Steve Schmidt: Putting Palin on the ticket taught me there are worse things than losing

posted at 7:10 pm on March 12, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via Mediaite, Exhibit A in why John Podhoretz’s review of “Game Change” is titled “Back Stab.” Actually, scratch that; this is Exhibit Z. Schmidt’s getting more attention for it now because the movie’s getting attention but he’s been dumping on Palin publicly for more than two years and privately for who knows how long. (Leaks from unnamed staffers began less than a week after election day and Palin allies inside the campaign warned weeks earlier that they were coming.) This is his job now, I think — doing sporadic cable-news cameos as some sort of RINO Dr. Frankenstein who created a grassroots monster and has to atone by killing it. Michael Goldfarb, who left the Weekly Standard to join the McCain campaign’s communications team, has had enough:

I can’t speak to the film, because I can’t bring myself to watch it.

Other loyal McCain staffers I’ve spoken to have had the same reaction. While a few senior aides from the McCain campaign collaborated with the authors of Game Change and painted a picture of John McCain and Sarah Palin as so craven or ill-informed or incompetent that no handler could have gotten them elected, the reality is that John McCain was the better man and would have made a better president.

We lost that campaign partly because of events beyond our control, and partly as a result of bad counsel given by the same people who are apparently so flatteringly portrayed in this movie. John McCain deserved better than to be betrayed by his own top aides, and true to form he has honorably stuck by Gov. Palin even as she’s been smeared in the press over and over again by the same self-serving former staffers. I only hope that the Romney campaign takes notice of what’s happened here.

Says J-Pod, “The movie presents a moral case for the disreputable conduct of aides who, we can presume, fearlessly drop dirty dimes anonymously to save their own standing in the liberal culture from which they desperately wish not to be excluded.” Is that the explanation — that Schmidt is desperate to stay in the media’s good graces, maybe with an eye to a gig as a pundit? I’m not sure what he’d bring to a job like that besides paint-by-numbers Palin criticism for the MSNBC crowd. He could, I suppose, try to fill a niche as a more moderate Karl Rove, the campaign insider who knows how the process works and who loathes the right almost as much as his interviewers do, but Rove is a marquee name whereas right now Schmidt is really just “that guy who Woody Harrelson played.” Maybe he’s planning to rebrand himself as a strategist who caters to Republican candidates who disdain their own base? After the dismal failure of the Huntsman campaign, John Weaver’s likely done. Time for someone else to inherit that prized role.

The best part here is when he deflects a question about his own role in choosing Palin by saying, “Well, I was part of a team that settled on the result.” Click here and scroll down to “Narrative 4″ to remind yourself just how big a part he played in that particular result. Exit question: Knowing now how big a risk Schmidt is to sandbag a campaign once it’s over, why would any candidate hire him?

There is money and ratings in Palin hate. That’s why Schmidt does it and that’s why he’s gets booked. The fact that he gets to simultaneosly deflect from his own failings in the McCain campaign is icing on the cake.

Indeed!!

When the originally-anonymous sniping started right after the election, my first thought was that nobody on the McCain team ought to ever get hired by another campaign. To the credit of those who weren’t involved in this, it’s good to know who was actually behind it.

INC on March 12, 2012 at 7:23 PM

Ironic, these same rino traitors that have been smearing Gov. palin for almost 4 years, now are using Gov. Palin to make money off of her name by telling more lies.

These benedict arnolds that helped elect Obama are dead to me. Further, if you like these rodents, you’ll love romneycare because that’s who they back. Does this sh*t ever end.

Think about their logic, McCain Aug. 2008 was a sure loser dead in the water. They needed a spark so the rino’s gather to pick the most popular governor in the US, Gov. Sarah Palin. That spurred mccain to lead mcCain in the polls. mccain WOULD have become president if he, Scmidt and the other dolts didn’t back the bailout after the wall street crash.

Unfortunately for them, after her pick, they found out Gov. Palin isn’t one of them, she couldn’t be controlled. So in typical gutless beltway cesspool manner, before the election was even over they started to destroy Gov. palin.

One issue w/the right up, Karl Rove isn’t a conservative, he’s as rino as their is. His fingerprints were on the attacks og gov. palin in 2008!

No one WILL ever hire him to work on, let alone run, a campaign unless they have armor under their shirt to deflect the knife thrusts.

He’s trying to position himself for some sort of talking-head job, maybe try and bluster himself as “bi-partisan” by which he would mean willing to sell out anyone if the price is right.

If I was Sarah Palin, I’d send him a “Thanks for Everything” card and a bag with 30 pieces of silver in it.

Palin had been a governor of Alaska, with high security clearance, as she was commander-in-chief of a National Guard unit on high alert watching the Russian border. That alone made her more qualified than Obama in 2008. Looking at it purely objectively, as one might compare two resumes for the same job, she still is.

The only thing he feared in a President Palin was her power and the establishments inability to control her.

He feared her because he knew that if Sarah Palin ever became president Mitt Romney would never again have any chance of becoming POTUS. Instead of “Game Change”, it would have been “Game Over”, that is what Steve Schmidt feared.

tencole on March 12, 2012 at 7:36 PM

IMO I think he would have trouble with any woman being VP or President.

Palin was and is: strong on energy independence but with common sense environmental codes to keep the industry from polluting, strong on national defense, strong on support of Israel, strong on education, strong on pro-life, strong on the right to bear arms, strong on straightening out Wall Street and helping Main Street .

She would have been a great VP. The best tie-breaking vote in Congress ,if needed, next to Cheney. She would have been breathing down Reid’s neck to make Congress work and she would have made at least some of the Dems support at least a few more common goals than what has occured since 2009. She would NEVER have let Obamacare pass.

I hope that man never runs a Republican campaign ever again. May he run Dem campaigns from now on.

How badly is Steve Schmidt’s smear working out?

Even Howard Kurtz doesn’t believe him.

One of the scenes in the film Kurtz thought took some liberties was when Steve Schmidt is confronted at the 2008 Republican National Convention by a mob of reporters asking him about every little controversy surrounding Palin. Kurtz recalled his own experience covering the campaign and said the mob never happened. Strong said it definitely happened, just at different times during the convention, and they just meshed it all together into one big scene to make it look more dramatic.

Well there ya go dramatic licenses. Who you gonna believe Howard Kurtz, an unsourced book adapted for a hit piece, released just in time for the latest presidential campaign, or your lying reportin eyes/

Dr Evil on March 12, 2012 at 7:40 PM

Schmidt was borrowed from Arnold’s campaign, and had been a Rove protege, he had failed his first two campaigns, so thoroughly, the Kentucky one was actually a case study. Wallace came from Couric’s
shop, and had been one of Charlie, I mean Jeb’s angels.

I loved that clip of Andrew, talking about the male republican eunuchs in the republican party, that would let a conservative women, and her family be attacked and do nothing. We watched “Undefeated” last night on REELZ channel.

That’s the last straw. I’m not watching Morning Joe anymore.

I’m not a Palin adherent but I despise him as much as I do Richardson. Judases get theirs, they always do. May he scream in pain, horribly.
