As far as I know, she has paid her taxes, managed a state, has had CEO experience and doesn't associate with socialists. Do you think she would be more qualified if she had been a community organizer instead?

Perhaps if the candidates would lead by example and be "fair and balanced" instead of trashy parody's of themselves with transparent agendas, focused on greed and self promotion.

I didn't think she was a good running mate in the election and I don't see her as a president.

Actually, at best I thought she was pretty last minute and a desperate act on the part of the republicans to garner some votes.

At worst she was an intentional plant to help the Republicans lose the election and get Obama into office.

Why she was ever there in the first place is beyond me.

Having said that, I'm amused by the rabid hatred displayed towards her. She's no worse than the rest of the clowns that we have in office right now.

Mat Damon is part of the total problem and none of the solution. He is very much part of the MSM. Not just Matt, but anyone who states "I don't know X, but he/she is not good for America because he/she believes dinosaurs existed 4000 years ago. I don't know his/her political leanings, but his/her voice annoys me." A persons faith or lack of it should not be a big consideration for running for president although it seems to be these days.

As to your question of would I work for her as my boss? I'm going with Matt Damon on that - she's a hell of a lot better looking than the boss I have now. Really, though, I would work for her. Her religion, politics, and social life, to name a few, would not prohibit me from being her employee. She might not like the fact that I am an atheist.

No, but she has a more annoying voice. Do you want to hear it for four long years?


Just kidding, I know that's petty.

I think the hatred is built up from the hatred of the government as a whole, directed at scapegoat Palin because anyone has the audacity to propose the idea of her being our next president. It's just like...where do they find these people?

I think Americans are too afraid to dig deeper into their political choices. They don't want to look behind the curtain, because deep down, they know it's not pretty. Our leaders have not had our best interests at heart for a long time, but as long as McDonalds keeps slinging Chicken McNuggets, Walmart keeps "rolling back" the deals, and the Idiot box keeps pumping out cliched, mindless entertainment, no one cares.

I believe more and more people are "waking" up to reality, but they're taking their anger and frustration out on "enemies" created to side-track them from the REAL enemies. TPTB don't want us to work together, they want us fractured, and fighting. We need to start seeing that LIFE, and ALL LIFE is MORE IMPORTANT then material items. People should hold a higher priority then luxury, but we all know they don't. We allow, and implement human misery, death, and disease in the name of the all holy profit.

Got a laugh out of that.
Thanks.
After we get her to keep her trap shut we need to get her some geography lessons called allies versus enemies......or a teleprompter.

I wonder, since you are an atheist, what is your view on certain things that political figures with a religious agenda want to do? There's just certain things I think don't really have a place in politics anymore. We are still electing people who want to make abortion illegal. I don't personally support abortion, but if someone was raped and became pregnant, who is the government to tell them they have to have that baby? As an agnostic, I don't like when religion and religion based agendas make their way into the government arena. There are just more important things to be dealt with than something settled years ago. Just wondering your views on that sort of thing?

Exactly, kind sir! She's easy on the eyes, but I believe she lacks the cajones for four years of the presidential grind (just look at Obama, now as compared to three years ago). I do not like unqualified opinions about, well, anyone, especially in the political arena. I do like people who do their research and do have qualified facts and opinions about someone, not just MSM spin like the Matt Damon interview.

Most of the time I close my ears and go with my gut instincts. Its kept me from death numerous times.

But to your statement of How?, They were chosen for us and we didn't even seem to mind. (I did)

What about how her kids are behaving on Facebook for everyone to see clear as day? While her kids are kids, I think everyone would agree this isn't exactly appropriate behavior. Why would I want someone, who lets their kids talk like this to people, be our president? She can't even manage her own children. She needs to go home and be a mom. Or at least teach them some etiquette.
More Palin Facebook Drama
I would have posted the pictures here, but wasn't sure if the language contained in them would get me in trouble. If I have to worry that Palin's kid's words are going to get me in trouble on here, then there is a problem. I had hoped it wasn't true, since I heard earlier in the week but it was unconfirmed reports, but it seems to be real as more major media outlets are reporting it now. And the pictures kind of speak for themselves.

