Skip to comments.Sarah Palin Is The Future Of The GOP
Posted on 06/16/2009 11:51:08 AM PDT by lewisglad
If the liberal loons would have just shut up after the election in 2008, perhaps Sarah Palin would have been forgotten, a mere footnote in history.
The problem is, the liberal loons just can't help themselves, and are genetically encoded to attack anyone with ideas they deem repellent.
If you're pro life, you're an superstitious idiot. If you're against homosexual marriages you're a evil bigot. If you dare to question global warming, you're a dupe for big business. If you own a gun and like to hunt you're a mindless barbarian.
We all know the predictable screed from the irrational leftist loons.
Sarah Palin reminds the progressive nutjobs of these things, and stands as a symbol for them to mobilize against, mock, and demean. Democrats have a long history of this, calling Ronald Reagan a cowboy, Bush 41 a secret spook, Quayle a dummy, and Bush 43 a boob.
Sarah Palin represents everything the goons on the left stand against.
When you add that to the fact she's smart, good looking, and has a deadly sense of humor-- well, you have the possibility the first female president of the USA could force the first black president of the USA out of office after one term.
Things had better go well for Obama in the next three years, because they will go swimmingly for Palin.
Palin has put together a deal with TransCanada, a pipeline building company, and Exxon, of the oil producing fame, to build a new pipeline from Alaska to the continental USA that will transport NATURAL gas.
I'm not sure many Americans yet realize, but natural gas is going to be a HUGE transitional fuel as we seek "independence from foreign oil supplies."
Natural gas is going to be a very large factor in fueling our cars, as well as our buildings, mainly because the USA has a very large reserve of natural gas at their disposal, and Palin has perfectly positioned herself to take advantage of this confluence of events.
This project ALONE will keep her in the news for the next few years, and I'm sure we can count on the leftist loons like David Letterman to keep her in the headlines as well.
Sarah Palin is the future of the GOP, if they know what's good for them.
I’m good friends with a Hunter supporter who keeps spouting the same talking point. You can dumbfound him when you ask him how Hunter could win a national election when he couldn’t even place in his own party’s primary.
So....you ARE saying....Obama has no “intellectual accomplishments” and is being used by “Big Money.” I agree. BUT, Sarah has to have “intellectual accomplishments” and we cannot USE HER to accomplish OUR Goals? I think that’s what most here are saying....she makes a great mouthpiece.....it’s the people in the background who orchestrate everything....except with Sarah she at least has Executive experience. Personally, I’d like her to be VP first, but we may not have time for that. (Yeah, she’s considered a “lightweight” by libs.....as if Obama is a HEAVYWEIGHT....BAAWWAAAHHHH)
Certainly not by anyone of consequence.
Her opposition is hoping to cast her in whatever negative light they can, but her performance has been anything but. She is marvelously adept in both politics, and in business. She really has no visible opposition in conservative politics at this point.
Therein lies the hopes of every RINO in the country. Truly an absurd statement. The loons have not shut up because they see the brilliance, charisma, and political aptitude that is going to make their lives difficult for the forseeable future.
Palin’s opposition is Big Media, who hate her, not Obama nor any other single person. The majority of voters, who are morons, let’s face it, develop their opinions from television. She has to conquer that forum before she can get anywhere.
It’s not that she lacks the ideas...she just doesn’t have the rap down, if I can use a Sixties expression...
//I AM an historian, after all...
She is center stage on the national scene exactly because she has proven all she needs to.
She is the only true conservative leader on the scene that isn't strapped to the microphone of the world's most popular radio program.
Progressives don't do what Sarah Palin does day in and day out. She's the only demonstrable conservative that holds an executive office presently.
Ah, so she's brilliant and charismatic because those who you yourself have labeled liberal loons say so? It's amazing how much credit you're willing to give them when it suits you. If it weren't so pathetic and downright sad, it would be funny.
She is visibly in command of that 'forum' at present. She dismantled David Letterman (or possibly more correctly helped him do it to himself) with just three sentences. Should she allow herself to descend to the level of pop culture, she'll be no more than a female Huckabee.
You’re still the master of self-contradicting statements I see. A lot of words to say nothing at all; how much per word are you paid?
George Will is irrelevant
That people want Big Government and its smorgasbord of services, from a Coast Guard rescue organization to the FAA to the Interstate Commerce Commission and Medicaid/Medicare?
