Palin: I am still considering a run for president

Sarah Palin says she is still considering a run for president because she says it’s time for this country be put back on the right track. That being said she welcomes Rick Perry into the race as she believes that voters deserve a good debate and, as she always says, the more the merrier.

On the debate last night, she said she was proud of Newt for standing his ground and calling out the moderators on what she said was a question about superficial issues that don’t really matter, especially given the difficult times we are in. She was also glad to see more candidates duking it out.

There’s much more to the interview, including a few one liners that could show up as slogans in a future campaign (full clip below):

  1. I hope she’s not holding back out of concern for media attacks against her family. They should know the score by now, and they’re not that thin-skinned. They’ve already been forged in the crucible. Besides, the New Media and the Tea Party have got her back. We are delighted to run interference for her and show up the Old Media for the clueless, obsolete moonbats that they are. Game on!

    1. It is not just criticisms just and unjust. It is the open death threats that worry me. I have never seen such hatred. Not only against her, but against her family and even friends. This is close to getting out of hand.

  2. Let’s see, an ex governor who brought her state from AA+ rating (where our nation is currently) to a AAA rating, left her state with a 13 billion surplus, and fought and ended the corruption in her state in both parties. On top of that, she reduced spending and earmarks, but this woman who says and does what she means is so stupid. Meanwhile, I think I’ll support another candidate because there is a good chance he or she might do as they say, but chances are they will become part of the corrupted establishment we call government, and not only that the media told me what I should do because I am so smart just like our other government officials. We are doing so well as a nation and just because Bush messed things up so badly with all his spending & governmental interference, we have Obama, our savior, who has doubled the spending, imposed even more governmental regulations, and has succeeded into getting our debt rating lowered to AA+ while food stamp users have increased, employment has decreased, and gas & food prices are twice as high, but don’t worry because your broken government will help you stay lazy & unproductive, that is the Liberal way. Palin, can you believe the gall of this woman trying to take us away from this wonderful life that we have prepared for our children & future generations. Don’t believe me, ask Britain how well their system is working, and just think, we might be next!

  3. Who says the smartest guy in the room has to be a guy? Sarah has developed a sixth sense about the political scene today. She’s way ahead of the pack and hasn’t even gotten in harness yet. Some didn’t like her comments on Bachman and Gingrich, but why would you alienate those that might be important in supporting your campaign later? Especially, if your still in the throes of the decision making process ! The skill she has developed in handling a hostile press corps is very evident at the fair, obviously a venue that she enjoys, among us.

  4. Right. She’s only in her 40’s goshdaskit. We can get to her soon as she gets to more and more of us. Perry would be a large stride in the right direction. Palin could very well be that second stride. Perhaps she can help Perry make that first giant step, away from O’, progressives, and the slippery slope that slides into full-blown socialism.

    I’m excited about 1PM in S.C!

  5. This was a great interview…and fun to watch.
    I caught it last night, and have enjoyed watching it again here.
    It was a fun episode of Hannity all the way around.

    Herman Cain was great, and even sang a little…he has a great voice!

    It’s great to see Sarah having so much fun.
    I was thinking back…
    And I don’t think she ever ‘announced’ that she had a desire to run for President this year.

    Maybe she did, and I missed it.
    Her repeated statements of “I’m thinking about it” or “I’m considering it”…have always come as an answer to people asking her about it.
    [At least, from what I have seen.]

    So if she decides not to run this time around…I hope that people won’t be so disappointed that they hold it against her.

    This prospect of her entering the race has been has been one of our making…her fans, and the people who love her.
    And the political discourse as a whole has been enriched by her being in it.
    She will always be a force to be reckoned with.

  6. And on the same day that Texas Governor Perry announces his run for US President, the Good Lord looks down and seems to say something that resounds with the phrase, and the song, “God Blessed Texas”, and it is raining from north to south in Texas today!

    I think my original raindance yesterday, with the “aboriginal american headress and loincloth as thick as a peterbilt mudflap” didn’t hurt none either…didn’t help, but didn’t hurt. Lots of justified praying folks in Texas today. Look up! Here’s your answer 🙂

    1. I know, Rshill…isn’t it wonderful!
      It’s a welcome break from their long ordeal of drought and brutal heat.
      I hope my neighbors to the south get more in coming days.
      We got a good little rain last night too.
      🙂

  7. Folks, it’s been 20 yrs for real conservatives to have a real conservative choice in an election…. Sarah will be in soon and we can throw out the nose clips in 2012!!!!
    She is the ONLY candidate (potential candidate) with a stellar record of conservative achievements, and has ALWAYS stood on principle! The others, not so much.
    Vet all of them I dare you.

