Former Sarah Palin colleague says she has multiple flaws
Daily Telegraph ^ | December 19, 2010 | Alex Spillius

Posted on 12/20/2010 6:03:00 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife

"The more people try to take her out, she only becomes emboldened, strengthened, it makes her such a martyr," said Mrs Wallace, who has recently written a thriller called Eighteen Acres, drawn in part from her experiences on the bid for the White House of John McCain and Mrs Palin, his running mate.

"She has very obvious deficiencies that will reveal themselves as the nominating contest gets closer," she told The Daily Telegraph, adding: "Let her shoot her moose or whatever the heck she does on her [television] show, it will all work out."

...... "What's troubling is she has missed an opportunity to go beyond the platitudes and deepen her knowledge," said Mrs Wallace, who was formerly communications director in the George W Bush administration. "It's incredibly cynical to think you can win an election without having a thoughtful intellectual discussion with the country, thinking you can just scare people into voting for you."

Mrs Wallace's remarks follow similar reservations voiced by senior Republicans and figureheads of the Right including Barbara Bush, former First Lady, and Karl Rove, the leading strategist in the George W Bush administration.

[October 29, 2008] Nicolle Wallace Will Not Be Thrown Under The Bus "The Republican equivalent of being sent to the gulag is babysitting Sarah Palin, and this thankless task has fallen to former Bush staffer and current McCain employee Nicolle Wallace. What unspeakable sin did Wallace commit in order to be saddled with this terrible burden? Only History will tell. But for now she insists it is awesome to hang out with Sarah Palin all the time, and also she did not buy her all those clothes like Fred Barnes said she did....."

She was a colleague in the same way that Aaron Burr was a colleague of Alexander Hamilton.

Only embolden her to run, Nicole. You can tell she has been one of the ‘sources’ of the McCain campaign. And her saying this is going to backfire when Palin does run because she isn’t any of those things and they are scared at the possibility or they wouldn’t have this much of an uproar.

FLASHBACK: GREAT MOMENTS IN GOP BACKSTABBING IN 2008
TO THROW ELECTION 2008 .... to OBAMA

"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the "Diva" leak was Nicolle Wallace's husband."

"Go Mitt. Go Mitt."


Late in October 2008, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers…
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide…
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."


The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"I'm told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palin's people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romney's former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
… aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.
... These staffers are now out trying to finish her off ….hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."


"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"

The difference between the two parties:

Republican: Obama has flaws.
Democrat: No he doesn't!! You're a racist! He's the One! He's the Messiah! Brilliant! Articulate! Shut up!

Democrat: Palin has flaws.
Republican: Well, who doesn't?
Democrat: Obama doesn't! You're a racist!

I’m waiting to hear the words “uncurious”. That’s a code-word by the pseudo-intellectuals to say they think she’s stupid. They said the same thing about Ronald Reagan 30 years ago, and it turned out he was more intellectual and brainy than anyone else in the room. Same thing to a certain extent to George W. Bush. On the other hand, we’re fed that Algore, Lurch Kerry, and B. Hussein Obama are intellectual giants (giggle).

Nicolle Wallace is a big supporter of the gay rights agenda. The photograph in the article may reveal more than one might think possible.

I think we’re seriously sick and tired of “intellectuals”, especially those who deem themselves to be so.

Yes, it’s “anti-intellectualism”. And we’ll define “intellectual” as Dr Thomas Sowell defines them - people whose sole “product” in life is ideas; ideas which the “intellectuals” themselves do not have to experience the consequences of...
“Intellectuals” whose worldview includes the idea that they are superior and have a right and duty to make decisions for other people...

Yes, we’re sick and tired of those people. Yes, we’re “anti-intellectual”.

We are, however, pro-achievement. We are pro-elite. We are anti-elitIST.

And as I look at your resume, former GW Bush employee, former Palin employee while you were probably working for McCain and currently working for McCain are you?
You, dear lady got HIT by the bus.Not thrown under it.

Nicole Wallace, while still a McCain campaign staffer, urged Gov. Palin to let Katie Couric (Nicole’s good friend and former CBS colleague) interview her. The night before the interview, Couric prepared for it by huddling with two advisors to the Obama campaign, former Democrat Senator Sam Nunn and Council on Foreign Relations president Richard Haas.

As most people know around here, I am NOT a big Sarah fan. BUT, listing Barbara Bush and Karl Rove as members of the “right” is kind of silly.

Thats like saying white with a splash of pink is a deep shade of red.

You can say it, but it simply is not true.

There is difference between the lefties and conservatives concerning personal flaws:

Conservatives embrace and acknowledge their flaws while using person discipline to overcome obstacles from these imperfections.

The left claim personal flaws are a result of society while either glossing them over(Media ignoring Obama’s incompetence), using drugs like Prozac to hide them or spend a lifetime on a therapists couch discussing their feelings.

Her new book is supposedly about a female presidential candidate whose husband is fooling around with a journalist.

I’m starting to think that Wallace was trying to “tempt” the First Dude and she was told to POUND SAND.

Novel by Nicolle Wallace "Eighteen Acres"

Booklist: "Melanie Kingston, White House chief of staff to the nation’s forty-fifth president, Charlotte Kramer, has spent 15 years in the 18 acres that constitute the White House complex. As her boss and dear friend President Kramer considers running for a second term, the two are confronted with political and personal turmoil that threatens their collective and individual careers. Melanie has no social life to speak of as she navigates the politics within and outside the White House. Charlotte’s marriage is falling apart, her husband is having an affair, and her closest adviser and friend makes a judgment that threatens national security and tests the bonds of friendship. Dale Smith, a reporter in love with the president’s husband, fights her conscience and professional ethics as she struggles to climb to the top of television news reporting. Wallace draws on 13 years experience as a political commentator and news reporter, many of those years spent working in the White House, to deliver a portrait of three women caught in the whirlwind of Washington politics." --Vanessa Bush "

And this tidbit:

"...I did find the heavy focus on expensive designer name products a bit off putting coming from people in such high power positions. Am I nitpicking? Maybe. But such name dropping is both distracting and unnecessary in a book of this genre. .."
