Sarah Palin takes the initiative
The Hill ^ | 08/22/12 08:23 AM ET | By Bernie Quigley

Posted on 08/22/2012 11:35:56 PM PDT by onyx

It was an error for the Republicans to bring in New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as the key speaker at their convention. While all of the excitement and adventure in politics in the last three years has been among conservatives, Christie is the great, faithless bet against conservatives’ future and a futile attempt to institutionalize the past. At CPAC events these last three years, up to 40 percent of young conservatives yearned for Ron Paul and Judge Andrew Napolitano; STATES’ RIGHTS, SOUND MONEY AND CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT. The other 60 percent — the National Review crowd, the neocons, the Bush apparatus, the entire Eastern Conservative Establishment — could think only of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. Christie is their front man, as animated and clownish as a carny barker at the Dixie Classic. Going into the future, conservatives hold all the cards. But they chose the past. Obviously, they should have chosen former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as their lead speaker.

Sarah Palin told Greta Van Susteren on Fox last night that she would support a third-party run in Missouri. Not by accident this announcement comes as the Republican convention opens in Tampa, Fla. Like Romney, she misses nothing. Since Palin — and she was the first — came to the aid of Doug Hoffman in NY-23 in 2009, there has been a positive division in conservatism, which will grow and mature in our century. She is the natural leader of this new direction. In time we will see current economic liberalism disappear entirely. It lost its essential economic purpose when large-scale manufacturing left America and America became a place of smaller businesses. It left Democrats with only the most ephemeral lifestyle and cultural issues.

This shift in economy brings a maturity of economic purpose and is a historic shift. If the last century and a half was represented as a proxy fight between Marx and Keynes, the next in America will be between Keynes and Hayek. Two or three years ago at the CPAC events, the Hayek direction — Ron Paul, Judge Napolitano, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Sarah Palin — took the initiative. Chris Christie’s trickster dance in Tampa will not send it away. If Obama wins this year, Palin will lead (against Christie/Bush) in the Republican primary in 2016. If Romney wins and yields to the tradition (which he will because his life is stuck in 1972) Palin will bring a challenge.

Key here is we are at a generational shift as large and vital as that of the ’60s, but it is a conservative shift. They just didn’t get the memo yet in Tampa.

Go Sarah!

A real conservative who knows how to win. She’s got 2010 to prove it.

Hope she’s on the phone with David Limbaugh.

The writer is right about Chris Christie. Unfortunately Palin is wrong about a third party bid in Missouri. While I think Akin needs to go, advocating a third party bid by Sarah Steelman is misguided. We’ve seen what third party bids garner. In addition Steelman is reportedly very squishy on Conservatism.

As for Palin being the leading opposition to Bush/Christie in 2016, a whole lot of people were saying she would be the leading opposition to Romney in 2012. We don’t know what Palin is going to do in 2016.

If past indicators mean anything at all, neither does she.

I think you’re right. Romney and the GOP-E are ignoring her, to their own peril. The idiots have yet to realize they need her voters, like us.

Quite apparently or even obviously, the GOP-E committed itself to Romney early on which meant no money for Palin or anyone else in 2012. It was his turn, after all.

I have little doubt that should he win, she will be all over him like stink on _hit, every time he strays. She made it very obvious that he was her least favorite during the primary season.

Until this election's outcome is known, I'm sure Sarah Palin has no idea about her 2016 plans, let alone us or this writer!

Regarding MO, I think that guy, Akin will eventually drop out, and from what I've read, none of the primary challengers are eligible to run: (sore loser law). A brand new candidate would have to be selected.

I'm not convinced that if Palin had won the primaries, the GOPe wouldn't have supported her candidacy.

I have little doubt that should he win, she will be all over him like stink on _hit, every time he strays. She made it very obvious that he was her least favorite during the primary season.

Yes, but Sarah herself strays.  That's why I cannot support her.  She did a radio interview several years ago where she basically proceeded to describe a plan where she would register illegal aliens so they could stay here and work.  Now Obama has only opened that opporunity to a portion of the illegals, and folks here are upset about it.   I don't want Obama or her to do it.  What is she going to do when Romney announces his plan to do it?  Take him to task?  She can't.

Until this election's outcome is known, I'm sure Sarah Palin has no idea about her 2016 plans, let alone us or this writer!

Okay, then talk about her 2016 plans are premature aren't they.  We agree on that.  The writer of this article made some claims that he/she shouldn't have.

Regarding MO, I think that guy, Akin will eventually drop out, and from what I've read, none of the primary challengers are eligible to run: (sore loser law). A brand new candidate would have to be selected.


