Post Debate: Sarah Palin on Greta

report this ad

Sarah Palin really liked this debate giving kudos to both Newt, for bringing up the massive waste in government, and Bachmann for bringing up the Merck/Gardasil issue with Perry. Of course she made sure to point out that we need more than just words, that we need proven records to back up their statements. She even points that when she was Governor of Alaska and she saw the Gardasil moves that Perry was making in Texas, that she told her Health and Human services department that Alaska wasn’t going to mandate vaccinations for their teenage daughters. And she even mentions that her record of doing that was in those emails that the media poured through just a few months ago:

    WoW! Gov. Palin went after Perry. She is running because the only person up on that stage that I saw her maybe endorsing was Perry. If not Perry than that leaves Newt.

    She is so running.

    • As long as she’s taking a check from FOX she’s not running. It’s a conflict of interest. If she’s planning on running but telling Fox legal that she’s not running so she can keep that $1,000,000 per year coming in then she really has no room to talk ethics here.

    She slammed Perry! Run, Sarah, run! And take your time with your decision! You don’t anyone for the biggest decision of your life and for your family! I know that when Sarah Palin decides conclusively one way or another it will be the right decision. If she runs, you better belief she will be in it to win it! She is already more interesting and more articulate and more bolder than anyone in this current field. She’s in third place right now. Her polling has improved during this waiting period. Palin has taken on the Establishment before and taking them on is a tall order. If you are in it to win it, then it requires alot of strategizing and prayer! But I think Palin has their number and she is compiling the records of everyone in the field and she is not going to let anyone get in behind her. She knows the tricks! When she gets in, she intends on setting the field! Palin 2012, Accept No Substitutes!

              Because it’s not anybody but Obama if we are just going to get the same old “crony capitalist” except he is from the other party. It appears that you don’t know anything about how to fight. Palin already fought the Republican establishment by exposing the corruption in her own party in Alaska. That is a mortal sin as far as the good old boys in the GOP are concerned. Palin is doing pretty damn good in getting that point out there that the “political establishment” in the GOP is corrupt and for sale. That was a game changer. If she got in the race too early that would not be exposed.
              This woman has been described by her opponents in Alaska as “alley cat smart.” Maybe you ought to check out the documentary “The Undefeated.” This is going to be one hell of an exciting race because of Palin. Sorry for you that you just think this is another same old tired election. This is going to be one for the ages.

              • Professor Why

                “It appears that you don’t know anything about how to fight.” Wow, got that from me from the posts on this topic, did you now… You’re good! No, seriously, you’re SO good on that… I mean, being able to figure out that, just based off my statements of wanting Palin to actually get IN the campaign and not PLAY at it as she has been right now means that I don’t know a thing about fighting… I know, you must be psychic! Yeah, that’s it! Tell me, how many fingers am I holding up? What am I thinking right now?

                And where did I say it was just another same-ol’ tired election? Ah, yes, I forgot — you’re psychic, you can read my mind on these things, even though I never stated such a thing… Like I said, you’re good! What’s that, you want me to pick a card and you’ll tell me what it is? Oh, okay… Three of clubs? WOW!

                In all seriousness, though… Please don’t assume this crap about me not knowing about fighting. That’s beneath you. As for watching “The Undefeated”, I do plan on watching it soon, but I’ve had other issues going on at the moment (long hospital stay for pancreatitis, lack of a job due to Obamanomics, etc.)… As I said in another post, I think she’d make a good candidate, but I’m growing tired of this game she’s playing. My own personal opinion regarding that. Doesn’t mean that I don’t think she’d do well overall, doesn’t mean I don’t know about the fighting spirit, and doesn’t mean that I think this election isn’t for the future of our Republic.

                  Thanks for the kind words and thoughts… Keep in mind, though, I’ve got plenty of fight — I just don’t have a candidate I want to back at about 100% yet… But I DO know that Obama must go!

                  Right now, with the current slate of candidates, I’m looking at Cain and — surprisingly! — Newt because of their debate performances… But that’s not to say someone won’t make a persuasive argument to sway me… And it’s still a LOOOOOOONG way to go, a marathon of sorts, so anything can still happen… 😉

              Instead of assuming she’s “teasing” and “playing games”, why not just take her at her word? Why is that such a remote possibility to be beyond comprehension? There’s no reason to fell like a mouse being toyed with by a playfull cat unless you choose to. After all, you can’t expect her to be responsible for everyone’s personal issues.

