Posted on 06/07/2011 5:25:21 PM PDT by no dems

Bill O'Reilly just gave the results of the poll taken to which 60,000 viewers responded. 60% chose Bachmann; 40% chose Palin. Palin also lost to Obama 55% to 40%. What the hell is going on in the minds of American voters?

As Rush said today “If Palin runs and wins the nomination, she will be the one to beat in 2012! Don’t doubt me.”

YES!!! YOU GO RUSH!!!

I have not watched the egotistical boor Oreilly since he was so unprofessional when SP had to remind him that she was on a 4 second delay and to please not interrupt her.

If other people are like me and not watching the “loofah lover” no poll will be accurate because we non watcher political people do not know of the poll.

O’reilly got his fragile loofah ego in a wad, and has been dissing Sarah since she embarrassed him. Only a few months ago he was inviting himself up to Alaska, and Sarah had that look like “Keep away from me pervert”.

There is body language as who you can trust and who you cannot,Oreilly is not trustworthy.

if nothing else, Palin’s voice runs thin very quickly.
I like Sarah and sat 10 feet from her, during a speaking engagement last year.
It’s important to learn which traits in a candidate turn off the swing votes in America.
This isn’t about filling out a conservative checklist, it’s about political reality.
Michele has a great shot at VP.

Pizza boy? Come on dude; no sense getting nasty about a man who is a successful conservative. But, then, from your screen name, you're probably from Florida or Louisiana; no surprise that you are prejudiced against "uppity niggras".

Bachmann is vastly superior to the gaffe-prone, lightweight Palin. Bachmann is a serious, accomplished person whose appeal grows the longer one scrutinizes her. Palin is just the opposite: The longer she’s scrutinized the more temperamental and unserious she looks.

When Palin had the chance to show what she’s made of by exhibiting some courage against her opponents and fulfilling her oath to the Alaskan people, she cut and ran, choosing to rake in some cash in the lower forty-eight instead.

Now she’s riding around the countryside on a ridiculous bus with a silly look-at-me grin on her face. YUCK.

I wasn't sure about Palin, but the longer thing go the more I like her. In my mind Bachmann made a poor choice getting involved with Ed Rollins which IMO shows very poor judgment. Romney backing GW and Romneycare took him out of the running IMO.

No, that is NOT what he was implying. As Rush has stated numerous times the “conventional wisdom” is that Obama is The One to beat and how difficult it will be to defeat Him. He did not say Obama would be the one to beat, implying that Obama would be untouchable, as many on the Left believe. He said Palin would be the one to beat. Why would Rush want the Republican nominee “beat”? Are you on the Left and stating any Republican will be the one to beat? Just asking!

Leaving out the big word, “if”, and this was not long after he said he was shocked to find that women would never support her. Just breezed right by that comment didn’t you. If she wins the nomination, whoever wins the nomination, all the same.

I didn’t think I needed to spell out the IF part. But here you go I F IF. I heard him say some conservative women would never vote for her and he said he couldn’t figure out why, and the he snidely said that yes he could explain it. Do you need that explained to you too? Ask your wife, or check your own nads, all the same.

All this completely unscientific poll proves is that 36,000 O’Reilly viewers say they prefer Bachmann to Palin; while 24,000 say the opposite.

It would have been a lot more scientific if the results were reversed.

I believe that is a MSM generated poll. They HATE Sarah Palin. I believe she can be elected. She’s certainly smarter than BO and her instincts are sharper. Her positions on the issues are right. I agree with her on everything. The people love her. She could win this. I will NOT vote Romney. WILL NOT.

I meant no disrespect for Cain, but some of his supporters make me sick with their dumbass PDS.

As for my screen name, nope, my real last name is Gates. My old boss gave me that the nickname because when I worked a case, I sunk my teeth in and never gave up.

I live in the mountains on the west coast and other than the 8 that I personally know of, blacks don’t live in my county. We do have a good many wetbacks that you can have.

