With so much coverage of Sarah Palin there is no reason for her to ever sit down and actually read a book. She has no incentive to buckle down and prepare for a run at the presidency because all of the coverage allows her to practice her rhetoric instead of research it. The article below gives us a better view on how Sarah Palin is really viewed by those who are supposed to be unbiased.
The number two is the myth that “Resigning as governor was rash.” “No one expected Palin’s resignation on July 3, 2009, just 2 1/2 years into her term.” “Her hastily composed and clumsily delivered farewell address left many observers confused about her motives.” “Some of her critics were only too eager to fill in the gaps with conjecture and hearsay (She’s being investigated by the FBI! Sarah and Todd must be headed for divorce!).” “If there was one thing everybody knew for sure, it was that Palin’s career in politics was over.” “But none of the rumored scandals ever broke.” “The Palin’s remain married.” “And as for Sarah Palin’s career, it’s taken off.” “She plays a far greater role in American public life than she did before she left office.” The next is “Palin is extreme.” “On many of the most important issues of the day, Palin holds positions that are squarely in the center-right of American political discourse.” “And many of those positions, not incidentally, are held by a large segment or even a majority of the public.” “For instance, neither the public nor Palin believes the stimulus worked.” “And while most Americans may not share Palin’s views regarding “death panels,” many join her in opposing Obama’s health-care overhaul .” And finally “Palin is unelectable.” “Without question, a Palin 2012 campaign would be an uphill battle. Palin is unpopular — massively so among Democrats, decisively so among independents. Even many Republicans don’t believe she’s ready to be president.” “But opinions can change. Look at the political resuscitations of Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Hillary Rodham Clinton.” “If Palin works hard and runs an impressive campaign, wavering Republicans and skeptical independents may give her a second look.” “To earn that second look, she may need to find a big idea.” “It’s hard to become president without one.” “Then again, she just might get along without one.” “After all, a presidential contest is a choice.” “The public might not love Palin. But by 2012, Americans might absolutely despise Obama.” “Two more years of a bad economy and an unpopular Afghan war , and anything is possible.” (Continetti, Matthews, 10/17/2010, Washington Post, Five myths about Sarah Palin, Retrieved from www.washingtonpost.com).
What Alaska know that no one else seems to report is that it is the same campaign that she ran with for Mayor and if memory serves she only served a couple of years before she quit. The other faint memory or thought is did she not do the same thing to her ex brother-in-law that she did with Lisa Murkowski? Sarah Palin will not be running for president and if she does it will be because of the obsession of all media than it would be to help this country in any way.
