Hey GOP, take the Palin cure
Los Angeles Times, by Charlotte Allen

Original Article

Posted By:Vastrightwingconspirator, 11/17/2012 4:12:53 PM

The Republican Party has been doing a lot of hand-wringing and finger-pointing since the presidential election. Half the conservative columnists and bloggers say the GOP lost because it overemphasized social issues such as abortion and gay marriage. The other half says the party didn´t emphasize them enough. And everyone denounces Project ORCA, the campaign´s attempt to turn out voters via technology. But I´ve got a suggestion for cutting short the GOP angst: Sarah Palin for president in 2016. You think I´m joking? Think again. In 2008, Palin, running as my party´s vice presidential

Three million fewer people voted for Romney than McCain. The liberal RINOs and the rest of the liberals have been selling the lie that McCain lost because of Sarah.

Romney and the weak-stick RINOs made a huge blunder by not allowing Sarah to speak at the convention.

No. Just no.

I, too, only got interested in 2008 when she was selected, but it is time to stop the gimmicks and get serious about marketing what we believe makes America great to an electorate never taught it.

It can be done. I´m old enough to remember Atwater and Reagan doing it.

"A national exit poll conducted by CNN asked voters whether Palin was a factor in their voting. Of those who said yes, 56% voted for McCain versus 43% for Barack Obama."

I thought it was gonna say: "56% voted for Sarah versus 43% for McCain"...

Romney eventually won my vote; he seems to be a decent man. However, I didn´t send much money and didn´t volunteer my time. Sorry, I simply had no response to him like I did with Sarah Barracuda.

No no a thousand times no! Mrs. Palin is nice lady, but clearly hasn´t the intelligence or experience for the presidency. Enough with this cult of personality! It´s ruining our country. We don´t need a conservative version of Our Dear Leader.

#8 Sorry could not agree more. Intelligence who is getting elected because they are intelligent? Sarah at least believes in America and she is not part of the Establishment. It probably doesn´t matter with the media the courts and Obama rigging the system we have probably had our last election that isn´t like the ones held in the old Soviet Union.

Sarah Palin is the new Ronald Reagan: charming and affable and unwilling to back down if she´s right. I can´t see what´s wrong with that.

I voted for Sarah Palin in spite of the fact she was on the ticket with that low-life self-serving, I-was-a-POW, John McCain. I was hoping for one of those "I need to spend more time with my family" health crisis to happen early in McCain´s administration.

I have had it up to here with wishy-washy, milque-toast, moderate, I´ll-give-away-the-farm Republican weenies.

I would hope that the Sarah Palins and the Tea Partiers form a new party...Constitutionists...soon and they would take the next election---if 0bama hasn´t declared himself dictator-for-life and cancelled all future elections.

Divided we fall. The single admirable thing the Demos know how to do is stay UNITED on the public front. Their policy disagreements are always kept behind closed doors.
How could we ask anyone to vote with us, when we don´t even know what we stand for?
Don´t you wonder why the LATimes is dangling Sarah out there for the GOP right now? Some of you whine and moan about the media and then take their bait as soon as it´s offered up. The Demos smell blood and want us to destroy ourselves.
I was a mega Sarah supporter, but got fed up quickly with her over-the-top coyness re: this election. She wanted to drag out the primaries as long as possible, and I wonder *why* . Is it possible that Sarah is in it ONLY for *Sarah*--- and she would rather have this country face 4 more years of BHO than give Mitt her support?

Thank you for a Sarah article. I have missed them.
Sadly, it will never work. She has integrity, intellect, intuition and vision. She cannot be bought, rented or bullied. The republican establishment will never stand for that. As a matter of fact, they didnt.
Funny how a Saturday Night Live characterization, wrong at the time, still hangs on. Too bad they didnt go after the Kenyan with such vigor.

It´s become painfully obvious that there are two types of posters here. Those that are truly conservative, and those that whose foremost intent is to promote the Republican brand.

