Eric Cantor just failed the test, and he probably doesn’t know it yet.
Just a word to the wise. If you are more afraid of Palin than you are Obama, then you aren’t going to be the one leading the charge against the Obamists. You aren’t cut out for the job. Take some time and work on your real estate license or something; you need to find a new line of work.
The right answer to the question, “is she the one to beat in the Republican Party” is “no. Obama is the one to beat if you’re a citizen with a shred of patriotism.”
The right answer to “is she qualified to be president” is “you need to ask a much more serious question: how did a cipher with no past, no accomplishments, no resume, no paper trail, and no history manage to get himself elected to the White House; and how much more damage is he going to do before we find a way to stop him.”
Or, how about this: “Palin has shown what she’s made of in Alaska, and President Obama is in the process of destroying everything he touches. His qualifications should be the ones that absolutely frighten you to the point of decisive action to save whats left of the republic.”
You don’t become a leader by applying for the job. You become a leader by leading. If I were looking for someone to lead a cavalry charge I’d look for the person who is already leading it. I sure wouldn’t give the job to a guy who toadies up to Geraldo, for pete’s sake.
EXACTLY marron, and what Palin proves time and time again is that she’s not just looking out for herself (unlike Romney and now Cantor)—she GENUINELY cares about the state of this country. about honoring our military, being a voice for people regardless of what title she holds, etc... Just look at her credentials:
hockey mom to councilman to mayor to governor. she slipped into politics because she CARED about her state, about the people she serves.
Businessmen like Romney and law school grads like Cantor are just ambition-driven politicians who have been preparing to run their whole lives.
He needs an alter-ego as badly as Tiger Woods. You know, someone to grab him (hard) by the shoulders and scream:
WAKE THE BLEEP UP, YOU DUMBA$$!!!
