Hey now, I’ve got some issues with her. If you had told me in September how the primary season was going to unfold up to February, I don’t think a more perfect scenario for Palin to get in could have been drawn up. I still don’t buy the whole reason for staying out. Some people say she was getting to many threats and trying to protect her family, yet has that stopped her from trying to bump heads with the establishment and hold some sway in the outcomes?
Also, I would have REALLY liked to see Sarah on stage debating Newt. All these Newtbots now promoting Newt, I wonder how strongly their support would have still been with Sarah in the race. Would Newt still be considered the world’s most brilliant elder statesman or would he go back to being reviled as the grumpy old RINO who sat on the couch with neurotic Nancy? My guess is the latter.
I mean come on, for all the supposed intelligence that Newt has, who would win a one on one debate on conservatism between he and Palin? I think the answer is pretty obvious.
Good grief. I like Sarah fine, but you’re not seriously going to say she could go up against Newt in a debate? Seriously?
Geeze. Take the blinders off.
Newt and Palin are extremely close biographically...middle class upbringing, common sense conservatives, patriotic spirits, have a streak of populism that pisses off the establishment elites, got slammed by the media as being worse than Hitler after they rose to national prominence, got attacked with bogus ethics charges by Democrats, and eventually resigned in part because of the constant harassment and in part because they had better financial opportunities outside of government once they became household names.
I just don’t see a reason to have them fight each other. They’d have the kind of dynamic Newt and Cain did. They would obviously like each other and agree on a lot, but Newt would win overall due to having a greater command of facts, figures and history.
it wouldn’t be much of a debate, because Newt & Sarah are cut from the same cloth....it’s difficult to understand why you like Sarah, but denigrate Newt. Herman & Newt are the reasons Sarah didn’t get it, because those two could carry the message. me thinks you are diametrically opposed to Sarah’s hopes, &/or you’re cornfused. & i’m from Missouri. please Show-Me where i’m wrong.
“I mean come on, for all the supposed intelligence that Newt has, who would win a one on one debate on conservatism between he and Palin? I think the answer is pretty obvious.”
Uhhh... No disrespecxt to Sarah, but Newt, hands down. While smiling and making her look good, too.
Sarah would thump Newt
Thanks for responding :)
