Gallup: Romney 43% Is At McCain’s Pre-Palin Level. Game Change VP Needed?

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


At Real Clear Politics, the Gallup tracking poll has Mitt Romney at 43% against President Obama and declining. Although in the Electoral College (the latest map from is illustrated below), Romney has never been ahead, he is currently a massive 114 EC votes behind, and he has previously been up to 5 points ahead of Obama in the tracking polls. 

To go from 55% to 43% in a matter of weeks is a poor indicator for the Romney campaign, with the usual caveats – “polls don’t count this far out, people are not paying attention, and etc.  Be that as it may, when the McCain team sank to 43%, they considered what they might do to fire up the base and lift their numbers. 

They certainly did not turn to a “boring white man,” and it beggars belief that if they had chosen Romney or Pawlenty,  McCain would have passed candidate Obama in the polls as he did after Palin was chosen. 

The history of the McCain campaign, including of course, Palin’s dramatic entry and McCain’s subsequent rise from doldrums to leader, is brilliantly set out AT THIS LINK.  Further, the polling history from Gallup in 2008, chronicling McCain at 43% then rising to being in the lead, and the reason for his loss is set out under the map below this post.

Does anyone believe that if Romney adds Portman or Pawlenty or Daniels or Thune to his ticket that he will get such a polling lift that he will pass President Obama either now or post convention?

It may be that the Romney team will go the “no drama” route and hope that either the economic situation does for Romney what it did for Obama or that the base will turn out,with eyes closed, having someone else help them to put their tick next to Mitt and vote for him because of  their “anyone but Obama” imperative.

Both of those situations may not happen. The economy might just dawdle along enough, the bully pulpit and the assistance of the leftist media might play their traditional roles, and libertarian Ron Johnson might take enough conservative protest votes to give Obama another term.

One thing is certain, though.  If Romney chose Palin (if she would accept the role of course) or a “Palin,” then he would get an immediate lift in support from most of the base. The enthusiasm for “Palin” would be palpable, as it was in 2008, and the negatives from 2008 would not come into play this time.

Everything the left could possibly dig up, make up, and vomit up against Palin has been dug, made, vomited. Every aspect of her and the life of every member of her family has been dissected and distorted. The public is no doubt tired of the imitators and the “I can see Alaska” shtick is tired and forlorn. No, this time around, the media would have to report on Palin’s  actual words not the caricature they make of her.

This time around Palin would be just as combative, possibly more so, and she would be media savy and not open, in her honestly and innocence, to the traps the MSM and the Journolist conspiracy set for her.

This time around, if there was a major economic downturn like the one that derailed the McCain campaign in 2008, it would be the Obama team which would feel the full brunt of the ire of the public and the spearhead thrusts of Palin.

Romney can play it safe and possibly suffer a worse defeat than McCain, or he can go for a game changer. History will show how his first “executive” decision turns out, but he has the option now to gain the base.

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 percent.  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 that point, 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.

Who’s In Charge? Palin’s Obamacare Ruling Tweet: 6,025 Retweets – Romney ‘s 4,529 Retweets

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on June 29, 2012

Just who is running the GOP’s campaign at the moment? Is it the putative candidate Mitt Romney, whose Massachusetts health care bill is an acknowledged precursor to Obama care? 

Or is it Sarah Palin that the rank and file look to for advice and taking the battle to the opposition with credibility?

Palin has been on Greta,The 5, and Hannnity since the ruling, and numerous comment sites/media outlets have analyzed her thoughts on the matter.  Romney’s – not so much.

Here’s what the Twitterverse thinks (via Michael at Cool Change and Exodus2011 at Conservatives4Palin):

Palin: “Nancy Pelosi is a Dingbat”

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on June 29, 2012

dingbat: a stupid or eccentric person

Sarah Palin appeared with Sean Hannity tonight for an extensive discussion covering the recent decision of the Supreme Court to uphold the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).  Palin did not hold back as is evidenced in the title of this blog post.

Governor Palin also expressed her disgust with the members of Congress that walked out on the Holder contempt vote citing a lack of respect for the Brian Terry family.

Palin Leaves Beckel Speechless on “Death Panels”

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on June 29, 2012

My favorite part: At about the 2:25 mark, Bob Beckel attempts to discredit her brilliant (and effective) death panel metaphor for Obamacare’s inevitable rationing.  She knocks it out of the park, leaving Beckel speechless.

Interview With Sarah Palin On SCOTUS Decision Plus Conservative Commentary

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on June 29, 2012

Sarah Palin is more qualified to be the conservative spokesperson on the SCOTUS decision, as she is unencumbered by the history that Mitt Romney has. 

Here is her interview with Greta on the vital subject, followed by a commentary from BrianusBerkleianus,  a commenter at Conservatives4Palin.

She calls the Supreme Court’s obamacare decision “treachery.”

