Not ready to be President - "Maybe Vice President". Someone needs to understand how our government succession works. The VP needs to be someone who is ready to be President. The VP position is not a position for someone who needs training wheels (and a whole lot more general competence).

Do you realy think Biden, Gore, or Quayle would make a good President. No- at least the U.S. voters didnt think so.

Yeah - why have a VP who needs training wheels when you can have a president who needs them.

As a moderate libertarian (used to use the word conservative, but it has become a useless label in public anymore), I find the Palin show funny to watch, but wouldn't want near the White House. She is better looking that Paris Hilton, but not as bright though....:D

I'm sorry but your post is so ridiculous and misinformed I don't know where to start.
First off you DO know Palin never said she could see Russia from her house, right? You DO know that was a Saturday Night Live sketch, right?
Second, let's just run down a list of Palin's accomplishments ..
1. House Bill 4001 and Senate bill 4002 were signed into law by Governor Palin on August 25, 2008. SB 4002 pays $1,200 to each resident who qualifies. The money for these payments comes from the state's natural resource revenue. This bill also suspends the state's tax on gasoline.
Gee... no state gas tax? Yeah - that's horrible isn't it??
2. House Bill 3001 for awarding a contract to TransCanada Alaska for developing and building a pipeline stretching for 1,715 miles from the Prudhoe Bay treatment plant to Alberta Canada.
Oh - a bill that would bring us closer to using OUR OWN natural resources, thus lessening our need for foreign oil..? THE NERVE OF HER!
3. She cut unnecessary spending by actually (gasp) cutting spending!! She got rid of the former governor's private chef because she can cook for her family all by herself. She got rid of the former governor's private jet effectively saving $62k quarterly (those were the payments for the jet)
Let's have a looky loo at what Obama has done thus far.
1. Promised "transparency" but has yet to follow through - passing an astronomical spending bill without even reading the damn thing. Now.. this is after he said "I want to go line by line through every item in the Federal budget and eliminate programs that don't work, and make sure that those that do work work better and cheaper." Also he said "Instead of allowing lobbyists to slip big corporate tax breaks into bills during the dead of night, we will make sure every single tax break and earmark is available to every American online."
2. He said he no lobbyists would work in his administration yet he nominated William Lynn for Secretary of Defense - do you know who that is? In case you don't - "a defense expert who is currently a vice president and lobbyist for one of the country's biggest defense contractors" http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2009/01/... Oh and do you know who is Secretary of Defense right now? Robert Gates who was originally appointed by ... get ready here it comes ... BUSH!! But America doesn't need "more of the same" right?
3. http://www.votesmart.org/voting_category.php... <-- his voting record (He REFUSED to vote for a bill in the Illinois State Senate that would have increased penalties for drug traffickers, and voted AGAINST a bill that would have delivered the death penalty to gang members who murder first responders.) Call me crazy but I'd like to see LESS drug traffickers and cop killers.
And in the senate he didn't really umm... you know ... show up for work.
http://www.mydd.com/story/2008/1/12/145129/92...
" 90th General Assembly - 1997-1998
Senate days - 118 days (59 days per year; 1.13 days per week)
91st General Assembly - 1999-2000
Senate days - 112 days (56 days per year; 1.08 days per week)
92nd General Assmebly - 2001-2002
Senate days - 118 days (59 days per year; 1.13 days per week)
93rd General Assembly - 2003-2004
Senate days - 161 days (80 days per year; 1.52 days per week)"
I work 40+ hours a week .. why would someone who has a much more important job than I do (like POTUS!!) spend significantly less time doing a job that, in theory, would prepare him for the one he has right now?

All this anal jargon on Palin. You people were fed a line of bull by the left media, and comedy stations and you acually believed it. You fell for Obama's Rev. Wright teleprompter retoric. Which was a line of BS. See his flub, when the teleprompter screws up? You're just now seeing the real Barack Obama. Maybe it will take a heavy dose of swine flu in your family before you realize this man is incompetent, dangerous in these times of war, and purely self absorbed.

