    I'm tired of this "Palin is inexperienced" bullshit. She has more executive experience than Obama.
    I don't wanna!

    I think me and a lot of other people think she makes a better presidential candidate than John McCain.

    Sarah should be the presidential candidate, and McCain should be vice president. Then I could consider voting for them. But with McCain as the lead dog, sorry no can do.
    Ermm... I don't agree with most of her policty stances, and she actually has less experience than Obama. She's also demonstrated remarkable ignorace of politics. I don't think the presidency is the place for her.

    For years I have been an advocate of returning Theodore Roosevelt to the presidency! America needs you now more than ever Teddy!

    That being the case, you might as well have a president who's nice to look at.
    You're exagerating the hopelesness of the situation.

    Fascism isn't inevitable. TR wasn't a fascist, although his "National Greatness" and imperial tendencies were troubling to say the least. And, of course, the FDR administration is the closest the United States ever came to fascistic economic organization, with huge (often unconstitutional) government bureaucracies administering "managed capitalism." They also shifted into a war economy in the run-up to and during WWII. This is pretty much the textbook example of state corporatism.

    Oh, yes, executive experience. This is the part where someone claims that because the presidency is in the executive branch, governors are more qualified for it. Well, you're wrong.

    The presidency is a pretty unique job in this country. It demands things of a person that no previous position can really simulate. The variety of responsibilities that the president has is one of the reasons for this. For instance, being a governor in this country gives you virtually no foreign policy experience. A senator is more likely to have that, especially a senator on the foreign relations commitee.

    Let's also note that the state you run makes a difference. Alaska is so barren that the whole mass of it has only one federal representative. Being the governor there for two years doesn't amount to much of anything.

    Since McCain has mostly based the question of experience on foreign policy, it makes Palin look useless. If experience is an issue, then a four year senator is better than a two year governor of Alaska.

    Experience ad absurdum = Strom Thurmond, President of the United States 1993-2001.

    Policy matters a lot more than does the date you showed up in Washington.

    I don't agree with a lot of her stances on social issues, but I like most (not all) of her economic views. I'm sure she's a very intelligent woman. I wouldn't classify her as a moron just because she disagrees with you on issues like abortion.
