(Triple Barf Alert): She’s Not Ready

She’s Not Ready

By BOB HERBERT

While watching the Sarah Palin interview with Charlie Gibson Thursday night, and the coverage of the Palin phenomenon in general, I’ve gotten the scary feeling, for the first time in my life, that dimwittedness is not just on the march in the U.S., but that it might actually prevail.

How is it that this woman could have been selected to be the vice presidential candidate on a major party ticket? How is it that so much of the mainstream media has dropped all pretense of seriousness to hop aboard the bandwagon and go along for the giddy ride?

For those who haven’t noticed, we’re electing a president and vice president, not selecting a winner on “American Idol.”

Ms. Palin may be a perfectly competent and reasonably intelligent woman (however troubling her views on evolution and global warming may be), but she is not ready to be vice president.

It's funny how these tools in the left wing media can't see how easily you can replace the name Palin with Obama, then realize hey wait - that guy is at the TOP of their ticket. I love how Gov. Palin is giving them all fits, it should make us all smile. :-)

Sounds like a moment of self-realization.

Or, rather I should say, self-awareness.

Although, this guy is probably functioning at his full potential, so self-realization is probably also correct... :-\

Charlie Questioning Palin

Can you look the country in the eye and say “I have the experience and I have the ability to be not just vice president, but perhaps president of the United States of America?”

When I asked John McCain about your national security credentials, he cited the fact that you have commanded the Alaskan National Guard and that Alaska is close to Russia. Are those sufficient credentials?

Did you ever travel outside the country prior to your trip to Kuwait and Germany last year? Have you ever met a foreign head of state?

You said recently, in your old church, “Our national leaders are sending U.S. soldiers on a task that is from God.” Are we fighting a holy war?

Charlie Questioning Obama

Senator, I’m curious about your feelings last night. It was an historic moment. Has it sunk in yet?

when everybody clears out, the staff is gone, you’re in your hotel room at night and you’re alone — do you say to yourself: “Son of a gun, I’ve done this?”

when you announced, did you truly, in your gut, think that a black man could win the nomination of a major party to be president of the United States?

I watched closely your countenance last night, your mien, as you stood in that hall. You didn’t smile much. Has the joyfulness of this hit home yet? Do you take joy from it?

I sent an email to this idiot reminding him of his vision of the Tower of Pisa and the Washington Monument as Phallus symbols in a video of Obama in Berlin. Also, asked him why he thought Obama was more qualified to be President than Palin is to be Vice Prersident.

Sure Bob, that's it. The media has just given Palin a free-ride since she was selected. This statement is so out of touch with reality that I fear for Mr. Herbert's sanity. Liberalism really is a mental disorder.

Bob Herbert is the dimwit who insists the McCain’s commercial about Obama’s Germany speech contained phallic symbols . . . . even after it was proven that they simply weren’t there. At first, he said he saw the Washington Monument, when it was actually a monument in Berlin near to the location of Obama’s speech.

IOW, he’s a total fool, with zero credibility. I laugh him to scorn.

My wife and I had that same conservation last night. I don't understand why these left wing moonbats don't understand every time they say Palin isn't ready, people automatically ask themselves "what about Obama"

They must think Americans are complete rubes or they simply don't have another play to run against her.

Probably a little bit if both

A Bob Herbert hit-piece on Palin is as regular as the sun rising. In fact, I would be worried if he missed one, as there might be some alignment issues in the universe.

Same as yesterday and the day before that-she had more executive experience than obozo after her first day as a mayor.

The thing that p*sses me off is that Obama didn't know the answer either. Obama thought that the Bush doctrine was about preconditions to meeting world leaders and gave that as an answer and reiterated it several times. Nobody in the press started panting about that. This thing is just to funny to watch. The press takes themselves so seriously and they can't get simple quotes right...

The assumption of all these attacks is that a govenor is not ready to be predisent because they don’t deal with foriegn countrys.

