Skip to comments.Chris Wallace After Palin Interview: First Time I Ever Thought ‘This Women Is A Serious Candidate’
Posted on 06/05/2011 4:04:01 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
After interviewing Sarah Palin, Chris Wallace talked about her with his panel of guests and revealed that he was very impressed with her appearance. Unlike previous times when he interviewed her, Wallace noticed this wasnt just you betcha she was pretty sharp on the issues.
Wallace was eager to see if anyone else agreed with his review of Palins interview:
I thought she was a boffo performance today. It was the first time that I ever saw her and thought this woman is a serious if she decides to run candidate for President. And a serious possibility to be President.
Besides a somewhat strange historical discussion of Paul Revere, Palin spoke confidently on issues ranging from the debt ceiling and foreign affairs, to her unequivocal support for Congressman Paul Ryans budget proposal. With Wallace now convinced that Palin can be a serious candidate, if she wants to be, it will be interesting to see whether other skeptics might be swayed now or if Palin still needs more detailed policy talks, and less Paul Revere, moving forward.
Watch the clip below from Fox:

What did the other panelists have to say?
I say Chris Wallace’s opinion counts for very little.
Bump to you dd and a Sarah ping to onyx.
Wallace is a marxist, treasonist drip. Who the hell cares what his opinion is. I like the “you betchas”. They beat our current “you’ll do as I say” BS we’re putting up with!
She performed great and sounded like a candidate to me.
They’re playing checkers; she’s playing chess.
And so you would prefer he trashed her?
“And so you would prefer he trashed her?”
No, although that is what he usually does. She’s not a Washington insider so that makes her unqualified in his mind.
I’m sick of these traitors.
Sarah did very well today!
Born February 11, 1964 in Sandpoint, ID (Meets the Jus Soli Requirement)
Charles R Heath, born in ID
Sarah Sheeran, born in WI
Both parents were US Citizens at the time of her birth (Meets the Jus Sanguinis Requirement)
Sarah Palin is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN
Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama ISN'T!
The LSM, the left and the Palin haters on the right will have to be committed when she does run and beat the arrogant pos that currently resides at 1600 Pennsylvania in a landslide like you have never seen
“I stand amazed at how many stupid people there are in this nation”. 50% of Americans are below average.
And the other half are conservatives.
Sure you don’t have Chris Wallace (not a treasonous marxist drip) with Chris Matthews (well attested treasonous marxist drip)?
Well, the one blond bi@tch said “Sarah is going to have to talk more on policies”.
She obviously doesn’t follow Sarah. In that video, the blond was the only one who spoke, besides Wallace.
Yes but I’m glad to see anyone say good things. Let him take her seriously. It’s better than what’s been said. I saw part of it. She looked relaxed, and she looked great and sounded great. And easily Presidential. :)
I think it would be wise to wait until she decides to run. People are getting way to carried away with Mrs. Palin when, up to this day, she hasn’t decided to be a candidate. She seems to be a very nice lady.
I’m not crazy about the “you betchas” but it’s because I’ve never lived where it was a speech pattern. They don’t come into play about whether or not I would vote for her. They are certainly not as annoying as the Obama whistle or some other speech patterns I can think of.
I’m much more concerned about the candidates beliefs, political views and policies, etc.
“What did the other panelists have to say?”
Well CNN went to play a clip of Palin and the clip didn’t work.
There is another thread running with an article about the panelists bashing Palin, including Billy Kristol. It was not a nice discussion.
Chris Wallace being a true go getter in the MSM finally takes the bull by the tail and faces the situation like a man.
That may be what he told you, but I seriously doubt that was the real reason, it was just a simple answer to cover his real feelings.
She also said Palin feels compelled to speak to every issue, then she said she should shut up and talk more on issues. Color me ?????
Ba-da-BOOM! Nice one!
“I know a guy who is a college graduate, retired from the banking industry and “seemingly” intelligent. He voted for Obama because he didn’t like Sarah’s “you betcha”. What a friggin’ meat head.”
