We knew Palin was a popular governor who took on the corruption in her own party and won.

That alone made her a heck of a lot more qualified than a junior Senator whose rise in politics was already questionable.

Obama won 2 times in the Illinois Senate - the first time by disqualifying his opponents petitions so he ran unopposed. The second time was because Axelrod made sure Obama's opponent's messy divorce was plastered all over the news and, therefore, Obama won again unopposed and didn't even win by a huge vote either time.

He won the Senate by another convenient "sex scandal" resulting in his opponent dropping out.

What a rather unlikely coincidence, huh?

Not true. Applicants frequently are asked for transcripts no matter how long they have been in the work force. They are also asked for a release of any records the police may have and a drug panel. This is very important for high level professionals and any occupation involving direct reactions with the public such as patient care.
Are you implying that the job of POTUS is at the same level of a as someone who stocks shelfs?
If a hospital hired a doctor who lacked a medical degree, no matter how competent and how many years he had practiced medicine, every malpractice lawsuit would be a slam dunk.

Same for attorneys, accountants, engineers, architects, etc.

How many times do you hear that the government is massively in debt, and that there are only two options – either increase taxes, or cut government spending?

This story, which is repeated endlessly by policitians, economists and journalists is a fiction.

Go back to BEFORE the bursting of the U.S. housing bubble that peaked in 2006.
The roots of the crisis can be traced directly to affordable housing policies initiated by HUD in the mid 1990s and to massive risky loan purchases by government sponsored entities Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Who ran the show in the mid 1990s and encouraged HUD's risky loan purchases? Take a wild guess.
American Enterprise Institute?

Why not JBS.org

“I think that the responsibility that the Democrats had may rest more in resisting any efforts by Republicans in the Congress, or by me when I was President, to put some standards and tighten up a little on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.”– Former President Bill Clinton (D-AR), September 25, 2008

“Like a lot of my Democratic colleagues I was too slow to appreciate the recklessness of Fannie and Freddie. I defended their efforts to encourage affordable homeownership when in retrospect I should have heeded the concerns raised by their regulator in 2004. Frankly, I wish my Democratic colleagues would admit when it comes to Fannie and Freddie, we were wrong.”– Congressman Artur Davis (D-AL), September 30, 2008

Take President Clinton's and Congressman Davis' advise you people on the left and just admit you and your party were wrong once and for all.

All the whining and blaming anyone and everyone else but yourselves is getting really old.

The Obama FBI was alerted the Jihad activity of this family over two years ago. Concentrate! That is the issue.
It was the OBAMA administration that gave the younger brother permanent residence status on 9/11/12 -same day as the Benghazi attack. This happen after the family was on the TIDE list.
Go try to blame someone else for that.
However, I agree we need to tighten up our immigration policies. There are definitely undesirables that we are admitting.
No they weren't alerted of Jihad activity. Even noted reich-wing Grumpy Old Prick Peter King admits it. Every mistake ever made in your f8ckin' lifetime was clearly Obama's fault, huh? Fugetaboutit. http://www.google.com/url...

I know, it is so obvious that transcripts are necessary when selecting job applicants that it was amazing Davey tried to challenge it.

The recession stated in the 4th quarter of 2007. Not two years after Democrats tok control of Congress.( there were never more that 50 Democrats in the Senate.)
Show me the legislation the Democrats passed that created this recession in 9 months???
The Housing market started to decline in 2006.
This was over 6 years of a Bush Administration with every department of the federal government run by Republicans.
This mess was primarily a Republican generated mess.
My God, Bush started with a balanced budget on a path to surpluses.
You are an idiot, Dumb Dave:

"The victory of the Democratic Party in the 2006 Congressional elections was a major milestone for an additional reason: it saw the election of the first woman to serve as the Speaker of the House. Nancy Pelosi"

On Sept. 29, 2008 we had the biggest one day drop in the market, nearly two years after your Socialist Party won.

Actually, there were two books written by Obama concerning is life & he had been elected to the US in 2006 Senate.

He entered the national stage at the Democratic Convention in 2004.

If you don't know anything about Barack Obama, you must be the dumbest person on the planet.

Wouldn't it be nice if he offered clear and precise explanations surrounding the confusion of Obamacare?

I mean, he never did go on CNN to go over it "line by line" with us as he promised. And we're getting tired of the discouragement perpetrated by his own peeps.

That was dumb . Your link shows what Russia had and was alerting the US too-terrorist activity. Nor does it remove the older brother and mother from being on the TIDE list.
