Harold Ford Jr., A Democrat, Pumps GOP's Sarah Palin For President
The San Francisco Chronicle ^ | September 03 2010 | Zenophon Abraham

Posted on 09/04/2010 8:33:01 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

This space never has had anything negative to blog about Former Congressman Harold Ford Jr. until today. His statement about Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was so grating the television set was turned off.

Ford said that Palin was going to run for President and that she was "formidable." That was when this space wondered if Ford was being paid by a Republican operative.

Sarah Palin has so many errors and mistakes that will be tossed back at her in the middle of a presidential campaign it would be embarrassing. Ford saying she was "formidable" just gives hope to her foolish faithful. There's not much more to say there.(continued)

Like Obozo hasn’t made a ton of “errors and mistakes”. The MSM just refuses to report them. He’s a stupid, ignorant ass.

Ford has always struck me as a decent guy; especially considering how corrupt his family and party are.

If they cared about blunders, they would be more concerned with Obama and Biden.

Ha Ha! Don't you just love the concern this guy has for Palin supporters? He only wants to stop any embarrasment. He is so scared of Sarah running. I can almost see him shaking!

Like her friends are commies? MSM thrives on fear and intimidation.

May 2012 make the MSM null and void forever.

I like him (Ford) too. About this writer - if he really thought Sara was a loser he would be supporting her all the way. Maybe he thinks his readers aren’t smart enough to figure that out.

Yeah, but the risk was that Ford would gain power, and then he'd serve in a manner similar to his family history, not his own past history. And that his gaining power would enable his corrupt family to gain power.

(See "The Godfather", and put Harold Ford Jr. into Michael Corleone's role....)

I will say he always seemed reasonable, for a Dem. But that's for a Dem.

And I'll also say that the "Playboy Party at the Superbowl" slam against him when he ran for Senate was just stupid politics. It wasn't racist, but it was definitely "lowest common denominator" mudslinging. A single man going to a party where there are guaranteed beautiful women - who'd have thunk it?!?

Yeah, NO bias on this racist author’s part at all, nosireebob!

Is Ford sick? He’s looking pretty gaunt lately to me.

Ford would have been a much better 1st black POTUS. For beginners, he’s an American!

I think I spotted Harold Ford on a Sunday news show panel recently, but I didn’t pay attention to his looks. I recall that I quickly changed the channel. He’s living in NYC. That’s all I know.

Sarah Palin has so many errors and mistakes that will be tossed back at her in the middle of a presidential campaign it would be embarrassing.


They make a lot of assumptions based on the accumulated wisdom of the media. When they try to list those errors, they will have trouble.

-Balanced her budgets as governor
-Left AK with $8 billion rainy day fund and $1 billion education fund.
-Broke up CBC (Corrupt B*stards Club) of Republican pols and oil company execs.
-Reset profit sharing arrangements for use of AK resources.
-Got gas pipeline project approved that had been kicking around for decades.
-Got Exxon to finally drill at Pt Thompson lease that they had been holding as an investment.
-Told us in 2008 exactly who Obama was and what he was going to do.

None of these things are mistakes or errors. Her private life hasn’t shown many errors either. No divorces, ex-boyfriends, financial improprieties. She has been vetted better than any candidate in history. So, liberals, you may not have the weapons in your arsenal that you suppose.

I think folks are "catching on" ... the "race card" has no effect, "name calling" is finally being understood as a replacement for logic, etc. And when it comes to Sarah, all her "mistakes" are simply made up by the likes of Vanity Fair. I see something negative on Palin these days, I don't even waste the time to see if its true. All you have to do is catch FR about a week later, and there's the original author's retraction. (Thank you FReepers!).

When I'm told she's "not qualified" my standard answer is, "who would you vote for, Palin or Obama?" Usually that changes either the topic of the conversation or the mind of the person bringing it up. She may not be "perfect" but she's way ahead of whatever is in 2nd place!

Pant load alert, JR never met a tax hike he didn’t like, or a social program he didn’t vote for. We here in Memphis know him that well. ALL Ford’s are CORRUPT.
