Sarah On Their Minds

0 Shares
Sarah Palin

For someone the Democrats have declared irrelevant, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin seems to be surprisingly relevant. According to the left, Palin hasn’t been a real factor since 2008. Yet every time she so much as makes a run to the grocery store, liberals scrutinize her behavior like disgraced Internal Revenue Service thug Lois Lerner reading Tea Party tax returns.

While conservatives, many of whom genuinely like Palin, invite her to break bread with them at various functions, liberals whine about her near omnipresence — all while fawning like groupies in an effort to entice her as an interview subject. I’d suggest the quest for ratings and subsequent advertising dollars drives them to seek out Palin the way lepers sought out Mother Teresa; but no self-respecting liberal would be in it just for the money and fame, right?

Monday morning, Palin graced the studios of NBC’s “Today Show,” where Matt Lauer attempted to press her on Obamacare — something Lauer’s fellow NBC talking head Chuck Todd was either unwilling or unable to do to President Barack Obama last Thursday. Of course, Lauer may be bright enough to know Palin equals ratings; but he’s clearly not bright enough to have learned Palin equals smarter than the women who make MSNBC such a ratings “success.” Palin dispensed with Lauer as easily as Michael Moore dispenses with anything coated in powdered sugar.

People who are being told today if you — and some of them are still being told — “Well, if you like that insurance policy and that coverage, you still will be able to keep it. It’s just going to cost you a little bit more.” That’s the point, if it’s going to cost you more, then it’s not the same policy.

If NBC, which is as redoubtable a Barack Obama Administration mouthpiece as White House press secretary Jay Carney, thought Palin’s views were worth their airtime, logic would dictate that the unbathed liberal masses would concur. Unfortunately, logic and liberalism collide as often as MSNBC and decent ratings. Yet the perfectly named left-wing hate speech blog Talking Points Memo reacted to Palin’s entirely accurate remarks about the lies Obama told to keep his train wreck on the rails by changing the subject.

When asked by Matt Lauer about her alternative plan, Palin gave a rambling answer that echoed her infamous 2008 interview with Katie Couric, in which the former Republican vice presidential nominee awkwardly struggled to name a newspaper or magazine she often read.

Lauer invited her to talk about Obamacare’s face-plant, and the liberals come up with: Palin is stupid, because… um… 2008!

Part of the left’s assaults against Palin stem from the same misogyny that has defined the Democrats for as long as Democrats have skittered across the fruited plains. These guys really don’t like women who don’t do what they’re told. They also seem to have a problem with women who look like women, but that’s a conversation for another day. Their attacks on Palin are virtually reflexive. Every time she speaks, Bill Maher’s staff gets jumpy. In fact, anytime any conservative woman raises her flag, the Democrats’ hate machine redlines its tachometer.

But part of this latest assault on Palin stems from the Democrats’ increasing desperation over the implosion of Obamacare. Keeping in mind that the Democrats consider politics vastly more important than everything, up to and including life itself, any dissent represents a commensurately grave threat. When someone like Palin takes to the airwaves to voice her discontent with Obama’s train wreck of a power grab, liberals go apoplectic.

To be honest, I don’t think Palin should run for President in 2016 for a number of reasons — among them, her own safety. From the so-called “Occupy” riots to pretty much anything involving more than one union thug, the Democrats have demonstrated a propensity for violence at the drop of Carlos Danger’s zipper. Combine their lack of compunction with the white-hot rage that Palin still inspires more than half a decade since they first declared her “irrelevant,” and you’ve got a perfect environment for some loon in a “Che’” T-shirt to trade his life for a week’s worth of admiring references on Ivy League professors’ Twitter feeds. They’re pressing a $2 trillion fraud, something for which non-Democrats risk serious prison time; and they’ve already attacked her children more than once. I doubt they’d hesitate to push one of their followers over the line between “foaming at the mouth with anti-Palin hate” and Mumia Abu-Jamal.

    I see nothing gained by attacking Sarah. It serves no meaningful purpose what so ever. I would like to see those that do, stop and give her all the rope she needs.

    • Dirty Daug

      Yes, the rope she needs is to hang the Liberals.

    • Muffin Man Mashinksy

      Palin is a sharp cookie, a quick read, a real leader & winner & a DC outsider with no PC BS lies in her & has more balls than 99% of our pols…she would make a great prez…..she would be a breath of fresh air, not another Ivy Leaguer LOONY TUNES LIB or RINO/CINO willing & able to destroy our Republic…she would take that rope & fashion a lifeline for us!!

