Sarah Palin: Helping Haiti This Christmas

Helping Haiti this Christmas

by Sarah Palin on Wednesday, December 22, 2010 at 12:00pm

If you are still looking for a cause to donate to this Christmas, allow me to make a suggestion. Todd, Bristol, Greta Van Susteren, and I recently traveled to Haiti to witness first hand the amazing work done by Rev. Franklin Graham’s organization Samaritan’s Purse. Bristol wrote about our experiences on her Facebook page here.

In an effort to fight a deadly cholera outbreak in Haiti, Samaritan’s Purse has flown over a dozen flights carrying vital medical supplies to the two cholera treatment centers it has been running since the start of the outbreak. These centers, run by medical volunteers from the U.S., Canada, and the UK, have helped save the lives of nearly 5,000 patients.

The cholera treatment centers are part of a larger Samaritan’s Purse effort aimed at restoring the human dignity and economic independence of the Haitian people. Since the disastrous earthquake in January of this year, Samaritan’s Purse has spent $29 million on relief, helping more than half a million people by building 10,000 shelters (more than half of the shelters built in Haiti to date have been put up by Samaritan’s Purse); providing non-cholera related medical assistance (including 250 surgeries) to a total of 43,000 patients; providing clean drinking water to more than 75,000 people; and clearing the rubble from 179 building sites. 

None of this would have been possible without the generosity of countless small donors. With all the blessings bestowed upon us in this great country of ours, we also have an opportunity to share those blessings with people who are less fortunate. Samaritan’s Purse is doing exactly that – saving lives one person at a time.

If you’d like to support the great work Samaritan’s Purse does in Haiti and around the world, please visit their website.

Below you’ll find some photos of our Haiti visit taken by Greta Van Susteren. They show what we saw at a temporary housing camp, at the cholera clinics in Bercy and Cité Soleil, and at a meeting where we helped to bring smiles to children’s faces by handing out shoeboxes filled with presents as part of Samaritan’s Purse’s worldwide Operation Christmas Child.

Greta Van Susteren and her husband, John; Franklin Graham and his daughter, Cissy; and Todd, Bristol, and I had the privilege of passing out Samaritan’s Purse gifts to Haitian children. Volunteers with Samaritan’s Purse assembled 8 million Christmas gift boxes to bless children around the world this season!

Nanny State Alert! Mike Huckabee: “On ‘Child Nutrition’ I Must Side With Michelle Obama Over Sarah Palin”

Posted by Gary P Jackson on December 22, 2010

By Gary P Jackson

I saw this little nugget over at Hot Air. At first I was going to let it go, but thought it merited some actual commentary, rather than Allahpundit’s inane musings about potential web hits.

For those unfamiliar with this little back and forth, Michelle Obama has been out there shilling for a “food safety bill” that would all but destroy independent farmers, and even has the ability to restrict [or eliminate] home gardens. In other words it’s another Big Government power grab that destroys a significant amount of Freedom and Liberty. It limits choices, and in a pinch, could even prohibit one from growing their own food for their own consumption.

As part of this Freedom and Liberty destroying package, there is an initiative that would try and force “children” to eat so-called healthy food, while banning everything else. I put “children” in quotations because depending on what democrats are selling, “children” can mean anyone up to 30 years old!

This program of oppression, for those keeping score, has a price tag of around $4.5 billion, to start. [just for Michelle’s little pet project] By the way, thanks to Republicans from states where Big Agriculture makes generous campaign donations, this monstrosity, the “food safety bill,” is now the law of the land.

Here’s the deal. This is one more situation where Big Daddy government, [or should I say Big Nanny] is going to tell you how you MUST live your life.

Rather than allowing parents to educate their own kids, and control what they eat, some little elite in Washington is going to control yet one more part of your life, and there will be nothing you can do about it [unless you are wealthy and send the kids to a private school or home school them]

This is where Sarah Palin comes in. While Michelle Obama has been out there preaching her nonsense, Sarah has been having fun with her. There was talk of banning school bake sales, so Sarah shows up at a school where she was giving a speech, cookies in hand! She’s been tweeting about this stuff for some time, just wearing MO out.

This really got going though after this past Sunday’s airing of Sarah Palin’s Alaska. While getting ready to do a bit of camping, after some white water rafting, Sarah is looking for the goodies to make s’mores, and dedicates them to MO because the First Lady “says we aren’t supposed to have desert

It was hilarious!

