This is a great ad and not just because it has Sarah Palin in it, but because Palin does a great job explaining why Missourians should vote for Sarah Steelman (h/t: Politico)

Now is that a Cap and Balance? Or just a balance… the latter scares me to death.
I don’t need another reason for Congress to be “forced to raise my taxes.”
If they go with Orrin Hatch’s balanced budget amendment, it won’t raise your taxes.
Thanks for that info, scoop.
Hatch’s BBA is why Palin also endorsed Hatch over Lilljenquist (sp?).
To much heartache from certain circles.
Thanks for the info Scoop. I just checked out his BBA and it does cap spending at 20% of GDP.
It also includes a waiver for if the US is engaged in a military conflict that threatens national security though… and these days, when are we NOT in some kind of military conflict? Do you think politicians could use that as a way to weasel out of this requirement?
And just an interesting note: “Hatch’s proposed amendment passed the House of Representatives in 1997, but failed to pass the Senate by the required two-thirds majority BY ONE VOTE to move on the States for ratification”
Imagine the disaster that could have been avoided if that passed and was ratified by the States.
The problem is not the Constitution. The problem is a duly elected government that does not believe they are accountable to the Constitution. Unless we fix that, all the amendments in the world will not change a single thing in DC.
I do not trust Hatch at all nor do I trust Congress. Look at where we are now – we have a Congress passing un-Constitutional laws. We have an Executive Branch including the DOJ, intentionally violating the Constitution and bypassing Congress. And how about that dandy Supreme Court that just upheld the power of the Central Government to tax us for not buying their products.
Going on 3 years now Congress has not even delivered on its most fundamental duty – pass a budget – balanced or not.
and…… NO ONE IS STOPPING THEM.
Perhaps we should first elect ourselves a government that actually follows the Constitution before giving this illegal one more power to Amend it.
Here we go again entrusting the politcos with fixing the problem they themselves created. We do not need a damn amendment to balance the budget – we just need to hold the politicians accountable.
How can anyone out here trust this permanently and thoroughly corrupt Congress to Amend our Constitution?! The BBA will morph into a Trojan Horse – Believe that!
Every time since the Bill of Rights, that these self serving politicians have touched or amended to the Constitution, they have taken away another big chunk of our liberty and given themselves more power. The 17th Amendment was the worst- without it the States would still have a say in the government and we would still have the power to replace these turncoat Senators like McCain, and Hatch.
To the worthless politicians in DC: Do your damn jobs, balance the budget and leave our Constitution alone – You have screwed it and the country up enough already.
No thank you on Steelman!!!! McCaskill has to go, but Steelman is not the answer. Bruner or Atkin would be much better senators.
Agreed. Sarah Steeleman’s husband is an attorney. She has been on record opposing TORT reform in the past. She will do so in the future.
Don’t evaluate the candidate only, you got to factor in the spouse too, and their line of work.
Vote Akin or Vote Brunner, but Steeleman’s a RINO in waiting.
Thanks for letting us know
Although I love her –
I think Gov. Palin could do more from the sidelines right now than actually running
(then she could be a high profile Cabinet member – Energy would be nice – then run in 2020 for POTUS)
By staying on the “outside” she can slam all she wants to without being a distraction
She can slam the MSM all she wants – What could they do ?
I am glad to see her still involved –
Mama Grizzly !
You mean 2016?
If Romney wins.
And if Romney governs U.S. the way he did Mass., then 2016 is up for grabs.
See: 2006 Alaska gubernatorial Republican primary.
I was ASSuming he would do a good job
like I said ASSuming
I don’t think Romney will govern that way. He had an 80% liberal legislature that fed him the bills he signed. There was only so much he could do. If we take both houses he will have more conservative agendas to work with…and he better take advantage of it.
The sad thing is that the media has and will use all of it’s resources to make her look dumb. She is very bright, but the media attacks are very effective to sway people that don’t pay much attention to her. The left is scared to death of her.
I believe WE the Peoples have to tell them
enough of your BS –
WE must call them out
Keep this handy >> http://www.fair.org/index.php?page=111
That’s a good link and a good idea to use it. Bookmarked. Thanks.
Ditto what kong said — and did!
She should be appointed head of the EPA and take down all the bureaucrats in the EPA who are legislating without being elected.(I know its wishful thinking of me)
I’m so happy to see Sarah Palin going out and helping to elect the right people (pun intended). I believe she is making a difference. God bless her!
Personally, I think Palin is singlehandedly responsible for much of the success of the conserative comeback. We need a leader and she has been leading all the way. I can’t think of any other single person that has been as effective or as watched as she has been.
I think you are right, that’s why Cheney took a shot at her yesterday. The republicans want the votes she can bring in but not the conservatism.
