…of what the media and the left actually thinks or her chances to win in 2012.
For months the MSM has gone with the meme that a Palin candidacy helps Obama and if she is nominated it guarantees the president a second term.
Every report, every signal, every single statement over and over again has attempted to reinforce this idea to the general public and to gullible establishment republicans.
As we get closer to the nominating process and the election actually takes shape I suspect we will be finding out just how much these people believe it.
As it is a given that these people support Obama over any republican, they will naturally want to play up Palin’s strength. If she guarantees a victory for Democrats the media would do all in their power to make sure that she is the nominee.
Gone will be the tabloid like coverage, gone will be the attempts to twist her into a joke, instead you will see the MSM subtlety encourage her candidacy and try to push her over the top to make sure that The One™ is guaranteed the second term they believe he so richly deserves.
At least that’s what they would do if they actually believed she was the joke they pretend she is.
When you see the attacks by the media intensify and the leftist blogs follow suit, you will discover what some of us already know; the left will tell you who they fear and they’ve feared Sarah Palin from the moment she was announced by John McCain.
Congress gave Netanyahu 29 standing ovations for a 40-minute speech, while Obama received 25 in a much longer State of the Union address. Obviously, with the rebuke floating in the Senate, the standing Os were more than just gracious hospitality. While Obama and his team committed one gaffe after another on his current junket, Netanyahu gave a tour de force performance that ended up making Obama look petty, radical, and unschooled. Democrats can’t abandon Obama quickly enough on his new peace initiative, which tells us all we need to know about who won this round.
No matter what the media tells you, no matter what Harry Reid tells you, the Democrats are afraid. How afraid? The white house is so worried about 2012 they found it necessary to beef up a rapid response team a year early, and the Democrats in congress are so afraid that they ran, led by Harry Reid, from the president on Israel like a bat out of hell. Cripes even Bill Clinton has figured it out:
The Fact is that Newt is right, the democrats are going to lose spectacularly.
Actions speak louder than words, and the democrats actions are those of a party that is afraid.
So my advice to republicans who are hedging their bets instead of fighting is the same it’s always been:
Ride Right Through them They’re Demoralized as hell!
This Saturday afternoon I’ll post on an example of this.
It’s doubtful that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in his wildest, most optimistic dreams, would have dared to imagine when he set off for the United States last week that Israelis would respond to his six-day trip so enthusiastically: According to a new Haaretz poll, they are giving the visit high marks, considering it an overwhelming success.
The poll, conducted by the Dialog organization, under the supervision of Prof. Camil Fuchs of the Tel Aviv University Statistics Department, showed that 47 percent of the Israeli public believes the U.S. trip was a success, while only 10 percent viewed it as a failure.
Considering the topic of the show you might think these actions against a successful woman like Laura Ingraham would warrant a mention particularly since it’s all about women knowing their worth in the business world.
Well it is now 8:52 they are in their 2nd to last batch of commercials and they have not only NOT mentioned it once, but they are still running the Ed Schultz Lean Forward commercials during the show.
At 8:55 they came back long enough to show a Conan clip, all that is left is the What Have we Learned Today bit.
I’ll tell you what we’ve learned, that Morning Joe is whatever else it is about today, is not about empowering women, it’s about covering MSNBC rear end.
I would call it journalistic malpractice, but I think its more like Journolist-tic practice.
Update: Think about it, the woman on Morning Joe felt so empowered that they dare not mention that a star of an MSNBC show was suspended for misogynistic remarks about a powerful woman!
