U.S. Vice President 2008


Recommended Posts

I would think this would be a big deal to most women. It says a lot about her character. But many Republican women will turn their heads to it, unless they themselves are rape victims. I would think anyone who has been through the process would be offended to learn this. I've said it before, the more we learn about her, the less there is to like.

Party before self. I mean, Palin is forcing her 17 year old daughter to get married. How many shotgun weddings do you know of that lasted more than 3-4 years tops? You think either one of them want to get married.......they're not even out of high school! An unwed teen mother looks bad on her mother's political resume.......if she's married, suddenly it looks like the Cleavers are on stage.

That young man has a bit of pressure on him doesn't he. I think it was sad that they felt the need to make sure everyone knew they were going to get married as soon as she turns 18. When will people get over the wedlock crap. If we are so Pro-life, we shouldn't make it such a big deal if a young woman has a baby without getting married.

Have the baby. But get married!... or you won't be respected for your choice.

Worth repeating, her character is what i have attacked all along. Her character is extreme, most likely due to her very religious Pentecostal upbringing. Look what it did to Scott Stapp, lol. But seriously, all her views are so self centered and very narrow. She doesn't even look at what might be best for her child. I am sure her daughter wasn't asked her opinion about keeping the baby or the marriage, and would not dare give it (if it differs from mommy).

Just in, Palins numbers after tonight's Townhall Meeting:

40% favorable, 30% unfavorable (tonight),

was 44% favorable, 22% unfavorable (AC 360, source)

Keep talking Sarah, i'm sure you will drop much more when the ignorant get a taste of who you really are, what you really don't have to offer AMERICA.

What a great day for us conservatives!! obama and the joke "Biden" are in their war room trying to destroy Sarah. The harder they try, the more Americans like her.

take a few deep breaths and realize that she has single handed put McBrilliant right back into the race.

Actually, McCain's Palin-boost has run out. realclearpolitics.com showed McCain with a very slight lead after the Republican Convention, but his lead has dwindled and gone. The polls are now tied. Surely we'll see that trend continue, and Obama will regain his lead (which he has held almost constantly, by the way. Not to mention McCain has not even attained a lead that reaches Obama's average lead thus far :rolleyes:). And that's not even considering that we have some sure-to-be entertaining debates left in store, which will certainly expose Palin for the rookie she is. B)

Throwing Palin into the mix has certainly shaken things up. Politicians have skeletons in their closet, it's almost guaranteed, but Palin has a whole damn graveyard in hers.

Should be interesting to see how things play out. I think she's a horrible choice, but I'm not playing for her team, anyways.

I was going to at first say, surprising that a Texan is so "liberal", in other words, "down to earth" but then i saw you are from Austin. Austin is cool! Besides the point however, it's also nice to hear a young person speaking with common sense.

Thanks! I've gotten into some heated debates with people here in Austin--it's a mix of a lot of different people with strong opinions--but it's great to actually talk about the issues rather than just blindly accepting a candidate based on what "side" they're on. Palin sealed the deal for me... I was willing to give McCain a shot before, but her overwhelming lack of experience and the fact that she would become President should something happen to McCain just doesn't add up for me. Throw in Karl Rove and it's a done deal.

Yes she did, she decided to not have her special needs baby aborted.

And as far as Biden, what a joke he and his son are. But I know ~Tangerine~ he is your hero. He must love furry little critters too.

Yeah and she boarded a plane from Texas to Alaska after the water for her special needs baby broke! Not to mention it was her 5th child birth! That's just crazy. I can't imagine putting my baby's life at risk like that.

No, if she had some damn common sense we might like her. I have nothing against her personal political views, but when the woman--the one who might very well assume the role of Commander in Chief if her superior kicks the bucket whilst in office--doesn't have enough damn sense to stop and oh, I don't know, give birth to a special-needs BABY inside of her when she's leaking amniotic fluid all over the place but rather decides to make a speech, get on a plane, fly to Seattle, stop over, fly to Alaska, and then drive to a small-town hospital so a woman to whom she gave a fancy award to can deliver her baby... that's pushing it, my friend. I get that she's all Annie Oakley and shit, but that's being stupid and careless. There's adventurous and then there's being a dumbass. What if her baby had died? Wouldn't have made much of a difference if she aborted it or not, would it?

Well politics always brings up heated debates and strong opinions. It's more fun to have discussions with people who feel the way you do as opposed to those on the other side. Last election one of my best friends and I (i was surprised to find out she was a Republican back in 2000) had a "debate" over Bush being re-elected. SHE got upset over the conversation and stormed off, lol. We made up a few weeks later, but haven't spoken about Politics since.

It's nice you are open minded and thinking with your mind. Palin is no mystery anymore. Now people will either use their common sense and reject her, or vote as sheep... and McCain, well he is the man not "for Change" but the man "who changes, changes his positions, changes his personality, and changes his principles". What a disgrace.

I just watched this on Nightline. Here is the online story (click link for the entire story)

Maverick to Candidate: Evolution of the New John McCain

Republican Presidential Candidate's Positions, Campaign Style Have Shifted

By TERRY MORAN

Sept. 18, 2008

RSS John McCain, meet John McCain.

Arizona Sen. John McCain talks to reporters on Capitol Hill in July 1988, left. At right, McCain, now the GOP's presidential nominee, gives the thumbs up on Sept. 4 during the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn.

