Nobody's endorsements work 100% of the time, Chris.
How is Obama’s record on endorsements?

Waiting for the inevitable posts from PDS sufferers and 100% purists complaining about Sarah Palin’s two bad or questionable endorsements.
4, 3, 2, 1 .....
We took a look at Palin's recent endorsements and found that if there's any rhyme or reason to them, it's that they're as idiosyncratic and unpredictable as the former governor herself.
LOL, Leftists are so predictable. Twenty thousand years of the same old crap.
Rhyme and reason? Try the original Constitution and beating Hillary.

Personally I have not agree with all her endorsements..BUT..I do think I see what she doing and if so she far more political savvy than people know ... she building a broad base of political alliances, a wide range of people in her political debt
It the flip side of becoming a big tent moderate...
You do not have to a be a big tent moderate to win..
You just got to get big tent moderates to be in your political debt and collect when you make your move....
She been studying Reagan...

After a stretch in which an endorsement from Sarah Palin was considered a rarity, the former Alaska governor has become something of an endorsement machine as of late. this is because the candidates are now seeing the power of Palin and are flocking to her to seek her endorsement. Its simple at the beginning of the year the establishment with Mitt in the lead cheering them on had a narrative that Palin was divisive. that she would do more harm than good for a candidate because she would get the left all bent out of shape. therefore the word went out to avoid Palin. However after the book tour some of that thinking changed. then came Ny23rd and the response to Palin's endorsement was out of this world. then other underdogs started to call on Palin and when she endorsed these underdogs they surged in the polls. Now the floodgates are open and Palin power is a known fact and now the candidates are beating down the door to get her endorsement. It's been a long year for Palin she has done what few other politicans have ever done. she is now the kingmaker in the GOP and the elites know it. You don't hear anyone dissing Gov Palin from the elites anymore do you?

the comments at the post crack me up. they show their stupidity on so many levels. a lot of them think Palin’s endorses have all lost. they compare her to hitler and then say know one cares about her thoughts if she has any.
Its like reading 6th graders talking about calculus. they simply are clueless lefties. Which gives me hope that they are going to be surprised very much come NOV 2012. They have swallowed the marxist’s talking points hook line and sinker. They can not even fathom that Palin has tremendous support in the country.
Hopefully they will believe their own lies enough to try to get her nominated like an operation choas from the DNC think she will be an easy defeat for them.
Little do they know or understand.

Is this what passes for political analysis at the Washington Post? That is sad.

I’d like to note/save this article with proper keywords, but take a look at them!
Who the heck has been crapping around with the keywords?

Why does a reporter care who a housewife endorses?
You’d better knock it off with the keyword spamming.

Back in March Mr Vander Platts had this to say about Governor Palin:
Where I live in Sioux City, Iowa, I’m not Sarah Palin, I can’t see Russia, but I can see South Dakota. You know who ranks No. 1 in the country for hospitable business environment? South Dakota,” he said. “I tell people all over the state, as soon as we make Sioux City, Iowa, competitive with North Sioux City, South Dakota, we’ve opened up this state for business.
As a result , he now has to deal with this:
Iowa Poll: A Register Exclusive Since 1943
Former Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad holds a 2-to-1 edge over his closest rival for the Republican nomination for governor, and is seen as the strongest candidate on the attributes most important to voters in Tuesdays primary for governor, according to The Des Moines Registers Iowa Poll.
According to the poll, Branstad stands out as the best in the three-way GOP race at bringing new jobs, cutting government spending and being able to beat Democratic Gov. Chet Culver qualities the poll respondents identified as top priorities.
A solid majority 57 percent of likely GOP primary voters say they expect to vote for Branstad, a former four-term governor returning to campaign politics after a 12-year hiatus.

From what was posted I took away from the sentiment remaining with respect to FreeRepublic endorseement (as if that’s the only acceptible nor viable perspective / viewpoint).
So, what’s left?