Exactly, SpaceJ, I had problems with Bush Jr. about the stem cell use. Banning it totally when it could be used to save lives? Gimme a break! Most of the stem cells that could be used came from (as I understand it, I'm no geneticist) umbilical cords and placentas. Heck, this was afterbirth and thrown away! To hear Bush tell it, you kill the baby to obtain stem cells. I also am against abortion except in cases of incest and rape or the mothers life is in danger and maybe other strange circumstances.
Taking your statement "having the government tell you what to do" and running with it, We, the people are the government and the government should not tell US to do anything. We must take our government back and tell them what to do. Even though in the preamble of the constitution, this Republic was founded on Christian principles, we must have separation of church and state. We do enjoy this to a certain extent and way more so than being a professed agnostic or atheist in an Islamic state wher we would be put to death for our beliefs.

If she became president it would be an absolute nightmare and a nail in the coffin for America. No country in their right mind would take us seriously, and she would be clueless on issues affecting the U.S. and the world. With all the morons were getting as candidates lately, I think we need to have every candidate for office take a test on U.S. history, world history, government, the constitution and geography. I would call it "no candidate left behind." If our kids, technical people and professionals have to be tested to be considered competent, than I think our government officials who want to dictate, create laws and govern the masses should also be tested. We're getting to the point where if your likable, good-looking, cutesy and charming, that's all the credentials you need to run for the most powerful office in the United States! Having an above average IQ or making sense when speaking in public doesn't matter anymore! I hope this isn't a direct reflection on the mentality and consciousness of the American public. If it is, God help us all!

I do value the fact that I live in the US because of things like separation of church and state, but when I see it hanging on the line, left up to the masses who really don't care or pay attention to politics and ulterior agendas, that's where I get upset. In this age we live in, people are so consumed with consuming, and then their lives and jobs in general, people don't pay enough attention to what is going on. They let the media and advertising tell them what they think, then they vote and get upset when someone does something they don't agree with all because they never looked into the person themselves. They let their churches tell them what they think politically, too, and never end up thinking for their own mind. I wonder if they even have their own beliefs, or if they just do not have the time for it. Bush and his views on stem cells did not agree with me either, I couldn't even fathom it to be honest. That is what I mean by people who want to set us back fifty years. We are supposed to be moving forward, and while I agree there needs to be strong ethics and morals involved, they need to not be so idiotically placed. It just feels hopeless to me most of the time. People don't want to know. And so nothing will change. And I will keep being mortified by what these people purport to do.

As far as I know, she has paid her taxes,

nope


Sarah Palin makes $125,000 a year as Alaska governor. Plus, since she took the job in December 2006, she hasn’t paid taxes on the more than $17,000 she received in controversial per diem payments for working out of the family’s lakeside home in Wasilla — some 575 miles from the capital of Juneau.

For the 2007 tax year, Todd Palin’s self-employment brought him $66,893 in gross receipts: $49,893 from fishing: and $17,000 from snowmachine racing. But, the returns show, he claimed so many deductions that he reported only $15,513 net profit from the fishing operation and claimed a $9,639 loss from his racing, leaving him with an overall net income of only $5,874.

The question is, is snowmobile racing a business or is it a hobby?

An Associated Press analysis of the returns released by the McCain campaign also reveals that the Palins underpaid their estimated taxes with an April extension and likely owe interest.




managed a state,

nope



has had CEO experience

nope...and not even sure what your talking about here.
but she cannot even hypothetically be a CEO according to her own handlers


Carly Fiorina, a key surrogate for John McCain on economic issues, said on Tuesday that Sarah Palin does not have the experience needed to run a major company like the one that Fiorina formerly headed.

"Do you think [Sarah Palin] has the experience to run a major company, like Hewlett Packard?" asked the host.

"No, I don't," responded Fiorina. "But you know what? That's not what she's running for."



and doesn't associate with socialists.

