It could be a big plus for Obama if he wins the debate.

What's the problem?

He can't hide out on the golf course all year long. Lets go.

Whatever happens just happens.


While he's at it, he should debate Kim Kardashian, Snooki, and heck, why not Ryan Seacrest.

Ya know, cuz it's always a good use of the President's time to debate politically irrelevant celebrities.

I'm sorry, but the idea that she somehow deserves the stage to debate him is just silly.


Well, he sure has a lot of time to play golf and worry about what Rush Limbaugh said about a woman whining about not getting free contraceptives.

In fact, every moment he is worried about Sandra's contraceptives is a moment he doesn't give a (fill in the blank) about our soldiers in Afghanistan.

Frankly, id rather have him playing golf than debating politically irrelevant celebrities.


That said, your attempt at reductio ad absurdum is less than convincing.

A simple question to end this thread: has ANY president ever debated a celebrity, in the history of the office?

Why do you want to end this thread? A funny thing for someone who has posted a lot on a thread to say.

Do you think you sound more important when you throw around terms like that?

Reagan was a Hollywood celebrity before he got into politics. Palin was a celebrity after she became a governor and was selected as a running mate. Was Reagan a celebrity when he debated Carter? Or does it only count when they are currently enjoying celebrity status? May I remind you that Reagan won re-election by a landslide as well?
Arnold Schwarzenegger was also a celebrity who got into politics. Did he qualify before or after he was elected?

So the only example you have is a presidential candidate who started out in movies?

In other words, no.

There's a reason for that. Its because its not worth their time.

only when pointing out a person going off topic to deflect from a direct question.

They might as well send Obama out to argue with a baked potato.

You asked WHEN had any President EVER debated a celebrity, and the ANSWER is Carter in 1980! Was THAT OVER your head?

You asked when had any President in the history of the office ever debated a celebrity. What was your definition of celebrity? When did Reagan lose his celebrity status anyway? I bet he was considered a celebrity when he made an appearance at the opening of Disneyland. Apparently you meant only someone who was presently enjoying celebrity status at the time, or perhaps what you really meant is when had any President ever debated someone who wasn't running for President at the time. That would make a lot more sense in the context. But of course Prez Obama loves to set precedent and just do whatever he wants anyway, regardless of the consequence, so gosh, why not?
Oh here's a vintage clip of "Ronnie Reagan" at the opening of Disneyland. I love it!

Oh yah gosh Art Linkletter and Danny Thomas were two other "celebrities" who attended the opening.

Did you really mean to say this as a slur against Palin? She's a journalist at least, that which you are most decidedly NOT!


Yes such an accomplished journalist she couldn't name one single journalist

Sarah Palin Can't Name Most Influential Journalist
www.huffingtonpost.com...

She was an "accomplished reporter" at sportscaster for KTUU-TV and KTVA-TV in Anchorage.




She was so dedicated that she slept with her work, Glenn Rice in a one night romp





Bwahahaha you Sarah Palin haters are hilarious. Perhaps you are not American, because your grammar is too mixed up.


That was very herp derp of you, what is a hater exactly? A term one coins someone with limited understanding of criticism uses the cop out when they do not have a come back.

I can only speak for myself when i say I hate Ignorant people like Sarah Palin and her ilk. And many would agree and tell you the same. Do you understand following tools like Sarah Palin will give you a free ride on the short bus these days, or any other day? And using patriotism in your defense is absurd as well.

Ignorance is Bliss

Well, was Reagan, or was he not a celebrity when he debated Carter? Perhaps you meant to just say that Palin was ONLY a celebrity, but gosh wait, both Ronnie Reagan and Palin were governors of a State.

What's with the herp derp thing? Is that your word of the month? I honestly can't say I know what it is. It just has an undignified sound. But you and I go round and round so maybe it comforts you to throw the term at me or something.
By the way, are you really going to try to convince me of anything using Huffpo as a source? Being that Huffpo is a front for Soros to begin with, why would that be anything but a hit piece? I won't even dignify that by looking.

Anyway , my point about her journalism is that she has a degree in journalism and therefore has knowledge about the industry. Also, having a degree in journalism generally should mean that someone has an ability to write and communicate to some degree(that is unless a degree means nothing, in which case Obama's Harvard degree also would mean ZERO!). Since Obama's Harvard degree seems to mean so much to liberals, I guess this is where the snooty thing comes in.

Try keeping up with the times, like it's 2012 not 2007

There is this wonderful new technology called "search engines" I think they were used in 2007 as well. Are you using dial up?


Herp Derp is slang for An expression used when a person, or yourself, has done or said something extremely stupid and dopey

Person 1: Dude, I just hit my head on the door.
Person 2: HERP DERP


It's internet slang and if you dont know internet slang then you must not be an American. See what I did there?
