    During the 2008 presidential campaign, Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin warned that if Senator Barack Obama were elected president, his "indecision" and "moral equivalence" may encourage Russia's Vladimir Putin to invade Ukraine.

    Palin said then:

    After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama's reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia's Putin to invade Ukraine next.

    For those comments, she was mocked by the high-brow Foreign Policy magazine and its editor Blake Hounshell, who now is one of the editors of Politico magazine.

    Romney and Palin are looking like modern-day prophets. FNC had a poll last week that indicated the American electorate, if it had known what we know 15 months later, would have elected Romney president in 2012. Palin should have been is VP.

    Sorry. Romney still looks like a Mormon chameleon.

    And the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue looks like a Marxist dictator. The fact that Romney was right on virtually every warning he gave for reelecting that traitor says to me the American people should have elected him, "Mormon" or not. That's an epithet in this case, right?

    We had a lose/lose choice, in '08 and '12.

    Anyone who would refuse to support Mitt Romney because of his religion is directly responsible for a Marxist dictator sitting in the Oval Office. That's practically treason.

    How about refusing to support a Northeastern liberal chameleon, who changes all of his political "beliefs" in order to run for a national office?

    How about John McCain's treason , where he coauthored a bill restricting freedom of speech, with Madison, WI lib, Russ Feingold?
    When he swore an oath to defend the words: "Congress shall make no law..."? Was it treason to not support the GOP?

    Voting choice, by definition, cannot be treason, and it is not approaching treason, or near treason.
    The Marxist (who I worked hard against in his initial Illinois State Senate run, when the GOP brought in Alan Keyes) was elected because the rulers of the darkness of this world arranged it.
    Truth was ignored, sheeple were conditioned by the attacks against McCarthy, Bill Ayres wasn't put to death, George Soros wasn't prosecuted for breaking national currencies.
    Those were the crimes.
    Writing in Ron Paul is legal.

    Is his where we insert a blind squirrel comment?

    Do we need to list all the other nonsensical things she has said?

    Only if I can use the "find all posts by this user" feature on your profile and list all of the stupid things you've said.

    This is where we acknowledge she was right and understood more than liberals wanted her to have credit for.

    That's the Democrat's characterization of him, done surreptitiously through fake GOP PAC's, and echoed dishonestly by his GOP opponents. And you bought it, apparently. Look at the man's record in Massachusetts, a solidly liberal state. He balanced the budget, and managed to curb their zealotry for a healthcare law so that it didn't cost the state any money. Your rejection of him is not founded in any valid political reasoning. You rejected him, quite clearly per your first comment, because of his religion. Better a Mormon than a communist, which is what we've got now, thanks to your thinking being reflected in a the 10% of conservative voters that could have helped us avoid this pending debacle.
    Proof that you don't do your research. McCain-Feingold was not the bill that finally passed. It was the House conference version, authored by Shays, a Republican, and Meehan, a Democrat. It watered down the McCain-Feingold restrictions on so-called "issue advocacy ads" -- translate: attack ads -- while allowing loopholes for soft money that rendered what the media continued to erroneously call McCain-Feingold useless. Calling McCain a "traitor" is slander of the worst sort.
    The "rulers of darkness" used the naïve and uninformed assumptions of people who refused to vote, where their vote would have kept the Marxist out of office. Live with that one, if you can.

    She is a lightweight of the highest order who deserted those who elected her and was found to have committed ethics violations while governor http://www.adn.com/2008/10/12/553680/palin-says-report-vindicates-her.html

    She made the money grab which is her right, more power to her. But don't get confused thinking she is somehow some intellectual policy wonk who was simply misunderstood.

    So John McCain didn't make every effort to undermine the GOP majority, at every turn, (gang of 14), building a name for himself in the mainstream media, coercing the GOP to tout him as an across the aisle "maverick", and eventually run him as nominee?

    He didn't sponsor McCain-Kennedy either, I guess. I guess that was a conspiracy, too. Poor ole Johnny the Maverick, always so misunderstood.

    Anyone who knows Mormonism, knows why we can't elect one.
    Try living in a Mormon controlled town, in the West, and find out what happens to dissenters.

    Mormonism is a Cult.
    Cults don't believe in individual soul liberty.
    No Cultist Elder belongs in the Whitehouse.

    But you'll keep licking the boots.

    Having a Mormon president is far better than what we currently have.

    So, obviously, you're rather have a communist than a Mormon in the White House. How utterly naïve of you.

    Here's a newsflash for you, Prophet: The White House is a political institution, not a church.
