Are you all aware of the EDUCATIONAL Backgrounds of our Presidential Canidates? Please read this information before you respond since so many get offended by remarks about McCain/Palin but are so quick to remark on FALSE info about Obama's faith! Do your homework people. This election is important to all our futures! God Bless.

Just so you know Palin Never completed a degree in college...only semesters! McCain only went to Military school! Education isn't everything but that's like saying a high school drop out should be able to run for president.

  • "McCain graduated from the Naval Academy in June 1958; he was fifth from the bottom in class rank, 894th out of 899."

    I'm an Obama supporter, but the Naval Academy is actually a very respected and good college. It's very very difficult to graduate from there.

    That being said...fifth from the bottom? Oh...god. I guess someone has to be at the bottom, right?

  • bull people are quick to jump and make accusations and make remarks on both sides of the political party, so this whole post was just to get people fired up over what you believe

  • Yay! Another post bashing McCain and Palin. And full of inaccurate, opinionated "information" at that. Should I point out how many women here you've offended because they don't hold college degrees and have simply worked their lowly way up from the bottom?

    I'll have to remember you mocking their lack of education as compared to Obama the next time I see a Dem on this site complaining about attacks on their candidate of choice.

  • Anon, I hope you're not referring to me as the one with "inaccurate information".

    If you can prove that he didn't graduate from the Naval Academy and was 894th in his class, please feel free to prove me wrong.

  • This has been posted about earlier, from my stand point the only thing Obama's education did was teach him how to write a book and speak well. I prefer the college of hard knocks and experience over the degree the supporters of Obama want to elect him based upon.

  • No, cait. Sorry for the confusion--I should have clarified that I was referring to the OP. Palin has a Bachelor's Degree in Communications Journalism from the Univ. of Idaho. And "only" went to Military School is a poor choice of words. As you pointed out, cait, the Naval Academy is a difficult school to get into and graduate from.

    ROFL BTW @ Mommas!

  • I don't think any amount of college is going to take the place of actual experience when it comes being a President, I mean if you take a highly educated individual that is passionate does that make them qualified because they speak well?

  • McCain graduated from Naval Acadmey! You are aware that it is one of the top ranked COLLEGES in the country aren't you? One of the longest running COLLEGE football rivalries is Army vs Navy.
