Palin: Let’s Talk About the Real Issues, Mr. President

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on March 12, 2012

Fort Wasilla 1  –  Whitehouse 0

Moments ago, Sarah Palin posted a scorching note to her Facebook page that’s directed at President Obama and his failed policies.

From Sarah Palin’s Facebook page:

The far Left continues to believe American voters are not smart enough to grasp the diversionary tactics it employs to distract us from the issues our President just doesn’t want to talk about – issues that affect us all every day and must be addressed.

Exhibit A in these diversionary tactics is an absurd new attack ad President Obama has released taking my comments out of context. I’m not running for any office, but I’m more than happy to accept the dubious honor of being Barack Obama’s “enemy of the week” if that includes the opportunity to debate him on the issues Americans are actually concerned about. (Remember when I said you don’t need a title to make a difference?)

Just off the top of my head, a few of these concerning issues include: a debt crisis that has us hurdling towards a Greek-style collapse, entitlement programs going bankrupt, a credit downgrade for the first time in our history, a government takeover of the health care industry that makes care more expensive and puts a rationing panel of faceless bureaucrats between you and your doctor (aka a “death panel”), $4 and $5 gas at the pump exacerbated by an anti-drilling agenda that rejects good paying energy sector jobs and makes us more dependent on dangerous foreign regimes, a war in Afghanistan that seems unfocused and unending, a global presidential apology tour that’s made us look feeble and ridiculous, a housing market in the tank, the longest streak of high unemployment since World War II, private-sector job creators and industry strangled by burdensome regulations and an out-of-control Obama EPA, an attack on the Constitutional protection of religious liberty, an attack on private industry in right-to-work states, crony capitalism run amok in an administration in bed with their favored cronies to the detriment of genuine free market capitalism, green energy pay-to-play kickbacks to Obama campaign donors, and a Justice Department still stonewalling on a bungled operation that armed violent Mexican drug lords and led to the deaths of hundreds of innocent people.  More

How Sarah Palin can defeat Barack Obama

Posted by joshpainter on April 25, 2011

– by Josh Painter
*
In 1992 incumbent president George H. W. Bush, despite enjoying relatively strong approval ratings as high as 89 percent right after the Gulf war, was deprived of a second term in large part thanks to one man, but it wasn’t Bill Clinton or H. Ross Perot. Although Perot’s independent effort did its damage, analysis of Perot voters shows that the damage he did affected Bush and Clinton in proportions not sufficiently out of balance to have made the difference for Clinton:

Perot’s voters voted overwhelmingly for Democratic Governor candidates, and only marginally in favor of the Republican candidates for the House and Senate. Perot’s voters favored Republican Senate candidates by 2.28%, and Republican House candidates by 2.69%. Because Perot’s voters were only 1/5th of the total, that translates into about another 500,000 votes or 0.5% for Bush if they had voted in a two way presidential race the same way they voted for the Senate and House. That is about 1/7th of the margin by which Bush lost.

If Perot cost Bush the election, the proof must lie somewhere else. On a statistical basis, it’s essentially impossible to make a case for Perot costing Bush the 1992 presidential election. The election results show that Perot took many voters from Clinton among his supporters who demonstrated a low interest in politics by voting only for President and Governor, while taking marginally from Bush among those who demonstrated more commitment by casting ballots for Congress.

As for Clinton, he was mostly remembered for his rambling speech at the DNC convention four years earlier, a marathon address which was cheered when it was over mostly because it was finally over. Otherwise, he was relatively unknown on the national stage before primary season began. He quickly gained notoriety, however, and not in a good way, when allegations of his affairs began to surface in the press. There were also rumors of draft-dodging and marijuana use floating around about Clinton, and the Bush team decided to push hard on the character issue. But Clinton’s moral failings were scarcely a minor blip on voters’ radar screens. According to exit polling, something else was foremost on the minds of the electorate. 75% had said that the economy was Fairly Bad or Very Bad. After having pledged, “Read my lips, no new taxes,” in a 1988 campaign speech, Bush later became concerned with the rising federal deficit and agreed to a budget compromise with Congress to raise taxes in the mistaken belief that higher taxes would reduce the deficit. The Clinton campaign flooded the airwaves with a series of ads which showed Bush repeatedly asking the American people to read his lips, while Clinton was on the campaign trail slamming the incumbent for raising taxes. Ironically, the net effect was to make the same voters who seemed uninterested in character issues begin to question Bush’s honesty.

