The Obama administration: Crass, nothing but crass.
Like a man going down in a boxing ring, Obama is trying to throw as many punches as he can before going down. It's like the meals they eat and places they travel, just max it out as much as possible on American taxpayer bill. Get back at cops, use that WH platform for their petty insignificant racist baggage. And Americans cowers and participates letting these immature brats get away with their tantrums.
Read the Polls, Your own Governator got throw out of his house as a loser and out of his state as a loser. he bankrupted Cali and he'll be back to posing for oldgayporn.com . The rest of the rethuglicans will have to work pretty hard to stoop so low to get some pub, but they'll manage. You sillyyucks can't find anyone who'll poll better than 20% and with about a year left, your entire party is, rightfully so, self destructing. Sponge bob the democrat will beat anybody the thugs run, Anybody.
Your all racist dogs for complaining about Obama's white house guest. stick to the political and economic issues and you may get some votes next election, but you dix are incapable of that.

<quoted text>Republican my rear! Sarah quit as governor to put an end to a continual barrage of nuisance lawsuits that were hampering her ability to lead the state, which she did a good job of during her tenure. If the Liberals wouldn't have acted irresponsibly with their continual harrassment of her she'd still be governor. As it turned out, Alaska is still doing well and Sarah is doing better. As for Obama and his rappers, it's about par for the current White House.
Let's be fair here. Sarah Palin was never a victim. We could produce an infinite list of politicians who have been scrutinized, dissected and joked about. The difference; they don't interpret it as an opportunity to do battle with the media.

The best thing that ever happened to Sarah Palin was the scrutiny of her ability to lead this Country. Without it, she would just have remained another VP candidate. No book deals, no reality shows, no outrageous fees for speaking engagements, and her daughter would certainly still have the same face she apparently was not happy with. If you follow Sarah back to her high school days, you will discover it was and has always been about Sarah. Again, nothing wrong with that. There are plenty of people who are only in it for themselves. I just take issue with defining her as a victim. She is not and never has been.

Since we're being fair, Slobama cannot be added to that infinite list. If the press would have scrutinized his leadership abilities like they did with palin, he would never have been elected.

In the interest of fairness you might want to check the internals on that poll. It was run by the very predictable Associated Press. The sample included twice as many people who identified themselves as Democrats as those who identified themselves as Republicans.

Do you suppose that might have skewed the result?

they complained because a collud man in the white house had another collud man over. the thugs have nothing else to do. As for the spelling, my dog was trying to get the pizza from my hand while I was typing. fyyff. the guys who complained about Obama's choice of guest are exactly what I claimed. a bunch of racsist dix who can't get a candidate to speak for America that will run on the thug ticket.

Now you are just showing that you did not pay attention to the election, not to mention the past three years in the White House. Name one other President who had to show his birth certificate and when he did, not only was the State in which he was born accused of some bizarre cover up, but of producing a false birth certificate. Name one other Presidential candidate who was called the anti-christ or a Communist. You can't. Again, to reiterate, the difference with Palin is she chose to make herself a victim, when all she truly was, was just another politician running for office.

BTW, intelligence is not Mrs. Palins strength, nor is her tact and diplomacy. It is highly unlikely, in fact impossible, that she would have been able to orchestrate the killing of Osama bin Laden. Despite your personal dislike of this Obama, in reality he has done a very good job during some of the most difficult times in our history. For that, I applaud him.
