Video: Matalin thinks Palin is “brilliant” for resigning

posted at 6:30 pm on July 4, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

And now, just to be fair, the other side of the argument. Posted without editorial comment; you already know my opinion as someone who had never written a post critical of Palin before yesterday, and if you don’t, feel free to click on the links in the Top Picks column. Mary Matalin offers this analysis, transcript via Crooks & Liars:

MATALIN: Well, I think it’s really brilliant, with two caveats, one being that there’s nothing else, ala the Sanford fiasco. There’s nothing else that we don’t know. If all that’s there is what we see right now, it’s brilliant.

And, secondly, that she has a plan and people have a plan to put up with the conventional wisdom, chatterati and the political class saying how stupid it is, because it’s brilliant.

On the substance, there’s the key economic issue — I know everyone says — thinks it’s health care, but it’s really energy. And she’s the queen of energy.

And the second big issue for 2012 will be the role of government. And she has a record of reform and ethics reform and making government smaller and reigning in spending — all those issues that are getting increasingly important as Barack Obama expands on his agenda.

So — and her delivery was incredible — a charis — a less charismatic person probably couldn’t pull it off. But as — as already referenced, she will be freed up and liberated in the way Mitt Romney is here to run around and raise money and get political chips by spending it and get political capital. And she is still raising the kinds of crowds and money that she always did.

Follow the link to C&L if you want to hear a rebuttal from David Gergen and Ed Rollins, the latter of whom has been around Republican campaigns for a very long time.

Update: My caveat in the opening paragraph wasn’t about getting “beat up”; I’m a big boy, and I can take honest criticism. It’s correcting the falsehood in the comment strings that I’ve been a Palin-hater. If people actually read what I’ve written about Palin over the past year, nothing could be further from the truth. I’m going to give people my honest opinion, no matter what.

As for using the clip from C&L, er, so what? This segment is from CNN. I couldn’t find it on YouTube or on CNN’s site when I had a few minutes to post. Someone asked me if I would be fair and post Matalin’s defense after our criticism of Palin, and I posted what I could find of it.

After this resignation, if Palin becomes president and foreign leaders start calling her kids poopie heads, it appears she will quit.

csdeven on July 6, 2009 at 11:12 AM

Too bad her enemies couldn’t stop at “poopie head”. Most folks seem to understand that she resigned as Governor, but hasn’t quit the cause.

littleguy on July 6, 2009 at 11:21 AM

Americannodash on July 6, 2009 at 11:16 AM

Irrespective of your attempt to try and label me, the fact remains that she quit her job. That will follow her for many years and her opponents, dem and rep alike, with hammer her with it unmercifully. And since the pressure of attacks have made her quit this job, they will be encourage to pressure her to drop out of any race she joins.

That is just common sense.

csdeven on July 6, 2009 at 11:22 AM

But Mitt? Given his “promise anything for a vote” and his campaign platform’s Socialist agenda to unite private industry with government…

If quitting her job ends up making her accomplish much for the country, her opponents will not want to bring it up because it will show her wisdom.

A lot depends on what happens from here, and whether her primary opponents line up against her or line up with her to seek the good of the country above their own self-interest.

justincase on July 6, 2009 at 11:25 AM

Sarah is supposed to be the anti-Ochimpy candidate. The people who vote for her would never compare her to a despicable turd like Ochimpy.

So to justify what Sarah does by pointing to Ochimpy is not good. We expect more from her.

littleguy on July 6, 2009 at 11:29 AM

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. So exactly what was Palin supposed to accomplish by staying in a job that required her to be a hand-tied punching bag for crooks and jerks? What character trait would be displayed by her willingness to spend precious time in that scenario? That she’s a willing domestic abuse victim, always thinking it’s her duty to sit still and take it? Is that what we need?

justincase on July 6, 2009 at 11:30 AM

littleguy on July 6, 2009 at 11:26 AM

For someone who values her family over public office, yes.

