Ward is a good choice.
This group seem fishy to me. I understand the anger over Fiorina, but to start using phrases like she is being destructive seems odd.
Sarah Palin was born in Idaho. If she endorses a solid conservative like Maj. Vaughn Ward in the state of her own birth -- is that really "interfering", or just expressing her legitimate opinion in favor of the Republican of her preference?
I mean, if Barack Obama weighed in on local elections in Kenya... well, never mind...
That’s lame to be upset over the McCain endorsement. I would lose respect for her if she didn’t endorse McCain. McCain elevated her to the national stage...it’s just basic decency that she show respect to him.
maybe counterproductive instead of destructive.
“...and will feature some “high-level Republican officials” flying in from north Idaho to attend, though he didn’t give names.”
That’s all you need to know about this. The GOP old boys against Sarah.
I wish she would be a little more circumspect with her endorsements and keep her eye on the national picture.
Leave it to republicans/conservatives to ear their own.
“its just basic decency that she show respect to him.”
I respectfully disagree. She showed him plenty of respect by being the only person involved in the 2008 campaign that was actually trying to win, including him.
She owes him nothing. His team picked her because they thought a woman would help them win. It was totally cynical, and they now even say they regret it.
His policies are destructive. She should NOT be endorsing them.
An eggs-in-one-basket man. Interesting. Maybe he forgot the old saying, "Satan and his demons can quote Scripture." (not equating SP to Satan or demons)
For Baumbach, an ardent Labrador supporter,
I would have said she was a dogged Labrador supporter...but, that’s me...
[i]I mean, if Barack Obama weighed in on local elections in Kenya... well, never mind...
As a matter of fact, he DID do that and Odinga won. And then promptly slaughtered a bunch of his opponents(reports that he cooked them in pots may have been exagerrated, however).
Yeah sounds like a plant. I think the Labrador camp is just upset. I was really pissed off. I’d never been so angry at Sarah before as when she went with Fiorina but hell I can’t stay angry at her for long. She is her own person and sometimes she is going to disappoint us but I’m sure she would never ever disappoint us as much as GW Bush, John McCain, or most of Congress. She has gotten most of her endorsements right in my estimation.
You are spot on in your comment!!!
Try W’s wife closet liberal!!!
This rally makes no sense.
I agree that we should reject the GOP “kingmaker” mentality, but Sarah has been very effective for the cause of liberty.
When you say “national picutre”, are you talking about her seeking office?
I personally hope she decides not to. She is perfect in the role she is in right now. Public office would reduce that.
We're drawing swords against each other over "McCain" for goodness sakes!
I support J.D., I hope he trounces McCain, I can't stand McCain, and just wish he would go off an join Arlen in retirement. But, to take this tact against PALIN just because she endorsed someone other than who they wanted, reeks of 'ulterior motives' and questionable sincerity.
