<quoted text>Your not terribly politically astute...Palin brought in more votes than you can imagine and saved McCain from being even more embarrassed. How can you call her an atrocity and not say a word about the racist, plagiarist, liar named Joe Biden?
"You're" not 'your.' She was an absolute atrocity. Even my most conservative friends found her to be an embarrassment to the election, and I'd say the rest of the nation feels the same since she isn't exactly a front-runner in any other upcoming elections and apparently resorted to a reality show. I can imagine a lot of votes and she didn't bring in enough of them. Obviously, since they didn't win the election.

<quoted text>So, he initiated it? Clinton and his Democrat House and Senate could have shut it down cold:
Dec 8, 1993:
NAFTA signed into law
The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is signed into law by President Bill Clinton. Clinton said he hoped the agreement would encourage other nations to work toward a broader world-trade pact.

Thus, why I said INITIATED it. Reading comprehension. Obviously I knew about NAFTA previous to your regurgitation of what I had already proposed.

So, I reiterated, NAFTA was initiated under Bush. So any right-winger who b*tches about it can thank Bush for pushing for it.

<quoted text>Newsflash: The right wing was about to sit that election out until Palin was placed on the ticket. We hated McCain more than Romney.
You're as stupid about politics as you are about history. The fact that you people defend Joe Biden is proof of your hypocrisy to boot.
How many bigoted, racist idiots do you defend? Rush Limbaugh for one. Many others as well. You defend your ilk and we defend ours. That's how politics works.

Recall that the only time when McCain was leading in the polls was the two weeks after the convention.
Thanks to Katie Couric and the manipulation of CBS, Palin was presented as incredibly stupid.
The record shows she was a competent executive, and her #2 won the highest total of any AK governor ever in 2010, which IMHO proves that the state only rejected the style not the substance.
Not to mention her 2012 primary picks were good. If Missouri had listened to her, Todd Akin would have not won the primary, and a third pro-life female senator would have been elected.
Katie Couric didn't give the answers, Palin did. Either she's not a prepared public speaker or she's a complete idiot. I'm voting on the latter rather than the former. But don't blame Katie Couric for Palin's awful responses. Someone who wants to be VP should be prepared for anything and everything.

Many women especially who wanted to vote for her did so only because she was a woman. Your side argues the same fact (as George did above) about Obama and his skin color. Little did many of these voters actually know about their chosen candidate.

I voted for Palin hoping McCain would have the decency to drop dead. McCain and Barry Hussein are two turd floating in the same communist cesspool.

<quoted text>No, you don't. Your lies are easily debunked. Now, let's see you defend the documented behavior of Joe Biden...racist, plagiarist and liar.
Can you really defend a woman who claims Russia as her foreign policy experience?

As for being a liar - are you not familiar with politics? Not one person has occupied the White House who was not a skilled liar. Not one.

Joe Biden made some off-color comments. You have no issue with Palin's "shuck and jive"? C'mon. Let's not pretend there aren't racists on the right.

The GOP hasn't won New York City, since 1924.
McCain selected Palin because they wanted female VP to pick up Clinton primary voters. The RNC is a feckless body who had little to do with the selection of her.
McCain wanted Lieberman as VP, the left hates him too, and I recall he was on the losing side previously.
They edited the interview, because they are biased. Why is it that you can bash Fox News as biased from end to end, but cannot understand that the rest of the MSM really is left wing?
Probably for the same reason you don't believe Faux isn't biased. I don't think they needed to edit anything. Even in live TV appearances Palin made herself look foolish.

This was from your post:
"While initial signing was possible during his term, negotiations made slow, but steady, progress. President Clinton would go on to make the passage of NAFTA a priority for his administration, despite its conservative and Republican roots"
Liberals just can't accept any responsibility for their leaders actions.
A. I have no negative opinions about NAFTA and I said nothing against Clinton for signing it.

B. A few of you denied the "right," namely G H.W. Bush had anything to do with it. So it seems that you're the one in denial.

You will have to get used to talking to Georgie (you know him as Hugh). He never directly answers anything. The minute he gets uncomfortable with the direction of the conversation he either adds a variable to the equation or tries to divert the conversation to another topic. For example, you say "Palin was a bad choice." He says, "Oh yeah? Let's talk about Biden."

What, better than the Occupier who's foreign policy experience is being an Indonesian Muslim!

BTW, Andrew Cuomo made a similar comment to Palin.

I say, do you actually read my posts? I've been quite critical of FOX and I openly admit that it is biased towards the center right, but isn't as conservative as people think (Bill O'Reilly is center left, and a notorious supporter of gun bans)

If you expect that the media would be doing the country a favor by throwing her softballs, and not asking tough questions, on the fly, so that voters can see what it is their thinking about investing in, I would have to say that you have some very unreasonable expectations about the role of the press.

You also defend Fox. You play both sides against the middle.

How many other politicians lie about the circumstances surrounding the death of their own wife, blaming an innocent person and smearing his good name?

Want to play grammar Nazi? Fine. Watch every keystroke you execute from now on, you petty wench.
Again, how dense are you not to be able to understand that McCain was going to lose no matter what? Palin saved him from only receiving 42% of the vote instead of 46%.
When you can win a gubernatorial election in any state and have an 80% approval rating, you let us know.

Hey, genius...Bush "initiated" Eastern European missile defense...Obama shut it down. Bush "initiated" the Constellation program...Obama shut it down. Bush "initiated" a production run of 750 F-22 Raptors...Obama shut it down at 187 aircraft.
Just admit you were wrong.

I've seen him criticize Fox far more than defend it. You lefties are too stupid to see that Fox is pretty much down there with the MSM these days. And from Day One, they have always had a large number of leftist commentators.
