Tucker Carlson: "I´m Not Clear
What Sarah Palin Does"

Real Clear Politics, by Ian Schwartz

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 3/20/2013 8:36:39 AM

BRIAN WILSON, HOST: As a part of all of this, you have this spat between Karl Rove and Sarah Palin. Is that helpful or does it just make us look like a bunch of goofballs who are divided? TUCKER CARLSON: No, it´s kind of hilarious, I guess. But no, it certainly doesn´t get anyone elected. I think Sarah Palin is, you know, a great speaker, but I´m not clear what Sarah Palin does. ### CARLSON: But I will say that Rove´s comeback, that one-liner is indisputably true. She was the governor of a state and she decided not to finish her turn.

Comments:
One more vote for Rove.

It´s getting tiresome to hear supposedly in the know pundits and political operatives who profess not to know why Sarah Palin quit her job as governor, and want to denigrate her for it. That includes Tucker Carlson and Karl Rove.

Has Tucker forgotten why Palin resigned as governor or is he on the trash Palin bandwagon that Karl Rove seems to always be driving?

The pundits have heard Palin´s reasons for quitting. They just don´t find them credible. I don´t either. It was certainly her right to leave her post for whatever reason she chose, but she seems to have destroyed her options for a higher office.

SARAH PALIN deserves respect for her accomplishments as a mayor, an authority on Alaskan oil and governor of her State. She is a phenomenal speaker, a patriot, a lover of the Constitution , etc. This she accomplished before the leftist politicians, the left wing media and the weak kneed Republicans decided to knee cap her. There were wonderful speeches at CPAC, Ted Cruz, Pat Caddelll, Ben Carson and many more, but Sarah Palin was a standout to those without ´brain distortion´ due to the aforementioned groups. When you make a characature out of someone, people do not want to be associated with praise for the characature, lest they be the next one to be characatured. Her speech delivered truth with humor and verve. Viva Sarah!

Things have to move beyond Sarah Palin and the turdblossom.

Karl Rove certainly comes nowhere near speaking for me, as I consider him to be without principle, ethics, or a conscience. He is a huckster, in every sense of the word.

But Sarah Palin does not speak for me either, maiinly because I see her as an attention-grabbing, rural Kardashian-type who stands for nothing, but has a ton of people who idolize her for their own reasons.

Bottom line is, tbere is no thing, and no BODY in the republican party that impresses me in the slightest.

No need to take sides. Rove is a Bush company man who has sees his future in the continuation of establishment power (Jeb) over conservative principals. Sarah is a beautiful woman that a desperate McCain chose in a Hail Mary to squeek the election through conservative voters. She is the victim of her own followers who fell in love and won´t let go - unable to admit her limitations. (She envisions herself a player - so much that she stupidly quit on Alaska and thought she could still go to the White House) Let´s ignore both of them.

I like Sarah Palin. She is threat because she isn´t part of the "accepted" speakers for the Washington Rep. Party. She talks about the things many Americans think about, things that are talked about but never seem to register with the reps in Washington.

She has common sense. She calls them as she sees it. And one of the most impressive things, she can answer a question with one word! She is more accomplished than Obama and his wife.

#4, #16, Palin incurred over $500,000 in legal bills having to defend herself from frivolous ethics charges. Do you think she should have stayed as governor and incurred another $500k in legal bills? A "yes" would mean that you are not credible.

Well, Mr. Carlson, Sarah Palin can point to a number of significant achievements on her resume. And you? What, beyond ink and pixels, have you produced? As for Mr. Rove, his batting average on winning elections (his supposed expertise) is one of the worst in politics.

We need Mr. Smith to once again go to Washington.

"I would not be in the U.S. Senate today if it were not for Governor Palin," Cruz said in gratitude.
Cruz said Palin, like him, drives the mainstream media "bat-crap crazy" because she is "fearless," "principled," and "courageous" while the mainstream media wants conservatives to "shut up and accept defeat and be timid."
Cruz also simply said, "Sarah Palin picks winners," in reference to Palin´s early support of candidates like Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Rand Paul (R-KY), Pat Toomey (R-PA), and governors like Nikki Haley (SC) and Susana Martinez (NM), and former Rep. Tim Scott (R-SC), who is now the state´s senator.

#17, and the state had similar legal bills that suddenly disappeared after she resigned.

She did the right thing for her state, and her family.

