    Sarah said yesterday that we won't be bailing these last two loser out. It won't be costing the American Taxpayers this time.

    I thought she said we SHOULDN'T.

    Kinda hard for her to declare what would and would not be done a she doesn't (currently) hold national executive office.

    Maybe you're just a rube who can't/won't read for comprehension.

    And bailing out business failures encourages more failure. Never teach people they can pass-off their wasted money onto their neighbors.

    Economic giant, huh!

    Just among the many "fibs" to promote Palin...

    John McCain, fibbing his way through an introduction of Palin in Cedarsburg, Wisconsin, ..."You know what i enjoyed the most? She took the luxury jet that was acquired by her predecessor and sold it on eBay -- made a profit."


    No profit was made. The $2.7 million aircraft, a Westwind II, was offer at a minimum bid of $2.5 million. The minimum bid was never met. It was pulled off E-bay and placed with Turbo North Aviation, an aircraft broker. who sold it to wealthy businessman Larry Reynolds for $2.1 million. Turbo's fee coming from the proceeds of the sale was $31k. When it sold, the state of Alaska still owed $2,516,386.06 on the aircraft. Profit? You do the math!

    Palin's plan was to buy a replacement aircraft that would be more suitable for Alaska's rugged terrain (probably one with a turret for shooting moose)... not to rid the state of unnecessary luxuries.

    McCain... why would you tell such a blatantly silly lie? To promote Palin, of course, your one and only drawing card.

    oh good grief.

    At the end of the day the voter sees the plane was actually sold thus cutting a ridiculous luxury.

    What has L'il 'O done?

    I'm sorry but I fail to understand the implication here ray? Are you saying that Palin was somehow being dishonest by stating a fact yesterday about Lehman Brothers?

    Mac wasn't lying, he was just revealing how exceptionally bad he is at understanding anything that has to do with addition, subtraction, or economics.

    is there a point here somewhere? the last I heard we're not bailing them out, nor should we. seems like another example of PDS to me.