I personally hope he does.  I know a lot of folks disagree.  A new person may need to be floated.  I have read some of the things you have, and it looks like that will have to come to pass.  If so, perhaps Palin can join with others and get that person major attention.






Thanks to those of you who have helped contribute 94% towards the goal.  If you haven't already, please click below and pencil yourself in.

The linked article states, “In time we will see current economic liberalism disappear entirely” because economic changes have “left Democrats with only the most ephemeral lifestyle and cultural issues.”

That won’t happen anytime soon. Regardless of who wins this year, 2016 will see liberals urging higher taxes on the rich and conservatives urging entitlement reform and spending cuts. The only difference will be that, if Romney wins, Republicans in Congress will be more muted about their conservatism, because they’ll follow party loyalty and not criticize the Romney administration.

As for Sarah, she might run if Romney loses this year. Given that she didn’t run this year, in an open race, I can’t see her challenging a Republican incumbent.

Dearest D-1, you’re hung up on an interview she did when she was McCain’s VP. She’s talked several times since then and each time she’s been emphatic: deport illegals. She’s backs AZ Governor Brewer entirely and serves with her on a dual committee they both started together. I’m sure you know she owns a home in AZ.

Thank you very much for your faithful reminders for our FReepathon. God bless and keep you.

Is there a person in Missouri that is similar to Lisa Murkowski? Murkowski had high visibility going in. If I remember accurately, she’s not exactly our first choice either.

I’m not on board with Romney. Not yet anyway. I remain praying for His guidance, so I’m not the proper person to talk to about sunshine and rosy outlooks, no matter which liar wins the election. All I’m certain about is that the Marxist hates America and if he’s reelected, he will destroy it whereas Romney doesn’t hate America, he just despises us TEA Party patriots, but “maybe” Paul Ryan can change his mind.

Should Romney win and turn out to be a big spending, over-reaching, government mandating RINO, I think he’ll be met with TEA Party challengers. Maybe a viable Third Party might be born.

Mark Levin interviewed Reince Priebus last night and asked him point blank about Palin speaking at the convention. He stated unequivocally that they offered her a prime time speaking slot, but they could never work out scheduling conflicts. Levin really pushed him on it, asking him if they offered her off-time slots, but he said no, it was during the 7:00PM-11:00PM time frame. Reince said, without question, they would love to have her speak, and they tried to work it out.

Taking him at his word, there was a genuine desire to accommodate her.

Shouldn’t we be talking about a SECOND party? The Democans and Republicrats are merely two factions of the one party system that prevails today. Conservatives are treated by the Republicrats in much the same way that Democans treat Jews and blacks - loyal voters who you ignore after the election.

You doubt that we have a one party system? In 2008, we got McLaim because it was his turn. He agreed with 0bambi on everything from immigration to the wars to not being Bush. OK, good Conservatives, hold your nose and vote for McLaim.

Now we have Romney because it is his turn. He agrees with 0bambi on health care, immigration, abortion yet he’s not 0bambi. OK, good Conservatives, hold your nose and vote for Romney.

Where does it end? If we continue to hold our noses and compromise our principles, it will end in totalitarianism. Once again, Sarah is correct. We need a Conservative SECOND party if we are to survive as a republic.

>> Sarah Palin told Greta Van Susteren on Fox last night that she would support a third-party run in Missouri.

I have a lot of respect for Sarah. I think this is a bad idea. Whatever happens must happen with cooperation from Akin.

Unless there’s some preexisting, underlying resentment, I would expect Palin to be more empathetic to Akin’s situation. Maybe women feel slighted by his remarks. If so, I’d like an explanation as to why.

“The idiots have yet to realize they need her voters, like us.”

I’m not so sure they’re idiots. Look at the push here at FR to get conservatives onto the willard wagon. The gop-e is doubling down on what has always been a safe bet in the past: that conservatives will slink back to vote for whatever crummy candidate the gop nominates. There will be a few holdouts like myself, but by and large I think it’ll hold true once again.

To: DoughtyOne; All

Palin didn’t say that third party was “the” solution. She was answering a hypothetical question of if Akin did not go just a few hours after the deadline, what were the possibilities. It was obvious she had not spoken to Steelman about it. If she had, she would have then known that any effort by Steelman at that time was not withing the law. She was throwing out hypothetical possibilities, not a definitive solution.

The main topic of the discussion was about Akin’s arrogance to think it was only the “legitimate rape” reference that got him in trouble. Sure it was the catalyst for all of the brouhaha but he went on digging the hole with his totally baseless claim of scientific and biological science. I’m sure the interviewers face took on a look of total surprise and Akin should have known he said something incorrectly but made no effort to correct his remarks then and only when it became a national issue did he finally say he made a mistake. The reality is that it took someone else to tell him that.

