Steve Schmidt: There is never
a good time for Sarah Palin

The Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:noproblems, 3/3/2013 11:05:30 AM

Republican strategist Steve Schmidt, the former campaign adviser to 2008 Republican presidential nominee John McCain, has repeatedly argued that the Republican Party should be more inclusive — of almost everyone, it seems, except Sarah Palin.

Comments:
I cant think of a better example of how the establishment has damaged the Republican Party then how they treat Sarah Palin. They tried to do the same thing to Reagan but were not successful.

If he´s a strategist, where are his electoral victories?

He´s certainly no Republican.

Steve Schmidt was an unknown name until the 2008 campaign - now he´s all over like flies on garbage. Still can´t figure out why his opinion is worth my time - he certainly didn´t do his candidate/employer any good. And he´s a sore loser/finger pointer to boot...

#13 - I don´t think you´re in the minority but you´d hardly know the way Pravda and Izvestia tell it. I´m finally wondering whether a third party might be necessary so that maybe 10 years from now we can again have a government that guarantees liberty and deals honestly with its citizens.

The Republican Party establishment did a lot to damage Sarah Palin. Others they have damaged are Michelle Bachmann, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Ted Cruz, to name a few...and now they´re going after Marco Rubio.

They don´t like change. They LIKE things the way Obama is running them....money just pours in and they can stick their hand out and snag some along the way.

Karl Rove Must Go. NOW.

According to Bill Maher, Sarah Palin is inconsequential, unimportant, trivial, petty and negligible. Yet he and his pundit-panel of low-info poseurs, including “Republican Strategist” Steve Schmidt, when they’re not busy stocking up on adult diapers, just can’t seem to stop talking about her.

At one time, Sarah Palin was as popular and exciting as Dr. Ben Carson is today.

Like Dr. Carson, Sarah gave exciting, charismatic speeches that dared to tell the truth in interesting, sometimes humorous ways -- such as her not-very-flattering depiction of Barack Obama as a Community Organizer.

But then Sarah allowed herself to be toned down by people like Steven Schmidt, even at a time when the McCain/Palin ticket was winning in the polls...and then the newly boring ticket receded and lost.

Today, Sarah´s influence seems to have been taken as a warning by politicians to never, ever say anything interesting.

In fact, Obama has made an artform out of dullness, which was why after his recent inaugural address the most memorable news item was the fact that Beyonce had lip-synched her song at the ceremony. Then soon after, Marco Rubio followed suit by giving such a dull post-State-of-the-Union-address response that the most memorable moment was when he stopped to take a drink of water.

The question is, will Dr. Ben Carson, if he decides to run for the presidency in 2016, also allow himself to be lobotomized by the Steven Schmidts of the Republican party and lose, or will he remain outspoken and charismatic and win?

We need to get rid of this guy and people like Karl Rove. Rover gave us Arlen Spector, John McCain and Romney. This kind of thing has practically ruined the Republican Party. My wife and I will not voter in the 2016 election. The whole system is broken.

God bless Sarah Palin, who speaks for middle America, for the voiceless children, for the Constitution and me. We talk differently, we dress differently, but we care about the same things. Go Sarah and don´t let these people, who think they are on the side of elite thinking, to ever get to you.

There will never be room for a Sarah Palin or any other "true" conservative in the current RINO party. The ones that do make it to high office are kept on a short leash. One thing is certain. They will definitely be kept out of the White House.

Face it, our government is ran by a two party system with very little difference at the higher echelon. Each take their turn at raiding the country of its treasure. i.e. Don´t believe that both sides don´t support much of what Obama is doing.

Sarah has been very instrumental in all of the congressional elections she has supported. Did she get them all elected ? But you name another person whose mere endorsement has made such a difference in the election of their party. Just ask Ted Cruz and a host of others. Wonder how much Bill Maher´s endorsement would even help a communist that he might support.

This is exactly the kind of trash the GOP needs to remove from itself if it´s ever going to win again. Palin was the only possible candidate who could´ve gotten everyone fired up enough against His Majesty to dethrone him. I´m still thinking she decided not to run because of all the resistance from within the party, not from without. What a shame.

The only problem with Sarah Palin was that she just wasn´t strong enough to drag that worthless RINO McCain´s carcus across the finish line all by herself.

Very few of those voting for the McCain-Palin ticket were enthusiastically voting for McCain.

Schmidt´s rhetoric about Gov.Sarah Palin exemplifies the GOP´s major problem which is repeatedly allowing the dems´ lsm to falsley define targeted accomplished & merited conservative Republicans and thus, OUTRAGEOUSLY painting the entire party with demonstrably gross lies. ...Why would Rpublican, ´´strategists,´´ keep banging the dems´ own shameless drum for them when the result but elects radical lefty dems?!

Pres. Reagan conquered that nagging bogus obstacle and he proved to be one of America´s greatest Presidents. He kept his oath of office! Other such potentials´ political possibilities have been de-railed, NOT because they were not qualified but apparently BECAUSE THEY WERE!

Schmidt and the rest of the GOP, ´´strategists,´´ should also note that when they seek to marginalize conservatives, conservatives marginalize the GOP.

Sidebar: C-Span 2 is interviewing historian Larry Schweikart about American Presidents & history right now & he is excellent! Hopefully Schmidt & his, ´strategist,´´ buds will check Amazon & get a clue from reading Schweikart´s factual books on American history and what it takes to be a great American President. During the past 40 years, the lsm/hollyweird/alphabets & tenured history revisionists have done much damage to this country with their distortions & lies. Time to base the record upon the facts rather than PC propaganda!

Remember te last fiscal crisis? Boehner removed TPers from committees per a request from Obama to kill off the TPers. Now Reich is writing about the TPers doing what the Marxists have done... infitrating the gov´t to destroy it.

GOP leadership is either part of the Progressive Problem ike McCain or folding to their demands like Boehner.

If we can´t remake the GOP with Rubio, Cruz, Bachmann, West, Palin & Paul.... We should consider a new party.

When a Republican fund raiser calls just mention that the party will not get another nickle until the Roves, Kristols, Schmidts etc. are told that their philosophy doesn´t work and their time is up. I got into an argument with a fund raiser who was convinced that it was Romney´s fault that we now have BO. Never mind that we refused to attack the Bimbo in the White House on his record and credentials.

I guess this is the same Steve Schmidt, of whom I wrote after the 2008 election that
" Whoever sent that poor old man ( McCain)out there four or five times a day to give the same tired campaign speech should be hanged, shot, burned, poisoned and scourged and his remains spread into the wind" or words to that effect.

He should not mess with Sarah. I have spoken... again. Please make me have to say this again. I will be glad to.

CAIRO - The Arab Spring was supposed to bring freedom to Egypt. Instead, concern is growing inside and outside the country that an illiberal wind is blowing the transition from autocracy off course. Arrest warrants issued by the prosecutor general against activists and a comedian accused of insulting President Mohamed Mursi have hardened opposition fears of a crackdown on dissent by the Muslim Brotherhood-led authorities. In parliament, Islamist lawmakers are debating draft laws seen by liberals as a threat to civil society and the right to demonstrate - vital elements of a modern democracy.

Newtown killer Adam Lanza may have launched his murder spree at Sandy Hook Elementary School as an “act of revenge,” the Daily News has learned. A close friend of Lanza’s mother told The News that the troubled boy was a target of relentless bullying when he attended the Connecticut school years ago. “I think Adam felt betrayed by the school and this was his act of revenge,” said Marvin LaFontaine, a friend of Nancy Lanza’s. “Nancy told me he was being picked on at school. That they were just torturing him.”

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
