VIDEO:Texas TV Interviews Cruz Who Brilliantly Defends Palin Support & Asks For 5 Debates

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on May 30, 2012

Here is a major report from Texas station CBSDFW which covers last nights race between Ted Cruz and David Dewhurst in the Texas GOP primary for senator.

Frankly, Cruz comes across as dynamic and ready to do debate battle. He defends the support of Palin as an outside of Texas individual in the correct way: “I am appreciative of support from conservatives everywhere”.

Dewhurst is laughable when he accuses Cruz of having Washington insider support and the backing of big business-especially as he, Dewhurst, has put in $20 million from his reported $200 million personal fortune.

VIDEO: Heck Freezes Over – MSNBC/Politico Credit “Significant” Palin With Cruz’s Remarkable Result In Texas

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on May 30, 2012

finally MSNBC/Politico agree that Palin is a major force and can influence races whilst listing the recent races she has, undoubtedly influenced.

“Palin is a significant player” and now, suddenly she is not “irrelevant”.





Excerpt from transcript:

Sarah Palin is no Donald Trump!

Politico’s John Harris compares Sarah Palin’s goals to those of Donald Trump and discusses the 2008 vice presidential candidate’s influence on key 2012 Senate races, her success after her VP run and her long term goals to be a serious player in the Republican Party.


>>> event and ted cruz was able to force a runoff. says her endorsement gave a huge boost to the campaign. i’m joined by john harris .

>> good morning.

>> this is the latest in a string of successful endorsements by sarah palin . she gave a nod and backed indiana state treasurer richard mourdock . is the power of palin alive and well ?

>> you know, she is clearly on a hot streak. one question we always have with endorsements is to what extent is the endorser making a bet of who wins and to what extent it is driving the behavior of voters. it does seem clear that at least some voters do look to sarah palin . she gives sort of a good house keeping seal of approval.

>> they love it. i mean, by all rights she should have faded into the background. her performance is basically viewed as a cautionary tale. how has she done it?

>> well, coming off 2008 she built herself into a national and international brand that was controversial but certainly among conservative voters. it is clear that she is viewed favorably. it surprised some of us in the media in that sarah palin has not been as high profile for the past year since she made it clear that she wasn’t going to seek the republican nomination which she has been able to demonstrate in the work deciding where to put the chips and risk her own credibility. she demonstrated that without the publicity without the spot lights she can be a player.

Fashionista Taylor Marsh Goes Full Palin Derangement Syndrome (Again)

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on May 30, 2012

Perhaps it is the jealous woman syndrome rather than full-blown PDS that Taylor Marsh exhibits.  I am trying to fathom why a seemingly intelligent person  would write this:

Considering women are nowhere on the radar for camp Mitt, except for his stunning wife Ann Romney who can actually communicate with voters, my advice to the Romney team to pick Liz Cheney as his veep couldn’t be more jarring. It’s obvious Republicans haven’t gotten over Palin’s disastrous vice presidential candidacy, so a woman on the ticket seems less likely than ever.”


Marsh has written post after post denigrating Palin, but it is one thing to find supposed fault with Palin’s policies, and another to  go along with the myth that Palin’s VP campaign was “disastrous.” Either Marsh is ignorant of the facts, too lazy to check them, or deliberately ignoring them to perpetuate a myth for no clear reasons except PDS that I can see. BTW  her suggestion that Liz Cheney should be Romney’s VP is not a typo-she actually said it.

For the record, and for the umpteenth time, here is the exit poll analysis after the 2008 election. It clearly shows that Palin was a plus for the poor McCain campaign. That, allied with the opinion polls that showed that subsequent to Palin’s nomination, the McCain team actually surpassed Obama and who knows what the result might have been if the financial crisis had not taken place? Certainly, the result would have been much closer, if not a win for McCain/Palin.

How Marsh can justify her comment is beyond my ken but there is no logic to the writings of the Palin haters.

The left continues with their big lie that Palin cost McCain the 2008 election. This is often seen in comments from so called “Republicans” along the lines of “I was going to vote for McCain, but when he chose Palin I switched to Obama” and similar such nonsense.

Here are are the unbiased, unvarnished facts (with links to the full reports in red) from respected professional polling firms.The major issue was the economy, the Lehman brother’s collapse, and McCain “suspending” his campaign.

Palin’s addition to the ticket was a significant plus factor which kept McCain as close as he did until nothing could save him as the economy tanked and the bail-out inflamed passions.

It has been a disgusting spectacle watching the Schmidt and Wallace of the McCain team, through the mechanism of the Hollywood left’s hatchet job “Game Change’, put the blame for their incompetence on Palin.  The facts prove otherwise.


Yet those who cited Palin’s selection as a factor in their vote — 60% of all voters — favored McCain by 56% to 43%.
After the election, on Nov. 7, 2008, an article published by Rasmussen

Rasmussen Reports
Friday, November 07, 2008
Sixty-nine percent (69%) of Republican voters say Alaska Governor Sarah Palin helped John McCain’s bid for the presidency, even as news reports surface that some McCain staffers think she was a liability.


