Former McCain Adviser Nicolle Wallace Trashes Sarah Palin on 'The View'
breitbart.com ^ | 14 Mar 2014, 3:07 PM PDT | by Tony Lee

Posted on 03/14/2014 3:14:22 PM PDT by gooblah

Nicolle Wallace, former adviser to the McCain-Palin 2008 presidential campaign who worked with Steve Schmidt, appeared on The View on Thursday and gushed over Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, and even Bill Clinton. Predictably, however, she trashed Sarah Palin.

Wallace has tried to blame Palin for the incompetence she and the McCain team displayed during the 2008 campaign against then-Senator Barack Obama.

The program played a clip from Game Change, which has been called out for numerous lies and inaccuracies, that allowed Wallace to whack Palin as someone who had a "gap in her knowledge" about issues. She didn't mention that if there were any gaps, it was her responsibility as her chief adviser to fill them. Wallace blamed the McCain campaign's loss on Palin's interview with Katie Couric, leaving out that Wallace is Couric's friend and that the interview--which was heavily edited--took place over multiple days.

You can judge a politician - in this case McCain - by the company he keeps or employs. These vermin belong under a rock.

In 2008, I voted for Sarah Palin. The other guy on her ticket was just an accessory.

I guess no one told the little princess that 90% of the people that voted for Mclame/Palin voted for the Palin half of the ticket while holding their nose against the stink of the Mclame half.

I voted for Sarah. Not McLame and I would do it again in a heart beat. And Ms Nobody I would not go on the View if they paid me an guaranteed to fumigate the set before I got on.

I can’t wonder if Palin’s “gaps in knowledge” were issues where Palin refused to toe McCain’s line.

The “gaps in her knowledge” were all invented by liberals. She never said Africa is a country, and never said she could see Russia from her house. When she said she didn’t know what the Bush Doctrine was, no one else at the time did either. It was an invented term to make her look stupid. Does anyone know what the Obama Doctrine is? I do, but any liberal you ask will not.

This is freaking 6 years later. Sarah Palin has gone through fire and ice since that campaign. I think she was a smart cookie then (smarter than Biden), but even if she weren’t she would eat this ninny alive for breakfast and pick her teeth with te bones.

Just another “Republican” prostitute, that’s all. Just another one who sells themselves to the Left for fame and fortune by renouncing those who raised them.

Wallace is nothing more than a political whore, just like Schmidt.

“Palin’s interview with Katie Couric, leaving out that Wallace is Couric’s friend and that the interview—which was heavily edited—took place over multiple days.”

Couric Studied With Anti-Palin Advisers Before Palin Interview

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/tim-graham/2008/11/14/couric-studied-anti-palin-advisers-palin-interview

When couric interviews Democrats, how often does she approach Republicans on how to do her interviews?

‘Wallace blamed the McCain campaign's loss on Palin’s interview with Katie Couric, leaving out that Wallace is Couric’s friend and that the interview—which was heavily edited—took place over multiple days.’

Wallace constantly badgered Palin about doing the interview. Palin’s one really bad trait as a political figure, her unwillingness to wield the baseball bat on annoying underlings did her in. Instead of saying “No, and no means no and STFU about doing anything with that treacherous b-tch.” ( That would have been the sort of language b-tch Nicole would have understood.) Plain let herself be worn down by Wallace's continual whining and cajoling. The rest is history. Palin has a track record for just not being mean enough with underperforming/ and , or treacherous and untrustworthy underlings while governor. She is just too decent and nice a person and to use a forbidden phrase ‘too much of a Christian’ to be fully effective in an arena that requires a certain degree of visceral meanness to both survive and just be respected by the other predators.

Same here. When he selected Palin as his RM, I thought, “He must have more brains than I give him credit for!” Sadly, that was not the case.

Nicolle isn't going far enough.

She should also blame Sarah Palin for the incompetence McCain showed in the 2000 primary campaign, which he lost to George W. Bush.

Former McCain Adviser Nicolle Wallace Trashes Sarah Palin on 'The View'

LOL!

I was just idly wondering how many full-time people that the White House has monitoring Nicole Wallace's Facebook page 24/7/365 so she doesn't kick their *ss without warning with a couple of sentences in a well-crafted post...

Nicole, you stupid mercenary cow bimbo, shut up.

You have to feel sorry for Nicole Wallace. The only thing that makes her relevant is claiming she met Sarah Palin.

“Wallace, a 1990 graduate of Miramonte High School, received a B.A. in Mass Communications from the University of California, Berkeley and a master’s degree from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism”

In other words, she’s the person who tells a woman who has actually served in elective office and is the Governor of a state and VP candidate, that she has “gaps in knowledge”.

Aside from her own very sparse resume, I think it’s clear Ms. Wallace has a big gap of her own...between her ears.

Sometimes I wish Palin would have politely declined to be McCain’s running mate. Then she would have had a full term under her belt, and could have ran in 2012.

In September 2011, Wallace published the sequel to Eighteen Acres, It's Classified, about a fictional presidential campaign troubled by a mentally-ill vice presidential candidate.[24] Wallace said the premise was inspired by her experience as a Senior Adviser to the McCain/Palin campaign

I wasnt saying that the country would have been worse off. I am referring to the political fortunes of the republican party. If mccain had been elected, I imagine he would have carried on his backstabbing of his fellow republicans. I think he would have been a one termer and taken the republican party down with him and the democrats would gave emerged much stronger as a result.

Didn’t see the segment as I refuse to waste my time with The View but I am receiving plenty of John McCain pleas for donations via the RNC. I refuse to look at them too. It makes the day far less stressful. John you are not My Friend so stop addressing me in that regard. As for Nicolle Wallace, wasn’t she his political mistress of distress?

‘If mccain had been elected, I imagine he would have carried on his backstabbing of his fellow republicans. I think he would have been a one termer and taken the republican party down with him and the democrats would gave emerged much stronger as a result.’

The US would probably also be in a couple more ‘foreign contingencies’, maybe one with Russia and maybe heavily involved on the ground in Syria. John m has never seen a foreign imbroglio that he doesn't think can be improved by US forces being involved. It is some sort of psychological compensation for his POW experience.

has to say about ANYTHING?

Steve Schmidt has been hired by a gay rights group to get Chamber of Commerce member organizations to endorse and support gay marriage. It has been posited by those who have been inside the Beltway that Mr. Schmidt is a closeted queer. That would explain his visceral hatred for Palin and it certainly makes his new gig a classic payoff from the Beltway pink mafia.