With the way people are waking up to the big spending, you will see a gradual shift back to free market solutions and limited government. And that's where Palin will capitalize on.
I think the thing with Letterman was grandstanding.
She had every right to be personally insulted, but to say his comment about her daughter threatened the self-esteem of millions of young women was hyperbolic and ludicrous, and the kind of thing that drives people away.
Instead of playing to every media outlet in the world, she should have simply called him an *sshole, then sat back and smiled. That would have been impressive. Understatement is more effective than showing up on the tube again and again and again, saying the same thing over and over.
Thanks for your reply, you are kind to have sympathy for me. I understand people mean well. Life is tough and sometimes it’s not always easy for people to see what is right. I know I always have to consider that possibility myself.
Don’t go knocking people who went to college, Palin went and it appears she is in the habit of doing a bit of plagiarism. That would explain why a college grad is so inarticulate. This country is in a big heck of trouble. Palin is the conservative version of Clinton. And that is very bad news for the survival of this country since so many in the conservative cause are enabling Palin’s lack of ethics. Ethics 101 teaches that the ends don’t justify the means. And that is a lesson that the journalist major missed. Of course, who needs to learn lessons when you cheat. It is clear, open your eyes! Academics doesn’t matter? Bull, it matters to Palin, only she didn’t want to do the work!
Mitt says the bonus check is in the mail already, you can stand down.
oh god, I don’t even know where to start on this one. get over your hatred for the woman. If you don’t like her, don’t vote for her. I will and I support her loyally.
You know what, I like Mitt, but I really don’t need him to be president. I sure could use the money though, I hope it arrives in time for lunch!
You’re a mainstream liberal.
Your idea of grandstanding is dependent on political affiliation. Your moral standards appear to be secular, and not too far from the traditional liberal “live and let live.”
She didn’t “play every media ouitlet...” she said what was called for and proper without stooping to your gutter-level vernacular. And she didn’t “show up again and again...” as your leftist talking point email offered. She blew him off the globe with her first comment, and responded briefly to his “apologies.”
Since the best critique you have is my little slip up I am glad you agree with substance of my point. Even though I value education it really is not the full measure of any man (or woman)
Also who is “us’
Sensibility is a commodity oft overlook now days especially among those who like to claim educational and intellectual superiority.
Wow that’s a change.
Agreed. What I really find disconcerting is the near religious (can you say Obama?) reverence some seem to have for Palin, yet no one can articulate a good reason for her perceived superiority. It’s also some nebulous, vacant comment about her being one of “us”, common sense, a “real” American.
I’ve come to realize that to many, if you live in a municipality with population larger than your average apartment complex, you’re regarded as some sort of city dwelling alien with no concept of reality. This is the person that seems to be drawn to Palin worship the most heavily.
McGruff, Sarah Palen called herself a Progressive.
How long are you going to deny reality?
Perhaps. But you beg the question: How do you quantify sensibility? Academic success and intellectual accomplishments are easily identified and understood. Sensibility like you attribute to your grandfather is much less so. As a matter of fact, without intimately knowing someone, I’d say it would be impossible to gauge. Even knowing someone, it’s extremely subjective and IMHO unreliable.
And, THEN you said...."Instead of playing to every media outlet in the world, (Which as you say the MORONS watch) she should have simply called him an *sshole, then sat back and smiled."
WHICH is IT? Or is it she cannot do the media, but the Dems can? This is what got us where we are. I love that she's Alinskying them.
You have arrived. The vitamin hawking editor boy has called you a liberal. Now you know you’re making sense.
While I value education, have worked in the field at the collegiate level in the classroom, have always advised students and young friends to pursue an education as far as they can, and have used it as a factor in hiring in my own business, I also have perspective on its limitations.
How does one judge the performance of an individual with a myriad of degrees certifications etc. until they actually perform their job? Certainly academic success can demonstrate the ability to complete tasks of varying levels of difficulty. You get a known quantity certainly, but will it apply to the task at hand.
It is like I used to tell my new hires fresh from school. You have the degree or certs so I know you can use the terms properly in a sentence, now lets see if you can actually do something with it.
Looking back one who places so high a price on education above all else would have dismissed Ronald Reagan as having mediocre abilities at best and William Jefferson Clinton as being an all-star.
We see how that worked out.
