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?
Dubya had continuous and continual media and (for example, code pink) assaults. IIRC, wierdos camped out near his Texas home. There was the Plame fiction, the late-night "comedy" routines that would make up quotes so Dubya would sound stupid, the implied (again, IIRC) movie script bad things, and much, much more. Yet Dubya remained undaunted, he persevered to prosecute the war on terror, and kept us safe.
Dubya never, ever would have resigned. He was, and remains, courageous under (metaphorical) fire.
Sarah was so unfairly treated (as you rightly point out.)
I wish that Sarah would have remained courageous, and not have should have resigned.
That she did resign her governorship, however, disqualifies her from the position of Commander in Chief. I wish I could put this in a more positive light.
I think you just made seaplaner’s point. Think those attacks will end once she declares? They’ll get worse.
I like Sarah Palin too, just can’t see the stars aligning for her. My wife a Republican from birth dislikes her because the wife calls her a quitter and media opportunist.
There are lot’s of hurdles placed in Sarah’s Presidential quest, many self constructed, I believe Sarah is much, much more of an effective leader from where she is.
She has the power to inspire folks in a good way. Perhaps one of her protege’s will be able to finish what she started, like a relay race uses the fastest for last.