    Palin 2012!

  8. Rick Perry will be making his announcement today in South Carolina in the 1:00 hr.
    It should be good.

    1. Sarah Palin as well as millions of other common sense American will like this:

      (Guardian) — The climate sceptics can finally get excited about the 2012 election: Rick Perry, their candidate of choice, is about to officially throw his hat in the ring.

      Perry calls global warming “all one contrived phony mess that is falling apart under its own weight.” Unlike many of the other GOP presidential candidates, he hasn’t expressed concern about climate change in the past, so he won’t have to do any back-pedaling. Notorious climate denier Marc Morano is a big fan: “Based on climate views alone, anyone who is holding their nose voting for Mitt Romney because there’s no other viable candidate will now rejoice to have an option with Rick Perry.”

      1. Boeing wants to create some SC jobs but the NLRB is fighting that. We’ve all heard this. Perry will no doubt address that during his speech.

        Gonna whoop the stuffin’ out of he who shall remain brainless.

        1. Rshill, I just don’t trust Perry. He used to be a democrat and all of sudden decided to become a republican?! My question is why; why did he change party affiliation? Until I know the answer to that question, I don’t trust him.

          1. 1. Back in the day, a democrat could be a perfectly fine, strict constructionist and fiscally disciplined doood. Are there any democrats that fit that description today? They are pretty much a bunch of Marxists now, anathema to our founding principles.

            2. He saw the democrat party leaving him at breakneck speed, so he joined one that which was much closer to his ideals. Perhaps he was raised a democrat and saw the light…aka…grew up…like Reagan did.

            3. He found his bigboy pants and put them on.

            4. Gore grossed him out.
            5. Gore grossed him out.
            6. Gore grossed him out.
            7. Gore grossed him out.

          2. 1. Back in the day, a democrat could be a perfectly fine, strict constructionist and fiscally disciplined doood. Are there any democrats that fit that description today? They are pretty much a bunch of Marxists now, anathema to our founding principles.

            2. He saw the democrat party leaving him at breakneck speed, so he joined one that which was much closer to his ideals. Perhaps he was raised a democrat and saw the light…aka…grew up…like Reagan did.

            3. He found his bigboy pants and put them on.

            4. Gore grossed him out.
            5. Gore grossed him out.
            6. Gore grossed him out.
            7. Gore grossed him out.

            1. I agree with 4,5,6, and 7. I might even agree with number 3. Number 1 and 2 I have issue with. “Back in the day” is how far back 1800’s? 1980 is npot far back enough becuase we know the destruction caused by Jimmy Carter. Maybe 1960’s? No, can’t be then either becuase the dems were pro segregationist, i.e. KKK and Senator Byrd. Beyond that point I wasn’t even a gleem in mother’s eye. I know why Reagan left the Dems, but why did Perry leave them is my point; what was it that caused hiim to see the “light” as you say? I can give you proof of what caused Reagan to see the light, but give me proof for Perry’s light changing moment.

      2. Im still holding my nose on Rick Perry, hes way to chummy with La Raza and Acorn…besides Sarah thinks Global warming is a bunch of snake oil salesmen

        1. Chummy with Acorn? Why would he be “chummy with Acorn”? I’m sure you have an excellent reason for saying this. What is it?

            1. Do you know what was going on in that picture? Was he signing some legislation? If so, what legislation?

              I believe that so often, one word is worth a thousand pictures.

              1. Rick Perry upon signing Texas’ supported DREAM ACT, granting in state tuition to illegal aliens:

                “Educacion es el futuro, y si se puede.”

                Translation: “Education is the future” and throwing in Cesar Chavez’s slogan: [and Obama’s] “Yes we can!” for good measure.

                1. Hi…that picture is apparently from 2001 when Texas granted in state tuition to immigrants who had graduated from a Texas High School and who could demonstrate 3 years residency and who pledge to pursue legal path to citizenship. That ain’t so horrible is it?

                  Acorn wasn’t even part of the American Lexicon then Carol! 2001? C’mon.

