Palin infiltrates NBC’s Today Show

Posted by loricalabrese on April 3, 2012

Monday, NBC touted that we’d see another side of Sarah Palin when she co-hosted the Today show Tuesday morning and many tuned in to see if that was true.

Immediately, Palin used self-deprecating humor to kick-off the show as she perused through  a stack of newspapers, hinting that she was ‘doing her homework,’ a reference to her interview with Katie Couric and a response to a jab by Matt Lauer in a telephone interview on Monday.

Only in the 7 a.m. hour did Palin dive into politics as Lauer interviewed her about the 2012 race and the crop of Republican candidates. The interview made apparent the clear divide between Lauer and Palin as he attempted to throw Palin off her game. However, Palin stood her ground and discussed the necessary experience of a vice president, a brokered convention, and the current crop of candidates. Palin refused to give any endorsements, but said, “Anybody but Obama.” Lauer persisted, stressing that conditions have improved under Obama, but Palin quickly replied, “They aren’t getting better fast enough.”

As the 8 a.m. hour hit, things got a little less tense as viewers were exposed to the non-political side of Sarah Palin.

“I’m very excited to be here with all you New Yorkers and all you tourists,” Palin said to the crowd outside Rockefeller Center as she stood alongside Lauer, Ann Curry and Al Roker. She participated in a party-planning segment with Tori Spelling, and even threw to Al Roker later for the weather.

Palin also participated in the “Today’s Professionals” segment alongside Star Jones, Donny Deutsch and Dr. Nancy Snyderman. They tackled the issue of Ashton Kutcher playing Steve Jobs in an upcoming movie and Palin jokingly asked, “Do any of you here have experience with people being paid a lot of money to pretend like they’re you?,” hinting at the movie Game Changewhere Palin was portrayed by actress Julianne Moore.“I didn’t see the movie,” the former Alaska governor said giving a thumbs down, “and I wouldn’t waste my time seeing the movie.”

Overall, Palin did an amazing job, but did she reveal a side we’re unfamiliar with? Most Palin supporters would answer no as they’ve seen the former Governor just as poised, confident and strong in similar situations. But perhaps the different side of Palin we did see was a side that wasn’t running for election or taking on Obama, but instead a side that could fare well for a future hosting job in television– if it’s something on Palin’s radar.

Matt Lauer fuels the Palin versus Couric morning ratings war

Posted by loricalabrese on April 2, 2012

And let the awkwardness begin.

The big news is that Sarah Palin will co-host NBC’s Today Show Tuesday and NBC is taking every opportunity to promote the event in an attempt to retain their #1 ratings status versus Good Morning America, co-hosted by Katie Couric this week.

Palin called into the show on Monday to talk about her upcoming appearance and although the hosts and Palin exchanged some pleasantries, Matt Lauer couldn’t help but fuel the fire in the Palin versus Couric morning show war when he asked what Palin was doing to prepare.

“Are you reading some newspapers?” Lauer asked.

“Great,” a good-natured Palin said. “That’s a fine how do you do? That’s a great start. Here we go.”

Sure the conversation was portrayed as all-in-fun, but it will be interesting to see how Palin interacts with the same media outlet that has a hateful obsession with her.

Palin took the high road and said she appreciated “NBC’s boldness for having [her] on.” She added, “Doesn’t it kinda reflect so much the diversity of opinion that I hear that you all espouse, so I appreciate it.”

It was announced that Palin will not only guest host the 8:00 a.m. hour, but also participate on the “Today’s Professionals” segment along with Dr. Nancy Snyderman, Star Jones and ad man Donny Deutsch. So can we also expect her to weigh in on the current political environment?

“Oh, my goodness. there’s so much to weigh in on and hopefully, you know, we won’t bore viewers with too much in-depth political talk,” Palin stated. “But there are so many issues going on with energy prices, and you know, some national security issues that have to be addressed. I think no matter what it is that we discuss, somehow it’s going to kind of turn into a bit of a political discussion because it’s just absolutely paramount right now that people are paying attention to what’s going on in our country in order to make good decisions to get it back on the right track, guys.”

NBC’s Today Show turns to Palin to revive ratings

Posted by loricalabrese on April 2, 2012

The former Governor of Alaska has delivered many surprises since she was announced as John McCain’s vice-presidential pick in 2008 and tomorrow, Palin will raise eyebrows once again as she will debut as a one-day co-host for NBC’s Today Show. The Today Show website states, “Sarah Palin will co-host Tuesday. She’ll reveal a different side of her than you’ve seen before.”

