Audio: Palin and Laura Ingraham knock Obama on abortion, Ayers

posted at 6:45 pm on October 9, 2008 by Allahpundit

Via Breitbart, it’s red meat served rare, without any side dish in the form of a question about immigration. Maybe next time. There’s an odd symmetry between the two subjects they do broach, though, in that conservative blogs pushed them ad nauseam in the spring and summer and only now, in the middle of an economic meltdown, is Team Maverick trying to force them onto the media’s plate. What might have been.

Exit question: What’s Palin’s answer to Ingraham’s question about the first thing she’d do as VP for the pro-life movement? She seems to say that she’d simply try to provide a good example for people to follow, but she’s already done that per Trig and in any case I suspect social cons are hoping for more.

Yes and no. As VP she would have the national spotlight and subsequent bully pulpit, whether the Drive-Bys like it or not.

Actually I think that is the single greatest thing she can do to help bring about a culture of life. If we get that and McCain works with the ACLJ and Federalists Society on judges with the connections and informal apparatus Bush set up that will be enough for me.

As VP, make sure this issue is made a top priority both in the form of judges and lay out a legislative roadmap that will proactively chip away at abortion.

You know what? We’re just trying to get these people elected! Why would she alienate many, and incite more feminist frenzy by going off any stronger on abortion? She really can’t afford it. Lets stop telegraphing everything- if Sarah Palin can get into office she can shout from the rooftops, but until then, it needs to be ALL about Obama. Now is not the time tomake people question their position on abortion- and conservatives know where she, and they, stand on the issue.

Guess the Ingraham/Palin conversation will help turnout, but given the economic fear among voters today don’t know the issues they are discussing will help swing independent voters during the next 3 weeks.

It’s become glaringly obvious that the reason she’s not being asked about immigration in any of these interviews with Hannity, Laura, etc. is that they know she agrees with McCain. It’s the only plausible explanation.

Abortion is an issue with me..not the most important one, but close. I am so sick of the women who think the Constitution provides abortion as a right.

Anyway..Obama support killing babies once they are born. Pre-viable fetus my butt! What if his mother had chosen to have an abortion than have him?

becki51758 on October 9, 2008 at 7:08 PM

I don’t have a link, but a recent Gallup poll asked whether the candidates’ positions on abortion made respondents more or less likely to vote for them, among other questions Obama got +7% on the abortion question (% more likely – % less likely) and McCain got -1% on it. This is in line with recent polls showing a small plurality for the pro-choice position over the pro-life position, in generic terms. I’m not sure if abortion is the right angle to attack this year.

Big S on October 9, 2008 at 7:08 PM

AnnieKC has it right. Abortion is a lightning-rod issue, and lots of liberals hate Palin for her own position. Her answer–living it in her own life, is perfect for now–conservatives know where she stands, and she can’t get nailed by the liberals for favoring coat-hanger abortions unless she takes a stronger stand.

Besides, no one can get an anti-abortion bill through a Democrat Congress, and Roe v. Wade can only be overturned by the Supreme Court. The current Supreme Court is 5-4 pro-Roe, so the only way to overturn it is to replace one pro-Roe justice by an anti-Roe justice. McCain might be able to do that if he’s elected President and can sneak an anti-Roe justice past a Democrat Senate, in which case Palin might help break a Senate tie. But there’s no point in giving the opposition any more ammunition than they already have.

Steve Z on October 9, 2008 at 7:08 PM

Obama’s ‘Previable’ Answer to Rick Warren:

Rephrasing Rev. Warren’s question, Do babies fully born but of questionable viability “get human rights?” Obama said such infants are not eligible.

With regard to anniekc on October 9, 2008 at 6:57 PM, you would have us be like our opponents, who hide their true intentions in an onionskin of mendacity? I think all the candidates’ views on abortion are out there in the open, and Palin’s view is visibly out there to, both in word and in deed. She’s doing a good job of showing just how extreme Obama’s position is; the correctness of a position can be measured by the extremities needed to defend it. If you can live with the extremities, then the position is good. If you can’t, the position is bad. Obama had to sacrifice babies already born to support his position. Obama is saying he’d make his daughters undergo an abortion rather than saddling them with parenthood at a young age (as he implied that Sarah Palin is forcing her daughter to do). Hey, this stuff is personal, and personal is political!

unclesmrgol on October 9, 2008 at 7:08 PM

I’m curious how are they supposed to approach the economic issue differently then they have? Restate that Hoover raised taxes? I’m not being snarky, I just don’t see a winning message. They both voted for the bailout rescue bill, so they both have delegated any change to SecTreasury. I don’t think it’s a winning issue, I could be wrong, but I think they poll about the same in economics, and I think the public is starting to see the problem as bigger then either candidate.

Nice interview. Palin sums up her appeal in one sentence during her answer on Acorn: ‘Doesn’t anyone have a conscience anymore?’

Maybe Ingraham wanted Palin to say she’d be willing to guest host on the Supreme Court, or vet candidates maybe (which would sound bad). Not sure what she can do really as VP.

