Yeah, this doesnt mean much to me. Her stunning ignorance and pathological lying are more serious issues
She has the power to fire anyone she wants when that person is hired AT WILL. That type of hiring is applicable to just about every job in America.
Your boss can fire you if he doesn't like you. Or if his or her spouse bitched at them that morning before they left for work and now they're in a bad mood. Or if he wants to give his best friend your job. IT DOESN'T MATTER.
She probably was doing the guy a favor so his resume wouldn't look like he was fired for defending a guy who tasered a kid. Here's her reward for being kind hearted.
Who she hires and fires is her private business only if she does it on her time and money.
If she uses the money and power given to her by the American taxpayer to pursue petty little private feuds it becomes an issue.
Not much of an issue, though. Unless you are a rabid Palin-hater - then she should be impeached.
I do not know what is much of an issue in this campaign.
Somehow I would have thought that two wars that have cost around 1 trillion and an economy that continues to decline after the biggest attempt to stabilize the market in history failed would be an issue.
Or the patriot act, or Guantanamo, or people dying at the hands of the TSA without making traveling safer or the militarization of the police or anything that really matters.
Seen that way, nothing Palin said or did matters, she is not qualified.
I would be nice if people refused to discuss the color of their blindfold for once and questioned the need to blindfold them.
I don't know why the argument should be about Palin in the first place.
But it is.
Obama is woefully unqualified and he would be the one running the show. Why is the uproar over Palin, and not Che-Bama?
War spending pales in comparison to social spending. The war is not as controversial as those looking in from the outside want it to be, especially when compared to the amount of money that has either already been spent, or is proposed to be spent on the credit crunch. Financial "crisis" spending exceeded the entire cost of the war in less than a month.
I don't know that Europe is any better with their economies. The Euro is in a free fall, and banks are closing over there at a rate equal to if not greater than the US.
The rest of your post may be true. There are some arguments for it. But finanical 'crisis' spending between these parties is a wash. Considering both tickets supported it.
I wasn't comparing parties. Orion mentioned that the cost of the war should be more of a concern for voters. I was trying to show that war spending has been dwarfed by this bail out bullshit in less than a month.
Yes, both parties are horribly guilty of both war spending and the bailout.