Look at our last 5 presidents:

1976 - Carter - GA Gov to President
1980 - Reagan - CA Gov to President
1988 - Bush
1992 - Clinton - AR Gov to President
2000 - Bush - TX Gov to President

The American people seem perfectly comfortable promoting govenors to the oval office. Reporters saying Palin doesn’t have the experience because she has only been a govenor are showing a lot of hubris.

Hebert is another lying/dumb affirmative action clone of Jayson Blair posing as an op ed writer for the Ny Slimes.

/>

Here is something, we can all do this weekend to start eliminating the NY Slimes as a threat to our nation.

We can do it at our computers and do it in less than 1 hour. Besides sending a severe warning to the NY Slimes and the mutual fund companies which buy and own NY Slimes stock. We will improve our precious investment capital being wasted on NY Slimes stock.

If a few thousand freepers did this simple action this week and a few thousand new freepers, friends and relatives each following week, we will have a terminal impact on the vile NY Slimes acts like their trashing of Sarah Palin.

Please send this simple "how to" to your blogs, friends, relatives and email lists. This action will serve as a cannon shot across the bows fo the other Dinosaur Liberal Fish Wraps re sedition will not be tolerated any more.

INSTRUCTIONS FROM Grampa Dave:

 

Want to smash the NY Slimes?
Check your mutual funds to see if they own NYT, the NY Slimes Stock

 

 

How many of us own mutual funds which own NY Slimes stock and even worse have increased their NYT holdings this year.

NYT investment by a mutual fund company is a terrible investment re the dollar loss in Stock value the last 2 years. Those investments are an attempt to keep the NY Slimes afloat with our mutual fund $'s.

Now it is very evident that the NY Slimes is an agent and abettor of the al Qaeda Serial Killers. The Slimes is endangering the lives of our families, friends, innocent Americans and every warrior of ours.

Go to this link to see if your mutual fund owns NYT.

http://moneycentral.msn.com/ownership?Symbol=NYT http://moneycentral.msn.com/investor/invsub/ownership/ownership.asp

When the MS Money stock home page comes up, enter NYT into the search area and hit enter and the following screen will show up re ownership of the NY Slimes stock:

The New York Times Company: Ownership Information

  • Shares Outstanding 145.00 Mil

  • Institutional Ownership (%) 83.40

  • Top 10 Institutions (%) 58.60

  • Mutual Fund Ownership (%) 42.64

  • 5%/Insider Ownership (%) 7.77

  • Float (%)

Highlight the Mutual Fund Ownership and hit enter.

If thousands of Freepers, whose mutual funds own shares of NY Slimes did the following:

  1. Sell those mutual funds or trade them for funds not owning NYT.

  2. Send a letter to the fund managers and the CEO's of the mutual fund company telling them why you sold/transferred their mutual fund owning NY Slimes stock. Then demand to know why they are wasting your precious $'s on a lie based fishwrap company which is a terrible investment.

  3. Contact the SEC to investigate why this mutual fund and mutual fund company invested your $'s in one of the worse investments of the past 2 years. Was the investment of yours and others a political bailout of the NY Slimes.

  4. Send this how to re Mutual Funds with NYT stock to everyone on your email list for a wakeup call.

We might have a lot more impact than trying to boycott companies which sell to the elite liberals of NYC and advertise in the NY Slimes.

Herbert probably feels Geraldine was a better ticket fit.

Her husband was the landlord for the pornography industry. She has always had a gigantic chip on her shoulder and is a monumental loser.

The truth is that Obama (or whatever is his true name) is about as ready for prime time as Daffy Duck, who was another example of a figment of someone's imagination. In fact, Obama couldn't debate even a cartoon figure like Daffy Duck. Daffy would win.

His 'pick' for vice-president is a narcissistic, apelike-ginning hair transplant.

Together they make an excellent team for the socialist-communist-bankrupt Democrat Party!

But that’s exactly the reason we have such long and intense campaigns. You want to find the individuals who best understand these issues, who will address them in sophisticated and creative ways that enhance the well-being of the nation.