Spirit of 1776 on October 9, 2008 at 7:12 PM

She could be a movement leader in the same way that Reagan was when he wrote Abortion and the Conscience of a Nation during his first term in office.

Which is what I want. No more of this “safe, legal and rare” crap. Get out there and talk about the scourge that is this nation’s attitude about abortion and lead the way in changing people’s attitudes. She can do that, based on her persuasive ability and her experience with the issue.

We get her out there repeating many of the same themes as Reagan did in his article and we will start to influence this country in getting its attitude correct on abortion.

Or that she disagrees and that will push the sore point with us conservatives into the front of everything else and give the perfectionists a reason to sit it out or protest vote for Obama with their temper tantrum masquerading as strategery.

aikidoka on October 9, 2008 at 7:17 PM

The pro-life issue resonates with many Democrats as well. I hope McCain and Palin continue to bring it up. The main reason they need to bring it up is because of how far to the left Obama is. INFANTICIDE. Would be the word that comes to mind. And he calls McCain irrational! It is just another radical frame of mind that Obama has that most Americans do not have.

This is just one more issue along with the Ayers, Rezko, Wright, Pflegger, Odinga, Khalidi, etc., that paints Obama as rather unsavory. It has to be showing up in the internals as well.

lorien1973 on October 9, 2008 at 7:23 PM

Rule of thumb on abortion is that the one who raises it suffers. However, she’s fully prepared to take Obama to the supply room when the topic does come up, and McCain also wasn’t hesitant at all on the topic when it came up at the Wisconsin town hall. Indeed, if it hadn’t been for the naming names and the socialism question, his description of Obama as an extremist on “choice” would have gotten more attention. In a normal election, his language and his accusation would have been worth a week!

Unless the opportunity presents itself in a public forum – like the remaining debate, and even then – it’s going to be up to the life community to ensure that knowledge of Obama’s past and his commitments become common knowledge to the saturation point among all those who might vote on it.

CK MacLeod on October 9, 2008 at 7:26 PM

it needs to be ALL about Obama. Now is not the time tomake people question their position on abortion- and conservatives know where she, and they, stand on the issue.

Don’t know if they can succeed with an economic message, but that will be the #1 voter issue on election day. If we continue on the trajectory of the past 2 weeks, it will be the only issue on people’s minds–given that GM looks like it it might implode like Lehman, Bear and AIG.

McCain is naturally comfortable and sharp on military issues, but when it comes to the economy he seems rehearsed and vague. Maybe McCain/Palin can emphasize some of these:

1.) Be able to name a Treasury Secretary other than Obama-supporter Warren Buffett.
2.) Pin blame for the GSE’s on Democrat mismanagement and corruption.
3.) Articulate a framework for effective government oversight of the markets without government interference.
4.) Speak to the dangers of protectionism and how Obama is given to making some of the same mistakes that were made during the Great Depression.
5.) Emphasize the role of POTUS in being able to be first among world leaders when coordinating the global response.
6.) Develop a simple and clear map of how the global credit crisis will lead to job loss in the U.S. and have McCain convince voters that he has absorbed the issue and will be looking out for their jobs, as a quality-of-life and national security issue.

I think your 6 points have merit. I also think they can do that and talk about Obama’s past. He did 4 a lot over the summer, and I’m not sure he can do 3. It seems to me that the best he can do is lay the blame at Dodd and Franks feet, because I don’t think either candidate has enough credibility on economic issues to give him an edge.

KBird on October 9, 2008 at 7:53 PM

KBird on October 9, 2008 at 7:58 PM

After 4 years of education from conservative/libertarian think tanks, she’ll be ready to run for President. She also needs to distance herself from the neoconservatives (sorry neocons here at Hotair).

When I used the word neoconservative, I was referring to anyone who believes that the US has a duty to engage in nation building by overthrowing undemocratic, oppressive regimes with military force and trying to establish new, democratic governments in place of those regimes. Neoconservatives (in the way I was using the term) don’t necessarily need to subscribe to traditional conservative values such as limited government, traditional mores, free market capitalism, etc. Basically, anyone who takes an idealist approach to foreign policy, as opposed to a realist approach, is a neoconservative. For instance, Joe Lieberman and Charles Krauthammer are probably neoconservative, but Pat Buchanan and Ron Paul are not.

This may not be the most erudite definition of the word neoconservative, but I’m not a political scholar anyway. If any of you think I’m using the word incorrectly, tell me what you think it really means.

My problem with many neoconservatives is that they don’t really care so much about conservative values. All they want to do is to engage in nation-building. For instance, I don’t think George Bush has done much for the conservative movement. The Republican Party has alienated the libertarians and the Ron Paul conservatives, many of whom are voting for Obama because of the Iraq War. If the Republican Party wants to win elections in the future, it needs to win back these defectors by espousing a more modest foreign policy.

By the way, why do people here at Hotair dislike Ron Paul so much, other than the fact that he wants to pull out of Iraq?

MedSchoolCatholic on October 9, 2008 at 8:16 PM

but Pat Buchanan and Ron Paul are not.

But, they are both anti-Semites and I have absolutely no use for them.