Palin does have anchor experience from her college days as a sportscaster and her recent experience as a FOX News contributor will certainly help. However, what makes this news exciting to everyone is the fact that Palin’s Today show appearance will be competing with Katie Couric, currently filling in for Robin Roberts on Good Morning America. As you remember, the media loves to play up the interview Couric did with Palin during the 2008 election when Couric asked the former Governor what newspapers she read for information.

On Breitbart News, Palin was asked about going head-to-head with Couric.

“Game on,” Palin replied.

While many see the time slot as Palin vs. Couric Round Two, many also see it as NBC vs. CBS, which continues to be in a ratings war. The last time GMA beat Today in ratings was in December 1995, however, they keep inching closer and, in the most recent week for which ratings are available, GMA came in only about 140,000 viewers shy of Today.

So will NBC continue to be #1 in the ratings war with such a shocking move?

“I see this as a good opportunity to bring an independent, common-sense conservative perspective to NBC,” Palin also stated on Breitbart news. “We’re ‘going rogue’ and infiltrating some turf for a day.”

Unlike other media outlets who will be focused on the Couric-Palin match-up, I’m most interested in seeing how Palin does infiltrate the turf she’s labeled as the lamestream media. Remember it was the Today show that touted an “exclusive” interview in 2010 with author Joe McGinniss, who accused Palin of overreacting to his presence when he moved in next door to ‘research’ a Palin expose. The Today Show reached out to Palin for her comments on the issue, but failed to air them, presenting a one-sided story. As a result, Palin lambasted the Today show in a Facebook post, “Is It Any Wonder Why We Call them Lame?”  Palin praised social networking and new media sites that have allowed people to get around the ‘lamestream’ media and present the facts.

“Freedom of the press is integral to our democracy, but reporters must be held accountable because with power comes responsibility,” Palin said in the note. “A corrupt, deceptive, and manipulative media can ruin the lives of good people, disrupt families, destroy reputations, and ultimately hurt our country.”

So it looks as though the gloves are off and Palin has the opportunity to demand integrity from the same media that has a hateful obsession with her. And does anyone else find it ironic that the Today Show, one of the media outlets that has an insatiable desire to beat and beat and beat Palin has chosen to enlist her services to revive their ratings? There’s so much involved with Palin’s appearance on The Today Show and if Palin can withstand the liberal media bias, she may accomplish what many of us have wanted for a very long time besides a woman in the White house–a mainstream conservative anchor woman.

It’s not too late for Palin to get in race

Posted by loricalabrese on February 16, 2012

The presidential race is chugging along and we have our GOP candidates, right? Wrong! The ups and downs of the GOP front-runners has been turbulent like an airplane in a storm. Some hint that it’s the strengths of the candidates whereas others suggest it’s strictly the weakness of Romney. Whatever the case, the front-runner switch-a-roo has led many to speculate a brokered convention.

A brokered convention takes place when a candidate doesn’t win enough delegates during the primary and caucus period to have a pre-existing majority, during the first official vote for a political party’s presidential candidate at its nominating convention.

The last time a brokered convention took place was in 1948 when Thomas Dewey was chosen as the Republican nominee and in 1932, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a Democrat, was the last brokered convention nominee to actually win the presidency.

Wednesday on Fox News, Eric Bolling interviewed Sarah Palin about the possibility of a brokered convention in Tampa, Florida in August and asked if she’d be interested in jumping in the race.

Palin said, “Well for one, I think it could get to that. And if it had to be kind of closed up today, the whole nominating process…then we would be looking at a brokered convention. Nobody is quite there yet.” Palin then added, “So I think that months from now if that’s the case, then all bets are off as to who it will be willing to offer themselves up in the name of service to their country. I would do whatever I could to help.”

So is a brokered convention likely? Many speculate no. We’re four contests in that have already awarded delegates, some fear it will likely hurt the Republican party in the end, handing the election to Obama; brokered conventions are expensive; and chances are, the current crop might refuse to back down.

However, many experts are saying a brokered convention could happen. Let’s face it, things have taken a sharp turn since South Carolina. Romney supporters are scarce, he’s been trounced by Gingrich and now Santorum has stepped to the plate to steal much of the spotlight. If Mitt Romney loses the GOP primary in his native state of Michigan on February 28 to Rick Santorum, a brokered convention might be a sure deal after all.