Are other Republicans doing the same, or are they simply trying to garner some crumb from the liberal Democrat establishment to get-along?

Sarah is damaged goods because of a corrupt media combined with a lot of really ignorant close-minded Americans. The RNC and their supporters contribute greatly to the financial well-being of the corrupt media by going on their stupid shows, participating in democrat run debates, and advertising their businesses in the same media that wishes their extinction. Opening their mouths before their brains are engaged helps reinforce the dem talking points that we are a bunch of dumbasses out of touch with the "masses". Do you think dems do anything but laugh at the hapless boehner making kissy-face with our arch-enemy? He and his McCain/Graham look-a-likes do one thing well. Play the fool.

#17 -- While I understand why she did it. I still think she should´ve stuck it out. She was incurring the legal fees, but in today´s world, she would´ve been able to pay those off as soon as she left office given the books, speeches, etc. I wanted her to remain a REAL player, a real example of conservative leadership. She stunted her own growth and track record in that arena.

But this is what the Democrats and their allies in the media do best...if they can´t defeat someone in an election, they go after that person in a personal way to make it almost unbearable for them to serve. How do you think Barack Obama got elected to the Senate in the first place?

Sadly, for Palin, and those of us who really wanted her to succeed, she is no more than a talking head, JUST LIKE ROVE. They may differ in opinion, but they are basically serving the same function.

Sarah Palin´s main function appears to be keeping Republicans on defense. Last week is a perfect example. Jeb Bush, probably the most electable politician in the party at the Presidential level got completely washed out of the coverage by Sarah Palin´s soda snub and jokes about her rack. She´s overexposed.

If the Republicans look to Rove to manage and consult their candidates, they will never win another election. Rove is devoid of principals and beyond the smallest tactical sense, has no ability to formulate an over all theme for a Presidential campaign. So THAT´S what Sarah has become: the replacement for, and the antidote to Carl Rove. It´s no longer the Goldwater Republicans versus the Rockefeller Republicans; it´s the Rove Republicans versus the Palin Republicans.

I might be a bit more sympathetic to Palin´s claim that she resigned the governorship in July 2009 because of financial hardship if I didn´t know for an easily verifiable fact that she´d signed a multimillion dollar book contract in May 2009 for her memoir. Half the money was paid to her upon signing the contract, according to her agent for the deal, Robert Barnett. (That is, in fact, the standard procedure.) So she had at a minimum of 4 million--probably closer to 6--in the bank when she was pleading poverty.

But you can go to www.sarahpalinlegaldefensefund.org and make a donation to help with her past, present, and future legal bills, if you like.

Sarah Palin seems like a rather ordinary middle class American wife and mother. She does not strike me as excessively intelligent nor especially educated, categories in which few politicians are known to excel. Her values, as far as I understand them, are conventional, traditional, and except on the radical Left, uncontroversial. She is a patriot, a believer in individual ability and responsibility, and a skeptic of the promises and plans of big government bureaucrats and politicians. I really don´t find anything particularly unusual or remarkable about her.

Except, of course, for one very important thing: she regularly evokes a violent allergic reaction compound of fear, loathing, rage and downright insanity on the Left. People whose politics and values and behavior I detest the most -radical Leftists and clueless bourgeois useful idiots- are scared to death of her.

That´s enough for me. I don´t begin to understand it - but if she evokes such incredible dread and detestation from the Left, she has got something America needs and needs urgently. So I am for Sarah Palin, not so much because of who or what she is or what she says or does -though nothing I have heard is exceptionable- but because of the enemies she provokes.

Palin ain´t what ails us. The problem is with the people who consistently refuse to acknowledge the truth of her message and her approach. The establishment consultant political class, feeding at the trough of donated money, recognizes their private entitlement program dries up the minute the populist conservative base finally figures out
who they are and how little they stand for. That day almost came in 2008, but the Wallaces and her third string political operatives chose to sandbag their candidate, an effort that continues to this day, right her in this salon. Their influence wanes on a daily basis, with every new antiPalin post.

As for Tucker Carlson, a cartoon conservative created to present an illusion of balance for cable news outlets. Pays well.