I´ve made the decision to disengage from political obsession and the stress that accompanies it. I´ll continue to vote against the creeping communism in this country, but I´ll no longer support weak sauce candidates who won´t take a stand for what´s right. Election fraud is rampant, and neither party seems to want to fix it. Once the illegals are granted citizenship that, combined with the Marxist takeover of education and the media as well as the future takeover of the Supreme Court, will seal the fate of conservatism in this nation. Hopefully the 20 or so years of life I have left will end before that occurs.

Ronald Reagan was the last unashamedly conservative candidate to run, and he achieved two landslide victories. Since then, the elites in the Republican party have pushed it ever further to the left in each successive election, still falling short. Until there is a fracturing off of a truly conservative party, we will always have a leftist at the helm and the Marxists will have won.

The reason I would vote for Sarah is that I trust her on the issues. That is the most important requirement. As far as intellect and experience, she had more of both than did the Democrat candidate in 2008. And he hasn´t gotten any better.

#12, Palin supported Romney with $5,000 to his campaign. She was roundly and sarcastically maligned for it here, btw. So, it appears she´s damned if she does, and damned if she doesn´t in the minds of some.

The people who trashed Sarah Palin are the same people running this country. The Establishment. The Harvard/Princeton elites who think that the crease in a man´s pants indicates if he´ll be a good leader. The Eastablishment all talk to each other have driven this country into the ground. The all go on Morning Joe and derisively snicker every time her name comes up. At least she´s not one of them.

She made her own way in this world, and went to a (gasp) state school. I´m even more impressed with her b/ c she didn´t go to an elite school. I fear that the axis of evil in DC/NY has ruined her chances, but I would sure like to try somebody fresh and new, not one of them.

Re: #8

I disagree with the assertion that Sarah doesn´t have the intelligence or experience to serve as president.

Especially in light of the fact that Obama, who had much less experience and is demonstrably less intelligent, has been elected twice.

Sarah qualifies for the job in her own right, but if Obama is the new standard that sets the bar pretty low for others who may seek the presidency.

Honestly look at her record while Governor.
She didn´t allow anyone to push her around, democrat or Republican.
She put Alaska first and they were the winners. She sure understands the OIL industry.

As illustrated by above posters, the GOP is split on this. Sarah simply will not play ball with the party Establishment.

If you want someone like Sarah, Allen West, or even Marco Rubio, your only option is to form a new party. That´s my choice. Tough in the short run, workable in the long run. We must rid ourselves of the global corporatists, Wall Streeters, and country clubbers and the ´party of the rich´ albatross that goes with them. They control the GOP; we need a party of our own.

I am tired of people talking about Palin and intelligence. Are you trying to tell me BO is smart? Not at all. Just evil.

Romney? In the debates? Sorry. It was just that BO was so dumb that it made Romney look smart. I am so tired of the DC and media establishment trotting out their latest lackeys and telling us they are smart.

And another thing: wrongheadedness with intelligence is worse than lackluster intellect. That´s what we have for a political establishment right now.

Proof? Who is worrying about the guy they put in jail for Barack´s video? Who among our elite has noticed that Hillary put a man in jail to buttress a campaign slogan that Al Qaeda is dead?

Where is Bobbie Jindal, Romney, Cantor, or the rest of those lackluster morons on the constitutionality of leaving that Bassiley guy in prison now that the Democrats are admitting they lied about him?

One word for them all: morons.

I love Sarah but believe there are 2 problems:

1. Core demographics are moving against the R´s. Romney was right about the 47% (although his percentages were off somewhat)

2. Voting fraud is epidemic. Blame W on this. He had 8 years to do something and he knew that something needed to be done but he did nothing. Even given #1, the R´s should have been able to win the next 2 national elections had election fraud been curtailed.

3. R´s eat their own if there isn´t perfect agreement on every issue. Too many will sit at home, not vote and pout because the Republican candidate doesn´t have the same exact stance they demand. Then we have the media that is only too happy to continue to harp on that stance.

I am 68 and I have told friends I will never vote again because not a single contested race I voted in produced a winner. I feel my idea of who should lead my state and country is no longer who the majority of voters think should. Having said that, I would come out of political retirement and vote for Sarah Palin.