I agree with you, totally.
So, why do we have a president who has never even run, as someone else said, a "Dairy Queen?"
Obama, still, does not meet your qualifications to VP, muchless the Prezzzzzzzz.
Hum...
Graduate Columbia U and Harvard Law School, with magna cum laude; was President of the Harvard Law Review. He headed/directed several nonprofit groups, and was on the board of directors of several organizations.
Taught constitutional law at Chicago Law for 12 years.
3 terms Ill Senate
2 years US Senate, until he really started running.

VS.

1 semester (sem). Hawaii Pacific College; 2 sems at N. Idaho Community College; 2 sems U of Idaho; 1 sem Matanuska-Susitna Community College; 3 sems back at U of Idaho to finish her BS in communications Journalism.
Then TV reporter; Wasilla City council; Mayor of Wasilla; and then Gov. for a year.

Now I was never big on the qualifications thing. And I was a little concerned about Pres. Obama's being a short on DC background, but then sometimes I think our candidates have too much DC background. Either way, there is more to a person than how much time they are Governor, House Member, or Senator. Pres. Obama's background also showed strength in education, the understanding of law, and at least more than just a couple years in a higher office (something more than mayor of a small town). And he spent more than 6 months demonstrating that he could hold his own in a rough and tumble primary.

Now Sarah Palin, was dumped on the scene 3 months before the election. And her performance alone showed she was not prime time material. I'm sure with enough tutoring she will look prime time in 3 years for those that want to throw away the next election.

I would have been quite happy with a Chuck Hagel or Steve Forbes type candidate, but alas the primaries were not going to let someone like that thru... However, if the debtor neocons (happy armchair warriors) put forth more warmongers, I will keep voting against them as hard as I can.

Ivy league schools don't churn out geniuses. People ought to focus on actual accomplishments than a few pieces of paper (forged or not). Palin was more than a mayor of a small town .. she was also governor and she did a LOT of positive things for her state. Obama was MSM's golden child and Palin got the shaft coverage wise .. but whatever, what's done is done.

I just get irritated when people call her stupid and try to minimize the things she's done. Whether or not she's capable of being VP or even POTUS .. I don't know. But what I DO know is she's certainly not stupid.

Oh - and when her teleprompter wasn't working (I don't recall which speech.. was it when she was nominated for VP candidate..?) she delivered her speech without it. Can't say the same for the current POTUS.

LOL on the "forged or not" drivel. The Pres. Obama haters just can't accept that he has real talent, even if one doesn't agree with his positions, which I certainly don't. But I am not racist, nor naive enough to think that one party (of either color) is saintly, nor stuck in conspiracy theory junk to believe the garbage out there about Obama.

Secondly, I never called her stupid. I said it was obvious that she wasn't ready for prime time. And it is also obvious that the vast majority of America agree on that. And she was only in a higher office (Gov) for 1.5 years before she got to the spot light. Before that it was all small town stuff, that is simply reality.

Yes, Ivy league schools can turn out some very average people. However, it is obvious again that Pres. Obama is not just average.

You left out some other qualifications:
Had a mentor in Hawaii named Frank Marshall Davis, who was a known Communist. He was under survelience until his death by the FBI. Obama thought of him as a 2nd father. They dabbled in Communist literature. Read it for yourself, It is in Obama's book. He is a friend of Walter Veltroni, Former Italian Communist Party head, leader of the Socialist Party in Italy, wrote the preface in Obama's book in Italian, met with Obama in 2005 in Washington. William Ayers, gathered at Ayers home along with many other well healed Chicago who's who to kick off his election efforts. Also, worked closely with Ayers on the Woods Foundation. What is Obama doing consistantly associating with Communists, and anti-government people? He and Michelle were and still are closely knit with Louis Farrakan. There is a group picture with Michelle and Mrs. Farrakan. If you don't know who this guy is google him. Obama's eduacation was financed by an Arab. Now I wonder why a rich Arab would finance and groom Barack Obama. So you see in my book, he is is quite qualified to be a member of the European Union, but not President of the USA!

Yep, he cannot speak without the teleprompter. His recent gaffe on TV proves that. His press secretary is beyond a dunce. He is an embarrassment. You know the saying," you are the company you keep"!
