McCain Backs Campaign Team, Palin Stays On The Offensive

November 25, 2009 by  

McCain backs campaign team, Palin stays on the offensiveLast week, former vice presidential running mate Sarah Palin launched a book tour for Going Rogue: An American Life in which she heavily criticized the 2008 Republican campaign. However, Senator John McCain, who faced Barack Obama in that election, spoke out to defend his team.

McCain did not condemn Palin’s book, but did express his gratitude toward campaign manager Steve Schmidt and senior advisor Nicole Wallace, who were both attacked by Palin in her book and on her national media tour, according to Reuters.

The former Alaska governor accused Wallace of pushing her to do an interview with CBS anchor Katie Couric, a public appearance that proved detrimental to Palin during the campaign, said the news source.

Despite the controversy, McCain has remained positive and has continued to compliment his former running mate.

"I’m still really proud of her and the campaign she ran and I think it’s pretty obvious that she has a substantial base and interest out there," McCain said, quoted by Reuters.

Meanwhile, GOP pollster David Winston believes that Palin needs to transition her discourse into more policy-driven discussions, CNN reports.

"If she spends all of her time talking about her infighting with Steve Schmidt and that’s all she talks about for the next couple of weeks, then she will miss a major opportunity," he told the news provider.

    Who cares what McCain says or thinks? He had more chances than he ever deserved. He was responsible for the sham election of ’08. What he did was suck up to media whores, and encourage people like Specter to run to the other side of the septic tank.
    It’s time for him to retire and fade away. He can and will be replaced, and true conservatives will
    sift through and sort out RINOs, airheads and back-stabbers who aren’t comfortable having a spine or the will to stand for time-tested ideals.
    Arizona, he’s yours. You can have him.
    America needs real conservatives. Fakers and plastic hangers-on need not apply.

    • Claire

      Yeah, a real empty suit.

  • Tame

    Maybe GOP pollster David Winston needs to actually read the book AND listen to some of Sarah Palin’s interviews…since she doesn’t spend much time on the campaign relative to the whole of the book OR even discuss much about it in interviews.

    How like those who are not happy with her popularity to try to make her sound like a complaining shrew when in fact she has been addressing issues pretty heavily in her interviews.

    • MaryJane

      Tame, I agree w/you wholeheartedly. The book was a great expose’ on Sarah’s life and beliefs. As a matter of fact while reading her admiration for McCain, I kept thinking, wow, naivety is truly on display. He was part and parcel of setting her up in my opinion. He is and has been a slippery politician who stands firm on nothing and has for years.

      I admire and am a fan of S. Palin. But she truly needs to keep the rose colored glasses off. Recognize how long he has been in the Senate, how the media likes him and his many changes and supports of the Democrats. He knew he was losing and they all were setting her up for the fall. It was disgusting to watch.

      The Republicans MUST take a page from Alinsky and do the exact same things that the Dems are doing, have been doing and stop this namby-pamby approach to a bunch of venomous Marxists/fascists; many kinds of ists…..

      We Americans MUST take out every politician that is in office presently and especially those (on both sides of the aisle) who have been there for years. Truly, we must start over and from the very inset, HOLD EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM ACCOUNTABLE. This crew, needs
      to be impeached. Heck, even Hunduras military would not allow their president to break the constitution…what are we thinking?

      • JAMES

        You are 100% correct, MJ. Now, hold that thought and watch what comes down over the next 8 – 10 months…it’s going to be exciting and full of American renewal.

  • Bart Jordan

    I agree fully with S C – There comes a point when you water down the conservative message so much that it’s hard to see the difference between the socialists we have and those who would replace them. What’s the purpose of electing a Republican representative just to have them align with Democrats on critical votes thus giving the left bragging rights that allow them to say their ideas are bi-partisan? These RINO wolves in sheeps clothing are more dangerous to our republic than the most left leaning communist. At least we know what to expect from the likes of Pelosi, Reid , Franks, Dodd, Kerry & Shumer – but what makes Olympia Snowe a Republcan? Lindsay Graham and Michael Steele want to make the GOP the party of inclusion. Do we do this at the risk of losing our conservative identity? Maybe it’s time to kick the liberal elephants to the curb and replace them with those who have contrast to their opponents. I think even the most uninformed citizens are ready for a “Change” at this point. So as we target the leftist ruling elite in 2010 & 2012, maybe it would also be a good time to clean our own house and replace the RINOs as well.