Gallup Daily: Election 2008

Despite the premise of “Game Change” – that Sarah Palin cost John McCain the 2008 presidential election – Gallup polls prove HBO’s assertion categorically false. Palin wasn’t the reason the Republicans lost the election. She’s the only reason they had a fighting chance up until the time McCain suspended his presidential campaign in late September.

Gallup polls from the last presidential race prove that once Palin joined the ticket on Aug. 29, 2008, McCain’s ratings steadily climbed to a point where the Republican ticket even outshined Democratic Sen. Barack Obama.
In the two weeks before Palin joined the McCain ticket, the Arizona senator drifted in the low 40 percentile range, mostly around 41, 42 and 43 percent, while Obama held as much as an 8 point lead at about 49 and 50 percent. Four days after Palin joined the ticket, however, McCain’s numbers climbed to 45 percent and Obama’s sank to 47 percent, narrowing the gap significantly from eight points to two.
Between Sept. 4-6, McCain and Palin actually overshot the Obama ticket by 3 percent with the Republicans in the lead at 48 percent and the Democrats at only 45. McCain consistently held that lead until Sept. 15, and then the candidates balanced out with Obama enjoying a mere three-point lead, and no lead at all from Sept. 22-24, when the numbers were tied at 46 percent.
Some were intrigued as to how McCain’s decision would play out in the polls, but once he suspended his campaign in late September he never recaptured the lead he enjoyed with the breaking news of recruiting Palin.
It was downhill from there.
McCain’s campaign was taken out of suspension, but it never actually got back off the ground. From then, the gap between McCain and Obama only widened, leaving the Republicans at a severe disadvantage. McCain’s numbers remained steady around 42 and 43 percent throughout October, but Obama’s continued climbing, and  by October 31, McCain’s standing had dropped to 40 percent and Obama’s had reached 53 percent – a devastating 13-percent gap.

Palin’s Texas Candidate Cruz Goes From 3% Into Run-Off As Remarkable Endorsement Success Continues

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on May 30, 2012

UPDATE:  FOX agrees with me and calls it a run-off For Cruz.


As the night goes on, things are getting rather interesting. With 99% in all
Dewhurst dropped below 45% to 44.59 and Cruz continues to edge up – now at 34.23%. That puts Cruz at10.36 points behind. That is important as he becomes viable for the non-Dewhurst supporters rather than a seeming wasted vote and will attract finance.

PPP had him trailing by 17 points in their final poll 46-29



From PPP (D) Polling, which did a Roper/Truman and stopped polling when Dewhurst was so far in front. The answer to their questions as to why the dramatic change is that Palin got involved. But being a Dem pollster,  that wouldn’t have occurred to them.

Dewhurst won early vote by 18 pts but only winning election day by about 6 pts so far…not sure that means anything for runoff or not


Subsequent to Sarah Palin’s endorsement of him, GOP candidate for Senator from Texas Ted Cruz has completed the astonishing journey from polling at only 3% to being in the final run-off. Cruz having kept the previously presumed winner Dewhurst below 50% in tonight’s primary battle.


Clearly this last minute Tweet by Palin to Texans, and her previous robocall, made a major contribution to Cruz’s success in getting into the run-off tonight:

Sarah Palin

Dear Texans, please remember to vote today for Ted Cruz for U.S. Senate!


The Cruz rise follows on from Palin’s remarkable success in assisting conservative candidates, who were outsiders and initially polling lowly, into becoming winners. Richard Mourdock in Indiana and Deb Fischer in Nebraska are the two latest, whom even Palin’s enemies have grudgingly admitted were assisted by her into the winners circle.

If Cruz is the last in the recent trifecta, then his win,or even his getting  into the run-off by denying Dewhurst a first round victory, will be perhaps the most remarkable of Palin’s picks, and her place as king maker will have to be accepted by the punditry.
 Of course, not all Palin’s picks will win.That would be impossible, as some choices will have so little prospect of winning even though they are of outstanding quality. However her winning percentage is remarkable as is the enthusiasm her endorsments bring.

Here is remarkable polling history for Cruz.

January 2011 Dewhurst 23% Cruz 3% (Dewhurst +20)
Post PALIN endorsement poll May 21st
Democrat Pollster PPP Polling (D)  on May 24th
Dewhurst 46%  Cruz 29%  (Dewhurst +17)
PPP also found this result:

“Even though Rick Perry’s candidate is likely to defeat Sarah Palin’s, her endorsement polls much more positively. 36% of voters say they’re more inclined to back a Palin supported candidate to 21% who consider it a negative. Perry’s stock with Texas Republicans has fallen so far his endorsement is actually a net minus with 24% saying it would make them more inclined to vote for his candidate to 28% who say less likely.”
