It appears that some Republican governors feelings are hurt because of the attention that the media is paying to Alaska governor Sarah Palin.
As the Republican governors meet in Miami, some are sniping at Gov. Palin and telling a network that no one watches, CNN, that they were uncomfortable with the news conference that was held this morning.
Here is a clue.
I am all but certain that one who had no guts to go on the record was Minnesota governor Tim Palwenty. I am certain of that because Gov. Palwenty was one of the earliest elected officials to support the failure that was the John McCain candidacy. And I am certain that he is trying to cut her off so that he can make a run at the Republican nomination in 2012.
What is amazing is that almost every bit of the no-names that keep going to the DDBMSOWM crowd get whacked for making up stuff about Gov. Palin.
If any of these governors want to become leaders within the Republican party, step up now and take on Gov. Palin. And, say who you are.
Again, if you are like me, you realize that all of this was done to one Ronald Wilson Reagan. In 1968 when there was a draft-Reagan group trying to stop Richard Nixon from becoming the GOP presidential nominee. In 1976 when then former governor Reagan went up against then Vice-President Ford. In 1980 when he won the GOP nod and beat the peanut farmer, Jimmah.
I think that Gov. Palin makes the establishment scared. And they should be. Because she is doing what smart people do. Articulate issues and use common sense, conservative solutions. Does anyone think that President-elect Obama and company have real answers to the energy situation? Gov. Palin does.
People. Get over yourselves. Gov. Palin is the leader of the Republican party. Time to either offer someone else or get out of the way. And, stop being chickens when you go to your DDBMSOWM friends.