    • David Robertson

      She didn’t say she was getting her kicks watching people wonder about her run. She said she was enjoying giving speeches and having her voice heard by the candidates as they discuss the topics she introduces from her speeches in the debates. I.e. Crony capitalism. She is happy she is able to shape the debate. She should be. Her point is that she cares about the content of the American discussion more than a title.

      • Professor Why

        You’re right, she didn’t specifically say she was getting her kicks from it, she said she thought it was a hoot, indicating her enjoyment of watching everyone (candidates, media) running around to the beat of her drummer. Sorry, but in my personal opinion, she’s playing a game right now… I’m glad she feels happy to shape the debate, but will be even more glad if she decides to be IN the debate (as she could’ve been last night had she accepted the offer to appear on-stage).

    • Professor Why

      Thought I’d add this in there, since it might not be obvious from my original statement… I WOULD support Gov. Palin, should she enter the race. She has some good ideas and I think she’d make a good candidate.

      The issue I have (and, once again, this is my PERSONAL OPINION), this tease / game she’s playing and enjoying so much right now is turning me off the longer it goes on… The sooner she actually declares one way or the other, the more comfortable I would feel backing her as a serious candidate for the Presidency… But the longer it goes on, the less likely I am to come into her camp…

      That said, there’s no way in HELL I’d vote for that jug-eared jackass Obama, so even if she’d declare the day before the general election (which, I know, you can’t do, but it’s just an example!), I’d vote for her over that buffoon…

      One final thought: I can see why Palin supporters get a bad rap. Express an opinion that doesn’t conform to certain supporters’ viewpoints and attack mode jumps on… To those unfortunate few who are like that, may I offer a suggestion? GET A GRIP! Back away from the political landscape, take some deep breaths, and relax… As it’s been said many times before, it’s a long way away from the general election… So save up that energy and use your attacks on the one person who truly deserves them — the jug-eared jackass himself, Obambi!

      • David Robertson

        Can’t speak for the other replies, but I wouldn’t classify mine as an attack. I was just pointing out my perception of the clip.
        I’ve said this before…I, too, would love to see her mixing it up right now. I also see that it is indeed a long way to go before the general election, and it isn’t unnatural for someone sitting out this section of it as has been done before. In my opinion, I believe she is sitting out right now for more financial considerations than the excuse she is giving about family. It would stand to reason that the family has already figured this out (note her daughter’s admission to that several weeks ago via Fox News).
        It is savvy to time your announcement when you have your campaign finance plan settled and when it would make the biggest impact.
        I share your sentiment that the waiting is frustrating. I hope she announces soon.

        • Professor Why

          Nah, I wouldn’t categorize your posting as any sort of attack either… it’s all good… 😉

            20 others are in the middle of legislation on it.
            And the rest, except the one or two that defeated it, are initiating the legislation on it already.
            Australia, where the company is based, has had it mandated for years, so has South Korea and a few other european countries.

            I up until seeing this interview I could care less.
            But after what I just saw, she would walk in with egg on her face over what she said.
            Im against gardasil!
            But yet signed off on my state having it
            Im against Perry’s cronyism over gardasil!
            Yet years later after you knew that, you endorsed his conservatism…
            You also endorsed Mccain and appointed a pro abortionist as you left office… how good is your word?

              Stop lying.

              1. Re Gardasi, AK recommended, did not mandate

              2. Her appointment was on the board of Planned Parenthood back in the 90s when they promoted adoption, at the time they didn’t perform abortions.

              And if you don’t know how AK judges are appointed and how it’s different than most other states and the Supreme Court, I’m not taking the time to do your homework for you. But here’s a tip: The gov is given 2 (or more) choices (in Palin’s case, 2) from which to choose a judge. Palin’s admin took the unprecedented step of requesting all records of her 2 choices. The other guy was a green activist who was quoted as saying judges can legislate from the bench. He would have KILLED the development of Alaska’s resources.

              Do your homework.

