Never Answer a Hypothetical

Say you're conservative. It's 2012 and the primaries have narrowed down to two candidates: Sarah Palin and Condoleeza Rice. Who gets your vote?


GWK said...

With BO taking this election, and completely running the US head-first into the ground, and assuming there still is a "US" in 2012 worth voting for, I'd pick Condi as Prez, and Palin as VP.

Danielk said...

Catastrophic thinking, but sensible. What if McCain wins but chooses to not run for a second term?

GWK said...

You know as well as we do,Piker, that unless BO commits some major gaffe, or unless people say they are voting for him, and when alone in the booth, choose McCain when it's go-time to "puch the ballot", that BO will win.

And the USA, as we know it, will cease to exist.

The MSM is makiing complete sure of that, giving BO a free pass on EVERYTHING, and sqewering McCain / Palin every chance they get.

Danielk said...

I was going to say I wish I had your confidence, but I guess more accurately, I wish I had your lack of confidence in McCain and his people.

Still, it's a hypothetical. Things are rosy, the middle east in in line, the economy is strong. Palin or Rice?

GWK said...

Instead of hypothetical BS, how about reality??

When BO, who will by then head up the party who got us in this $700b hole of CORRUPTION by allowing Fannie & Freddie to run free while BO's cronies made multi-millions, takes office, will raise taxes by $1 TRILLION to cover everything he's promised everyone, how much money will be left in YOUR pocket?

Got that can of Campbells soup handy? We're ALL gonna need one.

Danielk said...

That's not hypothetical?

GWK said...

Well, to the 1st part of my comment, I respond with: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRmB93McZeI

To the 2nd part of my comment, I respond with this: http://voices.washingtonpost.com/fact-checker/2008/10/obamas_trillion_dollar_spendin.html which states "Obama is proposing net spending increases of around $292 billion a year, or more than $1 trillion over four years."

To the 3rd part of my comment, I reference this: http://keepinitrealyo.blogspot.com/2008/09/silver-lining-silver-certificates.html

Hypothetical or reality?

Danielk said...

Can't comment on the videos until later. For the 3rd point I'll say yeah, it's hypothetical; but it's not immediately preceeded with the phrase "Instead of hypothetical BS, how about reality??"

Matthew said...

palin will drift into obscurity much like casper van dien after his rise as tarzan and that guy in that verhoeven film. so i vote condi...i like rice anyway. is this answer too vague and silly?

Danielk said...

No more vague or silly than actual politics baby.

Danielk said...

If GWK ever comes back:

I can't watch that first video again... it blames Clinton for the market crash and is cut so fast it gives me a headache - I think they're trying to hypnotize me.

The second link also says this: "Even allowing for this disagreement, it is nevertheless clear that neither the Obama plan, nor the McCain plan, will put the country back on the path to fiscal health." Which is understandable. No reason to not vote for either, eh?

BTW, I wonder if a decreased military presence in Iraq will help tighten government spending?
