Gov. Palin: Obama’s the King of Debt (Updated)

Posted by joshpainter on February 17, 2011

– by Josh Painter
*
In a question-and-answer session before a packed crowd at a Long Island business group today, Sarah Palin criticized President Obama’s budget plan, saying that it keeps the nation on “the wrong road”:

“I think that’s an overstatement to even say that we are even making a dent” in the national debt,” Palin said. “It’s not even really a dent…(it’s) a little thumbprint there.”

She added, “It amazed me the other day watching the president ….tell the American public, and the press is letting him get away with saying, his new (plan)….doesn’t add to the national debt.”

She added, “That’s not true. His spending plan does add to the national debt…that is the wrong road to be on. That is not what’s going to cure the economic ills in our country.”

Gov. Palin also told the Long Island Association that Congress shouldn’t vote to raise the debt ceiling without reforming entitlements and slashing the federal budget:

“All that’s going to do is create this allowance for more big spenders to get in there… It doesn’t necessarily have to result in a government shutdown.”

Palin appeared to link the budget and the debt ceiling votes, saying that Congress could refuse to raise the ceiling without causing a shutdown.

“What President is doing and what this administration is supporting is America being on a road to ruin unless we do take seriously this monumental debt,” she said.

The former GOP vice presidential candidate said that while new enrollees in federal entitlement programs should expect lower benefits, current enrollees should not be penalized.

Palin also criticized the White House press corps for, she said, asking soft questions of Obama.

“I had to throw in there a little criticism about the press, because that’s sort of what I do,” she said.

Updates

On Egypt, via Politico:

“We also have to be very wary of who it is that is being invited ot the table to discuss how the reform in that country is taking place,” Palin said. “I’m talking about the Muslim Brotherhood,” she said, deploring what she saw as “almost an invitation to them to sit at the table and talk.”

[…]

Palin also appeared to raise the specter of a nuclear-armed, Islamist run Egypt, and said that American military intervention there should be the “very last option.”

Katrina Trinko at NRO’s The Corner:

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin isn’t ready to commit to a presidential run, but she indicated that she might decide soon, citing the need to connect with individual voters.

“Nothing is more effective than being actually there with the people in the diner, shaking hands,” Palin said during an interview today conducted by Long Island Association president Kevin Law at a luncheon sponsored by the group.

“I’d be the first to not necessarily recommend a short amount of time,” she remarked, citing the four days she had to prepare for the national scene as the vice presidential candidate. “Four days isn’t a whole lot of time to be prepared. It’s not even time enough to pack a bag. That’s why sometimes you have to borrow a wardrobe, and then you get crucified for borrowing a wardrobe for six weeks on the trail,” she wryly remarked, alluding to the uproar when it was discovered that clothes for Palin and her family during the campaign had cost $150,000.

But Palin cautioned that her recent decisions to appoint political strategist Michael Glassner as her PAC’s chief of staff shouldn’t be seen as a sign of presidential ambitions.

“I am still thinking about it [a presidential run], certainly haven’t made up my mind. Hired a chief of staff because, to tell you the truth, Todd’s getting kind of tired of doing it all for me,” Palin answered. “Just in the past couple of weeks we’ve been so doggone busy, that Todd has finally said look, I do have a few things I need to do . . . so we hired a chief of staff for practical, logistical reasons.”

Jeff Zeleny at the NY Times’ The Caucus blog:

In a luncheon appearance before the Long Island Association, which bills itself as the state’s largest business organization, Ms. Palin engaged in an animated exchange as she took questions about current affairs, her worldview and, of course, her political future. She said that she was still weighing whether to join the 2012 Republican presidential race, but said voters craved an unconventional candidate.

“People are ready for our governmental establishment to be shaken up,” Ms. Palin said, adding that if she decided to become a candidate, she would campaign aggressively face-to-face with voters, not simply from a distance. “In a heated primary, it allows for some great debate – very heated discourse – all those things we need in order for those voters to decide.”

At the conclusion of more than an hour of discussion, Ms. Palin did not offer a definitive answer about whether she would be a candidate:

“I’m not saying it’s going to be me offering my name up in the name of service. There is so much to be considered, but I certainly believe that this is going to be an unconventional political cycle.”

[…]

When asked why she opposed all types of gun control – with the moderator openly disagreeing with her – she said that the “bad guys” aren’t going to follow the laws, anyway.

And as she talked about the escalating price of gas and groceries, she said, “It’s no wonder Michelle Obama is telling everybody you better breast-feed your baby – yeah, you better – because the price of milk is so high right now!”

