OK, I'm coming out as a Sarah Palin fan. Certainly not for her political prowess or her acute understanding of American History. No, I'm kind of drawn to her for her uncanny ability to command massive amounts of attention while possessing no discernible skills or talents. Good for her. She's the political equivalent of Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian.

Funny how when Candidate Obama said there were 56 states, no one (in the mainstream media) seemed to find any fault with that....

Many of you claim Sarah Palin is wrong. I wasn't sure, so I read an NPR transcript between the host Melissa Block and Professor ROBERT ALLISON (Chairman, History Department, Suffolk University).

I can't figure out if this recurrent regurgitant is a silly comment or what.

For one, it WAS talked about. A lot. (If it wasn't, neither you nor I would know about it, 3 years later.) Second, it was also clear that it was nothing more than misspeaking, noting that he had been to 57 states, and had 3 left.

Do you actually believe that Obama thinks there are 60 states? Answer it.


Here's the difference with Palin: that wasn't simply misspeaking. That was misknowing. That was Palin not having a freakin' clue what she was talking about, and then telling everyone that she was right when she was called out for it. (And then having her people edit the wikipedia page to make her look correct.)


I will be expecting an answer shortly from you and others about whether you actually believe Obama thinks there are 60 states.

Well he did think the stimulus would get unemployment under 8%.

This discussion is more to do with destroying someone than what she knows or who knows etc. Facts are many politcians aren't pretty bright and are simply book smart. Which IMO is more dangerous and gets proved every day.

Do I want Palin to be the nominee? Not really but to constantly slog on with this media matters garbage that she isn't fit to serve because Couric doesn't feel she reads the right things or she goofs up certain history is just ridiculous. This woman will be in office somewhere soon. It won't be president this time and probably won't be ever but I can't believe the pro left just keep beating this drum and ingoring the fact their handling of the economy is driving us deeper in the hole.

I will be expecting an answer from you and others not what Obama knows about Geography but what he is going to do about our budget and the biggest two entitlements being broke in 25 years. Without just scapegoating the rich to kick up which we all know still won't raise enough money.

She is a creation of the state of Alaska who voted her Governor and she did a decent job. It wasn't till she opposed the messiah did she become something else. Like anyone who does since the pro left can't handle the fact the person in office has proven what everyone knew in 08' That he is huge on rhetoric but has no substance.

So, only tactic that can work since the media is controlled from the pro left is to run with birther nonsense and now Palin is stupid she isn't fit to run propaganda. It's laughable. Even in the face of rising unemployment and no cure in sight.

Wallace is nothing, the majority of the media assault on a regular basis has been Matthews, Maddow, Cooper, Jansing, O'Donnell etc. The core of the pro left.

I already addressed this. You seem to want to just ignore the bulk of the Palin bashers that make up the pro left. You know the one that Rahm Emanuel called "retards"? As for "my side" I would hardly call Karl Rove "the side" She actually has some electability on a smaller scale and could be a Senator or Congresswoman soon. Ewwwww now that would be sweet to see Chtis Matthews and Anderson Cooper's faces when that happens. Will be priceless.

All the emails being released so far are showing her to have been deeply involved in matters of state. These emails (I'm still waiting for Obama's emails from his Senate days) are looking like a backfire on the liberal rags that demanded them, thinking that they could find a 'gotcha' in there.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110611/ap_on_go_ot/us_palin_emails

Personally I don't want her to run for President. While I like many of her ideas, too many people out there suffer from Palin Derangement Syndrome, and that is a killer. Plus, she still, after over two years, has not hired a vocal coach to improve her speaking voice, which grates on me like nails on a chalkboard. Her best function is as a campaigner. The GOP is most likely going to bow to the center and choose a RINO-esque candidate like Romney, and Palin's job is to motivate the base (Tea Party, Libertarians, Constitutionalists) to get out and vote for him, even if they have to hold their nose while doing so. The alternative is 4 more years of the Amateur-in-Chief.

You have to remember when you say moderate it's usually mostly on social issues. As for selling out. I saw Scott Brown in California engage with some real righty conservatives and they treated him like a rock star. Don't buy into the MSNBC dribble that the tea party is going to somehow take over the GOP if someone close to center runs. They want big government stopped. They could care less about anything else. I mean heck they would support Andrew Cuomo if he ran on his record on NYs fiscal issues even though he is liberal on the social side and he is a Dem!

Palin isn't going to endorse until she has to. Right now she is still playing the game, driving the pro left nuts and making her bank happy. In the end I am pretty sure she will be on board.

That's right. The Tea Party is basically a one-issue platform. Stop the endless expansion of government and bring it back down to constitutional limits (at which point you start to have disagreements - what are those limits).

But in spite of what Nancy Pelosi and Media Matters would have you believe, the Tea Party is a genuine grassroots movement and there is no control over people who jump on the Tea Party bandwagon and try to adopt the name in their favor. So you will have so-called Tea Party candidates who really are not (like the recent NY special election), or those who try to throw on a social conservatism platform.

It's semantics. Chris Matthews would have you believe that if you believe in one you have to be anti abortion, gay marriage etc but this is totally baseless. At the end of the day they want a smaller government. Jobs and to keep more of what they make. Which is what will drive this election. Not gays marrying or anything else.

In fact, I defy you to mention five such instances where Obama has uttered completely false facts and then vehemently backed them up and were ignored by the media.

This is what Politifact.org says about the Revere episode:

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-me...ng-british-part-paul-reveres-ride/

Quote:
Again, here's what Palin said in her Fox News interview, after she'd been challenged on her initial account of Revere's ride. "Part of his ride was to warn the British that were already there that, "Hey, you're not going to succeed. You're not going to take American arms. You are not going to beat our own well-armed persons, individual, private militia that we have...He did warn the British."

