Skip to comments.Gunfight At DC Corral: Palin vs Obama.
Posted on 06/04/2011 9:44:12 AM PDT by Lloyd Marcus
I'm sorry guys. Every time you flood me with emails attempting to convince me Palin can not win; is too toxic, not smart enough, a hypocrite and is only in it for the money, the courageous woman boldly does another extraordinary interview that makes me stand up and cheer, Sarah Palin, you go girl! I love you!
On the Hannity show, Palin launched another in your face attack on Obama, the GOP and the liberal media. I LOVE IT!
Nothing frustrates me more than GOP candidates walking on eggs cautious not to offend or anger the despicable, lying, agenda driven and evil liberal media. Why should we show respect for characterless people who are committed to lying and putting a negative spin on everything we say and do? The liberal media's mission is to politically kill the tea party. Get it?
Sarah Palin gets it. Palin does not give a rat's behind about what the liberal media thinks of her.
On numerous occasions, without the slightest hint of reservation or FEAR, Palin has attacked Obama the man; his lies, his anti-American associations, his socialist agenda, his assault on our freedom, liberty and culture and his horrific record, thus far. Thank You Sarah Palin! God bless you!
I realize I sound like a broken record, but I can not express the following point strongly enough. To beat Obama and his media in 2012, our candidate MUST embrace Palin's aggressive fearless battle plan.
It has been said, only a fool brings a knife to a gunfight. Without restraint or mercy, Obama, the democrats and Obama's liberal media gang will show up at the 2012 DC fight for the White House with mega guns firing at the tea party and the republican presidential candidate.
Any republican presidential candidate who is timid due to the historical context of Obama's presidency saying, God bless Obama's heart. He meant well, but his policies have failed is like entering this crucial battle for our country with a butter knife. Such a restrained effort would insure political death to our side and the end of America as we know it.
Patriots, we need a fearless political gunslinging hero. And so far, our heroic pistol packin' mama is Sarah Palin.

Sarah Palin is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN
Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama isn't!
I stood up and cheered when Sarah came right out and said that Obama and Pelosi, et al just LIED. They didn’t misspeak, they didn’t misunderstand; THEY LIED, and they continue to lie!
I agree that the only way to defeat them is to undress them right in the public square and show them up for the dishonorable, lying, scheming thieves they are!
Your *Leader of the Pack* column I posted, got 254 comments!
Governor Palin's life experiences make her uniquely qualified to venture into various venues and fit in. She owns and rides a bike. Believe me, the brotherhood and sisterhood of bikers is strong.
She and her husband own a fishing business. She can go into a New Hampshire fishing town and speak authoritatively about the industry.
Special needs children, rank and file union membership, public school teachers challenges (per parents), energy policy, ethics in government and on and on.
Like her or not. Agree with her or not, one thing that is not arguable is she connects with Middle America like no other Republican candidate since "you know who".
I am glad you reposted. You’re spot on! Yes, I know precisely who you mean and I concur!
Exactly. What we need at this critical time is someone with strong leadership ability and the courage of her convictions. Indeed, we need someone with real convictions and moral principles in the first place, which she will stick to.
And Palin is the only one in sight with those qualities.
In my lifetime, Winston Churchill had it. Golda Meier had it. Margaret Thatcher had it. Ronald Reagan had it. And Sarah Palin has it.
No one else. Either we transform the Republican party or, as is looking more an more likely as the time to act runs out, we replace the Republican party. And she is the only one with the strength to do so.
Sarah runs as an independent vs romney and the commie.
Thank you for sharing that with us....again.

So very true. Like McCain saying, my friends you don't need to fear an 0bama presidency. :(
All that does is cut the heart out of your own constituency.
I will pull the lever for Palin, or write her in, unless a genuine conservative is on the ballot. On the top of the ticket. If the Democrats win and the country goes to halifax, that's what the country will have deserved.
Right on the money! Keep it up!
Strong person but so far she is a stealth candidate. What does she propose to do if elected President - on jobs - ME wars - taxes - health care - social security - ?
Could not agree more. Watched the video and it got me even more fired up. That is exactly what we need. When freedom is at stake, bring out your best weapons and take NO prisoners!
We were with her from her first speech at the convention in 2008,The GOP elitist Turds are our enemy, along with the Democommie filth of course.
