Palin on “Follow the Money”: Will Announce 2012 Decison When Ready

Posted by Ron Devito on May 18, 2011

“I’ll announce my decision [to run for President in 2012 or not] when I’m ready and my family is ready,” Governor Palin said tonight in an interview with Eric Bolling on the Fox Business show “Follow the Money,” from an undisclosed location. “I will not follow media-dictated deadlines. The legal deadlines will dictate,” she said. In expressing her preferences for a 2012 candidate, Gov. Palin said she wants to see someone who will “take on both sides of the aisle and reign in big government and allow the economy to thrive.”


Gov. Palin’s remarks on 2012 were in the closing minutes of her single-segment interview with Bolling. Much of the interview focused on the “unflippingbelievable” ObamaCare waivers, Newt Gingrich’s slamming of Paul Ryan’s budget plan. “Every time I hear Pelosi’s explanation [on why ObamaCare needed to be passed], it makes my skin crawl,” Gov. Palin said, adding that Obama care is un-American, unconstitutional, and unaffordable. She could not understand why Pelosi is allowed to grant waivers to some companies and not others. Gov. Palin said it constituted corporate cronyism and favoritism and was unfair. “If there is no investigation, the government is not serious about ethics reform,” she said.


“It does no good when fiscal conservatives are bashing alternatives to ObamaCare,” Gov. Palin said referring to Newt Gingrich’s infamous “right wing social engineering” comment that he back-pedaled on. “Newt certainly has the right to his opinion on Paul Ryan’s plan is fiscally responsible…only a small portion has to do with Medicare reform….the plan would save $1.2 billion per day, $200 million per day on medicaid, $300 million per day by repealing and replacing ObamaCare, and $200 million per day [on miscellaneous wasteful spending].”


When asked about Schwartzenegger’s child fathered as the result of an affair with his housekeeper, Gov. Palin said, “I feel bad for his children – his beautiful children. It’s an irresponsible and disgusting thing he did. It speaks to his character. It’s sad.”


Gov. Palin closed the interview complimenting Bolling for his focus on “drilling for our own sources and mining for our own sources.” Bolling promised Gov. Palin he would have her back to discuss energy independence.

Gov. Palin on Hannity: Just Say No to Lamestream Media

Posted by Ron Devito on May 18, 2011

“I don’t know why politicians have to apologize after getting dinged in a 24-hour news cycle,” Governor Palin said tonight in a two-segment interview on Hannity’s TV show from an undisclosed location. Her remark was in reference to New Gingrich’s apology for saying that Paul Ryan’s budget plan constituted “right wing social engineering.”

Gov. Palin re-affirmed her support of the Ryan plan, which she said would save our country $1.2 billion per day, while Obama’s policies are leading the nation on the road to bankruptcy.

She said that all Republican candidates need to be prepared for the “gotcha” questions from “leftist lamestream media.” Further, Gov. Palin said “we should ignore the lamestream media. Don’t let them change our position in a 24-hour news cycle and don’t let the mainstream media dictate the debate.

Hannity played footage of David Gregory accusing Newt Gingrich of racism over his “Food Stamp President” remark – a reference to the spike in the number of people on the program since Obama took office. Gov. Palin said that the question itself was “racist-tinged” and false charges of racism are leveled to end the conversation. She said we should call the mainstream media out on this behavior. She said Gingrich’s assessment was legitimate in light of our government’s overarching, over-taxing, and over-spending ways.

Hannity noted that the media ignored Obama’s association with domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, but plays “gotcha” with all Republicans. Gov. Palin said “we should ignore some of these reporters, use new social media and fair and balanced reporters and don’t play the lamestream media’s game.”

On 2012, Gov. Palin said she is “still assessing, and the field will continue to change. People will come and go before that legal decision has to be made. I’m still thinking about it, praying and talking with family.” She said she wants to see a candidate with Tea Party principles, who realizes that we are “Taxed Enough Already.”

When asked which candidates she would like to hear from, Gov. Palin said “I want to hear from all of them. All human beings bring strengths and weaknesses to the table….I live for fighting for family, faith, and freedom in our country.” Gov. Palin said it was still early to announce. “Once the line-up is set, I’d like to see if the candidate had the opportunity to cut over-spending and save other people’s money, and protect our Second Amendment rights, and all our other Constitutional rights.”

Gov. Palin reiterated her point that we should do our homework and not let the media define the candidates for us.

Gov. Palin concluded the interview re-stating her assessment from yesterday about the ObamaCare waivers going to Nancy Pelosi’s district. “It’s crony corporatism on a smaller scale. It’s a corrupt system, this ObamaCare fiasco with all these waivers coming down. It’s favoritism and it’s unfair.”

Palin Is The Political “Lucky General” Winning As Rivals Self Destruct

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on May 18, 2011

“Give me lucky generals” Napoleon is reported to have said. This clearly applies to the art of politics as well as war. If Sarah Palin had jumped into the GOP presidential race a month ago-as so many of her supporters were urging she would have been caught up in the three ring circus that is the current Republican race.