      The same paradigm exists amongst the LOONY TUNES LIBs regarding blacks who can think for themselves..what would they try to do to Dr. Ben Carson?

      Ah, Carson & Palin…my dream ticket!!

      • Jerry Johnston

        My dream ticket would be Palin running with Rand Paul

        • Muffin Man Mashinksy

          Sounds good to me, too!!

  • Dirty Daug

    Why do you think the Democrat liberals attack Palin or watch her very close. Mostly because they never want her as President. She would destroy the Democrat Liberals that’s why. Most Americans who know or have heard Palin talk know this. With the way the Democrats have been running this country I think they deserve being destroyed. But will she run for President and the answer is NO because the Democrats would make her life so miserable that it would not be worth the effort for her. Besides we know Obama won by voter fraud and we would really see voter fraud if Palin was to run.

    • Robbie

      Do you have any actual evidence of voter fraud? Or do you simply find it hard to cope with the smart black guy in office?

      • http://batman-news.com rwm44

        sorry robbie but there is no smart black guy in office and yes we all know there was voter fraud how can some districts have over 100% votes going to oVOMIT

        • WTS/JAY

          Actually, Obama is as smart as a Fox, but with the morals of a Hyena.

          • Jerry Johnston

            I don’t even think his morals are as high as a Hyena’s.

          • $24100174

            I think he is as smart as a SNAKE….ZERO morals!!

        • Robbie

          We don’t all know that there was voter fraud. And “some districts have over 100% votes”. That’s nonsense. NONSENSE. Where do you get this crap? Of course if you can name one we could all have a look see. I doubt you’ll supply this “information”.

          • ChiefBoring

            Robbie, please back up and see Mr. Livingston’s reply to you, listing several links. And the lady from Chicago who voted at least six times was on TV bragging about it. She saw nothing wrong with it. And remember the two black panthers intimidating voters in PA. Holder refused to indict them. Please get your head out of the sand and look around you.

          • Robbie

            Obviously there will be cases of individuals cheating in one way or another at the polling stations. And that would happen by voters who favour either side. I’m sure you could find as many dead Republicans. This is not the fault of those in charge. Real voter fraud is when those running – or their party – try to manipulate the votes. Actually, when you think about it – it was the Republicans in a number of states who tried various schemes to prevent folks from voting. Obama won anyway but the GOP folks sure tried to use fraudulent methods to keep others from voting.

        • Jerry Johnston

          Make no mistake here. Obumba is smart as a fox. He is just aimed at something most people don’t understand. The ruination of the American Way. He is killing America from within, and doing a splendid job of it. He MUST go!

        • $24100174

          You know very well that smart little man.. “Didn’t get up there by himself. He doesn’t belong up there.
          He doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there. He elevated beyond his ability to function. And you just wonder what kind of dumb @#&%# put him up there to begin with.” Now we know he’s not as smart as you think he is.

        • Jack

          RWM44:

          Could it be that those few precincts that voted 100% for Obama were inner city precincts where 100% of the voters were black?

          Could it be that those few precincts that voted 100% for Romney were rural precincts were 100% of the voters were white?

          Simply because a candidate gets 100% of the vote in a precinct doesn’t mean there was any voter fraud.

          • http://batman-news.com rwm44

            jacka$$ 100% votes for either is impossible even in inner cities .mypoint is how can oVOMIT get over 100% of registered voters to vote

          • Jack

            rwm44:

            Well you sure make it clear that you are not capable of responding to a comment without proving to the world that you act and think with the maturity of a five year old.

            What the discussion was about is that 100% of the people who voted, voted for a single person be that Obama or Romney. No one said anything about 100% of the registered voters in a precinct actually voting Nonetheless I am sure that in a few small precincts around the nation there were at least a few in which every registered voter voted.

            You might not like it but getting 100% of the vote in a precinct is not only possible it happened without any voter fraud in 2012 and in other elections also.

          The first link is more election fraud to get both democratic candidates on the state of Indiana primary ballot. Fox news seemed to be the only media that reported it as some 30 links all refer back to Fox News source.

          the second link, ~ I one voter found guilty of voting for other people. “A former Ohio poll worker on Wednesday was sentenced to five years in prison for voting illegally on behalf of other people, including a comatose relative.
          Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Robert Ruehlman handed down the sentence to Melowese Richardson, 58, of Madisonville, two months after she pleaded no contest to four counts of illegal voting and subsequently was found guilty.”

          The third is commentary,employs the events surrounding ACORN as support and numbers that may or may not be accurate to foster concerns.

          Voter fraud greatly concerns me Mr. Livingston. For if we can’t have some trust in out election process ~ we doomed.

