Re: Vice Presidential Debate Thread

Yeah, Palin's take was almost insulting to the intelligence of republicans, in my opinion. I say this because if they think that throwing out some nonsense about being a maverick and bringing small town values to washington is all it takes to sway opinion in their favor, well, they must think we're fucking idiots.

Is it so much to ask for a candidate that has republican principles at heart to also be an intelligent speaker. Palin could be a Rhodes Scholar, Mensa member and Nobel Laureate for all I know, but she sure didn't sound like anything but a soccer mom last night. Winking at the camera? Are you kidding? Biden threw out some garbage last night that, had she been on her game, she could have brought up. But for the average, uninformed person who is getting their info solely or mostly from the debate, they have a very distorted view of these two candidates.

She was awful. She can spit out talking points, but she can't answer a question. Awful, awful performance IMO.

Thats nothing big if you look back over the years Mich has voted dem for a very long time. It was a small hope to win Mich and when they see its lost they move their money to another state. Both parties do this in every election.

Re: Vice Presidential Debate Thread

i disagree. if that were issue, why was McCain still stumping in Iowa? wasting money, that's about it. his campaign handlers have been all over the place( in regards to strategy)

Re: Vice Presidential Debate Thread

Not sure what station I was on after the debat because I like to flip around and see the different slant on what people think. One guy had pulled Obama's voting record and showed that Biden flat out lied on 10 different times about Obama's voting record. Many of which Biden told the public and Sarah that she was just plain wrong. I also think if I was prepairing Sarah I would have brought up more stuff that Biden had said about Obama when they where running against each other. It was Biden who said I would vot for McCain before I would ever think about Voting for an inexperienced Obama.

Biden has 30 years of experience to Palin and he sould have been able to put her away but could not.

I think you're glossing over the importance of this just a bit. The Dems did win Michigan last time but it wasn't by much, and early on polls were favorable to McCain there.

Harsh? If there is a possibility that she will be vice president, this sort of criticism is far from harsh. A person in that position should be an excellent public speaker. Look at our current President. His lack of articulation (along with other things) has made him a laughing stock. I'm not laughing though, I'm embarrassed.

It's not even about being a good public speaker, I actually think she can handle that, it's when she's not speaking from a script where she's exposed for what she is, a fraud. She just winks and tosses out some corny one-liners and life is supposed to be good.

Just what I want, a potential VP winking at the nation. I was waiting for a stripper poll to pop up from the floor.

Mich is a middle of the rode sate but has voted democratic in the last 4 elections.

Well atleast she is not lying like Biden did 10 different time last night about Obama's voting record.

She wasn't exactly 100% factual herself.
