Quotes of the day

***
“Weird how Christie says absolutely *nothing* about the current president who can’t open his piehole w/o a teleprompter, but goes after Palin…

“.@GovChristie is bad on immigration, 2nd amendment, & supports cap & tax. And he has the gall to even *talk* about Palin?…

“I’m wondering, how long would @GovChristie, @INGovernor & @MittRomney survive under the same kind of scrutiny Palin has for years?”

***
“Chris Christie says what I’ve been saying forever: If Palin wants to prove she has the mettle to stand up to Ahmadinejad, she has to show the mettle of standing up David Gregory and George Stephanopolous. Her FaceBook/Friendly Media agenda proves she can, like Barack Obama, give a fine interview when gently questioned; it doesn’t prove she can actually stand up to the fire.

“I keep hearing she’s the only candidate who’s been baptized by fire but I haven’t actually seen her in fire for quite a long time.

“But Chris Christie, and I, are bad people for noting this, or bad people for wondering what it will take for Palin to reverse her horrible unfavorable ratings.”

***
“We thought perhaps Christie was just too damn lazy to watch 60 minutes of unscripted Palin. So, we figured we’d help him out. We compiled this short 14 minute video of Governor Palin addressing a wide range of issues including healthcare, deficit, budget, energy, environment, foreign policy, civil debate and much more unscripted in front of a group of socially liberal Democrats and Republicans in an area where the Democrat Party is strong.

“Christopher, it took us quite a while to compile this just for you. We assume you’ll take the time to watch it.”

I guess being accused of inspiring a mass murderer doesn’t count? What a dipstick.

Palin will NEVER get a fair shake from the MSM. EVER. They have proven this time and time again.

That said – why SHOULD she give them another chance? Because certain people want her to?

Been there, done that. And it was nothing short of a coordinated (see JournoList) character assassination from the word “go.”

So – F the MSM and the horse they rode in on.

If Palin was on with Gregory or George S, she wouldn’t get the same questions other potential candidates get.
They would bring her kids into the discussion, then complain that she parades them around like props.
They speculate whether she’s had plastic surgery and whether her hair is coming out. Would they dare ask a man this stuff? Absolutely not.
I want Huckabee to spend an hour with George S and talk about his full body lift and how much his dental implants cost.
Will they ask Romney what hair gel he uses?
Does Christie gets his clothes from the Big and Tall store?
Hey Mitch Daniels, when the wind blows, does your combover fly away?
Newt, do you ever feel guilty for bringing impeachment proceedings against Clinton when you were screwing a member of your staff during the same time?
T-Paw, oh forget it, no one cares!

I’ve got nothing against Christie, but outside of deep blue areas he is a Democrat. If he want’s to run he should challenge Obama in the primary, and I think he’d win.

And if Republicans nominate another lame “Compassionate Conservative”, Christie will also win the General.

Republican faithful urge GOP to ‘Stop Palin’
**********************************************
By Sheldon Alberts, Washington Correspondent,

WASHINGTON — The knives have started to come out for Sarah Palin in the Republican Party.

With the former Alaska governor now actively exploring a White House bid in 2012, establishment Republicans have begun urging party leaders to begin a Stop Palin movement aimed at preventing her from romping to the Republican presidential nomination.

Describing her alternately as “maniacal,” “dopey” and “hated by millions,” former Florida congressman Joe Scarborough and longtime GOP strategist Ed Rollins this week called into question Palin’s fitness for office, telling fellow Republicans she stands no chance of defeating President Barack Obama in a head-to-head contest.

“Republicans have a problem. The most-talked-about figure in the GOP is a reality show star who cannot be elected,” Scarborough wrote in a Politico.com article.

“And yet the same leaders who fret that Sarah Palin could devastate their party in 2012 are too scared to say in public what they all complain about in private. Enough. It’s time for the GOP to man up.”

Possible answers are…

2. He is setting up a run for someone else (Jeb Bush, etc)

3. He is following orders from the GOP insiders and just doing his bit for the team.

predator on February 28, 2011 at 11:15 PM

Its not just Liberals who fear Sarah Palin. There are some otherwise “smart” people on the Right who have a very myopic vision where it comes to her.

For me its simple, did anyone try to link Christie to a mass murder? No, you know why – he’s beatable and no threat. Palin and the Tea Party are. That’s a better gauge of reality than someone’s “favorable rating”.

I’ll tell you, the stuff that took place in the wake of the Arizona shooting crystallized EVERYTHING for me.

Sharr on February 28, 2011 at 11:21 PM

If Palin wants to prove she has the mettle to stand up to Ahmadinejad, she has to show the mettle of standing up David Gregory and George Stephanopolous.

This I don’t get. I don’t want Palin to sit down and have an interview with Ahmadinejad. I don’t want her to stand up to the scrutiny of Ahmadinejad. I don’t want her to reason with him.

I think what the write (Ace?) wants to say is that he wishes Palin would take on the media like Reagan did. If so, fine. But this is a bad comparison.

MeatHeadinCA on February 28, 2011 at 11:21 PM

Good QOTD AP.