What’s remarkable about arguments from the left is, you take the most so-called intelligent ones and you take the most flaming stupid ones, and they are pretty much the same.
I wish the pres_ent could be told the same with true sincerity for a change. (outside of the golf course)
Note: To all those suffering from PDS, please do not read the following comments, as they may cause your head to explode.
In one question, Wallace said, “What would a President Palin do under those circumstances?”
She didn’t argue with the “President Palin” title, she just answered the question.
Anyone who thinks she’s not running is in for a rude awakening.
“50% of Americans are below average.”
Hey... I copyrighted that phrase 30 years ago.
Then why is he on TV all the time, giving his opinion?
It would seem to me that this is the beginning of a string of talking heads who suddenly 'see' that Palin is a good candidate.
It's all about the money (their popularity rating).
Have you seen him golf?
Yogi Berra would be proud.
On a side note, there seems to be a tendency among some Freepers to condemn anyone who might be convinced to agree with us on anything. Since we were here first, anyone who disagreed with us in the past in therefore ineligible to be an ally in the future. If this had been the standard in years past, "real" Conservatives would have rejected that old Hollywood union organizer, Ronald Reagan.
So true. Chris Wallace may lean left, but he has always seemed like an honest and fair man, unlike his dad. Bob
I feel a purging of historic proportion is in order.
Sarah hasn’t changed.
Where was he in 2008?
Thanks 2ndDivisionVet, additional:
Counts a lot for me. Chris has excellent instincts.
Of course is you’re Big Media, the discussion about Palin will concern trying to make her historically correct statement about Paul Revere warning the British into the BIG ISSUE!!! ...not the economy, jobs, education, energy, or foreign affairs. That they will ignore as much as possible.
Nhris Wallace has woken up. Others will follow. But me thing is sure. Wallace and others in the LSM still think they can make or break any candidate.
With Sarah Palin, they are dead wrong. She doesn’t need them at all.She can win without the LSM behind her.Her popularity has increased despite ALL the LSM could do to her.
Yes, Sarah made a fine appearance in Wallace’s interview. But the real realization is simple.Wallace has realized that the LSM cannot stop her, if they have not after all they have done to kill her politically.
One additional thing I meant to add,Sarah Palin is not only sharp on the isses. She has driven the issues from her Facebook Page for more than two years. The Health Care debate is one example. Her initiatives with nomenclatures , now in standard use, such as “death panels”, reflects this fact.
Its nice that Wallace has awoken to the Sarah Palin who we conservatives all know so very much more comprehensively than Wallace does.In fact most in the media simply have been blind to her role in actually shaping the national debate on issues from her Facebook Page, against an administration and Lame Stream media that has billions to spend in convincing the US public on Obama’s initiatives. Its David vs Goliath, and Sarah has won that type of battle repeatedly over the last two years with comparatively miniscule resources, compared to her detractors.Imagine what would be happening if she had an even playing field.I have no hesitation in saying that America has evolved its own version of Britain’s Margaret Thatcher or Israel’s Golda Meyer.
Yes,Sarah Palin is not only sharp on the issues. She has created many of them.
So I do not buy the context of Wallace’s conclusion that *finally*she has become sharp on the issues. She always has been and has created many in the sphere of national debate. That puts her head and shoulders above anyone else running for the office in 2012. She arrived a long time ago, and people like Wallace just did not know it. Despite their self assumed sophistication, the LSM is way behind the learning curve on Sarah Palin, dumber than dirt.If anything Wallace has the courage to face that fact. I am not so sure others will but lets see. Sarah can have a very powerful transformative effect, a necessary quality for a President of the United States.
Sarah has their heads spinning, they have no clue!
“Actually that assumes a Normal distribution centered on 100.” You are correct if you consider only IQ. The average IQ in this country is just over 100, or so it’s said.
However “average” is close enough for government work...
