By Anita Kumar

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) said Wednesday on MSNBC that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) is qualified to be president of the United States.

"Listen, I think Sarah Palin's been a mayor, she's been governor of a state. I happen to be partial and think governors make great chief executive officers and have the experience to be good chief executive officers of the United States,'' McDonnell told host Andrea Mitchell. "I think Sarah Palin is qualified. I think Republicans are going to have 10 or more people that are looking to run for president in 2012 . I look forward to talking to them, meeting with them and making a decision down the road."

Gracious, gifted Gov. Sarah Palin is poised & prepared for the Presidency in 2012. Of course, she is qualified.

Not only is she qualified, she brings the most enthusiasm from the common sense people, the GOP base, the Tea Party movement, Reagan Democrats, conservative Independents and former Hillary supporters. I’m going to raise $2 million dollars for her and teach others to bundle donations. I will make thousands of phone calls and wear out a pair of shoes, even though my diabetic neuropathy is getting worse all the time.

If Barack Obama is qualified to be president, Sarah Palin is MORE THAN qualified. She has more elected experience than Obama had before becoming president.

She might have the qualifications on paper but she has the mental stability of an bull with it's balls tied in a knot.

Her first action would be to declare war on Canada to capture the land which the Alaska gas pipeline lays on because we can't trust them with murikan gas n stuff.

Anyone catch the clip for her new show?

The fact that Governor McDonnell thinks Sarah Palin is qualified to be President of the United States raises serious and disturbing questions about his judgement and qualifications!
