Nicolle Wallace: 'Heaven Forbid' Palin Becomes President
Newsbusters ^ | 12/1/10 | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 12/01/2010 8:51:34 AM PST by Mozilla

It's no secret that [Nicolle] Wallace is no fan of Sarah Palin. But the former Bush communications director and McCain campaign aide perhaps took things to another level with her attack on Palin on today's Morning Joe. Wallace was on to comment on Joe Scarborough's astonishing claim of yesterday, noted here, that "all" conservatives and talk radio hosts with whom he's spoken are harshly critical of Palin off the record, but are afraid to express their views publicly.

Wallace opined that if it ever looked as if Palin were close to copping the Republican presidential nomination, many GOP leaders who have to date been too timid to criticize her would step forward to expose Palin's putative shortcomings. In the course of propounding her theory, Wallace unleashed a hail of criticism of her own:

* "Mistakes were made [by McCain in choosing Palin]." * "Her troubling deficiencies." * "Her incredible cynicism, her bitterness, her aggressive attempts to claw [makes clawing hand-gesture] anyone" who criticizes her. * "Very prickly, very cynical." * "Heaven forbid, the leader of the free world."

Wallace asserted that Republicans hesitate to criticize Palin publicly for fear of angering Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, whom Nicolle claimed to admire.

Every single person of this kind who comes out against her only fortifies my belief that she is the one they are all afraid of.

Number one goal of the Tea Party in 2011 should be a complete a makeover (and takeover) of the Republican Party as possible.

Throw the Roves and Wallaces out.

Republicans Raise Money for Gay Agenda

September 20, 2010

The civil war in the Republican Party takes another turn on Wednesday night when Sarah Palin basher Nicolle Wallace lends her name to a fundraiser for a pro-homosexual group called American Foundation for Equal Rights. Wallace, an adviser to the 2008 McCain for President campaign, figures prominently in Sarah Palin’s book, Going Rogue, as someone determined to get her on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric.

As potentially bad as Palin may be, She is closer to Thatcher than Marx. Which is good enough for me and better than oblah blah, he is closer to Marx.

If Palin became President, not only would that be wonderful for the United States, but as a conservative myself, I would truly relish watching the Canadian left’s collective head explosion. It would be a very, very happy day indeed.

Indeed. Proved everyday.

Even on THIS board there is a tremendous amount of energy expended in trashing Governor Palin who is supposedly unqualified/stupid/uneducated/shallow/vacuous and untimately unelectable.

So if she is just another of those ... ahem....genial dunces....why does she make you soil your drawers, fellas?

“Wallace opined that if it ever looked as if Palin were close to copping the Republican presidential nomination, many GOP leaders who have to date been too timid to criticize her would step forward to expose Palin’s putative shortcomings.”

Nicole Wallace was an incompetent failure working on the McCain presidential campaign. She ran to the MSM and back stabbed her candidate Sarah Palin and then continually lied about it.

I don't believe a word she says.

The larger question is who are these “many GOP leaders” who are supposedly backstabbing Sarah Palin to the MSM and are too cowardly to criticize her publicly. Could Joy Behar’s “favorite Republican” be one of these? I doubt he would have gotten such a fawning reception on The View if he were not backstabbing other Republicans in the process. I am sick and tired of Republicans who are too cowardly to stand up for the American people and who only want to curry favor with the MSM and anonymously back stab conservatives.

I do not care what Nicolle Wallace thinks/says. And I am blissfully ignorant of what happens on MSNBC, I haven’t watched a single moment of their coverage since Chris Matthews made his tingling leg comment.

‘expose Palin’s shortcomings?’

Har de har har.

Has anyone in the world been more scrutinized, investigated, watched through a microscope, analyzed, trashed and belittled?

So, if there was anything to ‘expose’ believe me, it would already have been exposed.

Wallace is one of the rags who helped McCain self-destruct in 08. PMS is an understatement of the condition plauging this poor, tormented soul. The woman she’s worked so diligently to destroy may well be headed for the GOP nomination and beyond which has sent Nicole over the edge.

This is all very beautiful.

Why, if Mrs. Palin is so unqualified, etc. do these people keep talking about her possible future in politics?

I think they are scared to death, because they know that she can eat their lunches and then laugh about it.....

Nioclle Wallace is now out in the open as a rino and a rat. A back stabber who smears Sarah Palin from the shadows. Now she is out in the open.

Excellent characterization.

If anything, Palin's potential candidacy is exposing the great pretenders, the RINOs, the Elites, the saboteurs of conservatism, the whores of statism and globalism.

Nicolle Wallace, Kathleen Parker, Joe Scarborough, and Big Mama Bush have all been outed lately for their preemptive attacks on Palin.

I look forward in the coming months to flicking on the lights and watching more RINO-roaches scrambling across the kitchen floor of the infested-GOP.

“Has anyone in the world been more scrutinized, investigated, watched through a microscope, analyzed, trashed and belittled?”

#####

The scrutiny to which Governor Palin is subjected reminds me of Joan of Arc. The agnostic Mark Twain’s superb biography of the French Saint makes the cogent point that Joan’s life was documented,in not one but two, very thorough and extended public trials. The astounding miracles and details of her life are analyzed, checked, rechecked, verified and confirmed like literally no one else in history.

