Sarah Palin gives some excellent  and needed advice to the Romney/Ryan campaign in a statement to the Weekly Standard:

“With so much at stake in this election, both Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan should ‘go rogue’ and not hold back from telling the American people the true state of our economy and national security,” says Palin. “They need to continue to find ways to break through the filter of the liberal media to communicate their message of reform.”

Palin also suggests that Romney and Ryan can be responsible for an epiphany on this country’s fiscal standing. “America desperately needs to have a ‘come to Jesus’ moment in discussing our big dysfunctional, disconnected, and debt-ridden federal government,” says Palin.

“It is nothing short of appalling that President Obama couldn’t even remember how much our national debt is during his interview with David Letterman the other night. Even my 10-year-old daughter knows that it’s $16 trillion, and unlike Obama, she’s not responsible for adding trillions to it. Obama casually told America that we don’t have to worry about our debt in the ‘short term.’ Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan need to ask him how long that ‘short term’ will last.”

Palin adds that Romney and Ryan are being “counted on” to get this right.

    I saw that today Sarah….Ryan is great when explaining numbers and the problems we face in the financial sense. Yet he gives you alot of hope and he gives the facts but then tells you a great course to hopefully change direction. On the trail Paul is great and he compliments Mitt well about his background and business acumen.

    • BlueGood

      Why the Republican ticket is ignoring Sarah Palin and her GAZILLIONS of followers is beyond my comprehension.

      They seem to be more afraid of her than the Dimocrats in ’08!

      IMHO, 2016 will be Sarah’s year, and it might be just in time to save America from the downward slide to oblivion, and the ultimate surrender to Islamists and Political Correctness.

        Strange, isn’t it? From the same old GOP and the establishment campaign team who shun the very grassroot Tea Party conservatives and independents who powered GOP congress to a majority in 2010. Yet Romney’s campaign made a conscious decision to shun Tea Party and Sarah Palin in RNC. May be political correctness for the fear of being tarred too far-right conservative? R&R campaign message as a result had not reached the critical mass by the measure of the 4-day TV media viewership.

        Romney campaign definitely needs a huge momentum boost at this critical point. It’s never too late to shout out to Mark Levin, Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck to rally Tea Party grassroot conservatives & independents like the scale of Tea Party Rally in Washington. R&R needs all the support they can muster for Tea Party grassroot to organize and campaign for them on every state/region/district/precint level. Most conservatives will vote for R&R alright, a given, but if the Tea Party is not even been invited to be part of the campaign, people are just not going to volunteer their effort if they are being sidelined and not been welcomed.

        • sDee

          Yup! Just a few phone calls and the energy of millions would be unleashed:
          Sarah, Allen, Mark, Michele, Glenn

          I do not feel so bad deciding to focus my donations to SarahPac and her candidates, and contributing/volunteering for West and our great Tea Party Candidates here in NC. The people I talk to are excited, they will show up at the voting booth. Heck, they will probably even vote for Romney while they are in there :D

          • JohnBarry2012

            I do hope there’s no support/campaign remorse for Scott Brown in Massachusetts. He was a big let-down for Tea Party after they campaigned their heart out for him to win Kennedy’s senate seat. He’s current traling Elizabeth Warren in recent poll. I wonder this time if folks are going to campaign with ferver for him again after he repeatedly thumbed down Tea Party after his victory.

            • sDee

              Brown taking that seat from Kennedy was impossible for me to resist – especially in the heat of the Obamacare battle. I did dial-up to registered voters for Scott Brown’s campaign from NC (web based callback). I also donated what I am constantly reminded was a “stupid” amount of money ;)

              The Tea Party movement – nationwide elected Brown. Yeah he ignored us but if you look at Scott Brown’s big buck patrons, i say he had little choice.

              The guy has voted pretty much the same as Kennedy would have. I am not mad or remorseful. In retrospect it was my fault – the signs were there – I did not look. Of course I will have nothing to do with him (on my spam list) and, I would have to guess that the core conservative support he had in MA is disgusted with him too.

