    In Cleveland there are Ford plants, Chrysler plants (my other neighbor is a welder) and GM plants. They still have a big presence.

    What the hell was with Palin speed dating all those heads of state today? Nice job, no media access. Once again, what are they afraid of?

    At least Obama met with leaders and talked substance. Palin looked like a moose in headlights. As usual, no substance. :(

    My comment was sarcasm. That is why there was the razz icon after it. Of course a speech before 200,000 Germans doesn't equate to Palin's new earned foreign policy experience.;) But at least now she has probably met with more foreign leaders than Obama ever has. And I'm sure they were with more preconditions than Obama was willing to set to speak to Ahmedinejad, Chavez, Castro, Ill, Asaad, etc (before he flip flopped on that comment of course).:p

    I agree that they still do manufacture cars here but Honda and Toyota make far more cars here then the big three do.

    I have seen F-150's with stickers stating "proudly made in America". I laugh because that specific model is assembled in Mexico.

    McCain crying about the media is going to blow up in his face. Maybe Palin can save the day with all her new foreign policy expertise.

    It seems only the dem VP pick and the repub presidential pick have any foreign experience. But we are arguing about who has the most between people who have little to none.

    You conservative elephants (includes you LAP!:)) need to stop comparing Obama's experience with Palin's.

    In short, here is the difference...The electorate choses the candidate...the candidate chooses the vice-president.

    For a more detailed explanation...

    The fundamental difference here is that the democrats, republicans, and independents selected Obama as the democratic candidate for president. They did this for whatever reasons they determined would make him best represent them as president. They didn't select him because he was the most experienced (whatever that means) candidate! Making the issue of his experience as far as being the nominee moot.

    The electorate had no say in Palin's selection. This was solely the will of John McCain. It is justfiable under these conditions that the electorate vet McCain's vice-presidential pick for the issues they find important. The number one responsibility for the vice-president is the successful continuance of government in the event of the incapacitation of the president.

    You elephants keep desperately trying to compare apples with oranges in comparing Obama's experience with that of Palin. The fact is that McCain picked a minimally experienced person to replace him as president of the United States when there were many other more experienced and qualified individuals within his party. A matter of judgement that each of us must decide upon.

    That certainly is YOUR opinion.

    Judgement...........Obama missed his choice of Hillary.... even Mr. Biden thinks she would have been better.

    APU,

    How much more experience does Obama have and does that vast experience give him a shot at president? And list is his extensive resume which will make him a good president.

    "Despite their political differences, Elliott admits to a bit of a crush on the Alaska governor. He began painting her smile and trademark glasses, he said.......His daughter, who looks a little like Palin and does a great impression of her, served as model for the governor's body."

    Like her or not, his daughter........ seriously? I think that is kinda nasty.......... Ikchhhhhhhhhhh.

    It was actually a take on the Eagles "Desperado". I guess it wasn't that funny anyway.

    Troopergate. Funny how they said what she did was abuse of power, but at least she fired him the right way. Whatever that means.
