Dick Cheney Confuses Governor Palin with President Obama

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 29, 2012

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

My Conservatives4Palin colleague, Steve Flesher, addressed Dick Cheney’s ridiculous comments about the selection of Governor Palin as Senator McCain’s running mate. First, let me say I find it very disheartening that the GOP establishment continues to attack the one person who has taken more slings and arrows than anyone else as she tries to save this country from what President Obama has done to it. She has done nothing but put herself on the line time and time again–withstanding the lies, the sexism, the intrusions into her privacy, the attacks on her children, the death threats, the skewing of her record, the questioning of her intelligence, the misrepresentations, and the list goes on.

Nonetheless, Governor Palin fights. She fights because she loves this country, and she knows it’ll take a fight to restore this country. Like so many others, Dick Cheney responds with the typical bull and the same old faulty talking points. Perhaps he should save his criticism for President Obama and show the former Vice Presidential candidate a little respect.

Here’s what Cheney said:

I don’t think she passed that test … of being ready to take over. And I think that was a mistake.

Flesher handled this well over at C4P:

The news of Cheney’s interview airing on ABC tomorrow morning (Monday) on GMA is making its Sunday-rounds. The MSM couldn’t be happier.

While the entire interview has yet to be released, it appears Mr. Cheney has decided to do his part for his establishment-buddies by attacking his own party’s last VP nominee in lieu of going after the nation’s biggest elected mistake of all time – Barack Obama.

[…]

Apparently, Palin’s not “ready” to sit in an administration for eight years which adds 5 trillion dollars to our unpaid debt basically demoralizing the spirit of conservatism leading to four years of Barack Obama. Cheney was “ready” for that, wasn’t he?

Palin’s not “ready” to engage in cronyism which dictates who she’d appoint to lifetime positions on the Supreme Court or to head federal emergency agencies like FEMA. Bush & Cheney were “ready” for that, weren’t they?

Palin is “ready” to balance a budget – since she did it in Alaska.

Palin is “ready” to increase benefits for our esteemed elders while cutting out wasteful spending existing all across our federal government – since she did similar things in Alaska.

Palin is “ready” to call out entrenched special interests like she did when she served up a little justice to the Republican Party’s good old boys and their dealings with big oil. She did that in Alaska, too.

Palin’s “ready” to unabashedly call out Barack Obama. This includes pointing out his past associations, his reckless squandering of billions of our dollars to pay back his Wall Street friends (just as Bush/Cheney once did), and his plans to whip Americans into Greece-like big-government submission. This is in contrast to the establishment’s plans to hold back.

Palin’s “ready” to endorse countless candidates for the Congress. She’s been successful at using her enormous grassroots influence to pull a great deal of them across the finish line.

Palin’s not ready to fall in line with the establishment. Until any candidate (including our perceived “front-runner”) demonstrates a full willingness to truly unify with the party’s grassroots, don’t count on her to make deals behind closed doors or hold high-priced fundraisers at her home.

Considering everything Bush & Company were “ready” for, it’s no wonder why Barack Obama was ever put in the position of becoming President of our great Republic. Now of course, he must be fired.

Read Steve Flesher’s full article here.

Doug Brady added an update to Steve’s piece, a tweet by Cheney’s daughter, Liz, in disagreement with the position her father has taken:

The article also quotes others who have the common sense to note that Governor Palin was more than qualified to be elected and certainly more qualified than the person who was elected as President. And lest we forget, she had more administrative experience than everyone on both tickets.

So let’s move on–with the facts–and remember that President Obama is the opponent, not Governor Palin. It is he who was “not ready to take over,” but we elected him nonetheless. That was the mistake. And we’re paying the price.

Bristol Palin: “God is in control of … even our foxtrots”

Posted by Dr. Fay on July 29, 2012

Bristol Palin announced on her blog on Friday that she had been invited to be one of the All Stars cast for Season 15 of Dancing With the Stars.

You know when something fun happens in life how you want to tell your friends first?  Well, that’s how I feel about this.  I wanted to tell the readers of my blog some amazing news. I appreciate you sticking with me through all of life’s adventures, and there’s another adventure headed my way.

I’ve been invited to be in Dancing with the Stars All Stars!!!

[…]

I asked for some sort of direction as to what to do, which direction to go…

After all, it’s complicated.  Should I focus on work? A relationship? Even after that terrible fight, I wasn’t sure about where Gino and I stood.

In other words, I prayed and asked for guidance.

After Lifetime wrapped up filming for the day, they took the microphones off Willow and me. It wasn’t ten minutes later that my cell phone rang.

It was the casting director of Dancing with the Stars.

I was ecstatic. It was like God placed this opportunity right at my feet. I called my mom right after our conversation and told her the offer I had gotten. I was totally brought to tears just thinking about the last few years of my life, and how abundantly blessed I am to have such amazing opportunities.  I’m thankful for my book, for this blog, for my Lifetime show, and now this. And, I’m thankful for you guys.

What I’m learning: God’s plan is much greater than our own.

Does that mean I’ll win DWTS?  Not necessarily. I’ll give it my all, and see what happens.

But this is what I do know. I’m trying to live every day a little more confidently, because I know that God is in control of our lives, our futures, and even our foxtrots.

ABC announced the cast with a photogallery, which included this blurb about Bristol:

As a Dancing star she may have seemed like an underdog, but she kept coming back week after week. We can’t wait to see what Bristol the Pistol has in store for us as an All-Star.

Bristol Palin, 21 years old, was born and raised in Wasilla, Alaska. Bristol is the second child and oldest daughter of former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin and her husband, Todd. Bristol and Levi Johnston’s son, Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston, was born in 2008.

