Skip to comments.Prediction: No Inside The Beltway Advisor Will Support Palin As Ad Hominen Continue
Posted on 02/04/2011 11:04:17 AM PST by USSR Didnt Fall
I am getting sick and tired of people making and posting all these shallow ad hominem attacks on Sarah Palin.
She threatens business as usual in Washington, period.
The next time some so called"expert" in the media, ex Bush, ex Mccain establishment types attack someone like Palin , ask the question what part of her policy stances are they criticizing?
The answer will always be the same NONE.
Reason being, they know she sides with the American people on the major issues and if they were to be honest about why they come on these shows and write what they do, it would work only to embolden her chances of winning in 2012.
Keep the personal attacks coming Bush and Mccain folks, we see right through the fact you care very little about this countries future.
It's all about gorging yourselves at the trough of tax payer money, before the big government policies you have championed all these years collapse our system for good.
Right, because it’s not about truth or merit, in these days
So they demonize, insult, ‘create’ a ‘perception’...
IMO at this point any Republican attacking Palin is demonstrating they value their position in the party over their country.
What is a real shame is that the inside the beltway Republicans trash her more then the Dems do..you would think Republicans would come together and go after the REAL enemy of America, the Democrats, who want to destroy this country but NO, all they do is trash Sarah Palin..if she wants to run, she can run if she wants to, free damn country(At least for the time being) its Republicans like those elitist pricks that show me that many in the GOP are the same as the Democrat party, different name, same crap
Wow must be a slow in the basement blogger day, suddenly stories from all kinds of people coming out against Palin today.....
Well that way they can be run all weekend, and why?
This might have something to do with it.
just how truly horrible today’s employment data was, comes from a little observed data metric: that showing the number of people who are not in the labor force, but who want a job now. The number just hit 6,643K, a jump of 431K from December, and the highest number in history. These are people that would send the unemployment rate to about 12.8% if they were in the labor force (and, as indicated, looking for a job). Nothing else needs to be said.
It’s all about the perception of her that they create. Not what the facts about her are.
When everyone is all abuzz, insulted, outraged at what they are saying about Palin, they aren’t talking about the truth of Obama’s failures...
No one ever said Palin was a saint, but she is good people.
If she represents a threat to the establishment in Washington that is excellent.
We either reign in this government and put it back on the path to small government and big liberty or it is all going to end for us sooner rather than later. Hard lefties have been driving the agenda for decades, it’s going to take more decades of the hard right to fix things.
In the end, all this does is solidifies her “outsider” status. I highly doubt she’s looking to any of the Beltway crowd for advice anyway.
>>There are two ways to deal with Palin - you can see her conservatism and raise her, or you can take cheap shots. <<
Or, you can analyze her strengths and weaknesses and come to a conclusion on her viability as a candidate.
Well, just so. When Palin became governor of Alaska, a lot of Republicans in the Corrupt Bastards Club ended up in jail.
As it happens, the FBI was already after them, and it might have happened anyway. But it didn’t help them that Palin threw them out of office and refused to cover up for them.
Palin was willing to work with insiders who proved to be willing to change their ways and work with her. But she was not willing to shovel pork and bribes around. That’s what they hate about her.
When I see Republicans trashing her, its really sad to see..of course Palin is no saint..no one is perfect..but to see the kind of hated for her from her OWN party is disgusting. The GOP won’t let her even run, bank on it..and just to show how impartial I am, they won’t allow Michele Bachmann to run either. If ANYONE thinks these same goons who trash Sarah Palin are going to let Bachmann win, well, keep on living in that delusional world..the GOP wants Romney to be the nominee, plain and simple..they see him as a “Centrist” ya know, basically the White Obama, who won’t get trashed by the media as much since the media loves Obamacare, they will love Romneycare..with Huckabee, yeah the media might be kissing his butt now, but if he ever got the nomination, they would bring up every damn thing he ever did
How can Sarah Palin be stopped from running? Winning...that’s up to a number of factors, but nobody can stop her or Bachmann from running.
