Palin: “Shovel Ready” Stimulus at Work

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on July 18, 2012

Earlier today, Governor Sarah Palin shared the following video from Project Veritas on her Facebook page.

Here’s Obama’s nearly trillion dollar “shovel ready” stimulus in action…

 

Additional information from VeritasVisuals:

Undercover reporters posing as “Earth Supply and Renewal” — group dedicated to digging holes and filling them back in, meet with Labor Bosses, NY Legislator, and former NY Assemblyman, who tell them how to secure funding for “Bullsh*t” Green jobs.

John Hutchings, member of the Broome County legislature, told the undercover reporters posing as “Earth Supply and Renewal” his opinion on taxpayer-funded grant contracts; “You know the Green Jobs — Green NY, between us, a lot of it is bullsh*t”. Anthony Tocci, business manager for Local 601, tells Earth Supply and Renewal “You just wanna(sic) get the money. Then you figure out afterwards” Former NY assemblyman Ron Tocci is also featured laughing about the irony of the company’s services: “One thing about it, it’s shovel ready.”

Is it any wonder that many Americans are skeptical about how our government is being run?

Hey Mitt! Where’s the Palin invite to the GOP convention?

Posted by Roderic Deane on July 18, 2012

Perhaps it’s too early to worry about this. After all, I don’t think any of the other GOP Presidential contenders have gotten invites to the GOP convention either…but, then again, Governor Palin should be an exception.

She was the GOP’s VP candidate in the last election, for crying out loud! She DESERVES a prime-time spot on the dais. Sure, the mainstream media and GOPe have tried to demonize her over the last 4 years, but she is still quite relevant, despite attempts to suggest otherwise. Her acceptance by the Tea Party is unquestioned and she still has the ability to galvanize the grassroots in ways that Romney can only dream of.

I keep hearing people say that we need to unify around our presumptive candidate. I say BULLSHIT! Romney needs to reach out to Governor Palin, have a face-to-face conversation, and offer her a prime spot during the Convention. In that conversation, Governor Palin needs to be given assurances that the Tea Party’s issues will be front and center in Romney’s campaign and governing agenda. If that doesn’t happen, I know an awful lot of people that are going to invest their time to help Congressional and Senate candidates this fall. Oh sure, they MIGHT hold their nose and vote for Romney, but they sure as heck aren’t going to campaign for him.

I know you agree with me and certain others do too.

Thankfully, Mitt Romney is starting to show some cajones in a recent speech in Pennsylvania, highlighted by Mark Levin. Me thinks he just might be angling to be put in good graces with us, the grassroots and, by extension, Governor Sarah Palin.

Indisputable Technical Analysis: “No, Sarah Palin Did Not Cost McCain the Presidency”

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on July 18, 2012

Not that it will the slightest difference to the Palin haters, especially those in the GOP and especially those who were in the McCain camp in 2008 . Especially those who subsequently tried to shift the responsibility for the loss from them to Palin. But here is, another, hugely detailed analysis of why McCain lost. And no, it was not because of Palin for the umteenth time. DUSTIN HAWKINS does a great job.

No, Sarah Palin Did Not Cost McCain the Presidency

By Dustin Hawkins
July 17, 2012

To the point of redundancy, every discussion of Romney’s eventual vice-presidential pick always leads to a snarky comment about “avoiding a Palin” or how Palin lost the election for John McCain. The argument is old and tired. But more importantly, the argument is false. To believe that Palin “cost” McCain anything you would have to ignore all poll data before and after Palin was selected, the enormous cash advantage of Obama, the historical obsession with Obama, the ad-war landslide in favor of Obama, McCain’s odd campaign suspension, and the fact that before Palin, McCain could barely fill a high school gymnasium. So, let’s examine reality and put the Palin-bashing to bed.

If you look at the 60 polls prior to Palin being selected as McCain’s running-mate taken from June 1st through August 29th this is what you would find:

John McCain and Obama tied in 2 polls
John McCain led Obama in 5 Polls
Barack Obama led John McCain in 53 polls.

Yes, for every one poll that showed a McCain lead, Obama held a lead in 10 polls. In that span, Obama’s lead in the polls was close to 6 points, fairly similar to the final outcome. I’m not sure how it was Palin’s fault that McCain was getting throttled before anyone knew who she was.

A week after the selection of Palin, the Republicans would hold their nominating convention and Palin delivered a speech for the ages. Her favorable numbers immediately soared. In fact, her favorable numbers at that point were greater than those of Barack Obama. A CNN Poll had Palin’s favorable ratings at +30 (Obama was +26), Newsweek had Palin at +30 (Obama at +20), and NBC News had Palin at +20 (Obama +21). The McCain-Palin ticket suddenly lead Obama-Biden in 7 polls, tied in 3, and trailed in just 2. Palin’s highlight-reel speech was a big factor, but a bit of those leads had a lot to do with the traditional “post-convention bounce,” too.

Many try to blame the campaign’s subsequent downfall on Palin’s interview with Katie Couric, but that doesn’t sit well with the facts either. After the convention bounce, and before the Palin-Couric interview, Obama led McCain in 8 straight polls by margins of 5, 6, 5, 1, 4, 2, 9, and 4 points.

So why did John McCain really lose?

First, the real turning point was when McCain ridiculously and bizarrely “suspended” his campaign on September 24, 2008 due to the financial crisis. He led in one of a dozen polls before the announcement (by 1 point), and would go on to trail in every one of the 100+ polls taken and included in the RCP average following that move.
