PALIN TO HIT THE ROAD Thur May 26 2011

Sarah Palin will hit the road this Memorial Day weekend on a tour of the Northeast -- with a stop in New Hampshire -- aboard a red, white and blue bus emblazoned with the words: "One Nation Under God, Indivisible, With Liberty & Justice For All."

Watch the day she announces. They’ve shown it all along. And she is not going to play by their rules and the crowds she draws has them rightfully panicked.

"One Nation" as a major part of the theme is brilliant political strategy. See, it's not just part of the Pledge of Allegiance, but it's a direct slapdown of O's and Dem's plans to call all opposition to him racist. They are trying to divide, while Sarah will just steamroll that plan and emphasize that we are "one nation" -- and who can argue with that phrase?

Just imagine the speeches that will center around these themes that you see on the bus -- message discipline will weave these themes into her campaign again and again until the difference is apparent to all: she sees these founding documents as a true foundation for the country, and she'll be able to prove that O doesn't, through pointing out his record and divisive rhetoric. Game On!

If not live, document everything. Camcorder, tape recorder, whatever. Have someone document it for her so they can provide her with evidence of what was actually said. Another shot at the media and the way they go about things as they will be part of the enemy’s campaign. I say, document everything with them.

Wasn't watching it when they panned the audience for this Tuesday .. ;)

Palin clan at "Dancing With the Stars" finale

Remember Boogate 2010? In October “Dancing With the Stars” viewers wondered if the live audience booed Sarah Palin the first time she came to see her daughter Bristol dance.

Turned out there was no Bronx cheer then, and Palin is still happy to support the show. For the season 12 “DWTS” results show Tuesday, Sarah, Todd and Bristol Palin sat prominently in the audience to watch NFL star Hines Ward nab the mirror ball trophy.

Before the appearance, Palin tweeted Monday: “Tumultuous world gotcha' flummoxed? Divert w/tuning 2 unifying, sweet competition; Dancing w/the Stars TEAM BALLAS competes in finals tonite.” Dance pro Mark Ballas was Bristol’s partner last season and was paired up with Chelsea Kane this time around.

