Why don't people like Palin?

...She is too pretty? She is Conservative? She's from Alaska? She's plain spoken? She's not from the Elite? She's not a Harvard grad? NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!! Just because YOU identify with her doesn't make her THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE for the whole! You may identify w/abortion clinic bombers-should they be Pres? The reason is we midwestern, "humble", hard--working/sahm middle class, some college, not great literary folk take our country seriously and don't want a smartass, who literally cannot name a book/paper she reads (while we read much daily in our regard for the country and world). We can't relate to an American woman who'd rather fly around the country w/nannies (even if their paid family) to help w/her FIVE kids. We can't understand quitting a government duty, because your personal aspirations ($$) are greater than service to country (cha-ching!). She is a bobble head/opportunist FIRST!

  • I think she is awesome too. I don't agree with her a lot but I have to admire her style.

  • I like her. I would have much rathered her become president than the one we have now.

  • Peyote, I agree with you. I certainly wouldn't vote for someone to be President who couldn't even finish her term as governor. And she's such a fake. I sure don't want someone like her to be the first woman president.

  • I agree Peyote. SHe has fooled a lot of people who only see her surface....she is a quitter and an opportunist and a show-biz type. They propped her up to be McCain's Veep ....don't know why....and now she is just out for all she can get: Attention and fame and money. She doesn't care about the America---she only cares about Sarah. As if I would ever vote for an uniformed,narcissitic Hockey Mom. HA.

  • Palin is a joke to anyone with brains enough to "get it".

    Answer by gypsyjewels at 8:38 PM on Nov. 12, 2010

  • Because she is stupid and proves it everytime she opens her mouth! She has no business in politics of any kind!

    Answer by Anonymous at 8:38 PM on Nov. 12, 2010

  • I kinda like her. I don't think she should be anything more politically than she already is. All you have to do is listen to her for a few sentences to know she truly knows little about home-land or foreign policy. She seems to be a great mom.
    If this is really more about supporting Obama then it's another can of worms altogether. Actually if Palin gets a tea party nomination it will be the best thing that can happen for the democrats. When we talk about how smart she is I wonder if she knows this or if there are some really intellegent democrats manipulating the situation. Maybe I'll pose that question myself. Thanks for the idea.

  • I hope you feel better now, op.

  • Then agian, we have Pelosi who thinks that unemployment is the best way to stimulate the economy. If only we could all aspire to be just like her.