Sarah was set to run for 2012 - you only have to read her Indianola speech on Sept 3rd, 2011, to see that she had a platform and was ready to run a populist campaign.

http://www.sarahpac.com/posts/governor-palins-speech-at-the-restoring-america-tea-party-of-america-rally-in-indianola-iowa-video-and-transcript

For whatever reason, and I think it was likely strong GOP establishment opposition, she didn´t pull the trigger. So, she endorsed down-ticket and stayed out of the lime-light while the GOP establishment "electable" candidate lost, again. Running as Democrat-lite DOES NOT work.

Romney did not deliver the ground game, despite late-breaking Tea Party support. The Orca disaster cast severe doubts on his much vaulted executive skills.

Read this, and weep:

Has anyone suggested that if Orca had worked that we´d have won? The rats have got cheating down to a science and they´re so entrenched in the system that they´re next to impossible to dislodge. Add to that our circular firing squad. 3m people stayed home?? I hope they have a guilty conscience every day of the next 4 years.

W did contribute to current problems with his lack of action regarding cleaning up the system. Plus he left us bare since he didn´t have a VP who could take over.

Sarah - I love her and if she runs I´ll vote for her. She is the epitome of what made us into a great country. Maybe the next 4 years will be bad enough that people will realize that we need her and her ideas. My fear is that the corrupt who run D.C., Republicans included, didn´t want her messing with their gravy trains and that is the reason the RNC shut her down. And now the same loser doofus wants to be chairman of the RNC again? They don´t call us the stupid party for nothing.

I will always love Sarah Palin and her family. Were she the nominee for POTUS, I´d be all-in for her. I think she is more than smart enough to be president. Compared to Obama--ivy league degrees and all--she´s WAY smarter. She knows all about small business. She knows what it means to live on a budget. She knows that a strong America means a peaceful world.

In this case, Palin and principle before party--and I am considered a "hard R" by the GOP. I´ve never voted Democrat in my life in a partisan election and I vote every election.

God bless Mrs. Palin. I know she will seek to do what God leads her to do. I trust her--would crawl on hands and knees over broken glass to cast my vote for her.

So far, Sarah´s time in the spotlight has been similar to...Churchill´s. Laughed at, derided, scolded by the know-alls and dumped.

bac then, when all else was lost to the incompetent Gods of appeasement, when all the trendy left dimwits had done their worst and it was past the eleventh hour, Churchill reappeared as the only effective weapon the Brits had.

Do we, like the 1930s Brits, have to throw everything away, to descend below the level of our foes before someone like her is allowed to lead...?

Pinch me so I’ll know I’m not dreaming!

A non-hit piece about as non as non can be about Sarah Palin, and in the L.A. Times, no less. Charlotte Allen, where’ve you been all my life? Kudos to you for this exceptionally savvy, most refreshingly candid column! (If Bravo becomes Brava for females, likewise why doesn’t Kudo become Kuda? But, I digress.)

Sarah Palin has weathered probably a record-setting ammo dump of slings, arrows and so much more in the way of cheap, flimsy, gratuitous criticism for well over four years. She’s withstood it all with a well-earned measure of depth, far-reaching life experience, self-confidence, grace and good-natured humor. She’s the real deal, possessing all the right stuff necessary to be a strong, qualified, dedicated American President. Ronald Reagan in heels or a dress? Not quite. But, pretty darn close.

#26, I share your feelings, but there is no "Tea Party". There are numerous, disjointed, disparate Tea Parties. Add in Libertarian, Constitutional, 10th Amendment, and a few others, and therein lies the problem. Conservatives, we must get our acts together and coalesce.

Sarah wanted the GOP primaries to last longer so the establishment wouldn´t have such a stranglehold on the outcome. She´s a real believer in the power of the republic. She wants the people in charge and conservative ideas to be the agent of real reform. I´ve admired her from the beginning and will continue to.
I don´t see Romney getting the attention, even in defeat, that Sarah still gets.
I still have some hope that all isn´t lost when I factor this in.

