Has Sarah Palin saved the GOP?
The Washington Post ^ | September 17, 2010 | Paul Goldman, former chairman of Virginia's Democratic Party

Posted on 09/16/2010 10:22:29 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Delaware Republicans have proved it: Sarah Palin is the best asset the GOP has right now.

There has been a lot of carping about Republicans' prospects for November since Palin-backed candidate Christine O'Donnell defeated longtime Delaware officeholder Mike Castle for the Republican Senate nomination Tuesday. But contrary to conventional wisdom, the 2008 vice presidential nominee has kept the party strong. How? She has kept the Tea Party faithful inside the GOP tent. Had she instead encouraged these disillusioned voters to mount third-party challenges across the 2010 general-election ballot, dozens of Democratic incumbents, not to mention challengers, would be smiling like Woodrow Wilson in 1912.

That year, a simmering feud between two wings of the Republican Party resulted in the "Bull Moose" independent presidential candidacy of former president Teddy Roosevelt. The Rough Rider's support four years earlier landed William Howard Taft the GOP nomination, but the two had a falling-out. Their disunity allowed Wilson, the governor of New Jersey, to claim the White House with the lowest winning percentage of the popular vote since the two-party era began in 1864. Wilson was only the second Democrat elected president since the Civil War; a GOP united by a temporary, even testy, marriage of convenience would have triumphed easily. But egos proved too large. It did not matter that Wilson was, in TR's term, the "coiner of weasel words."

Establishment Republicans, including former Bush aide Karl Rove, have said this year that the strength of the Tea Party movement has sometimes forced the nomination of contenders with weak prospects for winning a general election. This is surely right; O'Donnell's upset on Tuesday is merely the latest example, but there were similar complaints about the Nevada Senate contest.(continued)

We don’t need a rocket scientist in the white house, which the media thinks that O’Bammy was.

All we simply need is someone who who has enough plain ol’ common sense to realize the simple reality that the government is not there to help, it is there to grow itself and reducing it is the best thing one can do for one’s country.

Sarah Palin is a lot smarter than her critics would like you to think and she carries the above attribute in spades.

I would vote for her.

I don't know how history will treat her, but I think she'll go down with Reagan as a great, great American.....

Well there is a saying that "Truth is the daughter of time", though in this leftie dominated media and institution age you have to wonder.

If the adage is true, yes, she will be seen as a unique and trailblazing political figure, from the moment she first stepped on the national stage in 2008.

And certainly, the first woman to have had such an impact.

What utter rubbish.

Last time I checked Christine O'Donnell ran on the
Republican ticket not the Tea Party ticket.

Secondly, Castle was a congressman from a relatively
moderate to left district. He was now running for Senate.
The state of Delaware only has one Senator.
His chances of taking Biden’s seat from a state
that has slid to the left over the years was poor as it was.
What ever support he had from Republicans and
independents was ruined after his vote for cap
and trade and his alignment with Soros and Podestra’s
Center For American Progress among many other
violations of Conservative principals.

That's why he lost to Christine O'Donnell.
It had little to do with Sarah Palin.

Ruined the RNC’s chances?
After running Dole and McCain and putting a communist appeaser like
Michael Steele as chairman I don't think the RNC
needed any help.

The RNC is at fault here.
They have gone the direction of the socialists.

Christine O'Donnell is the result.
The GOP voters are fed up!
They elected her.

We support the RNC through our donations (many small
business did before McCain destroyed that) and
it is owned by its members. Not the betraying politicians that
try to control it.

The people that are destroying the GOP must go! If the
people of Delaware wanted to elect socialists or
communist's all they would need to do is vote Democrat.

Interesting, but ... more interesting is that the pundits are reaching farther and farther back into history looking for some shade of political parallels with which to fill their columns.

The reality is that none of the historical molds fit. The Revolutionary war had 3% support, more or less depending on the source. If the patriots had had the level of support that our Tea Party candidates have today, that war would have been over in one season.

You and MEG33, cherry, dsc and Hinckley Buzzard and others are all correct.

Sarah was like no other VP candidate in history.

She became the star of campaign instantly and it’s a real shame the top of the ticket didn’t listen to her or make make use of her God given talents.

Fortunately, she’s her own Sarah now, and like Michele Bachmann said, “the world is her oyster.”

God bless and protect Sarah Palin and her precious family.

You might want to look at the tracking polls and see what happened to her after Palin threw her support. I don’t think it was a coincidence.

“We support the RNC through our donations (many small business did before McCain destroyed that)”

Not MY small business ... not anymore ... checks go direct to campaigns. Screw the RNC.

The MSM and the Washington elite heads would explode if Palin were to become President. The truth is Reagan got much the same reaction from both. Palin is younger and more energetic while retaining the ability to connect to ordinary people.

I think they would have a collective aneurysm...

THAT’S WHY HE LOST TO CHRISTINE O’DONNELL.

IT HAD LITTLE TO DO WITH SARAH PALIN.

