Thanks Angie for that information. :-) Now everything makes perfect sense. No wonder McCain said in his succession speech in AZ that "the blame was his?"

Well...if we last the next four years *sigh*...maybe, Sarah Palin will run as POTUS in 2012? She was asked...of course, and she isn't thinking about 2012. LOL. She is back in her office as Governor of Alaska---this morning. The Alaskans are tough people and would NOT pick a dummy to govern that state. She is one tough cookie and the American people know it. Fear is a powerful thing...folks.

BTW, guys...the IFB men around here do NOT have a problem with a woman as POTUS. God can and will if He has too--- put a woman in charge. Could we possibly have our Judge Deborah?

She is a blood-bought born-again Christian,OB. :amen:

Psalm 25:14...The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant. KJV 1611 AV.

There's no way I'd ever vote for her and I know a lot of other people wouldn't either. Although, I guess that would somewhat depend on whether or not she could figure out what the role of the president is in future interviews better than she knows what the vp's role is. :bonk:

Kevin...you have a rather discolored view of Sarah Palin---for some reason. If you are living in Korea in 2012...you won't even be eligible to vote in the USA...will you? :Bleh

I'll be able to vote. lol
I just think it's pretty clear that Palin was overall very disqualified to be vp, much less the president. To be honest, I'm thinking it was probably a good thing that the GOP lost this presidential election and I'm glad I didn't at any time support either one of them. If Palin runs in 2012, I won't be voting for her. If Romney ran, for example, I would probably vote for him but he would be a fool to choose Palin as a running mate. Anyone in the political realm knows that Palin was detrimental to the campaign, except for some on the Christian right who loved her simply because of her conservative beliefs without regard for her knowledge or capability.

Everyone is entitled to their opinions. I find her to be EXTREMELY intelligent, and so do many men that I know. As far as Romney is concerned? Sure...the Mormons believe in the family and all. Yes...he is an intelligent man. Just how Mormon is that man, though? Do you get what I am talking about?

As far as her being detrimental to the campaign...check the facts, Kevin. It isn't just the Christian right. Half of the RCC voted for McCain because of Sarah Palin. My sister was so disgusted with the state of OH voting for Obama she was ready to pack up her family and move out of here. I know the feeling.

Knowledge and capability? Are you reading the news in the states? I saw the Koreans last night...they were celebrating in the streets. Do you have our facts? Seriously...I am not trying to be mean here.

lol, no, I read Fox News, primarily. Most of what I've seen of Palin have been in interviews I've watched on youtube from various networks. She performed very poorly, in my opinion.

As to Romney, he's an easy guy to like, kind of like Obama. He's just the kind of guy you want to like. They aren't somewhat repulsive like McCain can be at times. I think this will be a good time to (a) allow the GOP to regroup and reform, (B) maybe help some blacks to pull themselves up and make something of themselves knowing that they really can do anything they set their mind to, © give us time to improve international relations and help Americans feel good about being Americans again. In my opinion, the recent years of GOP leadership have caused the American landscape to become somewhat depressing. I don't in any way agree with what Obama promotes, in general, just some thoughts.

Please don't tell me you remember that, John...and have some photographic memory or something?

(BTW, Bill O'Reilly has offered Sarah Palin 30 minutes on his show to say and discuss whatever she wants; he even offered her more than 30 minutes if she wants it. She hasn't yet responded).


Palin lays low as interview requests pile up

ANCHORAGE, Alaska ? Gov. Sarah Palin hadn't been back home in Alaska for a full day and her staff had begun fielding requests Thursday for postelection interviews, including from Barbara Walters, Oprah Winfrey, Larry King and others.

Palin had been expected at her office in Anchorage but later notified her staff that she wouldn't show up after all. She remained at her home in Wasilla, located 40 miles to the north, but was expected in her office on Friday, spokesman Bill McAllister said.

"The intensity of all the interest is amazing. Everyone wants to talk to her," he said.

Palin is coming off a whirlwind nine weeks of almost nonstop travel and campaigning since becoming Republican John McCain's vice presidential running mate in late August. McCain and Palin lost Tuesday's election to Democrats Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

"I think she's been working from home," McAllister said. "Maybe she just liked the idea of spending a whole day at home. It could be the first time she woke up in her own bed and spent the night in her own bed on the same day since late August."