But for a career politician it was a move that opens her up for even MORE attacks. And now, even people like me who understood what was happening and didn’t hold it against her, we have to question her commitment if it were to get too much for her family again.

csdeven on July 6, 2009 at 11:30 AM

csdeven on July 6, 2009 at 11:12 AM

So you think it is okay for her 14 year old to read in the MSM that her sister is a whore, and her brother is a useless piece of meat, being drug around.
You think that what she and her children have endured is the same as calling someone a “poodlehead”.
That is the demeaning type of remark that is so irksome and tiresome, you minimize the devasting attack on her children.
Unlike you, they are probably well read, and are part of a family.
But then you were the one who derided Fred driving in a “red truck” but loved that fact that Romney kids drove a RV across the country.
Hey, live with it, Palin kicked Romney’s butt, she embarrassed him.
Meanwhile, you can take your snide “poodlehead” remarks, and shove it…you don’t care that a family is torn apart by some TV host exclaiming that your daughter is a whore, and will be raped…and you would sit there and embrace it and liken it to “poodlehead” I think we know who the Poodlehead is on this post….you. Raped any little girls lately, weren’t you the one accused of that?

right2bright on July 6, 2009 at 11:31 AM

She handled until she couldn’t handle it. She resigned because the attacks made her ineffective.

Csdeven, if Mark Sanford was saying he was going to screw whoever he wants whenever he wants and Jenny just needs to suck it up and live out her commitments…. would you call her a quitter for divorcing him? Or would you respect her for it? What would be gained by either staying or leaving?

justincase on July 6, 2009 at 11:32 AM

csdeven on July 6, 2009 at 11:22 AM

I understand your point but your statement assumes that there is never an okay time to quit. I argue sometimes it’s the right thing to do. I think she has a valid reason as to why she quit – one that folks outside the beltway will connect with – protecting your family, especially from the liberal attack machine. I know it makes me more sympathetic to her.

Good lord, as she has to do is look into the camera and tell every parent in America she was tired of the ruthless attacks on her children. What mother or father in America would say…oh you just should allow the attacks?

She also has a “helping the people of Alaska” slant to it, which helps her even more.

As I said in my last post, the one thing she has to do is differentiate why the attacks in Alaska drove her out but attacks in Washington would be lesser ones she could roll with. Maybe it’s because even Bill Mahar is too big a wuss to attack a sitting President’s children without fear of incredible backlash, (ala Letterman) resulting in his mea culpa to the media. Maybe the ethics complaint so easily tossed around in Alaska are a far bigger thing when it’s a President we’re talking about.

Any way, just some food for thought.

BPD on July 6, 2009 at 10:56 AM

I said this somewhere upthread (or in one of these threads!) but I think people can’t wrap their brains around this because honest politicans are so rare. So when we encounter one, it’s like the Twilight Zone or something. People can’t conceive of how a governr might actually put the greater good of the people of her state ahead of her own personal ambitions.

She accomplished what she set out to accomplish as governor, primarily getting Exxon off their lazy asses and start drilling, and launching the pipeline project. Both are underway and in apparently good hands with Parnell who is not the lightning rod for the media, the lying bloggers, Axelrod’s astroturfers and ankle-biters on the ground, not to mention all of her adversaries in the legislature. These people have hamstrung every other move Gov. Palin has tried to make since last fall and while they haven’t been successful at making any of their ridiculous charges stick, they have been successful at creating massive gridlock. How would it serve her to continue on as governor, while trying to do a book tour and campaign for other GOP candidates, all the while her enemies are filing one charge after another against her? Nothing would EVER get done, it would cost countless more taxpayer dollars to wage the war. Then come 2012, the meme would be, “Gov. Palin, the most investigated governor in U.S. history.” Don’t think the SRM would miss a single opportunity to point out how her circus of an administration cost Alaskans millions upon millions of dollars. The fact that she has been and likely would have been found innocent of all charges would be irrelevant. All people would hear is “most investigated” and “ethics complaints” and “millions of dollars wasted.”

This is the Alinsky games folks. And rather than allow herself to remain a sitting duck until practically right up until the start of primary season — because no way, no how would the loyal footsoldiers on the ground have allowed her to set foot outside the state before that — and possibly ruin her chosen successor’s chances for taking over the reins so he can continue to advance her legacy — the pipeline — she did something they never expected: She got out of the game! It’s genius, really, if you think about it. Now SHE is in control of what the narrative will be in 2012, or 2016, or whenever she decides to run. Of course she will be labeled a quitter. So what? Had she stuck around, she would have been labeled a dozen other things. The SRM is a lost cause anyway. Now she has the power to go directly to the people, her grassroots supporters, via technology like Twitter and Facebook, and who knows what else she has up her sleeve. It’s word of mouth that will get her elected, not an endorsement from the SRM. That was never forthcoming in the first place; her quitting won’t change that.