As the crowd broke into laughter, she added, “And may that not be the takeaway, please, of this speech.”

Transcript: Sarah Palin’s Resignation Speech

By WBUR News & Wire Services

Jul 27, 2009, 10:04 AM

FAIRBANKS, Alaska — The Alaska governor’s Web site posted this transcript of Sarah Palin’s resignation speech on Friday, July 3.

Hi Alaska, I appreciate speaking directly TO you, the people I serve, as your Governor.

People who know me know that besides faith and family, nothing’s more important to me than our beloved Alaska. Serving her people is the greatest honor I could imagine.

I want Alaskans to grasp what can be in store for our state. We were purchased as a territory because a member of President Abe Lincoln’s cabinet, William Seward, providentially saw in this great land, vast riches, beauty, strategic placement on the globe, and opportunity. He boldly looked “North to the Future”. But he endured such ridicule and mocking for his vision for Alaska, remember the adversaries scoffed, calling this “Seward’s Folly”. Seward withstood such disdain as he chose the uncomfortable, unconventional, but RIGHT path to secure Alaska, so Alaska could help secure the United States.
People who know me know that besides faith and family, nothing’s more important to me than our beloved Alaska.

Alaska’s mission – to contribute to America. We’re strategic IN the world as the air crossroads OF the world, as a gatekeeper of the continent. Bold visionaries knew this – Alaska would be part of America’s great destiny.

Our destiny to be reached by responsibly developing our natural resources. This land, blessed with clean air, water, wildlife, minerals, AND oil and gas. It’s energy! God gave us energy.

So to serve the state is a humbling responsibility, because I know in my soul that Alaska is of such import, for America’s security, in our very volatile world. And you know me by now, I promised even four years ago to show MY independence… no more conventional “politics as usual”.

And we are doing well! My administration’s accomplishments speak for themselves. We work tirelessly for Alaskans.

We aggressively and responsibly develop our resources because they were created to be used to better our world… to HELP people… and we protect the environment and Alaskans (the resource owners) foremost with our policies.

Here’s some of the things we’ve done:

We created a petroleum integrity office to oversee safe development. We held the line FOR Alaskans on Point Thomson – and finally for the first time in decades – they’re drilling for oil and gas.

We have AGIA, the gasline project – a massive bi-partisan victory (the vote was 58 to 1!) – also succeeding as intended – protecting Alaskans as our clean natural gas will flow to energize us, and America, through a competitive, pro-private sector project. This is the largest private sector energy project, ever. THIS is energy independence.

And ACES – another bipartisan effort – is working as intended and industry is publicly acknowledging its success. Our new oil and gas “clear and equitable formula” is so Alaskans will no longer be taken advantage of. ACES incentivizes NEW exploration and development and JOBS that were previously not going to happen with a monopolized North Slope oil basin.

We cleaned up previously accepted unethical actions; we ushered in bi-partisan Ethics Reform.

We also slowed the rate of government growth, we worked with the Legislature to save billions of dollars for the future, and I made no lobbyist friends with my hundreds of millions of dollars in budget vetoes… but living beyond our means today is irresponsible for tomorrow.

We took government out of the dairy business and put it back into private-sector hands – where it should be.

We provided unprecedented support for education initiatives, and with the right leadership, finally filled long-vacant public safety positions. We built a sub-Cabinet on Climate Change and took heat from Outside special interests for our biologically-sound wildlife management for abundance.

We broke ground on the new prison.

And we made common sense conservative choices to eliminate personal luxuries like the jet, the chef, the junkets… the entourage.

And the Lt. Governor and I said “no” to our pay raises. So much success in this first term – and with this success I am proud to take credit… for hiring the right people! Our goal was to achieve a gasline project, more fair oil and gas valuation, and ethics reform in four years. We did it in two. It’s because of the people… good public servants surrounding the Governor’s office, with servants’ hearts and astounding work ethic… THEY are Alaska’s success!

We are doing well! I wish you’d hear MORE from the media of your state’s progress and how we tackle Outside interests – daily – SPECIAL interests that would stymie our state. Even those debt-ridden stimulus dollars that would force the heavy hand of federal government into our communities with an “all-knowing attitude” – I have taken the slings and arrows with that unpopular move to veto because I know being right is better than being popular. Some of those dollars would harm Alaska and harm America – I resisted those dollars because of the obscene national debt we’re forcing our children to pay, because of today’s Big Government spending; it’s immoral and doesn’t even make economic sense!

