Sarah Palin Has All The Qualities to Be President 2012!
Sarah Palin has already admitted that it would be "absurd" for her not to consider running for President, and many of her supporters at the Tea Party movement's convention in Nashville, Tennessee last Saturday shouted "Run, Sarah, run!"
But does Sarah Palin have what it takes to become President?
Perhaps we can best answer that question by exploring who the American people have elected as leader over recent years.
Let's begin with President Obama; Palin was right in saying that he is a "charismatic guy with a teleprompter". Unfortunately, we have all seen how he goes to pieces when the teleprompter malfunctions. As for his policies, these seem to consist of nothing more than words about "change" and "hope", but very little action.
Then there was George W. Bush who could make a complete mess of any speech, with or without a teleprompter, and who possessed the most annoying smirk of any politician.
Bill (have a cigar) Clinton had a more acceptable style, but his personal life didn't do him any favours as we know.
George Bush's father (read my lips) wasn't much better.
Many of the Presidential candidates who didn't quite make it to the White House were certainly nothing to shout about. John Kerry seemed almost embarrassed about the prospect of beating George Bush and there was talk that the two were related?
More recently there was John (bomb Iran) McCain, who can best be described as a bumbling old fool.
With an adult population of more than 200 million in the United States, you would think it would be an easy task to find someone intelligent to run for President. Yet somehow the most unlikely people are put forward as candidates.
We shouldn't really blame the American people for this, they are forced into voting for a candidate that is pre-selected for them, and the mainstream media only report on these candidates.
A good example of these tactics was seen used against Ron Paul, whose growing support was kept out of the news. His success in polls was rarely mentioned and he never got a fair deal in TV debates.
Clearly, the people who put forward the Presidential candidates do not want someone who cannot be controlled, or a person who has a mind of their own. Almost all of the leading politicians declare undying support for Israel and this is no coincidence.
Even Sarah Palin has stated that Iran should be attacked for Israel, knowing that this is a basic requirement for being considered as a leader.
So, does Palin have what it takes to be a President? She writes notes on her hand to remind herself of what to say, which means she doesn't really have the intelligence to debate a subject without help (sounds familiar), and she doesn't have the courage to challenge for the role without declaring her obedience to Israel.
In view of this, and the media's ability to manipulate voters into voting for the candidate of their choice, I think we can safely say that Sarah Palin has every chance of becoming the next President.
If George Bush can get elected, not once but twice, then pretty much anyone is in with a shout. Maybe Mickey Mouse will consider the position? At least he was born in the United States! "Run, Mickey, run!"
