Palin better bet than Obama, Biden

  • Follow Letters

Regarding Lowell Greenbaum's Sept. letter, "Choice of Sarah Palin is truly appalling":

Would the Democrat persons who would be commander in chief, either Barack Obama or Joe Biden, any better? Neither has had any military experience unless you count as experience Biden's son being in the military. Hopefully not.

In fact, Obama has zero military experience, even though he can call on his homegrown terrorist friends to advise him on how to make pipe bombs to kill innocent people. Biden's only military experience was to get five draft deferments, based on his asthma. A lot of Americans have served in the military with asthma problems. Talk about George Bush and Dick Cheney ducking military responsibilities -- well, Biden is a draft dodger supreme...

Sarah has at least commanded a state national guard. What have Obama and Biden commanded? Terrorists of the world will chew Obama and Biden up and spit them out.

Also, how much military experience would Hillary Clinton have brought to the table? Zero!...

When a sentence begins with a slur against someone's character how in the world would someone anyone take your comment, grouse, with any sort of seriousness...The letter does address an issue(pretty downright important issue) and quite succinctly...

Grouse. Palin is the

Grouse. Palin is the COMMANDER in Chief of the Alaska National Guard. Obama is friends with William Ayers. Ayers is an unrepentant terrorist. These are verifiable facts. You can deny it if you want, but it's true. Grow up and accept what is true.

Great letter - You completely devastated the Dem ticket using only Governor Palin. Now if we add war hero McCain to the ticket it gets even more impossible to defend putting up two leftists to defend this nation against all enemies foreign and domestic.

As I said before....MOST

As I said before....MOST Obama supporters will contiinue to support him, even if they saw him eating small children. He can do no wrong in their eyes. They see no problem with him sitting in a church for 20 years listening to a minister talk about how bad White America is. But that's ok....keep on supporting him.

Neither ticket is something

Neither ticket is something to write home about...except Palin. She offers the one bright spot in the presidential race. Let's hope enough Americans are smart enough to prevent the Obama burden from being strapped to the people's back.

Poor loser conservatives.

Poor loser conservatives. They are demonstrating their true core, now that the election is nearing. They are going bonkers and my predictions have all come true. They will soon began calling him the N-word and fellow racists will demand an investigation into his race. Wow! What's really clear is, the depth of lies associated with the right, but a simple review of history provides many answers. The problem is, that this BS ain't working this time round and they are losing their collective minds. Ha!

"Regarding Lowell Greenbaum"

"Regarding Lowell Greenbaum" is an opening statement into oblivian. Anything tied to that kook (Lowell the Green Bomb) isn't worth the time to respond. John McCain and Sarah Palin may lose and if so America gets what it desrves ... four more years of a downward spiral!

sistaabdummax: What is your

sistaabdummax: What is your point? Her husband is a sucessionist who was a member of the Alaska Independence Party (AIP)...To me anyone who is a sussessionist is a TERRORIST and you can't deny she is "Palling around" with her hubby the sucessionist...btw, Ayers is a Distingushed Professor for the University of Illinois at Chicago...The board Sen. Obama sat on with him was also sat on by republicans, the mayor. Sen. Obama was 8 years old when Ayers did what he did in protest of the Vietnam War, and Sen. Obama has called his actions detestable and wrong...The bigger quetion is this: If we are to buy into your flawed theory of guilt by association what do we then do with the THOUSANDS of students who sat in Ayer's classes at UI??? by your definition they are sleeper cells who need to be reprogrammed and held at Gitmo...That said try again with the guilt by association concept cause it's RETARDED and won't hunt!!!

Greenbums LTE was boringly

Greenbums LTE was boringly liberal. Sleaze, slime and smear. The trouble with liberalism is that it has no moral core and is a religion of moral relativism. Being such a belief system its adherents can speak deceptively and believe that they are telling the truth. That is what we saw in Greenbum's letter and in those who defend him.

So someone who advocates

So someone who advocates States Rights, or even succession is, in your eyes, the same as someone who has attempted to blow up the Pentagon? Nice comparison. ThatOne, you make some pretty wild assumptions about what you THINK i believe. I never said ANYONE who is influenced by Terrorist Ayers needs to have ANYTHING done to them, ie "reprogrammed". I currently hold a Q level security clearance. If I had the exact same associations as Obama, I would have had my clearance denied. It seems foolish to me to grant the highest security clearance we have to a man who couldn't get the same clearance that I need in order to do my job. Again, these are simple facts that the left likes to ignore. And the name calling really makes your argument look a great deal more credible.