So who was the man who denied George H.W. Bush a second term? It was Clinton strategist James Carville, who never doubted for a minute that the recession and its impact on the electorate were the keys to a Clinton victory. To insure that everyone in the Clinton War Room — including both Clinton and Carville himself — was on the same book and page, the aide had hand-written a list on a white board and hung it on the wall. It read:

1. Change vs. more of the same
2. The economy, stupid
3. Don’t forget healthcare

Nearly two decades later, 70 percent of voters now say the country is on the wrong track, and 57 percent disapprove of the way Obama has handled the economy. The lesson here practically writes itself. We’re no fans of Carville. Our memories of him scurrying from network interview to network interview during the 2008 RNC convention with a blown-up photo of the modest structure that is Wasilla City Hall babbling on about how “dat don’t look like no gubmint building. Dat look like a bait stand in south Luzianna” still rankles. We don’t agree with much of what he has to say most of the time, but in the run up to the 1992 election, Carville was right as rain after a long Texas drought about the economy and how to exploit the issue.

It’s the economy again, stupid. It’s not about where Barack Obama was born, and it’s not about any social issue, at least in the minds of the voters. They aren’t just concerned about the economy, they’re very worried about it. So economic issues — whether it’s the price of gasoline and other goods and services, the federal deficit, looming inflation, the budget, the debt ceiling, the housing market, and what Vice President Biden referred to as a “three letter word – j-o-b-s” — are the keys to making sure Obama’s further presidential ambitions will suffer the same fate as those of Bush41 twenty years ago. Just reminding voters of these issues won’t be enough, of course. The successful GOP candidate will have to present real solutions to these fiscal problems, solutions which voters believe will work.

If and when Sarah Palin gets into the 2012 race for president, James Carville’s short list of three items should be plastered all over the walls at her election headquarters.

1. Change vs. more of the same

Carville’s first point can be very effectively driven home by taking a page out of Ronald Reagan’s playbook. The governor should ask voters in every stump speech, “Are you better off now than you were four years ago?” Most aren’t, so they will pay attention when she explains how she can make things better.

2. The economy, stupid

She can pound away at Obama as the bus driver who’s got the economy headed over a cliff. She already knows from the 2008 election that voters don’t care who he used to hang out with, where he was born, or how much of a deranged Marxist his former pastor is. They’re all valid points to conservatives, but the larger electorate tuned out and didn’t listen last time, just as they weren’t interested in Clinton’s character in 1992, and they’re not likely to want to hear such talk now. But if she talks about the pain at the pump, when filling up the family ride takes the lion’s share of a $100 dollar bill, it will hit home. So will talk of higher prices and smaller servings at the grocery store and the the family’s favorite restaurants. Abortion is an issue close to the governor’s heart, and justifiably so. But talking about how domestic drilling makes us more energy secure and has the side benefit of creating jobs will resonate with the voters, while condemning Planned Parenthood will only make their eyes glaze over. To be able to appoint justices who will strike down Roe. v Wade, she will have to first get elected, and managing the debate over the economy successfully will go a long way toward helping her to do that.

3. Don’t forget healthcare

This one takes on a whole new meaning now that ObamaCare has been rammed through. The results of a poll released April 18 show that this is still an unpopular measure, with 52 percent of Americans in favor of its repeal. But the issue is strongly tied to the economy, and treating it not just as a matter of government intrusion, but as an economic issue as well will hit home with voters if they understand how ObamaCare will affect their lives and those of their family members. For many Americans, their aging parents will be ill served by ObamaCare, while their children will have to pay for it.

