NRO reveals their bias

Posted by Roderic Deane on September 2, 2011

Although it may be coincidental, it seems odd to me that National Review Online would post this poll on the eve of Sarah Palin’s speech at the Iowa Tea Party event:

Who is the better conservative standard-bearer?

Palin 38 %

Perry 62 %

9,581 votes

I’m not suggesting that it’s not a legitimate question, I only question the timing. After all, THOUSANDS of Sarah Palin supporters and activists are on their way to Indianola, IA at this very moment. I doubt if their travel is going to put this poll in front of them as it normally would. I think the timing of this post reveals an NRO bias towards Rick Perry. What do you think?

When you have an absence of time…

Posted by Roderic Deane on September 2, 2011

We all have to manage our day, our week and our lives with the time available to us. It often puts tremendous constraints on what we can or can’t do. We must make choices and prioritize to make sure that our primary goals are met.

This is no different than one who chooses to run for President of the United States. The difference is that your choices in prioritizing your time are broadcast to the entire world. In addition, the entire world is now second-guessing your choices based on their own priorities. Would you want someone else that you don’t know to second-guess your priorities?

Sarah Palin was faced with a choice this week. “Do I invest my time with the Iowa Tea Party event or don’t I?” The event organizers have seemed to be extremely amateurish in their efforts and if I was Sarah, I would have wondered WTF?

An unconventional campaign means that you’re not always in control of events. What you have to insist on, however, is total control of your message. That maxim has to guide everything you do. If you allow someone else to diminish your message, you’re TOAST!

The Iowa Tea Party organizers started to see visions of grandeur. They thought that they could snap their fingers and anyone, ANYONE, would take them up on their invitation to speak. They had no idea what they had really done, which was to provide Sarah Palin supporters with a forum that allowed them to express their belief in her message.

Sarah Palin is seriously considering a run for the Republican nomination. She is trying to determine if she can prioritize what limited time she has to do that. It’s just like you and I. We have goals, we have existing priorities, and we have to determine how we can pursue other goals without diminishing our existing ones. It is no small feat, as we’ve all learned!

How would you like it if Laura Ingraham and Bill O’Reilly decided to re-prioritize your decision-making process? Do they have time to give you? When you’re faced with an absence of time, do you let other people tell you what to do?

I didn’t think so.

Governor Palin Arrives at C4P Meetup in Des Moines


Crowd at Machine Shed:
Peter Singleton:
AP just picked up Sarah’s C4P get together!…

URBANDALE, Iowa (AP) — Sarah Palin is making a surprise appearance at a suburban Des Moines restaurant.

And she was greeted there Friday night with chants of “Run, Sarah, run!”

Hundreds of fans jammed into the Iowa Machine Shed, with the backroom of the farm-themed restaurant overflowing, as people from as far away as Texas, Florida and California strained for a glimpse of the former Alaska governor.

Accompanied by her husband, Todd, she worked the room, shaking hands, posing for pictures and hugging babies.

Palin, the GOP’s 2008 vice presidential nominee, is considering a presidential run. She speaks to a tea party rally on Saturday in Iowa but is not expected to disclose a decision about her political future for another few weeks.

How Polls Are Distorted Against Palin:”Fox Poll Shock;74%Of GOP Voters Prefer Another Candidate Than Perry-96% Reject Bachmann

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on September 2, 2011

Not only do 74% of polled GOP voters who named a preferred candidate in the (at this link) latest Fox poll express a preference for another candidate than Rick Perry who scored a tiny 26%, but Perry was the candidate viewed as the second most extreme of all candidates when this was asked of all voters polled.

Previous high flyer Michele Bachmann, was rejected by a whopping 96% of polled GOP voters who expressed a preference for a candidate, and she was viewed as, by far, the most extreme of candidates by all polled voters.

Previous poll leader Mitt Romney is now rejected by 82% of GOP voters who expressed a preference for someone else or did not express any choice at this time.

The above, indisputable, poll analysis shows just how ridiculously the poll reports are presented, how distorted they are, how they can be manipulated, how agenda driven they are in their messaging, and how clearly the bias of the media outlet which commissions and presents them can be seen.

Fox has gone out of their way to headline this poll “most say Palin should stay out of the race.” They do not give the reasons they only asked the question about Palin, when they could have included Giuliani/Christie/Bush/Bolton-all leading personalities who have been touted as possible candidates. 

Neither did they ask if voters thought that any of the current candidates e.g. Cain/Santorum/Huntsman/Gingrich and even Bachmann, whom they have polling lower than in any other recent poll, should now drop out of the race.

