Joe Scarborough calls Sarah Palin out

Last week Sarah Palin made some disparaging remarks about fellow Republicans. She diminished the legacy of Ronald Reagan by saying he made movies like “Bedtime with Bonzo”. Whereas, this was factually correct this was way before he truly carved out his professional political resume. She also refered to the first President Bush and his family as “bluebloods.” This reference was made after Barbara Bush advised the former governor to stay in Alaska. Most Republicans are afraid of Palin and fear that any criticsm of her will alienate her base, but finally someone had the nerve to stand up  and called her out.  MSNBC Joe Scarborough wrote an excellent piece for Politico this morning. Tell me what you think.

    Sarah Palin may be casting herself as the LeBron James of the party. The limelight is a narrow beam, and the competition for it is fierce. She needs to be careful about building her image and influence without diminishing others. I like to channel Teddy Roosevelt AND Ronald Reagan when I shape my views and values, as both are extremely relevant. One can build a base and a consensus without destroying the rest of your team and support. I hope she learns that. As far as Joe’s column, he repeatedly castigated her for being a “half-term” governor and having a reality show. Obama also didn’t finish a full term as Senator of Illinois. Why doesn’t he mention that when he talks about “The One”? Social media will play a BIG part of politics going forward. I think it hurt McCain and the Republican Party in 2008 for not being better at using it. That’s a lesson learned by Sarah. Let’s see how it plays out before we bash someone for utilizing it.

    She is the 1/2 term governor. Scarborough didn’t lie. You make the point that Obama did not finish his term. Well Obama is not the subject of this artcle palin is, and Scarborough is highlighting her faults not the president’s, and let us also remember Scarborough is a Republican.

      Obama didnt finish his term…shouldn’t he be held to a higher standard (he has also proven not to have the political experience to be successful…i.e. the Start Treaty ending ONE YEAR AGO and now he notes it’s important, and his inability to take a leadership standpoint on tax cuts – remember the “wealthy” create the jobs the the purveior of this blog is looking for)?

      Also, please comment on the untruthful ethics allegations brought against Palin that were dropped within weeks of being brought upon her.

      I’m not a fan of her – I hope Mitt Romney wins the Rep. primary, but still….being the resident conservative shouldn’t you note the falacies FOR and against palin?