Never in this lifetime will anyone convince me that "he means well".
He and his handlers intended to "fundamentally destroy the USA", and that is exactly what they have been doing.
Amen, and God bless you!
“Thank You Sarah Palin! God bless you!” sums it up for me.
Should be Red cowboy Boots or steel toed work boots.. not heels..
Sarah is not a Stiletto heeled kind of chick..

Palin is the only one that uses words that Americans can all understand. Words like lying, distorting, false accusing, etc, etc. She is trying to show the gutless wonders that are running for President that being a yellow stupid coward will not get votes. All of the GOP wanna be nitwits are not up to fighting but just talking points. Makes my blood boil.
May God bless you Lloyd Marcus.
Thank you for the post.
If your ears were open yuou would have the answer to your questions. God gave you 2 ears and one mouth for a reason. More listening, less talking.
What you said Loyd! What you said!
Excellent piece, Lloyd! Right on target!
BTW, I can only imagine the the volume of nasty troll mail you get.
Keep on giving them hell!!!
Must. Be. Repeated.
People who think Palin hasn't had enough "training" for POTUS hear this: She's been training her whole life for this job. Her background and understanding of America's founding history, capitalism, free markets, the constitution, energy, small business, national defense, cronyism, corruption, and the essence of family make her the most qualified candidate for POTUS EVER!
That first night when she spoke at the GOP convention, America loved her. That was before the media/entertainment culture started telling them they couldn’t trust their own judgement. One of my friends actually said to me, “That was the first time I ever understood what a politician was saying.” She speaks plain English. She speaks American.
Great post, Lloyd! ............................. FRegards
Oops. I guess that photoshop didn’t pass the smell test. Sorry about that.
Interesting post from (C4P....”Technopeasant”)
I posted on this topic earlier but let me elaborate. Two keys events happened in early May 2011 which might have changed the course of American history.
On May 1, 2011, five weeks ago, the news came down late on Sunday evening that Osama Bin Laden had been killed. Once it was officially confirmed a few days later, President Obama’s overall job approval number soared and as well as his foreign affairs rating. His people knew that Obama’s job approval on his handling of the economy, the budget deficit, fiscal and monetary policy would not immediately follow suit but I think anticipated his domestic poll numbers would show signs of moving out of the doldrums by the end of May, feeling that the American people would be caught up in the euphoria of the BL killing to at least suspend their anger or antagonism towards Obama on what the media refers to as “pocketbook issues”. In turn this would give another “rocket” boost to his overall approval number and in turn his re-elect number and take Obama into the mid 50’s range in approval and in the high 40’s in his re-elect number from which he could then leverage over the course of the next 17 months to gain another 2-3 % in his re-elect number to sail to re-election.
About two weeks later, on May 14, 2011, Mike Huckabee, who had told the world about 3 and 1/2 months before he would NOT be announcing his presidential plans until the “latter part” of summer, apparently had a change of heart or mind and decided to move up his timetable and tell the world his plans. Prior to his announcement, most polls had shown Huck to be first or second in national polls and first or second in most state polls with most pundits predicting if Huckabee did run that he would be a serious player in the 2012 GOP presidential race. Catching some political watchers off-guard (not myself or most people at C4P due to firelight’s inside information) despite the highly favorable poll numbers, Mike Huckabee bowed out of the 2012 race throwing the race into temporary chaos and the status of each candidate into complete discombobulation or into a state of acute uncertainty.
I need not bore you again with the difference in poll numbers released by PPP on May 10th with Huckabee in the race vs the June 2 national poll with Huck no longer in the mix except to say that there was merit in the extensive political anxiety or uneasiness brought about by Huckabee’s departure as many candidates saw their poll numbers either increase exponentially or decrease dramatically over a period of just 3 weeks.
Now let’s merge these two events together and here is what I think happened. Sometime around the week of May 15-21, I believe the Obama war room (OWR) and even maybe with Obama himself present huddled together to brainstorm certain possibilities regarding the significance of both events and one of those scenarios they looked at but hoped would not unfold was Obama’s poll numbers stagnating after his initial boost in fortune from the BL killing and not getting the secondary boost from voters feeling more kindly towards him on the economy and at the same time Sarah Palin getting a major boost in GOP primary support due to Huckabee leaving the race.
