The Midterms: Lessons Learned and the Way Forward
NRO ^ | 11/4/2010 | Sarah Palin

Posted on 11/04/2010 8:18:19 PM PDT by One Name

Now that the dust has settled on the 2010 midterm elections, it’s slowly becoming clear just how monumental the results really are. We saw an extreme left-wing agenda suffer a crushing defeat. At the ballot box, voters took Obamacare and the stimulus and wrapped them right around the necks of those same House members and senators who had arrogantly dismissed the concerns voiced in countless town halls and Tea Party rallies up and down the country. Voters sent commonsense conservatives a clear mandate to hold the line against the Obama agenda.

It’s still amazing the fear she causes Democrats and beltway Republicans.

The “evolution” of Sarah Palin memes...

1. She’s a dummy
2. She’s not experienced enough
3. She’s a quitter
4. She’s at best a cheeleader
5. She’s only be a kingmaker on the local level
6. Oh no...some of candidates lost...she’s DOOMED!!!!
7. If she stays at the back of the bus, and lets the men run the show, we’ll let her hang around...for a while.

Our girl has it going on!

While everyone else is digesting and reveling and ruminating she has already laid out a theme for 2012.

Leadership only comes along once in a while.

Wow! Great article! She’s hitting her stride.

Don’t back down - Never surrender.

Gravitas? In spades!

She wrote a great, concise article.

It is amazing how large the disconnect is between who she is and what she stands for - as clear as a bell - and the distorted and prejudiced narrative of the liberal media and political class against her.

I seriously think that copies of that picture should be mailed, faxed or hand delivered to every defeated Democrat in the country.

Can you hear us NOW!

I heard a new one on Hannity I think. Some lib bimbo made a closing comment about Sarah being “all hat and no cattle”. They need to start getting better material as Sarah has been rounding them up and heading them out. No other political or media personality today is creating more nationally known new names in politics. The rest of the media is listening to her whether they like her or not. Because they can't stop talking about what she says, they increase her reach and power.

Any leadership that is not Democrat or from an Ivy League school is considered stupid.

I think a common sense human being with some blush with the military would probably be capable of running this country.

“all hat and no cattle”

Still using Texas aphorisms against an Alaskan. That is so Twenty Naughts.

Arm chair general. It is quite a CYA on DE and AK losses.

What in the world was that about filibustering Obama SCOTUS nominees? Where was she when overwhelming majority of senators voted for Obama’s two fat, ugly, ultra leftist, racist women for SCOTUS?

For somebody who they say has nothing they sure are afraid of her. Imagine a House and Senate with 3 Republicans for every 2 RATS, and Sarah in the White House. It would be like a second revolution.

Well, I’ll say one thing for NRO. At least they dropped their snooty pundit ways for a day and published Sarah’s article.

Not sure they’d have done that before this tidal wave hit the elections. Too busy looking down their noses at her and working for Mitt Romney.

Sorry. I was hauling hay and drank a few beers. At noon here the article hadn’t been posted. I did a quick (deficient)search under 1)Sarah Palin and 2)Midterms.... when I got done.

Do I need to put the title in quotes?

I could be dangerous if eductated!

Holding her tongue for a reason that might register with some.

Quotes are not needed. Just pick one word from the article title longer than three letters (the minimum needed for a search) and do a "order by post time" (click the button beside "order by relevance") search.

(BTW, this is why there is a FR rule that we don't change the article title.)

For example, here's a search on the word 'learned'. You'll see that this article has been posted three times.

It seems everyone wants to fight only skirmishes. Sarah is a General. She is recruiting, training and equipping her troops. She is assessing the opponents’ strengths and weaknesses. She is assessing the theater of war to select the most advantageous locations and timing for the battles required to divide and weaken her opponents. She is making sure that the logistics are available to prosecute a war, not just some of the battles.

THIS IS HOW WARS ARE WON!
