Wouldn't Sarah Palin Be Better?

I look at all the evil creatures treating the cess pool of Washington as if it were a hot tub (Sarah’s words) and I think: “People prefer these low animals to Sarah Palin? People would really vote for people like Romney and Obama over her? Why?”

Pundits say that she is dumb. I disagree with that but let’s say that she is average: isn’t that better than brilliant and evil? She’s still preferable.

I think she’s way above average as all of her emails and administration showed.

People say she’s a quitter. Why? Lawyers were making it impossible for her to govern! (The laws in Alaska have since been changed.)

She is way better than any of these vile people we have now in charge or running. Time to drain the swamp and put her in charge.

I think that part of the problem for her is that despite the inroads that women have made in politics when it comes to the top job of President, Americans have a bias in favor of men. Even amongst men there are certain characteristics they prefer. For example the average height of an American President is 5’11". Americans just don’t see a shorty as Presidential.

I don’t think she would be bad, but I just don’t get a Presidential vibe from her.

Obama doesn’t act presidential at all, in my view (pun intended): he appears on the View, did that stupid Rap thing, sings to an audience. To me a prez should be serious, not some joking clown.

I simply can’t imagine her making those dirty deals like Obama did. I think she’s light years ahead of clown Bush.

To me a prez should be serious, not some joking clown.

So you would prefer another “DICK IN THE BUSH?”

Interesting…

Listen closely…“gulp…gulp…gulp.” That’s you swallowing the media bias regarding President Bush.

And as long as we’re on the topic what was the unemployment rate when Bush left office. Do you know? Have you heard that from your media guru’s? No? Do you know why? Because when Bush left office the unemployment rate was 5.8%, not great but far, far better than mister socialism’s 8.2%. Did you know that Obama has reigned over the longest sustained unemployment over 8% in the history of the country?

Yeah, I’d take Palin in a heart beat over Obama…Not even close!

And, I’m no fan of Palin.

Run along now you don’t want to miss Chris Matthews telling you how great Obama is.

chris matthews is as much a clown as Palin !

Sure I own the fact that the guy I voted for has to deal with an 8% unemployment rate.

Why can you people on the other side of the isle not own the fact that it was Bushes

dismantleling of the safety nets in place that caused this shit in the first place ?

I would still love, for the record, a BACHMAN-PALIN ticket in 2012. Just to see how many

retards would actually vote that way ; )

Not sure what the point of this thread was for, we already had one titled “PWI Humor” for these types of posts.

Or was it Barny Frank’s fault? Do your homework.


This Palin would probably be a better canditate, to bad this Palin isnt a natural us citizen.

( this is the PWI humor thread right? )

I’d just like to clarify the employment rate was about 8 percent when Bush left office not 5.8%. You can confirm with the Bureau of Labor statistics if you want. It was on an upward trend the last year of Bush’s presidency. Mainly the last 3-6 months. 5.8% is probably just the average unemployment was during his presidency. A lot of the media likes using the average statistic to try and point out how bad it’s gotten. I’ve even seen it on “biased liberal mainstream news”.

As for your comment about the media they all tip left with the exception of FOX which leans right. If Obama had actually brought down the unemployment rate instead of allowing it to higher than it was when Bush was President we would be hearing about it every day. Chris Matthews would be getting a chill up his leg and clamoring for one more lick at Obama’s bung hole. Followed by the other media lap dogs far too numerous to mention for the sake of this post.

I’m right though. I saw it on MSNBC or CNN. They mentioned the unemployment rate being 5% when Bush was in office and talked about how bad it had gotten. I think the media in general will go for shock and awe over political leaning every time.

Also, I never said the unemployment rate went below when Bush left office. I just said it was about 8% when he left.

Here’s a link.

It was 7.8% in January of 2009 and you can see it trending upward through 2008. 5.8% is inaccurate even if you wanted to use Dec 2008’s number. Who even told you it was 5.8%?

The point of the thread is that a moral person is far superior to anyone else in the job as president.

Sarah didn’t go to Harvard Law. Now, who would you ultimately trust when trust was the most important thing?

If anyone said one of the sleaze balls now running (except for Ron Paul), then they better bring a big supply of K-Y Jelly.

That’s the kind of talk that will reelect Obama. Mitt Romney is a good and moral man. He’s been happily married to the same woman for 43 years. He raised a great bunch of kids, has a law and business degree from Harvard. Was a success in business, brought the olympics back from the brink and was the Governor of a state.

If he isn’t ready to be President then no one is!

Palin is just like any other politician. Uses their charisma and will say anything to get elected. I’d rather have a strong, intelligent person in the highest office. It’s the way it should be. Morality is a luxury when you’re a leader.

I don’t get it then why did you post this?

Bush ended his term with unemployment at 5.8%…[/quote]

So which are you going to go with 5.8% or 7.8%? Make up your mind.

You’re quoting yourself and putting my name on it. Read my first post the very first sentence says it was about 8% when Bush left office.

edit: Actually nm. You made that quote up. If I use ctrl+F to search this page for the words “Bush ended” your post is the only one that shows up.

Who even does something like that?