He has a different view of Americans then most Americans and conservatives. And to expand his base and ability to express his message, he used racism.

Incidentally, he pals around with truthers.

Spirit of 1776 on October 9, 2008 at 8:23 PM

Help me on this one guys, because perhaps I don’t know everything I should about Pat Buchanan and Ron Paul. What have Pat Buchanan and Ron Paul done or said to warrant being called anti-Semites besides arguing that the US shouldn’t be supporting Israel so forcefully?

MedSchoolCatholic on October 9, 2008 at 8:25 PM

Hahahaha.

MKH agrees with me and others that the obama campaign must have some internals that is causing them to believe that the Ayers attacks are hurting them.

She also says the coverup is worse than the original transgression, i.e., all of Obamas lies about his relationship with terrorists.

Blake on October 9, 2008 at 8:25 PM

He used racism in his newsletters to appeal to what people like to call the far right wing. After 88 and his run he knew he had to expand the base to expand libertarianism, so he went for the low-hanging fruit.

His defenders like to argue that he himself isn’t racism. That may be true. But he used racism for political gain, and that makes him no friend of mine.

She seems to say that she’d simply try to provide a good example for people to follow, but she’s already done that per Trig and in any case I suspect social cons are hoping for more.

As long as she supports overturning Roe v. Wade and leaving the question of abortion to the state legislatures (or even to Congress), I’ll be fine with her stance. I just want my public leaders to be true to the Constitution (in its strict constructionist interpretation). That’s my paramount wish. This is why I’m probably more supportive of people like Ron Paul than most people here at Hotair are.

MedSchoolCatholic on October 9, 2008 at 8:33 PM

Anti-semitism comes in many forms, one of them being revisionist history of the Holocaust. Buchanan tried to sell the idea through his book that the Final Solution didn’t kick off until the Wansee Conference in Jan. 42, as a result of the US entering the war. Bull.

Blake on October 9, 2008 at 8:37 PM

Most people shun him and his supporters. I’ve noticed his bots have deleted any criticism from his wiki page. That’s another reason why people don’t like him. His followers are obsessive and deliberately screw up ever poll and anything else they can weasel there way into. Again, he aligns himself with anti-Semites and is a truther.

I wish those people understood that Obama’s campaign promises will most likely not reduce our war involvement. He will just shift our military actions from protecting our national security to clumsy and meddlesome global do-gooding. And I suspect that the world’s troublemakers are in gleeful anticipation of the day when the US puts a bowl of jello in the Whitehouse.

Well those are interesting charges… Anyway, I’m still trying to figure out what exactly these paleoconservatives believe, especially with respect to foreign policy. That’s why I plan to read Buchanan’s latest book THE UNNECESSARY WAR, which apparently argues that Britain and the US should not have tried to help to stop Hitler. That sounds a bit extreme, but I’m keeping an open mind.

SheofTwoMinds on October 9, 2008 at 8:59 PM

Yeah, Obama would be worse on foreign policy. He has sounded pretty hawkish too lately, asserting that he’d intervene in places like Sudan.

But she is preaching to the choir. Most, probably 99%, of Laura’s audience like Sarah Palin, and will vote for the ticket. The problem is the rest of the country.

The MSM will not give her a fair hearing, so she’s probably best out on the stump, talking to large crowds, and saying things the media can’t ignore.

Sarah Palin is really becoming a skilled apologetic for the campaign. She’s incredible considering all she needed were two MSM interviews under her belt to completely come into her own. The first two may have been rocky, but she’s very relaxed and articulate in every subsequent interview since the VP debate where she wiped the floor with Biden.

Mojave Mark on October 10, 2008 at 12:20 AM

Someone raised the issue of abortion at the townhall in WI. McCain gave a generic answer, but Sarah followed up by mentioning Obama’s vote on the Born Alive Act.

The last debate is supposed to be on domestic policy, so that would be a good time to ask Obama to defend his position.

It is the economy . I all most said stupid. Why did I not say stupid? The americans are not stupid but most likely the best informed people in the world. the americans are not stupid but ignorant.

Why is it that john mccain does not just place blame to the cause of the current economy. The fact is that most of the problem rests toataly with the failed practice of the fannie and freddie gse’s.

And who is responsible? the liberal congress of the u.s. and thier association with freddie and fannie. WHEN PEOPLE IN THE CONGRESS TRIED TO REIGN IN THESE GSE S THE PEOPLE WHO HAD AN AGENDA TO BUY VOTES PROTECTED THIER CRONIES WHO WHERE IN FACT RIPPING THE U.S. ECONOMY.

john mccain and several other republicans tried to warn
us . These same repulicans were called racists and hate mongers of the poor a typical socialist mantra.

So here we are today with a weak economy that the dems caused and will not take responsibility for.

And bye the bye the stock market is not doing well not because of the current credit crunch but THE FACT THAT INVESTORS ARE AFRAID THAT OBAMA WILL BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT AND HE WILL IN FACT CAUSE THE NEXT GREAT DEPRESSION WITH HIS HOOVER LIKE POLICIES!
