Standing at White House podium, Obama spokesman mocks Republican Palin's hand notes
http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/breakingnews/Standing-at-White-House-podium-Obama-spokesman-mocks-Republican-Palins-hand-notes.html
WASHINGTON - Even the White House's top spokesman is getting in on the act of mocking former Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin for looking to talking points written on her palm during a political speech.
In her speech she mocked Obama's use of teleprompters

Like baby Bush never used a teleprompter? What is it with the Republican party (some not all members) these days in that they have to mock and bully at every turn? Could lack of a decent platform be the reason?

And all these factions? Even the Tea Party set is at odds with each other.

Palin is just doing what she'd did in high school and that's all...and what's funny about her is that she get's attention no matter where she goes and or what she does and...

And what I truly suspect the reps are doing is they are trying to groom her for an eventual run at the presidency and split the vote in 3yrs between the color and female votes...and...

And then 4rs from there in the following election because the reps and I suspect the next president in the US will be a female and one way or the other Hilary will be running soon after Obama is done...and...

And because by that time the US will finally be ready to have a female president...and...

And right now the reps have no one up and coming to say the least a female amongst their ranks to take a crack at the presidency other than perhaps Palin herself...GGF

Just saw on the news yesterday that her grandson's 19 year old father posed nude for playgirl. Can't be good publicity for Sarah and her family.

There is no such thing as bad publicity!

Why would that have anything to do with her family? The 19 year old who knocked up her daughter is not part of her family...he is the guy who knocked her daughter up.

Unfortunately, as Miz P pointed out, by "knocking up" her daughter, he can now be "affiliated" with the Palin's and the media will exploit anything they can to make it newsworthy. That is just the way our world works.

Like the old rub goes......what if FDR were to run now for President whilst in a wheelchair? Would he still get elected?

What we follow or believe in terms of how we gage the efficacy of candidate has radically changed since FDR's time. There seems to be this moral high ground as used by the "right" against their opponents but heaven forbid if the fingers of moral outrage are pointed back.

I see lots of regression and little progression in our political landscape. Shame.

I agree...and...

And the problem with the reps and mainly as a result of baby bush is that they didn't see the female, color vote coming and that is because their heads were so deep in the sand with baby bush himself and some of their other reps religious shanaggins etc in the deep south instead...and now the reps have nothing up and coming other than Palin herself...GGF

Once upon a time, those days are over.
Decaying Morals, Easy divorce, Femminism's second and third waves, both parents working, all combined have slowly destroyed the family unit.
I sit back and think of a better time.

Everybody pulled his weight Gee, our old LaSalle (a car) ran great. Those were the days! And you knew where you were then! Girls were girls and men were men. Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again. People seemed to be content. Fifty dollars paid the rent. Freaks were in a circus tent. Those were the days! Take a little Sunday spin, go to watch the Dodgers win. Have yourself a dandy day that cost you under a fin (five dollar bill). Hair was short and skirts were long. Kate Smith really sold a song. I don't know just what went wrong! Those Were the Days!"

You know that some old timers, not JTF or BOM, think everything was better "back then"!
Bullcrap- nothing changes except we have more medical advances that allow us to stay alive longer, and in pain.
1/2 the couples today don't bother getting married , and of the other 1/2 , 1/2 are waiting for their children to die before they get divorced, or simply move away!
Politicians continue to lie before , during and after they get elected or don't get elected. They of cours all want things to be open to the public! More Bullcrap!
The media twists and turns the story, so we know very little of the truth, and we accept that all politicians are in it for the personal gain and yet we pay them very little, but they get big compensation if they manage to serve us 10 years?

She said that she won't be running for President.

I know there are some Palin fans here in the Sandbox. Must be disappointing news for them.
