Barbara Bush Hopes Palin Stays in Alaska

There’s one thing which independents, Democrats, and even a sizable number of Republicans agree on–it would be a disaster if Sarah Palin were to become president. Most realize that Palin is clueless on the issues and not competent for national office. Her support is primarily limited to the most ignorant group in America–tea party members. Many Republicans have additional motivation to hope that Palin does not run as a ticket led by Palin could lead to a massive wave election which would more than reverse GOP gains made in the off year election.

Palin’s recent claim that she believes she can defeat Barack Obama has many Republicans worried that she might run. They are not thrilled by the prospect that the Republicans could have a candidate who is as unqualified for national office as Palin, who couldn’t complete even a single term of office in a position with more responsibility than mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, and who would need to go through an entire presidential campaign avoiding press interviews beyond those from the Republican’s house media outlet (Fox).

While we are still in the increasingly visible “invisible primary” phase, I bet that we will be seeing many prominent Republicans try to stop her campaign before it gets off the ground. I don’t know if this was part of an attempt to help the party or just a comment on her personal views, but Barbara Bush has made her opinion clear on Palin in an interview with Larry King:

Sarah Palin may not have the biggest fan in former first lady Barbara Bush. “I sat next to her once. Thought she was beautiful,” Barbara Bush said. “And she’s very happy in Alaska, and I hope she’ll stay there.”
