You know I really, really, really wanted to like Sarah Palin
. I was hoping she was something different and that the GOP of the future would include her and that she would bring solid conservative views, but it's becoming more and more apparent that she is no different than the current crop of Republicans who aren't conservative.
In an interview today with Wolf Blitzer on CNN Sarah Palin was asked if she supported the $700 billion dollar bailout of Wall Street and she said that it was the right thing to do and that she would have voted for it.
When asked why she felt the McCain ticket lost, the first thing out of her mouth was that some speculated that it was because of the Hispanic vote. What? Well she listed other things, but it was telling that the first thing that came out of her mouth is her belief that they didn't pander enough to one race of people in this country.
Is this the future of the GOP? The change back to conservative roots?
I reported on how Palin came out days before the election and in a Univision interview stated that she was for amnesty for illegal aliens, now we are hearing all of this from her.
As I said at the beginning of this article I really, really wanted to get behind her. I was hoping she was the outsider who would come into the GOP with some sense and bring it back to it's roots. I was hoping that over the next four years she would get word that amnesty for illegal aliens is not what Conservative voters wanted and that she would look into it more and agree that she was simply ill informed by the McCain campaign before.
Now I have no hope for her.
She is no different from the current set of GOP politicians who have destroyed anything that was Conservative in the Republican Party and lost in miserable fashion. That is what she will bring in the future if she moves forward in the GOP. More of the current beliefs that have destroyed the Republican Party.
Sarah Palin is Republican status quo.