              Scott Brown is why only true conservatives get my time and money now. It just seems to me that by the time they get propped up high like Brown was – they are slaves to their funders.

              • JohnBarry2012

                sDee, I think you pretty much crystalized and summed up (more than most would dare to say or articulate) the subtlety and sentiment of distrust of the conservative with GOP establishment and its willingness to listen to the voice and carry out the mandate of the people for a true fiscal-conservative constitutional govnt. Yet, nonetheless, many Tea Party senatorial and congrational candidates did made no small inroad in the Senate and Congress, perhaps not enough in 2010, but hopefully suffice to be a majority sphere of influence in both Houses in 2012. I do hope that Romney will reach out and mobilize Tea Party and Ron Paul’s libertarian conservatives (no small faction and RNC rule change pissed them off) as he needs to mustered the support of every consevatives and independents to win. That 47% govnt dependency and changing demographic is simply too close to lose/win the election which would forever change the future of this nation. I hope Laura ingraham is wrong about the GOP if they can’t beat Obama … God forbid.

  • WinMissouri

    All I am hearing from the Romney-Ryan ticket are the things here on TRS and the talking points in some of the media. I purchased bumper stickers but the yard signs have not arrived. Missouri must be so tied up for Romney that we are last on the list to get yard signs and I see know billboards or large signs for the national tickets. I see very few bumper stickers for either ticket which is good to see for the O. In 2008 it made me sick as it seemed 9 out of 10 cars in the St. Louis area had O stickers. I would like to see them get a little Palin fire in their bellies and let loose from now until election day.

  • 911Infidel

    Obama isn’t interested in studying anything. He wants to sit on his can, play golf, drink beer and continue his free ride. He’s lazy. In the meantime, the rest of America is waking up. Judging from where I sit America isn’t comming to Jesus so much as it is realizing that Obama is a fool; and no matter what his newsmedia cronies say, its all a big fat lie.

    They need look no further than their grocery bill or the price of fuel; or the price of their homes, or their unemployed and underemployed friends. Reality is a b*tch.

  • joyfulgiver

    O he knew what the debt was/is, he just thought that by saying it, it might be used against him some day in the court of popular opinion. He won’t acknowledge anything that would incriminate him. It’s still not his fault, he’s just waiting for the right person to come along to blame it on. Maybe Harry Reid should take the hit.

    Great suggestion but I think they are trying to be cautious because obama is just waiting for any little thing to play that race card again.

  • Amjean

    There is an old saying, “you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink it”.
    People know this country is in grave trouble; they just don’t want to hear about it.

    I am unsure if Obama’s popularity isn’t in line with how many voters think. “Let someone
    else worry about it….not my problem….I have to get my “gimmee”, etc. etc.

    Until we are no longer the “me” generation (how long ago did this start? It doesn’t seem
    to have ended), we will get the president and the government we deserve.

    That said, conservatives need to vote; if we stay home, there will be no hope because
    Romney will have no chance of winning.

    Regardless whether or not Romney shoots himself in the foot, we need to vote because
    if Obama gets elected our country (and the world) will be in terrible shape. It will be the dark ages of a world recession and perhaps even a world war.

  • http://navalwarfare.blogspot.com/ Libertyship46

    Palin is absolutely right. Not nearly enough has been made about the crushing national debt we now face. And for Obama to go on the David Letterman show and not even know how high our national debt is right now, shows you how embarrassed he is by it. Tell the people and make it very, very, clear during the debates that we’re about to sail off a fiscal cliff and Obama really doesn’t care about it and really doesn’t want to talk about it.

    • http://twitter.com/cfallon57 Cheryl Fallon

      Wait until the debate…O might be able to spin things but Romney has worked/WORKED I say in the business world for a long time and he will make O’s head spin when it comes to numbers-depending though on the questions asked…

      • Nukeman60

        …depending though on the questions asked…‘ – cf

        Therein lies the rub, when it comes to the debates. We need to show the public outrage if the first debate shows the level of bias that the Republican primary moderators showed.

