McCain Regrets Sarah Palin and what she did for Trump

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) reportedly regrets choosing former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate in 2008.

In an upcoming HBO documentary, McCain reportedly says that choosing Palin over Joe Lieberman was “another mistake” that he made during his political career, according to a Saturday New York Times report. In his upcoming book, Restless Wave, McCain reportedly recalls “that his advisers warned him that picking a vice-presidential candidate” in Lieberman “who caucused with Democrats and supported abortion rights would divide Republicans and doom his chances.”

“It was sound advice that I could reason for myself,” he reportedly writes. “But my gut told me to ignore it and I wish I had.”

Palin galvanized conservatives and working-class voters who were fed up with both political parties when she was put on the ticket, and she was the only reason McCain even had a fighting chance of defeating Barack Obama in 2008—the McCain-Palin ticket took a two-point lead after the Republican National Convention.

Voters ultimately vote for the top of the ticket, though, and McCain lost the election in large part because his incompetent and in-over-their-head advisers like Nicolle Wallace and Steve Schmidt decided to infamously go “all-in” by suspending his campaign during the financial crisis. McCain’s hacks, who allowed McCain to go to White House meetings about the financial crisis without being fully prepared or briefed about TARP (Trouble Asset Relief Program), somehow managed to make a freshman Senator seem more presidential than the distinguished war hero and veteran legislator.

After the 2008 election, Palin gave a voice to blue-collar conservatives who were ignored by the GOP establishment that had nothing but disdain and contempt for them and the issues they cared about like illegal immigration. The former Alaska Governor also made it possible for an economic nationalist and outsider candidate like Donald Trump to eventually crush the Republican establishment in the 2016 primaries and then shock the elites in the bipartisan permanent political class in the general election.

 The Republican establishment, sensing the existential threat that Palin represented long before Trump’s rise, promptly tried everything to undermine her influence, previewing what they would try to do to Trump eight years later.

Last year, I highlighted nine prominent ways in which Palin was a trailblazer for Donald Trump’s rise, and former President Barack Obama, whose head Palin lived in rent free for much of his time in the White House, also observed that there is a “straight line” from Palin to Trump.

“I see a straight line from the announcement of Sarah Palin as the vice-presidential nominee to what we see today in Donald Trump, the emergence of the Freedom Caucus, the tea party, and the shift in the center of gravity for the Republican Party,”

Palin did a better job than McCain in the campaign. As said about she woke up the blue collar worker.  McCain was not the choice of working class America.  He has now joined democrats and turned his back on America.

It is kinda funny how those who couldn't want to tell those who can how to do things

It's kinda funny how someone with an opinion different than yours has 'turned his back on America'. Why do you think someone is 'un-American', just because they don't think the same way you do? What makes someone 'un-American'? You do realize that differing opinions is how we got to America to begin with, right?

If Palin was taken in by anything, if was a chance for extended fame and the remote possibility she could one day be president.

Are you comparing Palin to "I can take it or leave it" Hellda on
the Presidency.!? She's been drunk since nov 2016, blamed everyone
and everything daily but herself. Her only campaign was I'll do exactly
what Baraak did for eight years only I'll bring in 500% more muslins.
 
Every American knows who and what she is and that isn't what the
serious working people strapped for healthcare cash wanted. Jobs 
needed and freedom from big lawless government. Even the FBI
turned outlaw with Baraak. 
 
Ma Baker Hellda, stupid voters haven't a clue how bad that would
get very soon. And still too stupid/ignorant by their everyday actions.

Well, stooge I will keep it simple for you. Obama deported more illegals than any president in history. From there, your argument goes down hill. Helping refugees is what makes America great, not acting like Germany in the 1930s. Uneducated Republicans are how we got to this place in America.

Obozo --------- 8 years,,, He deported the Christians coming in
that he never intended to bring in the first place

 

Trump ---------1.5 years ,,,,, Time will tell, He has already stopped
more from coming in than Obozoid shipped out. There are reports
of inflated deported numbers, which makes sense.
They weren't here to just leave.