  • Frank Verrall

    I thought that when Palin was picked for V.P it was a flaky choice and what she has said and done since has not changed my mind,
    She is a political opportunist that will be going nowhere and seeks to blame all but herself and the fact that she used her poor downs syndrome child as an election prop will assure that she is politically dead

    • s c

      Frank, PLEASE! If you think Palin is a ‘political opportunist,’ then WHAT do you call McCain? I am NOT trying to glorify Palin, and I don’t look at her as God’s gift to conservative politics.
      Can you see McCain as a role model? McCain personifies a two-faced, spineless yahoo who gleefully sucks up to media whores so he fool himslf into thinking he’s won a popularity poll. The guy does NOT pack the gear, Frank. McCain has gone out of his way to be a professional casper milquetoast.
      I have to wonder if you see that weasel, specter, the same way you do McCain. If you call yourself a conservative [?], surely you must understand how your words seem more than just peculiar.

      • GregS

        S C, Frank exposed himself as a liberal in his first sentance. Liberals always pull out the “flaky” card when they talk about Sarah Palin. They use these types of demonizing generalities when they can’t think of anything bad to say about the person (conservative) with whom they disagree.

        • GregS

          That word should be spelled as “sentence,” not “sentance.” Sorry for the typo.

        • denniso

          Liberals bring out the ‘flaky card’? Wow, so Palin can’t be flaky because that would be a liberal ploy at defamation?
          Sorry, but Palin IS flaky,spacey,wacky,silly and daffy. She does a disservice to the serious minded women politicians in the repub party..get her nominated and watch a landslide against her. She has no credibility,folks.

          • GregS

            “…get her nominated and watch a landslide against her. She has no credibility,folks.”

            That’s yet to be seen, and you liberals know it! She brought in a lot of votes for McCain.

          • denniso

            I knew when Palin was picked that McCain then couldn’t win. Many independents knew that McCain and his people had made a purely political choice,trying to appease the wacko right wing of the repub party. Everyone knew that Palin was totally unprepared to assume the presidency in the event that McCain croaked. He would have been the oldest 1st term president ever and that coupled w/ a dimwit like Palin as his backup scared the hell out of most people. It was the biggest blunder of his campaign. Now,luckily, Palin has lost any credibility she may have had.. she’s history.

          • GregS

            denniso, there were many factors that got Obama into the presidency, and I can assure you that they had nothing to do with Sarah Palin. Futhermore, you are not “everyone,” and you are not even “most people.”

    • http://WND D W

      You, Mr. Verrall, are a sad man to think that Sarah Palin used her Downs Syndrome child. Ask anyone who hsa a family member with special needs and they will tell you that they are not “poor” at all but a wonderful blessing ! Perhaps you are one of the liberals who side with abortion and genocide. “Let’s just hide all of those human beings who do not fit the mold.” Shame on you and your weak thinking. I applaud Sarah for not only providing life to her child but for not being ashamed.

      • eyeswideopen

        D.w. Sarah, took her children out of school from Aug thru Nov. to travel with her and be on stage. In addition to the potential ear damage that they all, including the infant could have sustained,is the fact that the youngest daughter while being interviewed by Greta, stated that she got very behind in her school work. When you repeatedly expose children to noise levels greater than 80 decibles such as firearms and jet engine (140 decibles) you are putting them at risk for permanent hearing loss. Using your children to try and convince everyone that you are the all American family is not good parenting and really is selfish. Todd, should have stayed at home and made sure the childrens lives were “normal”. The political arena is an adult environment which is not conducive to healthy child rearing.Sarah’s judgement was lacking when she made the decision to haul those children all over the country for 3 months.

        • denniso

          EYO…you’re right! Some ‘family values’. She’s a phoney and somehow her flock can’t see it.

    • MaryJane

      From viewing your comments it is obvious that you are closed minded and only view the “lamestreet” media. Read the book, then make your own informed decision.

      She was way more qualified than our present president (not to mention the buffoon that is VP. Of course he knows more about foreign policy; heck, after all the years he’s been on the public dole, even he had to learn something.

