Palin needs to drop out or quit before she sinks John McCain. Not that McCain needs any help in destroying himself.

Again, for those that think that polics has nothing to do with stocks. I say you are an idiot, who should not buy individual stocks.

The WAR is still the biggest issue affecting the markets and the dollar IMHO. It is something you should address before buying any stock.

Jack Cafferty Tells Us How He Really Feels About Sarah Palin

  

Will this instill confidence in the US? Weak "leadership" like this is what brings about dictators and domestic turmoil.

I used to like Sarah Palin, but if Matt Damon doesn't like her then that's enough to convince me.

Ares, my man, wake up and smell the gulag! We the United States of Rhetoric are closest to Fascism than we've ever been. Relax, enjoy the stimulus your Kommissars grant you in the educational form of Bill O'Really, Mary "Don't Put Me In Your Shoes!" Matalin, Sean "Non-Sequitor-to-Democrat-Bashing" Hannity, and Fixed News -- may Allah praise their name!

When people fall asleep or go on "auto-pilot" and swallow every piece of tripe their politicians, church/moral/civic leaders and elected officials throw their way without mentally engaging those assertions, asking what is it this person stands to gain from the conversion of me to his argument, well, then you get 21st Century King George and His Cronies. All hail, King George! He says he's Christian, and that's good enough for me. He'd be a fun one to have around for a joke and a beer, and that's good enough for me. Nevermind his consistent failure in every business he'd ever run. Nevermind his simpleton affectations. He's just like us, and we'd never want to elect anyone who's smarter or more experienced than we are, heavens no!

It's been a long time coming, after we revolted under one King George 232 years ago, only to be swallowed whole like a pack of mindless sheep by another King George's dominion.

Lest we forget the definition of Fascism, Webster's reminds us it is this: a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.

Dumbya and Cheney, Rove and Rumsfeld may not have been dictators, but with a complicit Congress dutifully rubber-stamping their every action for 6 of the last 8 years, no matter how outrageous: wire-tapping, torture, ignoring subpoenas, flouting and routing of many laws, "executive privilege" broadened to cover just about anything from peons in the Administration to Rove farting, treasonous events like the leaking of a CIA operative's name purely for motives of political revenge.

How dare you question the President! -- you are not patriotic.
How dare you question the War! -- you are not patriotic.
How dare you question blank checks to Wall Street! -- We are so much smarter than your idiotic self.
Deregulation is good because we say it is! -- do not question us further, imbecile, or we will take your gruel away.

The incessent drumming of Talking Points by this Administration and its water carriers (including a high profile network of TV and radio stations) pretty much qualifies for "severe economic and social regimentation" in my book. The "suppression of the opposition" started in the 2000 election when Republicans rushed down to Florida en masse to shut down the recount program and Katherine Harris (Republican Secretary of State for Florida) attempted to squash and/or hurry the process, finally culminating in the Supreme Court voting down party lines to give Dumbya the Presidency, even though Gore won the popular vote. The consolidation of powers under the President's office continued with the Patriot Act, rescendance of habeus corpus, refusal to play by the already-established FISA court rules for wire-tapping warrants, all the way to the political firings of US Attorneys in the Justice Department because it "appeared" they were not of the same "political philosophy"...

We've come a long way towards reaching the goal of the Right and its sheep: one party, one country, one mind. Celebrate and rejoice, for Thy Kingdom is at hand, sir!

The sooner we vote this Party out of office, the sooner we'll get a chance to start repairing the damage. Give the less-competent at lying, stealing, embezzling and cheating a chance, I say!  At least it'll buy us some time before they get as corrupt and singularly-focused as the current Administration is...

BTW, speaking of torture, did you notice in the Presidential debate on Friday night that McCain finally admitted the USA participated in those torture, despite all claims by him & Bush to the contrary? Yep, toward the end of the debate, McCain said: "And we've got to -- to make sure that we have people who are trained interrogators so that we don't ever torture a prisoner ever again." Again, Senator? Nice slip of the tongue, Mr. McCain.

awallejr,

You do realize, the Republicans and Democrats are the same, outside of the rhetoric.
