Barbara Bush and Karl Rove are the ones who need to "stay home" not Palin.
I've made it no secret that I support and dare I say am a fan of Sarah Palin. I like Palin for a very simple reason, the woman is REAL. She isn't a typical garden variety fake, appeasing politician who doesn't stand for anything other then saying anything to get a elected. It's really no wonder why she has such strong roots within the tea party movement. I get asked all the time be dim witted liberals and even so called conservatives whether I would really support Palin if she decides to run for the nomination, my answer has always been yes. That answer has always taken Palin critics and haters by surprise to this day. I would usually ask a question of my own as a follow up to my answer. I ask them "can they name any factual reasons based on her job performance as a mayor and governor that would warrant me not supporting her and disqualifying her to be considered electable". None have yet to answer that question. All they could say is either" come one" or "are you serious"? Then I would ask the question again, and again they won't or can't give me the answer. I'm bringing this up now, because I saw this evening on the ABC Nightly News their transparent hit piece on Palin trying as usual to disguise their attack as journalism, They played a clip of their new darling and new useful idiot former first lady Barbara Bush in an interview on CNN in which Barb said that Palin should "stay in Alaska".
To top that all off, the neo con GOP hack Karl Rove claimed that "he doubts whether Palin has a thick enough skin to become President". I took the hot coals to Karl's ass a month ago. It looks like I'm going to have to do it again. There are many people who thought that George W Bush wasn't suitable to be president, yet, he turned out to be a two term president. The difference with Bush as compared to Palin is that W was in the good graces of the GOP establishment. Obviously Sarah is playing by her own rules that doesn't sit well with the ruling class elites within the GOP, and she is ruffling the feathers of the political pundits who are use to a "traditional candidate" mold and that candidate following certain procedures for running for president. The latest attacks on Palin is coming on the eve of her new book coming out Tuesday entitled "America By Heart". It's really no surprise that the media and the many Palin critics have to somehow throw some cold water on Palin to somehow try and keep her from getting hot prior to what is geared to be another best selling book tour. As I've said from day one, I know how the political and media game is played. The media and other anti Sarah trolls are foaming at the mouth at the real possibility that Bristol Palin could win in the finale of Dancing With The Stars tomorrow night. I have to go back to the comments by Barbara Bush for a moment. Many conservatives wished that Reagan never picked Herbert Walker to be his running mate in 1980. Reagan is remembered with great fondness for being a principled conservative where as Bush 41 was knowing for riding the coat tails for Reagan and ultimately making it possible for Bill Clinton to become president in 1992. That is one of the fewest major blunders that Reagan ever committed. Many wished that Herbert Walker along with Barbara would have stayed in Massachusetts. The reason why anti Sarah Palin snipes can't debate me and her supporters on the issue of Sarah Palin's qualifications to be president is, because the arguments that go in her favor are all based on facts where as the negatives are based on opinions, gossip, smears and lies. Palin has earned the right to run for the GOP nomination. She in essence saved the GOP from it's certain death as a national party. While she has been going after Obama, Pelosi, Reid and others on their failed polices, other potential 2012 GOP candidates have been silently standing by watching trying to keep their powder dry. Frankly, I don't respect that. Why are they waiting for a certain time to speak out? Palin was doing it when it wasn't deemed popular to do so when Barry was first elected. I chuckle when I hear liberals claim that a Palin nomination will all but certain mean a second term of Obama. Bush 43 was considered a "dunce", "dummy","D grade student", "retarded" etc ,yet he still became not only president but a two term president at that. So if the strategy by the left and the big government, necon right is to use the art of tabloid journalism against Palin in an attempt to stop her, they might want to rethink their strategy. Rove has no credibility among true conservatives seeing that he helped George W Bush get elected in the first place. With the trust by the nation of the national media at an all time low, that onslaught of negative news by the media isn't going to work. What people seem to be forgetting is that "2012 isn't about Sarah Palin", It's about whether Barack Obama "is worthy of a second term based on his record". Seeing that the 2012 cycle unofficially kicked off the day after the midterms, I know I will have plenty more to say about the sufferers of SPODS, "Sarah Palin Obsession Disorder Syndrome" if she decides to run.
