Palin: We Need More Lifeguards Like Reagan

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 25, 2011

Governor Palin’s article about President Ronald Reagan at USA Today:

Palin on Reagan: He was ‘America’s lifeguard

By Sarah Palin

I had the privilege of coming of age during the era of Ronald Reagan. I like to think of him as America’s lifeguard. As a teenager, Ronald Reagan saved 77 lives as a lifeguard on the Rock River, which ran through his hometown of Dixon, Ill. The day he was inaugurated in 1981, a local radio announcer famously declared, “The Rock River flows for you tonight, Mr. President.” The image of the lifeguard seems to represent what Reagan was to America and to the freedom-loving people of the world. He lifted our country up at a time when we were in the depths of economic, cultural and spiritual malaise. We were told that we must accept that the era of American greatness was over; but with his optimism and common sense, President Reagan held up a mirror to the American soul to remind us of our exceptionalism.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Reagan saw that ‘we are all patriots’ 

HOUSE SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER: A man who shaped our times 

SEN. JOHN MCCAIN: An ‘unshakable faith’ in America 

MITT ROMNEY: A legacy of optimism, strength 

SAM DONALDSON: My respect for Reagan only grew 

LEON ARON: His moral leadership won the Cold War 

LOU CANNON: He ‘tempered conviction with compromise’ 

EDWIN MEESE: His vision revived the spirit of America 

Reagan showed us that despite a deep recession, there could still be morning in America. He could speak to the economic troubles facing ordinary Americans because he understood what it was like to live through a Great Depression where families scraped to get by. And yet, he saw us recover from our Great Depression, and under his leadership we experienced the greatest peacetime economic boom in our history. He could speak to our fears that our years as a superpower were over, because he understood what it was like to see America at war and really fear that we might lose. And yet, he saw us win two world wars, and under his leadership we won the Cold War without firing a single shot. Reagan’s belief in American greatness was rooted in historic fact, not blind optimism. He was a sunny optimist because he knew that our best days are yet to come.

Today, when we hear the worry in the voices of Americans wondering where the jobs will be for our children and grandchildren and wondering if the world will be safe and prosperous in the years to come, we should remember Reagan’s faith in our inherent heroism and greatness. When we see people around the globe looking to the White House for leadership, we should remember Reagan’s steel spine. He understood America’s purpose in this world and what we need to do to secure liberty. As Margaret Thatcher said of him, “He sought to mend America’s wounded spirit, to restore the strength of the free world, and to free the slaves of communism.” He sought those things and he succeeded.

This year, as we celebrate the centennial of Reagan’s birth, let’s remember the lifeguard from the Rock River who rescued us with his optimism and common sense. We need more lifeguards like him.

Sarah Palin was the governor of Alaska and the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2008.

Governor Palin at Lubbock Christian School Fundraiser

Posted by Adrienne Ross on January 25, 2011

Last night Governor Palin spoke at the Lubbock Christian School and, according to Alyssa Dizon of Avalanche-Journal, received a warm reception. She writes:

Despite the heightened level of security concerns, the Lubbock Christian School fundraiser featuring Sarah Palin garnered ample support from area residents and created a unique connection between Alaska and Texas.

Palin, former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate, addressed about 1,400 people Monday night during LCS’ annual fundraiser at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.

Palin said Texas and Alaska are alike because they are “good beacons of freedom” and share similar values and work ethic, said Kristen Vander-Plas, president of the Lubbock Christian University College Republicans.

She said she was impressed by Palin’s willingness to go forward with her fundraiser appearance with added security despite the recent shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona.

Many in the audience were LCS alumni, Vander-Plas said, and the audience as a whole was receptive to Palin’s message as was evident in their frequent applause and cheers.

Some, like Bob Wood, were drawn to the event through sheer curiosity.

He said he came to hear Palin although he does not always agree with what she says.

Others were avid Palin fans wanting to see the woman who made a huge splash in American politics in 2008.

“I believe in Sarah Palin and what she represents for America,” said Linda Hunt of San Angelo, who won free tickets for the event. “Her enthusiasm, her love for America, her honesty and her core values of representing the people and not just special interests.”

Still, LCS alumni and sponsors said the main purpose of the evening was raising money for the school — having Palin present was an added bonus.

Kimberly Chitwood of Minnix Commercial Construction said someone as well-recognized as Palin at the annual fundraiser is a rare opportunity to attract people and support for the school.

“I thought it’d be interesting and we enjoy Sarah Palin,” said Ross Shamburger, who bought tickets for the fundraiser on the first day they were sold. “It’s an exciting, great opportunity for LCS. Hopefully, they’ll raise a lot of money.”

Palin and Obama take on Archie in new comic book

Posted by loricalabrese on January 25, 2011

Sarah Palin went head-to-head against Barack Obama in NBA Jam and now the two are teaming up in the upcoming edition of the “Archie” comic book, reports the New York Daily News.

The two bring a bipartisan ending to the Riverdale High School election in the unlikely storyline of Archie No. 617, in stores Wednesday. The rivals bridge their partisan divide and descend on Riverdale High School to straighten out the mess left behind when Archie and Reggie each claim one of the politician’s support in a student body election.