                  If you show me pic of Perry wearing an Acorn t-shirt or posing with them since they became known, that would be a horse of a different color. This horse is lame, bobbled, swayback, and malnourished.

              2. Rick Perry upon signing Texas’ supported DREAM ACT, granting in state tuition to illegal aliens:

                “Educacion es el futuro, y si se puede.”

                Translation: “Education is the future” and throwing in Cesar Chavez’s slogan: [and Obama’s] “Yes we can!” for good measure.

        2. Chummy with Acorn? Why would he be “chummy with Acorn”? I’m sure you have an excellent reason for saying this. What is it?

        3. Chummy with Acorn? Why would he be “chummy with Acorn”? I’m sure you have an excellent reason for saying this. What is it?

    1. I think that Romney knows his time is almost over, again. I think that he knows he won’t get past Palin and Perry. Notice his demeanor during the debate? The fire is going out. Maybe he had a talk with Newt and found out who they are ultimately going to back and finance. Perry and Palin will likely be the last two running, and the media will ultimately favor Perry and shut down Palin. But then Perry might pick Palin to run with him. Then Palin can take a second seat to Perry kind of like Hillarious did with Barry. You gotta keep the minions happy somehow.

      1. “the media will ultimately favor Perry and shut down Palin.”

        I don’t where you’ve been, but the MSM/Democrat Party has been trying to shut down Gov. Palin since 2008, and they have failed miserably.

        They *can’t* beat her and they know it. Furthermore, if Gov. Palin runs, there’s one direction for her to go in terms of public opinion: up.

        And this is just too much:

        “But then Perry might pick Palin to run with him. Then Palin can take a second seat to Perry kind of like Hillarious did with Barry. You gotta keep the minions happy somehow.”

        You should do something about your fear of powerful women; there will only be more of them in the years to come. Today, women make up the majority of college grads, and I believe they’ve taken the lead in law school. Med school, I’m not sure about, either, but I have no doubt it will follow suit soon enough. There will be more and more women CEOs of major companies and owners of small businesses. Women have a slight edge in the overall population, and most women are more organized and better networked than most men: they hear a guy like you, and they laugh; then they turn out to vote in droves.

        If Gov. Palin is our nominee, as I believe she will be, she is going to win the women’s vote by a large margin. Women who call her an idiot today will hear her in interviews and in the debates, and they’ll wonder how the hell it ever was that someone convinced them that this capable, experienced executive was made out to be a bimbo barbie doll. Some will think they’re alone, because they live in blue-blue cities, so that when they meet another woman who supports Gov. Palin, they’ll laugh together about their secret; they’ll feel mischievous, voting for a Republican. At first, when they overhear people calling Gov. Palin dumb, unqualified, etc., they’ll just give each other looks, roll their eyes, etc.

        But eventually they’ll say something. And saying something, they’ll find a few more women just like themselves.

        College campuses will be big. Girls of 18-22 may call themselves liberals, but the truth is that being a liberal is just what they know: it’s what most everyone around them says you have to be to be a decent person; it’s what their professors shove down their throats every day.

        Recent college grads living back home with their parents because they can’t find a full-time job will be another demographic that will begin to see Gov. Palin in a different light.

        They’ll see a woman running for President, they’ll see how tough she is, and they won’t be able to help admiring her.

        Most people who actually learn the truth about Gov. Palin admire her. And why shouldn’t they? Liberal women have already started to grudgingly admit that while they don’t agree with her views, she did a good job as governor of Alaska… and they like her style.

        And to the extent that any of them are even slightly on the fence, it might just be a comment like yours that’s the final straw, the one that causes them to say, “Damn these jerks.”

        But maybe that won’t really be the final straw. What it might be is that they start to realize that Gov. Palin is feminism personified: she has not sacrificed work for family or vice versa; she hasn’t limited herself in any way.

        Gov. Palin is a *unique* person. She’s *not* Hillary Clinton. She is 100% self-made, and she is 100% real fighter — she’s tougher than all the men in the GOP and the Democrat Party combined, period.

        She’s not going to ride shotgun this time around.

        As for the “minions” comment, we’re not minions. We’re just people who’ve had as much as we can stand from the Beltway Establishment. And if the blue-blazer, go-along-to-get-along, Establishment GOP thinks it can trash the best candidate we’ve got, a real worker who can start to fix this mess the wimps in the GOP have helped make — if the GOP thinks they can savage Gov. Palin, whom we feel speaks for us, and still count on conservatives’ support, think again, fellas.

