Todd and Sarah may ride with the Rolling Thunder vets (Updated)

Posted by joshpainter on May 27, 2011

Blue Star parents Todd and Sarah Palin may be riding with tens of thousands of Rolling Thunder veterans Sunday:

The former Alaska governor, who is the subject of a lot of overheated speculation about whether she will run for president in 2012, has accepted an invitation to participate in the annual Rolling Thunder memorial ride this Sunday, an official says.

“As far as I know, she is trying to rent a motorcycle, so she can ride with her husband,” said Nancy Regg, a spokeswoman for Rolling Thunder.

Gregg says the tentative plan is for Palin to join up with the ride at the Pentagon at 7 a.m. The ride kicks off at noon, and hundreds of bikers will snake through D.C. to the event’s main stage, which will be between the Reflecting Pool and the Korean War Veterans Memorial on the Mall. The program is scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m.

Gregg said Palin is currently not scheduled to speak at the event and watchers should not expect any type of “political statement” from Palin during Rolling Thunder.

Warning, Todd: Speaking from personal experience, riding a motorcycle can be downright addictive. If you rent a chunk of American Iron for the RT ride, you might just want to get your own Harley or Victory (Arctic Cat doesn’t build two-wheelers, AFAIK) for surfing the Maricopa County roads. The temptation is greater, of course, in Arizona, where one can ride all year long, unlike Alaska, where motorcycles have to hibernate for 7 to 10 months out of ever 12.

But one scoot is never enough. How about his and hers Harleys? Maybe even get one of them fitted with a side car so Trig and Piper can enjoy the ride, too. Then perhaps a dirt bike for the desert… Whatever you do, don’t get a copy of Bruce Brown’s “On Any Sunday” DVD. To watch Steve McQueen jumping the sand dunes on his 400 Husqvarna is nothing less than inspirational

Update: An FYI for Palin-hatin’ leftist liar Andrea Mitchell of MSPDS – Sarah and Todd Palin were invited to participate in the ride.

Obama’s Strange Strategy: Borrow Foreign Money to Give to Foreign Countries

Posted by Ron Devito on May 27, 2011

Governor Palin today posted on Facebook:

Should we be borrowing money from China to turn around and give it to the Muslim Brotherhood?

Given that we are running massive deficits and are drowning in more than $14 trillion in debt, and despite not knowing who will rule Egypt until its election this fall, this strange strategy may be the end result given President Obama’s announcement that he is committing $2 billion to Egypt’s “new government.” It’s part of a $20 billion foreign aid package laid out with the Group of 8 countries in Europe today.

Now, given that Egypt has a history of corruption when it comes to utilizing American aid, it is doubtful that the money will really help needy Egyptian people. Couple that with the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood is organized to have a real shot at taking control of Egypt’s government, and one has to ask why we would send money (that we don’t have) into unknown Egyptian hands?

Throwing borrowed money around is not sound economic policy. And throwing borrowed money around the developing world is not sound foreign policy. Foreign assistance should go to American allies that need it and appreciate it, and for humanitarian purposes when it can truly make a difference.

Considering the Obama Administration’s continued strange strategies on the economy and foreign policy have us counting down the days to the next election. November 2012 can’t come soon enough.

Give Him His Due-Chris Matthews Gives Constructive Review Of Palin’s Possible Run

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on May 27, 2011

Chris Matthews, surprisingly, in fact astonishingly, gives a wide ranging  “fair and balanced’ presentation on Sarah Palin and her new, 2012 run, activity. Discussing with  GOP and Dem operatives Matthews canvasses Palin’s forthcoming bus tour and movie.

Matthews gives due credit to Palin for her outstanding qualities-public speaking and energizing mass crowds and, again remarkable for MSNBC, states she won her debate with Biden on points and concludes that he wishes her to be the nominee-not for the usual cynical reasons we hear from the left media “she’d eb a laughingstock and an easy beat for Obama-but because she would add color and excitement compared to “the three male stooges”.

Credit where it is due Mr Matthews-well done and lets hope this is a harbinger of things to come-perhaps the Schultz disaster has sent a message to MSNBC or Matthews has decided to rise above the herd and be a statesman amongst broadcasters-we can only hope.

Palin Is This Generation’s JFK.Like Him She Will Ignore The Elitists And Win

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on May 27, 2011

As a “recovering liberal” who cut his (milk) teeth in politics a volunteer for JFK’s campaign in the New York campaign HQ this column by “conservativecurmudgeon” which recently appeared at Red State is highly evocative. However, more important that my memories is the very real connection between the challenges JFK faced in his presidential campaign and the lessons for the Palin campaign.The author makes the clear connection that Palin, like JFK, has to run an unorthodox campaign and not only not listen to the beltway experts (who hate her) but bypass them altogether.

