View Full Version : U.S. Issues Engleburger: Of Course Palin is not Ready.

A former Republican Secretary of State and one of John McCain's most prominent supporters offered a stunningly frank and remarkably bleak assessment of Sarah Palin's capacity to handle the presidency should such a scenario arise.

Lawrence Eagleburger, who served as Secretary of State under George H.W. Bush and whose endorsement is often trumpeted by McCain, said on Thursday that the Alaska governor is not only unprepared to take over the job on a moment's notice but, even after some time in office, would only amount to an "adequate" commander in chief.

"And I devoutly hope that [she] would never be tested," he added for good measure -- referring both to Palin's policy dexterity and the idea of McCain not making it through his time in office. (Listen to audio below.)

The remarks took place during an interview on National Public Radio that was, ironically, billed as "making the case" for a McCain presidency. Asked by the host whether Palin could step in during a time of crisis, Eagleburger reverted to sarcasm before leveling the harsh blow.

"It is a very good question," he said, pausing a few seconds, then adding with a chuckle: "I'm being facetious here. Look, of course not."

Eagleburger explained: "I don't think at the moment she is prepared to take over the reins of the presidency. I can name for you any number of other vice presidents who were not particularly up to it either. So the question, I think, is can she learn and would she be tough enough under the circumstances if she were asked to become president, heaven forbid that that ever takes place?

"Give her some time in the office and I think the answer would be, she will be [pause] adequate. I can't say that she would be a genius in the job. But I think she would be enough to get us through a four year... well I hope not... get us through whatever period of time was necessary. And I devoutly hope that it would never be tested."

The indictment of Palin was all the more biting because both she and McCain have held Eagleburger up repeatedly during the past several weeks as evidence that the Republican ticket has firm standing and support within foreign policy circles. (In fact, McCain conferred with Eagleburger by phone just this week, on matters pertaining to national security.)

An even bigger indictment is the indictment of Obama implicit in this story. Despite his views on the Republican VP nominee, Eagleburger unambiguously endorses McCain.

Mr Eagleburger was being honest about her and compared her to other VP's. Several had to gather experience going in to be ready. I see no problem with this, other than the what if game, if this, if that should happen.

We get Obame right off the bat, What if this happens, or even that. We get a POTUS that has to learn, to make judgment ( there's a scary one with his past known associates) decisions from day one instead of a VPOTUS that gets to watch and learn.

With McCain's age he could die at the drop of a hat. So the pick is increasingly more important than a typical VP pick.

I still don't get what it takes to be "ready" for the Presidency.

The GOP says Obama doesn't have executive experience and that any crisis will be his first crisis IN THE OVAL OFFICE CHAIR.

Seems to me McCain doesn't have any of that experience either and it'd be his first crisis too.

So, please, people, tell me what he needed to be "qualified" or "ready" for the Presidency.

I like Palin.

She came in and energized a base that was already going to vote for McCain and brought a spotlight to some of the head shaking fringe elements of the party.

She also turned off independents big time.

I got a laugh today when McCain had to go off message to answer a question skepticism with his VPs ability to be a potential VP.

She has given Obama a golden ticket in this race.

Or McCain for that matter. McCain graduated at the bottom of his class, Palin has a BA in journalism. Obama, OTOH, graduated at the top of his class at Harvard. Obama, intelligence wise, is by far the smartest candidate. Can't imagine how anyone could argue that, but I'm sure the arguement is coming.....

He also took Obama down with his comments, ya know, he is right, Obama doesn't have any executive experience, other than a failed Annenburg and Woods project that had his ties to Bill Ayers and rev. Wright.

And facts still dictate she has more executive experience than BHO. And she's running for VP; BHO's running for PRESIDENT.

Despite what Cheney may think, VP doesn't really do much. Presidents, on the other hand, have quite a bit of power. Especially when Supreme Court Justices retire.

Personally, I think he is an empty suit. Full of promises and happy smile rainbows, but a revolutionary wannabe at heart.

With Pelosi, a complete frigging idiot, presiding over congress, plus a "viva revolucion!" president sitting in the White House, a lot of damage can be done... and quickly. Worse than that, BHO may actually have the opporunity to appoint extreme supreme court justices.... the kind who think their duty is to <i>legislate</i> form the bench.

Best case scenario, we end up with an old fart with a solid military background + dem congress (read: gridlock), versus an extremist left wing executive + legislative branch & a supreme court that grants them free reign to piss on the constitution.

if "executive experience" was THE priority i could go down the the guy who runs the local walmart store and get an experience "boss"

we are talking about vice president here


we need World political experience, Big View ideas,Foreign Policy experience. Hell i've had around 400 people work FOR ME at any given time ...... which is probably more than she did in Alaska.

Sign me up for VP ...... w00t!!!!!!!!!!!

no .... executive experience is just a trumped up way of saying she had to be the boss of something and that does mean shit when comes to being VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

So BO has all of this ? I see that Palin is neck and neck with him, they both have ideas, they both have no foreign policy experience, and both have no wold political experience.

But yet Palin does have her experience of a personal business, mayor experience , governor experience,school board / education experience.

Obama has community organizing experiences,voter registration experiences with ACORN ,writing books,filling an empty seat while in the Senate, shady friends associations experiences, and a world tour setup in celebrity fashion PR style.

Next question ?

Do you understand the difference in a smart man who was educated at Harvard and a woman who doesn't understand simple things?

Yep, do you understand too that one must exercise good common sense when making decisions ? Obo sure done a lot of this when he chose to run with the likes of ACORN,Wright, Resko,Ayers, Khalidi, the list is very long.

I do not trust his word when he lies and deflects about his associations. I've seen him lie about his campaign finance, took advantage of a loophole
to take in millions more money that was untraceable to be in a better position to win. I've seen him make a poor comment about the Russian / Georgia conflict.

In the business world I live in, we have to trust one another, your word and how you conduct yourself is your reputation. Obama does not practice this at all. The government has to be ran like a business.

I told a customer last Nov. that I wasn't doing anymore business with them, they were 60% of my income because of the shady things he was doing and the lies. They are still in business, still doing the same thing, their reputation is growing and they are eventually going to run out of options.

Sure it was hit on us, but what good is a man if he lies and cheats ?

Now I know you will come right back to McCain on this, so I will answer it for you. He is the lesser of the 2 evils IMHO.

Simple things ? You betcha, she does. I think it's you that doesn't understand the simple things. I'm willing to bet she knows a lot more than you. You and I together for that matter.

She definitely knows more than you. However, I'm sure I have a better grasp of government, rights, and all around politics than Palin. And I'm not close to being a politics guru. Nor am I running for office.

If anyone listens to Palin speak and think she's ready to be President I feel sorry for them.

Them?!?!

I weep for America.

the true arrogance of a republican ..... bravo!! :clap:

He's not the numbskull fantasizing that he could easily step in and do the Governor of Alaska's job with no problem.
