    I would truely rather see McCain in the white house than Obama.. I think that Obama would do so much more bad than good to this country.

    just listen to her latest interview as one example on CBS with Katie Curtin (sp)

    Thats why all week McCain staff was protecting her from the press when she met those other countries representatives.

    Shes not qualified from what I've seen over the past 4 weeks.
    She does seem remarkably inexperienced and like she really hasn't thought through her positions very well. More image than substance, definitely. Republicans will say, "But Obama is the same way!" Well, that doesn't justify our acting the same way.

    McCain, I believe he's too old, he moves, respond and reacts very slowly, if you watch all his press conferences and campaigns he's reading from a teleprompter also, and he can barely say 3 words before looking back at the teleprompter again.
    The President doesn't have to move like a cheetah chasing dinner. I'd rather he carefully consider his answers than just blurt out something (which he occasionally does anyway). GWB often has a quick response, but he just screws things up.

    Have you ever been in front of multiple cameras with intense studio lights and a disembodied voice asking you questions? The situation automatically removes 20 IQ points. Some people get better at this, and some don't. The rest of us have the luxury of sitting back and collecting our thoughts before stating our positions on defined issues, but a presidential candidate can't; commentators will pick apart any slight hesitation or make nuanced ideas sound like the candidate is splitting hairs. They have to be able to spew their answer out when prompted, and often that means looking at the teleprompter to avoid getting tangled up in their own words.

    Also, keep in mind that they're doing this while running for President - which means they may quite possibly be running on 5 hours (or less) of sleep, have a cold, and not exactly be in top form.

    I am not a one issue voter or a strict party line voter. I discuss 2A issues here simply because of the type of site it is. While the McCain/ Palin ticket may not be the absolute perfect ticket, the Obama/ Biden ticket falls shorter in its political views. I also don't trust a candidate that flip-flops in their views as Obama does with gun rights. As for Palin, she may not be a great public speaker but neither is Bush. When it comes to experience, as governor of Alaska, I believe she has more experience with the military than Obama. She also wants to open up drilling as a short term cure for the oil crunch and to get us off dependence on Arab oil. She is pro-life and supports strong education. Many fear that McCain will just be another 4 years of Bush policy. I don't really believe this. I think he's smart enough to know that he won't make a second term if he continues that path. One last thing, I would rather have the least experienced in the training position than the lead position. Want to know Palin's views and how she voted as Governor? Check out the following:

    And some would say that Joe Paterno is to old to coach, maybe but still doing it and is doing a heck of a great job. some say Brett Farve should have stayed in retirement but is still better than most quarterbacks in NFL. Palin to young, McCain to old I don't think so. I'm not voting for Biden or Palin I'm voting for the President's job first VP second, Joe Bidens record well speaks for it self. I do not always vote for a certain party just who I think will do the best job, and like some not always right but at least I vote.

    Joe Bidens record well speaks for it self.

    That is exactly what I have said many times. Experience means little if the experience is one of being consistently wrong on everything.

    I agree that at this point in time, Palin is not president material, but possibly will be after two terms as vice president. However, I don't think Obama/Biden is any more qualified, either. On issues that are dear to me (ie., gun rights, abortion, taxes, national defense, and honesty) there really are no good choices among the two major parties.

    Leaving Mass, Posts like yours are the reason this forum is so lame most of the time. Your comments are rude and uninformed. Also, try spell check.

  11. One issue voter1. abortion 2. guns 3. small gov 4. drill drill drill 5. kick ass and take names 6. close or boarders. Yes we are1 issue people.We are not socialist or communist.I don't believe giving the money to the guys that screwed it up can fix it.
