West in the VP slot, yes. I like Palin, but I have conceded that, for at least this election, her negatives are too high for the general public. Give it some time. She’s young and talented and this country doesn’t hate people like her for too long. If there’s one thing American pop-culture likes to do, it’s rebuild people after they’ve destroyed them. She will be a force in 2016 and 2020 and beyond. But in 2012, I think the answer is Rick Perry (if he runs) and West in the VP position.
They have already thrown the kitchen sink at her, and she survives. There is not much more “negative”. The other candidates, however, will be slaughtered by the MSM. If Palin wins the nomination, she will be Pres 45.
Romney will not survive Romneycare. If he were the nominee, he would be McCain II, meaning Obama’s 2nd term.
Pawlenty(?): if he adopts straight-talk instead of politician-talk, he may have a chance.
The ex-Godfather (Pizza) was good, except he didn’t know what “Right of Return” was at the time when Bibi was giving a teachable moment to Bobo. That’s troubling. Only a Democrat could be president of 57 states.
In the sequence in the video below starting at 3:15, Mr. Cain’s admission that he had not understood the subject, but that he has since educated himself on the question, shows a GREAT deal more character than most anybody else in politics. This man has demonstrated humility, an uncommon trait among our “leaders.” =^[.]^=
America doesnt have four more years to wait just so some losers can like Palin!
Stop , my knees go weak, I start hyperventilating, by the way that is one sexy pic, but I do agree with the above statement, Perry and West sound good. Better yet the nightmare libs never wake up from would be Cain, West and Jidal/ Haley thrown into the admin somewhere. HEH!, wait some Italian seasoning too with Chrisite.
These great Americans Palin-West are in their souls ungovernable like my Individual spirit born free-and we do not submit to Hollywood Media Jihad.
(Please note, Perry was close to losing until Palin came to Texas to rally for his campaign-I like Perry however it is Palin who is knows how to win)
I think the cheerleader section is setting a certain segement of the GOP and perhaps some independents up for a disappointment at the conclusion of the 2012 election. The first strategic blunder/mistake! The Tea party formally identified themselves as Republicans and ran on the GOP tickets in 2010 rather than independent tickets. That defeats their original claims of being ‘independents’ playing to a new ‘national conversion’ movement. They will now be seen nationally, as the rebel sibblings of the GOP. That alone can and may very well be an isolating factor for the GOP/Tea Party in 2012, no matter the candidates. Finally, in spite of the bad economy, high unemployment and rising national debt, the Tea Party/GOP has cornered themselves on massive social issues that may well not have the national or Party majority following they anticipated.
Whether we like it or not, Obama has not been a do nothing president and has a long list of accompishments though not all popular with the GOP/Tea Party….they do illuminate well with the majority democrat party and many independents especially, with the unions, social entitlement folks across party lines, the victims of natural disasters, healthier auto industries, restoring most american’s retirement investments through Wall Street, extended unemplyment benefits, no longer ‘exisitng’ health care restrictions, no more health care insurance caps and on down the long line.
Don’t get me wrong, it will be a fight as are all presidential elections but…..I’m not certain the GOP/Tea Party will have the national momentum and advantages they’ve have anticpated since 2010.
I know better than this, but my curiosity has gotten the best of me.
What are some specific examples that Obama has performed from the “long list of accomplishments”? “Restoring most american’s retirement investments through Wall Street?” Please explain exactly what Obama did to game the market? Are you perhaps referring to Ben Bernanke’s expansion of the money supply through quantitative easing? If so, the end of that story has not yet been written. “Healthier auto industries” and ” extended unemplyment benefits” – are you referring to the $1.4 trillion deficit run up in fiscal 2011 alone? The 18% of the work force that is unemployed or underemployed might take some exception to the argument that unemployment compensation on the national credit card is a substitute for real, permanent private sector jobs. “No longer ‘exisitng’ health care restrictions”and”no more health care insurance caps”? Try explaining those “accomplishments” to the people who have lost their existing coverage in anticipation of the “accomplishments” actually taking effect.
The real American voters see through the media hype on his “accomplishments” – the Emporer has no clothes!
Os-bama said he was going to funamentaly transform america,well hold on to your hat cause it aint over yet!
Oregonian….I think far to many of the ‘movement’ folks who call themselves conservatives forget they don’t nearly represent the majority of Americans on all isues, much less a majority of voting American’s on all issues. When one compartmentalizes all the the major issues, the scales of weights and measures does not relfect yours or the movements premises of absolute perception.
Many very negative economic things could have happened when Obama came into office and didn’t. You can squabble over the mechanics but the fact is, the nation didn’t fall into a serious depression. Unemployment could have easily risen to 20 to 25% and it didn’t.
Social issues! The majority of America’s were and remain effected by uncontrollable inflation of health care costs. Many American’s were and are affected by lack of access to health care for reasons of pre-exsisting condidtions. All American’s were affected by health care caps. Young addults who completed their educations or reach maturation age and unemployed were not eleigible for private sector health care coverage by parents and now they are to age 26. Again, while the full context and mechanics can certainly be discussed, advances that an over whelming majority of American’s consider very important were made. Similarly, child health care advances have been made though not receiving the media attention, that millions upon million of American familiers widely support.
Higher education cost supports for the overwhelming majority of American families have also seen widely supported advances.
Again, the GOP has now boxed themselves into a corner with proposed legislation surrounding government spending, national debt reduction, social security, medicare and medicaid that at least current polling does not support on the broader national level.
