She is, however, just not presidential material.
Sarah (who was under tremendous media attack at the time) chose to resign from the governorship of Alaska in 2009.
Again, I really, really like Sarah, but she was not able to maintain in a difficult situation; and, the media attacks on a GOP president have been, and would be, much worse.
George Dubya Bush managed to maintain his dignity (and courageously so) during eight years of media siege that was worse than the (admittedly awful) Palin attacks.
For a GOPer, the WH kitchen gets horribly hot, and if one can't take it, then one shouldn't consider it.
Again, I like Sarah. I do. She is just not pres material.
(Donning asbestos undies.)
Remind me: Did President Bush have to defend himself against dozens of frivilous ethics complaints and lawsuits out of his own pocket while he was either president or governor of Texas?
I've got to agree. When I watched her acceptance speech in 2008, I thought I was watching the next Ronald Reagan. I was wrong. I was watching the next Ross Perot.
Like Perot, Palin is a patriot, and good person with good ideas. Like Perot, Palin appeals to the average working American.
Unfortunately, like Perot, Palin folded under pressure. Yes, I know all the reasons why, and from a family viewpoint maybe Perot and Palin were both right. But yet they folded. Neither person showed the toughness necessary under assault.
“I like Her ,but,,,”
“She’s Just Not,,,”
Stand up for Her Message and bury these Chicago Thugs in their own garbage.
Stand like You got a Pair.
This winey crap is disgusting .
Regrettably, until she proves otherwise it appears that you are right.
Governor Sarah Palin, was inundated with frivolous law suits, on going which she was paying a million dollars or more her personal monies (for the lawyer costs,) to pay for and it didn't stop. How much money would any of us be willing to waste in this way.
It was a smart move. A brave move. "A common sense conservative" move. Wise. MO Sarah has my vote ...
Bush and Palin were two entirely different kinds of Republicans. Bush could endure any of the barbs thrown at him because he was surrounded/protected by family and wealthy establishment politicians. Palin was in the mix because McCain needed a cover for his political blabber. Palin in no manner had the political opportunity the Bush family had. With this said I believe there are persons as good as Palin if not better in some ways to be POTUSA.
