It never ceases to amaze me how conservatives are so fractured while the Dems are so unified. No wonder the GOP is in trouble.

Put up a “good” or even a “great” candidate and conservatives will bitch. Whether the candidate doesn’t support “X” or fully supports “Y” then that position is a fatal flaw, making the candidate completely untenable and unelectable ... to them. Perfect is the enemy of good.

The Dems, on the other hand, coalesce behind whatever commie-du-jour they pick for office. I can think of countless reasons why Hillary is dangerous to the country, but we all know the Dems will line up behind her like a Roman Legion preparing for battle.

I don’t CARE that Sarah Palin isn’t a MENSA member. I don’t CARE that she gave up her governorship to save Alaska from the cost of lawsuits against her. I don’t CARE that her writing isn’t perfect.

As near as I can tell, Sarah Palin believes in the same things I believe. Sarah Palin respects America, respects the Constitution and respects the innate intelligence and goodness and backbone Americans. She gets it. And we need what she’s got.

But some of you boneheads are going to nit-pick her to death, attacking each and every character flaw or unsteady position she might hold, while the Dems keep hammering the chains that our great-grandchildren will wear.

When the lights finally go out, some of you people will be sitting in the dark still waiting for that one, perfect, flawless candidate to appear. Good luck with that.

If the republican party does not turn from their progressive ways, that woman you so disdain will destroy the gop and she will not be alone in that endeavor. Levin is in... Limbaugh will come... Hannity will blow with the new Conservative wind also... Ingraham and Coulter will be there... and Sarah is the only Conservative today that can pull it off. BTW... IQ 158 here and I enjoy the way Sarah talks and writes... and just for the record... I puke blood when I listen the great orator o’bunghole... and all of the “right people” say he is the greatest orator of all time. His two ghost written fictions are hailed as the pinnacle of modern writing. I'll take simple Sarah any day... she is one of us and one of us is worth 100 of them!

Sarah Palin ended her political career the day she quit the governership. This is a great Facebook post (and written perfectly, BTW) but it is only a FB post.

She took more crap than anyone I’ve ever seen and had every right to exercise her choice and quit. If she had not, she would have been a national force again. But she did quit.

Rice is pro-abortion. She voted for Obama (because she is black before she is an American). Not a good idea to team up Sarah with another RINO loser. If you’re looking for a smart, capable, black female there are plenty of them out there without scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Especially after hearing his father speak at the Freedomworks event last night.

Yeah right... and sparky ended his career when he quit the Senate after only serving 1.5 years and won the presidency as the most powerful anti American force to ever do so. Keep it up and your candidate will get about 22% of the popular vote. Sarah has done more for Conservatism in the past 6 years, than any other politician alive today. She doesn't even hold an office or have a daily talk show. You know the truth because you read here. You know why she resigned her office. Look at moo-cowsky... she battled and won the governorship from that female dog's daddy and because of that... the left (including the leftard republican state party in Alaska) set out to destroy her and her family. moo-cowsky the progressive voting republican Senator from Alaska... a woman elected by democrats... was selected by that same machine. She did what she had to do and you know it. Two words for you... Freedom Party!

You known, I get sick and tired of so called conservatives using leftist tactics and talking points against Sarah. If one thinks that Sarah isn’t the best fit for office then that’s fine - to each is his own. But I get exasperated when the right attack Sarah the way the left do on superfluous notions. If a conservative cant figure out with all of the information out there on why Sarah was being bankrupt out of office and still cry about how she quit without explaining what they would do then I suspect that person to be either a RINO supporter or a troll

The State Department categorically denied Kerry was on his boat. Yet CBS had pictures to prove it.

I'm not surprised Democrats lie it's who they are... I'm surprised CBS didn't fire the guy who took the pictures and suppress the truth. CBS is a known enabler for all democrats - no matter how corrupt.

“Why is it that Democrats’ first instinct is to lie?”

It is apparently due to their core DNA. They are incapable of telling the truth.

They hate people, who dare to tell the truth about them and their beloved lying leaders.

“I’m no boat person, but is that a dog collar around his neck??”

I own 3 kayaks and would never put anything around my neck, If anyone did it with me in a tandem, they would never go out again with me.

Bringing a kayak alongside a dock or a boat and standing up to get from the yak to the boat or dock can be very dangerous.

That picture could be used as a training video of what not to do in a yak.

I recall it being said, by an old cohort of Bill Clinton when he was governor: "He'd rather climb a tree and tell a lie, than stand on the ground and tell the truth." That quote always stuck with me and hasn't been proven wrong since.

I remember relating the quote to a co-worker during Clinton's first campaign for POTUS and the reaction was, "So what, they all lie," and I replied that "character" was everything and truth-telling paramount in our public officials. It's about trust. We've lost confidence in most of our officials during the last two decades and it seemingly doesn't much matter to a majority of the electorate.

She resigned from office. She failed the test. Retreat IS in her D.N.A., apparently, despite her claims to the contrary.

You fail to see the brilliance of that move.

Sarah Palin's enemies expected her to remain in office and continue taking the pummeling. Instead, she freed herself of the constraints of office and took the battle directly to them. You can bet her enemies were flummoxed by her BOLD move and have been sorry ever since.

She changed the battle front and redefined the war. Look at what Palin has accomplished since. Remember the grassroots victory in 2010? Just watch what happens in 2014. The best is yet to come.

I refer you to post #91.

Only a Facebook post? Sarah Palin has over 3.5 million followers on facebook. I shared her post with my list of nearly 800 friends along with 9964 others who also shared it with their friends or followers. The MSM will pick it up and write endlessly about it. I'd say that's pretty powerful stuff.

She took more crap than anyone I’ve ever seen and had every right to exercise her choice and quit. If she had not, she would have been a national force again. But she did quit.

Where is it written that only people holding office can be considered a "national force"? And to be honest, Sarah hasn't taken ANY crap. Not once has she shrunk from the battle. Again, her resigning as governor was a battle strategy, not a surrender. She is THEE MAJOR force in taking back our country, all politicians be damned.

I appreciate you posting this 'one more time', as I had not seen it before

It has been many months, perhaps a year.

The point of the post as well as others by myself is to condense a general theme into a precise statement.

Then, time reveals the accuracy of the statement.

I have been posting that one for years.

The communists have yet to disprove any part of it... :-)

If the "X" or "Y" concerns abortion, then I guarantee you that Democrats would NOT line up behind a Pro-Life candidate no matter what his/her other credentials are. Heck, they wouldn't even let Bob Casey speak at their convention! This issue (denying the fundamental right to LIFE) IS a fatal flaw in any candidate I would vote for since it is something that influences ALL other rights. No Democrat on the national stage would be nominated much less elected who did not fully support abortion-on-demand.