Again, it so happens that after he was captured, Revere did "warn" (or boast) that armed Americans were awaiting the British militia. Palin's comments touch on this little-known part of history. But Palin's comment clearly suggests that one of Revere's aims that night was to warn the British. It was not. His aim -- in his own words -- was solely to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock of British troop movement. We rate Palin's comment Barely True.


So - somewhat distorted, but there was a grain of truth in what she said (and to be honest I didn't know all those details about Revere's Ride - did you?)

In fact, I defy you to mention five such instances where Obama has uttered completely false facts and then vehemently backed them up and were ignored by the media.

Some other results from Politifact.com

"If you actually took the number of Muslims [sic] Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world."


"And 100 percent, John, of your ads . . . 100 percent of them have been negative."


Obama ad contends that John McCain endorses Rush Limbaugh's comments about immigration.


Under President Barack Obama, the United States has "doubled our exports."


The president’s proposed budget "will help reduce the deficit by $400 billion over the next decade to the lowest level since Dwight Eisenhower was president."


Under the White House’s budget proposal, "we will not be adding more to the national debt" by the middle of the decade.


Twelve judges have thrown out legal challenges to the health care law because they rejected "the notion that the health care law was unconstitutional."


There are about 45 more outright falsehoods from Obama, and I did not rank or sort them, I just listed the most recent ones.

And what do you think about the current witchhunt around her emails just released? You have thousands of reporters poring over those thousands of emails for ... what? There is no particular reason, they are just looking for 'gotcha's. So far they have not found any.



I want to see Obama's emails while he was Senator. What's good for the goose must be good for the gander, right?

Funny how when Candidate Obama said there were 56 states, no one (in the mainstream media) seemed to find any fault with that....

Slip of the tongue...just like our "North Korean allies", except that instead of admitting it, she blasted the media for blowing it out of proportions, but then again, does the same thing to others.

Palin's job is to motivate the base (Tea Party, Libertarians, Constitutionalists) to get out and vote for him,

Fat Chance. You know as well as I do that if she doesn't get the nomination (or a ride on the ticket), she'll support a third party candidate (independent most likely from the Tea Party) to fill the seat or at most remain silent if the person does not represent the core ideals of the Tea Party movement.. Anything left of Palin is left and not even considered for office as a senator, representative, governor, etc.

Ok that is 1 issue. Does it mean that there are no others? How can you guarantee that there are no others?

From the Tea party.net website:

The Tea Party movement is a grassroots movement of millions of like-minded Americans from all backgrounds and political parties. Tea Party members share similar core principles supporting the United States Constitution as the Founders intended, such as:

• Limited federal government
• Individual freedoms
• Personal responsibility
• Free markets
• Returning political power to the states and the people

As a movement, The Tea Party is not a political party nor is looking to form a third political party any time soon. The Tea Party movement, is instead, about reforming all political parties and government so that the core principles of our Founding Fathers become, once again, the foundation upon which America stands.

How so, she seemed quite civil to me when explaining their naive position on the Paul Revere account.

Why would she endorse a candidate in whom she does not believe? I don't get it. If there are no good choices, why choose in the first place?

The President and his cadres are wrong by virtue of their entire agenda ... policies and ideas ... 100% pct wrong. He uses generalizations that sound harmless to a welfare recipient ... but if you understand were he comes from and you read his books you get it.

Like Obama talking about the " Policies of the past " .... what is that?. Is it the past that has built America into the single largest economy in the history of man kind ? Is it the past that has developed and produced more man kind changing products than any other society in the history of man?.. Is it the past that has created the largest middle class than any other society ...ever .. ???

The president is a shallow left wing professor who was brought up by a little red school house mother ... who hated Capitalists and taught him the ways of the left wing agitators. He sees our country as flawed as she did...and buys into the ideas taught in the little red school house... that we are the scourge of man kind ...greedy ..oppressive ..imperialistic and violent.

His Mothers work with Timmy Guitners father ... implementing the ideas of "Micro-finance" in Indonesia was brilliant! Essentially the ideas of Fannie and Freddie Mac ... HUD and all the other redistributive hand out programs of Obama were ingrained by his communists mother .

And I bing facts ... read his book he tells us exactly what he is ... Palin is polar opposite.

It was a different time and place my man .... things have changed people see the real man now. For me the best thing that has ever happened politically is Barack Hussein Obama and his policies .

The party is not against Gay marriage. It is not one of their positions. Many individuals in the party are against gay marriage, but that is their freedom of choice. Should you not be tolerant of this? Just like they should be tolerant of a gay's opinion?

Sure, and he is STILL competitive - beating Palin by double digits, beating Romney (depending who you believe)..

It is within the real of possibility that he will get a second term. If he does, what does that say "America". From the polls, and from your insight, it seems that the majority of American are Communist. Either that you are suggesting that Americans as stupid..

Shame on me for what? Perhaps, shame on you for putting words in my mouth.

Obama might win a 2nd term. He loves to redistribute the wealth by signing through as much welfare legislation as possible. Tens of millions of Individuals become accustomed to receiving "addictive-like"handouts. It's a ploy Obama practices well. He transforms the mind set of many people from "wanting to work hard in order to earn a living" to one where they feel entitled to receiving everything from a large government. It's why he is not serious about cutting spending. The larger the government, the more powerful it is, the more people will rely on it. Millions will lose their individual freedom, fall to Obama's manipulation, and have no other choice but to vote his way.