Where are all the Romney backers who trashed Palin with a frenzy just like that of the Dems? Oh I see several of them are still hanging around trying to help destroy our country. Pitiful how badly some people want to see our country sink. They would rather have Obama than Palin. It is a sick thing and there is only one cure. Several of the usual Palin haters are missing. Maybe Romney´s defeat has dampened their strident bashing for a while. But they will be back. They will promote some other Rove type candidate to lose in ´16. Is sick sick sick how little some people understand what a true patriot looks like. Or maybe they just hate a woman candidate.

The most vocal and consistent attackers of Palin in this salon were some of the most vocal and ardent, reflexive and aggressive Romney enthusiasts. All ten of ya. You had your opportunity and drove that bus off the cliff. Acknowledge and own it. The professional republican class has no idea what wins, but darned if they are going to relinquish control or admit their own ignorance.

I fear that Sarah´s "brand" has been too damaged by Alinsky-ite tactics by the Democrats and Republican "haters." But she has time now to try to repair the damage. I have some suggestions, which are
superficial, but that I think need to be done. I think Sarah has fallen into the Hillary Clinton trap with changing hairstyles, glasses and clothes. She needs to pick a conservative style--meaning no hairpieces, hair extensions or obvious highlighting, overly casual dress, workout clothes in public, tight tee-shirts, etc. Her looks should not be an issue, other than to see that she is an attractive, but professional-looking, woman. She also needs to rein in her family. If she can´t get them all on board and rowing in the same direction, she should not run. No more reality TV for any of them. And she should start giving more speeches at serious venues on serious subjects, using serious language. She is a very good and very engaging speaker, but her use of phrases like "lamestream media," that we use and like, but are probably off-putting to some. Having said all this, if Sarah runs, I´m in.

Before ya´ll get in a twist about who to run, you must find a way to "true" elections! The democrats will continue to steal them as they just did, this time adding software to machines that kicked out Romney votes, in addition to the tried and true methods. (Like finding votes in a warehouse recently in the West recount in FL) By the way, I´d vote for Sarah in a heart beat

Come on, this article is a spoof. Look at Allen´s list of reasons why Palin should run:

1. Her teenaged daughter got pregnant out of wedlock, so all single moms will flock to her.

2. She has "an impressive gay fanboy" base, one of whom can manage her campaign.

3. She´s a perfect guest for "The View."

4. She´s cuter than Hillary.

5. She appeals to low-information voters who are driven by their emotions.

6. She has a son in the military. So does Biden.

Come on. Spoof.

Sarah Palin hits President
Obama ‘ShamWow’ speech
Politico, by Tal Kopan    Original Article
Posted By: Vastrightwingconspirator- 10/31/2013 2:39:01 PM     Post Reply
Sarah Palin is keeping up the infomercial peddler charge against President Barack Obama, criticizing his “ShamWow” speech in Boston and accusing him of lying to the American people. (Snip) “For starters we anticipated a presidential apology for lying to Americans repeatedly when he promised things like, ‘If you like your current health care plan, you can keep it.’ Make no mistake, he knew he was lying when he said that,” Palin wrote. “Was remorse and sympathy shown for Americans who now can’t afford health insurance thanks to Obamacare? Nope. … Obama didn’t lie to you when he said, ‘if you

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said she would be "disappointed" in the American electorate if Hillary Clinton becomes a serious candidate for president in 2016. The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee argued Clinton would not be right for the role as commander in chief after four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, died last year in a terrorist attack against a U.S. consulate in Benghazi. (Snip) She said "anyone who would just throw away 200 years of military ethos and leave our men behind to be murdered" should "never be considered as a commander in chief."

Obamacare; Cruz Is Over The Target

Americans who are fed up with Obamacare won a victory yesterday. The House voted to defund Obamacare while still funding the federal government to avoid a “devastating” shutdown. (I shall not digress, but it’s beyond distressing to hear liberals try to convince Americans that any government slowdown is comparable to “terrorism.”) (Snip) I want no pity. I need no empathy. But use me as a barometer. Over the years, the leftwing media has falsely and irrationally accused me of everything from faking a pregnancy to abetting murder. They lie. Deal with it.