Just do like Rush suggests and wait and see. Who knows what she has up her sleeve. Maybe it was a stupid move, and maybe it just revealed her to be the shrewdist tactician we’ve seen on our side in a long, long time.

Of course, not. I just wholeheartedly concur with the lass and share her deep concern the media will stop showing it’s abiding, deep love to Sarah Palin. And I’d hate to force MSNBC, for example, to stay in the Obama/Palin/MSM mutual admiration society against it’s will! :)

whatcat on July 6, 2009 at 11:34 AM

The campaign for 2012 shouldn’t start for another 2 years. In that time, all the potential candidates would gain respect and credibility by standing together to fight the real enemy. And – dare I say it – if they won’t work together as a unit, then the one who is most effective in these 2 years will have a glowing resume.

justincase on July 6, 2009 at 11:20 AM

.
2012 is a distant concern for me right now. My focus like many here at HA have been expressed and focused accordingly to 2010 as of the recently past comments on other threads (prior to 7/3). The focus should be on the house of representatives and what republican seats can be won back in the elections of 2010. You can bet that the left is thinking the same thoughts. Almost everything else is a distraction. 2012 campaign will just have to take a back seat and wait for now.

Americannodash on July 6, 2009 at 11:35 AM

And since the pressure of attacks have made her quit this job, they will be encourage to pressure her to drop out of any race she joins.

csdeven on July 6, 2009 at 11:22 AM

Certainly it’s going to dog her and she’ll have to answer her critics with a convincing argument. But let’s try a thought experiment here: Let’s say a sitting governor, through no fault or her own (or his own), finds that her mere presence in the office is inhibiting the normal operations of government and preventing her from effectively putting forward her agenda and serving the people of her state.

Accepting for the moment that premise, is not the best thing that she can do for the state, be to step aside and let another person, whom she believes to be capable, take over?

right2bright on July 6, 2009 at 11:31 AM

You are missing the point. If she becomes president and the attacks continue from here and abroad she will either react like she has or will change the way she deals with it. If the latter is the case, then she quit a less demanding job and people will judge that she can’t handle a bigger job. If she says she will change the way she will deal with it, people will wonder why she didn’t do so in the first place.

It isn’t like Sarah is going to run unopposed in any race. She will have to defeat GOP candidates fist and then take on the dems. She has given them ammunition that they will use to destroy her.

Feeling sorry for her is the same as making her a victim of the bad media and the Palin haters. Awwwwww….poor Sarah.

THAT is EXACTLY how it will play out.

I agree that she has violated the conventional wisdom and I don’t know if it will pay off or not. I do find it hard to believe she could be attacked more than she already has, though. As for her commitment, her talk about a “higher calling” tells me she is taking the risk that some folks, like yourself, won’t understand in order to find higher ground. If I’m wrong on this, I’m no worse off than before she came along.

littleguy on July 6, 2009 at 11:38 AM

csdeven on July 6, 2009 at 11:38 AM

Again, I think the difference is between being Governor of Alaska and President of the United States. Foreign heads of states aren’t going to call her kids names. That’s just silly and illogical. NO rational person does that. Even Kim Jong ill keeps his remarks to “the west” or “America” in general. I don’t think he’s called Obama’s kids a nasty name. We leave that sort of stuff for the intellectual elite on the left.

Now would they have the balls to Hammer a President’s kids like they did to her as Governor? I doubt it. That’s a whole different ball game.

