    funny Key Republican admits Palin not Qualified

    See:

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080918/...FlbQ9.VHys0NUE

    Reads:

    WASHINGTON - Nebraska Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel said his party's vice presidential nominee, Sarah Palin, lacks foreign policy experience and called it a "stretch" to say she's qualified to be president.
    "She doesn't have any foreign policy credentials," Hagel said in an interview published Thursday by the Omaha World-Herald. "You get a passport for the first time in your life last year? I mean, I don't know what you can say. You can't say anything."

    Could Palin lead the country if GOP presidential nominee John McCain could not?

    "I think it's a stretch to, in any way, to say that she's got the experience to be president of the United States," Hagel said.

    McCain and other Republicans have defended Palin's qualifications, citing Alaska's proximity to Russia. Palin told ABC News, "They're our next-door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska."

    Hagel took issue with that argument. "I think they ought to be just honest about it and stop the nonsense about, 'I look out my window and I see Russia and so therefore I know something about Russia,'" he said. "That kind of thing is insulting to the American people."

    Hagel, a senior member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has been a vocal critic of the Bush administration since the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

    In July, Hagel traveled to Iraq and Afghanistan with Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. Though he didn't expect to be asked, Hagel had said he would have considered serving as Obama's running mate.

    Palin was mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, population 6,500, before becoming Alaska's governor in December 2006.

    Palin visited soldiers in Kuwait and Germany last year and said in an interview with ABC News that her only other foreign travel had been to Mexico and Canada. She also said she had never met a foreign head of state.

    Hagel told the newspaper that other governors have been elected to serve in the White House without experience in Washington. He said judgment and character were also important for the job.

    "But I do think in a world that is so complicated, so interconnected and so combustible, you really got to have some people in charge that have some sense of the bigger scope of the world," Hagel said. "I think that's just a requirement."

    She spun her way out that (ABC) Charlie Gibson Bush Doctrine question and again yesterday at a townhall meeting. What a soft interview (FOX) Sean Insanity gave so far, hopefully he'll get a little tougher in the next segment that airs but don't count on it. Does anyone believe FOX is fair and balanced? Just watch Fox & Friends for a few mornings and see what the lead story always is and what it's not.

    When some were pushing Guliani I said no way he's an amateur, he went far, l say the same for Palin she's an amateur. If McCain/Palin get elected, my prediction, two or three years from we'll be hearing things like "he regrets picking her" she's difficult to work with", "she's too stubbon" A mule with lipstick if you will.

    Do not let the GOP trash this economy any more than they already have.

    Well i'd say Fox is fair and balanced

    Fair - as in mediocre, not of high quality
    Balanced - they offend equally by their commentary programs and their news reports

    Default Heyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

    "Key Republican admits Palin not Qualified"

    I thought you all thought all Republicans are liars, lol. Kidding on that.

    I like her; I would love to see some tough female like Palin in a high position like that.

    I am voting for Brad Sherman, a Democrat in his next election, He is a good Rep for my city even though I disagree with him on more than a few of his stances, overall I do like him.

    As far as Palin, I volunteered for her and McCain, I think she is great. Maybe I have a soft spot for kids with special needs, I don’t know, but I think she is a straight shooter and a strong woman like her is what we need, that’s why I made 678 phone calls so far for that ticket.

    Nevertheless, that is why this country is great, we can all value each other’s opines without it get ugly.

    Important thing for Americans is to get out in a peaceful and respectful manor in November and vote for our own choices

    Well Bud, i don't agree with you on Sarah Palin, but i understand why people like her.

    She's new, different and has style of speaking that is different from what we're all used to. Unfortunately she seems to run things like **** Cheney, with personal attacks, harrassment by her husband and staff and firing people who aren't political allies. Well i've seen 8 years of that crap and i'm not going to settle for another 4 years of this BS.

    Bleuze?
    Chuck Hagel is a Republican in name only?

    Lets see, Bush/Cheney ran up more debt, spent more money he didnt have than any administration in history, violated the entire nation's privacy/constitutional rights. Now they're spendin $600 Billion bailing out Wall Street

    Sorry it's the facists in power today, Bush/Cheney who are republicans in name only. Real republicans believe in personal freedom, personal responsibility and fiscal responsibility. Bush/Cheny have failed in all categories.

    I'm happy to see that some republicans are being real about thier opinion of Palin and not be so blind sighted by her.

    She sais that she will fight for people with special needs, but here is a link to what she has cut funding for and The SPECIAL OLYMPICS and pregnant teens are on the list. Google Search

    - Palin cut funding for Alaska Special Olympics.
    - Palin Blocked Funds To Help Teenage Mothers
    - Palin Cut Funding for Rape Victim Medical Exams

    Default I for one am dissapointed.

    If McCain gets in, do you know how many Americans are going to feel slighted, short changed and left out, just about the same amount of McCain backers that will feel that way if Obama gets in.

    The truth is and I'm afraid to say it is the truth, government has been way to bias, for them its party before the people , thats not only wrong, but it is on both sides.

    I have read in here about her being and saying nasty things, I havent seen one nasty thing by a McCain supporter in this post say anything nasty..

    Leave the nasty things out for a moment,cant anyone say they dont like her or Bidon or OB or Mc , because of a bill they didnt or did sign and not because of some silly talking point.

    I think I made a valid point when I said the guy who ran Fannie May was put there by Clinton and that he gave OB a lot of campaign mony, the 2nd largest amount he gave anyone. It was not said in a mean way, it is just a fact. I just dont get why people arent offened by that, instead on the news there are rummers that her down syndrom child is her daughters, the book thing was disproved by some of the libral main stream media now and still its talked about like shes a female Hilter

    I dont know, i vote for Dems, Reps and Libertarians when I vote, I vote for people. Not party.

    I honestly think people dont like her because she is not what people who do not like conservitives think a consev. woman she be. or is it because she refused to abort a child with DS. To me thats walkin the talk and for that I give her a hell of a lot of credit.

    I would like to know if it was ok for OB to accept all of that Fannie May money. Why isnt Charlie Gibson talking about that.

    She can walk anyway that SHE wants to. I just want the CHOICE to walk the way I want to.

    Amen, and you know what, thats what I want too. It's just kind of hard for me sometimes because many off the members in here seem to think because someone goes to a Christian Chuch and we hold on to consevitive values that we are all Republican Right Wing Extremists that are destroying OUR country.

    You dont think Im sick of left wing people telling me I cant have a gun for protection, or I have to feel guilty when I say Merry Christmas. Guess what , it works both ways. I dont like being told by people what I can or cant do either

    "Real republicans believe in personal freedom, personal responsibility and fiscal responsibility."

    AMCAn, you are right on that one , well said, well put and well done. I appreaciate you saying that, thank you......................