        They tried, and failed, to explain themselves over the Gingrich questions and had to back away. More ‘in your face’ with the media is going to be called for.

        • sDee

          Good point – Newt whacked them with their own stick – it was awesome.

          • http://twitter.com/PuritanD71 PuritanD71

            Hmmm, so for Romney to have a good debate he is going to have to pull a Newt? Not seeing that one happening….

            • sDee

              yeah, I do not think that is Romney’s style. It would none the less be awesome! The press is the problem and he knew going after them would not only diffuse the loaded question but also be raw meat for the conservative base – we despise the media.

      • p m

        …and therein lies the fatal flaw – the immoderately libtard moderators.

        • http://twitter.com/PuritanD71 PuritanD71

          Now, both parties agreed to who should moderate the debate. ///

          Nonetheless, I am not sure that the debates are going to work well. Is Romney going to directly attack Obama on Obamacare? Is he going to point out the critical flaws in O’s dealing on national defense and domestic issues?

          Maybe, if he is willing to go out against him strong now than absolutely will do so at the debates. However, if we are waiting for Mitt to finally come out swinging and think that the debates are where they are at, I think it may be to little to late for it.

      • white531

        It is hard for a Conservative to win a Presidential debate under the current conditions that exist in the way the debates are set up and run.

        The entire contest is rigged from the beginning by the Liberals. The moderators who get to ask the questions are all Liberals. The questions themselves, having been prepared by Liberal experts from the Obama camp, offer no advantage to the Conservative and every advantage to the Liberal. Even the tone and posture the moderators take on when asking the Republican contender, differ from the way they ask his Democratic counterpart.

        The environment they create and stage, can make even an intelligent man like Romney or Ryan appear lacking. They can’t do it with Newt Gingrich or Colonel Allen West, but then they aren’t going to be on that stage.

        Best thing the Romney camp could do at this point, is have Romney and Ryan be coached intensively by Newt and Colonel West before the debates begin. That, of course, would have to go hand-in-hand with the idea that the Establishment Republicans know what they are doing. I see my mistake already.

        • sDee

      “And for Obama to go on the David Letterman show and not even know how high our national debt is right now, shows you how embarrassed he is by it.”

      Liberty, it is possible that he is not embarrassed by it at all. I don’t think he cares what it is. If he could run it up another ten trillion, I believe he would. His goal is to bring about a collapse of this nation. Massive debt is only one of the methods he is using to accomplish his goal.

  • deTocqueville1

    Thanks Scoop. What a treat: West and Palin, two diamonds of sparkling and fearless clarity in this struggle.

  • carmtom13

    Romney and Ryan need to take the advice Governor Palin said. She knows BHO, his crew and the liberal C O A lap dog media very well and how they deceive the American people. There are only 2 people who have run against BHO and his crew, that’s McCain and Palin. Time for Romney and Ryan to tell the American people the Truth about what this radical left wing administration has done to this country. BHO owns the murder of 4 Americans, 6 trillion in new debt in less than 4 years, no jobs, the economy, obamacare etc. BHO OWNS all of this no matter how the C O A lap dog media try to spin it facts are facts!

  • Nukeman60

    Is it just me or do others see that the Republican party is so much better at picking Vice Presidential candidates than Presidents, while the Democrats find the biggest bozos as their VP choices.

    Perhaps an amendment to make the VP the person in charge from now on would be in order (after this administration, of course). We would be sailing in open water if that were the case.

    • sDee

      Ryan can win after Romney. We must turn this into 8+ 8.

      Romney will face unprecedented damage. He has to drive hard to limited government. He cannot do what Bush did.

    • http://twitter.com/PuritanD71 PuritanD71

      Nuke,

      I agree with you. But if we are honest, we know why they pick great VP’s they need to shore up the conservative base. Let us not forget that the last great conservative president did have a more moderate type as VP. It demonstrates that Romney is weak on his Right flank without Ryan.

