Skip to comments.Bush administration to blame...Sarah speaks
Posted on 11/09/2008 7:51:58 PM PST by winoneforthegipper
Q -- Why did your campaign lose? A -- I think the Republican ticket represented too much of the status quo, too much of what had gone on in these last eight years, that Americans were kind of shaking their heads like going, wait a minute, how did we run up a $10 trillion debt in a Republican administration, how have there been blunders with war strategy under a Republican administration.

I tend to agree with her. The Bush admin was hardly small govt conservatism.
Just in case anyone missed seeing this interview with Sarah,watch the interview at the link below. It is not cut into little pieces like some of the videos out there, and you dont have to listen to a reporter in the lead in. Sarah lets the media have it about the false accusations and she does it with such class! :)
Have you joined the Team Sarah web site and the Joe the Plumbers watchdog web site? I have and will be ready for supporting only real conservative candidates in 2010 and 2012. Hoping Sarah runs for President in 2012!
Sarah - 2012!!!!!!
Yeah. Saw that.
I love you Sarah. OK you Bush defender attack Palin. Wake up. The election was a disaster,
“Seven-year-old Piper Palin walked around with an apron and a notebook, asking people what they wanted to drink.”
LOL! I’m sorry, I’m just totally “in the tank” for Piper Palin!
To use a word that she used often in her recent radio interview:
Piper is just totally “AWESOME”!
Build a better conservative party and all voters will beat a path to vote for you. During the next four years, we need to build a better conservative party. Obama’s failed Socialist programs should help revive a solidly built GOP conservative party.
Bush, did the best he could, with what he had. What he did was very good, what he didn't was very bad.
Alas, history will latch onto the very good! That will take a few years though...lol
Yeah, read the same thing. I think we keep that one but think we lose AK and MN.
I hope Sarah Palin isn’t throwing President Bush under the bus. She of all people, besides President Bush himself, should know how the media can skewer and rake you over the coals to shape public perception.
Clinton didn't have the line item veto either. I believe the first time he attempted to use it the GOP got it ruled unconstitutional.
Sarah 2012. Piper 2032.
Looking back, Romney would have been better at being able to get HIS message out and it would have been harder to pin Romney to Bush...But that is all arm chair quarter back now...
Also, NEXT time the TIME endorses a Republican in the PRIMARIES, STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Yet I am amazed how many here will defend Bush blindly.
That is a phrase that we should be hearing NLT about March and certainly by summer.
She’s right. Bush sucks. And his disasterous administration beget us Obama.
Yep. We do anything blindly and we get what we just got on Nov 4
The GOP and GOP voters learned NOTHING from 2006. And we all pay.
I blame the US Meida #1, Seditionist Democrats #2, Weak Ass US Congress under GOP control #3, and GW Bush #4.
He was a fine president, but made some politically bad moves (Immigration, SS Reform was a cluster, still born Tax Reform, ect) he alienated his base. Had he gov. by first principles he would be looking at 47-52% approval. Had he had a congress that stood up for something other than Abernoff and the Dukester, he would have been in the 60%+ and we would probably have had a better candidate then McCain the Backbiter.
If a Repub can not defend Free Market Capitalism in the face of a Marxist, he is aint gonna turn out the base. Simple as that.
What would have been the deficit without Sarah?
Ehh...I’m no fan of bashing a friend to appease an enemy.
I can dig why Governor Palin is being blunt, but I also think President Bush is loved by many people, his role is not over yet I think.
Romney had Mormon baggage....
hell...just look up an FLDS thread to see many FR views on mormanism......shew...
Had Al Gore won his recount in Florida ...what would you have ? I think $30 trillion in debt.. and 2 or more genuine quagmires... maybe a couple more 9/11 s and God knows what else
is already in high gear...
Yeah, she got it right. Bush strayed and conservatives paid.
I disagree, Bush does not “suck”, on Social Issues and National Defense, President Bush did a fine job, in my view, one of the best we have had in decades.
Fannie Mae went bellyup, lack of oversight by the Dhims caused it, the MSM refused to go after those crooks and GWB caught the blame.
I’m missing something here.....Bush had the line item veto? Can you elaborate on that statement?
Gov. Palin is right.
If algore, won?
We would not have a country....by now I would think we would be a EU step tread?
It shows what the Democrats will give you if you “reach across the aisle.”
I don’t dig it at all.
Bush failed to use the Bully pulpit and bring things to the people. He instead let the media and the left use the pulpit day in and day out to trash him.
It would have been a different story had he challenged them daily on their propaganda.
Had that happened the republicans would have won overwhelmingly in 2002 and again in 2004. The incompetence of Gore would have made that inevitable.
Yes, well in politics, you have to pick your battles.
The media created so much, people listened.
Clintoon presided during the information revolution and gutting the Defence dept (becsue we "won" the cold war.) Trillions of dollars in new businesses started, Microsoft, etc. Hell, The Bent One even benefited from Enron and all those other phony companies. A chimpanzee could balance a budget with that new revenue stream back then.
Iget mad every time I hear those idiots taking credit for stuff they were actually against.
there is a time to be politik, and a time to be real, we just got shellacked, was she supposed to lie about the reasons for the posterizing we just suffered?
Bump for later read.
Sorry, I forgot that is was a women’s organization. They need to have a “Guys For Sarah” section too. I joined so will ask about it! My hubby would join for sure as he just loves Sarah!
Good. They were taking the line about Palin not knowing if Africa was a continent or country and playing some game they called "Are You Smarter Than Sarah Palin." Forget them.