And what are Palin’s chances? Remember, the former Governor stated in September on Fox News’ Hannity that this would be an unconventional election cycle. “I do think, Sean, this is going to be such an unconventional election cycle. Because this has been such an unconventional administration that we are fighting so hard and so committed to replacing. It’s not just the administration but it’s the Senate, those who have followed like sheep behind President Obama and allowed him to do what he has done in terms of harm to our economy…Mark my word, it is going to be an unconventional type of election process.”

A brokered convention would fit into that unconventional cycle and the media would have a frenzy with it. Just think of the drama, the front covers devoted to the Republican race, and every channel delving into the possibility of Sarah Palin or Jeb Bush getting into the game. Some are concerned that a brokered candidate would not have enough time to propel themselves to the level to go head-to-head with the Obama machine and campaign budget. However, it’s not impossible for a candidate to craft a ground game, hire a campaign staff, raise money and get their name out there in two months. In fact, some already have their name out there such as Palin. She roused conservatives at CPAC, proving she hasn’t faded from the political scene as many would like to suggest. And perhaps it could be a game plan by the Republicans to throw off the democrats and the media. Two months would give the democrats and the media less time to attack the Republican candidate.

Only time will tell if a brokered convention takes place and which candidate could emerge on top, but Palin told Bolling, “I cannot predict what will happen in the future, but I know that I have got the fire in my belly to try to help, to try to make a difference and if that involves running for public office at some point in the future, I’m game for that.”

Expect some strategic plays from Christie and Palin

Posted by loricalabrese on October 6, 2011

With Sarah Palin and Chris Christie not running for the GOP nomination in 2012, it’s a whole new ballgame in the general election, but don’t expect to have heard the last word from the two who have officially become kingmaker and queenmaker.

Palin and Christie are polarizing personalities, which is why many were clamoring for the two to run, but since they are such high-wattage personalities, you can definitely expect each to play a role in the presidential campaign.

“I will continue driving the discussion for freedom and free markets,” Palin pledged in an e-mail to her supporters. “In the coming weeks I will help coordinate strategies to assist in replacing the president, retaking the Senate and maintaining the House.”

Palin who previously stated that a title would shackle her appeared on ‘On the Record’ with Greta Van Susteren Wednesday night and explained her decision to not throw her hat in the race.

“Decided that it’s a no, Greta, because after prayerful consideration and a lot of discussion with the family, I concluded that I believe I can be an effective voice in a real decisive role in helping get true public servants elected to office, not just in the presidency, but we have 33 Senate seats coming up,” Palin said. “We have a House of Representatives that we need to strengthen in numbers, conservatives who understand that our country has got to get back on the right track economically here, and governors’ seats around the nation. I believe I can be an effective voice for some positive change in these positions.”

Although Palin supporters are a bit disappointed, it’s important to remind everyone about Palin’s role in the 2010 midterm elections. The former Alaska governor threw her support behind dozens of candidates, a mixture of tea party types and more established Republicans. The Washington Post even went so far as creating a Palin political tracker that mapped out her endorsements. It’s no surprise that already several 2012 candidates have reached out to her. I don’t expect Palin to fade from the scene and a Palin endorsement is more valuable than ever.

In fact, Newt Gingrich, the former speaker of the House told Fox News today that he has been trying to set up a call with the former Alaska governor and was asked whether he would want Palin’s backing,

Gingrich answered, “Oh sure, I think any candidate would like to have her endorsement. But I don’t expect her to jump in in the near future. She is a citizen in her own right, she’s a force in her own right.”

Gingrich added that he doesn’t think an endorsement is coming any time soon. “I think that she will have an impact by talking out on issues and talking about specific things,” he added, saying any of the GOP candidates would love to gain Palin’s support because “she has so many followers who really listen to her and pay attention to her.”

That’s exactly what Palin did in 2010. She held back her endorsements until it was close to the election and I’m sure that’s what we can expect for 2012.

On “On the Record”, Palin was already in Queenmaker mode, reminding voters that we have got to be listening to candidates’ ideas, understanding what their record is, so that we know that their track record will give us a picture of where they intend to bring this country forward.

