    Part 1:

    Part 2:


    OK, so we all thought ABC's interview would be rigged in favor of Palin, but it turns out that it's still extremely amusing.

    Highlights:
    - She has enough experience to deal with Russia because she can physically SEE Russia from Alaska. I can see the moon from my backyard. Am I qualified to be an astronaut? lol......
    - She threatened to go to war with Russia over Georgia
    - She has enough national security credentials since she worked on Alaska's energy plan
    - She has no clue what the Bush Doctrine is
    - She talks around most of the questions, never really answering them
    - Her speech therapist has done a good job of correcting her shrill voice

    She is obviously clueless about the world and screws up answering the most basic questions even though she's been extensively coached the last week.

    If she gets into office we're gonna be in deep, deep trouble.

    Thanks for posting this !! I'm amazed at how poorly our Media is at handling investigative/questioning This interview was pathetic, its like the media want her so bad they'll even coach her to help her out cause she's so inadequate for this VP spot. Most of the public though aren't savvy enough to see through all this though !!! DAMN !!!!! We'll be in DEEP DOOODOOO if she gets in office, LOL !!!!

    Once people realize this is not prepared to lead our nation or deal with the issues facing our nation, they will back off the McCain/Palin ticket. Palin might be good enough for gov of a small population state like Alaska, but she is not prepared to lead a nation of over 300 Million Americans.

    Se Si Puede!! Viva Obama/Biden 08

    If Palin is not qualified to be VP, then Obama is certainly not qualified. icon_lol.gif
    Palin is more qualified than Obama on every level, except liberalism.

    It's not about qualifications, it's about with whom you agree politically.

    Wait, what? Watch ANY interview with Obama and you'll notice that he has a clue as to what he's talking about with regards to foreign policy. Watch Palin's interview and you'll notice that she's been cramming rehearsed answers for the last 2 weeks and regurgitating them out rather poorly.

    I think she had flashcards, but her handlers forgot to prepare her for that Bush Doctrine question. She looked like a deer in the headlights -- dazed, confused, and spouting random words. Yes Sarah, just keep your mouth moving, and we won't see how stupid you are.

    She was just like this:



    If McCain is somehow incapacitated, this incompetent, clueless lady will be in command of all our armed forces. She could throw us into WWIII. Aren't you the least bit concerned?

    Palin did well for her first presidential campaign interview. Palin appeared poised while Gibson appeard hostile. I wonder what Obama's first campaign interview was like? She wasn't perfect but she is still more qualified than Obama. He's just had more study time.

    Obama is easily the least qualified of the lot. His selection of Biden was a confession of his own inexperience. Frankly, I'd be more frightened to have someone with no executive experience and a paper thin resume at the helm. If liberals want to make experience the argument, it will only diminish Obama and accentuate McCain's experience. It's a foolish plan of attack in my view.

    I didn't get to see it, but all the people here at work said it was very biased against her... so I'll have to watch it I guess.

    Try to be somewhat rational in ur thoughts. McCain has absolutely
    no executive experience - none, zip, nada.
    Obama graduated at the top of his class at Columbia and at Harvard. At Harvard he was the first black to be the head of the Harvard Law Review. If you know anything about education or the law, you would know that this puts him among the very brightest people in the country. Let's see - Sarah Palin went to the University of Idaho and majored in ?????.
    Obama also was a CONSTITUTIONAL law professor at the University of Chicago. In case you don' know it, that university is one of the most difficult schools to get into and has one of the greatest reputations of any college in the world.
    The man knows the constitution and will defend it. Unlike Bush, McCain and Palin who give it the same respect as they do toilet paper.
    She is a hack. Pure and simple.

    McCains' qualifications? Finished 894 of 896 in his naval class. Crashed 5 planes and was captured. Yep. I feel safe. Uh huh.

    The Palin woman came across like I expected. This woman has no business being Vice President.

    OMG she didn't have a clue about the Bush doctrine.. it was pathetic!

    I only saw snippets of the interview on BBC. The question she was asked about whether she felt confident and ready to lead the country seemed to me a bit lame. I mean what is she realistically going to say. "No but I will give it the old college try".

    Neither Palin or Obama have in-depth experience, but McCain and Biden do. I think it is a bit much when people complain (especially Republicans) about a candidates lack of experience, considering what the current incumbents experience was entering the White House in 2001. He had virtually zero experience in foreign affairs, and it showed almost immediately.

    He wasn't hostile. He was just visibly annoyed that he was asking basic questions about the state of the world yet she acted clueless.

    I think it's very sad that I could've responded better to the interview questions than a VP candidate.

    She doesn't have time to become ready if she's in office. If McCain somehow croaks on day 2 in office, she's all we've got, and we'd be screwed. Can you say .. thermonuclear war?

    According to my 17 year old, the ability to attack a country before they attack us. Preventive war, basically. I'm not very intelligent on foreign policy either but it doesn't matter much if neither you nor I don't know. However, I'd like my next VP or potential President to understand a bit more about national security and foreign policy than my 17 year old - but that's just me.

    The deer in headlights moment was priceless!

    Since Oprah won't have her, she should go on The View. Two of the three women would be nice to her. Barbara would eat her up in one bite though.

    She was pretty pathetic, bordering on comical at time with her 'deer in the headlights' reactions to CG's questions. Whenever she had to think about something she seemed to just get confused. I guess he wasn't speaking slow enough for her icon_rolleyes.gif

    No.... I will definately worry if she is to be our next V.P.

    Salon's take was right-on. She really does come across like a beauty pageant contestant answering a question she doesn't understand:

    I hope the McCain/Palin ticket wins just to see all the bitching it will generate on here. The CG interview was conpletely antagonistic and not journalism, she answered as coached or as she as an individual wanted to, CG refused to take her answers and was almost obsessed with undermining any response provided. Its funny how liberal the media is, obsessed with discrediting any platform that doesnt support the self-indulgent, self-destructive theocracy of "the self over the common good". God Bless Sarah Palin for supporting family, the right to arms, and the right to free enterprise.

    Lock and Load Ms. Palin. Boo Ya!

    Remember, this is the same puppet who on July 31st, needed to ask what exactly were the qualifications of the Vice President of the US.

    Apparently you are unaware that the historical role of journalists in relationship to politicians and elected officials has been adversarial. The press supposedly exists as a "fourth estate" to monitor and question the three branches of the government. If anything, Charlie was easy on Sarah by the standards of the pre-Bush era but more aggressive than most have been in recent years.

    I'm not saying your expectation to the contrary is unique but it's an example of how conditioned people have become to a docile press. We expect it now. George Bush and his press secretaries refused for years to take questions from Helen Thomas because of her "impudence." And McCain's surrogate actually told one reporterr that nobody would be interviewing Sarah until the press could treat her with "deference and respect," as if she were royalty who owes nothing to the unruly electorate.
