Skip to comments.Mika: ‘Cut The Crap’ On Whether Palin’s Running—’She Is’
Posted on 07/12/2010 4:43:10 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
Mika Brzezinski wants to "cut the crap" when it comes to building speculation as to whether Sarah Palin will run for president in 2012. According to Mika, Palin's candidacy is a done deal, and the press is letting itself be sucked into a phony build-up.
Mika is so sure that Sarah is running that on today's Morning Joe she was willing to wager a dubious Jonathan Capehart $1,000. Brzezinski's comments came in response to Politico's report, highlighted by Mike Allen, that Palin has raised significant money and built a nascent campaign staff.

Mika sure Sarah is running ping to Today show list.
I want to put the entire mslsd lineup in an internment camp with muzzies.
Too late LLS;(
They are already in the camp - as hall monitors!!!
Sorry—don’t think that in 2012 Americans will be stupid enough to elect another person who is in over their heads. While Palin is far superior to Obama, I don’t think she is Presidential material. Quitting as Govenor of Alaska (before finishing her first term) was the death knell for her political career.
Mika is a Soviet Russian with an American Passport.
She should have been exchanged with the other spies.
oh lord i hope she doesn’t run and win the nomination. a choice between her and bammy is horrible. isn’t there another logical candidate who will bring reason and skill to the job??
That’s what they already said about her a year ago.....and now many people are backing away from that prediction...HA!
The left are searching for that target they read about in Alinksy’s field manual.
She could play a role in the next Republican administration, maybe as liquidator of agencies we don’t need.
Mika is one of the dimmest bulbs on MSNBC and that is saying alot.
I don't think Sarah has made up her mind yet but Mika is right that all this publicity whether positive or negative is making her the First Lady of Politics.
Actually Mika is one of the BRIGHTEST BULBS on MSNBC, and that makes it even worse!!
Oh no! A powerful sexy woman is running! Now Mika will have to get bigger implants!! How can she possibly compete against a woman with a GUN!! Oh no! Another libtard bites the dust!
Well, I guess your pronouncement settles the matter. I’ll call Sarah and personally tell her you have nixed the idea. She’ll drop out immediately on your word. Now exactly how long will it take for you to burrow back to Dummie Underground and make your report????
Oh year, horrible decision to make in politics. Her Facebook posts are considered news. She's built a small fortune to campaign with that she couldn't have done otherwise. She doesn't have to devote time or money to political based lawsuits. She's free to travel anywhere she wants. She's gaining support by endorsing and helping others of like mind to get elected.
Horrible decision for a politician.
Mika, the queen of crap.
I’m still have a sly feeling in 2012, Obama wont run again and it’ll be down to Clinton vs Palin.
While she and Obama are from opposite sides of the political spectrum, they are both “rock stars”. That is my main objection to her.
Okay, thanks for weighing in, Mitt.
I'd much rather see her head up the RNC.
Damn—how did you know??
LOL, just a hunch...
Mika is right, she has been campaigning since she stepped down as Gov.
“Sorrydont think that in 2012 Americans will be stupid enough to elect another person who is in over their heads. While Palin is far superior to Obama, I dont think she is Presidential material. Quitting as Governor of Alaska (before finishing her first term) was the death knell for her political career.”
First, America IS stupid enough. They also elected Dubya (a governor in a state which in Constitutionally limited), Clinton (enough said) and Obama.
Second, agreed, she is cooked for resigning as Governor.
Whatever. She is now the biggest political force in politics...BECAUSE she left that position. Where would she be without leaving? Mired in 30 more ludicrous lawsuits that are costing her and the state millions.
We haven't elected a General to the White House since 1956 and by 2012 I expect international relations and defense will be such a shambles that anyone with a military background will be a shoo-in. Obama's pathological narcissism won't allow him NOT to run, even if he leads the Demonrats into the wilderness for the next 20 years. So that's my guess -- Obama vs. a General to be named later.
I agree with Mika.
Does the name “Norman Schwarzkopf” make sense in light of what you said?
Handing over the reign of Governor sir, was the best thing she has done. Thank you. Move On
So whom do you think we have who is presidential material?
I don’t buy the ‘Palin is a quitter’ line for a minute. Nobody who has seen what she was put through in ‘08, and how she bounced back to be so positively influential in the last two years should fall for that.
My take is that the Clintons are rattling Obama’s cage with the hint of a challenge in order to force him to swap her in for Joe. Part of the rationale will be to neutralize Palin’s appeal to independent women.
Mika and Capehart-That’s a real cat fight!!
I think substantial international threats would rather see Obama elected than face President Palin, so I think they’ll be relatively quiet through 2012. This will be an election about the economy—and political philosophy as it pertains thereof.
Mika..White House Spokesperson.
She should have ridden out the sh!tstorm for at least one term. Granted, it would have been hell, but it would have proven her mettle to those beyond conservatives. Most Americans (outside of the Freepers) are likely she will now cut and run when the going gets too rough.
Fred Thompson had a different, but similar issue—he wanted the GOP nomination handed to him on a silver platter without working for it.
Where is the diverstiy at All White MSNBC?
Of course, staying on as Governor of Alaska and feeding herself to the leftist frivolous ethics complaint shredder would have been the death of her political career, her economic future and her mental well-being.
Not to mention the fact that any mud they slung at her would taint the Alaskan republicans and national conservatives in general.
Sometimes even Patton and MacArthur had to retreat, temporarily.
Isn't it smarter to survive and fight than submit and die?
Disgusting example of humanity on that network... the worst of the worst.
Yes, it is.
Come on. She would have “survived” as Alaska governor. And she would have been stronger and more respected for it.
You're right. We need someone like Mitt or T-Paw who can draw upwards of 30 people/s
Plan B was build a strong conservative opposition to the Democrats and get rich to boot.
Now that's what I call 'fire in the belly'. Right now, she has no match.
You can’t be serious you should have put Sarc on.
Patton on ‘holding a position’...
“We are advancing constantly and we’re not interested in holding onto anything except the enemy.
We’re going to hold onto him by the nose and we’re going to kick him in the ass.
We’re going to kick the hell out of him all the time
and we’re going to go through him like crap through a goose.”
I agree with you, but I think Hillary will challenge Obama in 2012 if his numbers and political fortunes continue to decline.
Those quotes are from Hollywood.
Read Ike's autobiography to get an idea of the ass-kicking the Allies took in the beginning from Rommel.
