    that's not how it was and you know it. He was introduced onto the national scene in 2004. He's been under a mircoscope for 19 months by the media and the cons looking for anything to discredit him.

    PLEASE stop pretending these two people are remotely similar in that regard. Sarah Palin was introduced to us two weeks ago and in less than two months she could be the VP of this country, second in command and in line to the PResidency should McCain keel over.

    How that doesn't scare the shit out of EVERYONE is beyond me.

    I will say this though, I don't put much stock in a magazine who runs polls of "who wore it better" when it comes to deciding who would or wouldn't make a good VP.

    and I'd say they both were launched into superman(person) status on the merits of a speech... are you denying that Sarah Palin's speech isn't what people are judging her abilities on right now cuz it sure as hell isn't based on anything sher revealed on her beliefs and how she'll handle being VP.

    Don't you remember, right after his election to the Senate, people were asking if he was going to run for President?

    Maybe YOU were introduced to Palin two weeks ago, but some have followed her for months. It was a grassroots campaign that put her into the VP slot, with sites like draftpalin.com and other efforts to put her into McCain's campaign.

    Obama was amazing as a state legislature. He came on the national scene and seemed to GET IT almost immediately. Heck, he was against invading Iraq from the very beginning. Then he gave his speech at the 2004 Democratic convention and he amazed everyone. Then he got experience as a Junion senator passing reform bills and seeing how broken Washington was while the GOP ran all three branches. So he has been around long enough.

    Sarah Palin just showed up. Every day the facts show she is just as dirty and bad as McCain, and we all know McCain is just as bad as the GOP, but here they are running against Republicans and Democratics.

    Brilliant!!!:clap2: Karl Rove, you have outdone yourself. I am amazed.

    Fuck the American middle class if Obama doesn't win. Fuck me caring about politics anymore. If the American poor want the GOP running things, let em have them. I'll be ok either way.

    I'll suffer because wages will go down, gas will go up, cost of evething else will go up, debt will go up, inflation will rise, death tolls in Iraq will go up,


    And we won't be any safer.

    Abortion will become illegal. Think of all those girls who will be forced to have all those kids. I guess the GOP likes that though, because then they'll recruit them in the militiary.

    Poverty will go up, bank closings will increase, Fanny Mae & Freddy Mac, just like now, the profits will be privatized and the losses YOU will pay for.

    I'm fed up. I'm going to let the Corporate Media win.

    Fine, talk for a fucking month about Michelle Obama being proud of America but don't mention Palin's ties to the Alaska Independence Party.

    and yes I realize that people started asking him to run for president right after he joined the Senate but that doesn't negate the FACT that he's been fully scrutinized by the media for 19 months and the cons have been attempting to discredit him for just as long.



    me and 95% of the country js.... grassroots? you f'ing kidding me? GMAB if you knew anything about her prior to her being announced as VP running mate you should've been scared shitless that he'd pick her given what has come out in the last two weeks.

    I don't, as a habit, surf right wing websites so that might be how I missed all the buzz....apparently so did the media cuz they were like WHO? too... and do you think they wouldn't have been investigating her well before the announcement if they had even an tiny clue?

    No, he gave a great speech and people were rightly impressed with his speaking skills, a skill which is often in the reptoire of a good leader. Then he followed it up with more speeches and a very well run campaign that knocked a Clinton out of the running.

    That is acheivement. You guys are so pissed that Mumbles McCain is crappy on the podium that you first make speaking a fault, but now that Palin is here, suddenly speaking is important again.

    What a crock.