Christian, the fact that you

Christian, the fact that you believe the letter writer delivered any message with clarity or class speaks volumes. That Obama is a friend of Ayers is not verifiable. Sitting on a board with someone does not necessarily mean friendship. The two served on the board of a community anti-poverty group, the Woods Fund of Chicago, between 2000 and 2002, during which time the board met twelve times. In April 2001, Ayers contributed $200 to Obama's re-election fund to the Illinois State Senate. Since 2002, there has been little linking Obama and Ayers. The senator said in September 2008 that he hadn't "seen him in a year-and-a-half." In February 2008, Obama spokesman Bill Burton released a statement from the senator about the relationship between the two: "Senator Obama strongly condemns the violent actions of the Weathermen group, as he does all acts of violence. But he was an eight-year-old child when Ayers and the Weathermen were active, and any attempt to connect Obama with events of almost forty years ago is ridiculous."

The Alaskan Independence

The Alaskan Independence Party is a political party in the U.S. state of Alaska that advocates a state vote which includes several options, including increased state autonomy, territorial status, becoming a separate nation or commonwealth state, and, failing that, for increased Alaskan control of Alaskan land, gun rights, privatization, home schooling, and reduction of governmental intrusion in the private lives of its citizens with adherence to the founding documents of the United States. The party has appeared on the ballot in Alaska in all state elections since 1970.

At other times, party members have also proposed that the state explore the possibility of joining Canada.

The Reps ended up with a candidate that most of them didn't like or vote for. He then picked a VP canidate even most Reps hadn't heard of. MCain then changes positions on so many things he doesn't even know where he stands. Palin proves to be an empty suit who was not properly vetted. While jumping on Obama supporters as "worshipping" him, the right then starts "worshipping" her. Also, how about writing LTE referencing relatively current letters, editorials, and events.

I am so glad you understand Republicant...Now for some excellent reading material on the mentality of many Democrats you might want to google Obama and messiah...I do not capitalize the word messiah as used in connection since it is indicative of a mentally unstable group who would use messiah in connection with a low-life character as Obama...But again thanks for your support...And a good morning to you Republicant....

It funny that Obama can

It funny that Obama can remove any responsibility for things in his life by detesting or not condone somewho he is associated with. He has had to detest or not condone his associates actions quite a few times in thsi election process. To me this reflects the type of people he associates with. He does not condone his reverend's action but he was with him for over twenty years. At what ppoint in that time did he have this enlightment? When it made him look bad. It sounds like excuses.Just because you make an excuse does not mean everything is okay.

So MCcain should be linked to

So MCcain should be linked to Bush by association, but Don't link Obama to Ayres or Farrakhan, or Rezco, or Jerimiah Wright, or Biden for that matter(He is a proven liar over and over). Should we NOT make the connections? MCcain is linked to someone who loves OUR country, and the other is linked to people who HATE our Country.

What is wrong with voting for

What is wrong with voting for Oboma because he is black? He is also as qualified as George Bush was!! George owened a savings and loan, and it went belly up, and cost taxpayers money.He also owned a baseball team thay went belly up.Look at the country today, under George Bush and the republicans. For the first time, african americans can go in a booth and vote for someone of color!!! White people have been able to go in a booth and vote for thier race all thier life! What is wrong with that picture? Oboma will be the greatest president this country have ever seen. He can not do anything to this country, but make it a better country. Also white people will be voting for him, that is how he became the canidate for president, I don;t see you talking about them. Just face it not only are blacks ready for a change, but most white people are too.

Military experience doesn't

Military experience doesn't make you a great leader. You people are coming up with any excuse not to vote for Obama. You don't have to vote for Obama people there are othe canidates on the ballot. It's funny when there's a minority that is very well educated, a good father figure, and an upstanding citizen you people find something that happened when he was eight years old. Palin's husband is in a group of Alaskan citizen that want to succede from the United States but no one calls him a terrorist thats scary. There is no telling what his group has planned for this country.

Ok, let us look at the

Ok, let us look at the financial status of Illinois, really bad. The crimes committed since Obama became a State Senator, risen. Earmarks pushed through by Obama, almost 1 billion. Obamas' biggest accomplishment is his ability to radicalize so many welfare-recieving constituents, to go the voter booth for him, sometimes multiple times in a day. This guy reeks of the typical Chicago corruption, that EVERYONE knows exists, and yet Mainstream media tries to hide or not report THE FACTS. How can OBAMA be connected to so many questionable realationships, and we are to believe that none of it is true? C'mon.

Just because McCain was a POW

Just because McCain was a POW doe not necessarily make him fit to lead our military. As for Palin, commanding the Alaskan National Guard is not much better either. If you remember George Bush served in the National Guard and he has not done very well as the commander of our military. When you step back and look at the situation, these "commanders" have not given any real evidence of very good judgement. in regards to association with terrorists, what about the fiscal terrorism of the Republican Party and big business torpedoing the economy. This economic disaster we are experiencing is another blunder under Bush. McCain has said many times he will continue to follow those same Bush policies. This amounts to nothing more than the same we have endured for 8 years. Makes you wonder who is getting on the job training - McCain still can't get it right. His choice for VP - Palin - proves his lack of good judgement.
