Gov. Palin on Fox News: Ferraro a Pioneer, Paved Way for Women

Posted by Ron Devito on March 26, 2011

“The open doors [Geraldine Ferraro] has provided all women [is] pretty profound and outstanding. [I am] so proud to have known her,” Governor Palin said in a telephone interview with Fox News today following the death of Geraldine Ferraro to blood cancer. Gov. Palin and Ferraro were together on Election night discussing the direction the country should go in. Though they disagreed on politics, they “agreed on the rights that women have and that everyone here is to be treated equally, and you progress and accomplish based on your own merits,” Gov. Palin said. Geraldine Ferraro was a pioneer, accepting the Democratic Vice Presidential nomination in 1984. “I can’t say enough good things about what it is she accomplished.” Ferraro had class, wisdom, and grace, Gov. Palin said.

Despite having cancer, Ferraro continued her work opening doors of opportunity for women. She refused to be a victim. And she advocated for cancer victims. “She wasn’t self-focused. She was always trying to help others and trying to make the world a better place,” Gov. Palin said.

“Across the political spectrum, all of us have the utmost respect for Geraldine Ferraro. She understood what she had to bust through to get to where she was….she was under great scrutiny…and was attacked as she rose. She handled it all with grace and dignity,” Gov. Palin said.

When asked if Gov. Palin considered Ferraro a role model for young women to follow, she said, “absolutely.” Gov. Palin had called her daughter Bristol to discuss Ferraro. Ferraro believed in work ethic and Gov. Palin noted that Ferraro was Providentially born on Women’s Equality Day.

“Does it make you even more committed in your desire personally to serve the public good when you look at her life on a day like today that is sad, at the same time you say inspiring,” the Fox News reporter asked Gov. Palin. “It does, because it is inspiring and it all about the pioneering spirit that built America – taking bold steps to accomplish great things despite the hardships that you know you’re going to be anticipating – they’re out there….every step of Geraldine’s life she faced hardship, yet she plowed through and she was able to pave a way for others. She went before. She prepared the way,” Gov. Palin said.

James Lewis: The Liberal Media Cult

Posted by joshpainter on March 26, 2011

– by Josh Painter
*
At American Thinker, James Lewis has the media pegged. It’s a cult of liars. Excerpts:

There’s plenty of evidence for coordinated propaganda lies in the media. We even have an apology from Roger Simon of Politico for the corrupt and massive coordination of media headlines using the JournOlist email list. They say they’ve dropped JournOlist, but they are still at it every single day, probably through a secure website. We know that the Washington Post, the NYT (all the news you’re allowed to think), and the UK Guardian (an old Stalinist rag, as Malcolm Muggeridge revealed in his autobiography), are talking to each other all the time.

[…]

Media leftists are liars. That’s the only way they can say the same words on the same day, every day. Rush Limbaugh has been proving it for years just by recording the talking heads of the MSM on any given day, all aping the same words, syllable by syllable. Even monkeys are smarter than that.

[…]

Just Google these words: “Sarah Palin loses popularity.”

I just got more than 8 million hits on that phrase in 0.22 seconds.

The hits include:

1. The New York Times. (Natch!)
2. McClatchy.
3. CBS News
4. HuffPo.
5. Newsweek.
6. Mother Jones.
7. Obama.org
… et mendacious cetera.

We know who started that little viral lie. It came from the Washington Post, from Dana Milbank, who whipped up a twitter mob for the specific purpose of shutting Governor Palin out of the liberal media. That’s how scared they are of the Governor of Alaska.

All the little brainwashed Leftobots went Heil Dana! Zum Befehl! And then they marched stiffly to all their twitter pods and typed in the message from the Politburo. It’s just like those old Nuremberg mobs in the 30s. Libs are really disgusting human beings.

And now the words “Sarah Palin is losing popularity” has 8 million hits on Google.

How’s that for mass brainwashing?

John Bolton As Vice-President-Palin’s Cheney ? (And Tribute To Geraldine Ferraro)

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on March 26, 2011

Original post At; M.Joseph Sheppard’s “A Point Of View”
As with Sarah Palin and many others I add my condolences at the passing of Geraldine Ferraro. Her historic achievement as the first female vice-presidential candidate set a new framework for American politics. That it took 64 years after American women were allowed the vote showed the strength of the opposition to change, and the fortitude she had to carry off her role with the honor she did.


In looking to the next election and the possible historic situation of having the first female presidential candidate or president the question of which person,manor woman who would be best suited as vice-president arises


According to the poll I ran which was substantially responded to from from Palin supporting sites new congressman Allen West was the run-away choice as a Vice-President for Palin if she runs in 2012.


West certainly has some very positive aspects to him as a potential running mate, not least helping to put the crucial state of Florida in play, but there is a massive gap in his CV which, in my opinion, negates him as a potential running mate. 


