She is FAR more qualified that Obama.
Obama has NO foreign policy experience, beyond what he has managed to screw up so far
Obama has NO economic experience whatsoever...never had a real job...never run so much as a lemonade stand...Palin as been a mayor and governor, which do count for economic “knowledge” as you call it.
American doesn’t need a president that believes that Israel is the problem and hasn’t a clue about the actual history of the region (Obama)
Obama is CLAIMED to have some sort of academic achievemnts...but then so did the UNIBOMBER...Washington is FULL of academic achievements that are RUINING the country...What are Obama’s academic achievements? He CLAIMS to be a professor of Constitutional Law and taught same..he ACTUALLY taught NIGHT SCHOOL at a small college, and we have NO IDEA about what he took in school since he has the records under LOCK and KEY.
NAME the more experience and intelligent women who should run...
“Obama has NO economic experience whatsoever...never had a real job...never run so much as a lemonade stand...Palin as been a mayor and governor, which do count for economic knowledge as you call it.”
Although you make good points regarding 0bama, I’m not at all sure that our next CIC should be elected based on “he or she is better than 0bama” - that is not a high bar at all. ;-)
All that said, Sarah and her husband have run a small business, which makes her 1000% more qualified to understand the plight of the small business owner than most of the other candidates. Small businesses are the core of the US economy.
Sarah Palin is simply the best mix of conservative principles, real-world experience, patriotism, integrity, intelligence, charisma, leadership and intestinal fortitude (heh) of the potential Republican candidates. I’d personally love to see her run and win the nomination. I’d also fully support her on the ticket as Vice President. After Biden, no one could legitimately complain about Sarah (not that they wouldn’t, but it would be transparently nonsense).
A Palin/Cain ticket, or a Cain/Palin ticket would very much float my boat unless new information surfaces. Allen West is also very acceptable for me instead of Cain.
If Palin is the best we have then we are in deep shit! I can't believe people follow her in here like she is a Messiah.
Academic achievement is important. In fact, I think before a candidate can run for any office they should take a test that ranges from economics to constitutional law. If the president doesn't know shite about this then the advisers are running the country. Then why not do away with the executive branch and have a board of directors?
Palin is pathetic I don't care what any of you say. A simpleton and fool with no mind of her own. She has to be coached and taught what the talking points are so she at least appears to know what she is talking about. She is just as pathetic as McCain who finished last in his class. A complete idiot when it comes to economics.
As I said before, it doesn't matter where you are from or where you studied, be the best.
In a country of 300 million people there are ALWAYS better people but the question is will they run? The electorate keeps throwing idiots at us. I'm tired of it.
I am one who hopes she does not run. The media will eat her alive and whether we like it or not...the 20% of the electorate that decides the elections will get their impressions from the MSM by and large. In order for the MSM to not take her down (granted they are afraid of her)...she will have to fight them like you fight a bear.
IMHO...fighting the MSM will be too fine a line to walk for her. She will either 1) Not fight hard enough or 2) Fight too hard and come off as "whiney" to the 20%-ers.
Like it or not...these are the FACTS by which we must play. unfortunately, too many Freepers don't want to admit it because they like her spunk. I like her spunk...but you cannot overcome the negatives she has (the "I will by no means vote for this person" numbers) with the MSM that we have. Is it fair....why heck no...but for now...it is the game we have to play.
Don't want to play that game? Fine. Cut off your nose to spite your face. IMO...the best thing she could do is work with whoever is the nominee and energize the base. This country cannot survive another 4 years of BHO. We cannot sit at home because SARAH! isn't on the ticket.
