The aftermath of Sarah saying NO

Posted by Roderic Deane on October 9, 2011

Monologue from today’s Roderic Deane Show:

It’s been a tough week for Palinistas out there, including me. With the exception of a few concerning comments Sarah made in a recent conversation with Greta van Susteren, I still expected her to jump in to the race for the GOP nomination. Instead, she announced on Wednesday that she will not be seeking the GOP nomination, nor would she mount a challenge on a third-party ticket.

In her speech to Liberty University yesterday, she said:

After much prayer and serious consideration, I have decided that I will not be seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for President of the United States. As always, my family comes first and obviously Todd and I put great consideration into family life before making this decision. When we serve, we devote ourselves to God, family and country. My decision maintains this order.

She went on to say:

From the bottom of my heart I thank those who have supported me and defended my record throughout the years, and encouraged me to run for President. Know that by working together we can bring this country back – and as I’ve always said, one doesn’t need a title to help do it.

So, does that end it?

For me, the answer is NO. Sarah released her statement and, at the very same time, joined Mark Levin at the very beginning of his radio show. During her conversation with Mark, she stressed that fact that she will be out there helping common-sense conservatives get elected and doing everything she can to put an end to the Obama administration. I think that deserves at least one, big fist-pump, don’t you?

Entertaining the thought of running for the Presidency has to be a daunting thing, especially for someone who views public service with “a servant’s heart”. I think we can all attest to the fact that blind ambition fueled the rise of Barack Obama. What’s chilling is the fact that he pursued the Presidency after voting “present” on many, many issues. Now that he’s in the Oval Office, what has he done?

Well, for starters, he gave Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Timothy Geithner free reign to write the trillion-dollar stimulus bill, which, I might add, had absolutely no effect on our economy. After that, he abdicated his leadership and allowed Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi to write his own signature legislation, which we now call Obamacare. Now, he expects Congress to pass his jobs bill, which is just more of the same spend, spend, spend mentality!

Today, as we witness the protests on Wall Street and other financial centers throughout the United States, we must keep in mind one thing. Barack Obama’s roots are as a “community organizer”, or, better put, a community agitator. He has purposely supported anti-capitalist protests by giving sympathy to their cause, suggesting that their grievances are legitimate. By so doing, he has supports anti-American sentiment in our own country.

The irony of these protests comes with the death of Steve Jobs, founder and visionary leader of Apple Computers. Steve Jobs exemplified the power of free-market capitalism to transform our lives and yet the protesters want to limit an entrepreneur’s ability to succeed. Their stated goal is to strip the entrepreneur of the rewards of his or her success by levying a heavy tax on a company’s profits. In essence, they want to eliminate the entrepreneur’s motivation to succeed. This is complete madness!

To give these protesters a little history, Apple Computers was started in the garage of Steve Jobs with the help of Steve Wozniak. Together, these two individuals revolutionized the computer industry in ways that historians will look back on in amazement. As of the latest reports on the company, Apple Computers employs 49,400 people, 12,000 at their corporate headquarters alone.

If anything, we should be cheering on the entrepreneur. They are the ones who will bring our economy out of this terrible slump, not government.

Having said that, I think we need to be supportive of Sarah Palin’s decision not to seek the office of the Presidency. There has been a lot of caterwauling by a number of her supporters since her decision was announced. The has to stop. As Sarah said yesterday:

“You trust me to be leader of the free world but you don’t trust my decision? Come on!”

We need to trust Sarah now, as we have in the past. I have no doubt that she’s got some plans up her sleeve that will make us all proud.

…and that’s my two-cents worth for the week.

    Roderic, I RARELY listen to Bog Radio, mainly because I don’t have the time or the patience when I’m at the computer to just sit and listen and/or surf the Web. Also, truth be told, some shows are very slow and have little professional “zip!” Yours, however, today was just terrific! I listened all the way through – mainly ’cause I wanted to hear from all your great guests – sort of what I’ve been calling “the outer circle of the inner sanctum!” And no one disappointed, either; in fact, I learned a lot and gained a new perspective on this whole sudden upended state of affairs. I actually have some hope now that Palin’s vision/standards are worth fighting for, with or without her! God forbid, had any accident befallen her, would we have just abandoned the cause? I think NOT! And ESPECIALLY, listening to Peter Singleton, who upended his life and his work to establish a tremendous base in Iowa!! What a herculean task; but he, too, isn’t going to throw away all that tremendous experience and know-how just ’cause Palin’s no longer in the race for POTUS. He firmly believes that she’ll still play an significant role in 2012 – PLUS, the work to elect a majority in the Senate is now PARAMOUNT – as well, of course, as strengthening (or, at least, holding on to) our majority in the House. And, the big enchilada, replacing the Fraud-in-Chief once & for all!