Note that “treachery” signifies betrayal of one’s own side; it signifies treason. We expected the four Leftist Justices to side with obama, pelosi, and reid. Therefore, it is the supposed “conservative” John Roberts, principally, who is the treacherous one.

However, in the face of this treachery she urges OPTIMISM: The issue of healthcare is back in the hands of the People via their representatives.

She wants Congress to rescind the TAX in July.

“Absolutely it’s a tax; it’s nearly a trillion dollars’ worth … this is a penalty; it is a tax on the People; it’s a tax on States, it’s a raiding of Medicare funds …”

She repeats Milton Friedman’s (I think it is) “There is no such thing as a free lunch.”

The 50% who pay taxes will have even more taxes.

The other 50%, who think they are getting a free ride, will have less availability of healthcare; fewer choices; less efficient and more bureaucratic healthcare–it will be RATIONED.” (emphasis mine)–This last statement goes right to her famous “death panels” phrase. She did not explicitly wield the words this last evening, but she implies them here!!

“[It] truly defies economic and common sense to say that healthcare with more enrollees in the program will not have to be RATIONED.” (emphasis mine)

She speaks carefully about Romney.

Greta mentions him explicitly. In response to the host’s specific inquiry, The Governor replies, “If Governor Romney is elected President–and let’s hope the GOP does take over the White House, and can secure the Senate, and holds onto the House …” Note that she does NOT say “And let’s hope HE does take over the White House.” She says, “… and let’s hope the GOP does take over, etc.”

Anyway, if this happens, obamacare must be repealed.

Further, TORT-REFORM and anti-competitiveness problems must be resolved.

She calls on common-sense-conservative Democrats to join in this great effort!!

If obama is reelected, we will be a fundamentally transformed country, just as he promised. If obama is reelected, America will no longer recognize herself.

Obamacare is a HARBINGER of things to come.

She wants GOVERNORS to be tough, and to opt out of obamacare, and EXERT THE TENTH AMENDMENT!!!


“[He] does not understand the Constitution; he even being a Constitutional lecturer and SUPPOSED (emphasis mine) scholar in our Constitution, not understanding, probably never reading nor absorbing the Tenth Amendment to understand that STATES HAVE RIGHTS. WE ARE SOVEREIGN STATES.” (emphasis mine)

Sarah well understands that Obama obtained his places at Columbia and Harvard (or wherever it was) SOLELY BECAUSE HE WAS A USEFUL TOOL FOR THE RADICAL LEFT. A Clarence Thomas, for example, would never be welcome at such places!!

Two final observations:

SARAH is the one to carry the battle standard of the now revitalized and reinvigorated TEA Party in the autumn; the author of Romneycare is not the person for the task. NOBODY eviscerates Barack Hussein Obama, and understands the heart and mind and soul of America, the way SARAH PALIN OF ALASKA does.

Also, IMHO, I suspect John Roberts of playing a sneaky double game in support of BOTH WINGS OF THE GOVERNMENT PARTY that is opposed to Sarah’s nascent concept of a Party of Freedom.

Namely, Roberts saves Obamacare for the Left, but also cynically figures his decision will rouse up enough conservatives to “hold their noses” and vote in Romney in November. He thus helps the entire Establishment, Left and RINO.

Palin In Full Attack Mode Over Scotus: “Rescind The Tax”

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on June 28, 2012

Mitt Romney advises that “on day one of his presidency” he will remove Obamacare. In actuality, it is Palin, not Romney, who has credibility on the issue – even President Obama pointed to Romney’s Massachusetts health care law instituted by him as a precursor to his own law.

Nothing needs to be added to Palin’s statement below – “Congress has the power to rescind a tax” –  apart from the musing that perhaps there is still time to change candidates for the GOP nomination.

Sarah Palin: Thank you, SCOTUS.

From Sarah Palin’s Facebook post:

Thank you, SCOTUS. This Obamacare ruling fires up the troops as America’s eyes are opened! Thank God.

This proves to be such an unsettling time in America as we undergo the fundamental transformation that Barack Obama promised he would do to us if elected.

Obamacare was dealt in deception and confusion by flooding the public with an overwhelming amount of conflicting “rationale” via thousands of pages of unread legislative detail, which is the radical left’s M.O.

Obama promised the American people this wasn’t a tax and that he’d never raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000.

We now see that this is the largest tax increase in history. It will slam every business owner and every one of the 50% of Americans who currently pay their taxes.

The other 50% are being deceived if they think they’re going to get a free ride – because Medicaid is broke. Recipients of Obama’s “free health care” will have fewer choices and less accessibility. Trust me – this much more expensive health care WILL be rationed; to claim otherwise defies all economic and common sense.

We will not retreat on this. A newly elected legislative branch is key to defending our Republic and fundamentally restoring all that is good in America.

