Palin Adviser Tim Crawford part of ShePAC Team

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on February 7, 2012

From the ShePAC website:

“We will identify women who are proven leaders and who stand strong for conservative principles, and we will deploy the resources necessary to give them the best chance of winning.”

From http://www.reuters.com:

(Reuters) – An adviser to Sarah Palin, a Tea Party leader and a Republican politician are starting a super PAC to endorse conservative women running for office and gather women’s support for the Republican nominee in the presidential election.

The political action committee, called ShePAC, is the brainchild of Tim Crawford, who has advised 2008 vice presidential nominee Palin and former President Ronald Reagan; Teri Christoph, one of the original Tea Party activists; and Suzanne Haik Terrell, former Senate candidate from Louisiana who now runs Project GoPink, a group that encourages Republican women to run for office.

The group filed registration documents with the Federal Election Commission on Tuesday to create the super PAC, its leaders said.

ShePAC is the latest super PAC to join dozens of such ouside groups that can now raise unlimited amounts of money as long as they do not work in concert with official campaigns, thanks to a 2010 U.S. Supreme Court decision.  More

Can Palin overcome the ‘women hate women’ factor?

Posted by loricalabrese on November 22, 2010

Chris Rock boiled it down to one very memorable comedy routine “You would think women would rule the world. But they don’t. They don’t. You know why? Because women hate women! Women hate women!”

It’s not a new story, but if Sarah Palin declares her candidacy for the White House, it’s one that will certainly consume much of the media for months. In fact, it’s already being debated. Should Palin throw her name in the race? Can she beat Obama? Critics say her favorability numbers are low among independents and they worry, in particular, that she will alienate women voters. Rewind back to 2008…one of the main reasons McCain put Palin on the ticket was because he wanted to reach out to women voters, however, the voters who deserted McCain and Palin the fastest were mostly women.Perhaps Chris Rock is onto something. . .

Was it the year of the conservative woman?

Posted by loricalabrese on November 3, 2010

Many people credit Sarah Palin with the rise of the Mama Grizzly and the number of Republican women who have broken through as serious candidates in this election year. As a female watching last night’s elections, I was both elated and saddened.

Within the last two years, women have seen a string of breakthroughs when Hillary Rodham Clinton became the first woman to vie seriously for the Democratic presidential nod, Sarah Palin became the first woman nominated for national office by the GOP and Democrat Nancy Pelosi became the first woman elected speaker of the House

Adding to those breakthroughs in last night’s elections were South Carolina’s State Rep. Nikki Haley, Oklahoma’s U.S. Rep. Mary Fallin and New Mexico’s district attorney Susanna Martinez, becoming the first women to occupy their state’s chief executive office. At the same time, Haley and Martinez became the country’s first two women of color governors: Martinez the country’s first Hispanic woman governor, and Haley the country’s first Indian-American woman governor.“Mama Grizzlies” also celebrated victories with New Hampshire’s Republican Senate candidate Kelly Ayotte, Oklahoma’s gubernatorial candidate Mary Fallin, Minnesota’s Michele Bachman who was re-elected, Missouri’s Vicky Hartzler who defeated 34-year incumbent Ike Skeleton and Arizona’s Gov. Jan Brewer, the only female gubernatorial incumbent who ran this year and is now set for another term.

Earlier this year, CNN declared 2010 the year of the conservative woman. And although more Republican women have broken through as serious candidates than ever before, it should be noted that only 47 Republican women ran for the House out of 435 seats. And the number of Republican women running was still not enough to make up for the losses among Democrats.This election saw a net decrease in the number of women in congress since 1978 because many Democratic women lost their seats.

Siobhan “Sam” Bennett, president of the Women’s Campaign Forum, recently told CNN, “We’re ranked 90th in the world in the number of women in elected office. We trail behind Cuba and Afghanistan,” she said, citing data from the Inter-Parliamentary Union on the percentage of women in national parliaments. . .

Michelle Bachmann Speaker Of The House? You Bet’Cha!

