I do like her, especially since her speech in Hong Kong though I wish she’d drop the ‘commonsense’ prefix to conservative and just run as a conservative. She used that prefix about 8 times during the rush interview a few weeks ago. It sounds like a branding and I feel like I’m being sold something. I still remember ‘compassionate’ and how it was used as an out for some actions.
I hope I am just being paranoid.
That does sound like a marketing tactic for brand recognition.
We need to get RID of all the sham fakery nonsense of the Big Money Marketering Political Elite.
Governor Palin's most distinguishing characteristics are her authenticity and genuineness.
I got the same vibe. Perhaps “common sense principles” would be better. Common sense Conservatism is redundant. Compassionate Conservatism made me go “Uh Oh” and I was right.
Conservatism (or constitutionalism) is common sense. I think she's just highlighting that point.
