Haven't even read this but I can guess. Sarah isn't electable. You know what? I just don't damn care! If I have to finish out my life with the one last real 'hope' for some real change it is her, period.

If she doesn't win, then we are lost because the rest of the remotely possible slate of candidates, save Bachmann who'd be a great VP, are ball-less equivocators or plain out kooks in my opinion.

Otherwise, I will not vote again. No more McLames, no more settling.

He didn't go to Vietnam - so what? Bush didn't either.

ANG pilots served in Vietnam from 1968 to 1970 through a volunteer program called "Palace Alert."
Palace Alert was an Air Force program that sent qualified F-102 pilots from the ANG to bases in Europe or southeast Asia for three to six months of frontline service.
This program was instituted because the Air Force lacked sufficient pilots of its own for duty in Vietnam but was unable to activate ANG units since Presidents Johnson and Nixon had decided not to do so for political reasons.
Thanks to Palace Alert, the Air Force was able to transfer much-needed National Guard pilots to Vietnam on a voluntary basis while not actually calling up their squadrons.

Fred Bradley, a friend of Bush's who was also serving in the Texas ANG, reported that he and Bush inquired about participating in Palace Alert.
However, the two were told by their flight instructor, Maj. Maurice Udell, that they were not yet qualified since they were still in training and did not have the 500 hours of flight experience required.
Furthermore, ANG veteran Col. William Campenni, who was a fellow pilot in the 111th FIS at the time, told the Washington Times that Palace Alert had stopped accepting new applicants before Bush would have been eligible.

Rooty's a complete ignoramus on the Constitution.

2008 Candidate Guliani---a registered gun-grabber---said he supports the Sec/Amend but believes gun laws should be addressed "by the states."

Guiliani, a lawyer, doesn't know there's a thing called the "Supremacy Clause" in the US Constitution? Means the 2nd Amendment is the same for all 50 States (and territories). Not what some politican in Albany, Sacramento, or New York City - says it is.

GIULIANI TO WOO NRA (gun-grabber tells NRA he's "changed")
NY POST By CARL CAMPANILE September 18, 2007
FR POSTED (Search FR keyword "banglist" for more articles)

EXCERPT Mayor Rudy Giuliani was an ardent gun-control advocate. He backed the federal assault-weapons ban in 1994 over the objections of the NRA, but has changed his position as a 2008 presidential candidate. He now says he supports the Second Amendment and believes gun laws should be addressed by the states. SOURCE http://www.nypost.com/seven/09182007/news/nationalnews/giuliani_to_woo_nra.htm

Giuliani very publicly, for maximum PR impact, ripped up a huge Saudi check made on behalf of victims of 9/11------making people think he was highly offended.

Later, on the sly, Giuliani accepted huge Saudi checks made out to his consulting business, "Giuliani Partners.”

The original $10 million Saudi check was made out to the "Twin Towers Fund"------- Rudy's tax-exempt charity headed by his then-mistress Judith Nathan. Rudy appointed Arnold Schwarzenegger to the Board of Directors.

THIS IS COMICAL Giulaini kept referring to Nathan as a "philanthropist." Arnie used the tax-exempt "Twin Towers Fund" to help him launch his profit-making movie, "Collateral Damage," with Rudy and his entourage joining in on the gala premiere event.

I agree, Rudie, so stay out—you can’t win.

THE GOP better wake up to ending vote laws that enact fraud that Obama put in place.

NO ID REQUIRED TO VOTE (NOT JUST STUDENTS WHEN I VOTED IN NOV. I DID NOT HAVE TO SHOW ID AND I AM NOT A STUDENT!)

“...We need Reagan!...”

Reagan’s gone. We were lucky to have ONE like him in one lifetime.

Not a fan of Rudy either - at all - but what do you propose if that’s the choice we’re faced with - FuBO or Rudy?

In the event that happens, I think the show stopper is getting control of the Senate and the House, with the aim of limiting (or deadballing) any damage or mischeif he tries to do from the White House.

We’re living in some strange f**ing times, gentlemen, and I think we need to take whatever opportunity we can to remove the FuBO from the White House, sanitize and fumigate it, and start geting our people in place.

Rudy may not be “our” people, but he is a damn sight better than the marxist POS we have now.

Just my two cents.