Aides to McCain and Palin, meanwhile, responded to reports of tension between the two sides over the Republican Party's purchase of more than $150,000 worth of clothing for Palin and her family, and accusations that Palin was ill-prepared for her role.

Randy Scheunemann, McCain's foreign policy adviser, called the idea of a split between the two campaigns "laughable."

"It's hard to believe these people worked for John McCain. They obviously have no loyalty to John McCain and no loyalty to his running mate," said Scheunemann, who prepared Palin for the vice presidential debae.

"I've worked in Washington for over 20 years. I have seen literally dozens of politicians, and Sarah Palin is as smart, tough and focused as any politician I've ever seen. I'm proud of the time I was able to spend with her," he said.

Meg Stapleton, a campaign spokeswoman for Palin, said the accusations were unfortunate.

"We have the highest regards for Sen. John McCain," she said in an e-mailed statement. "Gov. Palin was honored to be chosen as McCain's running mate."

Palin returned to Alaska late Wednesday night, her final flight in the McCain-Palin campaign plane. Dozens of supporters greeted her with chants of "2012! 2012!" as she walked off the airplane ? encouragement for her to run for president in four years.

Asked by reporters if she might run, Palin said: "We'll see what happens then."

The governor said she hoped to work with President-elect Obama on energy policy.

She returned home after spending Tuesday night in Phoenix, where she watched election returns with McCain.

Kevin...you actually have a very good outlook on this. Maybe this is the ticket? I actually am getting hope from your post. I didn't think of it that way. :smile

I know you don't agree with Obama---that is a given.

Thanks for the ray of sunshine. God bless you.

If there is a debate Kevin will take the opposite. I have gotten used to that. Biden made the most "racial" comment of all and was never called out after he became deputy-chairman nominee. I refuse to say president cause most socialist countries say chairman hence this is what I will be calling Barry. Look I am just like a dem I attacked Kevin for having a different view. The Ministry of Truth will emerge and we will not be able to dissent. Palin did give Mcain some of the conservative vote. Mcain lost cause of Mcain and the men he picked to aid him in his election race. Mike Reagen, Ronald son, said those same aids were fired by him and his dad for botching stuff on his election. Mike said this a month ago. He knew. Conservatives want a conservative not a phony conservative or a right leaning dem. Palin was hated cause she holds christian values and that is it. This country is godless and pagan. I used to give it the benefit of the doubt but no more. This country will start going after bible believing churches. The Osteens, Rob Bell, Donald Miller, Doug Paggit, Robert Schuller, the RCC and most of the "evangelical" will be fine since they abhor the gospel also. They are friends of the world. The RCC always seems to go with the winner of wars so they will be fine. We will have to go underground. This country has turned their back on God to worship the golden calf. They want to sacrifice their children to the god of self. Back to the topic. Palin will be back I think but will always be treated like this. Any real conservative will be treated like this by our Ivy League lawyer lords.

Thanks for the article, John. :thumb

This will be either an "up" time for the nation or a "down" time. Who knows...except the Lord? Only time will tell.

The highlighted part is the exact way that myself...and many others NOT just Christians feel about her.

It should be clear to all that God's judgement upon America is becoming more pronounced. America has the same choice as anyone else the Lord judges: repent, turn to Him and be reconciled or continue to ignore Him and suffer the consequences.

Tired...you are so funny. And, I know this is frustration. Whew...this has been something else. I feel like the USA has become Disney Land. BTW, I am so glad that you got ALL of that off of your chest. I have done my expounding.

Honestly, I couldn't agree more...but, after this whole political saga I am ready to trade in my screen name "candlelight" for "tired." That is the truth.

We have only seen a sneak peak of Tank---singing praises for his man. LOL. Kindofblue has been hanging low. So...it isn't really that bad. :ooops Did I say all of that? ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Yep, that is the truth. Obviously, a whole lot of people need to suffer more. We just have to hang in there is all. :fall:

I am frustrated with people who claim to be born-again Christians that voted for Obama.