Staying focused on the economy will require no small measure of campaign discipline of Gov. Palin and her team, but the rewards will be great. She will need some well-defined plans which she can present as white papers on energy, health care, debt and the deficit, the budget, jobs and much more. But we don’t doubt that she is capable of doing this and building a team of problem-solvers to help her.

Game On!

Gov. Palin: Obama is mistaken. Again.

Posted by joshpainter on March 14, 2011

– by Josh Painter
*
For the second time in three days, Sarah Palin used Twitter to call President Obama out for his misleading statements on U.S. domestic oil reserves and production. She tweeted late Sunday afternoon:

“Pres is mistaken. Again. Claims we control 2% world’s oil & he ‘boosts production’?Who advises him?Who writes his stuff?Why won’t press ask?”

John Hinderaker explains the 2% deception:

That two percent figure is one that you hear all the time from liberals. It refers to the fact that the United States has only two percent of the world’s “proven reserves” of petroleum. This is what a character in a Nabokov novel called a “doughnut truth”–the truth, the whole truth, with a hole in the truth. Here is the hole: there is no universal definition of “proven reserves,” and “proven reserves” do not represent what Obama called “every single reserve available to us.”

[…]

Liberals like Barack Obama imply that America only has two percent of the world’s petroleum, but that is completely false. We only have two percent of the “proven reserves” that are recoverable under current “government regulations” and at current petroleum prices. We could increase our proven reserves overnight by opening up new areas to exploration and development; ANWR is just one of many examples. And our proven reserves increase every time the price of oil rises.

Under American law, there is another category of petroleum in the ground called “undiscovered technically recoverable oil.” I believe this category is also limited to areas that are legally available for development, but nevertheless, this category encompasses an enormous amount of energy…

[More]

As for “boosting production,” Obama is falsely taking credit for production growth which occurred over the last decade, even though he has only been in the White House for a little over two years, as Steve Maley points out:

Obama Administration policies had nothing whatever to do with the production buildup in late ‘09 into early 2010.

That production growth is due almost entirely to a handful of large deepwater fields, notably BP’s Thunder Horse, which came on production during that time frame.

”First oil” came on June 14, 2008. Since then, Thunder Horse has steadily ramped up its production by bringing on new wells. In March 2009, Thunder Horse produced close to 250,000 barrels per day (40,000 m3/d) oil equivalent in oil and natural gas from seven wells.

So Thunder Horse by itself accounts for almost all of that abrupt ramp-up in oil production.

Does Obama deserve credit?

Thunder Horse sits in 6,200 feet of water. The leases date from 1988 (Reagan) and 1994 (Clinton). The discovery well was drilled in 1999, and the platform was set in 2005, during the George W. Bush Administration.

Due to the Deepwater Moratorium/Permitorium and the shutdown of the Offshore Leasing Program, we have essentially stopped looking for the next Thunder Horse.

Instead, half the available rig fleet sits idle due to a lack of permits. The BOEMRE’s current permitting backlog is comprised of 270 shallow-water and 52 deepwater wells. The Obama Adminstration threatens to reject seven of the outstanding deepwater permits rather than comply with Judge Feldman’s order to approve them or show cause within 30 days.

Production elsewhere in the U.S. has also increased, but no thanks to Obama’s policies. It is industry ingenuity and competitiveness that has led the production growth, in the Bakken Shale of North Dakota, the Eagleford Shale of South Texas and in the Permian Basin of West Texas. This increase is driven by technology (horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing) and by product prices. None of these areas are primarily on Federal lands; they have excelled in spite of hostile Federal policies, not because of them.

On Friday, Gov. Palin also criticized Obama’s false claims about domestic energy.

Imagine if President Palin were doing this

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on February 26, 2011

Rush Limbaugh’s almost endless list of “what if” eloquently demonstrates the bias the of main stream media when it comes to President Obama. Listen for yourself.

