And Goldwater before him.
Establishment Pubbies are unsurpassed in their snootiness. Except, maybe, for establishment liberal Dems.
you are sooooo correct. Right on target, FRiend. Have a Great Day and Be Safe.
“Establishment Pubbies are unsurpassed in their snootiness. Except, maybe, for establishment liberal Dems.”
They gave us Nixon and they gave us Bush Sr. and W - we should discontinue the practice of combining someone like Reagan with a Bush. Because then in 8 years it’s ‘their turn’.
They gave us Dole - I would have preferred to lose with Forbes or Kemp. :-) Forbes is what the new Republican Congress needed at the time. I’d vote for him now.
Then we got McCain... ‘nuf said.
While I’ll hold Reagan as an exception that ‘got it’ - I don’t trust any former Democrat - from the Dixiecrats, to the Yellow Dogs to Robertsons and the Neo-Cons. They all eventually cave it seems.
The snootiness of the establishment Republicans should be reduced a bit by the complete failure of the 6 years when they were in control with Bush II and the Republican Congress. Corruption, sex scandals, massive growth in government, war, and then rejection by the voters and minority status in Congress. Then their partners in “bipartisanship” the radical left continued to grow government and we had a crash and an economic depression. Good job, establishment! Go Romney! Go McCain! Go Murkowski! Eat well well we struggle.
Maybe they REALLY don’t care about the people.
In some of the comments on that article, people were campaign her to Goldwater with the idea that the same thing that happened to Goldwater would happen to Palin. The big difference between then and now in the nature of the media available to people. Back in Goldwater’s day, the MSM was the ONLY game in town. The left controlled the message! Not so these days. Sarah has the ability and the technical capability to by-pass the media and go VFR direct to We the People! The left knows this and that’s why they and the RINO GOP establishment have all the knives out! But it won’t work - We the People are onto their game!
