Roseanne Barr

Roseanne Barr is known for getting numerous men and women to aide Roseanne in this campaign. She gains trust, her people do her work for her, and in the end she yanks the carpet out from under them. She has a reputation for hating men out of impulse and she is unpredictable. Roseanne has taken the work people have done for her for granted since 2006. The People aren't safe with Roseanne Barr as a President or as a Mormon claiming that she would enter the Israel Temple and raise herself to Prime Minister of Israel. She has made numerous threats to various world leaders and is a war monger herself. (talk)05:57, 24 August 2011

A comedian makes a running gag again (she's also said she was running for PM of Israel) and we cover it like real news? Why? (talk)18:11, 11 August 2011

Which is why this isn't in her biography article on Wikipedia.

Seriously...... (talk)04:57, 8 August 2011

laughable ... not

(1) never held office before ... just what the country needs ... to move from a guy that handed out fliers on street corners to someone with even less executive experience
(2) from her article on wiki i cannot find even one minute of college experience ... just what the country needs ... to move from a guy that at least went to Harvard law to a person whose background is no better that a monkey in a cage that throws its feccess (talk)12:40, 6 August 2011

This is just making a mockery of the US Presidential system. Her running, not what you said. (talk)15:13, 6 August 2011

Wow, elitism much? Didn't go to college? Abe Lincoln didn't. Hasn't held office? George Washington hadn't.

That being said, this would be awful for America. (talk) 00:55, 7 August 2011 (UTC) (talk)00:55, 7 August 2011

To be honest, both Lincoln and Washington lived in VERY different times. You cannot compare their experience and education with what is expected now. Lincoln is defined by the American civil war, and Washington rose to prominence thanks to the American revolutionary war. Both led a fledgling nation that was not yet a prominent player in international politics. Both were leaders during wartime on American soil. (Yes, I know that the war was over by the time Washington became president.)

Lincoln led during a crisis that threatened the existence of the USA, and Washington led during and after a revolution, a most important time during the formation of any country.

Compare that with the rather agressive superstate the current presidents will have to lead.

I sincerely hope the American people will vote for experienced and educated men or women to lead the USA, and to be their local representatives as well. (talk)12:23, 7 August 2011