Palin: Obama’s 3 a.m. call went to answering machine

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on February 5, 2011

Remember Hillary Clinton’s “3:00 a.m. phone call” commercial”? I do and it certainly made an impact on me. When it comes to Egypt, it seems that President Obama has received that 3:00 a.m. phone call and Sarah Palin has something to say about it in her interview with Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody ~Jackie~

From http://www.cnn.com:

Washington (CNN) – Sarah Palin, in her first comments on the uprising in Egypt, called the situation President Barack Obama’s 3 a.m. phone call and said, “It seems the call went right to the answering machine.”

Palin, the former GOP vice presidential candidate, spoke with Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody after her speech Friday night at the Reagan Ranch in Santa Barbara, California.

In the interview, the potential Republican presidential candidate said, “We need to know what it is America stands for so we know who it is that America will stand with. And we do not have all that information (from the administration) yet.”

She told “The Brody File” she was “not real enthused about what it is that’s being done on a national level and from (Washington) in regards to understanding all the situation there in Egypt.”   More

Happy Christmas to all

Posted by ehvogel on December 24, 2010

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through D.C.,
not a pundit was stirring (at least not on TV).

All deadlines were met as the office did clear,
their latest opinions flung hither and near.

The editors all trudged to their favorite pubsite,
where eggnog and whiskey were poured through the night.

With Michelle in her Snuggie and Bam in his briefs,
they both hunkered down for a night without chiefs.

When up on the laptop arose such a clatter,
Sarah Palin had tweeted a new subject matter!

Away to the laptop Bam flew in a dash,
her new post would surely appear a flash!

As the screensaver crawled with The President’s Seal,
Bam swiped the touchpad to see what he’d reveal.

When what to his horrified eyes should appear,
but a new Facebook post Sarah’s fans would hold dear.

“Praise be to God on this wonderful day,
when He gave us His son to help light our way.

Though tucked in a manger with swaddling clothes
He’d grow to inspire with all that He knows.

As all Christians among us, The Founders would dwell,
on the strength and the wisdom His message did tell.

The message is clear to all who will hear it
our country is strong when we live in His spirit.”

Aghast and bewildered, Bam fell back to bed
with visions of Sarah still spinning his head.

“What could this all mean?” Bam muttered in shock,
“I’ve given them hope but my re-election’s no lock!”

“What message could ever be stronger than mine?
What hope can be offered for a free-market decline?”

To all that can listen, the message is clear,
we don’t want Marxism, it’s God we want near.

His message enlightens us all in our dreams,
The Founders knew more than political schemes.

They prayed to the heavens and asked for insight
to help stop a future destruction or plight.

It’s all there for anyone willing to see,
founding docs and their history is all that need be.

They’re anchored in praise to the God we all trust,
they’re honest and simple and follow we must.

Forget the last Congress and for all that it stood,
we must say again, no Marxists for good!

For all of life’s choices that bring good or ill,
it’s the freedom of choice that gives liberty still.

I’d much rather choose between what’s right or not,
than let D.C. do it for the pain that is wrought.

My holiday wish is to end all the mystery
that Bam and his cronies would do to our history.

We’ve struggled before and we’ve managed to mend,
we’ll make sure that liberty does not ever end.

So be strong in convictions that guide us tonight
and every day hence as we further the fight.

I leave you to ponder the truth of His might,
Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night.

Andrew Malcolm: More good news for Sarah Palin

Posted by joshpainter on November 29, 2010

Things have been going Gov. Palin’s way lately, and Andrew Malcolm sees even more good news for the possible presidential candidate:

Fans are lining up in the cold 24 hours in advance to buy her new book during the 16-city promotion tour for “America by Heart.” “This lady will be the next president of the United States of America,” said an enthused Brian Roper in Tulsa.

She’s got a hit cable TV show. Polls of Republicans show the former Alaska governor is currently a most popular candidate for the party’s 2012 presidential nomination.

And now, believe it or not, even President Obama has an encouraging word for her. The Democrat tells ABC’s Barbara Walters that he’s not paying attention to his possible White House competitor.

[…]

That would be repeating the same mistake some of Obama’s Democrat competitors made back in 2006-07.

