Palin Awesome–The Next Reagan? 4 September, 2008Posted by David Anderson in Election 2008, Sarah Palin.
Republicans have been asking where is the next Reagan for a year. The answer seems to be, she was in Alaska.
It is amazing how much like Reagan she is. The same strengths and weaknesses in many ways. Reagan’s family was criticized. He too was a sportscaster. He was a passionate spokesperson for traditional virtues as is she. They are both incorruptible and any scandal their enemies trump up are actions rooted in achieving good. They both did tax shifting but overall cut them. Both are reformers challenging a corrupt establishment. Both came out of middle America and were shaped by the frontier states. Both can communicate with the people like few in his/her generation. They are both colorful, outdoors folks. They are both adored by fellow Republicans. Both upset powerful incumbent governors. Both were drafted for national office after two years as Governor. Both adored their spouses. Both received the scorn of the national media.
It is not bad company to keep. Yes, I liked the speech. Governor Palin is as good as Senator Obama.
