    This is not about who should win the election or even who is better for the country:

    Would Sarah Palin as President be any worse that what we have had for the last eight years?

    Because to me she sounds somewhat more intelligent than the guy we are putting out to pasture. I just cannot imagine her doing any worse than he has (granted that she isn't going to do much better either!)

    We must be hearing different things, because to me, Palin sounds JUST as UN-intelligent as GWB.

    Dubya had more charm and expertise when dealing with the press. He was lovable enough to excuse his ignorance. Many people seem to think that his stumbling with words, nonsense logic, and deer-in-headlights look were cute. He got off easy.

    Palin is more aggressive and determined to not look like an idiot. She overcompensates, and the media eats it up. She's not as lovable as W, so the media doesn't let her get away with her ignorance.

    You took those words right out of my mouth. Charming? When? Where? Let me know.:biggrin1:

    Having said that. Bush needs Palin to be President so we won't be the dumbest President in American history! As bad as Bush is, Palin is worse. Palin doesn't have a clue about foreign affairs. She can't grasp the complexity of foreign affairs issues. She won't be able to comprehend what her advisers tell her. Her only hope would be to tell the foreign affairs people to "handle it."

    Some one will have to write her speeches. She can't do a news conference since she won't know the answers to the questions.

    God help us all if she gets in.

    Could Palin be a worse president than GWB?

    I dunno man, he lowered the bar so much it would be hard for anyone to be truly as awful, I think she would give it a damn good go however.

    My first impression of Palin is that she seems like a female version of the President.

    However, I disagree about Bush's intelligence. Even though his education may not have rubbed off in a way most would like, George W. Bush is the smartest mofo on earth, and I'll continue to believe that until I see him, and others, on trial.

    I never thought I would say this but yes. One of her worst qualities, however well it plays to the masses, is her misplaced sense of confidence. Her overly developed faith in her own ability and judgement, bordering on arrogance, leads me to believe that she would turn a deaf ear to those of broader experience and wiser council. Her past history shows she has cleaned house of anyone and everyone who didn't agree with her, surrounded herself with toadies who simply agree with her limited vision...oh, god, I'm starting to answer this seriously. In a word, yep. In two, god forbid.

    I think you would not be confused on her convictions. She would act decisively, and with confidence. She does offer somewhat of an appeal (almost Reaganesque) which makes people prideful of the USA - which i haven't seen in 20 years from a pres/candidate.

    Her advisors would keep her from fucking up too badly. I wouldn't be comfortable with her in meetings with international leaders - particularly in times of conflict. Press conferences would probably be a nightmare as well. The press corps would flipping crucify her.

    I just hope after the election we get to see her MILF ass naked. She is a huge tease and must be creaming her panties at all of this attention...

    But would she decisively and with confidence make the right decision? And the Bush quote of "I'm the decider" is just ringing in my head.

    Are you proud of the US because of her? Why is that (if you checked Yes for the last question)?

    That I can't answer.

    I'm proud of the US because of the US. She just reminds me of how lucky we are.

    I don't think it fair to compare anyone given the fact that we are heading into 2009 far worse off than we were 2001. The next four years are going to be rougher in my opinion than 2001 thru 2004 and if America suffers another 9/11/2k1, it'll easily be worse ? I think McCain or Palin does about what we see with "W" had either become President in 2001. The Republicans were heading down this road in 2001 regardless of who they put in front of us. There are some things, even Bush wasn't responsible for. Deregulation was conducive, but it still takes the rest of America to actually carry out what we endured over the last 8 years.

    What he said^

    W's biggest mistake seems to have been discarding advisors who failed to show loyalty by serving as "yes men." I suspect Palin would be prone to similar mis-steps.

    Are you saying that Bush had a clue about foreign affairs? I never saw it.

    First off, the words President and Palin should never again be mentioned in proximity.

    #2, with any hope, she will fade back into the Alaskan wilderness in 3 weeks time, never to be heard from again.

    Definitely, I'm with you on "1st off", as for # 2, there's no kind way to put abusing the position as she did in "Troopergate", but somehow that was done in yet another report of fact finding by an oversight review. The lengths she and her husband went to fire the ex-husband of Palin's sister is criminal. In America everyone has a right to support themselves in a job and to be the target of being fired because a marriage simply doesn't work out by people abusing their authority is unacceptable. While I still don't know everything that went on, because the trooper may have abused his own position and perpetrated both calculated and heinous behavior upon Palin's sister, that is unacceptable, but divorces get ugly sometimes. What needs to happen is that the bottom of that needs to be really satisfied and justice administered to all involved. That includes all of them from the Todd-ster, Sarah Palin, and the ex-husband. We already can see the handwriting on the wall that the guy that actually lost his original position is going to be compensated for what he endured thru the loss of gainful employment in the position he held. So what is in store for Sarah Palin for all of this ? In my opinion, if Jim Traficant can spend time in prison for what he's ever done as a former House of Representative congressional member, Sarah Palin needs to atone to society for her errors in judgement as Governor of Alaska ? Sarah Palin took on corruption in her own party, and in the end her own corruption is what should be her own undoing. Just my personal read on Sarah Palin, to describe her, she is a true hand shaking, baby kissing politician. She has a smile that lures you in and once the bait has been taken, the rest of her is a rusty bear trap, that the unsuspecting gets caught in. I don't find her as intriguing as the rest of the public has in the past few weeks since being announced by the Republican party as their VP candidate. I don't trust her based upon her track record even though she turned on the criminally guilty of her own party. It's a mixed can of worms when loyalties are betrayed, but I think she used the same charms we see to get what appointments to positions in Alaska that she had. She found the dirt on the people that entrusted her and she turned on them for political career and financial gain. Alaska, the oil industry, the Palins, it would make a pretty good tv mini-series to say the least. And if were to go on for years, it might even morph into something from "The Big Valley" or "Ponderosa" to "Dallas", "Flamingo Road" or "Knots Landing" or any other similar tv drama series ? If "Northern Exposure" could run as many seasons as it did, the Palins saga could go on that long as well, even become syndicated ?

    The only difference, I see, between Bush and Palin is lipstick and a pair of high heals.

    That's six thousand years, and such a position was held by people like Isaac Newton so it's not exactly an insult.

    However Sarah Palin is a great disappointment from what I've heard about her. She was sold as a Republican Hillary Clinton, but seems more like a female version of George w. Bush. A Bush without a bush, if you follow my meaning (and hoping she waxes).

    Right you are. As Chris Rock puts it: "George Bush fucked up so bad, he made it possible for a black man to be elected President of the United States." That's saying something. If Palin were ever in that post, god forbid, who might she make possible for to follow her?

    I think she is just too dumb to screw up as bad as Bush. He is not only dumb but has a sneaky evilness that purposely screwed up everything--I do see evilness in her too but not to the degree of Bush. She would basiclly do nothing at all--- she would keep us in Iraq forever and do nothing for health care or anything to help FIX problems--so thats pretty bad to I guess. We should just keep the pig with lipstick out of there.

    Its the land of opportunity, right? A female from a small Alaskan town a few short years ago, and now thrust into the international spotlight as a VP candidate...she is positive about the country in her remarks, and has a tremendous amount of energy and ambition. She doesn't look as if she's ready to fall asleep when she's talking (McCain, Biden) and she laughs with spoofs like Tina Fey.

    In short, she doesn't remind me of a politician when she talks, she reminds me of an American.
