Sarah Palin: Romney has to get through the filter of the lapdog media

Governor Palin discussed the latest Romney/Obama poll numbers and  the November election with Hannity last night.   In response to Hannity’s remark that Romney was looking pretty good in the latest polls, she responded:

Well, he is. And the more time that Mitt Romney has to get his message out, the better it is for him. When voters start understanding that middle class families have seen the decimation of their net worth to the tune of 40 percent under Barack Obama and monumental fiscal failures are really the hallmark of this administration, the more time that Mitt Romney has to get those facts out there, the more you will see the polls change.

Noting the larger percentage of Democrats participating in the poll, Hannity asked Governor Palin if she thought the media was purposefully manipulating the poll.  Governor Palin responded:

No question. Absolutely. And that’s par for the course, though, with the — manipulation of the media’s message. And you know, they — like they did four years ago, Sean, they chose their One and they did all that they could to usher him into the White House. We are going to see the same tactics this is go around. And I think voters, though, are wiser, perhaps, this go-around in understanding that the media does manipulate information.

The filter that the media is, is something that a politician, a candidate has to be extremely astute in — kind of decimating that filter and getting through it, so that the public has the correct information.

Hannity said that it seemed that Obama was going to use 3 forms of attack:  a smear campaign, class warfare, and taxes.  He asked Governor Palin if she thought Obama could win the election using class warfare.  She responded:

Well, the more people that he has feeding out of his hands, the better it is for him, of course. And when you consider that 49,  50 percent of Americans are not paying taxes and they are so reliant upon the government for their income and for benefits, that bodes well for the extreme left who wants to grow government and take away people’s freedoms and entrepreneurial spirit and work ethic. That’s what this is all about.

So, the more people who are reliant on Barack Obama and the Democrats, the better it is for them. But no — as President Clinton — shoot, as Barack Obama had even said just a couple of years ago, a few years ago, that increasing taxes at a time of economic woe is the worst thing that you can do. And yet, he’s flip-flopped on that along with so many other issues and now decides that he will increase taxes, allowing the Bush tax extensions to expire. And that’s going to really negatively affect our small businesses, which of course, is the economic backbone of this country.

When asked whether Romney should respond to the smear attacks on his offshore bank accounts, Governor Palin responded:

 You know I think that Governor Romney should vigorously defend his record and the fiscal decisions that he has made as a private citizen and with his private company. But we need to remember and Romney needs to remind the public and the media that his private bank accounts are not the problem — that is not what is causing the economic demise of this country. It is what Barack Obama believes and then makes manifest in our economy with the  monumental failures that kind of replicate the socialist nations that he seems to want to emulate.

Hannity played videoclips of Obama calling the Republican budget a Trojan horse and social Darwinism and  saying that Republicans want dirtier air and water.   Hannity said the remarks wreaked of desperation.  Governor Palin responded:

Well, it does. Consider the source, though, Sean. I mean, read Barack Obama’s autobiographies that he wrote before he accomplished anything, the two books. He made up things in his books and the media, by the way, didn’t vet him and let him get away with it. Composite girlfriends and composite experiences that shaped him. So, you know, it should be no surprise, no wonder that he makes things up today and the lap dogs in the media, they go along with him.

But, you know, as for that accusation of Romney not being transparent enough with his private funds and where he invests his dollars, here is – Debbie Wasserman Schultz is accusing him of not revealing more of his tax records when she’s  never revealed her tax records!

[…]

So, you know, if this isn’t the kettle calling the pot black, or the pot calling the kettle black, then I don’t know what is. And really, if it weren’t so insanely hypocritical, all of this would be laughable.

Hannity asked how the President could make the case that he has made the economy better.

He can make the case just by  making things up, Sean.  But the numbers speak for themselves. And though as they say, the American middle class has seen the decimation of their net worth by 40 per cent.  And you know, I’m glad his campaign and the Beltway pundits have made this election about taxes.  That’s an easy one for fiscal conservatives who understand that “we’re taxed enough already” and that growing government is not the answer to anything.  In fact, growing government is the problem.  Barack Obama is the leader of what the problem is all about, and that is growing government

Asked what her best message for Romney was, Governor Palin said:

He’s already got the right message and that is that the free market works best and the  Constitution is the fine blueprint to get us toward a more perfect Union as opposed to Barack Obama’s idea of growing government and  taking away our freedoms and quashing that entrepreneurial spirit that built America.

So Romney already has the right message.  It’s just a matter now of Governor Romney being very, very courageous and bold and passionate about that message.  Again, he’s got to get through that filter of the media, which is going to be quite difficult, because 90 per cent of the media is so far left that they are serving as a lap dog for Barack Obama.

So Romney – he has said before that he doesn’t want to have to light his hair on fire.  Well, there are a lot of  his  base supporters,  Independents, who are saying, “Well, light our hair on fire, then!  Remind us how important it is that we get engaged in this Presidential election, because it is the election of our lifetime. (emphasis mine)

And we saw in the 2010 electoral victory, and we saw in the Wisconsin recall victory where the right was victorious there, that the base, the Independents, the Tea Party patriots need to be energized and get out to vote.  Otherwise, the right is not going to be able to get in there into the White House and reverse the course that Barack Obama has put us on towards bankruptcy and insolvency.