There is no history of any legislative experience on his part-a matter which weighs heavily in the mind of the public when they look at a ticket and ask themselves “if anything happens to the potential president would the potential Vice-president have the experiences to step straight into the job?”


Even  though Governor Palin had a record of substantial managerial and legislative experience she still came under strong attack in her 2008 VP run as somehow lacking in those areas.This was of course ironic given that candidate Obama had a much smaller record in those areas-but the leftist media was selective in its outlook of course.


To think that the same media would not continue their attack on Palin’s record, emboldened even further by not having to defend President Obama as not having a legislative/managerial history is disingenuous. 


To imagine that they would not attack West as having no record and making Palin have to constantly defend her choice in that respect,wasting precious media time, is beyond being disingenuous.


In the “Choose A Vice-President For Palin” poll the only  other candidate beside West who showed relatively strongly, in fact the only other one to get into double figures, was Rudy Giulliani. 


Giulliani a national hero, has a long record of experience in management, is acceptable on the pro-life issue, has extensive foreign connections, is a Catholic and also might assist with putting Florida in play, given the substantial time he has spent there, and his connection with ex-New Yorkers who have retired there.


There are some difficulties with Giulliani, appreciating that there is no such thing as the “perfect” candidate, which include his lacklustre presidential run in 2008, and his personal marriage history, which might not resonate to well with some conservative Christians. 


That said, it is still my opinion that his positives well outweigh any negatives, and he would most certainly bring a strong element of stability, positivity, and a no- nonsense approach. He would make an excellent spearhead for Palin who could concentrate on policy and not be charged with divisiveness.


However, should Giulliani’s negatives  be seen as an impediment to his being chosen there are two others who would add the needed gravitas to a Palin run. I have canvassed Condoleezza Rice as potential running mate as her foreign policy credentials are beyond reproach. 


Frankly speaking her candidacy would be a very powerful antidote to the, sure to happen, background campaign against both Palin and especially the GOP, as somehow “racists.” Further, as a ticket with two women, it would be a very strong magnet to the women of America who are, after all, a majority. It would be an historic draw for many to see not one, but two women occupying the highest offices in the land.


To this point Rice has given no indication of any interest in the 2012 election, but there is another option-John Bolton who would bring a similar very high level of gravitas and experience to the ticket. Bolton impresses more each time I see him. 


His latest appearance on Great Van Susteren’s show, discussing the conflict in Libya, was absolutely straightforward, incisive, and insightful. He has a wealth of foreign policy experience at his fingertips and tells it as it is. He presents an absolutely clear set of ideas which he expresses forcibly, and would make an outstanding debater who would of course more than hold his own against Biden.


Bolton appeared to have considered a presidential run himself, but there has been little poll response, and he seems to have placed the concept aside. He appears very much cast in the Cheney mould as a person who garners substantial respect for his honesty, forthrightness, experience and gravitas, but whose personality, lacking in the unique factor of charisma, is perhaps not suited for a presidential run. 


On the other hand, Bolton  can add, as Cheney did for Bush, special factors to balance the ticket . These would give the voting public confidence that  the VP could step straight into the presidency if needed.


Bolton is an excellent choice for Palin and a Palin/Bolton ticket would have an excellent chance of victory.

Bristol Palin Tells Kirstie Alley To Hang Tough

Posted by Gary P Jackson on March 26, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

Haters are gonna hate. That’s the message Bristol Palin has for actress Kirstie Alley who is appearing on this season’s Dancing With The Stars:

Kirstie Alley, you danced beautifully, and the haters will hate no matter what. Plus, when others criticize your weight, you just might end up going all the way to the end of Dancing With The Stars! (It’s happened before.)

This kid is a class act.

I know we can all be guilty of it from time to time, but what does it say about us that many take a fun and entertaining show, and turn it into a hate fest? Many put more effort into ridiculing the performers than just enjoying a little bit of entertainment.

I’ve always enjoyed Kirstie’s acting, and hope she does well on DWTS.

UPDATE: Geraldine Ferraro: A Tribute (A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice)

Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on March 26, 2011

As many of you have heard, Geraldine Ferraro passed away this morning at the age of 75 from blood cancer. As a young woman, I have always admired Mrs. Ferraro because she did so much for women and helped to shatter a glass ceiling that at one time seemed unbreakable. Unlike many other Democrats, Mrs. Ferraro was unafraid to stand up and speak out against her own party, which made me respect her even more. I will never forget watching her on Fox News shortly after Sarah Palin was announced as John McCain’s running mate. As a woman, she was so proud at the possibility of a woman holding the second-highest office in the land. Although she and Sarah disagreed on many, many issues, and Ferraro supported President Obama during the 2008 election, she looked past these differences, which speaks to her integrity, wisdom and strength of character.

