She is as qualified as any president elected in the last 18 years.

Polls smoles.

Let's wait and see how she stacks up against the competition, assuming she decides to run.

She has more qualifications than the one currently in the position, and what sucks is that it was well known prior to him getting there.

I don’t have much confidence in a pollster who would ask me how I “feel” about a political issue. They need to be asking what I think.

Well, one of the primary qualifications is being a ‘natural born citizen’. She has that.

She passes the AGE requirement.

What else is there?

I know for years and years, you had to be GOOD LOOKING.

She qualifies there as well.

I would say YES.

I’d like to have her as a neighbor or a friend. She is a VERY nice lady! I do not think she is aware of events in the world. Reluctantly, I would not vote for her!

even if there are some areas where she is shy of expertise I believe that she is smart enough to know who to hire to head that department up.

I mean seriously, has any president been an expert in all areas? no. thats why they have a cabinet.

How many of these idiotic “is Plain qualified” polls are we going to have to suffer? Jez, are they just going to keep asking the same question until they get the answer they want?

I WISH SOMEONE WOULD ASK THE QUESTION THE MEDIA AND THE ELITES WON’T ASK:

WHO ARE THE FOOLS WHO THINK OBAMA IS QUALIFIED OR EVER WAS QUALIFIED TO BE PRESIDENT?

She is as qualified as any president elected in the last 18 years.

That is certainly NOT true of Barack Obama, a candidate with extremely meager qualifications who has his adoring Fan Club because of his left-wing politics and the color of his skin.

It is also NOT true of Sarah Palin, a candidate with extremely meager qualifications who has her Fan Club because of her conservative politics and the fact that she is female and cute.

The reality is that BOTH Barack Obama and Sarah Palin are Affirmative Action candidates.

Truthfully now:

If Barack Obama's absentee father had been a Norwegian, white, blue-eyed, graduate student named Eric Olsen instead of a Kenyan, black, graduate student, would his white, blue-eyed son named Barry Olsen, who spent his career in the State Legislature voting "Present" ever have seriously considered for a Senate seat or the Oval Office?

Not a snowball's chance in Hell.

Barack Obama is an Affirmative Action candidate.

If Sarah Heath (does anyone actually know what Sarah Palin's father's surname is) had been born a male named Sam Heath, who had been Mayor of a town with a population of less than 10,000 and the Governor, for two years, of a State with a population half the size of San Diego, CA, would Sam Heath ever have seriously considered for being a heartbeat away from the Presidency?

Not a snowball's chance in Hell.

Sarah Palin is an Affirmative Action candidate, just like Barack Obama is.

Think about that.

Seriously.

I know that, on Free Reupblic, Sarah Palin has a huge Fan Club just like Barack Obama has a huge Fan Club on Democratic Underground.

Be that as it may, the deciding majority of American voters (who would be considered ZOT material at both Democratic Underground and Free Republic) already consider Barack Obama as an electoral mistake and as an unqualified Affirnmative Action candidate and also consider Sarah Palin as an unqualified Affirnmative Action candidate.

The best way to get Barack Obama re-elected is to nominate another candidate that the majority of the American electorate sees as another unqualified Affirnmative Action candidate.

"Better the unqualified Devil that you know than the unqualified Devil that you don't know."

Your entire argument is based on the flawed premise that Gov. Palin sat in her office and did her best not to rock the boat. That is flat out wrong.

Is she qualified for President? I don’t know, but I’d vote for her, most likely. She infuriates all the right people, and I don’t get the feeling that she’s BSing me all the time. She may have some populist leanings, but Reagan allowed for a large increase in the national debt and granted amnesty to illegals. No one’s perfect.

Plus, I question your judgment when you discuss Sarah Palin and post a picture of Tina Fey. Is that your idea of a joke, or are you trying a pathetic “Gotcha” for anyone who might think that’s Palin?

$8 million book deal = SUCCESS
4 million books sold = SUCCESS
$ 100,000 each appearance on Fox = SUCCESS
$100,000 to $250,000 each speech = SUCCESS

By that criteria, (Bucks Accumulated in Your Bank Account), George Soros would be far more qualified to be President of the United States of America.

So, Sarah Palin abandoned the Governorship of the State of Alaska, an office that the voters of Alaska entrusted to her, in the middle of her first term, in order to chase the Big Bucks.

And that makes her a "SUCCESS"?

Sorry to burst you bubble but, to the majority of American voters, that just makes her a greedy Golddiger.

Outside of the Sarah Palin for Sainthood Fan Club, do you think that the other 90% of American voters are going to vote for Sarah Palin because she bailed out of the Governorship of Alaska for the sake of:

8 million book deal = SUCCESS
4 million books sold = SUCCESS
$ 100,000 each appearance on Fox = SUCCESS
$100,000 to $250,000 each speech = SUCCESS

No, they are not.

They would be just as likely to vote Anna Nichol Smith's dead corps into the White House.

Let's assume, before Sarah Palin QUIT, BAILED OUT, and said "See ya, suckers, I'm gonna abandon the office you elected me to and chase the Big Bucks on the rubber chicken circuit", in the middle of her FIRST term, that Sarah Palin was God's Gift to Alaska.

So what?

My entire argument is that a white male with two years of executive experience in a political entity half the size of the City of San Diego, California, (regardless of what he did or did not do in his office), would be a laughing stock in regards to being President of the United States of America.

Do you agree with that statement or not?

Let's cut out the bullsh*t.

Would a white male with two years of executive experience in a political entity half the size of the City of San Diego, California ever be seriously considered for the office of President of the United States?

Yes or No?

You know d@mn well that the answer is, "No!"

Only in an Affirmative Action setting would the argument be:

"Yes, he has hardly any experience to be President of the United States, but, his skin is the Politically Correct color."

or

"Yes, she has hardly any experience to be President of the United States, but, she has a uterus and that is far more Politically Correct than having a scrotum."

To the majority of American voters, Sarah Paliun IS Tina Fey

The punchline to a joke.

Barack Obama, a political Dead Man Walking, is kneeling and praying every night that Sarah Palin is his opponent in 2012.

That is the only Hope™ that Obama has to get reelected President of the United States in 2012.

I accept that you are firmly in the 21% that adores Sarah Palin.

I hope you realize that 71% of American voters would rather see Obama back in the White House in 2012 than see Sarah Palin in the White House in 2012.

Has Obama been to Kuwait, to visit the troops? Sarah has.....she also fired an M-5....Has Obama been to Kosovo, and visited with the Defense Minister? (by the way, a woman)Sarah did..........

Has Obama been to Walter Reed, as Sarah has done. OR the hospital in Germany? Sarah has..........

IF you took the time to read her record, and of course you won't, Sarah, made promises to the Alaskan people and kept them all.........

She managed 60,000 employees, and personally negotiated AGIA.......and of course you won't know what AGIA is because you don't like her...........I won't waste my time with you............

Every venue she goes to is sold out.........I know, she is so over, and such an idiot.........

If she runs she destroys them all...........she ran for TWO MONTHS AND BECAME AN ICON........WHAT IF SHE RUNS FOR TWO YEARS...............SHE WILL BURY OBAMA........BECAUSE HE WILL HAVE A RECORD OF COMMUNISM, AND STUPIDITY............

READ HER BOOK.............