Hmmm… ‘Tis something in the Wind that makes me think Sarah Palin might be this Generation’s JFK…

Oh, I know, I know: This opens me up to the hackneyed Lloyd Bentsen trope about knowing John Kennedy, and you, Sarah Palin, are no John Kennedy… To which, one hopes, she would answer, “You’re right. I never cheated on my spouse, got involved with the Mob, and my Daddy never bought me a Pulitzer Prize.”
But, the analogy is this:
JFK created a whole new set or rules, a whole new road-map to the Presidential nomination of his party in 1960. And, we may be witnessing the same thing, fifty years later, from Sarah Palin.
John Kennedy went after the Vice Presidential nomination in 1956, in a failed attempt to be Adlai Stevenson’s running mate. It wasn’t so much that he was unsuccessful (the nomination went to Estes Kefauver instead), but what he learned along the way in setting himself up for his parties’ Presidential nomination in 1960.
What he learned was this: The grandees of the Democrat Party would not, under any circumstances, allow a Catholic on the national ticket. The Dixie-crats in particular where antipathetic. But, even the East Coast Elite found the young JFK too much to take: Eleanor Roosevelt, in particular, found him loathsome (as, among other things, the second son of the then-reviled Joseph Kennedy), calling him “that little piss-ant”.
Believe me, pre-1964, you went absolutely nowhere in national Democrat politics without the blessing of Eleanor Roosevelt. Think of her (before her death) as Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, Jesse Jackson, Barack Obama, Pinch Sulzberger and John Kerry all rolled into one big, fat ball of influence.
This put the entire power structure of the old New-Deal bosses out of reach to Senator Jack Kennedy. Now, remember, this was in the days before the ubiquitous state primary elections. Roughly half the states chose their nominee based on a caucus of the party bigwigs, New York in particular. Chatting up the friends of Eleanor Roosevelt called for the retail politics that JFK and his family money had a hard time acquiring. So, JFK, having learned that his resources were better spent on the Wholesale politics of advertising, media manipulation and advance men, focused instead on the Wholesale politics– the popular elections held in Primary states.
Prior to JFK, most serious presidential politicians rather avoided the primary states. They accounted, at that time, for a minority of the delegates, and it made the election season somewhat longer and much more expensive. It required actual campaigning, movement, travel and advertising– things most presidential aspirants in the mid 20th-century had little of. JFK changed all that. Among other things, Jack Kennedy was the first to introduce the phenomenon of his own Campaign Jet, the “Caroline“. He could go as easily between Washington and San Francisco as Hubert Humphrey could go from Madison to Milwaukee.
Kennedy by-passed paying attention to Roosevelt and her tong. Instead, he spent his time in Wisconsin and West Virginia, slurping up chits in the form of donations to local races, and flooding the field with advertising and public relations. Hubert Humphrey complained that going up against JFK and his money made him feel like “a mom and pop grocery store going up against A&P”. These were the two states with early significant Primaries, and he knew he’d have a shot in heavily Catholic Wisconsin, which came first on the slate, and a week later in West Virginia, where his World War Two veteran status would come in handy. If he could make a big stink out of winning these primaries early, he’d have a shot at convincing the party leaders in the other, non-primary contests.
He won both states handily, and changed forever the way the public, and the party big-shots, looked at presidential primaries. And Elanor Roosevelt was politely shown the back of the bus.
*     *     *
Sarah Palin knows that any conservative won’t get an even break in the national press and media. She knows they despise not only her –and they show their contempt gleefully and openly with Sarah– they hate all conservatives. So trying to suck up to them can only lead (sooner or later) to any conservative’s Katie Couric moment. It is assured.
So, in watching her in the news coverage over the last forty-eight hours, we might be witnessing a “revolutionizing” of the way the whole process is done–; Just like JFK.
Just as JFK knew he’d never get the Eleanor Roosevelt gang on his side, and he would thus have to figure out how to get the nomination without it, Sarah Palin knows she can’t use the old routes that involve the national press and media. They are off-limits to her. She must plow a new and untrod road.
I have sense, too, that this might be all very deliberate, cunning, and months in the planning. And in this thought process, she might actually be ten steps ahead of all the other potential candidates.
If I were her, and had the name recognition, the league upon league of mis-perceptions, and the financial and personnel resources, I think I might try to fashion a similar approach– that is, something that up-ends the way a nominee is chosen in totality.
In especial, I find it fascinating that all the Ed Gillespies, and the Karl Roves, and all the other antique professional party-men had already decided she wasn’t running because she was evidently eschewing the fifty-year old nostrums that simply everyone must follow to the nomination. It reminds me of the Polaroid people telling everyone not to buy a digital camera because you’ll need a computer to use it: They couldn’t see the future while it was happening in front of their faces.
Wouldn’t it be fascinating, though, to see Sarah Palin completely revolutionize the way a candidate connects with the public, and change forever the 2-year long process of finding a nominee. I don’t know what she’s got up her sleeve, but, I will say this:
It could be damned fun to watch, especially if she leaves the national, old-geezer media gasping for air in her wake… Just like Eleanor Roosevelt was left by JFK back in 1960.