        You want to run another loser in 2012, vote for him or her in the primary — that’s your right. As Gov. Palin often says, competitive primaries are good all-around. But don’t think for a second you can take the MSM/Democrat Party’s line of attack against her and expect us to take it lying down. To quote another powerful woman and feminist role model, Tammy Bruce, there will be no more free shots.

        1. Your perspective is that which comes from believing that we have a free electoral process, and the citizens are in charge. My perspective is that which comes from believing that a small group of elites choose our options, promote who they want promoted, and tear down who they want torn down. Since money buys votes, those with the money choose who will be president.

          My predictions are not based on what should happen, but rather the patterns that I see emerging over time. Media created Sarah Palin. She only has a national audience because they allow it. If the media ignored Sarah Palin after the last election, you wouldn’t be making your comment post above. Unless you live in Alaska and already knew about her personally.

          I think that people need to learn to look for the trends in politics, and then look to see who controls the trends. It might bring a new perspective. We are minions and useful idiots to the political elite. We do have the power to remove them, but we don’t even know how to play the game that they are playing. We are playing the game that they created for us within their game.

          America need to call it like it is and break out of the left/right mindset.

          1. “Your perspective is that which comes from believing that we have a free electoral process, and the citizens are in charge. My perspective is that which comes from believing that a small group of elites choose our options, promote who they want promoted, and tear down who they want torn down. Since money buys votes, those with the money choose who will be president.”

            I agree — that’s how it’s been. Only I don’t accept that dynamic as legitimate, so I’m going to fight it, and the best way I can think of to do that is by supporting Gov. Palin.

            I don’t like these people in Washington, D.C., and I don’t accept them. I don’t think they have anything to do with the lives of the people they’re supposed to represent. And I believe Perry and Romney are just more of the same. I’d probably clamp a pair of vise-grip pliers on my nose and vote for either of these men, were one to become our nominee — but that’s all I’d do; I wouldn’t give their campaigns a dime. First of all, I think they’d lose. Obama’s plan to raise $1B doesn’t show he’s confident; it shows just the opposite: he knows he needs to be able to drown out his opponent, so he can lie about himself and his opponent with impunity. Last time around, Obama didn’t raise anywhere near that sum — he raised around $600M; and it’s impossible to say how much of that money was raised illegally, from US or even overseas donors.

            What this should tell you is that whomever faces Obama doesn’t just have to run against Obama’s positions, but against *how Obama runs*, because Obama will cheat like a madman and the MSM will look the other way. There are *hundreds of billions* of dollars floating all over the place — there are billions of dollars that have *disappeared* from official budgets; they can’t be accounted for. If you think Obama is above shunting some of these vanished dollars into his own reelection campaign, you better think again. This guy is our Hugo Chavez: he’ll burn this country to the ground to pursue his vision. And if you listen to the left, read what they write in their papers and on their blogs, you should know full well that they’re willing to help him do it.

            The person who faces Obama is going to have to be able to go around the MSM and address the American people, and she’s going to have to be willing to call out Obama and the MSM relentlessly. We send in a Romney or a Perry, the first thing that will happen is the MSM will go through their lives with a fine-toothed comb, looking for anything they can use to destroy them. Want an example? Try this:

            http://www.google.com/#sclient=psy&hl=en&site=&source=hp&q=romney+dog+roof+car&pbx=1&oq=romney+dog+roof+car&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&gs_sm=e&gs_upl=1478l8873l0l9247l31l17l0l0l0l0l0l0ll0l0&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=c88d52fddef0ee5d&biw=948&bih=440

            The GOP nominee is going to have to be able to set the narrative, and call Obama out on whatever he has done, and whatever he tries to do during the election. If the GOP nominee can’t do this, MSM will talk about things like the stories in that Google search above (which alone might be enough to destroy a plastic, finger-in-the-wind pol like Romney), and while the GOP nominee is explaining himself/herself, the Obama campaign will be busy raising millions from what the MSM will call “a wave of grassroots contributions”, while conveniently leaving out the names of the donors: Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Minnie and Mickey Mouse, Porky Pig, and Spongebob Squarepants.

