Palin is Completely Inexperienced and Incapable!!!!

By
Mortgage and Lending with Larry Bettag - Cherry Creek Mortgage

I had this forwarded to me this morning.  I love it....Sarah is the best thing that has happened to the US in years....

You heard me. The initial euphoria over the idea of a naughty librarian on the TV news each night for the next 4 to 8 years has worn off. Now, it back to hard, pragmatic reality and the reality is that she has no place in Washington, DC.

Want proof? Consider the following:

Only an amateur would speak off the cuff, as she usually does. Experienced politicians avoid speaking extemporaneously whenever possible.. Otherwise, the electorate might find out what they really think.

If Palin had meaningful experience, she would have known that the job of Ethics Commissioner is SUPPOSED to be corrupt, thus saving her the trouble of resigning in protest and then running for the highest office in the state.

Only an amateur would attain political office by actually defeating opposing candidates at the ballot box. An experienced politician would have eliminated opposition candidates by protesting technical glitches in their nominating petitions or petitioning to change the party rules on how votes are counted in primary elections or hiring groups like ACORN to register 14 people who all, coincidentally, have the same names and reside at the same abandoned and boarded-up restaurant. Did she not once consider taking lessons from the Chicago political machine that got Obama elected? Sheesh.

Any experienced politician knows that upon assuming high office, you are supposed to demand a larger plane; not sell the useless behemoth that was recently purchased by your predecessor.

Only an amateur would implement a comprehensive energy and conservation policy shortly after taking office. A more experienced politician would have avoided the issue outright for at least 30 years while demonizing oil companies, then banning any voting on the topic followed by a recess vacation through the next election

Any experienced politician knows that once elected, you are not supposed to spend your first 20 months in office actually doing the job you were elected to do. You should be campaigning for another office - as Obama could have told her.

Sarah Palin was only supposed to TALK about government reform and utter platitudes about exiling corrupt, entrenched politicians - not actually do anything about it. She demonstrated her naivete by creating a smooth running government that included representatives of other political parties, thereby making it impossible for her to find a scapegoat if anything goes wrong.

Only a political greenhorn would thumb their nose at the environmental lobby by hunting and actually shooting moose and caribou. Worse yet, she foolishly told the truth: the proposed oil drilling site in ANWR is NOT the secret location of Eden but is, in fact, a barren wasteland.

What Sarah Palin does not seem to understand is that here in the 21st century, chief executives do not negotiate beneficial business deals for their states with foreign nations or take time to actually hang out with soldiers in Iraq. That time is better spent preening for the cameras in Berlin - something else a more seasoned and experienced politician such as Obama could have told her.

Holding oil companies accountable and successfully negotiating mutually productive agreements with them proves she does not understand their true purpose: if you work with them to the benefit of your state, you will no longer have a faceless villain to scare people into voting for you.

By creating new jobs instead of demonizing capitalism, Sarah foolishly enabled people to become more reliant on themselves and less reliant on government, hereby diminishing the dependant voter base - a classic newbie mistake. After all, if people have jobs, they will not have much need for the government and will be too busy enjoying their lives to protest the U.S., its corporations and, of course, opposing candidates.

Worse yet, Palin created a budget surplus and mailed it back to the taxpayers. Doesn't she know that if the government generates a surplus, it's doing something wrong? An experienced leader like Obama or Biden knows that taxpayer money belongs to the government - not to the people.

In another rankly amateurish move, she cooperated completely with government officials investigating accusations made against her. Experienced politicians know that you are supposed to stonewall, obfuscate, pressure libraries to expunge any record of unsavory political associations and ship potential witnesses off to Caribbean islands - another good reason not to sell the executive jet.

Yup, she is hopelessly inexperienced.  I love all of her inexperience.

Larry, Good one!  I was about ready to jump in here and vent.  You had me hooked. 

Never been out of the country?  I thought Alaska was out of the country?

Who gives a rat's butt what David Letterman said.  Late night TV's been down the dumper since Johnny left.

Like the t-shirt idea!  You could have a hockey mom pit bull taking a chomp out of someone named Barak.  What's worse, the Barak or the Bite?

To Kevin, shame on you. You shouldn't criticize Obama because he voted present. No one ever told him the difference between roll call and a vote. Come on, that's not his fault!

What's it going to be like to have a real person from a real family as VP? It's a shame they are attacking her so hard but I can see she's a pretty tough lady. Kind of brings to mind an American Maggie Thatcher. I think what really ticks the left off is that she can be a strong woman without being a man-hater.

Larry, Nicely done. Maybe you managed to lure a couple of the misinformed into your trap. But no matter even if you didn't because we appreciate what you had to say.

