Apologies To Sarah Palin

In light of the revelation that Romney-Ryan received fewer votes than McCain-Palin, despite running against an incumbent president with the worst record in our nation’s history, I think it’s time to lay the theory that Sarah Palin cost McCain the election to rest.

In fact, I would argue that McCain would have lost by a much bigger margin without her on the ticket. He is no more loved by the base than Romney is.

Apologies can be sent here:

A Clear Sighted View From New Zealand “Why The Left Hates Sarah Palin”

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on November 17, 2012

Here is an in-depth article reviewing Palin hate from a Kiwi point of  view. The very cleverly named “coNZervative” blog from down under examines roots of Palin hate and the media distortion that drives it.

*********************************************************************************

Why the Left Hates Sarah Palin

Posted on November 17, 2012 

This article is by American writer and comic Evan Sayet, first published on his blog 2 Nov. Sayet insightfully critiques the tribalistic hatred of a prominent Centre-Rightist, Governor Sarah Palin.  I include it here, because the same thing happens in NZ all the time, on Blogs and in the media and passes itself off as “objective reporting.”  His article starts with a conversation with a Democrat who parrots “Sarah Palin is Stupid” which is almost an exact replica of a Facebook conversation that took place this week between myself, DPF atKiwiblog and others, about the denigration and alleged stupidity of an ex NZ MP (which I’ll post on, separately).

This annoys me, as Sarah Palin – like Ronald Reagan before her – has become a mockery meme, and is unfairly mocked along with her husband and children, by smug liberals and partisan journalists. They constantly miss-report, make things up, and market false memes.  This is something Joseph Goebbels was masterful at. The continual denigration of Mitt Romney and the Republicans by the Democrats parroted by a very partisan media, is now widely acknowledged as a factor in Barack Obama’s re-election. One of my earliest blogs was about the ‘Sarah Plain can see Russia from her home’ distortion, which you can review here:

I’ve actually heard this misquoted about five times on RadioNZ (never corrected) over the last few months.  But, here is Sayet who says et much better than I can.

English: This is an alternate crop of an image...
.
It just happened again.


I spend a fair amount of time at my local coffee shop.  I like to do my writing outside and, besides, it gives me an opportunity to try and initiate political conversations with the people who pass by — my hope always being to begin to enlighten them as to what conservatives really believe (and not just what the leftist media tells them.)


Today, the conversation turned to Sarah Palin and my latest acquaintance blurted out: “Oh Ihate her.”  Since she did not yet know my politics, and since we were in Los Angeles, it is clear that she expected to hear back what you usually hear back in this city: “Yeah, I hate her, too.”  Instead, I asked her why.


At this point I could have predicted her response because it’s the same response you get from liberals no matter who on the Right you’re talking about: “Because she’s stupid.”  I replied: “Being stupid is no reason to hate someone, but tell me, which one of her policies do you disagree with?”  It wasn’t hard to predict her response: “All of them!”

I continued to push.  “Well, then, if it’s all of them, it should be easy for you to name one.”  Her reply?  “They’re too many to list.”

“So don’t list them, just give me one,” I said.

This went on for awhile until my new acquaintance finally admitted that she didn’t know any of Ms. Palin’s policies.  Before she ran off – Democrats always run off when asked to provide facts to justify their hatred for Republicans – I looked her in the eyes and said, “If you don’t know any of her policies, perhaps you should look into them.”  She promised she would.  She won’t.  If there are two things you can count on with Democrats, they are filled with hate and empty of facts.

But it got me to thinking.  Given that these people don’t know any of Ms. Palin’s political positions, what is it about her that they hate?  It has to be her life story.  Now, to all decent people, Ms. Palin’s life story could not be more laudable.  She married her high school sweetheart to whom she remains married and with whom she is apparently still in love.  In the harshest of climes, she and Todd started a small business which, apparently, they ran well enough to purchase a home and raise a family.  Despite the long hours required to run a family business and raise children, when Ms. Palin saw that the public schools were not doing a good job in educating her children, she joined the local PTA and was so effective there that the people who knew her best – and in small towns like Wasilla there are very few secrets – elected her to be their mayor.

Apparently, Ms. Palin was so effective in that job that the mayors of the other small towns and big cities elected her president of the Alaska Conference of Mayors.  After a highly successful stint as chairman of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, she ran an uphill battle against an entrenched Republican governor and was elected to the top position, Governor, of the largest state in the nation.  She did that job so well that her approval ratings – despite having ruffled the feathers of the leading political family in Alaska – bordered on 80 percent.

As Ms. Palin’s political horizons continued to grow, she found out she was pregnant with her fourth child, a baby with Downs Syndrome.  Despite knowing in advance that this child would require even more attention and care than other kids, Ms. Palin opted to give her child – Trig – life.

