Heard on MSNBC tonight (Chris Matthews show) that the GOP is getting fed up with Palin's posturing and beginning to take seriously the hurt she can do to their party. "Stopping Palin" seems to be a rallying cry. I never thought I would admit to agreeing with Karl Rove on ANYTHING, but his comment that Palin lacks the "gravitas" to be president says what many believe.
I also liked this commentary by Ed Rollins of CNN. She sure isn't Ronald Reagan!
That is because it is usually backed up with facts. Republicans on the other hand, rewrite anything to go along with their lies, in order to misinform a retarded base. They even thought the Bible was too liberal...so what did they do? Rewrite it. The dictionary...same thing. Encyclopedia same thing. Rewrite the story to it goes along with your lies. Classic.
That is a hoot. Palin a populist for the wealthy, does not even warrant bothering to refute......what a reach. Palin is Palin, the jeolousy of her knows no bounds, but of course that does not mean she should run for President, within the Republican party or a third party, and I suspect she is aware of that herself. She is not a dunce, despite quite astute opinions to the contrary.
Dan Quayle.......Biden (does he have a first name ) same difference, almost, excepting Biden is an elected foil for Obama, while Quayle was ....... dunno, a dunce that almost passed muster, God Save the Queen, or something like that.
Actually, I spell potato, potatoe, many times, comes from reading English in its many variations and from many eras, that attack on qualing Quayle had about as much substance as a can of Campbells chicken noodle these days.
I definitely cannot listen to her for more than several seconds. I have often said that she can not be President as I can not stand listening to her voice for very long. But then, I equally can not stand listening to Obamas voice anymore, much less looking at him spout and crawfish and stumble even with his teleprompter. I would rather a screech than someone who can not talk except in anger without a teleprompter.
I would be interested to find out how this civil war between the Jacksonians and the Blue Bloods will turn out. I think if the Dems are healthy they would address their own intra-party conflicts but I don't think they are up to it. Anyway, I hope so. I don't want Obama back for another four years.
Forget about the Democratic Party for a minute. It is up for grabs and there are quite a few "trials" for Obama to get through between now and 2012 to determine if he's a contender. Right now his party is not very happy with him capitulating on the Bush Tax Cuts...
But what about the GOP? Do you believe that if Sarah Palin buckles down and learns her shit (as some suggest she should do if she's serious about a run) she could pull it off? Or do you think what you see is what there is? In which case, the buzz seems to be that the GOP has had just about enough and needs to pull the plug on Miss Energizer Playboy Bunny?
Better qualities than most Dems who choose to post such tripe in a pathetic effort to denigrate her. About as useful an attempt as those sexist photos of Pelosi with her face pinned on a sexy body most definitely not her own, and that was by Dems who love her so very much!!
I do not think Palin is necessarily the right presidential candidate, but I do think the desperation of libs in regard to her is quite informative.
The GOP is already fissuring: the GOP establishment ("bluebloods") vs the Jacksonians (Tea Partiers).
Unless we have a double-dip recession, Obama will win 2012. It will be a bit interesting to see how the GOP handles the civil war. My guess is that they will just pay Palin to shut up, and get Hannity et al to instruct their followers of the new marching orders.
I speak for myself, just like you speak for yourself. I know you like indulging in generalizations and stereotypes - you've demonstrated that a lot here in the forums - but just like a certain body part, everyone just has their own opinion.
What's with the Biden bashing all of a sudden? Has he done something egregious as Veep that I don't know about? In checking into his background and credentials, I see he has actually a rather distinguished record of service to our country in the Senate, serving on committees, and now as the VP. He is also a lawyer -- which, apparently, is considered in some circles as unnecessary and ridiculous training of the mind.
Texasbeta?? Yuk, there sure are lots of nasty, liberal sickos out there.
As for the OP: This is just wishful thinking of liberals. Sarah Palin is not going anywhere. Average Americans like her and she scares the dickens out of liberals and the GOP elites.
The GOP establishment can't stand Sarah; they're the ones who are going to lose. Carl Rove and the other goons don't decide who gets to run for President. Anyone who wants to run can run and it's up to the American people who we will vote for.
Keep on attacking, you liberals and GOP elites. It only embolden The Tea Party and average Americans who love Sarah even more.
