Biden: I won’t underestimate Palin

posted at 2:35 pm on November 21, 2010 by Cubachi

Vice President Joe Biden is known to have a slip of the tongue or two. Okay, the guy is gaffe-prone.

But are his latest comments about Palin, gaffes or honest assessments?

A few days ago, Biden was on “Morning Joe” and was asked by the hosts about Palin’s reply to Barbara Walters on whether or not she has what it takes to defeat Obama in 2012.

Although Biden thinks Obama can defeat Palin, he is not willing to accept the notion that she may not pull through. Is this another gaffe or a rare dose of truth by Biden?

“I don’t think she could beat President Obama.But, you know, she’s always underestimated.”

“[She's a] “real force in the Republican Party.”

Sure Biden laughed off the notion of Palin defeating Obama. However, in another interview last Thursday with Larry King, Biden reiterated that Palin is not to be taken lightly:

“Were I a Republican senator or a Republican political leader, I would look and say, ‘Wait, she’s got a good chance of getting the nomination.’ But look, it’s hard enough for us to figure out our side of the aisle, let alone go over and sort of handicap whether she can win or lose.”

So is this any indication that the left is taking Palin seriously? Even the Telegraph, in a snarky, but sobering take, printed an article titled: “President Palin? Don’t dare dismiss it.”

With the recession enduring, and Obama and the Democrats over-reaching with healthcare reform, these are propitious times for a populist such as Palin, especially one from a frontier state that reinforces the nation’s pioneering spirit.

Moreover, the Republican field for the nomination is, to her benefit, wide open. There is no outstanding candidate and her rivals are all men, who will be wary of criticising not only the only woman among them, but the only candidate with a solid nationwide following.

Although liberals, and some republicans like to laugh off a candidate Palin (Barbara Bush told Larry King Palin should “stay in Alaska”), she is the only republican among the 2012 field, that generates any excitement and has the most ardent of fans. Do you think republicans fear her power as a candidate? Do democrats fear she can defeat Obama?

Given the number that say they would NOT vote for Barry’s re-election, I can see why Biden would be sober in his assessment.

They would not necessarily be voting FOR a candidate, so much as they would be voting AGAINST Barry.

Hey! Isn’t that how Barry got into office in the first place?

Palin is the only potential candidate that is willing to call a spade a spade concerning Obama. She just doesn’t hesitate to call it like it is. Think about it; after the full scale onslaught she suffered at the hands of the media and BOTH political parties while Barry was never, ever, vetted, do we really believe that Palin hasn’t quietly been getting ready to do the vetting of Obama that the media won’t? She’s already started hitting the guy from all directions. She’s got Barry’s number and she getting ready to place the call.

jimmy2shoes on November 21, 2010 at 2:45 PM

Ironically the one politician many on our side to be considered a buffoon is right on the mark with his comment.

I have never said unequivocably that Palin will win the 2012 GOP nomination or beat Obama in the general election but I can make one prediction:

ONE OF THESE FIVE PEOPLE WILL BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES:

1)OBAMA

2)BIDEN (FOR THE OBVIOUS REASON)

3)HILLARY CLINTON (STILL A LONG SHOT)

4)SARAH PALIN

5)MITT ROMNEY

No dark horses are viable and Jeb Bush says he will not run.

When people say Palin is unelectable, they’re talking about her pesonality. Just as Obama’s narcissism rubs so many conservatives the wrong way, Palin’s traditional life and outspoken conservative values rub many LIBERALS the wrong way. You want a President you can understand, who is somewhat like you. So many people can’t figure out Palin’s angle. They don’t understand what she stands to gain personally out of running for and becoming President. They really don’t. So they can’t vote for her. They’re not going to vote for someone who’s a puzzle to them.

Anti-Palin Republicans are afraid she can go all the way. Democrats probably genuinely think she’s a joke who would lose 49 states.

The most important thing is beating Barack Obama and getting him and the Democrats out of power in 2012.