      It was the only reason why I voted McCain in 2008. I told myself that I will never vote for just the VP again though since we all know that even the most vocal VP (think Al Gore) does little to change the direction of the administration.

  • Patriot077

    It was particularly gratifying to see this comes from the Weekly Standard. I hope Sarah’s words shame the likes of Bill Kristol, that wimp who is crying about Romney’s imperfections.

    For Pete’s sake, Bill, stand up straight and pull your shoulders back. Listen to Sarah and learn. Buck up and have the guts to defend your country by promoting the best candidate on the ticket.

    • http://twitter.com/PuritanD71 PuritanD71

      Which is Ryan right?

      • Patriot077

        Not sure I understand your question. If it is regarding the “best candidate on the ticket” I was referring to Romney over Zero.

        I am really disgusted about Bill Kristol’s extremely harsh criticisms of Romney over the “unedited” tape revealed last week. His opinions are worthless but his criticism of Romney did nothing but damage the campaign. All the libs picked that up and ran with it.

        • http://twitter.com/PuritanD71 PuritanD71

          I was trying to be a bit humorous, reading down the thread of how great Ryan is. Sorry that it fell flat.

          Anyway, any criticism from the Right about what was said on Romney’s tape is awful. Yet, it is us who has allowed the Kristols to have such a “voice”. The beltway conservative reporters are fairly useless with Noonan voting for “the One” last time around.

          I don’t think his criticism damaged the campaign. If it did it is only because Romney had plenty of opportunity to do something and he thought playing defense was better than offense over this contrived “controversy”.

          • Patriot077

            Sorry I didn’t pick up on the joke -I think I’m just brain dead:)

            I’m beginning to feel sorry for Romney cause he’s damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t.

            • http://twitter.com/PuritanD71 PuritanD71

              I guess that is part of the game of politics isn’t it. It is why the best and strongest candidate stays true to himself and try not to be what others want him to be.

              It is like the coach of a football team who has to decide to go for 1 to tie or 2 for the win. Go for 2 and lose, you are seconded guessed to death, but go for 2 and win; you are a hero who can’t do any wrong. The problem is that the people forget that the coach who makes the “right” call in that moment is not a guarantee that he will do it again and again.

              Sadly, it is part of the game and each candidate should not be surprised by this.

  • putupjob

    Romney and company have to make Obama the issue by pointing out his obvious massive failures in the economy, his failed foreign policies and his severe abuse of government power with executive orders.
    The 47% video was actually a plus to the Romney campaign for it brought out some of the truths of the dependency class that are just obama voting serfs.

    Palin opens it right up. That direct talk is needed to win.

  • marketcomp

    I read this and I immediately thought to myself how much can you tell people who feel the results of this economic disaster since the depression. I hear Romney and Ryan all the time talking about unemployment, deficit, the debt, and energy or the rise in gas prices. I mean everyone feels this. Moreover, Ryan went to the AARP and told them how Obama care was killing Medicare and he got booed! We also heard Romney on the secretive tape talk about the Federal Reserve and what they are doing to further degrade our economy. We know that he called the feds or Bernanke and asked not to conduct QE3. So the onerous is on the people to decide and not wait for the MSM to direct the narrative by controlling what information they get and do not get. With the debates coming up is an even better way to get the message out about the economy. Ryan has been communicating the economy forever including schooling Obama on Obama care. I just hope that Romney uses the debate forum to educate and communicate to the American people his skills and expertise for getting this economy on track because it is the perfect venue for that.

    The problem isn’t Romney or Ryan. They are saying things that we all want to be said.

    The problem is, the message that’s being put out there. The MSM is doing everything they can to get Obama re-elected so any “Come to Jesus moment” Romney and Ryan could be trying to give to the American people, it won’t be reported.

    Unless the story makes it all the way to local news, the people won’t know.

    I mean look at this Terrorist Attack that happened on 9-11. If they media won’t even call out the Administration on this…there is no hope for a come to Jesus moment.

    The only hope for Romney to get the facts out there is the debates. He needs to give Obama everything he’s got, because that is the only way.

