of her 18 million cracks comments with McCain by her side.

As I watched the announcements, and thinking how hypocritical it will be to see the hilraisers flip flop on the experience issue. I had my browser find stuff about Palin thinking how does driving kids to hockey practice qualify one to get their fingers get near the nuclear button?

As I was watching her speak, I noticed where McCain's eyes were focused,,,,

Take a look! they were examining her breasts....

This will be a circus now.

In either case, he was probably wondering if what he was looking at was real.
A guy with a short train of thought like that could really get derailed...
