Sarah Palin on ANHQ: “This go round, give Romney a chance!”

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 25, 2012

Video retrieved from  

Governor Palin talked to Uma Pemmaraju on FOX’s America’s News Headquarters today about the GOP convention and the Senate and Congressional races.   When asked how it felt to be in the spotlight and chosen as Senator John McCain’s running mate four years ago, she said that she was “honored and humbled” to be asked by McCain, whom she loves and respects, to help carry a pro-Constitutional, conservative message to the country.

Governor Palin said that we need a Congress that will commit to repeal Obamacare, and we need to elect people who are wise,  diligent, and fighters, and who will  undo a lot of what Barack Obama has done to the country.  She said she will sometimes be supporting underdogs to help put them on the map because their message is the right one and so that thir message can be heard.  She said that she will be in  Arizona on Monday working for Kirk Adams, and that she will be working for Jeff Flake and Paul Gosar there as well.

When asked if she thought the Tea Party would continue to play a major role in specific races, Governor Palin said  the Tea Party is a grass roots movement of independent Americans that wants to shrink government, make it smarter, and let the private sector grow and thrive and prosper again in the most exceptional nation in the world through a free market.  She said that the Tea Party will be heard and will be effective, and that she believes that the Tea Party is just getting going.

Asked for her advice to the Romney and Ryan families, Governor Palin said that she thinks that the Ryan children will be inherently protected because of their age, but that Romney’s family needs to “circle the wagons” as a family.

Regarding a third party, Governor Palin said the Republican Party replaced the Whig Party when both parties weren’t doing the will of the people.  She said that if the Republican Party doesn’t remember what its platform planks represent, that she wouldn’t be surprised if history at some point repeats itself

Asked whether she would consider running again for Governor of Alaska, she responded that she would rather work hard at  unlocking Alaska’s vast resources to help secure our nation,  for our solvency and for the sovereignty of our Union, rather than being “holed up in Juneau” again.

One of the viewer questions submitted was whether someone who does not know whether s/he trusts Romney or Obama more should just not vote?  Governor Palin’s response was, “No, no, no!”  She said, “do me a favor” and give Romney a shot this go round.  She said we don’t want to repeat Obama’s failed policies, that it would be insanity to repeat the same failures over and over again.  She said Obama has had his chance, and he just “doesn’t get it” about the free market and American exceptionalism, and he won’t work toward that exceptionalism.   She advised voters who do not know who they dislike more or like more to “this go round,  give Romney a chance!”

Sarah Palin on Solyndra: “Follow the Money.”

Posted by Dr. Fay on July 13, 2012

Governor Palin appeared On the Record with Greta van Susteren last night and discussed a number of topics.

From the rush transcript posted at the On The Record site at FOX News:

VAN SUSTEREN: I’m very well. And so the board game begins, where we all sort of try to guess, and Drudge has it up as, you know, developing. We don’t know who his source is, whether it’s true or not. But your thoughts about the possibility that Condoleezza Rice could top the list?

PALIN: I think that Condoleezza Rice would be a wonderful vice president, and she certainly has much more experience than our sitting president does today.

VAN SUSTEREN: What about the fact that she is, quote, “moderately pro-choice”? I looked it up a little bit to see because I think that Governor Romney has said that he won’t pick anyone who is pro-choice. Her — the quote that’s attributed to her is that she’s “moderately pro- choice.” Assuming that she is even on that list — and I don’t know — but could that ever be reconciled?

PALIN: I would certainly prefer a presidential and vice presidential candidate who had that respect for all innocent, precious purposeful human life and showed that respect via being a pro-life candidate. We need to remember, though, that it’s not the vice president that would legislate abortion, and that would be Congress’s role. And we’ll keep that in mind.

[…]

PALIN: Well, yes, because you journalists, you know, with your very fast-moving news cycles, you’re always looking for something to talk about. So you know, that plays right into that.

But again, Condoleezza Rice is very experienced, especially in foreign policy, having served under President George Bush. And you know, I think her credentials far surpass Barack Obama and Joe Biden’s.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right, well, let’s move on to some other topics. There’s a lot going on in Washington. Another sort of interesting topic is Solyndra and the — and David G. Frantz, who’s the acting executive director of the Department of Energy’s loan program office, has described the loan program to Solyndra and others as, quote, “enormous success.”

