As For The Losers Dumping On Sarah Palin

It amazes me to see how many silly people there are on the Right
who fail to appreciate Palin's significance in bringing in new people, faces and energy to our efforts these last few years - as well as the value of her being able to continue to do that. Yes, some perhaps too infatuated with a personality, than an ideal, may slip away. But in the end, what she has added and will continue to add will always far outweigh any real or perceived loss. She remains an asset and only fools and asses squander, or ´ú░seek to undermine political assets, especially in political times such as these. -Dan Riehl

Dan types for me.

Your Say

I totally understand her reasons for not running, and I support her decision.

Putting the pieces together form the interviews with Mark Levin and Greta and the postings at C4P, I get the idea that her elder children were the biggest factor behind her decision... or maybe not.

There are other children to think about here: Little Trig, Little Tripp and the little baby girl born to Sarah's elder son, I don't know her name. I believe the elder children were strongly speaking, not just for themselves, but for the little ones - including their young brother, who seems to have a speech problem. Not to mention that there's a daughter-in-law in the mix, who probably is not used to the limelight - nor would I blame her if she wants nothing to do with it.

After the clan has seen almost everyone dragged through the mud, including an innocent child, I don't think they're in any mood to see their enemies targeting even more innocents here. Defaming the character of Sarah's father, for one. Speaking false things about her brother, another. (Those two came from the same a-hole, Joe McGinnis.) What else? Going after little Tripp because he doesn't want to potty train? Going after Piper because she's her mom's "Mini-Me"?

At one point, the Palin clan were all going to say, "Enough!". They want their lives back. I don't blame any of them. At all.

Their enemies won, for now. But I can tell you one thing. When the proverbial $#!% hits the fan, Sarah Palin and her family will be fine. They hunt and fish. They learned how to earn an honest living - unlike their enemies. The Palins will never go hungry or needy: they have each other, and they will survive, come what may.

I cannot say the same thing about their enemies, though...

Reihl is self-refuting. Only asses call possible political assets/allies asses?

I think she has more power where she sits. Everyone knows how powerful she is. Why else would the left and the Republican elites fear her? Everyone knows she'd be a far better president than Obama. Everyone knows she represents what America needs, especially now. But while I believe she could beat Obama, it is too risky. If she ran, she would charge up Obama's base more than unify the Republicans and the swing voters. I'd like to see her continue being Sarah until the people finally get over themselves. Can you imagine if Sasha and Malia got the Palin-kid treatment??? Sarah is 1000 times the man Barack Obama could ever be. He is, by his kooky white mother's design, an Affirmative Action man and everyone knows that as well. The Palins have earned their respect the old fashioned way while the Obamas consider themselves simply entitled to it based on the color of their skin.

I concur and have promoted it!

Thank you for the promotion! Can you imagine the self-doubt Obama's presidency must be causing his liberal elite supporters who feigned enthusiasm for him for no other reason than to avoid having to support a hick from Wasilla? I entertain myself with that thought regularly.