Everyone must listen to/watch the last video. THAT is a President Sarah Palin. If people want to call Palin stupid, accuse her of a supposed lack of unscripted moments with all the right people, make fun of her accent, then go right ahead. I’m concerned about her political positions on issues, her character, her worldview. When Sarah Palin is unleashed-as we see in this video-look out. The negative, hypercritical narrative has been pushed about Palin, and they’ve set the bar so low for her. When people see the real SP, look out. Democrats and RINOs have reason to be afraid. Very afraid.

Ted Torgerson on February 28, 2011 at 11:26 PM

Christie is attacking her because he wants to make nice with the likes of Gingrich, Rove and Krauthammer. They hate Paline, they can’t fathom the possibility of a down-to-Earth passionate female running the show.

We all know that the presidency requires firm convictions. But the role is also about appointments and support personnel. I have far greater faith in who Palin would hire than I do Newt, et al.

BUT, if Paline decides not to run, my ticket is

CAIN / WEST 2012!

cannonball on February 28, 2011 at 11:27 PM

Hey sh*tface Ace, why just pose conditions for Palin? Why not for Chrisite? Has he taken on Obama yet and made a difference on national policy? Until he has, he has not fit for presidency.

I don’t even understand the logic of pitting a fantasy candidate against Palin when CC himself says he won’t run.

promachus on February 28, 2011 at 11:29 PM

“I keep hearing she’s the only candidate who’s been baptized by fire but I haven’t actually seen her in fire for quite a long time.”

Ok, this just goes to demonstrate that folks are not interested in whether she’s qualified or not, they just don’t like her, don’t want her to run, whatever.

There is no way an honest person can look back at the last 3, 6, 12, 24 months and not point to some serious anti-Palin fire that she’s been weathering from the left, from the right, from center, etc.

This quote is one of the dumbest and/or most transparently dishonest things I’ve read in awhile – and there’s been plenty of that to point at.

Hmm…

Dongemaharu on February 28, 2011 at 11:32 PM

Ace is absolutely right. The Democrats and the MSM will try to savage the Republican nominee, and with Palin it will be taken to another level. And it’s troubling because Palin might not even be able to handle – never mind come out on top – of a pressing interview or debate from an opponent or critic. It looks like a train wreck waiting to happen. And then you have to take into consideration the dangers of a Palin candidacy turning into a circus with the re-emergence of people like Levi Johnston, Tina Fey etc. It’s going to be a huge distraction and drain trying to combat that crap alone. It will take the spotlight off making the election about Obama’s record and the direction he has taken the country. It’s going to be Palin this or Palin that and not in a good way.

gumble on February 28, 2011 at 11:32 PM

Christie is not ready for prime time. He knows very little about foreign policy and is very liberal on issues that are important to conservative Americans. He should work on solving problems in New Jersey and not comment on possible Republican candidates.

Excerpt from the speech “Citizenship In A Republic”, delivered at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on 23 April, 1910. Teddy Roosevelt

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

Christie was not knocking Palin. He’s just brandishing his own New Jersey tough-guy brand. I don’t see what all the fuss is about.

Whatever. You’re a ball-less whiner there and a ball-less whiner here. You complain about “true-cons”, we complain about you. Suck it up.

Could be a sop for the higher ups in turn promising a nod to “El Nacho Libre” (Christie) in 2016?

TR huge progressive. Read the speech “The New Nationalism”, which he gave in 1910.

TR was pretty much a socialist.

Bad enough he’s on Rushmore, let’s not swoon over him here….

We have been over this with you a zillion times. You are still using a scoring system which is utterly subjective by an agency that has the most specious conflicts of interest with population control (NumbersUSA). Palin stood next to Brewer, the Gov of AZ, at the signing of AZ law, what more do you want?

he says things to be nice to the left, he kills them with kindness, but he governs from the right

In between watching his dem friends flee the state and getting mad at the R legislature for bringing up items that weren’t part of his scripted agenda…

Ace shilling for the R establishment makes me wonder who his “base” is…

Gohawgs on February 28, 2011 at 11:43 PM

Great idea, gumble. Let’s let the media and SNL pick our candidates for us. What could go wrong??

But, but it worked so well last time! Oh, wait…

predator on February 28, 2011 at 11:43 PM

I can’t wait for rubio to run. And when the left savages him I think I’ll join in just for the shi!s and giggles….

If he said the same thing about Obama, I could dig it…

MeatHeadinCA on February 28, 2011 at 11:44 PM

And it’s troubling because Palin might not even be able to handle – never mind come out on top – of a pressing interview or debate from an opponent or critic.

gumble on February 28, 2011 at 11:32 PM

Did you watch the clip?

Geochelone on February 28, 2011 at 11:41 PM

Don’t be ridiculous. I want immigration enforcement. What a stupid question.

I want illegals back in their home countries. I want existing laws enforced and nothing more, nothing less.

You have denied and lied about Palin’s amnesty position a zillion times, yes, that is true.

You better wake up. Don’t be so happy to get screwed over by your own party, fool.

Yes..and that rating is based on a provoked question from OReilly when he was being particularly nasty. She is great on immigration just like everything else. She is the real deal..and there isn’t another in the bunch of wannabes that can top that.