What’s he smoking?

PALIN: What is he smoking? I would say, yes, I guess his measure of success could be considered just how quickly can we bankrupt this country using other people’s money, taxpayers’ hard-earned money and borrowed dollars from China to give to Solyndra that goes under and that being considered a success.

This fellow could be a character in George Orwell’s book “1984” — quite Orwellian, his thinking on this. I’d be embarrassed to death if I were his boss. If I were the president, I would certainly try to find a way to apologize for such a ridiculous comment.

[…]

PALIN: As you made the point, though, Greta, as you made the point, it’s not just Solyndra, though. There is a list of these failed, bankrupt, insolvent, uneconomic projects and programs that are the hallmark of the Obama administration. And yet they think that they deserve four more years of the same. That’s insanity!

VAN SUSTEREN: Well, you know, there are some companies that naturally go belly up. You know, you can make bad business decisions.

But the thing that’s so baffling about Solyndra is that before they even agreed to sign — sign over a loan to Solyndra, it was — it was well known that you could buy solar panels cheaper in China than you — than it was — than Solyndra could make them. So just from a — (INAUDIBLE) basic, fundamental business, it was just stupid.

And if you can’t get private venture capital, you know, to throw in a couple dollars, that’s a good sign that nobody wants this deal. So it was…

PALIN: Follow the money. Follow the money. The dots that are connected are to campaign donors of President Obama’s. It’s crony capitalism on steroids, where you see these grants and these loan guarantees end up. It is to his pals.

VAN SUSTEREN: Well, you know, I — look, I — I’d love to see alternative energy. You know, I’d love to get our dependence off foreign oil. But you know, when you make decisions like this, you actually set back alternative energy because now nobody’s got an appetite for it.

When — the American people — how can they possibly have an appetite for it when you see this blunder in the millions of dollars? You know, I think it’s incredible, what has happened to the, you know, alternative energy because of these — you know, they were just — they were stupid decisions.

PALIN: Yes. And when you consider that our conventional sources of energy are still sitting untapped, our known reserves and fields that are so rich are untapped. And yet we’re throwing money left and right at these experimental — some hair-brained snake-oil science-type projects, in some respects, then that really frustrates the American public.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right, the candidate for your — for the Republican — for the president — Republican Party, Governor Romney, went to the convention, NAACP, in Houston yesterday, got booed, in part. He also got – – he got applause at times. Would you have advised him to go there?

PALIN: Oh, heck, yes. I’m so glad that he went there. And he got a standing ovation at the end of the speech, and that was given him by those who paid attention and stayed to the end, if you will, and heard what he had to say.

And what he had to say was how important it is that there is equal opportunity for prosperity and security for all Americans, and you do that by empowering the people, not by growing government.

So yes, a smattering of boos here and there, especially when it came to his commitment to repeal ObamaCare, which is a necessity in order to allow our country to be solvent and allow more health care choices to be provided the people. A smattering of boos for that comment and maybe a couple other comments, but overall, standing ovation, indicative, I think, of a respectful audience who stayed to hear what he had to say.

[…]

PALIN: Well, you know what they’d say if he didn’t show up. They’d say he’s racist and he chose not to speak to this group. You know, that is one paranoid politician, though, who would take such a stretch there and articulate, you know, comments like that that he actually went to the NAACP and made comments about ObamaCare and other things that Mitt Romney firmly believes in to change in order to get the country back on the right track. And from there, she would accuse him of — well, this false accusation.

VAN SUSTEREN: The race in November, the Hispanic vote’s going to be important. And Governor Romney was very strong against certain immigration reforms during the primary. In fact, he said he would — he would veto the Dream Act if he were president, ended up in his office.

How in — how does he possibly — in light of the run-up, the primary race, how does he possibly get Hispanics to have any enthusiasm for him?

PALIN: I believe that Governor Romney will continue to explain his position on legal immigration and how important and valuable that is to our country. Of course, our country was built by hard-working immigrants who, you know, kind of paid their dues, stood in line like everybody else in order to become a citizen. And he supports that because he knows the value of legal immigration and all that it has to offer to this most exceptional nation. He’ll talk more about that.