      Frank, to be an American means to support and uphold the constitution of the United States of America. If you do not, if any politician does not uphold their vow, they are NOT AMERICANS…they are subversives. Read the Federalist papers, read true history and perhaps you will be enlightened.

    • JAMES

      Frank, face it. You’re a liberal whose eyes are so full of tears of joy that you can’t see anything…Republican, Democrat, or American. Go get yourself back in line, awaiting the promised Obama miracles.

    • Claire

      Frank–she must not be too dumb–she’s laughing all the way to the bank. She has a great gift-her mouth. And she is using it. I do not think she is capable of being President. She quit as governor of Alaska and why? So she could make money. I don’t blame her for trying to make money.

  • geoffrey ellis aronson

    If you conservative Republicans wish to kick out the ¨liberal elephants¨we in the Democratic Party will heartily endorse your actions. In fact, such a move will be one of only a few in which we can come to complete agreement.
    So now that we have 58 Democrats in the Senate and you want to push Snowe out, fine and dandy. We´ll take her. And Collins too. You can keep the rest. Along with the 2 independents, we´ll be more than filibuster proof.
    As for Spectre, he was pushed out by the arch-conservatives, not by McCain. If you are going to make some political points, at least get your facts straight.

    • MaryJane

      Spector was pushed out by his own deeds. The man was for a long time a dem or at the very best, a sellout.

      Both sides of the aisle are despicable and have sold out the American people. This has gone on for years despite the dire warnings coming from all over. For years I, just an ordinary citizen who happens to enjoy history and recognize that most atrocities are committed by government has been trying to open the eyes of friends and neighbors.

      The elderly for years have been voting for their selfish interests. The young have been voting along the same lines as their professors and the rewritten history they have been consuming. Races have been pitted against one another as have the sexes. Look around, who has been enabling this behavior? We are Americans all unless we are traitors to the only law that protects us from government…the Constitution of the United States. That is ALL that makes us Americans. To be one, is to believe and protect the rights afforded us by this document.

    • JAMES

      Geoffery, a year from now, recount those blessings that you’ve discovered out there in your power mirage.

  • Robert

    Dear Grim Reaper,

    So far this year you have taken away my favorite dancer Michael
    Jackson, my favorite actor Patrick Swayze and my favorite
    singer Stephen Gately and my favorite actress Farah Fawcett.

    Just so you know, my favorite politicians are Barack Obama,
    Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Charlie Rangel and
    Barney Frank !!

    • libertytrain

      Robert – that was superb.

    • JAMES

      Robert, the Grim Reaper forgot to pack his rubber gloves this trip so he’s going to have to hold off on Barney Frank for awhile.

      I need to contribute my favourite George Soros. Opps, he’s not a politician, he just owns some.

    • eyeswideopen

      Hey, just take Cheney and stop the lies. He is the only VP in history to stay in town after his term ended. He is trying to re-write history to coverup his hijacking of the Constitution, for political motives.

      • denniso

    They say: “Honesty is the best policy”, except, of course, when it comes to political promises. When you give the voters a choice between a “Centrist” from column A or a “Moderate” from column B, what you’re doing is giving them a choice between TweedleDe(mocrat) and TweedleD(umbo). ‘nough said?

  • Al

    And the Republicans wonder why they are known as the “Party Of Hate” look and listen to Yourselves..please take a chill pill.

    I feel it would be great if Sarah Palin runs for president, it can’t be any easier for the Democrats to win again, plus comedians can have yet another hayday with what comes out of Her mouth.

    • JeffH

      Are you Al “bore” Gore or just a liberal parrot? You people toss the “hate” word around like Democrats toss taxpayer dollars.
      Why all the fuss over Palin? She’s not a threat and she is stupid. Just wondered why so many on the left pay attention to a stupid, conservative woman and a quitter. Keep believing what you want. You think your messiah “the confessed Muslim” is your savior too. Talk about a joke.

      • Sue

        JeffH, dittos to ya, except for a clarification on “stupid” – this is so unjustified – how could a stupid person possibly run the state of Alaska?????? She may not be the classic book smart Washington elite politician, but, rather, I think she has more commen sense smarts in her pinky that you can find in the entire lamestreet media put together. And I rather have that any day….also, look where it’s gotten us this last decade with the existing “smarts” in Washington…

        • JeffH

          Sue, I agree with you. I was being sarcastic with my comments.

