My definition of "breaking down" obviously different than yours.

Oh well, I'm a happy camper today, gas was $3.43 at Capitol.

Listen I know all about Biden's family being tragicly killed & for that I'm sorry.............but his tears were brought on only for show!
Obama is gonna be a good leader some day...........like when he realizes being president is more than traveling the talk show circuits.
I'll take Mccain & Barbie, and thats what so great about this country.......we all have a choice & a voice ....Nov 4th, make yours known!

Unfortunately, I only have a voice, not a vote.

Mom, there is no "time and place" for grief. It was heartfelt, I take offense that anyone feels he used it for the pity vote. Is your child in harm's way? I am not a Palin fan, but if she had shown a parental emotion having been through what Biden's been through, I would have been touched. Come to a Compassionate Friends meeting for parents who have lost children and you may change your tone.

I figured that my comments about politics were going to stir up some emotions. Thank god for free speech. I understand that everyone should have an interest in the up-coming election, as it will effect the entire world. I did watch it myself and was impressed with Tine Fey, sorry Sara Palin. She held her own as a "newbie" politician against a 20 year Senator. I just wanted to start an interesting thread. I pnly lived in STX for 8 months. I have since moved back to my island, which is Long Island New York. I still check this site on a daily basis. I enjoy reading everyone's perspectives on all the matters. And trust me this site helped me a lot with my move and my stay. I miss the island more and more each day especially now with the temperature dropping. Good Luck to all with your local politics and WAPA. We left the island with a bill that was never resolved by them even after we left a forwarding address. No wonder they have to keep raising your rates. The Blind can only lead the blind so far. Talk to everyone now and then.

Well, I am living in the states right now, so I will be able to vote in this election. I will be proud to vote for Obama and Biden. The VP "debate was a farce. While Palin was able to sound bite the format enough to look less pathetic then in past interviews, she still showed us that she would be a huge mistake if one day she became President. Oh, and I can't believe the right wing crap that Biden "faked" his emotions. Attack attack attack, that is all the right wing knows how to do.

The comments from the poster named 'mom' are as scary has Palin herself. Hey, Palin is against women's' rights. She wants the church to control government and is wrong on every issue I consider important. This is a woman who refuses to allow other woman basic rights and she has tried to censure library books.. Her rigid outlook on abortion and religion should draw the opposition of every caring woman in America. End of rant....

Ms Information, I cannot let it pass. (For the rest of you normal democrats, who can discuss differences of opinion civilly, this rant is only to the leftist, socialist, idealogues, not you, ok?) Governor Palin did exceedingly well and held her own against a 30 year veteran. That is truly what we need if we are ever to attack the corruption of Washington and Wall St. Someone who sees straight and doesn't let the "we've always gotten away with it before" crowd will not be allowed to continue its lackluster, platitudinous do-nothing meandering. "Attack, attack, attack?" That's all you liberal left wing wackos have done since she came on the scene. I have never seen such vicious vitriol in my life. Sure Governor Palin disagrees with you about abortion. But you forget that women's rights include the right to choose....including choosing LIFE. (It is a constitutional right, after all) Your rigid outlook on abortion and religion, your lack of tolerance, your blind allegience to the notion that everyone has a right to an opinion except Christians shows us why, for the last 8 dismal years we as a country took the lesser of two evils and elected Bush. Remember, Obama voted 4 times to pass a bill that allows aborted babies who survive the procedure to be left in a linen closet until they die. That is not humane to me, maybe it is to you. It is Obama who scares the daylights out of me. He is incredibly naive about the intentions of some miscreant world leaders. His economic policies will likely usher in a depression like we have never seen before. His antipathy toward the military that protects him and the rest of us is amazing.

*going all Palin on a brother*: y'know, dood... it's not whatcha say but how ya sayit...

When you entered the conversation, you were lacking facts, and I hope that you now know why we are interested in those debates.

