No the point is that people who thought that Reno was right to not investigate potential crimes by her boss have no business accusing the investigation board of being swayed by Palin.

So the point of your post is that Palin is cut from the same cloth?

Please review your facts. Khalidi has never been a member of the PLO and McCain has given him millions. The McCan'ts refuse to look at McCain's ties to people like Keating and Liddy - these are real bad guys that he had real relationships with. It will all be moot in about 10 hours when McCain and Palin can fade away into political obscurity. The GOP will finally realize that saving the party will mean dropping the extreme right nut jobs.

Another clueless Republican. The media didn't "get the story out too late," it was just released yesterday. Nice try though.

Palin inherited the three-person panel that cleared her. They were all appointed by the previous Governor, NOT PALIN.
Do try to get the facts at least occasionally. Or did you know the facts but are smearing Palin anyway?
...aaaaand she freely chose to retain them. You might want to check your own facts before questioning others.

Ladies and Gentleman just 1 more day before they elect obama and biden into the White House.

So now is the time to get back to work for 2010. History has show one party does not rule for long in the USA. We need to move the Republican party to its roots. Less government, less sending, less taxes, and less welfare.

Once the stories come out that should have my now. A lot of the news outlets will be weaker in 2 years. We need to keep this out front about how they covered for the dimocrats and not let them do it again.

In 2 years once unemployment hit 9% to 10%, and the rate on home loans are in the low to mid teens. We need to show the following:

Pelosi and her illegal workers

Reid and his land deals

Dodd and Frank in bed with Fannie, Freddie, and the banks.

And that is just the start. We hit them on unemployment and why our home home heating bills have (to use obama's own word) SKYROCKETED under obama.

We hit them on every mis-step, every slip of the tongue. We do like they do just harder and longer. That will get us to 2010 and then obama's camp comes under fire from then to 2012.

If obama puts his wife out there to do his work, she is fair game. She hates the USA anyway. We can tear biden apart on his own record so he should not be a problem. obama was hiding him from the media for a few days already. obama will give us all we will need to take back the WH in 2012.
Well well well

The level of hate, racism and anti-Americanism that Obama has voluntarily immersed himself in for the last 25 years is staggering.
Obama, Ayers, Wright, Khalidi, Farrakhan, Michelle, Rezko, Dohrn, Odinga and the rest of Obama's hard-left coalition will be defeated by intelligent, decent and caring Americans everywhere.
It's hysterical that all of these associations would preclude Obama from joining the ranks of the FBI, CIA and better yet, National Security Council. But he can be elected president???!!! UNBELIEVABLE!

If this was an Obama story, it would be the main headline. I call this serious vindication. I actually think that we need to see a few things cleared up with Obama, but apparently that doesn't matter because people are sheep.

Whatever makes you feel better. All I know is 4k Americans are dead as a result of an unnecessary war that you, surely, supported.

You knuckledraggers like to talk about personal responsibility, but your "walk" is pure cowardice and irresponsibility.

Just because Sarah Palin had the right to do something, doesn't mean that it was the right thing to do. I fear that Mavericks do not generally understand this concept.

Agreed, but maybe make-believe "mavericks" just don't understand.

I serviced did you. I know people that are over there right now do you. And most think that the dimocrats are against them. Most feel good about what has be done and what they are doing. So pinhead words do not hurt me, what hurts are cowards sitting back here who have never put in the time.

All you Ripub supporters...why not move off to a different media source that supports your views. There's plenty out there.

If you don't like the headlines here...find one that works elsewhere and spare us your whinning!

Look forward to hearing from you in 4 years 'Need a Brain'...or a least a 3rd party that's worth a c_r_a_p.

Her bumbling interviews with Couric? Other interviews where she demonstrated she doesn't know what the job of VP is? Or what the first amendment protects? I think Sarah did a pretty job of trashing herself.
