Why Palin Will Never Be President

January 13, 2011 · Leave a Comment

Did you see both the pathetic 7 minute segment posted by Sarah Palin and President Obama’s speech on Wednesday, 1.12.2011?
Please watch these back to back.

I’ll give you my summary:
Palin – Insensitive to the moment; inappropriate use of “blood libel” to describe her perceived persecution by critics following the Arizona tragedy; revealing a self-centered egotism that can only comment on something in terms of herself; attempts to defend the current vitriolic tone of political discourse by reaching back to the 18th and early 19th centuries where differences were settled by pistol or sword duels. In a word, pathetic. We see why she’s a quitter and will never be President. Her handlers, who decided this was the moment she should choose to speak out, should be charged with political malpractice.

Obama – Rising above the political; combining a subtle combination of honor, challenge to be our better selves, and a call for unity; holding out compassion and hope.