    • Claire

      Al–I think you have a point here. I remember a petition going around during the campaign. It was “Women against Palin” and before a week was over, they had almost 500,000 signatures. I was shocked.

      • Alton Robinson

        you ever think that may be be because they were jealous because they do not have the ability to do what she has done. It’s so easy to bad mouth what others have done when you should look to see what you have done.

        • Claire

          I am not pleased with anyone in the White House. I believe I have the right to have an opinion—you certainly are expressing your opinion. I believe in voting for the person I feel will do the best job and we have a ways to go yet until the next presidential campaign. A lot can happen between now and then. I am hoping for a miracle, I guess.

    • denniso

      Al…if you think you’re seeing hate here,look back at some other articles and the comments. What seems amazing is that some of these people don’t think they’re full of hate and bigotry…denial? confusion? ignorance???

  • bcorp

    Al, One thing about Palin that can not be said about most of the rest, is that even if she sounds dumb, she speaks the truth. Let’s see, Obama has visited almost all 57 states, Biden and Couric believe that FDR was pres. in 1929 and made a speech to the nation on TV. Great facts they had that were so much dumber than Palin being irritated with Katie and her asking what papers she reads. What kind of policy question was that? Duh? She reads Mad magazine as does Biden, and Obama is not able to read unless he has a teleprompter.

    • s c

      Bcorp, you must realize that you won’t be on any progressive ultraliberal’s christmas card list. It’s entirely possible that you may be on comrade obama’s ‘enemies list.’
      I’d sure like to know how many progressives understood what you said (maybe 5%?). I’d love to hear anyone in the white house or the prostitute media name all of those 57 states.

      • Alton Robinson

        now people realise that he was speaking of the 57 muslim states.

    • JeffH

      Palin speaks volumes and has an identity with plain, everyday people that are trying to live the American dream. She has lived the life and recognizes her roots and the trials and tribulations of raising a family under normal circumstances. Too many people believe what they see and hear from the MSM. Is Sarah Palin the answer? I don’t know, but Im do believe that she is genuine and has America and Americans best interest at heart.

      • Alan Clark

        If she is not the answer then someone from the same mold will be. While the Dems are pointing fingers at the Repubs and vise-versa, change will begin to manifest itself. But it will come out of nowhere. Democratic mouths along with the mouths of Republicans will hang agape as the AMERICAN PEOPLE perform their magic and take back the country that so many have fought and died for. We the people of these United States will never forget our roots. NEVER….

        • eyeswideopen

          Alan, could one of you please just explain the difference between Iran and Iraq to her. Would hate to see her try and declare war on Iraq again. She has no concept of the world beyond Alaska.

          • Claire

            Oh–I thought she could see Russia from her porch, or was it Iraq, or was it Iran? Who knows, with her. It was her psychobabble that turned people off. She literally came across as dumb. I just do not think she is Presdential material. She should have her own talk show. Maybe she will replace Oprah.

          • JeffH

            Claire, if you had done a little research and get your FACTS straight instead of taking Obermanns word for it, you would realize that russia is only 2-3 miles from Alaska. “In her Sept. 11 interview with ABC’s Charlie Gibson, Sarah Palin had this to say about Russia: “They’re our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska.” Is that true?
            Yes. Russia and Alaska are divided by the Bering Strait, which is about 55 miles at its narrowest point. In the middle of the Bering Strait are two small, sparsely populated islands: Big Diomede, which sits in Russian territory, and Little Diomede, which is part of the United States. At their closest, these two islands are a little less than two and a half miles apart, which means that, on a clear day, you can definitely see one from the other.

    “Wynn with Palin (or Coulter) in 2012″ “More B’alls Than Those Other Guys!” Steve Wynn’s appearance on Fox News Sunday a few weeks ago was outstanding. He, coupled with a strong woman such as either of the two mentioned above would be an unstoppable combination.

    • Pinecone

      Myron you said it right, would be a good combo.