The utter miracle that was Joan of Arc left Twain astounded and a bit taken aback in his unbelief.

Well, that’s a BIT off track, but the electron microscope of very bad intentions, under which Sarah Palin functions, no FLOURISHES, represents a double standard that is applied to no other political candidate on the scene today.

Please pay attention to which if any candidate hires Wallace during the campaign.

I don’t think these attacks are taking place for no reason.

I would highly recommend it to everyone, across the board, even those not interested in Catholic Saints or the Hundred Years War, as I consider it essential in so many areas of understanding.

Twain said it was by far the work of which he was most proud. He spent 10-15 years on it, much of it doing primary source research in France. After Joan of Arc, I would think it impossible for Mark Twain to have remained an agnostic.

You can get it free at Project Gutenberg- I just re-read it on my Nook.

***I was gonna say about the same thing, but far less eloquently. No other politician today has generated such reactions, and yet at the same time seems to have thrived under tremendous scrutiny by the press. Where was that scrutiny for zer0bama?

I agree completely. I find the level of vitriol directed towards Sarah Palin to be both puzzling and disturbing.

The things that I find appealing in her besides the obvious ones mentioned before such as being unabashedly pro-military, pro-life and pro-domestic energy, is the degree of energy, independence, and assertiveness that she displays.

Plus, I view the fact that she's able to pick up a weapon, is not only not intimidated by it, but can use it to shoot a moose which she would then butcher and bring home meat for her family. It's obvious to me that this is not a populist fabrication by her “handlers”, but is who she is and what she does.

Funny, I saw this photo during the campaign where she was talking to the president of Colombia, and this Photoshop I did was what popped into my head immediately upon seeing it:

I find it amusing that people label her with the “populist” label. Sarah Palin is probably the closest thing to a real live honest-to-goodness middle-class person that has been included on a presidential ticket in a long, long time… it is interesting to see the same people that hammer George W. Bush for his Ivy League education hammer her for her unsophisticated education.

Just goes to show, politics crosses all kinds of boundaries…

Boy, you beat me to it. All the things President Bush did that I disagree with, one of the major ones that irritated me was his refusal to stick up for himself.

I’m listening to his book right now, and I find it amazing that one of the things that he mentions in the book as being a huge political mistake is to allow your opponents to define the terms of discourse.

That was one of the major blunders that he committed during his presidency… he should’ve fought back sooner, harder and more often.

Great post, and I love your photoshop (gotta learn to work with that program).

One of the most striking things I remember from the 2008 campaign was the looks of utter fascination she received from leaders of other countries: Beauty, charm, courage, ability and common sense in a person who simply unashamedly and proudly loves her country.

I got into yet another ugly tussle on another Sarah Palin thread today; something that still is rather surprising on a conservative forum. Here we have the most riveting conservative prospect in decades, perhaps at this point in the election cycle, the most promising ever, and she is repeatedly trashed with unmatched vigor.

I have several working theories as to why that is the case, one that is emerging with more prominence is that she represents a threat to entrenched interests on both sides of the aisle, in the media, and in government in general.

Why? Because she has the interests of the American public first and foremost.

I know you mean, there was a thread yesterday or the day before that discussing Title IX and how Sarah Palin had made a comment in favor of that legislation and that she had been a beneficiary of it.

Now, I hate that legislation just as much as most of the people who railed against her for saying something positive about, but am I going to stake my whole opinion about a candidate or person on that particular single issue?

No… I’m not going to do that because national security, right to life, the right to keep and bear arms, and other similar issues are far more important to me. But I do find it fascinating that some people want to make their entire argument against her on the basis of something like that, which I find eminently ridiculous.

It’s all about politics. Some of these people are Romney supporters… some of them support other candidates, and so on and so forth. Always seems to be the same people, too, In every thread. I don’t go into most of those much anymore, I find it too tedious.

Your Personal Page is fabulous, BTW. Recommended to all who might read this post.

Your Mom and Dad are the kind of quiet, uncelebrated American heroes who made this country great.

Phyliis Schafly is from my home, St. Louis.

I completed Whittaker Chambers superbly written, cornerstone autobiography this past summer. One can’t really understand fully 20th century American history without reading “Witness”.

I’ll be reading the seminal work on Senator McCarthy soon. Ann Coulter called it the greatest book since the Bible.

Thanks for your kind comments. I agree, and while I don’t look at my parents as being ordinary at all, that is the great thing about this country, is that they WERE ordinary. There are still men and women like them in this country, and as long as we have them, we have a chance.

I think what affected me most about “Witness” was the recognition that the tactics used by the media and the liberals of the day (using the new definition of liberal, not the old) are the exact same tactics used today. Exactly. That, and the fact that McCarthy was right. We DID have Soviet sympathizers and agents riddling our government, verified by the Venona Project. (I have always wondered what kind of access, if any, McCarthy had to that information at the time...)

I will be listening to “Blacklisted by History” on the 20th of this month...:)