Posted by Gary P Jackson on November 27, 2009

As usual, our friends at HillBuzz have hit on a provocative idea.

If you’re not a regular reader of HillBuzz you are missing out on some great reading. I discovered this group during the 2008 election cycle. The guys over there a lifelong democrats who got really fed up with the direction the party has gone. As the site’s name implies, they are huge supporters of Hillary Clinton, but let me tell you, you won’t find any stronger a group of Sarah Palin supporters out there.

I enjoy HillBuzz because they bring an entirely new perspective to the debate, a while different line of critical thinking. Classify the group any way you wish, but they certainly understand Conservative principles and values, and articulate them in they own unique style.

Anyhow, they have a very interesting idea here that many on our side would not have thought of: Michelle Bachmann as Speaker of the House. Now if you are a strong Conservative, you’re a fan of Micelle Bachmann. Like Sarah Palin, Bachmann is a tough, strong woman. Bachmann is absolutely fearless in her position as a Congresswoman. She has zero reservations when it comes to standing up for the Constitution, and taking on those who would run afoul of it’s intent.

Here’s what HillBuzz has to say:

Today we had an interesting breakfast at Nookie’s Tree (pumpkin pancakes, yo) with a friend of ours deeply involved in local Democrat politics here in Illinois. He’s a firm backer of Governor Quinn, and wants Hoffman to win the Dems’ Senate nomination (and is working hard behind the scenes to take corrupt mob banker Alexi Giannoulias down before he can win the Dem primary next year). Because of our support of McCain/Palin and the other stances we’ve taken since the takeover of the Democrat Party and its occupation by Utopian radicals, we’ve had little contact with this friend because the lot of us here have become “toxic” in Dem circles in Chicago. That’s fine with us, honestly, because we can’t in good faith work for a party that behaves the way it does, and treats women and gays the way it so enjoys doing.

But, our friend is a great conversationalist, and enjoys scrying into the future as much as we do. He believes Democrats will hold the Senate in next year’s midterms, but that Harry Reid will be defeated, by Sue Lowden most likely, and Dick Durbin will be installed as the new Senate Majority Leader (which will be a Christmas present to Republicans, since Durbin is a truly stupid and bumbling man, worse than Reid if that is even humanly possible).

He also thinks Democrats will indeed lose the House, as he’s hearing of more House members deciding not to seek re-election, knowing their votes on Utopicare will doom their careers. They have all been promised highly lucrative post-government jobs by Nancy Pelosi, however, so many of these Dems are willing to take the bullets for Utopiacare so that they can make millions in the coming years by working as “consultants” and then lobbyists, with Pelosi and the DNC’s employment agency placing them into golden parachutes (more like golden showers, if you ask us. Google it.).

What’s unclear to us is who the GOP has lined up to take Pelosi’s place if they get control of Congress.

Someone like Michelle Bachmann would be incredible, but our friend insists she’s not even on the long list, let alone the short list for the job. “Remember, Republicans are all about “whose turn it is” and “who has been waiting longest for the job”. There is no sense of timeliness with them, and never any consideration for who would be best to lead the party. They just get in a line and years later it’s their turn to be the nominee or the Speaker or whatever. That’s how Republicans do things, and that’s why they are so beatable usually”.

Every day, we want to know more and more about Michelle Bachmann because, like Sarah Palin, we are witnessing someone at the start of her national career who will be around for a very long time, with the potential to change American politics as we know it.

The Tea Parties could install Bachmann as Speaker, we believe, if the Tea Party Movement itself grows, buckles down, and becomes a larger force to be reckoned with going into 2010.

Palin herself could help deliver Bachmann unto the Speaker’s chair, if the candidate Palin campaigns for next year mostly win, and the next Congressional majority owes a lot to Palin. It appears Palin and Bachmann are friendly, if not already allies. Palin would be well-served with one of her own as Speaker. That could help Palin’s groundgame in 2012 immensely.