          I was not attempting to disprove you but to understand the significance of this claim of voter fraud.

          All of us should stay alert that it does happen while I’ve yet to see anything that might hold sway to the out come of an election. ~ i find some comfort it that.

          i couldn’t get the last link to pull up.

            Dear Deerinwater,

            See my response to Jack.

            Best wishes,
            Bob

        • Jack

          Bob:

          If these are the best “evidence” that you could come up with regarding voter fraud then you should just admit to yourself and the people who post on PLD that there was no real voter fraud problem.

          One person who voted 6 times and four people who voted twice each – that sure is massive voter fraud that turned elections.

          How is Petition fraud voter fraud since there was no voting involved? What does a meaningless article about an Acorn voter registration drive in 2008 prove about voter fraud? Nothing..

          The three stories of how Obama won in Ohio, Florida, etc. by voter fraud have all been debunked. Nothing came of the claims of voter fraud made by the Republican poll watcher in Virginia so those claims have to be questioned especially since she didn’t say anything about them until four days after the election.

          The one thing that has amazed me is that almost all of the claims of voter fraud are for things that supposedly occurred in states such as Ohio, Florida, Penn., Texas and Virginia where the Republicans were in control of the voting (secretaries of state), the governorships, the legislatures and almost all of the attorney generalships. Despite almost total control, these Republicans let Obama win the election and never pursued prosecution of the massive voter fraud that you righties claimed occurred.

          I wish one of you could explain to me how that could have happened?

          • http://personalliberty.com/ Bob Livingston

            Dear Jack,

            This post was in response to Robbie’s ridiculous intimation that there was no evidence of voter fraud. I spent about 90 seconds to find a few links as a rebuttal. It was not intended to be an exhaustive study.

            You write: “Despite almost total control, these Republicans let Obama win the election and never pursued prosecution of the massive voter fraud that you righties claimed occurred.” The moneyed elites intended for Obama to win the election. That is why there was never any “prosecution of the massive voter fraud.” However, there is evidence aplenty it occurred for anyone who chooses to seek it. It never mattered because the outcome was the one sought by the globalists. In truth, the vote has not mattered for many years.

            Best wishes,
            Bob

          • Jack

            Bob:

            So you are saying that the moneyed elites totally control Republican politicians and that’s why massive voter fraud is not prosecuted. Sounds like you are saying that people should never vote for a Republican because all they will do is whatever the rich tell them to do. You are probably right on that point.

            There are plenty of claims of massive voter fraud but if you actually take the time to research the claims – and don’t just believe them because they appear on some right wing blog,publication or program or on Fox – you will find that there is never any real merit to the claims.

            Over some 6 years, President Bush made a massive effort to prove massive voter fraud existed spending in the process spending tens of millions of dollars and firing several Assistant Attorney Generals whom he did not believe were doing enough and what did he uncover – a little over 100 cases of “voter fraud” (mostly felons voting) out of more than 300 million votes cast.

            When I started hearing complaints about how Obama won due to voter fraud I investigated ever claim I learned of that had enough specific details to be able to research them. Every – not just some – but every one of them turned out to be bogus. In fact a couple of months ago someone posted a letter or email that they had received listing several of the false claims of voter fraud. I posted a response to each of the claims detailing exactly why and how they were wrong.

            Bob I suggest you do the same – investigate don’t just except something because some one else says it.

            By the way I first became aware of you and then PLD because of your writings on health issues. Your political writings are now casting doubts on you writings on health matters.

          • http://personalliberty.com/ Bob Livingston

            Dear Jack,

            You write: “So you are saying that the moneyed elites totally control Republican politicians and that’s why massive voter fraud is not prosecuted.” I’m saying the moneyed elites control all politicians and that’s why voter fraud is not prosecuted. Constitutional republican government passed away with the election of the tyrant Abraham Lincoln. Stealth, gradualism and propaganda caused the populace to accept that America is a democracy. Democracy is a euphemism for fascism. American democracy has the trappings of representative government but is fascism in reality. Call it benevolent totalitarianism. Banksters and corporate interests control the President and Congress and, therefore, control the workings of government.

            Best wishes,
            Bob

        Not only the 2012 Elections were stolen, but the 2008 Elections were stolen as well. And stolen twice: (1) the Democrats’ primary elections and (2) General election

How about you America?

