Too Late! Charles Krauthammer Finally Agrees With Governor Palin
C4P ^ | 1/27/2013 | Steve Flesher

Posted on 01/27/2013 6:55:31 PM PST by Kolath

I am thrilled that Governor Palin has left the constraints at Fox News. She’s one of the few to offer a better solution which works on combating the machine within the Republican Party as they continue to fail us as a country.

During her service on the network, she provided clear and honest analysis. It served as music to the ears of many within the grassroots who continue to appreciate her fearlessness. Even though she grew as a national advocate over the last three years, sadly the network and few of its other contributors seem to be falling by the wayside a little bit.

This is just one tidbit comparison that showcases her authenticity as a contributor.

Last week with Bill O’Reilly, Charles Krauthammer discussed the loss of 2012. While O’Reilly is continuing to obsess about changing demographics, Krauthammer finally told the truth:

Yep, we run the ONLY candidate that passed Obamacare, and Assault Weapons Ban, supported Illegals...and we expected him to beat a president that was IDENTICAL on those issues?

Sorry Oreilly, but millions of Hispanics didn’t just materialize between 2010 and 2012. They are a factor, but far, far, slower than the media wants us to believe (i.e., us to panic).

They want these weapons so they can shoot us when the collapse comes
and we are rioting in the streets. The fact that the Gov has been buying all these bullets and weapons should tell anyone with half a brain the Gov knows a collapse is coming as well. They are are preparing for it.
We had better as well.

I used to have a great deal of admiration for Krauthammer, but became disgusted with his treatment of Palin. He was just as bad as the rest of the media. Never once did he raise a legitimate issue about her abilities. I came to believe he is just a elitist like the rest of the media/pundit merry-go-round. So now I can't believe anything he says, it might be based on which was the wind is blowing. I wish I didn't feel this way.

Wasn’t going to comment, but head is spinning trying to figure out why we should care that Krauthammer is late agreeing with Governor Palin?

I believe only pundits, and the choir pay any attention to him.

So when is Krauthammmerr going to apologize to Palin and the Tea Party for treating them like flyover unwashed hicks?

IMHO, snotty Beltway pundits will never give Sarah Palin, her proper due, so I no longer give a rip about their opinions.

I don’t needs their lofty, Roget’s-laden opinions to make me feel good about mine.

The most annoying incident was when the Obamacare debate was first percolating and Palin was at the forefront with her widely-criticized “death panel” comment, Krauthammer condescendingly stated on tv that Palin “should leave the room,” and then directly following this, he basically repeated her EXACT same argument that she had written on her Facebook post.

I don’t necessarily dislike Krauthammer. He quite often has some good points to make. But that was such a jerky moment on his part. Smug, elitist.

“... millions of Hispanics didn’t just materialize between 2010 and 2012.”

The turnout for a presidential election always eclipses an off-year election. Black turnout was also higher, including both natve-born and immigrants from Africa.

There is no good reason for the GOP to cede the Hispanic vote to the Dems.

“There is no good reason for the GOP to cede the Hispanic vote to the Dems.”

It depends on the definition of cede. If “not ceding” is granting amnesty to 30,000,000 new voters that likely will lean Democrat, I’m not sure that’s in our best interest.

I was referring strictly to legitimate Hispanic voters. We already have a significant Hispanic population and have for a long time.

The way the debate has been framed, anti-illegal immigration has been cast successfully as racist/xenophobic, causing a significant % of perfectly legal Hispanics to look unfavorably on the GOP and conservatives. We have done a very poor job of contrasting legal from illegal.

I’ve been a Republican all these years for one reason and one reason only. It is the lesser of two evils in a two party nation . The Tea Party is not a political party. The GOP has to get its ‘stuff’ together, and soon.

It looks like Sarah Palin had the correct analyses after all. It was not what Fox news management or the establishment GOP wanted to hear. But it was the right stuff. The so called smart pundits come to the same conclusion after the fact. I am glad that Krauthammer saw the light atleast now, unlike the GOPe leadership and their consultants.

