Gov. Palin reveals a big clue about her Sept. 3 speech

A tantalizing Thursday tweet from Sarah Palin:

I’ll be talking about this and more on September 3rd. 

Which followed this tweet:

America is waiting for the President to make good on this promise. 

Expect that TEA Party speech of Gov. Palin’s to be quite the barn burner.

Perry Poll Decline Commences. Palin Holds Steady From Solid Base

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

This new poll has Perry well below the hype heights of other recent polls which has him at ridiculous stratospheric levels just after he announced. There is every reason to believe he will do “a Bachmann” and drop down like she has to 8% in this poll and under attack from the GOP in Iowa (“cut the Obama rock star crap Bachmann”) of all places.
Palin meanwhile is at 11-13% in Gallup, PPP (polling GOP voters of course) and Reason-Rupe. This is a solid base for someone who has not declared and there is every reason to believe that should she declare she will pick up more support-which support will not be subject to near immediate collapse after vetting as no one on earth has been vetted more than Palin.
Interestingly, the latest Pollster  aggregate is showing-for the first time  in a very long time- the possible first signs of a poll recovery for Palin. If the PPP poll, which is distorted by the over weighting of Dem’s they poll, is removed from the aggregate, then the chart shows an upward movement-this bears watching.

Also, the aggregate contains the ridiculous CBS and NBC polls which are the only ones with a “neutral” option which lowers Palin’s favorables to a ridiculous degree. If they were removed the graph would be showing a significant  rise.

“Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney holds a 20 percent to 18 percent edge over Texas Gov. Rick Perry among Republicans and Republican-leaning voters in the latest Reason-Rupe Public Opinion Survey.
Two potential candidates not currently in the race, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (12%) and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (8%), placed third and fourth among Republicans asked to name whom they would favor if the GOP primary were held today. They were followed by Rep. Michele Bachmann (8%), Rep. Ron Paul (7%), Herman Cain (4%), Newt Gingrich (3%), former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (2%, but no longer in the race), former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman (1%), former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum (<1%), and former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson (<1%). Approximately 16% of Republican voters are undecided.
This Reason-Rupe poll  surveyed a random, national sample of 1,200 adults by telephone (790 on landlines, 410 on cell phones) over August 9-18, 2011. The overall results have a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. The GOP presidential primary poll question surveyed 419 adults who self-identified as Republican and “lean-Republican”; that specific question has a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.
Reason-Rupe Republican Primary Presidential Poll
Responses to “If you were voting today in the 2012 Republican presidential primary, which one of the following candidates would you favor?”
  • Mitt Romney 20%
  • Rick Perry 18%
  • Sarah Palin 12%
  • Rudy Giuliani  8%
  • Michelle Bachmann  8%
  • Ron Paul  7%
  • Herman Cain  4%
  • Newt Gingrich  3%
  • Tim Pawlenty  2%
  • Jon Huntsman  1%
  • Rick Santorum <1%
  • Gary Johnson <1%
  • Undecided 16%
Below is a chart of recent national polls listing various GOP hopefuls, updated to reflect the new Reason-Rupe findings:
The above chart shows that Perry’s numbers soar when Palin and Giuliani are not included in the list of candidates (they were not listed in either the Rasmussen or Gallup polls). This suggests Perry may regain a lead over Romney if it becomes clear that Palin and Giuliani will not join the race.
Tea Party favorites Michele Bachmann and Ron Paul came next with 8 percent and 7 percent of respondents respectively. This is especially interesting since Paul and Bachmann came within 152 votes of each other at the Ames Iowa Straw Poll, with Bachmann winning. Paul consistently does well in straw polls, leading many pundits to contend this simply is a result of his being better able to mobilize supporters to come out to events. However, these new Reason-Rupe poll findings suggest that Paul’s competitive standing with Michelle Bachmann extends well beyond his strong showing in Iowa.

Ludicrous Alana Goodman At Commentary; “Palin Would Get 34%” Vs. Obama

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

Commentary has an article up by someone named Alana Goodman which gets right to the point “Pew Poll; Palin has no chance.”

She digests the latest Pew Poll and makes the following declarations

1.Palin probably won’t run

2.If she did run she would get a maximum of 34% in the presidential election “if  she managed to win over every single person who was merely open to voting for her” So we could expect the 34% to be much less by following Goodman’s analysis.

It is of course worse than ludicrous to present that any GOP candidate, running against what it turning out to be an extremely unpopular president, in an election year which may see an unemployment rate at a level which is historically a marker of doom for candidates running for re-election, would get 34% of the vote-or less.

It is the sign of an immature, inexperienced commentator who is letting bias distort legitimate analysis. At the very least, to make her article have a shred of credibility, instead of quoting Poltiico, a notoriously anti-Palin site, she could have put these sort of polls into perspective. Any journalist (as opposed to a journolist) worth their salt would know that opinions this far out have little credibility as voters return to tribal support in the voting booth.