    But of course with as bad as the MSM is, OUR Side needs to stop attacking our own. Yes I mean you Kristol.

    The minute Romney and Ryan acknowledge they need the rousing support of Sarah Palin and her millions of TEA conservative’s commmitment and enthusiasm to rout this administration from DC, instead of playing an obama game of not knowing Our numbers. Romney thinks all he needs is the GOPe and his business acumen to win this election- how’s that workin out for ya Romney/Ryan…..you can’t move the needle in your direction against the worst president in history with his economic, foreign policy, lies, murders and communist tactics.
    The republican message will raise the roof and garner world wide attention when We are roused by Romney/Ryan’s “come to Jesus moment” We have had Our “come to Jesus moment” maybe they’ll meet up with Us then.

    Regarding the upcoming debates, Glenn Beck did an excellent segment today on this issue.

    https://dancingczars.wordpress.com/category/how-did-ronald-reagan-defeat-jimmy-carter-during-the-presidential-debates/

    It runs about 10 minutes, but is well worth watching. He relates Romney’s problem in getting across his message, to the Reagan/Carter debates and the similarity between the two contests.

    Basically, Carter killed Reagan in the first debate, because he made Reagan look foolish, talking about government programs, like farm subsidies and other things he had intimate knowledge of, while Reagan did not. It worked. Carter won the first debate.

    Enter a person by the name of Roger Ailes, a Producer who later became a political consultant. He is the person that is now famous for coaching Reagan to victory over Carter.

    He basically told Reagan, “you don’t have to get bogged down in the details. You’re good at speaking to the people with ideas. Stick to what people like about you.”

    Anyway, he basically told Reagan to stick to five basic ideas that Americans relate to. He said, “you can answer any question, by simply referring to one of those five basic ideals.”

    Glenn Beck mentioned Communism, a strong military, Big Government, and people are the solution, not government. Something like that, anyway.

    Well, you know what happened. In the second debate, Reagan turned on his amazing charm and charisma, and just stuck to basic ideas of Freedom. The rest is history. In the second debate, he absolutely crushed Carter, and we had ourselves a new President.

    • sDee

      Great stuff!

      Taking every question back to the Founding principles of limited government, balance of powers, and the original intent of the Constitution, really does seem to fit here because everything Obama does is designed to undermine all of those.

      Allen West does this. He fires up the base and pounds the leftist hacks every time by sticking to the principles and having all the facts if someone dares challenge him. I posted this a while ago: West’s fiery speech lines against the Founder’s.

      West: “What they need to understand is that I serve an almighty God”
      John Adams: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other”
      Patrick Henry: “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded…on the gospel of Jesus Christ”

      West: “Continue to stand up for those principles of limited government”
      Patrick Henry: “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the government-lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”

      West: (The Founders) were talking about a place, the United States of America, where the preeminence would be with the individual, their rights, their freedoms, their sovereignty
      Benjamin Franklin: “In free governments, the rulers are the servants, and the people their superiors and sovereigns.”

      West: “We cannot allow empty suit leadership in the United States of America. People are getting positions of power and leadership in this country who…are totally inept, they are ignorant, they are totally void of understanding the principles that which makes the United States of America great and exceptional”
      John Adams: “In my many years I have come to the conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm and three or more is a congress.”

      West: “You know the principle of the Tea Party is the free market. If you have individual sovereignty you will have a free market.
      James Madison: “The rights of persons, and the rights of property, are the objects, for the protection of Government was instituted.”
      Alexander Hamilton: “In the main it will be found that a power over a man’s support (salary) is a power over his will.”

      West: “If you have limited government then you will have fiscal responsibility.
      Thomas Jefferson: “I place economy among the first and most important of republican virtues, and public debt as the greatest of the dangers to be feared.”

      West: There is a child behind me who is 4 months old. This is a moral decision we have to make. Are we going to be so selfish that we will bankrupt the future for our children and grand children?”
      Benjamin Franklin: “But, ah, think what you do when you run in debt: you give another power over your liberty.”

