John Hayward: The Paul Revere Trap

Posted by joshpainter on June 6, 2011

– by Josh Painter

In a Human Events Monday
opinion piece John Hayward has a little fun at the Palin-hating elite’s expense, as he wrings his hands, with tongue in cheek, over “an obvious act of cruelty from Sarah Palin”:

I can believe she was thinking only of her intended audience when she told the Tea Party to “party like it’s 1773.” Of course liberals have no idea when the original Tea Party occurred, and raced to demonstrate their deplorable ignorance of history by attacking her for saying it. She didn’t know they were going to make fools of themselves. She was thinking about the Tea Party enthusiasts she was speaking to, not ignorant lefty bloggers and talking heads.

But this time… this time was on purpose. She knew exactly what she was doing when she said Paul Revere “warned the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms by ringing those bells, and making sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that were going to be secure, and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed.”

She knew that lefty bloggers and media talking heads would walk right into it. She knew they are as ignorant of the Revolution as they were of the Tea Party, and remember nothing about Paul Revere except “one if by land, two if by sea.” She knew damn well they wouldn’t be able to resist the opportunity to stick their noses in the air and arrogantly inform their audiences that she needs to go back to school and take high-school history over again.

There’s no way I’m letting Palin slide on this…

[…]

Frightened liberals flailing around for ways to attack Palin should give up on writing ridiculous diatribes about how she’s endangering the lives of reporters by refusing to provide the exact route of her “One Nation” tour in advance. It’s manifestly absurd to keep bleating that she has no “substance” when she belts out impromptu policy speeches every time she hops off that bus. Instead, you should be complaining about her cruel genius for making liberals look stupid. Only Anthony Weiner can hold a candle to her at that… and she’s obviously having much more fun doing it.

Heh.

CBS and Others Review “The Undefeated”

Posted by Adrienne Ross on June 6, 2011

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

The Undefeated, the film about Governor Palin, is scheduled to premiere this month. Some people have already had the opportunity to see a screening, and reviews have been quite positive. Even CBS praises the film as one that highlights the fact that Governor Palin is qualified to be President of the United States.

Jan Crawford writes:

Sarah Palin is either running for President or she should be: That’s the takeaway from “The Undefeated,” a new movie about Palin’s life and leadership set to hit theaters next month.

Billed as a documentary – though told in a fast-paced and dramatic style – the two-hour movie is an unabashed defense of the former Alaska governor that leaves the distinct impression her presidential candidacy not only is possible, but inevitable.

Stephen Bannon, the movie’s creator, took on the project after Palin’s aides approached him late last year about making a series of videos on Palin. He proposed a movie instead, and bankrolled it himself. The final product, which I saw last week in a screening for a few reporters, gives Palin the introduction she never really had when the Hockey mom from Wasilla became John McCain’s running mate in 2008.

By tracing her political rise in Alaska, her battles with Big Oil and the Republican establishment, and her accomplishments as governor, the movie argues one overriding point: Sarah Palin is a seasoned executive who is more than qualified to be President.

It also adds context to her bus tour of historic sites and patriotic events, which she says she undertook to remind people about the principles America was founded on and the importance of the Constitution. Critics have questioned whether the tour is, in fact, just a big publicity stunt, but “The Undefeated” shows video of a young Palin echoing some of those same themes 20 years ago, when she was a rookie on the stump campaigning for office.

That’s one of the things I found most striking about the movie. Since Palin burst on the national scene in 2008, critics have portrayed her as an unformed and uninformed political thinker, suggesting someone just crammed her head with these ideas and unleashed her on America.

But “The Undefeated” goes a long way towards debunking that tired narrative. It shows an unbroken line in her thinking over the past two decades. The things she’s saying on her bus tour about freedom, free markets, fiscal responsibility and the proper role of government are the same things she’s been saying ever since she entered into politics.

[…]

Regardless of where you come down, though, here’s one thing both sides should agree on: It certainly looks like Palin is running for President. As she says in a speech in the movie’s very last scene: “Mr. President, game on.”

But will she?

Sarah Palin: A Boffo Performance

Posted by reagantman on June 6, 2011

-from Patrick’s World USA

“I thought she was a boffo performance today. It was the first time that I ever saw her and thought this woman is a serious, if she decides to run, candidate for president and a serious possiblity to be president.”Chris Wallace, Fox News Sunday


Someone asked me during the weeks following Obama’s election in 2008 if I thought that Sarah Palin’s mistakes on the campaign trail would damage her ability to be a viable candidate in 2012. I explained that it was important to look at all politicians and study their performances along their respective campaign trails to get a frame of reference. Politicians speak for a living. They say millions of words and phrase their arguments and answers to questions in thousands of ways. It is statistically impossible for any human being to be perfect with every word and every answer. I pointed out that if you applied the same standard to Joe Biden, he probably wouldn’t be viable as a vice president.