“Now, it’s going to be through the debates, and obviously, through their campaign efforts that we hear their message, that we get to vet them and learn more about their records, and that’s extremely important,” Palin said. “It’s a long process. Again, don’t put all your hope and faith in an individual, but in their ideas and what they represent, the faith that you can have that they know what they’re doing and they can bring this country forward – – listening to the will of the people.”

I don’t know about you, but I’m fascinated to find out who Christie and Palin will endorse and it was refreshing to hear Palin resort back to her old self and actually weigh in on candidates on ‘On the Record.’ Since she wasn’t sure if she was going to run, it was obvious, she was holding back approval of the current crop, but now that she’s made her decision, we can expect Palin to be her usual outspoken self and point out the candidates’ strengths and weaknesses. For example, Palin, in her Fox appearance, praised Herman Cain, touting his business acumen and background in the private sector.

“That’s that Americana story that so many of us are intrigued with and impressed with,” Palin said. “So I look forward to hearing more details about Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 program and what he proposes in terms of being able to reduce taxes even further and not look at taxes as just some kind of revenue generator so that government can grow, but treat government — let the private sector grow the businesses. I believe he knows how to do that, so I look forward to hearing more of his details.”

So as we enter another inning in the GOP presidential race, this new ballgame is sure to heat up and don’t expect the most two polarizing figures in the Republican field to sit on the sidelines. Instead, expect some strategic plays to oust Obama from office.

With Christie out, all eyes turn to Wasilla

Posted by loricalabrese on October 5, 2011

The big news in the political world is that Chris Christie will not enter the GOP race, so what’s next? Many are mumbling underneath their breath that Republicans will be forced to choose between Mitt Romney and Rick Perry, the current front-runners who have been labeled as having less than polarizing personalities. Perry seems to be losing momentum each day, the spotlight continues to shine on underdog Herman Cain, and according to a new Washington Post-ABC poll, the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza is in joint second place with Perry, each supported by 16% of Republicans; and Mitt Romney is back in front with 25%.

Let’s face it, that was one of the major positives of Chris Christie and perhaps why many in the media created a frenzy over a possible run. People liked Christie’s frankness, openness, sense of humor and tell-it-like-it is attitude. You don’t hear many politicians tell their state that they’re stuck with them! But with Christie out, the GOP race needs another shake-up. It’s obvious the media is looking for somebody to shake up the race and make things a bit more exciting. After all, consider the Republican debates. Nearly all of the candidates seem to be playing it safe with answers that they think everyone wants to hear. Answers that won’t lose them votes or alienate them from the pack.

What the GOP needs is a candidate who will attack Obama head-on, take on crony capitalism, speak their mind, and oh yeah, Go Rogue. So who is left that has the name recognition and star power to jump in late and still make a go of the 2012 GOP primary? No doubt with Christie’s announcement, there is still an opening to capture the hearts of Americans, take over media coverage, and become the conservative champion everyone is looking for.

This is where all eyes turn to Wasilla. Over the last few weeks, the draft-Christie campaign took over the airwaves. It was all everyone was talking about, but with that chapter now ended, it seems as though everyone will be waiting for that big decision from Wasilla, Alaska. Deadlines are looming and as the New York Times points out…

Ms. Palin now faces serious deadlines in October that, if missed, could keep her name off the presidential primary ballot.

The first of those comes on Oct. 15. By that date, Ms. Palin’s election team must deliver a letter of candidacy to the secretary of state in Utah if she wants her name to appear on that state’s ballot.

Utah is by no means a critical primary state, especially in a race that features two Mormon candidates, one of them a former governor of the state. Ms. Palin could decide that she does not need her name to appear.

But Florida comes next. By Oct. 31, that state’s Republican Party must deliver to state officials the list of candidates who are running for president there. It is a ballot she has to be on if she wants the Republican nomination.

Palin will be hitting the stage again on Friday as she’ll be co-hosting a “Defending the Republic” event with Glenn Beck in St. Louis. And this weekend, alongside Herman Cain, she’ll be speaking at the Liberty University Extraordinary Women conference in Lynchburg, Va.. We all know how Palin has the knack for garnering attention and it would seem that with Christie out, the media needs something or someone to talk about. The question is, will Palin jump in or not?

Palin letting Romney and Perry duke it out?

Posted by loricalabrese on September 22, 2011

9 candidates are vying for the Republican nomination and will go head to head tonight at the Fox News/Google debate in Orlando. All eyes are on the top two contenders, Mitt Romney and Rick Perry, who will duke it out for the third time in three weeks. But you have to wonder about the strategy of another potential candidate who has yet to announce—Sarah Palin.

