Enough! Most Say They're Over Sarah Palin, Poll Shows (So we wrote yet another story about her)
NBC News ^ | July 9, 2014 | Mark Murray

Posted on 07/09/2014 1:21:48 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

More than half of the country has a message for former Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin: enough.

That's the result from a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg poll in which 54 percent of voters say they've heard enough from Palin and would prefer that she be less outspoken in political debates.

That includes nearly two-thirds of Democrats, a majority of independents, and even nearly four-in-10 Republicans.

And the results come as Palin has called for President Barack Obama's impeachment.

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

But Palin isn't the only former politician voters wish would stay away from politics. Fifty-one percent of voters say they've heard enough from former presidential candidate Jesse Jackson; 45 percent say they've heard enough from former Vice President Dick Cheney; 43 percent say they've heard enough from former House Speaker (and presidential candidate) Newt Gingrich; 40 percent say they've heard enough from former Vice President Al Gore; and 32 percent say they've heard enough from former President Bill Clinton....

Another “The End of Sarah Palin” story?

Haven’t we gotten one of these every month for the last 6 years or so?

JON SCOTT, HOST: Rick, you suggested that folks on the West Coast are laughing at us East Coasters. The question is, you know, are there too many balls in the air here for journalists to cover them all? Stewart Stevens in the Daily Beast noted this: “…There is an entire class of journalists so invested in a certain moral and ethical image of the president that its members are unable to entertain facts that might tarnish that image.”

RICHARD GRENELL: You know, I think Jim is right. It’s growing in some circles and it’s not growing in others. Over at NBC, you have Mark Murray, who is the senior political editor over there. He went on MSNBC to say, you know, this story is not going to last the summer.

You know, the irony about this is is that Mark Murray, NBC senior political editor, he’s married to an Obama appointee. This Obama appointee is now the chief of staff at the FAA. So when you have someone at NBC kind of dismissing the story and trying to really push it off the front pages, you now know why because he’s getting pressure at home.

This is propaganda from the communists in the Administration, pure and simple.

The author is married to some horse faced Obama appointee who is Chief of Staff at the FAA.

And what was the result of the same question concerning Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, and others? What? Such polls were only taken for Palin?

So let’s take a poll over who should just shut up: Sarah Palin or MSNBC? I don’t think it would be very kind to the media.

Today’s Gallup poll shows the Clown at a 54% disapproval rating. So where is NBC’s story about America having “enough” of the Clown?

Next they'll ban stories about Palin by writing Fifty stories about the ban.
Then write 500 more stories about how the Ban on stories about Palin are not working.

They write dozens and sometimes hundreds of stories about her EVERY DAY! No one, save Mr. Obama, is written about that much in politics and government. Not Biden, Michelle, Hillary, Reid, Boehner, Pelosi, McConnell or any former president or vice president. And if you think the elites are not aware of this, you’re dreaming.

That call for impeachment stuck in craws on both sides of the isle. Governor Palin is the most powerful person on Earth judging by the amount of flak fired at her.

None of them do. It’s a sophomoric little trick they use to deny her any standing or gravitas. They’ll say “reality star” or “failed vice presidential candidate” or “half-term governor of Alaska” or some such but almost never give her the title they would any other former official, which is in their style book.

I don't know about powerful, but for certain sure, she's one of the bravest.

She's outright demanding impeachment on exactly right grounds of common sense and justice, and this close to calling the Republican party out for the fraud that it is.

Palin is brave and RIGHT. And expressing my sentiments exactly.

:She lives rent free in their minds 24/7.

She must really be getting on their last nerve if the White House had to send spear-catcher Mark Murray from the MSM Palace Guard to write this STERN COLUMN telling Palin to shut up.

Hey, Murray - nobody with half a brain watches your shoit channel. Get it?

More than half of the country has a message for former news channel NBC News: enough.

An NBC/WSJ/Annenberg poll? . . Are you kidding? Did Bill Ayres come up with the data? More on Annenberg here. Amazing. .

How about this?: "In 1995 Barack Obama was appointed as the first Chairman of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC), a “school reform organization”. What a joke..

Go Sarah!!

It is my prayer for Sarah to be included in high office, IE Senator, being the head of most any agency in Washington. ETC. She has the needed values, and the spunk to face them down and win every time. The medias have been dissing her since she first appeared on the national scene. Sarah has stood strong. Sarah is smart, brave, well spoken, and not deterred by their rhetoric. She is honest, strong and able to face them down. And WIN. That is a huge plus when we consider how she has been excoriated by the press at every level.

God Bless Sarah Palin, keep her protected, safe, and her family too, in Jesus name, amen.