            So when conservatives are considering who to vote for in the primaries, they need to vet the hell out of their own candidates. E.g., I’m a big fan of Rep. Bachmann — I live in NYC, and I’ve sent her a couple hundred bucks over the years, and I don’t regret a single donation. But I will not be supporting her in 2012 for many reasons, just one of which is that her husband is a time bomb waiting to be set off by the MSM. The guy sounds like Liberace and runs a specialty therapy practice to “cure” homosexuals and make them straight. Were Rep. Bachmann to win the nomination, you’d have gay guys coming out of the woodwork telling stories about how her husband came on to them, or how they had affairs with them — and that line would dominate the news cycle for weeks, meanwhile Obama (and his campaign apparatus) would be out from underneath the magnifying glass.

            Lastly, re “If the media ignored Sarah Palin after the last election, you wouldn’t be making your comment post above.”

            Yes… so? If Right Scoop hadn’t made this fine website, we wouldn’t be here chatting. But RS did, so we are. That’s how events unfold; that’s how opportunities land on your doorstep to be seized or missed.

            I guarantee you the left wishes they left Gov. Palin alone after the 2008 election. But they saw her — rightly — as a major threat that would be sure to reemerge down the line, so they tried to destroy her. It didn’t seem to them like a gamble, so much as simply Alinsky-business-as-usual; I doubt they ever considered the possibility that their activities might backfire on them.

            But like I said, and as everyone with the most basic powers of observation should understand by now, Gov. Palin is a unique person. She turned the tables on the left, on the MSM/Democrat Party, on the GOP Establisment, and has been handing them their asses on a platter week after week, month after month ever since. They have torn her life apart and come up empty.

            Do you think Obama could survive politically were the MSM to vet him with such gusto? Do you think he could survive politically were all his emails from his time in the Senate to be released? Do you think Romney’s or Perry’s emails would be so boring — i.e., in the best sense of the word — as Gov. Palin’s?

            Please.

            What you wrote above about how things *have been done in the past* is correct; but don’t shrug and accept it as a dynamic we have to accept as normal. Don’t adjust yourself to working around the distortions of the MSM. This is our country, not the MSM/Democrat Party’s, and not the Establishment GOP’s — those are institutions, and they’re rotted to the core; they’re weak and ready to fall, and they know it.

            So yes, but for the turning of Chance’s wheel, we wouldn’t know about Gov. Palin. But we do; she’s arrived just in time for the fight and is set to go; she’s sharpening the pennies in her pumps as we speak.

            At moments of crisis, one can boldly seize the moment and fight, risking a loss for the chance to win; or one can hesitate and take what one feels to be the safe route… and guarantee oneself the same loss, albeit delayed.

            “You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor and you will have war.” — Winston Churchill

            1. I hear what you are saying. Barry would be easy to beat. Anyone running could, theoretically stomp him into the ground without much effort. The question is, will they? McCain threw the election. Fox didn’t even vet Barry. Supporting McCain and ignoring Barry’s past was helping get him elected. It worked like a charm, while keeping the right engaged.

              McCain goes after his opponents pretty hard in AZ, why didn’t he in that election? He backed off, gave Barry way too much respect, and used political correctness to ignore his past.

              Why didn’t McCain harp on the fact that Obama and Hillary went missing for three days while Bildeberg was meeting? Not to mention getting the press corps on a plane expecting Barry to be there, then taking off without him.

              Why didn’t McCain press the birth certificate issue? Why won’t the next guy? If you want to win, you don’t hold back. Barry’s grandmother said she was there when he was born in Kenya, and on tape.

              You talk like the left are the only ones who won’t vet a candidate, or is protecting them. Perry won’t be any different. They won’t go after his record hard core, or his openly admitting that he attended Bilderberg. They won’t strike him down for selling out Texan’s property rights for an international highway.

              They won’t call him out for professing he is a Christian, then saying America is the last hope for mankind.

              All it will take with Barry is to show video of his campaign promises, then point out that all of them have been broken, and he has expanded Bush’s agenda. That would turn the libtards against him, and would destroy the independent vote for him, if it already hasn’t been.

              Palin is cheering on the GOP establishment candidates like Newt and Perry. Is that the stark difference that we are looking for, or do we want someone who won’t be really nice to his/her opponents. We need a shark toothed, no holds barred candidate. I don’t see it in Palin.

