I've watched "Naylin' Paylin" so it's hard for me to take anything with her seriously.

But even then I wonder what she'd be up to: Speaking as someone who isn't American, I don't know of anyone at all who considers her a candidate of anything, let alone the Presidency, so who knows what she's thinking.  If it's anything like politics here, people generally jump ship when things are about to go bad, or to avoid a controversy of some kind [or get voted out]  I've yet to see someone go out on top here and still be regarded as a 'good sort'.

It has nothing to do with her gender at all. But everytime she opens her mouth and says something idiotic, I just wanted to tell her in person to please just shut the hell up and go away for good.  If she is already the best option  that the Republican party has to challenge Barack in 2012 then they are in even worse shape then I thought that they already were. I smell some kind of scandal on the horizon as to why she is stepping down in midterm.

Because shes a maverick, you betcha!    Lookingup   

She is a functional illiterate at best and I wonder how some people can look at this woman and one, see her some how running the country and two, think that her hokey winking and you betchas are endearing.   Its crazy. How many colleges did she go to before finally getting a degree in journalism? 6 I think in 6 years.

Now that's not necessarily a bad thing but when you consider her most recent act of quitting it shows a pattern.

I'm as worried about her getting elected president as I am about the possibility of developing ovarian cancer. Neither are going to happen. Like I said before, I expect to see her on the Republican primary ballot but seriously doubt she will get the nomination. I put her odds of winning on par with the same odds of Al Sharpton winning the Democratic nomination or for that matter, Papa Smurf being elected President of the United States, ain't ever going to happen.

If you go to the latest poll figures from "USA Today," you'll see that her quitting has improved her standing among Republicans and worsen her standing among Democrats and Independents. Independents saying by a majority of 55% to 44%, that they'd would not vote for her as president, if she did run.

There is some good news for her among the poll results. Not only Republicans, but Independents by a small majority, think she has been treated unfairly by the press.

I really don't know why anyone would consider her qualified for anything. She was Mayor of Wasilla, a very prosperous community, one that was growing before, during, and after she was mayor, and at that, it's not any real huge city. On top of that, she did nothing to solve the problems it has, such as being the hub for the state's illegal drug market. She ran for Gov to succeed Murkowski, possibly the WORST Gov ever, his own party didn't want him on the ballot for re-election. Murkowski is the biggest thieving sleaze to walk this state, outright saying he'd plainly go around the entire state procurement (so he outright broke the law, intentionally) just to replace his prop-plane with a jet, just to be like the other Govs. Is it any surprise she won? Her entire campaign was "I'm not Frank Murkowski, and since I don't know what to do, I'll just do the opposite of what he did". Her resume includes being Commander-in-Chief of the Ak National Guard, and she'll tell anyone that will listen that, BUT, she has not done a single thing or made one decision regarding the AKNG, it's nothing but resume fluff. Does anyone really want a president or VP that NEEDS resume fluff? As Gov, she hasn't really done ANYTHING except a bunch of superficial crap. Yes, she sold Frank's Jet and put the money back into State coffers, , but realize she did sell it at a loss. She vowed to get the natural gas pipeline going, which she started strong on, but like a kid with A.D.D., it's gone nowhere after the initial burst, and we don't hear anything about it. Then if was off due to being pregnant, then on the campaign trail. We've gotten in those couple years what, a couple MONTHS of leadership from her? More than once she's tried to start something and pushed her way right into making it obvious she is like a bull in a china shop. For one, she started working on getting inmates housed out-of state back, and making decent progress, before bothering to figure out that we just didn't have the space to house them. THEN she started pushing to get a new prison built. Can you say 'cart before the horse'? Keep in mind that Alaska is one of the easier states to run: We have the permanent fund, and the majority of the people perceive it as the Government giving the people money, so they don't question the State nearly as much as other states do. BUT, is you want a good-looking woman in the white house and that's all you're concerned with, then she's your candidate.

So we should elect someone because they were a war hero? Is being a 'War Hero' what you consider 'substance' in regards to being president?

"So we should elect someone because they were a war hero? Is being a 'War Hero' what you consider 'substance' in regards to being president?"

A couple of you have posed that question in one form or another, so let me answer briefly.

I think that those who have sufffered and sacrificed for this country, like John McCain or Dwight Eisenhower, or even Andrew Jackson, treasure the nation in a way that those who have never had to actually defend their freedom cannot.  (And yes, I include myself in that latter category.  I spent four years in the Navy during the Reagan years, but never served in combat.)  I think military service, and especially military command, during time of great peril, gives a person a much clearer vision of what a dangerous place this world is, and just how fragile our freedoms actually are. And, far from being warmongers, those who have endured the horrors of combat are usually the least likely to start new conflicts.  They have seen how high the price of freedom is.

 That is something lifelong bureaucrats like Obama and Bill Clinton can never appreciate.

As far as Mrs. Palin goes, I have never lived where she governed, but I have watched a number of interviews with her. I find her charming and intelligent, but in need of seasoning.  I do not thing resigning the office, or publicly being so thin-skinned, will help her politically.  But I do share her basic political philosophy, and I find her lack of political correctness refreshing.

And, since I despise this country's sheeplike, liberal mainstream media, their attempts to destroy her made me even fonder of her, just as their unrelenting worship of Obama fills me with suspicions regarding him.

indianasmith, I have personally known a great many veterans who are nothing but trash; drunks, meth addicts, wife beaters.  I have known veterans who I wouldn't trust to manage a McDonald's, much less a city, state, or country.

Some people joined the armed forces because the love the United States.  Others joined it just to get money for college, others just because they couldn't think of anywhere else they could get three meals and a place to sleep, a few may have just wanted to be Rambo.

In short, veterans are people just like any others.  You can't make a judgement about what kind of people they are based solely on the fact of their military service.  Some of them are heroes, some of them are patroits, some of them are just guys who did some time in the service, some of them are scum.

This is not intended to be read as a dismissal of members of the armed forces, past or present.  But you cannot and should not judge someone's character based on their military experience any more than you would if that person had been a doctor or a teacher.

Well, I wasn't speaking of just veterans as a whole.  I was speaking specifically of those who have acquitted themselves with valor and distinction in combat.  Most - albeit not all - of them tend to be a cut above the average person you meet.

True, I have known some folks, both in my active duty time and since I got out, who do not seem to be improved one whit by their service to our country.  But many are, especially when they have been tried in the fires of combat and come out mentally intact.  War is a bitter crucible, and many good men melt in it . . . but others are tempered to become more than they ever would have otherwise.