Nope


Palin is now hurling the S-word around in her speeches and defended the accusation to reporters this morning by saying: "There are socialist principles to that, yes. Taking more from a small business or small business owners or from a hard-working families and then redistributing that money according to a politician's priorities — there are hints of socialism in there and that's why I don't fault or discredit Joe the Plumber for bringing that up, asking if that is socialism."

But wait. If this is Palin's definition of socialism — taking more from business and redistributing "according to a politician's priorities" — then isn't she herself guilty of running a socialist government in Alaska? After all, she is the same Governor Palin who in 2007 pushed a gigantic increase in the state's oil profits tax through a Republican-dominated legislature, a move that brought in $6 billion in new revenue.

And what was done with that money? Well, as the Seattle Times put it (before Palin emerged as a national figure), "While many other states are confronting big budget deficits because of the troubled economy, Alaska officials are in the enviable position of exploring new ways to spend the state's multibillion-dollar budget surplus."

In other words, the extra money that Palin took from businesses was spent according to the priorities of Palin and other Alaska politicians. Isn't this exactly what she's accusing Obama of wanting to do? Here's a clip a Palin bragging about her windfall profits tax, again, from before she landed on the national ticket.



Do you think she would be more qualified if she had been a community organizer instead?


nope.

I would rather see a sexy face than Obama's or Bush's.

We all know Bush and Obama didn't/don't run the US, they are just the face of the real power, they have no say, just like Karzai in Afghanistan.

I would rather see Sarah Palin as US president, I think it would be 100% better than other old saggy presidents.

Politicians are good only for answering questions without even answering them, and reading speeches which they didn't even wrote.

They are an embarrassment to humanity.

Scary, ain't it! We could certainly touch on many topics with your statement. Thank goodness for the 2nd amendment. When the SHTF, weapons and ammo are going to separate the quick and the dead. When these people that don't want to know get hungry, they will loot and burn just like L.A. and Watts. The dumbing down of America is real, I've seen it first hand. The rural churches will probably be the best at organizing their numbers, the urban ones will probably say every man for himself! I've prepared myself and family as best I can, I have a farm and live in the country with the nearest town 6 miles away. As for people not wanting to know, they're just plain scared and/or don't know how to survive what ever may come. It is certainly interesting times we live in.
Going full circle, Palin may make a good survivalist president. Hope it would never come to that, though.

It's actually pretty hard to watch these people think they are making sense, how can someone's mind be so locked up like that? This site annoys me sometimes (mostly the ufo and prediction BS) but gems like this pop up every now and then and remind me what ATS is really about: seeking truth as we deny ignorance. S+F

Wow... She made a mistake which was corrected in the news broadcast. How many US Presidents have misspoke?

At Least Palin knows there is a North and South Korea, instead of East and West Korea.

Lets look at the most recent shall we?

He has visited all 57 US States.


Obama's Muslim Faith


Sarah Palin, just like all other high politically profiled people are going to make mistakes. We all make mistakes. The Measure of a person is how those mistakes are handeled and corrected.

Simply pointing out a misspeak and using it as a basis to ask if someone is should be President? Come on...

Another mistaken comment?




As you can see I pointed out the mistakes made by our Democratic Presidents. I am sure we can find a bunch more dealing with the REpublican Presidents. Out of curiosity to the OP, since you are calling out Palin in this manner, I am assuming you have never made a mistake while speaking before?

If you are going to call her out because of a mistake, thats fine. Using that mistake to ask if she is capable of being President is a joke.

Based on the premis of the question, then Obama, Clinton and other Presidents, well, namely ALL Presidents, are unable to be President. As a matter of fact, any human would be inelligable to be President, since none of us are perfect.

Whether you're right or left...you should never vote for STUPIDITY and GREED. A vote for Palin is a vote for stupidity!

No one with a functioning brain should ever feel compelled to vote for that money-hungry charlatan.



Even her own supporter can't seem to say why exactly they wanna vote for her, or what she stands for concretely.
