Are you for real? There are no Palin haters here - just people who are critical of those who put Palin on a pedestal.
If you haven’t noticed, this site is called Free Republic. It is not the Palin for POTUS posse site.
You are sounding like the very people that back Obama. You haven’t the luxury of deciding who goes and who stays, neither do I.
Start a Palin site and ya’ll can sit around and agree, but remember, when she enters the race, she will have competition, and you won’t be able to whine to JR to get rid of them.
I am talking about the Palin is a quiter, Palin is stupid crowd.
Rome is burning. and these morons are doing NOTHING to improve the situation we are in. As a party and as a country.
eating our own is not productive.
Ans most of these Palin threads are filled with woman haters, Christian haters and pro aborts.
That is a union, I said public office, not how many private jobs or offices Reagan had at 45, Palin held 3, Reagan none.
I think I asked you several times and you do some politically correct dodge.
What is your problem with Sarah Palin ?
Is it about abortion ?
But Reagan didn’t resign...
Douchenozzle says what?
Palin isnt Reagan and Reagan isnt 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 cant 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 wasnt perfect either.
I think more people can relate to Sarahs life more then Reagans.
Reagan wasn’t required to resign at the time., Palin really had no choice.
No, I know that. Just want to set the record straight.
Which jobs? Why do you not answer me? You said 3 factmart. What are they?
Reagan wasn’t running for POTUS at 45. We have a young one now. I would not use that argument.
Point taken. But it’s very much like a public office. And during Reagan’s time there it was quite eventful.
As I said the other night.
People who buy into the mainstream media line that “Palin is stupid”. And you seem to be one of them.
I don't think she's stupid at all.
I doubt that..
But lets cut through the bull here.
What is your problem with Sarah Palin ?
She would need seventy million votes at a minimum to win the WH in 2012. At least half of those votes will have to come from the moderate and independent blocs. Many will have to be Americans who voted for obama.
Please explain in as much detail as you can exactly how Sarah (who is perceived as the darling of the right, has very limited experience and who, like it or not, quit halfway through her first term) is going to win over ten to twenty million of these voters.
You aren’t too bright are you? You could have checked my posting history and you could have answered your own question.
So figure it out for yourself. I have no hate for Palin, I like her. Is she going to be the best candidate? She is a whole lot better than Flip, but I am not yet ready to sell my vote almost 3 years before the next election. I will watch who enters and what they do and say.
Sound fair? Palin isn’t the problem, her overly sold supporters are. They don’t want her to win, they work to alienate people with an unreal praise that keeps itself fed by demonizing everyone who isn’t really ready to campaign yet and have doubts. It by no means is a final statement that all those people won’t vote for her.
You folks even pretend that she has no downside at all. She does. And so will the others. How many We Love Mitt threads do you see? If you see one, they get excoriated.
It is the nature of the beast. Politics. Anyone who enters knows they have a hell of a job ahead.
Look around. Look at the economy. Look at unemployment. Look at what they are doing in Washington D.C. right now. Look at the amount of spending and consider the inflationary doom.
You are using conventional wisdom. This is not 1988 and these are not normal times.
Then why do you come onto to these threads and trash Palin supporters who agree with you on probably 90% of what you believe ?
7th or 4th? What was bigger? US, Germany, France. I think back then, California was still bigger than China. The UK is the only one I'm not sure of. It may have been bigger than California, but not by much.
I’m not sure, either ;-)
Sorry but simply listing the problems we face does not equate with explaining how Palin will get all those middle, middle/right, middle/left and independent votes. You can try again though.
What's discouraging is, despite wherever California was then, it's well below that level today. China, India, Mexico, Russia, Brazil and Italy have all surpassed CA, although California's own population growth has exceeded or met the growth in those other countries, save for China and India. California has all but lost it's industrial base, and that hurts its economic fortune more than anything.
Incidentally, I forgot Japan. Japan's economy was bigger than California back in Reagan's day.
If the economy is bad....
ANY warm body will be able to beat Obama. Palin has the the best potential to do do.
She has charisma. And she still has more executive experiance than our current President.
to do so..
I just get sick of the fact that you folks go on threads about people like Michelle Bachmann and because people may say nice things about her, start calling her worthless boob and flaming everyone you perceive to be a co contender in the presidential race.
Sad part, it really isn’t Palin doing it. Your minds are closed 3 years before the next election and Palin hasn’t even declared herself a candidate yet.