When Bristol competed and made it to the finals, the show’s ratings went through the roof. But it turns out that the show doesn’t need a political celebrity to succeed. This season was the most-watched ever for “DWTS.”

~~~~~~~~

Typical Politico Palin slam at the end . . they never fail.

California is a waste of time, period. You need to escape. The best anyone in CA can do for her is raise money because it is a waste of her time to spend time in that cesspool. You have to know that as much as you’d want to see her.

Interesting that her allegedly ‘disastrous’ interviews come down to the Bush doctrine and what newspapers she reads. It’s the great myth. She needs to avoid the editing with them this time and document it herself.

While others are rolling out “exploratory committees”

It's funny that one of the first stories on this bus tour today raised the idea that perhaps she was moving closer to forming an exploratory committee. That reporter (whoever it was -- can't remember where I read it) has NO CLUE whatsoever.

She's already said weeks ago in response to a question about forming an exploratory, that she'll be running an unconventional campaign if she runs. That means she's not getting ready to announce an exploratory committee -- she's just going to announced that she's running. Game On!

I’ll go with her apparent unfamiliarity with the Bush Doctrine with Charlie Gibson, for starters.

Seriously? In that interview she demonstrated that she understood the Bush Doctrine - and Gibson demonstrated that he didn't.

“But it turns out that the show doesn’t need a political celebrity to succeed. This season was the most-watched ever for “DWTS.” “

They didn’t mention that DWTS was concerned that all the scientologists were voting for Kirsty. Maybe that is why their ratings were so high this time.

If Palin see’s value in Mitt, I’d have to re-evaluate my opinion of her judgement.....thankfully, I don’t think that will be the case.

All her site says is:

This Sunday, May 29th, Governor Palin and the SarahPAC team will begin a trip through our nation’s rich historical sites, starting from Washington, DC and going up through New England. The “One Nation Tour” is part of our new campaign to educate and energize Americans about our nation’s founding principles, in order to promote the Fundamental Restoration of America.

It is not a declaration of candidacy .. yet. I think she may well run in 2016 if Obama wins. Otherwise I still think she is in it to support other candidates.

The liberal mind is incapable of understanding her appeal, and the appeal of the values and ideals she speaks to.

The left always is quick to point out hypocrisy, and if you have no values or standards then you can't be a hypocrite by violating them!

Don’t forget Sarah Louise was a journalism major at University of Idaho. She knows the system and can handle the snippy variety of MSM geniuses just fine. And remember she can get a piece of FOX, for nothing, anytime she needs to. Whether she actually runs or just wants to be a Mama grizzly in the campaign it’s gonna be fun to watch.

This is precisely why Sarah Palin will win the nomination and ultimately the Presidency. There are still more of us than them.

The "them" you speak of have failed to grasp what it means to be an American, the freedom that comes with it, and the laws instituted to protect said freedom.

The individual is the 'unit' of freedom that must be protected at all cost and yet, hasn't been due to concerns 'for the many'.

"With liberty, and justice, for all" is the standard we must strive to achieve without special consideration for women, blacks, latinos, etc. If we protect the individual's rights, everyone's are protected. If we single-out groups for special treatment, others are denied.

A significant part of this country's ills stem from this type of thinking. Separated by race, by gender, by income, we've balkanized ourselves into something certainly non-American. The left has capitalized on this technique. Our courts re-inforce it (wise Latina?) by affirming actions to up-lift minorities over others in education and employment.

To be American is to be fair to everyone. To be a leftist American is to be fairer to some group or another. That is the "them" that you speak of and hopefully, they'll not be able to defeat Sarah in this next go-around (should she decide to run).

I'm not proud to count "them" as my 'brother', anymore than I would those who'd willingly seek to burn my house down. This country's foundation on the principle that all are created equal ought not be attacked similarly. Those that do are arsonists- social and political arsonists in my mind. They not only tear at the fabric of America, they set fire to it and have done so for many years.

The "them" you speak of are free to be themselves. Such is the nature of freedom. However, it comes at a cost to the rest of us. But, I don't know if I can afford it any longer. I'm spent, tapped-out, and just wish it weren't another expense I have to incur.

Memorial Day weekend is busy for me, but I confess, each time I see Air Force jets perform the Missing Man formation I well-up with emotion and fight back tears. My dad (West Point grad, B-17 squadron commander) comes to mind each time, as well as all of those who fought for and died for this country. We owe it to them to 'unite', to put that missing-man back into formation and push ourselves toward a prosperity and freedom that those who made the biggest sacrifice would be proud.

My prayer would be, that those on the Left and their interest groups might someday become assimilated- to honor that which gives them the freedom to dissent, but ask only that, at the end of the day, they remain American. Nothing more, nothing less. If we share a fox-hole, then let's share it with pride. Our pride in being American and our pride in being free. There are a lot of forces gunning for us and coming from every direction. I'll have your back if you'll have mine. Fair?

The 'left' will never assimilate. What our culture has been turned into is precisely what they intended to do all along. And because they want to rule us it has been necessary to create divisions within our society; it has generally worked because while they were dividing, they were using guilt to advance their agenda. None of the laws were intended to be fair or to equalize the field. They were passed in order to increase control.

I believe people are waking up more and more. And Palin (if she should run) is going to be the true uniter of 'all'.

The left and the elitists from the Republican party do not want anything to change because their goals are the same.

Like you, I do not consider the 'left' or anyone who subscribes to that philosphy to be my brother or even my fellow american. They are enemies and they declared war on this nation when Obama was elected. However, there are many that regret that (so I've read) and even if there is a third that regrets the decision, and votes the right way, we will once again have a free nation. It will take a long time to undo what's been done, but if we have liberty, anything can be achieved.

If not for my faith in God, I couldn't handle anything. It's difficult enough as a believer but I can't imagine trying to go through these days without knowing His hand is in all things.

I also become very emotional when I see those things you spoke about and when I hear the National Anthem and so forth. America, our beloved nation, has been under siege for a very long time but there is still hope as long as you, and I and millions of others are still breathing.

Enjoy your weekend.

RE: “The liberals will hyperventilate about Sarah Palin and her bus tour.”

*************

Agree, even if Sarah Palin does NOT get into the race it will drive the left insane to have here out there on the open road with her bus. There are so many contenders in our camp, some in, some out, some not yet announced one way or the other. Then there’s the Donald, possibly back IN?

What’s a leftist to think? How do they go after and try to dish dirt on so many at once??? I LOVE it!

RE: “Palin/Ryan 2012

I think this bus tour is a test — not a full campaign yet. She is going to see if she can change the poll numbers by focusing more national attention on her candidacy. If the poll numbers move into winning territory, she will run. If not, she will have focused the primaries to a few candidates and will support one that closely matches her positions. If that person runs, she will take on a cabinet role, probably in Energy or Commerce.

She cannot afford to lose twice.”

**************

Best post of ‘em all -— right on the money — this is a ‘test.’ I don’t think even Palin herself knows if she is going to run or not. Patience, folks, patience -——