Thunderstorm129 on July 6, 2009 at 11:41 AM

When the lawsuits began being filed, and some of the testimony of her vile attacks begin to play out, most everyone who has a family will begin to see that she made the right move.
Changing the way Washington does business, has been her theme, and exposing these creeps will be worth whatever weak excuse they have for her quitting to rescue her family.
Child molestation, and the hint of, is not a laughing matter to most mothers…some guys on here think it is just fine, and probably have fantasized about such things….but most mothers fear for their daughters safety.
What father could possibly stand by and let a national TV host call there daughter a whore, and call for the rape of their daughter over several nights…now they can be unleashed.
Being a public official means you have to accept those things, being a private citizen, you can fight back.
Her lawyers have already set the ground rules.
I have a feeling some of the posters will regret not reading about molesting her daughters…

littleguy on July 6, 2009 at 11:44 AM

Csdeven, you’re missing the point. Cloward-Piven/Alinskyism is a dysfunctional system. Do you want a politician who is willing to accept that a “good wife” just has to live with crap like that? Why? Why we can’t we duck so their own swinging fist hits them in the face?

Palin could frame herself as the poor,pitiful victim. She’s choosing not to. She’s choosing to duck the people who are using her for a punching bag and then come out swinging her own fists.

Say what you will about her, but she is anything but a quitter. She’s a smart fighter. And that means more to me than her need to stay in an abusive situation in order to validate her own bravery.

You are upset because your man Mitt was taken out by someone much brighter, much more personable, much more accomplished…sorry Mitt is a loser.
Amazing you didn’t finish your post with a “you betcha”…all of them to demean a women in politics, a mother, and a mother of a special needs child…hey, bet you get turned on by her “whore” daughter huh?
The attack on her is unprecedented in U.S politics, you can’t come up with anything even close.
And people like Mitt stand around, that beautiful man, the righteous man, stand around and let the attacks continue because he gains a few votes because she defends her family….Mitt, some family values, it fits his life pattern, runs when it gets tough…remember, France during the Vietnam war?

Logical consistency.

littleguy on July 6, 2009 at 11:52 AM

Let’s try to think outside the box for second. Answer the following questions:

1. Can a governor resign his or her post to run for Senator?

2. Can a governor resign his or her post to run for Vice President?

3. Can a governor resign his or her post to take the job as head of a major Fortune 500 company?

I suspect that most pundits will answer “yes” for Questions 1 and 2, but “No” for Question 3. But in a sense they are all the same question in which a governor resigns in order to take a different job. I suspect political pundits see the situations as being different because they value politics and believe in political careers and thus anyone who leaves the reservation is guilty of betrayal or something. But if you believe that Question 3 is an act of a quitter, doesn’t it also apply to Questions 1 and 2?

Moreover, why is it better for a governor not to resign but merely to collect a paycheck while they spend all of their time competing for a new job? Why do we find Obama’s dereliction of job as Junior Senator of Illinois for 2 years, acceptable?

Try to think outside of the box for a second.

lonesomecharlie on July 6, 2009 at 11:55 AM

atheling on July 6, 2009 at 11:55 AM

right2bright, I think you’re not being fair to Mitt. When Mitt gave up the primary fight because he thought the country would be better served if he didn’t work to tear apart the eventual Republican candidate – that said a lot to me about his integrity and love for this nation. He’s a team player and I can easily respect the people who want him to be president.

His business world success is a different kind of accomplishment than Palin’s – some would say higher.

I do wish he and others would have fought what the media did to Palin, but I’m not so sure that they didn’t fight it when she was the VP candidate. I’m not ready to say he didn’t defend her because he wanted to tear her down. It could be that there wasn’t any good way to defend her.

You know how I react to personal attacks. As far as I am concerned, you have nothing left. You’ll simply have to read along as I explain my opinion to others.

csdeven on July 6, 2009 at 11:54 AM

Funny, you personally attack others, but then “take the high road” when you think you are being attacked personally.
Read again what you wrote…you can’t state something about Palin without a personal attack.
And I do know how you take attacks…I saw when Mitt got trounced, you left for months…you “quit” just like you accused Palin of.

Let’s be honest here and not try to spin things one way or the other. She did mention her family but she also mentioned how the national attacks and ethics complainets were making it impossible for her and her staff to effectively do their jobs and serve the people of Alaska. If we’re going to have an honest discussion, we can’t leave that out.

PackerBronco on July 6, 2009 at 11:59 AM

However, the only thing that I’m saying is that the speculation for quitting governor to run for president makes no sense at all.

rollthedice on July 6, 2009 at 8:56 AM

It makes no sense to you because you’re too superficial to actually think deeply about it.

You are also in need of some facts. It would have made you seem smarter if you had actually done some legwork and researched before opining and making yourself look ignorant. It would also help you and others who just came to this thread to read the commentary back at least 10 pages to get a clue as to what is being discussed here.

