i guess i would have to see it to believe it...personally, there is no good presidents anymore....people will be crying "peace, peace"...and that is when destruction will fall...in other words, just when people think peace is finally at hand, destruction will fall. so i dont really care who leads the country anymore...well, maybe i do, cause i really hated the idea of palin in office.

Yeah well your sex has led us into a little too many wars over the years so, like it or not - it will be our turn sooner than later.

Also - humankind's not going anywhere without us - so fall in line or turn gay.

I love it, too. Another favorite of mine comes from Gandhi.
He said, "I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. They are so unlike your Christ."
That quote is such a stark reminder to me how hard it is to put our claimed Christian beliefs into practice.
Ghandi - one great human being.

Upon meeting Ghandi, Einstein was quoted as saying to him - "because of the man you are, I believe in a man named Jesus."

Show me that picture of Hillary bawling. You are prone to exaggeration. That is your fault not a female issue.

Well,

I see it this way. She is getting her just dessert. Whatever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

She dogged President-Elect Obama. He has his balls nailed to the wall with lies and rhetoric. She was a loose cannon and McCain paid for it dearly.

Sarah has stated the following about being blamed for all the lies that she spewed during the campaign:

She said: "I consider it cowardly. It's not true. That's cruel, it's mean-spirited, it's immature, it's unprofessional and those guys are jerks if they came away taking things out of context and then tried to spread something on national news that's not fair and not right."

Now she is offended by words being said about her. Now that is a double standard if I ever heard one.

She seemed very irritated when the tables were turned on her and she was he object of the lies.

I do not have any sympathy for her. What goes around comes around. It is not nice to lie on someone and it is not nice to say all the bad things an misleading things she said about President-Elect Obama. Karma is a wonderful thing.

Palin is as much to blame as McCain and the rest of the Republican party. They stand for hate to those that differ in opinion. They stand for gaining power by any means neccessary, even if obtaining power means throwing out the Consitution. They stand for being hypocrites when they say they are believers in God and saying life is so precious (abortions) but have no problem throwing us into a meat grinder like Iraq for however long it takes. They stand for arrogance, thinking the rest of the world should be like the U.S. and our way of life. Americans have become so sick of the Republicans for doing what they have done to us. The world is sick of them for the disrespectful way the Republicans treat other nations' people and their beliefs and trying to force these nations to live a lifestyle they do not want. So yes, Ms. Bimbo Palin, you are to blame. You represent all of the above.
I believe JOHN MCCAIN asked Sarah to run with him. She didn't go for looking for the job so John lost the election, not Sarah. Of course, B Oboma has a little something to do with them losing. I'm a Republican but damned if I would vote for another one for a while. It shows how much of a chicken shit party the Republicans are to lay the blame on Ms. Palin and you too jjgbl. Go ahead....make my day!

The naive Palin was thrown into the fire in a hurry and not groomed for the job at hand.
The RNC needs to take most of the blame in their judgement of thinking that McCain absolutely had to counter with a woman running mate once Obama selected Biden rather than Hillary Clinton and it backfired.
Palin entered the arena like a house afire and the flame quickly flickered out.
She might re-enter if Ted Stevens loses his Senate seat in Alaska and she learns more about the Washington scene but others like Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal have the same idea and can't be underestimated.
The G.O.P has many wounds to heal before ever being of prominence again.
They brought a small town innocent person and threw her into the Washington Professional Political machinery and it was sad to watch-

While she maybe wonderful in Alaska , coming into Washington DC and not prepared for the Political Game that is played here is unfair.

When you combine the Political,Media and K Street Spin Masters and thru a small town politican into that Mix on a National Stage, you get what you got.

Good evening,
you do have a problem with women, I tell you because if you think Palin is underinformed on world and national politics than Obama is twice underinformed on world and national politics. You have forgotten with your amalgamation of varied ideas and beliefs the women. They make up half of the population. There is no amalgamation of gender in the USA, clearly not. You should see to it that you integrate first the women and then the rest.It was a shame how Palin was decried by those women haters and how Hillary was dropped by those women haters too.
A shame, huh? It would be a shame to have a smart ass like Palin for vice president. She lost my vote the minute she opened her mouth....and she pimped out her pregnant daughter and special needs baby for votes!

We love her! I just wish she could have been allowed to say what she really thought to Gibson and the ding bat from CBS, Katie Couric or however you spell it.

she wore what she had always wore for years,nothing wrong with anything for the most part comfortable and decent,

then the GOP tried to play Obama as an elitist, which could have been a good move with Joe Plumber and Plain Next door Girl Palin-

then the GOP--turned around and sent her shopping and dressing in clothes that are worn by "elitist" - for example in the mind of Joe Plumber and his wife, who do they equate as spending over $100,000+ on clothes for less than 6months

how do you spin that, She should have went to Macy's and bought her clothes showing she is like the "Working Gal, down the Street"

instead she went shopping like Paris Hilton

bad political move, McCain should ask for his money back from his "Consultants"

if mccain and palin would have been elected, they would have made the US history books, as no incumbent has ever ousted their opposition in almost 100 years when the rate of employment growth was at a 3.3 or less. the govt. is currently reporting the no. (which imo is inflated) at 2.2--each tenth is absolutely critical. thus, a republican had virtually no chance. since the elite own obama and mccain, hey the bright side either way is the big agenda will largely be the same either way.

Obama was very influential in helping seal the fate of gays & lesbians regarding Proposition 8 in California, and the anti-gay amendment that passed in Florida.

After reading how Obama threw gays & lesbians underneath the bus, how Obama fanned the flames of hate that many blacks feel toward gays & lesbians…..all this, just to get more votes……is it any wonder that 70% of black voters voted against gays & lesbians in California and Florida????

Obama should be ashamed of himself. Such strategies are right out the Karl Rove playbook, Obama’s strategy was even worse than Rove’s…….please read below for yourself:

Sure are a lot of Palin haters. Saying she said this and that. I wonder- did Obama ever apologize for that "lipstick on a pig" comment? If he had just attacked her policies that would have been fine I thought that was very rude. I lost respect for him after that. And the only thing liberals seemed to have on her in the beginning was that she was a mother and a politician. What about fathers who are also politicians? Shouldn't such judgments be considered sexist? At the very least mothers all across America should be offended.
