Barbara Bush to Palin: Stay in Alaska
CNN ^ | Saturday, November 20, 2010

Posted on 11/20/2010 8:38:20 AM PST by kristinn

Sarah Palin may not have the biggest fan in former first lady Barbara Bush.

"I sat next to her once. Thought she was beautiful," Barbara Bush said. "And she's very happy in Alaska, and I hope she'll stay there."

Bush, along with her husband, former President George H.W. Bush, spoke to CNN's Larry King in an interview set to air Monday.

Agreed and thats what I like about her. She isn’t of that class and makes them nervous. Good.

Barbara Bush, Laura Bush and Condoleeza Rice are all enthusiastic supporters of abortion on demand.

They hate Sarah Palin, as all women of their ilk do.

President H.W. Bush was no friend to Conservatives, and the same can be said of his wife.

Not surprising that this would be the response to Gov. Palin. Also, take note of whom they agreed to have interview them.

Two lessons here:

1. The Bushs are and always have been part of the ruling elite which includes a lot of Republicans, and while not socialists like O and crew, they are still big, benevolent government types, and,

2. because they are “nice guys”, or people we like and feel a connection to, does not mean we should vote for them or that they would make good representatives.

I’d say Barb has been pretty traumatized by the beating Dubya took in elite opinion. Jumping on Palin is an easy way for her to regain cred with them.

I would prefer to have Sarah Palin as my president than another country-club RINO. She does not crave or pursue power for power’s sake but humbly bends her knee and bows her head to God Almighty. For THIS and loving America unashamedly, she has been deemed by the so-called political elites to be unelectable and targeted for destruction. Should she run for and win the presidency in 2012, I could truly die a happy woman for I would know my country was in truly competent hands. (Unlike the cadre of Marxists in the White Hut now.)

Barbara Bush took a cheap shot at Sarah Palin and she smiled like she had made a great sarcastic statement.

She was much better thought of when she was keeping her mouth shut.

One of the best decisions the Bush’s ever made was to leave poffice and keep quiet. It’s a good move they should stick to.

I’m not one to attribute the views of George H W Bush to George W. Bush or the views of Barbara Bush to either of them. However, I would note, and I’ve said this many times, George W. Bush was not a conservative. He was at best a moderate, and more realistically, a left-leaning moderate. When you try to figure out where exactly Bush and Obama’s policies differ, you run into difficulty. Bush did not have a trillion dollar failed stimulus. Bush did not nationalize the health care system. Bush banned federal subsidies of embryonic stem cell research on new lines of embryos. But except for those three policies, there really isn’t much difference.

Since when did Larry King care about Republican-has-beens? They have been used as a tool to destroy future Republican leaders, in this case Sarah Palin. They should watch their mouth carefully.

Meeeow! Nice little jab there babs, first praise her then stab her in the back. Well I guess that is the RINO ruling class way. And we are all sick of it. All you do with your vile petulant remarks is make us support Sarah even more. If you had all just kept your traps shut and left Sarah alone she would still be governor of Alaska and back into obscurity.
