Sarah Palin lashes out at D.C., liberals, media
The Orlando Sentinel ^ | March 12, 2010 | David Damron

Posted on 03/13/2010 10:52:48 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Sarah Palin lashed out at Washington, the media and condescending liberals Friday night at an Orlando Republican fund-raising event, and predicted the GOP would restore "common sense" to government in the upcoming November elections.

Palin said those notes she wrote on her hand at a National Tea Party event — where the media and White House later "busted me for using a poor-man's teleprompter" — explained just what the country needed: a strong energy policy, tax cuts; and "lifting America's spirits."

"Americans get it," Palin said. "In Washington, they don't get it."

The wildly popular, but equally polarizing former vice presidential candidate packed the Orange County Republican Party's annual Lincoln Day fundraiser, attracting 1,300 fans to the Shingle Creek Resort. Orange GOP Chairman Lew Oliver said he expected the event to net the party more than $110,000.

Orlando was the latest stop in Palin's high-mileage speaking tour. She spoke in Daytona Beach last month, headlined an Ohio Right to Life Society fundraiser last Friday, and landed in Calgary, Canada, the next day. Later this month, Palin will help raise re-election funds for U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., the man who plucked her from relative obscurity to be his running mate in the 2008 presidential race.

On Friday, Palin advocated drilling for oil and natural gas to gain energy independence but said nothing specifically about such exploration off Florida's coast, a source of heated political dispute.

While advocating for standard GOP issues — lower taxes, less spending, more freedom and smaller government — Palin also singled out one Central Florida Democratic politician: U.S Rep. Alan Grayson of Orlando. Palin said voters need to remove the fiery millionaire lawyer in November.

"Do it for the rest of America," she said in a speech lasting about 40 minutes.(continued)

How come the word "polarizing" is seldom used in an article about Mr. Obama or any other Democrat? BTW, did Canada have socialized medicine way back in the 1960's when they took Governor Palin's brother to the hospital? I don't believe they did, but why ruin a good story that slams Sarah with facts?!

The Sin-tinel just had to get this dig in, didn't it? After all, Obama is the great unifier, isn't he?

However, polarization might be what is needed right now. It is time to separate the wheat from the chaffe, liberalism from conservatism, Rinos from conservatism, ....

Reagan was also accused of being polarizing because he had divided the nation into two groups: The 59% of the nation who voted for him and the the 41% who voted against him.

That's the part I don't understand. Why is she considered polarizing? By all accounts she seems like a really nice lady. She's not doing controversial things like George Tiller was. Why hate her(unless you fear her). Her political obit has been written so many times it's got to be driving her ideological opponents in the MSM crazy.

Palin is "polarizing" because the media polarizes itself against her.

Why? Because if they don't, I suspect she will be loved by many, many independents and even some libs.

Therefore out of desperation, the MSM has set all its firepower against her.

And she praised Florida's weather, noting that it is much better than Alaska, "where it's 10 degrees below Congress' approval rating."

She sure knows how to stick it to the usurpers.

You said it but I was going to post something with much stronger language.

I am FLAMING SICK of the MSM and their petty, childish, repetitive self-fulfilling prophecies. They hammered this person for months even after the election was over and their empty suit won. Sheep-like people who think American Idol identifies talent and who think USA Today is an in-depth read believe that Palin is a threat, is dumb, etc.

Suddenly Palin is 'polarizing' because the ignorant and the easily-led don't like her? Ridiculous. And lazy. But that's the MSM for you.

Good point about the loaded concept of “polarizing”.
It’s nonsense but they apply it to people like Sarah, precisely BECAUSE they still can’t bring themselves to apply it to Obama, who richly deserves it.
( I guess the idea behind this is “hey, we’ve got the word
‘polarizing’ laying around, we’ve got to use it every day, so let’s apply it to Palin, since we certainly can’t apply it to Obama—after all, we voted for him’)
BUT, what I am seeing day by day and week by week, is a process whereby, by the time it’s over, Sarah Palin will
have drawn about half of America’s semi-committed Liberals in addition to quite a healthy percentage of Apathetics
over
to her (and our) side. She’s that good.
This ‘polarizing’ label is already coming unstuck.
I expect the MSM a year or two from now, will be congratulating itself on noticing that the “once-polarizing” figure of Sarah Palin is now , somehow, a lot more popular and “mainstream”.