Now about the pizza boy thing. I must assume you’re black because your so sensitive. Here, we call the guy that delivers the pizza the “pizza boy”. I wasn’t trying to use a code word to say the word nigger... I am not a bashful man.

Take your race card sh-t and stuff it where the sun doesn’t shine, dude. It doesn’t work on me... I don’t have any guilt or hate for the skin color.

One last thing.... I’m not a “dude”.

"if nothing else, Palin’s voice runs thin very quickly.

Yes, there are some shallow thinkers (or non-thinkers) who won't listen INITIALLY to the substance of what a person is saying, they are "turned off" by that person's voice.  And I agree that Palin has a challenge with getting that group to actually listen to what she's saying.
 
However, if Palin gets the nomination and the voters are looking at her vs Obama on the ballot, do you really think swing voters will vote for Obama just because of Palin's voice?  IOW, they like her positions on most of the issues (compared to those of Obama), but they will vote for Obama anyway just because they like the way his voice sounds compared to hers? 
 
I can see it in the primaries when deciding whether to vote for one of the GOP candidates, but are they really that shallow to do so at the general ballot after months of Palin ads and performances in debates?

I can't get my 13 yr old granddaughter to read a classic ... I just want her to read "Little Women," "Jane Eyre," and "Pride and Prejudice" this summer.

Some random advice...

Forget Little Women! Some of us HATED it!

Try youtube, the movie version of Jane Eyre may be available, Joan Fontaine and Laurence Olivier; there should also be at least one Pride and Prejudice there.

Abridged versions in the library.

Editions with illustrations are out there too.

Read it to her.

Ask her to read it to you.

Read it together in some way and discuss things at the end of each chapter.

Cliff's Notes has a website with discussions and study guides of these books, and there's also sparknotes.com.

The books themselves are available online if your granddaughter prefers the computer to the printed page.

Most of all, don't just get her to read, read with her; where she goes in a classic tale, go along with her!

Yes, I think some people will vote against Palin because of her voice and diction.

You have to have personality to win the White House in the modern TV era. But Palin’s personality is a bit quirky for a number of people. Add in the fact she doesn’t have a boatload of accomplishments and political experience to offset that, her personality will be the issue with a segment of voters.

This is one of the reasons I’m not on the Palin bandwagon. Obama’s only strength is his celebrity with certain segments of the population. Palin has that same strength. I don’t really want to match up against Obama on that particular playing field, i.e. strength v. strength in a “Twitter/Facebook” type campaign. I’d rather have a guy like Paul Ryan who would pull Obama over to the policy debate playing field, where I think Obama loses.

IMO Mrs. Bachmann stepped out of her depth when she left state government.

In 5 years 17, 22 and 7 pieces of legislation sponsored with none becoming law
No significant committee assignments
No leadership position in the GOP
No coalition created to champion the issues she claims to care about

She has however, been able to bring home the earmark bacon for her district. Not sure if that is a plus...

A "Bill O'Rumpwad Poll"? Tell me you're kidding. This has all the gravitas of a Ronald McDonald Poll. Consider the mouth-breathing snot eaters who watch Bill O'Rancid for a minute.

That's why we have campaigns. Two declared candidates for president (including the sitting president!) poll better than a private citizen who has not announced her candidacy yet... this surprises you?

So what? Let's see how Bachmann and O'Bongo poll against Palin after Sarah has been actively campaigning for six months. Better still, let's see who "polls" better in November of 2012.

Truth be told, it's the only poll that counts for anything anyway.

First, I’m not a “Palinistas”, whatever that is. I am a Palin supporter and while she has not formally announced, I intend to work on the premise that she will... in her time.

As for bashing other conservatives, I don’t disagree with you in principal, but don’t think for a second that I am going to just sit, shut up and ignore the PDS’ers as the bash my candidate, announced or not.