Then I made my signature point. I explained that people were trying to project her future by putting under the microscope a couple of missed answers during the Katie Couric interview (which I also pointed out contained nearly three hours of footage of Sarah Palin landing all the other questions). With this, I closed my argument. Sarah Palin is not a snapshot in time. She is an evolving candidate. In fact, she was one of the strongest, most exciting candidates the Republicans have run since Ronald Reagan. If you think she’s even just good or barely good now, wait until 2012. She’ll be a behemoth.

A lot of people didn’t agree with me back then, but they are starting to agree with me now.

Kirsten Powers, on Fox News today, said that Sarah Palin is bigger than she ever has been and that she is now stating the policy positions that she has formulated after putting her head down two years ago and studying policy. This is a paraphrase, as the transcript of what Powers said is not yet out. But she basically wins my argument for me. Sarah Palin was good in 2012. Today, she is a behemoth.

Tell me if I was right. On August 11, 2009 (nearly two years ago) I wrote this:

This blogger has always described her as an evolving candidate. Watching Sarah Palin go from Governor, to vice presidential candidate and to potential presidential candidate is like watching the part of Ronald Reagan’s political evolution that I missed because I was too young.

For those who don’t think she’s intelligent, you’re in for a big surprise. For those who think she is intelligent, you’re in for even a bigger surprise. Sarah Palin is not a figure frozen it time. The experience of a national campaign trail and the strength she gains from withstanding a smear campaign that no other American politician has had to endure is just the beginning.

This blogger has read her letters and writings. She communicates concisely when she needs to and she communicates esoterically when she wants. She can be a straight shooter or she can be a allusionist who uses literary or musical references to make her point. Those who disagree with her can’t hear her through their bias, so they ridicule her.

She has turned her Facebook page into a research paper. This blogger is made to feel lazy after reading the amount of research she has done on healthcare reform and Cap and Trade. It just so happens, these are the two biggest issues of the day. If Katie Couric interviewed her now, Palin might just well school her and school her severely.

Which brings us to today. Chris Wallace and others are finding their way past the brainwashing that Palin’s detractors have been perpetuating upon us for nearly three years now. Liberal and Establishment pundits and writers have wasted thousands of hours of air time and millions of keystrokes tearing this woman down with full knowledge that Palin would evolve into what she is today if they didn’t go all out to stop it.

They knew she’d be back. All the lies and all the hits have their genesis deep in the minds and hearts of fearful Palin detractors who had to prevent us from seeing the truth at all costs. They knew the minute she hit the trail in 2008, if they simply allowed people to see Palin as she really is that they would like her and trust her enough to vote for her for president some day. That baby had to die in the crib. Despite their intense effort to destroy her with their Herculean work effort to churn out hit piece after hit piece and  to mock her across the mainstream media and in the pop culture, they have failed.

They have never believed she was dumb or unelectable. They only wanted us to believe that so that they could continue to pursue their liberal and establishment agendas unimpeded by the one person who could blow the lid off the whole effort to keep America out of the hands of those who would expose these agendas as the morally and intellectually bankrupt ventures they really are.

Should Sarah Palin run for president, her policy positions are clear. Her answers to how to fix the economy are exactly what this country needs. Palin told Wallace:

What President Palin would do is cut the federal budget, making sure that we’re crowding out private sector investment. We will cut that spending. We have no choice. We’re going broke. We’re going bankrupt.

We have absolutely no choice. And cut the burdensome regulations and mandates that really quash an entrepreneurial spirit in America and do burden our businesses, and create uncertainly. And that’s why we kind of stuck in neutral now, why businesses can’t expand.

I would taxes. The second highest corporate tax rate in the world we are burden with. No, we need to cut that to incentivize businesses to stay here on our shores, in America. And not outsource all these jobs and opportunities.

And then one of the most important things, Chris, that we have to engage is unleashing our domestic energy production opportunities. It does come down to “drill, baby, drill,” in addition to an “all of the above” energy policy that really is non-existent in the Obama administration.

Energy is the key to prosperity, to security. And until we start tapping our domestic, conventional and alternative sources to energy, we’re never going to get there.

This is a message which should encourage an electorate looking for the right candidate. It is the Reagan message of reawakening our industrial giant. Palin has a plan that has already been proven to work.

