An Open Letter To Sarah Palin:
Veritas2002 | 02-01-12 | Vanity

Posted on 02/01/2012 5:43:41 AM PST by veritas2002

Dear Sarah,

I hope you are enjoying this year's fight for the Republican Presidential nomination. However, many of us out here are not pleased with the trashing, backed by Big Money, that Romney and his minions have heaped on Gingrich - mostly based on falsehoods. Romney and his backers in the MSM and the Old Guard of the Republican Party (Rove, McCain, Dole, et al) are trying their hardest to once again hoodwink the party base.

In order to upset the establishment and to garner favor among those of us who are Tea-Partying conservatives, I would encourage you to send out some signals that you would not be averse to a draft at the Convention. When the media and the RINOs think that you are seriously considering accepting the nomination if it is offered to you, then they will focus in on you and not on Newt. This will drive them all crazy which is exactly what most of us out here want to see happen.

So Sarah, start tweeting that you would NOT be against accepting your Party's nomination if that were the will of the convention delegates. Then step back and watch the fireworks!

I wish it could be. The president who gave the finger to Hillary would plant every innuendo he could find in a willing press. The first debate question? When did you stop screwing basketball players?
She’d handle it, but at great personal pain. It’d be Stevenson/Eisenhower again, only now with snide intimations that she’s a whore. If she does it, that proves she values her country more than life itself.

Yes! Yes! Let’s have a nominee who didn’t even bother to get off her bus and actually run.

She’s really for the country...er...I mean...speaking fees.

Being able to see the writing on the wall is not a bad thing...Sarah has more power in the republican party by not running. In her position one must look to future campaigns. The old guard are slowly dieing out or retiring Sarah has focused on taking over the party and making it a more Conservative one!

She already said No.

All a stunt like this would do is suppress the Conservative voters to ‘wait’ for something else instead of fight with what they have. This would basically let Mittens walk away with the nomination with less opposition.

No thanks. Strategically this is stupid.

Sarah Palin has made her decision. On January 18th, Newt Gingrich accepted a partial endorsement from Sarah Palin, after already accepting a full endorsement from Todd Palin earlier. In return, Newt Gingrich made a very public statement in an interview with Wolf Blitzer on the very public CNN. Newt Gingrich said he will ask Sarah Palin “to play a major role” in his administration if elected President. That, to me, was an unfortunate declaration. It implied Palin could be bought. Those who had become disenchanted with her because she didn’t enter the race, became more disenchanted with her with what appears to be a mutually lucrative deal. No one is complaining about the endorsement, partial or otherwise, it was the implication of a trade-off. It was deafening.
While millions are being spent by Romney and others combined, there probably was no greater “equalizer” than the involvement of the Palins in Gingrich’s campaign. It should have worked in Florida big time. It didn’t. It didn’t work, not because of negative ads run by other camps, but because people are sick to death of being played. They just didn’t come out to vote. That is a real fear in the Republican party all through history...especially with Bush the Elder and Dole. It was only with GW that the base was energized. It would have been energized with Sarah, one way or another, but she gave it away. She made her choice (even considering her family explanation)and now she is a celebrity with the ability to draw crowds. That’s all. That’s enough.

Sarah speaks the truth. fantasyland ideas,

1. She and Newt form a team and rally the tea Party vote: Newt/Palin ticket would drive people nuts.

2. Sarah and Trump start a new ALL CONSERVATIVE news Cable Channel—No Balanced approach—Tea Party views—anti-Obama and anti-RINO views. News for Americans by Americans—no Brits aloud.

3. Sarah Palin makes a movie about founding women from Martha Washington to Molly Pitcher —Show how they won freedom as well as men.

4. Sarah and Trump start a national newspaper—with Rush L.s help—like USA Today but CONSERVATIVE. I would subscribe today.

5. Sarah needs her own hour on TV each week—Like Huckabee only with real talent and real ideas. A Conservative show that will expose the weak concepts that have poisoned the media. Thats what I think.

She continues to play a coy game that keeps her in the news. Yeah Mitt sucks, but comparing the Republican party to anything relating to Stalin is so over the top and so lacking in true historical accuracy that it brings shame to the memory of the millions of people that Stalin killed.
She does know that there are plenty of worshipers out there who love this kind of red meat without even thinking of what a ridiculous comparison it is.

I've been a big Sarah fan before she came on the national scene.

I was following her when she first got elected in Alaska but Sarah ain't coming this time.

She took too much of a beating the first time, and she's now content to kibitz from the safety of Wasila, by the fire place.

I'm not blaming her, it's just my observation.

She has a nice FOX contract, has to talk 2-3 times a week for 20 minutes, and is laughing all the way to the bank.

Why throw that away?

Patience my son.

Brokered Convention

A brokered convention is a situation in United States politics in which there are not enough delegates ‘won’ during the presidential primary and caucus elections for a single candidate to have a pre-existing majority, during the first official vote for a political party's presidential-candidate at its nominating convention.

