Palin endorsee Ted Yoho is a “conservative Christian Republican with a libertarian slant”

Eric Ciunta  at Sunshine State News had an exclusive interview with the latest Palin endorsee, Ted Yoho,  after his win in the Sunshine State.

North Central Florida’s new Republican congressional nominee is a self-styled “conservative Christian Republican with a libertarian slant” who plans to take a hatchet to thousands of pages of federal regulations, beginning with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

He’s avowedly antagonistic to the foreign policy orientation of the last several presidential administrations, including his own party’s “neoconservative wing,” wants to return America’s troops home from abroad, and is a staunch civil libertarian who calls for the repeal of the Patriot Act and the latest incarnation of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

In what is being hailed in many quarters as the biggest upset of Florida’s primary election season, and quite possibly one of the greatest congressional upsets in state history, large-animal veterinarian and political newcomer Ted Yoho scored a very narrow victory over 12-term congressman Cliff Stearns, R-Ocala, in one of Tuesday’s most hotly contested races.

Yoho’s certainly done his homework. “[I’ve] read the Constitution over and over again. I’ve taken study courses on it through Hillsdale [College]. I’ve read the Federalist Papers. I’ve read [Michael Holler’s] ‘The Constitution Made Easy’. I’ve studied this document,” he insists.

Yesterday, Ciunta reported on Governor Palin’s endorsement of Yoho:

Republican nominee Ted Yoho, of Florida’s 3rd Congressional District, will announce later today a major endorsement from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. Sunshine State News has obtained an advance copy of a press release soon to be issued from Yoho’s campaign.

Large-animal veterinarian Yoho made headlines last Tuesday after beating 24-year incumbent Cliff Stearns in a primary race many observers are calling one of the worst congressional upsets in state history.

In an exclusive interview with Sunshine State News Thursday, Yoho detailed his strict constitutional philosophy, fielded questions which had been submitted by readers, and candidly set forth why he set out to run against conservative stalwart Stearns.

The full text of Palin’s endorsement:

“Dr. Ted Yoho isn’t afraid of hard work. To put himself through college and veterinary school he worked nights in a vegetable packing house and summers in construction. After graduating, he started and grew his own successful business. Yes, President Obama, Ted built that himself.

“Tired of watching career politicians spend us into debt and tax us to death, Ted decided to run for Congress in Florida’s new 3rd Congressional District. No stranger to hard work, Ted took his conservative businessman’s perspective from town to town, county to county and voter to voter, asking them all the same thing: ‘Had enough?’ The answer was clear. Ted’s victory in last Tuesday’s primary sent the same message we are seeing all across the country: Yes, we have had enough. We’ve had enough of our elected officials going to Washington and forgetting about us. We’ve had enough of them mortgaging our children’s future to foreign debtors. We’ve had enough of Congress wasting our money on useless programs that enrich themselves or reward their cronies. We’ve had enough of high taxes. We’ve had enough of Obamacare’s threat of faceless government bureaucrats making life and death health care decisions for us. We’ve had enough of no job growth and government red tape that stifles our entrepreneurial spirit and any hope of long-term prosperity.

“Underdog candidates like Ted aren’t running because it’s easy, and they don’t plan on going to Washington to just ‘go along to get along.’ No, these underdogs are running to fight for sudden and relentless reform and they know the hard work it will require to make it happen. If you’ve had enough and are ready for some real reform that puts government back on our side, please join me in supporting Dr. Ted Yoho for Congress in FL-3. Let’s send this common-sense businessman to D.C. to fight for us. He won’t forget who sent him there.”

Yoho’s response to the endorsement:

“I’m honored that a strong conservative leader like Sarah Palin is backing my campaign and I cannot thank her enough for her endorsement. I admire Governor Palin for her relentless passion to challenge the status quo and to advance the conservative cause. I’m looking forward to working with Governor Palin and other conservatives as we look to take our country back, starting by repealing Obamacare. With support from conservatives we can begin to build coalitions of like-minded people who will work to return our country to the founding principles, core values and the Constitution. Common sense, a strong work ethic and a business mentality are what we need to accomplish these goals.”

