Palin blames Bush policies for GOP defeat

WASILLA, Alaska (AP) – Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, amid speculation she’ll run for president in four years, blamed Bush administration policies for the defeat last week of the GOP ticket and prayed she wouldn’t miss “an open door” for her next political opportunity.

“I’m like, OK, God, if there is an open door for me somewhere, this is what I always pray, I’m like, don’t let me miss the open door,” Palin said in an interview with Fox News on Monday. “And if there is an open door in ’12 or four years later, and if it is something that is going to be good for my family, for my state, for my nation, an opportunity for me, then I’ll plow through that door.”

In a wide-ranging interview with Fox’s Greta Van Susteren, Palin says she neither wanted nor asked for the $150,000-plus wardrobe the Republican Party bankrolled, and thought the issue was an odd one at the end of the campaign, considering “what is going on in the world today.”

“I did not order the clothes. Did not ask for the clothes,” Palin said. “I would have been happy to have worn my own clothes from Day One. But that is kind of an odd issue, an odd campaign issue as things were wrapping up there as to who ordered what and who demanded what.”

The very 1st paragraph speaks VOLUMES concerning the defeat that the Republicans have suffered in the 2008 elections. Palin has hit a home run with that statement.

I could NOT bring myself to support McCain, even with Palin on the ticket, and it wasn’t because OF Palin, it was because I was afraid McCain would live through 2 terms in the White House and would do at least as much damage as Bush has done and Obama will do, and truly would be Bush all over again.

Many bloggers that I read, and several that I have great respect for, made their case saying that Obama WILL appoint liberal Justices for the SCOTUS as vacancies come available, and he likely will, but McCain was just as likely to have gone back to HIS liberal ways and done the exact same thing as Obama. McCain is NOT a conservative, he IS a RINO, and his past words and past performance have never given him a clearly distinguished line between his beliefs and those of most libbers.

Palin may have a great future in the Republican party, IF the RNC returns to some reasonable level of conservatism and gets as far away from the *Dem Lite* that they have become. Palin needs a bit of seasoning, more training and more study in WORLD matters before she can be a solid consideration, but her conservative credentials are NOT in question, and lets face it, she is, right now, more highly qualified to be POTUS than Barack Obama ever was.

The mid-terms of 2010 will be interesting, but the big one of 2012 will be an awesome occurrence, it is my express hope that the RNC can and will get it’s act together and take the GOP back to the level of conservatism that they enjoyed with Reagan. If they can’t get it together and do this, then it is my hope that WE, the Conservatives of this nation can take a 3rd party candidate to levels of success that is heretofore unheard of!!

And if that’s the case, people like Duncan Hunter, Sarah Palin, Bobby Jindal and Michael Steele can champion a new chapter in American political history as Conservatives take this nation back and return it to it’s proper place of importance in the grand scheme of world matters!

Or not…

  1. I think that the Republican Party is an old jumbo that took a 500 grain solid right between the eyes from a 470NE, and that Conservatives would be better off just starting a brand new party. Why bring all those coat tails along for the ride, only to have them drag you down at a later date. The people that you listed at the end would be a great nucleus to begin one with.

    Chuckie Scumner from NY already said it’s good to have the old John McCain back. I believe this statement was made when McCain said he would act as a liaison between Obama and Republicans in the Senate.

    I would look forward to seeing Palin on the ticket again. We need to stop promoting from the DC usual crowd and look to real Americans who live outside the beltway.
    Congress isn’t the place where we will find a candidate to believe in. They are all bought and sold by their third month in DC. We need strong conservtives with America first values.

  4. I missed her comment about this, Fred, so thanks for pointing it out. Her stake just went UP in my book despite her qualifications — which are, after all, MORE than Obama’s in any event.
