The Vetted One

Posted by Adrienne Ross on November 3, 2011

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

Politics is a dirty business. Herman Cain is finding this out the hard way. After rising in the polls, he was thrown for a loop with these recent sexual harassment accusations. Now, I wasn’t there, so I don’t know what went down. All I know is what he’s told us, and he’s told us that he has never sexually harassed anyone. Now his camp has accused the Rick Perry camp of leaking this information. Whether or not this is true, I have no idea. Again, I wasn’t there. There is much we don’t know about Cain, Perry, and all the other candidates.

And this is precisely the problem.

How much of our time, when America is desperately seeking sanity, will be spent talking about rumors and innuendos? This is a crucial period in American history. We have a President who doesn’t have a clue how to turn things around, as his dropping approval numbers show. This is the hour for conservatives to step in and make a difference. Tired of the status quo and looking for real hope and change, people want to look in a different direction than President Obama’s failed policies and total disregard for the will of the people. And what has the front-runner been answering questions about the last couple days? He’s been addressing claims that basically suggest he’s a pervert. So 999 has to take a back seat to his explanation that he told a woman she came up to his chin and was the same height as his wife!

I like Cain, and he appears to be a man of integrity, but he has yet to undergo the kind of scrutiny that allows the public to see and know him inside and out. I don’t begrudge his decision to set the record straight. He should set the record straight. And I totally despise lies and smears against a person’s character. But we all know that this isn’t going away. And now that a third woman has also made an accusation, who knows what else will surface–even if it’s untrue? And what of the accusation that Perry’s campaign was behind this? So now Perry will have to stop talking about his job-creation record and discuss this nonsense. I’m not accusing Herman Cain, Rick Perry, or anyone else of anything. I am saying that the process of being scrutinized is hard, dirty, and often not at all fair.

This is why people have been constantly saying that we need the most vetted people running for office. This is why we have longed for Governor Palin.

I don’t know the ins and outs, ups and downs of each person in this GOP field, but we’re about to find out. Politics, again, is dirty, and everything seems to be fair game. One thing we all know about Governor Palin, however, is that what you see is what you get, and the media has made sure we’ve seen it all. There is nothing left hidden under rocks or in closets. She is the most vetted person alive, perhaps the most vetted person to ever walk the earth.

As a candidate, she would have been able to focus on the important tasks at hand. She would have been that force tackling taxes, crony capitalism, energy, national security, spending, and everything else America has on her plate. There is nothing left to take attention away from those all-important issues. Everything that could be said has been said. People said she resigned from the Governor’s office because some FBI investigation was underway and that soon we would hear all about it. They slithered into her church, looking for juicy jive to report. They filed ethics complaints, causing state and family finances to suffer. They wrote articles and books, even moving in next door to do so. They attacked her children, distorted her record, and questioned the integrity of her marriage. They sent wolves among sheep to uncover any and everything they could. They scoured thousands of her emails, which served only to validate her as a hardworking, competent governor. They have tried everything–and everything has fallen flat. This is why they resort to childishly sizing up her shoes, analyzing her accent, and vilifying her vocabulary. They have nothing left!

It’s possible America could manage to survive another term of a Barack Obama presidency, but what will our country look like by the time it’s over? Will we recognize her at all? Now is supposed to be the time for a candidate to rise up and challenge President Obama and take America back. Now is not the time for skeletons to fall out of the closets of candidates yet unvetted. President Obama continues to be protected by a mainstream media who fancy him the one. We need the most vetted person–the vetted one–to take him on. Although I’m very grateful she remains in the fight for the restoration of America, that person is not in the 2012 race. I readily admit, too, that each moment a person who is in the race spends answering questions about things that cannot put America back on the right track, or help defeat President Obama, is a moment I am reminded of why I had my heart set on Governor Palin.

Total Dominance! Red State Straw Poll: Sarah Palin 52.4% Herman Cain 21.4% Ron Paul 10.2% Rick Perry 7.3%

Posted by Gary P Jackson on October 2, 2011

By Gary P Jackson.

I find this truly and absolutely delicious.

There have been a lot of presidential straw polls since silly season started, some going all the way back to a year ago this month. I’ve seen all kinds of results, but I’ve never seen such a blow-out victory for any candidate.

The website Red State ran an interesting poll in September. They asked readers who their first choice was for the Republican nomination for President, then ask who would be second choice through fifth choice. The results for first choice:

Sarah Palin 52.4% Herman Cain 21.4% Ron Paul 10.2% Rick Perry 7.3% Mitt Romney 2.4% Newt Gingrich 2.0% Michele Bachmann 1.1%. None of the other candidates were able to garner as much as 1% of the vote.

Red State did something different, telling voters they could only vote for a person once. In other words, you couldn’t vote for your candidate for first choice, then go on to vote for them as second choice and so on. They told voters that ballots with multiple votes for the same person would be voided.