Bernie Quigley:”Palin Will Lead 2016 Primary Battle And Should Have Been Keynote Speaker”

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on August 22, 2012



Writing at the respected site The Hill, commentator Bernie Quigley analyses the current state of the GOP and doesn’t appreciate what he see-but sees great hope for its future. A future led by Sarah Palin.


Quigley absolutely blasts both Chris Christie, who he seems as the spearhead not for the GOP’s current election campaign, but as the “carny barker” for the East Coast establishment and who should not have been chosen as the Tampa keynote speaker-that honor shoudl have gone to Palin he suggests strongly.


Quigley sees the real battle as not between the Dems and GOP, but internally for the Republicans, with the tide of history going out for the Beltway bosses and coming in for the conservative element with Palin as a sort of charioted Boadicea, or a female Neptune armed with the trident of conservative economic values.
Quigley states what I have made the purpose of this site, that Palin  will be leading the 2016 primary pack if Romney loses, and if Romney wins, who Quigley sees as reverting to type, she will lead the challenge against him in 2016.


Here’s the key quote:

If Obama wins this year, Palin will lead (against Christie/Bush) in the Republican primary in 2016. If Romney wins and yields to the tradition (which he will because his life is stuck in 1972) Palin will bring a challenge.

Sarah Palin: Akin needs to “know when to fold ’em”

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 22, 2012

Video retrieved from 

Governor Palin talked to Greta van Susteren about the Akin “legitimate rape” controversy On The Record last night.   She suggested a third party run for Sarah Steelman if Akin does not withdraw from the race.   From the transcript posted at Greta’s site:

GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: Well, the 5:00 PM deadline has now passed. The drumbeat, though, is loud. It’s getting louder. But it sure isn’t getting to Congressman Todd Akin in Missouri. He blew off the 5:00 PM Central deadline to drop out of the Senate race. Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan jumping into the fray, urging him to quit.

Congressman Akin is trying to unseat Democratic senator Claire McCaskill. Now, it all started during an interview, when the conversation turned to abortion. Congressman Akin said, If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.

Well, then all hell broke loose, and the highest-ranking party members have been urging him to quit the race. So now that Congressman Todd Akin missed a deadline and won’t bow out, should the GOP kiss its chance of winning the Missouri Senate seat goodbye?

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin backed Akin’s Republican primary opponent, Sarah Steelman. Governor Palin joins us. Good evening, Governor. And I think it’s only fair to take a few seconds and to gloat a little bit. You chose the candidate that the Republican Party didn’t — you know, didn’t vote in in Missouri, and now all the leaders in the country, Republican leaders, are trying to get Akin to go. So I think they probably love your choice.

SARAH PALIN, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR/FORMER ALASKA GOVERNOR: Well, I won’t gloat about it, but I was right. And Sarah Steelman’s supporters and campaign staff, we were all right in knowing that Sarah Steelman is the right person for the job to represent Missouri and to allow common-sense conservatives to take back the Senate to halt what it is that Barack Obama has done to this country.

Sarah Steelman was the right person. I supported her then, and I’m going to continue to support her.

VAN SUSTEREN: Well, it looks like Senator Claire McCaskill ought to be sending a fruit basket tonight to Congressman Akin because he certainly has — I mean, he has certainly jeopardized the chances for Republicans to take that seat. And Senator Claire McCaskill really was on the ropes. But now, boy, things have turned around, haven’t they?

PALIN: Well, see, that’s the point, Greta. Claire McCaskill and the Democrats thought that they were so clever in fighting so hard to get Akin on the ballot as the winner in the GOP primary. And you know, many of us who recognized that cleverness, that craftiness from the left, because we’re kind of getting used to the games that they play, wanted to do something about it.

And Sarah Steelman and her motto and her campaign being “The status quo has got to go” was absolutely right on in saying, you know, we need somebody who has a strong record of reform, of fighting crony capitalism, of fighting the good old boy network, of fighting ignorance in the Senate. And Sarah Steelman was going to be that person.

Now we do have opportunity, even though Todd Akin has said that he’s not going to drop out. And bless his heart, I don’t want to pile on Todd Akin because, in some respects, I understand what he’s trying to say here in standing on principle, that he doesn’t want to be perceived as a quitter. But you got to know when to hold ’em and know when to fold ’em.

