A top Richard Nixon “hitman” has some thoughts on Sarah Palin’s recent resignation. In a recent Newsmax.com article by Roger Stone, Palin is exonerated and defended, but Stone also hints that she needs a better PR team.
Roger Stone believes that Sarah Palin HAD to quit her job to become a valid candidate for the 2012 presidential election.
The “Stone Zone” commentator has a few reasons for his theory:
- Sarah Palin is a lightning rod for “nuisance lawsuits,” which hurt Alaska.
- The economic climate in Alaska isn’t able to sustain its citizens and Palin.
- To be viable for 2012, Sarah Palin needs public relations coaching.
Interestingly, Roger Stone compared Palin’s decision to a similar one made by Richard Nixon in 1962.
“[He was] fed up by the constant assault on his values and his middle-class background by the liberal media,” Stone said.
Nixon “quit” politics – and six years later was elected president. Could Palin do the same? Maybe a Roger Stone/Palin political team could take the White House, but it’s still quite a ways in the future. I just think that Palin’s much too divisive. You either love her or hate her, and I doubt she could pull 50 percent of the vote.
You’ve got to love Roger Stone’s favorite quote, which is certainly applicable today.
"Admit nothing, deny everything, launch counterattack."
What do you think? Is Sarah Palin electable? Let me know!