Out of what we have running right now, my vote would be for Palin. I know there will be many more to get in, but I will listen carefully and make up my mind then. All I can say is she is so much better than what we have now it hurts. The beauty of the Constitution was that farmers and business types could run the country if they didn't try to run everything, like how much salt I need or what car to drive. I trust Sarah to know what makes business thrive and what the limit is for Federal government. I also think she is smart enough to know that commies= bad, and ragheads= death. How much more do you need to know about foreign policy? Our bunch right now thinks ragheads worship a real god and commies are just like anyone else. I knew more than that in the 6th grade.
Simple, by doing what they are doing..going on TV, saying she has NO chance in hell of winning..basically saying “Hey no one in the GOP is going to support you so don’t bother running” making both feel really small, like they don’t have anyone in their own party defending them. Both know they will have to deal with the leftist press out to destroy them, but when they don’t have the backing of their own party, yeah that has to hurt a lot. Not sure if Michele Bachmann is running, it looks that way but who knows for sure, but I doubt these same GOP elitist Obama lovers will allow her the opportunity to win
Its like building the foundation of a house on sand; eventually it will collapse.
I am not going to sit here and listen to these socialist hacks in the Republican party rip into a patriot, it may work for you but not for me.
The time is now to stand with people who stand with the American people.
This back and forth Obama vs Bush thing is a joke, they are both big government socialists, one worse then the other.
Our side refuses to admit it and wonder why they are so outspoken about a house mom from Wasilla who speaks about shrinking government, not a Marxist in the oval office who wants to transform our whole society.
Spend some time to think about that...
If every once in a while one of these insiders came to a different conclusion, you might have a point.
Could it be her 'strengths and weaknesses' aren't the only considerations in these incessant articles?
For the life of me, I just don’t see what Sarah Palin has done to demand such treatment?
She’s not perfect, I don’t expect her to be. Why are they so afraid of her? What is it about her that has absolutely got otherwise normal people so wound up? I just don’t see it.
Maybe she’s not the smartest from the best-est school. It is beyond crystal clear that anyone who has gone to Harvard, Yale, Columbia, or Princeton is completely unqualified for executive elective office. The graduates of these schools have gotten us into this mess, they are certainly not going to get us out of it.
That needs to be the tack we need to take on anyone on the left who has ever been enrolled in these ivy-league towers of colossal idiocy. Harvard law, Princeton law, and all of Columbia needs to be shut down ASAP.
it’s the REAL change they are all afraid of.......
DC is a company town. Outsiders threaten their very livelihoods. They bring in their own staffs, rely on different pundits or rely on them not at all.
Plus a loose cannon like Palin might just mean what they say about reforming DC's beloved bureaucracy, heaven forbid.
It naive to think that's not at play here.
The Republican nominee for 2012 had damned well better NOT be Romney. If it is, we can kiss this country goodbye via another four years of the Obamanation that we’re now enduring.
There are still a lot of inside the beltway and outside the beltway types that adjourn to the little boys room,and make decisions over the urinals. I call it Tinkle and talk, and I hate to say it but the Republicans even in rural areas do this more than Rats. They would not be able to Tinkle and talk with Sarah, they would have to send in a conniving blond bimbo like Dana Perino in to get their word out.
They do not understand that they cannot win without Sarah's base, and the more they trash her so unreasonably,and unfairly,the more we hate their guts.
They said the same about Reagan & he was fully capable of tinkle talk.
