Posted on 08/09/2010 12:40:24 PM PDT by pissant
ATLANTA Sarah Palin handed Georgia gubernatorial hopeful Karen Handel her conservative seal of approval on Monday in a tight Republican runoff, saying Handel would "fight like a mama grizzly" and help usher out the state's "good ol' boy network."

Karen Handel is Roy Barnes choice candidate as well.
Deal was campaigning on Monday in seven cities across the state. On Sunday, former Republican presidential contender Mike Huckabee headlined a rally for Deal.
Duncan Hunter could not be reached for comment.
Yeah. I know. Huck has been choosing the RINOs over the conservatives.....oh, wait, that’s Palin.
OK, so for non-Georgians, what are the cliff notes on Handel and Deal that make one a RINO and the other supposedly a Conservative??
I voted for Handel in the Primary, but will be voting for Deal in the August run off. He has a good shot.
It’s a shame that he only starting getting his message out last week. I had never heard his name until then.
Well little man, you only get to define ‘conservative’ in the wee sphere that is lodged in your cranium. No one gives a feck what you think. But you post away, continuing to believe you’re idiocy actually effects a change of opinion about Mrs Palin. Deluded twit that you are.
To me it’s enough to know that Deal was a former rat, who jumped ship after 1994.
Guess you didn’t vote for that ex rat Reagan, either.
I would have been too young. And between a Republican and a Rat, I will always vote Republican. Besides, I doubt Reagan switched when the rats where down, like Deal. Specter did the same thing, over and over again.
Enough with the gratuitous insults already.
As a matter of fact, Reagan, who was once a big supporter of FDR, switched in the 50’s - the Eisenhower years.
There endeth the history lesson of the day.
Deal’s to the right of Handel. Heck. Zell MILLER’S to the right of Handel, and he still CALLS himself a D.
I’m going for Nathan Deal mainly because I don’t want Roy Barnes. I’m concerned that Karen Handel can’t beat Barnes.
Some Georgia FReepers aren’t all that happy with this RINO.
Reagan switched to Republican long, long before 1994.
Is this the Millie I remember? Or a different Millie?
Eisenhower was president, but the rats controlled the House and Senate for most of the 50’s. So really, the rats had the run of the place. I would imagine that the more progressive elements still hadn’t taken as much control as now. However, I’m sure Reagan saw the writing on the wall and switched. Did Deal do the same when he jumped ship in 95, or was it for his own benefit?
From what I’ve read elsewhere, Deal is not to the right of Handel on many issues.
Hey, I’m Millie, Too...doubt i’m the one that pissant is referring to, though....
I love the Mama Grizzley
So was Ronald Reagan back in the day.
Yes he was. But then again he was running against rinos, unlike Deal.
I can’t believe you posted this!!!!! I have been on the phone throughout the day with my clients, they are having fits over this run-off! BTW, I don’t work in any politcal capacity however the majority of my clients are outside of the metro area throughout the state.
Sarah Palin OBVIOUSLY did not do her homework on this endorsement which leaves me to wonder if she chose her just because she is a woman.
Here you go:
Pissant changed his/her name to PDSissant.
Says at the link that Handel has never completed a full term in office.
Georgia Right to Life
National Right to Life
Voted AGAINST TARP, Auto Bailouts and ObamaCare
“A” Rating National Tax Payers Union
Why don’t you read up on Nathan Deal before you make such an assummption?
Lied about giving money to the Log Cabin Conservatives
Voted to give GA money to Planned Parenthood
She has done nothing but run for office but has never completed a term.
In her smear campaign routed Georgians to a site supported by George Soros to insinuate Nathan Deal was corrupt. George Soros?????
She may have the backing of the metro moderate crowd but not outside of 285.
She is a train wreck!!! She backed out of a debate because she didn’t LIKE some of the people in it. She has accused EVERYONE of corruption. She’s got nothing but Sarah Palin.
Mama Grizzly, indeed!
Now I know why some Ga FReepers were so upset.
The debate she DID do, I honestly thought she was going to lose it...
I found out the other day that all this time she has been hollering about everyone else - she herself has an ethics charge against her for mishandling campaign funds.
Looks like the good old boy network is being replaced by the good old girl network.
The grissly mamas
I’m sorry but Sarah Palin didn’t do her due diligence and now we can be screwed because there are so many that follow her blindly.
You are right, my bad. Thank you for setting the record straight :)
I totally agree with you. I was being sarcastic.:)
I wrote Gov. Palin at her PAC as well as Facebook and asked her to please go back and look at all of the facts that have come out about Handel and reconsider.
None of it makes sense, Handel is not the most conservative, nor does she have the best chance to beat the democrat. She has the worst chance, IMO. Sheesh, even the liberals are cheering for Handel to win.
This was back when we had 7 conservatives running. I never heard back, but I see she’s still stumping so I guess she just doesn’t care. All I can figure is she think’s she’s guaranteeing a supporter in 2012. That doesn’t make sense either because I believe Johnson and Chapman because they are more grassroots/teaparty types (and maybe even Deal) would have supported Palin.
I don’t understand it AT ALL.
How about some context on the Planned Parenthood issue. It was to administer breast and cervical cancer screenings, not for abortion, as anyone might assume.
You don’t actually believe that do you?
YES - how about some context. The context is that the grant had NO such stipulation for the specific services.
This particular vendor is is recognized nationally for providing excellent, culturally appropriate reproductive health services to women and teens.
The real context is all right here at GA Right to Life. It’s pretty clear what happened, no matter how you try to spin it.
Handel is quite the spin-master. How long did she deny that check to Log Cabin, saying it was forged, until a copy came out and then she backtracked and admitted it?
Probably the same way people would spin that Deal is a solid pro-life, despite a couple of votes from the past: http://www.votesmart.org/issue_keyvote_detail.php?cs_id=7893&can_id=26824 and http://www.votesmart.org/issue_keyvote_detail.php?cs_id=8063&can_id=26824.
What did you pick and choose votes from 17 years ago? I thought you liked CONTEXT.
Deal has admitted a change of heart and voted consistently conservative for the past SEVENTEEN years. Here is his WHOLE voting history:
Keep on working on that SPIN though LOL
I mean, if you pick and chose on Planned Parenthood funding, why not?
Besides, it’s been a long day and this back and forth is entertaining. Bottom line, I would vote for Handel (can’t, I’m in NM) and I assume you would vote for Deal. I sincerely doubt we’ll change each others mind, although that would be something.
Well my purpose, unlike you, is not to entertain or change anyone’s mind. My purpose is to make folks know the truth when spinmasters try to obscure it.
Have a nice day.
Well elections have consequences and we will feel the consequences with Handel against King Roy!!!
Oh, by the way, the “planned parenthood” is not the ONLY issue - there is a boatload of issues with Karen Handel but I’ve made all that clear on other threads for anyone that cares.
Of course it is not the ONLY issue. And we can go back and forth till the cows come home, but what’s the point at this stage. You are convinced that she is evil, and anyone who says otherwise is a spinmaster. Well, right back at you.