The question is, is Palin the best candidate for that? One thing the Republicans are going to need from a candidate is someone who can withstand the media onslaught that will be coming because the MSM will be out in force to protect their boyfriend Obama. Palin hasn’t shown the ability that she can effectively manage those types of attacks. And the more the media feels it is having success knocking a candidate the harder they will attack. They will have more success in creating a circus like freak show atmosphere around her candidacy then with other candidates.

The media tried taking down Bush in 2004 but had it backfire on them in some instances(Rathergate). They also tried carrying Kerry’s carcass across the finish line but Kerry was just too much of a dead weight. Obama is more slick and a better BS’er than Kerry and the media really, really loves him.

The Republican candidate is going to have to make smart, sharp attacks against Obama’s record while also minimizing the damage the media will try to inflict on his/her campaign. I don’t see Palin being the right person for the job at the moment. However, if she were to win the candidacy, then I hope she beats Obama of course.

You’ve GOT to be kidding. She’s taken everything they can throw at her short of calling her a suspected serial killer and she’s still standing. When the other potentials take that kind of abuse and are still going strong, I’ll buy that argument.

Biden may be dumb, but he ain’t stupid. He knows that if Sarah Runs, she wins. I mean it’s a given to anyone who can read the tea leaves.

Biden is actually offering a sober assessment.

While the elites on “our side” are throwing the kitchen sink at her, trying to scare her away (ain’t gonna happen) Biden is looking at this and saying to his fellow democrats “Misunderestimate her at your own risk.”

Joe knows she cleaned his clock in their debate. He knows what many of his fellow travelers don’t.

The rate Barry’s going, Sarah will win a 1984 sized landslide. (49 states) I’m not even sure he can win Illinois.

Even better, Sarah will carry even MORE Republicans into Congress on her coattails. She might end up with a super-majority.

How will “unvetted” candidates hold up against that scale of attacks?

Hardly the most important thing is showcasing the utter failure of socialism, liberalism and progressivism so that not only is Obama hounded from office but the thought of electing another liberal is stricken from the minds of votes for the next 16 years.

Putting up socialist-lite Rinos will not accomplish that goal. and getting rid of the soialist Obama/dems and replacing them with socialist-lite RINOs will not be a great win. In fact as bush showed it can set the USa for destruction.

Are you HIGH?

My God, Palin has destroyed all credibility of the media in this country. She recently had the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal rip one of it’s own to shreds after the guy took her on.

Sarah Palin has a DEGREE in communications and JOURNALISM. She has effectively lectured the media on how to actually do their job, rather than what they are doing.

She has also mastered social media to a point that EVERY thing she writes is distributed to the world through the old corrupt media. She has effectively made them her slaves!

Hell, she tweeted the letter “P” the other day and the entire left wing went insane trying to figure out what it meant! I mean went CRAZY.

I think she did it just to play with them!

As for attacking Obama, she’s been doing that from day one. She was mad as hell when McCain made her hold back during the campaign! She wanted to turn it up to 11 on Ayers, Wright, Frank Marshall Davis, and so on.

All of the other GOPers are worried about being called a “racist” or some crap. Sarah is in a bi-racial marriage. Her children are bi-racial. You think charges of racism are going to bother her in the least? They haven’t so far, have they?

Sarah delights in her attacks against Obama. He has screwed with her since he has been in office. It was his hand picked thugs who attacked her in Alaska, filing bogus ethics complaints.

Obama attacked members of the ADF, WWII heroes, within days of taking office, and Sarah went to war with him over that. (and won)

Obama has also screwed with her baby, her gasline. That’s her signature achievement, and a much needed effort.

Sarah Palin, unlike the rest of the GOP show ponies sees Obama for what he is, pure evil. She will have absolutely no problem ripping him to shreds. And she’ll be smiling while she does it.

It’s Palin’s Party — And the GOP Establishment is a Jealous Ex-Lover By Nicole Coulter

It’s undeniable. Conservative Tea Party Republicans are having a political love affair with Sarah Palin. If things progress as they appear to be headed, we’re looking at a Summer 2012 wedding in Tampa, Fla., with a fall Honeymoon through the swing states.

And the GOP establishment can’t stand it.

In a classic scene, Julia is driving a stolen bakery van after Michael who is driving his car after the runaway Diaz, when Julia’s gay confidant, the charming Rupert Everett, gives her a dose of reality. Julia explains the situation over the phone, and Rupert asks quite astutely:

“And who is chasing you?”

