Mika: ‘Cut The Crap’ On Whether Palin’s Running—’She Is’
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

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.

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.

She could play a role in the next Republican administration, maybe as liquidator of agencies we don’t need.

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.

Can you at least try to take what she said at face value honesty and sensible if you look at the bigger picture: What would be a more effective way to have a strong voice against Obama's ram-rodding Socialism in BEFORE November - her sitting as Governer when death by 1000 cuts or her doing what she's doing and being a loud 1 of 3 voices (Sarah, Rush, Glenn Beck) against Bamster.

Are you saying she's ineffective and a wasted effort at the moment? Have you looked around at the media coverage of her?

Take a step out of the forest so you can see the trees staring at you.

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.

While she and Obama are from opposite sides of the political spectrum, they are both “rock stars”. That is my main objection to her.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Quitting as Govenor of Alaska (before finishing her first term) was the death knell for her political career.

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?

Palin was de facto drafted by the American people to enter national politics as VP candidate. Once she made that choice she had her 'hat in the ring' and with ever increasing support she moved on setting the ground work for a presidential run.

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.

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.”

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.