Palin appeared on FOX News’ Hannity this week, stating that there’s still time for her to declare.

“There is still time, Sean, and I think on both sides of the aisle I think you’re going to see people coming and going from this race.  And I’m still one of those still considering the time factor,”  Palin said.  Although she said she will have to legally decide by November, she stated how this will be a different race. “But I do think Sean, this is going to be such an unconventional election cycle. … Mark my word, it is going to be an unconventional type of election process.”

Karl Rove points out on FOX News that “At this point four years ago, Rudy Giuliani led the GOP field with 28%, trailed by former Sen. Fred Thompson at 23% and John McCain at 15%, with everyone else in single digits. When the dust finally cleared, neither Messrs. Giuliani nor Thompson was a serious contender—and Govs. Romney and Mike Huckabee pressed Mr. McCain hard before he prevailed. All of which means the 2012 Republican sweepstakes is far from over.”

That can definitely be true because a new McClatchy-Marist Poll shows Palin has gained in a hypothetical matchup against President Obama, and now only trails him 49%-44% and is actually leading among independents 47%-43%.

So you have to wonder, perhaps Palin’s strategy is to let Romney and Perry duke it out with each other before she gets into the fray. The two frontrunners have been debating each other for days and the media continues to keep score, giving Perry the first debate, and Romney the second. Not only has Romney attacked Perry for calling social security a failure, Perry has made a big play to shore up his foreign policy credentials in recent days, and Perry has declared Romney Obama-lite.

As we head into their third debate, who will prevail? One thing’s for sure, if you’re Sarah Palin, it’s wise to let Romney and Perry duke it out. Who knows, they might fight so hard that they knock each other out, making room for only one candidate whose name is Palin.

Palin one step ahead of GOP presidential candidates

Posted by loricalabrese on September 13, 2011

As the heat between GOP presidential candidates continues to rise, one person getting a kick out of the whole drama playing out on TV is Sarah Palin.

Palin appeared on ‘On the Record with Greta Van Susteren’ Monday night after Monday’s GOP presidential debate and weighed in on the candidates and the deafening silence when it comes to the issues that the candidates should be addressing, many that Palin has confronted on her Facebook page, and in speeches across the country.

“I’m getting kind of a kick out of getting out there, giving a speech, making some statements about things that must be discussed and then the very next day watching some of the candidates get up there and discuss what it was that we just talked about like the corruption, the crony capitalism, the waste, the fraud – some of those things that are going on right now. It’s like, come on, candidates, it’s about time you started talking about that,” Palin said.

Palin pointed out that any of these candidates would be better than Obama, but that we also have to hold them accountable for their actions, a move that should raise even more speculation of a Palin run.

“I think though and I’m going to take some heat for saying this,Greta, but I think some of them don’t want to go there because they have been participants in some of the waste and casting votes for budgets that are full of waste, just to go along to get along,” Palin said. “Or in their own states, they haven’t tackled debt and deficit spending to the degree that they should. So they don’t have a real strong record to stand on.”

Just as a potential presidential candidate would, Palin stressed her own record of calling out the corruption in government and the issue brought up by Bachmann regarding the mandatory innoculations by Rick Perry in Texas and the possible tie-in with a party donation.

“I was Governor of Alaska at the time that issue came down and I told our health and human services department, Alaska was not going to mandate immunizations for our teenage daughters and there had to be something more to that issue,” Palin said, directing people to the mass e-mails from her time in office that were recently made public.

With every interview Palin engages in, the media will continue to obsess over any possible insight that the former Governor of Alaska will throw her hat into the ring or not and Van Susteren stealthfully addressed the CNN poll that lists Palin in third place, having not even announced an official candidacy.

Palin’s reply was that she has no drop dead date and will not let the media dictate when she gives an answer.

“…I still have that same ole’ dopey same ole’ answer that I’m sure you guys are getting sick of hearing and that is I’m still thinking about it, praying about it, contemplating, talking to my family,” Palin said. “I’m sick of giving the same answer believe me, I’m anxious to give an answer and get on with life one way or the other.”

Although Palin is still not ready to reveal whether she’ll get into the presidential race, this interview with Van Susteren was fascinating because she critiqued the current GOP field, and pointed people to her own strengths and record–something we’d definitely expect from a potential candidate.