It’s no surprise then, that Herman Cain was the overwhelming second choice candidate, with 33.7% of the vote. Newt Gingrich was third choice with 19.9% of the vote. Page four sees Newt again with 16.8%. Page five has Newt once more winning with 13.2%.

Out of the five chances for his fans, Rick Perry never gets more than 9.3% of the vote.

As a Palin supporter, this poll is very gratifying. Red State has been little more than Rick Perry Central since the Texas Governor entered the race. Red State and it’s editor Erick Erickson have been notoriously anti-Palin since day one. In fact, Erickson totally flipped out on Friday as the end of the month, and the media hyped “drop dead date” for Sarah Palin to announce her candidacy came and went. You can read about what Sarah Palin really said here.

On Friday Erickson took to Twitter and used his website to attack Sarah Palin and her supporters on an almost hourly basis. It was rather childish, and as William A. Jacobson pointed out, wasn’t doing his candidate Rick Perry any good. Having dealt with Perry fans, Erickson’s behavior is pretty typical though. In another post Jacobson warned Perry that throwing in with the likes of Erick Erickson will do you more harm than good.

Run, don’t walk, away from people who put their own self-aggrandizement and ego ahead of your campaign’s best interests.

Good advice.

A lot of bloggers wrote about Erickson’s meltdown, but we enjoyed HillBuzz’s Kevin DuJan’s a lot!

Wow. Erik Erikson at Redstate is having a complete mental breakdown on his site today, consumed with his obsessive hatred of Sarah Palin

Read it all here.

Red State and the editor’s obsessions have certainly not helped their candidate Rick Perry, but Perry hasn’t helped his own cause either, and new national polls show him fading fast.

The Red State poll, like all straw polling, is not scientific, but is a good indicator of support. Although not a fan of Red State in any way shape or form, we feel they put in the proper safeguards to make sure this vote is legit.

In these sort of polls, it’s the trends that matter. We’ve watched these straw polls for a year now, and the one take-away is Sarah Palin wins these more often than not, and has a solid base of support that never wavers. We see other candidates get hot and then come crashing down. Sarah Palin stays strong and steady. Her support is real and stable.

Gov. Palin vs the Other Debaters

Posted by Adrienne Ross on September 24, 2011

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

I have watched each of the Republican presidential debates, finding them mildly entertaining, if nothing else. Last night’s debate ran short of entertainment, however, and I’m becoming less and less impressed. If I have to hear Mitt Romney and Rick Perry argue over what’s in their books one more time, I might throw one at the television. What did candidates do before they wrote books? Are these Oprah Book Club events or presidential debates?

Honestly, the two so-called frontrunners aren’t doing much for me at all. Romney, of course, is as plastic as they come, and I don’t believe anything he says. He’s a flip flopper, and I simply don’t trust him. Perry is preferred to Romney, but he’s a horrible debater, and he’s on the wrong side of the immigration issue. Does he really believe that illegal aliens should get to have a free education in this country? Don’t even get me started on Ron Paul. Can you say foreign policy?

Herman Cain has a great personality, a warm sense of humor, and refreshing authenticity. I think he’s a great guy, but I don’t think he’s ready to be President of the United States.

Obviously, the person I believe is ready to move America forward is Governor Palin, but she has yet to declare. I’m still waiting, and I believe an announcement is coming soon. I look forward to what she’ll add to these debates. Not only is she solid on the issues, but she can articulate her stand on these issues based on intelligence, experience, and common sense.

Take a look back to her 2006 Alaska gubernatorial debate against Tony Knowles and Andrew Halcro after she beat Frank Murkowski in the Primary election. The first video is the full debate, and the second one has YouTube highlights.

Things will drastically change once she enters the race. I look forward to someone who will cut through the bull, call a spade a spade, challenge candidates on their records, spotlight her own, and revitalize the American people.

Trump Will Wait for Governor Palin

Posted by Adrienne Ross on September 18, 2011

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

Donald Trump reportedly met with Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry recently, and the two hit it off. Word has it that Trump was impressed with Perry and offered him his posh Palm Beach, Florida club to hold a fundraiser. That said, The Donald would not go so far as to give Perry the endorsement he sought. Why not? He’s waiting for Governor Palin. Newsmax reports:

Trump diplomatically told Perry he would not make an endorsement in the GOP primary race until he knows whether former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin plans to run.

“He told Perry nicely that he probably wouldn’t endorse anybody until she made her intentions known,” the source said.

Read the full article here.