# 4,9,11,16,23 (only in your mind)25 & 26,28,32 (OMG),27, - Big EGO was not a personality trait of Gov. Palin--that was proven in the nearly 40,000K emails which proved her quality of governing.
A family of 6 earning around $250K in a high cost of living state with personal legal bills for abouut 2/3´s of the frivolous ethics complaints (one signed by Mickey Mouse) running at about $500,000 and the Governor was responsible for her legal fees (now changed). Why would anyone let their EGO bankrupt her family and put them on proverty row.
Gov. Palen´s agenda had already been fulfilled in her tenure and the idiots who filed the complaints were already receiving monies she acquired for the state and them, but yet they filed whatever complaints they could. The complainers did not care if gov´t activity was halted or finances were used for their recklessness costing the state millions too. Gov. Palin wasn´t the only one in that administration who was being saddled with legal fees personally, others were too.
The same group of haters will never see the light of day, nor do they want too. More Romney´s (losers)??????

Have Rove and Carlson forgotten that GW Bush did NOT complete his term as Gov. in order to run for President?
The State of Alaska was paying much of the legal fees to defend their Governor (Palin) and she could not with good conscience continue in office while the many frivilous law suits piled up.
democrats did what they do best, use the courts,and dirty tricks, because they saw that Palin was an effective, Republican politician who connected with the People and so, had to be destroyed.
I am puzzled as to why WE as conservatives allowed it to happen.

I understand her reasons for quitting as governor. As an alternative, I guess that I don´t understand why she didn´t set up a legal defense fund to accept contributions to defray the defense costs for the frivolous lawsuits. By that time she was nationally known and very popular and I think this could have worked.

For #41 and others...

Sarah Palin was the first female and youngest governor ever elected in Alaskan history.
Alaska is tied for the second most powerful governorship in the United States.
Governor Palin’s approval rating average from the time of her inauguration until John McCain selected her to serve as the vice presidential candidate in 2008, was 77.38%
Cut state spending between 2007 and 2010 by 9.5%.
Reduced federal earmark requests by more than 80%:
Invested $5 billion in state savings, overhauled education funding, and implemented the Senior Benefits Program to provide support for low-income older Alaskans.
Stopped the “Bridge to Nowhere” and wanted to redirect the federal funds to Minnesota after the bridge collapse in 2007.
Rejected much of President Obama’s “stimulus money” in 2009.
Proposed a $2.6 billion investment in the Education Fund to help fund public education for the future.

And a few more, but far from complete...

Helped the state to put $12 billion into savings.
AGIA (Alaska Gasline Inducement Act) — After many decades of unsuccessful attempts to bring a gas pipeline project into existence, Governor Palin and her team introduced to Alaskans the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act (AGIA) in March 2007. AGIA passed the Legislature by a vote of 57-1 in May 2007. The framework for America’s largest private sector infrastructure project—a natural gas pipeline—was signed into law by Governor Palin on June 6, 2007. In August 2008, the Alaska Legislature authorized the Palin Administration to award the AGIA license to TransCanada Alaska. In June 2009, Exxon Mobil signed an agreement with TransCanada to partner on the project.

Indeed #57 is spot on, it was Tucker Carlson´s father who did the things #37 credited him with having accomplished. "He is the elder son of Richard Warner Carlson, a former Los Angeles news anchor and U.S. ambassador to the Seychelles who was president of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and director of Voice of America."

Agree w/ #41. Sarah has an ordinary education. It is a gift of our brilliant and well-educated founding fathers that we have such a well-crafted constitution, one that ordinary citizens can understand and follow. Sarah´s drawing power is that she wants to follow the constitution. The ones with the fancy expensive education are the ones who can´t seem to grasp the constitution in its simplicity. Or they are so egotistical, like our current president, that they think they are so smart that they have a better idea, that the constitution is seriously flawed, and the country needs "fundamental change." I´ll take Sarah Palin over all the Harvard and Ivy League lawyers in The White House and the Congress, with the exception of Ted Cruz.

Why even respond to this? Tucker and his bowtie are just another set of inside the beltway establishment lackies. They will parrott whatever the turdblossom tells them to to keep the access open along with grant money and donations flowing to fund their little journalistic ventures. Its how they get to bury their snouts in the D.C. trough as well. Of course they are going to attack anyone who threatens to tear them away from the political teat. Its the same reason why the same little cabal of Establishment cheerleaders get ban together in attacking those who refused to worship at the Republican Party altar. Common sense will lead one to conclude they or people close to them are binging at the government buffet. Instead of debating them, we should just be pointing at them and laughing.