Palin: President is bold to ask for another blank check

Posted by loricalabrese on September 10, 2011

While most Democrats loved Obama’s jobs speech Thursday night, stating that the president was on fire, and brought strength to his speech, Sarah Palin appeared on FOX News’ “America Live” with Megyn Kelly on Friday and offered her own reaction.

“I don’t consider it a plan at all. He had no plan,” Palin said.

Palin condemned Obama for asking for another blank check and going about it in a similar way to how he and Nancy Pelosi shoved Obamacare down Americans’ throats: pass the bill and you’ll find out how we’re going to pay for it.

Bottom line is that the newly formed debt committee will be left to find another $500 billion to pay for this plan and Palin pointed this out, stating that Obama was passing the buck to the committee to do his job for him.

Palin also pointed out that spending more money and growing more government is not the answer to our woes. It’s the private sector that creates jobs and although the bill has been highly touted as bipartisan, the former Governor stressed how that’s been shoved down our throats.

“Some of the things that he talked about, yes, republicans have gotten behind,” Palin said. “And in fact, have proposed it, but the president was disingeniuos when he insisted over and over again that everything in this package has been endorsed by all and everything is going to work and over and over again, kind of shoving down our throats this idea that he is right.”

In addition to the jobs act, Kelly also asked Palin about Rick Perry and the other GOP candidates’ performances at the recent GOP debate

“It surprised me that some of the political street smarts weren’t on display and these candidates weren’t able to pivot from some of the questions into answering questions in terms of what the American voter needs to hear,” Palin said. Palin stressed that the issues we need to be focusing on right now are the debt, deficit spending and how we’re going to get away from those problems.

Of course, Palin couldn’t escape the inevitable question of whether or not she will be entering the race.

“I still believe people will be coming and going … but I don’t know if I’ll be one of those people,” Palin said.

Why Sarah Palin should run for president

Posted by loricalabrese on July 11, 2011

One of the biggest questions that remains unanswered regarding the 2012 election is, Will Sarah Palin run for president? The former Alaska Governor has many speculating about whether or not she will mount a 2012 campaign, but one thing is certain–grassroots movements in support of Palin have grown stronger than ever. Just as Palin has inspired her supporters to turn out and influence the outcome of who is in office, Palin supporters are cranking up the energy to spark a Palin campaign.

One of those movements is Youth for Palin, a non-profit organization striving to implement the strong conservative values to our youth just as former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin has throughout her political career. Elizabeth Hawkes is the co-founder of the group Youth for Palin and she’s written an essay titled, “Why Sarah Palin should run for president” . . .

I am a retired civil engineer and a married, born-again, Christian woman. I currently serve as the co-founder of Youth For Palin on Facebook and on the web:

I reside in Port St. Lucie, Florida with my handsome husband, Gregory.

Sarah Palin has stolen my patriotic heart because we both share a love for country and down-home American values and I am pleased to write this essay as a tribute to the next and first female American president.

Sarah Palin was thrust onto the world’s stage as America’s foremost political newcomer in 2008 and despite an ever-present glaring spotlight seemingly cutting to the marrow for both her public persona and private affairs, I was drawn to her by simply listening to the truth her words conveyed.

She spoke of reducing the size of government, her pride in her country and of fidelity to America’s continued fight for freedom and liberty.

Now, more than two years later, Sarah Palin continues the fight by speaking out against government-mandated health care, abortion on demand, gun control that would strip us of our Second Amendment rights, and out-of-control spending in Washington.

For me, Sarah Palin embodies strength of character, grace under pressure and dignity that has elevated her above her accusers; only tarnishing themselves in their relentless attempts to malign her professional record and personal integrity.

Despite what some in the mainstream media would have us believe, Sarah Palin is a godly, honest woman interested only in reducing big government and restoring our country to the principles on which our great nation was founded.

I believe Sarah Palin should run for president of the United States, because she is the only real candidate that both the Tea Party and independent conservative patriots can wholeheartedly support for the 2012 election, thus avoiding the uncomfortable and unjustly compromising position of having to support, without recourse, a second choice and less viable GOP establishment liberal.

Sarah Palin possesses not only experience and an untarnished background but, as a legislator, has earned the trust of her constituents in Alaska and all constitutional social conservatives across our great land.

Sarah Palin is truly the people’s choice and the only candidate who possesses the qualifications and knowledge to beat an incumbent Democratic president.

God bless Sarah Palin and the United States of America.
