It's the Palin!
During the last election I thought Mitt would have the best chance to win in the General election. I was WRONG!
We had a Mitt light in Mccain and look what happened!
Every Lib says.. oh we're really scared of Romney or Pawlenty! That's JUST what they want us to think! They said the SAME thing about Mccain before the last election!
The last election was PROOF!
It changed my mind.
Not only will a mushy moderate not be a good choice.. they also won’t win!
No wonder. There are many, many similarities between mormon and Islam. I don’t know enough about Pawlenty to comment on him.
All I’ve heard about Pawlenty is he’s very moderate.
Just watching him on Meet the Press he said he wants to unite the whole Republican Party not just the Tea Party.
So that tells me all I need to know about him.
...and well they should. Their decript, unAmerican, anti-contitutional, immoral ways and havoc that they have caused this nation, our liberty, and our way of life are way past due for a come-uppance.
...and they know she and thew congress that is ushered in with her will give them one the likes have not been seen since the founding gave it to the British.
"Politics isn't just a game of clashing parties and competing interests. The right reason is to challenge the status quo, to serve the common good, and to leave this nation better than we found it. People know something has gone terribly wrong with our government and it has gotten so far off track. But people also know that there is nothing wrong in America that a good old-fashioned election can't fix. We don't need to fundamentally transform America. We need to restore America." Sarah PalinSarah Palin is shaking the Democratic leftist-liberal house to its foundation.
She and her family, their faith, their values, and their story represent the absolute refutation of all the tired old liberal mantras and victimology that the left has used to mentally, pshycologically, and financially enslave whole classes of people.
From women's rights, to family values, to gun rights, to abortion, to energy policy, to taxation, to envrionmentalism, and on and on...she is a wrecking ball to the leftist, liberal, socialist house.
Particularly her and Todd's decision to welcome their down's syndrome son into their home and count it a blessing...rather than abort (kill) that same son...exemplifies the refutation of the left's positions, as much as anything else, and is probably the sinlge most representative focus of hate that is feeding the rage and unbridled hate directed at Sarah and her family.
Their culture of life and love for such an one, their clear application of their Christian beliefs and heritage in such a case, to offend not even the least of one of God's children, completely disrobes and unhinges the liberal mantra in this regard. Sarah Palin and her husband had a chioce...they exerecised it, and that choice was for life, and that choice was clearly correct to all who have eyes to see.
The ‘RATS in the state run “media” haven’t even put on the rubber glove yet when it comes to Romney. Their toadie boy, Frankie Bailey and the 24,000 emails are their last big “hope” against Palin.
You’re thinking the same things I’m thinking..............
WELL said Jeff.
Good to hear from you as usual.
And a big AMEN!

“Look, look at this. We got Hurricane Grace moving north off the Atlantic seaboard. Huge...getting massive. Two, this low south of Sable Island, ready to explode. Look at this. Three, a fresh cold front swooping down from Canada. But it’s caught a ride on the jet stream...and is motoring hell-bent towards the Atlantic. What if Hurricane Grace runs smack into it? Add to the scenario this baby off Sable Island, scrounging for energy. She’ll start feeding off both the Canadian cold front...and Hurricane Grace. You could be a meteorologist all your life and never see something like this. It would be a disaster of epic proportions. It would be...”
“...the perfect storm.”
I agree, and disagree, to a point.
I think some libs are scared shirtless about Palin, and some under estimate her.
I think some libs are scared of Mitt because of his fund raising abilities and they have no idea how unpopular Mitt is among the tea party conservative crowd. I think some libs are aware of this and do not fear Mitt.
I think the one they least fear is Huntsman, followed by Pawlenty, in truth. I think those feeling are more or less universal among the libs. Just my .02.
Hope all is going well for you and your "machinery".
I put her on the same page as Reagan. As much as I love Reagan, it was never more appearant than when he died. I will never forget the THOUSANDS/and THOUSANDS or people who lined the roads/streets, bridges as far as the eye could see, paying their respect to the GIPPER.
Keep that picture in your mind, AMERICA loves & respects DECENCY. DECENCY is out there and ready to ROLL with PALIN, jmo.
Both the left and the right DC insiders seem to be scared. The whole left is engaged in a very organized long-scale attack that goes back to Palin’s convention speech with the Journolist and continues to this day with the talking points, with messnbc and others co-ordinating those talking points, with printing lies one day, retracting after damage done etc. The right is no better, and has gone into some sort of hunker-down mode hoping that she who shall not be named will just go away! if they are not just flat out saying she can not run or win.
The New Media and Tea Party is carrying her message, and I think that if Palin and all the other Rep candidates, Obama, and all the talking heads got together that we can all figure out who is the true partriot, who is looking out for America and Americans, who walks what they talk, who does not flip-flop and has not flip-flopped for a very long time (according to a 25,000 email search), who emenates Leadership and Trust and who does not.
