GOP Guvs on ’12 Prospects

Asked for reaction to Palin in the form of two adjectives, most Republican governors or governors-elect committed long pauses before coming up with politically safe (and/but telling) replies. However, Palin’s name was not heard very often in the hallways of the RGA meeting in San Diego, except out of the mouths of reporters.

Read the two words (or so) Scott Walker and other Republican bigs used to describe Haley Barbour, Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin and more in San Diego.

Scott Walker:

On Barbour: Dynamic, Aggressive
On Palin: Interesting, Aggressive
On Romney: Professional, Motivated

Bobby Jindal:

On Barbour: Southern, Effective
On Daniels: Fiscally responsible
On Palin: Charismatic

Rick Snyder:

On Barbour: Colorful, Effective
On Palin: Interesting, Unexpected
On Christie: Focused, Exciting

Bob McDonnell:

On Jindal: Brilliant, Savvy
On Barbour: Warm, Tough
On Palin: Enthusiastic, Passionate