Bristol Dating Rumor Refudiated

Posted by ehvogel on May 27, 2011

According to to website Rumor Fixed:

The National Enquirer is living in la la land this week with a ludicrous report that Bristol Palin and Kyle Massey are secretly dating.

“Sarah Palin and daughter Bristol are at war over Bristol’s new boyfriend – Disney cutie patootie Kyle Massey!”

Bristol, 20, and Kyle, 19, became friends when they appeared on last season’s Dancing with the Stars and secretly began dating.

And sources say their relationship is what led to the new BIO Channel reality show featuring Bristol, Kyle and Kyle’s big brother Chris.

RumorFix can confirm that the two did become friends while on Dancing, and they are shooting a reality show together, but anything beyond that is completely fictitious.

RumorFix, unlike some people, decided to check up on this rumor by reaching out to Kyle’s mother, Angel. She tells us the Enquirer report is bologna.

“They are not dating,” she reveals while laughing. “They’re good friends. I understand the media wants to push sales or whatever, but no, they’re not dating.”

Angel goes on to say, “Both of our families gelled during Dancing with the Stars. Sarah would be in the audience cheering for Kyle, and we’d be in the audience rooting for Bristol. We all became close.”

Mama Massey adds, “The Palins are really funny, nice and genuinely warm to us.”

Restoring the Good in America!

Posted by Ron Devito on May 27, 2011

Governor Palin today posted on Facebook:

Our nation is at a critical turning point. As we look to the future, we are propelled by America’s past. It’s imperative that we connect with our founders, our patriots, our challenges and victories to clearly see our way forward. A good way to do this is to appreciate the significance of our nation’s historic sites, patriotic events and diverse cultures, which we’ll do in the coming weeks on our “One Nation” tour.

We’ll celebrate the good things that bring Americans together; those things that will give us the needed strength to meet the heady challenges ahead. I’ve said many times that America doesn’t need a “fundamental transformation,” instead we need a restoration of all that is good and strong and free in America! So, together let’s prepare ourselves for the days ahead by reminding ourselves who we are and what Americans stand for.

We’ll celebrate the meaning of our nation’s blueprints, our Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, which are the threads that weave our past into the fabric necessary for the survival of American exceptionalism. Our founders declared “we were born the heirs of freedom,” and despite our difficulties and disagreements, we remain one nation under God in freedom, indivisible. Through visits to historical sites and patriotic events, we’ll share the importance of America’s foundation.

We encourage you to support the pro-America events we’ll be privileged to participate in during these coming weeks. Discover the ties that bind Americans, our history, our traditions, and the exceptional nature of our country!

Palin announces national bus tour

Posted by loricalabrese on May 27, 2011

After the announcement of a debut film, Sarah Palin has also announced a national bus tour. Palin will hit the road on Sunday in what some are dubbing the possible beginning of a 2012 presidential bid.

As stated on the SarahPac website, “This Sunday, May 29th, Governor Palin and the SarahPAC team will begin a trip through our nation’s rich historical sites, starting from Washington, DC and going up through New England. The “One Nation Tour” is part of our new campaign to educate and energize Americans about our nation’s founding principles, in order to promote the Fundamental Restoration of America.”

The tour could set a possible tone for Palin’s run–a tone of restoration. On the SarahPac website, Palin says, “I’ve said many times that America doesn’t need a “fundamental transformation,” instead we need a restoration of all that is good and strong and free in America! So, together let’s prepare ourselves for the days ahead by reminding ourselves who we are and what Americans stand for.”

Although the former Governor of Alaska has not announced her presidential intentions, many signs are pointing to yes. A film highlighting Palin’s tenure as Governor of Alaska will debut in Iowa next month; the Palins have reportedly purchased a home in Scottsdale, Arizona, which many see as Palin’s future campaign headquarters; the SarahPac website was redesigned; and Palin told Greta Van Susteren on Fox News’ On the Record that she has that fire in her belly.

Other details of the tour have yet to be released, but one thing’s for sure, Palin supporters are clamoring to find out the exact stops.
