Amen, sister. Sarah was the first to say that she'd never run as a VP candidate again. It's in her book.
A lot of Freepers just put you on their 'watch' list, with that comment. Not a threat - just a fact.
Little hint....if you want to blend in, you'll have to learn to speak like a real conservative.
Comparing her to a treasonous incompetent doesn't render her qualified, at least by my standards. Any such metric is subjective anyway.
I hold military CIC as a high fraction of presidential responsibilities. I'm with Patton there, especially as regards having read the classics in many fields by which to understand the context of the present. One simply cannot understand the guy across the table with whom one is negotiating or across the battlefield without knowing his country's history.
One simply cannot understand what is wrong with regulation of manufacturing without having learned how manufacturing works. Look at how Reagan traveled the country to learn exactly that. Look at how he studied Montesquieu, or Locke.
Reagan was nobody's "amiable dunce" because he had done his homework for years with his feet in many a manufacturing plant, and DID NOT rely upon his advisers to tell him what to think (think "tear down this wall," which his advisers tried to cut from the speech). Such is exactly my criticism of her in that I believe the RINOs think they can lead her down the primrose path with a clauqe of whispering "experts." She just hasn't done that background work with which to develop an appropriate ground of skepticism.
Simply quoting Hayek doesn't mean one has grasped Hayek, or any other pivotal philosopher. For example, I'm reading up on Titus Lucretius Carus. Why, is he obscure. Well, to the philosophers who were informing the founders of this country, absolutely not; he was pivotal. I simply see no sign of that kind of curiosity in Sarah Palin in any field.
The election would be a blow out. Palin won't be bought off and the insiders know it.
The country needs her, not a liberal like Romney ..
If she had been a man; the Gop-e would had tied themselves to that (like they are doing with Rubio) ..Jealously in the media that she has the brains to govern, has a great family, a moral compass that guides her (being pretty, sends them into orbit) We like her for being real.
I can think of one off the top of my head right away: energy policy.
I can think of a second which is her passion for the right to life and how it was reflected not in her religious and personal views but how readily she embraced motherhood to a child with Down's Syndrome and became an advocate for parents of children with special needs.
In both of these areas, her curiosity and passions were real and from within.
From your lips to God’s ear, but how do you figure Mitt will be dumped and replaced?
—George HW Bush
Probably! I wonder if he lives out that way?
“Palin will end up as the GOP nominee. You heard it here first. The GOP-e is preparing to dump Mitt. Watch for it.”
May I recommend a large (64oz.) glass of reality.
“Wake up and get real. Palin, as much as I love her, and wish she were our candidate, IS NOT GOING TO BE THE ONE GETTING THE NOD THIS YEAR!”
That’s the problem with newbies like you, you don’t really know us REAL conservatives think. :-)
But you are right when you say that Moderates are the purist bloc of them all, they won't vote for ANYONE, unless they agree with them, on all things.
Willing Blind Fools I say.
Re fight to life and energy, passion yes, curiosity and intelligence, no.
I (totally) agree.
Romney / Palin.
We’re so busy fighting the democrats that we’re losing the war badly. We see it all the time. Conservatives blaming democrats for things that have been going on for decades (even when the GOP was in control) and then screaming that we’ve got to elect republicans no matter how bad they are even if they’ll continue doing the liberal thing.
In this thread about energy independence it doesn’t take long for someone to come running to declare that Mitt St Jesus will save us from the EPA and it will be boomtimes in the energy industry. Obama doesn’t help matters much but he sure as hell didn’t start this decades old decline and Romney isn’t about to stop it.
Its Funny, Dems have to Campaign as Conservatives (I saw an ad for Claire McCaskil and she sounded like she wanted to be the second coming of Goldwater, but I know it is all lies)
And Repubs think they have to be liberals to win elections, when in truth that costs them more elections than I can count-2008,1996, the Congressional elections of 2006 etc etc.
Cheney really needs to ask himself: “Self. How many Republicans in ‘08 cast their votes for Sarah Palin OVER McCain, because McCain, in their minds, was a certain loser?”
I think he’s be shocked by the answer.
Oh Sarah...why oh why didnt you run??
Death threats against her, her children, her extended family. There are more than enough Bill Ayers types on the left to carry out such threats.