  • Rod

    Sarah Palin is GREAT! She tells it like it is! We like Romney too.
    We just wish he hadn’t dropped out. Sarah just keeps on TRUCKEN! Her book is wonderful. I like her interviews with O;Reiley! Think she is
    right on. Hope she gets into the race. She scares the hell out of
    the radical left and for good reason! We gotta VOTE in 2010. Neutralize Obama!

    • JeffH

      Amen to that Rod!

      • Alan Clark

        That goes for me too, Rod

    • eyeswideopen

      Rod, the reason she scares the hell out of people is that she can’t even keep Iran and Iraq seperate in her feeble mind. She thinks that the VP writes legislation and she doesn’t really believe in smaller government when she is taking federal money with both hands. Hypocrite is her middle name.

  • Valverde

    I have to ask McCain: Did you win or lose and was it even close? The answer to both questions is no. Okay, what it you or your “team” that was running things? If it was your team, then it was time to make some changes, way back when. If it was you, then you need to look at yourself in the mirror and admit that you really screwed up. I have to say that was one of the sorriest and stupidest campaigns I have seen, rivaled only by Dole’s campaign against the Mickey D and donut man. No way you were going to win, bub, not from the outset. You never saw BO’s weaknesses and you never addressed your own strengths. Why didn’t you land on BOs obvious lack of patriotism and anti-US position with both feet and never let up. Get him down and never quit. Were you too afraid of being labeled a “nasty” politician? Better a “nasty” politician than a fool lying one, which is what we got. Do you even care? No wonder you will forever be labeled a loser. You deserve it and now America is the loser. Not that you would have been a whole lot better. At least you were pro-life. Which is a biggie in my mind. You were even afraid to trade on that, so, were you really pro-life are was that simply a ploy to get elected? If so, then you are no better than the liar that we got who will bring the whole country down around our ears. Woe to the Republican party that has forgotten its conservative roots and thinks that it has to be “moderate” to win. Moderate is nothing. A wishy-washy mouthful of garbage with no backbone, which is the way I see the Republican party. Get with it gang or 2010 and 2012 aren’t going to be pretty and the poor old USA is going to be to loser. Let’s face it, it is right makes right, not might makes right.

    • Alton Robinson

      When Palin tried to tell the truth and get rough with bho mccain and the party called her down and made her tone her speeches down.

      • denniso

        The McCain camp shut up Palin because she was loosing her marbles and they knew that most rational would condemn her stupid and racist statements about Obama and ruin McCain’s chances..they made a calculated decision looking out for their interests..not because they are wimps.

  • Valverde

    Ideal conservative team for 2012: Andy Napolitano and Newt or vice versa. All the rest sound good on the surface, but when you dig down both these guys have the knowledge and the fortitude to do it. Yes! Gingrich/Napolitano or Napolitano/Gingrich 2012.

    • eyeswideopen

      Valverde, you haven’t forgotten that Newt was forced out of politics for a reason have you? Do some research and then decide if that is who you want to represent you.

      • s c

        Thanks, guy. Remember, Jimmy ‘who the hell does the Speaker of the House think HE is?’ Carter was FORCED OUT of politics, too [by the NATION via a landslide vote, as I recall]. Remember?
        We are well aware that conservatives don’t have the market cornered when it comes to role models, but NEITHER do ultraliberal progressives. Did you forget?
        While you’re at it, guy, you might have to do some research, but kindly REMEMBER that if it wasn’t for HST (yes, Truman) giving HO CHI MINH tons of rifles and ammo at the end of WWII, we probably wouldn’t have wound up in VIETNAM. Oh, and JFK was the other one who got us into that mess. REMEMBER?

  • FRED GALLANT

    Dont mistake Sarah Palin,s down home personality as a sign that she is “dumb”. She is a highly intelligent,honest,ethical and most capable leader. Dont forget,she was a state governor,and not just of any state but the state of Alaska,the largest and arguably the most immportant state in the union. She was the bright spot in John McCain,s poorly run campaign, and after having read her book “GOING ROGUE” I have even more respect for her. If she does decide to run for President or any other public office she will most certainly get my vote. CIAO FOR NOW. FRED GALLANT.

      My vote also. If the book is true (and it must be with all the investigating and have found nothing untrue, unless the time line may be a little off)she is one great gal. Like to see michell my bell follow in her foot steps for a week, or bho for that matter. I can hear it all now duhhh now which end did you say the bullet came out of?