Mr. Herbert, if you seriously think that Senator "Coke-head" Obama is the best man to represent these United States in international affairs and govern these United States, I would like to know exactly what record you are basing this on.

You media types have spent the last 18 months praising every word out of the mouth of Senator Obama since he doesn't have any executive record for you to also lavish praise on, and you have given these words no critical review.

For goodness sake, Senator Obama recited the Islamic creed to your New York Times in March of 2007, and you passed it by as if it were nothing.

What if Muammar Ghaddafi or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had recited the Apostles Creed? Don't you think that act, which would be a profession of the Christian faith, might have made, say, the front page for a day?

Well, why in the hell didn't you print such a front page story when a U.S. presidential candidate professed his Muslim faith to your very newspaper? Didn't think it was all that important? Or maybe you just don't understand the significance of reciting the shahada?

Maybe, just maybe, Mr. Herbert, you are the dolt?

The second part of your statement sounds just like a democrat - threatening or trying to shame someone into following your lead. Conservatives use reason - like the first part of your post.

I don't mean to pick on you as an individual, but I sometimes fear that conservatives lose sight of the fact that conservatism is reason, not emotion.

Actualy that is not proven here. Many adhere to strict principle and allow no reason at all. There is a refusal to reason with facts and draw a conclusion that a vote for McCain is a better choice than a vote for Hussein.

You must choose your principles without reason.

I am continually surprised by how petulant some people get when their viewpoint is not immediately hailed as negating someone else’s completely. Your post is a case in point.

Conservatism is a coalition of like-minded people - not a plantation of political servitude like liberalism. Peddle your collective guiltism elsewhere.

Arrogant leftists like Herbert have looked upon the American people as dimwits for a very long time. He is just now admitting it...not realizing it. The problem for his ilk is reflected in the richly deserved destruction of the NY Times and other bastions of anti-American thought. The dimwits in flyover country are no longer dependent upon Herbert for “news.” Facts are now available to anyone having an interest. And that spells death for a MSM which depends so completely upon the Cronkite monopoly of days gone by.

Charlie can act like he thinks Sarah isn’t qualified all he wants by trying to act all intimidating during the interview and hostile and throw really hardball questions all he wants. But when he asks such soft-ball questions to Obama, we know who he REALLY thinks is unqualified. Clearly, Charlie is afraid to ask Obama the questions he knows he should ask Obama, because Obama couldn’t handle the questions at all and that would expose Obama for the fraud that he is. Sarah handled the interview very well, it was an extremely hostile, combative style of questioning. I was shocked and she did very well, it was clear she knew what she was up against. Sarah is very qualified.

You apparently believe that approaching voters who are on the fence with well-reasoned arguments, pointing out the strengths of our candidates and the weaknesses of our opponents, is exclusory. I call it political discussion.

If someone else decides that they disagree, I will continue to try and convince them I am right by reason and strength of argument. But I have no right as a free man to limit their free will. Free will includes the right to make choices I disagree with.

With the addition of Palin to the ticket, McCain has overcome my personal reservations about voting for him. I still strongly disagree with McCain on certain issues, but I am energized - more so than in years - because conservatism now has a champion I can believe in, wrapped up in the complex person that is Governor Sarah Palin.

Frankly, your exclusion comment is a non-sequitor. I speak to free will, and you speak to self-righteousness and exclusion. Projection is also a liberal trait, FRiend.

Gee, I seem to remember a governor from a backwater state who ran for president saying that it’s the economy stupid and that we shouldn’t spend so much time on foreign policy. Of course Bill Clinton got elected and according to the pukes at the NYT is the greatest president since George Washington. The hypocrisy in this election is unbelievable.

"conservatism is reason, not emotion."

We're human beings, not computers, and you cannot divorce emotion from any human activity, not successfully anyway. Do you really think the Palin Effect is rooted in pure logic or Euclidean geometry? It isn't.

GOTV won two elections for GWB, and this election will be no different. So, to reiterate, any conservative or Republican who sits home on November 4 should rightly be dismembered, and will certainly be blamed for an Obama victory.

P.S., don't be so snooty.
