    Democrats would give their left nut to have Palin get the nomination.

    Established the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform is just so damn laughable.

    Perhaps instead of establishing a commission of fiscal responsibility he should practice some fiscal responsibility.

    If you just take appropriations that Obama requested and he signed and also add the $350 billion of the TARP funds that was left for his administration. This eliminates every single item in the FY2009 budget submitted by Bush. You are going to see that everything that Obama has done has thus far added a total

    of $3,115,001,933,479.20 (read this as $3.1 TRILLION) and the Idiot in Chief has not even completed his first Fiscal Year.

    Are you even remotely aware that this is more than Bush added in his first 4 years, not just a little bit, it is almost $1 trillion more than Bush added in 4 years.

    If Sarah decides to run, I will send her my spreadsheet so she can see for herself, you can take a peek yourself if you wish.


    Just look at the second spreadsheet, the first one shows spending based on the day Obama was "SUPPOSED" to take responsibility, something all of America is still waiting for him to do.

    I also want to mention, that 85% of TARP funds that have been repaid. You might want to correct yourself. The banks repaid $210 billion, Bush lent the money to the banks. At present Obama (actually Turbo Timmy) created P-PIP, Private-Public Investment Program and $250 billion of the TARP funds were to go into that program to purchase toxic assets of the failed financial institutions.

    So far this program has been put on hold and the money has not yet been spent.

    Now, the funds that were repaid, where the hell did that money go? I know where the interest went, it went to a pet program of Barny Frank, thanks to the liberals.

    This repaid money and the interest should have been used to pay down the national debt. Have not seen any huge payments broadcast in the news in this regards, have you?

    She won't even win the nomination. She was a liability in 2000, so there's no way she's in in '12. Not even the majority of teabaggers want her as Prez. The only political power she has, (which is considerable), is nerve. Anyone with the ability to write crib notes and get caught, and not be embarrassed about it is either incredibly nervy, an imbecile, or both. Anyone caught cribbing in an exam room in any school, would fail the test, or in a higher level, thrown out of school. Period.

    But the teabaggers are completely untroubled that the person they consider such a wonderful leader, can't even remember core conservative values - she has to write them on her palm. Any observant person would find this troubling.

    Possibly. If they can talk enough states into going back to those Diebold voting machines without a paper trail. You notice that the Republicans victories seem to be pretty rare without those machines.

    EDIT": For @liberals r morons...We weren't asking about a baboon. Most baboons would be smarter than Palin, so that would still leave her in a world of hurt in an election against Obama.

    "here is a list of what Obama has done"

    Ok. But what on that list is any good? I mean, what is and will be the consequences of his actions?

    For example:

    "Found $20 Billion in budget cuts"

    Ok, but he has raised spending by trillions. And you dont mention if he cut that 20 billion in spending. You only say that he found it. Assuming he cut that 20 billion in one part of the budget, he turned around and spent hundreds of billions more elsewhere. So that 20 billion in savings was wiped out and then some.

    Sarah Plain would probably want to make God her vice president. Might as well add kermit the frog and edward the vampire so we can have some more imaginary characters on board.
