See?

He could put an end to all this crap if he gave his friends, relatives and associates permission to speak to the media and he sat down to answer all the questions about him.

Real problem is that if we were to "lose" Obama.........Biden is an even worse choice....he's an absolute moron.

To use a metaphor, imagine we are the teen children of a mother who has fallen in love with a Haitian man with track marks on his arms, 'exotic' ways and effeminate mannerisms who seems good and kind but who refuses to reveal to her his entire background.

Our home was going into foreclosure before she met him but now things are looking much more hopeful.

We know our mother is better off financially, emotionally and physically being married to this hard working man but what she doesn't know about him could literally kill her.

What to do?

What to do??

Dick Cheney pointed out on Fox News Sunday that Biden is a longtime chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and professor of constitutional law and thinks that Article One of the Constitution applies to the Executive branch. But Biden should know that Article One applies to the legislative branch.

Give Palin 3 years and she will be as well versed on foreign policy matters as Biden but her judgment will be better.

And she already has more and better executive experience and has managed a billion dollar budget and thousands of employees and negotiated against Big Oil and bucked her own party to make ethics reforms.

Biden?

Not.

Biden has hair plugs a sad story and a penchant for putting his foot in his mouth.

'Let's give Iran $200 Million so they will like us.'

Biden has said that he believes you have dangerously expansive views of executive power.

CHENEY: Well, I just fundamentally disagree with him. He also said that the all the powers and responsibilities of the executive branch are laid out in Article 1 of the Constitution. Well, they're not. Article 1 of the Constitution is the one on the legislative branch.

Joe's been chairman of the Judiciary Committee, a member of the Judiciary Committee in the Senate, for 36 years, teaches constitutional law back in Delaware, and can't keep straight which article of the Constitution provides for the legislature and which provides for the executive.

So I think I write that off as campaign rhetoric. I don't take it seriously. And if he wants to diminish the office of vice president, that's obviously his call.

I have already pointed out that "Executive Experience" Doesn't mean anything. The heads of the big 3 auto makers have executive experience. So does the CEO's of all the banking institutions that have been failing, Geez I can go on and on about how little executive experience means. I have many more years of real life experience then Palin. So what? The rest of what you wrote sounds like you work for her. And the fact that you think I should wait 3 years until she has more foriegn policy experience. Why? Are you waiting for Palin to get more education because you can't wait to vote for her? Aren't there any other qualified republicans in America? Or do you need to train one? And as far as hair plugs go. So what? The guy wanted to try to look younger. I wish I had a nickle for everyone who has done some kind of cosmetic changes to them selves to look younger. I don't know if Palins tits are real. But it doesn't make her any better as POTUS either way. The only reason the far right likes Palin is because they love Bumper sticker politics. Don't give them anything deep to consider. If it doesn't fit on a bumper sticker its way over their heads.