Bear in mind now, SP’sAK was filmed in the summer, months ago, when the debate was in full swing.

Of course, there was some buzz around the “cookie incident” at the time, but it seems Sunday’s episode turned into an international story. All one has to do is search Bing to find stories from around the world, mostly progressives losing their minds.How DARE Sarah Palin be against totalitarian rule!

That’s what makes Huckabee’s little “me too” so sad.. This isn’t exactly fresh ground.

Look, childhood obesity is a real problem. But it’s not because we have stupid or lazy parents who can’t teach their kids to eat right, and don’t control what they eat at home. The school cafeteria food is no worse than it was when I was in school over 40 years ago. It was crappy then too.

The problem isn’t calorie intake, or “self control.” At least not for most of these kids. The problem is the schools. When I was in school we had exercise every single day. In grade school we had “recess” but that went from kinda hanging out and running around, to playing organized games like baseball and daily calisthenics. By the time we got to Jr High, we were running our butts off, and sweating in gym class every day, lifting weights, playing baseball, basketball and so on. This was everyone, not just those on the organized school teams. Where I grew up, the many Jr High’s were basically a farm system for the city’s one high school, and it’s football team, which was a powerhouse.

In most schools, this is gone. With progressives in control of education …. recess, PE, whatever you care to call it … is a thing of the past. They are much too busy with social engineering and indoctrination to have even the most rudimentary forms of exercise available.

Now I also know video games and other “sit on your ass” activities are an issue as well, but parents are the ones to kick Jr out of the house and tell them to do something physical, not Big Daddy Government.

Probably wouldn’t hurt the parents to get out there as well.

What Sarah Palin was mocking Michelle Obama for was not about wanting to do something about fat kids. Sarah was wearing Michelle out for daring to suggest the federal government take control, stealing Liberty and Freedom, [and spending billions of our dollars] to achieve her goals.

As someone who values Freedom and Liberty as much as life itself, Sarah, like most of us, simply cannot fathom anyone allowing government to continually encroach on our basic, God-given right of self-determination. We have the God-given right to live our lives as we please, as long as we aren’t interfering with someone else’s God-right to do the same.

Now as parents, we are responsible for our children. We do have the right [and responsibility] to control what they do, as we teach them right from wrong, and impart life’s wisdom on them. This is the right of parents, not the federal government. In fact, reaching into someone’s home, and taking over these most basic rights, by force, is as big of a usurpation of the Constitution as it gets.

Will parents screw up and feed their kids junk food instead of whatever is deemed healthy this week? Sure they will. But it’s their right to.

Now if MO and Big Nanny Huckabee were talking about spending money on an eduction initiative to teach parents and children about healthy choices, that would be a whole ‘nuther ball game. Same is true if they were going to double down and require all schools to have a serious physical exercise program available to anyone who wanted to participate. I’m talking requiring schools to offer, not students to participate. Parents could opt their children out at their discretion. I could get on board with that.

But that’s not what MO and Big Mike support. No, these two, and many more progressives like them, think you are too stupid to live your life without the government telling you every move to make. What to eat. What to wear. What to drive. What kind of light bulbs to use. The list of government intrusion into our lives is endless.

Of course, this is not new territory for Mike Huckabee. He’s been trying to sell himself off as a “conservative” for some time now, both on the 2008 campaign trail, and on his lame Fox News talk show.But it’s all an act.

He talks the talk, at times, and has a lot of people fooled, but his record as Governor of Arkansas is one of a Big Government Statist. A Nanny Stater who makes New York City’s Mayor, Michael Bloomberg,  look like a piker.

Michael D Tanner, of the CATO Institute. wrote a scathing assessment of Huckabee called “The Biggest Big Government Conservative.” Besides pointing out his poor record, scoring a “F” on fiscal issues, Tanner delves into Huckabee’s progressive tendencies. What Karl Rove would call “Compassionate Conservatism” …. but on steroids.

This needs to be a warning to anyone thinking Mike Huckabee should be anything but a talk show host with a talent for so-so base playing.

One of the wonderful things about Sarah Palin is she has a knack for exposing phonies like Mike Huckabee.

