Schmidt: Palin has trouble with truth
Politico ^ | 01/10/10 | Jonathan Martin

Posted on 01/10/2010 5:35:37 PM PST by writer33

John McCain’s top campaign strategist said in an interview Sunday that Sarah Palin was dishonest as the GOP’s vice-presidential nominee and that her untruths have done long-term damage to her public image.

“There were numerous instances that she said things that were – that were not accurate that ultimately, the campaign had to deal with,” said Steve Schmidt in an interview broadcast on CBS’s “60 Minutes.” “And that opened the door to criticism that she was being untruthful and inaccurate. And I think that is something that continues to this day.”

This guy has had a major hard on for her since the campaign.

Consider the source.

No kidding? Who'd a thunk it? When are we going to begin seeing this "long term damage?"

Schmidt has trouble with loyalty. That makes him a totally worthless human being in my eyes. He needs to go over to the Obamites and stay there.

Since he claimed ther were “many instances” of untruths, he could be a lot more credible if he described some specifically. I doubt he can.

Boy, Stevie really hated having Palin on the ticket, lol. He is trying SO HARD to hurt her, just like he tried to do during the campaign.

'Sumptin' tells me that ol Stevie is a 'widdle' angry at Palin for not bending over....poor baby.

I think Sarah Palin is a gift to this hurting nation by God, myself. And I also think that the single most important thing McCain ever did aside from his HEROIC ACTIONS in our MILITARY SERVICE and his TREMENDOUS SUPPORT OF OUR TROOPS is that he INTRODUCED the GOVERNOR of ALASKA to this nation.

Note to Steve: You lose.

Better yet, how many pieces has Politico devoted to Obama’s “trouble with truth”? This is nothing more than evidence of left wing journalists reporting on what other left wing journalists have to say.

No wonder the GOP is noted as the “stupid party”, with cannibals like this Schmidt character pushing his puss in front of the leftist MSM camera.

I know, I know , I know the pitfalls of a third party, but damn, sometimes....

When will he be on MSNBC promoting his crap???

I read the politico article and I couldn’t find a single example of how “Palin has trouble with [the] truth.” I saw mention of what could (charitibly) be called a difference of opinion, with absolutely no facts to back up Mr. Schmidt’s criticism.

Yeah, Right! McCain was well on his way to a landslide victory until he brought Sarah on board. I believe that. I really, really do. What the hell are these people on?

Still reading Palin’s book. Schmidt acted like an arrogant jerk in it. I am imagining he didn’t like the characterization, though she is only saying what happened: she is not calling him any names in the book. But he set her up to fail. In fact, last night while reading, I wondered by his actions during the campaign if he was secretly working for Obama. Straight Talk Express, my foot.

The people who worked for McCain have done nothing but attack Sarah. Both during the election campaign and afterwards they called her a “whack job” and other insults.
They screwed up the McCain campaign and now have tried to make a career of attacking Sarah. Why hasn't McCain told these people to shut up? Why hasn't McCain come out defending Sarah? The Republican establishment has tried to destroy Sarah. Do you notice that no Democrat politicians attack her publicly? Just the McCain people.

You’ve pretty much nailed it. He’s a hired gun, and knows that Palin wouldn’t hire him to clean dog s#it off her high heels. So he’s using the medias hatred of Palin to try and set himself out there for the next politician who needs a hack. I would not be a bit surprised to see HIM working for a Democrat in the next election, in fact I’m betting that’s what he’s aiming for with this tactic.

We know what he is, he just doesn’t get paid as well as those 13 year old girls from El Salvador.

Do you think he has McCain’s blessing? This does not help McCain one bit in his reelection. He is underestimating how much the AZ base likes Palin and how much they are tired of him. Although, all he has to do is listen. I was at a townhall with McCain a few months ago. MOst of the attendees point blank tol McCain they were not going to vote for him. Respectfully, of course.

well I’m glad that the mysterious “anonymous” source we’ve been hearing about for the past year finally has a name.

So now it comes down to the credibility of Steve Schmidt vs. the credibility of Sarah Palin.