              Every comment she makes allows me to vet her. It isn’t the things I agree with that concern me. It is the ones that show me how she is working within, and with the establishment neo-con power group. Such as supporting McCain for re-election. Or Perry. You either have convictions, or you compromise. Which one is Palin? Can’t be both. She makes a good cheerleader, but I would like to see her supporting Paul rather than Gingrich. I would even settle for her dropping back from supporting anyone, and just do her own thing. So far she isn’t doing that.

              Maybe she will get serious and start denouncing most of them. We’ll see. If not, then she won’t be a conduit for changing anything.

  9. This woman, is chompin at the bit………
    that fist ,and veins buldging………wow!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. She’s going to do it. It’s her. This so-called “Tipping Point” Hannity keeps going on about… she’s right there, leading the way.

  11. She’s going to do it. It’s her. This so-called “Tipping Point” Hannity keeps going on about… she’s right there, leading the way.

  12. I was disappointed to hear her say “I was so proud of Newt Gingrich”. That guy has been screwing us for years, and even joining with the left on environmental issues and carbon taxes. Newt, in the debate, said the Fed needs to be exposed, but they are a good thing for our economy. He was pandering to the tide of people learning about the Fed, while legitimizing them, and knowing that our political elite will never touch them. Santorum did the same. They are both the worst of the worst establishment neo-cons.

    It doesn’t seem like she is very picky concerning the establishment candidates. Its like she is just a cheerleader for the GOP establishment. She gives a lot of generalities. In general, I agree with most of what she says, but she doesn’t seem to address huge issues like the cost of the wars, homeland security, and the police state in general.

    I find that most of the neo-cons seem to want to save the social systems while cutting them, as Hannity said. I think that most of them know that it won’t be possible. They ignore the real currency issues and act like we will have the world reserve currency forever. A currency backed by nothing and printed from nothing will not last. Why don’t they talk about that?

    1. Sarah is just being generous with Newt. Geez, why should she trash the guy? He’s no threat to ever be elected again. It’s a nice thing to say.

      Compared to the rest of the lot, Sarah is a Statesman.

      1. Newt is not just a bumbling ex-politician. He is an enemy of the people. It is paramount to an American public figure saying “I am so proud of Hitler for saying a good thing”.

        There is a war going on between our political elite, and the people of this country. These guys will use any form of deception to further the cause of shutting down this country, and selling it out to global control. (carbon taxes, austerity, de-industrialization, debt slavery to a central bank, etc.)

        I guess we Americans still have it too good to recognize it.

        1. Say what you will about Newt, and I have plenty of times, but he’s the smartest guy in any room that he’s in. He WAS the TEA Party in ’94 that gave us the Contract with America and he DID balance the budget despite Clinton’s prediction that it’d be 11 years—He did it in 4. Moral failings aside, Gingrich is a brilliant guy who should be utilized for his ideas. He lost me on his 3rd marriage in supporting him for the Whitehouse, but he’d be a fantastic VP or even Sec of State.

          1. So, basically, you think that he is a bumbling ex-politician rather than an enemy of the people. OK.

            His third marriage was just a sign of his moral failing on the whole. Why do we accept evil when they give us a little bit of good? I don’t even care so much about his marital issues. You are right, he is a smart guy. He has been working the American public for a lot of years, and has done a good job of making people think that he is different than the left. Meanwhile, he works with them toward the same goals.

            If this is what you want, then so be it. Most conservatives tend to agree.

          2. I agree with mike. Newt is smart and has a lot of good ideas. I would definately make him part of my cabinet or even as an advisor. My beef with Newt is he doesn’t have enough charisma to be President and he has too much baggage, but he is a wealth of knowledge.

            1. Newt in the cabinet (stick him over there beside the Spam) and a psychedelic hippie van as the presidential lemon limo. Sis boom bah!

      2. And in one line, Blackwater, you have summed up the reason why Sarah Palin is not just another politician.

        There is a huge difference between a politician and a statesman. The Founding Fathers were true statesmen, the circus in DC…….not so much.

        We need the principled leadership that only someone like Sarah Palin can provide at this dark hour in our history.

        1. Principled leaders don’t thrive in this system. Nor are they promoted by the media. Fox included. Supporting and cheerleading the RHINO establishment GOP candidates won’t help either.

