The left is starting to worry that it is a statistical improbably that an incumbent president can’t win re-election when the unemployment rate is above 7 percent. Even Howard Dean sees Sarah Palin as a potential contender against Barack Obama in 2012. The economic mood in America is not getting better and the Left has their play book out that attacks the right rather than touting their accomplishments.
The Democrats have no plan to sure up medicare, in fact they stole 500 billion for their Failed Health Care plan. They have no Budget, in fact Obama’s budget was voted down 97 to 0, and there is nothing on the table to deal with unemployment.
All the Democrats have is commercials that show Republicans throwing one Grandmother off a cliff. Problem is in reality if the Democrats continue their stance there will have to be many congressman carrying hundreds of Grandmas off the cliff as Medicare will cease to exist if the Democrats continue their policy of doing nothing.
Howard Dean Gets it. The Dems have to do something or the Likes of Sarah Palin could be elected to the presidency in 2012. If that doesn;t scare some Democrats into doing something like proposing a Budget, a Medicare fix, and some budget cuts, we are not sure what will
He gets it. Finally, someone gets it:
“I think she could win,” Dean told The Hill in an interview Friday. “She wouldn’t be my first choice if I were a Republican but I think she could win.”
Dean warns the sluggish economy could have more of a political impact than many Washington strategists and pundits assume.
“Any time you have a contest — particularly when unemployment is as high as it is — nobody gets a walkover,” Dean said. “Whoever the Republicans nominate, including people like Sarah Palin, whom the inside-the-Beltway crowd dismisses — my view is if you get the nomination of a major party, you can win the presidency, I don’t care what people write about you inside the Beltway,” Dean said.
Pundits speak of her lack of professional organization. What they don’t speak of so often is her willingness to say and do things very few politicians will. She will play the race card powerfully, often and repeatedly. She will run a campaign against Obama as an un-American. She will run on hatred of elites, will turn every sad gaffe, lie or untruth into “truth”, she will deploy religious motifs more effectively than any Republican candidate in modern times. In the last campaign she accused Obama of being a friend of terrorists, and was prevented from using Jeremiah Wright in the last few weeks of the campaign. She will make the Willie Horton ad look like happytalk.
