Sarah Palin’s main problem is her character…..Ya Think?!

The only other governor to reject the federal money was South Carolina's Mark Sanford, who, like Palin, was eying a run for the presidency. His confession Wednesday that he's been cheating on his spouse leaves Palin as the only charismatic Republican whose support of family values seems to fit the facts of her family life. Assuming, as I do, that Palin won't be running for a second term in Alaska, she will almost certainly use her star power to help Republican candidates in 2010. Her help could prove decisive.

But is Palin the party's best bet to overturn the Obama machine and capture the presidency 2012? The conservative-leaning New York Daily News thinks not: "There are a treasure trove of scandals for a Democratic opponent to mine: Troopergate … a wardrobe wracked up on campaign contributions, family travel paid for by tax dollars and the Bridge to Nowhere."

I agree, although the New York paper skirts the real reason for her vulnerability as a presidential candidate. Sarah Palin's problem is her character.

When it comes to letting the public know what her government is doing, Sarah Palin is either a cynical hypocrite or delusional. Either way, it reveals something important about her character

    You are absolutely right! Palin's charachterless personality showed up in full bloom at the RNC.
    I can understand how so many people dislike her. I am definetly one of those people. I see nothing positive about her. Whatever she does or says has a motive and that motiv is how it will help Sarah.
    She deserves a visit from Childrens Services and made to take parenting classes. From her public actions and deeds, she appears to be one of the worst mothers I've seen short of the criminal type.

    Thanks sjohnston for your comments.
    It's not really those in Wasilla so much as those who have their livelihood working in state government. FYI- Over 50% of the people in the AK work for the government. Palin is so whacked that she TRIED to get me FIRED from my position, through a school principal. I work at a local school. I filed a grievance against the principal for harrassment. I won't go into how I was harrassed, it was a pathetic show of the life of a sycophant. BTW, they backed off and conceded to MY demands.

    Syrin, are you a teacher? I am, so I understand that kind of harrassment. Thank God our union guarantees us due process. It seems that everyone is afraid to speak out about her in that town, though. Also, I would like to see a definitive list of all the people who are friends and/or church members that she has hired or appointed as mayor and governor. I think that would be very telling.

    The New York Times reported some names of those that Palin appointed. They were close friends of hers to high-paying government jobs and offered them much higher salaries than they would be entitled to in the private sector. Many of Palin’s political appointees attended Wasilla High School, something which has led observers to note that the school yearbook could serve as a directory of state government. Most have very little if any experience in government.

    One example was a friend of my sister and brother (who both graduated from Wasilla HS with the Palins) was asked to join the team to take over the state of Alaska. He declined the offer mentioning that he had no experience. He has a house painting business.

    Good grief. Most of America doesn't know this. I did see the NY Times list. I think it will be valuable in the future if you or someone in that area started compiling the list along with the job skills (or lack thereof) that each person had when hired or appointed. We need a complete list. I would also like to know how many of the people on the proposed list participate in a NAR affiliated church. I have to say that even though I am a Christian, I am more in favor of separation of church and state than I ever was before. This lunatic, fringe, fake, fundamentalist religion group are pretty terrifying.

    Good grief, Ken! Your sarcastic remark was silly – would you folks who don't like President Obama (your loss, not mine) get your story straight? You would be much better off to just state what you do or don't like, than trying to label someone with words you do not understand and can't make your mind up over. Get over it! Socialist, Commie, Muslim, now Marxist. Give me a break. Just speak your mind and give up the crap that means nothing and just turns folks off – you know, the ones you are trying to talk to? Or are you just typing for your own pleasure and re-reading it over and over to make yourself feel big?And Sarah Palin is the only one who can find any strings attached to anything – she can't explain herself and there is NO ONE who I know in Alaska that understands what she is trying to do, or say, about the energy stimulus funds. So, if you get it – please bring it on and enlighten us all, since she doesn't seem to be able to do that. I had the wonderful pleasure of attending a function where she came to speak two years ago – and you know what? No one understood a thing she said. You should have seen the puzzled and vaguely confused faces in the room.

    Syrin – can't wait until "Governor ICON"(my newest term) is through holding Alaskan's hostage on her Manic Mystery Tour as Governor-Governor In Name Only. Alaskans are givers not takers – Palin is a fraud!
