Sarah Palin As McCains VP Choice

I've been looking at the American presidential race while chewing over the https://www.fireblades.org/forums/pol...ler-obama.html thread and working out my response to the lastest post.. and I was wondering what the American public thought of his choice of person to run with him as Vice President..

Re: Sarah Palin As McCains VP Choice

These are desperate times. The world is on the verge of energy and food shortages along with the prospect of wars in several regions. The U.S. needs a president and vice pres with expert experience during this crutial time period. I believe Palin was a poor choice, due to lack of world stage experience. The western culture is in for some serious change during the next couple years.

We are? No, it's just OPEC reducing the amount of oil they supply to raise prices.

Maybe it is time for the US to let others be the police. Countries hate us but love our money. Maybe it is time that they:
A) Take out money and keep their mouth shut.
B) Talk all they want but don't get a dime.

There are their two options.

What experienece? Maybe a degree from Harvard in presidential matters? Palin has executive experience and McCain has many years of political experience.

On the bright side, she does have a nice smile.

Re: Sarah Palin As McCains VP Choice

desperate move from a desperate campaign... would he have picked a woman if hilary did not have the support that she had. He did not pick her because of all of her experience in foreign affairs, National politics, or anything. What did she do before being gov of alaska? She was a city council member of some little town....Im not against her by any means but I am against McSame and his motives

Re: Sarah Palin As McCains VP Choice

I've been watching both these threads, and alot of good points are being brought to surface.

Palin has to be a valuable option. If McCain takes ill, she very well could be the first female VP, and President. I hope she has the ability to stand up for whats right and not whats good for her political future.

Then what good is Obama if he has no experience at all? To me, he is like a used car salesman; slick and fast talking but always needs to go to the boss (Biden) to seek approval.

Yet another good point. We are on the verge of promoting someone the most powerful position in the world, with no experience.

But, that also means that if they have no experience, they may not be corrupted by Washington's current state.

Not FOR anyone here. Just making debatable points.

I think we should mind our own business for a while and keep our hands to our selfs. Then when Russia starts kicking down doors many countries will then want to be our friends again and like us. Just kidding.

I hope Sarah can change this kind of behavior.

But he is stating "Change" but when asked about his voting record and voting "present" instead of "for" or "against" he said that this is what the others were doing to make a point. For someone to state they want change, then why is he doing the same as the others? Looks to me that he is on the same ship as all the others; SS Corruption.

Re: Sarah Palin As McCains VP Choice

Back to the issue of Palin.

Not that this is wrong... But... Her daughter is underage, unwed, and pregnant. It was just posted on Fox News as confirmed. How is that going to affect her campaign? She is expected to be popular with voters in the south and christians just like McCain. Both of which usually oppose teenage pregnancy.

Re: Sarah Palin As McCains VP Choice

Clinton; Smoked weed (but never inhaled), whitewater scandal and you had the “hookers” as well and this was before he was president. He even got reelected. His wife got a senator seat and she was involved in many of the scandals he was. I don't think it will matter.

Ever think that Palin is more in touch with reality and doesn't live a sheltered life like most politicians? That is why she is better than Biden.

Re: Sarah Palin As McCains VP Choice

At 72 some might suggest that a vote for McCain is a vote for Palin.... When you look at recent US political history and the two options in the running for the top job you could be forgiven for asking yourself if the system is broken.
