McCain's VIP Selection....Laughed at by the Media

It starts, here.

Sad to see you there Jim:(

The liberal socialist media won’t be laughing in November!

Isn’t this the wrong section for this. Some people have a hard time controlling their vulgarness.

Ha! That’s laughable Jim.

“Where’s that?” “Very many news rooms” ROTFLMAO :smiley: .

Good sign that the liberal media thinks she’s a joke. I smell a sucker punch coming.

I smelled one when McCain congratulated Obama on his nomination acceptance speech and told him “tomorrow we’ll be back at it again”, then proceeded to kick him in the crotch the next morning announcing Palin as his VP. McCain is three moves ahead of Obama. Brilliant!

This is the difference that experience makes. When you got it, you got it. Too late for Obama to get any for this run at it. :wink:

It’s all over but the crying - which y’all are just dandy at.

McCain Defends Sarah Palin as Some Alaskans Question His Choice
Source: Bloomberg

. . .Still, some Alaskans – including a supporter of Palin’s 2006 run for governor and a former staff member – expressed reservations about the choice.

``She’s not qualified, she doesn’t have the judgment, to be next in line to the president of the United States,’’ Larry Persily, who until June worked in the governor’s Washington office as a congressional liaison, said in a phone interview yesterday.

A supporter of Palin’s campaign for governor, Jim Whitaker, the Republican mayor of Fairbanks, also questioned Palin’s readiness to serve as vice president in a phone interview yesterday.

Whitaker said that while he is ``still an avid supporter’’ of Palin as governor, he will continue to back Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.

She’s a whole lot more qualified to be president than Obama is. At least she’s got executive experience. Obama’s got two years as a freshman senator. With an office manager running his senate office staff of about 6 people. Lot’s of experience ‘executive’ experience there. :roll: Obama’s barely qualified to be a dog catcher, and I’m not sure I would vote for him for that office either.

Ultimately in this election you will judged by your results, everything else is an opinion. There will only be one elected candidate come November who will go on to be inaugurated in January. I guess we will see just who the American public will choose.

We sure will and whoever that person is, I will stand up and support them.

I guess she does have more experience than I thought.

Cindy McCain on ABC Today: Palin Has National Security Experience Because Alaska Is Close To Russia

When a Fox News morning host, Steve Doocy, testified to Sarah Palin’s national security experience on Friday by saying that her state, Alaska, was so close to Russia, it drew hoots across the media and blogosphere (and even, no doubt, from a few Fox viewers).
This morning, on ABC in an interview with George Stephanopoulos, Cindy McCain endorsed this very view.

Asked about Palin’s national security experience, Cindy McCain could not come up with anything beyond the fact that, after all, her state is right next to Russia. “You know, the experience that she comes from is, what she has done in government – **and remember that Alaska is the closest part of our continent to Russia.” :slight_smile: :shock: **

Earlier in the interview, she said that Palin was “heavily experienced” in general, citing her going from the PTA to mayor to governor – and having a son headed for Iraq. **She actually said that she started her political career at the PTA “like everybody else.” :roll: **

Need I say more.

But this actually isn’t as appalling as a phone interview Palin herself gave yesterday to reporter back home, at the Anchorage Daily News.

The reporter, Kyle Hopkins, asked, according to the transcript posted today,

“Are you ready to be President Palin if necessary?”

“I am … I am up to the task, of course, of focusing on the challenges that face America,” she answered, and that was all she could say on her behalf on this question. Then she abruptly shifted to how her candidacy would help Alaska. "And I am very pleased with the situation that I am in, when, when you consider the situation now that Alaska will be in.

"And that is Alaska, and Alaskans will be allowed to contribute more to our great country and they’ll be allowed to do that because I – if we’re elected – will be in a position of opening the eyes of the country to what it is that Alaska is all about and what Alaska has to offer.

So, I am happy to and very honored to be asked to do this. I know it’s going to be great for Alaska."

Who said the woman was against earmarks? Actually, it seems like she sees *herself *as an Alaska earmark.

Only this:

Please list for us Obama’s experience so we can compare.
It really is the only fair thing to do.
He does want to be president you know.:roll:

We’re all waiting Chris.:smiley:

Ahhh, the question they keep ducking. But it doesn’t stop the old pot calling the kettle black shenanigan, or should I say the Obamamite calling Palin unqualified to be president.:roll:

Please list this “executive” leadership you are so hung up on for the following presidents:

John F. Kennedy
Harry Truman
Lyndon Johnson
Richard Nixon
Abraham Lincoln

Then explain how your “executive” experience requirement has enhanced the effectiveness of the following presidents:

Jimmy Carter
George W. Bush
Warren G. Harding

Who’s ducking?:roll:

It’s you fellas that claim Palin is unqualified for VP whole trying to pretend Obama has no problems on this issue and for a higher office.

See post above.:roll:

Hey I’m fine with discussing real issues.

Where shall we start.:smiley:

Back the train up! It is your side attacking Palin’s qualifications to be the President while ignoring Obama’s terribly lacking resume. It is quite sad when a 2 year Governor of Alaska running as VP has a superior resume to that of the DNC Presidential candidate. Why doesn’t it surprise me that the DNC is now throwing stones from a glass house?

I’ve been attacking Palin’s qualifications? That’s news to me. :shock:

Not you Nick;-)

James Carville(Clinton Super Hack) has now joined the chorus.

When asked what he thought of McCain pick of Palin he said is was a strange pick and that she had no experience.

Of course he failed to mention Obama’s lack of experience and the CNN reported didn’t ask a follow-up question.


They also asked Carville his reaction to a poll that found 75% said McCain picked Palin to help win the election. Well Duh?

At the commercial break CNN claims that they equal politics.

That every American is an independent thinker

That they have no affiliation

They give only the facts

There was something about brainwashing too but I might have misunderstood that.:wink:
