with Sarah Palin, according to this Newsmax..com article:
"Palin’s bluster is what we have come to expect from politicians. That is one reason polls show they are held in less esteem than used car salesmen.
But Palin was supposed to be different. Like Obama, she promised she would tell it like it is. But like Obama, who never misses a chance to make misleading comparisons with the Bush administration, Palin has undermined her own credibility.
That has not gone unnoticed in conservative circles. In recent months, several of the most respected leaders of the conservative movement have told me that they are disappointed in Palin. Although they will not say so publicly, none sees her as a serious presidential candidate."
This is not from some "liberal rag," folks. This is from Newsmax, a web site popular among conservatives.