    I think it’s unfair to focus on the Gardasil issue when there are other “mandatory” inoculations/immunizations that are pushed in the public schools. Sure, one is targeted toward young girls and makes parents jump through hoops to opt out of, but the others target every student and still give parents little apparent choice in the matter.

    • Don B

      Were any of these other mandatory immunizations placed into law by any of the current candidates, whose former Chief of Staff now works for the drug company?

      At some point, these abuses of trust and power for financial benefit need to stop, and to defend it because it has happened before and is therefore unquestionable just doesn’t cut it. Too bad for Perry that he’s in the middle of it, but he made the decision and now he has to answer for it.

        Rather than defending it, I was pointing out their lack of consistency across the board. I think it’s ridiculous that I have to purposefully opt out of a Hepatitis B shot for my newborn. If a candidate wants to take on these abuses of trust and power, I’ll be behind them 100%. I only expect them to be consistent.

        And if I’m not mistaken, Perry’s executive order was overturned by the legislature, and as he aptly pointed out tonight, the pay-off was a whopping $6K. I don’t think this issue is a headliner.

            Yeah, let me know how great that philosophy stands up against the fact that with out mandate, people have to pay for the vaccine out of pocket as insurance and health programs will not cover it. Alaska has a great “voluntary” program for Vaccinations for Children if you dont have insurance or any other coverage. You opt in, you get your 16 vaccines, including gardasil, and no sweat. Tax payers already paid for the vaccine, thank you Sarah.
            However, in other states this means the people who can not afford to pay for it out of pocket will not get it, which means they will most likely get whatever disease is not mandated which means they will end up in a hospital getting care out of your wallet.
            Which is cheaper, 300 dollar vaccine, or treating cancer? Let me know which one you want to pay “your fair share” for.

              So not getting a particular vaccine is now making it “most likely” people will get the disease?

        The drug from Merk have not completed all of the test for side effects when Perry issued the mandate. It was mandated not only for girls but also boys.

He can’t control what Stormfront writes. But he has to do some heavy repudiation at some point, just to get beyond it all.

            Perry’s heart was in the right place on this issue, even if his head wasnt all the way there.
            Texas voters passed proposition 15, which contained a 3 billion dollar budget for research and treatment for cancer. Gardasil was a product of prop 15.
            The weight of the Mandate had to be in place so people would not have to pay out of pocket for it. And as Perry stated and EVERYONE loves to ignore, the mandate carried with it an opt out. No one forced anyone to do anything they did not want. A doctor who would give gardasil would tell you what it is why you need it and ask you if you want it and if you said no, you sign a paper and you dont get it.

              “his heart was in the right place” What he did was totally immoral! It was not only mandated for 6grade little girls but also little boys as well. It is not just a $5000 contribution it is also $10’s of $1000 from the employees of Merk, their votes, cash to non-profit organizations for ads promoting Perry, etc!

              The reason why Romney did not get involve on this issue is he have his own corporate crony he does not want exposed, thank you Palin for bring that up in this interview.

              I know What you mean about all the good ideas coming from Perry and he’s talking a good game about the things we like to here. Palin has got this level hate from every political spectrum because she exposes corruption, like she did as Governor of Alaska.

            Texas voters passed proposition 15, which contained a 3 billion dollar budget for research and treatment for cancer. Gardasil was a product of prop 15.
            The weight of the Mandate had to be in place so people would not have to pay out of pocket for it. And as Perry stated and EVERYONE loves to ignore, the mandate carried with it an opt out. No one forced anyone to do anything they did not want. A doctor who would give gardasil would tell you what it is why you need it and ask you if you want it and if you said no, you sign a paper and you dont get it.

          The good news is that Perry admitted he didn’t do his homework on Gardasil.

          I think that, by itself, this is not necessarily something that prevents him from winning the nomination. But it does support Palin’s anti-cronyism message, and that’s why she does it. If he gets scuffed up a bit, that’s politics.

