Governor Palin, Complete Package

Posted by Adrienne Ross on June 7, 2011

By Adrienne Ross –

The Complete Package. We’ve all heard that expression before, usually in sports. Once again sports afford us a life-lesson. In basketball, the complete package refers to the rare athlete who dominates both sides of the floor–is an offensive threat, a defensive menace, and, as the game is not just physical, possesses an acute awareness of the intense mental aspects of the sport. This athlete has incredible instincts which cannot be taught. She’s almost impossible to scout effectively because her skills are too varied. She is, therefore, the opposition’s worst nightmare.

I wanted to be that kind of player. I wanted to be unguardable. I wanted the people assigned to check me to discover that if they guarded me tightly, I’d drive by them. If they backed off me, I’d nail the jumper. If they played me to my left, I’d drive right, and if they took away my right, I could adjust and drive left. Offensively, talented players like this simply cannot be stopped–slowed down maybe, but never stopped. Opposing coaches generally resort to doing one of two things. They either double and triple-team her, relegating her to the role of passer so someone less talented has the daunting task of beating them, or they say, “We’ll let her get hers and stop everybody else because the 30 points she’ll drop won’t beat us.” I longed to be that offensive player they strategized about.

But even that wasn’t enough. There are two sides of the floor, and I wanted to dominate both. My true passion was defense. I wanted the players I was guarding to know they’d have to work for every point and every pass. I wanted them to see that I played defense sliding my feet, palms up, eyes on the dribbler’s midsection, not on the ball and not on the face, squatting low in proper defensive stance. I wanted playing defense to hurt. Nothing annoys me more, still, than lazy defenders.

The bottom line is that I wanted to be the complete package. The truth, however, for me and many others, is that this kind of athlete is special and comes along only once in a while. This kind of athlete leaves a mark and impacts the athletic landscape. We just don’t see this too often. Oh, we see good players–great players, even. But the complete package? Rarely.

Governor Palin, an athletic champion herself, is that political champion, too. She is the complete package, which is why 2012 hopefuls cannot hold a candle to her. It’s not that they don’t have anything to offer; it’s that they don’t have everything to offer. She does.

Taking a brief look at some of the people who have already thrown their hats into the 2012 ring, or are expected to, we’d be lying if we said some of them don’t have upsides. Some of them would make competitive national players. But America is in need of more than that. With crushing debt, skyrocketing unemployment, soaring dependence on foreign oil, diminishing freedoms resulting from over-reaching government, with the family structure compromised, and human life devalued, we need more than a competitive player; we need the complete package. And filtering through all the names being bandied about in the GOP, I see only one person who is that complete package: Governor Palin.

Some contenders are Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, Tim Pawlenty, Herman Cain, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, and Ron Paul. Among these we can find people with varied political experience on the state and national level, business owners, CEO’s, tea party advocates, and governors. That’s impressive and would be quite the resume of one given candidate. Unfortunately, in that list there’s no one who possesses the complete package. Not one person listed–standing as an individual–embodies all that America craves in a candidate. Unfortunately, among those individuals, juxtaposed with their strengths, we find Romneycare, Cap and Trade, knocking Paul Ryan’s Roadmap, a lack of executive experience, establishment-mongering, and flip-flopping. Some have run a business, but never led on the county level, city level, or state level. Some believe in reining in spending, but have never had to make the tough decisions involved. Some stand for the right principles, but lack the ability to capture the attention of those who need to hear those principles. While I believe that each of these people could be competitive against President Obama under the right conditions, a team always sends out its best player to take on a defending champion. And that list lacks the best player.

Governor Palin is that best player because she’s the complete player. She has twenty years of experience in politics, she’s been a city council member, a mayor, a governor, an oil and gas regulator, a business owner, and a VP nominee. She’s a mother, a military supporter, a tea party activist, a pro-life advocate. She’s strong on national defense. She’s taken on big oil, small ethics, and petty people bent on getting her off message. She’s an anti-establishment, independent thinker who is beholden to no one. She fires up the American people with a message that she delivers like no one else. Some would argue that the message speaks for itself, but I beg to differ. The messenger is as important as the message. Candidate Obama came forward with a message that contained not much more than vague “hope and change” and “spread the wealth.” The message was weak, his experience weaker, but people were drawn to the manner in which he–and his teleprompter–delivered it.