I don’t think she actually tries to do this, BTW. Sarah is just someone who walks the walk. She’s also someone who says what she thinks. It’s just her nature as she goes about doing her thing.

It’s the reactions that Sarah causes, to her just living life, that are telling. People constantly expose themselves as less than desirable when they react to her. I can’t explain why this happens so often, but it’s fun to watch, and someday it will be interesting to write an essay cataloging all of the folks who were exposed by Sarah just being Sarah. The piece would be quite long.

The bottom line is this: The federal government has absolutely no right to reach so deeply into one’s life, and control so much of it. Every time they do, a big old chunk of Freedom and Liberty are gone. Gone forever. Liberty lost never returns. [at least not without drastic action]

Sarah Palin, in her own wonderful style, is out there advocating for maximum human Freedom and Liberty. The Freedom and Liberty to enjoy life to it’s fullest, without Big Daddy Government looking over your shoulders and questioning your every move, and sometimes outlawing moves altogether.

When government gets so deeply involved in the minutia of our lives, we loose our Freedom to choose how we live our lives. We lose all of our personal Liberties.

Sarah knows this well, and cautions against runaway government on a daily basis. She advocates daily for personal Freedom and Liberty.

On the other hand, here is Mike Huckabee not being able to help himself. He is a life long Big Government progressive, a Statist, and has the record tom prove it. He, along with most progressives, think the average person is too stupid to care for themselves, and Big Daddy Government must step in and do everything for you, lest you make “bad” choices. [as determined by them] It’s an insult to our Founding Fathers, and the American people.

On a personal note, when it comes time to take advice on fitness and healthy eating, I’d listen to Sarah Palin, a superb athlete whose running prowess landed her a cover story in Runners World [a story so popular it crashed their website] and someone who eats healthy, organic food most of the time, rather than a couple of con artists who, when told to “haul ass”, need to take two loads!

One last thing. In case you are wondering, the dog in the Huckabee family photo is NOT the one who received the “Michael Vick” treatment.

Sarah Palin: It’s Time To Get Tough With Iran

Posted by Gary P Jackson on December 22, 2010

Just as Ronald Reagan once denounced an “evil empire” and looked forward to a time when communism was left on the “ash heap of history,” we should look forward to a future where the twisted ideology and aggressive will to dominate of Khomeini and his successors are consigned to history’s dustbin.

~ Sarah Palin

By Gary P Jackson

Sarah Palin has penned a strong op-ed for USA Today laying out the case we need to get serious with Iran:

Iran continues to defy the international community in its drive to acquire nuclear weapons. Arab leaders in the region rightly fear a nuclear-armed Iran. We suspected this before, but now we know for sure because of leaked diplomatic cables. King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia “frequently exhorted the U.S. to attack Iran to put an end to its nuclear weapons program,” according to these communications. Officials from Jordan said the Iranian nuclear program should be stopped by any means necessary. Officials from the United Arab Emirates and Egypt saw Iran as evil, an “existential threat” and a sponsor of terrorism. If Iran isn’t stopped from obtaining nuclear weapons, it could trigger a regional nuclear arms race in which these countries would seek their own nuclear weapons to protect themselves.

That wouldn’t be the only catastrophic consequence for American interests in the Middle East. Our credibility and reputation would suffer a serious blow if Iran succeeds in producing its own nuclear weapons after we’ve been claiming for years that such an event could not and would not be tolerated. A nuclear-armed and violently anti-American Iran would be an enormous threat to us and to our allies. Israel in particular would face the gravest threat to its existence since its creation. Iran’s leaders have repeatedly called for Israel’s destruction, and Iran already possesses missiles that can reach Israel. Once these missiles are armed with nuclear warheads, nothing could stop the mullahs from launching a second Holocaust. It’s only a matter of time before Iran develops missiles that could reach U.S. territory.

Even without nuclear weapons, Iran has provided arms used to kill American soldiers and Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan. Iran is also the biggest state sponsor of terrorism in the world. It has shielded al-Qaeda leaders, including one of Osama bin Laden’s sons. Imagine how much worse it would be for us if this regime acquired nuclear weapons.

This is just the warm up. Read the entire op-ed here.

Sarah goes on to take President Obama to task for not taking a strong and principled stance on Iran. She also notes we must stand behind those in Iran who seek Freedom and Liberty from the oppressive regime.