Palin, like so many of us were pissed to no end that the Democrats knew something about this guy and mounted a campaign to have their voters cross over to insure he was their challenger instead of either Steelman or Brunner. Adding insult to injury, a number of voters in one county decided it was more important to cross over and vote the Democrat ballot because of a local Sheriff’s race. Those potential votes were lost to the Republican primary as well. Yep, those OPEN PRIMARIES are just a friggin good idea, aren’t they?

So, when thinking out loud, faced with the immediate realization that this idiot was not going to quit and continue to dig the hole he was in, did the possibility of a third party effort not run through your mind to start shoveling the dirt in on this goof? It would have needed to be in order to find out the law does not permit it. I’m positive you did not drop everything in your life to rush out to read the statutes at that very moment.

One other factor that very few consider when contemplating the “what ifs” provided he actually can be granted a miracle and win against McCaskill. That is someone knew about his stances to the detail of having the interviewer ask the question and the Democrats to make an all out push to cross over to insure his victory which was not seen in any polls. Surely as there were these two that slipped out somewhere else, what else has this scientific expert uttered in the House Cloak Room that can be used to blackmail him into voting a certain way, totally counter to his record? How many will just make things up just to put him on the defensive and sway his vote as well?

Palin is a big picture thinker. Her anger at Akin was on only partial display and its effects shown as she was asked a hypothetical question at which she answered in a hypothetical way. I am sure she did what I did the next day and researched the laws of Missouri to realize, as we all did, that it was not going to happen for her chosen candidate in the race no matter what tact was considered.

To counter your assertion that Steelman is very squishy is a gross mischaraterization. She was just as “conservative” as Akin on the right to life issues and many other bedrock issues. Where she got into trouble was her voting record on tort reform where she voted against it while many believe she did so because her husband is a trial lawyer. By saying Palin supported a squishy it implies that you think Palin is supportive of squishy as well. Therein lies your true biaes not supported by fact and in essence just makes you another one of those PDSers.

Apparently you are unaware that in order to win you have to get people to vote for you. People did just that with McCain and Romney.

With McCain conservatives could not unite on an alternative same story with Romney. No conspiracies or plots were necessary.

Given that [Sarah Palin] didn’t run this year, in an open race, I can’t see her challenging a Republican incumbent.

Ronald Reagan did, twice.

So did Ted Kennedy.

So did Ross Perot, on the "You're a Rabbit" ticket.

And by the way, it wasn't an "open race" ..... huge efforts were exerted to keep her out (by lying to, and luring in, other conservatives who had no chance, to dry up the funding pool) ...... and they worked. Karl Rove must be very pleased with himself. Mitt Romney, too.

I didn't know that, FRiend. I knew McCaskill has made it clear she wants to continue to run against Akin -- not that he was a designated 'Rat fall guy.

And a Karl Rove potted plant to boot. Found that on a news show early yesterday morning. Hadn't heard it before, that Rove is Akin's money tree (so they said).

Reporters say a lot of things trying to stir the pot, the reality is McCaskill did mount a media campaign aimed specifically at getting conservatives to vote for Akin who was polling well behind Steelman and Brunner before election day ballots were counted. As McCaskill was essentially unopposed she was not worried about getting Democrats not in critical local elections to cross over and support his winning as well. It is a reality in open primary states.

Past indicators like mooCOWski in Alaska? Sarah knows what she is doing. If this third party challenge becomes a reality... I will send $$$$$ to help make it happen. It will be a winning ticket and the winner will caucus with the gop and the gop will probably finance the run... they found ways to do so in Alaska to help mooCOWski. Turnabout is fair play... and it puts the progressives in the leadership on notice.

Scheduling conflict for a National Stage at the GOP Convention??? Maybe she needs to straighten out her sock drawer that night.

The GOP has pushed the same "good ole boy" at us every election.

There is definitely some bad blood there, of Romney's making I should add, and now he is paying the price of her support. This probably makes the GOPe very excited as they hate exuberant conservatism.

I somehow see a divine intervention at work here, to me Isaac is being sent as a reminder that no man is a god no matter how high his pedestal is. And that the RNC should offer Sarah Palin a speaking spot, perhaps then Isaac will divert elsewhere.

Sarah Palin...would support a third-party run in Missouri...this is a bad idea. Whatever happens must happen with cooperation from Akin.

How about a third party run and Akin drops out?
