Sarah Palin: Going Rogue (pic)

Seriously, wtf?  banghead 

She is nothing more than a money hungry sell out, imho. I'll pick up the condensed Going Rogue for Dummies this spring; maybe. Wonder what McCain will do with his autographed 1st edition?  vomit

Wow, took all of one post to bring up the "we're afraid of Palin" BS.

As in all the other Palin threads, let us say upfront. Nobody on the left is afraid of Palin. If that is all the Palinbots have to toss around it is getting pretty pathetic!


BTW Dx, once again, I did not start this thread!

I am sure somebody might be. I think a lot of people think she will stir up angry Republicans. I am a Republican, but I'm not angry.

Personally I think she is irrelevant, she was only the VP candidate to counteract Obama being black and to get some of the Woman vote that Clinton would have got. Palin would not have been a very good VP. Palin cost us the election, so I am not a big fan of hers. If we had to have a Democrat for President it should have been Hillary Clinton.

Looks like some Republicans are afraid of her too:

WASHINGTON (CNN) — The man who ran John McCain's presidential campaign warned Friday that Sarah Palin could lead to a 'catastrophic' election result for the GOP in 2012 if the former Alaska governor captures the party's presidential nomination.

It's not the left that's scared, and its not her that scares many on the right and in the center, its that fact to so many people (I had another word instead of "people" but I didn't want to seem too harsh) seemed to take such a fancy to her and hang on her every comment as if it were the best thing ever said. She was a shallow candidate who has done very little for any cause, and she even bailed out of the job she was hired for, but many people seem to love her for some reason and that is a reason to be scared.

But I will add one caveat: she is not irrelevant for the simple reason you noted, she badly affected the election. But that's politics.

Okay, well I'll fess up. I'm afraid. Not of Sarah Palin, but that there are numerous twits out there who keep her in the limelight, who would vote for her given the chance. It is painfully obvious how lacking she is in terms of emotional depth or intellectual acuity. If she were to actually succeed in winning the presidency we would once again have someone behind the throne actually running the administration (because she surely can't). And the results would likely be more disastrous than that of the Bush administration.

That's something to be afraid of.

Quoting Falstaff (Reply 6):

But how cynical is that? Can the Republican party do no better than Palin? Could they not find a single competent candidate who could attract female voters? That's pretty sad. It was extremely irresponsible and cynical of the McCain to even nominate her.

The man who ran McCain’s campaign, along with a few others in that camp, are hardly credible about anything. They sabotaged Palin outright not to mention ran one of the shittiest campaigns in modern history. If not for Palin, they’d have gotten buried. No cred whatsoever in citing a McCain campaign person.

She's managed to strike a cord with middle class families, especially working mothers. If that works in Seattle it'll work anywhere. I'll admit to being a bit angry about the way the US foreign policy is going, the economy is tanking and what I see as a money grab concerning some health care proposals.

Many VPs aren't all that good and I doubt any has ever cost anyone an election. Consider Dan Quale who was brought in for the Soap Opera crowd, or the current incumbent who covered the establishment guys. Neither could stand alone nationally.

Quoting Mt99 (Reply 7):

He lead McCain's catastrophic effort, right? I suspect he needs someone to blame for such a poor result. I don't believe the McCain/Palin package had any more of a chance then the Dole/Whoever package. Running old guys because it's their turn is a loosing strategy. I doubt we'll see the DNC running say, Byrd.

I don't know, but I think BHO is a just a front man for those on the far left. He came out of nowhere in a very short time. A lot of lefties thought the GWB wasn't running the show either. If you thought that it shouldn't be much of a jump to see why I might think that. Most people who run for president, that have a chance of winning, have been on the polictal scene for a long time. They don't need to be introduced to the country as the country already knows who they are. I think that the Democrats made a deal with Hillary because they needed a president who would do whatever the far left said, Clinton is her own woman and would do what she wanted to do and wouldn't let anyone walk on her.

People were talking about BHO running for President back in 2004 after he spoke at the DNC. I remember wondering at the time who BHO was. Usually when the media is talking about presidential candidates they mention people I have heard of. At the time BHO was a state senator and candidate for the US senate. There were a lot of other speakers at the DNC that year; such as these US senators: Tom Daschle, Dick Durbin, Ted Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, Barbara Mikulski, Harry Reid, Joe Biden, and Joe Lieberman. All of them were way more high profile and well known than BHO. I only remember the media talking about Clinton and Obama. It seems odd that the pundits were already talking about an unknown (on a national level) state level politician. The man didn't do anything spectacular, or anything too dumb either, to be noticed. Lots of other well known people spoke then too and none of them were mentioned as a being a possible POTUS.

There are a number of people pulling the strings, including Vallerie Jerret, Dave Axelrod and Rahm Emmanuel, and bunch of people a little further removed. It least we should all be hoping that they are running things, because Obama knows nothing about nothing. Seriously, for all the mockery that Dems heap on Palin, her accomplishments and character run rings around the current White House occupant.

The converse is also one possibility in looking at it too....

Now that she's stepped down, she can let it rip, uncorked, free from the encumbrances and restrictions she would otherwise have to deal with. She’s serving AK best by not being a distraction—she’s the “it” girl for better or worse so I thought there was a crazy-like-a-fox approach in delinking Alaska politics and that stuff from her personally. Moreover, she’s already added to the political debate via the Facebook postings, which have been well written and erudite.

Besides, as citizen and not governor Palin, she’s in a position to retort back to the Lettermans of the world. That’s one way of looking at it too.

It's a book, nothing more nothing less. I don't expect that the President will give her the Medal of Freedom for it but if it helps pay off some of her legal bills brought on by frivolous lawsuits then good for her.