It is no wonder they are scared silly, a person like Sarah Palin is not supposed to exist because if she getsto DC and blossoms there, then all of their world views are going to be torn down
You have that right and I’ll tell you who I’m scared of and that is Mitt Romney. How in the world he is even a contender boggles my mind given his record in Massachusetts. Not only did he work with liberal democrats to pass a state health care mandate. Not only did that mandate require funding for abortion and result in huge unfunded liabilities for MA but he also choose liberal Democrats and Democrat supporting Independents for 2/3s of his judicial appointments. Two of those appointments were homosexual activists. I can’t find any evidence that he even tried to fight on those appointments and one of these judges later released a violent criminal who murdered a newly wed couple over $50. He also went further not only proclaiming “Youth Pride Day” but and also continued to fund “Governor’s Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth” and even proposed doubling it to $250,000 during his tenure.
I don’t think I even need to go into his global warming stuff or his hiring illegal aliens? . As for fiscal issues the state of MA was ranked near bottom at 47th during his tenure in job creation.
I can’t find anything in his record that is the redeeming factor that would make me say ‘this guy is the guy’. It is really unbelievable the degree of whitewashing that has been done to keep this guy in the race. He should be simply disqualified for his record because it is horrible both fiscally and socially. He is is clearly not opposed to big govt as a general principle nor is he any way a constitutionalist. How conservatives and even Republicans could be so blind is just crazy. Romney is politically just horrible. If he wasn’t handsome and didn’t have money and a glossed over business record the man wouldn’t be even considered. This is the empty suit of empty suits. He could very well be worse than Obama because I believe the reason many want him in power is to make sure that Obama’s policies are turned into concrete. Sure he will repeal Obama care in part but I guarantee at the end of the day the core progressive ideas of government control will remain and then guess what we will own it.
The principled highground is not something to be thrown away. 2010 did happen, the Tea Party did happen and does exist. Do we want all this progress to be flushed down the toilet because that is what a win with Romney would do? I don’t think he will win and I’ll sure as hell never help put the man in the WhiteHouse. He was a failure in Massachusetts and he’ll not be my failure in Washington DC.
This man must be defeated. He should not even be a contender and that is not because he is a Mormon it is because he is an unprincipled fiction who stands opposed to all our core values and founding principles.
Money, power and position promised ... goes a long way.
That is what we need to change forever. How many of those big money self funders won in 2010? I know of one Gov Rick Scott and the establishment hated him because he didn’t compromise the conservative message he ran on it and won against all odds and with baggage that would have killed a lesser candidate. If conservatives want to know how to win they should look at that campaign.
There is no way the dems fear Mitt Romney for anything. He’s one of them.
Just before the Nom, he was in last place, and broke. They told him to pick the worst possible Veep, and he "thought" he did.
It Cain't gonna happen again!
I”m not saying Dems should fear Mitt - and I’m not saying they all do. The inside the beltway conventional thought Dems think he’s “formidable” as a political opponent. That’s what I meant.
Many lazy conservatives think so too. I hate to break it to you, but 99% of the country does not pay attention to these things the way Freepers do.
And as bad as Mitt is, he is not a DailyKos Huff Po marxist. He’s bad, but not that bad.
You're wrong. - Waryone
Yes I know, one way to gain cred with some Freepers is to try and prove you hate Mitt the most and that you are the most deranged about anyone who over uttered a good word about him in any context and for any reason and at any time and in any circumstance.
You win that one.
I’ll simply support other candidates and take a pass on the obsession.
So you believe I tell the truth about Mittens to earn Freep cred?!?!?!
HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!
Sorry Noob! I didn’t know you were a comedian. People who have been here longer than you don’t worry about earning Freep cred.
Just tell the truth and shame the devil. Give all the glory to God.
I don’t believe I have any problem with telling the truth about Mitt - but you showed your colors by assuming I’m a Mitt guy simply because I am not as obsessed with him as you are. We will both cast a single vote against Mitt, and your total hatred will not make your vote one bit more powerful than my simple disdain for him.
BTW — some of us have cred in a LOT of places, and man, you’d be surprised. The noob card is the last refuge of the............
Anybody worrying about Freep cred, has got to be a noob. It just so happens that your born on date matched.
I never assumed anything about who you supported. I just disagreed with you about how bad Romney is. And yes I do unapologetically hate all RINOs and fake conservatives. Unlike you, I will make sure everyone I contact with hears the truth about Mitt and other phony conservatives.
I really don’t like people who try to fleece the unwary.
I’m not at all worried about Freep cred - just have noticed a certain dynamic about it.
BTW I never check “born on” dates because to me they are meaningless. The fact that I wrote about politics and was warning about RINO’s since 1992 -before most folks knew what one was and before most knew McCain was one — speaks to cred more than the day I finally decided to breakdown and comment on FR officially IMO.
