If Palin was as good at policy making as she is at self-promotion we could all feel better. As it is the fact that some people consider her qualified to be President is one of the scariest facts of contemporary life.

The fact that people thought Obama was qualified to be president is THE scariest fact of contemporary life. His ineptness and inability to lead is now clearly apparent, but too late for the country at large.

I live just south of Littlestown. I went out to my front porch and lo and behold, Sarah Palinn's tour bus drove by the front of my house. Talk about good timing. I wish the bus would have stopped and palin would step our, but alas, one can't expect miracles. Well at least I saw the mystery bus. I hope she shows up somewhere in town so people won't be dissapointed. I heard she slipped onto the battlefield yesterday, and people met her at her hotel. Well,I was lucky just to see the bus. I do hope she decides to run, but Sarah can be somewhat of a mystery.

I don't think Obama is going to quit and make money on a teabagger best selling book. Who among the Republicans will beat him in 2012?

So she didn't show...just like a politician, can't count on them for anything. No surprise here!

Why couldn't she answer the questions, why do we have to read her book to get answers? Apparently she hasn't a clue, there's a recession going on, we need to eat and pay $4.00 a gallon for gas to get back a forth to our jobs not buy her book. Like I said, just like a politician.

Be careful what you wish for people. She really isn't any different, except she has a big mouth!

You need to walk the walk not just talk the talk to impress me.

Ineptness? Get over it. The economy is improving. Here's just 12 reasons that are based in truth-based reality and not FOX news or any of the other Corporatists.

1. Americans are gaining confidence. The Conference Board, a private research group, revealed that its April consumer confidence index jumped to 65.4, which is up 2.5% from March’s figure.

2. We’re charging more on our credit cards. The Federal Reserve says that in February, total consumer debt climbed 3.8%, marking the fifth consecutive monthly uptick and the largest increase since June 2008.

3. Companies are ordering more stuff. The U.S. Commerce Department reported that March durable goods orders rose 2.5%.

4. We want more cars and gadgets. A closer look at last month’s Commerce Department figures shows a 3.7% hike in the demand for autos and a whopping 10% spike in computer orders.

5. Americans are becoming more efficient. Last year, the U.S. Labor Department recorded the largest annual rise in productivity since 2002.

6. The stock market is rebounding.

7. People are moving into houses. Recently, the Census Bureau reported that the country’s home-vacancy rate slipped to 2.6% in the first quarter of 2011 from 2.7% percent in last year’s fourth quarter.

8. Prices aren’t shooting up as fast as before.

9. Companies’ sales are improving. The National Association for Business Economics is a group of economists that periodically surveys numerous businesses to see how they are faring. In its most recent report, 63% of NABE’s economists report that business sales were higher in this year’s first quarter than they were in Q4 2010. It was also the third straight quarter that this figure posted an increase.

10. Corporate profits are rising, too. The NABE assembles what it calls a Net Rising Index for profit margins. This indicator is computed by subtracting the percentage of economists who report falling profits from their surveyed companies from the corresponding ratio of those reporting rising profits.(So if 50% posted higher profits and 50% reported lower profits, the index would be zero.) In the first quarter of 2011, the profit margin NRI jumped to an incredible 31, which is the highest level in 28 years!

11. Experts are foreseeing economic growth. Finally, these NABE experts are nearly unanimous in their outlook for significant growth in the economy for this year. Approximately 94% of the economists think that the U.S. gross domestic product will increase at least 2% for calendar year 2011.

12. The Fed thinks the economy is getting better. The Federal Reserve recently announced that it will proceed with its June plans to terminate a $600 billion Treasury bond-buying program (instead of extending it further). The Fed originally implemented this program in an effort to boost the economy by encouraging spending, lowering loan rates, and enhancing stock prices. After seeing the stats listed above and others like them, the group believes that the economy is indeed looking stronger; therefore, it requires less government intervention to prop it up.

Please come back to reality. We could use a sane voice and not another Chicken Little.

This sums up our current president. Shameful and embarrasing every day.

