It’s not “presidential-esque” Mr. Ambinder. The word you’re searching for is PRESIDENTIAL full stop.
And she's been dead-on in her critiques.
She seems to be able to simplify otherwise obscure situations (e.g., death panels). Remarkable woman, remarkable person.
And beautiful, to boot.
That’s why the LSM keeps going after her...they KNOW she’s the best.
I doubt that Obama will be able to measure up to Sarah’s message about Tucson. The TOTUS will need to be at warp 5 for him to compete with Ms Palin’s comments.
Barry’s big “make or break” speech will be tonight. His political career is going to hinge on whether he can come across as a great uniter. At least that’s what the “media” has been saying.
I have little doubt that she will be a very successful candidate in the 2012 Republican Presidential Primaries.
It was a remarkable speech IMO and the timing was brilliant.
And what have we heard from the other presidential hopefulls? Oh yes, Pawlenty said he wouldn’t have used that bullseye map.
She was Presidential. The time has come to increase the rhetoric. Pump up the volume of the depiction of these liberals as parasites and moochers. DO NOT TONE DOWN!! TONE UP!!!
I agree. It was her very best appearence yet. Very Presidential, indeed.
Let’s compare Sarah Palin’s character and behavior to Hussein’s.
Just this evening it was revealed that Hussein is giving FREE T-SHIRTS out at the “Thriving” EVENT (that should be “solemn funeral” but dems can’t help themselves).
Free funeral t-shirts.
FUNERAL FAIL, ZERO!!!
Better than anyone else I’ve heard on the matter. Although I did enjoy Jonah Goldberg’s brevity in calling the proposed speech legislation ‘sand-poundingly stupid.’
Sarah Palin has been the most presidential-esque Republican since Reagan. That’s why the elites hate her. They’re jealous.
There is a reason for that; her presidency is inevitable.
That's why the Loughner-Left goes insane every time her name is mentioned.
How can she be elevated any more than she already is? It’s literally impossible to be more elevated than she is. She’s up at Everest while most are still way down at the base camp.
That said, as a fan of hers I have to say I don’t get the solo video thing. I think it comes off as a bit cold/distant and doesn’t really have the personal connection.
That’s one thing Obama gets. He’s always in public, always before adoring crowds and cheering throngs. Even his race speech was before an audience and not just a video of him sitting down somewhere.(If it had been it would have come off much worse). Look to 2007. Hillary announces her candidacy on a video from her living room with just herself. Obama announces his before thousands of cheering supporters in Springfield, IL. Which came off better? Who won the nomination. He’s always being seen with people, always connecting, always being photographed and showed as the center of an adoring mass.
I think a statement in front of an audience is always better. Now, I realize she’s not going to call for some crowd to show up to see her talk about this. To her credit, Gov Palin also usually appears in public and has seen her share of adoring crowds.
In this case, I’d have just released the statement, I don’t really see what the point of the added video was. But, if people like it, great.
bump for later
CBS News is a joke.
This plaudit changes nothing.
Dianne Sawyer also described her as “almost presidential” tonight.
I’d vote for her twice