And I believe that those fair-minded Hispanics and all other Americans will recognize what it is that he is saying, understand what he is saying about equal opportunity and still following the law. And I believe that he can garner that support from Hispanics.

VAN SUSTEREN: What do you make of the food fight that’s going on as – – the recent — today, the deputy campaign manager of President Obama’s campaign, Stephanie Cutter, accused Governor Romney of either being a liar or a felon. I don’t know — I guess it’s better to be a liar than a felon. Nonetheless, both are terrible. He’s calling for an apology tonight.

PALIN: I’m glad that he is forcefully calling for an apology. But Mitt Romney and his campaign people perhaps don’t even know what’s coming, what will be hitting him. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

President Obama and the people whom he is surrounded with and in that campaign, they’re going to be brutal. And they will — they’ll throw these false accusations and they’ll try to ring a bell that you can’t unring again in the public’s perception about who Mitt Romney is, what his record is.

He needs to be prepared, and the campaign can’t hold back in defense of Romney’s record and what it is that he actually believes and stands for. So I’m glad that, in a case like this, he’s demanding an apology. He’s got to take the gloves off, the Romney campaign has got to, in order to effect the change that is needed in this campaign and turn things around for the country. Can’t hold back.

Sarah Palin: Romney has to get through the filter of the lapdog media

Posted by Dr. Fay on July 11, 2012

Video retrieved from .

Governor Palin discussed the latest Romney/Obama poll numbers and  the November election with Hannity last night.   In response to Hannity’s remark that Romney was looking pretty good in the latest polls, she responded:

Well, he is. And the more time that Mitt Romney has to get his message out, the better it is for him. When voters start understanding that middle class families have seen the decimation of their net worth to the tune of 40 percent under Barack Obama and monumental fiscal failures are really the hallmark of this administration, the more time that Mitt Romney has to get those facts out there, the more you will see the polls change.

Noting the larger percentage of Democrats participating in the poll, Hannity asked Governor Palin if she thought the media was purposefully manipulating the poll.  Governor Palin responded:

No question. Absolutely. And that’s par for the course, though, with the — manipulation of the media’s message. And you know, they — like they did four years ago, Sean, they chose their One and they did all that they could to usher him into the White House. We are going to see the same tactics this is go around. And I think voters, though, are wiser, perhaps, this go-around in understanding that the media does manipulate information.

The filter that the media is, is something that a politician, a candidate has to be extremely astute in — kind of decimating that filter and getting through it, so that the public has the correct information.

Hannity said that it seemed that Obama was going to use 3 forms of attack:  a smear campaign, class warfare, and taxes.  He asked Governor Palin if she thought Obama could win the election using class warfare.  She responded:

Well, the more people that he has feeding out of his hands, the better it is for him, of course. And when you consider that 49,  50 percent of Americans are not paying taxes and they are so reliant upon the government for their income and for benefits, that bodes well for the extreme left who wants to grow government and take away people’s freedoms and entrepreneurial spirit and work ethic. That’s what this is all about.

So, the more people who are reliant on Barack Obama and the Democrats, the better it is for them. But no — as President Clinton — shoot, as Barack Obama had even said just a couple of years ago, a few years ago, that increasing taxes at a time of economic woe is the worst thing that you can do. And yet, he’s flip-flopped on that along with so many other issues and now decides that he will increase taxes, allowing the Bush tax extensions to expire. And that’s going to really negatively affect our small businesses, which of course, is the economic backbone of this country.

When asked whether Romney should respond to the smear attacks on his offshore bank accounts, Governor Palin responded:

 You know I think that Governor Romney should vigorously defend his record and the fiscal decisions that he has made as a private citizen and with his private company. But we need to remember and Romney needs to remind the public and the media that his private bank accounts are not the problem — that is not what is causing the economic demise of this country. It is what Barack Obama believes and then makes manifest in our economy with the  monumental failures that kind of replicate the socialist nations that he seems to want to emulate.

Hannity played videoclips of Obama calling the Republican budget a Trojan horse and social Darwinism and  saying that Republicans want dirtier air and water.   Hannity said the remarks wreaked of desperation.  Governor Palin responded:

Well, it does. Consider the source, though, Sean. I mean, read Barack Obama’s autobiographies that he wrote before he accomplished anything, the two books. He made up things in his books and the media, by the way, didn’t vet him and let him get away with it. Composite girlfriends and composite experiences that shaped him. So, you know, it should be no surprise, no wonder that he makes things up today and the lap dogs in the media, they go along with him.