AMSTERDAM -- Charlotte van den Berg was a 20-year-old college student working part-time in Amsterdam´s city archives when she and other interns came across a shocking find: letters from Jewish Holocaust survivors complaining that the city was forcing them to pay back taxes and late payment fines on property seized after they were deported to Nazi death camps. How, the survivors asked, could they be on the hook for taxes due while Hitler´s regime was trying to exterminate them? A typical response was: "The base fees and the fines for late payment must be satisfied, regardless of whether a third party,

MOKPO, South Korea -- A prosecutor says that the third mate steering a South Korean ferry at the time of a major accident was navigating those waters for the first time. Senior prosecutor Yang Jung-jin told reporters that the 25-year-old mate was steering the ship as it passed through an area with lots of islands clustered close together and fast currents. The ferry sank Wednesday. More than 270 people are still missing. Yang says that another mate usually took controls through the area. But because heavy fog caused a departure delay, the third mate was steering the ship through the waters. Yang says

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Shortly after the Supreme Court’s decision on Obamacare, the CBO projected that 9 million people would buy Obamacare-compliant insurance through newly established government-run exchanges. Now, after an enrollment period that his administration expanded by about two months—to more than half a year—President Obama says that 8 million people have “signed up” for (but in many cases haven’t actually bought) insurance through those exchanges. The Obama administration’s stated goal was to have 39 percent of those who bought such insurance be between the ages of 18 and 34. Now Obama says the actual percentage is 28 percent. Only in Washington, D.C. could someone

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

House Democrats, battered by Koch brothers ads and facing a grim outlook for the midterms, are providing the clearest indication yet of how they plan to respond: By shoring up imperiled incumbents and only the most promising challengers, but most likely leaving some of the party’s upstart hopefuls to fend for themselves. The strategy, detailed in nearly two dozen interviews with party officials and strategists, is a tacit acknowledgement of the ominous political environment Democrats are up against this year. The goal is to stop Republicans from padding their 17-seat edge and keep the party within striking distance of the majority

Washington – The National Republican Senatorial Committee, a group tasked with getting Republicans elected to the Senate, believes Republicans have expanded the 2014 playing field with five more contested races as the GOP seeks to retake control of the chamber. In a memo released to consultants Friday morning, NRSC political director Ward Baker writes that Republicans have become competitive in Colorado, New Hampshire, Virginia, Oregon and Minnesota since the start of the year. That´s in addition to nearly 10 Senate seats the NRSC has been aggressively targeting.

The captain of a South Korean ferry that sank off the southwest coast of South Korea this week with hundreds of high school students aboard was arrested early Saturday along with two crewmembers, the Yonhap news agency reports. The captain, 68-year-old Lee Joon-seok, was jailed on five counts of charges including negligence of duty and violation of maritime law, Yonhap reports. The exact charges filed against the two crewmembers, who were allegedly operating the ship alone at the time of the accident, were not immediately available. Prosecutors, in seeking an arrest warrant on Friday, alleged that Lee had left the vessel in charge

It is a bit bigger and somewhat colder, but a planet circling a star 500 light-years away is otherwise the closest match of our home world discovered so far, astronomers announced on Thursday. The planet, known as Kepler 186f, named after NASA’s Kepler planet-finding mission, which detected it, has a diameter of 8,700 miles, 10 percent wider than Earth, and its orbit lies within the “Goldilocks zone” of its star, Kepler 186 — not too hot, not too cold, where temperatures could allow for liquid water to flow at the surface, making it potentially hospitable for life. “Kepler 186f is

Former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards returned to the courtroom in North Carolina this week. Edwards, before entering politics as a senator from North Carolina, shot to prominence as a personal injury lawyer in the state and restarted his practice late last year. In his first case back in the courtroom, Edwards is part of a legal team representing a 4-year-old in a medical malpractice case. The Virginia boy was three months old during a hospital visit in 2009 and “the hospital is accused of failing to ensure the baby received adequate oxygen, resulting in a brain injury,” according to

The VA hospital that slapped a $525 federal fine on a man after he refilled his 89-cent drink without paying has backed down, choosing to issue a warning instead of a citation, a spokesperson for the facility said Thursday. Christopher T. Lewis, of North Charleston, was issued the $525 citation on Wednesday after he ignored signage indicating that there’s no such thing as a free lunch — or complimentary drink refills — at the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center in Charleston. Lewis, who is not a federal employee, told responding officers he had done the same thing “multiple times” before

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery."

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship."

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures.

Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
