Sarah Palin – An American Quitter

October 22nd, 2009 . by TexasFred

Sarah Palin – An American Quitter

Sarah Palin was the *window dressing* for John McCain’s failed run at the presidency in 2008.

She QUIT as the Governor of Alaska at the end of July 2009.

One of the reasons she cited was the medias personal and political attacks on her, and she suggested that her quitting was ”the right path for Alaska.”

Palin continues to be touted as *The Future* for the GOP. It seems that many perceive her to be the star OF the GOP. I know that’s the impression I get. I also feel that if Palin is the answer for the GOP, if she is the best the GOP can do, we’re going to spend a LONG time living under the tyranny of Barack Hussein Obama and his evil minions.

All the *cutesy* Northwoods Barbie BS, the you betcha and by golly doggone it disgusting speech pattern aside, Palin is a proven QUITTER! That is a hard fact and an indisputable truth.

Sarah Palin RAN when the heat was turned up, ran AWAY, she could NOT handle the pressures of being Governor of Alaska and the criticisms of the media that came with it. Do ANY of you even remotely believe that the office of the President is any LESS stressful?

    Make NO mistake about it my friends, that woman SCARES me, and the GOP supporting HER scares me even more…

    Man, you are so right. I just do not get why people fawn over her.

    I tend to believe if she looked like Candy Crowley from CNN, nobody would even care.

    I think you know what I mean.

    She’s only popular because she’s a twat, with a pretty face.

    What REALLY Burns my boots, is the fact that people think she’s on par with Reagan.

    Ronald Reagan served in California as Governor from January 3, 1967 – January 7, 1975. Palin was in for, what? a year?

    How is she even close to Reagan?

    It is very disappointing that she is going on OPRAH to push her new book. I suppose selling books is more important than respect for one’s self.

    I am in a strange position, considering the fact that I actually like Sarah Palin. The main reason I like her is her position of pro-life. Having said that, I think she was a poor choice for McCain’s running mate and I do not think she would be a good President. The reasons TexasFred list are at the very top of the list of why I am of that opinion.

    For people to extol her virtues as the 2nd coming of Reagan bears no merit. She has accomplished very little and she will continue in that path until she stops acting like a “hockey mom” and starts learning about some of the issues.

    Just my opinion.

    Larry, I liked her a while back, when she was 1st starting out, but the persona changed drastically during the 2008 run and in all honesty, when she QUIT as Governor, she totally lost any and ALL respect I may have still had…

    If Sarah Palin is the answer, it MUST have been a pretty dumb question, that woman couldn’t shine Reagan’s boot!

    Andrew Jackson resigned his US Senate seat on October 14, 1825, after two years, seven months, and ten days in that six-year term. That’s a dozen days fewer than Sarah Palin served of her four-year term as Governor of Alaska.

    Jackson won the 1828 election for President. Not bad for a quitter.

    So Josh.. You’re saying that Palin is a lot like Andrew Jackson?

    Is she a bigamist or an adulterer?

    Just curious, because she no kind of statesman…

    You can sing Palin’s praises all you like on your Palin blog, but you see, the truth gets told here, and Palin is basically an idiot on matters of world affairs and U.S. government.

    And, she is a QUITTER…

    Fred think one of those who called Andy Jackson an adulterer was killed in a duel with him. Jackson did marry Rachel Robards in a small ceremony just north of where I live at the Springfield Plantation on the Natchez trace. Whether Jackson was a bigamist or an adulterer is a disputed subject with no clear cut answer, but what is true is that the two loved each other and she did live long enough to see Andy elected president, but died before moving into the White House. As for Sarah Palin, have no fear he will never reach the White House—those on the left is this country have destroyed her long before any possible run. And I for one will not cast the final stone.

    Did I say that? No, I didn’t. The point was about quitting her job, which she did because a circle of jerks being paid by the Democrats had filed over 20 bogus ethics complaints against her and members of her staff. This ground the executive branch of the state government to a virtual halt, was costing the taxpayers over $1 Million and ran her legal bills up over $600,000.