To compound the articles total Beltway type arrogance Goodman goes on to prescribe to GOP voters what  as to how they should think when deciding on a candidate. 

Picks the lower level of support for Palin  (11% instead of the 13% in the PPP poll) doesn’t mention that Palin is ahead of Bachman in both Gallup and PPP, has 41% support in a head to head poll with Obama in the CNN poll, and decries the 11% but is OK with Romney’s poor showing in the poll. That No GOP candidate has even a third of voter support would, one would think, give her pause.

Here is Palin’s polling in Ohio from PPP (D) Polls which further makes Goodman’s theme ridiculous;

PPP Ohio 2012 Republican Poll: Net Favorability Ratings: Palin +41%; Perry +35%; Bachmann +26%; Romney +22%; Cain +21%

We’ve seen this before-Reagan had no hope in 1980, was the GOP’s worst choice and in election year was 30% behind Carter in the polls-we saw how that worked out for the commentators who were the likes of Goodman then

Obama’s targeted groups not enthused…

Posted by Roderic Deane on August 26, 2011

While totally predictable, recent polling has suggested that the core, targeted constituencies of Barack Obama are less than enthused with his record. According to a Neil Munro post at the Daily Caller today:

The bloc of “unmarried women, people of color, and younger voters — comprises a rapidly growing majority of the eligible voting population in this country … [but they] are not hearing an economic narrative that speaks to their problems and concerns or convinces them that their leaders have the ability to solve those problems,” says the Aug. 24 report titled “Creating a New Economic Narrative; Engaging the Rising American Electorate for 2012.”

Munro goes on to suggest that the Obama administration’s outreach to these groups is being eroded by union displeasure, as voiced by AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka on Wednesday:

…fewer working-class voters will turn out in 2012 unless Obama can persuade them that their votes can change government policy. “Give them the narrative about why it will work,” he said at a press breakfast sponsored by The Christian Science Monitor.

Meanwhile, the Obama campaign’s Project Vote effort says it will work to ”engage key demographic groups, such as African Americans, Women, Youth, Latinos, LGBT, Veterans, Asian Americans and others.”

I have an idea. How about dumping the Obama agenda and getting behind a true, market-based advocate like Sarah Palin? I’m going to quote Rush Limbaugh: “Conservatism works every time it’s tried!” Sarah understands the power of the free-market and also understands the oppressive nature of governmental regulation. I’m going to dedicate this Sunday’s The Roderic Deane Show to examining the disastrous effects of government regulation and why it should be at the very top of the list of any conservative candidate.

If Sarah could spur energy production, reign in government regulation and end out-of-control government programs like Obamacare, she will ignite a period of economic growth unseen since Ronald Reagan’s term as President. Further, she chafes at the idea of crony capitalism, which seems to haunt my vaunted Governor, Rick Perry. In all good conscience, I cannot endorse Rick Perry for the Presidency. His tendencies remind me too much of George Bush’s “compassionate conservatism” and his record suggests a willingness to support crony capitalism. Conservatism doesn’t need an adjective, it only needs an exclamation point!

Sarah Palin’s accomplishments offer none of the concerns that Rick Perry’s do. All you have to do is read the record. The truth will set you free!

On the Future of Libya

Posted by Ron Devito on August 25, 2011

Governor Palin today posted on Facebook:

We join the Libyan people in gratefulness as we hear of Col. Gaddafi’s defeat. The fall of a tyrant and sponsor of terrorism is a great day for freedom-loving people around the world. But the path to democracy in Libya is not complete, and we must make wise choices to ensure that our national interests are protected.

First, the White House needs to avoid triumphalism. Gaddafi may be gone, but the fighting may not be complete. As we’ve seen in Kosovo, Bosnia, Iraq, and Afghanistan, we must not celebrate too quickly. There are now mounting concerns that we will see tribal and sectarian fighting in Libya like we saw in Iraq. Let’s hope that is not the case, but it must be prepared for.

Second, we must be very concerned about the future government that will emerge to take Gaddafi’s place. History teaches that those with the guns usually prevail when a coalition overthrows a tyrant. We must remember that military power ultimately resides with the rebel commanders. This should be a source of some concern. The armed opposition to Gaddafi is an outgrowth of a group called Islamic Libya Fighting Group, and some rebel commanders admit that they have Al Qaeda links. The rebel fighters are from different tribes, and they have a variety of political views. Some are Islamists, some appear to favor some sort of western democracy. We should work through diplomatic means to help those who want democracy to come out on top.

