Question for the Sarah Palin haters.

Discussion in 'Politics' started by peilthetraveler, Nov 18, 2010.

  1. If Sarah Palin were to become president, what is it that you fear so much that she would do to this country that would be detrimental to you or someone else? Please only answer seriously and no generalizations like "she's stupid and we dont need a stupid president" i want to know the exact reason that she would be worse for this country than anyone else.
  2. I think she would be great as President.
  3. maybe we could ask someone who knows her well and has worked with her for many years:

    Republican U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski says she doesn't think Sarah Palin has the leadership qualities to be president, nor the "intellectual curiosity" needed to make good policy.

    Murkowski shared her take on the matter during an appearance on Monday's edition of "CBS Evening News" with Katie Couric.

    "I just do not think that she has those leadership qualities, that intellectual curiosity that allows for building good and great policies," explained the incumbent lawmaker when asked about a previous suggestion she's made that she wouldn't support Palin for president. "You know, she was my governor for two years. And I don't think that she enjoyed governing."

    Elaborating on her view, Murkowski continued, "I want somebody that goes to bed at night and wakes up in the morning thinking about how we're going to deal with our national security issues, how we're going to deal with our economy, how we're going to deal with providing better education or peace in the Middle East."

    I'm not a Palin hater, although I hope she does not run. If she does run I hope she does not get the nomination.

    I don't think she's sufficiently qualified or knowledgeable.

    But then of course neither is Obama.

    I will vote for ANYONE but Obama though, so if it's Palin vs Dumbo, I will vote Palin.

    I get depressed thinking about <i>any</i> of the likely candidates for 2012. Perhaps I can take comfort in the thought that by then the Pleidians or whatever will have landed and become our new overlords.

    Thats my exact position. I do not want her as republican nominee but would vote for her against Obama.

    I really hope we can find someone stronger for executive. She is fully qualified for a cabinet position, perhaps energy or interior dept. She may have a bright future if she gains experience and smartens up on policy.
  7. See..thats exactly what I'm talking about with generalizations. Saying "i dont think she would be a good leader" is a lame answer. I want a Palin hater to give me something with substance. Somehow I dont think they will be able to find anything other than "she reads notes off her hand" Or "she can see russia from her house"

    I'm not a fan of Palin and I can't imagine voting for her but at the same time I don't really fear her getting elected. But I think she would be less than ideal relative to other candidates on either side of the aisle.

    I think the impact would be her making decisions and driving policy based purely on ideological reasons, everything else be damned. Also, I think it would be primarily the people around her driving decision making more so than would be the case with someone else. Maybe you can relate to this, can you imagine what it would be like if Maxine Waters was president (hopefully you know who she is)? I think she would be about equivalent of Palin being president except that the policy being pushed would be far to the left.
  9. You took the opinion of someone who dislikes her, you leftist socialist moron! Didn't do much thinkin there, did ya. [​IMG]
  10. In an interview with CBS television, Obama said that he has not blamed his policies for the loss, but rather a lack of communication with the American people.

    Obama blames poor communication for his failure to motivate voters.

    On the other hand, Sarah Palin with her simple message, motivates 10's of millions to vote for her ideas.

    Who is the better leader?