    • Bill

      Hi Dirty,

      It was a multitude of things that got Obama elected. Obamas marketers that got him elected were marketing genius’s. There is an old saying in marketing that he who has the biggest list wins. With social media, the marketing to sell anything from hamburgers to presidents has changed.
      Just look at the demographics of the younger generation that grew up with computers while the baby boomers need an on staff 14 year to show them how to use the latest technological gadgets
      If you are going to market a product (or president), you first need to build your list. When you went to Obama’s website, it just said “join us for Hope and Change” with an email opt-in being the center of the web site. That gave you no other choice but to opt in or leave.
      When you went to Hillary’s or Romney’s site, there were many, many comments throughout the web site and the only opt that was asked for donations. Dumb, Dumb, Dumb. When a web site is too busy or too confusing, people leave
      So, Obamas email list grew extremely fast, it was marketed to in a smart manner and he won the election.
      Anyone that is not aware of this will lose any election they enter

      • Frank Kahn

        As a baby boomer, I resent your inaccurate assertion that I need some snot nosed teenager to help me navigate the internet. Your attempt to pigeon hole my generation is unacceptable. Also, that original, misleading website was a trap. It implied that you could learn more about Obama’s ideas if you just clicked the “IM IN” button. Then, without explaining that you would be added to their list of supporters, it forced you to enter your email address to see the information. WHICH WAS NEVER PRESENTED. It was, and still is, a marketing gimmick. It simply added you to a list of targets for their propaganda and donations. Yes, I will agree, it was a brilliant act of deception. It got millions of people into their database for receiving insane left wing drivel. And, I am sure that every, low intelligence, left wing supporter believes that a quick and painless diversion from reality is better than a site that gives you real information before asking you to donate.

        Then, for the last several months, I have been inundated with emails from their propaganda headquarters, telling me how good their idiotic, worthless and insane ideas need to be pushed onto the citizens of this nation. And, when I reply, and give them my real opinion (they are worthless idiots), they send me back a, computer generated, form letter style reply of “thank you for responding”.

        Yes, they are brilliant, they have made it easy to flood the internet with their socialistic ideology, using a computer to generate millions of emails from a database. But, the bottom line in every email is just another request for money to forward their cause.

        • Bill

          Don’t get your panties in a twist, Frank,
          I was speaking from a marketing standpoint and not political.
          Social media is here to stay and if any of our candidates want to compete with the progressives, they better get on the band wagon. Even Hilary did not understand the power of list building and an opt in page. Obama just ran right over her. It was not Obamas doing, It was because he hired the right marketers

          • Frank Kahn

            There was more than one objection to your original post. You might find that us old coots are more social media savvy than you think.

            I did some research on the overall definition of social media. I guess that you can stretch the definition to include the Obama I’m In site. But it is marginal at best.

            And, I will reiterate that the deceptive method of building their list was successful. But that does not make it honest or fully productive.

            Marketing is not what should determine the leadership of a nation. It is easy to sell something bad, to an unsuspecting set of customers, if you have the right marketing. You complained about the other sites having too many comments (information) included in the site. Whereas the Obama site was just a quick give us your email so we can add you to our list. To a low information voter, that might seem preferable, but to someone that is interested in facts and ideas, it is worthless.

            Also used in marketing (Obamacare) there is a concept of bait and switch (hope and change). This form of marketing paints a great picture of giving you something that everyone wants, then selling you something that you didnt want. Although it is effective, it is dishonest, and in most instances illegal.

            So, using social media to get out your ideas, is a good thing, but it is only good if the information presented is accurate. I use, and talk with many people on, Facebook. Although this is a great way to learn new opinions and meet people, it is not always a good way to discover true facts. So, using social media for the sake of learning the truth about a candidate is limited. You must always vet the information being given.

            Although using it would help get out the ideas of the republicans, it will not solve their problem with communication. What they need to learn is how to explain their beliefs and policies in a way that gives people a positive opinion of where they will take them. Tying to sell yourself based on the doom and gloom of the oppositions policies will not win an election. You need to give the people a better option. A view of how your policies will make life better.

          • Bill

            There you go again, Frank
            Getting your panties in a twist over things you assume I meant and not over what I said.
            I am probably as old as you, but I understand how marketing works. Marketing is neither good nor bad, political or non political, it just is.

        • Robert Messmer

          Thank you for your sacrifice. But one has to wonder how many more or our generation, clicked the “iM IN” button and wound up believing the garbage they received. Which tends to lend credibility to Bill’s assertion.

      well, certainly she is a very attractive lady for sure. She’s a very pretty woman but that’s not exactly the way you go about creating a winning team in this arena. I’m not sure how her beauty could be seen as inciting anger.

