Paladino on Palin: She Just Throws a Bunch of Words Around

Friday, September 17, 2010 - 04:29 PM

Something I couldn't resist posting during my day of exceedingly light blogging:

The video accompaniment of Carl Paladino explaining why he doesn't think much of fellow Republican insurgents Sarah Palin and Chris Chistie.

Note: the audio isn't stellar, but the disdain comes across loud and clear.

While discussing 2012 presidential candidates, I asked what he thought about Palin.

"We need a real leader, not someone who is going to go there and just throw a bunch of words around," Paladino said.

I'm sure someone said that about the Gestapo once.

"G", as bad as this sounds I think there's more to it. I believe it's been taken out of context intentionally. I think it's a set up to pull Paladino down and was not the question asked.
I am pretty certain he wouldn't diss someone who has a strong affiliation with the Tea Party.
If it was about the 2012 presidency, I would have to agree at this time in my opinion that I don't feel Palin can win it. Don't get me wrong for I love who she is and have the utmost respect for her and all that she has done but I just don't think she is strong enough at this time. As the Vice President of these United States she'd be "a Lock" guaranteed but needs a few more years before winning the presidency.

What an ass. Palin is one of the only true leader this nation has. Most certainly the most powerful leader since Ronald Reagan himself. How exactly did this nimrod make it this far????

It's important to remember that the cobblestones laid for this once great political road, now lay in rubble and took years to deteriorate, breaking down from the good. And now as we stand mesmerized while absorbing that shocking reality we must remember together what it took to first accomplish. If we have others that support us without overzealous of self gain lets embrace their goodness and contribution to the stones they've laid new for the road back to freedom and truth in our government