Another accomplishment – our Law Department protected states’ rights – TWO huge U.S. Supreme Court reversals came down against that liberal Ninth Circuit, deciding in OUR state’s favor over the last two weeks. We’re protectors of our Constitution – federalists protect states’ rights as mandated in 10th amendment.

But you don’t hear much of the good stuff in the press anymore, do you?

Some say things changed for me on August 29th last year – the day John McCain tapped me to be his running-mate – I say others changed.

Let me speak to that for a minute.

Political operatives descended on Alaska last August, digging for dirt. The ethics law I championed became their weapon of choice. Over the past nine months I’ve been accused of all sorts of frivolous ethics violations – such as holding a fish in a photograph, wearing a jacket with a logo on it, and answering reporters’ questions.

Every one – all 15 of the ethics complaints have been dismissed. We’ve won! But it hasn’t been cheap – the State has wasted THOUSANDS of hours of YOUR time and shelled out some two million of YOUR dollars to respond to “opposition research” – that’s money NOT going to fund teachers or troopers – or safer roads. And this political absurdity, the “politics of personal destruction” … Todd and I are looking at more than half a million dollars in legal bills in order to set the record straight. And what about the people who offer up these silly accusations? It doesn’t cost them a dime so they’re not going to stop draining public resources – spending other peoples’ money in their game.

It’s pretty insane – my staff and I spend most of our day dealing with THIS instead of progressing our state now. I know I promised no more “politics as usual,” but THIS isn’t what anyone had in mind for ALASKA.

If I have learned one thing: LIFE is about choices!

And one chooses how to react to circumstances. You can choose to engage in things that tear down, or build up. I choose to work very hard on a path for fruitfulness and productivity. I choose NOT to tear down and waste precious time; but to build UP this state and our country, and her industrious, generous, patriotic, free people!

Life is too short to compromise time and resources… it may be tempting and more comfortable to just keep your head down, plod along, and appease those who demand: “Sit down and shut up”, but that’s the worthless, easy path; that’s a quitter’s way out. And a problem in our country today is apathy. It would be apathetic to just hunker down and “go with the flow”.

Nah, only dead fish “go with the flow”.

No. Productive, fulfilled people determine where to put their efforts, choosing to wisely utilize precious time… to BUILD UP.

And there is such a need to BUILD up and FIGHT for our state and our country. I choose to FIGHT for it! And I’ll work hard for others who still believe in free enterprise and smaller government; strong national security for our country and support for our troops; energy independence; and for those who will protect freedom and equality and LIFE… I’ll work for and campaign for those PROUD to be American, and those who are INSPIRED by our ideals and won’t deride them.

I WILL support others who seek to serve, in or out of office, for the RIGHT reasons, and I don’t care what party they’re in or no party at all. Inside Alaska – or Outside Alaska.

But I won’t do it from the Governor’s desk.

I’ve never believed that I, nor anyone else, needs a title to do this – to make a difference… to HELP people. So I choose, for my State and my family, more “freedom” to progress, all the way around… so that Alaska may progress… I will not seek re-election as Governor.

And so as I thought about this announcement that I wouldn’t run for re-election and what it means for Alaska, I thought about how much fun some governors have as lame ducks… travel around the state, to the Lower 48 (maybe), overseas on international trade – as so many politicians do. And then I thought – that’s what’s wrong – many just accept that lame duck status, hit the road, draw the paycheck, and “milk it”. I’m not putting Alaska through that – I promised efficiencies and effectiveness! ? That’s not how I am wired. I am not wired to operate under the same old “politics as usual.” I promised that four years ago – and I meant it.

It’s not what is best for Alaska.

I am determined to take the right path for Alaska even though it is unconventional and not so comfortable.

With this announcement that I am not seeking re-election… I’ve determined it’s best to transfer the authority of governor to Lieutenant Governor Parnell; and I am willing to do so, so that this administration – with its positive agenda, its accomplishments, and its successful road to an incredible future – can continue without interruption and with great administrative and legislative success.

My choice is to take a stand and effect change – not hit our heads against the wall and watch valuable state time and money, millions of your dollars, go down the drain in this new environment. Rather, we know we can effect positive change outside government at this moment in time, on another scale, and actually make a difference for our priorities – and so we will, for Alaskans and for Americans.

