Bristol Palin Enthusiastic About Mom Running For President
Edgy Conservative ^

Posted on 09/12/2010 12:58:56 PM PDT by wk4bush2004

If Governor Sarah Palin decides to run for president next year, she can count on at least one unequivocal "yea" vote in her family -- her oldest daughter Bristol.

When asked about a potential Palin presidential run on EdgyConservative Radio yesterday, Bristol, a mom herself, gushed about the possibility, even as she acknowledged her own hestitancy to ever run for elected office.

"Yes, I really truly would (support her decision to run)," Bristol says. "I think it would be so great for our country. I know that my mom has it in her to lead our country in the right direction. I think that it would be awesome. It would be great."

Now THIS is fascinating!

I want Sarah to be our President so badly. She's got what it takes and she can lead us out of this mess! Plus, she's more qualified than Obama shall ever be....

Can anyone in this family (outside of Mr. Palin) stay out of the spotlight for a day?). They love to hear themselves talk and see themselves on TV. Not great traits regardless of ones politics.

Bristol’s turning into that character from “Oklahoma” who “cain’t say no”, especially to the media.

So is the guy behind the counter at McDonald's.

I don't see that as a real good selling point.

Bristol is a media whore; so is her mother.

Just being more qualified than Obama doesn’t mean she is qualified.

What even amazes me is that someone feels something like this is news worthy.

Bristol can best show her support by staying away from certified "dipsh@ts".

So? You don't see anything as a good selling point. I don't think you have original ideas , just resistant against any one eles's opinion, no matter what the subject!

I guess the latest thing is if you or anyone in your family might have plans to run for president, you can never do interviews or speak to anyone in the media.

Trembling and whimpers will be heard more and more as 2012 grows closer. They are so afraid of Palin it’s kind of funny.

(Good luck finding a real argument against her.)

Ya gotta love Bristol! She is so openly loving and respectful towards her mom.

So unlike those hideous brats on episodes of Dr. Phil titled “Rude and Abusive Teens.” These are all brats from liberal families.

WARNING....The Sarah bashers have come out to play on this thread. They cannot stand the fact that this intelligent, beautiful CONSERVATIVE woman might just make a run for President.

Qualified or not, Sarah Palin WILL run, WILL win the GOP nomination, and WILL win the 2012 Presidential election. It should be fairly obvious to just about any astute political observer. Oh well, you’ll eventually get the mental memo.

Could you imagine Bolton as the running mate....

That would make a lot of sense. He obviously has rock solid conservative credentials, is not a Washington "insider" (which is why those who are tend to despise him), and knows a thing or two about foreign affairs.

Heads would explode on the left. They have nary a clue about this world and that is why they hated Cheney. I would welcome such a ticket.

Oh, a funny story involving Bolton. I get along with all of my neighbors fairly well although they run the political gamut. The guy across the street is a conservative while the guy next door to me is a nice guy, but pretty liberal. He is an older gentleman who looks very much like Bolton. Well one day the conservative neighbor told the other guy he looked just like John Bolton, especially with his moustache that he had kept for as long as we had known him. The next time we see him he had shaved off the ‘stache so he wouldn’t look so much like Bolton. LOL

A FReeper here, (I don’t remember who) commented that it’s been a long time since we’ve had a President with a mustache.

The answer was ......Well we certainly have one with a Beard!...

Not an insider? By what definition?

“” I know that my mom has it in her to lead our country in the right direction. “”

She couldn’t lead you in the right direction Bristol.

“Honey”

See the tree, how big it’s grown
But friend it hasn’t been too long
It wasn’t big
I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it, was just a twig
Then the first snow came
And she ran out to brush the snow away
So it wouldn’t die
Came runnin’ in all excited
Slipped and almost hurt herself
And I laughed till I cried
She was always young at heart
Kinda dumb and kinda smart and I loved her so
And I surprised her with a puppy
Kept me up all Christmas Eve two years ago
And it would sure embarrass her
When I came in from workin’ late
‘Cause I would know
That she’d been sittin’ there and cryin’
Over some sad and silly late, late show

And honey, I miss you
And I’m bein’ good
And I’d love to be with you
If only I could

She wrecked the car and she was sad
And so afraid that I’d be mad
But what the heck
Though I pretended hard to be
Guess you could say she saw through me
And hugged my neck
I came home unexpectedly
And caught her cryin’ needlessly
In the middle of the day
And it was in the early Spring
When flowers bloom and robins sing
She went away

And honey, I miss you
And I’m bein’ good
And I’d love to be with you
If only I could

One day while I was not at home
While she was there and all alone
The angels came
Now all I have is memories of Honey
And I wake up nights and call her name
Now my life’s an empty stage
Where Honey lived and Honey played
And love grew up
And a small cloud passes overhead
And cries down on the flower bed
That Honey loved

And see the tree how big it’s grown
But friend it hasn’t been too long
It wasn’t big
And I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it, was just a twig...

(sniff)

Huh?? She announced she was getting back together with Levi the Loser through a magazine article (can’t remember which rag it was) BEFORE telling her Mother. I read the article. Doesn’t sound particularly respectful to me.

By the definition that he does not seek to curry favor with powerful people in DC. He doesn't play "the game". He doesn't see DC as a center of power that should dictate our lives.

That’s an odd definition, IMO. Not all “insiders” seek favors or want to dictate our lives (or think Government/D.C. should). Based on Bolton’s biography, he sure walks and talks like an insider. I guess Dick Cheney is not an insider in your eyes either, right?

Compare Bristol Palin with Meaghan McCain. Re: Meaghan, now THERE is a publicity hog! Nobody trashes the Palins worse than Meaghan. Without her family money, Meaghan would never have been heard of. The press loves her because she badmouths all Conservatives, and especially Sarah (and now Bristol). Bristol has made mistakes, but Meaghan makes one every time she opens her mouth.