So, given that those who hate – hate!!! – Ms. Palin know nothing more than these facts about her, what is it about Ms. Palin’s life story that generates this blind loathing?  The answer is that, at every turn, Ms. Palin’s story debunks the myths of victimization and self-centeredness that is at the heart of the modern liberal ideology.

First, Ms. Palin is married with children.  The Democrat Party’s treasured storyline is that women with children – especially those who take care of them themselves – are oppressed, victimized and doomed to a life without personal fulfillment.  Ms. Palin’s life proves them wrong and the Democrats hate her for this.  If Ms. Palin were a Democrat she would have offed the last child before he was born so that she could have more “me” time to pursue her own wants and pleasures.  There is clearly something very “wrong” with this woman who allowed her “special needs” child to live.  They hate her for that.

One of the most obvious demographic differences between the Left and the Right is that people without children – those too self-centered and jealous of others stealing “their” attention, angry and hate-filled “feminists,” radical homosexuals and school children too young to have started a family — are just about guaranteed to pull the lever for anyone with a “D” next to their names.  Those married with children are just as assured to pull the lever for someone from the Right.

And Sarah Palin ran a small business.  Democrats don’t run businesses.  In fact, Democrats don’t do anything.  If you eliminated from the voting roll everyone who did nothing other than talk – the academic, the newscaster, the actor, the politician – and those who game the system, collecting welfare and years of unemployment benefits and “workman’s compensation” and food stamps, how many people would be left voting Democrat?

Let’s put it this way, if having had a job – having done something that required either physical labor or risking one’s own money – were a prerequisite to work in the White House, Barack Obama would have to fire 94 percent of his top advisers.  That’s a real number.  Ninety four percent of Obama’s top advisers have never done anything like run a small store, paint a bridge, wire a house for electricity or anything else other than flap their lips.

This is the genesis of the notion that Palin is “stupid.”  Liberals are convinced that there’s something “the matter” with people who have jobs.  This is what they mean by “What’s the Matter with Kansas,” Kansas being a place where people work – Hollywood, Cambridge Massachusetts, the TV studios in Manhattan are places were people talk.  To the liberal,anyone who has a job must be stupid, after all, not everyone is as good a talker as they are, but surely everyone can find one excuse or another to sit at home and collect welfare.

In fact, to the modern liberal, anyone who has a job is not just stupid, he (or she) is dangerous. These people “cling” to their guns and their religion because they toil for their reward.  These people are constantly on the verge of violence, whether it’s an attack like the one they caused in Tucson (according to the leftist script) or just by going home and beating their children.  Consider the lyrics of “the working man’s troubadour” by Bruce Springsteen:

Outstanding Article Discussing What Sarah Palin And Hillary Clinton Brought To The Political And Social Arena

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on November 17, 2012

Here is an outstanding article discussing what Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton brought to the political and social arena through their various strengths and forbearance in the face of intense and unfair pressure.

By Linda Baeil writing at the San Diego North Country Times

*******************************************************************************

What’s behind GOP’s problem with women voters

 •  Linda Beail

What do women want? This is one question Republican candidates and strategists must be asking in the wake of the 2012 election. A 10-point gender gap, the largest since 1996, gave President Obama a thin margin of victory. While women gained a record number of seats in the House and Senate, the number of those congresswomen who are Republicans dropped from nearly one-third to less than a quarter on election night.

The perception of a Republican “War on Women” may be overblown. But the disconnect with women voters in policy and rhetoric, and the absence of women candidates in the presidential race from either party, might cause us to reflect on the debates and issues that engaged women in 2008.

Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin not only served as role models who cracked the glass ceiling of presidential election politics, they also embodied different perspectives and choices regarding women in leadership. Clinton’s experiences of media coverage in the Democratic primary demonstrated the continuing double-bind women candidates find themselves in with regard to gendered assumptions about power. In order to be perceived as competent, she downplayed traditional femininity and was seen as having a “likability problem.” When she teared up in a New Hampshire coffee shop, women voters responded positively to her feminine display of emotion, but it reinforced all of the pundits’ fears and questions about female leadership as tough enough for the Oval Office.

For her part, Palin brought the “mommy wars” and conversations about what it means to be a good mother into the national spotlight, and women across the electorate responded. Palin did not just give voice to a pro-life position on abortion; she embodied it – while also claiming to be a feminist. Cradling her Down syndrome infant at campaign rallies, Palin scrambled the notion that women candidates and voters are pro-choice; she was applauded by Republicans’ social conservative base because she herself had made the choice to carry her pregnancy to term at great personal cost. Palin also presented a new face of the Republican Party: one of a young working mother.