Bristol is an author, speaker, and reality television personality. After she became a single mother at age 18, Bristol began to publicly advocate teenage pregnancy prevention, and is now a paid speaker on the subject of teen pregnancy. In May 2009, at age 18, Bristol worked with The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy to inform young people about the negative consequences of teenage pregnancy.

In May 2009, Bristol was named a Teen Pregnancy Prevention Ambassador for the Candie’s Foundation, a teen pregnancy prevention organization that is a division of the Candie’s clothing brand. Her duties as a paid spokeswoman involved attending town hall meetings, public service announcements, and giving interviews on morning talk shows.

Bristol competed in the fall 2010 season of Dancing with the Stars and reached the finals, finishing in third place. In June 2011, Bristol and Nancy French released her memoir, Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far, in which Bristol candidly discusses aspects of her personal life, including tensions with the McCain family and losing her virginity. The book was a New York Times bestseller.

Currently, Bristol is starring in the docu-series Life’s a Tripp. The series follows Bristol as she adjusts back to normal routine in Alaska.

Here is a group photo of the cast, minus the 13th member of the cast, who will be voted on by viewers.

From an article by Gary Levin at USA Today as posted at the Tucson Citizen:

GALLERY: Who’s coming back for the All-Star Season?

The list includes Pamela Anderson, Kelly Monaco, Emmitt Smith, Melissa Rycroft, Joey Fatone, Helio Castroneves, Drew Lachey, Bristol Palin, Kirstie Alley, Apolo Anton Ohno,Shawn Johnson and Gilles Marini.

And for the first time, viewers will vote for a 13th cast member, either Kyle Massey, Carson Kressley or Sabrina Bryan, who are being encouraged to campaign to win votes. (Viewers have four weeks to choose on abc.com).

The new season begins Sept. 24.

Producer Conrad Green says the stars “represent many different seasons,” and allows the show to “get back some of the best personalities” from its run. “”We want the whole season to be a celebration of the people who have taken part.”

The stars won’t all have their original dancing partners (the pairings will be announced Aug. 13). But “the level of competition is going to be quite intense,” Green says. “And we’ll probably have to recalibrate the judging because otherwise it will be all 9s and 10s right out of the box.”

Some of the stars appeared before TV critics: Palin reasons that “the press is going to talk about me no matter what, so I might as well have fun.” (She also has a Lifetime reality series, and her dad Todd is on NBC’s new Stars Earn Stripes series.) What are they not looking forward to? “Not getting a lot of surgery after the competition,” Marini says. And not getting eliminated, adds Lachey.

Sarah Palin has put a lot on the line in backing Ted Cruz in the Texas primary as Cruz was almost unknown and started at 3%. She went to Texas and campaigned for him which is something she has not done for any candidate for a long time.

Here is PPP’s latest results.For the history of Cruz’s astonishing rise see THIS LINK

Palin Hits 53% Poll Approval Rating Bests Obama/Romney;Media Still Quoting Year Old Polls

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

Sarah Palin - Popularity Map




The Palin hit site Hot Air is happy to get thousands of page views by using Palin’s name in their negative articles about her. They are also happy to use sloppy journalism in this pursuit by quoting polls showing Palin at a very low approval rating dating back to October 2011.


Al Sharpton did so on MSNBC but that is understandable, Doug Schoen on Fox said “her negatives are about 60% without any poll reference.
 
The PPP and Election Meter.Com results, not suiting their purpose, are
neglected.

 

On the heels of major polling firm PPP Polling finding that Sarah Palin is more popular, by far, than any of the declared GOP candidates in the recent primary campaign, with a 68% approval rating 

AT THIS LINK and a net positive rating of +48, now a poll (Graphs at bottom of this page) at Election Meter.com 

 has her approval also at a significant level. 


The new 5,000+ vote EM Poll AT THIS LINK gives Palin a 53.0% approval rating. This is her fourth rating above 50% in this poll since early 2009 and shows the long struggle against media distortion she has had to undertake, so the slow and steady rise continues.



Undertake the long struggle she has done indeed, and her tenacity seems to finally be paying, off as voters now are seeing her in a substantially positive light again.


It seems no coincidence that Palin has moved into such positive territory in three polls following the leftist hatchet job, (and box office flop) “Game Change”. 


The attacks from that disaster seem to have been the last straw with the public. This especially so amongst Republicans, who can now clearly see that so much of the media generated negativity around Palin over the last four years has been a massive wall of hate and bias and unrelated to the positive characteristics of the real Palin.


Further recent factors in Palin’s rise in popularity (Romney polled at a near disastrous 41% in the latest Fox News poll July 17th) ) could be:


Her six in a row winning endorsements for high profile campaigns e.g. Mourdoch and Fischer’s come from behind Senate primary wins, and Ted Cruz’s remarkable rise in Texas-all with Palin’s support. The perceived unfairness to Palin by the Romney team in hiring someone who has spoken negatively about to run his campaign, and of course their stonewalling Palin being invited to Tampa


Yes certainly, the Election Meter poll is an on line poll and can be discounted to a degree because of that. However, when Palin was at her absolute nadir in this poll in 2010 at 19.2% her enemies would have seized on it as being representative of a general feeling. 


There is some degree of validity to that view, although it is distorted and extreme, but on the other hand the steady, seemingly inexorable rise since then must also reflect a wider reality-which will of course be ignored by her enemies.


Here are the longer term graphs which, because of the time frame involved, must be valid in the wider context they support. Surely the absolute polling height of 72% in 2008 was a genuine reflection of reality at that time.
That
the leftist media negativity bore little resemblance to reality has
also been shown, firstly in the utter blind hatred they attack her
with AT
THIS LINK
 and
of course, on the other hand the huge power Palin has recently shown
in having her endorsed candidates do so well against all the odds.
