Arizona Daily Star ^ | 09.18.2008

WASHINGTON — Nebraska Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel said his party’s vice presidential nominee, Sarah Palin, lacks foreign policy experience and called it a “stretch” to say she’s qualified to be president. “She doesn’t have any foreign policy credentials,” Hagel said in an interview published Thursday by the Omaha World-Herald....

Chuck Hagel isn’t qualified to be the Senate shoe-shine-boy. Nobody will miss him and nobody will even remember who he is after the election. I guess he’s just looking to get his name in the paper, so we can all line our catboxes with his face for one last time.

Palin is more qualified than Obama for either VPOTUS or POTUS.

It’s more of a stretch to call Hagel a “Republican.”

The Little Gurlie Man from Nebraska should go off to some corner and have a good cry.

He doesn’t appreciate a real woman.

Weren’t you listening, Chuck? I saw that Tina Fey look-a-like get up and say “I can see Russia from my house.”

And if that is not a relationship with a foreign country, I don’t know one that is.

Bullocks. Her daily briefings alone from Homeland Security since she is Commander in Chief of Alaska's National Guard, which mans patriot missles, btw, already has her far more qualified than Obama.

If I was a Republican I would prefer that Hagel move on over to the democrat party. He adds nothing of value to anything he does or says.

Hagel is about as Republican as Joe Scarborough and Rick Warren. Hagel is a total A HOLE and always has been.

Sarah Palin, lacks foreign policy experience and called it a “stretch” to say she’s qualified to be president.

Um, Chuck, she isn't RUNNING for President. However, Obama is TRYING to run for President, and he has no foreign policy experience.

He also doesn't have any executive experience, which Palin does. Therefore, she is MUCH more qualified to be President than he is.

Hagel shows the problem within the Republican Party. Liberal ninnies claiming to be Republican.

The sooner the party sheds itself of these whiners, the better.

Other than the fact that his dad was a black Kenyan who abandoned him when he was 2, and his step-dad was indonesian, where he lived in indonesia for a few years as a kid, attending a muslim school, and registered as a muslim and indonesian citizen, can Anyone explain even one single foreign-affairs experience/credential that Obama has?

And Joe Biden’s credentials are that he has been wrong about virtually every foreign-policy issue in the past thirty years.

But she's not running at the top of the ticket Mr. Hagel.

Poor Chuckie. So desperate to get his name on a national ticket he would lick anyone’s boots to get there. Good riddance to bad rubbish. Nebraska will be better off if you never step foot in the state again. Don’t wait... resign now...

It’s amazing how many people speak out so passionately concerning Governor Palin’s qualifications or lack of qualifications for VP, but don’t bother to say one word about the even greater dirth of relevant experience of Barack the Unready. He is the most unqualified major party nominee since WWII, and maybe in US history (just don’t know about both nominees much before Eisenhower/Stevenson).

Obama gave a few speeches over in Eurotopia and tried to illegally delay troop withdrawal from Iraq until after he was elected.

That's the extent of his foreign relations experience.

What he doesn’t realize is that it’s a good thing. It’s actually refreshing to have someone that is not locked into policys that do not support this country.

The scariest thing about all this is that Hagel and McCain are about the same on all issues (except Iraq)...note that he does not blast his fellow GOP liberal McCain (more telling than his attack on Palin)

These oafs believe only the washington elite are qualified. Screw them. Their way of doing things has resulted in more disasters than successes.

Time for somebody with a better foundation, one uncontiminated by insider politics.

Right now I’d like to trade Chuck Hagel for Joe Lieberman & call it ‘Even’. All you do, Chuck, is lend cover to the Left-wing of the Democrat Party.

This guy is SUCH a jerk. I hope McCain is learning his lesson about trusting RINOs like Hagel. If McCain wins, I hope he cuts off Chuckie’s pork completely.

Know your enemies. Bush has a hard time understanding that, and McCain too, but maybe he’s learning.

The press is not your friend, John. The Democrats are not your friends. Teddy is not your friend. Chuckie is not your friend.

Well, he tried to undermine ongoing negotiations between the USA and Iraq, so as to delay the departure of the troops.

That would count, wouldn't it...???
