Posted on 04/13/2012 6:17:27 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Sarah Palin, in an interview with Breitbart News, responded to Fox News chief Roger Ailes remark that she had no chance of becoming president.
Palin called the Fox executives comment interesting. She continued:
I havent heard all of his remarks, but I wonder if he is aware that the same thing was said about me when I ran for city council, mayor, and eventually governor. No doubt many people who are told they cant do something will work that much harder, and they succeed. Maybe you guys should send him a copy of Steve Bannons The Undefeated. The theme of Steves film isnt about me, but about the idea of not letting others dictate ones path in life and never giving up when youre fighting for something precious like our exceptional nation and our childrens futures. So, would you send a copy of The Undefeated to him?
Mediaite reached out to Fox News, and received this response from Ailes:
When I hired most of the Republican contributors, none of them had any immediate prospects of becoming President I wasnt referring to any of their long-term prospects, including Governor Palin. I hired all of them because they made for good television at the time. Sarah Palin is young and nobody can predict the future.
Fox has only one possible choice for president.
An influential person in my life told me I’d never be a good guitarist because my handspan was to small. Guess what?
Oops—to small=too small
When she runs for president in 2016 and wins, she’ll show him.
Why does she let him get under her skin?
So having a firm grasp of the obvious is wrong? Geeez
I think this has more to do with her appearamce on another network than anything else...
“When she runs for president in 2016 and wins, shell show him.”
Make that 2012 in a brokered convention!
Sarah Palin is young, Roger Ailes is not.. and I’m a patient man.
Is Faux News committing suicide on purpose or are they just stupid? I don’t get it. They are mass producing customer dissatisfaction.
There isn’t going to be a brokered convention.
“There isnt going to be a brokered convention.”
In that case enjoy 4 more years of obama!
Fox News chief Roger Ailes ----> Chris Wallace RomneyBOT
Fox News chief Roger Ailes ----> Hyper-biased FOX NEWS ProRomney Panel on Sundays
Fox News chief Roger Ailes ----> McGinniss has been friends with Roger Ailes for 44 years
Conclusion: SMELLS LIKE MITT
Get a small guitar?
There was something that convinced Palin not to run after all the groundwork and infrastructure she and her paid consultants laid down over the summer. I’m convinced it was her high unfavorables.
The difference between her and Newt is that Palin is an intelligent person who knows when there’s nothing to be gained from running a losing campaign. Newt ignored his high unfavorables and wound up in debt. That’s why Palin might someday be president and Newt never will.
You missed the “o” because your handspan was too small...LOL
Bet you’re a helluva guitar player...God Bless
Both may be POTUS.
The problem is Romney exists only to make Obama
pRes_ _ent. Romney is ineligible like Obama
and supports ObamaCARE/RomneyCARE.
The GOP has NO chance with Bishop Romney.
Of course not, but you may find it is better to let people figure that out on their own. It seems a lot of folks are not ready to accept the political realities in front of them yet and are hanging on to things like the "brokered convention" fantasy. The general election campaign has already begun and most everyone will accept this fact over the course of the next month or two.
*snorkle chortle* :)
it would have been a historic landslide.
what, you became a riter instead?
You mastered the ukulele?
Reckon anybody ever said that to Django?
The problem is that we did not get Ailes’ complete statement regarding Palin.
I think he REALLY said, “She’ll never be President.....IF I HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT!” /Sarc.
Well, she didn’t RUN for President... that might have made it a bit more likely. lol.
Maybe a whole lot.
If that happens, I vote Republican for the first time in 8 years.
Ronald Reagan was bad mouthed continuously by the press during the Presidential election of 1980. In October of 1980 his poll numbers were around 30% - he had very high negatives.
Reagan was elected President in November 1980, because the public finally had a chance to see and hear him themselves without the MSM filtering his message.
The same goes for Sarah Palin and Newt Gringrich.
Newt Gingrich has been smeared and lied about for a very long time, mostly by Washington insiders keen to derail his plans for changing how Washington does business and by Democratic Party operatives trying to divert attention from the serial rapist named William Jefferson Clinton.
Okay, then why did Newt, whom I like policy wise, let stupid “conventional wisdom” about him linger for years and years? I was 16 years ago when he stepped down as Speaker.
Did it take that long finally take on the lie he “served divorce papers to his wife dying of cancer in the hospital”?
Let me guess, you are Eric Clapton?
Hey Roger, while you’re jumping the shark, say hi to Ann Coulter.
Maybe she figured out people are just to fickle? One moment they are with you and the next they are not.
To bring it into sports, Doug Flutie my favorite QB said he does not read the papers even when good things are said about him, because he knew that the moment he had a bad game, it would be said of him that he was to short and that he had a weak arm or something.
Well whether she could have won or not isn’t really relevant now. For her reasons she chose not to run and now we will be stuck with Romney as the only alternative to the marxist in the WH who is determined to destroy the country he hates.
She was positioned to win the nomination and couldn’t commit, why will 2016 or 2020 be any different we will be in worse shape because she didn’t step up for whatever reason.
“Reckon anybody ever said that to Django?”
They may not have had a chance - I think he was a certified whiz by about 12!
No, that would be “Slow Hand” not “Small Hand”.
Sarah Palin will run against Hillary Clinton in 2016 and win the presidency. After eight years of Chairman Obama in Washington DC and the United States turning into Eastern
Europe, no way another democrat will win. And no way will the establishment be allowed to run another liberal republican.
Guess all the nastiness towards Palin worked in the end. Sad.
Oh yes there is, the same way they did it in the old Soviet Union.
none of them had any immediate prospects of becoming President
You play a ukulele?
Then stop the primaries right now. What’s the point of carrying on. Stop the farce of having them at all.
Way too simple an interpretation. Both Palin and Newt made their choices for their own personal reasons and we may never know all the dynamics. Newt stayed to try to thwart Romney, which I find noble. Especially after all the smears andother snubs because he's the only real conservative we have left. Just because someone stays in beyond the event horizon does not mean there isn't something good about it.
When she runs for president in 2016 and wins ...
She won’t. Obizmal will be President for Life by then ...
The only method that has proven to be effective against tyranny is the use of brute force, which in this case means exercising our constitutional rights to enforce the rule of law.
After which the cycle will begin anew ...