While pundits on the right continue to dismiss the possibility that Governor Palin is running for President, and pundits on the left try to convince themselves that she’s insignificant, reality suggests something totally different. Not only do the media chase her tour bus down the road, hover over her hotel room in helicopters, and follow her around a state fair, someone as influential as Donald Trump waits to make an endorsement until she reveals whether she’ll be in the running. And make no mistake about it, whatever you think of Donald Trump, he is influential, and he’s said recently that the candidates are all reaching out to him. Nonetheless, he’s waiting to see what Governor Palin will do. If that’s what’s called insignificant, it would be interesting to see what would happen if she ever became significant.

Hang in there, Mr. Trump. Soon we’ll all know.

Michelle Malkin Debunks Gardasil-Palin Connection

Posted by Adrienne Ross on September 13, 2011

After Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann chewed out Governor Perry for the Texas mandate that young girls be inoculated with Gardasil, Governor Palin also took on this issue in her post-GOP presidential debate interview with Greta Van Susturen.

Today, some looking to accuse Governor Palin of supporting the same practice in Alaska, took to their laptops–ill-informed though they were. Michelle Malkin takes them to task for what she calls “a really, really stupid attack on Palin.” (Aren’t they all?)

To the charge that Governor Palin is guilty of what Governor Perry is–including crony capitalism–Malkin states:

It’s a freakingly obvious night and day difference — Perry’s MANDATE on families and the MANDATE on insurers going over the heads of the state legislature versus the Palin administration’s decision to accept federal subsidies to increase access to those who choose to take it. (Note: Gardasil is not and never has been mandated in the state of Alaska.)

[…]

Moreover, Palin is on record in 2008 e-mails expressing her general opposition to certain vaccine mandates.

It’s a pathetic and ill-informed act of desperation to try and turn the crony capitalism charge on Palin, which is a telling measure of how effective her voice is on this topic — and why so many would rather silence her.

Read Michelle Malkin’s full article, in which she debunks these accusations in detail, here .

Speaking of those emails, multitudes couldn’t wait until they became public so they could dig, scratch, and sniff some juicy tidbits that were supposed to expose Governor Palin for the unethical, hypocritical brute their narrative said she was. We’re constantly reminded, however, that publicizing the private emails of her administration has instead proven–again and again–what a hard working, consistent, and extremely effective governor she was.

A huge opening for Sarah Palin

Posted by Roderic Deane on September 9, 2011

The debate at the Reagan Library the other night was very telling. With one exception (thanks Newt!) the on-stage candidates dutifully responded to a host of biased and leading questions from the likes of NBC’s Brian Williams and the guy from Politico (I forget his name and don’t want to invest energy in looking it up).

Although the debate was hosted by the Reagan Library and staged with the tacit approval of Reagan’s presumed political heirs, it was flawed. Why would the Reagan Library allow two left-leaning news organizations to taint Ronald Reagan’s legacy by providing them with sponsorship for the event? I would rather see the GOP candidates stand on hay bales in rural America and have questions posed by community newspapers! The underlying agenda of NBC and Politico was obvious and absurd! We could learn more about policy positions and personalities if the debate candidates were provided an honest, no-nonsense forum to articulate their positions, without the under-handed agenda of the mainstream media.

In a word, the Reagan Library debate was a farce. It was obvious from the start that Perry and Romney were targeted by the moderators. In addition, I felt that other candidates were given short shrift in their ability to talk about their positions and beliefs. Of course, the exceptions were Ron Paul and John Huntsman, but I digress.

There is a massive effort by the mainstream media to run to the forefront and “agree” to sponsor a Republican debate. Their motives are now obvious: trivialize the debate and steer the debaters into an internecine war.

Sarah Palin has seen through the farce of these debates. By delaying her announcement as a candidate, she has bolstered her appeal in absentia. Brilliant, but so common-sense! The mainstream media has already signaled their bias, but yet the announced candidates are scrambling to gain the attention of those networks. Why? Why?

Sarah Palin is well-served by waiting until the end of September or even the middle of October to declare her candidacy. By then, the internecine war amongst the GOP candidates will be wearing thin on the electorate. The voters will perceive those candidates as “more of the same”. They’ll be looking for something else.

Sarah is playing the media and existing GOP field like a fiddle in the Charlie Daniels Band. She’s just waiting to jump up on a hickory stump and fiddle for the gold. Man, do I ever want to be there for THAT event!

My observations of Sarah’s weekend speeches

Posted by Roderic Deane on September 5, 2011

While listening to Sarah Palin’s New Hampshire speech, something dawned on me. We are starting to see GOP candidates attack their opponents on a variety of topics. This is to be expected in an contested primary. How will this play out if Sarah gets into the race?

As an example, Mitt Romney has decided to attack Rick Perry as a “career politician”. Rick Perry turned around and suggested to listeners in South Carolina that Mitt Romney has no record of job creation. Meanwhile, Michelle Bachmann’s PAC has published a video that goes after Perry on his spending record in Texas. Ron Paul had already gone after all three of the above in a campaign ad several weeks ago.

