Jesse Ventura: Sarah Palin will win
The State Column ^ | April 3, 2011 | Staff

Posted on 04/03/2011 4:26:33 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura, in an upcoming appearance on “Piers Morgan Tonight,” says former Alaska governor Sarah Palin will win the 2012 Republican presidential nomination.

“She’s the type of person that certainly will be controlled by the status quo and the power structure. So she’d make a perfect candidate for them, she’ll do what she’s told,” Mr. Ventura says.

The former Minnesota governor noted Ms. Palin’s reality show and her current contributions on Fox News, saying the Republican Party is “grooming” her.

The former Alaska governor has yet to announce a presidential campaign. Ms. Palin has noted in the past her interest in seeking the nomination.

In making the prediction, Mr. Ventura seemed to overlook two potential candidates from his home state: Rep. Michele Bachmann and former governor Tim Pawlenty. Both Ms. Bachmann and Mr. Pawlenty have noted their intentions to seek the presidency

As for Rep. Bachmann, we don't usually elect House members to the White House (only happened once in a four-way race) and Tiny Tim has the charisma of Henry Gibson or Wally Cox.

Gov. Palin "will do what she's told" he said? Are there two Sarah Palins?

Remember, he was Jesse “The Body” Ventura. He was never known as Jesse “The Brain” Ventura.

Agree on “do what she’s told..” She supported McLame for Senate and dismisses the Obama Birth Certificate issue....

Don’t give me this, “she had to pay McCain back...” ...Sarah brought many millions to his campaign that would not have happened with any other candidate...thath was payback enough.

I couldn’t believe she would not support J.D. Hayworth and here is McCain’s daughter continuously ripping ...and then her loser daughter.....

We can do better than Ms. Palin folks...no women nominees...remember the definition of a misogynist...it is a man that hates women almost as much as women hate women. No conservative woman - with decent looks can win...the old hags, the jealous b*tches will shred her.

I'm relieved that Jesse has weighed in like this.

This meat-tube knows as much about Sarah Palin as he does about The Philosophy of Physics. To assert as though it were fact that "She'll do what she's told," and that ""They're grooming her for the nomination right now..." just proves him to be the brain-dead ape that he appears to be on TV.

What a complete numbskull. The GOP are "grooming her" for the nomination? By assaulting her every time they get the chance? Pretty inobvious "grooming" there, Jess. Real "sub-rosa."

Whadda frikkin tool. He's a pathetic joke, and a jealous moron.

“Gov. Palin “will do what she’s told” he said? Are there two Sarah Palins?”

I was thinking the same thing. From what I’ve seen/heard of Palin she is not a follower.

Which state was he governor of and how does that state look now that he's been out of office and the effects of his “leadership” can be judged? Anyone care to speak up and defend his record?

I know the value of "winnability" for a candidate, and Jesse "the Body" should know more than any that celebrity status and "novelty" in a candidate can go a long way towards the goal. But I wonder why substance in candidates has taken a far back seat for the past several election cycles? I find this a very disturbing trend. After all, it's what gave us zerØ.

Discounting all celebrity and novelty capital, there are very few candidates who have come forward who have what it takes to be president. John Bolton and Mike Pence are two who come to mind. The others, many of who possess great qualities and potential, don't even come close. Sorry, Sarah and Michelle.

I don't recall Bachmann announcing her intentions to run.

Anybody?

What putrid rocks have you guys been hiding under waiting for a Palin thread so you could spew your verbal diarrhea?

We took a poll here on FreeRepublic a couple months ago to see who we wanted for President. Sarah Palin won with 86% of the vote.

If you want to join the "Lie about and smear Palin and her kids" perverts over on KOS, I suggest you make the move sooner rather than later. You're in for some rough sledding here. Just a little underserved, friendly advice to a total smeg-brain.

"She’s the type of person that certainly will be controlled by the status quo and the power structure."

And Jesse is the type of person that will certainly make mindless generalizations while mugging for the cameras.

Well, the candidates that won't do what they are told (Ron Paul and Gary Johnson) won't do what FReepers tell them, either. :)

No, there aren’t two Palins. Only one (lucky) imbecile who also happened to be a former governor from the socialist state of Minnesota.

I think the lady has the qualifications and the skills to (at the very worst) make one hell of a run for it. And have for a while. And would entirely regardless of what Jesse Ventura thought about her. That said, I don’t see any sign whatsoever that she’s the type of person The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Waste thinks she is. She in fact seems to have had most of her success not being the type of person that just goes along with the powers that be. And perhaps because of that, the GOP power structure has been...and I’m trying to be kind...somewhat less than universally enthusiastic about the prospect of her running for the presidency, let alone winning it. The idea that that’s all a bluff and they’re actually grooming her for 2012...Jesse, I say this because I care. If you don’t get help at Hazelden, get help somewhere.

I fully agree. There are fundamental differences between men and women that matter. That this even needs to be articulated on a conservative website is ridiculous; it's a conservative axiom. Does it even need to be pointed out that the converse of this is radical feminism?

Differences that, on the whole, make a man more qualified than a woman for this highest office in the land doesn't mean there are not exceptions. Thatcher was an extraordinary leader of Great Britain, with the intestinal fortitude of a man, but she was a rare exception. Yes, there are more qualified men than Palin or Bachmann, but there's now a strange, novel type of "political correctness" in conservatism that makes say so verboten.

At least, Tribemike1, you stuck with the issue and gave your reasons why you do not agree with Jesse.

And very good points you made too

Sounds like a response you'd hear from a Dummycrat.

Ever see the YouTube video "Libya vs Iraq"?

You should check it out. I just quickly thought of that just now. LOL!

We are not going to win without facts and information to use as rebuttals.

Agree....one of the worst ideas the republic fell for was women’s suffrage and my wife agrees.

You see, women tend to vote for “Prom king” while men vote for “commander-in-chief”. Women elected Clinton and Obama...they were prom-king like.

Also, of course it isn’t scientific, but many women acquaintences I have ....at work, church, etc....the vast majority do not like Sarah Palin. Guess what...100% of them are what you would call plain janes...not attractive at all. They see Sarah, very good looking, nice husband...and throw rocks at her. Women tend to cat fight over nothing.

Put up an ugly broad on the left...women will support her 60-40...republicans cannot win at that game.

We tried trailblazing with the Supreme Court, Condy Rice, ...it did us no good politically.

I was just pointing out your affliction for the rest of the FReepers. Rumptool.

“Agree on “do what she’s told..” She supported McLame for Senate and dismisses the Obama Birth Certificate issue....

Don’t give me this, “she had to pay McCain back...” ...Sarah brought many millions to his campaign that would not have happened with any other candidate...thath was payback enough.”

But she thought he should be president, and campaigned for and with him? Is it harder to be senator than it is to be president? Or should she have announced “I was lying in the campaign, I don’t think anyone should support McCain?”

I’m sorry, this is a 100% bogus issue made up by people who need to justify to themselves whatever stupid reasons they have to dislike Sarah Palin.