Thank you Sarah–Both of you’s
EXCELLENT!! More! MORE!!!
I don’t think Gov Palin’s aspirations for becoming president are over. I think she realized she needs more conservatives in both the House and Senate to enact her reform agenda. I have nothing to base this on, just a gut feeling.
As Glenn Beck might say: “YOU are NOT alone!” 🙂
I’d love to see her go for the big job, but I don’t see the same thing as you (hopefully I’m just blind). I think she has reserved herself to just help push the conservative movement along….and boy is she good at it. I can’t think of a single person as effective as she has been….ever.
I think she was going to run this go round. I think that is what her bus tour was all about last year. Then she canceled it right after Bachmann jumped in. I think that is why she didn’t jump in this go round.
I second that. Bachmann definitely pulled an interference play that Palin was wise to avoid. The fact is, any of Bachmann’s mis-steps would have tarred Palin as well, for being the “other woman in the race.” If she’s gonna do it, she’ll have to jump in before some other Republican woman. Unfortunately, as we saw with Nikki Haley, being a woman is no insulation from being an opportunist. So expect some other Republican woman to try and jump in ahead of Palin next time.
I kind of defended Bachmann after she entered the race, even so I was also not happy with her for keeping Palin out. It was not smart of Michelle Bachmann at all. I can admire Bachmann for her gutsy plays in Congress, but she just doesn’t manage a campaign well enough to be President.
Yeah, I wish Bachmann would have contacted Sarah and asked Sarah if she was planning on jumping into the race. Let Sarah know she was thinking about it, but would not jump in if Sarah was planning on it.
You are right about her campaign As I’ve said before, I wanted to volunteer and the campaign person never responded to my email.
Michelle Bachmann started her campaign with her manager atacking Palin repeatedly. Michelle said very little to restrain him. It wasn’t a cordial campaign start even though Palin put a lot of effort into Bachmann’s reelection campaign.
I would love to see her win it as the gop nominee in 2016 and then in 2020 I would love to see her run as a independent for re-election. Dooming the gope to the dustbowl of history
The left and the media make fun of Palin for her mama grizzly bear comments, but I like them because it makes a point. Get between her and her family and she’s going to rip you a new a-hole, lol. She applies it to conservatism, too.
A little side note…what’s up with all the good looking conservative women? When I was younger I partied hard and loved heavy metal. But you know where I went to look for girls? Country bars. I could never stand the women with tattoos from head to toe and the way they acted….like biker chics. But the women in country bars were so much more down to earth, more sexy, and had much better values. I love the country girl image.
Hopefully I didn’t offend anyone.
No offense taken, Kong. I was a country girl – didn’t hang out in the bars much but I do understand what you mean about being down to earth.
Funny story: I didn’t like country music when I was young but I met this really good looking cowboy type and forced myself to listen for 1 hour a day so I could stand to go out with him on Saturday night. 🙂
Lol, that’s funny. The things you do for love (just a phrase, not suggesting you loved the cowboy, lol).
Lord I hope I live to see this woman as president some day…the sooner the better.
Thank you for the post, Right Scoop
This is getting hysterical! Obama needs Clinton to rev up his base and get liberal democrats out to vote because they know conservatives have SARAH! Sarah is just getting started. She will kick Bubba’s derriere with the crowds she will draw while campaigning. Clinton has followers, but NOTHING like Sarah does! Watch the liberal left media continue their attacks on Sarah while saying nothing about the womanizing adulterous “cigar” pervert Clinton. Sarah stands for things that the Clintons and especially the Obamas will NEVER understand or appreciate.
I was kind of happy clinton is gonna be in the convention, I bet clinton will cause some sort of noise or controversy to make obama look bad, and by the fact that he needs clinton to help him it just tells you the desperation the obama campaign has.
Like britt hume said clinton in the convention is a distress signal. Lol
Relevance personified. She’s here and clear so the GOPe and the Dems better get used to it.
What is in the conservative water that attracts gorgeous, capable, smart, God-fearing women to our side….oh that’s right the truth! These woman don’t run from it they embrace it!
” We’re here, we’re clear, get used to it.” Sarah Palin
That is a gutsy all in move for both Sarahs. Love it.
Libs are going to love that Mama Grizzly and Maverick stuff. You Betcha! Karl Rove, not so much!
Nice to see two Sarahs in one ad! They both seem to have great futures ahead of them.
It’s your turn Missouri…let’s keep taking down the corrupt, elite snobs.
“The status quo has got to go”. It certainly has a nice ring to it.
WOO HOO! Straight forward, great ad.
I love Sarah Palin and all she stands for and would vote for anybody she endorses.
NICE! I can’t wait to see Sarah speaking at a Steelman campaign event in MO!
