Your last sentence is why she won’t get the nomination. You said it, I didn’t. If you would cut that crap out, she might have a chance. I don’t see Palin as many of you do. I have my own theory about her and I believe her to be far tougher than you folks do, in a way. She is very ambitious and enjoys the limelight. Otherwise she would have disappeared by now.
She isn’t gnashing her teeth and pulling her out out over any criticism from anyone.
How is she transformational, other than she is a republican female?
She resigned from office when many politicians would have bitterly clung on to it and continued leeching off the taxpayers.
She doesn't attack other Republicans. She is attacking the true enemy, the Obama regime, Democrats, and the liberal media.
As an executive, she gets things done. She is an outside the box thinker. She's not going to create a blue-ribbon commission or pass the buck to another department. I guarantee you if she is elected President, she will do a top to bottom review of all federal departments and agencies and abolish the ones that are obsolete or duplicate another one.
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN THE PAST FEW YEARS? Have you seen the impact she's made, not just in shaping the political landscape, but the cultural impact she's mad as well? All the "inane" statements that you Palin bashers make fun of--things like "death panels," do you know how much of an impact they had on shaping public discourse?
She's more than just someone who wants to criticize and do an overhaul of the failed Bush-era and Obama-Marx policies. Any ole Republican will say those things. And quite frankly, I don't plan on voting for Palin thinking she actually indeed will "fix" everything. No one person can do that.
Palin is transformational, not becuase she's a woman! Though that's part of it don't get me wrong...but I assure you: Meg Whitman, Condi Rice, Fiorina, Jan Brewer, or Kay Bailey Hutchison, or even as I said earlier, Bachmann or Haley, would NEVER have stirred up as much fear and reactionary responses as Palin has...There is something about Palin that is definitely harder to articulate...
Part of it may be a certain kind of charisma that all the other women just simply lack.
But it's more than that.
There's a big-mindedness and depth to Palin--something in the gut, that makes her more of a global and historical mover and shaker than your average politico. There's something about Palin, which strikes a chord with people because she touches on things that are so core and fundamental.
Maybe because she exudes a faith in God that is not your average kind of "Sunday church attendance" sort of faith, she has a sense of mission and calling that far exceeds the mere political ambitions of most normal contenders.
As I said, it's hard to explain. But what she stands for, what she says, why she scares people --> it's "visceral" not just political.
