Skip to comments.Sarah Palin Is Not Fading Away (video and column)
Posted on 10/07/2009 1:18:50 PM PDT by euram
It's been just shy of a year since the 2008 elections, Barack Obama has been in office for a little over nine months, and what are those on the Left and the Right talking about?
(Excerpt) Read more at weekendpundit.org ...
She’s got my vote.... for anything. Like Congresswoman Michele Bachmman she’s got balls. Unlike other un-named Rinos
I can hardly wait for her book tour to start.
You know this has to really piss off bammy. Some white chick who didn’t even go to Harvard upstages the chimp just by twittering occasionally.
GOP take note.
You have to wonder about media figures who take up half of their air time telling us all that Sarah’s fading into obscurity. About columnists who spend ten column inches an issue telling us that nobody’s interested in reading about her. Clearly there’s a disconnect here so fundamental it’s invisible to our ruling class.
Sarah already is in the fight. What exactly do you want her to do?
An absolutely brilliant video a must see!
Sarah is in the fight and up front.
read her on going pages on facebook on the issues that
others won’t or just skim over.
Also what she addresses in her book.
I don’t like the corruption going on with Obama and one of our congressmen here in San Diego who can do something about it is, Darell Issa for months has been on ACORN, and other areas.
Though Sarah has mentioned these issues she is also on the
issues we need to face this second. Is for supporting the
mission of the Generals who know what is going on and winning and other issues.
Some find it comforting listening to those who rant on about the corruption for ratings and acknowledgment, this way listeners don’t have to hear about the facts we are in
a war for the safety of our country and our lives.
“Clearly theres a disconnect here so fundamental its invisible to our ruling class.”
The great Yogi Berra explaines it all long ago.
“You can observe a lot just by watching.”
I read her pages daily.
My copy of her book is on order and I think SarahPac will see another hit this weekend along with some thing for FR as wel1!!
I was fully behind Duncan Hunter the last election. He was near perfect on policy but lacked supporters so he went nowhere. Sarah Palin, imo, is doing just what she needs to do, build a strong base of support. Sarah’s supporters know pretty much her stand on the issues already. Her policy writings so far have been very timely and have had a positive effect on the debate.
What would you have Sarah do to bolster her chances? Not being argumentative, just curious, I want to know.
I would have her dump her handlers and do what she does best. Fight the corruption and support will follow. I know I’m naive, but I still believe if you do what you know is right good things will follow.
She’s already got a new staff, who helped her prep for Hong Kong, and has signed on with the top-notch Washington Speakers Bureau.
Here ya go. She’s made a few references to ACORN and corruption, the last one as a coda to one of yesterday’s postings: http://www.facebook.com/sarahpalin?v=app_2347471856&viewas=0
Does Sarah have handlers? I don’t think so, if so, who are they? Personally, I think her strategy is one of her own making, totally outside the box and one that has the “elites” totally confounded. I am willing to trust her judgment, she has a successful, winning track record.
As far as the corruption angle, how can she fight the corruption other than point it out? The only ways I see she can do something about it is by helping like-minded conservatives get elected and becoming president. She did it as governor, so again, she has a track record of winning.
She already has more supporters than anyone else being talked about for the nomination.(and growing) Timing is everything, imo.
That's not her job - she is not a prosecutor or an elected official. The best job she's doing right now is fighting Obama on kitchen table issues such as the economy, energy, and the War. Right now, nobody cares about the corruption or the czars because (A) it's not being reported anyway and (B) it doesn't affect people's day-to-day lives. Palin's doing an excellent job doing what she's doing now.
She has pointed out how the Obama administration is sending billions to Brazil to help them drill their own oil. That's one example of highlighting corruption.
Or anything else for that mater. I think she has made maybe two statement in as many months, one on death panels and one on energy.
Dude, she just released TWO Facebook posts yesterday. She released 3 posts, one an op-ed and the others on Facebook, preempting and responding to Zero. She has single-handedly derailed Obamacare back in August. Where the Hell have you been?
Look I support Sarah but it seems she is more interested in cultivating support rather then engaging in policy. Isnt that the trade mark of the current ruling party?
Real supporters of Palin trusts her instincts, that's what makes her so exciting. Again, it is not wise for her to talk about corruption, the birth certificate, and all the other sundry, nefarious Obama issues because that does not relate to the average person.
Sarah Palin has the respect and support of military people -- officers, enlisted, and the families -- far beyond what other politicians get just based on their title.
I maintain she has done that already, her history in government and her speeches during the campaign.
Good point! The respect of military personnel is essential for solid leadership.
She is already in the fight. By posting her feelings on Twitter... and getting coverage... she is stomping 0bama badly
I would say she should tweet a bit more, and start touring the country espousing WHY the conservative agenda will save America and American families. She should stay away from obvious landmines (like saying all abortions should be stopped). Take a page from the liberals... tell people why your way is better and downplay the controversial stuff. When you’re in office, then make the dicsion to deal with such things... AFTER the other stuff is fixed (then people would be more open to the change)
Check out this cartoon:
Now they’re saying that Sarah is stupid.
If it were set up correctly any money given could be returned if she decided not to run.
I would happily chip in $25 or so a month for the next two years. If enough people did that she would have a considerable jump on the rest of the pack.
It could also be set up so that anytime prior to a certain point a contributor that became disenchanted with her and her run for office could get back a portion of their contributions to date.
Just an idea. The more we can do to make a public spectacle of our support for her the less likely a lot of people would be interested in taking her on, especially if she were well funded.
I know a lot of what we feel for her right now is frustration with a system that has grown to be a threat to our very way of life. A system where many of us feel as though we have no longer have any say-so in the way our country is run. A system that has relegated us to political obscurity. We are ready for someone to come along, as did Ronald Reagan, and use their skills to lead us.
She could well turn out not to be that person, and if that's the case then so be it. But until she has gone off the reservation far enough to change my mind, she's the person for the job!
It has a monthly option.
Go for it!

Going Rogue is also #1 at Borders Books, and #1 in the non-fiction catagory at Books A Million. WalMart is also taking pre-release orders. The book has dropped to #7 at Barnes and Noble, which I suspect is due to Amazon offering it for $2 less, plus Amazon doesn’t charge sales tax. Matter of fact, I don’t know anyone who actually orders books from B&N since there are so many of their stores around, most people just go to the store. I plan on spending some time at B&N on Nov. 17th, just to see how many people are buying the book.
Something tells me that by the end of Oct or early Nov, the publisher will announce that the initial press run of 1.5 million is being increased due to the unexpectedly high pre-release sales.
I am convinced somehow the Lord knew how frustrated many of us are getting with the way things have been going and decided to give us a bit o’ hope! She might not be it, but for now I'll go for any ol’ port in the storm!
Great video, btw. Thanks much.
That was excellent!!! Bill Whittle does a great job in that video commentary.. Thanks for sharing.
watch this video....great great great......and true