As a young woman, I always will be grateful for Mrs. Ferraro’s service and the sacrifice she made for her country. She forever will be a role model to me for everything she represented. Although she is no longer physically with us, her fight for women and her love of country will live on! Thank you, Geraldine, for everything you did for women like me! Thank you for defending women, regardless of party, and for never foundering in your mission for the advancement of women in politics and beyond! Thank you for your sacrifice and your steadfast, unwavering love for America!!! You will forever be missed!!!

I leave you with one of my favorite television clips of Geraldine Ferraro and Sarah Palin together for the first time on Fox News. Click here to watch.

Gov. Palin Discusses 2012 and Family Life with India’s Koël Rinchet

Posted by Ron Devito on March 26, 2011

Governor Palin last week gave a wide-ranging interview to Koël Purie Rinchet following her speech at the India Today Conclave 2011. Rinchet, the host of On the Couch with Koël began the interview by stating that Gov. Palin could become the most powerful person in the world in 2012.

India’s Fascinating Diversity

Gov. Palin said she found India’s geographic, religious and cultural diversity fascinating, and praised India for “leading by example…in terms of tolerance and embracing that diversity.”

Gov. Palin lauded India’s decisions pertaining to individual liberties, free markets, and small government.

She described her trip to the hotel from the airport as an “adrenaline rush,” as she took in the New Delhi scenery. Gov. Palin said she wanted to see more of India, specifically the mountains and the Taj Mahal, sentiments she also expressed in her speech that day.

On Time Management

When asked how she manages a family of five children, a grandchild and her political life, Gov. Palin said her husband Todd is a great partner and helpmate. Both Sarah and Todd Palin have large families spanning five generations, and “all pitch in and help, making the logistics work,” Gov. Palin said. When asked if something had to be sacrificed, Gov. Palin responded that she “does not spend a lot of time lazing around,” and is usually multi-tasking. Downtime would be sacrificed. Gov. Palin said that both Todd and herself are wired to “go, go, go!”

Sarah and Todd Palin: Life Partners and a Team

Rinchet observed that Todd is a “such a caring man, checking your face before you went on.” She noted that India tends to be a more macho culture and asked Gov. Palin if Todd ever felt like he was the lesser partner. Gov. Palin said no, adding that Todd is a successful businessman, four-time Iron Dog champion, and athlete. She said that they were very lucky to have met at an early age and though each does their own thing, they work as a team and as partners.

Rinchet asked Gov. Palin how she advised her daughter Bristol regarding her pregnancy with Tripp. Gov. Palin said at first it looked like an insurmountable challenge for Bristol, but she came to see what a joy and blessing Tripp was.

Recreation and Ordinary Tasks

When asked what she does for recreation, Gov. Palin said she goes running, snow-machining, and “anything else in the great outdoors.”

Rinchet asked Gov. Palin what was the last ordinary thing she did. Gov. Palin had done many loads of laundry prior to her 19-hour flight to India. Gov. Palin and her family do a lot of life’s ordinary tasks themselves. “It keeps me grounded,” she said.

Did Pakistan’s Prime Minister Flirt?

In 2008, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Zardari asked Gov. Palin for permission to hug her. Rinchet asked Gov. Palin if she felt the Prime Minister was flirting. She said she did not know but wanted the meeting to get to politics and policy, which it did in short order.

People from India Gov. Palin has Met

Rinchet asked Gov. Palin who she would like to meet in India. Gov. Palin had already met Mother Theresa’s biographer, and India’s Prime Minister. She said there are so many dynamic, interesting people in India and “I’d like to meet more of you.”

Frustration vs. Anger

Rinchet said that Gov. Palin was reputed to “have a temper” and asked her what things made her angry. Gov. Palin said reports of her “having a temper” were “ginned up” and “made up.” She added that as a mom, she has to stay calm, cool, and collected in front of her children. Gov. Palin said she does not get angry, but sometimes gets frustrated at media lies about her record, accomplishments, and family.

Family, Todd, and God

“What is the most satisfying thing about being Sarah Palin,” Rinchet asked. Gov. Palin said family, her relationship with Todd and her relationship with God were the most important things in her life, superseding all else.

2012

Rinchet’s final question was, “What do you make of President Obama?” Gov. Palin said, that she would not criticize him on foreign soil, that he is still our president, “but I look forward to 2012. I think we’re going to see a change, and I think it’s going to be a change for the better.”

On the Passing of Geraldine Ferraro

Posted by Ron Devito on March 26, 2011

Governor Palin today posted on Facebook:

My family and I would like to express our sincere condolences to the family of Geraldine Ferraro. When I had the honor of working alongside Geraldine on election night last year, we both discussed the role of women in politics and our excited expectation that someday that final glass ceiling would be shattered by the election of a woman president. She was an amazing woman who dedicated her life to public service as a teacher, prosecutor, Congresswoman, and Vice Presidential candidate. She broke one huge barrier and then went on to break many more. The world will miss her. May she rest in peace and may her example of hard work and dedication to America continue to inspire all women.