Governor Palin, on the other hand, has the right message, and she knows how to deliver it in a way that gets people to listen, to care, to act. She is the only person in the field who can do that, with the executive experience required, and the approval rating to back it up. She’s got a business background to boot, so she knows how to create employment, balance a budget, and stimulate income. In addition to that, Governor Palin has the fight within her that is needed in a presidential candidate. She recently said that although there are good candidates out there, she’s concerned that some don’t have the fight in them to take on the harmful agenda of Democrats, that some may settle in and go along to get along. Governor Palin doesn’t go with the flow for the sake of comfort or camaraderie. She’s a fighter; therefore, she need not look further to find that person with the fighting spirit. She is that person.

So far Governor Palin has not declared her 2012 intentions, but I speak for millions of Americans when I say she is the complete package we’re looking for. She’s that someone who comes along only once in a while. Like the opposing coach, the left strategizes to take her off her game because they discovered early that they couldn’t stop her. They have double and triple-teamed her. Even those on the right have conspired to make a passer out of her, hoping she will hand the ball off to someone else they can better manipulate because they know they won’t be manipulating her.

The Governor’s strengths outweigh those of others in the game. You know who they are. You know their stories. Yes, these candidates have bits and pieces, but she’s got it all. This is good news if she decides to run because right now, in America, we need it all. We need the complete package during the biggest season of our lives. We need Governor Palin.

Palin: “The Undefeated” Producer Stephen Bannon’s Bloggers Briefing

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on June 7, 2011

The Heritage Foundation hosted a bloggers briefing earlier today with Stephen Bannon, producer of the movie “The Undefeated”.  You may recall that this blog has published two previous posts promoting this epic film here and here. While Mr. Bannon made many statements about the film, I believe the most memorable statement is when he attempts to describe Sarah Palin and says “she is a woman of unique substance”.  Indeed she is Mr. Bannon, indeed she is.

Palin Has Huge Lead In Florida Poll Over Jeb Bush-Triples Support In Latest WashPost Poll nationwide

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on June 7, 2011

The Orlando Sentinel  ask readers:

2012 Republicans: Who should jump in?

“Last week former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney became the latest major candidate to enter the 2012 Republican race for president. The field also includes former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Sen. Rick Santorum, Congressman Ron Paul and businessman Herman Cain. Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman could declare soon. But some Republicans are worried that there’s no one in that group strong enough to defeat President Obama, and they want a more-electable candidate to jump in. Are you satisfied with the current field? If not, who’s your favorite undeclared candidate? “

They then ran on on-line poll listing prospective GOP candidates who have not as yet declared their intentions and asked readers to express their choice for 2012 candidate from amongst the list-with this result:

As can be seen not only did Sarah Palin decisively, and perhaps very surprisingly given his supposed popualrity as a former Governor of Florida, lead Jeb Bush 52% to 16% but beat all the other prospects combined-even the “none of the above” category.

According to an analysis by Conservatives4Palin  Palin has seen a substantial jump in her poll support:
As a commentator said-although she does have much ground to make up the fact that she trails President Obama by 17% points in thsi poll is meaningless in the overall scheme of things. Reagan trailed Carter by 30 points in election year. The poll that matters is Palin’s standing with the GOP voters who will determine who the nominee is in in tha area she had done strikingly well.

According to the Washington Post/ABC News, Governor Palin Has More than Tripled Her GOP Primary Support from April

The latest Washington Post/ABC News poll of Republican/Republican-leaning independentsshows that support for the Governor has more than tripled since its last poll in April:

Romney 21% (16%)
Palin 17% (5%)
Rudy 8%
Paul 6% (2%)
Gingrich 6% (2%)
Cain 4%
Pawlenty 4% (1%)
The percentage of Republican and Republican-leaning independents who would “strongly consider” voting for her in the primary is equal to Romney’s percentage and over 60% of Republican and Republican-leaning independents would either strongly or somewhat consider voting for her, Rudy, and Romney in the primary.
Her qualified/unqualified number has also improved by a net fifteen points since a low in February of 2010. She still has a long way to go but at least we’re seeing progress.”
These two polls re-inforce the trend to Palin which can be seen here

Palin Towers Above Weinergate Like A Moral Giant-Even Behar Agrees

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on June 7, 2011

After the tawdry confession of Anthony Weiner the need for Sarah Palin to run for president has never been starker, clearer, sharper and more vital.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

If even Joy Behar, who has been a vociferous critic of Palin, can state-after Barbara Walters made a ludicrous comparison of Palin and Weiner- “there is no comparison, I have to defend Palin and say there is no sex scandal in her background.” then it is finally starting to filter through to even the most partisan on the left that the coming election is about morality as well as economics.