    Im curious how come Bachman and Santorum, and paul in the last debate, bothered bringing up the subject of Gardasil when it is clear NONE of them bothered even glancing at the CDC report the topic.
    Way to go guys, attacking through ignorance.
    Same goes for Sarah who does not even have the facts straight claiming Perry was envolved in crony capitalism on this issue.
    Shame on Sarah, she is a doll in my eyes, but she lost more points over her comments here.
    Politico got over 700 pages of emails from Perry digging for proof of “cronyism” on this and came up empty handed.
    http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0811/The_HPV_files_In_emails_Perry_mostly_absent.html

    And seriously… 5000 dollar contribution is evidence of cronyism?
    Bullshit.
    Careful what glass house you stand in while you throw stones. Merk has contributed hundreds of millions to campaigns all over the nation and I seriously doubt that Sarah is the only one who did not receive money from them especially prior to adding Gadasil to their VfC list.

    • Anonymous

      Good old Politico. Dragging this bit of smelly fish across the trail won’t really help. The dogs already know that Perry’s former Chief of Staff came back into Austin as Merck’s lobbyist. You don’t need emails to see the conflict of interest here.

      I’m ambivalent about the Gardasil issue, since I’ve seen reasons to not hold it against Perry, when it comes to the mandate/non-mandate (people make claims about it being either, depending on their position overall). I’ll wait a while before making up my mind about that aspect.

      But the lobbying by formerly high-ranking people in Government is definitely part of the machinery of crony capitalism.

      Note that Governor Palin did not say that it disqualifies him from the job of President. She just pointed out a fact that Governor Perry needs to explain.

      It’s a minor thing at this point, and if she doesn’t run, I can’t see it keeping her from endorsing him. But it’s a smart play by Gov. Palin to stick to her anti-cronyism game.

      • Mr. EMT

        Toomey was gone by 2004
        Texas was not considering Gardasil till 2006
        What Perry got out of it was 5000 bucks.
        WOW talk about CORRUPPTION ~_~

        My only question is how the hell did anyone notice the pocket change in PErry’s war chest?
        That must have been like looking down at your feet and finding a penny and debating on whether or not its worth the effort to pick it up.

        I would love for Perry to explain.
        But obviously he has been coached or believes that being the martyr for conservatives who think excluding portions of the public from access to basic preventive medicine is what our founding fathers wanted.

        I say this to all you “conservatives”
        You who buy that are full of it. There is not a single founding father who would not have shelled out the money out of their own pocket for their neighbors to get a shot that would keep them from falling victim to a debilitating and deadly disease which will cost the community a hell of a lot more to treat or cure.

        • Anonymous

          More red herring. Yes, he most definitely was gone before he became a lobbyist. That’s how crony capitalism works.

          Going off the deep end about “access to preventive medicine” is not even relevant to the issue. Who the hell goes around making it harder to access healthcare but the Democrats and their massive rules and regulations?

        • To me the real crony capitalism is taking a blind eye to the open borders mess. Perry has been in control of a border state for close to a decade, his neighboring states and even Massachusetts enacted offense play against illegal immigration.He is largely financed by cronies with a vested interest in cheap labor while our young men are losing body parts in Afnamistan. THIS IS THE ULTIMATE CORRUPTION!

        • Out of their own pocket, maybe. But not out of others pockets through the government. It is a fully preventable disease without the vaccine, and it is potentially deadly to those that are allergic to it. Opting out is not easy, and when it is available, its not clear that it is available. My wife almost died from one of these “life-saving drugs” when she was a kid. They had to give it to her in spite of the fact they knew she was allergic to it.

    • Professor Why

      Dude, using Politico as a source isn’t helping your cause at all… lol

      Do you have any other sources for this stuff you’re pushing out? I decided to do a search on “Gardasil Alaska”, and the only thing I came up with that had any relevance was this:

      http://www.hss.state.ak.us/press/2007/pr053107fed-funding-hpv-vax.htm

      It’s from Alaska’s own Health & Human Services department, and talks about making the drug available to all young women within a certain age category, but I didn’t see anything in there about it being mandated…

      So, what non-Politico, non-leftist sources do you have?

    Perhaps many of you will disagree on this, but I think Newt is becoming an attractive VP candidate. He is establishment, which hurts him along with his other baggage. However, consider these three points:
    1. He was a major player in reforming welfare and balancing the budget in the 90’s
    2. He would make a terrific advisor on how to navigate through the mess that is Washington…I.e., procedures and legislative gotchas
    3. I personally would love to see him reduce Biden to the fetal position sucking his thumb in a debate.

