George Will Goes Nuclear On Mother Of Five!
tea party tribune ^ | 5/29/11 | jim funkhouser

Posted on 05/29/2011 4:59:47 PM PDT by HMS Surprise

Shall I channel George Will’s brain? The following is NOT misogyny! No, really! But it is what he’s probably thinking…

It’s a “threshold question” you see. In other words, according to the King of the RINOs, it’s out of his hands. It’s not that he wouldn’t love to see a real conservative in the White House, it’s just that she can’t pass the nuclear litmus test and therefore the entire question is moot. Palin cannot be President, like say a Joe Biden (snicker), because she is a… Here we go again!

A corollary to Godwin’s Law, according to me and me alone: If a talking-head RINO is truly terrified that a real anti- eastablishment conservative might actually win the Republican nomination, he or she will first… wet themselves, then immediately proffer the theory that so and so cannot possibly be trusted with a single thermonuclear device, let alone the vast arsenal our Armed Forces have at their disposal… OK, it needs a digest version, but you get the drift.

They said Reagan was too unstable to be near the red button too.

Look where Reagan got us.

Our enemies SHOULD think we have a madman at the ready.

George Will on Palin: "Should we give this person nuclear weapons?"

George Will on Obama: "Barack Obama...is refreshingly cerebral"

Besides disagreeing in generally about Will’s conclusions,I must also disagree with him about threshold questions about fingers on nuclear buttons.

Most people alive today do not remember the Cuban missle crisis. It is something we read in history books. The Spaniards voted in socialist not because they would keep NATO from lobbing nukes, but in part because they decided that withdrawal from engagement with terrorist-related factions on the battlefield might keep their trains from being blown up. Urban liberals think this way, too. Younger urban conservatives are willing to deter would be terrorists by direct action against the terrorists.

The red button talk is more of an afterthought for the vast majority.

Kissinger used this to our advantage when he implied to the Russians that Nixon was just a little bit unpredictable, as in unstable, when crossed...

Of course, Will, having never done a thing in his privileged life, isn't smart enough to see what he is squandering here.

He can trust people who have no qualms at killing human beings, but doesn’t trust a woman who values all life, even ones that were deliberately killed by German doctors and millions of Americans? And he is worried about her having the power to make life and death decisions?

Very irrational thinking, indeed, Mr. Will. Maybe it is time for you to retire.

IMHO,there’s only one reason Will has lasted on the panel of ABC without David for so many years. He carries as much water for the left as for us. It’s a must for the DBM.

Is it me or did Will really mess up here.

Eon's ago we had a thread about Palin's Security Clearance given Alaska like Hawaii has a 24/7 Guard and the Governor has to be in the loop of all the latest and greatest toys they have to protect us, and maybe even make decisions.

I got a lot of feedback, ya or nay if she did, but the question begs, did she have a Higher Clearance than McCain, Obama or Biden? If so why not trust her with the football?

If she did, Will has really stepped in it, big time...

Sarah or Obama is easy for us... I just wonder if Will can choose her now that he has poisoned his well? I’m sure that the Dems are already planning to use his soundbite. George Will is either an absolute moron, or a closet lib.

Will never served in the military. Obama never served, registered, and deeply hates America. The Obama loving Bush daughters never served, neither did the Gore kids, Neither did Chelsea Clinton. Have any of Mitt’s boys served? Or are they doing like daddy did in Vietnam, getting deferrments as a missionary in France?

Sarah has a son in the Army, who has served in a combat zone. I trust Sarah. And i think she cares about what is important to me. Bush didnt, Obama doesnt, Mitt doesn’t, etc,,,

I've been a reader of George Will for over 30 years or more. George Will is a lot of things. I've agreed with him more than disagreed with him. But one thing he is not is a RINO. And it's nothing short of idiotic to call him one. He's been consistent over the years. No one here can can point out where Will has been anything but a strict conservative. And George Will was a huge supporter and friend of Ronald Reagan. And Will was a conservative before Palin was even born.

If Will is against Palin, it's because he really believes she cannot win. It's not because he disagrees with her issues. Now it's an arguable point as to whether Palin could win a general election against Obama. But I'm betting George Will and I are having the very same nightmare. It's waking up the first Wednesday in Nov 2012 and seeing the paper headlines where Obama has defeated Palin in the general election. End of America as we knew it.

The real litmus test for Pres should be:
1. Change a tire.
2. Find your way to the nearest major city without GPS.
3. Unclog a toilet.
4. Load and discharge the weapon of your choice.
5. Describe what happens on a 3/2 count with bases loaded.
6. Recite the Boy Scout Pledge. (Or at least come close)
7. Successfully use a can opener.
8. Make pancakes.
9. Describe the universe.
10. Change a diaper.

7 out of 10 is passing the THRESHOLD.

Are you getting fed up with the Bush women, post Bush WH, like I am? First Laura Bush writes her spiteful little bio, letting us know that she's pro-abortion, pro same-sex "marriage" and lets us all know what that amnesty disaster came from...it came from George listening too much to the Bush women.

Since I know a few Texas aristos, I know they do dearly love all their illegal alien servants cleaning up after them, picking up the doggie do on the Rose Garden lawn, teaching their shiftless daughters to speak Spanish like their shiftless mother.

No more Bushes, and no more lazy Bush housewives who want to pay off their help with open borders!

It was bad enough when Goldwater was accused by liberals of being too crazy to be trusted with the finger on the button. But when you have the epitome of a Washington insider like George calling another conservative untrustworthy, then it’s unconscionable. Apparently Will has no problem with Obama or Biden being in charge of the nuclear decision. I know Will is a pretty smart guy, but WHAT THE HE## IS WRONG WITH HIM!!! Does he actually believe Obama is better for the defense of the country than Sarah Palin? Will is rapidly losing any confidence non-Beltway conservatives have in him. I’m sorry George, we’re getting tired of nominating Rinos.

Just when did Will not support Ronald Reagan? I remember those years well and Will always supported RR. The only thing that they disagreed about was the Panama Canal Tready. There Will came down on the Side of William F. Buckley Jr. and other condervatives as well. Please tell me how Will is a RINO? Give me some examples of stands he has made that are against rock solid conservate principles.

What is relevant is that she has killed and dressed

has the steel to do it again as often as necessary.

Listen up....George Will never was a HUGE SUPPORTER of Reagan! In 1980 George Will first choice to face Jimmy Carter was Howard Baker and then he went to George H.W. Bush and then only a week before the election did he relented and got fully behind Reagan and said that he hope he wasn’t wrong with backing him...George Will is a RINO elite and smug one at that!!

Sounds a lot like a Heinlein quote...

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
