The Democratic Strategy On Attacking Sarah Palin

If you want to know what the Democrats are going to do to continue to take down Sarah Palin, listen to the following exchange on Fox News. Democratic mouthpiece and Forbes editor Quentin Hardy (why doesn't Steve get rid of him), in his shrill, breathless way (all that was missing was some frothing), shows us what is in store for Sarah Palin.

The topic is Sarah Palin's speech in Hong Kong and her call for tax cuts.

Quentin is asked about it and ignores the question - instead he attacks Alaska - calling it "a welfare state" - and attacks Sarah Palin - calling her a "quitter" and a liar.



Listen to him continue to heckle and interrupt as others speak. And then Quentin makes a cheap sexual joke at the expense of Bill Clinton and Sarah Palin by saying that Clinton "would consider her a candidate for something." Wink, wink. That was completely inappropriate and exposes a real misogyny in many of the attacks.

If Sarah Palin is to run for President, she has to get ready for these personal attacks.

It has never really mattered what policy she promotes. The attacks on her from the Democrats have all been personal. Normally the media would play the role of referee and chastise the Democrats. But in this case the media has been a willing participant.

The reason why they can get away with it for now is Sarah is not running for President and the swing voters are not paying attention to these vicious attacks. If she actually declares for POTUS, then people will start to pay attention to the attackers and they will NOT tolerate this kind of personal crap.

This attack is just noise; these accusations are passe; yesterday, settled - there is nothing else these liberals can say, so they are just seething and wildely attacking.

Quinten disparaged himself in his zeal to hurt Sarah Palin, this is a good thing.

Come 2012 Palin will have 3 years of solid op/eds, speeches, and her accomplishments as governor to run on, and all the dems will have to fight her with is old lies and smears left over from 2008. 0bama will find it hard to defend his failed policies and the massive debt he has imposed on the country, old lies aren't going to cut it.

Yes ... Alaska is a welfare state.

A STATE THAT ACTUALLY WORKS AND THINK WAYS FOR THE GREATER WELFARE OF ALASKANS.

NO STATE INCOME TAXES FOR THE PEOPLE.

ALASKAN GOVERNMENT HAS TO WORK AND UTILIZE ITS LEGAL RESOURCES (ALASKAN OIL AND GAS, ETC.a) TO FINANCE ITS OPERATION, AND MUST WORK DOUBLE TIME TO CREATE INCOME TO BE RETURNED BACK TO PEOPLE.

THAT'S THE OPPOSITE OF MAOIST, MARXIST PRINCIPLE OF THE GOVERNMENT.

ALASKA IS THE LIBERTARIAN DREAM LAND FOR CONSERVATIVE PEOPLE.

10 Thoughts on Incivility in America

How long will America tolerate hate and rudeness in our public dialogue?

Incivility takes on many forms. It can be found in the gestures of a stranger amidst the morning commute, in a stolen moment at a music awards ceremony or on the lips of a Congressman on Capitol Hill. Is it possible to heal the character of America? The following are 10 thoughts on incivility in America:

1. Where there is no demand there will be a reduced supply.

2. One breaks the cycle of rudeness when one focuses on others rather than one's self.

3. It is possible to make clear one's position without seeking to destroy or defame another.

4. With public notoriety there should come responsibility and accountability.

5. Reclaim the art of listening and you will foster understanding.

6. We should seek to win over our opponent and at the very least gain his respect for the dignity with which we speak our convictions.

7. We should do what is right not because we seek self benefit but because we stand on high moral ground.

8. Respect for others begins with self respect.

9. "I’ve seen too much hate to want to hate, myself." -- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

10. In denouncing the rude and vile we join our collective voices to reclaim civility in America.

Civility goes beyond public apologies after the damage is done. It must emanate, not from polls and focus groups but rather from character and honor. Good people will sincerely disagree and the issues that divide us by their very nature impassion us.

The question is: How long will America tolerate hate and rudeness in our public dialogue? Perhaps the scriptures identify the need of the hour in the simplest of terms: “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” (Matthew 7:12)

Anonymous, your chronology of the events is wrong. I'm not suprised.

Missouri, Congressman Russ Carnahan attacks Governor Sarah Palin:
“There’s no way you can dress up that record, even with a lot of lipstick.”

Then later that same day Barack Obama mimics Carnahan with his own malicious connotation.
“You can put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig.”

October 05, 2008

Sarah Palin today accused Democrat Barack Obama of "palling around with terrorists" because of his association with a former 1960s radical, William Ayers.

Anonymous you’re wrong; as usual.
Obama ‘dished it out’ – Sarah Palin simply ‘served it’ right back to him.

Funny thing?
The lipstick comment is history but the Ayers accusation is alive a growing, you're a perfect example; you can't let it go.

Michael April said...

Wow!!!

I went to Barnes & Nobles to place my order for 'Going Rogue' -they told me there is a prerelease - order list of between a million and two million books already.

OK Sarah!!

HMMM. I GUESS YOU'RE RIGHT. TALKING ABOUT LIPSTICK ON A PIG IS ABOUT THE SAME AS CALLING SOMEONE A TERRORIST---AND STIRRING UP THE YAHOOS TO WANT TO SHOOT OBAMA.