One thing you have to remember PPP was not the first poll post-Huckabee to show Palin surging and being virtually within thhe margin of error tied with Romney or at least securely entrenched in second place in the horse race. So the Obama war room most likely had a general idea of what was happening in the GOP presidential race (Romney losing conservative support and Palin gaining among conservatives especially among those self-identifying as VERY CONSERVATIVE). And once the OWR realized the above, that Obama’s approval number had plateaued in the high 40’s with his re-elect number still being no better than 45% and Palin finally beginning to hit her stride despite not having thrown her hat into the ring yet, I believe they decided to perhaps contemplate changing their political strategy fundamentally towards dealing with Sarah Palin.
For the last 2+ years or even going back to the 2008 election, the Obama WH has run two parallel political strategies in their attempt to take down Sarah Palin: from the WH to virtually ignore her despite her ongoing attacks on Obama and his radical agenda (Sarah Palin in an interview with Greta Van Susteren even hinted at that when she suggested that “President Obama doesn’t know me from Adam”) and for the MSM to continually deny her the opportunity to further legitimize her political credentials and worthiness through a steady stream of smears, ridicule and vituperation. The WH even went so far as to not attack Palin in the lead-up to the 2010 midterms knowing full well she was mobilizing TP supporters, helping to get TP type candidates to win their primaries and to finally helping to maximize conservative turnout that would prove disastrous to the Democrats in both the House and the Senate as well in state houses and governor races nationwide. And because of that, the MSM was largely ineffective in their attempts to diminish Palin in the eyes of conservatives and Republicans. In other words was the WH so obsessed with not giving Palin any window of opportunity to further enhance her political status to protect Obama’s re-election bid that they were willing to throw many Democrats under the bus? I can’t prove it but the thought has definitely crossed my mind.
Now to present day. I think about two weeks ago the decision was made by the Obama WH in collusion with the “state-run media” (MSM) to put out a trial balloon to signal a change in strategy regarding Sarah Palin. And that change in strategy imho involved acknowledging that Sarah Palin could win the GOP nomination and/or beat Obama in 2012 thus further legitimizing Palin, but at the same time paving the way for a new strategy of demonization, running over the next 17 months against the newly legitimized Sarah Palin resulting in a campaign of fear, terror, disinformation and propaganda full of daily demagoguery of Palin foisted on the American people to warn the nation of the dire consequences of Sarah Palin winning the 2012 election and that if you didn’t want armaggedon to occur that they dare not risk changing horses in midstream (the 1864 Abraham Lincoln strategy) but instead embrace “the devil they did know” instead of the devil they didn’t know.
And on the broadcast last week by Andrew Sullivan proclaiming on the Chris Matthews show that Palin could beat Obama in 2012, soon to be echoed by fellow panelist Leftist Joe Klein who invoked Carter and Reagan, and then to be followed up by Howard Dean the other day suggesting that Palin could beat Obama, the Donna Brazile op-ed singing the praises of Palin’s political skills and finally Jan Crawford of CBS writing that “Sarah Palin is a seasoned executive more than qualified to be President” what you have are several trial balloons launched to ready the fear scenario once it becomes more apparent Palin will win the nomination.
But for the WH to even consider such a fundamental change in strategy so early in this election cycle suggests to me they don’t think Romney will be able to beat Palin and that the de-legitimization strategy of the past 2+ years has simply not worked to stop Palin in her tracks. Once Palin gains the nomination she will be seen as a much more serious political figure than she is now. The OWR is not stupid. Why start to demonize Palin only after she win the nomination? Instead let’s assume she will win the nomination and use the additional months to fine-tune our strategy and muster the resources necessary to “go nuclear” on Palin.
And if Romney wins, we can always pull off the shelf our Romney strategy of demonizing him to evangelicals and conservatives and hanging him with the Romneycare albatross causing a third party to arise, allowing Obama to sail the victory coming up the middle.
Bottom line: Obama, his war room and the MSM are becoming more and more convinced (especially after the first leg of the national bus tour) that Palin is going to win the GOP nomination. Don’t be fooled on who they say publicly is the most dangerous GOP candidate to Obama’s re-election bid. I certainly won’t be. Will you?