Let me go back to a comfortable analogy for me – sports… basketball. I use it because you’re naïve if you don’t see the national full-court press picking away right now: A good point guard drives through a full court press, protecting the ball, keeping her eye on the basket… and she knows exactly when to pass the ball so that the team can WIN. And I’m doing that – keeping our eye on the ball that represents sound priorities – smaller government, energy independence, national security, freedom! And I know when it’s time to pass the ball – for victory.

I have given my reasons candidly and truthfully… and my last day won’t be for another few weeks so the transition will be very smooth. In fact, we will look to swear Sean in – in Fairbanks at the conclusion of our Governor’s picnics.

I do not want to disappoint anyone with my decision; all I can ask is that you TRUST me with this decision – but it’s no more “politics as usual”.

Some Alaskans don’t mind wasting public dollars and state time. I do. I cannot stand here as your Governor and allow millions upon millions of our dollars go to waste just so I can hold the title of Governor. And my children won’t allow it either. ? Some will question the timing. ? Let’s just say, this decision has been in the works for awhile…

In fact, this decision comes after much consideration, and finally polling the most important people in my life – my children (where the count was unanimous… well, in response to asking: “Want me to make a positive difference and fight for ALL our children’s future from OUTSIDE the Governor’s office?” It was four “yes’s” and one “hell yeah!” The “hell yeah” sealed it – and someday I’ll talk about the details of that… I think much of it had to do with the kids seeing their baby brother Trig mocked by some pretty mean-spirited adults recently.) Um, by the way, sure wish folks could ever, ever understand that we ALL could learn so much from someone like Trig – I know he needs me, but I need him even more… what a child can offer to set priorities RIGHT – that time is precious… the world needs more “Trigs”, not fewer.

My decision was also fortified during this most recent trip to Kosovo and Landstuhl, to visit our wounded soldiers overseas, those who sacrifice themselves in war for OUR freedom and security… we can ALL learn from our selfless Troops… they’re bold, they don’t give up, they take a stand and know that LIFE is short so they choose to NOT waste time. They choose to be productive and to serve something greater than SELF… and to build up their families, their states, our country. These Troops and their important missions – those are truly the worthy causes in this world and should be the public priority with time and resources and NOT this local / superficial wasteful political bloodsport.

May we ALL learn from them!

*((Gotta put First Things First))*

First things first: as Governor, I love my job and I love Alaska. It hurts to make this choice but I am doing what’s best for Alaska. I’ve explained why… though I think of the saying on my parents’ refrigerator that says “Don’t explain: your friends don’t need it and your enemies won’t believe you anyway.”

But I have given my reasons… no more “politics as usual” and I am taking my fight for what’s right – for Alaska – in a new direction.

Now, despite this, I don’t want any Alaskan dissuaded from entering politics after seeing this REAL “climate change” that began in August… no, we NEED hardworking, average Americans fighting for what’s right! And I will support you because we need YOU and YOU can effect change, and I can too on the outside.

We need those who will respect our Constitution where government’s supposed to serve from the BOTTOM UP, not move toward this TOP DOWN big government take-over… but rather, will be protectors of individual rights – who also have enough common sense to acknowledge when conditions have drastically changed and are willing to call an audible and pass the ball when it’s time so the team can win! And that is what I’m doing!

Remember Alaska… America is now, more than ever, looking North to the Future. It’ll be good. So God bless you, and from me and my family – to ALL Alaska – you have my heart.

And we will be in the capable hands of our Lieutenant Governor, Sean Parnell. And Lieutenant General Craig Campbell will assume the role of Lieutenant Governor. And it is my promise to you that I will always be standing by, ready to assist. We have a good, positive agenda for Alaska.

In the words of General MacArthur said, “We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”

Sarah Palin Crushes All Comers In American Spectator Straw Poll

Posted by Gary P Jackson on February 17, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

More straw polling is coming out this morning, and once again, Sarah Palin just crushes all comers. As we reported earlier, she was the overwhelming favorite of Hot Air readers, in a poll that asked some interesting questions, yielding some quite revealing answers.

Now comes the results from the straw poll conducted by American Spectator Magazine.

While online polls don’t usually excite us one way or the other, the American Spectator poll, just like the Hot Air poll, is noteworthy because the website went above and beyond to insure there was only one vote per customer. This poll required both a valid e-mail account and manually entering a coded text for the vote to count.

We’re not all that surprised by the huge margin of victory by Sarah. She usually tops these polls. What is surprising is the fact all of the perceived “front runners“, Romney, Huckabee, Gingrich, et al, couldn’t even beat “other” in this poll. Sarah got 45.85 percent of the vote, and the number two vote getter, Herman Cain, couldn’t break ten percent. He ended up with 7.13 percent of the vote.