Speaker Boehner seems to be the way Republicans would go, because he looks like he’s next in line, but he’d be such a bad choice in our opinion. He’s not bold enough, not gutsy enough, and not memorable enough.

Whoever replaces Nancy Pelosi needs to be a firecracker. We also think the GOP needs to put a woman in that Speaker’s chair. Because of the misogyny the Democrats have wallowed in for the last two years, many women are open to voting Republican for the first time in their lives. Republicans, thus, have the once-in-our-lifetime chance to be seen as “the party for women”. Some of you might not like identity politics, but a great deal of independents sure do.

Independents decide elections…and many former Democrats are now independents who would like to see a woman succeed Pelosi.

Bachmann would make a dynamic, relevant, and capable Speaker, in our opinion.

A firecracker like that tossed into the top spot in the House would light a fuse that could blow Dr. Utopia from office in 2012, taking the rest of the Liberals in Congress with him.

What are your thoughts on Speaker Bachmann? Could it happen? Should it happen?

What happens if it happens?

Obviously, I have to echo their questions to the reader. Could it happen? Should it happen? And, what happens if it happens!

Sean Hannity calls Michelle Bachmann the “second most hated Conservative woman in America,” a title she seems to relish. (We ALL know who the most hated Conservative is!)

Michelle will be a featured speaker at the first annual National Tea Party Convention. Sarah Palin, of course, is the Special Keynote Speaker at this event.

I’m not sure just how well Sarah and Michelle know each other, but the folks over at HillBuzz are certainly on to something with this idea. People already mention a Sarah Palin/Michelle Bachmann ticket for 2012 often. If you spend any amount of time on Conservative websites, you’ll see this mentioned constantly. I think what HillBuzz is saying though makes a lot of sense, and would certainly be beneficial to Sarah Palin, and a Palin presidency.

Look, I like John Boehner. I also like my own Congressman, John Carter, he’s a great Conservative leader. But the idea of someone bold like Michelle Bachmann as Speaker of the House is fascinating. And bold leadership is what we need right now. Ronald Reagan used to caution against the temptation to “paint in pale pastels.” Reagan always championed “painting with bold colors.” What Reagan meant was we need bold leadership, bold leaders who will strive to do great things.

Sarah Palin is obviously someone who fits the bill, but what of Michelle Bachmann? I think one has to look no farther than the dressing down she gave Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke to see she is all business:

Here Michelle gives an impassioned speech on the House floor in which she takes to task our new “total gangster government.”

Look, I have been one of those who has been on the Palin/Bachmann for 2012 bandwagon. I think it would be a superb ticket. You have two strong, bold women. Both mothers who are raising a large family.

Michelle, like Sarah has 5 children, and has also been a foster parent to 23 other children. Personally, I think motherhood has given both of these great women a perspective the “good old boys” will never have on things. And I say this as a typical, old fashioned “good old boy.”

Here’s where it makes sense to have Michelle Bachmann as Speaker, rather than Vice President to Sarah Palin. If Sarah runs, and I know all of us will do everything in our power to encourage her to, she is going to want to bring sweeping changes to government.

We all know her philosophy. We all know she wants to shrink government, cut waste, and usher in great reforms. Sarah will also have a strong domestic energy agenda, as well as an economic growth agenda, and a very aggressive national security agenda. Michelle Bachmann would be a strong ally. She could easily help Sarah’s agenda, which is America’s agenda.

Having a strong, bold leader like Michelle Bachmann as Speaker of the House would be of great benefit to a President Sarah Palin, and of great benefit to the nation. Our next Congress and next President are facing the herculean task of dismantling the failed democrat/communist quagmire that has been created by allowing “progressives” to have a foothold in government. Budgets will have to be slashed, certain programs eliminated.

We need a bold energy policy, one that actually creates energy, and makes America independent from the whims of other nations. We also must retake our rightful roles and responsibilities as the world’s only superpower.

Both Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann get it. They both know what lies ahead. Most Conservatives think these two would make a great team, and now, thanks to our friends at HillBuzz, we see just how that team might look!
