Sarah Palin: We’ve got Paul Ryan’s back and will call out the media for their lies and distortions

Sarah Palin says that Paul Ryan is sure to be vetted and scrutinized, but that she among others has his back and will call out the media for their lies and distortions. She goes on to say that when she was thrust in that spotlight that she didn’t have a lot of support from people in the McCain campaign to defender her and explain what her record was all about because they were protecting their own future interests. But she says that we won’t let that happen to Paul Ryan:

I just listened to the Gov’s interview on Faux News – while I am always impressed with her and generally support most of her issues – two things immediately came to mind after her answer to Breem about supporting the GOPE ticket: 1. She stated in one of her most outstanding speeches that it was not enough to change up the team if the uniform stayed the same – I see GOPE, PPC & CC in both of these losers on the GOP ticket – same uniform, same team—– I will vote downstream for Tea Partiers but will not vote for either D or R for Prez unless the R is the Gov………………. 2. She also stated several times in various interviews, etc. over the past couple of years that one should never put their full faith & trust in any politician because one will be disappointed…so true…. while I… Read more »

Hi susiepuma? How the heck are you doing? In response to your question, go back and read the Governor’s FB note from last night: http://www.facebook.com/sarahpalin/posts/10151109537628588 In the last three paragraphs, she writes: Candidate Obama promised to unite all America, but President Obama has cynically divided us again and again in his efforts to win reelection by playing identity politics and class warfare and pitting one group against another. Candidate Obama promised us a “fundamentally transformed” America, and that is the only promise he’s delivered on. We can see now what his idea of “hope” is. Now we want change. He has failed to lead, so We the People must lead. And our leadership starts at the ballot box on November 6th. Please continue to focus on the presidential race and on helping Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, but it’s also imperative that we get involved in the nation’s important House… Read more »

Good to see you posting Susie. I am as disappointed as you are. However, I believe Sarah is taking a longer term view because she analysed all of the circumstances prior to Oct. 5th. She will build the base in Congress and among the populace in order to make a future run when she can achieve what must be done. Take care.

Hate to say it but I agree with those who doubt
palin will be speaking at the Convention. I could believe that they might throw her some off time/minimal role or place such restrictions on what she could say that she would decline. I could believe that they’re stretching it out because they know her supporters are going to be unhappy and still may withhold money.

If that happens there will be no way she campaigns with the ticket. The GOP will encourage her to go out and cheerlead to drum up the vote.

“She goes on to say that when she was thrust in that spotlight that she didn’t have a lot of support from people in the McCain campaign to defender her and explain what her record was all about because they were protecting their own future interests. ” Nothing says what the establishment is all about more than that to have people from your campaign just worrying about their own interest kudos to Palin for calling them out, the unfortunate thing is that some of the people that worked on the McCain campaign are working with Romney.

I am already there after what they did, and are still doing, to the RP delegates. RP got more delegates than any candidate other than Romney, and has not backed out, yet they won’t even give him 15 minutes. That is how it goes. The establishment GOP is ramrodding Romney through.

What purpose does giving RP time at the convention serve? The establishment isn’t ramrodding him through, he got the necessary delegates, the end. RP didn’t, so why should he be ENTITLED to a spot? Santorum got a spot, but why’s that? Because he had the second most delegates, and was runner up. Besides, Rand is speaking, and he’s a far better, more coherent, CONSERVATIVE speaker.

I take it that you didn’t follow the delegate race situations, and all the back door dirty deals made with the GOP from state to state. There is a lot to it, and my guess is that you don’t really care, so I won’t go into it. Paul did win a plurality of states that, according to the GOP rules, gave him an automatic speaking spot. He was booted out regardless of the rule. Either that, or they changed the rules to keep him out. I don’t really remember. The point is, that when you watch massive fraud and dirty tricks enacted by the establishment GOP, you tend to lose your willingness to support them, and it doesn’t give you a warm fuzzy. There is plenty of testimony, and video proof of massive fraud. You can find it if you want to. There are even some court battles, because the… Read more »

LM*O! She shills like crazy for the GOPE machine and yet they’re going to dump all over her? Na. Don’t believe it myself. She’ll be a surprise speaker or something like that. Even Romney realises he has to give all those ‘conservative’ hockey mums something to cheer for. After all, its only fair for him and his friends to keep their end of the quid pro quo for all the shilling she’s done for the godless RINO establishment in the past couple of years. Nah!

