Posted on 11/13/2010 12:38:19 PM PST by Retired Intelligence Officer
I was appalled at Liz Trotta and 3 other conservative guest panelist (that I couldn't name) on this afternoons Fox newswatch hosted by Jon Scott all agreed that Palins new reality show, Sarah Palin's Alaska on the Discovery Channel was very unpresidential and it would sink her any chances for the White House.
The topic was that liberal advocacy groups were asking for the Discovery Channel to pull the plug on it. The consevative commentator Liz Trotta then said that she agreed with Karl Rove that this was a bad move for Palin. Trotta then goes on to take a pop shot at Palin saying "everytime this woman opens her mouth that her numbers go down". She then said "the more she speaks that she makes people simply not like her". Jon Scott did not ask Trotta why this was just like yesterday when Megyn Kelly didn't ask Meghan McCain why she thought Palin would be best as a reality star.
My question is why is Fox news who hired Sarah Palin allowing conservative guest freely without explanation to back up their facts to trash her and her message in a public forum? Why are they allowing people to tarnish her reputation as well as her new TV program which they advertize during commercial time? Something smells
Let me guess, the media has ruined her image among independents. HERES A NEWS FLASH..the media will do that to ANY candidate we select.
DING DING DING!!!! We have a winner!!!!
They loved McCain until the race heated up and it was open season on him. The looks on his face were a classic as his “DC beltway media buddies” turned on him and ripped him a new one. At then end, he looked like a bumbling old codger.
Huckster....they’ll call him a bible thumpin hillbilly
Mitten.....a cold, flimsy, money-grubbing technocrat who is a (gasp) Mormon.
Actually, they can give a more unbiased opinion if they don't watch it.
The drama talk is ridiculous and over the top. I don’t understand this compassion for her suffering when she wasn’t convicted of anything. Sure she got smeared and sued, so what. Don’t run when the heat is on.
The media will push Romney and Huckabee for all it’s worth, kiss their behind, and Romney and Huckabee will think they are adored by the press, the second either one of them wins, just watch..with Romney, he will be called a hypocrite for being the one that created RomneyCare, “Hey Romney, isn’t that the same as Obamacare, what’s the difference?” with Huckabee, it will be “You let out a man who went on to murder 4 cops in cold blood.” The media are full of leftists, does anyone here really think they give a flying F about the Republican party
You certainly spend a lot of time putting her down here on FR. Since you signed up in 2009 I assume you are one of Soros’ paid anti-Palin shills.
Basically yes....that's what she was looking at if she stayed in office. All family resources would have been drained. I know you don't want to hear that....
No, just conservatives that care about our Constitutional Republic.
You can continue to support leftists, liberals, RINO's and dems.
Oh, and your President.
We'll overcome all of that, kid.
Because she’s not ready for the big time, son.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.False. A lie.Border line ignorant.
She ran Alaska, a military force, and directly negotiated foreign porting in Alaska with nations like Japan, Canada, Russia, South Korea and China.She even laid out a treaty with Canada, successfully.BTW, Sarah Palin is highly liked in Japan and China.
Take a look at the size of Alaska. Is almost 1/3 the size of the United States.Palin was Governor of a small nation, not a little state like Rhode Island or the state of Illinois that sponsored the current leftist edition occupying the White House.Alaska is huge, has a huge coastline, a tremedous variety of kinds of people, ,and huge natural resources, is the first line of defence against Western enemies. She did a great job.
Read the facts about Palin’s record as Governor.
You bet this lady is ready, son. And the people are ready to elect her.
And she will be one of the best presidents this nation has ever had.
I have to laugh at you “she’s not ready” people. She is much more ready than George W. Bush was.Dubyah had daddy holding his hand for half his life. Palin is self made, and that counts big time.Obama is not self made, he had the affirmative action hand up, that sure prepared him for office. BUahahahahahahahahahaa!
People who diss Palin had better start garnering the facts about her. One thing she is not is “unprepared”. You will have to hang your hat on another peg, maybe like they will have to take away the nuke codes from her if she has PMS, or some other similar foolish notion as the one YOU have at present.
In some ways, Palin is like the old progressive Democrat William jennings Bryan. The Democratic party of his time was a coalition of urban machines and southern and midwestern farmers, with the urban machine bankrolled by bankers. He had the support of the farmers and the people in the small towns. But in 1912, the Progressives put ip Woodrow Wilson as their candidate.Bryan helped throw the election to Wilson and was named secretary of state. He lasted until 1915, although he was largely circumvented by Wilson, who used his trained dog, House, as his messenger, and resigned when it seemed that the US would go to war after the Lusitania was sunk by a German U-Boot. Thereafter he was marginalized.
Yes, I was beginning to wonder about him too. Lots of bashing going on.
You can’t disagree that she has been through hell..Forget about the governorship for a moment, from the second she was announced as McCain’s running mate the most nasty, disgusting, outrageous things have been said about her. Even now, check out those liberal nasty blogs, the ones that hope Trig dies, the ones that want Sarah assassinated. She needs 24/7 protection from these loons. I’d call that suffering. Physical suffering, of course not. She has not been physically harmed(Don’t think they haven’t tried, death threats, etc) but she has been emotionally harmed, everyday. If it was just as simple as “Dealing with it” then bullies would have no power now would they
Love her too, but you are spot on....my only criticism of her since '08.
psst, hey folks...listen up. Can you hear it??? It’s called free publicity and media buzz. And she’s getting paid for it too!!!! The more people squawk, the more people’s interest is piqued.
What you hear from from the LSM and beltway boys is jelousy.
She’s not playing this for the elites, she’s playing this for the masses.
And if she does run (either in 12 or in the future), SHE will be in charge of the message. NOT McCAIN, NOT Schmitt, NOT Rove, and certainly NOT Pissy Matthews!!!
If she is so unpresidential they should quit talking and worrying about her. It’s pretty funny how infatuated the media seems to be with her every move. They seem to sense something...
She can’t sneeze without the media talking about it. They are obsessed with her, because they know what most of us know, that if she went against Obama she would win
Yes, but that's a positive, not a negative. Rather than being stuck in Alaska getting harassed by liberals, she moved to the national stage and has driven both the political debate and the Republican Party.
and she is politically radioactive now.
To who, liberals? Look, she doesn't need nor does she care about what these people think. She has the conservative base locked up all she has to do is convince the squishes. Her daughter being on DWTS, Sarah being on Oprah and now her show, along with her 2 book tours, have helped her tremendously with independents.
But shes certainly rich and in the limelight.
Of course she cashed in. Both to prepare for a possible run at the Presidency and to secure her family's future. Don't be a hater! But Sarah has never been a wealthy person nor does she come from a wealthy background. In fact she resigned from a job that paid six figures (Alaska Oil & Gas Commission) because of the corruption. What does that tell you?
These things are not debatable. Her negatives from independents arent going to change and shes very unlikely to win. I think its very unlikely to turn around either.
I agree she has some work to do with independents and so-called moderates. But independents are followers, bandwagon types. Once they see conservatives rally for Sarah, most of them will join the movement.
Do I dislike her? Not at ALL. Do I think shes made bad and potientially fatal politcal moves, yep!
What bad moves has she made? Anything from when she was McCain's running mate doesn't count.
The attacks on the underaged kids are nasty indeed.
The rest of the stuff, get me a violin.
You are absolutely right. Posters here have short memories. Liz Trotta was all over Clinton like white on rice, and has been on "this side of the fence," VERY vocally, many times.
It's going to be a looong two years.
