Skip to comments.New York Post: Truman, Ike, Reagan: Next Up, Sarah Palin!
Posted on 03/17/2010 7:46:25 AM PDT by MaxCUA
THE ISSUE: Whether presidential candidates today have character, as their predecessors did. In looking for a president with the character of Dwight Eisenhower, Harry Truman and Ronald Reagan, Ralph Peters asks, "Will we ever again have a president who didn't go to an Ivy League school, who knows what it's like to struggle -- as so many Americans struggle every day -- and who's tasted defeat, but got back in the ring with his dukes up?" ("Why Our 'Post-Modern Presidents' Fail,").
The answer is "yes." Her name is Sarah Palin. etc...

The tighter you grip this “Palin is Reagan” mantra the more votes will slip through your fingers.
Palin will never become Reagan until
she distances herself from Juan McShame.
I can see her sitting with these fellows.
Palin isn’t Reagan and Reagan isn’t Palin.
She has taken more crap than Reagan ever did and at her age has more political experience then Reagan had at her age.
I doubt that Sarah kids will ever turn into a Ron Jr or his sister who can’t stand what their father stood for.
And Palin lives pro-life, and she would never put a liberal on the Supreme Court as Reagan did.
I loved Reagan, but he wasn’t perfect either.
I think more people can relate to Sarah’s life more then Reagan’s.
Can’t wait for the day when she can see the Potomac from her house.
You just made a huge mistake. Reagan served 2 whole terms as California Governer. Man never resigned his post. He took the time and worked hard to get where he did.
Actually, you’re the one who made the mistake - in reading comprehension.
The original poster stated that Palin has more experience “at her age” than Reagan did “at the same age.”
No mistake there.
Yes, but...Reagan was left alone to use his 2 terms as Governor as a launching pad in his quest for the White House. Palin would never have been given that respect or courtesy. They fear her a lot more than they did Reagan.
Sadly I must say that Reagan was a failure as a dad. Just look at how screwed up his kids are.
Well, It looks like the ghost of Levi ain’t going away.
It isn’t necessary to knock Reagan to pump up Palin. In fact, that tactic will hands down lose some votes.
The only similarity between what the two faced as governor exists is in your mind.
No, Reagan actually thought he might have to serve as Governor and didn’t seek the Presidency at that age.
If you folks feel like putting Reagan down you go on ahead.
It really is a poor conservative campaign tactic.
[this never gets old]

I love Palins conservatism and patriotism! She may very well support McCain out of loyalty and I have no problem with that. And I have no problem with whom she supports with her PAC. There is nothing written that says she has to do everything (or anything at all) according to JIM.
Sarah is unabashedly pro-God, pro-Life, pro-Liberty, pro-family, pro-America, pro-constitution, pro-gun, pro-limited government and so am I. And shes wildly popular among the God-loving, Liberty-loving folks with whom I choose to associate. In short, shes a refreshing breath of clean fresh air in an otherwise putrid failure of a RINO infested party.
She represents my interests better than any other viable wannabe at this point and if she decides to run, she will have my undivided support!! Romney, the draft-dodging, Big Government, lying statist political whore can KMA!! And your picture does say a 1,000 words, but Bob, unfortunately theyre all about YOU and political whores like you and the results and likely outcome of your slavish, cultish RINOism!!
So you can shove your picture and your RINOs where the sun dont shine.
Sarah has more guts, talent, ability, patriotism, and sheer determination and love for America and our God-given Liberty than you and Romney and a thousand other RINOS will ever have!
Its been more than obvious for several years that our pro-Life & Liberty Free Republic has become an embarrassment for you, so why the hell dont you just take a fricken hike already!!
Shove it, pal.
GET THE HELL OFF FR if you dont like it, but whatever you do quit your damn whining and pestering good conservative FReepers about your hatred for Sarah Palin!!
Its beyond sickening.

I am not putting Reagan down, but their circumstances when they served as governor were entirely different, something you seem unable to comprehend.
Excuses, But please go ahead with the Reagan bashing. I won’t stop you.
“Cant wait for the day when she can see the Potomac from her house.”
Tina Fey said that, not Sarah Palin.
Russia can be seen from three sites in Alaska:
1. The LRRS radar station on the western most mainland of Alaska. 55 miles to Russia and you can see the Siberian mountains.
2. From an island (St. Michaels?) that is 37 miles from Russia
3. From Little Diomede island you can see Big Diomede island which is Russian. The distance is 2.5 miles and if you can avoid border patrols, you can walk to Big Diomede when the strait freezes over.
This information is, BTW, 4th or 5th grade level and is generally taught under the category of “Astonishing things about Alaska”. In other words, everyone knows this, unless you were sleeping in class.
The Tina Fey comment that you paraphrase leads me to believe that you can’t separate fact from fantasy.
Stating that Reagan wasn't in danger of going bankrupt because of frivilous lawsuits or targeted by the White House while he was governor is hardly “Reagan-bashing.” You are losing it.
