CNNPolitics.com reports that aides for John McCain are frustrated by their ‘maverick’ vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin going all “rogue” on the Republican campaign and ignoring strategy recommendations. Past interviews with Governor Sarah Palin’s colleagues in Alaska have confirmed this is her style … that Gov. Palin is only out for ‘team’ Sarah while steamrolling over anyone who stands in her way. One McCain adviser said “she is a diva. She takes no advice from anyone … She does not have any relationships of trust with any of us, her family or anyone else.”
Although John McCain advisers Nicolle Wallace and Steve Schmidt are reportedly targets of Gov. Palin’s frustration at the decision to prevent media access to her early in the campaign, sources indicate Palin just was not ready and if reporters had interviewed her sooner the results would have been much worse. Really?? Worse than the interviews with Charlie Gibson and Katie Couric??
A close McCain adviser admitted that Palin’s “lack of fundamental understanding of some key issues was dramatic” and that is was probably the “hardest” to get her “up to speed than any candidate in history.” These revalations from the Republicans should be very alarming to the American voters.
