    Obama supporters are really funny.Palin will be president if she runs in 2012. One thing President and First Lady Michelle Obama can't do is relate to the common man Sarah can. It's not surprising that the left is attacking her calling her White Trash, Sarah is the new Bush you have to attack her same on you left wing radicals. In about three years when Sarah Palin is our President you can all cry in to your "hope T-shirts" as the Obama's go away

    PULEEEZZZ!! lets tell some truth.............The Bush people handed Obama some of the worst problems imaginable. He is doing what he can to straighten out the mess..
    ___________

    Just another lib twisting the truth. Bush had an unemployment average of 5.4% compared to Clinton at 5.6%. Which is better?

    Congress had a chance to fix Fannie and Freddie in 2003, 2004 and 2006. Frank and the Dems refused to do so because Frank wanted to "roll the dice". That was the beginning of the "worst problem imaginable". Obama was right there (voting present) watching it unfold with the rest of them.

    Sarah Palin playing her fan base for a "fool". It's about money. She does not represent America and she's playing a dangerous game. She's the shadow of Karl Rove, play on the weak voters. Voters who can't think for themselves, voters who are fearful, voters who have no education. Palin is a fake, phony, and false politician.

    Hang in there, libs. You haven't seen anything yet. Sarah Palin is going to blow right by Ron Paul like a tornado in the desert, and the Dems will look like stunned nomads. You betcha!

    Conservative Republicans AND Democrats are behind the Tea Party movement.....which is something you liberals fail to realize.

    Liberals represent less than 20% of the population (and 99% of these ignorant posts).

    They are the fringe that America rejects time and time again. Obama will be done in 2012, just like Carter.

    The people really need to read more news, and from other sources.. Tea Party movement is about three things:
    1) Smaller Government
    2) No deficit spending
    3) Return to the Constitution
    If there's any hate signs at a Tea Party Rally, they're directed at Corrupt politicians in both Parties in this administration. Both parties suck and are lying to us. If people who adhere to the Constitution are right-wing extremists, then lump me with Washington, Jefferson and Madison. We the Independents outnumber either party.

    Scott : First you ask who Ron Paul is and THEN you say he got only 2% of the vote. Which is it? If you don't know about Ron Paul, google him. If your from Texas (why do you think TEXAS is so great?) how would you know what anyone from any other state thinks?

    Selena :, You voted for Hillary in your state's PRIMARY!! Honey there is another more important election after that one. Did you vote in that one and for WHOM?

    Sarah the Quitter is the perfect person to speak to that collection of Birthers, Deathers, and Tenthers. She can FINALLY be the smartest person in the room.

    Why is it that the media is covering sarah palin at all? This is a woman who couldnt even finish her term as governor of alaska...Yet the media keeps her in the spotlight WHY? Less than one year after a new president took office all the media can do is speculate on whether or not this lady will run for office in 2012 ...All that needs to happen is the media needs to stop making her facebook updates primetime news....what has this lady done to deserve all this attention
    every time this lady is in the news for nonsense reasons we need to be sending emails asking why this is of national importance....

    Imagine Michelle Obama's power-play (?) She will be the first woman president of the united States of America. The White House was built just for her...

    To all American Liberals:

    Your diatribe on all blogs and posts for the past two years against Ms. Palin reveals how afraid you are of losing the one thing that truly excites you: Power over the masses in the USA.

    Here's some advice for you: Be afraid; Be very afraid of losing power as one day an Independent party will rule and the slow but sure erosion of our Constitution will end and sanity will once again reign..

    If Palin wasn't attractive, conservatives wouldn't care about her. The only women with any success in the conservative world are at least marginally attractive. At least physically. Once they talk, they tend to be empty headed.

    Scott:

    President Obama when elected was much more experienced than Palin.
    ___________________

    Spoken like someone who hasn't followed Obama throughout his career. He did NOTHING here in Illinois. Even when he had a chance to vote, he voted "present". He never wrote legislation, he might have put his name on a few, but he didn't write a single bill.

    Having said that, he WAS NEVER QUALIFIED FOR THE US SENATE.
    He got the seat because on the Chicago political machine backed him. Now he's president? What a joke.