      West: The American genome, our DNA, is built on liberty, freedom and democracy. And we for 236 years have passed that on to subsequent generations.
      Thomas Jefferson: It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle, which if acted on, will save one-half the wars of the world. Taxation follows public debt, and in its train wretchedness and oppression.

      West: The most important responsibility of the Federal government is to provide for the common defense.
      Samuel Adams: “The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil constitution, are worth defending against all hazards: And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks.”

      West: Putin would not be talking about putting Naval bases in Cuba if we had a leader like Ronald Reagan who talked about peace thorough strength.
      George Washington: “To be prepared for war is one of the most effectual means of preserving peace.”

      West: “In 3 ½ years, 9.3 million more Americans in poverty, a 46% increase in Americans on food stamps. We have a government that is taking your dollars and running radio and TV ads for people to get on food stamps. Now you can sit at home and put money on your EBT card right into an account. Free healthcare, free cell phones, free education”
      Benjamin Franklin: “When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.

      West: The top 25% of wage earning households in America pay 90% of Federal income taxes. The question I’m going to ask Mr. Obama what is fair? What is fair share when 47% of wage earning households in this country pay absolutely nothing? Are you just looking to expand that entitlement class, so that they can become your permanent economic dependent voting electoral bloc? So that national level elections hence, and for all will always fall to you? Do you believe, as King George once believed, that we are here to be ruled, not governed?
      Thomas Jefferson: “The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”
      Samuel Adams: The Utopian schemes of re-distribution of the wealth…are as visionary and impractical as those which vest all property in the Crown.

        You are amazing! Sdee, you should be teaching History at the High School level! Take me three days to put all that together, and you did it in twenty minutes. Absolutely blew me away! Kudos!

          Thank you – that is a fine compliment. Food for thought – if I could open just a few young minds………

            The, “young minds,” are the realm of the Liberals. We lost that particular territory, because we simply were not paying attention. It will take another twenty years, to get that one back. That’s the price you pay for stupidity. Tell that to the Good ‘Ole boys.

        Too bad West is not running for president.

      Sadly, we do not have a candidate with such amazing charm. The other sad reality is that the candidate of today does not believe what Reagan believes, if we are to believe what the candidate says.

      No matter how slanted the debate questions are, conservatism will win out because it is part of the DNA of the majority of the people. The problem is with the candidate and not with conservatism or the MSM. The day that Romney has his “moment” will be the day he acknowledges that Romneycare was a mistake. As with all true conversions, one repents of his offenses no matter how big they are.

        “The day that Romney has his “moment” will be the day he acknowledges that Romneycare was a mistake.”

        I agree! It would pivotal. I do not know that it is in him. Not sure why – but just not there.

          I can picture him doing it and then he would be dominating O in almost every state. It would not be 1984, but it will be better than either 200 or 2004!

        It is true what you say, Puritan. I am sure I am not the only who got your message.

        These are trying times, indeed. I hope we survive them.

          I am with you there 531! I also hope we will survive.

          Nothing is for certain and if Romney does win, it would not calm anyone’s fears until O relinquishes power. We have never had an issue of such transfer before, but we never had a man who so hated, gutted, and scoffs at our founding documents and principles be in such a high office before, either.

            Surreal, I think, is the appropriate term, to describe it. If you don’t like big words, Madness might suffice.

    Thanks RS for this post.

    Excellent set of suggestions by Governor Palin and in doing so, she takes the opportunity to “put it” to President Obama.

  • repubboy

    Sarah Palin, what can you say, A “Good Mom and an American”

    Yeah, we don’t have to worry about it in the short term because the economy won’t implode until he’s out of office. Then the leftoids can blame Romney, just like they blamed Bush for the housing market collapse when it was a direct result of Carter’s Community Reinvestment Act.

  • Conservative_Hippie

    I thought Sarah’s advice was especially spot on!

    The Media permeates all over Europe, and goes back to America through networks – it’s a virus and it’s big.
