  • Governor Palin's Tax Plan: Simply Genius

    It's been a long while since I posted at FR, so bear with me please. There has not been sufficient discussion about Governor Palin's superb tax policy she announced in Iowa this past weekend. So, before the other campaigns try to co-opt it, I think it's necessary to put our pro-Palin stake in the ground. Current Situation - As we are all well aware, the high unemployment is plainly nasty and long-standing. Much as President Obama would like any of several of his targets to take the blame for the economic fix we are in, it is his name that...

    Sarah Palin revved up a crowd of about 2,000 at a tea party rally here, telling them just about everything they wanted to hear — except that she was getting into the presidential race. Instead, the Palin supporters who came from all over the U.S. wearing “Palin 2012” T-shirts and buttons got an intensely political speech from the former Alaska governor that scorched President Barack Obama and the “permanent political class” of both parties. She slung an attack at the Republican candidates who “raise mammoth amounts of cash,” saying, “we need to ask them, too: What, if anything, do their...

    Sarah Palin​ did not announce whether she would enter the 2012 presidential contest in a fiery and substantive speech in Iowa on Saturday, but she did make three more significant announcements that, in the long run, will potentially be more important than a potential future announcement date. First, as part of a five point plan to revive America’s economy, Palin called for the elimination of the federal corporate income tax as a way to “break the back of crony capitalism.” Her reasons for eliminating the federal corporate income tax, though, were more important than the actual proposal because it was...

    While watching Sarah Palin's speech yesterday at Indianola, it occurred to me that she is beloved by her supporters and detested and feared by her enemies for at least one common reason: She is an extraordinary political talent, willing and able to call a spade a spade and to do so with a combination of moxie and panache that is both devastating and funny. She represents a clear and present danger both to the GOP Establishment and to the Democrat left, the two sides of the same false coin which has embedded itself in D.C. as the "Permanent Political Class"....

    September 3, 2011The Fizzle In DrizzleAce Promising she was ready to have a "adult conversation" about the specifics of what needed to be done to right America, Palin set a marker for herself: "It requires deeds not words, it's not enough for politicians to throw around some vague generalities..." And then went on to speak in... vague generalities. (Note: All quotes were taken directly as she spoke, and might not be completely word-for-word accurate.) Her five point plan could have been taken from just about any candidates' Standard Stump Speech, and I include Jon Huntsman when I say "any candidate."...

    September 3, 2011 Palin Rails Against ‘Crony Capitalism’ and ‘Career Politicians’ By JEFF ZELENY INDIANOLA, Iowa — Sarah Palin did not say whether she would seek the Republican presidential nomination, but she made clear during a speech here on Saturday that she has no intentions of simply falling into line behind one of the party’s leading candidates. At times she sounded like a candidate. At times she did not. But in a 40-minute speech before a Tea Party rally here, which was one of her most expansive addresses since she accepted the Republican vice presidential nomination three years ago, she...

    Enjoy. (VIDEO AT LINK) Here are a few early reports coming out of Iowa: Alex Pappas at the Daily Caller: The former Republican governor of Alaska and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee referenced the 2012 election many times throughout her remarks, calling out the “permanent political class,” “crony capitalism” and “entrenched political interests.” “The reality is we are governed by a permanent political class,” Palin said to applause from a rain-soaked audience in Indianola, “until we change that.” The crowd at the Tea Party for America’s “Restoring America” event ate it up. She was interrupted during her speech to chants...

    Palin Watch Continues: No Announcement In Iowa Speech By Robin Abcarian Los Angeles Times September 3, 2011 Reporting from Indianola, Iowa— Sarah Palin did not announce a presidential candidacy Saturday in her speech to the Tea Party of America. Instead, she hit the usual "tea party" high notes about the dangers of a second Obama term and the perilous financial situation the country faces. But in addition to those familiar themes, she also unleashed a high spirited attack on “corporate crony capitalism” and the “permanent political class.” It was not lost on the crowd of about 2,000 that a certain...

    Former Governor Sarah Palin gave the keynote speech at a Tea Party rally in Indianola, Iowa on Saturday afternoon. "We sent a new class of leaders to DC, but immediately the permanent political class, they tried to co-opt them. Because the reality is we are governed by a permanent political class, until we change that," Palin said about career politicians. "They talk about massive, unsustainable debt and yet they keep incurring more. They spend, they print, they borrow, they spend more, and they stick us with the bill. Then they pat their own backs and they claim that they faced...

    INDIANOLA, Iowa (AP) — Cheers of "Run Sarah, Run" greeted Sarah Palin at a tea party rally in Iowa, but the former Alaska governor still isn't saying whether she's going to jump into the 2012 presidential race.Palin did have harsh words Saturday for President Barack Obama and the direction that she says the country has taken in his first term.She says "America is hurting" and at "a tipping point" due to "failed policies and incompetent leadership."The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee says the crisis runs deeper than the fear of double-dip recession or "the shame of a credit downgrade."She says this crisis "will relentlessly...

    Sarah Palin said it is important whom Republicans choose to run against President Obama, but didn’t directly address whether she’ll join the 2012 presidential race during her much-anticipated speech before a tea party crowd in Iowa on Saturday. The former Republican governor of Alaska and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee referenced the 2012 election many times throughout her remarks, calling out the “permanent political class,” “crony capitalism” and “entrenched political interests.”

    INDIANOLA, Iowa -- Sarah Palin still isn't a candidate, but in an aggressive bid to lay down her marker in the 2012 Republican presidential race, she delivered a speech here Saturday that was as confrontational toward the Republican establishment as it was aimed at President Obama. Despite her high-profile endorsement of Rick Perry during his 2010 gubernatorial primary fight, Palin used thinly veiled language to leave little doubt that she sees the Texas governor and national front-runner for the Republican nomination as part of the problem. “Some GOP candidates, they also raise mammoth amounts of cash,” Palin said. “We need...

    International Business Times ^ | September 3, 2011
    In front of a wildly supportive crowd of Tea Party members at a rally in Indianola, Iowa, Sarah Palin said that the U.S. is now at a “tipping point.” While didn’t explicitly announce her candidacy for the 2012 Presidential race, observers at the Des Moines Register who covered the event said Palin’s comments sounded like a campaign speech. “Iowa you are good people,” Palin said. “We’re here because America is at a tipping point. America faces a crisis, and it’s not a crisis like perhaps a Midwest summer storm that moves in and hits hard, but then moves on.” When...
