“Adds, “the field is what it is at this point,” and/but will not shut the door on a second VP bid.”

So she admits she isn’t ready for prime time.

Why did you omit that part?

Time magazine, like many other sources, must be excerpted and linked. You've been here since 2001 and don't know that?! It was a very short article to begin with. Why not go to a Romney thread and criticize him. Or is he your boy?

I'm disappointed. I figured you did a bit of research before popping off with crap like that.

I do not dislike her due to any of her purported policy statements.

Any crackhead could make the same statements and I would not disagree. With the statements.

Ok, so then you simply have a personality conflict with her? The fact that she has a solidly conservative record in office and espouses the very principles that FR and a solid majority (as shown in the prior 80+% site vote) is meaningless?

Based on a personality conflict you choose to trash a person whose conservative policies you agree with, even when that person has influence over the upcoming election?

Help me out here, because it sure seems, based on your anti-Palin posts, like you don’t want actual real life conservatives to succeed. Am I wrong? Please explain.

Btw, Fox News live now showing Santorum at his 350th Pizza Ranch event in Iowa — tying Huck’s record last cycle.

Congrats, Ricky! Have a slice ;)

Mostly correct.

The fact that she has a solidly conservative record in office

What was her record during the latter half of her term as Governor?

Based on a personality conflict you choose to trash a person whose conservative policies you agree with

Her policies?
Well, it works like this:
Candidates for office pay money for advertisements to reach ME.

When they expect ME to pay for the privilege of seeing movies or reading books.. they FAIL.

They convince me, I do not pay to be convinced.

even when that person has influence over the upcoming election?

She has influence? Only what you give her.

you don’t want actual real life conservatives to succeed

Succeed at winning offices? Surely. Which is she running for?

“Mostly correct.”

Good. We have established that it’s personal.

“What was her record during the latter half of her term as Governor?”

The one where the Democrats, supported in large part by so called Republicans and conservatives giving them ‘aid and comfort’ took the governing of Alaska to a dead halt, tried to break her financially and so on? I’d say that by stepping down and allowing the LG to take over to the benefit of Alaska’s voters, it was a good one.

“Her policies?
Well, it works like this:
Candidates for office pay money for advertisements to reach ME.”

Yup...

“When they expect ME to pay for the privilege of seeing movies or reading books.. they FAIL.”

And did Track and Todd hold a gun to your head demanding you purchase anything? Yes? No?

“They convince me, I do not pay to be convinced.”

Good for you. I haZ a happy.

“She has influence? Only what you give her.”

Isn’t that the way it works throughout politics? It seems that many people do give her that influence...based on her record and policy statements. Since you agree with her positions, It’s odd that you aren’t working to forward them as well. That it’s Palin stating them shouldn’t be a problem for anyone supporting the conservative cause. She’s a messenger, not the message.

“Succeed at winning offices? Surely. Which is she running for?”

I am unaware that she is, nor is that what we, or at least I, am talking about. She is working to elect actual conservatives and you are trashing her over a aelf-admitted personality conflict. That’s what we are talking about.

Gunner, I’ll spell it out for you and type slow so you get the finer points.

If I wanted to intellectually chop you up into hamburger, and I don’t, I’d be charged with cruelty to the less fortunate. You just aren’t half as witty, nor intelligent, as you think you are.

You came on a Palin thread with full blown PDS, I asked a question to get at your ‘problem’, you accused a woman you don’t even know of something disgusting, someone yanked your post and you are scrambling to shift the blame.

Had you not come to start trouble, there would be none.

Let it go.

I hope. If she won’t run for the big seat, she’ll do well in the VP spot. Then sit pretty for her own run, having 4-8 years of the ‘experience’ some claim she lacks.

Regardless, the guy that picks her as VP will likely get a good chunk of her supporters if that scenario happens.

Romney and Paul aside.