That said, we should not commit U.S. troops or military assets to serve as peacekeepers or perform humanitarian missions or nation-building in Libya. Our military is already over-committed and strained, and a vaguely designed mission can be the first step toward a quagmire. The internal situation does not seem stable enough for U.S. forces to operate in a purely humanitarian manner without the possibility of coming under attack. Troop deployment to Libya would mean placing America’s finest in a potentially hostile zone that is not in our vital national security interest.

Finally, we must make sure that terrorist groups don’t try to co-opt the revolution, as Al Qaeda is trying to do in Syria. We should continue to use our intelligence assets to monitor the situation in Libya to ensure that potentially dangerous weapons are secured, and that terrorist organizations such as Al Qaeda don’t gain a foothold in Libya.

People of Libya, be vigilant. May this opportunity be used to build a free and peaceful country.

Paul Sracic: Don’t count out Sarah Palin

Posted by joshpainter on August 24, 2011

– by Josh Painter
Political science professor Paul Sracic, in a commentary published by, admits that until just a few days ago, he did not consider Sarah Palin to be a “serious” candidate. But now he says that if she gets into the presidential race, she’ll be “a formidable candidate” – not just in the GOP primary, but in the general election should she win her party’s presidential nomination. What changed his mind? Something in SarahPAC’s “Iowa Passion” video:

In the video, the initial scenes of bright sunlight shining over Iowa cornfields lead into uplifting images of young people and young couples with children smiling and enjoying the day at the Iowa State Fair. In a phrase, it is “Morning in America.” Those of us of a certain age remember the Reagan campaign’s seminal commercial of that name, an advertisement that helped to secure his crushing landslide re-election in 1984.

Of course, since Reagan was already completing his first term in office, his commercial referred to what he claimed to have already done. Palin, on the other hand, is speaking to the future. In quasi-religious terms, she criticizes the lack of “faith” that Washington has in the American people, while confidently championing the coming “great awakening.” What this shows more than anything else is that Palin understands what Reagan always knew: Americans want to be optimists. More important, she is media savvy enough to know how to deliver that message in a captivating fashion.

My point is not that Palin is Reagan. They differ in many obvious and substantial ways.


Palin, however, has risen to prominence in a different age. Twenty-four-hour news stations provide much more exposure in a shorter period. Compared to Bachmann and Perry, at least, Palin is a veteran on the political scene. More significant, however, is the fact that, like Reagan, Palin has the correct media skills for the age.


What is most Reaganesque about Sarah Palin, however, is that on camera, her optimism about America appears natural. This is a quality that should not be underestimated, since it allows her the leeway to be negative without turning off voters by appearing mean-spirited. This offers at least the possibility that, despite her current low standing in the polls, she will be able to leap-frog over the more negative sounding Bachmann and Perry, and compete head-to-head with Romney.

Even more than they did in 2008, Americans want hope. What Palin’s handlers have in the former governor is a candidate they can cast in a pitch-perfect media campaign that blends a criticism of the Obama administration with a positive message about the future.

Prof. Stracic takes pains to point out that he is predicting neither a Palin presidency nor her nomination by the 2012 RNC convention. What he does make clear, however, is that Gov. Palin should not be counted out “before she has had a chance to campaign.” The political scientist concludes his opinion piece with a reminder that an ABC news poll in January 1980 showed Ronald Reagan far behind sitting President Jimmy Carter, down 30 points. And this was eight full months before Reagan had even won his party’s nomination.

Palin Led Tea Party Block At 25%/33% In Gallup/PPP Polls Perry at 25%/27%

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on August 24, 2011

The realistic way to consider these two polls is that Perry will, like Bachman, eventually drift down as the media hype slackens and he comes under the media blowtorch (unless that is his candidacy is unique and he runs away with it). 

Should that eventuate  and he stays with a solid level of support, as does Romney then the coalescing on the Tea Party grouping will be the key factor.

If Palin declares and has the 11 to 13% base in these polls,which should increase once voters see she is a candidate then the Palin/Bachman/Cain/Santorum block starts at  25%-33%.

As Bachman appears to have shot her bolt and at some point both Cain and Santorum will drop out then, as Palin picks up their support, Bachman’s supporters will realistically only have on place to go if they want their values represented and that is, in the main, to Palin.

There would of course be some bleeding to other candidates but given that even with Perry’s ascendency the Tea party block is still the largest in this scenario then it is surely to be expected the bulk of the 33% would go to an avowed Tea Party leader.

These two polls show a surprisingly strong level of support for Palin, and should she make the announcement that she is running on September 3rd, or sometime in September, then she has every chance of winning the nomination based on these two major polls, even if Perry increases his, support as long as Romney stays in the running right to the end.