Her announcement would have been subsumed beneath the Bin Laden death and President Obama’s subsequent bump in the polls and the massive media coverage. Then the Trump “candidacy” with the resultant media frenzy and his brief huge jump in the preferred candidate stakes (at her polling expense to some degree-not because he was necessarily perceived as superior but because she had not indicated she was a candidate) sucked all the oxygen out of the room.


The Huckabee decision not to run created a brief media fire storm, Romney’s ongoing problems with health care reform and now the Gingrich meltdown is reflecting badly on all the current GOP candidates by making the party look split on the key area of healthcare reform. His backtracking and ridiculous statement that anyone who criticises his anti-Ryan statements is a liar because he admits he made a mistake is also reflecting badly on the party.


Palin, by staying out of the race to this point and for not being involved in the Huckabee/Trump/Gingrich/Bin Laden/Romney media frenzy/character assassination/speculation circus is benefiting her immensely as the latest Gallup poll reflects. 


Further, because what Gingrich is enduring within a week of announcing from the media she has endured and survived for over two years-basically when she declares, if she does, there is nothing the media can dredge up about her personal life/past statements/associations etc which has not been thoroughly thrashed out, canvassed, lied about, blown out of proportion so she will be able to campaign without the distractions and sensation that have plagued Trump and Gingrich.


It is no wonder that Daniels is hesitating to declare a candidacy, apparently because of his and his wife’s fears for their marriage under the strain. This is a well founded fear and there is no doubt whatsoever that the moment he,or Cain or Bachman declare, if they do, they will be subject to an initial media blitz of  a somewhat
positive level as the media looks to fill up their speculation quota and then the liberal media/bloggers will jump in boots and all  and they won’t know what hit them.


Palin, by staying above the fray, not indulging in character attacks on other possible candidates and sticking to attacking the administrations policies is showing that luck comes from judgement. This who have been pressing on her to run are understandable in their urging because they have a deep level of commitment to her and what she stands for. However, patience is required, and so far her policy of not committing has seen possible rivals self-destruct one by one without her having to do anything.

Palin calls Obamacare waiver process corrupt

Posted by loricalabrese on May 18, 2011

The Daily Caller reported yesterday that President Barack Obama’s administration approved 204 new Obamacare waivers in April. A waiver you ask? That’s right, waivers are being issued to posh hotels, gourmet restaurants, day spas and nightclubs, exempting the businesses from Obamacare and allowing those businesses to keep their lower-cost employee health plans for now. It was discovered that a startling one in five of the new waivers to Obama’s health care reform law went to businesses in Nancy Pelosi’s district.

The Daily Caller reached out to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin for her reaction and she told the Daily Caller frankly that the waiver process is “corrupt.”

“Unflippingbelievable! No, wait, it is believable,” Palin said in an email to TheDC. “Seriously, this is corrupt. And anyone who still supports the Pelosi-Reid-Obama agenda of centralized government takeovers of the free market and the corresponding crony capitalism is, in my book, complicit.”

The reason the Obama administration says it has given out waivers is to exempt certain companies or policyholders from “annual limit requirements,” but what’s ironic about the whole thing is that all of these businessess receiving the waivers are businesses that could afford Obamacare. So it has people wondering, if these businesses can’t afford Obamacare’s regulations, what are the mom and pop businesses going to do?

Another shocking revelation took place on Monday when the Las Vegas Sun reported that Nevada—Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s home state—received a partial statewide Obamacare waiver, too. I shouldn’t have to remind you that it was both Reid and Pelosi who forced Obamacare to become law. Now his state will be one of three to get a waiver from the law’s requirements.

To date, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has approved 1,372 Obamacare waivers, covering 3.1 million Americans, but I have to agree with The Foundry on this one when they ask, “How about a National Obamacare Waiver?”

Gallup: With Huckabee out, Palin, Gingrich, Romney lead the GOP

Posted by joshpainter on May 18, 2011

– by Josh Painter
*
A new Gallup analysis of its most recent polling data finds that with Mike Huckabee out of the race for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney are the leaders in Republicans’ preferences:

Romney and Palin are essentially tied; Gingrich does slightly less well even though he and Romney have nearly identical name identification.

Ron Paul and Bachmann are the only other potential candidates with name recognition above 50%. They are also next in line in terms of Republican nomination support.

[…]

Palin’s support is the most intense. A higher percentage of Republicans have strongly favorable opinions than is the case for the other two, giving her a slightly higher overall Positive Intensity Score despite her higher strongly unfavorable percentage.

Gingrich and Romney have similar Positive Intensity Scores.

The overall differences in Republicans’ views of these three well-known candidates are not large.

[…]

Palin, who has given no indication of whether she will run for the nomination, has very high name identification, is near the top of Republicans’ nomination preferences, and has a higher Positive Intensity Score than any other well-known candidate. Palin thus must be considered one of the GOP leaders at this point. Romney and Gingrich are also well-known. Of the two, Romney is slightly better positioned at this point due to his higher ranking in Gallup’s trial heats.