Lost in the bias is the fact that Palin’s result in the Fox poll has stayed steady since their June poll, despite all the hoopla for previous flavor of the month Bachmann, and now Perry, and that she still is not a declared candidate with all the media antogonism still being thrown at her.

If Palin declares, and after Perry has been seen in a few debates, and has been subject to a tiny bit of the scrutiny that Palin has been relentlessly under, then a true picture of her strength vis a vis the other candidates, across a number of polls, will be able to be judged. 

In the meantime the Fox poll is just one in a number of deliberate distortions like Rasmussen’s, which doesn’t even include Palin in their polling.

A commentator at Weasel Zippers put it clearly and succinctly


cardinalmike says:

Anybody beside me find it curious that Fox didn’t poll these questions:
Should Mitt Romney drop out of the race?
Should Bachmann drop out of the race?
Should Guiliani get in the race?
Should Bolton get in the race?
Do you not find it more than coincidence that if you add up all the support for the other candidates, you get, surprise, surprise……………….72%
It was a stupid poll question intended to blunt Sarah’s big speech on Saturday and keep from declaring her candidacy. Didn’t work!

Report: Palin To Go To Korea For Major Foreign Policy Address

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on September 2, 2011

Josh Painter at Texans for Palin has this scoop-with the usual wait for official confirmation advice. If this report is correct  (and the link fleshes it out) this is a major foreign policy invite for Palin which recognizes her standing in the world. 

To be invited to such a prestigious forum as key note speaker puts, once again, to rest the lie that Palin is somehow “irrelevant” even more so if by October when the event is scheduled she is an official candidate for president of the United States.

AFP: Gov. Palin to visit South Korea

Will meet with South Korean presidential candidates and major politicians
If an AFP report is correct, Sarah Palin will visit South Korea for the first time to speak at a Seoul forum in October, the organizers said Thursday:

Maeil Business Newspaper said the former vice presidential candidate would make a keynote opening speech at the forum organized by the paper from October 11 to 13.

Palin will speak about the US economic crisis, policies to tackle fiscal woes and her country’s role in the world at a time when its superpower status is diminishing, the paper said in a news report.

“She also plans to meet with South Korea’s next presidential contenders and major politicians during the forum,” it said without elaborating

Also speaking at the forum will be Former British prime minister Gordon Brown and Larry Summers, ex-director of US President Barack Obama’s National Economic Council, the paper said.

Sarah Palin comes to Iowa to bury Perry, not to endorse him

Posted by joshpainter on September 2, 2011

– by Josh Painter
With apologies to William Shakespeare:

Friends, Republicans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Perry, not to endorse him.
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones;
So let it be with Perry. The noble Bachmann
Hath told you Perry is ambitious:
If it were so, it was a grievous fault;
And grievously hath Perry answer’d it.
Here, under leave of Bachmann and the rest, —
For Bachmann is an honorable Republican;
So are they all, all honorable Republicans, —
Come I to speak in Perry’s political funeral.
He was my friend, faithful and just to a degree:
But Bachmann says he was ambitious;
And Bachmann is an honorable Republican.

According to Scott Conroy, national political reporter for RealClearPolitics, Gov. Palin will make it clear that she if enters the presidential race later this month she will “vociferously” challenge Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s self-created image of solidarity with the tea party movement:

In her speech at the bucolic National Balloon Classic field in Indianola, Palin will lean on loaded phrases like “crony capitalism” and “permanent political class” in laying out her view of the U.S. political system’s deep-rooted ills, according to a source close to Palin and familiar with the content of the speech.

Though she will not call Perry out by name, Palin’s carefully couched rhetoric will leave the impression that she may soon draw more overt attention to one of the Texan’s potential vulnerabilities as a candidate: his history of doling out plum positions and other benefits to generous campaign donors during his nearly 11-year tenure as the nation’s longest serving governor.

“Part of what she’s going to be addressing is the frustration that many Americans feel that nothing gets done in Washington, D.C.,” a Palin source told RealClearPolitics. “We know that we have a debt problem and that we need to rein in government waste, and yet nothing ever gets done. Why is that? What special interests are involved?”

Palin’s speech before what will likely be one of the largest crowds of the campaign season to date will come on the third anniversary of her 2008 Republican convention address in the Twin Cities, when she accepted the vice presidential nomination in an almost universally acclaimed speaking performance.

In another likely indication that she still has her sights set on a White House run, Palin will also tout her record as governor of Alaska, particularly in ushering in what an aide described as “sudden and relentless reform” to state government.


Cry Havoc! and let slip the dogs of war.
