Well......why not ask the real questions that need answering? Is Obama fit for leadership? Have his policies resulted in good things for America or have they proven to be disasters?

With reference to why media outlets other than Fox do not interview Palin and demand real answers, the answer is simple. Palin (and three or four other leading Republican presidential contenders) are under contract to Fox news. They cannot speak to other news services without permission from Fox and Fox simply does not grant such permission.

Convenient, huh?

If you had a grain of intellectual curiosity, Brian, or an ounce of independent thought not planted in your one lonely brain cell by right wing media, you could readily find the commonly known information about Palin, et. al., being under contract to Fox "News."
Take a little personal responsibility and a moment out from laughing your arse off to inform yourself of the readily available truth known to anyone who cares to find out the truth.

Haha, I'm sorry but I think this is funny.

Personally I think Palin is stupid, but that could just be because that's the way the media portrays her, I don't know.
I think it's funny when you say "The truth???It has NO liberal friends" because modern day "conservatives" and "liberals" are basically the same thing. I mean what has Obama really done that differently than Bush? Not a whole lot, I mean, it's not like he actually passed universal health care, he isn't ending war, he's doing basically the same thing anyone else would be doing right now. I mean, all the scary "liberal" things he says he's going to do, he won't do, why would Obama tax big corporations when Rockefeller was one of his major contributors for office? I mean just look at his administration, he has more lobbyists than any other president IN HISTORY, all people from some form of big corporation.

Keep in mind it doesn't matter who the president is, there are people behind the curtain pulling their strings.

"Have we come to a time when the president of the United States or any man who wishes to be the president must doff his cap in the presence of this high finance, and say,‘You are our inevitable master, but we will see how we can make the best of it’?"
-Wilson, Woodrow. The New Freedom, A Call For the Emancipation of the Generous Energies of a People,(1913)

You know what's ironic about that quote, as you can see that book was officially published in 1913, the same year he was elected president, and the same year he signed the Federal Reserve Act, not to mention his whole campaign was funded by people like the Rothschildes, Warburges, Rockefellers, and more. So, his campaign is funded by high finances, even though he is saying we have to fight them, and the first thing he does when he becomes president is put the power of controlling the nations currency into the hands of a PRIVATE CORPORATION (the current federal reserve).

Basically what I'm saying is it doesn't matter that much what party gets put in office.

Also, I would like to note that people like Bush, Palin, McCain, they are not conservative, and Obama is not liberal, in fact NO modern liberal and NO modern conservative is really part of those groups, and here is why:

Conservatism and Liberalism have NOTHING to do with spending money, I repeat NOTHING TO DO WITH SPENDING MONEY.
Surprised? Well you shouldn't be, Conservatism is about being conservative with government, and that LEADS to how much money they spend, but that isn't what it's about, it's about how big the Government is. And how is having a military base in every country in the world "small government", how is having the government invested in every major corporation in the world small government? It isn't, and that is what the neo-cons support.

Liberalism is about freedom, in fact the word liberal comes from the latin term liberalis meaning "pertaining to a free man". Now let me ask you, how is eliminating the right to bare arms freedom? How is the government controlling all your business freedom? It isn't.

Nothing more, nothing less, a TRUE conservative believes in limited government, and a TRUE liberal believes in freedom, but to have TRUE freedom, doesn't that require limited government? I mean, after all, the bigger the government the less the freedom.

Therefore it is my opinion that a TRUE liberal and a TRUE conservative are the same thing, a libertarian, the freedom party, the constitutional party, whatever you want to call them, if they are a true patriot and a true American (in my opinion) then they are the same thing.

This article should be entitled President Obama is not fit for leadership. He never was a mayor, Governor, ran a business nor met a payroll. He has absolutely no executive experience whatsoever and it is really showing.

I, too, thought Tory sounded pretty good...until I got to this line: "Now let me ask you, how is eliminating the right to bare arms freedom?"

I hate to be one of those nitpickers about spelling, but often misspelling turns a thought into a joke. So to answer Tory's question, I would say that bare arms means no shirt sleeves to bind you; hence freedom of arms movement. Now we all know that "arms" has two meanings -- the appendages on your body and weapons used in war. So would "bare arms" mean only a small amount of weapons? But if Tory had written "...the right to bear arms..." he might have meant we all have the right to find a bear and take off his arms. But just how much freedom does the average person have to find a bear and rip off his arms? Not much, I'd say.

Now does anyone remember what Tory's dissertation was all about? Barely?

The Federal Reserve a private organization? Yes
Can the Federal Reserve control the economy of the United States by controlling interest rates? Yes
Has the Fed ever been audited? NO.
Was the IRS created behind the FED? Yes

If you want to educate yourself about what Tory is talking about you might want to see a brief history of the Fed. Check out this website: The Biggest Scam In History

Liberal Progressive Criminal communist will do anything to stop a real patrotic American from representing her country as president.

Palin is very smart and better yet has real Wisdom unklike that dumb clod in the white house with BIG ears and a pack a day habit that has runined the economy and your childrens future from extreme debt to bail out losers.

Weather a president is smart has never had any bearing on the office and I'm sure many of the least intelligent of them has problably done the most good.

Here's something about intelligence - G. W. Bush had a higher I.Q. than John Kerry - but Al Gore scored slightly higher than G.W. I can't say about B. Hussein Obama since he apparently thought that there are 58 states.

The Post is never going to increase sales on the paper if they continue to have writers/editors with these points of view. This is a retirement community, and a small town in a Red county at that. Wake up.

The author of the Palin article was Michael Joseph Gross, not Michael Gross. As a triple-barreled writer yourself, I hope you will understand my desire that you use the correct byline.

Listen here black water for brains. I know that Palin is contracted with FOX… My question was, Where’s the proof for this stupid allegation;
“They cannot speak to other news services without permission from Fox”
And what do I get??? The same old stupid attacks from a liberal who has nothing but black water between its ears!
So as usual you stupid liars can’t prove your stupid lies!!! Go figure.
What a loser you are. No wonder you want and need people like obummer to wipe your pitiful weak a s ses! You wimp.

Again...

This article is about Sarah Palin. Obviously, you know what's been written in this article is true, or you would be contesting it's content.
