Skip to comments.Chris Wallace on Palin Interview: First Time I Ever Thought ‘This Women Is A Serious Candidate’
Posted on 06/05/2011 12:13:24 PM PDT by rface
After interviewing Sarah Palin, Chris Wallace talked about her with his panel of guests and revealed that he was very impressed with her appearance. Unlike previous times when he interviewed her, Wallace noticed this wasnt just you betcha she was pretty sharp on the issues.
Wallace was eager to see if anyone else agreed with his review of Palins interview:
I thought she was a boffo performance today. It was the first time that I ever saw her and thought this woman is a serious if she decides to run candidate for President. And a serious possibility to be President.

“Kick their butts, again, Mommy.”
Kimberly Strassel didn’t say all that much IMHO but if you read her hit piece in the wSJ on Palin you get her take. She’s upset that Palin is not a rino. She claims she quit her job as governor and on and and on and on usual msm/DBM pap,sad little writer.
I take a backseat to no one, not even you, in my enthusiasm about a Palin candidacy. Having said that, a Ryan-Rubio ticket would excite me very much. And if those 2 did jump in, I believe that Palin would not declare. She has always said that she would jump in if there weren’t a conservative candidate in the race. Ryan and Rubio fit the bill.
It was fine for FOX NEWS to semi get behind the TEA Party last year and in 2009 but as we approached the Presidential elections the “Establishment” in FOX NEWS is starting to read its ugly head, notice how they continue to push Christie, and Daniels when he was at the time the flavor of the month , and although they know that probably a majority of their viewers are probably not Romney supports, they continue to push him as well.
“Welcome to the Party Pal!”
Panelist Kimberly Strassel (Princeton) panned Palin (Idaho). Thus she joins Krauthammer (Harvard), Frum (Dartmouth) and Will (Oxford and Princeton) in hammering Palin’s temerity in entertaining delusiuons that she too might sit in the thrones of power hitherto reserved to graduates of Ivy League institutions. Watch the vid if you like, but the condescension oozes from this conceited pseudo-intellectual pundit.
I have never understood what her negatives are.
It is pretty much the same everydat. They have the same panalists on all the time especially the liberals. I get tired of Ron Williams and his constant “Your always picking on the oresident”, even when people are right. I can’t watch Colmes and his constant whining, Fox just seems to be getting more and more liberals to tyhe point it is starting top look like the view. Four liberals and one weak conservative.
I didn’t read Kimberly Strassel’s essay. I’ve heard her express her Palin opinions on Paul Gigot’s Fox News Show, the name of which escapes at this moment.
and what makes you think that Ryan would jump into the race? he already said this past week that its a no again
Go stifle it Chris. she doesnt need your accolades.
Quite interesting that Kimberly Strassel would not answer Wallace’s question about his interview with Sarah. Kim on Friday apparently wrote about Sarah needing to discuss more policy and instead of telling Wallace Sarah did or didn’t do better on policy during his interview, she just reiterated what Sarah needs to do. IMO, Sarah is doing a much better job articulating her position and she is showing a much better command of policy issues. She will have to continue on this path to convince others, as she may have done with Wallace, that she is a smart enough and therefore, a serious candidate. People like Kim will just keep thinking what they have always thought because “they are” their positions and can’t be wrong so they can’t change their opinions. It takes a whole lot of self confidence to say “hey, perhaps I was wrong”. Clearly Wallace is rethinking his position on Sarah.
She said that Palin must talk issues/policy. That’s all she did in this interview and it’s typically all she ever does. I remember some time ago, she was asked (by Barbara Walters, I believe) what one good thing she could say about 0bama. The same question was posed to Liz Cheney by Chris Wallace. Till that answer/occasion, I had believed Cheney to be the sharper woman. Cheney responded, “He’s a good family man. He obviously loves his children, ....” This was Palin’s response: He’s a man of much charisma and great political gifts, and I would like to see him use those gifts to ..... (she inserted all his insufficiencies in the blank. It’s always all about policy to her. Kimberly Strassel’s either has never seen her on TV or just decided to repeat what she’s heard. Neither possibility lends her opinions any credence.
Check out Dame Thatcher early on.
She got much better.
I wonder if less influence from Hume is allowing this slippage to the center, now that he’s semi-retired. And of course you have to wonder about the Saudi influence too.
Roger Ailes is no dummy, but his network is now vulnerable on the right if someone with deep pox would scrap this “fair and balanced” crap and just have an unapologetically conservative network. What Fox has lost in ratings over the past year would by itself make a strong cable viewership.
I noted that today. She “sounded” different.
Nothing leads me to believe that he would jump in. All I said was that if he did, I would support his candidacy. In the interim, as far as Palin is concerned, I’m all in.
MSM says her negatives are high, but you should note they never mention what those negatives are...In reality the negatives are that they don’t like her.....