Believe me, I’ve walked it before. I know when you have to hold that mantle and then hand it to someone else in order to progress a positive agenda. That’s what I had to do in Alaska.

In order to take back the Senate and promote the ideas and policies of respecting and protecting the sanctity of human life and respecting the idea and policies that would perpetuate a strong economy based on empowering hard-working individuals, instead of growing dysfunctional, indebted government, we’ve got to take back the Senate, and Missouri is a must-win state.

The way we do that is to have someone like Sarah Steelman be able to run, even if it’s as a third party candidate, to be able to run and help us take this back.

[…]

PALIN: You know, close that chapter, though, of what he said and what he meant and how he will try to explain what he meant. Close that, and now just deal with the pragmatism in front of us, these decision that have to be made on when the deck is stacked against you, when your funding has been pulled, when all the bigwigs, not just in the establishment but those hard- core supporters, have pulled their support from you as the GOP primary winner, in Todd Akin. When that support is gone, that would be needed in order to beat Claire McCaskill, help take back the Senate, when it’s gone. That’s when you have to use discernment and know when to fold them.

VAN SUSTEREN: So I’m unclear. Are you suggesting he get out or are you suggesting the Republican party still back him?

PALIN: No. I’m suggesting that he get out. He should have reached that deadline today, I believe, personally, and gotten out of the race, but because he did not do that, Greta, then we have to figure out, OK, well, what is next? Again, without trying to pile on Todd Akin and what he’s going through right now, maybe it is a third-party run of Sarah Steelman (ph) that I can get behind, and, granted the status quo has got to go would be an odd name for a third party, but we’ll coin it, adopt it, run with it if that’s what it takes in order to get a commonsense constitutional, happens to be pro-life woman in Missouri to clean up this mess that’s been created and at the same time take back the Senate, which means we get to take back the country and put government back on the side of the people.

VAN SUSTEREN: You know, it’s interesting, I don’t think they’re piling on him. You know, it’s not like it’s a gaffe, like he said the wrong word or something. I mean, he says it like he understands from doctors. Did he make it up? No doctor is coming out and saying this. This is more than a gaffe.

And what he’s done to the Republican party is not only is he going to risk the chance of the Republican party gaining the Senate by winning Missouri, but he’s also done one of the worst things you can do in politics, is by handing your opponent ammunition and as the Democrats have been talking about a war on women. Well, now he’s handed them so much ammunition on this by his bizarre statements.

PALIN: That’s what I mean, by the cards stacked against you. Good, bad, or ugly, that’s what he’s facing. This is not going in his favor. You have to step aside from self, from your self-desire to get in there and deserve and do what you believe is right, and you have to, in a sense, take one for the team. And you have to step aside, hand the mantle to someone else.

[…]

PALIN: He has until September 25th to do it. If he doesn’t do it, then it will be third party then. We’ll do whatever we can to not quash this opportunity that we have to take Missouri for the good of the country and for the good of every citizen of Missouri, to take it back, put government back on the side of the people. The only way we do that is to have a conservative win in Missouri, to defeat Claire McCaskill, who is highly unpopular. Look at the polls. She’s still behind Todd Akin today, barely, but even despite all this chaos that’s going on, that’s indication of how unpopular she is.

It’s doable. It’s winnable, Missouri is. And that leads to winning the Senate. That leads to reversing a lot of the things that Obama and Biden have done to put our children and grandchildren in the chains of dependency, to shackle our kids and grandkids in the debt that they have continued to perpetuate, Greta.

VAN SUSTEREN: Have you made a call to Sarah Steelman, or do you spend to, or do you have any advice for her tonight?

PALIN: No, because here’s the deal. I also know my mission that I’m on is to help and not to hurt. Maybe Todd Akin needs to learn a little lesson from me. You need to know when to step back and wait to be invited to be important and not invite yourself to the party. What he’s doing right now, Greta, bless his heart, he’s inviting himself back into this general election that’s coming up, and he’s going to get defeated. And that’s unfortunate. That is why we have to think pragmatically about this, and we have to think, well, what’s another option? Is a third-party another option? If it is, let’s go. The status quo has got to go. Let’s do what we can to get there.