One thing to remember, these are not scientific polls by any stretch of the imagination. However, they do gauge enthusiasm among the core group who will decide who the 2012 Republican nominee will be. It should also be noted that editorially, Hot Air and American Spectator are not “fans” of Sarah Palin, and most of the content about her takes on a negative feel. [even when it’s positive news] Of course, readers of both websites know the authors get pounded pretty hard in their comments sections because of it.

That’s kind of the point of the whole thing. Enthusiasm for Sarah Palin to be our next President is sky high among the base of the party. Enthusiasm is what win elections.

If we have one real sticking point in these polls, it would be the number of candidates. I know there are a ton of names out there being tossed about, but many have said “no” to a run, or are fringe candiates who have no shot at all. I’d like to see some major straw polling that just included those who are highly likely to run, and have a legitimate shot. A “top 10” if you will. It would be interesting to see how that would shake out.

With that said, here are the results:

Sarah Palin 45.85%

Herman Cain 7.13%

Mitch Daniels 6.00%

Ron Paul 5.89%

Chris Christie 5.77%

Other 4.87%

Jim DeMint 3.55%

Mike Huckabee 3.12%

Mitt Romney 2.85%

Newt Gingrich 2.38%

Paul Ryan 2.14%

Tim Pawlenty 1.72%

Michele Bachmann 1.60%

Mike Pence 1.44%

Haley Barbour 1.17%

Rick Santorum 0.97%

Rand Paul 0.94%

Marco Rubio 0.74%

Rick Perry 0.74%

John Thune 0.66%

Gary Johnson 0.47

Post CPAC Straw Poll: Sarah Palin And Allen West Are “Winning The Future” … Big Time!

Posted by Gary P Jackson on February 17, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

After the circus at CPAC, including the embarrassment of Ron Paul winning yet another straw poll, a reality check is sorely needed.

As usual, Ron Paul’s political action committee purchased large blocks of tickets to CPAC, reselling them at a serious loss, so his rowdy bunch could get to DC and vote for him. This is standard operating procedure for the good doctor. Mitt Romney, who finished second, has been known to buy a straw poll or two himself.

With that in mind, Patrick Ishmael over at Hot Air put together a straw poll of his own. We don’t normally report on online polls, but Patrick took extra care to make sure there was only one vote per customer. While not a scientific poll, it does a great amount of enthusiasm for Sarah Palin, among readers of one of the top center-right websites.

Sarah garnered 37 percent of the votes, with the closest competitor, Chris Christie, coming in a very distant second at 11%.

Maintaining her position from our last poll in December, Sarah Palin again stomps the Hot Air Presidential field by a wide and comfortable margin.

[ …. ]

Since this latest poll was initially faced with a fair amount of ACORN-style fake-votery, let me say up front that Palin’s numbers are absolutely legitimate: her block of voters is one of the most active on the web, and they turned out in force for this survey.

In second place is Chris Christie, who also fell in behind Palin in December. Third place is, surprisingly, Mitch Daniels, doubling his percentage take from 5% of the vote last time to 10% this time. A surprising fourth place also goes to Herman Cain, the only candidate really in the race right now, at 8%. I think there’s little doubt that Daniels and Cain benefited from a sort of CPAC-bounce; Christie, still a GOP rock star, may have been hurt by being out of the limelight in the last couple of months. Mitt Romney comes in at fifth, slightly strengthening over his last showing, from 5% to 6%.

Besides the obvious “who do you want to be President?” question, Patrick crafted some interesting side questions as well. One of those asked: “How committed are you to your candidate?“:

Online zeal does not necessarily make for eventual Presidents, but it may say something about commitment and a little about the size of the movement. (But not always.) Sarah Palin’s numbers bear out both of these points, notably the former one; while 54% of the average candidate’s supporters consider themselves “very committed” backers, 82% of Sarah Palin voters consider themselves “very committed.”

This is an interesting metric. It confirms what most Palin supporters already knew. Once you join the team, you are not likely to look at other options. Sarah Palin’s long record of success, and compelling history, translates into strong support. The kind that will work hard in 2012 to make things happen.

Something else. Since the other candidate’s strongest supporters barely break the 50% mark, the chances for Sarah Palin to pick up even more support, once she starts actually campaigning is very good. Better than the rest, for certain.

The poll also asks who should be Vice President. This wasn’t close either, nor surprising. Allen West is the overwhelmingly choice for her Vice President!.