SCOTUS now rules this is a tax? Well, Congress has the ability to create taxes – and also has the ability to rescind them. Upon their return from the July recess, Congress should act immediately to repeal this terrible new tax on the American people, and indeed they must repeal all of Obamacare. This is the most brazen and sweeping new tax and government overreach imposed on us. We the People did not ask for this tax, we do not want this tax, and we can’t afford this tax. This is not an answer to America’s health care challenges.

It’s time, again, for patriotic Americans to rise up to protest this obvious infringement on our economic and personal freedom. November is just around the corner. Today, the Supreme Court issued their ruling on Obamacare. In November, We the People will issue ours.

Finally A Senator Responds (Video) To Palin’s Death Panels: “Repeal Entire Law”; Deny Bureaucrats Power

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on June 28, 2012

The key remarks from Senator Barrasso are towards the end of the video in direct response to the question (from an MSNBC commentator) about death panels where he pointedly remarks about “faceless bureaucrats’ in respect of cost management leading to denying proper care.

Governor Palin’s complete post on the subject follows below without the MSNBC filter.


The Hill has the comments detailed below from Senator Barrasso in respect of Sarah Palin’s renewed attack on the Obama administrations health care law including her terming an aspect of the law as ‘death panels’.

Palin was roundly criticised by the left, but it is generally agreed that her attack on the Obama admin’s proposals created a massive resistance to them and may have been one of the major contributing factors to the Tea party movement which led to the GOP takeover of the House in 2010.

Senator Barrasso is vehemently opposed to the law and his opinion carries extra weight as he is a medical professional as well as a lawmaker.

The whole The Hill article is AT THIS LINK.

Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said Wednesday that a portion of the controversial healthcare overhaul legislation that’s designed to control Medicare costs will result in the denial of care for patients.
“You shouldn’t put anyone between their doctor and their patient, not an insurance company bureaucrat, not a government bureaucrat,” Barrasso said on MSNBC’s “Jansing & Co.”
Barrasso was responding to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s newly revived
claim that President Obama’s signature healthcare law would create
“death panels.”

“Though I was called a liar for calling it like it is, many of these accusers finally saw that ObamaCare did in fact create a panel of faceless bureaucrats who have the power to make life and death decisions about health care funding,” she wrote on her Facebook page Monday.

When asked whether Palin’s accusations were true, Barrasso said “I want to eliminate the entire law, have the entire law repealed.”


Governor Palin: “Death Panel” Three Years Later

Via Facebook::
As we wait for the impending Supreme Court decision on Obamacare, I reiterate what I wrote in myfirst post onthis topic nearly three years ago. I stand by everything I wrote inthat warning to my fellow Americans, because what was true then is true now, and it will remain true as we hear what the Supreme Courthas to say.Itwas a pretty long post, but a lot of people seem to have only read two words of it: “death panel.” Though I was called a liar for calling it like it is, many of these accusers finally saw that Obamacare did in fact create a panel of faceless bureaucrats who have the power to make life and death decisions about health care funding.
It’s called the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), and its purpose all along has been to “keep costs down” by actually denying care via price controls and typically inefficient bureaucracy. This subjective rationing of care is what I was writing about in that first post:

The Democrats promise that a government health care system will reduce the cost of health care, but as the economist Thomas Sowell haspointed out, government health care will not reduce the cost; it will simply refuse to pay the cost. And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s “death panel” so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their “level of productivity in society,” whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil. Healthcare by definition involves life and death decisions. Human rights and human dignity must be at the center of any health care discussion.

Rep.Michele Bachmann highlighted the Orwellian thinking of the president’s health care advisor, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the brother of the White House chief of staff, in a floor speech to the House of  Representatives. I commend her for being a voice for the most precious members of our society, our children and our seniors. We must step up and engage in this most crucial debate. Nationalizing our health care system is a point of no return for government interference in the lives of its citizens. If we go down this path, there will be no turning back. Ronald Reagan once wrote, “Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth.” Let’s stop and think and make our voices heard before it’s too late.

If the Supreme Court doesn’t strike down Obamacare entirely, then Congress must act to repeal IPAB and Obamacare before it is indeed “too late.” All of Obamacare must go one way or another.

Palin Cuties – Trig and Tripp

Posted by Dr. Fay on June 27, 2012

Here are two recent photos that Bristol Palin posted on her blog here and here.



This adorable photo was taken of Trig at Vacation Bible School in Alaska recently.  He seems to be looking intently at some VBS materials.  Notice the fashionable eyeglasses – quite becoming for one this age.



Here is a photo of Tripp pretending to lift a heavy set of weights.   This adorable toddler has a spunky personality, as you may have seen in the ‘Life’s A Tripp’ episode last night when Bristol and Willow egged him on to “show his muscles”  to the paparazzi who were taking pictures of them.
