I don't think she's 4'1. She's not on Little People Big World.

Why?

I really dont get it. People call their grandmothers maybe their moms and dad's racist because they want lower spending, and wear a god bless america t-shirt. Just cant let them do their thing, which is shout " stop spending my money" ( I know... frightening and most certainly a racist Statement .. taxes is code word for skin color )

Now it is Sarah Palin? she is like 4'1.
Was there any fear in that post? You're trying way too hard.

The rest of that post just didn't even make sense

No, it won't be Palin, so rest easy . You won't like the next President, but he actually has a very good track record, and the Demos' always liked him. Very respected on both sides Far left hates him ,but ,they dont like anyone. Not sure the far right does either, but they dont lke anyone ,either .

Not fear in the literal sense. I was generalizing. meaning they cant just let her go. Either it's fun, or they are scared of her. If they were not they would'nt pay any attention to her .

This is where I agree with the gentleman who said the President needs new people.

By this constant responding to the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck , Rush etc, they only bring attention to themselves. Ignore them , and be Presidential and above it if you think they have no creedance. Why give any response, or the time of day if they are so whacked, or wrong?

Beck, they have a problem with. He would never run for office though . That's good news.

I had a conversation this past weekend with a golfing buddy he's a huge Conservative, Dittohead, Beck fan. We were on the golf course and he asked me if I was going to vote for Sister Sarah if she ran and I told him, "winners never quit and quiters never win". He got so pissed off at me, it was a very quiet back nine.

I would imagine it depends on how Obama fares in the polls this year. (Right or wrong, this year's election will most likely be framed as a referendum on him.) If the Dems do okay, or only lose a minimum of Congressional seats, I'm guessing the Republicans will assume 2012 is a lock for Obama and throw Palin to the wolves. If not, however, (and they still have another year and a half to really figure out who they'll throw their money behind) I'm guessing someone like John Thune may become more of a realistic candidate.

The Republicans aren't stupid. (Or at least I'd like to think so, since I'm always a fan of a good game.) Palin rallied the base and most likely kept the 2008 race closer than it should have been, but she did not cross over into the larger public consciousness in a positive way. And if the 2008 race tells us anything, it's that you can rally the base all you want, but unless you are able to rally independent voters to your cause, as well as a couple of swing voters on the other side, you're lost.

Palin will be used to get the base out, and she'll be an effective attack dog for whatever candidate is nominated -- but she won't be it.

Tea Party is Blue collar hard working, normal everyday people like grandmothers, Fathers , maybe someone here mom and dad who want lower spending, and sign God Bless America, and fly the flag. They go to the corner bar, and vacation at Disney world. Yet, they are called racist, militants etc. It is comical .

It is also disresptful .. Many of these people fought for this Country . calling them Tea Baggers, while they think it is funny,it is the same as using the N-word. Which they will never do. They are way more tolerant than the far left.

So, everytime someone uses that term, you might as well being using the N-word, gay or lesibian slang, or other derogatory statement against people .

That's how it is viewed, and again, something they will never do It goes against the ones that say it. That's why they laugh when they hear it.

But, Sarah Palin does not represent the Republican Party, or the Tea Party. Nobody does.

Oh come on, I hope you're smarter than that... It's hilarious! She IS the punchline, the fact that conservatives took/ or take her seriously is downright funny.

I don't agree with this. This works on a personal level, but on larger levels like this it doesn't work. If you ignore the bully they'll leave you alone, but bullys don't have followers that believe them. I think we should try our hardest to inform the Beck followers, otherwise they'll drift off into the cult with him.

Now as far as "be Presidential and above it", I've rarely seen the President respond to Palin or Beck.

I agree with this , but she is a smart woman. She will have some say for sure. As you said, she is very effective and unafraid

This is complete BS and you should be smart enough to know it.

No one is calling anyone racist because they ask for lower spending or wear a USA t-shirt. That is just plain ridiculous.

There have been plenty of examples of racism displayed by the Tea Party, if you truly read this whole thread you would know that. They've framed this as a cultural war. Signs with nooses on them, "go back to Kenya", calling Obama a "white slave owner".

That's not racism?

Why did the rallies not start with Bush's spending? Why was the first Tea Party rally started on April 15th protesting Bush's TARP plan but not until Obama was in office? You don't think any of that had to do with the first black president being in office? I went to that first Tea Party, and I guarantee you race had a lot to do with it.

He can't respond to Beck. That is his Beck problem. His trying to stay way under that radar, but he can't. Major problem , but the tapes will be the end.


Palin he does sometimes, but that is my point. everyone is worrried or interested in her for some reason , and it isn't the people that would, or could support her. Its the people who would never vote for her. The other party... Makes it hard to understand the attention she gets. she doesnt get that attention from Republicans.

that is why it is so puzzling

I have to really question what you are doing here.

You say you're a conservative Democrat but you use the talking points directly from Hannity's mouth.

You lie and try really hard to spread conspiracy theories.

I mean you even go as far as saying Rahm Emanuel has announced his leaving, a lie that can easily be squashed with a simple Google search.

Why not just go big and tell us you're Bono and that gravity doesn't exist?
