Sarah Palin For President

This last go around Michael Reagan said something that I --- at the time -- reluctantly agreed with. He said that Republicans are looking around for his father. The younger Reagan said that someone like his Dad only comes around once in a lifetime. And certainly there was nobody remotely like the Gipper in 2008 Republican primary.

Well, as hardly needs to be pointed out, we settled for John McCain with a whimper. We let the media pick our candidate. McCain really wanted to pick Senator Joe Lieberman for Veep, but that would not have helped him with the base of the Republican Party. McCain used his VP choice to extend an olive branch to us real Republicans with his now historic choice of the Reaganeque governor of Alaska.


Michael Reagan was wrong. I don't know how the old man did it, but Ronald Reagan was back -- and in high heels!

McCain's choice of Governor Sarah Palin was not just a game-changer; it was a stroke of genius. Dishearted Republicans like myself were so disillusioned with the wishy-washy McCain that we were actually considering voting for Hillary Clinton if she won the nomination of her party. Ann Coulter even endorsed her with some surprisingly strong reasons. Overnight real Republicans were suddenly genuinely enthusiastic for the McCain ticket. Palin is the reason why.

With Sarah Palin in the number two spot, real Republicans did not hesitate for a moment to cheerfully hop aboard the "Straight Talk Express". Had it not been for the energy Palin supplied, McCain would have lost by a lot more than he did.

In every way that is important, Sarah Palin IS RONALD REAGAN. There are others that have more experience, who are more eloquent with turn of phrase, or who you can argue deserve the nomination more by virtue of having toiled in the fields for so many years. But we did that in 1996 and Bob Dole lost; didn't' he?

Palin has her detractors and notably those detractors were Ronald Reagan's detractors as well. Almost every criticism of either Reagan or Palin are interchangeable. "to inexperienced", "dangerous", "not one of us", "to conservative to be elected".

Palin is the whole package. I can't tell you just exactly what it is, but Reagan and Sarah Palin both had/have it. There are so many parallels between Reagan and Palin that makes her ascendancy almost dare I say ..."inevitable"?

So far the media-liberals and the Democrats have recognised who Palin really is better than Republicans. Media-Liberals recognise Palin as the number one threat to Obama and his (and their) agenda. The media-liberals are not going to let her push Obama out of Pennsylvania Avenue 'after they have worked so hard to get him there.'

Expect stepped-up attacks.

If the Republican Congressional landslide in 1994 was Reagan II, than Palin's presidency is Reagan III.

Mark my words -- Sarah Palin will be the 44th President of the United States of America.

Hey little brother! Hope things are going well with you. I like and admire Sarah Palin but I don't see her as another Ronald Reagan. She doesn't need to be another Reagan. She's doing a terrific job ticking off the libtards just by being herself. That's her true strength, not being "another Reagan". Let Sarah Palin be Sarah Palin. She's great at it!

I profoundly disagree.

I lived through the 80's, I was almost old enough to vote for him in 1984 (and I did in our class mock election) and I served under Reagan in the Navy, and I see that same spark.

They are cut from the same cloth.

If you find a better Reagan, let me know who that is.

Little brother, I support Sarah Palin. I'm a Palinista. I just don't the she's another Reagan.

As far as I'm concerned, Reagan was a once in a lifetime thing. Looking for another Reagan is like looking for another Michael Jackson. It would be great if one came along, but we shouldn't hold our breath waiting for one. Instead, we should rally around the promising leaders of our time. Sarah Palin is at the top of the list, yes, but she's no Reagan. That would be like saying Usher is MJ.
