There are few people in American politics inspire more passion either pro or con than Sarah Palin. There is a myth about Sarah Palin.
The myth of Sarah Palin is that Palin is an idiot.
Is Palin an idiot?
HBO’s Movie “Game Change” would have you think so. That film could be considered an in-kind contribution to the Democrat party and they sure want people to believe , Palin is raving lunatic.
The Republican establishment is jumping on that bandwagon too. They would like everyone to believe she’s as dump as a box of rocks.
However, the myth of Sarah Palin being an idiot is just that, a myth.
So much so, that Sarah Palin just challenged Barack Obama to a debate. On her Facebook page, Palin said:
“Exhibit A in these diversionary tactics is an absurd new attack ad President Obama has released taking my comments out of context. I’m not running for any office, but I’m more than happy to accept the dubious honor of being Barack Obama’s “enemy of the week” if that includes the opportunity to debate him on the issues Americans are actually concerned about.”
Wow. Obama was just thrown a hanging curve ball, but don’t expect him to swing at it.
If Palin were really the idiot that the left believes she is, Obama would have jumped all over that offer. Think about this for a second. This would have been a great opportunity for Obama to boost himself and go after a major conservative figure. If Sarah Palin were really stupid, it would be a no brainer for him to take her up on her offer.
Palin’s offer to debate the issues would be great for Obama. It takes all of the attention away from the Republicans who are actually running for President.
So why doesn’t Obama take the bait?
It is very simple. Obama knows Sarah Palin is pretty smart and he also knows he is not the debater that a lot of people want to say that he is.
That is the great secret here. Unfortunately the media is never going to report this. The drive by media wants to continue the narrative that Palin is dumb.
I, for one, would pay good money to see Sarah Palin debate Barack Obama. It would be great entertainment and it would be fun to watch the myth of Barrack Obama’s “genius” destroyed on primetime TV by the smart and politically savvy former Governor of Alaska.
Game change? How about, “Game on!”
That's why they don't want Newt to go up against Obama. He would cream Obama. That's why dems are crossing over to vote for Santorum and really stir up the mix. They feel safe with Newt in third now. I haven't given up on Newt.... he can very well pull this off!
"The Undefeated" a documentary about Sarah Palin, shows the governor doing a great job in her official positions, from mayor of Wasilla to governor of Alaska. She is smart and spunky, and would wipe the floor with Obama in a debate.
How about a Newt and Sarah campaign!!!
Mitch "Truce" Daniels' wife wouldn't let him run, just as well, he is another Big Government establishment hack.
I would bet on palin.
I like that attitude. It's frustrating to see people calling themselves conservative and supporting the usual weanies in office.
Well said, David. She receives no support from Republicans. We need for the Tea Party to organize nationally, elect a chairman, become a third party named the Conservatives & run our own candidates in the future. It's hard to tell the difference between the "libs" & the "rinos". This country is 75% conservative as it is & we should take advantage of that fact. That's my opinion & I could be wrong but I don't think so.
Glad to see the posts about the movie getting bad ratings. My Liberal boyfriend said to me last night, as a preview came on tv for the movie "I heard that movie was good, it is fair." I just bit my lip and didn't say anything. He hates Palin, I'm so sure he thinks the movie is "fair."
You really need to dump that loser & find someone who is close to being as smart as you are. There was nothing "fair" about that movie. Did he bother to watch The Undefeated on Reelz last nite. That's the real Sarah Palin who is the greatest patriot in this country. How I wish she would have run this time. We would have buried the "Muslim prince".
Kristin: Your liberal boyfriend should be ex.
You better start now and hit him over the head and put a little sense into him...Force him to watch " The Undefeated" or else...LOL
You should protest his obvious hatred of women by not allowing him free-market access to goods and services.
