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 can articulate the reasons for her perceived superiority, but it’s not the reasons they will acknowledge, like being a good dog fighter. People like that aren’t true conservatives, it is just a ticket to success for them. If they were real conservatives they would care about ethics. And when I say people, I mean Palin. I am not blaming those who have fallen for her sch-tick, just trying to wake them up.
Good work defending your cult hero. How sad! Palin enjoys it that she can get such loyalty. If she was a real christian, she wouldn’t enjoy it at all and set you straight to worship who you really are supposed to. Don’t call me evil for pointing out some basic Christian truths. Don’t count on Palin to do that, she is too busy playing manipulative tactics. Our country is going down fast!
And you haven't even begun to see emotional. Emotions are wasteful on people like you who can't even get basic facts straight. I pity you.
Where is your proof of ethics issues? Just like your baseless charge of plagiarism in college, if you don't have facts to back it up, shut it. You should know better than to make stuff up. Nobody cares about your 'intuition'.
First of all, I’m neither Pro or Anti Palin, so take your “cult hero” crap and shove it. What I am against is bitter old nags like you spewing garbage, which it seems all you are capable of.
I certainly hope you don’t consider yourself a christian because there is nothing you have said that even resembles being a christian. I think the only person you worship is yourself and your own bitterness.
You do realize the plagiarism charge has been debunked. Newt, of whom she was accused of plagiarizing from, even said it wasn’t plagiarism. They both had used quotes from Reagan and had similar comments, but it wasn’t plagiarism, just typical conservative comments.
The media has been pushing that line to the weak minded to try to get it to stick, but it is untrue. Don’t fall for the media and left’s little games. You are smarter than that, aren’t you?
So who is a 'true' conservative to you? Please describe and give us an example.
My favorite part of that Huffington Post hit-piece is where the writer accuses of Palin plagiarizing Gingrich for speaking a sentence after stating "What Newt wrote . . . ." So the only questions that remain are 1. did you even bother to read the article, or 2. do you believe everything you read at the Huffington Post (or do not understand the word, "plagiarism")?
Support who you will. I myself am not fond of her, that’s that, said and done.
Now, what makes you think you have the authority to tell anyone here, let alone long-time FReepers to keep anything to themselves? For your edification, you have none.
Finally, I’m a married man, and I don’t appreciate your girlfriend remarks. That’s not befitting a FReeper.
I honestly don’t know that I can agree with you there. Other than that she strikes me as an opportunist, I can’t say that I’ve seen anything to indicate that she’s been found to be ethically lacking.
The Letterman thing is a perfect example. I think everyone knows whether they’ll admit it or not, that her use of the word “rape” was pure hyperbole in response to a poor joke. But it was just that, it was hyperbole. It wasn’t slander, it wasn’t fabricated, or anything that I’d consider unethical. It was pure hyperbole, and she was opportunist enough to seize it for effect.
Same for Bristol. You’ll never convince me that her sudden conversion to abstinence wasn’t a ploy to make mama look good. I wouldn’t call it unethical. Some teenager, not seeing through the obvious might even listen to her and some good may come of it. What it is though, is political expediency.
What puts me off about Palin is that to be honest, I just don’t think she’s that bright. She’s certainly not the caliber that we want to lead our country.
Funny, that is how I feel about just about everyone in Washington, New York, the White House, Congress and both parties' leadership. Based on the current condition of the US economy and the actions taken by our "leaders" to date, it would appear that my concerns are valid.
Its time for real change from the outside. No more retreads who simply offer less aggressive liberal "solutions" or think it proper to compromise ones' values for the sake of bipartisanship.
Whether its Palin or not, the next generation of leaders needs to focus on drastically reducing government. We cannot sustain this massive growth of bureaucracy and irresponsible spending. Nor can we tolerate the loss of freedom that comes with bigger more intrusive government.
An adult having sex with a 14 year old is defined as rape in America. The fact that you disagree with this definition doesn't change the definition.
I am a liberal?
You are a very silly person. And I’m certain a kook in your 60’s in real life.
I’m a pro-life libertarian. No apologies.
Her grandstanding this Letterman thing is turning people off big time out here in the real world. I think she needs to shut up about it, already.
Honestly. It’s hurting her cause.
When someone who doesn’t know me calls me a liberal, I get aaaalll shakey! Oh noes!!!!
Seeing as how I made my political bones going door-to-door for Reagan during his first campaign, I laugh. (And it paid off—my precinct went 68% for him—and only 21% for McCain and Palin in the last election. That’s what’s making these people howl.)
Your opinions are mostly liberal.
Your FR home page reeks of liberal, who hid from life in schools, through several childhoods.
I applaud your pro-life proclamation.
I put myself through all that schooling working, everything from roofer to retail to pharmaceutical salesman. And as I mentioned elsewhere, I cut my political teeth going door to door for Reagan.
You listen to Limbaugh too much. You need to get out.
Well, there's one point where we have something in common, although I started with Goldwater.
"You listen to Limbaugh too much"
I wish that I could listen more often, I find him entertaining. (and there's one more liberal bullet through your 'libertarian' heart)
"You need to get out."
I agree! The more I get outside, the better I feel.
Goldwater! I knew you were one of these over-60’s that make this place cranky and creaky!
I dont think she is well informed or very smart. (Not very smart does not mean stupid.) *****
ENOUGH of your liberal talking points here. Yeah the MOST popular Gov in America is not very smart. Only a crackpot will believe those lies not being very smart themselves!!

Rush Limbaugh defended Palin and heralded her as the most prominent and articulate voice for conservatism.
AS Michael Reagan said re convention night:
Wednesday night I watched the Republican National Convention on television and there, before my very eyes, I saw my Dad reborn; only this time hes a she.
In one blockbuster of a speech, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin resurrected my Dads indomitable spirit
Audio: Palin: screw political correctness, Obama policies designed to control the people
Hoeven, who proudly displays photos of the two governors together on his Facebook page, has spoken glowingly of his Alaskan colleague:
She is smart, articulate. She has a very thoughtful approach. She thinks things through and determines how shes going to deal with an issue, and then she deals with it very straightforwardly, Hoeven said. She hunts. She fishes. She knows energy issues. Shes got a son in the military. She brings a very broad perspective that both men and women will relate to.
Laura Ingraham: Sarah Palin is the Only Republican with Star Power http://www.conservatives4palin.com/2009/05/laura-ingraham-sarah-palin-is-only.html
What I was talking about had nothing to do with the ethics charges in Alaska, I am sure much of that is being driven by political opponents since so many have been thrown out there, I wasn’t referring to it either, just my observation that Palin doesn’t seem to understand that the ends don’t justify the means. Don’t get so upset, I am just stating what amounts to an opinion.
By the way if Sarah Palin doesn't win the GOP primary and the person you support does win, I will gladly vote for him or her because I believe the Commie and Chief Barack Hussein Obama has to go in 2012 before he can do any more damage.
Even though I prefer Palin, I like some of the other potential candidates like Jindal and Sanford and I would be proud to have them as my President also.
