    Is Obama ready to lead the country from Day 1?

    Palin was a state executive for 2 years. Obama has been in the Senate for 2 years and mostly he voted along party lines.

    Why do you have issues with her experience and not with his?

    Wow. That's so awesome. LOL

    Clinton is awesome. Palin is cool. Sibelius is kind of lame.

    I know, I know, not good reasons to vote for someone
    ;-)

    You are such a troll. Her husband work on the fields, he is not an executive.

    You know, I grew up behind the iron curtain. My grandmother told me this story about how the communists took over (I am paraphrasing for brevity):

    First they demeaned those who opposed them. Then they ostracized them. Then the arrests started.

    A party that insists on loyalty before the opinion of the individual is not worth supporting.

    So, you want there to be a debate that compares Obama's experience (the would be president) to Palin's experience?

    Probably not a good idea. It would massively reduce Obama's stature.

    I just hope that whole 'she is like Quayle' argument dies fast. Total non started for the Democrats.

    Oops. Apologies to Jerome.

    Yes, I bet the diarist clings to his guns and his religion, the poor uneducated sod.

    Much closer to Obama on the experience front really ;-)

    I bet that's part of the McCain calculus too. He knows Obama wont attack her experience because the last thing the Obama camp want's is to have the Dem presidential pick compared to the Rep VP pick.

    Well ...

    1) I happen to agree with McCain on Iraq. Obama's policy is just pander. I am not saying we should have gone into Iraq, I do agree it was executed badly, but now that we're there finishing the job seems more logical to me.

    2) The economy may be sucking for some, I totally appreciate and understand that (I was dirt poor when I was young) but the Bush tax policy has helped me personally. I am not sure I want more taxes. I do want more fiscal responsibility though, and I think McCain will do a better job of that then Obama.

    3) McCain supports cap and trade, his battery proposal has been well received, he is against drilling in Anwar.

    4) I'll give you a point on civil rights. Obama did flip flop on FISA though, which I think sucked, by McCain was no better.

    I will say I support Universal Health Care but of the type Clinton advocated. Obama's policy is no policy at all.

    I also support more social programs but, pragmatically, we as a nation need money to do that, and we'll get that through fiscal responsibility. I think McCain will do a better job of that then Obama.

    Note that I am not against Obama. I just have a hard time with the fact that all his policies are so fluffy. I mean FISA, oil drilling, faith based initiatives, have really made me realize I have no clue what he'll do in the white house.

    Well I remain undecided but if I do vote McCain that does not mean I won't vote for Hillary in 2012.

  • on a comment on GAME CHANGER over 5 years ago

    I think it was the previous posting :-)

    I mean, honestly, Obama is pretty much a lightweight when it comes to governance. His appeal is that he is a thoughtful visionary.

    To go off on a woman who has raised 5 children while rising to a governor of a state, calling her a Spiro Agnew and essentially saying she has zero experience, while knowing nothing about her, is really bound to produces a reaction in many women.

    McCain's pick is a winner politically.

  • on a comment on GAME CHANGER over 5 years ago

    Absolutely none that I know of. :-)

    I am just saying that by demeaning Palin Jerome provoked a gut reaction in my wife that prompted her to support McCain.

    I am betting that is exactly what McCain was counting on.

  • on a comment on GAME CHANGER over 5 years ago

    My wife and I are Hillary supporters (present tense).

    I was seriously wavering and, honestly, this made me more likely to support McCain.

    My wife is over on her laptop there donating a $100 to McCain just now because she was so offended by Jerome's postings and some other comments. So she is basically decided to donate money because of Palin.

    I am sure we're not typical. I am also sure this will help McCain alot.
