Skip to comments.Kristol: Palin probably won't, shouldn't be nominee
Posted on 03/23/2011 9:47:13 AM PDT by EveningStar
Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol was among Sarah Palin's earliest Washington admirers, and helped bring her to the national stage, but he said this week that while he still admires her, he questions her choices and doesn't think she should be the Republican nominee for president.

I am to the point where I will support with sweat and money the most conservative candidate in the primary and whoever is the winner will have my vote over Obama.
He cannot be allowed a second term.
The old RINO hacks should just be ignored
Kristol is correct, of course.
I’ve decided that whenever I want to know what Bill Kristol has to say I will simply pull another few squares off the roll...
That’s because Bill *hearts* McRomneycare most.
Do you seriously think she can win?
Well the debates over. Bill Kristol tell us so.
Dear Bill Kristol:
Kiss my hairy arse.
I’m sick and (expletives deleted) tired of elitists like you thinking they get to call the shots. STFU, squirt up a rope, sod off, and take a long walk off a short dock. And take Karl Rove with you.
“Kristol: Palin probably won’t, shouldn’t be nominee”
Self: Kristol probably won’t, shouldn’t be conservative spokesman.
There, fixed it!
I’ll support her if she is the candidate but I hope she isn’t. I think she is star struck at this point. It’s all gone to her head and it shows. I want someone a little more grounded. Quitting the governorship didn’t help at all.
Kristol stands with Rove, Krauthammer, et al — give Obama another term and run Jeb in 2016.
1) Politico is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Washington Post.
2) Kristol is a long time RINO.
i.e. she hasn't sucked up to the DC "elites".
Does anyone have any idea when she is going to announce. I think everyone is just excited about her beginning her campaign. She will be a great President and once she announces and becomes the Republican candidate everyone will rally around. They pretty much did for McCain. He lost that election himself and not the party hacks.
If she: 1)enters the primary and 2) wins the nomination, then I’ll vote for her. Until then...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Yeah... His judgment is suspect.
My my...look who’s reared his elitist pubbie head again. Lil’ Billy Kristol.
It doesn’t matter. She has just as much right to run for the nomination as Bolton, Cain, Trump or anyone else. I haven’t seen Kristol and Krauthammer writing and commenting against them running, have you?
The attacks on Palin are ludicrous.
I don’t think she will run, but having some Romney hack roll out and push her decision either way is BS. We all know how irrelevant Bill is. Just read the mindless nitwittery that passes for Conservatism at the Weakly Substandard.
Wrong. Kristol is a pompous, condescending, ignorant RINO. I wish Fox News would flush him.
The pus brained PDS’ers should love this thread.
Have these gentlemen ever heard of the Supreme Court? If Obama wins in 2012, it won’t matter any more. We’ll have total socialism in this country.
“Do you seriously think she can win?”
Whether you think you can or you cant, either way you are right. - Henry Ford
That is a ignorant statement - “all gone to her head”
She made more since in these past few Q and A in NY and India than a lot of the potential candidates hemming and hawing on the MSM about what they would do
More drivel from the Left or Politico will be met with nothing but well deserved derision.
since = sense?
Perhaps Mr. Kristol should declare his candidacy. Then he would see if anyone else wants to vote for someone with whom Mr. Kristol agrees 100%.
Doesn’t all this oh-so-kind concern come down to, “I want to vote for someone more like me.”?
That is as resounding an endorsement as the fact that the entire Left goes insane every time they think of her.
It means Sarah is, indeed, "change."
They don't want change. They're in charge now. They won't be if there is change.
Because if she was personally bankrupt, she would have a lock on the nomination and election?
I’m convinced that she can and will win, even without your vote.
That is exactly why we need someone like her to turn this ship around.
All of the inside the beltway bubble people want to "educate" her so that she will think like them.
We need a major makeover in Washington not just the little trim around the edges that we are getting from the insiders.
The only thing I question is why she would want to do this thankless job. She will have to fight tooth and nail to make the basic changes that will take a generation to see results.
Well, that does it. If Kristol doesn’t like her, I’m getting my Palin2012 t-shirt asap.
I guess you would have to watch Fox to hear what this guy has to say. I don’t anymore. I get my news here!
If Obama wins 2012,there won’t be an election in 2016.
One example, she quit the governorship. Like it or not. She chose to pursue the golden ring. Abandoned the people who voted for her. You don’t think that will be used against her?
Like I said I’d still support her if she is the nominee.
And, PDS barf.
Backstabbing GOP DC Elitist PING!
Billy Kristol really should go back to doing comedy and lame movies and hosting awards programs.
Nina Easton, author of Gang of Five wrote about and praised Kristol. Kind of made up my mind about Kristol at that point. I don’t care what he has to say.
There is another reason to oppose Sarah e.g. her role in goading Obama into the Libya quagmire. This makes her damaged goods more than anything. Never forget! The GOP should only nominate a candidate who opposed intervention in that cesspool.
If she “probably won’t” be the nominee then why the continuous preoccupation with her? If she is unelectable, why all the concern about her running? I’m not understanding any of this...
A bit late. She's been running since November 2008.
“Do you seriously think she can win?”
Hell yes, in a landslide. And that goes double if the Stupid Party gets off their stupid butts and deploys fearless, aggressive poll watchers. People who will tackle and handcuff demonrat criminals and hold them for the police.
If she wanted to be taken seriously she needed to finish her term and then win Murkowski's Senate seat.
“Kristol is correct, of course.”
Kristol is an idiot.