As we all remember [and watched in horror] as the Obama regime actually stood by the Iranian government, while it slaughtered protesters who attempted to rise up and gain a little Freedom and Liberty for themselves. Not exactly one of America’s finest hours.

Taking tough, decisive action against Iran is a must. We simply cannot allow the current situation to continue. Iran is the world’s leading state sponsor of terror, and now they are sending nuclear capable missiles to Venezuela. Missiles capable of reaching the United States. Mad man Hugo Chavez will most certainly use these missiles to destabilize the region, and they could be used as first strike weapons against the U.S.

Look, there is no doubt President Sarah Palin would be just as tough on Iran as Ronald Reagan was on the Soviet Union. There wouldn’t be any missiles heading to Venezuela, that’s for damned sure!

The problem is, we can’t wait two years for President Palin to take office. We need action and we need action now. The Obama regime doesn’t exactly instill much confidence, but we can most certainly put pressure on Congress to in turn pressure the regime to act. If you don’t already have your Senators and Congressmen on speed dial, now is the time to hit those phone lines and create a stir.

This is not just an issue of our national security, it’s an issue of world security.

Iran must be dealt with and dealt with now.

Investor’s Business Daily: Hey GOP Leadership, When Sarah Palin Speaks, You Need To Listen

Posted by Gary P Jackson on December 22, 2010

The lesson: When Mama Grizzly roars, maybe the Beltway know-it-alls should listen.

By Gary P Jackson

The editors over at Investor’s Business Daily have penned an editorial praising the wisdom of Sarah Palin, and how she made the right choices of candidates to back during the primaries and general election:

Palin’s Vindication

Congress: The GOP establishment — and some conservative pundits — ridiculed Sarah Palin for backing rough-edged Tea Party challengers over establishment figures. Recent congressional votes prove her right.

Read the editorial here.

Even though those mentioned: Christine O’Donnell and Sharron Miller, lost [thanks to the GOP elites, in our opinion] and who knows how the Miller/Murkowski contest will shake out, Sarah made bold choices to back principled Common Sense Conservatives.

Of course, Sarah backed 94 candidates for local, state, and national office, 63 of which won. That’s a record anyone would envy.

As for the Republican leadership, especially the Senate leadership, well, let’s just say their record of success was nil. The Republican group responsible for recruiting and backing candidates picked the wrong horse in almost every primary. Thankfully most were defeated before they had a chance to join pathetic RINOs like Mike Castle and Lisa Murkowski.

The GOP would do well to seek Sarah Palin’s council in the future, on pretty much every issue. Their batting record would improve greatly.

Sarah Palin And American Exceptionalism

Posted by Gary P Jackson on December 22, 2010

By Gary P Jackson

Michael Prell over at American Thinker has penned a great read talking about Sarah Palin and how both she, and her TLC show, Sarah Palin’s Alaska, are a celebration of American exceptionalism.

Watching “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” is like stepping back in time — not to a time when Americans lived off the land and the sea, but to a time when our desire to be #1 was celebrated and not scorned.

A recent episode of “SP’s Alaska” was about Sarah Palin’s oldest son Track trying to prove to his father Todd that he was worthy of taking over the #1 fishing site in Bristol Bay. As Sarah Palin said, “Todd has the #1 site in this area…so Track has to work very, very hard and prove to Todd that he deserves to fish the #1 site.

Let us pause for a moment to take that in. A young man working hard to prove that he is worthy of being #1.

There was a time in America when young people were taught that being #1 was a good thing, and that anyone could grow up to be president, which is the #1 position of power in the world. Now America is led by a president who bows down to the world and apologizes for America’s power, while criticizing powerful and successful Americans at home, scorning them as “fat cats,” and saying that “at a certain point, you’ve made enough money.”

Contrast President Obama’s attitude about success to that of his biggest challenger, Sarah Palin, who said in TLC’s “Alaska” that “[i]t’s very important to remember that the more successful fisherman is going to be the harder-working fisherman. The harder you work, the more money you’re going to make, the more fish you’re going to be able to pick. That, again, is a life lesson that so many should, and could, be learning.

Continue reading this great article here.

Prell is right, of course. Growing up, we sort of took American exceptionalism for granted. I mean it was common knowledge that Americans had a strong work ethic and a desire to be the very best they could be. It’s was something that seemed to be embedded in our DNA.