Not only did the liberal nominee of last year and his team alienate "Reagan democrats", they decided to alienate key segments of the Republican base and the tea party, all in the name of reaching out independents and moderates. They went out of their way to alienate libertarians, social conservatives, and tea party supporters. In the end they did not get enough people, even moderates and independents to win this thing.

Key takeaways from this loss- you try to bring along as much of your base as possible to the dance or you lose!! Don't alienate entire segments of the base, and push them outside the "big tent" to make room for others. Secondly, you bring them along by getting them excited about you, not by getting them to fear the alternative.

This is the same Hispano Racist BS spewed by the Liberal Media

Most of the push for Illegal Alien Amnesty is done by racist groups like La Raza (The Race), MEChA, LULAC, La Voz de Aztlan, and other extremists. Most Hispanics care less about Amnesty...and you will not win Hispanic votes by giving Amnesty to Illegals

You do not see the DNC trying to bring in White voters by pandering to the KKK....

I slightly disagree (first time ever ;))

Being that they are now parroting (or agreeing direct or indirect) her, maybe the truth is starting to sink in.

We can also use what they say along with her quotes (dated for comparison) to show how right she was ;)

Take care and let’s all keep up the good work ;)

She (Palin) has never stated any untrue situation (I was going to type in fact.. but that wouldn’t have made sense if it was a fact ;))..

It makes me sick, all of the PDS people that are still on FR.. I can accept a different opinion, but to constantly deny that she was, and has been correct.. and to continually disrespect her and claim she is stupid/nothing because of a Saturday Night Live skit that was made to make her look stupid?! Damn, are we all Conservatives, or not?! (That was a rhetorical question.. I see many here on this CONSERVATIVE site that are not Conservative, yet JimRob allows them to stick around.. a few previously zotted.. and a few that had written an Opus, but returned to spew more PDS crap).

I, and many others here have remained quiet (me, speaking every once in awhile, but keeping up daily on FR)..

Whether or not the PDSers want itor not, Palin speaks for all Conservatives.. she says what we believe is right, the reason the country was created fthe way it was.. to protect us ALL against a a tyrannical government. The government is supposed to hear what the people want, and then make the proper choice(s) to what must be done. (We employ them, through election (not fraudulent ones)... we are NOT their servants/slaves, they are there to serve us).

Was going to type more... but I am sure most, if all of you know what I mean..

The truth is that Sarah Palin is head and shoulders above all the Beltway prognosticators.

They will never acknowledge that someone they view as an Alaskan backwoods hick is actually smarter than they are.

Right now I only see a few conservative leaders—Palin,West, Cruz, Chaffetz, Gowdy. I wish Sessions of AL would get in the game more.

The one good thing about Palin is that she cannot be bought. That is why she scars the Beltway to death. When Obama continues to wreck the nation, Sarah’s star will continue to rise. She is our Esther.

Because we don’t have any representation in the GOP anymore.

Very well stated my FReind.

The fact of the Matter is that many of the PDS Haters here on FR are Republicans.

Not Conservatives.

Yes Sarah does speak for ALL Conservatives, she does NOT however speak for All Republicans.

The Sooner we understand that the GOP and Us are no longer on the same side the better.

Republicans want a more benevolent less hostile Federal Government.

We want less Government PERIOD.

Sarah has fought the corruption that has crippled us her whole career and that will make you some serious enemies.

Gowdy is Trey Gowdy of TN. A former prosecutor,he is terrific with Chaffetz of UT on Issa’s Government Oversight Committee in the House, not afraid to ask tough questions, especially about Benghazi.

The testimony in my tagline came from one of their sessions in October.

Had Hillary testified in front of Issa’s Committee, it would not have been the lovefest the Fairy Princess experienced last week.

“Frontrunner” Romney (his first name during the prijmaries ) never got over about 30%

But the GOP insisted on stuffing a candidate down our thoats that 70% of us DID NOT WANT.

We need to end open primaries and re-vote until someone gets over 50%

no more 5 conservatives and 1 RINO where the RINO wins with only 30% of the vote
