Video: Re-Elect Obama: He made peace and job to complex for Sarah Palin.
Man, I would rather go nowhere than the wrong way!
(...not that I think Sarah would do a bad job heading in the Right direction.)
During the early part of the campaign, IIRC, the satirical attack ads against zero that Team McCain started producing were quite effective at reducing zero’s poll numbers.
I urge FReepers with the relevant skill-set to start producing these sorts of videos now lest we be preempted by the sinister forces of darkness wafting over from the left.
For starters, there have been some truly excellent snarky Photoshop images posted on FR. With each author’s permission (which I will request individually), I can put a number of these images into an animated montage and upload it to YouTube. It might be a way to start the New Year (and an election year) off on the Right Foot.
Sarah Palin Scary only to the progressive liberals who are clueless to leadership,freedom,logic....
Many people voted for McCain because Palin was on the ticket. So in that respect she was able to draw more people to vote republican. However for as many people, mainly conservatives, that she was able to draw I'm afraid that there were an equal number who voted against McCain for the exact same reason.
What I feel is needed for the next presidential cycle is a fresh face who can enunciate core conservative principles without the baggage of the last election cycle. This CAN be done. Given the utter disaster that is known as the Obama presidency I'm of the opinion that our chances brighten by the day. I'm just not so sure that Sarah Palin is the one to take us there.
“That being said, Sarah Palin at this point in time could not win the presidency.”
I hope you, the media and Obama’s folks keep thinking this. It will help her win. She will benefit by defying expectations. Hopefully you will break from the media and Obama’s people when she becomes the nominee but even if you don’t - I like her chances in 2012.
“at this point in time” is the key phrase. She isn’t campaigning for president “at this point in time”. For those of you old enough to remeber the left was trumpeting the same mantra in 1966 about Nixon and in 1976 about Reagan. You know the rest of the story...
I think 3 years is not a long time in some ways but is just enough time for her to soften the resistance to her.
I don’t believe people went out on election day with the deciding factor in their mind being vote against Palin. I find the thought to be nonsense,especially that it was equal numbers for and against her. She boosted the ticket. Without her McCain suffers an even worse defeat.
I won’t go so far as to say had she headed the ticket it would have been closer but its a possibility and shes in an arguably stronger position now than she was then. Shes learned how to deal with attacks on her,knows when to tell a hostile reporter no interview. The further back the games the interviewers played on her the better her image.
Yeah RU486 is buying conventional wisdom and revisionist history on this issue. McCain lost because of his capt queeg like campaign suspension and subsequent threat to no show for the debate. The whole thing made obamao look like the steady hand, thus losing the only issue McCain ran on, Leadership.
My fear is that with the current hatred ginned up by the left, Sarah (and her children) have serious security issues, and there are just enough maniacs that would do ANYTHING so stop her (BTW, her demise at the hands of the usurper or his minions would start the Second Civil War).
Unlike the other GOP'ers, she won't hesitate to tell it like it is, which scares the living daylights out of the left and even some on the right.
IMHO, for her to win, she first needs to lead the charge to taking back at least one side of Congress. That would build the national organization she would need to campaign for 2012.
And before the Palinistas come after me, right now Sarah has the power to call up and Army, and I'd be first inline if/when she gave the word. And right now, I think the usurper is one terror strike away from being forced out in the primaries. (notice how the usurper's party has already killed the superdelegate concept that got him the nomination).
In short, for her to win it all, she first needs to stay alive and healthy, lead the Tea Party takeover of the GOP, and get the RNC to ensure CLOSED primaries. If Sarah can do this, she can virtually start implemeting her agenda in 2011 - two years before she takes office. Americans will be starving for American leadership by then.
but if she is not ready to meet the challenges listed above, the my advice would be to run for the U.S. Senate seat up in Alaska.
The reason Sarah Palin is “scary” is that she puts the lie to everything about the left’s ideology.
Leftist ideology is simply based on lies, and anyone telling the truth must be destroyed. (See political correctness for examples)
“...it became abundantly clear to me as we closed in to November that the MSM were much more intent of discrediting Palin than they were worried about McCain.”
God....not this shi’ite again. OF COURSE THEY WEREN’T WORRIED ABOUT McCAIN! THEY PICKED McCAIN.
The answer to your position is in your own observation, you just need to put two and two together. Any...ANY conservative candidate will be skewered by the lib media. They attacked Palin because they fear her. They will attack ANY conservative because they fear conservatism. If you are waiting for a conservative candidate that the media does not attack (which is implied in your comments) you will be waiting forever. The flip side of that is, if you will not support Palin because she was so denigrated by the lib media that they destroyed her as a viable candidate, then you will never support a conservative, because the media will do the same thing with EVERY conservative candidate.
Either way, you are letting the liberal media pick who you can vote for.
And I defy you to support your statement that “there were an equal number who voted against McCain for the exact same reason.” To not vote for McCain because of Palin — as a VP candidate — would be stunningly stupid. If people actually did that they are too stupid to vote for anybody. If people are that stupid then conservatives will NEVER win.
I don’t believe conservatives or most Republicans are that stupid. Only people who think that a conservative candidate can run without being attacked by the lib media are that stupid.
See my post #15. I read yours after posting mine. FWIW.
McCain never ran against Obama. That’s why he lost. I won’t tarnish the mans name and call it fear but rather cautiousness as he stepped into the unknown running against a minority candidate for the nations highest office.
We know from what we’ve read that Palin was more than willing to go after him. I think that’s the real fear on the dems side. They know they have a paper thin candidate that will not stand up to the pressure.
I will. He's a craven slut!
The only reason Obama won is because the media is completely corrupt.
They did everything to get him elected and to defeat McCain. They covered up his past, all Obamas errors and fooled the American people.
It McCain received the same help he would have won. Reports some positive news stories for Obama as 85% and 15% for McCain.
They “created” all the perceptions about Obama, McCain & Palin. All false
If people actually did that they are too stupid to vote for anybody.
I agree again.
Unfortunately, I know women who did this - well educated, long time registered Republican voters. They are as afraid of Palin as the commies on the left are. They were willing to vote for McCain until he named Palin his VP. Their reasons for hating her are as substantive as those given by the far left, and they are as solidified in their beliefs about her as those on the left are. They voted for Obama despite their awareness of his positions aimed at stripping them of their upper middle class accumulated wealth, i.e. redistribution. Even seeing what an absolute disaster Obama is for their financial well-being, they are willing to do it again if it's between Obama and Palin. How do you change the minds of women like that?
How....? I have no idea. If the can’t see facts there is little hope. I would guess that you have to go to the very basics...good vs. evil. Obama is, by definition, a fascist. Sarah is for democracy and and freedom. If they can’t see that...or if they see it and still vote for Zero...there is nothing that can be done.
But to make emphasize part of my point, these women are Republicans, not conservatives. They may not understand that, but you and I do.