The economy will have “headwinds” as the embattled President 9.1 so describes them, and even with a change of administration and a new emphasis on low taxation, balanced budgets, entitlement reform there is no magic bullet. Rather,with the right reforms in place, the economic healing can commence.

However, whilst this would be taking place a different kind of healing is required-the righting of the moral compass of society. Whether the center/independent voters totally agree with the various aspects of the right to life concept, welfare dependency as a moral issue concept, personal economic responsibility, and a renewed emphasis on godliness in our general attitudes, there are signs that enough would respond to give electoral victory to a Palin candidacy.

This recognition that there is a malaise in society is complemented by even the hardened feminists coming to the conclusion that Palin has been unfairly targeted because of her gender and,dare it be said, a pride in Palin’s accomplishments that has transcended leftist ideology. Again, whilst it would be too much to expect those who hold those views to vote for Palin they  may be part of the healing dialogue.

The “progressive” left,e.g. at Daily Kos are beating their collective breasts as to how they were “hoodwinked” by Weiner, have defended a false idol of progressivism and “have egg our collective faces”. They basically are saying they won’t be so dogmatic in their support of such individuals next time ” and should avoid the trap of a “tribal defense response.”

It is to be hoped that this self awareness, born of being deceived, presages a new realism and, it is fondly to be hoped, a new awareness that bashing Palin for every perceived fault, calling her every sexist, misogynist name, attacking her family, her faith, making up terrible lies about her, is exactly the same as their “tribal” response to what they perceived as a false attack on Weiner.

Palin represents the best chance for the two vital things which the voters might consider for the next presidential election

1.A renewal of America’s promise through a spiritual renewal led by a person with undeniably honorable spiritual and high ethical values nature untarnished by personal scandal

2.A renewal of America’s economic potential by releasing the natural forces of the economy which are bound now by bureaucracy, outdated concepts and a blind allegiance to Keynes.

Media Attacks Palin Over Revere Ignores Obama’s Historical U.S./U.K. Revisionism

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on June 7, 2011

The leftist media/blogosphere has gone into paroxysm’s of snide elitist comments, disdain and snark, at the comments Sarah Palin made about Paul Revere. They used her statement, in a typical knee jerk reaction without considering the actual facts to once again “prove” to their and their readers minds that Palin is an idiot.

Having been burned in the past when they attacked Palin for saying the Tea Party should “party like it is 1773” which was historically correct didn’t matter a whit to the legions of Palin haters.Especially so for the “lame Stream media’ who rankled at being led around like puppy dogs following Palin’s bus tour all across the eastern states.

That some have taken a deeper look at the statement and found that, yes, it was open to interpretation and Palin did indeed have aspects of the historic events right has not stopped the overarching theme most of the media keep pounding away at her with.

There is one positive aspect of this as, once again, the media has shown its absolute bias where anything relating to Palin is concerned and its absolute ignoring of anything remotely similar which issues from President Obama.

At the state dinner in England Obama said according that there had been “smooth sailing” between the two countries since the War of 1812.

Smooth sailing also seems to have included British support of the Confederate States during the civil war The Trent Affair, the CSS Alabama affair where Britain ended up paying $15 million in reparations for damage caused to Union shipping by the British built Confederate warship. The Suez conflict where the Eisenhower administration forced the British and French armed forces,  and Israeli’s to hand the Suez Canal over to the Nasser dictatorship, was hardly an example of smooth sailing either

However, whilst the debatable Paul Revere anecdote by Palin will live on forever in liberal minds the 57 American states, the corpse-man,the speaking of Austrian and now “smooth sailing’ will not ruffle the placid waters of “progressive” Obama support waters ever. Contrast the British press, having no such lap dog approach, excoriating the speech