But, you know, as for that accusation of Romney not being transparent enough with his private funds and where he invests his dollars, here is – Debbie Wasserman Schultz is accusing him of not revealing more of his tax records when she’s  never revealed her tax records!

[…]

So, you know, if this isn’t the kettle calling the pot black, or the pot calling the kettle black, then I don’t know what is. And really, if it weren’t so insanely hypocritical, all of this would be laughable.

Hannity asked how the President could make the case that he has made the economy better.

He can make the case just by  making things up, Sean.  But the numbers speak for themselves. And though as they say, the American middle class has seen the decimation of their net worth by 40 per cent.  And you know, I’m glad his campaign and the Beltway pundits have made this election about taxes.  That’s an easy one for fiscal conservatives who understand that “we’re taxed enough already” and that growing government is not the answer to anything.  In fact, growing government is the problem.  Barack Obama is the leader of what the problem is all about, and that is growing government

Asked what her best message for Romney was, Governor Palin said:

He’s already got the right message and that is that the free market works best and the  Constitution is the fine blueprint to get us toward a more perfect Union as opposed to Barack Obama’s idea of growing government and  taking away our freedoms and quashing that entrepreneurial spirit that built America.

So Romney already has the right message.  It’s just a matter now of Governor Romney being very, very courageous and bold and passionate about that message.  Again, he’s got to get through that filter of the media, which is going to be quite difficult, because 90 per cent of the media is so far left that they are serving as a lap dog for Barack Obama.

So Romney – he has said before that he doesn’t want to have to light his hair on fire.  Well, there are a lot of  his  base supporters,  Independents, who are saying, “Well, light our hair on fire, then!  Remind us how important it is that we get engaged in this Presidential election, because it is the election of our lifetime. (emphasis mine)

And we saw in the 2010 electoral victory, and we saw in the Wisconsin recall victory where the right was victorious there, that the base, the Independents, the Tea Party patriots need to be energized and get out to vote.  Otherwise, the right is not going to be able to get in there into the White House and reverse the course that Barack Obama has put us on towards bankruptcy and insolvency.

Mark Vogl: Sarah has my vote

Posted by Dr. Fay on June 7, 2012

In this interesting article at America Today, Mark Vogl expresses some of the frustrations Palinistas are feeling right now.

I am not convinced on Romney even today. Rubio, Christi, etc are NOT proven leaders or conservatives, Sarah is…and Christian!

Romney and his boys think the race is over. But for me, a conservative, I have no reason to vote for Romney except Obama. But Romney is gonna move left, and I won’t follow him. Sure wish there was a third candidate, or a write in effort for Sarah!

Things are so wrong in America. It’s not just Obama Care or trillions in deficit. It is we are going in the wrong direction, and we think of America wrongly. We ARE NOT the leader of the free worldanymore. America First should be the center piece of the GOP platform. We need to set goals of self-sustainment in energy, food, manufacturing, controlling our borders, limiting the UN to a global discussing group.

There is alot that needs to be done, and Romney is just not well rounded enough. not conservative enough, not American enough. Sarah Palin is. She is all we need. She should be our nominee, she should be our President! But if not, then chose her to serve one heart beat away!

[…]

Obama’s abandonment of the Democrat in Wisconsin will help split the Democrats. So the neo conservatives probably figure that helps Romney. But what if there was a third party candidate. What if Sarah ran? I know where I would be. Wonder what polls would say about how many Americans are disastisfied with the current choices. Paul’s fanatics, where will they go if Paul goes back to Texas and sits on his porch?

Some GOP strategists are floating Rubio to try to go after the Latin votes, they are over reaching. They dont have the conservatives! Romney has not won my vote. Sarah has my vote.

There’s alot going on, alot to think about. But for me, I did not vote for George Bush whenPat Buchanan was an alternative. I did not vote for John McCain,even though I wanted tovote for Sarah, did a write in vote. If you think conservatives have to vote for Romney, you don’t understand who conservatives are. Sarah does.

It’s a long way to November. Alot can happen. If you feel you can take conservatives for granted today, well okay, but like I said, November is a long way off.