“It really gets back to the idea of ‘can’t we all get along,’ “Archie Comics co-CEO Jon Goldwater told the New York Daily News. “Both [Palin and Obama] want what’s best for America, so we came up as an idea of how we put the President and the woman who I consider the de facto head of the Republican Party in a story set in Riverdale, which is an inclusive place where everybody gets along.”

Both Obama and Palin have been popular figures to grace comic books, since, as public figures, they’re not owed any royalties. In fact, in recent months, issues of “Steam Punk Sarah” – a parody with Sarah Palin as a terminator — and “President Evil” – starring Obama in a Resident Evil sendup, have been big sellers.

State Of The Union: If Obama Has Shifted To The Right-Then We Might As Well Have A Real Republican,Like Palin, In 2012

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on January 25, 2011

America is returning to the natural equilibrium of being a center-right country after electing a leftist president due to a most unusual chain or circumstances. The majority of presidents have been from the right apart from an occasional interregnum due to wars usually.

The Bush years were no exception to this general rule and the wars plus a rabid ultra-liberal media running unchecked foster a climate of radical youth activism which helped elected a Democratic party Congress prior to the Obama ascendancy

However, with Bush and Cheney gone and the public having had two years to many of leftist rule, the election in 2010 of a Republican House, and a majority of Governorships, was the first step in returning America to its natural state of things. The Senate and presidency in 2012 (along with the Supreme Court majority) will be the final act.

President Obama is “triangulating” as indicated in his State of the Union address-moving to the center. This is as per President Clinton’s example-frankly, he has no choice of course, as he can’t get any legislation through Congress and, not being an idiot, has seen which way the wind is blowing as regards any re-election chances he may have.

But this beggars the question, why in 2012 should the public elect a pseudo-Republican (which his erstwhile “progressive supporters” heartily agree he is, when America can have a real Republican president, like Palin for example, who can get conservative legislation through a conservative Congress?

This should be the overriding question of the 2012 election-it seems unlikely that Obama’s coat tails would be long enough to bring in a Democratic House after the shellacking of 2010 even if he was re-elected so-why bother re-electing him at all?

Palin, As Popular As Ever Even With Left’s Unprecedented Attacks,Gets Roaring Reception In Sold Out Address In Texas-

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on January 25, 2011

The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reports that Sarah Palin’s address to a packed audience at a fundraiser for the Lubbock Christian School was greeted by “frequent applause and cheers”.

In the full report detailed below the standout quote from an attendee who was asked what impressed about Palin is:

“Her enthusiasm, her love for America, her honesty and her core values of representing the people and not just special interests.”

This reception, coming hard on the heels of one of the most intense campaigns of villification and now slander against Palin by the mainstream liberal media, proves that the public are not taken in by the left’s vile antics.

This was further reinforced by the latest Rasmussen poll which shows Palin actually having risen in favor as a major contender Republican choice for president.

The day will come when the media will have to repay the terrible debt they are running up with the American public in lost credibility-in the meantime palinsails onwards to her positive destiny basking in the deserved adulation of audiences like those in Lubbock today.

UPDATE;Rasmussen confirms; [Latest Poll Shows Palin/Huckabee At 40% For GOP Nomination-Romney at 17%. Clear Sailing For Palin]

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on January 25, 2011

Further to the Washington Post poll as detailed below which shows the Palin/Huckabee vote at 40% and Romney at 17% the latest Rasmussen poll confirms the general trend.

Rasmussen has Palin/Huckabee at 36% and Romney at 24%. According to Conservatives4Palin Rasmussen is using a different set of internals which disfavor Palin/Huckabee as they poll a lower number of self described Evangelicals.

Even so, and allowing for this alternative methodology the result is still the same margin of error wise. If Huckabee does not run then Palin has a substantial lead and, based on the three opening states primaries; Iowa/New Hampshire/South Carolina, she should win 2 out of three and be well on her way to the nomination.

Interestingly, since the Rasmussen poll of November 2009 Romney has stayed the same at 24%, Palin is up one to 19% and Huckabee has dropped 12% to 17%. This shows that, even with all the mass of negative publicity the left generated against Palin after the Arizona tragedy the people who really count,t he Republican voters, still view her, and her moral foundations, which they view as Huckabee also sharing, unchanged ,and what they want in their candidate.

*************************************************
AS POSTED PREVIOUSLY

In a new Washington Post poll
21% of respondents advised they would support Huckabee 19% Palin and 17% Romney as detailed below.

No one else got into double figures and the latest left wing media selections for the GOP of the month Thune and Daniels hardly rated at all.

The 40% shared between Palin and Huckabee-a statistical tie are the only poll results that matter at this point in time for the 2012 election. The polls showing Palin 10 points behind Obama for example, two years out are meaningless as the Reagan polling below shows.

All that matters for Palin is,should she choose to run, how well will she do in the early primaries. Clearly, despite all the massive negative left wing media attacks she is still very popular with the base (80% in polls).

Polling has also shown that should Huckabee choose not to run, a strong possibility, then Palin is his supporters next choice. The numbers then, at this point, and should Huckabee not run, are very much on her side. Even Andrew Sullivan in a moment of lucidity when the PDS uterus fog lifted, said this week that he thinks the “nomination is still hers to lose” even given the media attacks and supposed general low poll rating.
