Obama didn't finish one term as state senator.


That's simply not true. He was state senator from January 8, 1997 – November 4, 2004. Then he became US Senator until his presidential run... NONE of which is "executive experience".


Apologies. You're right about all of the above.

His time working and the fact that he has absolutely NO executive experience.


He has almost 8 years of it. More than Palin. It is true that he had no executive experience before elected, but that's irrelevant now.


Yeah, we're just seeing the results.


Forgive me if I am not concerned with the opinion on those results from someone that didn't even know he served 3 terms as a state senator.


I don't care what your opinion of me is, socialist.

The results speak for themselves, regardless who points them out.

It's cool to hate Palin. It's trendy and edgy.

What will be funny is when the results come back and we see a positive poll result for Trump based on Palins endorsement.


Trump will win Iowa because of this. Book it. The evangelicals love her. He'll also win New Hampshire and South Carolina.

That is true. What matters is one's ability to interpret those results. If one is unable to learn the simplest of things about the man running our country, how can we expect them to properly interpret the results of his time in office?

Or did everything you need to know about Obama's "results" come from Breitbart?



socialist


Why, thank you very much. It's about time people quit calling me a liberal.

You did not either until Heretic pointed it out.

If we use that math, 6 years running a city and 2 and a half running a state equates to 8 1/2 years if you want to say that Obama has 7.

Fact is she had 8 and half and he had none when they ran and it sure a hell shows.

You and your socialist math still do not work here....

I watched this in the same way that I used to occasionally tune into Sally Jesse or Jerry Springer. Just rubber-necking a train wreck.

This endorsement makes sense for the far right movement because overall Trump is more establishment then Cruz. Having Palin endorse Trump will in some people's minds deligitimize Trump even more just by being mentioned in the same sentence as Sarah Palin so I could see this being used as a strategy by conservatives to try and unseat Trump as the Republican frontrunner. What it boils down to is for undecided and independent voters, an endorsement of Trump by Palin is more or less an endorsement for anyone but Trump.

At first I questioned the value of a Palin endorsement, but it actually makes perfect sense and will mostly likely increase Trumps numbers even further.

People flock to Trump and Palin for the same reasons - tired of the same old, same old. The only reason Palin is "toxic" is because a bunch of lefty media flunkies went on a crusade against her. The fact is she still has huge grassroots support, and it isn't a big leap for them to vote for Trump.

It's funny on here...people calling them both train wrecks. This train wreck is going to win. Unless something huge happens, Trump will be the next president.

Finally, as others have noted...if the left wasn't afraid of her they wouldn't spend so much energy trying to destroy her. Same for Trump. This terrifies the lefties.

That's quite the assumption. Of course, there is no way of you knowing such a thing so I will dismiss it as a childish retort.

We weren't talking about when they ran. That had nothing to do with it. Also, is the mayor of Wasilla considered an executive position? Depending on the particular city setup, they may not be considered an executive position as they are on equal standing with city councils, etc.

We would have to find that out first.

If I am wrong, I will recant.



You and your socialist math still do not work here....


There is only one kind of math. You should have learned that in school.

Did you hear the one about when Sarah Palin and a "sane" woman were seen talking on the street?

No, wait.
I don't that can actually happen in real life and would certainly be most inappropriate to joke about.

Back in 2008, when McCain selected Palin as his Veep, I remember posting/saying/blogging/yelling "if Palin had a "D" behind her name, the left would be naming schools; boulevards; and scholarships after her. Alas, the married, mother of 5, from humble, lower middle class beginnings; went to community college and state schools; former Mayor and state Governor carried an "R" and it was all down hill from there.

Palin, whether you like her or not, showed the abject hypocrisy of the left. They love "the working class" until one of them achieves prominence; they support "choice" as long as it's the choice THEY deem should be made (the heartless, ugly commentary about her Downs baby boy was unforgettable in its fury against a BABY!!!). A woman can "have it all" be a married, working mom, breaking those glass ceilings as long as they are the "approved" ones...because you know...it was Hillarys turn.

I don't know if Palin helps or hurts Trump. She is entitled to her opinion (and quite frankly some payback to those in her party who were so vicious in 2008, as well as 2012 when Team Romney made her persona non grata at the Mitt Coronation.)


or we just don't want people who don't know anything having the most important job in the world. I'm not running for office, so I don't have to pretend that every working class mother is a magical world class leader, who is instantly qualified for the job of president. There are plenty of working class mothers who are dumb as hell.

She doesn't make intelligent observations about the world around her, she just blurts out awkward divisive buzzwords about "real Americans". She has no substance and she's annoying to listen to.

She does not appeal to me, she makes me cringe with embarrassment. vine.co...

At least let's adhere to reality and admit that a Palin endorsement makes Trump even more unelectable on a national level. Despite how far to the right our government is on the world stage, our nation's population skews increasingly progressive as a whole (it's part of progression after all). There are way too many people that would never (ever) vote for Trump, and Palin is going to only remind them why that's the case. Even if Hillary does by some stroke of political influence/corruption get the nomination, kicking the can down the street is going to seem more sane than voting in a vindictive loose cannon that is (admittedly) part of the corruption process, is all over the place with his political affiliation, and spends most of his time writing reactionary tweets.

You know, as a Democrat, Palin and Trump can be annoying, but to explain how American they are compared to Corporate Romney is refreshing. Even if Trump is maniacal and Palin is an idiot.

Yes.

I was referring to when they ran. I should have clarified that but with so many posts and trying to refer to multiples in one it can happen. I will apologize for not being more concise.

The mayor of a city of almost 10k would qualify as executive experience but I am sure you will say otherwise.

And yes, there is socialist math...

I am almost certain this post is against the code of political decorum. Lets debate her political merits without mud throwing please. She is a very lovely lady.

The idiocy of that meme shows that you can't even get your own insults right.

If following the typical stereotype of socialism, then it would be "I have one dollar, and you have twenty dollars, therefore we both have 10 dollars and 50 cents." Under no version would this meme be applicable.

Only someone with no concept of basic logic, reasoning or math could come up with such a stupid meme, as it's so horribly inaccurate and nonsensical.

Please give some examples of her political merits. What does she contribute beyond divisive buzzwords? What significant contributions has she made?

If she offered intelligent policies people would criticize her policies, but she runs off the power of her personality, so people criticize her personality.

Well we gotta admit conservatives fight very hard to defend the status quo and the corporate grip on America.

Profiteering must be protected at all costs!

Why is insulting Palin not appropriate but insulting Hillary all day every day is fair game? Seriously, stop with this "against political decorum" nonsense. As I told another poster, the things I've seen Palin called are child's play compared to what Hillary is called literally every time her name is brought up (current topic notwithstanding).