The GOP is purposely trying to get rid of Palin because they do not like her far right views. They are already picking on Jindal as well, because he is a far right possibility for 2012. I was reading Rush Limbaugh on this and he was pointing out that the moderate campaign guys for McCain and even Fox News are trying to destroy Sarah Palin. In general, they want to redefine Republicans to be more of a JFK Democrat, and Democrats to be Socialist like Obama. People like Palin and Jindal want to be more of a Reagan conservative and people don't want that....thus the media and even the moderate GOP are tearing apart Palin...and people like Kevin are listening.

Kevin, you haven't seen anything but YouTube clips making Sarah look dumb, or reading articles talking about stupid things that happened privately during the campaign. That stuff NEVER makes it to news unless you have horribly unloyal people in the campaign that are pointing fingers and trying to shift blame. I bet Obama was TERRIBLE off camera but nobody would ever dare say so. I bet he cusses like a sailor....he gave McCain the finger during a speech, stealthily, if anyone saw that.

If you are glad Palin didn't get the VP, Kevin, then don't complain when Korea gets majorly attacked and Obama smiles as he stands by and watches.

She knows what the role of VP when she talked to some kids. People didn't like her answer, but she was correct because the constitution stated this: "shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no Vote, unless they be evenly divided"

Why are you attacking her, people say that Ron Paul is a raving mad man. Do you agree it is true?

Be nice to Palin, because people are leaving the Republican party because of her. They are seeing that Republican parties what they really are.

I think she was the whole reason that McCain got as many states as he did .I for one was happy to see someone make a stand on things and stop trying to appease everyone .Democrats don't do that ,yet they want Repubilcans to hold hands and get along .
I hope that whoever runs in 2012 and I do have someone in mind allready that they take a tough stand on issues and not cow tow to the Dems .
BO can't make any statments unless they are pre printed on a card

She wasn't correct. She said that she can change and influence policy and use her "power" if she "wants" to. The fact is, she doesn't have that kind of power and it's dangerous to have someone in that high of a position who doesn't understand the restrictions and separation of powers.

Why are you attacking her, people say that Ron Paul is a raving mad man. Do you agree it is true?

I don't care what people say. lol I judge people by what they say and do.

People like Palin and Jindal want to be more of a Reagan conservative and people don't want that....thus the media and even the moderate GOP are tearing apart Palin...and people like Kevin are listening.

Actually, I would say that people DO want that, which is why the GOP did so poorly. People want the Republican party to stand on what it used to stand on, to stand on what propelled them to the majority during the Clinton years. That stand is traditional conservative values and people want the party to move back to their roots. I'm not listening to them, I'm making a judgment based on what she has said. I have a friend who initially got behind the McCain campaign because of Palin but was also eventually turned off by her apparent ignorance.

Kevin, you haven't seen anything but YouTube clips making Sarah look dumb, or reading articles talking about stupid things that happened privately during the campaign. That stuff NEVER makes it to news unless you have horribly unloyal people in the campaign that are pointing fingers and trying to shift blame.

I watched youtube videos of what she said, it doesn't matter what people said about them. How could it not make it to the news when it was a news interview? lol They didn't have to make her look dumb, she did a good enough job at that herself. :frog

I bet Obama was TERRIBLE off camera but nobody would ever dare say so. I bet he cusses like a sailor....he gave McCain the finger during a speech, stealthily, if anyone saw that.

Oh come on.....how on earth could you possibly go for that. You're talking about me believing the media even though it came out of Palin's mouth and yet you're believing internet rumors that Obama wiping his mouth with his middle finger is flipping off McCain. I use my middle finger to wipe my mouth, too. :bonk:

I also don't think that it's right to insinuate that the media is always out to attack McCain when they also gave Obama's church ties a lot of scrutiny, which led to him disassociating with him.

If you are glad Palin didn't get the VP, Kevin, then don't complain when Korea gets majorly attacked and Obama smiles as he stands by and watches.

Oh brother. I'm so tired of the Obama conspiracies. Obama is not the antichrist and anyone who doesn't despise him and believe that he is inhabited by the devil is not a non-Christian. :loco

Obama wants to do more than just dangerous, he wants to do things that is unconstitutional. Like our gun rights. I am sure he will be happily to pass a bill on fairness doctrine that is against our constitutional rights of free press and speech.