I have a feeling it will be Romney. Look, I am not one of those “Palin or bust” people, because I know some will accuse me of being that way. She is NOT my only choice, I have a few others, Cain, DeMint, Bachmann, anyone that I feel represents my views I will look at them..but knowing how the GOP is, they will want Romney to run and win. Who do you think these nasty comments are coming from, these inside sources, they are from Nicole Wallace and the rest of the Romney group. These are Romney people, progressive Republicans. When I heard Glenn Beck say that the Republican party better watch out because they will be overrun by Progressives too, I did not believe it, now I am starting to see it..you see Meghan McCain say she is a “Progressive Republican” you see the daughter of Bush saying she is for Gay Marriage, what the hell has happened to the GOP
Well, we know from past history that it’s always the one the leftists trash the most that they’re the most afraid of defeating them. We need to inform the GOPelites that they too can (and will) be replaced if they don’t get behind the Tea Party Patriots, ala Sarah Palin. And the withholding of campaign donations to everyone in the GOP that trashes Palin is just a ‘good start’.
The more vile and deranged they become, the closer she is to triumph. All those lefty twits and their pet establishment republican sheep are nothing more than a collective version of Baghdad Bob...they can say whatever they want, but we see the tanks racing thru the streets behind them...
I see that as a compliment to Palin.
Yeah, and of course, the progressives (rabid leftists) are holding up RomneyCare as a prime example of why Obamacare is constitutional, since RomneyCare is a state-wide version of the same federal program.
Hell, we’ve known of this infiltration and infestation for decades now. Look at how Snake/Maverick McCain has ‘reached across the aisle to his DemocRat friends’ on too many occasions. He was the Rep’s very own version of the Manchurian Candidate.
We’re at war here, folks. A war with our enemies within. And I have a very bad feeling that we’re about to be in a really hot war with our enemies without. The timing is anything BUT concidental. It is, however, convenient for our enemies, both within and without. With Barry Soetero as our CIC, we are truly in deep ‘stuff’....
and it ain’t snow I’m talkin about.
But ALL will seek her endorsement if she doesn’t run....
I don’t intend to support anymore beltway BS!
And so is Murkowski...
1.) She Doesn't run, (and as things stand now) Obama wins reelection.
2.) She runs against the establishment and their lapdog media and wins.
3.) Another “Moderate” is the party nominee and offers the VP to Palin as a means of solidifying the base.
4.) She runs and is so trashed by the establishment her only recourse is to run as a Tea Party Independent.
As a Conservative, I see two of the four options as acceptable, but favor #2. That's how disgusted I am with the Republican establishment.
Maybe, scenario #4 is a battle which has to happen?
The establishment republicans are NOT afraid she would lose.
Their fear is she would WIN.
This would screw it up for Jeb in 2016, which is all the establishment (Bushies) are concerned with.
They don’t care about the country, it’s all about them getting their gravy train back (as I’m sure a Palin administration would have little to do with all these idiots who trash her)
People who fall for this “she’s unelectable’ propaganda are sheep unable to think for themselves. She is TOO electable, and that scares the hell out of them.
This might not be a bad outcome, all things considered.
Are there other Conservatives I'm forgetting?
The problem will be Huckabee though, who for some reason garnered much undeserved primary support last time, even as he singled out the most conservative candidates in the race for abuse.
He needs to be discouraged early on this time before he can again knock the most conservative from the race.
Well, considering the rabid opposition she is facing, coming not just from the leftist main/lamestream media and the rabid leftists in government, but also from the Republican Party elites, she has an uphill battle ahead. An almost impossible feat.
If I were her, I’d say no thanks and just be a vocal sideliner. It’s a thankless job being President, despite all the good you do. Just look at how Reagan is STILL demonized by the left most of the time, while being held up as an icon and inspiration when it’s convenient or when they’re trying to ‘appear’ less extreme left. Look at how BJ Clinton has taken credit for the Republicans’ forcing him to balance the budget. Look at how Obama is now taking credit for Iraq, after years of the leftists, him included,
bashing Bush for liberating the Iraqis. It’s almost a lose-lose position, and one that takes a superhero strength of purpose. I would hope for a Palin win, but the realist in me does not see it happening.