For the record, I would rather see Sarah run for it, but I don’t think it’s going to happen.

I like Bachmann a lot, for sure. She’s a fire-breather, and will definitely capture those amongst us of like mind. I’d vote for her in a heartbeat.

All I’m saying is that some of these choices are made way out of our control (i.e., McCain).

As I said for the record, I can’t stand Rudy - he’s a gun-grabber and supports killing babies. That makes him TOTALLY unacceptable in my book.

But faced with that choice, what do we do? Let the Marxist POS win again? That’s unacceptable as well - we’de be lucky to last four years without a civil war tearing the country further apart...

Bad juju either way, brother...

GOP says 5,000 non-citizens voting in Colorado a 'wake-up call' for states
By Debbie Siegelbaum, TheHill.com
http://thehill.com/homenews/house/153079-gop-says-5000-non-citizens-voting-in-colorado-a-wake-up-call-for-states

Republicans on the House Administration Committee want to shore up voter registration rules in the wake of a Colorado study that found as many as 5,000 non-citizens in the state took part in last year’s election.

Rep. Gregg Harper (R-Miss.), the panel’s chairman, called the study “a disturbing wake-up call” that should cause every state to review its safeguards to prevent illegal voting. “We simply cannot have an electoral system that allows thousands of non-citizens to violate the law and vote in our elections. We must do more to protect the integrity of our electoral processes,” Harper added. Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler, a Republican, told the panel that his department’s study identified nearly 12,000 people who were not citizens but were still registered to vote in Colorado.

Of those non-citizen registered voters, nearly 5,000 took part in the 2010 general election in which Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet narrowly defeated Republican John Buck. Colorado conducted the study by comparing the state’s voter registration database with driver’s license records. “We know we have a problem here. We don’t know the size of it,” Gessler said in testimony to Administration’s Elections subcommittee.

He told Harper that Colorado would look to create a registration system that would allow his department to ask that some people provide proof of their citizenship in writing. If individuals did not respond to the request, their registration as voters would be suspended.

Rep. Charles Gonzalez (D-Texas) raised doubts about the reporting, noting that the study itself said it was based on inconclusive data and that it was “impossible to provide precise numbers” on how many people who were registered to vote in the state were not citizens. Gonzalez asked Gessler, a former prosecutor, if he would have pursued a court case on such evidence. Gessler responded that the goal of the study was to expose voter registration issues and pursue administrative avenues to resolve them. “We don’t have a screen for citizenship on the front end when people register to vote,” he said.

===========================================

REFERENCE How many registered to vote using multiple identities? Evidence shows illegals establish several identities with phony SS nos and fake documents (which "impoverished immigrants" buy from traveling document brokers for several thousand dollars).

Illegal Jose Madrigal, the Washington state rapist, had some 30 identities.

EACH FAKE IDENTITY COLLECTS US GOVT FREEEBIES,
--- AND AS EVERY DESPERATE DEMOCRAT KNOWS ---
EACH ILLEGAL IDENTITY VOTES AND VOTES AND VOTES

BUMP!

We can all gripe on a computer screen about RINO’s this one that one and how to beat Obama but until every person voting has to show ID no one we put in will beat Obama.

If all we are faced with are candidates that are too far right so that they can’t win the general election, then that’s when I’d reconsider doing it.”

This masquerades as reason for some Freepers here? Really?

What candidate is NOT to the right of Rudy??

“...too far right...”

Just exactly what IS “too far right”?

We’ve GOT a “resident” who’s as far left as you can go (short of re-education camps), and that’s somehow OK with a portion of the country???

Anybody looks “too far right” compared to this assclown.

I find it interesting that less than 2 months ago, Rudy said he thought Sarah Palin was “electable” and that she would make a “great President.” Now he’s talking about entering the race. In fact, he even mentioned in that same interview that he might reconsider it...

Rudy and Sarah seem to get along, excepting some major policy disagreements. And Rudy is too far LEFT to get the nomination from the BASE of the Republican Party. But if he DID run, he’d take a lot of wind out of the sails of guys like MittRomney, and Mitch Daniels, and maybe Tim Pawlenty. Perhaps he’d even take a little from Mike Huckabee.

A Rudy candidacy might, in short, help Sarah. And it couldn’t hurt Sarah — or other Conservatives for that matter. Interesting....
