Funny how the only stories on Republicans that are printed in the Kourant are those critizing them What about Obama and Dodd getting all the money from Fannie and Freddie? What about Doods questionable loan from Countywide. What about Rangel forgetting to pay his taxes? Shows this paper is a liberal piece of crap

There will be no revelation, no matter how outrageous, there will be no lie, no matter how calculated, that will be enough to dislodge supporters of Palin.

The kool-aid has been consumed, the mindless legions energized, and the country is about to face ruination on a scale heretofore unseen.

Our country is battered and beaten after 8 years of Bush. And now these people want to keep the decline and decay going.

The Republicans sure know how to run a campaign. Too bad they cannot run a country. These are among the most self-deceived people on the planet.

Sick basta*ds, all of you.

Sarah Palin's 15 minutes of fame are winding down. The public has lost interest as nearly everything we are finding out about Palin is BAD.
LIED about Bridge to Nowhere LIED about earmarks LIED about Troopergate LIED about a broken teleprompter at the convention
Makes RAPE victims pay for their own rape kits, but she has no problem letting the city of Wasila buy her a $42k SUV!!!
People are starting to say "Thanks, but no thanks" to Sarah Palin, and until John McCain puts someone on the ticket as VP that I believe can run the country (aka Romney), Obama's got my vote.

No, nearly everything REPORTED about her is bad, they just aren't printing the truth after the initial barrage of lies and smears.

You, like another useful idiot, are parroting the lies. Typical liberal skum, as to be a liberal, you have to be a liar and hypocrite.

Haha, that's funny...

your handle "Michelle Obama" is in itself a lie and you are accusing others of lying? lol

You have a serious case of self-projecting your own negative attributes, man.

Regarding Sarah Palin:

It's hilarious to see people like you, who kept on ragging on Obama for a supposed lack of experience, suddenly fawning over a 2nd rate former beauty queen whose sole experience is being mayor of a town of 6000 and two years as governor of a far away state that has a pop. of about 600k.

Talk about hypocrisy...

Ahhh, yes. Continue the beating of Palin by the LIEberil press. Astonishing how no one checks on snowbama's past history. His books are disjointed and can't be followed and no one seems interested in checking into his background. Simply amazing that no one is paying any attention to the man behind the curtain "Ozbama" the Great. Wake up people!

Ask Sarah if she thinks she's God..........
Ask John McCain if the president is the lord, or the government should be the decider in chief? There are simply some personal matters that are NONE OF THE GOVERNMENTS BUSINESS!

The pro-choice/ pro-life debate is only a fight for the gullible.

Both sides have their right to their own beliefs.

Voters shouldn't make this a deciding factor.

Should the president of the united states be the deciding factor, or is a private, personal issue, between you, your family, and God?

Some of us simply believe that the government shouldn't be in the middle of this particular situation.

Every election the GOP tries to scare voters into thinking that abortions are going to run rampant if the democratic nominee becomes president.
In the last eight years, since their "pro-life" president has been in charge, have any laws changed? Republicans had the majority in congress for at least 6 of those eight years; did they make any changes in abortion laws? Have abortion rates risen?

This is just another "false issue" brought up by the party who will lose if they can't succeed at scaring you for another election..........

Don't vote out of FEAR; paranoia will destroy ya!

WAKE UP!

You're right. People just can't accept the truth.
Sarah said "thanks but no thanks" to the Bridge to Nowhere, saving our government billions. She's eliminated all earmarks, accepts no Federal aid and was still able to pay $2,500 to every Alaskan citizen.
She eliminated taxes for all Alaskans. If elected, she'll do that for the rest of the country.
She successfully fought off every Russian attack on the U.S., thanks to her foreign policy expertise.
She is commander in chief of the Alaskan armed forces, making her the most militarily competent candidate.
She controls 99% of the world's oil supply, so she's no stranger to global market energy strategy.
She's a marksman at shooting wildlife from helicopters, particularly useful skills in the war on terrorists.
While mayor of a major Alaskan city, she successfully averted every attempt at terrorism; Osama bin Laden is powerless against her.
She is adept at human resources, able to staff many high governmental positions with her high school classmates, thereby streamlining the hiring process.
A vote against Palen is a vote against God and America.

Yes, he's the best thing since sliced bread according to the media. It's interesting that he went to Columbia University, but no one that went there during the time period he refers to in his book, remembers him.

The left wingers must be terrified of her, if they are going to all this trouble to get dirt on her. Good triumphs over evil every time.

Sara Palin bio in part:'Under her leadership, Alaska invested $5 billion in state savings, overhauled education funding, and implemented the Senior Benefits Program that provides support for low-income older Alaskans. She created Alaska’s Petroleum Systems Integrity Office to provide oversight and maintenance of oil and gas equipment, facilities and infrastructure, and the Climate Change Subcabinet to prepare a climate change strategy for Alaska.'

Will the media ask Obama “what fundamentals of the economy are broken”? How is Obama going to fix an economy if he believes that the Fundamentals of the American economy are broken?

When the fundamentals of an economy are broken, then there is NO Economy.(Economics 101) Obama has shown he knows absolutely nothing about a countries economy. These economic policies that Obama says are broken, are the economic policies signed into law in 1999 by the Democrat, Bill Clinton with his signing of the Financial Services Modernization Act. which removed tough regulations and restrictions governing the economy. Keep smiling….
