Thank you for mentioning Obama's record. Put Palin will not run. She really doesn't want to be on a stage with a bunch of Republicans who are not the least bit impressed by her, who will challenge her in ways she has not been challenged for many years. She has a good thing going now: opinion without consequence.
RobertKaydoo: Democrat from Scottsdale, Az here. Palin would be a serious contender had she kept her position as governor of Alaska, and been re-elected. Though I'm no fan of Jan Brewer, our former governor, she dealt with many tough issues during her tenure, and built up the leadership experience Palin is lacking.
This so-called "serious interest" is nothing more than the Caribou Kardashian freshening up the Palin brand. She is to be commended for successfully cashing in on her political celebrity, but she's spent too many years now delivering unchallenged talking points to fawning hosts on Fox News and to adoring crowds unable to pin her down with facts. In the years since she bailed on her governorship there have been a number of real candidates who have either been doing the heavy lifting in tough times (Christie, Walker, Jindal), or have considerably more experience (Romney, Bush). Her ego seems to crave that her base always wonder if she's going to run. She would appear quite inexperienced and decidedly lacking in special qualities if she appeared on the same stage with a host of Republican challengers, all of whom more qualified, and none of whom willing to honor the Fox News bubble in which her current views are showcased.
Never? Here's a list of some of the Democrats recently convicted of corruption: Rod Blagovevich (Gov of Illinois) Kwame Kilpatrick (Mayor of Detroit) Eddie Perez (Mayor of Hartford, CT) William Jefferson (House Rep, Louisiana) Corrupt behavior and the consequences are bipartisan.
The last sentence of the Detroit Free Press article provides some context: "Last year, the Ann Arbor, Mich.-based Center for Automotive Research estimated that the U.S. would have had 2.6 million fewer jobs in 2009 and 1.5 million fewer jobs in 2010 if the two auto companies had disappeared. The study also estimated the government "saved or avoided the loss of" $105 billion in lost taxes and social service expenses, such as food stamps, unemployment benefits and medical care."
According to the following, no exemption exists: http://thehill.com/blogs/congress-blog/healthcare/325201-no-congressional-obamacare-exemptions http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2013/09/27/is-congress-exempt-from-obamacare/2883635/ http://www.factcheck.org/2013/05/congress-and-an-exemption-from-obamacare/ Please provide proof or a link to the contrary. Thank you
Common sense.
To whoever deleted the dreadful Air Force One related comments posted by KYoung43, americanthebeautiful, and Old Vince, as well as my response to theirs -- thank you.

President Obama's Hawaii vacation: Day 7

There was no mention in the printed article regarding the cost of the vacations. My comment addressed the general tone of the posts here, and those that accompany many articles regarding Obama's vacations: that his vacations are somehow not legit, yet those of his Republican predecessors are above reproach.