I see a very long, dark period in history ahead for all of us. I wish it were not so.
Exactly, her first books goes into detail about her efforts. She truly has a servant's heart. She wants the best for all Americans. The RINOs and weak Republicans will in the end do as much damage as the left.
The beltway crowd (left and right) is in total fear of Sarah. They know that Sarah will expose them as the destructive parasites that they are. Sarah, with the help of regular Americans supporting her, can stop the elites from enslaving us with their rules and regulations.
RR may have been a tinkle talker, but they knew he would hire them even after they were such liars about his intellect.
She could be called PP (porcelain puke),and it might seem worthy of her.
Jeb Bush ??? Hahahahaha .....
He’s nuts if he thinks any self respecting republican would vote for him, now or in 2016, or anytime in the future.
George H.W. Bush is one thing, George W. Bush is another, and Jeb is something entirely different.
Like the Kennedy clan, they did their service, and it is time for them to retire from politics back into the private sector.
Works fer me...
They do not want her because they cannot stay on the gravy train and push the party to the left with her. She will remove what is left of their cojones. They let her take all the slings and arrows when they were the huge minority,now that she has got the Republicans back on the road to recovery they want to drown her,and take over. They can dunk their heads in the toilet bowl three times and bring them out twice.
Those same good ol' boys threw Joe Miller over for Murkowski.
Its about removing a threat, no matter what form the threat takes.
The Government Party is terrified of American patriots.
Sarah Palin is a photogenic, media-savvy, experienced, successful Reaganesque patriot who is capable of mobilizing millions of other patriots and millions of dollars in support of American patriot goals, e.g. the removal from power of The Government Party.
She's the mongoose to The Government Party's nest of pythons.
Because in many ways, she is responsible for waking the conservative "silent majority" in America. People who otherwise weren't terribly aware of what was going on around them (especially women) relate to her.
Sarah Palin as best I can see is a nice, NORMAL lady, which I suppose is what’s “wrong” with her. She’s not a freak like most libtards. She doesn’t appear to have any skeletons in her closet, which means that she can’t be blackmailed. And she’s not one of the good ol’ boys club.
She seems smart enough to be able to nuke obama and his healthcare proposal in less than 146 characters in a twitter “tweet”.
She’s not a marxist, elitist, America hating loser of a wealthy family. And everything she and her husband have they have earned of their own hard work.
She may not be the best president ever, but what is the infatuation with being some “history making” leader? Why is just being a good steward of the ship of state, not enough anymore? Can we get someone who loves America for being America, and wants to have the USA maintain its rightful place as the leader of the free world. Can they put their own ego’s aside for the good of the nation?
Maybe that’s why they hate Palin so much is that she is not an egomaniac who just wants to do what’s right and will let the chips fall where they may.
I’m tired of taking care of the poor, everywhere in the world, at the expense of my own family at home. Let the poor suffer, like they should. Being poor is supposed to be a crappy life. That is why it is to be avoided. Let work bring the reward of prosperity. Racial minorities are ill served by the Afirmative Action hires that come in and do a piss poor job, get promoted (because they can’t be fired lest the management be accused of racism) to do even worse. The current resident of the White House is a glimmering example if how this kind of incompetence, moves up the ladder, only to fail on even grander scales and at greater expense to those they claim to serve.
Ah! I get it!
You were observing what we are seeing in the media. I thought it was a false dichotomy.
In that context it is a very good observation -- no seems to be tepid nor objective when it comes to Mrs. Plain.
One big problem this country has is that there are elitists in both parties who actually think they're better than us, and look down their noses at people who (gasp!) earned degrees at non-elite universities or (horrors!) have only a high school diploma (that's 73% of Americans.)
>> “Or, you can analyze her strengths and weaknesses and come to a conclusion on her viability as a candidate.” <<
They did, and found her to be the only truly viable candidate, then redoubled their attack.
Somehow my point failed your understanding?