I’ve long read and enjoyed FR and have long had my published work linked by FR - way before I joined. My “born” date, like everyone not named JRob, is totally meaningless as far as cred goes.
I guess you and I will have to disagree, but I will put my anti RINO cred against anyone’s, but I will not win a “wiener” contest if the credentials are how long you’ve been on FR and how badly you hate Mitt.
BTW, google Rush and “Top Ten Moderate Moments in GOP History” for a sample of my cred.
Thanks for the ping!
Palin is the power.
They have searched every dust particle on the ground she walks on, and failed to slow the Palin juggernaut in any way. She relentlessly marches toward the oval office as satanic heads explode in both parties.
All we need is to Keep the Faith.
>> “ I wrote about politics and was warning about RINOs since 1992” <<
Wow, that far back, huh?
Most of us here go decades before that, Like 1960, and 1964. The only thing interesting about the recent stuff like ‘92 is that was the most recent year some of the political noobs saw how devastating it was having a RINO in the White House in an election year.
Ask your mom and dad.
The memorial link there has the pictures you speak of.
It will remain up on my site as long as I live.
Thank you, mr FRiend. All of that new hardware is not easy to get used to...but it’s what the Lord used to keep me here according to His will and purposes and I attribute all to Him and the faith and prayers of so many family, friends and neighbors.
Amen to every bit of that!
Yes we are my FRiend! Hope things are well for you and yours down Tejas way. We’ll keep the faith up here on the northern border.
That’s a fact.
I want to leave the voting booth feeling good about my choice. I intend to do just that.
For any Republican to win they have to swing many millions of voters to vote for them. The Dem operatives around Obama understand this.
I think every Freeper should go out and talk to their swing-voting friends and relatives who voted for Obama. I have been doing this for several months now, including via group-emails.
I don’t know any Republican / Conservatives who voted for Obama. I don’t think any Freepers voted for Obama. So winning all the McCain, getting the GOP faithful votes, but no Obama voters, means another 4 years of Obama.
Among all the GOP candidates the media hates Palin the most. The media has set out to demonize her, very unfairly. We know the truth, and perhaps they have so overplayed their hands that even some swing voters are thinking she’s getting screwed.
But my sense is that the die is cast and that she can’t attract a significant number of swing voters.
My friend, lets call him Buck, has voted for every winning President forever. That means he voted for Bush2 - TWICE, but it also means he voted for Obama.
He thinks Obama is doing a terrible job. But he also thinks Palin is a lightweight. I’ve tried to convince him that he’s been bamboozeled, but to no avail.
Maybe he’s a outlier, and their are lots of former Obama voters who could be convinced to vote for her, but I think not. So I do think that someone like Pawlenty, Romney, Huntsman or maybe Perry has a better change of beating Obama if nominated.
I think of the available true conservative candidates Bachmann is a better candidate than Palin, on several levels. One of these, that should not matter but does, is that they have been unable to distort and destroy her using the ‘politics of personal destruction’ that the MSM favors. Maybe they got a late start, but also she seems far smarter about dealing with the press than Palin.
I do admire Palin, and would certainly vote for her in the general election if she is the nominee. But I don’t think she will win a general against Obama.
Congratulation on the 2 million hits! Awesome and very well deserved.
Also, and more importantly, congratulations on your successful recovery and it’s GREAT to see you back posting on FR about politics!
Have any new books in the works? I gave several people “The Stand at Klamath Falls” for Christmas. It’s still my favorite of all your books.
When we get depressed over the OBozo situation, REMEMBER, these people are still out there and they are looking for the next Election.
Those pictures should be an inspiration to all of us. So far Sarah is the only one walking in Reagan's footsteps.
Writing about RINOs since 60 or 64? Really? Funny, in my research the term didn’t seem to show up back then. Yes, I realize Reagan and Helms had the great debates about third party verse a revitalized second party circa 1970 and following, but I don’t remember the term RINO in that research. If you were ahead of Reagan and Helms, I am impressed with you indeed.
Impressed you are still alive, too.
But then he won two landslides.
I honestly believe Palin is capable of the same and will support her accordingly.
She has to get through the primaries, and clearly, if Bachman or another won out in the primaries I would support them whole heartidly against Obama and his socio-marxist ideology and admin.
Thanks for the kind words. The good Lord blessed me greatly and allowed, for His purposes, me to keep on living here on this earth last year. I give Him and Hi Father, God in Heaven, all credit and will witness their name every chance I get.
That knowledge, and those principals are what counts, in this life, and beyobnd.
God's best to you and yours JB!
>> “But my sense is that the die is cast and that she cant attract a significant number of swing voters” <<
Logic goes against your theory Jack.
Were your view even a little close to reality, the MSM would not be wasting billions of dollars fighting Palin every minute of every day.
They fight her because their best internal polling tells them that Palin has a lock on the presidency, and they will spare nothing to turn that around.
They will of course fail.