As questions arose about her seriousness and policy knowledge, Palin faced a familiar dilemma both for female candidates and women in society: being dismissed as merely attractive, valued for sexuality but not intelligence. While Sarah Palin was the Voldemort of the 2012 election, “She Who Must Not Be Named,” and dismissed by most pundits as an embarrassing mistake by John McCain, the phenomenon of Palin in the 2008 and 2010 elections might clue her party in to some of what was lacking this year.

In 2012, Republicans have been criticized repeatedly for comments made about women – from Rush Limbaugh’s calling Sandra Fluke a “slut” for seeking insurance coverage of contraception to Senate candidate Todd Akin’s comments about “legitimate rape.” Many of the sound bites in this election season spoke about women as if they were reducible down to their reproductive organs.

In the 21st century, women – conservative or liberal – view themselves as much more than this. In an economy when most families need both working parents just to make ends meet, and 40 percent of women contribute as much or more to their family’s income than men, these essentializing assumptions appear antiquated and tone-deaf. Silence on issues of pay equity only reinforces this perception among women – particularly young women and single moms – that the Republican Party may not see them as the strong and multidimensional citizens that they are.

In 2008, the presence of Palin on the ticket, and her juxtaposition with the narratives of other women like Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama, offered women an opportunity to discuss issues that are complex and relevant to their lives: motherhood, sexuality, work, family, power and femininity. Sarah Palin should not be ignored as simply a failed candidate. Her “hockey mom” persona offered one possible image of power with a womanly face: pit bull aggressiveness with feminine lipstick. Palin may have been our first “third wave” feminist candidate, posing the contradictions of women’s progress and its limits in our political sphere. Palin’s embodiment of those paradoxes did more to energize women voters – both those who loved her and loathed her – than all of Mitt Romney’s “binders full of women.” If only we had had such compelling narratives of women and power in this election.

Jewish Voters Registered The Largest Movement Of Religious Voters To GOP. Alliance With Dem’s Clearly Ending

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on November 15, 2012

The Jewish community of voters is, at long last ( about 70 years from the start of the Roosevelt coalition) moving away from its economic, ultra-liberal and at core emotional attachment to the Democratic Party.

Whilst still behind by an obviously substantial 69% to 30% margin this 39 point difference is a huge improvement on the 60 point gap registered just twelve years ago. As can be seen by the analysis from the 2012 election Jewish voters moved  by 9 points from President Obama whose 78 % to 69% was the largest drop of any recorded movement of faith based voters in the election.

Crosstabs of the religious vote in the 2012 presidential election.

There are a number of reason for this of course and the significance in respect of numbers of voters is low compared to movements in e.g. the Hispanic voters choices as the latter make up a much larger and growing volume of potential voters. However, the fact that Jews are included amongst the higher income and educated groups, and especially in the media/Hollywood, any movement to the right is significant

This influence was set out by Caroline Glick, writing in The Jerusalem Post issued a stern warning about the influence of radical Jewish socialists in America in her article “Defeating The Jewish Alinskyites.”

President Obama’s perceived lukewarm support of Israel would have some effect on Jewish voting preferences and for people with an understanding of economic mechanisms and the rational approach to economics a conservative program might, especially subsequent to the economic crisis, prove more attractive than a program of massive  spending.

But perhaps the major move towards the right by the Jewish community is one of the passing of a generation I posted an article, “Palin Is The Media Liberal Jew’s Mistaken Golem And Primal Scream Therapy”  on why the Jews are, in the main, leftists, and if they can be weaned from “tales learned at granddad’s knee.”

 Michael Walzer at the Jewish focused magazine ‘The Tablet” in his article “The End Of The Jewish Left” seems to think so, but I am not so sanguine. As long as Jews  of influence like Schoenkopf at the far left “Wonkette ” site and others of similar ilk pump out their radical leftism into calcified older minds, and underdeveloped young minds, the battle will be challenging.

It would seem that the new generation whose memories of great-grandparents struggles is appreciated but seen as having little or no relevance to their lives today will be a major source of intellectual, financial and spiritual support for the new conservative Republican Party.

Perhaps too the image of a Star of David wearing Sarah Palin might also be an inspiration and inducement for them to join up to progressive conservatism.

Sarah Palin Asks President Obama “Who is Running Our Country” And Praises McCain’s Tenacity On Benghazi

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on November 14, 2012

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page today:

 

___________________________________________________________

Who is running our country? We’ve got a CIA Director sharing security info with his mistress using an unsecure gmail account. We’ve got the delusional Susan Rice blaming the death of an ambassador on a Youtube video. We’ve got Iran firing on one of our drones a week before the election. We’ve got the White House either ignorant of or covering up all of this.

