Mr. Playgirl=Levi Johnson, her daughter's baby daddy. He's gonna be in Playgirl mag in a few months, it's been all over the news.
I don't watch any of the news channels regularly as they all disappoint.
For the record it wasn't her vs. Barack it was McCain who I think would be doing better. The president's power lies in his/her ability to appoint the most powerful men/women who run the country (except for congress). The "blame Bush" for all of the current issues is running a bit old. He didn't appoint Geithner or countless other clowns now in office. End of rant.

Interesting…….Well if that's the case ("the president's power lies in his/her ability to appoint the most powerful men/women who run the country"), didn't McCain appoint Sarah Palin as his running mate (just a heart beat from the presidency)? If you can't even make that appointment, "a smart one" (no pun intended) then what makes you think he would do a better job in running the country......

Man, I gotta stay out of this section.
While I do not agree with the choice of Palin as VP, I wasn't even referring to that appointment. Are you saying that Joe B has been busy fixing things? Is there another president in history who has appointed so many people with "questionable" tax paying practices and other possibly criminal doings? I know some guys would chime in with "our 42nd!"
Yeah I loved how McCain's impending death was used against his campaign as it made more of the attention on her.
A bit off topic.

Joe has been as much involved as say, Dick Chaney was.

It’s kind of amazing….

A ridiculous president can trash the country for eight years, and you won’t hear a peep from conservatives. But if a Democrat so much as jaywalks, they all go into fits.
Torture? A reckless war based on lies? Huge windfalls for the oil companies that the administration used to (and apparently always has) worked for? Violating the most basic freedoms? Taking a strong economy ("our 42nd") and tanking it (our 43rd)?
And you are worried about a couple thousand dollars in accounting errors!?

Furthermore, does it occur to anyone that maybe one reason so many nominees have problems with tax returns is that the tax code is so damned complicated that it is easy to make unintentional errors and oversights no matter how hard one tries to be honest and complete. Some of these nominees are symptomatic of millions of taxpayers who make inadvertent errors because not even the IRS understands the tax code. Note that if you ask for IRS help, they will not guarantee that their answer is correct. Or you can get diametrically opposed answers from different IRS “helpers.” What??!! If the IRS can’t give straight, guaranteed answers to tax questions, what does that say about the system. How many senators and congressmen have had tax boo-boos?

It is interesting that the Republican party had its best results in the states with the worst education (deep south) and the highest teenage pregnancy rate (traditional values) - thank Palin for that...

It's off topic but what the hell.....

No I don't. I don't think he was qualified to be President, but that is just me. He is all talk and promise with no action. To me it seems like he won based on a slogan of change and his "celebrity" status and now that he is President he can't put any decent plans together. His approval rating helps support my opinion. The Dems have majority control and they still can't put anything in motion. That is notorious Democrat though. Gripe, bitch, protest, complain and then when it comes time to make decisions...crickets.

I don't like Palin. It would have been horrible if she became President by default if something happened to McCain, but we will not be any better off with Biden as President if something were to happen to Obama. He is only human after all and a Biden Presidency is a possibility. Scary isn't it?

Out of the two candidates that had any real chance of winning, I think McCain would have been better. Is there any way of knowing that for sure, no.

And when you said the Republican party had its best results in the states with the worst education (deep south) and the highest teenage pregnancy rate (traditional values)...the flip side to that is that it is funny that the Democrats did much better in inner cities where crime, murder, rape and government cheese abuse runs rampant.

It was a "landslide victory" so yes, he also won in the inner cities....

You and many other conservatives on this forum claim not to like Palin. So can you then please explain as to why key conservative leaders/faces of the GOP support her? Is this just a political decoy to attract the backward Tea Party types or political suicide?

Can you explain how the Democrats continue to support Pelosi when she is a certifiable left wing whack job?

I guess the same way the GOP continues to support Michele Bachmann, Joe Wilson and yes, Sarah Palin (a few certifiable right wing whack jobs)....