Experts Back Sarah Palin’s Historical Account

Posted by Ron Devito on June 6, 2011

From the Boston Herald:

You betcha she was right!

THE BOSTON HERALD
By Chris Cassidy
Monday, June 6, 2011

Sarah Palin yesterday insisted her claim at the Old North Church last week that Paul Revere “warned the British” during his famed 1775 ride — remarks that Democrats and the media roundly ridiculed — is actually historically accurate. And local historians are backing her up.

Palin prompted howls of partisan derision when she said on Boston’s Freedom Trail that Revere “warned the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms by ringing those bells and making sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free.”

Palin insisted yesterday on Fox News Sunday she was right: “Part of his ride was to warn the British that were already there. That, hey, you’re not going to succeed. You’re not going to take American arms.”

In fact, Revere’s own account of the ride in a 1798 letter seems to back up Palin’s claim. Revere describes how after his capture by British officers, he warned them “there would be five hundred Americans there in a short time for I had alarmed the Country all the way up.”

CBS:Palin Is A Seasoned Executive-More Than Qualified To Be President

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on June 6, 2011

Yet another example of a turning tide of opinion towards Palin.This time from CBS (From Conservatives4Palin)

*********************************************************

CBS: Sarah Palin is a Seasoned Executive Who is More Than Qualified to be President.





An excellent piece by Jan Crawford at CBS News:
Sarah Palin is either running for President or she should be.
 That’s the take away from the “The Undefeated,” the new movie about Palin’s life and leadership set to hit theaters next month. Billed as a documentary–though told in a fast-paced and dramatic style–the two-hour movie is an unabashed defense of the former Alaska governor that leaves the distinct impression her presidential candidacy not only is possible, but inevitable.

Breaking:The Times Of London States Palin Is Coming To Britain-Wants To Meet Thatcher Then Go To Sudan

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on June 6, 2011

The Palins’ publicity tour is coming to Britain

Sarah Palin, former governor of Alaska, boards her “One Nation Tour” bus

And she wants to meet her political heroine, Baroness Thatcher

UPDATE FROM TEXASFORSARAHPALIN

“I am going to Sudan in July and hope to stop in England on the way.”
*
Last week at a New Hampshire clambake, according to an article in The Australian, Gov. Palin reportedly told Times of London correspondent Christina Lamb that she plans to travel to Sudan and possibly The UK next month.

Lamb was asking that familiar question — when does the potential 2012 presidential candidate think she may decide whether to enter the race — when the governor rather matter-of-factly disclosed her intentions to make another trip abroad:

Asked by The Sunday Times when she would decide, Palin replied: “Some weeks”.

She may first seek advice from another unconventional female politician, Margaret Thatcher. “I am going to Sudan in July and hope to stop in England on the way,” she said. “I am just hoping Mrs Thatcher is well enough to see me as I so admire her.”

If she’s going to Sudan, there’s a good chance that it will be as part of a Samaritan’s Purse mercy mission. Gov. Palin has worked with Rev. Franklin Graham’s charitable organization several times in the past, including a visit in December to Haiti. Samaritan’s purse has anoperation in South Sudan.

There has also been much speculation in months past about a possible Palin visit to Britain, but this is the first time the governor has mentioned it recently.

Full Transcript Of Chris Wallace’s “Boffo” Interview With Palin-A Game Changer

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on June 6, 2011

Chris Wallace did a wide-ranging, no holds barred interview with Sarah Palin on his “Fox News Sunday With Chris Wallace” program. He has in the past stated, when accused of “softballing” Palin, as a fellow Fox employee, that absolutely to the contrary he held back nothing.

After the interview Wallace told a Fox panel:
“I thought she was a boffo performance today. It was the first time that I ever saw her and thought ‘this woman is a serious – if she decides to run – candidate for President. And a serious possibility to be President.’


He subsequently stated onAmerica’s News Panel “ 
I’ve interviewed her a bunch of times now over the past two years, and I have never seen her as good, as impressive, I mean she’s always been an entertaining interview, but I have never seen her as good as specific as she was, whether it was the debt or the state of the economy, or the situation on the ground in Afghanistan.

I don’t think any fair minded person could look at that debate and not say that she is potentially a serious candidate for President of the United States. Now that doesn’t mean she’s gonna run, but this is the first time that I looked at her and I thought, she could be real player in a 2012 election.

Here now is the full transcript of the interview. As Wallace says-any fair minded person-must see that all the questions were of a standard that any candidate, including President Obama, would be expected to face. Face them she did and answer them well she did.

This is an historic interview and could well mark a major turning point in the voters impression of Palin.
