This sounds like someone that is looking for any reason not to vote for Palin. I'm not saying that you are but it sounds like an excuse I would hear from someone like that.
The GOP establishment that doesn't exist says you must declare your intention to run for President 1-1/2 years prior to the election otherwise some unspecified event will be triggered that may cause some subsequent event that may turn out to be bad. It's all very clear according to the "conservative" pundits on FOX, David Frum and George Will. It is written in stone and cannot be transgressed.
..assuming she won't
Bachman has earned more respect from me than Palin. Bachman is more professional, not easily angered by what is said about her, is much more camera friendly, highly intelligent, shows leadership qualities with a relaxed calmness which shows she is in control..much more than Palin who is fast becoming yesterday's news. Palin grabbed the limelight as much as she could, perhaps too much; innocent in assuming the party would run on forever--but I believe she and her family have paid the price of paticipatory celebritydom [and been paid handsomely for it]. Her future as a speaker or news contributor will remain; I am just disappointed she seemed to want to play games with those that are and have been very strong supporters.
Compare Palin to the participatory writer/journalist, George Plimpton, who once entered the NY marathon near the end of the race and crossed the finish line before the runners who had been giving their all, working through exhaustion, made their finish. Plimpton said later, he regretted the stunt for the obvious reasons.
Didn't say I will vote for Bachman..long time til that day; and I have said I would only keep my focus on a productive job environment platform [nothing more] from a true proven business leader with experience who has walked the walk and not just talked or taught the talk, not a politician--but Bachman can carry her own and could easily win in any intellectual debate against Obama.
I cannot wait til Obama has to debate WITHOUT TOTUS!!!
A lefty[family] said he hoped Obama would not run, that he should retire, has accomplished what he set out to do-- I said no such luck and laughed. The Left has already thrown in the towel.
My guess is Kraphammer LOVES Christie.
Christie goes berserk when ANYONE questions him or his policies.
He’s a bully and a thug.
I live in New Jersey - the Belly of the Beast - and I KNOW Christie is no conservative. He is farther to the left than ANY politician who has been named as a contender in 2012 OR 2008.
Next to him, Huntsman looks conservative,
Kraphammer is a closet lib. He’s only conservative about fiscal issues and some foreign policy issues.
Beautiful, Soon Christie will be sitting in there.
Rove loves Rinos.
