Sarah Palin keeps getting everything right
PJ Tatler ^ | April 25, 2011 | Bryan Preston

Posted on 04/25/2011 9:19:47 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

For a silly hick snowbilly who doesn’t know anything, whom loving and tolerant liberals call a “special needs case” in honor of the new civility, Sarah Palin is establishing a track record on the issues that is, over the past year or two, without equal.

On Libya, Palin saw that indecision and lack of clear leadership would not do any good. We had to be in it to win it.

So what our president said at first, that our mission is to see Qaddafi go, he’s got to go, but then we’re told by one of his top advisers, the president’s top advisers, saying, well, no, really, Qaddafi is probably going to prevail on this. He’s probably going to prevail over the opposition. And then our president changes the tune again, saying, well, it’s not our mission to oust Qaddafi. A lot of confusion.

I would like to see, of course, as long as we’re in it — we better be in it to win it. And if there’s doubt, we get out. Win it means Qaddafi goes and America gets to get on out of there and let the people of Libya create their own government, choose their own leader. And America, no nation building. We get out. We take care of our affairs elsewhere.

On the Fed’s quantitative easing, Palin didn’t think it would do any good. She has been proven right.

Unemployment is still high. Shakespeare couldn’t come up with a better plot. But how in the world did Mrs. Palin, who is supposed to be so thick, manage to figure all this out so far ahead of the New York Times and all the economists it talked to?

She did this back in November in a speech at Phoenix, which the Wall Street Journal, in a laudatory editorial at the time, characterized as zeroing in on the connection between a weak dollar and rising prices for oil and food. “We don’t want temporary, artificial economic growth brought at the expense of permanently higher inflation which will erode the value of our incomes and our savings,” the Journal quoted Mrs. Palin as saying. “We want a stable dollar combined with real economic reform. It’s the only way we can get our economy back on the right track.” Now here is the New York Times quoting a raft of economists who have reached the conclusion that Mrs. Palin’s warning was right down the line.

Sarah Palin was cautious on Egypt, wanting to know who was likely to take power before the US insisted that Mubarak leave. She has been forceful on China, warning that its military buildup is a threat.

Meanwhile, the cerebral president with the fancy pants creases just keeps getting everything wrong. Everything he touches turns to crap. Even her website is now better than his.

Whodathunkit?

I just wish I could e-mail this to the millions of voters who still think Tina Fey is Gov. Palin and that Hollywood and the media have her pegged.

Sarah has wisdom that doesn’t come from an Ivy League school, but, from above.

I’m amazed at how stupid some Americans are when they parrot the liberal talking points and actually believe them. This is sad and makes me ashamed of some who think they’re smart.

No human being gets EVERYTHING right. Sarah Palin is human, not some plaster saint. How about setting realistic expectations instead of fantasy ones. If she is our nominee, the last thing I want is for conservatives to turn on her the first time she does something to disappoint them. Simply because she is human, it’s inevitable that she will.

Please show me in the article where it says she gets “everything” right and that she is a saint.

I go on various message boards and most of the local “conservatives”, i.e. RINO’s think Sarah would be a disaster in a Presidential bid because she is a lightweight intellectually or make innapropriate sexual comments. It’s not heartening to me, but I know Sarah has grit, and common sense. The USA needs common sense, and a sense of spirit and future that she brings anywhere she goes.

I think there is a destiny in front of her that we cannot predict or expect. POTUS? Other? Only time and Sarah Palin will show us.

Rush pointed out today three new books attacking her and her family--the Left will always tell us whom they fear.

Obama supports all Islamist risings against sectarian regimes, but did not support Iranian people against the ayatollah and the Holocaust-denier.

Obama continues his destruction of Christian America and her tradition of liberty and leadership.

Obama destroys our economy and recognizes Muslim holidays, but not Easter.

Sarah Palin presents as the authentic three-dimensional conservative:

Social: Life, marriage & family, Christian tradition;

Fiscal: Responsible spending, unrepressive taxation and regulation, free markets;

Defense: Strong military only committed for national interest.

She is the mirror of the agent of the Saudi-Soros-Soviet-Sino enemy.

And thus is continually reviled by the Babylons of the West and East Coasts.

It would be nice if the other GOp contenders would ever get ANYTHING right. Hey but thanks for bringing up another lefty talking point about St. Sarah. Daily Kos would be so proud.

I remember thinking while watching her acceptance speech at the 2008 Republican Convention: ‘How did a normal person get to this level of politics?’ I place Obama, McCain, Biden, Romney, etc., together in at least one subset of the human condition: politician. Palin strikes me as the anti-politician, and me likey that.

Wannabe intellectuals tend to complicate things. really smart people tend to simplify what looks complicated to others.
When you stick to basic principles, things are simple. When you try to find a loophole in basic principles, that is where the complications set in.
Palin does tend to simplify things and stick to basic principles. Reagan did the same and it is not that they are dumb, it is that they are smart enough to stick with what has been proven to work.

just like a star quarter back some people are just have god given talent. I remember in 2008 seeing a rookie with a gift. Like watching a Marino during his rookie year. you could see the potential and knew the longer he was in the game the better he would be.

When you try to find a loophole in basic principles, that is where the complications set in.

"People who pride themselves on their "complexity" and deride others for being "simplistic" should realize that the truth is often not very complicated. What gets complex is evading the truth."

Still my favorite quote by Dr. Thomas Sowell.

As to her dopiness, the article contains this jewel:

“We don’t want temporary, artificial economic growth brought at the expense of permanently higher inflation which will erode the value of our incomes and our savings,” the Journal quoted Mrs. Palin as saying. “We want a stable dollar combined with real economic reform. It’s the only way we can get our economy back on the right track.” Now here is the New York Times quoting a raft of economists who have reached the conclusion that Mrs. Palin’s warning was right down the line.

The truth of the matter is that S. Palin is brilliant.

To 4 - Perhaps wolfstar wasn’t referring exclusively to the article. See post 2 as an example. Do you, 2ndDivVet, believe Palin is being divinely guided?

One needn’t visit conservative web sites to witness any doubt in regard to Mrs Palin’s viability as a potential POTUS. One can see this amongst people in 3D. Question is, can she win them over? I believe she can. And I highly doubt Mrs Palin will label a person a “RINO” or be stricken with “PDS” if a person disagrees with her. It is wise not to confuse Sarah Palin with Sarah Palin Fanatics.

I believe that when President Palin takes the oath of office the psychology will radically shift in a way not experienced since the days of Reagan.

All our problems (or at least the pressing ones) are absolutely solvable if we have the resolve to do so. But it requires the type of leadership that inspires. Sarah Palin inspires.

Yes, it will once again be morning in America.

I love how these Sarahfraidycats come up with straw men to bolster their petty-to-nonexistent "reasons" for "being afraid of a Palin run."

Funnier still will be how much she will win by without what should have been the support of these political fags.

LMAO!!!

Mr Mark Levin, Esq. addressed Palin and Pervertico’s OCD with her during last night’s show. It is worth listening to on his site- about one third through the show (started during the second hour of his show).

Speaking of other GOPers; I got a solicitation letter from John Boehner, The Squeaker of the House today. It vaguely spoke of all the glorious things the Repubs will do for us if we just send then more money. ROUND FILE!

On a slightly different subject, $10 says if Trump meets Sarah in a debate he will remark about how beautiful she is....he won’t be able to help himself.