(AP Photo/Getty Images)It is one of the most astonishing transformations of a political figure in recent history -- GOP presidential candidate John McCain is abandoning old positions and adopting new ones with both an impressive tactical nimbleness and a blithe disregard for his long legislative and political record. Imagine Ronald Reagan suddenly adopting a soak-the-rich stance or Bill Clinton becoming a protectionist, and you've got some idea of the campaign conversion of John McCain.

Watch the story tonight on "Nightline" at 11:35 ET

The old McCain was a champion of financial deregulation, playing a key role in the 1999 repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act, the Depression-era law that strictly limited what banks, investment banks and mortgage lenders could and could not do.

Who Has the Best Plan for the Economy? Candidates Put Economy CenterstageHow Well Do You Know the Candidates?The Arizona senator enthusiastically supported the Commodity Futures Modernization Act, which further dismantled the old regulatory structure. And he backed the 2000 move by his former colleague -- and key economic adviser -- former Sen. Phil Gram to prohibit federal agencies from regulating the financial derivative markets, which went completely haywire and are now in total crisis, dragging the world's financial system into chaos.

But that was then. This is now. And the new McCain is now promising voters a re-regulatory frenzy. He's not very specific -- though he does pledge to limit somehow the compensation of corporate CEOs, an idea he's backed in the past -- but he sure is vehement.

McCain addressed voters in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, today, telling them, "The regulators were asleep, my friends. They were not working for you. The primary regulator of Wall Street is the Security and Exchange Commission, we call the SEC, kept in place trading rules that let speculators and hedge funds turn our markets into a casino."

McCain also pledged today to fire the SEC commissioner, even though under federal law, the president does not have the authority to fire him because he is the head of an independent agency.

The McCain campaign told ABC News today that while the president does not have the formal power to fire the chairman of the SEC, the president could pressure SEC chair Chris Cox for his resignation.

If she were liberal you would all love her. But you have all recieved you marching orders from N.O.W. to trash and hate her. So, like sheep, you do it.

What's to like? What does she have in common with most women in this country? Aside from her militant views on abortion (sorry but she can do what she wants with her uterus, and every other woman "has" the same right)...her disregard for the environment (which is our planet EARTH), the same environment that the God she so crazily worships created, she trashes and can't wait to destroy with her drill, drill, drill (translation, OIL = Lots of money to be made for Sarah), she denies there is any Global Warming Problems, her lack of any kind of feeling toward wildlife (living creatures just like those babies she wants to save she has death in her heart towards), her ignornance towards what is important in our country today: (Economy, Environment, Employment, Education, Healthcare, oh and some little issue of Foreign Policy)...she is clueless to all the issues that our country requires leadership on (since we haven't had any in eight long years)...btw...did you see the link i posted about Bush's approval rating (worst ever, lol)

and who the hell cares about banning books??? Sarah Palin does!!! What is that??? Then there's a little investigation on ABUSE OF POWER that is ongoing (and gee why is she not cooperating?) This woman is not smart and not honest and ran a small little town (Wasilla) into bankruptcy...and hey buddy, check the link i posted the other day about the

ALASKAN WOMEN WHO HAD AN ANTI-PALIN RALLY. Women who have seen her leadership first hand...

Read or watch some news, open your eyes, use your brain, and stop slobbering over her picture. She's not going to date you, move on.

If she was Liberal, she would have some sense of reality.

Another case of "unbiased" ABC journalism at it's finest. ~Tangerine~ Millions and millions of Americans have figured out how ABC, NBC, CNN, CBS, and MSNBC are openly campaining for :notworthy: obama :notworthy:. This is nothing new, it's just Americans are finally realizing how biased the major media is for the dems. Only libs like you put any faith in Nightline.

Did your hero Biden ask anyone in a wheel chair to stand up today?

McBrillant / Palin..........08

:) Maybe that's because these people are smart and have common sense...

If you haven't noticed, the approval rating on your lover Bush, well check the link i took the time to post last night. Not good, and the worst approval rating of any President, lol. Now that's someone to be proud of, srpplane (and i guess you don't live in this country or feel the impact of where this country is today)...McCain will give us another bout of the same mismanagement/corruption and destruction. Yeah there's something to root for! and srplane, Palin wasn't picked for YOU...get over your little boy crush.

Don't worry, i won't compare you to a human...

now GET OVER YOUR LITTLE BOY CRUSH! lol.

I would venture to say that most animals are better than humans anyway. You don't see a rooster beating the shit out of his hen, do you? When was the last time you heard about a ram beating the lambs because his ewe was late with dinner? Yeah, you don't see that.

Humans are the WORST kind of animal sometimes.

It's shameful that this person thinks hatred towards animals is in any way making him look good. Anyone who says they value life are just phony if they don't value animal life, too. I highly doubt srplane really cares about aborted babies. I think he just says that because he thinks it upsets us Liberal gals. News flash, srplane, your feelings/opinions/lack of knowledge, don't in any way make me feel. I don't care what you think. But i don't think you have one bit of concern about aborted babies.

I agree with you, Electrophile, animals are "bettter" than people. Animals are REAL, people are often NOT.

You know what they say about children who abuse animals. They often turn out to be Sociopaths. Not suggesting anything about srplane, just sayin....hmmm.... :)