Who is minding the store? Everywhere we look we see the rank incompetence or corruption of the people who are supposedly running our country and our major institutions. Let’s hope that responsible reporters at Obama’s press conference today ask the right questions Americans deserve answers to.

Here’s my question for the president: As our nation’s chief executive you claim to be unaware of the most important and tragic situations we’re facing; so, as a former chief executive, I’d like to know how long it takes for your staff to tell you things like: “Sir, your CIA Director is under investigation”?

- Sarah Palin

Earlier comment from Governor Palin’s Facebook page:

_______________________________________________________________

Senator John McCain’s expertise, integrity, and conscientious questioning of the Obama administration’s Benghazi fiasco must be listened to and respected. America should be thankful for his passion and intelligence on this all-important national security issue.

Audio:Sarah Steelman (Endorsed By Palin Over Akin) calls out Team Romney for shunning Sarah Palin

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on November 13, 2012

Sarah Steelman was enthusiastically endorsed for the Missouri Senate seat by Sarah Palin. Unfortunately for everyone she lost-with the assistance of McCaskill- to  Akin who turned out to be a disaster, and who lost what should have been a landslide win for the GOP.

Steelman is hugely loyal to Palin as can be heard in her broadcast and her points are indisputable. Quote: The only Senate seat the GOP picked up was the Palin endorsed Deb Fischer’s successful run in Nebraska”

“Maybe the Republican Party should listen to Sarah Palin instead of stiff-arming he.r”

“In fact, how’d that (Palin blocked) convention work out for ya Mr. Romney?”

McCain/Palin Did Better In Ohio Than “Electable” Romney.All Palin Myth’s Utterly Discredited

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on November 13, 2012

Cross posted at M.Joseph Sheppard’s “A Point of View’

Byron York has yet another in the seemingly endless sequence of GOP post mortems up at The Examiner. This one entitled “In Ohio, the GOP puzzles over missing white voters” goes through some of the various explanations for Romney’s loss-you can read it for yourself

AT THIS LINK but to save time, because he, like all the other articles in the same vein, doesn’t come to a conclusion here are the basic facts from his report:

In 2008, John McCain got 2,677,820 votes in Ohio. In 2012, according to a still-unofficial tally from the Ohio Secretary of State, Mitt Romney got 2,583,582. If before the election you had said to any politically involved Ohio Republican that Romney would receive fewer votes than McCain, you would have gotten a blank stare in return. “I would not have believed that,” says Alex Triantafilou, head of the Republican Party in Hamilton County, a critical swing area that includes Cincinnati. “I would have argued strongly that that was not going to be the case.

Here is the money quote from a GOP operative.

 Romney couldn’t fully connect with voters who might lean Republican. “My general impression is that the base, the activists — the people you need — never emotionally invested in Romney the way they emotionally invested in George W. Bush,” says a senior GOP operative involved in the campaign. Maybe not even as much as they invested in McCain.

Yes, indeed, but to expand the concept to its proper conclusion; not as much as they invested in McCain/Palin.

On current figures McCain/Palin would have lost by about 19k votes  (0.7% compared to Romney’s actual loss by 113K 1.7%)  with the same Obama turnout, and most probably would have won as the White turnout would have been higher. So much for ‘The GOP needs a candidate with electability/Palin cost McCain the election” memes, and yet proof again that a true conservative will motivate the base-

Palin 2016, please.

Yahoo Opinion Editorial; “Sarah Palin for President, 2016″

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on November 13, 2012

Here is an excellent opinion piece by Mark Whittington who, surveying the 2016 presidential election field sees Sarah Palin as the best choice for America:

******************************************************************

Mark Whittington

The person I would pick to run for president, on the Republican Party ticket, in 2016 is former Alaska Gov. and former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Considering what happened in 2012, she is the obvious candidate.

Besides having successfully occupied a number of offices, including that of governor of Alaska, Palin has enjoyed an out of proportion degree of power and influence as a private citizen. In both 2010 and 2012, her endorsement has been the difference between victory and defeat for a number of conservative candidates.

But one thing that recommends Palin as a candidate is who her enemies are. She is hated and feared by the left, but also by establishment Republicans. Considering that candidates that the establishment Republicans like, such as Mitt Romney, tend to lose, that last is not a bad recommendation. Palin, unlike Romney, has impeccable conservative credentials.

She has been unfairly maligned as an intellectual light weight, a crazy person, and a mere media star – just like another former governor a generation ago named Ronald Reagan. Like Palin, Reagan was written off by all the smart people. The parallels are almost eerie.