We celebrated the great baseball players, the championship race car drivers, the fastest runners, and so forth. American life was all about competition. All about the desire to continually improve one’s personal best, whether it be in sports, at work, or just life in general. We found satisfaction in this. Just knowing we had done as well as we could. It’s this sort of spirit that built America and made it great.

Thanks to those who seek equality of outcome rather than equality of opportunity, it’s became almost taboo to speak of American exceptionalism. Our own President downplays it at every turn. He appears almost ashamed of it.

It’s the progressive [read communist] mentality that seeks to make absolutely everything equal. Everyone gets an equal share of money, food, possessions, and so on, in the progressive’s utopian dreams.

The problem is, there is no way to give everyone equal talent.

Our Founding Fathers realized this, and sought to create a system that guaranteed everyone an equal start. Everyone an equal opportunity. A level playing field. That’s as good as it gets. It’s the most one can hope for.

It’s why for over 200 years people have risked death itself to come to America and take part in this grand experiment. This uniquely American experience. These immigrants have only added to the great American exceptionalism.

Of course this distresses progressives. There is something in their DNA that causes them to have unrealistic goals. Their ideology demands that everyone must have an equal outcome, even as they steal everyone’s right to an equal opportunity. Their entire psyche is backwards.

By allowing man to have an equal opportunity, a level playing field, you allow him to have the Freedom and Liberty to succeed against all other odds. You allow the individual to independently have the opportunity to reach the highest levels their talent and desire will allow.

The story of America is filled with men and women who grew up poor, and had only the most basic of education, if that, who went on to become some of the most successful in society. Some of our greatest leader and captains of industry stared out at the lowest levels of every measure. Through nothing more than hard work and a desire to succeed, despite all odds and obstacles before them, they chose to persevere. They never let anyone tell them they couldn’t do something. Never let anyone put artificial limitations on them.

These success stories, though common in America, are quite rare elsewhere. The equal opportunity America affords one and all is what makes the difference. 

Contrast that with the progressive ideology that says every one gets a trophy for showing up, and we shouldn’t keep score. What progressives are doing, early on, is creating the feeling that one can’t compete. One can’t succeed, so why even try.

It’s a cynical, and frankly, a pretty cruel thing to do to our children. This nonsense trains them to want, even demand, equal outcome all through their life, whether they work their tails off, and constantly improve their abilities, or stand around and take up space.

The real evil behind this mentality though is that, instead of building less than successful people up, encouraging them to reach higher and higher, it tears successful people down. It brings the successful down to the level of those who, for whatever reason, are not.

By demonizing the successful, and seeking to redistribute the fruits of their successes, in order to make sure everyone has an equal portion of success, you literally de-incentivise the very success you wish to take from some, and give to others. [in a completely arbitrary fashion]

Seriously, why would someone work as hard as they could, only to have a portion of the fruits of their labor forcibly taken away and given to someone else? Pretty soon, even the most ambitious person looks around and realizes that working harder than anyone around you, or just showing up and keeping a seat warm, pays
 exactly the same.

There’s a lot to be said for doing your absolute best every single day, for no other reason than personal satisfaction, but at some point even the most highly motivated get to thinking: “What’s the point?”

This sort of thing is why other nations, and their people, have failed. Collapsed.

We’ve been here before. History always repeats itself because most people fail to study it, and learn from their mistakes. For all of the American exceptionalism that is very real, Americans have the attention span of a gnat, with a collective memory to match.

The downward spiral in America started in the late 1960s, when the radicals who now run government, and shape policy, were nothing more than a bunch of nuts protesting in the streets. Although it started with Johnson, from Nixon through Carter we really lost faith in government, and to a large extent, ourselves. By the time radical progressive Jimmy Carter came to power, America was in a malaise. People figured America’s best days were behind us. Sad sack Carter did everything he could do to reinforce this feeling, as did Hollywood. We were in real trouble.

Then came an exceptional man. A man who celebrated America and it’s exceptionalism. A man who came to embody it. A man who saw America as that Shining City on a Hill. Ronald Reagan, a man who was born of modest means, and didn’t go to the “right” college, worked his way through life to become one of our greatest leaders.

