Wow, you Obamacons really need to watch less TV.
Except for Fox News, right?

Obamacons? Name calling suits you well.

Au contraire: Didn't you see Couric's interview with Palin? Palin was unable to cite only a single accomplishment achieved by McCain during his 22 years in office.

Obama, at least, graduated from Harvard at or near the top of his class. Palin, by contrast, was barely able to stay in college for more than a year--allegedly she attended six schools before getting a degree--if she did get a degree, that is.
Also, Palin, who didn't get a passport until last year, seems to think that merely living in proximity to Russia gives her foreign experience?!? Whoo.
So is an Ivy league degree a requirement to be a presidential candidate, and I assume vice presidential candidate?

If so, Biden is not fit to be VP. Biden publicly stated he was a "lazy student" at the Univ. Delaware and he ranked 76th out of of 85 students at Syracuse. So, VP candidate Biden was a poor student and did not attend an Ivy league school.

Obama was not at the top of his class. And, he will not release his school records at Columbia or high school.

I'm sure if Obama was a stellar student at at HS and Columbia he would release those records.
So the presumption is that he was at best a mediocre student. You can take it another step and say he got into Harvard thanks to affirmative action.

What's with the passport obsession? Big deal. She's a governor not a U.S. diplomat.

And she simply pointed out that she has experience dealing with the U.S. military since there is a large military base in Alaska because it borders Russia. All silly stuff.

If you can think of another name for those posting here who are mostly pro-Obama supporters that throw out insults rather than responding to an argument with reason, I'm all ears.

How's hopium addicts? That suits me well,too.

There's nothing else to post here because...oh...all you wrote was a snide remark about Fox news mixed in with sarcasm about my name calling.

That's all you've got?

Earnest, how many times am I going to have to respond to your posts with accurate information?

Here it is again...

Seriously?

Do you really believe the BS you type?

Obama graduated Magna C u m Laude from Harvard. He was also president of the Harvard Law Review.

Interestingly, McCain ranked 894th in his class of 899 at Annopolis.

Obviously his supporters don't find a lot of value in a good education either.

Wow... check back when you pull your head out of the sand.

Passport obsession? Big deal? Would be nice to know the person just a heartbeat away from the presidency has some inkling of the world outside of AK beyond just waving to a foreign country across the border.

Large military base = military experience?
I drive by a large military base on my way to work – in your world, this probably qualifies as “extensive military experience”

I know many book smart people that are naive idiots. I dont pay too much to grade. Yes they are a good indication, however experience and street smart is way more important.

I totally agree with you here--. Unfortunately, I have not seen signs of either experience or street smarts in Palin.
I have, however, seen that she's installed many of her high school cronies in high government positions in AK; she spent $45,000 of the state's money to remodel her office; and she believes that a gas pipeline she wants to have built across Canadian land is "God's will."

You're so right on that street-smart thing. It really worked quite well with the Cheney-Rumsfeld combination. Let's try someone with street-smarts and good judgment for a change. With this choice for VP - McCain has pretty well demonstrated he does not have good judgment.

Spot on! Seville forgot that gangbangers also have "street-smarts"...wo uld he prefer to vote for one of them? Maybe "street-smarts" means doing what you want, regardless of the law, and not getting caught...