If you want an all Pro Palin site, start one.
She will be a top contender if she enters, it will be up to her at that time to win my vote in the primary.
Who would you pick Ol’ Wise One who knows more than most?
That’s exactly what YOU are doing!
No I am not. I first reacted here to the trashing of Reagan.
That was unnecessary.
This is par for the course lately.
Berating Reagan is what the Giuliani RINOs and Romney RINO's did too. Now it's the McPalin RINOs turn to attack him.
I was thinking the same thing. I was not a Rudy fan at all. I see a lot of the same tactics being used here. Wonder why?
Best potential? Based on what exactly? What about her CV gives you the idea that 70,000,000 Americans will decide that she has the expertise, knowledge and experience to pull the world's largest economy back from the brink and fight two wars and deal with the Mid-East and deal with the Asian Dragon and deal with a resurgent, aggressive Russia and deal with a collapsing European Union and.....
Is it her stint as mayor of a one-horse town or her two years as Governor of a small economic state that tells you she can do all this? Please explain.
"She has charisma. And she still has more executive experiance than our current President."
Charisma? Robert Redford has charisma. Barbra Striesand has charisma. Hell, obama is awash in the stuff.
As for your second statement...my wife has more executive experience than obama...nearly everybody I know does...that is meaningless unless we set the standard so low that the manager of the nearest Burger King can meet it.
Sorry, try again and please be detailed.
Knocking Palin only demolishes the fever we need to get the job done! Ronald Wilson Reagan was the perfect man in those difficult times. The Conservatives are activated, but aren't interested in listening to those who call us naysayers while being naysayers themselves! Three years is a long time like you said... Too early to count Sarah out also!
McConservatism isn't conservatism at all.
So, what is your agenda ?
View her speeches, as opposed the McCain’s speeches...
She was the true conservative compared to McCain!
That’s why she is so popular to the conservative base.
She would be wise to stay with conservatism. McCain is no help. She should not be actively working to get him reelected because he will be the bane of any conservative GOP President should they win. He will make sure we never get a damn thing conservative accomplished. She would have been far better off to have wished Juan well and moved on. She is a politician you know.
We all want our country back, Some just are not yet ready to throw that mantle to Palin.
She has to work for it. If the GOP fails to turn the country around if given the chance, conservatism is dead.
I suspect it is because you cannot, in detail, state a rational, convincing argument to support your statement. If you had such a rational, convincing argument you would have laid it out, but you haven't.
btw...my agenda is what it always was...get the WH back from the left. That means floating a candidate who can win. I have explained why I believe that Palin cannot. Still waiting for you to explain why she can.
As a Palin supporter, I don’t think she will run unless no other true conservatives step up!
She is spending her time stumping for conservatives(except McCain)
Talk is cheap. View her actions.
I worked at Reagan’s headquarter when he ran for Gov.
Reagan was my Gov. for 8 years.
Reagan never put up with the Left Wing bloggers pushing 18 frivolous law suits through court as Sarah Palin did, which cost her over $500,000 out of her pocket along with
months and months of her time and that of her staff.
After two years one by one all the Frivolous law suits
were dismissed with only more to come to take Sarah Palin’s time and money.
No other Governor has ever had to put up with this to
attempt to totally handcuff her governing her State.
Sarah put her State before herself, in that a State needs a full time Governor not being jammed by the left wing to take her out totally using up her time with Frivolous law suits.
Your constant she quit Crap shows you are desperate and can’t defend your own person for 2012 and can only try
to bash Sarah Palin, the only Conservative Republican who has a chance to beat Obama in 2012.
Okay, that is your opinion. I am not sure that she is the candidate yet.
I think I will wait until we actually have a campaign.
Not opinion but facts.
I know the drill with Frivolous lawsuits,
I am ret. legal support with the County Attornys in San Diego
I see you called you posse. I will ignore you, and them.
You do not impress me. I was in before the posse and I know who you are.
Still fighting the good fight between time outs.
tough, you can dish it out but you can’t take it.
Many on FR have never had a life, never worked
for 1 straight year let alone 40.
Good you stick to small town flyOver. You would never make it in the real world.
zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz! Whata way to win voters! Yay
I was banned for “trolling”, I wish I new what that meant. 30% of the posts on FR seem to be trolling.
I guess it’s where you troll.
