    If something were to happen to McCain after he gets elected (I think he will win big), can anyone here honestly say thay they feel that Palin is qualified to run this nation?[/quote:1lgzq4vr]

    She is as qualified as, if not more so than, the Democratic presidential candidate.[/quote:1lgzq4vr]

    True, but that wasn’t the question [=}=][/quote:1lgzq4vr]

    Yes, I absolutely think she’s qualified. Just because she isn’t a Senator doesn’t mean she wouldn’t be a good leader for our country. I’d vote for her if she were running for president. [=}=]

    In this poll…
    I cast my vote for Biden.
    Clearly, at least to me, he understands the
    business at hand.
    She doesn’t – her evasiveness, her side-stepping
    direct questions, was obvious through her veneer.
    She’s clueless and in way over her head.

    Notice I said:
    “In this poll”…
    How I’ll vote next month in the real election –
    ain’t nobody’s bidness but my own.[/color:1z3zs2at]

    I do predict, however – that Obama and Biden
    will be our next President and Vice President.
    Bush’s 26% approval rating (Cheney’s is far worse)
    is too much baggage to overcome.

    From what I read and from what I hear…
    Many, many Americans are asking themselves,
    are we better off than we were 4 years ago?
    Are we, as individuals – or as a country, in
    better shape or in worse shape? – Remembering
    Reagan’s question during his debate with Carter,
    and coming up with the answer – No.

    I can’t see how anyone thought that Palin won that debate. She is in so far over her head it’s disgusting. She skirted around many of the questions and continued to talk about energy mainly because that is all she seems to know.

    I’m not particularly fond of either presidential candidate but I just can’t help but think that if Palin was a man there is no way that we would see that name on the Republican ticket, and I think that is the saddest part of this whole election.

    At least she knows something about energy….what does Obama know with the little amount of time he’s been in the senate? Alot of governors have gone on to become president.

    The problem with Biden is that he used the same old rhetoric or just flat out lied. IMO Palin out shined him on style and added the most important thing to the debate. She did not sound like a career politician. I can not say Biden won because he used the same rhetoric that Democrats have used for over 30 years. He probably mutters them in his sleep. I can not see how anybody can see Biden as a polished debater when all he did is try to tie McCain to Bush and lie.

    How did you all like the idea of the Bankruptcy court having the power to adjust the principal on mortgages? If you like it, that is what you got in the “Bailout Bill”. The FHFA can dictate the interest rate and principle on all mortgages, old and new. We just took a big step towards Marxism. “To each according to their needs, from each according to their abilities”.

    Congress (Obama and Biden) have far less approval than Bush. Lets say about 9%. :whistle

    I simply offered an objective prediction, not
    a subjective prognosis.
    Whether the Party be our[/u:fxfu0d8k] Party or
    your[/u:fxfu0d8k] Party…
    The Republican Party has the Bush / Cheney
    baggage to deal with.
    It is my humble (and objective) opinion that the
    bad taste lingering in many mouths – the majority of
    the voters mouths – ain’t going to go away by November.
    Congress? Though the focus of all Americans should
    be thinking that way – most aren’t.

    I think I’ll try to post something funny after I
    finish this reply.
    Life was never intended to be taken too seriously.

    Palin won the looks part of the debate! :thumbup :D :X :X :X

    My first wife was drop-dead gorgeous, but borderline
    crazy and frequently dangerous.
    My second wife is real easy on the eyes (I never spent
    much time with ugly women).
    But she crosses the border from time to time and
    is potentially[/u:3dygrjkm] dangerous.

    If there is a message here, well…
    It would be – think it over. :?:

    BTW
    My name is Bob Lee Young, my friends call
    me Bob Lee.
    That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.

    I guess the question is really wich ticket will put forth your values and beliefs of what America should be. Our choices are a 35 year liberal, experienced liar, who has no morals and a new senator who cares more of what other countries think of us and our popularity than taking the business end of an M16 to the enemy. Or a veteran war hero, who refused to come home out of turn only to be beaten and broken for several more years and a women who happens to have christian beliefs and loves to hunt with more executive experience than the other two candidates combined. McCain and Palin have my vote and the Republican party represents my values best. [=}=]

    As with any politician or upper management there was no substance to the statements made by either candidate and I was expecting none. I just wish the American public could really grasp the duties, responsibilities and powers vested in the office of the President and Vice President of these United States. http://www.usconstitution.net/const.html#A2Sec1

    The President cannot raise or lower your taxes, nor can they protect your investments simply by waving a hand; campaign promises are as a kitchen match in a hurricane… The Executive branch is limited by law from actually doing most of the things they promise to make happen.

    I will vote for McCain and Palin not because of their rhetoric but rather because they have shown by their actions to adhere to many of the same standards I believe in..[/quote:18b4qqz0]

    Javi, I agree, but on the other hand, I can’t communicate how disappointed I am that McCain supported a bailout bill that states as its purpose the idea that it…

    Provides authority to the Treasury Secretary to restore liquidity and stability to the U.S. financial system and to ensure the economic well-being of Americans.

    It is NOT the role of the government to ensure[/i:18b4qqz0] the economic well-being of one single American. That is the responsibility of the individual and the family; no one else!

    Not only that, it simply can’t be ensured. Not even total socialism/communism has been able to accomplish that. 8-|

    Even the declaration framers understood that we were endowed by our creator with the right of the pursuit[/i:18b4qqz0] of happiness; not the guarantee of the same.[/quote:18b4qqz0]

    I think McCain did it as a strategic move. Because lets face it, Republicans
    are not all that popular. But with that move, I think McCain can do more
    than Obama can. He can change the system. [=}=]

    BTW, Biden is a very polished guy, smart too. I believe Palin held her
    ground, but at the same time, she did dodge quite a few questions, which
    so many politicians do.. [=}=][/quote:18b4qqz0]

    Exactly my thoughts.

    I hope the poll numbers are wrong. Obama in office scares the crap out of me. Don’t pounce on me for this, but I would rather see Hillary running instead of him. I hope McCain can bring up his numbers in the battle ground states! ](*,)