I also cannot understand how "liberal" has become a dirty word for many in the US when most policies that are espoused by proud americans are exactly that - liberal... Centre-right and right wing economic policy is all liberal for example... most left wing economic policy (tariffs, taxes, protectionism etc) are exactly the opposite...

I couldn't disagree more. What the left wing attack media was doing was hardly a distraction and she shouldn't have let it bother her. As a successful governor of a big state while being a hottie and a mother of a big family she had the world by the balls but by throwing it away and stooping to Letterman and Couric's level she has discredited herself. It's a waste.

Yet somehow the flame was just too great to ignore here?

Anytime my friend, anytime. It is just soooo much fun to watch the Palinbots squirm whenever her name is mentioned!

Quoting Dtwclipper (Reply 27):
Please give us example of how the left is afraid of her

The thread, and the numerous ones like it, are replete with examples many of yours included.

Nice way of not providing an answer. Very clever indeed.

Now, how about backing up you statements with some facts.

I'm certainly not squirming. I'm happy her advance sales are doing so well. Obviously that bothers a lot on the left since the OP is clearly making fun of her and in the process setting himself up as a dummy.

They are all right there for the picking. Do you really want to go there? I'm on vacation so I have all day.

Nothing new. Just that Obama has never done anything useful to society.

By all accounts an affirmative action appointment.

How many brothels and crackhouses did he help set up? How many mortgage companies did he blackmail into giving loans to people who couldn't afford them (the subject of the training session where Obama is pictured at the blackboard). And wasn't it mortgages to people who shouldn't have them that caused... naaahhh.

Part-time, Training more scumsucking lawyers. Considering we have 70% of the world's lawyers already, that is hardly useful, and considering his radical views on Constitutional Law, I doubt his pupils will be very useful either.

eight years as a state representative

Woopty-do. Amateur league. A state rep has virtually no responsibility.

Quoting Planespotting (Reply 32):
four years as a US Senator

Two years. The remaining two he was in full campaign mode. And a senator has little responsibility as well.

I see no executive experience. No experience creating anything. Lots of experience on how to take stuff though, I'll grant you that.

Quoting Mt99 (Reply 7):
Looks like some Republicans are afraid of her too:

WASHINGTON (CNN) — The man who ran John McCain's presidential campaign warned Friday that Sarah Palin could lead to a 'catastrophic' election result for the GOP in 2012 if the former Alaska governor captures the party's presidential nomination.

The man who ran McCain’s campaign, along with a few others in that camp, are hardly credible about anything. They sabotaged Palin outright not to mention ran one of the shittiest campaigns in modern history. If not for Palin, they’d have gotten buried. No cred whatsoever in citing a McCain campaign person.

Correct, the McCain camp is nothing but a bunch of loosers. They should have been Democrats in the eyes of most GOP'rs I know.

Everyone does know that Sarah Palin's book, "Going Rogue, an American life" will have a first printing of 1.5 million copies, something almost unheard of. In Contrast, both Obama's and Bill Clinton's books got a first printing of 500,000 books, and Hillery Clinton's book got a first printing of 1 million books.

Gov. Palin could make $7M from this book

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/27755392/

Or $11 million

http://www.canberratimes.com.au/news...er-with-11m-book-deal/1362216.aspx

She is already a "best seller" at Barnes and Noble, and Amazon.com

http://www.reuters.com/article/vcCandidateFeed7/idUSTRE5905X220091001

I wonder how many books will be in the second printing?

Quoting MBMBOS (Reply 9):
If she were to actually succeed in winning the presidency we would once again have someone behind the throne actually running the administration

I believe that that's the case today. As far as I can tell our current President's experience consists solely of raising political contributions on the streets of Chicago.

Quoting Gatorman96 (Reply 12):
I bet she is looking at Russia...

 laughing  That's funny, at least to someone who's been there. Those who haven't may not see the humor.

Quoting MBMBOS (Reply 14):
And who, pray tell, do you think is really running the current administration? Inquiring minds would like to know.



Quoting Dreadnought (Reply 21):
There are a number of people pulling the strings, including Vallerie Jerret, Dave Axelrod and Rahm Emmanuel, and bunch of people a little further removed. It least we should all be hoping that they are running things, because Obama knows nothing about nothing.

I'd start with Reid and Pelosi, Obama has said that he will sign any health care legislation they send him. I'd guess that promise also applies to other types of legislation. Money talks so George Soros would also be an important player. Obama worked with the folks at Acorn and Acorn has received government grant money so I'd look there also.

Quoting Dtwclipper (Reply 29):


BTW, it is Quayle.

Thanks. I just don't care enough about him to look it up.  biggrin 

Quoting Dtwclipper (Reply 29):
If he were around to day (as in polotics), people would be having a field day. He was a lot of fun back in the day.

 checkmark  All true but my point is that even a VP such as Quayle couldn't lose an election, even with two efforts!!  eyepopping 

Thanks,  smile

Sure, I want someone to please detail how people are afraid of her. You folks go on and on about some mystical fear the left is supposed to have of her, but you guys can not provide facts. So, please provide some.

A state rep has to learn how to make friends and get votes and promote legislation (and make sure it gets through). It's mission and team building, across both parties. Much more complicated than running for the mayor of a small town on an anti-abortion platform ...

Here we are once again. Another political thread which has degenerated into an immature Republicans -v- Democrats argument.

It's also the same few members who are spoiling the discussions for all.

If members continue to destroy every American political thread on this forum, the threads simply won't be allowed to continue.

Many of the above posters need to seriously alter their posting style immediately in order to remain discussing subjects such as this on Airliners.net.


Thread Locked.