Once the first ballot, or vote, has occurred, and no candidate has a majority of the delegates’ votes, the convention is then considered brokered; thereafter, the nomination is decided through a process of alternating political horse-trading, and additional re-votes.[1][2][3][4] In this circumstance, all regular delegates (who, previously, were pledged to the candidate who had won their respective state's primary or caucus election) are “released,” and are able to switch their allegiance to a different candidate before the next round of balloting. It is hoped that this ‘freedom’ will result in a re-vote resulting in a clear majority of delegates for one candidate.

Step 1: GOP elitists hand-pick their boy.

Step 2: GOP elitists assist lib media and DNC operatives to pick off Republican candidates one by one. Cain, Perry etc.

Step 3: GOP elitists enlist liberal 'Republican' media (Drudge, Coulter, etc) to trash any other possible contenders.

Step 4: GOP elitists rig national convention for Romney. DNC laughing in their shoes. This time, NO SARAH PALIN. GOP elitists hand-pick VP 'moderate'.

Step 5: DNC and liberal media begin death knell for Romney. Compare RomneyCare, Wall Street, and Mormonism to All-American Obama for the little guy. GOP elitists scratching heads wondering how this all went wrong! Polls show Obama in LANDSLIDE re-election as lib media pats themselves on backs for a job well done.

Step 6: GOP elitists hand down instructions: NO CRITICISM OF OBAMA!! Would be interpreted as racist. Fall 'debates' clearly won by Obama as media portrays his brilliance over Romney.

Step 7: Romney loses all but 2 states. GOP as party ceases to exist but it doesn't bother GOP elitists since they still have job and lots of money. They laugh as America goes down the toilet.

Step 8: Socialist dictator Obama takes control. Throws out Constitution. Now has mandate to impose Communism. Conservatives are singled out for IRS audits, arrest, jail. Martial law imposed. Borders flood wide open. Depression hits. Obama plays 600 rounds of golf and laughs as country is destroyed. A good eight years. But wait. He's NOW dictator for LIFE!

Thanks McLame!

Perhaps until the past few weeks, but the comparison is now accurate with regards to the Romney campaign.

Anyone who is awake can recognize the Alinsky tactics.

“Being able to see the writing on the wall is not a bad thing.”

But CAN anyone??? The Tea Party supporters themselves are not coalescing around one candidate. Certainly not Newt. Sarah realizes it.

Mis-reading the american electorate equals losing the general.

Palin’s decision to get out was based on the age old #1 reason politicians decide to run or not: money. The truth is she didn’t have any money in the bank to run for a national office like POTUS. Wall Street would NEVER contribute to her, and if you’re going to run for POTUS you need to have scores of huge backers to financially prop you up for the long long haul. The Republican Party Establishment had ZERO interest in seeing her nomination - they’ve fully cast their lot with Mitt RomneyCare, who WILL (regrettably) be the nominee and who WILL lose in the general election, period.

So it’s really about money. And she may be right that her influence will be to support TEA Party type candidates throughout the nation running for Congress. She’s still a huge draw for TEA Party constituents. And it could be interesting to compare the audiences where she appears and the audiences where Mitt RomneyCare appears.

The C4P fantasy posts used to say that even if she waited to announce till last November that she would immediately have 10s of thousands of boots on the ground going door to door around the country emailing and making phone calls that bring in a pile of grass roots $$$$ donations. Then they said the big donors would follow the small ones not wanting to miss the tidal wave bus. Then she would whip Romney and the other RINOs with one hand, or just one pinky, and American would be saved...DA-DA-DA.

That C4P site posted the most entertaining fantasies, and many here appeared to continually buy them (based on the comments) like a starving squirrel finding an acorn in the dead of winter. I even posted two of them myself for fun.

Lots of good ideas there.

In particular, I think a truly conservative national newspaper would do well.

I found the C4P post that I was thinking of.

Everyone knows that if (when) Palin runs, she will run a grassroots campaign. She will rely on deep enthusiasm among an often underestimated group of supporters and a lot of small donations to drive her campaign. Win the nomination, and the deeper pockets will come along for the ride. That pretty much was her strategy in Alaska in her run for governor in 2006. But, the beginning is the tricky part. Like 2006, she has to strike hard and fast this time in order to diminish the organizational and monetary advantages that the so-called frontrunners have.
(clip)
Listen to Sarah talk about grassroots and about needing the mood of the country to reveal itself in the 2010 elections. Think about the new media. We often hear Sarah talk about an “unconventional campaign.” Perhaps the more appropriate description is a “revolutionary campaign,” a campaign the likes of which we never have seen and which Sarah has spent about three years envisioning and amending as conditions changed.

It sure was a 'revolutionary campaign', and she never left her job at FNC either... LOL.

You forgot a step, the formal secession from the USA by the 22 right-to-work states. Then you can have a Civil War if the new socialist democratic states (SDSA) wants one.

I’m no Newt fan. So what? I’m not getting on the Newt train unless he’s the nominee. Until then, I’ll go with the one who imo has the best chance of winning in the general. I don’t give a fig about who endorses who.