      The ‘book’ is full of lies and half truths. Read a real critique of it, not some repub hack praising it. But, sure, run palin again and lose again…fine w/ the smarter people.

        denniso,
        Read the book, then read the reviews. Only minor discreptancies were found. These reviews were by people who were hoping to find many,many inaccuracies. I’m sure you want to be fair to her and to yourself.

        • eyeswideopen

          Emma, yes, we are cool with “minor errors”, Don’t you think there should have been no errors? Oh, that’s right she went to 4 different colleges in 5 years, she doesn’t really value accuracy or stability. Wasn’t she the one who quit half way thru her term? Was that to make money? Oh, yea, good idea, strike while the iron is hot. She is truly amazing, to be critizing others about children, when during campaign she had hers out of school for three months, in a horrible environment, trying to protray that they were the “perfect” family.

      Fred, you are not accurate with your statement about Alaska, do some research prior to opening your mouth and looking like Palin does.

    Valverde says: “Were you too afraid of being labeled a “nasty” politician?”

    Words of wisdom, Mr. McCain and that also goes for the rest of the mainstream Republican party. You have all turned into a bunch of wimps when it comes to campaigning….you act like puppies…”Love me! Love me!”.

    Well, you ran into a buzzsaw in 2008…Obama and his gang of thugs from Chicago weren’t afraid to play dirty pool, and they ate your lunch. The only one they were afraid of was Sarah Palin, and that is why they attack her to this day. She isn’t afraid to call anyone out, be it R or D.

    • denniso

      You’ve got it exactly backwards..most of the repubs are bullies/thugs, the dems are wimps..afraid to fight for what they believe in. Of course, most of the repubs don’t believe in anything except $$ and war.

    JeffH; I was being sarcastic. I am fully aware of the whereabouts of Russia, Iraq, and Iran. In spite of you being sassy with me, I still agree with you about choosing the best qualified persons in 2010 and 2012. Both parties are evil, and we must vote wisely or it will be more of the same. We have to be very careful with the next elections. If enough of them are thrown out, there may be a chance.

    First, the ‘James’ comments of Nov. 25 at 12:26, 12:33, 12:37 and 12:41 PM, are not mine (there are two ‘James’ here).
    The reason McCain and Palin lost was because McCain said he would continue the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan until we ‘won’, whatever that means. Our troops don’t know who or where the enemy is, until one walks to them and blows their brains out.
    Because of that Republicsns didn’t stand a chance. Americans wanted those endless wars to end, they voted against the status quo and for change. Let’s remember, the 19 Hijackers were all here legally, and 15 of them were from Saudi Arabia. And not one of them was affiliated with Al Qaeda or the Taliban. When President Bush sought congressional authority to invade Iraq, he never mentioned those two groups, nor were any such groups ever found in Iraq. Think about it.

  • FRED GALLANT

    Hey Denniso. What lies and half truths in Sarah Palin’s “GOING ROGUE” book are you referring to? Be specific. I read her book and found it to be quite accurate. She is truly an amazing Woman. What source did you contact in order to make your accusations? If there is a source that disputes with proof Sarah Palin’s story then let us know. FRED GALLANT.

  • FRED GALLANT

    Hey eyeswideopen. In what way am I not accurate on Alaska? You sound like dennison. Be specific, otherwise change your handle to eyeswideshut. FRED GALLANT

    “Meanwhile, GOP pollster David Winston believes that Palin needs to transition her discourse into more policy-driven discussions, CNN reports.

    ‘If she spends all of her time talking about her infighting with Steve Schmidt and that’s all she talks about for the next couple of weeks, then she will miss a major opportunity,’ he told the news provider.”

    I think David Winston needs to familiarize himself with the topics he tries to discuss. I have read Sarah Palin’s book and that is pretty much the only time I have ever seen her mention her infighting with Steve Schmidt. On the campaign trail, she has discussed policy and has never mentioned anything about her experiences with the few bozos in the McCain campaign.

    By the way, David, she has been extremely successfull in giving a boost to those candidates for whom she has campaigned. I might ask how YOU have helped with your erroneous sideline carping — or were you trying to give the Dems a boost?