    2. I saw her referencing Newt as surprising too, but diplomatic. He is a great speaker and has great intellectual grasp of issues and would be an excellent professor. He’s been on the wrong side of some issues and no doubt determined his stands in a calculated manner, which he has back-peddled on. In general, the ship has sailed and he’s still on shore.

      A currency backed by nothing is the slight of hand that Americans have been living with for a long time and it’s been denied like a horrible spouse in a bad marriage…often called “denial” in recent decades.

      Regarding debates, I maintain low expectations and watch/listen for consistency in policy and promises. Unfortunately, it’s a skimpy portion most of the time. I love genuine debates but those may only occur in debate clubs these days.

      Ultimately, P. & P. may be the last standing…but they have to stand up first.

      1. I guess that once you are on to their freak show, you can just see right through them. It just isn’t fun anymore. Maybe preparing for long term survival is getting me a bit edgy.

        I don’t think that I have ever seen a real national debate by these people. They have limited air time due to the fact that they have to get back to their gold prime time programming. Maybe dancing with the stars was coming on, or something just as important.

        1. Ron Paul is the candidate with a savy about the FED, taxes. oversized and over reaching government but he is entrenched in the massive governmental/political mechanism and the huge cast of characters and interests. I saw an interviewer ask him about ending the FED and he was less than convincing about ending it and shifted to discussing what could be done about debt, spending, entitlements and finally declared we should end many conflicts that America is involved in.

          I know precisely what you mean about Dancing With The Stars etc. Opium for the masses, so many living rooms are like Chinese opium dens with the numbing parade of mindless “shows”. I stick to science, military, history, and some music or old cinema channels and business channels. I have little expectation for a heavy weight exchanges to be sustained durings political debates. Candidates are advised and packaged like retail products and they are not in charge. Their handlers are in charge.

          I know what you mean about “edgy”.

          1. I wouldn’t mind growing my own food, cutting wood to heat the house, and working the land to get by if I could actually “own” my land. When I have to go to work to acquire Fed Res Notes because they are required by the tax collectors, it just pisses me off.

          2. Ron Paul has a good grasp of the financial aspect of our government, but to say that we should not care about who has nukes is totally stupid. And i would not want a CIC who thought letting a country that openly sponsors terrorists was fine.

            1. That has always been my issue with Representative Paul, his foreign policy. We are too far into a globalized civilization and too dependent on energy from the Middle East to ignore what goes on over there. And really, I wonder what it is going to take to get people like Ron Paul to wake up to the fact that every time Iran said they weren’t producing nuclear energy for defensive/offensive means, in fact they were.

              Depending on how much time it takes, Israel could end up being a net exporter of natural gas from the huge find offshore recently. If we cannot or will not develop and drill baby drill right here, we are going to need a friend in the ME who can affect the Arab controlled energy markets.

            2. What he was saying is that it is natural for them to want nukes. He also said that they are surrounded by countries with nukes. Including Israel. If we left them alone, and they continued to grow as a threat in the middle east, their own neighbors would take care of the problem. The problem with that is that we control most of their neighbors and have the entire middle east in fear of our tyranny upon them. This creates hatred of us and furthers the threat of terrorism on America.

              Many of these countries view us as the primary threat. Therefor instead of infighting, they will more likely band together to fight “the great evil”. So our interventionism is creating a greater threat to our national security.

              If you were being controlled and oppressed for decades, would you ever consider lashing out at your oppressors? Some would, and some wouldn’t. His history on our involvement in Iran going back to 1953 is correct. As he said 1979 was the backlash from previous intervention.

              History repeats itself. Plain and simple. Empires fall partially because they cannot fund their empires anymore. How many more countries and wars are we to engage in?

          3. I feel a bit like countries in the middle east. The American government is coming after me, and it is just a matter of time before they are at my front door telling me that my sovereignty is no longer in my possession.