Sarah Palin is the most archetypal mainstream American public figure since Ronald Reagan. To call her "polarizing" is to say that a substantial number of US citizens hate America and everything good that it stands for. There can be no other rational interpretation. Such ebenmies of America are to be squashed in the dirt like stinking stinging insects and not let up.

I love the “poor man’s teleprompter” line! She needs to continue to use that because she’s really good at self-deprecating humor and it just makes those who get all wee-wee’d up and attack her look silly when she laughs it off.

"but equally polarizing former vice presidential candidate "

Probably the most polarizing figure in the last 100 years sits as pResident in the White House today.

The kenyan has totally split this country down the middle, and makes it his daily duty to piss off more Americans with every teleprompter reading he does.

It is not Sarah Palin who is "ruling against the will of the people" and trying to ram a bogus healthercare plan down our throats, it's the kenyan.

As a matter of fact, at this juncture Sarah Palin has only one power - the backing of the people. But that is the most formidable power of all.

I agree that Palin is "polarizing", because if you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything. She is a staunch conservative; we have too many "non-polarizing" people in the government already, they're called 'liberals' and 'RINOs'.

Because Palin is a Conservative, she is supposed to be "polarizing"...she is supposed to rally people of similar beliefs and principles. She is not after appeasing the liberal/progressives, and they find that very "polarizing".

If you walk down "the middle of the road", you will get hit from both directions.

One thing is for sure, the kenyan and even running off the folks who voted for him, and Sarah keeps attracting more folks...so WHO is polarizing? If she wasn't "polarizing", she would be "bipolar", and who wants (another) bipolar president?

Thank GOD that Sarah has the courage to be "polarizing", the bipolar appeasers are the cowards of the world.

Good point on the "polarizing" tag that is placed on Sarah by the media like they did with President Reagan. Also, note the headline, "Sarah Palin lashes out ..." Sarah, like Reagan, doesn't "lash out". That's what wimpy libs do. Sarah, like RR, uses humor and well-pointed jabs to expose the nanny-state policies of the marxists while presenting conservative policies on energy, tax cuts and "lifting America's spirit". One more similarity with RR who lifted America out of the morose malaise of Carter.

I agree with you. I would love to see Sarah polarize this nation 59% to 41% too!

Talk about "polarizing"! Just read this:

"Found in: John Adams, The Works of John Adams, vol. 4 (Novanglus, Thoughts on Government, Defence of the Constitution) - NO. III. - paragraph 144

"Obsta principiis, nip the shoots of arbitrary power in the bud, is the only maxim which can ever preserve the liberties of any people. When the people give way, their deceivers, betrayers, and destroyers press upon them so fast, that there is no resisting afterwards. The nature of the encroachment upon the American constitution is such, as to grow every day more and more encroaching. Like a cancer, it eats faster and faster every hour. The revenue creates pensioners, and the pensioners urge for more revenue. The people grow less steady, spirited, and virtuous, the seekers more numerous and more corrupt, and every day increases the circles of their dependents and expectants, until virtue, integrity, public spirit, simplicity, and frugality, become the objects of ridicule and scorn, and vanity, luxury, foppery, selfishness, meanness, and downright venality swallow up the whole society."

John Adams words castigate the "arbitrary power" holders in Washington today who have gained their offices by promises to "redistribute" the earnings of hard-working citizens,

I voted for Palin once...and will do it again. She is MUCH more of a conservative than McCain.

I do not understand why the MSM reports on her so badly. If they think she is that bad why not just avoid it....as they do so many other things?

The MSM does NOT want a strong conservative candidate to win the GOP nomination. If the MSM reports on a candidate badly (think Ronald Reagan), that should be a candidate that conservatives back!