I am tired of repeating all the time. Stop being so lazy and use your brain.

I think this is a matter of trust . I trust her to do and be the right thing . President Reagan brought out the same feelings . We are saturated with BS everyday and her sincerity gets through.I think thats why the left is so scared of her.

Is a second marriage going to be harder? Depends on the rules you set for yourself. If you establish that you will not be walked on – and that becomes your reputation, if you are known to carry a big stick – chances are good that you will not marry into another abusive situation.

If Palin fights and defeats the media lies, then yes, a presidency for her OR FOR ANYBODY would be easier.

One of the main reasons I supported Fred! was because he seemed to understand that we have to reclaim the ground that has been handed over to a corrupt media. They will make toast out of anybody they want to – unless and until they hit somebody who fights fire with fire. That’s Palin.

So yes, if she does this right and if those of us who hate the lying media stand with her in the fight rather than siding with the media crapola, then it will be easier for anybody who wants to be an effective, accountable president.

justincase on July 6, 2009 at 12:01 PM

Mitt is sitting back hoping for Palin to fail…it was a couple of his men who defected to McCain that helped stoke the flames against Palin.
Mitt is not the “choir boy” you think he is, Palin is self made….Mitt had his father, one of the most powerful men in the U.S.
I mean, how else could he end up in France during the Vietnam war, after his father sat on a board and hammered out a deal with the selective service that Mormon missionaries would not be drafted….what a coincidence.
sorry, look at Mitt’s supporters, basically the same group that supported his father, Marriot’s, Bechtel, etc.

right2bright on July 6, 2009 at 12:03 PM

Irrespective of your attempt to try and label me, the fact remains that she quit her job. That will follow her for many years and her opponents, dem and rep alike, with hammer her with it unmercifully. And since the pressure of attacks have made her quit this job, they will be encourage to pressure her to drop out of any race she joins.

That is just common sense.

Regardless of preconceptions of what the future holds for America as you see it unfolding for Sarah Palin, it only drags us to distraction of what is currently happening today and perhaps all of our tomorrows. The overall problems we are encountering or will be happenstanced should be focused on Obama and not Sarah Palin. Repeating yourself over and over again on this thread of what the media/pundit/bloggers have informed us already is getting tiresome. Move on to the real issues that are going to affect our daily lives. Sarah Palin is going off the radar now. Concentrate on Obama and his destuctive administrations proposals and policies. Okay?

Hopefully just typed it without thinking it through.

Thunderstorm129 on July 6, 2009 at 12:07 PM

OK, critique the speeches of Mitt Romney or Bush or Huckabee or Pawlenty using the same stringent standards. And how their oratorical shortcomings have influenced your distaste for them, and how such less-than-stellar speeches have branded them as hopeless idiots.
ddrintn on July 6, 2009 at 12:20 AM

Jeez, are you offering me a book deal? How much effort are you demanding I put into this exercise?

My preferred presidential candidates last season were Mitt and Rudy, and both of them are incapable of writing the gobbledygook that Sarah came up with in that speech. Fred Thompson and Newt Gingrich also have stellar writing skills.

Maybe Sarah should study their speeches for content, and they can learn something from her about dynamic delivery.

Buy Danish on July 6, 2009 at 9:13 AM

Remove “content” and I’d agree that classical construction is the hallmark of masterworks. Nonetheless, idea determines form. Palin’s ideas are the “content”; and given her nature, she is refining now what she deems of worth, giving herself time to study.

Having supported Fred Thompson’s bid to lead, because of his political convictions and his “hands down” personal strengths as a POTUS, I rest assured that Palin will learn well from Thompson because they share the same passion for our Constitution.

But Mitt? Given his “promise anything for a vote” and his campaign platform’s Socialist agenda to unite private industry with government, I disagree with your point that “Maybe Sarah should study their speeches for content”. Romney would enable the good ol’ boy corrupt GOP progressive network augmenting mandates and big government. Mitt is Hatch’s and Cornyn’s kid gloves.

Buy, you deny that Romney ever told his campaign staff to promise anything, whatever it takes to get their votes? Big government jobs.

