    Yes. But so what? Gore and Kerry did too.
    A million guys have the skill and experience to be US president.
    I don't think that's ever been the selection criteria, has it?

    That is the only thing most of the people on here are worried about.
    You wont lose your firearms.

    I really think most of the people would rather keep a GWB type president instead of getting the economy back into shape

    It's all about perception.It's what you make the public/polls see.A/N off base example.Remember how all the folk were worried about JFK/Him bein Catholic,Was he gonna answer ta the Pope or the people.

    It's what each individual voter perceives of each one that is standing for election.And that criteria is a very whimsical.

    Obama is a/n eloquent speech giver and has a dynamic personality.

    McCain is an old hand and has his service record ta stand for him.He speaks fairly well and is to the point.

    It will boil down ta the VP candidates.Biden party surfs and Palin is a/n newbie.

    Folks IMHO it will boil down ta the fact that the country would rather trust a/n women/unproven-yes ta the whims of Biden.Remember all,that ALOT of Hilliary supporters will vote that way because they just don't like Obama/Biden.Why,they are VINDICTIVE and don't like the fact that B/Hilliary was knocked out.'08.

    Lets see...he did something in the past, ie military, POW, etc, he is doing something now, ie, senator, writing and actually VOTING on topics, etc, and I think he will do alot of good in the futer.

    What has OB done...explain community organizer to me(did he set up the 5k walk on the new airport last week?:dunno:) and the fact that he voted 130 times "HERE" which means a no vote...cant make a decision as senator of Illinois, yet you still want him to make decisions as president. GET REAL!

    Is Palin qualified to be VP?

    Remember, she is one old mans heart beat away from being President.

    Yea, you are on GLock Talk... :upeyes: I agree though. And to say that Palin is more qualified than Obama and Biden is LAUGHABLE. Obama/Biden has FAR MORE the experience on it than McCain/Palin. Biden is the 3rd longest seating US Senator in the chamber.

    1. Robert Byrd
    2. Ted Kennedy
    3. Joe Biden

    I am feeling good about this election because I know Obama is going to win and all the McCain supporters are going to be crying and *****ing for the next 4 years. :rofl:

    And how much are ya willing to bet, I will still be going to the range every week, shooting my Glocks? :supergrin::supergrin:

    Are you laughing at the foolishness of your own remark? I am :rofl:

    Perhaps you noticed that Saturday Night Live did not have to change Palin's answers for their opening skit. They actually used her real, actual answers. Think about that.
    Now compare how many people Obama represented in his State Senate district (several hundred thousand) and then as a US Senator (millions) to Palins experience.
    Then compare Obama's to Abe Lincoln's.

    Obama comes out on top every time. Disagree with Obama's policies. OK, fine.
    Call him unqualified? That's just not based on reality and the history of the presidency.

    Oh, by the way. Ask Palin to name one, just one, Supreme Court case besides Row v. Wade. She'll have tp get back to you. Seriously:

    She is Governer of the largest US State by area, and the 6th wealthiest (per capita income). She has control over more financial matters than Biden (or obama). She's down to earth, doesn't conform to the *Elite* and will truly work to serve the American people, not the Washington bureaucrats

    Obama spent 138(?) days in the Senate and couldn't even make a decision on many of the bills that came up for vote. He chose instead to vote "present" a large % of the time. He has missed 306 (24%) of 1287 votes since Jan 6, 2005. He can't even be counted on to do the job he was being paid to do, I can't believe people want to trust him to do the job of protecting our country.

    Your research stinks. Please educate yourself enough about Obama's record to speak intelligently about it. Obama has been a State Senator, and a US Senator. He has been a US Senator for several years.
    The US Senate does not have a "present" vote. Only Yes or No.
    The Illinois Senate does have a "present" vote, and it is an accepted practice in that body.
    By the way, how does Obama's percentage of votes cast compare to McCain's?

    that's true, people don't know with their talking about when they talk about Sarah's lack of experience.


    Lack of experience belongs to barry, he has none, barry been in politics a few years as a person in charge of nothing, and accountable to know one. He was a lawyer ACORN...lol, and a community organizer which means he was a block organizer/agitator. The few years barry has been in the senate 2 of those years has been getting groomed to run for president. People don't talk about his lack of experience, my god, all his political experience was voting, and i can't remember how many times he couldn't make a decision between Ya or Na, so he voted present.

    This guy is empty, he has nothing, where is all the media walking through his hood, you know... the community that he did his organizing in.

    Funny....