And conversely, if the MSM treats a GOP candidate well (think McCain, Huckleberry, Romney), conservatives should run away from them!

The other question is, why use the phrase ‘lashes out.’ Sounds so reactionary and defensive. From what I’ve seen of her speeches, I’d venture to say something like, oh, “pounds,” or “pummels”, for example, might be a better turn of phrase.

And, it’s alliterative! “Palin Pounds Pusillanimous Politicians”

From C4P

TIME magazine: Can Palin Be Elected?

For several decades, it has been an article of faith among politicians and political analysts that no candidate can win a U.S. presidential election unless he can dominate the broad center of the spectrum, that all candidates on the edges of the left or right are doomed. Barry Goldwater's "extremism . . . is no vice" campaign of 1964 provides the classic evidence, reinforced by George McGovern's 1972 defeat in 49 out of 50 states. And since G.O.P. Front Runner Sarah Palin relies upon a base of support that is on the far right wing of the Republican Party, some experts have long declared that if she wins the nomination, the G.O.P. would simply be repeating the suicidal Goldwater campaign.

(...)

National opinion polls continue to show Obama leading Palin by an apparently comfortable margin of about 25%. They also show that more moderate Republicans like Romney would run better against the President. This suggests that Palin is not the strongest G.O.P. choice for the 2012 election and that she clearly faces an uphill battle.

(...)

If popular unhappiness with domestic and world problems finally comes to rest at Obama's doorstep, voters may begin to see all sorts of previously invisible virtues in Sarah Palin.

(...)

Palin cannot hope to win, however, unless she moves beyond the hard-line conservative base that has sustained her since she first appeared on the national political scene as a spokesman for McCain himself. She has no experience in Washington politics or foreign affairs. Both Congress and the federal bureaucracy are as unfathomable to her as they were to Obama. Indeed one of Palin's major supporters in the Senate notes that the Alaskan is uncomfortable even visiting Washington.

(...)

Worse perhaps than the verbal gaffe is Palin's relentlessly simple-minded discussion of complex problems.

Full disclosure:
I may have changed a few names here and there. It's not actually Gov. Palin this Time Magazine article's talking about here, but Ronald Reagan. Yes, the Gipper was really running 25 points behind Carter as late as March 1980 - a mere eight months before the election. Simple statements, no experience in DC politics or foreign affairs, supported only by the rightwing fringe - completely unelectable, that Reagan fellow, wasn't he?

Polarizing is a good quality. There are two parties. They should have two different ideologies. This SHOULD be polarizing. Two moderate party platforms are akin to one party.

The Republicans should start to use “polarizing” and “partisan” as positive terms. Republicans on the right, democrats on the left, and let the voters decide.

Very well said. We do not agree. Why try to hide the fact. The news media is what tries to promote this false idea of bi partisan ship and grid lock and all that stuff.

Disagreements are healthy. Gridlock is healthy. EVERY bill that Congress passes compromises a freedom. It should NOT be easy to pass a bill. We need to shout that loud and clear.

Canada nationalized health care in 1966 under Lester B Pearson. Tommy Douglas (The so called father or medicare) brought it to Saskatchewan (a province) in 1962.

FYI, a foreigner cannot just walk into a Canadian hospital so if Palin’s brother was brought there it seems reasonable to me to assume he paid for it.

It should be noted that Tommy Douglas’ party is a distant 3rd (4th in Quebec) in Canada with almost 0 change of ever forming government

Only Lincoln was more polarizing in our history and that's because the south wanted to grow slavery! Lincoln even tried to avoid war, but the south was committed to break the union.

Lincoln tried to make men Free and unite the country!

Obama is taking our freedoms away and divide the country!

Sarah Palin has good political instincts, regardless of whatever imperfection you may point to (McCain fundraiser, or whatever else). She’s quite good, and I think smart. I think she’s learning more and more as she goes, as she simply hadn’t had experience in the national spotlight before about 2 years ago. Not bad for someone that is probably a lot like one of us. Well, other than she’s way better looking...:)