            1. I have not lived in the middle east nor have I done any in depth academic study. My insight is limited to the same as most, or even the vast majority of Americans by catching news from some talk show sources and internet. The rest of the so called media is worhtless. Anyhow, we Americans have had the government coming to our doors for many generations and to an increasing degree and frequency (that’s one of the reasons I don’t like answering doors or even getting my mail. I’m kinda kidding here, however I AM a hard core “don’t tread on me” individual. Americans have already surrendered a lot of sovereignty…that’s how so many mega projects and programs have been put in place; ignore the rights of states and one-fits-all monster mommy is in charge. Think Mommy Dearest, the movie…in charge of everything and carrying an attitude of benevolence but in reality a control freak and maintaining POWER in making personal choices for citizens. Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society approach. That said, I trust there is time for Americans to rescue their Statue of Liberty, primarily due to the, “it’s the economy, stupid”, factor. I don’t think there is any motivating force greater than that one in causing Americans to awaken as they search their pockets, sofas etc for coins. It appears to me that enough Americans, by Nov 2012, will be out of their stupor just long enough to vote out the current regime. That is about the best I can see as a good bet.. . The replacement is not something I would wager on right now. It will be an improvement and we may have to “settle” for someone less than our personal conservative ideal.

              If any knocking at your door occurs, check your memory to see if you ordered a pizza delivery. Don’t let it get cold.

              1. Yeah, I agree. I was primarily referring to the knock at my door by those who are enforcing martial law, and are there to take me to the camp to sign me up because I refused to up to that point.

                For now, most of them stay at bay as long as I pay taxes like a good boy, but since I speak regularly against the police state, I expect that I am on a couple of lists somewhere. When it comes time to really clamp down on “constitution supporters” I will get the knock, knock, knock, knock………bam goes the door.

                Hopefully I won’t be there.

              2. I think that our current idea of liberty and freedom is a little too weak to save us from federal tyranny. That is why I view Ron Paul as the only candidate that will slow down the progress toward economic slavery in the US. Not that I think he would last long or change much, but he would give me something to support based on conviction and integrity. He would certainly slow things down a bit.

                If Paul made it in, I think that it would force the hand of the left/right, and they would have to show their true colors. We would probably see bipartisan super majorities doing all the really bad stuff. This might wake up even more people to who they really are.

                I am hoping that before the primary is over, our economy takes some real drastic hits that freak out Americans. As you say, “its the economy stupid”. If that doesn’t work, hold on.

  13. I just love to watch Sarah work. CNN thought they were really getting an exclusive interview from Sarah earlier in the day. However, they did not know Sarah was doing what she does best. Getting the free media coverage from the media that hate her.

    She looks like she is ready to get it done. She will not be a president that votes present after all the lifting has been done. She will be giving the congress direction, and reasons to move this country in the right direction.

    Behind that great smile is a tough women, who knows how to get the job done.

    1. Sarah Palin told Sean Hannity: “I am still considering a run.” Any doubt still whether Sarah Palin is not running or she’ll back out at the eleventh hour?

        1. She then proceeded to say that there is still time and the field is by no means set. That tells me she’s running and she’s just waiting for the right moment to dominate the airwaves, and she will! 🙂

          1. Any moment she were to choose would be a moment that Sarah Palin could “dominate the airwaves”. Just messin’ with ya a bit…you know I agree.

          2. Nor does she intend to be a kingmaker, she endorses none of the candidates (not even Perry, as some thought she would). Perry just announced today, and some still insist that she’ll never run or it’s too late for her to run.

            The date of her presidential announcement is sovereignly hers alone and her family. She’s under no oblligation to let the media know in advance of her decision, events schedule. That keeps the LSM going berserk, as reading NewYork Times, Mediaite and the lefty blogs yesterday, they can’t figure out Sarah Palin and she keep’em guessing.

            That date is drawing near.

  14. She is as exceptional as the nation and people she loves. What a great President you will be Mrs.Palin!!!

    1. What a timing, setting and perfect background with the local folks in Iowa for the interview. The crowd feed off the enthusiasm from her and she thrives on the energy from the crowd.

      This is just a prelude and a foretaste to Sept 3rd. Oh, just wait for that moment when Sarah Palin to keynote Tea Party Rally in Iowa on Sept 3rd.

    3. “She owned the crowd”: And thats exactly why the left go into demon possessed convulsions every time she appears.

    4. Agreed! I loved the way she looked away from Sean and periodically spoke to the people, real people not the made up masses that Dems invoke whenever it’s politically expedient!

        1. My favorite line was this one:

          “We don’t need a fundamental transformation of America, we need a restoration of America.”

          1. She says what normal people think, only the way she says it, the words pop like the snap of a whip… or the BOOM of a nightstick. 🙂

  15. Outstanding interview!

    RightScoop, thanks for posting so quick. You almost beat SarahPAC. I assume they thought this was a pretty good interview as well.

    Game On!!