That would make for quite the formidable ticket.

Check out all of the results from the poll here.

Sarah Palin: Ineluctable

Posted by Gary P Jackson on February 17, 2011

in·e·luc·ta·ble

[in-i-luhk-tuh-buhl]

–adjective

incapable of being evaded; inescapable: an ineluctable destiny.

Origin:

1615–25; < Latin inēluctābilis, equivalent to in- in-3 + ēluctā ( rī ) to force a way out or over, surmount ( ē- e- + luctārī to wrestle) + -bilis -ble —Related forms in·e·luc·ta·bil·i·ty, noun in·e·luc·ta·bly, adverb —Synonyms inevitable, unavoidable.

By Gary P Jackson

As some go out of their way tell us Sarah Palin is somehow “unelectable” [but never give a valid reason why] we find the better word to describe her is “ineluctable.”

We have watched Sarah perform brilliantly as a Mayor/City Manager, oil and gas regulator, and Governor. We have seen her become the undisputed leader in opposition to the Obama regime and all of the disastrous policies that come from it. We’ve seen her ability to change the debate with a single tweet or Facebook post.

We feel Sarah Palin is destined to become on of our nation’s greatest leaders and greatest Presidents. An ineluctable destiny.

Next time you here someone say “Sarah Palin isn’t electable“, just smile and say, no, she’s ineluctable, and walk away.

Sarah Palin: A Better Debater Than You Think

Posted by Gary P Jackson on February 17, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

There are some folks who run around saying Sarah Palin can’t win because she wouldn’t be able to hold her own in the debates.

Now the consensus was Sarah beat up on Joe Biden pretty good when those two debated. But that was just one debate.

We found this great video that samples portions of the debates that took place when Sarah ran for Governor of Alaska. It was put together by the folks at the far left Huffington Post, basically doing Team Obama’s opposition research for them.

In these clips she’s debating sitting Republican Governor Frank Murkowski and well as former democrat Governor Tony Knowles, as he attempted to take back the office he once held.

As you see, she was more than capable of whippin’ up on the “good old boys“! Both Murkoski and Knowles are old hands at politics. Murkowski was a United States Senator before becoming Governor, and as mentioned, Knowles a former Governor himself.

If Sarah Palin can take these two apart, she’ll make short work of both the GOP establishment show ponies, and Obama.

Media Silent As Palin Landslides 3 Major Grass Roots GOP Polls.All 3 Polls In One Place +Analysis

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on February 17, 2011

The media and the “progressive” (sic) blogosphere were gleeful over the recent results of the CPAC straw poll which saw Sarah Palin (who did not attend) finish 9th with 3% of the votes from the few who bothered to vote (3742) of the 10,000 or so who attended.


One could sense however that the glee of the media was tempered by everyone being well aware that the Ron Paul fanatics had packed the event. His winning last year, to no avail subsequently, showed how meaningless the straw poll result ultimately was.


As I mentioned in a previous posting, Palin, by not attending the farce, was the real winner as she had her dignity still intact at the end of the event. In addition, her polling, head to head against President Obama has improved strikingly over the last month in fact. A fact which has gone unmentioned in the liberal media of course.


What has also not been brought to the attention of the wider public is that Palin has wiped the floor with the other possible presidential candidates in a series- not just one- of a number of polls run by various sites who have massive viewership and credibility.


1. The “Hot Air” poll which was run on a very strict one vote per  person basis saw Palin win going away at 37% with Chris Christie way back in second place at 11%


2. “The National Review NRO” Poll Which Palin won from a vote of 23,000+-much more significant than the small vote at CPAC


The American Spectator Poll Which Palin won in a landslide getting 45.8% to the second place getter Herman Cain at 7.13%. An astonishingly solid result.


These strikingly impressive polls, taken as a whole show, irrefutably, that the grass roots want Palin as their nominee-absolutely. These result support the findings of various state polls of Republicans, which give the Palin/Huckabee support level at between 30%-40%  which in almost every case, runs twice that of Romney.


Again, the message is clear- the base wants a true conservative,and that true conservative is Sarah Palin.
Not that the media would have you know it of course.


As a follow on from this growing strength, a few media people have given up trying to foist the RINO of their choice on the party, and instead have turned their attention to trying to foist their Vice Presidential pick on Palin-who they tacitly admit will be the nominee. To counter that, this site has set up a poll for readers to express their choice,to be sent to SARHPAC. as an expression of grass roots thinking.