I like Sarah Palin well enough, but she is a GOP pundit. She doesn’t go out and hammer on republicans when they are wrong. She is not a rebel in the sense that she has a specific cause, and she won’t let anyone get away with going against it. When she criticizes the right, it is very mild at best.

I don’t knock her for this, she is simply playing the role that she has chosen. She is making a living doing it as well. Nothing wrong with that. If she wanted to establish herself as an full on anti establishment individual, then she would have stayed away from McCain after the 08 run. If she was continually knocking down the establishment, she wouldn’t have the air time and the money that comes from it.

CBDenver

I disagree with your statements that Palin doesn’t “hammer on republicans” when they are wrong. But the reality is that America has only two viable political parties at this time. The Democrats have been taken over by the radical left and represent an existential threat to our country. The leftist Democrats must be defeated. After that there will be plenty of time to go after the establishment Republicans.

I am curious, does she speak well of the Ryan plan, avoid the details, or speak as though it is thoroughly inadequate? I really haven’t heard her comment on it.

John_Frank
Guest

She says that it is good first step, but that it does not go far enough in pushing for a balance budget.

Simply put, she supports Ryan’s proposed medicare reforms as part of an overall effort to balance the budget as quickly as possible. In that regard, she supports what Paul proposed, i.e to balance the budget within 3 years, not the 8-10 years as Romney proposes, or the 24 years as Ryan proposes.

Listen carefully to the answer she gave when she was asked whether she would be speaking on the stump with the Romney/Ryan ticket.

John_Frank
Guest

How is it a disservice to speak what I believe to be the truth? Also, by raising the issue, it gives people an opportunity to let their voices be heard, so that the RNC and Romney campaign will understand that denying her an opportunity to speak at the convention before a nationally televised audience without being told what to say would be one of the dumbest things that the RNC and Romney campaign could do if Romney wants to win this election. P.S. I suspect the problem is that she will not “shill for Romney,” but rather wants to give a speech which reflects what she said in her FB note. Unfortunately, that does not fit with the stated theme of the convention, which is to “sell Romney really hard.” I mean let’s get real, can you imagine that she would be able to give the speech that Paul Ryan… Read more »

People are entitled to their opinion, but it was pretty obvious from what she said when asked if she would be stumping for the Romney/Ryan ticket.

She made it clear. She said that when she decided not to run that she would be a help mate.

She went on to say that she was stepping back to allow new voices to be heard, and that she would be be speaking independently around the country to right of center and independent conservative voters.

Instead, she will be continuing to do what she said she was going to do in her email response to Peter Boyer:

Palin is keeping the dates open in late August, just in case. In any event, she says, she plans to be politically active between now and November, starting with a Michigan Tea Party appearance, sponsored by Americans for Prosperity. “No matter the Romney campaign strategy,” she says, “I intend to do all I can to join others in motivating the grassroots made up of independents and constitutional conservatives who can replace Barack Obama at the ballot box.”

Curious, if the italicized text is an e-mail response from Gov. Palin, why is it written in the third person?

Because I italicized the whole paragraph.

The quote from the email reads:

“No matter the Romney campaign strategy,” she says, “I intend to do all I can to join others in motivating the grassroots made up of independents and constitutional conservatives who can replace Barack Obama at the ballot box.”

I have the feeling you are right. Back in 1976, after nominating Ford, the Convention asked Reagan to say a few words. Of the cuff, he made a short speech that convinced them that they had nominated the wrong man. In 1980, Ford would wish he had that decision to do over again.