A Romney devotee presumed to lecture Palin to adopt Romney’s content, then denounced those who prefer Palin’s ideas as loons, and topped it off with a denial of Romney’s last platform and tactics that were steeped in glorified socialism trying to out perform the one uppers.

And Maverick Muse, I agreed with what was in the American Thinker link. I think Palin has made a risky but potentially game-changing move for the country – a much needed game change. So I’m not fighting your end conclusions.

But I have a lot of respect for Buy Danish. Before the election he had the best links and information regarding Obama’s past and agenda. He’s always been courteous and deep. He’s a good guy. I didn’t know he was a Mitt supporter because he was a team player as much as he could be.

How do we expect people to be willing to be on our team if we’re ready to tear them apart whenever we disagree? See, that’s another branch of the current political corruption that has everything messed up. The enemy can so easily divide and conquer, which is even worse than the media calling somebody “unelectable”. We don’t have the luxury of alienating people over piddles, or kicking them off of the team because of personality conflicts.

I don’t agree with Ed and AP about some things. But I would sure as heck rather have them on my team than off because they are right about more things than they are wrong, by far. I’m never going to find perfection – in myself or in others. The best I can do is nurture along the good and discourage the bad.

Did you ever read “To Kill a Mockingbird”? When the Cunningham clan comes to beat up Atticus Scout recognizes one of her classmates’ dad. She strikes up a conversation with him, ignorant of what was really going on there. Her civility defused the situation and ultimately that Cunningham was the only one on the jury willing to give justice a fair hearing.

Tell that to the purported conservatives who are constantly sniping at Palin.

Did you see the tone of Jonah Goldberg’s open letter to Palin? His condescension and rudeness was amazing – and addressed to a sitting governor! Look at how quickly Morrissey jumped on the “she’s finished!” bandwagon, using links to RINOs like Gergens and Rollins.

Tell me, what Republicans have stood up for Sarah Palin while she took the heat of the past year? So far, I can only think of Rudy Giuliani on record for defending her recently. The rest either stood by with their mouths agape or joined in the sniping.

Some commenters here are the same. They all mindlessly chant the same, “She’s finished!” without thinking at all about the circumstances, the consequences of her staying in Alaska, and the financial fallout she is experiencing, not to mention the horrible emotional toll her family has taken.

Oh no, these people live in their good ole boy box, refusing to think or look outside of it.

This is why I’m fed up with the GOP and their blind followers. It’s a country club of rigid, shallow reactionaries who care more about being right than what’s good for the country. They look at everything with old, jaded eyes, shriveled souls, and a perpetual sneer on their lips.

The GOP will make the same stupid mistakes it made in 1992, 1996 and 2008, making what could be the easiest win in 2012 another blow out for them.

All because they don’t want to shake things up a little and take a calculated risk.

Well, I’m going with the risk. I don’t care what party Sarah Palin ends up with, but I trust her more than I trust any other pol, and I’ll fall behind her, despite any mistakes she may make, because I know that she has the ability, determination and love of country that takes priority over her career or her reputation.

atheling on July 6, 2009 at 12:48 PM

By her own account, Palin accomplished everything she wanted to as governor while succesfully defending herself against 15 ethics complaints (all 15 were dismissed).

Per Palin:

Political operatives descended on Alaska last August, digging for dirt. The ethics law I championed became their weapon of choice. Over the past nine months I’ve been accused of all sorts of frivolous ethics violations – such as holding a fish in a photograph, wearing a jacket with a logo on it, and answering reporters’ questions.

Every one – all 15 of the ethics complaints have been dismissed. We’ve won!

So why did you resign? Wasn’t there anything left to do? At the very least, the people of Alaska could have used her help reversing the costly ethics policy that she championed. The policy, in retrospect, appears to have a serious defect.

The Governor’s office does more than shape policy, it’s also a stewardship of the state. If Alaska experiences some kind of crisis in the next year, is the state better off without Palin’s leadership?

Palin’s rationale makes no sense. She’s already proven she can govern effectively and fight the frivolous ethics complaints (and run for vice-president, for that matter). Speculation will naturally turn to whether the next complaint might not have been so frivolous.

Palin has basically said, enough is enough “I am not going to take it anymore”.
…and you proved the point of why, in just a couple of posts.
Now hang your head in shame…
