Magritte, are you serious? You are just as out of touch as they are. With the right VP Candidate (I’m hoping Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, he’s got the right credentials and he adds “diversity” as an Indian-American)
Palin is the ONLY one with the chance of beating Barack Obama. Even swing voters who aren’t that conservative will prefer Palin over to some slick-gel-haired establishment elitist Rino like Romney. Those silent but ever important swing voters at least appreciate voting for someone who is a straight-talker. Someone they know what to expect from even if they’re not on the same page on every issue. I think people underestimate that about Palin.
People underestimate her potential to appeal outside the base over all.
Hey CP...check my #37...not talking about my opinions about the candidates...weighing what’s going on politically in DC now involving Cantor and Barbour...and I am definitely not out touch...Republican machine politics is fairly predictable historically, that’s why this maneuvering seems pretty easy to figure out... magritte
When humans put someone on a pedestal, it is mighty easy for that person to topple.
Don't know if you remember, but at one time in this forum there was a very loud group that thought the same thing about Rudy Guiliani. He was the ONLY one that could beat (fill in the blank) .
There are 3 full years before the next presidential election and that amount of time is an eternity in politics.
and who gives a shite about that...I sure don't...we got diversity out the ying yang occupying the White House right now and it stinks to high heaven
man...I can't get over what passes for conservatism to day...obsession with identity politics
I support who I agree with and who can get elected. Palin is the best I've seen in decades since...Magnus...an outstanding old school traditional WHITE MALE with a folksy country sounding accent and he basically brought America out of another radical's reign depression and defeated the Soviets.
Jindahl is ideologically good but flat as a speaker and bring nothing....Palin has the Deep South white vote in a lock which is why she hardly hit here on her book tour.
She will need someone balancing who brings something she doesn't have...(there is a great segue on that but I will refrain).
