I don't get why people are I don't know what the word is. I don't know why they're doing it to her. It just is being taken out of context. If I remember the word I'll get back here and post it.

Mocking, that's the word.

That made my stomach hurt...not from laughing, but from cringing.

You know, Biden is a gaff machine and there are a lot of him, but he has done 89 interviews and meetings to be able to draw from; she does 3.5 and is batting a thousand so far in looking like she is absolutely unprepared to do anything close to being a VP. I dont even think she is qualified to be an assistant to the VP, let alone the VP.

I can see why they have the media blackout on her; she is unprepared, but the ONLY thing that the entire campaign has going for it. They had nothing until they had her, so they have to keep her from speaking up and destroying any benefit she brought to the team...

I cannot fathom what would happen if that woman had to sit across from an actual world leader and negotiate something important. If it had been Putin asking questions instead of katie Couric I think she would have folded faster than superman on laundry day...

It is really scary to see what our country has presented to us for candidates, and what our citizens think is acceptable...



Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

Biden's gaffes are entertaining, but this is just painful to watch.

If McCain wins and something happens to him, we'll have the least qualified and most unprepared president.

That's a good point fluffy.

Bush has about a 89% gaff rate.
Biden has about a 75% gaff rate.
McCain and Obama are at 25%.
Palin  is at 100%.  grin2.gif

I also have a soft spot for "Sarah Quaylin."

But, yeah, sobering stuff.

She was on national T.V. -- give her a break. Being good on T.V. has no bearing on your ability to run a nation.

I disagree.

As a VP or possibly President she is going to be on national and world TV all the time. She will be the representative for this country. If she cant express herself well and gets flustered on TV, then she is going to have a serious problem.

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

Yeah.. who needs to know how to present themselves on national TV so they look like they live one block from an iota of a clue.   Just ask Bush, Biden, and McCain..

O..wai...