    This attacking conservative candidates, by the way, was a frequent fault of Newt’s. Don’t forget that, folks. Google “Newt + Scozzafava”. And it goes back much further than that with Newt. He’s a RINO all the way, and Heaven help the conservative who draws his attention.

    When did our candidates decide to throw the economy to the side and debate Gardasil? Please. People don’t care about vaccinations. Little thing called JOBS!

    Is Palin running? Snide remarks from the peanut gallery is not accepted when you are leading on supporters/fans/cult members, whatever they refer themselves…

    We need to focus on the current field and get back to the issue that matters. And it’s JOBS and the huge deficit.

    • Anonymous

      No, it isn’t jobs. It is free markets and smaller government. Getting government out of the way will, directly and indirectly, affect the economy and jobs market.

      The government does not create jobs, the private sector does (unless it is more government jobs, which requires bigger government, more regulations, and less freedom for both individuals and businessmen).

      Our freedom should not be for sale in favor of more jobs.

      Crony capitalism is buying our congressmen’s (or Governors) votes, which is why government leaders become rich from it…7 out of the top 10 richest districts in the nation are around DC. When special interests buy our congressmen’s votes, it means they have a conflict of interest…they are not representing US but instead representing the special interests. And when they do not represent the people, we lose our freedoms…count on it.

      The Gardasil issue is about crony capitalism, not about whether a vaccine is good or not. Perry has become very rich while being the governor of Texas. How did he become rich? I think it’s a question that should be answered. He’s a politician who plays the same as most politicians…crooked politics as usual.

      I do not want politics as usual. I want a restoration back to our original vision of what our country and government should be. Get rid of the crooks, make the government smaller and responsible to the people, give us back our freedom to run our lives without constant interference from government.

      Sarah Palin stands for that vision, and that’s why I support her. She is the only one of all the candidates or likely candidates who both WILL and CAN do all of that. Most of the others have long since sold their souls or are too weak to stand up against the powers that be. Sarah has done it in Alaska and will do it at the national level too. It will be fighting all the way for what is right, but she’s a fighter and knows how to do it.

      • Actually the government CAN create jobs it just doesn’t make a profit and therefore whatever jobs the government creates means it will be “we the people” that will be paying for these jobs. It is necessary to keep the government small and focused so it doesn’t drain the American worker of their hard earned money.

        If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare… The powers of Congress would subvert the very foundation, the very nature of the limited government established by the people of America. Alexander Hamilton

      • Actually the government CAN create jobs it just doesn’t make a profit and therefore whatever jobs the government creates means it will be “we the people” that will be paying for these jobs. It is necessary to keep the government small and focused so it doesn’t drain the American worker of their hard earned money.

    SarahPAC treasurer, Tim Crawford, sent out an email today with a subject line that reads, “Now is the time to show your ongoing support of Governor Palin.” His email specifically mentions the decision-making process in which Governor Palin is currently engaged.

    WAIT! Isn’t this the Same Greta that was trashing along with Laura Ingraham Ms. SP just a week or two ago, saying she should either get in or get out, etc?

      That wasn’t Greta. That was Ann Colter.

    A lot of Palinistas are getting tired and frustrated, including moi. But then, we all know that good things come to those who have the patience to wait and watch.

    Does anyone have the exact date by which she HAS TO FILE her nomination? I
    thought it was by the 3rd week of Oct but the date might be even further than that in certain circumstances. If so, Palin is sure to take advantage of those “certain circumstances” because the later she gets in the boxing ring the better for her and she knows it. Fighting the lefty media should not distract her from her main focus once she throws in her guantlet and the less time given to those lefty devils to tear into her the better it will be.

    So, let’s all have patience while biting our nails to the stump and take it like true Palinistas.

  • Wait, wait? Is this Palin saying Bachmann did something well? But, I could have absolutely sworn Bachmann was just a Rove plant whose purpose was to sink Palin. I know this because the Palinistas were telling me so.

    BTW, I don’t think crony capitalism means what she thinks it means. News flash for everyone out there: the most common place for a former politican or his/her staff to end up working after their political career is……as lobbyists. It’s the current nature of the beast, and if having a former staffer work as lobbyist is crony capitalism, then I can almost promise every single politican will be or has been a crony capitalist at some point.
