    You heard me right....Sarah would make a great POTUS because she is an outsider to the politics of Washington, D.C.

    Sure, she has an awful lot to learn, but, she street smart, and that makes her a "quick study learner." Who among us does not have an awful lot to learn? What first time president ever entered the Oval Office with all the know how and knowledge to run this country. Was Washington really equipped to be anything more than a warrior? He had to learn how to lead men into war under fire, and he had to learn diplomacy while he conducted the business of this country as its President! He learned how to be the leader of the home of the brave, and the land of the free. And he did well...which gives me the faith in God to trust Him to lead her to be a great POTUS, in spite of those rooting for her failure.

    What I admire most about Sarah is her ability to be down-to-earth-genuine, not a DC Phony, and her recent meeting with the family of a five year old Downs Syndrome child [see: http://www.truthorfiction.com/rumors...ipt-family.htm] only demonstrates the quality of her heart. I know it was a great photo op, but, it was an unexpected photo op, and she was able to put her schedule aside to meet and greet that family and give America another look at the woman who could one day be President.

    And while I'm not sure how she'll come across on the debate, I'm believing that God will empower her at her time of need. Many people forget that the Lord can come over anyone of His Children, and with God on her side, I'm positive she will prove the world wrong when it comes to the "Smear and Awe" tactics of the people in this nation who have a genuine "hate" for this Child of God.

    Shalom,

    I am Pastor Paul, and I approve this Post....:laugh:

    Sarah Palin has not exhibited, to date, the knowledge or the mential adroitness necessary to be president of the United States.

    Then how come Dan Quayle did so poorly in his VP debate in 1988?

    Does She Get Under Your Skin?

    It is quite evident that just the mention of Palin gets under your skin. Just the mention of her name brings out your fleshly rancor, and while you are allowed to an opinion, so am I.

    Palin will rise up and be heard. If she repeats the "talking points" of McCain, that is okay, afterall, he is the boss, and she should be behind his lead. Let's share some spiritual popcorn Thursday as we watch her meet rival. It should be a good debate. :wavey:

    I can't help but wonder if her mistakes with Katie were another setup for an ambush on Thursday. If the other side is over confident, they could be taken off their game. That is what McCain did to Obama. There were a lot of rumors that McCain wanted to delay that debate because he was not ready to face Obama, and it appeared that BHO believed the rumors when he became frustrated and taken of the talking points he was prepped to speak on.

    1) I may tape it and have it available to watch later if it seems to be worthwhile. My wife's nephew plays on the high school freshmen football team and they have a home game on Thursday night and I would like to watch him play.

    I have never paid much attention to the VP debates the last few elections. I didn't even watch the 1996 VP debate with Jack Kemp in it whose presidential campaign I worked in as a county chairman back in 1988(I did listen to it on the radio while I worked).

    2) Then it was a poor strategy as Senator Obama won the debate.

    I have to be honest with you. I have backed off of the Sarah Palin threads and I will tell you why.

    This is probably going to rankle some folks from both sides of the issue but it is how I feel and what I believe. Folks keep saying that the biblical principle of women not having authority over men is reserved for the home and the church. But to me this is contradictory. If we wont allow a woman to run a small congregation of Christians in a Baptist Church, then how in the world can we accept a woman to run a whole country full of heathens?

    Are any of the women that hold office or are CEO's in this country Baptist? If there are, I dont know of them. They always seem to be from one of the more liberal denominations.

    Anyway, I think Sarah is a fine person and works hard to be where she is, and I will vote for McCain, but not because of Sarah. I personally think that positions of authority should be held by men, and I believe the Bible teaches this.

    Ok, I am ready....I said it.....let me have it!!!

    AJ

    PS,,,,I think more folks feel this way than are likely to admit it publically because even though I believe it is biblical, it is certainly not politically correct.

    I disagree with your stance toward women in secular positions of authority(I have a woman in authority over me at work two positions up and I have no problem with it); however, I respect where you are at on this issue.

    We have hardly scratched the surface about who Sarah Palin is and yet their are those that would vote for her because she gives them a touchy feel good feeling which is the same reason that others would vote for Obama.

    Me Too!!!

    Ken and I agree on something, and the world hasn't ended...I agree with my
    ajg1959's decision to not support women in charge of churches, and how it may cross over to the running of this "heathen" nation. You go for it aig, I, too, respect your opinion.:wavey:

    Sounds like she would make a great Mother Teresa but I can't see a Potus putting so much focus on kids with special needs with all the other kids and things going on in the nation and abroad. I would think you could give instructions and funding to your department of health and human services then check in once in a while.

    Do you really make kids with special needs one of the responsibilities of the VEEP?

    Maybe someday the Lord will show me that I am in error, but for now it seems like a double standard to seperate our spiritual convictions from our secular ones. I was always taught that all of my convictions should be based on spiritual guidance and biblical truth regardless of what is politically correct.

    Anyway, I dont want to make a huge issue out of this, I just wanted to express my reservations about the prospect of a female president.

    Can't speak for him but Palin don't get under my skin, Palin being VP does.

    This is the point, with Obama it was said Potus doesn't have room for OJT. You seem to be advocating Palin is acceptable because she's a quick study. Obama was top of his Harvard law class so I don't think he's a dummy. He also stood toe to toe with McCain on foreign policy which means he is also a quick study.

    Sure, she might be fine with McCain in office but what happens if he is unable to function. She becomes president and won't have his leadership to follow.

    Of course, that presumes that there are sufficient real men to do the task (see Deborah!). There was only one real man in Britain in the days of the Thatcher government, and that was Maggie herself.

    I agree, and the more you learn the more she seems self seeking to me. I'm not trying to be confrontational but it seems she has abused her position in many self seeking ways to include changing zoning laws to sell a house to the part about "thanks but no thanks" to the bridge. I feel as a Christian we should set the example especially in politics. We need to show the unsaved that being obedient and truthful will lead to blessings from above. It is better so say I got here despite my mistakes than to say I got here by lying about my mistakes. It is better to be truthful and not voted in than to lie to win a single vote.

    As long as Joe Lieberman is alive McCain has someone he would whether have with him on the ticket. I sure hope I'm wrong, but I have this bad feeling that after Nov 4, McCain will pull back his high priced lawyers and let troopergate do what they will with Palin. I just don't trust that guy and don't like that they aren't pushing to resolve her situation. If they are afraid of democratic bias, why not just have the hearings televised to the nation so we all can judge?

    I dont know about Palin, I havent given that much thought, although your idea is interesting.

    But Obama? No telling what McCain's campaign will release or leak in October.

    McCains campaign's sheltering of Palin kind of makes it look like she is not really taken serious politically by McCain, and in fact may just be window dressing.

    Time will tell.
