I’d like to see how any other Republican stands up under the same media knee capping that Sarah Palin endured. No one would have been able to keep smiling and keep standing after having such slim poured on them day in and day out. The worst they could do was the non-issue of “Troopergate”, which she has been completely cleared on by the state’s personnel board. And, let’s not forget her “crime” in purchasing a used second hand tanning bed. Oh, yeah, when the governor’s mansion was being re-plumbed, she charged the state lodging per diems and stayed in her Wasilla home rather than having the state pay more money to put her family up in a hotel or rental apartments. And then there was the “crime” of the RNC stylists who purchased $150,000 worth of clothes. All of it was bs. All of it is proof that these people want to destroy this woman’s future before she has the chance to come back and run on her own for higher office. And sadly many “conservatives” are only too happy to play along in the devouring of our of their own.
Don’t underestimate him.
Now that's my dream ticket!
Romney the RINO I can do without.
These people want us engaged in internecine warfare and they want us to start it right now.
I am not going to help give them what they want.
I will take Sarah over any of the above. Give her four more years of executive experience and she will be head and shoulders above any of the rest.
Palin will have their goose and leave a dime for change
with the gizzard.
She outclasses all of them.
And they want to be rid of her for that reason.
Ain’t gonna happen folks!
Too Quayle-ized, Too Compromised, and Too Soon. Not much of a choice.
Not as long as long as he is a global warming nutjob.
Otherwise, she will remain the political equivalent of Minnie Pearl.
That kind of shit sells pretty well, though, in some markets. It even sells somewhat here at the FRee Republic where it should be pulled from the shelf.
That's a "codeword" from the last campaign and it usually has to do with the fact she didn't kill her, or her daughter's babies.
That's hardly a moderate point of view.
Do we have a list of "a$$wipez" where we can keep track of these pukes so that no one posts them here.
As the 22nd most significant source of news in the United States, I think we owe it to ourselves and our readership to DENY them access to people who are leading lives not worth living (such as appears to be the case with Michael van der Galien)
I don’t think he is. Not sure what he was doing with that. The global warming hoax is crashing now anyways. Four years from now it will be totally discredited.
24.4% Republican voters want Governor Sarah Palin to be the Republican candidate for president in 2012. ———— Only 13.4% of “all voters” agree. .............. Oh Yeah, When only 13% of the MSM “all voters” agree then we know we got a good one. I question the 24.4% too, I think they got it backwards, its probably more like 44.2%. Bottom line, the condition of the economy will decide the next election.
I wish some of the political neophytes around here were more familiar with Reagan's 11th Commandment. Nothing good comes from tearing down the other folks on your team. Make the case for your candidate.
Palin, Jindal, Sanford, Steele. These are the new Republican generation and do we ever need them.
“...and the party ending up with Senator John McCain as the compromise candidate.”
That is BS - We had McCain forced upon us by a bunch of liberals who voted in our primaries for the Republican “they” preferred to run against their party.
First order of business here is that we make sure that ONLY Republicans vote in the Republican primaries - otherwise it just doesn’t matter and our candidate will NOT represent Republicans.
Gov. Palin, at this moment in time, has been defined by the MSM. That is her public personna. It must be changed during the next two years for her to be an effective candidate in 2012.
Romney and Huckabee had their chances. Neither appeals to the broad majority of Conservatives.
Sarah Palin has a once in a political lifetime opportunity to go for the nomination in 2012 and has the time, four years worth, to set it up. Reagan tried in 1976 and missed; he had four years to set up for 1980, and WON!
Smart Conservative folks out there should be lining up to support Gov.Palin. She is the future of our party because she can bring people, who normally wouldn’t vote Republican, on board. She has a record of doing just that in Alaska.