      It sort of annoying that people’s judgement could be clouded by her beauty and wish install her into the most powerful position any person can hold today because she is pretty. ~ It makes you wonder about people and our system.

      But I tend to have faith in our election process and will accept it’s final results. ~ whatever it may be.

      If you would like for Ms. Palin to be your President, ~ I think that you should support her to the bitter end and accept whatever the out come may be.

      myself, ~ I always thought Ms. Bachmann was “hot”, ~ I tend favor little fire crackers.

      You say that ” Sarah is HOT”!!! and that is something that we can agree on. But that is where the rubber hits the road and the most powerful person on the face of the planet has to be one of the smarter people on the face of the planet.

      It’s been quite a while since the American people had such a person hold the office of the presidency. Palin has to be one of the most shallow and superficial people to ever run for President, she made “W” come off as a genius and lowered the bar to an all time low.

      • Bill

        She is a genius compared to your Obama
        All of your comments are just your opinion and not facts

          Now, now Willie,
          “She is a genius compared to your Obama”.

          First things fist Willie, Obama is not mine. I did not vote for him.

          “All of your comments are just your opinion and not facts”

          That statement is partially true. But if I said the sun will rise in the east and set in the west, that would be a fact as well.

          Sounds to me like you might be a bit Ga-Ga over Palin and I am happy for you there buddy. But at the end of the day, she has the common sense of a kumquat and her IQ is not that far behind.

          Did I say the sun will rise in the east tomorrow morning Willie?

          • Bill

            Bobby
            I did not say that I backed her, all I said was that she is hot. You made up the rest. Who do you back for president?

          • Bob666

            This election up coming or the last?

          • Bill

            All

            Willie,
            I belonged to the GOP until Reagan’s second term and voted mostly republican. I became an independent (since in Florida, your voting options are limited) and have continued to vote mostly republican.

            I vote for the person, not the party. I was going to vote for McCain until he picked the pin-headed bimbo as a running mate. So it was Barr-Root (might not have voted for Root if I had been on this web site before that election) in 2008 and Johnson -Gray in 2012.

            Did I destroy your perception?

          • Daniel F. Melton

            ***might not have voted for Root if I had been on this web site before that election***
            So you vote for the perception rather than performing due diligence? Not the way to decide the leadership of the nation. You might as well have voted for “o”boy.

          • Daniel F. Melton

            Is your annoyance due to the fact that Palin put the screws to the corrupt republican “old boy’s club” that was suffocating Alaska’s economy? Could it be that your ire about Palin is due to her rise from mom/business manager with a batchelor’s degree in Journalism, through school board, city council, mayor, and Governor of Alaska?
            Are you angered that she may be smarter than you?
            Does it burn your backside that every statement she’s made during the campaign was factually correct, in spite of what the media had to say?
            Will you have an apoplectic fit if she runs with Col. Alan West in 2016?

    I remember a lot of Democrats in 2008 saying that Sarah Palin was not eligible to be President because she was only a governor. I guess they forgot two things:1) Under the Constitution she was and still is qualified to run because is a US citizen born in the US and she is of age. 2) Their hero Bill Clinton was only a governor. as well as Ronald Reagan. Any one who is 36 or over and a US citizen can run for the Presidency.

    • Deerinwater

      Well, anyone who said something like that was not up to speed on such matters. Palin was eligible before she was governor.

      • jimwilson81

        My point exactly. I forgot who actually said it, but I remember seeing it on ABC Evening News just before the Elections.

        • mysticmaggie

          Yes, that was supposedly one reason not to take her seriously…then they brought on Obama, who didn’t know diddly about business (Sarah did), how to speak and work with anyone other than his paying cronies, and who told everyone outright that he was going to fundamentally change the greatest country on earth. No one thought to ask one little question. How? Now we are discovering he meant to wreck us financially, pull the private sector firmly under government control, and allow illegal aliens to vote, as they are now being set up to do in California. Maybe we should all ask questions about the next Democratic ‘brilliant’ person. I believe that will be victim Hillary, who during her husband’s reign also had trouble remembering anything except that she was certain all Bill’s troubles were huge Right Wing conspiracies. Sound familiar, folks?

          • jimwilson81

            Another reason not to vote for Hillary in 2016. Palin is a lot smarter than Hillary. For instance, when Hillary was in Mexico and the showed her the image of The Lady of Guadalupe, she said that it was beautiful and asked who painted it. Before she left for Mexico she should have asked about the history of Mexico and learned about the Appearance of Mary in Guadalupe. After all, the country is predominantly Catholic.

    Sarah Palin is the only “real man” running for anything-!!!