I was really happy to see Sarah Palin when she accepted McCain's nod. I knew that we had a chance after all.

Nick....glad to shock....we need to shock the liberals so that their inner eyes can be opened.

Ken...not one bit buddy....there's faults with everyone.  Why doesn't it shock the rest of the US that Obama never did anything during his tenure DURING THE TIME THAT HE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO MORE THAN being a glorified community organizer?  Finally, why doesn't it shock people that he had to vote "present" 131 times????  Each candidate has their weaknesses.  But Sarah has a sharp learning ability.

Jane Page...Have I ever met you?  Is it OK for me to say that YOU ROCK?

Charlie...great points....but Alaska is in our country...but I know what you meant. Go Sarah!

Larry...I think of that all the time...the American Thatcher.

Bill....born to play head games...thanks.

Hi Larry.  Not one bit? 

Larry, I appreciate your enthusiasm, but the fact she has never left the country doesn't bother you one bit?  Seems odd.  Beyond odd.

No need to pile on Obama with your response.  I am not commenting about him.

I am concerned with all the over the top enthusiasm for a candidate most of us hadn't heard of two weeks ago.

She seems like a fine lady.  She gave a great speech (although the best lines are being watered down as she repeats them on the campaign trail).

How much of your support is religion based??

Ken...maybe he's done something, but he'd have a lot to run for in 4 years when he's done something for our country, but again, this isn't about Obama.  You're right though...off the radar 2 weeks ago and she's kicking it right now.  More vetting out needs to be done, but I love what I've researched.  I like people who won't just committee things to death.  Whether right or wrong she reminds me of a female Ditka.  Let's just get stuff done.  Relgion???  No....a bit of faith...sure.  Needless to say....faith, religion and whatever definitely aren't a driving force in my support.  Just her strength and values.

Palin is actually has more executive experience than Obama, Biden, McCain, or Hillary.  It is nice to see a fresh face.  She sure makes the Dems squirm.

I am a Christian and so is Gov. Palin. That is about where it ends for me. I am more interested in her go get it done attitude as well as her anti-abortion stance and her pro-gun position. Big ones for me.

We also agree with Rich Jacobson ... that "The majority of Americans desperately wish for the days when our elected officials were 'one of us' and were truly committed to representing the best interests of 'We the People.'"   GO McCAIN AND PALIN.  Harrison K. Long

Well personally I am TOTALLY AGAINST anyone that would attempt, much less succeed, in ousting political corruption!  Where would this country be if ALL the corrupt politicians were run off?  Like Bobby Kennedy going after the mob while big brother was Pres, Palin could potentially destroy corruption.  That just wouldn't be American!

Larry - this has turned into an outstanding thread. At first they tried to dismiss her as of no consequence, but when they recognized how much the American people understood who she is and how alike the rest of us she truly is, then they started the truly unprecedented attacks on her. My personal favorite is that she is racist and hates Eskimos. This must make her home life really interesting as her husband is 50% Eskimo. I guess she must REALLY love the half that isn't!

Sarah Palin should be impeached for abusing her governmental powers.

Penn Properties - did you read the report or just a headline?  Her "abuse of power" was an ethics violation that states it's a violation of public trust for government officials to personally gain from official action.  Or, in her case, the panel felt from testimony, her inaction to stop her husband from pursuing the firing of the officer.

In fact, in the 263 page report available online, a legislative recommendation was made to revise a statute that allows those who file complaints about peace officers receive some feedback on the status and outcome of their complaint.  The report went on to say that they recognized Palins were frustrated because the law prohibited them from getting an update to know if their complaint was being investigated.  It was, but the investigative officer wasn't allowed to tell them such.  I conclude from that section that if the family had been given any feedback, the constant pursuit to try to get him fired might have been avoided.

The rest of the findings which you left out are that the reassignment of Monegan was done with proper and lawful authority by Governor Palin and that her "abuse" did not warrant any sanctions or criminal investigations.

It turns out Sarah Palin is a liability. McCain's lack of judgment picking her as his VP along with his statement on 9/15/08 "The economy is fundamentally Strong" (McCain is fundamentally Wrong!) will be remembered as the defining moments when McCain lost the election.

When Bush speaks the market tanks and McCain's poll numbers tank.

I can't wait to see Tina Fey tonight on SNL.

Penn Properties has the "answers". 

It's interesting that ALL of the Pro Obama people NEVER talk about what Obama is FOR or what he is going to DO but what McCain CAN'T do and said.  Interesting.

This county will get what it deserves...corruption at the top, coverup of Fannie Mae and ACORN...God Forbid...we don't want the truth about any Obama connections.