Dave, if you check the history of the Palin House, Senate or gubernatorial endorsements and how they affected the primary and lifted her endorsee to victory she provided different things to different candidates:

1)Christine O’Donnell

Political legitimacy as a worthy candidate and not a flake

2)Kelly Ayotte

Allowed Kelly to eke out a narrow win over a strong conservative challenge

3)Carly Fiorina

Disabused the notion Fiorina was a RINO and stamped her as a conservative

4)Susana Martinez

Allowed Martinez to break open a very tight primary race and to romp to an easy victory giving her the momentum she now has in the general election

5)Joe Miller

Gave him name recognition and increased his profile

6)Nikki Haley

Caused her to dramatically catapault from 3rd or 4th place to first place by a wide margin

7)Rand Paul

Legitimized the Tea Party movement as a major player when she went up against the establishment and Rand Paul as a major player within the TPM and established her ties to the libertarian movement

8)Pam Bondi

Provided the margin of victory

9)Tom Emmer

Allowed him to win against a tough opponent

10)Michele Bachmann

The unity of the two most hated conservative women in America

Wow...not bad, and from a demonrat strategist?!?!?

I read the whole article. It was balanced and he made his case, even though he personally doesn’t like her. I take issue with a couple of his caveats (eg. policy weaknesses, etc.), but I think his overall point is probably valid.

However, I don’t think it was her alone. A number of voices (Rush, Hannity, Beck, DeMint) also cautioned against a 3rd party. Clearly, she was in the forefront.

A lot of the credit goes to the myriad of leaders of the Tea Party, who were A) smart enough to not create a single leader, and B) not push to make the Tea Party a political party.

By the way even PPP in their blog admitted that Ayotte would not have narrowly won without the Palin endorsement. Lamontagne was coming on big time.

As for O’Donnell, don’t forget the NRA and Demint both endorsed her after the Palin endorsement.

What the Palin endorsement imho did for O’Donnell was brought conservatives to the polls for her, and imho these were folks who were initially lukewarm or comme ci, comme ca to O’Donnell but once they got the word from Palin, would be willing to walk over broken glass to the polls to vote for O’Donnell. That is Palin Power.

That is why she scares Obama and the Dems in 2012.

In case you have forgotten or don’t know one of the primary reasons Obama won in 2008 was that millions of white older conservatives stayed home and did not vote because of their resentment of McCain being a RINO and his career in the Senate. In addition Obama got 1/3 more conservative vote as a percentage than Kerry did in 2004, the increase made up mostly of conservative independents who had defected from the GOP because of Bush, security moms and Roman Catholics.

Palin has the ability to get these people to the polls in 2012 and it is quite conceivable that with Obama now mired in the mid 30’s in job approval among white voters that Palin as the GOP nominee could get 60%-62% of the white vote in 2012 and blow the Messiah out of the water.

That is the bottom line why they must destroy Palin.

It wasn’t just Palin though, Levin, Hannity and Rush spent many hours of their shows supporting her/attacking Castle toward the end, DeMint endorsed her late, Michelle Bachmann endorsed O’Donnell on the day before the primary

All the support from all these insurgent sources reached a critical mass for her, that any one who liked her positions but might have been concerned about the questions over her history felt they could safely support her without worrying about some embarrass revelation that might come out later.

I think Palin certainly helped her, but if Palin was the only one that endorsed her people might not have been convinced.

I'm not downplaying Sarah.

But I quite a fiew friends in Delaware.
Every one I called and talked to voted for Christine O’Donnell
because Castle had made them sick.

One said he made Arlen Specter look like a super conservative.
Another said Cap and trade was the final straw.
Not one said Sarah changed their mind.

All said that they voted for Glen Urquhart because
of Michele Rollins stance on abortion.
That was just as big an upset as Christine's.

Not a one said Sarah influenced them.
Some people can think for themselves.

Dave, what I am talking is the MARGIN of difference. Notice the huge turnout on Tuesday. Imho there was a small percentage of these folks-5%-7% who might not have felt motivated to have gone to the polls on Tuesday or might have voted for Castle instead if not for the Palin endorsement. In addition the Palin endorsement may have swayed the undecided vote who still had doubts about O’Donnell because of all the negative publicity sent her way. When Palin endorsed O’Donnell, she basically vouched for her character which as you know was a huge issue during the campaign.

The MSM and the Washington elite heads would explode if Palin were to become President.

True, but making people angry doesn't pass for productive in my book. Reagan got people voting for him beyond his personality. He knew how to deliver tangible results because of years of study and intellectual preparation. I don't have that confidence in Sarah Palin as she has shown little interest beyond feel-good platitudes that do not comport with the results of her administration.

I have zero confidence in her preparation for the conduct of foreign policy.

She left Wasilla far deeper in dept due to a subsidized and socialized exercise and entertainment monopoly. She vastly increased taxes on oil production such that drilling plans were dropped and left the state. Checked the unemployment numbers in Alaska lately?

The truth is Reagan got much the same reaction from both.

No argument there.

Palin is younger and more energetic while retaining the ability to connect to ordinary people.

Barack Obama had those attributes in 2008, but it didn't mean he would be a good President.

Before McCain made his pick of Palin, many conservatives, myself included, said the only way I’d vote for McCain was if he picked Sarah Palin. That was Free Republic wanted, if there was any clear choice.

Sarah Palin wasn’t unknown around here. When he picked her, we knew her already and were psyched. I was waiting in line when the polls opened and proudly voted for Sarah Palin.
A lot of people here will say the same thing.