  11. comment number 11 by: TexasFred

    So, instead of standing her ground and fighting for her *good name*, she quit and ran away… Nothing says WORLD LEADER like running from a fight that you are supposedly RIGHT in…

    Good bye Josh… Go support Palin elsewhere…

    I heard a rumor that YOU were the guest of honor?!?! :P

    Back during the election when she was first introduced to the public, she was going to be ‘the one’ to save of the election and the GOP, everyone waited with baited breath for some kind of epiphany… that never happened.

    To this day, every time her name is mentioned I find I am still waiting for it.

    IMO, she is to republicans what Obama (though I still fail to see how) was to the demoncrats.. window dressing with nothing more to offer that is any good.

    Like Fred, I liked her in the beginning. What a mistake that was…

  15. comment number 15 by: minuteman26

    Palin, I believe, is a true conservative that can be a help to the cause by continuing to preach that gospal. That said I don’t think she would be a good fit as POTUS. Am a bit sexist here in that i don’t believe any woman should be elected to that office. Sorry if I offended some but I want someone with BALLS looking Putin in the eye. However we have come up short on the male end of the spectrum as of late. Women are too touchy/ feely to be Commander in Chief. If you look at 99% of the women elected to congress, all have been disasters.

    Strangely enough Fred, I have been in that old house and was a guest of honor at a wedding there some years ago. Not the one of Andy and Rachel, but the one of my sister and her husband. Wish I could have seen that grand old House in her hay day—-many say the Burr Conspiracy was first hatched there—who knows!

  17. comment number 17 by: TexasFred

    Minuteman26: BALLS indeed, and not a PMSing quitter that may or may not fall into full blown histrionics…

  18. comment number 18 by: dons_mind

    i’m on of those who like sarah palin also. i think she has a political future – but i don’t think it’s a Presidential future – at least not for a while. i hope those of you (especially the Texans) who are bemoaning Sarah’s ‘quitting’ as governor of Alaska remember that hatred when the quitter who is running for governor of Texas comes around for your vote – - yes, hutchison….and yes, she’s a quitter……..and should not by any stretch of the imagination be elected governor of the state…….

  19. comment number 19 by: TexasFred

    Don, you are seriously WRONG…

    Look, I detest Hutchison, but that old bat is retiring… She’s been in the Senate for far too long and presents a real case for term limits, she’s a lot of things, RINO being foremost, but she is NO quitter, and I am a bit surprised that you would say that… She has served since 1993…

    But you are right, she does NOT need to be Governor…

    Ya know, Palin didn’t serve 1 full term, and QUIT, Hutchison has been in the Senate since 1993, and Don, if this is all you have to bring, leave it alone man…

  20. comment number 20 by: HoosierArmyMom

    I really liked Palin in the beginning too. I still think like minuteman26, she could do much from a supportive position, but like TF, there is no job harder or more difficult on families than POTUS, so if she cracked under fire, I hardly think she’s the future of anything. Quitting her responsibility as Governor says volumes in my mind. “She’s no Reagan”, and I think Michelle Bachmann is the one who I admire and see myself supporting in the future. There are many out there who represent true Conservative values better than Palin, such as Mike Pence.

    Regardless of whether Palin made the right choice by stepping down I had already concluded she wasn’t “it” for the White House.

    The Senate? That’s another matter. Yeah Baby! I reckon Sarah could ROCK that old boys club. She’d own ‘em with her hair flips and quick quips and shake the place up by being politically incorrect.

    I was an enthusiastic Palin supporter from day one. Hey, my folks started out in Wasilla so I have some idea what those fisherman women are made of. I liked how she immediately cut across the grain with the elites and liked who she ticked off.

    As for her stepping down, I guess the political reality and future for her is based in the perception of her being a quitter. Whatever. None of us know what went on behind closed doors with her marriage and children. Not all of us have an Abigail Adams at home and can afford to risk those precious things by being gone (speaking as a former sailor). I reckon I’ll have to give account to my Maker for my committment to my marriage and children before I do for my service to my country.
