Barbara Bush vs Sarah Palin: "Sarah is all class"
Riehl World View ^ | 11/20/2010 | Dan Riehl

Posted on 11/20/2010 4:38:37 PM PST by Lakeshark

"Barbara Bush Should Shut Up," says Dan Riehl. Oh no. Not our Bar. Painful to acknowledge, but after a lifetime of embracing the former first lady's persona of outspoken authenticity, we have to admit she no longer speaks to us. See below for details. Above, GHWB and Barbara in a Larry King interview that will air Monday.

Rather than Sarah staying in Alaska, perhaps our former first couple can simply stay out of sight for a while.

You know, the former first couple should show the same class Reagan showed them.

The more Establishment/Ruling Class Republicans and Libs talk against Sarah, the more I like her.

When was Mrs. Barbara Bush elected to any office? Then why do I care what she thinks about Governor Sarah Palin and 2012? Miss Meghan McCain doesn’t like Gov. Palin, either. So what?

I like this quote from the article:

I think she's (Palin) a classy, smart lady. I dunno if POTUS 2012 is the right move, but I want her dealing pain to libs and RINOs."

It sure suits this thread which addresses Barbara Bush’s unfortunate and very stupid comment.

Her Jeb is not going to be POTUS and both she and 41 lavish praise on ‘adopted son’ son Bill Clinton, but Sarah Palin should stay in Alaska? I guess Sarah reminds Barbara Bush too much of Ronald Reagan.

The remark sure seemed a bit rude, and also showed a lack of manners. It seems all the Republican president’s wives are really liberals.

I get the impression that McCain and the Bushes don’t like Palin because she’s not a ‘New World Order’ shill.

The biggest mistake Reagan made was having Bush as V.P...he was a RINO...he could have carried on Reagan's agenda but no ...he wanted to get along with the RATS...

Pretty much.

In fact, you can get trashed for even mentioning the possiblity that she might not be the best possible candidate for 2012.

There are more than 300M people in this country. 50M to 75M are conservative adults eligible for the presidency. Why in the world have we fixated on one person three years out?

Why would they?

GHWB didn't even show any class towards Reagan with his "Voodoo Economics" slur, referring to the free market processes Reagan supported.

Who would pay attention to this spent old baby killer UNLESS she bashed Palin or other real American? What an unseemly spectacle: this silver spoon, country club Republican harridan pandering to and groveling before those who despised both her loser husband and disloyal, cowardly son. Yes cowardly: Bush 43 would not pardon Libby even though he KNEW Scooter was the innocent victim of a political lynching. Because he feared the Liberal Media. These people should just go away. They have done enough harm.

I think it has less to do with Sarah Palin, and more with Barbara Bush chiming in on a political hot-potato topic like a dutiful gossip girl for a slimy little weasil like Larry King, and GHW sitting there nodding approval.

The Globalist fBush family should slither back under their rock.
That’s putting it pretty hard? You really think so? Well Bush 41 and Bush 43 laid the ground work to usher in Barrack Obama. And leaving the borders wide open also ushered in a hugely under estimated number of criminals and parasitic illegals who have been bankrupting our states against the wishes of the American people!

If Sarah Palin, or any other proven Conservative, gets the nomination for president, the wide awake Tea Partiers will insure that candidate’s success.

Let’s pray that the freshman Congress will cut funding for any unconstitutional programs, and trim the sails which have outlived their usefulness! In other words, that they will abide by their promises to their constituents.

Why? If Babs can tell Gov. Palin to stay in Alaska, on CNN, and you think that’s okay, I think it’s probably okay to tell you to shut up on FR. I wouldn’t waste my breath, because I know it’s never going to happen, but other people think otherwise.

John McCain was Lame against obama but a tiger against J.D. Hayworth.

Looks like the Bush’s are the same way. Nothing bad to say against Obama. But yeah bring out the daggers against sarah.

Apparently. I’ve noticed that too.

Be interesting if there was a poll on how many FReepers would vote for her if she ran tomorrow.

Personally, I find her voice a tad too high & screechy.
But maybe I’m not allowed to say that.

What exactly were you questioning her judgment about? All I read was Babs implying that Gov. Palin should stay in Alaska, on that pervert Larry King’s show, and you standing up for her.

I think it’s Babs judgment that should be called into question on this thread, not Gov. Palin’s.