Some additional thoughts: – If the RNC and Romney campaign allow her to give a speech which reflects what she wrote in her FB note, then she will be speaking at the convention. – If the RNC and the Romney campaign insists that she give a speech that is a really hard sell of Romney, then she will not be speaking at the convention. Based on everything that has transpired, the Boyer article, the interviews, the FB note and the timing, my gut tells me that the RNC and the Romney campaign will not allow her to give the speech that she wanted to give, and as such she will not be speaking at the convention. Keep in mind that Ed Gillespie is a special adviser to the Romney campaign. He is very close to Karl Rove and the Bush family. He was the campaign manager for Chris Christie when… Read more »

Personally, I would not stake anything of any value on a Daily Beast article, particularly considering the entire article lacks any kind of context for quotes attributed to an email from the Governor and Boyer presents a lot of conjecture/extrapolation through out the piece. You are aware that the Daily Beast is the online version of Newsweek (hardly a source of any credibility in itself)? Not to mention their “motto” in their logo of “Read this, skip that” accurately depicts their approach to journalistic integrity and how they “engineer” the content of what they present. As to the candidate we have in Romney, well suffice it to say, he is what we have to go with. He was not even my fourth or fifth choice for a candidate, in November we here in Montana will have a choice between three candidates (we do have a write-in option on all ballots… Read more »

Thanks again Scoop, you are amazing! Another great interview. What a consummate team player. She will fight for all Americans, she will be supportive without being intrusive and she will continue to do her thing which is elect Constitutional conservatives down ticket. The latter just might be the salvation of America as we wish it to be (i.e. restored and healthy). Again, unlike some of the dead weight in the GOP she will run a positive, articulate and direct campaign for conservative principles and against Obama’s marxism.

If I were Romney I would assign Sarah, Newt and Sununu the job of bringing down the media. They can concentrate on the economy as the pick of Ryan would suggest. Let Romney’s team concentrate on Obama’s ridiculous campaign and do their oppo-research and feed that to the take-down team. Newt could school the media, Sununu could laugh at them, and Sarah could smile sweetly while she delivers her pointed barbs the media’s way. Frankly, I would ignore Obama while the whole team concentrates on his record. Nothing he says will be a game changer, now. Go on major offense with what he has done to this country.

There is no doubt Ryan will be scrutinized, but I’m not so sure he will be “palinized.” Not for anything, but Ryan’s been in congress for nearly 14 years. Sarah was barely known by anyone in the lower 48. She was like a blank canvass for the lamestream media. They could paint her to be anything they wanted. It won’t be quite as easy with Ryan, who already has a much longer public record, with plenty of video footage as well. I’m not saying they won’t demonize him, but I don’t think it will be as easy to do to him what they did to Sarah. I’m still fuming mad over what the left got away with, and I’m mad at the GOP establishment too, but thanks to Sarah, we have come a long way since then.

It’s the GOP establishment; they have no backbone and just refuse the fight democrats other than other conservative republicans. I wonder where would we be if they had just a little of the fight that Sarah Palin shows all the time. It’s as if fighting for their beliefs is so foreign to them. Well probably not so foreign they fight the conservatives all the time. We see the democrats fighting for marxist ideas all the time and we, the fighters, know that our ideology is so far superior than theirs but the GOP doesn’t go toe-to-toe with these people. Well the economy is on the plate right now and we will see how they defend taking $700B from Medicare, and the horrible economic numbers before us today. Yea, you marxist democrats, go ahead, defend that!

The staff knew after September 15 that McCain was going to lose. So they were already looking for employment elsewhere. Palin was a scapegoat, in large part because they wanted to knock her out of the political picture and pave the way for Romney in 2012. They could SEE the crowds and SEE the response to Palin. But their future depended on defaming her. Little did they know that her followers would morph into the Tea Party movement.

Rosie, I like Sarah too. There is a reason for that. Sarah connects with ordinary Americans on a very basic, gut instinct level. Any one of us could see ourselves living right next door to her. She is just so perfectly normal and she loves this country like we do and she can’t stand all the hypocrisy that exists in most of our politicians, both Liberal and Conservative. There is nothing complicated about Sarah Palin. That’s what scares the hell out of the Liberals and the Republican Establishment.
