What does Bush 43 think of Sarah Palin? Not much, say friends
The New York Daily News via KTAR-FM 92.3 News Talk Phoenix, Ariz. ^ | 2010-11-05

Posted on 11/05/2010 6:27:25 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

Insiders say President George W. Bush thinks Sarah Palin is not qualified to be the president, according to a NY Daily News report.

The paper says Bush also criticized Sen. John McCain for putting her the 2008 Republican ticket.

It doesn't identify any of the Bush friends and sources by name and it quotes one unnamed Republican official who says that McCain's Palin decision made "Bush think less of McCain as a man."

This isn't true. It's based on anonymous sources and it's as transparent a leftist ploy as it could possibly be.

And it has already been posted and dismissed.

Get with the program. I know you must be despondent at the Republican victories this week, rabs but you'll get over it some day....

So, are the pubs really ganging up on Palin, or is the media trying to imply that the pubs are ganging up on Palin? This is about the 4th or 5th story about some republican or another speaking out against her.

Maybe the RINOs are ticked off because their boys, Crist, Castle, and others, didn’t win their elections. If so, it’s time to find the RINOs and purge them. (Actually, I think that the purging process has already begun.

If Bush is refraining from criticizing Barack Hussein Obama, then it doesn’t seem likely that he’d be going around criticizing Sarah Palin.

Bush on Oprah to be aired next Tuesday:

OPRAH: So your brother Jeb was recently asked by CNN if he would support Sarah Palin for president. Did you hear that? In 2012.
PRES. BUSH: Yeah.
OPRAH: And he responded, “You betcha.” Do you think that Sarah Palin is the one for the Republican party in 2012?
PRES. BUSH: You know, I am not a political pundit. I’m really not. And secondly, a lot is gonna happen between now and the nominating process. I — I have no clue.
OPRAH: I’m not asking you to pundit.
PRES. BUSH: Yeah, you are.
OPRAH: I’m just asking you your opinion.
PRES. BUSH: You’re asking me to wade back into the swamp.
OPRAH: Come on in. Come on in.

I've heard people who know GW Bush personally say that he thinks she's the best thing to happen to the country since Ronald Reagan.

I have as much evidence for my claim as the author of this article.

Why bother with the truth when we can exercise our mindless BDS and get to say nasty things about President Bush?

Truth never interferes with Bush haters' venting. It's not about thought. It's about FEEELINGS, whoa-oh-oh FEEEELINGS! ;*)

Shrubbury may think that Palin is not qualified to be president, but he went out and proved that when it came to his own reign of error now, didn't he. Amnesty, putting the chinese and UAE in charge of American port security, and Bailout version 1.0 are all things he championed. It's the ideology, stupid. You can always hire enough MBAs to do the work.

From what I've seen the "Paultards" pretty much hate everybody, including both Palin people and Bush people (and those of us who are both).

They are the masters of creating dissension, which is why they jump on and agree with the leftists who are trying do the same thing. They're the hapless foils for the leftist ploys.

I watched that, the whole thing is nothing more than a media attempt to put words in the mouth of George W. Bush and he didn’t fall for it. Watch for the whole thing to be repeated as truth before long. They start out with “unnamed sources” and then the phony “story” gets a life of its own and people forget that there is no real basis for it.

Come to think of it, I was all ticked off at the RINOs this morning. Still am. But, I don't think that this is as much a RINO vs Conservative issue as it is the media trying to "divide and conquer" the republican party.

Tread carefully in these stories - they keep citing unnamed sources, while pointing the finger at established Republicans. If they can't directly quote their source, then it's probably BS.

Oh, the Rino (led by Rove) campaign against Palin is in full gear. They have admitted it openly now...they want to make sure she does NOT decide to run, because she could win the primary and lose the election.

Please pay attention to it because we will see what Republicans are in on it, and who is not. It will be telling who is willing to wait for the primaries, and “may the best man win”...or who is willing to use the liberal press to warn off Palin.

It will be telling.

But this stuff with President Bush is not warranted at all, he has made it clear he wants to stay out of the swamp.

it quotes one unnamed Republican official who says that McCain's Palin decision made "Bush think less of McCain as a man."

Eh... that just doesn't ring right. I'm not buying it. That just doesn't sound like something he would say, or the way he would say it, even if he thought it.