They thought that an inexperienced elected state official who’d quit that job to run for higher office, who could give a real good speech but had zero foreign policy experience and who had only written a couple of best-selling books, could not possibly present a serious political challenge to established Washington veterans.

And we all know now how accurate that thinking was.

More at Top of the Ticket.

Even President Obama makes verbal gaffes

Posted by loricalabrese on July 19, 2010

Following his 50th town hall meeting in Massac County. U.S. Senator Obama poses in front of the Superman Statue in downtown Metropolis, IL. known as the home of the DC Comics super hero.

Whenever former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin makes a verbal gaffe, the media can’t wait to pounce. On Sunday, Palin made a mistake using “refudiate,” when she tweeted, “Ground Zero Mosque supporters: doesn’t it stab you in the heart, as it does ours throughout the heartland? Peaceful Muslims, pls refudiate.”

Palin later corrected herself and tweeted, “”‘Refudiate,’ ‘misunderestimate,’ ‘wee-wee’d up.’ English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!”

Palin was citing when former President George W Bush used “misunderdestimate” and Obama last year referred to people in Washington being “wee-wee’d up.” Press Secretary Robert Gibbs later tried to define it by saying, “I think wee-weed up is when people just get all nervous for no particular reason.”

Fact is, when you’re in the public’s eye, mistakes are bound to happen. They may be the leaders of the free world, but even United States Presidents are human.  Yes folks, even President Barack Obama still flubs his lines like most politicians and we can expect to hear more. Here are five of the best “Obama-isms”…

1. “On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the audience here today — our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.” –Barack Obama

2. “This is like the Special Olympics or something.” –Barack Obama, on The Tonight Show, referring to his pitiful bowling game (March 13)

3. “The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, savings and inefficiencies to our health care system.” –Barack Obama

4. “Let me be absolutely clear. Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. It will be a strong friend of Israel’s under a McCain…administration. It will be a strong friend of Israel’s under an Obama administration. So that policy is not going to change.” –Barack Obama

5. “It is wonderful to be back in Oregon,” Obama said. “Over the last 15 months, we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go. Alaska and Hawaii, I was not allowed to go to even though I really wanted to visit, but my staff would not justify it.” –Barack Obama

Palin says Obama has most backasswards plan ever

Posted by loricalabrese on July 12, 2010

Sarah Palin speaking at a rally in Elon, NC during the 2008 Presidential Campaign.

Sarah Palin believes what happens in Vegas shouldn’t stay in Vegas. That’s why Palin posted a link to an article on her twitter account Sunday from the Las Vegas Review-Journal and asked her followers to circulate.

The article, an editorial titled “President: We’re Moving Forward,” slams Obama for comments he made at a Nevada fundraiser for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

“President Obama once again left behind a sinking feeling that neither he nor Sen. Reid have a clue how to pull this country out of its current dire economic straits,” the Review-Journal wrote on Thursday.

Palin provided her own words for the President in a separate tweet

“He’s (Obama’s) got most disconnected, backasswards plan ever imposed on the country we love.”

In his speech, Obama slammed Reid’s Republican challenger, Sharron Angle for her views on social security, medicare, education, and the Gulf oil spill victims’ compensation fund.

“While the president did not mention Mr. Reid’s front-running Republican challenger Sharron Angle by name, he did comment on her plan to let younger workers invest part of their Social Security withholdings in private accounts they would own, while Washington would continue paying promised benefits to older Americans,” the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

“On a lot of these issues, she favors an approach that’s even more extreme than the Republicans in Washington,” said Obama. “That’s saying something. That is saying something. I mean, she wants to phase out and privatize Social Security and Medicare.”

The article pointed out how Obama admits that government is not the answer, but “at the same time he’s growing government control over our economy at the fastest rate seen since the wartime emergency of 1942, while bragging how his administration will pick and choose which “startups” are worth taxpayer subsidies.”

Palin tweeted, “Sharon Angle’s right: new workers should get to invest some Social Security withholdings in their own savings accounts & Washington continues to pay promised benefits to older workers. What part of “The System is Going Bankrupt” don’t you understand, Mr. Reid?”