So, let me get this straight. Romney attacks Perry as a career politician. Perry attacks Romney for dismal job growth. Bachmann attacks Perry on his spending record and Ron Paul attacks all of the above for, well, all of the above and then some.

In the meantime, Sarah Palin keeps talking about reform and offers solutions to end crony-capitalism. Not surprisingly, Sarah’s record of governance involves standing up against crony-capitalism, dramatically cutting spending, adding jobs at a much faster rate than Texas and being one of the most ethical administrations in Alaskan history.

Gee, I wonder what the GOP attacks will say about Sarah? Oh, she quit her job? Hmmm, she’s got a better record in 2.5 years than Perry in 10. She also reformed government entitlements, forward-funding retirement programs to allow budgetary control of that spending. Mitt Romney? Not so much, giving his state the template for Obamacare. Michelle Bachmann? Remind me again what Michelle Bachmann’s executive experience is outside of her job as a “tax attorney”? …..still waiting…..yawn…..(crickets).

Nope, it seems to me that Sarah Palin will be a difficult target to hit…unless you’re willing to “make things up!”

NRO reveals their bias

Posted by Roderic Deane on September 2, 2011

Although it may be coincidental, it seems odd to me that National Review Online would post this poll on the eve of Sarah Palin’s speech at the Iowa Tea Party event:

NRO POLL
Who is the better conservative standard-bearer?

Palin 38 %

Perry 62 %

9,581 votes

I’m not suggesting that it’s not a legitimate question, I only question the timing. After all, THOUSANDS of Sarah Palin supporters and activists are on their way to Indianola, IA at this very moment. I doubt if their travel is going to put this poll in front of them as it normally would. I think the timing of this post reveals an NRO bias towards Rick Perry. What do you think?

In times of trouble…

Posted by Roderic Deane on August 28, 2011

First off, let me tell you that I’ve been a resident of Texas since 1995. That may not seem like a lot of time, but as the saying goes: “I may not have been born in Texas, but I got here as soon as I could”. My son was raised here, having been only 2 years-old when we moved. He doesn’t remember Indiana but claims to remember certain events from that period. They have always been events from here in Texas.

The gubernatorial landscape has not changed much since I moved here. George Bush was the new Governor upon my arrival and when he ran for President in 2000, after just having been re-elected to a 2nd term, Rick Perry took over. I’ve watched the ensuing style of governance ever since and it has been disquieting, to say the very least.

Mark America has written a great piece that was posted on Conservatives4Palin and I encourage you all to read it. I’m already on record as not supporting a Perry presidency.

Mark does a great job of highlighting some of the troublesome tendencies of Rick Perry and cautions all to take pause and re-consider your enthusiasm for Perry’s presidential bid. To add to Mark America’s cautioning, we CAN do better.

Rick Perry may be a great alternative to the present occupant of the White House, but I question his ability to effect major change. Our government is on the road to ruin and I just don’t think that Rick Perry has exhibited the kind of tendency that will reverse our present course. I’m not alone with my assessment. My siblings in Indiana and other parts of the Midwest are equally skeptical. My mother, a staunch Republican and octogenarian conservative is equally concerned. They all tell me that something just doesn’t feel right about a Rick Perry presidency.

Perhaps their reticence is born out of my tendency to promote Sarah Palin at every turn when speaking with them. Perhaps they see things that I cannot as a resident of Texas who is steeped in the daily news that champions Rick Perry’s accomplishments. I think there’s something more going on.

People across our great nation are looking for a renaissance in the principles of our founding. The vast majority of our aging population is not seeing anyone speak and act in a way that reminds us of those principles. At least, not yet.

Sarah Palin embodies all that we can believe in. Her record in Alaska is one of a true reformer that is willing to take on the establishment in defense of our liberties. She does not carry the odor of one who supports crony-capitalism but instead provide a breath of fresh air that can galvanize the voters’ resolve. She not only talks the walk, but has walked the cause throughout her tenure in government. If there is anyone out there that speaks the same language as the Tea Party patriots, I have not yet heard from them.

I can’t travel to Iowa for Sarah Palin’s speech to the Iowa Tea Party next weekend, but I will be there in spirit. I will be looking for her to voice my own opinions and those of every patriotic conservative when she takes to the dais. I suspect that this speech will be the harbinger of a presidential run, much the same as Ronald Reagan’s “A Time for Choosing” speech in 1964. No one expected that speech to become the hallmark of Ronald Reagan’s career, but it did and we are all better for it.

In times of trouble, you don’t look for a slick politician that tells you what you want to hear. You look for a politician that has a demonstrated conviction in your beliefs and you then elevate him (or her) to the vanguard of your political party. It’s happened before with Reagan and it can happen again.
