  • Stay Alert..(Those promoting Sarah Palin as RNC chair may not have good motives)

    07/07/2010 8:34:55 PM PDT · by se_ohio_young_conservative · 184 replies
    Stay alert to those who are promoting the idea of Sarah Palin to replace Michael Steele at the RNC. This is an attempt to derail her nomination for the Presidency. There are some out there in the conservative blogosphere that believe the MSM line on Sarah Palin. When they promote the idea of her replacing Steele, they are really saying that she shouldn't run for President. We may need to hit the nail hard with the strongest hammer we can find. Stuff her down their throats. But we are going to get her the nomination. She deserves the nomination. And...

    It is good to criticize fanaticism, esp. BLIND fanaticism, but be equally weary of the fanatical Palin haters that parade around this site. Regardless of how some mask their true wishes for Palin in "constructive critic" guise, there are plenty of writers and thinkers out there who offer honest critique of Palin while having her and our country's best interests in mind and therefore want her to come out WINNING. Most of the FR trolls who post the latest Palin hit-piece of the day could care less for Palin and take joy everytime she supposedly "falls." To these types, Palin...
  • Lets get something straight, Sarah Palin did NOT "quit"

    06/08/2010 5:34:13 PM PDT · by se_ohio_young_conservative · 579 replies · 815+ views
    She was FORCED out for financial reasons. If anyone tells you she quit let them know otherwise. Her legal fee had accumulated higher than 500K. Her personal income was JUST OVER 100K a year. Financially her family was going under quickly. And they were filing another ethics complaint everytime she left the state. She was afraid to give interviews in the governors office. She was afraid to allow anyone other than staff in the Governors office after the TaserGate ordeal. They were destroying her. So, what were her options ? She tried to set up a legal defense fund. At...
  • We have to stop anti Palin Republicans. (Just don't vote for them)

    I don't know what it is going to take to clean the elitists and the sexists out of our party. But I have a pretty good litmus test. Sarah Palin. Odds are if you see a Republican trashing her or keeping their distance from her, they are really bad news. We need to make sure every candidate in any upcoming primary is on the right side of this. Those who dislike Sarah Palin tend to either support abortion, hate evangelicals or they have a problem with a female President. There are very few in betweens. We have to clean the...
  • Palin and the General (Putting the McCain Endorsement in Perspective)

    I cannot tell how much of this outrage about Sarah Palin's endorsement of McCain is feigned by those who do not wish her well. It is not principally to those folks that this post is directed. To those conservatives who are genuinely disappointed by Sarah Palin's decision to support McCain, let me say that I think Rush and Mark Levin understand it and have said that it is a question of loyalty and that loyalty is a virtue. That makes sense to me and, personally, I would be a little put off if she did otherwise, since it would look...

    Now that we sit her in incredulity as Doug Hoffman wanders off into the sunset, maybe it's a good time to take a moment and think about what just happened. Modern politics is not won with torches and pitchforks from half way across the country which is what was attempted here. No, Scozzafava should never have been handed the nomination but it was an isolated, freakish situation brought on by the sudden departure of the incumbent and exasperated by everyday political insider dealing. To claim that it was an example of how GOP politics work everyday is hyperbole by those...

    Wondering how all the anti-Republican "I'm not gonna vote for McCain" folks think about about what they got? What do these same . . . true believers . . . believe is in store for us during the mid-term elections?
  • McCain Derangement Syndrome

    There has been much talk of the 8 year BDS (Bush Derangement Syndrome) from the left but I think it's time we admitted there are DS's on the right and we have to look no further than our own backyard here at FR to find the most glaring example, McCain Derangement Syndrome. McCain wasn't my preferred candidate. In fact, I'd have to go all the way back to Reagan to find my own preferred candidate victorious. But you never get everything you want in politics so many times you have to work with you got and make the best of...
