Is Sarah Palin ready?

No experience, only a governor for two years before being put on the national ticket?  Too religious?  Bible studies in the evening?  And yet, can’t take care of the children?  One daughter marries a man 30 years older.  Another rejects the family faith and flees to an Ashram in India. 

Sarah Palin?  Nope.  All of the above is about Woodrow Wilson, not Sarah Palin and Wilson is ranked by historians as one of the greatest of American presidents.

  1. Teddy Roosevelt was 42 when elected Vice President . He had been governor of New York for about as long as Palin has been Governor of Alaska. He became President one year later. Theodore Roosevelt is one of the most acclaimed and accomplished President’s in our nations history. He is on Mount Rushmore for God’s sake. He was an avid hunter and one of the first environmentalists, preserving millions of acres in National Parks.

    Your “argument” lacks credibility and facts.

  2. Ridgeliner is correct.

    SP is also a refreshing break from those shrill power harridans in the Hillary mold. SP communicates like an ordinary person and doesn’t sound like a politician.

    I’m also thankful that the GOP ticket isn’t topped by two backstabbing attorneys.

    Doug, no family is spot-on perfect. Yours included. Don’t be a hypocrite.

  3. I think the other commenters missed your point, Doug.

    You continue to inspire me. Have fune in MN and keep up the good work.

  4. I think she adds so much to the ticket for McCain that he may stand a chance against Obama because she is on the ticket.

    If you can Govern a State, and fight big oil, in a place like Alaska… you have enough experience to be President.

  5. Personally, I don’t know Doug well enough to be familiar with when he is or is not being sarcastic.

    I take commentary at face value unless there are clear signals otherwise, unless that’s what the Woodrow Wilson remark was intended to accomplish.

  6. I’m not sure how her daughters’ decisions affect the argument, “Is Sarah ready?” You cannot mean that since her children made mistakes (if that is what they in fact are “mistakes”). Possibly you feel she’s not prepared because of some hypocracy or perceived hypocracy on her part as far as the religious views, bible studies, etc and the supposed conflict with her children’s behaviours. I’m not certain the actions of the children are to be blamed on Sarah. Her children are of an age where they are capable of making their own decisions. True, they are not decisions I agree with or would make myself. However, I do not think those actions or decisions affect Sarah’s ability to serve in the VP role.

  7. It was obvious sarcasm. Woodrow Wilson was considered a great president by many even though he came into the position with the above resume. Palin could follow the same scenario.

    I have a new idea-let Mr. Black’s comments go unanswered and he’ll probably get into debates with himself.

  8. Uh, tell me, raleyb, who was it the other day complaining about repetitiveness on another board?

    Imploring others to not respond to my posts is a fruitless endeavor attempted by other thin skinned types that precede you.

    Perhaps if you galvanized your positions with more practical and expedient reasoning instead of the kind of paranoid hysterics espoused by the potheads in the Ron Paul campaign, then perhaps I’d throw you a bone.