Rep.Waters, The Hell bound Tea Party and Palin

Posted by villagejack on August 23, 2011

A letter posted August 21 in our local paper said a small group of neighbors in this central Florida area were starting a movement to counteract the Tea Party. This group will be called “Rebuild the American Dream”. The next day, Congressman Maxine Waters of California said “Tea Party party members should “go to hell” and I am going to show them the way.” She was speaking to a group called “Rebuild the American Dream”.  Coincidental?  No, just go to the website “Rebuild the American Dream” and voila, what appears is not a local group website, but a professional page put together by liberal socialists. The grass-roots Tea Party formed to start fighting both Republicans and Democrats who were spending our American way of life into oblivion.

The American Dream group is no local grass-roots organization, although that is what they want you to believe.

No, the American Dream folks were made possible by Planned Parenthood, MoveOn.Org, Progressives Org, Green for All, Living Liberally, Code Pink, Daily KOS, and The Agenda Project were just some listed of the total 80 organizations noted on the site. If this group was formed to continue building the American dream with those sponsors, you know what their agenda will be, “tax, tax, tax  as we know better how to spend your money then you do“. With liberals, all you need to do is follow the money to find out what is the real agenda.  Don’t believe the words that come out of their mouths.

In Sarah’s case just listen to what she says to know who she is and what she will do. Isn’t that refreshing?

President Obama, remember earlier this year when you condemned conservatives for what turned out to be their non-role in Congressman’s Gifford’s shooting incident? Would you please advise Democrat Congressman Waters to be more civil in her direct role in sending all of us Tea Party members  to hell? It would be nice if you did it publicly so we would know you are fair and balanced.  If you can’t get Waters to apologize, maybe you could intercede with God on our behalf?

We can’t wait for Sarah’s address to the Iowa Tea Party.  With fodder like Waters setting the stage, throw in Biden’s favorable comment on China’s abortion policy,  and with her tongue in cheek delivery style, she is going to have a field day!

Tony Lee: The Undecided

Posted by joshpainter on August 22, 2011

– by Josh Painter

Though some Palin supporters believe that Sarah Palin long ago made up her mind to run for president, she has been consistent in her replies to questions from the media, saying every time that she is still weighing her options. More recently she has indicated that she will reach a decision before October. At Human Events, Tony Lee examines some of the possible reasons why Gov. Palin could still be undecided:

Possibly because of family. Though her husband, Todd, has repeatedly said the family has “been tested,” and her other family members seem to be on board with the idea of her running, Palin became a grandmother again last week, so any last-minute objection on behalf of her family may give her pause about subjecting them to the rigors and scrutiny of a campaign.

Palin could also be “strategically” undecided. In other words, Palin knows that in a cycle in which information travels faster than in even the average news cycle, now more fragmented and compressed than ever, she has to pick the perfect time to enter the race in order to minimize her chances of fizzling out. In addition, entering the race at a later date would give her the advantage of seeing her potential opponents possibly wounded and damaged even as they pick up support.

On the flip side, as her detractors in the mainstream media, on the Left and in much of the GOP have said, Palin could also be strategically undecided about seeking attention. Because she does not have an organization of paid staffers and professional fund-raisers, she is not taken very seriously by much of the chattering class. Yet because she trusts that the suspense surrounding her decision will keep her relevant, critics feel, Palin is purposely drawing out her inevitable decision not to run just to remain relevant.

But perhaps Palin is undecided for a reason more in tune with her character. Does she want to effectively lead the Tea Party?

The anti-establishment energy is there, as was shown by Donald Trump​’s meteoric rise in the polls, Herman Cain’s positive intensity scores, Michele Bachmann’s straw poll win and Ron Paul​’s fervent followers. And while the Tea Party has prided itself on being a leaderless movement, this election cycle may be one in which that movement needs a leader for its objectives—such as reducing the size and limiting the scope of government—to be accomplished in the legislative arena.

But Palin may be reluctant to become the Tea Party’s leader because, as Steve Bannon, who directed The Undefeated, said, the biggest surprise about making the movie was how Palin never spoke about her record of reform and accomplishments in Alaska. To Bannon, this was so because “her parents raised her not to brag.” Seen in this light, as Palin has said, she may decide that it would be better to endorse a candidate who fits the exacting standards she often lays out.

But what if the Tea Party activists want her to be its face? She has, after all, accepted an invitation to headline a Sept. 3 Tea Party event in Iowa. What if Palin thinks no candidate fits her description of the right person to take on Obama in the fall? Or what if Palin, as her detractors have said, wants to remain in the spotlight, but sees that her core base of supporters would never forgive her, like lovers teased or scorned, if she chooses not to run?


In the final analysis, Lee concludes whether Sarah Palin has a burning ambition to be President, as those of us who support her believe, or whether she is just driven to remain a celebrity and make huge amounts of money, as those who have made it their business to disparage her cotend, “she may have no choice but to run in 2012. For now, though, she remains the great undecided.”
