"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
In his first interview since receiving a heart transplant in March, Cheney told ABC News, that John McCain’s decision to pick Palin as his running mate in 2008 was “a mistake” — one that it is important from Romney not to repeat. The test to get on that small list has to be, ‘Is this person capable of being president of the United States?’”
Cheney believes Sarah Palin failed that test.
“I like Governor Palin. I’ve met her. I know her. She – attractive candidate. But based on her background, she’d only been governor for, what, two years. I don’t think she passed that test…of being ready to take over. And I think that was a mistake.” here
I like Dick Cheney. Even admired the man. He was an excellent, forceful and strong public speaker. But, as with so many Republicans, I wish he knew when to shut up.
Mrs. George H W Bush, among others like Cheney, feel the compulsion to spew their dislike of the Palin VP candidate. In part this might be done to have a moment of comradery with the biased liberal media. Goodness knows, these people must get tried of being hammered and maligned night and day. Or it could be they don’t like Gov. Palin because she’s ‘one of those Republicans’ – a conservative, not just in name only.
In any case, they all leave me cold, with their disrespectful, unneeded rhetoric. I know these people are not true Conservatives, but they could at least continue the pretense with these silly interviews. Interviews they know will be played ad nauseum by the liberal media, longing for their “see, I TOLD YOU SO” moment of glory.
I care about conservative principles. And that defines Gov. Sarah Palin. She wasn’t afraid to speak truth to power, as so many Republicans are. They’re eager to find some phony acceptance by the news media.
Sarah Palin understands the real war this country is in – conservatives are fighting for it’s eroding foundation. Something most Republicans do not comprehend, or even care to understand. She’s willing to fight the battles and take the bruises, insults and visceral hatred from the Democrats… and Republicans. Shame on all of them.
Are these Republicans so complete RINOized that they don’t recognized the facts? It wasn’t Sarah Palin who lost the last Presidential election – it was JOHN MCCLAIN, all on his own. He is a RINO, moderate, more concerned with reaching out to the (socialist) Democrats than ever listening to Conservatives. He lost for what HE did and didn’t DO. He was afraid to take on Barack Hussein Obama, which lost him the election.
All you naysayers and weak, sissified Republicans, shut up about your discontent over Gov. Sarah Palin. She might be more of a ‘man’ than you are and certainly more Conservative to the core, but that’s not her ‘fault’. She’s a strong, independent, God fearing woman – and that’s the real core of America.
