Quote Of The Week

We're not going to sit down and shut up.

Sarah Palin at Saturday's Tea Party protest.

Sarah is starting to look a little more Presidential IMHO.

Presidential?

Maybe.

She does give the kind of pep talk freedom-loving Americans need right now.

I hope that the April 15 Tea Party in DC shuts down the whole damn town!

Except that now that she's campaigned on McCain's behalf, she's taking some heat from some angry conservatives on the right.

Can't make all the conservatives happy all of the time....

I think there is a huge distinction between looking and behaving presidential. I have not seen much from Palin in the way of executive management that encourages me to trust her as our president. I wish it were otherwise; I wish I had confidence that she was more than simply speaking the words we want to hear.

It is interesting. Palin does have magnetism and can get a crowd energized. My problem with Palin is the fact that she is so polarized in the public. I do not see her running as a very good idea.

I am really hoping we aren't facing an election where they try to put up a candidate "First" again and campaign on fluff rather than substance.

Ticker said...

Palin is a good cheerleader but not much when it comes to playing quarterback. She will do better on the sidelines cheering on a real leader than trying to usurp the position for herself.

Of all the "politicians" that seem to be in the running for 2012, I like Palin's stand on issues more than most of the others. I do agree with Wordsmith. Campaigning for McCain taints her a little bit. I, too, am concerned about her "executive abilities."

Still, it's going to be hard finding someone that isn't trying to appeal to the center, who is electable, and who isn't simply a tax and spend RINO.

I agree with AOW: Maybe.

The left will of course try to demonize her, but then again, they've done all of the damage they possible could by now...

Maybe...

All, I am not sure I want to see Palin run. For one I don't think she would win because she is so damaged by the negative media coverage. Second, I am not absolutely convinced she is the most qualified.

I like the quote and I think she is acting more respectable lately. She has had a habit in the past to act a little like a dingbat

AOW, of course if a right wing group shuts down DC it's terrorism instead of the civil disobedience the left practices

Wordsmith, I found that whole bit interesting. While I am not a huge fan of McCain, she does get points for loyalty. That's not a common trait in DC

Mustang, it is unlikely we will elect a President who can actually do the job anymore. We are now in the American Idol generation

Leslie and Ticker, I have thought she does more for the conservative movement by being the cheerleader. This is not to diminish the role. We need someone like Palin stirring up the conservatives.

TC, there are some possibilities out there. I think the nominee is either Romney or someone we don't see coming. While I am not a hardcore supporter of Romney, I think he is the only obvious one right now that has a decent chance at the nomination, unless someone surprising steps up.

Brooke, agreed. I think her image can only go up from here.

That's fine for Sara, but what will it take for average American to realize that Obama and his fiends are pushing America closer and closer to a socialist hell, with every government program they shove down America’s throat? What will it take for Americans to get off their behinds and fight for this country? For the no-believers we have compiled a list of evidence of Obama’s push for socialism here, http://sosssn.blogspot.com/

Presses, I think people are getting there

MK said...

Amen to that. If nothing else she's rallying people against the liberal fascist.

Chuck said...

MK, agreed

Ticker said...

If the religious far right had not thrown Romney under the bus and then told their congregations to stay home and not vote for McCain because "he is not conservative enough" we would not have had this idiot in the WH. Romney would have torn him a new one in debates, not tried to play the nice guy as did McCain. Romney would have carried enough independents such as I to have won. Unfortunately the far right attempted to be the Kingmaker and failed. AS I wrote in a blog long before the elections, the far right would be the cause of Obama getting elected and consequences would be hell. I don't mind saying, I TOLD YOU SO!.

Chuck said...

Ticker, while Romney isn't necessarily my first choice, I agree with you. One huge difference he would have made was his business experience. McCain fell horribly flat on this, Romney would have presented a much better plan for the fiscal crisis.