I could go down the long list of compartmentalized major issues but the point is that Obama promised a lot and in spite of the media coverage in many areas, he has accomplished a lot that was important to the majority of American’s at a personal level. He was and is, NO strategic dummy! Obama and the democrats will complete the list I don’t care to finish in this response and…….slam them home during this coming election season. In addition, he will be most redundant in claiming that his programs may not be perfect but that the GOP refused to submit anything substantive as alternative programs in legislative form.
Again, it will be a good fight as usual in all the rhetoric but, the GOP and now their Tea party subsidiary, have again failed to be very good at strtategic planning and certainly they have no plans with national consensus advantage, on any given major issues.
The GOP has become the disfunctional party! SAD!!!!
“I could go down the long list of compartmentalized major issues but the point is that Obama promised a lot and in spite of the media coverage in many areas, he has accomplished a lot that was important to the majority of American’s at a personal level.”
You won’t go down any long list, because you have real problems being specific, and when you are specific in the slightest degree–you reveal yourself to be clueless.
There is nothing Obama has done which is important to most Americans…which can help them. I think a majority know that most of what he has done if not all of it but all of it is a minor misstep at best, and some of what he has done is a giant leap in the wrong direction. I think they’ll vote that way in 2012.
Like your “arbitration panels” for healthcare cost lowering. Either they have no power to arbitrate, or they are a death panel. Either they are accountable to government–then they are a part of government–or they are an unaccountable death panel (if they have any power to make decisions).
But go ahead, instead of being a vacuum headed blowhard, be specific…
“Obama has not been a do nothing president and has a long list of accompishments…”
Such as winning the Iraq War? Passing Obamacare of which the connected supporters are waivered? Killed OBL with his bare hands? Closed Gitmo? Repealed the warrantless eavesdropping of the Patriot Act? Bankrupt the country to pay back his union bosses and Wall Street fat cats, such as Goldman Sachs, Citibank, Fannie, Freddi,…? Yeah, the list is looong, especially when he claims credits of others’, and blames all the woes on somebody else.
3 things I really like about this pic.
1) There is real warmth showing here. They are truly pleased to see one another.
2) Look at her arm muscles where she is shaking his hand. She offers a real handshake, not some limp noodle.
3) Some folks are still just going about there business… with Sarah Palin in their midst. Just folks.
Their business, not there business. (sigh) First post of the day, before I had finished my coffee.
2) Look at her arm muscles where she is shaking his hand. She offers a real handshake, not some limp noodle.
If you anticipata the other is going to give you a strong handshake (even accounting that he will not give as strong ones as for a man) it is safer to give a strong one to avoid having your hand hurt.
I’m from Texas, and though I voted for Perry, I’m just not sure. I agree with the caption – this would truly be a nightmare for the Democrats. The racist angle won’t work. Sexist angle won’t work. Though the liberal media have tried to destroy Palin, I know that West would stand up for her, unlike McCain. Palin has more executive experience than Obama, more qualification than Obama, a better record than Obama (based upon Obama before and after the election). The gaffes I’ve seen from Obama make Bush an absolute genius in comparison.
The day 7/4/2009 she stepped down to take all the arrows for us because she knew we did not have a leader, she stepped up, this is a strong woman and she has been out there front and center. People bring up the media and the negatives on Palin….the media are attacking us when they hammer her. These people hate us, their plan is to “fundamentally change our country”, that means us, “We The People”! So when I hear oh she can’t win or she has too many negatives, you are exposing your own fears of being attacked. Well, I myself say screw em this is war and these people will never destroy me or my family and that means they will never destroy her she won’t let it happen. It’s time people, to defend the governor is to defend yourself/family and our country. She has been dodging bullets for two years now with no help from the Republicans in DC, in fact they have been attacking her/us too. So all the others that are running can’t even measure up and never will it’s not in them. We will see this clearly as time goes by it has already started.
You go Grizzly!
Considering the traditional role of the Vice Presidential candidate as that of Attack Dog, I can think of no one else that comes close to Col. West.
When that man is confronted in a public forum, he is fearless. He can be seen moving towards the person confronting him, countering his argument forcefully and articulately. He knows his s***, too and isn’t afraid to let the person know that they are utterly mistaken.
Then again, we shouldn’t be surprised that he is fearless. After what he (and the hundreds of thousands of his brothers and sisters in arms) has had to endure in the Middle East, politics is beanbag.
Give that man eight years as VP under Palin and he will be a cinch to capture the White House upon her departure. Sixteen years should be long enough to rid ourselves of the progressive cancer that we are infected with right now.
That 3:00 AM phone call that Hilary referred to? No one would dare do anything to the United States that would cause President West’s phone to ring at that (or any) hour of the night.
And we can once again sleep soundly.
I’d vote for West in a heartbeat (if I could vote in a US election).
Hell, I’d vote for him even as PM of Israel. Every time I hear this guy speak, I’m more impressed. Can you imagine a debate between Obama & West? West would wipe the floor with him.
PALIN/WEST !!!!! UNBEATABLE !!!!MOVE OVER OBAMA, CZARS. COMMIES,
RINOS AND LET SOME FRESH AIR IN—SAVE OUR COUNTRY, GET BACK TO THE
CONSTITUTION, SECURE THE BORDERS AND CLOSE DOWN 2/3 OF THE “AGENCIES”
THAT ARE DRAINING OUR TREASURY AND DOING NOTHING!!
GOD BLESS THE USA !!!!
What Do you think of Cain,i think a Cain Palin debait would be interesting.
So who really was offended by the Morgan/Barkley exchange on TNT? She’d be down, except you would have to be a conservative black man. Greg Anthony just grinned from ear to ear. Between that and Bristol being on that roomate show with Kyle Massey, I think we knocked out a significant leg from the Obama re-election stool.
