    You could be the mayor of a tiny town in Iowa who'd never made a serious decision in your life. You could be a raging alcoholic and a moron. But if you've held office for 32 years, you'd have more "experience" than Obama.

    "Experience" without brains is absolutely worthless. My 17 year old dog has "experience" but I definitely would not want him to run the US. He is old and cranky. Doesn't see too good, can't hear much.

    So why do people buy the GOP line about McCain & Palin having "experience?" Is it just because they like to get all fuzzy eyed and faint about any republican candidate whatsoever, even if they are brain-dead or brainless?

    Does anybody buy that "experience" crap?

    I'll take McCain's brains over Obama any day of the week. But since everyone seems to want to compare Obama ans PALIN, I would take Palin's brains over all of the candidates.

    You're talking about the current incumbent, right? :biggrin1:

    Only those who believe in the "Weapons of Mass Distraction" as opposed to talking about the specifics of how we will get our jobs back, how we will be able to stay in our homes, how we will be able to afford a quart of milk, how we will pay for a gallon of gas, how we will pay for all the corporate bailouts while the CEO's continue to get millions (corporate socialism), and how come we still do not have bin Laden 7 years after "Mission Accomplished!"

    As long as they keep distracting everyone from the main issues *and* as long as Obama continues to feed into it instead of simply ignoring it and hitting home, over and over, that the only good economy is a Democrat in office economy, there will be idiots that can only think of culture and their high holy hypocritical morals.

    Obama keeps saying that he doesn't think the American people are stupid yet it is the American people who are responsible for the last 4 years (the first 4 was not by a true election).

    I think Obama knows he is in trouble. Up to this point seniors have not been in his demographic but he is now reaching out to them:

    While watching the Sarah Palin interview with Charlie Gibson Thursday night, and the coverage of the Palin phenomenon in general, I’ve gotten the scary feeling, for the first time in my life, that dimwittedness is not just on the march in the U.S., but that it might actually prevail.

    How is it that this woman could have been selected to be the vice presidential candidate on a major party ticket? How is it that so much of the mainstream media has dropped all pretense of seriousness to hop aboard the bandwagon and go along for the giddy ride?