Reagan’s exuberance, his love for not only America, but the American people as well, inspired us all. Reagan reminded us all of why America has always been the most successful nation the world has ever known. His love and celebration of American exceptionalism inspired the entire nation to pick itself up, dust itself off, and get to the job at hand.

It wasn’t easy. Through Reagan’s first term, things were dicey. But his optimism [and hard work getting the right policies in place] kept everyone inspired and focused. In the end, America would see the longest period of economic growth in our history.

Today America is in the doldrums once again . This time it feels more deliberate though. Carter was and is a radical ideologue, but his incompetence caused a lot of our problems. Now the case can certainly be made that Barack Obama’s incompetence, which is a product of inexperience as a leader, as well as immaturity, is at the bottom of all of this, but that wouldn’t be entirely true, or even fair.

No, our problems started when the democrats took control of Congress in 2007. The leadership chosen are the most radical of what is already a radically leftist group. Their overreaching laws, and desire to spend trillions we don’t have, as well as their communistic tendencies to make everyone “equal” have got us where we are. Obama is just the ribbon and bow around the horrific package.

America has once again lost confidence in government, and even now, after a serious political re-alignment, wonders if the new Congress will be much different than the old. If what we are seeing out of the GOP Senate leadership, that WON’T be changed in the new Congress, the fears that it will be business as usual, seem pretty well justified.

That brings us back to Sarah Palin and her celebration of American exceptionalism. Her knowledge that
We the People” [not government] are the cause of American greatness.

America, and the American people are successful and exceptional not because of government, but in spite of it!

Of course the media, and others who have their own agendas, will try and tell you it’s “corny” at best, or motivated by her desire to make money, at worst. Pretty much the same thing was said about Ronald Reagan in his day. How could someone simply love America and just want the best for all concerned? That doesn’t fit the template the progressives and corrupt media created.

One doesn’t have to spend more than a few minutes watching Sarah Palin, reading Sarah Palin, or listening to Sarah Palin, to understand her love for America and her faith in the American people is real.

Sarah also sees America as that Shining City on a Hill. She understands that longing in the American spirit to be the best that you can be. You hear it in her speeches and see it as she lives life. You feel it deep down when she talks about her son, Trig, who faces many challenges that most will never know. She has faith that, challenges be damned, her son will lead a full and successful life.That he will meet the challenges head on.

There’s a reason why Sarah inspires so many. Like Reagan before her, she simply refuses to believe America, and Americans are anything less than the cream of the crop. She understands that indomitable spirit that made America the greatest nation on earth, and the American people so successful.

The desire to be the very best of the best, and for all Americans to be the same, is in HER DNA. 

Of course, as a nation, we need more than someone who believes in us. We need someone with the temperament and ability to lead. As we search for a new elected leader, we need someone with the executive experience, and record of accomplishment befitting the highest office.

Thankfully, Sarah Palin has always practiced the American exceptionalism she speaks of. Like Reagan,Sarah comes from a modest background and went to the “wrong” college. But as we see weekly on Sarah Palin’s Alaska, she was, and is, surrounded by those who are grounded in solid principles and themselves the very embodiment of the American spirit.

Sarah started out as a working mom who just wanted to be involved in the local PTA to make sure her kids had the best education possible. That simple act, one that millions of moms have made throughout our history, has taken this remarkable woman to the top of the charts as a national leader. Someone on equal footing with the President of the United States, when it comes to influence and profile.

We aren’t sure what the future holds for Sarah. [Though we know what we want it to!] But as an inspirational leader for our time, no one can compare. By celebrating the American spirit and American exceptionalism in everything she does, Sarah Palin is making America better and inspiring others to do the same.

As we celebrate American exceptionalism, much to the chagrin of progressives everywhere, let’s also celebrate our Founders, who gave us a wonderful system where the cream can rise to the top, and exceptional leaders can come from the most unlikely of places, like the last frontier, Alaska.

Census Bureau Electoral College 2012 Map Shows Palin’s Eleven Vote Win

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on December 22, 2010

The final 2012 Census Bureau Electoral College adjustments are now in and we can take a preview snapshot of what the most likely result will be for Sarah Palin. With the population shifts and a net Republican states gain of 6 electoral votes over the 2008 allocation Palin would assume the presidency with an eleven electoral vote margin.

There is room therefore to lose Colorada or Iowa and still win comfortably.
