    Tony Romo would have a hard time winning any NFL games if he had to do it all by himself. It’s a good thing nobody expects him to do it that way, but it seems a lot of people expect Sarah Palin to run the country all by herself if she and McCain are elected and he doesn’t finish his term.

    Romo not only has the offensive line to protect him, but coaches to help him decide what to do in particular circumstances, as well as a defensive team to clear up any trouble that occurs. A POTUS has a secretary of state, of defense, and of a number of other units to give advise and help. A POTUS is never expected to act alone, any more than Romo is.

    The important thing for Romo is to make good decisions when faced with problems on the field, and to execute the decisions well once they are made. Those things are far more important than his ability to regurgitate every rule in the rule book. Good judgment and a capacity to assimilate and discriminate between good advices from reliable advisors, along with a determination to succeed are the essentials. Tony hears from coaches and wide outs and others before he acts and then decides whether or not to call an audible.

    It’s the same for a POTUS. The POTUS doesn’t need to know the ins and outs of a situation before being faced with it. There are too many possibilities and possible trouble spots to be aware of at once. But it is essential that good advice be available and that good judgment is brought to bear on the problem.

    Sarah Palin has demonstrated good judgment and a determination to succeed in her previous governmental posts. She doesn’t need to know what the state department does in a particular situation now, or what policy China has adopted regarding the Formosa Straights. She’s not making any decisions about it now. If that becomes important later, she’ll know it when it is important. And if her judgment is sound, her lack of knowledge is unimportant until it is time to use judgment.

    All this "gotcha" noise about “readiness” makes less sense regarding her than it does about Obama. She, as VP, will not be immediately called on to make important judgments for the country, but, he, if he is elected, will be. And he has never demonstrated good judgment in an executive position. She has.

    Heck, he never has been in an executive position. And organizing sit ins for the community doesn't count.

    Neither have McCain or Biden.

    So we have...No executive experience for Obama...McCain or Biden.

    But we do for Palin.

    [IMG]...Why don't you put her in charge?


    :D

    Here's the difference. McCAin's experience trumps Obama's. So comparing the Presidential nominees, McCain wins.

    Comparing The Veeps, Palin wins because she at least has executive experience. She wins.

    This doesn't discount Biden's experience in the senate but it does sho that when comparing the tickets, no matter how you match them up, the GOP wins every time. Only a fool wouldn't acknowledge that.

    What's there to say.

    I think your nuts...for the way you think on this subject.

    I'm not EVER going to change that...so I laugh at it.

    Palin isn't qualified to put lipstick on a Pitbull.

    Obviously you have nothing to say about it. YOu go no deeper than the superficial. You seem to think that that baffon obama and his whole 2 years in the senate gives him all the criteria to be president. You would be way better off with Biden and that's not saying allot. At least he is dry behind the ears politically. Obama proves every time he opens his mouth he is a neophyte compared to McCain. But obviously, he is playing to his base.

    Sorry that your McCain beats Obama.

    Palin Beats Biden.

    Forget about Biden's experience because he's not running for President.

    Case closed rhetoric makes me laugh.

    That was hardly deep.

    Obama a neophyte compared to McCain?

    Didn't look that way in the debate and that's not just me saying that.

    But keep your delusional thinking up.

    :laugh2:

    and here...:laugh2:

    Whatever. Like I said in another thread. The American people believe what the news machine says. I think it's obvious that you and others who are voting for this fool have lost the ability to think for yourself. Sad really.