Barack Obama's decision to play golf on Memorial Day was disrespectful and hardly presidential

Well, two wrongs don't make a right. If you're scared by Obama's ineptness as a leader, this country doesn't need Sarah Palin to be our next President. As someone posted earlier, she is great at self-promoting and is a great PR person but when it comes to "nuts and bolts" knowledge of government and foreign affairs, she is a "one screw loose". Just like Obama, Palin is a great public speaker. Just like Obama, peel away the layers of fluff and what do you have? Certainly not leadership qualities.

Nah, what's really scary is this once-great country is in deep trouble if the current crop of politicians (all parties) is the best we have to offer.

Good for her! She never "said" she was going to Gettysburg, yet she went anyway, and on her terms, NOT as it was "decided" she should go by the national media. Who are the media anyway that they should decide what should be done and how it should be done to be acceptable to the American people? WE'LL decide what we like and who we like and when and how to bo both... I actually laughed out loud thinking about the time and effort the media put into setting up their equipment thinking that Palin would "bend" her schedule to accommodate their wishes. Pathetic and obsolete fools...

Palin - pathetic, ignorant, self-absorbed, know nothing, inept, stupid...oh, I need my Thesaurus. The woman makes me physically ill. Her "fans" are as sad as Sarah. Knock Obama all you want. At least he has a brain and he uses it most of the time. Palin is a moron. She can't string five words together and make sense. All hail Sarah Dipstick and her followers. Please, follow her off a cliff.

Monday, there was a breakfast at the White House for the Gold Star families. The President and First Lady were the hosts. Later that afternoon, he attended a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery.

What did YOU do? Attend a parade? Barbeque some hamburgers? Tell us!!!

The couple mentioned in this article went to see a movie. You aren't giving them any grief for it.

Again, what did you do Monday?

We agree with those expressing concern about the two parties. The D's are in the pockets of the social security disability lawyers, Wall Street bankers and those promoting so called global "free trade". For the past twenty years the R's have not understood the idea of "there is no such thing as a free lunch". They did not study post WW2 history neither the part where in the 1950 and 1960's when America invested in her future via infrastructure projects like the highway system and then also came close to becoming energy self sufficient until Reagans budget director undid the bipartisan progress made on that issue in the 70's and early 1980's. Now here we are in 2011 importing oil to make gasoline and billions of plastic food store bags and containers. Most heinously,however, the R's and most D's did not study what happened to the long gone Soviet Union, after the old communist behomoth invaded Afghanistan. We, with "conservative support" stirred the pot in that part of the world hoping in order to kill the "soviet demon" economically. It worked!!! The USSR occupied Afghanistan and then completely collapsed replaced by mafia corporatism in much smaller Russia. The West won the Cold War and then became self centered and complacent. We ignored General and President Eisenhowers warning on the power of the military industrial complex. The USA bought the line that we could fight numerous wars costing trillions without a draft and that during that period we could reduce the maximum tax on the super rich to the lowest percent since the pre- depression Roaring Twenties. Borrowing from Red China did not pose a problem to our politicians. Compare todays maximum tax rate in the "low thirties" to patriotism inspired 91 percent during WW2 and 61 percent during the Cold War Era (1946 to 1984 or so). Then , to boot, the R's just campaigned on "creating jobs' and have spent their time on trying to destroy our modest social security system for seniors and medicare while, exactly as Newt said, focusing on "right wing social engineering issues". Nothing on jobs!!!!!!!Nothing on growing the economy. Nothing on revenues, just keeping taxes low on our new super rich. There has been class warfare all right , from the very top rung of corporatists down to the middle class The Dems ineffectively tried to deal with the economy and the R's blocked everything. The people don't matter, do they????? It's all about lobby groups and the billions of globo-dollars they represent.

What was Obama supposed to do after he was at Arlington?
What did you do?
Bush should have been over in Iraq looking for that yellow cake and the WMD's all the time. Then he could really say being there and Afghanistan is really a bad idea.