I give the same deference to Palin. I don't know if I will support her in the long run, but a lack of educational bonafides or "ivy" (got it right that time) league credentials does not make her an idiot nor does a lack of knowledge in certain areas make her an ignoramus. Indeed to rise to the level she has in her career does require at least a modicum of ability and intelligence regardless of the political persuasion. Furthermore dismissing her for those reason is exactly her strength in many ways. It is always the one you least expect that tend to get you in the end.
Please take me off your “I hate Sarah Palin because she is better looking than I am” ping list.
I don’t have a ping list. I was replying to your post #114.
“I dont have a ping list. I was replying to your post #114.”
Not even a “Petty, baseless charges of progressivism” ping list?
No, because the words Progressive and Feminist came from Sarah’s own mouth.
You should be mad at her, not me.
“No, because the words Progressive and Feminist came from Sarahs own mouth.
You should be mad at her, not me.”
I’m not mad at you. I’m amused that you think she’s a Progressive and a Feminist in the grand leftist tradition.
By the way, you posted the words “progressive and feminist” - does that make you one? That is how idiotic your comments are.
There are things to criticize about every politician, but that’s not a reasonable one for Palin - you just look petty, silly, and catty in doing so.
If you going to dislike Sarah, please find concrete, ideological reasons to do so. Otherwise, you're nothing more than a sheep to the MSM lies.
If you believe her words have no meaning, why support her?
“If you believe her words have no meaning, why support her?”
You take her words out of the proper context, and you extrapolate to an annoying extent about her political positions and motives.
So ironically, her words as you portray them, say more about you, than her, specifically, that you will stop at very little to oppose Palin. You’ve got lots of company.
That’s ok, that’s politics. So far, the GOP has nobody - and I mean nobody that is conservative. She’s it. So, the real question is - why don’t you support her - really. It’s not because she’s a feminist, and it’s not because she’s a progressive - she is neither in the “political left” sense. So what is it??
Unlike you, I’ll take Palin at her word.
“Words mean things.”
- Rush Limbaugh, Undeniable Truth
“Unlike you, Ill take Palin at her word.”
Your psychological angst would keep an army of Freud’s busy for years.
On second thought, I would've used the term, "woodies" instead of "crushes"...that's about what it amounts to..
I was going to wait till the primaries to decide who to support, but because of the vile comments coming from Palin bashers such as yourself, Rodeo Moma, and elitist boobs like Peggy Noonan and David Frum, I've decided to support Sarah Palin, because I find all of this pig piling on Palin from so called conservatives on our side cowardly and disgusting.
I'm proud to support Sarah Palin and if you and your girlfriend Rodeo Mama don't like it then maybe you two should keep your condescending elitist remarks to yourselves.
Keep the personal comments coming - I understand.
Still waiting to hear who you think would be a better candidate for president. *crickets*
I don’t even watch the liberal news! There is something to what I am saying. I know you don’t like it, that is a given! What else are you supposed to say? All I can tell you is we are living in the end days because the whole country is going to hell in a handbasket, and it isn’t just because of what the liberals are doing either. The conservative movement has it’s own share of problems as the rise of Palins power proves!
The reason why it has been a side show is because Palin is very thin skinned, she isn’t a real Christian. Her politically correct feminist correct clap trap proves it. Palin gets power by getting into dog fights with people about things she exaggerates to prove political points. I wonder if the Republican people she took power from actually did anything wrong. She is not so virtuous. The question of House gate has never been settled. She seems like she is as corrupt as the next person, only she like to fight and knows how to get people all upset. Not much different from the gangster girls I see here in Southern California.
The conservative movement is going to hell because people like you would rather make stuff up about Palin- your completely unfounded accusation she plagiarized in college- and actually fall for MSM lies, whether you watch the news or read it on the internet.
You’ll be waiting a while. donna has the habit of slamming Palin, yet never offering an alternative. How wonderfully ‘progressive’ and ‘feminist’ or her (or it). Just like the ‘progressives’ and ‘feminists’ on the left- b!tch, b!tch, b!tch about things yet never offer a solution or alternative.
I have intuition, I do know certain things. You are just emotional about it because you really like Palin. It’s hard to see the truth when you invest so much in someone who on the surface seems so appealing. Palin is like Hillary Clinton, in more ways then you are willing to admit, only she is better looking and at least appears feminine.
Anybody with half a brain, who has read your comments on this thread, knows that your comments on this, or any other subject, are to be ignored. To call Gov. Palin “evil” makes you a laughingstock. I think from now on when calling somebody evil you should look in the mirror.
