If you watch a few documentaries on Sarah Palin. One- Greta did about the truth about drilling in Alaska and the leftist media lies that drilling in Alaska kills animals, harms the environment. This narrative was completely discredited and very astutely shown (by Sarah Palin in this documentary) to be false, leftist lies, on drilling.
The other documentary of what she really did as governor of Alaska. She worked with democrats, Stood on her own fighting and winning against cronyism. Mrs. Palin is qualified to be President. What Mrs. Palin lacks in foreign policy skills that all seem to think only neo conservatives like Cheney; or because you were the chairman of some intelligence committee, like Biden for years, can fulfill...
Palin fulfills and qualifies for foreign policy/CIC skills, because a good leader will surround themselves with those more knowledgeable and experienced. This is precisely why you have joint chiefs. Plus let's tell the truth, Obama lowered the bar on experience needed- to be President.
The truth about what happened to Sarah Palin is this...
She was Alinskyized. The Saul Alinsky targeting tactcs were fully applied to Sarah Palin. It worked. She was targeted and ridiculed in the MSM complete with the perception that she is a dingy, dimwit that tawks funny via Tina Fey.
This tactic worked so well that no matter what your politics, even if you like her and her politics you think less of her, something is wrong with her.
The completion of the Alinsky tactics applied to Mrs. Palin was the lawyers in Alaska challenging if she passed gas the wrong way to the wind or how she breathed...made her crack. Her further demise was leftist trolls parading the internet forums saying, 'Palin or NOBODY, she is a goddess,' 'she is following sun tsu and will be our hero and we built a altar to her.' ( Palin also helped them a bit by using terms such as LAMEstream media.) To make her *APPEAR* sappy and dumb as dirt, when she is not.
Since The Alinsky tactics were applied to Sarah Palin the general population of even non political junkies woke up to the bias media and their 1-target 2-attack, radical Alinsky tactics.
Think about it...we have all known there was a touch of liberal bias in the mainstream media but no one was fully aware of their complete and total progressive political bias and agenda.
So Palin would be a damned good President but she has been ruined, alinskyized. You cannot put the genie back in the bottle PR/marketing-wise...the damage is done.
Edited to add: The same tactics can be currently- seen in action- towards Ted Cruz. (technically these people are all Dan Quayled as 'potatoe potatos) I watched on-line, as progressives IMMEDIATELY called Cruz "stupid" Then... his resume' was seen by all and then they stfu. Rand Paul, Ben Carson will be painted as loons. It won't work-out as well as it did for Palin but the self-doubt will always be there in their Alinsky-tactics because they have the power of the press AND NOW the DOJ, FBI, IRS, NSA to destroy. So... prior to Palin they had the alphabet channels. Now they have the alphabet channels and the alphabet, powerful government agencies. (SEE: CHRISTIE and General Petraeus )
Rand Paul is the only one using the tactics against them somewhat... i e.... the war on women and Billy Jeff Clinton.