When Julia replies, “No one,” Rupert says: “There’s your answer.”

Indeed, GOP Establishment. There’s your answer. No one in the conservative base is chasing Mitt Romney and Mitch Daniels as you try so hard to thrust them upon us. And as you attempt to break up our blissful romance with the more-exciting Palin, you only reveal your desperation.

The fact is, GOP Establishment: You blew it. You cheated on conservative principles in the pursuit of power, and left us us to the dark abyss of Obama, Reid, and Pelosi.

When Palin comes along with her good-natured common sense, her passion, and her fearlessness, we’re smitten. We can’t help ourselves. You tell us she’s no good for us, that she’ll wind up breaking our hearts in the general. You clandestinely make up lies about her character to poison our minds against her. But at the end of the day … we’re still head-over—heels, and no matter what you say, you can’t win us back.

At this point, the best thing for you to do, GOP Establishment, is to politely bite your disapproving tongue about our new relationship …

Former Clinton labor secretary Robert Reich made a couple of rather startling comments on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday.

During the Roundtable segment, the devout liberal not only defended former governor Sarah Palin as a “realistic candidate” for president, but also questioned whether or not the government bailout of GM was necessary (video follows with transcript

AMANPOUR: Let me — let me just play devil’s advocate. The midterms were characterized by the rise and the power of the Tea Party. Sarah Palin is a big backer, the godmother, the supporter. She — she made quite a lot of inroads. Many of her candidates, the majority actually won. Why is this so — so strange that she might win — run?

REICH:

You know, Christiane, I want to support your — and I think it’s actually more than simply raising the question here. Sarah Palin is not only a realistic candidate right now, but given the degree of anger in the electorate, anti-establishment anger, populist anger, she’s the only candidate to come along who actually embodies that anger.

This is not the ebullience and hopefulness of Ronald Reagan. This is not “Morning in America.” This is the anger of people who feel that they’re being screwed by the establishment.

AMANPOUR: And talk about…

REICH: And she is, I think — look, I’m not going to make any predictions, but I think that she does not have a negligible chance of becoming president.

Nice of you to admit your intellectual inferiority, @ss-man.

This parade of stupid – with Palin leading the way and the media straggling along behind like a 5th-string brass band – would be nothing short of hilarious if it wasn’t to determine the POTUS in a couple short years.

It is so fun to watch her win, and to see liberal heads explode.

Yesss!
I have never watched the show but will vote for her anyway. How do I do it, and when?

Meanwhile, Myth Romney has cornered the market on former McCain staffers and is in a holding pattern hopeing Palin doesn’t run. Good luck with that crew Mittens.

I doubt Mitt runs if Palin does. The establishment’s last hail mary will be to try to bring in a dark horse unknown as the “safe” choice. Possibly rubio but if they do they open themselves up to sexism charges sinc ehe has less experience than Palin and the talking point is she isn’t quailified….etc…the dems will also hammer him from behind the curtain as the next Obama little experience, unknow, no accomplishments……etc.

I doubt that rubio would be keen on the idea since his besty shot will be in 2016 if Palin loses and 2020 if she wins. But rubio will never see the WH if Palin wins as her VP will get 2 terms also. Maybe in 2028 Rubio might take a shot at it.

Yeap by the time the media/dems are done with mitt he will be a rich fat cat wall street establishment white guy whose compnay outsourced thousands of jobs and shut down family business firmly in the minds of americans.

And the dems will once again have the mantle of the populist anger directed at the establishment…….

None of this matters; Joe won’t get to debate stage with Palin because Bammie won’t win the democratic nomination. Uncle George and the progressives aren’t going to support someone that can’t come close to winning the general.

After Bammie has thrown so many under the bus, it will be a joy to watch it run him over.

I can think of only two that are worth a shit – Jeb and Sarah. The rest are too squishy and afraid of doing the hard work.
While I wasn’t keen on Jeb injecting himself into the Schiavo situation, he did leave my state in good shape. Of course, he was a businessman, not a lawyer.
