“The Most Accomplished and Respected”

This was interesting.  Another article focusing on Sarah Palin titled “Sarah Palin Is Smarter Than The Media Think,” Jon Friedman begins:

Sarah Palin is the most fascinating politician of her time. Sure, Barack Obama is the most accomplished and respected but news junkies can’t get enough of Palin, love or hate her.

His approval rating is slipping everyday.  We have record unemployment that is only climbing, record national debt that is only climbing and today we hear that North Korea is suspected in hacking many U.S. Government Web Sites as well as South Korean Web Sites.

“Accomplished and Respected” are in the eye of the beholder Mr. Friedman and please don’t ever forget it.

Was any article like that written about GW Bush in his first year?

  1. Steve,

    I know you are big fan of Sarah Palin. In my opinion she is finished with being an elected official. She might explore the idea of running for President in 2012. But, I don’t see her running for President in 2012.

    Even if she has designs on a continued political career, much can happen between now and the next Presidential race.

    When I saw Obama give the keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic Convention, I saw a man who might try for the Oval Office in 8 years. But, I never guessed he’d only wait 4 years let alone win. I figured he wanted to gain more experience in DC before making a run for the White House. I was wrong.

    So, who knows who will rise up in the Republican ranks? I am impressed with Bobby Jindal and Tim Pawlenty. This doesn’t mean either man has a chance at winning in 2012. But Palin isn’t the lone star in the party.

    Much will happen in the next 3.5 years. I can’t wait to see how it goes.

  2. John,

    My mind is absolutely open to any new star in the GOP. This is precisely why I am a big fan of Sarah Palin and why it’s important for us to keep a strong eye on the mischaracterizations of her.

    Let’s pretend I am all alone here….and I might be as Robert as implied. I am the only person who thought Sarah Palin was the biggest star and brightest prospect for our party (which I believe).

    Then let’s pretend that Pawlenty or Jindal become the star – or even Mitt Romney for a second try – or when Philip was excited about Fred Thompson last year. It doesn’t matter who the big star is because the media will savage them up just as they did with Palin. I am sorry, in my opinion, objective evidence leads me to support Palin because of the doors she’s knocked down.

    I am also sorry to say that Sarah Palin is just now way too big for Alaska. Even though she had that bumbling old guy weighing her down in 2008, she crossed over to mass popularity. Containing her and allowing only the people of Alaska to benefit from her intrinsic qualities to be fair and delegate responsibly is not in the overall best interest of the country now.

    If she doesn’t run in 2012, perhaps she’ll get a great show on Fox News. Perhaps she’ll bet on the EIB network….but this country needs her now and whatever path she chooses, she can now take her power and develop an unbreakable following.

    The press and liberals will still attack but without the official title of “Governor,” they won’t be able to do it at the taxpayer’s expense anymore.

    Ann Coulter wrote a hilarious column this week called “Forgetting Sarah Palin” released last night…in it, she illustrates a hilarious liberal conversation which all should read:

    “Sarah Palin has deeply disappointed her enemies. People who hate her guts feel she’s really let them down by resigning.

    She’s like the ex-girlfriend they’re SO over, never want to see again, have already forgotten about — really, it’s O-ver — but they just can’t stop talking about her.

    Liberal: Ha, ha … Sarah who? She’s over, she’s toast, a future Trivial Pursuit answer, nothing more.

    Normal person: Whatever. How about the North Korean missiles?

    Liberal: Can you believe she just resigned the governorship like that? What a quitter!

    Normal person: Speaking of quitting, how’s work?

    Liberal: Did you hear she might get a TV show? There’s no way Sarah Palin’s getting a TV show! No way! I can’t believe stupid Sarah Palin could get her own stupid TV show now. Well, I’m sure not gonna watch it — that’s for sure!

    Normal person: Have you seen all the Michael Jackson coverage on TV?

    Liberal: How does she think she can run for president in 2012 if she can’t finish her term as governor of a Podunk state? She’s finished.

    Normal person: OK, then! You won’t have to vote for her.

    Liberal: I was never going to vote for her! But now I’m not going to vote for her twice. And I will never watch her TV show. I am so over her.”

    The idea is to get a candidate with enough zeal that can get liberals in a spin. In that spin, they will have a few successful runs convincing others of what they want believed about Sarah Palin (or whomever the star of the GOP is including Jindal or Pawlenty) as they did with Reagan.

    But fortunately, after four years of Obama (like four years of Carter), Americans will utterly reject any message from any liberal about anything.

  3. Steve:

    You are right the liberals are handling Sarah Palin like an ex girlfriend they claim they are over.

    I know among my liberal friends they hate her for a reason they’ll never admit: she like they come from similar circumstances but unlike my friends, she was elected Governor of a state and name the VP nominee. They resent her success and make my liberal friends feel inadequate.

  4. I can’t get past calling Obama “accomplished.” Aside from being elected the first black President, what exactly makes him so accomplished? What has he done to prove himself?

    Oh, yeah, that’s right…NOTHING.

  5. “I can’t get past calling Obama “accomplished.” Aside from being elected the first black President, what exactly makes him so accomplished? What has he done to prove himself?

    Oh, yeah, that’s right…NOTHING.”

    Well…he was a Community Organizer, whatever that is.

  6. “Well…he was a Community Organizer, whatever that is.”

    Fantastic. He knows how to get people out to vote for him. What’s he gonna do now that he’s in? Does he have any clue?

    By what we’ve seen so far, I still don’t think he knows what he’s doing. He’s flying by the seat of his pants.

  7. “By what we’ve seen so far, I still don’t think he knows what he’s doing. He’s flying by the seat of his pants.”

    Are those J. Crew pants or did William Ayers lend him a pair of pants? You need special pants to hide bomb parts.

    I am sure Obama will get around to dealing with North Korea once he finds it on the map.