You did it, Seattle! 12th Man sets

Now we can say it without a doubt: Seattle has the loudest fans in the world. During the Seahawks-49ers game Sunday, the 12th Man broke the Guinness World Record for loudest crowd roar, the record attempt’s organizer said. We have yet to officially confirm the report from former Seahawks player Joe Tafoya, but he tweeted from the field that the record had been broken. Seahawks fans hit 131.9 decibels, according to The Seattle Times, after the Seahawks and 49ers returned to the field from a weather delay. The previous record was 131.76 decibels, set during a 2011 soccer match at

It was an overcast, albeit relatively mild August day by Washington D.C. standards, fifty years ago today, as I joined the thousands walking along Constitution Avenue toward the Lincoln Memorial. Many of those in the crowd who had traveled vast distances by busses and cars from all over the nation, but in particular the deep South, had a look of apprehension bordering on fear, not knowing what to expect from the police and those vehemently opposed to unfettered civil rights. Despite the trepidation and regardless of skin color, nationality or faith all were determined to compel the nation to listen

Sarah Palin joined Eric Bolling on Fox News this morning to take a mini-victory lap over some Democrats suddenly embracing the idea she put forth years ago over health care “death panels.” Palin felt somewhat vindicated, but didn’t want to “condone them… for trying to jump off the Obama train wreck.” She told Bolling that rationing was in the health care law from the beginning, and the Democrats who didn’t notice it until now did not want to look like “buffoons.” (Snip) Palin proudly declared her allegiance to Team Rand, hitting Christie for his “schtick” of “set-up situations”

Back in September of 2008, Sarah Palin spoke at a Colorado Springs rally. During her address, she lamented the all-encompassing power of government sponsored mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. (Snip) She was, of course, pilloried for this. Virtually every mainstream media outlet pounced, accused her of ignorance, and reminded the American people that these were not taxpayer funded entities. Taxpayers simply weren’t a factor.

Sarah Palin: We show what happened, back in 2008, I believe that´s when it started, when the media decided to just go along to get along with Obama, ingratiating themselves with him and vice versa. What we saw was these attempts to destroy these whistleblowers, those who were telling the truth, even in the campaign. (Snip) In the campaign, Greta, this is important for Americans to understand. I was not allowed to talk about things like that because those elitists, those who are the brainiacs in the GOP machine running John McCain´s campaign at the time said that the media

Sarah Palin joined Greta Van Susteren on Friday night to slam President Obama for the comment during his big economic speech that Washington’s too obsessed with “phony scandals.” Palin wanted to know exactly which scandals the president was referring to as “phony,” and held up a “redneck version” of Karl Rove‘s classic white boards to remind viewers of all the scandals currently plaguing Obama, from Benghazi to NSA snooping, asking in disbelief if he’s really dismissing all of them as “phony.”(Snip) She told Van Susteren she was “banned” from talking about Wright and Bill Ayers because the Republican “elitists”

Mark Levin: You know, ladies and gentlemen, I hate to say this, but it´s right in front of our faces. Obviously, John Boehner does not want to get to the bottom of what took place in Benghazi. It´s obvious. He´s been asked over and over again by a majority of the Republicans in the House to set up a special investigative committee as is the tradition in these types of investigations. So you concentrate expertise and resources and time in one special committee rather than multiple committees that are also investigating

South Carolina’s fledgling William Wallace Caucus might suggest a prototype. She might need a council of advisers (“elders”) like John Brown’s Secret Committee of Six, which included Yankee crusader Theodore Parker and the husband of Julia Ward Howe (author of "Battle Hymn of the Republic"). Others to include: obviously her husband, Todd; and Franklin Graham, Christian evangelist; Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback and maybe the venerable Judge Andrew Napolitano. She also needs a major celebratory event (think Woodstock for American revolutionaries) — I’d suggested a Tea Party Congress

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
