GOP Strategist Ed Rollins Blasts Sarah Palin For Comparing Herself To Ronald Reagan (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Dec 2nd 2010 6:00PM
Ed Rollins knew Ronald Reagan, having run his 1984 Presidential campaign in which Reagan won 49 states. And Ed Rollins wants Sarah Palin to know she's not anything like Ronald Reagan, who the former Alaska governor often compares herself to.

Appearing on 'John King USA' (weekdays , 7 PM ET on CNN) Rollins discussed an article he wrote recently in which he said to Palin, "I would have hoped among the five colleges you attended that you would have learned a little history. And I can tell you being governor of the most populous state is a lot tougher than being governor of one of the least populous ones."

"Her whole rhetoric now is Ronald Reagan did this, so therefor I can do that," Rollins explained to King, after King had showed his audience quotes from Rollins' article about Palin. "She ain't Ronald Reagan. Reagan was a very significant person by the time he ended up running for president."

It seems safe to assume that Rollins has now joined the rapidly expanding group of republicans who would like to see Palin stay in Alaska. (Or in the cyberworld of Facebook and Twitter.)

She would like to be a heavyweight, but is shallow as can be in so many ways.

Joy Behar and Bill O'Reilly are so in love with themselves that they constantly drown out anyone who is around and both can talk non-stop without ever coming up for air or ever saying anything worthwhile. Just can't watch either for more than 2 minutes without changing channels.

Who the hell is ED Rollins? I thought he died years ago and never knew he was a republican. Haven't heard his name in a long time. The American people have brains and now realize that they have the power to elect intelligent representatives in
Washington, D.C. Hopefully the old fogies are going to be placed on the back burner where they can keep out of trouble.

You goooooo Mr. Rollins, she couldn't hold Reagans shoes!!! Why is America so "dumb"founded by this fool? Because they don't want to see this country thrive.....they actually want someone without a formal education, a dysfunctional family and no clue about history to run this country?

Marilyn DeBrase; You can bark up the tree until the cows come home, but it is still just barking. IT IS STILL NOT PROVEN TO ME WHEN AND WHERE OBAMA WAS BORN. I can not ever remember a newspaper article or picture confirming any facts on his birth certificate. There are many other questions unanswered and I feel he will go down as the president the least we know about.
John McCain father was in the service of his country, major differance in fathers.
And as far as being stupid anyone that blindly follows someone without questions answered I will vote for. Another question please tell me how you can borrow Trillions to save Billions ?? Careful you are on the edg.

The more Palin talks the more she shows what a phony and an idiot she really is.

A Palin? What the hell is a Palin? The above story are my thoughts, exactly. Reagan had balls, which it takes to be President of our country and he showed it many times, something you don't have. I can see it right now......The morning that Mc Cain was going to announce his(?--I doubt it)choice for Vice President, he probably received a phone call from the Republican Election Committee informing him who was going to be his running mate. After hanging up the phone he told his wife, "honey, we just lost the presidency. Now they got somebody named Palin from Alaska to run with me but as i asked previously, "what the hell is a Palin?" Next this Palin will want to run for president, oh well it's the committes call, not mine and by the way, what does a vice president really do besides ride the coat tails of the Pres.?"

God bless America
