I am just questioning Palin’s electability.

As long as Palin’s negatives outweight her positives for the majority of Americans, Palin will have a problem as far as presidential campaigns go.

Palin can deliver great speeches but interviews are also very very important and so are debates.

Even in enemy territory namely what passes for the media both in print and visual.

What a stupid remark to make, Juan.

Sarah has more brain power in her little finger than Obama has period.

You can also stop the tactics you used with Bush. They are so overrated.

Palin reply: $15 Trillion in debt.

Governing with borrowed money... you guys are frickin geniuses.

Don’t insult special needs children by comparing them to Obama.

Not only are they more intelligent than Obama, they are also far better people.

I’m not really a “Palin for President” fan, but that’s a totally absurd statement...I see no intellect streaming from obama’s brain into his mouth. All he can do is read speeches from a teleprompter written by someone else. On his own he can barely form a sentence correctly.

Why do so many people conflate the ability to use a smooth voice to read words written by others with intelligence or, for that matter, intelligent goodness

I swear, the Obots really don't care WHAT Obama says or what it actually means; it's only the tone of voice that registers in their consciousness. Obama could give a speech talking about how much he likes to eat live babies while enjoying a glass of red wine, and 30% of the mindless dogs who vote in this country would still support him.

Anybody really listen to King Obama would realize this nitwit has nothing upstairs. He has memorized talking points and likes to appear intelligent. He would not last a hot second against Palin.

"Personally I hope Palin does not run for prez because I think she is much more effective as a cheerleader for conservative candidates all around the country."

Perhaps YOU should tell the starting quarterback to get off the playing field and be a cheerleader?

I suppose that Affirmative Actions stooge Juan Williams would, in fact, find Affirmative Action Stooge Obama to be an intellectual. The fact is, neither of these two have even half the intellectual capacity of my garbageman... We dress them up. We hand them diplomas from Ivy League schools and then we turn them loose on society and watch them make fools of themselves thinking they are “equal.” Its great fun at parties!

Palin can't stand on the intellectual stage with Obama? You aew right Juan. Obama is a better actor than most people Juan. The important thing for you to remember Juan is Obama is nothing but an affirmative action actor who needs a TelePrompter to give him a coherent response to a softball question without the 100 Er's we have to endure when the Teleprompter is off.

What I noticed most about the Dem party was the formation of "groups"...there's a group for everything....NOW, Fags of america, Planned Parenthood....and of course, all seniors should know by now that AARP is just another Dem organization. Then there's the enviro nazi groups, the anti gun groups....etc etc etc

THEN THERE ARE THE BLACKS.....and the COMMUNITY SERVICE GROUPS....AKA...Let's get whiteys' money...

What Juan really means is that she isn’t vapid enough to stand next to 0bama. The average person’s passion for life is far greater than 0bama’s barely-room-temperature-milieu. Like you said, he is no intellectual. He’s an avowed radical, genuine drank-the-koolaid, socialist. In other words, the only sort-of fun he’s liable to engage in is destruction of other people’s dreams. I’d say it’s no wonder the FL looks angry all the time. On the other hand, perhaps that means they’re made for each other. ;) Darned coprophages.

How would Juan Carlos even know?

We're not allowed to see any of his academic records, much less anything else.

He is the only Harvard Law Review president in history who didn't submit an article to the publication he was allegedly presiding over.

Whether or not Obama is smart is questionable, given he will not release his school records. People usually hide things that are shameful. His performance to date does not suggest a huge intellect. Far from it.

Regardless, Obama could never stand on the same ethical & common sense stage as Palin. No contest there at all.

I'll take Sarah over Barry in ANY circumstance!

That Obama is an intellectual is another black nationalist fantasy completely unsupported by evidence from the past or observation of the present. He's an elitist snob with delusions of sufficiency who is completely devoid of any demonstrable talent, except psychopathic bald-faced lying.

Only blacks and sycophantic whites are blind to this obvious fact.

Only one way to find out, Juan. Sarah, or any of our other great lights like Jim DeMint or Mike Pence, would pick apart TOTUS on an intellectual stage or any other.

"There's nobody out there except for Sarah Palin who could absolutely dominate the stage and she can't stand on the intellectual stage with Obama" From FNS

What bonehead liberals like Juan and his fellow travelers fail to understand is "intellectual" prowess falls way down on the scale when people choose leaders.

You can't be a complete dumb ass as well, but rarely do the greatest minds make the greatest leaders

Whatever "intellectual" Obama may have over Palin, (which I doubt) she more than makes up in leadership skills, experience and passion

Juan, like many black guys, humors himself in the belief that blacks are just as smart as white folks ~ jus' that they've had bad luck.

Sorry Juan, the curve is a tad steeper on your side of the tracks, but that doesn't mean there aren't some smart folks out there but the Finns got top position currently and none of them gets a good tan.

Obama is NOT an “African-American” nor does he share anything in his upbringing or life experience with urban black Americans.

I tried to point that out to people before he was elected. He was using what happened to be the color of his skin to get ahead. Something he has done his whole life. And he did this on the backs of people like MLK and others who have a right to bitch about what happened to their ancestors*. Obama does not because as you so rightly pointed out he has no connection to the decendents of slaves. Other than his fathers ancestors selling them or his mother's buying them.

How smart can a guy be when he cannot do the most simple thing a politician can do. And that is give a speech. Obama looks like he is watching a tennis match when he reads the teleprompter. Never trust a man who cannot look at you!

If people want to compare Obama to Palin let's start by comparing her birth certificate and school scores.

Yeah, I think Juan’s statement is completely BS, but on the other hand, I am very worried that this field of candidates we have is not going to be able to beat Obama. Of the bunch we have, it may be Romney who has the best chance, and that’s a Pyrrhic victory, if you ask me.