We are free to elect idiots or geniuses, that is true. I assume that you are a registered voter, as I have been ever since I was able to become one.

Palin is a scrapper but I still would not elect her. She was well coached, and insisted on bringing the discussion back to areas of familiarity, and she spent a lot of time being charming. Experience or not, I would not want her for veep.

On the other hand, she is a formidable foe. If necessary, I'd march off to battle with her and pity the fool who gets in her way.

Barack Obama is not as naive as many think, just ask the politicians of Illinois that he and his team left in the dust, stunned and surprised at their collective use of what was at their disposal: the law and the ability to generate groundswell support in place of legacy inclusion. Hillary had to get over it too.

I eagerly await the results of the November election.

Harry Truman turned out OK as VP, and then President he had a lot of problems. I Think both VP Candidates would do just fine if ever they needed to be called upon. One of, if not the largest problem the World has is energy. I believe both candidates have equal experience in that realm. Soooooooooooooooooo" You can't say may the better man win".

IMO partisan politics are a large part of what is wrong with our country. Too many people vote Republican/Democrat regardless of who is the best candidate. Everyone should look at the positive and negative attributes of all 4 candidates and then make an informed decision. Try to look at these attributes clearly and not through left/right side views. It seems to me that the American public is loosing it's ability to make independent decisions without checking the party line first. On a recent trip stateside I overheard someone say, "I don't like him at all but what am I going to do, vote Republican?". Sad statement. Vote for who you feel will do the best job, period.

Thank you

You prove my point about attacking (and name calling) from the right wing. All you seem to have is your worn out mantra about the "bad libs".

This is not a political board so this my last comment on this issue.

"Sure Governor Palin disagrees with you about abortion. But you forget that women's rights include the right to choose....including choosing LIFE"

antiqueone, I don't think anyone was advocating compulsory abortion, just the right to choose. I don't think Palin wants us to have that choice (correct me, if I'm wrong)

Oh, and of course Palin didn't do too badly against a 30 year veteran - women are much better at arguing than men. 😉

When she's promoting that life-cherishing Christian image, do people realize that she enjoys killing animals as a hobby?
The wolves in Alaska have to be killed because they eat deer, and "darn it" now there aren't enough deer left for her to kill!

Actually she kills for the meat, not for the pure pleasure. Theres a difference..........cows are like domesticated moose.......are we all killers then every time we bite into a burger? No, it is for pure pleasure of eating, not to mention survival. People all over this world eat things many of us grocery store babies would NEVER imagine!!! Like , I dunno...........MOOSE! Just because it doesn't come from the store, wrapped in plastic & branish your dinning table doesn't mean it's not tasty! I grew up on a farm & we killed lots of cows,pigs,chickens...........then we HUNTED, KILLED & FIELD DRESSED deer, quail, pheasant,rabbit & squirrel............It's all in what you grow up with. So it doesn't make her less of a person.......I'd rather be the last person on Earth with someone who can feed them selves say killing & field dressing a moose, then stuck with a hungry trust fund baby crying for his butler. Just MOHP 🙂

I don't think she eats wolves, but she had some hanging on her walls.

Just got finished watching the intro skit to Saturday Night Live, and it was quite funny. The Biden character, the Palin character AND the Ifill character all got good laughs. Queen Latifah played the part of Gwen Ifill, and she shamelessly plugged her book and even got to deliver the line, "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!!!"

Republicans don't stand a chance in the VI. I think the last republican elected to the senate was Anne Golden ten years ago. The problem is that republicans don't promise as much free stuff to the people. Notice who throws the largest fish frys on the islands. Go Dems! Gimme gimme gimme!

I've got the answer. Palin should promise FREE MOOSE!

Don't get me wrong, I can't stand the right wing religious/moral BS from the republicans either.

I wish we had decent choices. We need to somehow decouple the money from the politics so that a few new parties had a chance. We need more choices.