    At the very least Palin was a Governor, which is very similar to the President's.

    r To all the far lefters still To all the far lefters bashing Palin. I guess the honeymoon is over with your boy in Washington and you now see how little of what he promised you is going to be delivered. Therefor there doesn't seem to be much in the positive light for you to extol to the rest of us so you obviously have lots of extra time to beat on Palin. The fact is that the DNC is scared sh**less of what will happen to the female vote that they have counted on for so long, if a woman outside their party becomes extremely popular with that segment of voters. And as for the comment trailer park trash,I would love to run her resume beside that of the poster on tonight's national news for all to see. It would probably beat out all othecomedy shows for the night at Nielsen

    What the heck is it with all you people? Why do you all hate someone you have never met? You disgust me. Palin has done nothing to anyone of you personally so why do you all have to call her names and show your ignorance? She has proven she is a force to reckon with and will continue to be, but you all seem to think you can destroy her with your venom and name calling and continue to stoop to childish levels and expose your IQ's every time you write your comments here. Get used to it, she is here to stay. She is powerful, smart, attractive and in demand. Jealousy is a very ugly trait. And the way I see it, you all have a very big problem with being jealous of her. That is the only logical explanation. And it's pathetic. As far as her being a leader of this country, I have no doubt she would have a bigger set of b-s than anyone in the present administration.

    the democrats set on their azz's, while as soon as a democrat says he running for office the repubs find away to dig up dirt and skeletons in his/her closet..... its called opposition research files... you best believe that hannity , the drudge report, and the serpent behind the gold mic.... will find something to disparage you. i know that the woman [palin] who can see russia and putin from her back yard has alot lot of bones in her closet and is just as crooked as a barrel of snakes.... but the democrats are fake and refuse to see its eye for an eye...... somebody needs to open the books on these republicans..

    Rob in NC.....The Tea Party loves an America that doesn't exist anymore, and never really did. Sarah lives in her own world.
    ___________________

    That's actually the point of the movement. This ISN"T America anymore. Which means the greatness is gone, unless this party succeeds.....or we vote out all libs in 2010 and replace them with conservative Republicans and Democrats.....like we did after Carter.

    This country made a huge mistake voting in these Liberals, like Obama, Reid and Pelosi. The voters will correct that mistake soon.

    Where is the text version of this story? This was not advertised as a video on the front page of the site. Seems like it's too easy for you guys to throw up a video and not so easy to do a bit of real written journalism.

    Why does CNN continue to stretch 4:3 content to fit its 16:9 player? Can you please either:
    1. Add black horizontal bars to each side of the picture to correct the aspect ratio
    2. Get a source of 16:9 instead of 4:3

    Stretching 4:3 content to fit a 16:9 display does not mean it's HDTV. While I expect this from a Mom & Pop pub, I do not expect this from an international MEDIA company.

    Silly Sarah probably thinks the tea party is a breakfast buffet. Right wing airheads united for the purpose of peddling a cause that will negatively impact their own lives.

    Scott: You are right on the money. You and Sarah represent the best and the brightest this country has to offer. Now, if we can just get people to believe the world is flat, and Santa Claus really does exist.

    Thanks for the break from Palin stories for a couple of weeks. The libertards have been lost with out someone to spew their viscious hatred on. As you can tell they are sexist and racist and just plain mean. I must be all the dope they smoke.

  25. Jane! Jane! Get me off this crazy thing!

    Please, Republicans. Please, pretty please, don't do this.

    I have voted GOP all my life, but we have to get off this Sarah Palin thing. This would simply should not be President of the United States. She's not serious enough person for the office and she's not ready for the big time. And if she's nominated, she will NOT win against a smooth talker like Obama who has the with the media-winds at his back. And we, in our blindness, in our admiration for a woman who walks her pro-life talk but who doesn't bring ANYTHING else to the table, will have secured Obama's second term.

    Please, spare us this. Find someone else to pour your energies into. This is the deadest end we've ever contemplated as a poltical party and its scaring the piss out of me.
